Episode #8480 ~ Steffy is swept up in how her life instantly changed for the better. Hope shares life-changing news with Liam.

Provided By Suzanne

Steffy: I can't believe it. We're getting married.

Finn: And we're having a baby. Our baby.

Steffy: Our baby.

Man: Every moment with you's a revelry

Liam: What are you talking about?

Hope: Thomas has something important to share.

Liam: Okay, what? He's a changed man again?

Hope: Okay, liam, it's not exactly about him. It affects you more than anyone.

Liam: Why? Are the kids okay?

Hope: Yes. The kids are fine. What's going on? Why are you standing in my living room? And why do you both have this weird look on your face?

Hope: We're just not sure how you're going to react once you hear what thomas has to say.

Thomas: Liam, it's something that's gonna change your life forever.

Brooke: You still haven't heard from finn?

Ridge: No. Not since he ran out of here looking for steffy.

Brooke: If finn thinks he's gonna be able to stop her from going to paris...

Ridge: Can't blame the guy for trying. Steffy's convinced she's leaving here because it's what's best for him.

Brooke: Because she's carrying another man's child. So obviously she knows it's gonna be harder on finn than he even realizes.

Ridge: Well, I hope he catches up with her and explains his side of the story.

Liam: Okay, somebody's gotta tell me what this is about because you and I do not have the best track record, and right now my mind is racing.

Hope: Thomas hasn't done anything wrong.

Liam: Well, that would be nice.

Thomas: Look, I get it. You still don't trust me. Makes sense. Why don't-- why don't you tell him. I'll leave you guys alone.

Liam: Yeah, that's a good-- good plan.

Hope: Thank you, thomas... for everything.

Liam: What is going on right now?

Hope: I--I don't-- I'm just trying to figure out how to wade into all of this.

Liam: Wade away. Or you can just tell me.

Hope: Okay, well, I just found out the most incredible news, and I hope you feel the same way, too.

Steffy: [ Laughs ] I was so caught up. I mean, I'm glad that you reminded me that kelly and amelia were heading to the airport. I mean, I don't even know what to say right now.

Finn: And kelly would have wondered why her mom wasn't on the plane.

Steffy: I'm so happy you found me.

Finn: I couldn't let you slip away. I mean, especially not after finding out that you're carrying our child.

Steffy: It's really ours?

Finn: It's yours and mine and no one else's, steffy. We created this child together.

Steffy: You're gonna be a father.

Finn: And you're gonna be my wife.

Steffy: How is this even happening? How is this my life? I wanna know every detail. After forty, we need anti-aging care that works.

Brooke: This isn't just difficult for finn. It's difficult for you, too. Your daughter's moving to paris and taking your granddaughter.

Ridge: [ Sighs ] I couldn't talk her out of it. I should've tried harder, you know.

Brooke: Ridge, what more could you have done? I understand that you're upset that she's leaving, but she feels that's it's necessary because she's pregnant with liam's child.

Ridge: But if it had been finn's baby, she'd be here with us. She'd be right here.

Brooke: Oh. That reality has complicated so many lives, especially my daughter'S.

Ridge: I just wish there would've been a better way to handle this. You know, a different outcome.

Brooke: Yeah. We all wish things had turned out differently.

Ridge: Who knows, you know. Maybe--maybe finn can figure this out. This is the old romantic in me. I can see him jumping on a horse and... riding down to the beach in santa monica and venice and jumping the fence, going to the airport.

Brooke: Yeah?

Ridge: Police is chasing him, security, and he gets to the plane, and he just talks to her and says, "this is what I want. This is what my life to be."

Brooke: [ Laughs ] Ridge, then what? I mean, steffy feels that this is her only option. What can he possibly say to get her to change her mind?

Ridge: I don't know.

[ Door opens ]

Thomas: Hey.

Ridge: Hey. What happened to your face?

Thomas: A vine. I'll explain later. I need to talk to you.

Ridge: Well, I was gonna actually text you and tell you that your sister is leaving for paris.

Thomas: Paris? When?

Ridge: Today. Sometime today.

Thomas: Does finn know about this?

Steffy: How do you know?

Finn: Trust me. There is zero doubt that I'm the father.

Steffy: Well, you said vinny had something to do with it?

Finn: Yeah. Apparently yes.

Steffy: Why would he care about messing with the paternity results?

Finn: For your brother.

Steffy: For thomas?

Finn: Apparently, vinny has always hated liam because thomas hates liam.

Steffy: But what does that have to do with us?

Finn: I wish that there was a simple answer to that.

