Episode #8490 ~ Hope is stunned by Flo's request. Brooke seeks Liam's help in ensuring that Hope remains safe.
Provided By SuzanneThomas: Why are you saying all this?
Brooke: Somebody needs to. I mean, the way you're talking about hope, how she can rely on you.
Thomas: She can.
Brooke: Saying how much you'll always love her.
Thomas: I've explained what I meant by that.
Brooke: You've explained over and over and over again. It's like excuses trying to cover up what you really want.
Thomas: Hope's happiness. That is what I want. Okay. You don't have to be concerned.
Brooke: God, I wish I could believe you.
Thomas: You--you said you did believe me. You said that you were impressed by me. What--was that all a lie?
Brooke: No. I am impressed with some of the changes you're making. And as ridge's wife, I wish I could believe that you're being honest, but as hope's mother, I can'T. Despite everything that you are saying and doing, thomas, I believe that you're still obsessed with hope.
Ridge: I admit thomas has made some horrible mistakes. He went down a dark path and hurt a lot of people. But--but I do think you can see more than anybody else that he's turned a corner and the feelings he has for you they're--they're genuine, and he now understands right from wrong again.
Hope: I get that. I just-- why are you bringing this up now? I mean, ridge, are you trying to encourage something between me and thomas, when I'm still married to liam?
Liam: Oh, the card? Uh, yeah. Okay, let's go with, uh, thinking of you-- actually no, um, um, here--here for you, whenever you're ready. Perfect. You know what, actually, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. Just "love, liam." Love comma, liam, l I a M. That's perfect. Thank you. Okay. Bye-bye.
Wyatt: I'm guessing that wasn't the new york office.
Liam: Yeah, either that or I'm sending hope flowers.
Wyatt: I thought you already sent her flowers?
Liam: I'm sending her more. I was thinking about her. I--you know why wouldn't i let her know that?
Wyatt: Okay. I hate to tell you, but hourly bouquets are not gonna do the trick here. There's only one way that you're gonna win her over. You gotta earn hope's trust back.
Wyatt: So, how do you plan on doing that, liam? How do you plan on winning back hope's trust?
Liam: I don't know, man. I don't know. I've said all the words, made promises, gestures.
Wyatt: Okay. Well, you're gonna have to come up with something better than that and quick because there's a certain forrester dipstick out there who will do anything to take advantage of this situation. And you know, he will. You know that thomas is gonna use this separation to get closer to hope.
Hope: Is that what you're suggesting that thomas and I--
Ridge: I'm not saying that at all. You and liam are taking a break and you may find your way back to each other, if that's what you want, if that's what makes you happy, that's what I want. I want you to be happy. And that's what thomas wants. He wants you to find happiness. That's all I'm saying.
Hope: I agree. You know, he could've let us all believe that steffy was pregnant with liam's child but he didn'T.
Ridge: I then told you the truth. And I think that was the harder choice. And that needs to be acknowledged. He's trying. He had a tough time, we almost lost a kid. But he's back and he's working on it. And I think what he needs more than anything else is the faith and the support from his family.
Hope: Oh, I think we're all doing a good job of that. I mean, I know you and I are.
Ridge: Yes. We're doing that, but it'd be kinda nice if, um... if your mother could do the same thing.
Brooke: I am just looking out for my daughter. I'm protecting her.
Thomas: From me? The guy that exposed what vinny did and let everyone know. I mean, if I was still obsessed with hope, wouldn't I have held onto that information when I've used it and--and--and let everyone continue to believe the botched test results, but I didn't do that. I get that you're probably never going to forget what I did. And you may not ever forgive me either, but I am your husband's son and you have been in my life for as long as I can remember, hell you even helped raise me. Don't you see how good it would be for our family, if--if we, like, we could just get along? If you could just like, just get past the pain and move on and see that I have gotten better.
Ridge: He's right, you know. Little healing is exactly what this family needs right now. Like nothing better than the two of you to get along and then maybe trust each other. Not for me, not because of something I need, but because of you. And if you're listening to him, if you really listen to him, maybe you'd believe 'em.
Before discovering nexium 24hr
Brooke: Of course, I wanna get along with thomas. And I think for the most part, we have been. At least, we have been trying. Right, thomas?
Thomas: I thought so. I mean, I thought that we had found some common ground, especially when you invited me to recuperate in your home, but you still refuse to believe my intentions when it comes to hope. And even when my words and my actions prove that I'm working on myself.
