Ridge: I want as much as you do for liam and hope to work this out.
Brooke: They will.
Ridge: Okay. But at some point, we're gonna have to face reality. That's what liam is doing. That's why--that's why he asked thomas to help him.
Brooke: Liam hasn't even been to trial. What if the jury finds him not guilty?
Ridge: For a hit-and-run that he has admitted to, I think the odds are against him.
Brooke: Maybe it will be a light sentence. He didn't choose to flee the scene. Makes no sense that he would push thomas towards hope.
Ridge: No--no. No one is pushing anyone. This--this is liam asking thomas to be there for his wife and kids. He just wants a stable presence in his life while he is somewhere else.
Ridge: Don't do that, please?
Brooke: I am just really worried, ridge, that if liam does go to jail for some years, that thomas is gonna think that he can be there for hope and his obsessive feelings will come out again. And we can't let that happen. It's too dangerous.
I know what liam asked of thomas. I just want you to be careful. Don't open yourself up too much to thomas.
Hope: Thank you. This has been hard but it helps knowing that I have so much support from so many people.
Thomas: You can count on me, um, I'm always here for you, anything you need.
Hope: Thank you. I--I--I really am grateful. Uh, look, I don't mean to cut this short but I--i actually really do have to get going, so have fun with douglas today.
Thomas: And like I said, you know, if there's anything I can do, just...
Hope: I appreciate that, thomas. I will be fine. I refuse to give up hope. Liam will come home to me and the kids because he has to.
Brooke: Tomorrow's fine? Okay, great. Same time, same place, see you there.
Ridge: Honey, I love you. And the last thing I want is to have an argument with you. What we need right now is the family to come together, but if you think that thomas is still going after hope, then I don'T...
Brooke: Honey, I love you too. But this is a slippery slope. Look. I'm just saying, liam did ask thomas to be there for hope but I'm--I'm afraid he might look at it as something romantic. And if that's the case and liam's in jail for a while, when he gets out, there's gonna be a lot of problems. And liam will get out and he will come home to hope and his family. Liam's family, not thomas'.
Thomas: Oh, geez, what? Come on, that is so annoying.
Zende: Phone issues?
Thomas: Uh, yeah. I am just trying to open this app and it just keeps freezing up.
Zende: Delete it maybe and try downloading it again.
Thomas: It's--it's not worth all that effort to me. It's just like a game I play when I'm bored.
Zende: Oh, hell no. I've been here working my butt off thinking that you are too busy to respond to my text and you've just been playing games?
Thomas: No, I was--no, I needed something to like keep my mind entertained for 15 seconds in the elevator.
Thomas: What text are you talking about?
Zende: The cutting room had some questions. That's okay. I'm handling it.
Thomas: No, it's not okay 'cause I didn't get your texts.
Zende: [ Sighs ] Oh, man. It happened to me before. It's probably just time to do an update or reset the whole thing.
Thomas: Uh, thanks for dealing with the cutting room and sorry for being a little late, I--I was-- I was with hope.
Zende: No, no worries. How's she doing?
Thomas: Yeah. I mean, she's trying to hold it together for--for beth and douglas but I can tell she's overwhelmed.
Zende: From what I'm hearing it sounds like liam could be locked up for a long time.
Thomas: Yeah, a, uh, a very long time.
Justin: You hanging in there?
Liam: I mean, you know, I'm trying.
Justin: Well, stay strong. You know I'm gonna do the best I can for you.
[ Phone ringing ]
Justin: [Clears throat ]
Man: It's normally only one visitor at a time but I'm feeling generous.
Liam: Thank you.
Man: Briefly generous.
Justin: I'm almost done. Thank you.
Hope: So how's the case coming? I mean it should be easy to prove that liam's innocent, right? He didn't mean to kill vinny. He wasn't part of the cover up.
Justin: That's according to liam and bill. I'm just concerned how it will look to the jury.
Hope: Please, justin, do whatever you can to get liam out of here. What's the #1 retinol brand
Ridge: Chances are liam is gonna serve some time. That means hope's gonna need some help and the kids are gonna need some help. Liam knows that and that's why he's asking thomas what he's asking him.
Brooke: If the worst should happen, if liam has to go away for this, hope will have plenty of help.
[ Sighs ] There's you and me and my sisters, your father, there's so many people in the family that will be there and care for her and her children.
Ridge: Absolutely. The whole family is gonna step up. And like it or not, that includes thomas.
Zende: Ah, sounds like my texts are finally coming through.
