Episode #8525 ~ Hope attempts to make sense of Liam's fear of losing everything. Wyatt referees the escalating situation between Bill and Thomas.

Provided By Suzanne

Liam: It's true. I wish to god it wasn'T. But it's true. My whole world was turned upside down, and I can--I can-- I can feel life as I knew it is slipping through my fingers, minute by minute, I'm gonna lose you and the kids, this time for real.

Hope: No. No.

Liam: And any chance with you...

Hope: Stop it. Stop it.

Liam: ...So I thought I had is gonna be gone because I did this, because I... I killed him, I killed vinny.

Thomas: You know, vinny was like a brother to me my entire life. I've always been kind of a loner, I only had a small group of friends, but you know what? Vinny topped that list.

Bill: Well, like attracts like, no wonder you couldn't do any better.

Thomas: He's a good person, bill. He was loyal to a fault. And he wasn't insane, everybody knows that because he's a human being and he had people who cared about him. He didn't deserve to get mowed down by some gutless coward.

Flo: Kids must be so excited that liam's back home?

Brooke: Oh, they are. Especially beth.

Ridge: She's a real daddy's girl, isn't she?

Brooke: She most certainly is.

Ridge: It's one of life's greatest joys, your daughter looking at you like you hung the moon.

Flo: Hope must be happy, too.

Brooke: Yes. I haven't seen her genuinely smile in so long. Life is good for them again. This is why I wonder why bill has concerns, it doesn't really make sense to me. Liam is back where he belongs with hope. The future that he had planned. It didn't derail, it's back on track. Bill should be thrilled.

Bill: Gee, would seem that my response card to the pity party you're throwing for your test-rigging, drug-dealing friend got lost in the mail.

Thomas: So you think the way that vinny died is perfectly fine?

Bill: It's how he died. What do you want from me?

Thomas: A little humanity maybe.

Bill: Humanity? Humanity? What did I do with my human-- oh, damn it, I left it in my other change. As far as I'm concerned, whoever hit vinny just took out the garbage.

Thomas: You know what it sounds to me? It sounds to me like you're perfectly fine with the person who killed vinny getting away with it. For now, anyway.

Hope: Stop talking like that.

Liam: I did it, hope. I'm the one who hit vinny.

Hope: No, no! That can't be. You didn't kill him. You didn't kill anybody.

Liam: It was me. I'm the one the police are looking for. Vinny is dead because of me.

Pain doesn't care

how old you are.

Flo: Can I ask you a favor?

Brooke: Okay.

Flo: You know hope better than anyone else, except maybe liam.

Brooke: Uh, you were right the first time.

Ridge: Brooke is definitely the hope expert.

Flo: Well, if--if you sense that she needs something that I can maybe help with, or if she would potentially be open for coffee or dinner with me, can you let me know? Because I--I really don't wanna push her--push it at all but I--I would really like to take some little steps to forming a relationship with her.

Brooke: Sure. I'll keep my eyes and ears on it.

Flo: Thank you.

Ridge: And as--as far as that thing with bill goes, I--I really don't know.

Brooke: Maybe wyatt misread the situation. When I was there earlier, bill was really happy that hope and liam were reconciling. And he wants that for their family as much as I do.

Ridge: So why-- why do we think that there's a problem between bill and liam?

Flo: Maybe it's a-- a work-related thing?

Brooke: Is that what wyatt thinks?

Flo: No, he doesn't-- he has no idea what it is. He just sensed that there is some tension between the two of them.

Ridge: Because he asked bill about it.

Flo: And he also asked liam but they both denied anything was wrong. But he--he doesn't think that they're being straight with him.

Brooke: So he believes that they're hiding something?

Flo: Yeah. He does. Uh, which is what's alarming to him because bill doesn't usually keep him out of the loop.

Ridge: Can I just give you a little tip about your future father-in-law? Whenever bill opens his mouth, it's a lie. And I feel sorry for those two boys to have to navigate their life around that, don't you?

Thomas: Some lowlife hit vinny and they killed him. And they left him dead on the side of the road.

Bill: You know, you and your boy, you have some rather, you know, unusual proclivities. Well, in--in vinny's case, had, but do you ever ask yourself what he was doing walking down the street in the middle of the night?

Thomas: It doesn't matter, he didn't deserve to die.

Bill: No, actions have consequences.

Thomas: You really are heartless.

