Brooke tells Rick that Hope is about to land in Aspen. Rick and Brooke both express concern about Hopes decision to go with Liam to Aspen with the media situation the two of them are in. Rick worries if Hope can handle another reporter attack but then says that he doesnt give her enough credit. When he sees Brookes secretive face at those words, he asks her what shes hiding.
Brooke lets Rick know that Hope is seeing a psychiatrist and taking anti-anxiety pills. Rick asks why hes hearing about this so late and Brooke tells him Hope just wasnt willing to talk to anyone about it.

Justin tells Bill that its not too late to call things off. Bill asks him why he would do that and Justin says he leave this to fate. Bill smirks and says he didnt get this far in life by leaving things to fate and he says he certainly wont leave his sons future in fates hands either. He says he wants Liam to have the best life has to offer and that is not Hope Logan.
Justin says that Liam needs to figure that out for himself. Bill says that he will and hes just helping out. He says hes just speeding up the process of letting Liam see what Hope really is. When Justin tried to point out Hopes qualities, Bill firmly says that she is a crackpot and hes not going to let her drag Liam down with her.

Liam tells Hope the Spencer home is very private. Hope says she already feels safe here. Liam tells her to relax while shes here and Hope says shes going to do just that. Liam says then maybe they can go into town and theyll keep it low-key to avoid the press. Hope says that sounds great and kisses Liam.
Rick tells Brooke he still feels like he should be in Aspen for Hope himself.

Rick says hes not sure but with Bill in the mix, even from a distance he gets a bad feeling. Brooke looks nervous at her sons words.
Justin once again tells Bill to butt out and let Liam decide who he wants to be with. Bill insists that Liam deserves to be married to someone who is fit for him and says if Hope cant handle a little media pressure then she is not fit to be his spouse. He says hes giving Hope a chance to pass his test.
Justin says so hes doing a favor on her and Bill says exactly. Hes doing Hope a favor with this test. When he tells Justin to call him altruist Bill instead of Dollar Bill, Justin laughs.
Liam and Hope decide to go to the hot tub. Othello spies on Steffy as she talks to Ramona. Steffy says its her fault Liam is with Hope right now. She says she did everything wrong from when she manipulated Liam into marrying her but says that Liam and her are still going to get through this.
Steffy says she just has these moments though just like knowing that Liam is in their honeymoon house with Hope right now, she says it is killing her. Liam gets ready to head into the hot tub but pauses for a moment when he sees the bed in the bedroom. He remembers making love to Steffy there and pauses for a moment, looking nostalgic before he leaves.
Bill tries to get on with work but Justin continues to tell him to stay out of Liams life. Frustrated, Bill says that Liam is going to be taking over his empire one day and firmly says that he needs a wife that can handle some challenges. Bill says if Hope cant handle a little media pressure then how she is going to handle any real adversity. Justin says that Liam chose Hope but Bill insists that Liam doesnt see her for who she is.
Bill says that Liam rarely smiles when he is with Hope and that he smiled a lot more when he was with Steffy. He says that he wants a wife for Liam like Katie is for him. Justin says that he may be pushing his son too far but Bill simply says that maybe Hope will pass his test. He says either way though, he will be making his sons life happier.
Othello continues to watch as Ramona and Steffy talk. Steffy says that its bothering her how Liam is with Hope in the place they spent their wedding night. She sighs and says she cant dwell on that when Ramona looks at her sympathetically.
She says that Liam has to find his way back to her and in the meantime she has to get on with it. Ramona smiles as Steffy says it was nice they could catch up. Ramona reminds Steffy how Aspen was magical for her once and says that maybe it will be again. Steffy smiles as she says who knows, maybe Steffy will be flying home with her husband at that end of the week.
Liam and Hope spend time in the hot tub and share a kiss. Bill gets updates from Aspen through a phone call. They tell him that the reporters will be on Hope like crazy tomorrow.
