Liam: Twenty-four hours?
Bill: That's right.
Liam: Dad, uh, no.
Bill: "Dad, no"? Liam, you can't give me 24 hours on the biggest life-changing decision you could possibly make?
Hope: Well, he's-- he's been in hell.
Bill: He's in hell now. What do you think prison life is like? That's why I'm trying to reach you guys. Twenty-four hours, spend that time together. Look at your life, think about your future, what your plans are. If tomorrow you wanna walk away, I won't stop you. But until then, not a word.
Zoe: Oh, I mean it. I can't thank you enough, quinn.
Quinn: Well, I was happy to help. And when there are two people who are so good together, who have such undeniable chemistry, I-- I had to step in, right?
Zoe: Well, carter and i definitely appreciate it.
Carter: We do.
Zoe: Quinn, gosh, I kinda, like, I'm just forever indebted to you. Seriously, thank you. Thank you for using every trick up your sleeve to get through to him.
[ Laughter ]
Quinn: I didn't resort to any tricks.
Zoe: No, no, no, of course not. But, you know, uh, let's face it, carter definitely needed some extra prodding. And I don't know, if I put him in someone else's hands, I really don't know if he would have come around the way that he did. And you--no, seriously, you knew exactly what to do.
Quinn: Uh, I think you're giving me way too much credit. I just--I--I got lucky, that's all. And, you know, look, I'm just glad it worked out. You two are back together because this is where carter belongs, in your arms, zoe.
Shauna: Quinn, I heard you were...
Quinn: Yeah, uh...
Shauna: Oh, I am sorry, it looks like I'm interrupting, so I will come back.
Zoe: Uh, no, please, stay. I'm actually glad that you're here. I, uh, think that's it's time that, um, we have a talk. I have a lot that I need to say.
Wyatt: I got one question for you.
Wyatt: Red or white?
Flo: Um, well, it kinda depends what we're talking about.
Wyatt: The type of wine you prefer when-- when I make you dinner.
Flo: You're gonna-- you're gonna make me dinner, huh?
Wyatt: Uh-hmm. I'll tell you what, we can leave now, I can open up that bottle, light the fire, make you whatever your heart desires, and then maybe one thing leads to another.
Flo: [ Laughs ] Okay. I--I see where you're going with this.
Wyatt: Going home.
Wyatt: Thank you. Let's go.
Flo: I like the idea.
Flo: But are you sure you wanna leave right now? Yeah, I don't-- I don't mind hanging out for a little bit longer. I know you want to see your dad.
Wyatt: [ Sighs ] Yeah. I mean, look, I--I--I do wanna talk to him. I wanna get him to open up. I mean, he left in such a hurry earlier with no explanation. I don't know, I'm telling you that there's something going on between him and liam. And whatever it is... I mean, it's got to be something trouble.
Liam: You don't know what you're asking.
Bill: I'm not asking. You can't go to the police. Not without really spending time together and thinking this through. And fully understanding what you'd be giving up.
Liam: I already understand that.
Bill: Oh, the hell you do. You know, when you'll understand? When those prison guards are--are stripping you out of your designer clothes, giving you a full body search, leading you to your cell, slamming the bars close. That's when you'll understand. Is that the life you want, liam? No. Your life is here with hope and beth and kelly. You want those daughters to grow up visiting their convict father in prison? That's the kind of father you want to be?
Liam: No, but look at the father I am now, it's just guilt all the time.
Bill: Don't feel guilty over a drug-dealing criminal. Not for a minute.
Hope: He was a person, bill.
Bill: He was a piece of garbage, hope, who had no compunction about destroying your lives and screwing with steffy's paternity test, stand-up guy.
Liam: He didn't deserve to die.
Bill: And you don't deserve to go to prison. That's why you're gonna give me this 24 hours. Spend this time together. Think about what your life will be like with liam at home or liam locked away. Promise me.
