Hope: Liam, I think we just need to relax and get our mind on something else, okay? Steffy will call.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Is that her?
Liam: It's steffy. Hey.
Steffy: Hey, it's-- it's all done.
Liam: Uh, how'd it go?
Steffy: Fine. Dr. Campbell's asking to put a rush on it, but we're not gonna know today. Trust me, I've already asked. Soon though.
Steffy: If you believe in mother's intuition, then you and hope have nothing to worry about. I'm certain that this baby is finn'S.
Liam: Yeah. Okay. Well, let's hope you're right. Call me when you know more. Well, the paternity test is done.
Thomas: Steffy already took a paternity test?
Steffy: Oh! Hi.
Brooke: I knocked, but I don't think you heard.
Steffy: Yeah. I-- I was on the phone.
Brooke: I know what you did to my daughter.
Paris: Why does it seem like the dresses are in trouble?
[ Chuckles ] You're like mr. Intense, writing your notes on your little clipboard.
Zende: What can I say? I've got some pretty serious notes.
Paris: Okay, zende.
Zende: Okay. Uh, maybe I'm just tense.
Paris: Is there anything that I can help you with? There's obviously something on your mind.
Zende: Not something. Someone. Zoe. But not the way you're imagining.
Carter: I need to know. Am I the man you wanna marry?
Zoe: Yes. Of course, you are.
Carter: Why me? Out of all the men, why am I the one you wanna spend the rest of your life with?
Zoe: Okay. I--I don't know where this is coming from, but I--I don't know. I mean, there are so many reasons.
Carter: Really? I'd like to hear them. Even just one.
Zoe: Well, first off, you are so kind. You are--
Carter: And what, I'm-- I'm gullible? Is it me you want, zoe? Or is it zende? &
Paris: Zoe? I thought you said the flirty little games between you two were over.
Zende: Yes. Whatever was going on between us is over. The thing is, she and carter might be, too.
Zoe: What are you talking about? I don't know why--
Carter: Stop it. Ridge told me what he walked in on. Did you really tell zende that you should give into your feelings for each other?
Zoe: Okay. I--I can explain.
Carter: And please do. I wanna know what's been going on behind my back!
Thomas: Look, I didn't mean to just barge in like that. I was just surprised. That's all. So steffy already took a paternity test?
Hope: Well, the sooner we know, the sooner we can figure out how to move forward.
Thomas: Makes sense.
Liam: Well, she took it today. We just, uh... have to wait.
Steffy: I didn't intend to hurt hope.
Brooke: What did you think would happen? Sleeping with her husband, as if she hasn't been through enough already? Now, you wanna to destroy her marriage?
Steffy: Absolutely not!
Brooke: Well, that's what you're gonna do if that child is liam'S. But maybe that's what you want. To take liam from hope.
Br ushing only reaches
25% of your mouth.
Brooke: There are so many different ways you could have handled this, steffy. You could have encouraged liam to go talk to hope or maybe tell him to go spend the night at his father's or wyatt' s or a: Hotel for god's sakes. Instead, you gave him drinks and you consoled him.
Steffy: I was being a friend.
Brooke: A friend with benefits. And surprise, surprise, you're pregnant!
Steffy: Yeah, I am. And I just had my blood drawn, so we'll find out soon enough that it's finn's baby.
Brooke: Is that what you want?
Steffy: I do. And I believe it's finn'S. Don't ask me how. It's just a feeling that I have.
Brooke: Well, I certainly hope your "feelings" are right for everybody's sake, especially hope'S.
Hope: Were you looking for douglas? Because he's actually out on play date right now.
Thomas: So I should go. Got it. Um, one more thing. You think I'm enjoying this, liam? In the past, yeah, I--I would've come after you. But I'm not interested in that, okay? What I'm concerned about right now is steffy and that little baby that's inside of her if they're doing okay and also hope, obviously, because this has got to be affecting you. And that can't be good for beth or douglas to see you upset. All I wanted to say was that I'm here for both of you if you need anything at all.