Steffy: But I've known vinny most of my life. If he hates liam, why wouldn't he want you to be the father? It doesn't make any sense.

Finn: Because if liam was the father, it would cause a rift in liam's marriage.

Steffy: It already caused a problem in their marriage. Hope was devastated thinking that liam was the father.

Finn: Precisely the point.

Steffy: Okay, this is so crazy. I don't understand.

Finn: Yeah. And you don't even know half the story.

Steffy: Okay, this is a big-- big shot, but right now I'm-- I just wanna be with you. I wanna celebrate with you because we're having a child together. [ Laughs ]

Finn: We have our whole lives to celebrate, steffy, but you need an explanation, and I'm not even gonna pretend like I understand any of this. But vinny thought he was doing thomas a favor. He thought by making liam the father, he was paving a way for hope and thomas to be together.

Hope: This is unbelievable news.

Liam: Like, unbelievable. Like, how? Like in a good way. Because you seem happy. I just don't know how to interpret that.

Hope: It's something we all wanted.

Liam: Okay, then why are you so hesitant to tell me?

Hope: Because it doesn't fix everything. I'm just-- I'm trying to be respectful of your feelings because it may not be easy for you to hear.

Liam: Whoa. Well, now I'm starting to get concerned. What is it?

Hope: I'm just-- I just wanna prepare you because I know it will be a shock.

Liam: Hope, listen. Given all the twists and turns we've been through, I'm pretty sure I can handle just about anything, so...

Hope: You can. I know how strong you are. And I also know you have a big heart, and so I'm trying to be sensitive because it's a little more complicated for you than it is for the rest of us.

Liam: In what way? Hope, just tell me.

Hope: It's about steffy. About her pregnancy.

Expertly tailored eye care.

Steffy: Vinny faked the test results so thomas could have a chance with hope?

Finn: That was his twisted reasoning. And it's like he was giving a gift to his old pal.

Steffy: My jaw is literally on the floor.

Finn: I can see that. You need help picking it up.

Steffy: What, is that a pregnancy joke now?

Finn: What? No. No. Not at all. I swear.

Steffy: [ Laughs ] Because this little bump right here, this is half yours, dr. Finnegan.

Finn: [ Laughs ]

Steffy: Are you prepared to wait on me hand and foot?

Finn: Mm. Well, I can't wait for you to order me around. I was born for this. I've been waiting for this my whole life.

Steffy: You're gonna be the greatest father. I am so lucky that this baby is yours. You have no idea how happy I am.

Finn: Well, it's been a wild ride to get here, but we're a little family now.

Steffy: Hey, I wanna ask you something, and I want you to be completely honest with me. It's about thomas.

Finn: He wasn't aware what vinny was up to.

Steffy: Not at all?

Finn: No. In fact, we have thomas to thank. I mean, he was the one who exposed vinny. Thomas is our hero.

Thomas: So steffy's on her way to paris?

Ridge: It was very sudden.

Thomas: I didn't know if any meetings in--

Ridge: It's not a meeting. She's trying to let finn off the hook.

Thomas: Off the hook for what?

Ridge: For being a baby daddy to a kid that's not his, and she thinks in the end, he's gonna regret it.

Thomas: But he's not gonna regret it.

Brooke: The situation's very complicated. Finn is in a challenging position.

Thomas: Okay, it's not what everyone thinks.

Ridge: But it's what she thinks, and there's no way to change her mind.

Thomas: Oh, I think there's a way.

Brooke: We have to trust that steffy knows what's right for her.

Thomas: No. Dad, listen to me. We can't let her go.

Ridge: What do you want me to do? Go to the airport and stop her from getting on a plane? She's a grown woman.

Brooke: And you know how it is when steffy sets her mind to something.

Thomas: She doesn't know the truth.

Ridge: She doesn't know the truth about what?

Thomas: About the baby.

Brooke: What about the baby?

Thomas: It's not liam'S.

Ridge: But it is liam'S.

Thomas: No. The paternity test was wrong. The baby's father is finn. You have to believe me, okay? It's not liam. It's finn.

Liam: What about steffy's pregnancy? Okay, hope, obviously, something big is going on, so you may as well just tell me.

Hope: Steffy is fine. The baby is fine. I'm sorry. I just-- I don't mean to drag this out. I just don'T... know how to say this.

Liam: But everyone's okay.

Hope: Yes. Yes.

Liam: So then why-- why would it be a problem?