Thomas: Uh, well, maybe. I haven't heard that sound before though.
Zende: Try doing the phone reset, it's worked for me before.
Thomas: [ Sighs ] Okay. All right. Do I just go to settings or what?
Zende: Here, hand it over. I'm an expert of this now.
Zende: You're backed up, right?
Thomas: Yeah, I think so. Um, you know, actually, now is probably not a good time. I told hope that I'd be there for her and, you know, I don't want her to call and my phone not works.
Zende: Try not to worry. We'll fix this.
Thomas: All right.
Zende: Uh, she's gonna need a lot of support if liam does end up going to prison.
Thomas: Yeah, I know. It's just-- it's just a lot to think about. I mean, liam killed my friend.
Zende: By accident.
Thomas: Vinny's dead. Accident or not, liam's responsible. I mean, he was in the car. He hit vinny, he left him on the side of the road and then he went along with this whole thing to try and cover it up.
Zende: It's hard to defend.
Thomas: It's not defendable, there's no excuse for it. I mean, the only way this ends is with liam behind bars.
Hope: Please tell me you can get liam out of here, he's innocent.
Justin: Well, yes, but also no.
Hope: Oh, he would've never driven off, that was all bill.
Justin: And hopefully, that will work in liam's favor but he took so long to come forward. It's not looking good.
Liam: I get it. Just, um, do what you can for my dad and me.
Justin: I'll be back soon. There's a lot of papers to review if we want things to go our way at the trial.
Liam: Thanks, justin.
Liam: You can see it in his eyes.
Hope: See what?
Liam: He doesn't think I have a chance, hope.
Hope: Don't say that.
Liam: We have to come to terms with what might happen. I could be in here for a long time. Banana boat sunscreen
Brooke: Thomas has made tremendous progress, ridge. And you wanna know why? Because he's been focused on other things like work, his son, not on hope.
Brooke: I'm afraid if we ask him to be there for her
[ Sighs ], Oh god, it's gonna just open a can of worms and he's gonna get obsessed all over again.
Ridge: You know, I don't think it's fair to say that and to assume that at all. If liam gets the maximum sentence, if he can't be there for his wife and for his kids...
Brooke: What? That it's okay for thomas to make a move then?
Ridge: Then it's okay for thomas to honor this promise that he made to liam. Worst case scenario, liam never gets out. What do you want? What do you want for your daughter? You want her to be alone for the rest of her life? Don't you want her to have someone and I'm not saying it's thomas, I'm not saying that at all. But what if hope, at some point, looks around and says, "you know what? I just want someone--
[ Sighs ] I want someone that knows me and knows my kids, knows my life." And what if that person is thomas?
Liam: I know that we're hoping for the best but, emotionally, we have to prepare for what could very well happen and that-- that includes the kids.
Hope: Liam, no.
Liam: Hope, I've been thinking about this, like, a lot. I've been--I've been going over it and over it in my head.
Hope: I have, too, and they can't know yet, not until we're certain.
Liam: It's time. It's time. You're under enough pressure as it is, you don't need to be pretending that everything is fine around the kids when it's not.
Hope: I have to, I'm their mother.
Liam: Yes. Yes, you're a mother they have to be able to trust and--and what happens if they find out some other way? They're gonna wonder why you lied to them. I wish it wasn't necessary. I really do, but beth and douglas, they need to hear it from you, from you, that I might not be coming home.
Hope: You--you will.
Liam: Maybe. And even then, it--it--it could be years. We--we...
[ Sighs ] We have to accept the fact that our way of life may be changing here.
Hope: Do you understand what you're asking of me?
Liam: Yeah. I do. And I'm sorry. I hate that I'm doing this to you. I put us and our family in this position and we're in a crisis but you have to stop worrying about me and start taking care of yourself.
Hope: Then what? Give up on our hopes and our dreams? You are the only future I see, liam, don't you get that? And I'm not going to give up on us. And I won't like you to give up on us either, not ever.
[ Phone beeps ]
Zende: There we are.
Zende: You're good to go.
Thomas: Thank you. Oh, then, there are my texts-- are coming through. Thank you very much.
Zende: Nah, happy to help.
Thomas: Yeah. Are you taking off?
Zende: They're expecting me back in the cutting room. You might wanna read up on what's been going on. And feel free to respond to me when you're done playing your word game.
Thomas: And I will do.
[ Phone beeps ]
Thomas: "I miss you man. Don't block me. My life has reached a dead-end."