Brooke: Okay. I will say this. I am pleased with your progress and I'm impressed to see how far you've come, the strides you've made, but still it's a long way to the finish line, thomas. And I would like to support you through that journey, but I can't just pretend that I'm okay with all of this and that I'm comfortable, especially when you talk about hope, because I'm not. And you shouldn't be either. I mean, his attraction towards hope they caused a lot of problems through the years. I just think the best thing right now is for thomas to keep his distance.
Thomas: Wait, keep my distance from hope?
Brooke: Okay. I know that you work together and I know that you're raising douglas together, but still hope and liam are married. Even though they're separated, but they are going to reunite.
Ridge: Why you--you-- you're not listening to me. He said, he's gonna support hope's decision and this is what she wants.
Ridge: Why is it so hard?
Brooke: Okay. I just wanna make sure we're all on the same page. Look, I'm gonna leave you two to talk. I've got to see somebody.
Ridge: Brooke, don't do that I...
[ Sighs ] Great.
Thomas: You know, um... brooke is never gonna trust me. Not around hope.
Donna: Oh. Hi.
Donna: Uh, look, I know it's, um, probably a little jarring to have to see me here.
Hope: I'd say that's accurate. It's just, um, a lot to process knowing that my mom and my aunts are so willing to accept the woman who...
Donna: I--I--I get it. And I--I want--I wanna make sure that you're comfortable and that, uh, you feel okay here. So if that means that while I'm here, I avoid you or I don't know, um--
Hope: Give up your job? I mean, I wouldn't ask you to do that. You are a family after all. Logan.
Donna: On a scale of one to ten, how much does that bother you?
Hope: It's just a lot to process.
Donna: Well, I understand. And I hope, you know, that being a part of my father's family, and being able to call myself a logan, it means everything to me. But it would mean even more, if somehow, some way you could find a way to forgive me too.
Liam: Listen. If I know thomas then I know hope even better, and I know what she needs from me. And if there is any chance, any chance at all of us getting back together, I cannot be constantly coming at her with all my theories about how thomas is unhinged. She knows how I feel about that. If thomas is my focal point, I lose, game over, that's it. This has to be about hope. I have to prove to her that we can still have the life and future that we want.
Brooke: Hear, hear.
Wyatt: Brooke, hi.
Brooke: Hi, wyatt. Congratulations on your engagement.
Wyatt: Thank you. Um, and thank you again for, you know, giving flo another shot at forrester and for welcoming her into your family. Hmm, um, speaking of family, you probably are here to talk to liam alone. So I'm gonna make myself scarce. Uh... just think about what I said. Do not let your guard down.
Brooke: Your guard?
Liam: Uh... when it comes to thomas.
Brooke: Liam, that's exactly why I'm here. I'm worried.
Liam: About thomas?
Brooke: Yes. I'm very worried. And you should be too. Cell phone repair.
Hope: Forgive you?
Donna: I'm sorry. I know it's probably too much to even ask.
Hope: But you'll ask it anyway?
Donna: Look, you know how they say, um, that time heals all wounds. I'm not really even sure I believe in any of that, but I was hoping that maybe-- look, obviously, I'm never going to be able to make up for what I did. I'm never gonna be able to take away the pain I caused you and I will never forgive myself. Just know how deeply, deeply, sorry I am for all of it. I hate thinking that I'm gonna forever be this awful person to you. I want you to know the real me. I want--I want--you know what? You're a part of my life. Especially now, I'm--I'm engaged to wyatt, I'm--I'm working here, I'm getting to know my aunts a lot better. I would really, really love to get to know my cousin too. Maybe you're not ready. And I--and I--and I completely understand that, but I--I will remain hopeful, that someday you'll be able to find a way to forgive me and accept me back into your life, the same way that you... accepted zoe. The same way you've accepted thomas.
Thomas: I've worked so hard and I've tried to prove that I'm not the guy I was. I am not a threat or a danger to hope but... brooke still doesn't trust me.
Ridge: Try to see it from her point of view. She's a parent, she's trying to protect her kid, you do the same thing. It's just--even though she doesn't need to, if she just opened her eyes and saw you and listen to you,
Thomas: I--I understand where brooke's coming from and why she doesn't trust me. Just because brooke can't be reasonable about this doesn't mean I can't be reasonable and I'm not going to allow her to drive a wedge between us.
Ridge: She's not doing that. I--I don't think that's her intention at all.
