Steffy: I think it's time for Katie to release a new teaser and get some anticipation going for the new Hope for the future line, because not only do we have one designer, we have two incredible designers. And they are making magic.

Ridge: They are making magic. Zende and Thomas doing a great job but I think he need to talk to Hope about releasing a teaser about the timing of it.

Steffy: Yeah, I don't know if that's a good idea. Probably, the last person she wants to talk. I still can't believe where we are. I'm pregnant with Liam's baby. I mean, don't get me wrong. I already love this child but--

Ridge: Of course, you do.

Steffy: I was just positive Finn was the father.

Ridge: How is he doing with all of these?

Steffy: He's disappointed. But Finn and I will be just fine. It's Hope and Liam I'm worried about.

Thomas: Yeah, I don't wanna do two different versions of this. Uh, one with long sleeves, one without. And then, different hemlines. What do you think? Hope?

Hope: What? Oh, um, do whatever you think is best.

Thomas: Sorry, I--i shouldn't be asking you about work right now.

Hope: It's why I'm here.

Thomas: No, you got bigger things on your mind.

Liam:  I mean, Steffy was so confident the baby was Finn's. Uh, what can I say? I started to believe it myself. I started to think that Hope and I might have a way to-- to--to survive everything that's happened to us.

Wyatt: And what? Now, you don't think you can anymore?

Liam: I am the baby's father. So, there's no going back to the way things were. And this new reality we're living in, it's just--it's not what Hope signed up for.

Wyatt: Yeah, but dude. Come on. Uh, like, uh, you and Hope are going through some major complications right now but, uh, it's not, like, she's gonna bail on you.

Liam: I'm not so sure. I broke her heart, Wyatt. I broke her trust. Now, Steffy is carrying my baby.

Steffy: Liam and I couldn't have hurt Hope more if we tried. You know, the situation brings back a lot of doubt and insecurity. I mean, trust me, I know. I don't think she's gonna be able to forgive him.

Ridge: I think it's great that you're concerned about other people. What about you? You and Finn gonna be okay?

Steffy: That's what he keeps saying.

Finn: Yeah. And it's because> It's true.

Steffy: No second thoughts?

Finn: Are you kidding? I can't wait to walk into the future with you.

Wyatt: You're awfully quiet over there. Do you care to weigh in a little bit?

Flo: Uh, well, I don't-- I don't know the years of history as much as you two do. So...

Wyatt: Okay. Well, I know how much Hope and Liam love each other. And I also know that--uh, I know how extraordinarily compassionate Hope is, okay? It might take a minute but-- but she'll get over it and-- and she'll open her heart to you and--and the baby and, uh, the whole situation.

Liam: I don't know, man. Uh, I mean, everything was on track. Hope and I were crazy in love. We had our perfect little family and then--and then, I upended it all. I mean, you--you--if you think about it, I mean, how many lives are gonna be changed forever be--because of the decision that I made on this one stupid night where I thought Hope betrayed me with Thomas?

Thomas: Are you okay? I'm sorry. That is a dumb question.

Hope: [ Chuckles ] No, it's fine, really.

Thomas: Is there anything I can do?

Hope: I wish there was.

Thomas: If you need anything, I'm right here. I'm a text or a phone call away. You know, as a co-parent, coworker, friend, whatever you need.

Hope: Thank you, Thomas. I really--I appreciate that.

Finn: It's amazing to think how much this baby is growing. How are you feeling?

Steffy: Good.

Finn: Energy level?

Steffy: It's high.

Finn: You sure look beautiful.

Steffy: You see, this is why I keep him around. He's good for my ego.

Ridge: It's good for my.

Finn: Yeah, you better believe it.

Ridge: The kid's got to come first. And you don't stress about things you can't change, all right?

Finn: Yeah, your father is right. The circumstances running this pregnancy are not ideal. And Liam is the father. That's the reality. But aside from that, this baby, it's--it's a gift. And it's up to us to treat it that way. So, a fair warning, moving forward, I'm gonna be the sleep police, I'm gonna be the "are you hungry?" Police, I'm gonna be the "how are you feeling today?" Police. Ay? To make sure mom and baby are the best that they can possibly be at all times. Steffy: It means so much that you care about me and my baby.

Ridge: Hey, Finn. There's a lot of guys who would've walked away from this situation. And you're here. It takes a big man. And as Steffy's father, I thank you.