Bill: Yeah. Supposed you're right, I--I can't be heartless particularly when I'm pushed, and you're pushing me. You, the son of a [Bleep] Who perpetuated the lie about my granddaughter's death, who tortured my son, hope, steffy, and our families. And you want me to stand here and listen to your sob story about vinny? Vinny who tried to send my son down a path that wasn't his to take, I mean, you talk about lowlifes? That piece of trash tried to play god with at least four people's lives including your own sister. But you don't care about that, do you?

Thomas: You know I care. You know I care about steffy. You know I care about hope. You know I care about these people, okay? Vinny made a mistake. I shunned him from my life for it, okay? Yeah. He made a big mistake and he deserved to pay a price but not this.

Bill: He don't look so expensive, no doubt, but life is rarely fair.

Thomas: So well you just accept that? Someone mowed vinny down and left him dead on the side of the road.

[ Car tire screeching ]

Bill: [ Grunts ] Vinny was murdered. Someone killed him left him there on the side of the road like he was nothing. Vinny wasn't nothing, okay? Vinny was my friend. Someone killed him and I'm going to find who that is and I'm going to make them pay.

Wyatt: Hey, dad. Well, this is interesting gathering. What the hell are you doing here?

Thomas: I'm just finding out your father is a little more callous than I originally thought. You know, I'm starting to think that if you were the person in the car that night and you mowed vinny down, you would have left him for dead, too.

Hope: No. No. It's not true.

Liam: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, hope. I wish I could tell you something different. I don't want to be this person.

Hope: Well, you're not. I know, you-- you wouldn't do that, you couldn'T.

Liam: I hate that I'm causing you this much pain again. I hate...

Hope: Stop. Stop talking like that, okay? You--you--you didn't kill vinny. No.

Liam: I did.

Hope: No. You wouldn't-- you would never kill anybody, you would never run over someone and leave them for dead on the side of the road. Oh, my god. You did. It's--it's true?

Liam: Yes.

Hope: [ Crying ] You did it? You ran over vinny and left him for dead. In this ad pay attention to the actor's gums.

Brooke: Why are you so hung up on bill? You're suspicious of every breath he takes.

Ridge: With good reason, I think.

Flo: Well, all I know is that wyatt said that he's walked in on some odd intensity between bill and liam recently. Mostly coming from bill. Ridge: At a time when he should just be happy for his son, right, and the future he's gonna have, yeah, that is suspicious, right?

Brooke: Let's just slow down here a little bit, okay? Look, fathers and sons disagree sometimes. I mean, look at you and thomas, there's always some kind of tension there, doesn't mean the sky is falling.

Ridge: All right. Take it easy, chicken little, we're talking about spencer.

Flo: You really don't like him, do you?

Ridge: No, I really don't, not a bit. You got to help me with something. If wyatt says something or-- or if--if bill says something, you overhear, just try to read between the lines. Something isn't right here.

Bill: I didn't even know your son of a [Bleep] Friend existed until he screwed with my son's life, much like you did, because you're two peas in a freaking pod, so no. For a multitude of reasons, I have no sympathy for you and I'm not gonna shed any tears over your boy vinny.

Thomas: You could just respect him as a human being who died for no reason whatsoever.

Bill: Why do we take a look at that? Drug dealer, check. Paternity test forgery, check. Unpaid parking tickets, I'm betting, yeah. So we'll check that one just for fun, but ultimately, your buddy lost his life because he was walking down the street in the middle of the night like an idiot.

Thomas: You're a real piece of work, you know that?

Bill: I know.

Wyatt: I think it's best if you leave before something happens.

Thomas: Just standing there, all holier than thou like you've never made a mistake. You know what, you didn't know vinny. I did, okay? I know what made him who he is. Was he perfect? Absolutely not, but he didn't have a mean or a vindictive bone in his body, and that's more-- more that I could ever say about you.

Bill: That was such a moving story, I am so touched. Wyatt, can you get me a tissue?

Thomas: He...

Bill: Are you done?

Thomas: He was sorry for what he did. He was sorry for switching the dna results. He made a mistake. Haven't you ever made a mistake that you wish you could have gone back and correct it? Vinny was mowed down, he was murdered. He was killed. And I'm gonna find the person who did it. And I won't stop until I do.

Wyatt: So what the hell was that about?

