Finn: Say yes.

Steffy: You don't know what you're asking.

Finn: Steffy, I'm down on one knee, ring in hand. I think I know what I'm asking. I wanna spend the rest of my life with you. Tell me you want that, too. Tell me that you wanna be my wife. Steffy forrester, will you marry me?

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Hope: I can't-- I can't believe this.

Thomas: I know. I couldn't believe it either that vinny would do something like that--changing the test results.

Hope: So you're telling me that steffy's baby is finn's?

Thomas: That's right. It's finn's, not liam'S.

[ Liquid pouring ]

Wyatt: Look, uh, don't take this the wrong way, but do you need a break?

Liam: What? No. I don't think so. Why?

Wyatt: Because either you're a really slow reader, or you've been on that same page for about 20 minutes now.

Liam: Oh. Yes. I-- I suppose I have. I'm a little, um-- just a little distracted.

Wyatt: Distracted? A little distracted? You're deeply distracted. What?

Liam: I'm thinking about hope and... all the pain I've caused her.

Wyatt: [ Sighs ] How are things going with hope? Any progress?

Liam: Uh, you know, I'm not sure. Well, she hasn't outright left me, so that's a plus.

Wyatt: That's a huge plus. That's good for you.

Liam: Yeah. And we're still functioning as--as... husband and wife, as parents, you know, and that's sort of-- that's sort of, like, getting us through at the moment, but... I don't know. I don't even know if hope would still be with me if it weren't for beth and douglas. She's really struggling right now, and... how can I blame her? I'm having another-- another child with steffy. You know, it's actually-- it's actually hard to imagine screwing things up this bad. Right? I mean, I had the most amazing family. I had this beautiful, supportive, perfect wife, and now... I don't know what I'm gonna do if hope can't get past this.

Hope: I swear, if you are messing with me--

Thomas: I'm not. I'm not. Vinny confessed it. It's true. And not just to me, but finn was there, too. Steffy's not having another child with liam. She's having a child with finn.

Hope: Oh, my god.

[ Laughs ] I don't know if I wanna laugh or cry. I mean, this changes everything. Wait. Steffy--does she know? She needs to be told.

Thomas: Yeah. Finn went to give her the news. I'm--I'm so happy for her and for all of you.

Steffy: You have no idea how much I wanna say yes, but...

Finn: Steffy.

Steffy: How do I accept that ring, finn? How do I marry you when I am pregnant with liam's child?

Finn: What if I told you-- I found out something today, something... that you need to know.

Steffy: Whatever it is is not gonna make a difference. We have to face reality.

Finn: Trust me. When I tell you, our reality never looked so good.

Steffy: [ Sighs ]

Expertly tailored eye care.

Wyatt: Look, I--I would be happy to talk to hope if you think that it would help. Okay?

Liam: Huh. Thank you. Actually, I might even take you up on that, but for now I think what I have to do is give her space. Like, just--like, just time to figure out how she fits in this new dynamic.

Wyatt: Okay. I'll tell you how she fits. Hope is your wife. All right? She can be a stepmother to kelly and this new child as well. That's it.

Liam: I did tell her what a wonderful stepmother she's been.

Wyatt: There you go.

Liam: But that's-- see, that's--that's the thing. Like, stepmother? Stepmother? Really? I mean, that is not a role that hope ever expected she would have to play, let alone twice. Twice. Two different times I've gotten steffy pregnant with my child. What is wrong with me?

Wyatt: Liam, stop. Okay? I know how badly you feel about this whole thing, and you can't just beat yourself up. It's not gonna help you move forward, and that's what you and hope need to do right now--is move forward.

Liam: Unless we don'T.

Wyatt: What? No. Don't--don't even go there.

Liam: Well, shouldn't I? I mean, at some point, wyatt, don't I have to consider that... maybe I'm expecting too much of hope. Maybe I--maybe I don't have the right to ask her to stand by me this time.

Wyatt: So-- so what are you saying?

Liam: [ Sighs ]

Hope: I still can't believe it. Thomas, thank you. Thank you for telling me.

Thomas: You don't have to thank me. I'm just the messenger.

Hope: Well, that's exactly why I'm thanking you. I mean, you didn't even think twice. You just rushed right over here to tell me.

Thomas: Well, I figure you'd wanna hear it as soon as possible.

Hope: Exactly. And that is something that I'm not so sure you would have done in the past.

Thomas: You are probably right. And all I needed was to see that big, beautiful smile on your face.

[ Sighs ]

Hope: So, did vinny say why he did it, why he would change the results?

Thomas: Uh... yeah. Well, he did it 'cause he thought he was being a good friend.

Hope: A good friend.

Thomas: Yeah, he did it for me so that I could be with you.

Steffy: I appreciate what you're trying to do. You want a life with meteevything I put you through. Finn, I wish I could accept. I wish I could put that ring on and throw my arms around you, but I can'T. I'm pregnant with another man's child. You deserve better. That's our one and only reality.

Finn: But what if that child were mine?

Steffy: I'd accept in a heartbeat. You know that. You know how much I want a life with you, how much I wanna marry you. And I love you so much for wanting to stand by me and this child, but... I can't tie you down like this to a life that you'll someday regret. Please never forget how much I love you.

Finn: Steffy. Steffy, wait! It's ours! The child is ours. You're carrying our baby. My heart failure diagnosis changed my priorities.

