Liam: I know the paternity test results weren't what we were hoping for. I know that we all--we all wanted the father to be finn. But that doesn't mean we can't make it work. We made it work with kelly. And I believe that we can do it again. This doesn't have to be the end for us. In fact, my thinking it was the end. My giving up on us, that is the mistake. I owe it to you to correct. So, no, I'm not gonna do that anymore, I'm not. I know you're in pain. I know you're-- you maybe in so much pain that you can't believe in us right now, and that's okay. That's okay. Because I'll believe for you. I'll believe double. Hope, I'll believe until the day I die and probably longer. Because that is my debt to you, now more than ever.

[ Phone dings ]

Finn: Amelia?

Steffy: Yeah. She's taking kelly for ice cream before heading back.

Finn: When will you tell kelly?

Steffy: About the baby? Um, I don't know.

Finn: She's gonna be so excited, new little brother or sister.

Steffy: Are you okay?

Finn: Yeah, I will be.

Steffy: I'm so sorry.

Finn: Me, too. We'll deal. We'll make it work. Somehow.

Steffy: Finn, I already love this baby. This life growing inside of me, but... why isn't it yours? This baby should be yours.

Vinny: Uh, any texts about the results yet?

Thomas: Uh, my dad's supposed to text me when he hears from steffy.

Vinny: Dude, be honest with me, between the two of us. You wanted this to be liam's kid, right?

[ Phone ringing ]

Brooke: Maybe that's steffy.

Ridge: No.

[ Phone ringing ]

>&gtRooke: We should've heard somethg by now, don't you think? What if...

Ridge: No more "wt ifs" that finn is the father, that'll be the end of it, okay? You wanna reach out to steffy? Okay.

Thomas: I wonder what's taking so long.

Vinny: Will you stop pacing, man? You're making me dizzy. All right. Look, since you didn't answer my question, uh, I think I'm guessing I'm right. I know you talk this big game about being changed and all. But if liam ends up being the father of steffy's kid, then you got an honest to god shot at hope, right?

Hope: I told you, liam, I don't wanna talk about it right now. It's all too soon. It's too much for me to process. All I keep hearing is that doctor saying that finn isn't the father.

Liam: I'm so sorry.

Hope: Please stop saying that. Your sorry isn't going to fix anything. And I know you never meant to hurt me like this, but it doesn't change the fact that you did. And it doesn't change the fact that you slept with steffy and now you're going to have another child with her. I mean, god! Liam! Why would you-- why would you do that? Why would you do that to us? To your family? Why?

[ Phone dings ]

Steffy: I'm so sorry, finn. I'm so sorry for not carrying your baby, for putting you through this. If you wanna walk out right now and never come back, I--

Finn: I would never do that. Listen, I love you too much. There's a lot we need to figure out. A lot of complications that...

[ Phone dings ] You--you should probably get that.

Brooke: Is it steffy? What did she say? No. It can't be.

Ridge: It's liam's kid.

Brooke: Hope. Hope.

I'm erin.

-And I'm margo.

Brooke: I can't believe this is happening to hope all over again. How much heartache can she endure?

Ridge: I'm worried about her, too. Worried about all of them.

Brooke: Bridget, honey.

Bridget: Mom?

Brooke: What are you doing here?

Bridget: Oh, it's a long story. But bottom line I'm filling in for a colleague at a medical conference. He said he got sick, so... ridge? Something--what's wrong? Mom? The paternity test results? Oh, no.

Ridge: We heard from steffy. It's liam's kid.

Steffy: Feels like you're holding a lot in and you're-- you're afraid to let it all out. It's okay, finn. You should.

Finn: I'm just--I'm just so damn angry. No, not at you. Not-- not at anyone. Really, it's just dr. Campbell, she was supposed to come in and she was supposed to say that I was the father of your baby. I was supposed to know what it feels like to be an expectant dad. Not just any expectant dad, the dad to your child. A woman that I love more than anything. I just... [ Sighs ] I start-- I started planning our life together as parents. I had a few baby names picked out. You know, I know. I just--I couldn't help myself. I got caught up in what am I be like.

Steffy: Oh, yeah, yeah, I, um... I had a few names picked out, too. One special one if it was a boy, john finnegan, jr. Look, finn, the one thing about this paternity result that hasn't changed is my love for you and yours for me. We can't lose sight of that. Our love can get us through this, okay? It has to.

Hope: Why? Why would you jeopardize everything that we fought so hard to build together? After everything we've been through. Our sweet little girl, beth. Thinking that she had died. All those months and months of anguish and grieving, then, totally find out the truth that she was alive and to get her back. To finally have her family back together again. And then, now this. One moment of insecurity and you've just gone and thrown it all away. We were solid. We were happy. We were a family. And now, it's been-- it's been ruined.

Liam: Listen, I'm--uh, I'm--I'm--I'm begging you not to see it that way. I did the unthinkable and I hate myself for it. But all I can do is appeal to your optimism. That--that--that superhuman ability you have to see the best in... everyone, including me. Please. Please, don't give up on us. Thousands of women with metastatic breast cancer,

Broke: I don't know what to do. I mean, do I call hope? I certainly don't want to intrude. But I don't wanna leave her alone either.

