Steffy: Thanks. I wish there was something I could do. Seriously, finn and I are here if you need anything.
Hope: All the same goes for you. I know this has been difficult for your family as well. I mean, neither one of our daughters gets to see liam.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] I'm just dreading kelly asking me where her dad is.
[ Phones beeps ]
[ Sighs ]
Hope: The kids won't be back for another few hours.
Steffy: You need a break.
Hope: [ Sighs ] Liam wants me to tell the kids what's happening but... I can'T. Not until I know what the future holds.
Steffy: That might not be for a while. I just wish there was a way to prove that liam didn't run over vinny on purpose.
Hope: They're talking about taking this to trial, unless they reach some sort of deal.
[ Sighs ] None of this should he happening. And it's all because of bill.
Bill: What about the game?
Katie: They won. Will scored a goal.
Bill: Of course he did. I told him all that practice would make the difference. What about his school work?
Katie: Straight as so far.
Bill: Ah. That's our boy. He takes after his mom.
Bill: I'm a survivor, katie. And I'm surviving. I'm not gonna let this take me down. Justin is going to get liam and me out of here.
Hope: So how do we do this? I mean, how we sit our kids down and tell them their father is in prison?
Steffy: I wish I had an answer for you. I've been wondering the exact same thing myself.
Hope: Is there some way we can explain this to them without completely terrifying them? I mean, kelly is still so young, and--and beth, she's not going to understand.
Steffy: We shouldn't even be in this position. The father of our children was involved in a horrible accident, but that's all it was. It was bill who made this into a crime.
Katie: I don't understand. Why can't you and liam get out on bail?
Bill: We're potential flight risks.
Katie: [ Sighs ] There has to be something more we can do.
Bill: The goal is that this doesn't go to trial. But they are bringing some pretty serious charges against us.
Katie: I realize that, but your son needs you at home.
Bill: Katie, I'm doing the best I can. I told justin I will pay any amount of money to get us out on bail. Whatever it takes. I told justin to do his damn job and get us home to our kids.
Vinny: Vinny out.
[ Tires screech ]
Liam: Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Did-- did I--is he...
Bill: I don't know.
Liam: Oh, my god. It's vinny. Hey, vinny. Hey, buddy.
Bill: Wait, wait, wait. You know this guy?
Liam: Yeah. Yes. I know him. This is--this is...
Wyatt: I'm still waiting on that deal memo. Okay. Well, let me know if you hear anything from their cfo. Okay. Thanks. Hey, justin. Uh, I didn't know you're in here. Any update on my dad and my brother? 'Cause, I mean, we're all counting on you to get them out of there. So tell me you have a plan. You do have a plan, don't you, justin?
Steffy: Liam doesn't deserve to be in there.
Hope: Just one night can change someone's life so dramatically.
Steffy: Yeah. And now vinny's gone, and liam's in prison, and our daughters might be facing a future without their father.
Hope: It's wrong. All of it. None of this. It shouldn't be this way.
Steffy: Yeah. Liam's paying the price for bill's idiotic decision.
Hope: Liam admits he should have come forward sooner. That was a mistake.
Steffy: Well, he was worried about the kids, and he didn't wanna burden you.
Hope: Yeah. Well, he was also being influenced by his father.
Steffy: I still don't get why bill did what he did.
Hope: Trying to protect the family, I guess.
Steffy: He actually thought he could get away with it.
Hope: Well, bill spent the majority of his life acting as if the rules don't apply to him. Doing whatever he wants and no one will hold them accountable.
Steffy: Till now.
Hope: [ Sighs ] Bill was obviously doing this to try to help liam, but clearly he doesn't know his own son well enough because there is no way liam could have kept a secret like that.
Steffy: Yeah. He's an innocent man caught up in a troubling web of circumstances.
Hope: Bill is someone who deserves to be punished.
Katie: We have to get you out of here. What kind of case is justin putting together?
Bill: I don't want you worrying about this, katie. It doesn't do any good.
Katie: You are the father of my son and... no matter what, I love you. Of course, I'm gonna worry about you.
Bill: I love you too, katie. And you've got enough on your plate.
Katie: [ Sighs ] I just wanna make sure that everything is being done to get you out.
Bill: Look, I confessed. Liam and I came forward and we admitted to everything that we'd done.
Katie: Well, you did the right thing. That's got to count for something.
Bill: Apparently not much. It was too little too late. And I take full responsibility for that. But what the hell was that loser vinny doing out on that street in the middle of the night? I mean, nothing good, I can assure you. That lowlife drug dealer. Not to mention what he did with steffy's paternity test. Well, I'm not gonna let that night ruin my life. I told justin to do everything in his power to get us out of here, whatever it takes.
Justin: I can definitely understand you're becoming impatient.
Wyatt: Oh, it's not just me. Dad is too. He's wondering when the hell you're gonna get them out of that jail cell. And--and liam as well. He's losing it inside that place. He's missing beth and douglas like crazy.
Justin: I'm on top of it, wyatt. As a matter of fact, I was just putting together a strategy right now.
Wyatt: Oh. Like what? I'm sorry. You're--listen, you're an excellent attorney, and--and I--I'm not questioning that, but you're a corporate guy and this is a criminal case. So I just--I'd like to know that there's a--that there's an actual plan. That's all.
Justin: I can assure you there is a plan, and this is getting my full and complete attention.
Wyatt: Okay. All right. Good.
Wyatt: Thank you.
Justin: You're welcome.
Wyatt: You know, I'm just-- I'm relieved to hear you say that, because you--you've been my dad's like most loyal friend for god knows how long, and--and you never let him down before. Um, I just-- it's reassuring to know that my dad and my brother both have someone like you in their corner.