Wyatt: Liam, tell me you aren't giving up. That isn't what you're saying, is it? That you don't deserve hope anymore?

Liam: Well, in-- in what world, do I deserve hope after what I've done? I mean, you have made this exact point. What does--what does someone like hope deserve? Not a guy who's gonna go running to his ex the minute something goes wrong.

Wyatt: Oh, come on, that was back in the day.

Liam: I know, but you were right. You were absolutely right. And I'm not--listen. I'm not saying that I'm giving up, and I'm not saying that I think there's some guy out there who's better for her than me. Because I don'T. But she deserves...

Wyatt: Okay.

Liam: ...Better from me. She deserves better than how I've treated her. And I--I just--I have to work day and night to prove to her that I can be that guy, that I can be the guy who keeps his vows, who makes good on his promises. And, eventually-- eventually, hopefully earn her forgiveness.

Wyatt: Well, I believe you will.

Liam: Thanks, man. It's not gonna be easy. I mean, no matter what I say or do, there's still a possibility she's just not gonna be convinced, and I-I-I-I-- I have to be prepared for the fact that even if hope wants a life with me, she may not be able to get past the fact that I'm having another child with steffy.

Hope: So vinny altered the results for you.

Thomas: Yes, but please understand I had nothing to do with this. Vinny did this all on his own.

Hope: Ell, then how did all of this come about? Was he bragging about it to you, thinking you'd be excited about it or something?

Thomas: Actually, he kept lying about it, but I kept questioning him.

Hope: So you suspected it.

Thomas: Yeah. He kept dropping some not-so-subtle hints, saying that I deserved to be with you and that, uh, one day I'll be thanking my good pal vinny. And once I found out he was working at the lab, I put two and two together, and I had to know the truth. But-- look, I know that vinny's not the most scrupulous guy in the world, but I didn't wanna believe that he could do something so horrible, so I--I chose to-- I chose to believe what he said. But it kept gnawing at me. So today, I went to the lab and confronted him again, and finn overheard us, and between the two of us, we got the truth out.

Hope: So vinny admitted it, that he falsified the paternity test?

Thomas: All because of some stupid, misguided plan to help out his buddy so the two of us could be together.

Steffy: What did you say?

Finn: You're not carrying liam's child. Steffy, it's true. The baby's ours.

Steffy: I don't understand.

Finn: You know vinny, right? Thomas's friend?

Steffy: Yeah. So?

Finn: You know where he works? He works at university hospital in the lab.

Steffy: I'm not following.

Finn: It's where I work. It's where dr. Campbell works. It's where we took the paternity test. Vinny messed with the results.

Steffy: [ Sighs ] What?

Finn: He made it look like I wasn't a match, but I am. I'm the father, steffy. The child is ours.

Steffy: [ Sighs ] Is this true? This child is yours?

Finn: Yeah. Yes.

Steffy: Oh, my god. We're having a baby?

Finn: Yes.

Steffy: This baby's yours? We're having a baby? Oh, my god. We're having a baby. Oh, my--[ Laughs ] Oh, I love you. To be a thriver

Thomas: I feel terrible. Vinny thinking he was doing me a favor.

Hope: So, what, he thought that liam and steffy would get back together?

Thomas: Maybe. I don't know. I think he just thought it would be too much for you to handle, and your marriage wouldn't last.

Hope: And then that would give you an opportunity to swoop in?

Thomas: Hope, I promise I would never--

Hope: I know. I know, thomas. Look, I'm not angry at you. I believe you. It's just--

[ Sighs ] It's a lot to process.

Thomas: Yeah. I told vinny he was in the wrong and that doing that wasn't something that a friend would do. You know, it was terrible, and I hate that his deceit caused you to be in more pain. That's the last thing I would ever want. But I'm glad it's out. You know, the truth is finally out, especially before the child is born.

Hope: Thank goodness you trusted your instincts and confronted him. Thomas, I'm-- I'm really grateful. Thank you. Thank you for pursuing it, for finding out and coming here first thing and telling me. It-- it changes a lot.

Liam: What's going on?

Thomas: Um, a lot actually. Do--do you wanna tell him?

Liam: Tell me what, guys?

Thomas: Something that's gonna change your life forever.

Steffy: How is this happening?

Finn: It all goes back to vinny changing the results. But all that matters is that we know the truth. We're having a baby.

Steffy: When dr. Campbell told us the results, I knew it felt wrong. I knew you were the father, not liam, and I was right. I was right. Our prayers have been answered.

Finn: Should we try this again?

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Finn: Steffy. I'm so thankful for you. When you came into my life, you taught me that there is more to life than work. You've shown me joy and laughter and that I'm capable of falling in love. I'm even capable of expressing it. And look at me. I'm down on one knee, and I am just gazing up... at the most beautiful woman I have ever known. The woman who is gonna give me an incredible gift-- a child, a little one growing inside you that...is gonna call me dad. And maybe that ought to be enough. Maybe I shouldn't ask for any more, but...

[ Sighs ] Here I am. I'm asking you for one more beautiful gift. To change both our lives forever and to make me happier than I've ever been. Steffy forrester, will you marry me? Will you be my wife?

Steffy: Yes. Yes, I'll be your wife. Yes.

Man: Almost too good to be real 'cause this is how love used to feel and I think most every moment with you is a revelry every moment with you's a revelry every moment with you's a revelry
