Episode #8512 ~ Liam attempts to hide his torment over Vinny's death from Hope. Ridge goes on the defense when Baker grills Thomas about Vinny.
Provided By SuzanneVinny: You're not getting
away with this.
They'll find you, liam.
What you've done.
Hope: How is this-- are you okay? Liam? What is it? What's going on? Liam? Liam?
Ridge: Really is a moving tribute. You're a good friend to vinny.
Thomas: Well, vinny was a good friend to me. I can't stop thinking about what vinny's last moments were like. I know that he-- he made a mistakes there at the end but... everyone makes mistakes. I mean, I made mistakes. But I grew and I changed and I'm--I became better. But I had a chance to do that. Vinny didn't even get that chance. Someone took that chance away from him. Some nameless, faceless bastard deserves to rot in hell.
Zoe: Oh. Any luck?
Paris: Well, I checked with donna. She hasn't heard anything from quinn so far today. I ran into charlie. I asked him, he said her car wasn't in her spot, so he just assumed she was coming in late.
Zoe: Yeah. But that's still doesn't answer the question, where quinn is right now? Seriously, what could be keeping her so busy that she can't even call?
Quinn: We need to stop doing this. We--we needed to, um...
Carter: Resist temptation, as hard as that might be.
Quinn: Is that what I am to you? A "temptation?"
Carter: There are so many ways I could respond to that.
Quinn: Oh, I think you should just answer the question, counselor.
Carter: Or what? What are you gonna do to me if I don't?
Quinn: Maybe I'll tell you or... I would show you. But I'M... exercising restraint.
Carter: Oh. Something tells me you've never really been good at that.
Quinn: No. Not been good at that. Oh. That has cost me a lot over the years. This could've cost us a lot too if we don't stop.
Carter: Ugh, I know. I know. I know. We can't-- we can't do this again. You're right. You belong with eric.
Quinn: And you belong with zoe.
Carter: Well, the jury's still out on that one. But you and eric belong together.
Quinn: Oh. I always used to believe that. But then my husband stopped holding me... and touching me... being the man that I needed him to be. The man that you've been for me.
[ Sighs ] But as amazing as last night and... today was, and as much as I needed this...
Carter: We both needed it. And it can never... happen again.
Quinn: Never... ever.
Ridge: I hate it too. Vinny being robbed of so many years of his life.
Thomas: You know what I keep thinking about? I'm thinking about how vinny-- he could have served his time. And then once he got out, he could--he could turn his life around, you know? I mean, uh, he--he--he could've gotten a really good job, and he could've moved on with his life, and he could've gotten married to a nice girl like he always wanted to and had some kids. I mean, he would've been a great dad. But he's not gonna have that chance anymore because someone mowed him down. And I'm just wondering if we're ever gonna find out who's behind the wheel that night.
Baker: I might be able to answer that. Sometimes investigations seem to drag on longer than we'd like. But that doesn't mean anyone is giving up. That's why I'm back. I got a few questions I wanna ask you about your good friend vinny, thomas, questions that might be uncomfortable, but questions that need answer.
Liam: No, I'm fine. Of course, I'm fine. I mean, how could--how can I not be, being back here with you and the kids?
Hope: Liam, there is something going on with you. And I think I know what. Welcome!
Thomas: Okay, chief, fire away. I wanna help in any way I can.
Baker: So you've said.
Ridge: Oh, you don't believe him?
Baker: Oh, at this stage in the investigation, it's hard to know what to believe.
Thomas: Meaning you don't have any definite leads?
Baker: Meaning I'm aware that vincent's actions with the paternity test result inflamed a lot of people. Specifically your sister and her fiancÚ, liam and hope spencer, and you, thomas. By your own admission, your oldest and dearest friend betrayed your friendship--
Ridge: I'm so sorry for interrupting you. I'm sorry. What are you implying, that thomas had something to do with this? You're wasting your time. Maybe you should focus and find vinny's killer.
Hope: Hey, obviously, the video touched a nerve. I can see it plain as day. Um, I know vinny's death has been a difficult subject for you. Liam, you're a good person. And you don't wanna see harm come to anyone, especially the way it happened with vinny. But still, it's hard to accept what he did. Vinny lied, he falsified paternity test results and all of our lives were affected because of it. And so it's understandable if a part of you can't just forgive and forget.
Liam: You're right. I can't forgive and forget. I wish I--I could. I wish I could just... put it out of my mind and never think about it again but hope... the person I can't forgive is myself.
Zoe: Now that has to be it. That's why I haven't heard from quinn all day because she doesn't wanna give me the bad news about carter.
Zoe: No. Carter's involved with someone else. And she doesn't wanna have to be the one to tell me because she knows it's gonna break my heart.
Paris: Okay. Sis, please. You will hear from quinn soon enough. And there's no reason to believe that carter is seeing another woman. Like he's not the type of guy that jump in bed with different women.
Quinn: I felt so lonely and rejected. I know eric didn't wanna make me feel that way. But more and more, I just-- I felt invisible. I mean, my husband no longer... would see me or hear me or need me. Especially in bed. I mean, who knows? Maybe his family finally got to him. They never, ever accepted me. Maybe brooke's negativity finally--finally took hold. He took her side over mine and it hurts so, so much. But none of that justifies what we did.
