As Liam pours himself a cup of coffee, Steffy sneaks up on him. Liam asks her if she’d like some. Steffy smiles and says that coffee can wait but she can’t and proceeds to kiss him passionately.
Arriving at her office, Hope thanks a friend of hers for helping her. Curious, Brooke asks her what that was about and Hope tells her mother that a mob of reporters had swamped her outside but Cassie helped her out. Hope says that they all want to know why Liam married Steffy instead of her and then says that she guesses she should come with a better answer than telling them she is an idiot.
Eric asks Bridget is she said what he thought she said. Bridget smiles and says that Owen and she are moving in together as a family. Rick asks how that happened as Stephanie comes in and hugs Bridget saying hello, before hugging Owen. Stephanie asks them what’s going on and Bridget says that she just wanted to let everyone know what she was doing. She tells Stephanie that Owen and her are moving in together and they are going to live as a family with there son. Stephanie looks at Owen confused and asked him isn’t he married? Owen says not anymore as Jackie ended their marriage last night. Stephanie asks why and Owen tells her that Jackie said he belonged with Logan and Bridget and that she was insistent on it. Stephanie says “wow” then asks them how Jackie is. At that point Bridget and Owens’s smiles fade into concerned looks.
At her window, Jackie stands with a coffee mug while Nick comes down the stairs. When he says hello to his mother, Jackie tells him she made coffee. Nick mumbles that that’s a scary thought before he asks her how she is holding up. Jackie says that she didn’t sleep much last night and Nick says that he thought she wouldn’t. He asks her if she’s having second thoughts about her decision. Jackie says Owen belongs with Bridget and his son but she admits that she still loves him so much.
Stephanie astonishingly asks Owen if he means that Jackie walked away from their marriage just to give Logan a father. Bridget says that, that is incredible but that is Jackie. She says that the thought of Logan growing up without a father was killing Jackie and that she has always been protective of her and now she has given Logan the ultimate gift: his family.
Nick tells his mother that it is a heck of a sacrifice she is making. He says that he knows how much she loves Owen but Jackie says she will do what is best for him and what makes him happy. Nick says “nice” but then asks what about what’s best for her.
Bill asks Steffy and Liam if they are surviving out here at the beach house. Steffy says that she’d say yes. Bill smiles and Liam says he needs to take a shower. He asks his dad if he needs anything else but Bill says that’s it letting Liam go to shower. Bill says that it seems the marriage is agreeing with Steffy and that she’s never looked more beautiful. She tells him that he can thank his son for that. Bill says that he is very pleased about this for both Liam and her. Steffy thanks him for all his help but Bill tells her that she doesn’t have to thank him. He tells her to do him a favor though, and hold off on the grandkids as he is not ready to be a grandfather yet. Steffy laughs at that and Bill says that now that Hope is out of the picture, Liam and her can start building an incredible life together.
Steffy’s face falls and Bill noticing that asks her what that look is about. Steffy tells him that Hope isn’t exactly out of the picture and that Brooke suspects something.
Hope tells her mother that she should really get to work. Brooke says that she knows how difficult it was for Hope the other night. Hope says that she did her part and Brooke says that if she was just able to explain to Liam what happened, but Hope cuts her off asking why it matters now as Liam married Steffy. Brooke says that Liam doesn’t realize how hard Hope was trying to reach him. She says that Liam thinks that she doesn’t care about him anymore but she does, tremendously and that she really needs to tell him that. She says that she owes that to Liam and owes that to herself.
Bridget asks if Stephanie is having a hard time with this. Owen says that Stephanie and Jackie are really close. Bridget asks Stephanie if she knows that this was completely Jackie’s idea. Rick says that Stephanie isn’t holding that against her but that there is something else going on here. Bridget asks what that is and Stephanie says that she has to know she just wants what’s best for her and Owen and the baby. She says that it’s just that she can’t help but be concerned. She knew how much that marriage meant to Jackie and how much she was in love with Owen. Eric says that Jackie is going to need a friend right now and Stephanie says that she hopes Jackie knows she will be there for her if she wants her. Bridget says that they should get going and share the news with her mother. Owen says that just so they know, he is one hundred percent committed to Bridget and Logan. He says that Jackie did something incredible and selfless and that she will always be a part of their family. He adds in that he is grateful to be a part of theirs. Eric congratulates Owen.