Justin: I really appreciate the sentiment. I have a meeting that I can't miss that's very important. If you'll excuse me.
Wyatt: No. Sure. Sure. Sure.
Wyatt: [ Clears throat ] Justin. They need you. My family, they're counting on you to do whatever it takes.
Justin: Definitely make the situation right.
Katie: I just don't know what's gonna happen, and it scares me.
Bill: Katie, when I say I'm gonna do something, I do it, right? I'll be damned if I'm gonna stay in here. I just need you to have a little faith.
Katie: Do you have faith, bill? Are you really convinced that justin is gonna be able to get you released?
Bill: Well, he sure as hell better. People have gotten out on bail for a lot worse.
Katie: I just wish I knew how to navigate this thing with will. How to ease his fear and his confusion. I mean, I don't wanna lie to him.
Bill: Then don'T. Tell him the truth. That his dad is gonna be coming home to him. That spencer men never give up.
Katie: He's at that age where kids are starting to say something.
Bill: Are you telling me he's getting bullied?
Katie: No. Not yet. But they're starting to talk.
Bill: That's because their parents are flapping their big mouths.
Katie: It's a high-profile case, bill. I mean, they're bound to be curious.
Bill: Curiosity killed the cat.
Katie: Will's trying to be strong. I know this is taking a toll on him. He's not sleeping. Neither am I.
Bill: Katie, I am so sorry. But I promise you-- I promise you that I will be around for will and for you. I just need you to hang on a little while longer. Just until I walk out of this rat hole a free man.
Hope: Justin's loyalty to bill is unlike anything I've seen before.
Steffy: That's a good thing though, isn't it?
Hope: If you're bill. I'm worried liam could get lost in the shuffle.
Steffy: Bill's not gonna let that happen. Liam's freedom is more important to bill than his own.
Hope: Well, bill is the reason liam is in jail. He's the reason we're all in this mess.
Steffy: The da could make an example out of both of them.
Hope: Yeah. I mean, you should have been there. I mean, justin's meeting with liam, let's just say it wasn't hopeful.
Steffy: What did justin say?
Hope: Well, he did promise me that he would do everything he could to get liam out of there but he believes that a trial is imminent. And liam isn't confident that he has a strong case.
Steffy: Well, liam did feel pressure from bill to keep the secret.
Hope: Yeah, I mean, that would mean something if bill had actually threatened him but... the da and the police are trying to say that liam planned everything. That he purposely tried to run over vinny and... we're talking manslaughter charges, steffy, possibly murder.
Steffy: Murder? That--that--that's insane. You're telling me that they think liam was that angry that he killed vinny because he switched the dna results?
Hope: It's a tragic twist of fate. And nothing more and that's the truth. But how do we make them believe that?
Thomas: Hello! Can anybody hear me?! Hey! Let me out of here! Is there anybody there?! Anyone, help! Justin? Is that you? What am I doing here? Why am I locked in a cage?!
Justin: All that evidence is on your phone?
Thomas: Yeah. Everything. From--from vinny confessing to suicide all the way up to the--the car hitting him. Well, that changes things, right? It means that liam and bill will get out of jail. Which is exactly why I need to tell baker and--and steffy and hope.
Justin: Hey, thomas?
Thomas: Yeah. You. You did this. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,
Steffy: It's the da's job to prove liam's guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It's not his responsibility to prove that he's innocent.
Hope: Exactly. But liam waiting weeks to confess that he was the one behind the wheel... doesn't look good.
Steffy: This is just so crazy. Like I have so many questions. Why was vinny there? What was he doing? Why was he in the middle of the street? Why was he in that neighborhood?
Hope: No one knows.
Steffy: Maybe it could help explain things.
Hope: Maybe or maybe it is just a terrible coincidence or bad luck. I mean, either way, vinny and liam's fates are now horribly intertwined forever.
Steffy: It's too late for vinny, but it's not too late for liam.
Hope: You're right. You're right, steffy. We have to fight for him. We have to fight for him for our daughters' sakes. We have to fight for him and somehow prove that liam hitting vinny was completely accidental.
Katie: We have to think about how we're going to get through this. If this is our new reality, we have to prioritize our son and figure out a way to--to help him through this.
Bill: Listen to me, katie. I am not allowing will's future to be destroyed by this or liam's life to go down in flames because of decisions I made.
Katie: No, you're gonna do everything you can, but we have to be realistic.
Bill: I will be there for you. I will be there for our family.
[ Buzzes ]
Officer: Time's up, spencer.
Bill: Katie, look at me. Everything's gonna be okay. You tell will, dad love him. And that his dad is coming home. Justin's gonna get me out.
Thomas: Justin, why am I here? You sucker-punched me and brought me down here, why? You hear me?! Did you listen to what I told you before?! Vinny targeted liam. Liam and bill shouldn't even be in jail right now. So let's go! Let's get out of here! We can get them out of jail right now. Would you say something? All right. Listen to me, hope, steffy, they need to know the truth. They need to know what's going on, so do the police. I told you what happened, justin. This wasn't--this wasn't manslaughter. It wasn't murder. It wasn't an accident. Those two shouldn't be in jail right now. This is about-- this is about liam, and it's about bill, and it's about getting them out of jail right now. They're your clients! What am I doing here? What--can you just say something? Let me go.
Justin: That's not gonna happen.
Thomas: Why not? Because we could leave here right now and both of your clients, guess what? They're out of jail. Liam can be back with his family tonight. And so can bill. Bill can be running the company again. Isn't that what you want? Unless... that's it. [ Laughs ] That's it, isn't it? Spencer publications. You don't want them out of jail. You want them to stay in there as long as possible so that you can take over the company and run it for yourself. Am I right, justin? Answer me, justin. Answer me!