Finn: Yeah, it's an honor to be the man of Steffy's life. Your daughter is like no one else I've ever met. I love you. And I'm gonna be right by your side for whatever comes.

Liam: Hope is Hope. She's--she's absolutely faithful and true. How did I not know that? How--how was I so quick to jump to the most wrong possible conclusion? She would never betray me, let alone with Thomas. God. If I just--if I just confronted them, you know?

Flo: Liam, you got to stop beating yourself up, okay? What's done is done.

Wyatt: Yeah. Look, you made a mistake. Granted that it was a huge one but--but what are you gonna do, except salvage the rest of your life, okay? What's the plan here?

Liam: Um, whatever it takes to get right with Hope. I mean, listen, I'm gonna be there for Steffy and the baby, but you better believe I'm gonna spend the rest of my days doing anything I can to--to--to make up for the hurt I caused.

Thomas: I mean, you're navigating a lot. You know, you got the new baby on the way and all buttons being pushed. So, if you need anything.

Hope: I just--I guess, uh, I wasn't as prepared for the paternity results as I had thought. You know, I--I convinced myself that Finn was the father and Steffy was so sure.

Thomas: Vinny.

Vinny: Hey.

Thomas: Hey.

Vinny: Uh, sorry, okay,

Thomas: Vinny.

Vinny: Hey.

Thomas: Hey.

Vinny: Uh, sorry, okay, if I interrupt.

Hope: Oh, sure.

Vinny: Hope, I--I--i heard about Steffy having Liam's kid. Ouch, huh?

Hope: Yeah. Not a fun time.

Vinny: Uh, I'm so sorry you're going through all of that. You know, you don't deserve it at all, but happy you're not alone. You got the big guy here looking out for you.

Hope: Thomas has been a good friend. Uh, I'm--I'm gonna...

Thomas: Yeah, go. Uh, I'll cover here.

Hope: Okay. Thanks.

Thomas: Uh-hmm.

Vinny: Uh-huh?

Thomas: What the hell is wrong with you?

Flo: [Gasps] God, Wyatt. It's so beautiful. You shouldn't have.

Wyatt: Well, my Valentine deserves only the best. And, uh, I know, we were gonna celebrate tonight and...

Flo: Oh, I think, we still are. I have a few surprises too.

Wyatt: Huh?

Flo: Uh-hmm.

Wyatt: Okay. Uh, I mean, I was planning on giving this to you earlier and then, that Liam thing happened. And...

Flo: Yeah. Are you okay?

Wyatt: I hate seeing my brother that way, just that all strung out. I mean, he's a good guy. It's just...

Flo: I know. I know.

Wyatt: If he just gotten in the apartment. Like you said. Like, if he had just gone in there, he would've seen that Thomas wasn't actually kissing Hope but...

Flo: Or he could've gone anywhere other than Steffy's.

Wyatt: Yeah, there's that. I mean, he must have seriously thought his marriage with Hope is over. He wouldn't have slept with Steffy otherwise. I mean, yeah, that-- that relationship is complicated and it's deep and it's layered but I--I know that Liam was committed to Hope and the family.

Flo: But he did turn to Steffy right away. I mean, uh, I--I don't know. Uh, with the baby, now, I-- I think--I don't think this marriage is ever gonna be the same.

Wyatt: You don't think Hope is ever gonna be able to forgive him?

Flo: I think she'll try. But I mean, let's be honest. Her husband is having a second child with his ex.

Wyatt: Yeah.

Flo: Look, I don't--I-- I don't know but it might be hard for Hope to get past that.

Finn: Do you really need to be here?

Steffy: Where would I be?

Finn: I don't know. Head home, resting, taking a stroll on the beach.

Steffy: I love how protective you've been, Finn. But I didn't slow down when I was carrying Kelly and I'm not gonna slow down with this one.

Finn: Okay. Well, you don't seem stressed.

Steffy: No. No, I'm not.

Finn: Yeah, but I want you to promise me that you'll re-evaluate if that starts to change. I mean, I just-- I agree with ridge. Anxiety, it's... baby and mom's worst enemy.

Steffy: I absolutely promise.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: And you're so sweet. You're concerned for this child even though it's not... ugh. God, I wish this child was ours.

Thomas: No, no, no. That's not gonna work. I need that fabric in my hands by tomorrow. Tell me you can make that happen. Excellent. Thank you.

Vinny: The power of persuasion. You get it down, my man. You really do.