Nick says that it is a beautiful day and then asks his mother if she’d like to go for a cruise to Catalina. Jackie sighs and says that they both have work to do but Nick says that she can’t be thinking about going to the office. Jackie sighs again and says that she is absolutely fine. She says that she has been preparing for this for a long, long time but Nick says that he thinks this is a little bit harder than she’s willing to admit right now. Jackie tells him that sacrifice is always hard but that it has its rewards. She says to seeing two, young, beautiful people raising their child together is just the way it should be. She says that Owen and her had their time together but she knew it would end one day. She then says that so, it’s him and her together again and then asks if that’s so bad because it’s not bad to her. Nick shrugs and takes a moment before he wraps his mother in a hug and says its not bad for him either.
Steffy says that Brooke knows something happened in Aspen and she doesn’t need to tell Bill what that means. She says that if Liam finds out that Hope was in Aspen looking for him and he prevented that then there could be trouble. Bill only says that it’s no big deal if Liam learns that Hope went to Aspen as she’s not the first woman who could have changed her mind about dumping a guy. Steffy still looks troubled so Bill tells her to just focus on Liam and that Liam is crazy about her. He says that Hope will go on about her life and so will Brooke. Liam comes out of the shower and sees his dad and says that he is still here. Bill says actually he’s not, and jokingly says that he is a figment of Liam’s imagination and will reappear at the office. He tells them he’ll see them later and leaves. Liam says so, it’s back to the real world as the wedding is over and asks Steffy is she’s going to work. Steffy says that she’d rather spend the day with him and goes to him. Liam says that she’s not quite ready for realty just yet and Steffy agrees, saying no and hugging him.
Hope tells her mother that she doesn’t want to talk about this anymore. Liam made a decision and that he made a choice marrying Steffy as no one forced him into it. Brooke protests by saying that there would have been no marriage if she had gotten to the top of that tower on time. Hope says that she doesn’t know that for sure and neither does she but Brooke says that somebody does know that. That was why Hope was stuck in the gondola and Steffy was on top of the mountain marrying Liam. Hope asks her mother if she honestly believes it was orchestrated. Brooke says that it’s just way too coincidental and that she really believes that Bill Spencer has his hands in this. Brooke says that they need answers and she is going to find them.
Hope says that she has a very hard time believing that there was some conspiracy keeping her from Liam. She says that she was there, she saw it happen and it wasn’t make-believe. Liam was up there on that mountain not waiting for her but for Steffy. Brooke says that she still thinks Liam should know she was in Aspen and why. Hope says that it’s her fault. She overreacted to seeing Liam and Steffy kiss, that was her big mistake and she gets that. She says that she know has to live with it. Brooke hugs her but Hope pulls away saying that she really does need to get work done so can they please just drop this. Brooke says okay and leaves Hope to her work.
Steffy, ready to leave, sighs and says that it’s going to be such a long day. Liam asks if she has a lot to do at work but Steffy says no, it’s just that she is going to be away from him. Liam says, so, their honeymoon isn’t over yet. Steffy smiles and says that it will never be over. She says that her life began in Aspen when he married her and she can’t even imagine her life without him. She says that she is so in love with him and they share a kiss.