Hope: Well, it's not that there's a problem per se. It's just that it's not going to be a solution to all of our problems. It's just-- look, liam, your life is about to change. What we thought was the truth, we were lied to, and I know some people are probably thrilled about this, and I--I don't know. Maybe you will be, too, but you also might feel a sense of loss as well, and I understand if that'S...

Liam: Hope, what--

Hope: Steffy's baby. You aren't the father. If you have obstructive sleep apnea and you're often tired during the day, you could be missing out on amazing things.

Hope: I knew this would be a shock. That's why I tried to break it to you gently.

Liam: No, it's just--wait. Let me see if I understand. You're saying I'm not the father of, like, this baby that steffy is currently pregnant with?

Hope: Yes. It's not yours.

Liam: Oh, hope. I mean, I get it, but we did a paternity test.

Hope: I know that, but we didn't get the correct results.

Liam: Okay. But the lab report stated unequivocally-- it's, like, statistically impossible for it to have been wrong.

Hope: You aren't getting the full picture here.

Hope: Look, I know it's hard to believe.

Liam: No. It's not--it's not that I don't believe you. Trust me, hope. I will never not believe you again. It's just I-I-I don't know where this is coming from.

Hope: From thomas. I mean, he was just here explaining it all before you got here.

Liam: Well, there you go. It's from thomas? Now, think about this. Why would thomas know that?

Hope: Because he discovered the truth.

Liam: You just, like, believe him? You just went ahead and believed him?

Hope: Do you remember his friend vinny?

Liam: Yeah. Why?

Hope: Well, vinny started working at a hospital lab-- the same lab that processed steffy's test, and he altered the results.

Liam: No.

Hope: Yes.

Liam: No. Come on.

Hope: Yes. Liam, he made it so that you are the father.

Liam: Why--why would he do-- what possible incentive would he have for doing that?

Hope: He thought if he did it that thomas and I would...

Liam: Oh, my god. I'm sorry. What?

Hope: I'm sorry, liam.

Liam: Hope, if thomas is involved in this in any way, I'm gonna freak out.

Hope: No. He had nothing to do with this, liam. I can assure you of that, all right? This is all vinny's doing. It was his idea. He thought he was just being a good friend to thomas. But thomas had nothing to do with this at all. And when he found out the truth, the first thing he did was come here to tell me. Okay, this is real, liam.

Liam: So you're saying that finn is the father?

Hope: Yes.

Liam: And you know this absolutely without a doubt?

Hope: Vinny admitted everything.

Liam: So steffy's not carrying my child?

Hope: No. The baby isn't yours.

Steffy: I need to know 100% that thomas had nothing to do with this.

Finn: I promise you, he did not.

Steffy: You're not just saying that to protect me? Thomas had no hand in this. It was all vinny.

Finn: Look, I'm aware of what thomas has done in the past, and none of that can be excused. But in this particular instance, not only is he innocent and not only did he do nothing wrong, but we owe him a huge debt of gratitude for this unexpected miracle.

Steffy: This is so overwhelming.

Finn: We are beyond blessed.

Steffy: Yeah, we are. I thought this day was gonna be me in tears, but now I-- I can't stop smiling.

Finn: No, you have always been so beautiful to me. But now looking at you, knowing that you're caring my child...

Steffy: Every instinct in my body told me it was yours. I was certain.

Finn: Well, look at that. You were right all along.

Steffy: [ Laughs ] Well, now we can finally be together, share a life together. Our baby. It's a life that we always wanted.

Finn: I mean, I feel like I won the lottery here.

Steffy: Yeah, you did.

Finn: Are you sure you wanna sign up for all this?

Steffy: Absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt.

Finn: Okay, 'cause you know what you're getting yourself into. There's gonna be a lot of me in a lot of dingy gray scrubs.

Steffy: What? You know I'm obsessed with those scrubs.

Finn: They kind of have become your favorite pajamas, huh?

Steffy: Yeah, because they, like, fit me. It's like a little string around my belly. I love them. They have a special place in my heart. I mean, you were wearing them when I first met you. And you saved my life. You were there for me, and you've always been there for me. To think that I almost got on a plane and turned my back on you. I want you to know it was really killing me to do that.

Finn: None of that matters. We're engaged. [ Laughs ] We're about to be parents.

Steffy: [ Laughs ] I am so lucky to have you.

Finn: I mean, this is beyond my wildest hopes and expectations. I mean, to have created a son or daughter with... the most remarkable woman I've ever met. And to be her future husband...

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Finn: I love you so much, steffy, and I love that little baby. I can't wait for the three of us to begin our life together.