Thomas: Answer my question. What's wrong with you? What was all that about? With "the big guy is gonna be here for you"?

Vinny: What's wrong with that?

Thomas: Did you see how fast she got out of here? You made her uncomfortable.

Vinny: Oh, she was already uncomfortable, man. And not because of me, because Liam cheated on her, and now, he's got a kid with your sister. Dude, he blew up everyone's life because Liam couldn't keep his hands off Steffy.

Thomas: It's a little more complicated than that.

Vinny: Hope's trust took a fatal hit because Liam cheated on her. She needs you, man, more than she ever has.

Hope: Didn't know you'd be here.

[ Clears throat ] Where are the kids?

Liam: I asked donna to take them for a little bit. I just know it's a little bit harder for you when Beth and Douglas were here because you have to be strong. You can't let them know there's anything wrong. And...I know all the while, you're screaming on the inside. I--I guess, I just hoped you can tell me you haven't closed your heart to the possibility of us. I screwed up worse than it's even possible to screw up because you're--you're-- you're the one person in the world who I'm supposed be protecting from pain and instead, I...caused it. And I can see it right now. It's in your eyes, right now. I wish you could know how profoundly I regret it.

Hope: I believe that. But it doesn't make the pain go away.

Liam: And I know it's asking a lot. But I got to think... that there's a way to the other side of this if you just-- just stick with me. Please.

Finn: Hey, don't--don't be sad. I'm sure, I wish the kid was mine too. I wanted that version of us. You, me, and the baby, it's--it makes three. We can still have that. The only difference is biology. You know, I'm not the DNA match to the baby but you and I are together. And that puts me right in the middle of that baby's life. And I'll be a presence, an influence, source of love.

Steffy: What did I do to deserve you? You're so kind and caring. This child would be blessed to have you. Just like I am.

Finn: We're gonna be a family. Yeah, a little more extended than we thought but that was always gonna be an element. You know, with Liam being Kelly's dad. It's all good. And I'll take you however we become.

Steffy: You're the best thing that's happened to me in a long time, you know that? I wish I remember that. I wish I made you a priority instead of just slipping back into old patterns and habits.

Finn: Hey, what did I say about regret, right? It causes stress and stress is not good for baby. Hey, no. Look, I didn't mean-- I didn't mean to.

Steffy: No, it's not-- it's not you. I just... I--I don't understand. I don't understand how could I be so wrong?

Liam: Four words. It's all I had to say. It was just...four little words. What's going on here? And instead, I--I-- I blew it all up. Our life, our family. Everything. And you don't deserve it. You don't deserve to be going through any of this. As soon as we get over one awful betrayal, there's another hurdle to climb and, uh... you deserve better from me. Because I'm the guy, I'm the guy that's supposed to know you better than anyone. And come to think of it, I could... probably work on knowing myself a little better too. But this life, Hope, this beautiful life that we've made, I... I love it. I really love it. And... I don't know, I don't think I'm ready to give it up just yet.

Vinny: This is your chance, man. Don't let it slip by. Liam cheated on Hope. Steffy is pregnant with his child. That's a scientific fact. No questions, no doubt. The paternity test locks it in. It's Liam's kid. Now, that has to push every single button that Hope has, right?

Thomas: Why do you seem happy about this?

Vinny: I'm not happy that Hope is suffering. It's just, you can't deny paternity. Everything lines up, all the markers are there, that fetal DNA doesn't match Finn's. That makes it Liam's kid.

Thomas: What did you just say?

Vinny: What part?

Thomas: About fetal DNA.

Vinny: That it doesn't match Finn's.

Thomas: I guess I missed something. When did you become an expert on paternity tests?

Vinny: Dude, I--I told you, I've been working at the lab for a while now. Look, I-- I know you think I'm dumb but I'm not that dumb. I know how blood tests work. The whole point is it's Liam's kid which means he's gonna go running back to Steffy because that's what Liam does. And when he does, the tide turns for you. You finally have a chance with Hope. And when that day comes, you're gonna think back to this conversation and you're gonna thank me. Your friend, Vinny.

Liam: Our love... has been tested so many times. And no matter the challenge, we always overcame it. We always did. And I--I just-- I got to think that we can do it again, Hope.

Hope: I want to believe that's true. I love our life, our family, and... I love you, Liam. I have from the moment I met you. And we finally had it all. But... you made a decision that threw it all away. You broke my heart. And now, Steffy is pregnant with your child.