Eric tells Stephanie that Jackie is lucky to have her as a friend. Stephanie says she feels the same way but she is embarrassed though as she has not really stayed in touch with her. Eric tells her she’s had a lot going on in her life and so has Jackie. Stephanie says that’s no excuse. If something had been going on in Jackie’s life she should have been there for her. Eric says that it seems as though Stephanie thinks that was what exactly Jackie wanted. Stephanie laughs and says that that’s because he’s a man and men are logical and women are all emotional. At that point Rick arrives and begins listening in on their conversation. Stephanie says that giving up someone that you love so much so that they can be with someone else, that is extraordinary. Eric agrees that that is extraordinary. He turns Stephanie to him and says that he does know something about emotion but Stephanie pulls away and says that she has to get ready for the day. She says excuse me and leaves Eric alone watching after her and looking upset.
Rick says that he’s going to head out and thanks his dad for letting him stay. Eric says that he is his son and can stay for as long as he wants. Rick sighs and says that he knows Stephanie and him had special plans the other night. He asks Eric how that went. Eric shrugs and says it was fine. Rick says that he knows something is wrong between Eric and Stephanie and he has felt it ever since he’s been back. He says that he guesses what he’s trying to say is that is there anything he can do to help.
Liam is looking at a photo of Hope and him when there is a knock at his door. Opening it, Liam is surprised to find Brooke. Brooke asks him if Steffy is here and Liam says that no, she is at work. Brooke says “good” and proceeds to come inside,. She says that there is a lot that she has to say to him and that he is going to hear her out.
Eric asks Rick what makes him think that there is something wrong between Stephanie and him. Rick says that he can feel the distance between them. Eric admits that cancer has changed how Stephanie feels about herself and Rick adds in that it has also changed how she feels about him. Eric says that a sickness like this can change people. Rick says he gets that but where does that leave Eric? Eric smiles and tells him not to worry about him but Rick says that of course he is worried about him. He says that Eric needs support and is Stephanie won’t then he will because he cares about him. Eric hugs his son and smiles.
Seeing Steffy at the doorway to her office, Hope says that she was just leaving. Steffy says that she can work somewhere else but Hope says the office is all hers and moves to go. Steffy tells her to wait and thanks her for not interfering in her party the other night. Hope says that she should have never gone out there. Steffy says it was Brooke who convinced her to do it and she can tell. Steffy says that she is glad Hope is accepting her marriage but that she has to get her mother to accept it too.
Liam tells Brooke that he knows why she is here. It’s because she’s upset that he married Steffy. Brooke says that it was pretty sudden. Liam says, yes well things didn’t work out between Hope and him and he knows that Brooke isn’t Steffy’s biggest “fan” but honestly this is none of her business. Brooke asks why things didn’t work out between Hope and him. Liam says that, that is between them. Brooke asks if he even talked to Hope and Liam says that Brooke knows that he hasn’t talked to Hope ever since she called him and ended the engagement. Brooke asks him if he didn’t want more of an explanation but Liam angrily says that Hope wouldn’t give him one. Brooke says that then he just ran off to Aspen with Steffy. Liam gets angrier and says that he tried to talk to Hope but she had nothing to say to him and that she wouldn’t even come see him and just left his ring on the fireplace mantle. Brooke accuses Liam of never having loved her daughter. This shocks and humiliates Liam, but Brooke points out that if he knew Hope, it would occur to him that she broke off their engagement for a good reason.
Liam thinks the reason was her career and he didn’t fit into her plans. Brooke again says that he never really loved her daughter, did he? Liam turns around, hurt and says that he more than loved Hope. He adored her and she meant more to him than his job and even his father. She was all that he wanted in life but he wasn’t what she wanted and that’s why she ended it. Brooke insists that’s not true and that Hope went to look for him in Aspen.
Brooke says that Hope arranged to meet him at the top of the mountain but she got stuck in the gondola and had to watch him marry Steffy. Brooke asks him to tell her the truth. Did he go on top of the mountain to marry Steffy or meet up with Hope? Liam breathes heavily in disbelief that Hope was there. He remembers getting the message and waiting, but she didn’t show up and now Brooke is saying that Hope was there? Brooke nods and shock fills Liam’s features.