Liam: Fine. Fine. Yes. We can give you that. We will talk it over and then... by tomorrow, we'll know if we're going to the police or... if we're keeping this secret forever. What's the #1 retinol brand
Shauna: You wanna talk to me?
Zoe: Yes. I do. Just woman to woman, just the two of us.
Carter: Well, zoe, anything you have to say in front of shauna, you can say in front of me, too. I mean, it took two, right?
Quinn: Actually, I would like to stay as well. Shauna is my best friend and even though we're friends, zoe, I wanna make sure this stays cordial and respectful.
Zoe: I have every intention of keeping this cordial. I mean, really, I'm not interested in attacking you, shauna, at all. And, yeah, I'm fully aware that carter and I were not engaged when you decided to make your move. Um, we weren't in a committed relationship, so yeah, you technically were in the right. But I mean, still, I--I--I'm a little hurt by it and also surprised. I mean, really, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me how he'd just turn to you so quickly and I just-- I wanna know why.
Zoe: Yeah. How did this happen? You know, how did you end up sleeping with carter?
Flo: Why don't you just call your dad or text him or something?
Wyatt: Asking about liam? He just won't respond. No. Whatever is going on with those two, both of them are keeping it secret.
Bill: Oh, uh, everybody out.
Wyatt: Dad, I just-- I wanna talk--
Bill: Go talk to your fiancee anywhere this building but my office. I've got things to do.
Wyatt: No. Not until I get some answers. I'm worried about you and I'm concerned for liam, too.
Hope: What if your dad's right? What if going to the police is a mistake?
Liam: I mean, is that what you think?
Hope: I--I don't know.
Liam: I was--I was so sure, you know, seconds ago, I was so sure that--that the truth have to come out after I confess to you and now...
Hope: Well, that was my thought, too, but now, I--I don't know. I don't know. Uh, the only thing I know is that I love you. And I'm proud of you, but, oh, your dad, he does have a point.
Liam: Yeah. Okay. So--so--so, what? We just think it over. Give it a day. Is that...
Hope: If we go to the police and tell them what happened, there's a chance you could be in jail for a very long time and--and you would miss out on kelly and beth's childhood.
Liam: I know. That's the thing. I don't want them to grow without me. I don't wanna be a stranger to my own children, but what I did... vinny is dead because of me. It's because of me. So, I--I have to come forward, right? I mean, uh, I have to admit what I did. Uh, don't I?
Hope: Oh, we need to figure that out because whatever we decide affects the rest of our lives. If you have obstructive sleep apnea and you're often tired during the day, you could be missing out on amazing things.
Shauna: How? How did I end up with carter? Well, shouldn't that be a private conversation between you and carter?
Zoe: I'd like to hear your perspective.
Shauna: Uh, okay. Well, it--it just happened. You know, it was just one of those things.
Shauna: You know, shauna, don'T. Um, I know you say you wanna know about it, but you don't, not really. And I don't wanna put you through that. I don't wanna hurt you anymore than I have, okay?
Zoe: I can handle it, carter. And honestly, I--I don't know if I can really move on if I don't hear the other woman's side.
Zoe: You know, I don't know, maybe I sound crazy being so curious about these kinds of things but, you know, I--I've been in carter's bed and I have been held by his arms, you know. So, I know firsthand how carter makes a woman feel and now, you do too. And so, I just--I wanna know. I mean, are you really willing to let go of all of that? Walk away from a man like carter without putting up a fight?
Wyatt: Dad, I'm not letting this go.
Bill: Letting what go?
Wyatt: I don't know. Whatever the hell is going on between you and liam.
Flo: Look, if--if there's-- if there's something wrong or if there's problem, we just wanna be able to help.
Bill: There's nothing you can do. Nothing.
Hope: Okay. Great. Uh, I'll pick her up first thing in the morning. Yup. Sounds good. And, uh, I'll probably call later tonight to wish her good night. Okay. Thanks.