Carter: I know. And I get why you feel guilty. I feel guilty too. I respect eric, ridge is my friend but we all need connection.
Carter: Intimacy. We haven't had that in a while. Should we have fought harder? Yes, I think that's obvious. But this closeness, the emotional, physical satisfaction, quinn, it didn't feel wrong. It doesn't feel wrong.
Quinn: No. It was beautiful and it was incredible. And you... are incredible. And I understand why zoe misses you so much. But... what would be wrong? Is if we continue doing this knowing how much we're gonna hurt the people we love. So... that was an amazing time but it's over. No one can know. We can't tell anyone. It has to be our secret. What if younger looking skin could start at midnight?
Baker: Another father defending his son.
Ridge: My son doesn't need defending. He had nothing to do with what happened to vinny.
Baker: Maybe. Although I am aware of an altercation that took place between thomas, dr. Finnegan, and vincent walker at the hospital lab where vincent worked. You're not denying that altercation, are you?
Thomas: No, of course not. That's when finn and i had found out that vinny had messed with steffy's paternity test results.
Baker: When vinny finally confessed you mean.
Thomas: I admit it got heated, and punches were thrown. But that's way different from murdering someone.
Ridge: Of course it is, son.
Baker: I'm well aware of the difference. Though it's possible that it was a precursor of what was to come.
Ridge: Oh, you know what? That's enough now. Vinny and thomas were friends. They knew each other since they were this big. And vinny made a lot of mistakes but he didn't deserve this. You know what he deserves, chief baker? Some justice. How about you go find who's responsible, can you do that?
Hope: Liam, you can't keep beating yourself up like this. You're human. I'm human. We all have regrets.
Liam: Yeah. But this is different.
Hope: How? How is it different?
Hope: Liam, you can't keep letting one awful night haunt you for the rest of your life. That's something that I had to come to terms with. Otherwise, it's going to rob you of so many things, so many moments for us, for our family. I mean, you do realize that, right? Liam, we have already lost so much time with each other because of what happened and that is time that we are not going to get back and I don't wanna lose any more. Life is too short. We agreed, right? That we're not going to dwell on the past, that we're going to move forward? Can you do that, liam? Will you do that right now for us?
Liam: I want to. You have no idea how much I want to.
Quinn: Hey, zoe.
Zoe: Oh, quinn. Finally. Yes, please come in. Hey. Have you been getting my texts? Why haven't you responded? And where have you been all morning? No, honestly, you can tell me all about that later but I just need to know. Did you make it over to carter's last night? Did you get to talk to him? Did he hear you out? And did you even get through to him?
Quinn: Uh, well...
Zoe: Oh, come on. Please, you--you have to tell me everything. I need to know everything that happened. Cell phone repair.
Zoe: But before you even say anything, I just have to thank you. I mean, seriously, I don't know what I did to deserve a friend like you. Really, everything that you're doing for carter and me-- I have never had someone quite like this in my corner, seriously. I mean, besides someone who's last name isn't buckingham because of course, paris has been there and tried to advocate for me. But you, I just feel like you have this magic touch or something. I mean, I hope, I really do, because I feel like lately my future with carter rests in your hands.
Quinn: I don't-- I don't know about that but I did my best.
Zoe: God, I just, I miss carter so much. I mean, his quiet confidence, his kindness, and the way he used to hold me in his arms, how he treated me. How we used to make love. Oh, god. I'm--I'm so sorry. I should have not even said anything like that to you. I'm really sorry. It's just-- it's really hard because I feel like-- I don't know. He's like everything a woman could want. I mean, everything I want. I mean, you probably understand. You feel the same way about eric, right?
Thomas: Look, I can't recall if I've told you this or not but I didn't have any communication with vinny. After he went to jail, I blocked him from my phone. I did not visit him. I cut all ties.
Baker: Your point?
Thomas: I don't have a point. I'm just giving you information. I don't wanna be accused of hiding anything.
Baker: Tell me something, thomas. Are you still shocked by what vinny did with those test results, I mean, messing with so many people's lives?
Thomas: Of course I'm shocked. It was crazy and it was stupid. But crazy and stupid should not have sentenced him to death. And we're talking a cruel, horrific death. I mean, tell me you are narrowing in on a suspect. You must have some lead.
Hope: This moment right now is a step forward. I mean, that's why you're back here with the children and me. And we have a bright, happy, carefree future just waiting for us but we need to embrace it. And we need to believe that we deserve it because, liam, we do. What happened was devastating and the repercussions were great but our family is worth it to me to try. I mean, have I reached the place of total forgiveness just yet? No, I haven'T. But do I believe that day will come? Yes. But liam, I need you to believe it too. And I need you to forgive yourself. We need to put that night and all of the heartbreak that came with it. We need to put it in the past where it belongs. I want us to move ahead... together.
Liam: I just-- I just love you so much and I really don't wanna be apart from you and the kids ever again.
Hope: Hey. Hey. You won't be. All right? We're gonna make sure of that. I am going to make sure of that. Okay?
Liam: I'm back home.
I'm back with my family.
I have everything I want.
I am blessed.