Liam: Okay. Thank you.
Thomas: Hope, you are so strong. You and liam, you can make it through this no matter what that paternity test shows.
[ Door closes ]
Zoe: Look, nothing is happening between zende and me. I promise. Carter, he is your friend. He would never do that.
Carter: But if he did, if he wanted something to happen, it would've? Zoe--
Zoe: Look, please, you--you don't understand.
Carter: Then make me! Make me understand why you're throwing yourself at zende while you're engaged to me!
Zoe: I wasn't! I mean, I--okay. I--I guess I was just trying to gauge what he was thinking. And I--I know--I know--I know that's inappropriate, carter. Please, look, I--I love you. And I want this life that we've been talking about together, that we've been planning. Come on, carter. You know how much I care about you, how proud I am of you, everything that you've accomplished.
Carter: That's it. That's it. See, there--there it is. When you started showing interest in me, when I got the promotion, when I was promoted. You're only with me because I'm-- I'm forrester-adjacent, that I'm acceptable, something you can deal with. But if the real thing comes along, what, you just jump at it? You would've dropped me without a second thought like I'm nothing. You know, I don't even know why I'm shocked. It's so obvious the way you jumped at the chance to walk down the aisle with thomas. Admit it, zoe. Be honest. You never wanted me. What you really want... is to be a forrester. It's very common to have both
Zende: It feels like such a waste if carter and zoe were to end up breaking up now.
Paris: Now that she's done flirting with you?
Zende: Yeah, I know it sounds bad, but she is fully committed to him. At least, as far as I can tell.
Paris: Is that enough though for carter?
Zende: I don't know. I meant it when I said he deserves better.
Paris: I seem to remember you also saying that I deserve better, too.
Zende: You do. And if you haven't completely written me off, I'm hoping to prove that I'm capable of showing you what better can be. Much better.
Zoe: Carter, I hope you don't really think that because that isn't even remotely true.
Carter: I'm such an idiot. I am such an idiot. Trying to get you to lock down a date, I'm making plans when all along you've been biding your time, trying to get a better deal with zende! If you want him, you can have him. The engagement's off!
Zoe: No. You--you--you do not mean that!
Carter: We're not getting married, zoe. We're done!
[ Seabirds squawking ]
Steffy: Was my dad there when you found out?
Brooke: No. He doesn't know yet.
Steffy: Please just don't tell him. I want him to hear it from me.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Fine, as long as you're completely honest regardless of who the father is. I really don't wanna keep secrets from my husband. &
Steffy: Thank you.
Brooke: I can see that this is difficult for you.
Steffy: Yeah, extremely. But I'm not gonna let it overwhelm me. There's a life growing inside of me, a child I need to take care of. So I'm gonna keep the stress at bay. I have to, and I will. For this baby, I will do anything.
Vinny: Nice. How long are you crashing here, man?
Thomas: Not exactly sure. Uh, [ Laughs ] My dad and brooke aren't exactly rushing me out. They said I could stay as long as I'm recovering. So--
Vinny: Man, I--I still can't believe everything you went through. And you must think I'm the worst for not being around more. I--I'm sorry, man. I've just been backed up at work and I--like this--
Thomas: Hey, come on. No. I know you're busy, right?
Vinny: You know, I--I got some really good stuff on me. It's prescription-grade, it's straight from the source. It's expensive, but if--if you want it, I--
Thomas: Okay. After what I saw my sister go through, uh, I'm not touching any of that crap.
Vinny: All right. I'm--I'm just trying to help a friend out. Is something wrong?
Thomas: There's, uh, there's a lot going on.
Thomas: Okay. Uh, steffy's pregnant.
Vinny: Holy cow! That doctor works fast.
Thomas: Yeah. That's, um, sort of another thing. Um, the baby might not be finn'S. It might be liam'S.
Hope: You see now what I've been saying? That thomas isn't using this situation to undermine our marriage?
Liam: Even if he's being sincere, I don't love that he knows about all this.