Liam: Do you-- do you think maybe we ought to rethink that because if this is-- if this is my last night at home, I don't-- I don't want beth over at donna'S.
Hope: No, I don't want that either, but liam, I mean, there's so much at stake. And we--we can't have that kind of conversation with the kids here.
Liam: And for sure thomas is not bringing douglas back home tonight?
Hope: No, no, he's not gonna be here until the morning and that way that gives us some time to--to figure this out.
Liam: Um, it's like we could think about this all night. We could weigh every single pro and con and still not come up with an answer.
Hope: No. I know. I know. It's one of the biggest decisions of our life. I mean, whatever we decide, it could determine whether we even see each other ever again.
Liam: I don't wanna think about that. I [ Cries ] I don't want-- I don't even wanna admit that that's possible.

Shauna: Zoe, if you are threatened by me at all, don't be. I don't have any intentions of making any kind of moves on carter.
Zoe: But can you just flip that switch? I mean, can you really turn off any feelings that you had for him because, I mean, I certainly couldn't when we were apart.
Quinn: Zoe, listen, I've spoken to shauna about this, you know, and I've--I've also spoken to carter and they've both been really upfront. You know, it's a fling that is never gonna happen again. So you don't need to question shauna, you don't need to worry about her because--or carter knows what he wants and that's you, zoe, right, carter?
Carter: Right. Quinn helped me realize how much I need you, zoe, and I do. I need you. I need the life we were planning. And it's right in front of us, marriage, children, we just have to put the mistakes behind us, you with zende and--and this. We can't think about it anymore. We can't dwell on it. I want a life with you.
Zoe: And I do, too. I do. And you-- you understand that, right?
Shauna: Yup. Loud and clear.
Zoe: Good. Good. Because even if you told quinn that it was just a fling, I know differently. Yeah. Giving up carter is a little harder than what you're letting on. But now carter and i are together again, which means that you or any other woman will never have their hands on him again.
Bill: I appreciate both of you being concerned, but there's nothing to worry about.
Wyatt: And liam's fine?
Bill: As long as he doesn't screw it up.
Hope: Just when we were finally all back together. Our beautiful family, after everything we've been through.
Liam: I don't wanna leave you. But if I end up in front of a judge after having kept this hidden for so long, my dad is right, they're not gonna go easy on me.
Hope: Hey, it was an accident. You didn't mean to hit him.
Liam: Of course, I didn't mean to hit him, he just appeared in the road and I didn't have time to react, but the law is the law.
Hope: But liam, you didn't break the law. Your father did when he put you in the car and drove away and let vinny on the side of the road. That was the crime. If you hadn't had done that, we wouldn't even be having this conversation right now. If he had just called the police and... I understand that your dad was trying to protect you. But the decisions that he made that night, the risks, playing god like that, it could cost us our family.
Liam: If we tell. If--if I go to the police and confess. But then again, I--uh, how can I not? Because what's the alternative? I do what? I just bottle this up for the rest of my life knowing that I killed a guy? I can't do that. So... oh, god. I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. I--I did it again. I put you in this position again. I--maybe I shouldn't have told you.
Hope: No. No. I told you that I was going to be here for you and I am. Okay. I'm gonna be right by your side. I'm not going to let you go through this alone.
Liam: I can't tell you what it means to me, the burden, it lifted being able to share this with you. I never wanna keep anything from you ever again and I won't, I really won'T. Just being here at home with you and the kids, it's like-- it's like I can breathe again, you know. But even then, even still, it's there. It's there in the back of my mind seeing him in the road, knowing I hit him, the blood, watching him take his last breathe, it'S... even when I close my eyes it's there. It doesn't go away.
Hope: We said we were going to take our time to focus on us and our love and our family. So that's exactly what we're going to do. Let's take the night and celebrate us. I wanna hold you and never let you go ever again. . .
