Hope: It wasn't an accident?
Thomas: Vinny stepped in front of the car on purpose.
Hope: To target Liam. I mean, how could he have possibly known that he-- he would be...
Thomas: Uh, I don't know all the details. I know he's using an app to try and track him. Uh, it doesn't really matter. At the end of the day, he knew where Liam would be.
Hope: So Vinny--I mean, he actually--he killed himself?
Thomas: Yeah. Vinny was troubled. I didn't realize how much pain he was in. Obviously he was willing to die in order to set Liam up.
[ Tire screeching ]
Ridge: [ Sighs ] Well, Wyatt's gone. It's just you and me now. Out with it.
Justin: Out with what? I wasn't holding anything back because of Wyatt. Told you what I know.
Ridge: You told me a lot of things except where my son is.
Justin: On a plane, I suspect.
Ridge: So fine. He went on a trip as you would tell me. Didn't say anything to me, to his family, to his friends, but he told you. And you expect me to buy that?
Justin: You know, ridge, I don't expect anything for you to leave this building. You know what, I got a lot on my plate, I don't have time for this.
Ridge: You know what, I'm not going anywhere until I get some news on my son. Where is he?
[ Waves crashing ]
[ Phone chimes ]
Finn: It's so nice everyone reaching out and wishing as well.
Steffy: [ Laughs ] Yeah. Actually, though, it's my-- my mom again. She's dying to meet her grandson. She's asking for an hourly photo update. It's... [ Laughs ]
Steffy: I just thought Thomas would've reached out by now.
Finn: He hasn't gotten back to you yet?
Steffy: No. I have a baby and... I don't hear one word from my brother?
Steffy: I mean, I get that Thomas is busy, but... hello? Like, look at this cuteness.
Finn: I know, right? Look, I'm sure Thomas has his reasons.
[ Knocking on door ]
Steffy: Oh, maybe that's him.
Wyatt: Hello, hello.
Flo: You know, we should've called first, but we just couldn't wait to see the new baby.
Wyatt: Oh, yeah.
Flo: Is it a bad time?
Steffy: No. No. Not at all. I--I'm sorry. I was just kind of hoping, uh, that you were my brother.
Justin: If I knew anything about Thomas, I'd tell you. Mostly to get you out of here.
Ridge: Justin, you're the last person to see him.
Justin: Yeah, says who?
Ridge: The last person I know of. And you have his phone.
Justin: Yeah, because he left it. What do you want me to say? People leave things sometimes.
Ridge: People don't-- we leave things. Old people leave things. Young people don't leave their phones. They can't live without their phones. You know that. You think Thomas would have made it all the way to the airport? No, he wouldn't have made it to the elevator.
Justin: You think? Yeah, I don't know. What do you want me to say? Maybe he was preoccupied. Maybe he was focused on his trip.
Ridge: Yeah, this--this trip that no one else knows about it. That trip, I think you're hiding something. Where's Thomas?
Hope: I don't understand why would Vinny...
Thomas: He thought he was helping me.
Thomas: Yeah. I mean, with Liam in jail out of the way then.
Hope: No, you can't be saying that he would--
Thomas: Yeah. Vinny ended his life thinking he could bring us together. And I had no idea. I mean, I--I blocked him from my phone. But then I reset my phone, all these texts and a video came through from that night on the side of the road. Look, it wasn't an accident. It was intentional. The police need to know. We need to go tell them, all right? So we have to get me out of here. And we need to set Liam free.
You never leave the house
without your luvs
[ Alarm buzzing ]
Baker: We need to talk.
Flo: I could just watch him sleep for hours.
Wyatt: That's right.
Steffy: I know. Sometimes I have to stop myself and remember that I need to get stuff done.
Wyatt: Uh, speaking of, if-- if you need to kick us out to take advantage of the nap time, we totally understand because I already got my post-worthy selfie. So I'm good to go.
Steffy: Oh, okay. I see how it is. You don't wanna us. You just wanna see the baby and then go.
Wyatt: No. You--you're fine and everything. You guys really are. But I mean, come on.
Steffy: Yeah, no, I know.
Finn: Yeah, we get it. We're--I mean, we're aware of that.
Wyatt: It's just this is great. You know, just, it feels normal celebrating your growing family and everything. It's just, uh, it's a nice distraction from what's going on with dad and Liam.
Steffy: Yeah, seriously.
Flo: And we mean it. Whenever you want us to go, we'll get out of here.
Wyatt: Yeah, totally.
Steffy: No, no, it's fine. I--I texted Thomas and I haven't heard back. I don't know why he's ghosting everyone.
Wyatt: Oh, don't bother.
Wyatt: Oh, I mean, Thomas doesn't have his phone.
Steffy: How do you know that?
Wyatt: Because Justin has it.