Hope: He's not antagonizing you. He's not using it against you. I mean, you heard him. He wants us to get through this.
Liam: Uh, I--I heard. I heard. It just-- listen, I--I don't wanna spend any time worrying about thomas. Time will tell if he means what he says. But what he says are things honestly that--that's not what matters to me right now. The only opinion I care about is my wife'S. Your words, your thoughts and... hopefully, ultimately, your forgiveness. That's what matters to me. These are real people, not actors,
Zoe: Carter, please, I--I--I can't let you do this. So can we please just-- just go on with our life that--that we've been planning?
Carter: But we haven't been planning. I've been planning while you've been-- while you've been throwing yourself at zende. You know what, zoe? Let's just-- let's just call it. Take off the ring. We'll pretend it never happened.
Zoe: No, no! Carter, I don't wanna give up on us!
Carter: You already did. Do you realize how difficult this is for me? I loved you. I wanted to start a life with you, zoe. I don't-- I don't fall in love easily.
Zoe: I know. And I feel extremely lucky that you did with me. And, carter, listen to me, okay? I am fully prepared to convince you that we--we still have a chance.
Carter: I don't think that's possible.
Zoe: Okay. Then I'll make you see! I--I will. I--I--I have no idea what I was even thinking, talking to zende like that. And if I'm being honest, maybe it was just because I felt like me and you, we were moving so fast. And--and I--I just-- it sounds so silly now, but I got scared. But I'm not-- I'm not scared anymore. And look, anything that was even going on with zende, whatever that even was, it--it's over. Really! And that is my promise to you. Carter, I just-- I want a life with you and only you. Please, please, carter. Tell me that you still-- you still want that.
[ Crow cawing ]
Brooke: I'm not trying to add stress to your life if that's what you're thinking. Obviously, I want you to have a healthy baby.
Steffy: So coming here accusing me, that's supposed to be calming?
Brooke: My god, steffy! You slept with my daughter's husband! Do you expect me to stay silent?
Steffy: No, but I expected a little understanding coming from the woman who--
Brooke: Oh, god.
Steffy: Never mind. Look, you said what you needed to say. And if you really mean it, that you don't want me to stress out, then you better go.
Brooke: Fine. I'll go. But I'm not letting you off the hook. What you did to hope was reprehensible. You better be right. That baby better be finn'S. Not liam'S.
Thomas: So liam flipped out, thinking I was with hope, and he ran straight to steffy'S.
Vinny: Okay. And so now steffy's pregnant?
Thomas: It's probably finn's baby. But, I mean, it could be liam'S.
Vinny: Well, is she getting a paternity test?
Thomas: Yeah, actually. She got one today already. Um, I know that steffy wants it to be finn's, but it could turn out to be liam'S. And if so, then steffy could reunite kelly's family.
Vinny: And you could finally be with hope. If steffy is knocked up with liam's kid, there's no way hope's gonna put up with that. Hope could finally actually be yours. Depending on how the paternity test goes, of course.
Liam: Hey, you believe me, right? That you're my priority, you and our life and our family?
Hope: I know. But until we find out who the father is, I just-- I don't see how.
Liam: Well, the test is done and we'll, um, we'll know something soon.
Hope: Just pray it's finn'S.
Liam: That, even that means so much to me because it--it tells me that on some level, even-- even if deep down-- you want this marriage to work.
Hope: It's not about wanting. It's about what I can handle. I can want a life with you. But if the trust isn't there--
Liam: It will--it will be! It will be there. I will earn your trust back and you'll never have to question it again. And I know--I know these are just words, but I'm gonna show it to you with my actions. I'm--I'm gonna prove to you. You'll--you'll see how much I care about you. Look, you--you--you shouldn't be in this amount of pain. And I know that--I know that you're--you're nowhere even close to forgiving me yet. But if you-- if you're open to it, if you're just open to it, I--I will spend the rest of my life proving how much you mean to me because I love you. I always will.