Bridget: Well, she's not alone. I mean, liam's with her, right?

Ridge: They were all together when they heard the news. And, brooke, I think, kind of, give them some time to come to terms with things.

Broke: How is my daughter supposed to do that? There should only be so much she has to take care of and handle.

Bridget: I agree, mom. I agree. But hope is resilient. Of course, she wanted a different outcome. Everybody did. But there's a little baby involved now.

[ Sighs ] Hope, liam, steffy, finn, they're all gonna have to make this work for the child's sake. And hope will, mom. She will. It's what my sister does. She puts her own heartbreak aside and she just does what needs to be done. Especially when children and family are involved.

[ Phone dings ]

Ridge: It's thomas. He wants to know if we heard anything.

[ Phone dialing ]

Broke: [ Sighs ]

Ridge: [ Sighs ]

[ Phone ringing ]

[ Phone beeps ]

Thomas: Hey. Uh, what happened? Is--is steffy's baby...

Ridge: It's liam's kid.

Thomas: Liam's? You're--you're sure?

Ridge: Yeah, I'm sure.

Thomas: All right. Uh, well, thanks for letting me know.

[ Phone beeps ]

Thomas: You heard?

Vinny: How do you feel?

Thomas: Doesn't matter how I feel. Not thinking about that. I'm thinking about hope. How she feels and she must be devastated.

Vinny: You're a good person, thomas. You deserve this.

Steffy: There's gonna be some major challenges ahead. But the one thing that can see us through this is our love. We could have a beautiful life together, a beautiful family, a child of our own one day, finn. I want that.

Finn: I want that.

Steffy: And I know you want that, too.

Finn: You know, I didn't realize how much until you told me you were pregnant. And I wanted so much for it to be mine, but it's not mine. I'm gonna have to watch you go through this pregnancy knowing that the baby that I wanted to be ours is yours with liam.

Steffy: [ Sighs ]

Finn: That's our reality. That's my reality now moving forward. Not only is he gonna be here for kelly, he's gonna be here for that little one, too. Liam is the father. That's gonna be hard for me to watch. This is gonna be even harder for hope.

Hope: [ Cries ]

Liam: Do you remember what you said to me before we found out the paternity test results? You said you wanted to try to start a new chapter, that you wanted to try to work, that you want--that you wanted to try to work through it because we're worth it, because our family is worth it. That meant everything to me. So, plea--please, please don't stop believing in us, please?

Hope: I've always believed in us, liam.

[ Cries ] I believed in your commitment to me, to beth, to douglas. But you, you were the one who betrayed your vows. And now, you're having a baby with steffy... again. And while she may have that sad little portrait of you on her wall, she certainly didn't have a ring on her finger. That's what doesn't makes sense, just how-- how this all happened. How you could turn to steffy before even thinking of coming to me, your wife? Who loves you more than anything.

[ Cries ] Do you understand how much that hurts, liam? And I can't-- I can't forget about it. I can't run away from it because steffy is having your baby. And steffy is having my husband's baby.

[ Cries ] I'm so tired of fighting. I'm so tired. I don't wanna do it anymore.

[ Crying ] Overspending on a retinol cream?

Thomas: I deserve this?

Vinny: You do. It's liam's kid now, right? That means he's got two. Count them two ankle biters with your sister. You know he's gonna go running back to her for sure. And that leaves a clear path for you to hope. Deservedly so in my opinion. Because guys like liam who waffle between two incredible women like hope--

Thomas: I get it.

Vinny: --And your sister, it's not...

Thomas: I agree with you. I said that for years now. Would I love to-- to be with hope? Yes. Absolutely. I think I can make her happy. And douglas will be thrilled. But I'm not gonna interfere. Understand?

Vinny: Okay. All right. I had to get back to work.

[ Sighs ] Just remember, man, fate works in mysterious ways. This is your chance to have what you've always wanted for you and dougie, a life with hope.

Liam: I know you're overwhelmed. I know you're in shock. If there's one thing all these years have taught me is that there is nothing we can't overcome. Our history, our entire history, if you think about it, it's just-- it's just been a series of forces trying to keep us apart. Steffy, my dad, thomas. Let's not forget my own diseased imagination. But we made it through. All of it. We have our precious beth. We have douglas. This is-- this is what we do best. We take the hit and we get back up again. It's--it's our talent. I'll always hate myself for the heartache I've caused you. I--I--I will. But I promise you, that is the fuel I'm going to burn spending the rest of my life protecting our love and our family, if you'll let me, if you'll let me. Please just-- just give me the chance.

Steffy: You came into my life, finn, and you changed it for the better. You helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life when I was battling addiction. You showed me that there was life after liam and I want that life. I want a life with you.

Finn: I want a life with you.

Steffy: We can have it. We can't allow this innocent child to come between us.

Finn: Is this something that we can do with another man's baby growing inside you?

Steffy: Yes. Yes, we can. Because a future without you is unthinkable to me. A life without you, I-- I don't even wanna think about. Please, don't give up on us.