Steffy: Justin, Justin barber? Why would he have his phone?
Wyatt: I was over at Spencer, uh, earlier, and your dad came by and was asking Justin about the phone and things got pretty tense.
Steffy: Tense? Does my dad think something's wrong?
Wyatt: Apparently, yeah. And--and--and when I left, um, he was demanding that Justin tell him where your brother is.
Ridge: Thomas didn't mention anything about where he was going.
Justin: Out of town. He didn't say where. I didn't think to ask.
Ridge: Oh, and I'm-- I'm sorry, but I--I can't just take your word on anything related to travel because of our history, you know, just this little helicopter trip we took together.
Justin: Oh, well, if your son is swimming in some body of water somewhere, it's not because me.
Ridge: I'm--I'm not accusing you of anything. I'm just reminding you why I don't like you, why I don't trust you, why--why I will never trust you.
Justin: Cool. Fair enough. Are we done? Because I actually have someone waiting on me, and I really don't have time.
Ridge: You talked to him, right? You had a conversation with him? Can you remember anything? Just give me a clue, please?
Justin: Look, we--we talked business, not vacations, ridge.
Ridge: Yeah, I get it. You--you're the only one who knows about this trip he took.
Justin: Well, yeah, because he said if I had any questions I could follow up with him, but if he didn't get back to me right away, it was because he was traveling. That's all I know.
Ridge: And he'd talk to you after he gets back from his mystery trip, is that it? This trip he took that no one else knows about. Why do you do this? Let me ask-- let me ask you something, if your son-- it's Marcus, Marcus, right?
Justin: Yes, Marcus.
Ridge: Yeah. If--if Marcus just disappeared one day and no one--no one knew where he was. There's no phone call, no way to get in touch with him, you'd be a little concerned, too, no?
Justin: Yeah, man, of course. I just think you need to give it a little time, okay? Uh, maybe he's not surfacing on purpose. Uh, he--he will when he's ready.
Ridge: Why--how is he not ready? His sister just had a baby, she's waiting for him to call, and he's--he's not doing anything. I came over here. This is not easy for me. I'm asking you man to man, as a father. Please, help me.
Hope: You think they'll let Liam go?
Thomas: They have to. Vinny caused his own death.
Hope: Okay. Let's find this key.
Thomas: You know what, I really don't think there's time. I think you should just go.
Hope: I am not going to leave you here.
Thomas: Okay. If Justin catches you--
Hope: I don't even understand what Justin is doing. I mean, if he knows the truth, why isn't he going to the police?
Thomas: He just wants to control Spencer publications. It's a power grab.
Hope: Okay. We just let Liam and bill rot in prison just so he can in charge?
Thomas: That's why he knocked me out, stuck me in here.
Hope: Well, he can't keep you locked in here forever. I mean, what was Justin planning to do?
Thomas: Okay. I don't know. I don't think he's actually thought that through yet. Stop looking for the key, hope. Go to baker, tell him what you know. Tell him what Vinny did. We have to get Liam free.
Liam: I'm getting a funny feeling whatever you wanna talk about isn't good.
Baker: I'm not gonna lie, it isn't. You're being transferred.
Liam: Transferred to another cell?
Baker: To another facility.
Liam: Uh, and that's not good?
Baker: This cushy little lifestyle you've got here--
Liam: Cushy? You think this is cushy? That's fine.
Baker: It's not gonna be like this where you're going.
Steffy: So, my dad was confronting Justin?
Wyatt: Yeah. But I'm sorry, I didn't--I didn't mean to worry you.
Steffy: Yeah. A little late for that.
Finn: Yeah, Steffy's been pretty confused trying to figure out why Thomas has been ignoring everyone.
Steffy: So Justin just kept Thomas's phone? Sounds a little creepy.
Wyatt: Well, I mean, I guess Thomas was over at Spencer doing something for eye on fashion, and--and Justin said he left his phone behind.
Steffy: Then Justin didn't reach out to anybody to let them know that--
Wyatt: Look, I--I don't know all the details. Uh, I'm just--look, you don't have to be concerned, okay? Because your dad's over there, he's handling it right there.
Flo: Okay. No, may--maybe we should go, Wyatt.
Flo: And not upset the new parents anymore.
Flo: We really didn't wanna come over here and add any stress to your life.
Wyatt: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do that. I just--you just had a baby. You need to be focusing on that, okay? Everything's gonna be fine. Okay?
Wyatt: I'm--I'm positive Thomas is gonna show up soon.
Justin: I get that you're worried. I would be, too. I'm the wrong person to be questioning.
Ridge: Who do I ask but the person that saw him last?
Justin: What? There you are with the saw him last again. Why don't you ask around? Plenty of other people saw him after I did.
Ridge: You're right. I should go to the police. Have them deal with it.