Liam: Vinny would be alive right now if it weren't for me. And hope, I'm-- I'm so sorry to lay all this on you. I know--I know how shocked you must be. I wanted to tell you but every-- every time I looked at you, I saw the trust in your eyes, and I just felt like human garbage.

Hope: This-- this actually happened, we're-- we're really having this conversation right now?

Liam: I came close a couple of times, by the way, to telling you, I just felt like lying.

Hope: Why didn't you?

Liam: Because it's dark and ugly. And I didn't-- I didn't want to dump this toxic thing onto our family, I didn't wanna put you on this position where you-- you feel like you have to lie from me. I just couldn't-- I mean, I'm so ashamed of this.

Hope: So... you hit vinny? Was it on purpose? I--I--I know how upset you were with him for altering the paternity test, but, I mean, would you really act out of anger? I mean, did you deliberately run him over? I mean, please, liam, tell me it was an accident. Please, tell me it was an accident.

Liam: Of course, it was accident. He just appeared in front of the car, but hope, that doesn't change the fact that I-- I killed someone. Does scrubbing grease and food feel like a workout?

Wyatt: Come on, dad. What did I just walk in on with you and thomas? I--I mean, don't try and play me out of the room either.

Bill: He just walked on me, exercising restraint with forrester's freak show of a son. What he did to liam, to hope, to our family?

Wyatt: I know. What was he doing up here anyway?

Bill: I don't know, something--something about eye on fashion.

Wyatt: Oh, right. The feature that flo set up for hope for the future.

Bill: Yeah. Well, he just should have kept on moving. Hey, about a-- about a pat on the back for your dad for not ripping his throat out while I had to stand here listening to him wax on about his loser friend. Well, no. Sorry. I'm not gonna shed any tears or be in mourning for that paternity test-switching, drug-dealing lowlife piece of garbage.

Wyatt: I know. Vinny was all those things but...

Bill: No, there's no but, wyatt.

Wyatt: No. Dad, I'm saying I'm with you. Both of those guys, thomas and vinny, they have done things to hurt my family, our family, but vinny was thomas' best friend, he just wants to find out who killed him and he wants them to pay.

Liam: I killed vinny and then I kept it a secret. And because of that, everything I love and hold dear is gonna be taken away from me and that is what I deserve.

Hope: All this time you were talking about that night and I-- I thought you meant that night with steffy that you were still torturing yourself about it.

Liam: I know. I know. I--I know. And I absolutely regret the night with steffy but this is-- I actually killed somebody.

Hope: Okay. Okay. Liam, I need to understand so please-- please just tell me exactly what happened. You said it was the night that you came over and we kissed for the first time in a long time and-- and then, you drove your dad's car home because he was drinking and...

Liam: Ironic, isn't it? I was trying to be safe, responsible.

Hope: So, what, the accident happened when you were on your way back to bill's? Liam: I was so happy that night too, you know, he let me kiss you and felt like we were on our way back to each other, like-- like you might forgive me, and I had my family back, I was over the moon about it. You know how dark that road is all the way to my dad'S. Hope and I obviously still have a long way to go. I wasn't speeding. I'm always careful when I drive on mulholland, through the canyon but all of a sudden-- and I mean, out of nowhere, this figure just appeared in front of the car and I didn't have time to react or swerve. I just felt this, um... thud.

[ Thuds ]

Liam: I slammed on the brakes. My dad and I jumped out of the car and ran towards-- what we now knew was a person, and then, as I got close I saw it was... vinny? Oh, my god, it's vinny. Hey, vinny?

Hope: Was he still alive?

Liam: At that point, yes.

Hope: So did you help him?

Liam: Of course. Of course, I tried to help him. We got to call 911. Hey, vinny? I'm so sorry, man. We're gonna get you help, you just-- you just stay still, help is coming, okay? It's just-- I don't think much could be done at that point if you could hear his breathing, it was like-- it was like there's this rattling in his chest that hurts just to hear it, I can still hear it. And then he just stopped... died.

Hope: So vinny died and you just--what? You just drove off?

Liam: No. No. Um... I--I--I guess I was just overwhelmed seeing it but, uh, I passed out.

Hope: You passed out? Oh, so then, how did you get home? Liam?

Liam: When I was unconscious, my dad put me back in the car.

Hope: Oh, my god. So it was bill. Bill was the one who drove away and left vinny for dead?