Thomas: I don't think you understand that it is whether it's subconsciously or not. It's what she's always wanted. This goes back to all the way when we were kids, I mean, she would always come around and she would circle back to you and wedge herself between you and your own family. And she tried to make you choose between her and us. Nothing's changed, dad. I mean, not one thing.
Liam: Brooke, what's going on? Did something happen?
Brooke: It will if you don't stop him. What was wyatt saying? Warning you about thomas.
Liam: He's just concerned that thomas might, you know, try something.
Brooke: Well, listen to your brother. I really hate saying this because thomas is ridge's son, but I don't trust him, liam. Not at all.
Liam: Listen, I don't trust him either. But what is there to say if he's not actually doing anything, right now?
Brooke: But they're always in close proximity. I mean, they work together at forrester. They're co-parenting douglas together. So between home life and work life, I mean, he's always around hope.
Liam: Yeah, I know. And the rest of us have to pretend like he's not still obsessed.
Brooke: Yeah, but he is. I see it in his eyes and I hear it in his voice. He is completely obsessed. And now that you're separated from hope, he sees that there's some kind of opportunity. I mean, it gives him some kind of sixth sense of confidence. You got to do something to fix your marriage. Otherwise he's gonna make sure you and hope never get back together. I guarantee it. Feeling stressed in your skin?
Liam: I understand why you're concerned, I'm concerned too. I think a lot about, you know, if and how thomas might try to use this situation to his advantage. But I just--I-- I can't be worrying about that right now.
Brooke: You have to.
Liam: What am I supposed to do? Run up to hope and start giving her orders, like demand that she'd stay away from him? Tell her how to do her job and how to parent, but she doesn't need that from me. What she needs is my support. She needs to know that if she asks me for space, I'm gonna give her space. I mean, I owe her that much after what I've done.
Brooke: You can't give up. You can't give him the advantage.
Liam: I'm not giving up, okay? I'm never giving up, but I do need to prove to hope that I can give her what she needs from me. I'm just trying to do right by her, brooke.
Brooke: Do right by her? What do you mean? You're gonna open the door and let thomas in, let him get his grubby hands all over her?
Liam: Hope is not gonna let that happen.
Brooke: No. I'm not gonna let that happen. I told him he will never be with hope, ever. Please, liam. I need your help. I'm afraid my words aren't gonna be enough. I need you to do something. You need to get hope back as soon as possible. Take action now.
Thomas: So depending on when the movie ends, I might take douglas out for ice cream after. Um, but, uh, I promise I will have him back by bedtime.
Hope: That sounds good. Douglas has really been looking forward to it.
Thomas: Well, so have I. It's a big deal for me and I promise one big, amazing lively night out with douglas will not affect my work. I will have new designs on your desk in the morning.
Hope: [ Laughs ] I would be surprised if there weren'T. Thomas, I really appreciate the commitment you've made to my line and I have been so impressed with the work that you've been doing.
Thomas: Oh, thank you. That means a lot. I wish brooke, kind of, felt that way. Um, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that. I don't--I don't wanna talk bad about her.
Hope: Well, is something going on?
Thomas: [ Chuckles ] Uh, brooke has opinions about me when it comes to you.
Hope: Yeah, I know she can be a bit protective.
Thomas: That's one way to put it.
Hope: [ Laughs ] Okay. What has she been saying?
Thomas: Nothing. It's fine.
Hope: Are you sure?
Thomas: Yeah. I mean, I--I can't change how she feels about me. So... she still thinks that I have ulterior motive when it comes to you. Uh, she--she can't accept that I've changed. She even said that I--
Hope: Thomas, what?
Thomas: She said that I'll never have you and that liam's the only one for you and that I'm still obsessed with you.
Hope: [ Sighs ] Oh, no. I'm--I'm sorry.
Thomas: I'm sorry too. I mean, but I don't understand how she can think that after everything that I've done and everything that I've said. I--what does she not want from me? I mean, everything that I've been doing is for you. Like, I want what's best for you. I want that dark cloud that's over your head to be lifted. I want the smile, that beautiful smile to come back on your face. Why is that wrong? Like, I want-- it doesn't matter if you decide to go off with liam and be with him again, right? Or--or if you-- if you move away from him either way, I respect what you want. I will always be here for you as a designer, as your friend, as a father to our child, whatever you need. My commitment to you and, yes, my love for you will never waver.