Justin: Do whatever you feel is necessary. Police can ask me any questions since I don't know where he is. All you're gonna be doing is wasting people's time.
Ridge: If anything happens to my son because of something that you did, I will make you suffer in a way that you didn't think was possible.
Justin: As much as I'd like to stand here and hear your worthless comments and threats, I do have to be somewhere. Something that I need to take care of that's long overdue. You can let yourself out.
Thomas: Hope, you should really get out of here.
Hope: No. If I can find the key, then we could go to baker together.
Thomas: He probably has it on him, all right? I--I--look, you can't risk him finding you.
Hope: And I can't risk leaving you here either. He could move you to a different location and then I won't know where you are. And who knows what he would do next?
Thomas: Which is why you need to go now.
Thomas: Hope, this is what you want, you wanted proof of Liam's innocence, now you have it but it's not gonna matter if you don't get it to the police station, okay? There's a chance for Liam right now. Liam could finally have some freedom. But that's not gonna happen if Justin catches you. If Justin catches you, then Liam might never get out. I'm still wowed by what's next.
Finn: Do you wanna talk about it?
Steffy: Oh, I'm just trying to stay positive. Normally, I wouldn't be worried about Thomas. I get that he needs time for himself. But we just had a baby, and then I hear he leaves his phone at Spencer's and he--he doesn't care? Like, I don't know. Something just doesn't feel right. I just got way too much on my mind right now.
Finn: Yeah. Especially dealing with Liam in jail.
Steffy: Yeah, it's hard not to be concerned about him. We don't know what's gonna happen. He's Kelly's father.
Finn: No, I get it. Okay? And I feel for you, Stephanie and for Kelly. I hate that she's losing time with her dad.
Steffy: Kelly might lose even more than that.
Finn: I mean, he's got to convince the jury that he didn't intend to kill Vinny.
Steffy: But how? Like, we need evidence that he didn't do it, some kind of proof, something that's going to exonerate him. Because Liam just needs to come home. He needs to be with his daughters. Oh, baby.
Finn: Oh, come here. Come here.
Liam: Is my dad being transferred, too?
Baker: He's facing lesser charges so he'll be staying here.
Liam: Okay. Where am I going?
Baker: Someplace better equipped to handle prisoners who need maximum security.
Liam: [ Scoffs ] This is unreal. Uh, I'm innocent.
Baker: Until proven otherwise. I mean, that's what the trial is for.
Liam: Okay. All right. Okay, listen, should I have come forward sooner? Yes, absolutely, and I completely regret that. But I did not hit Vinny on purpose.
Baker: Yeah. Yeah. The man you hated, the man who had it out for you just happened to appear in front of your car.
Liam: I've--chief baker, uh, have you even asked yourself what Vinny was doing on that particular street on that particular night? Like what--what--what exactly is your theory? What do you think I did? Like drive halfway across town, kidnap Vinny, bring him back to my neighborhood of all places just so I could run him over? Like, what-- you're an investigator. Investigate what Vinny was doing there in the first place because it probably wasn't a coincidence.
Baker: I agree. It wasn't a coincidence.
Liam: Thank you.
Baker: When you hit somebody on purpose, it's called murder.
[ Alarm buzzing ]
Liam: It was an accident. It was!
Justin: Why I thought I could do this was wrong. I must've lost my mind. Thomas, we'll have to go to the police together. You could tell them the truth about your friend.
Justin: [ Sighs ]
[ Indistinct chatter ]
[ Alarm buzzing ]
Officer: Deputy chief, sorry to interrupt.
Thomas: We have evidence. It's information that you need to hear right away.
Baker: [ Sighs ] Forrester, Spencer, what are you do--
Hope: My husband is locked up for a crime that he did not commit.
Baker: It's okay. I got this. If you came to speak to Liam, you're too late.
Hope: Well, we're here to see you. What--what do you mean too late?
Baker: He's being transferred to another facility.
Thomas: Transferred, why? I mean, can you stop it?
Baker: It's a done deal.
Hope: How? He's innocent.
Baker: Yeah. I had that same conversation with Liam. He swore up and down it was just an accident.
Hope: Look, I know we've been telling that Liam didn't try to hit Vinny, but now we finally have the proof.
Thomas: Yes, proof that Liam was set up.
Baker: By who?
Thomas: He texted me that night, okay. Uh, I didn't get the texts immediately. But they said how sorry he was, and that he was doing it for me. And then there was a video, it's a video he took right before he was hit.
Thomas: It's a video that he took where he admits that he stepped in front of Liam's car on purpose.
Hope: It was intentional. Vinny framed Liam in order to put him behind bars. Vinny wasn't the victim of a crime that night. He was the instigator behind it. So Liam has to be released. We have the proof. Please you need to release Liam. You need to stop the transfer. Please just release Liam now.
