Hope and Thomas go back to the cottage to talk more privately. She confirms that he heard right: Liam cheated on her with Steffy, and she might be pregnant with his child. Thomas can’t believe it and is supportive to Hope. He tells her that he saw Finn and Steffy discussing something intense at work; he guesses that this is what they were talking about. Hope is filled with doubts now about Liam. Hope is angry and hurt that Liam destroyed their family. Thomas is having trouble dealing with all of the information and feels bad for Hope. She doesn’t want to hear that he was right – that Liam would let her down and always go back to Steffy. Thomas tells her that he’s not saying that. He wishes that Liam had come in and confronted him and the mannequin. Thomas feels like it’s his fault, but he cares about Hope. He knows Liam made a terrible mistake and he was an idiot. He tells her that Liam loves her and doesn’t want to lose her or their family. He advises her to take it one step at a time, with Liam. He suggests that she should give Liam another chance. Meanwhile, Liam works at Spencer, but he’s in a foul mood. Wyatt and Flo walk in and find him yelling at someone over the phone. Flo leaves them alone, so Liam tells Wyatt what happened. Liam is so distraught that he’s eating real roast beef and cheese instead of his usual vegetarian food (LOL!). Wyatt can’t believe it. Liam beats himself up about what he’s done.

Finn wants to know if Steffy wants him- or Liam – to be the father of her baby. She tells him that she doesn’t want to repeat her mother’s mistakes (with regard to Liam). She keeps apologizing for cheating on him with Liam and tells him how much she loves him and wants to be with him. She lists many of the reasons that she loves him. She tells Finn that she hopes he’s the father. She promises to be honest from now on, and he agrees. She appreciates that he says he’ll be there for her, regardless of who the father is. She asks him if he wants to commit to her like she wants with him. He doesn’t reply, so she tells him that he can leave if he wants. Finn goes to the door, like he’s going to leave, but then he closes it. He tells her that he hasn’t allowed himself to open up to anyone because he’s been so immersed in his career, till her. He believes that she won’t betray him again and he loves her. He wants a family with her. She cries with happiness as he talks about building a life with her.

Recap written by Suzanne

In their cottage, Liam continues to beg Hope for forgiveness as she sits on the couch and cries. He keeps telling her how much he loves her and their kids. Hope doesn’t know how to forgive him. She tells him that if it was anyone else, she could have handled it, but since it was Steffy, it feels like a knife. He goes back to trying to convince her to forgive him. He has to believe that she’ll forgive him because she’s too important to him. She believes that he’s sorry and loves her, but she knows that he loves Steffy, too. She yells at him for just running to Steffy without even taking a second to find out if what he saw was true. She asks if he really wants Steffy. He objects, saying that he only wants her. She thinks that he must really miss Steffy and want to be with her, since he made love to her. He keeps asking her for a chance to prove that he’s committed to her. Hope says that at least he and Steffy were honest, and she does love him. She says it’ll take time for them to move past this, but she loves their family. She promises to try to forgive him, for their children. He thanks her profusely. She tells him that it can’t happen again and wonders why he’s telling her now. He tells her that there’s one other thing she needs to know. They may not be able to forget about that night. She demands to know what he’s talking about. Meanwhile, Steffy finishes telling Finn about how she and Liam slept together. He’s shocked and angry. He tells her that doesn’t know what to say, especially with the big photo of her and Liam staring down at him. Steffy tells him this wouldn’t have happened if they weren’t drinking. He wonders if the photo isn’t more than just showing Kelly that her parents are happy. He loves her and believes that she loves him, too. Finn tries to put himself in Liam’s place. He would have confronted Thomas and told him to take his hands off his wife, not bolted and run to Steffy. He wonders what this all means for their relationship and if they have a future. Steffy tells him that while she’ll always care for Liam, she wants him. She doesn’t want to lose him and asks him if he can forgive her.

Paris and Donna are excited that she accepted Ridge’s job offer. Zoe walks in, so Donna tells her the big news. Zoe is not happy. Zoe wants to know why Paris would deliberately go against her. That wasn’t Paris’ intention. She tells Zoe that the offer was just too good to turn down, and she will be working in a completely separate division. Zoe thinks she never intended to turn it down. Zoe guesses that Zende changed her mind. Paris admits it was but doesn’t know why Zoe is reacting this way. (Perhaps it’s the hideous polka-dotted mini-dress that Zoe is wearing) Paris tells her how persuasive Zende was. She speaks about him in glowing terms. Zoe reminds her that Zende just came off a divorce and she warned her about him. Paris tells her that she and Zende kissed.

Recap written by Suzanne

At Forrester, Hope asks Steffy to use her “motherly intuition” to tell whether her baby is Finn’s or Liam’s. Steffy tells her that she won’t know until she gets a paternity test. She hopes it’s Finn’s because she loves him. Hope doesn’t believe her. She tells Steffy to be honest: she’s always loved Liam. Her relationship with Finn is fairly new. Steffy tells her that what happened with Liam wasn’t planned, and she’s so sorry that it caused Hope pain. She doesn’t want to destroy her marriage, nor does she want to lose her future with Finn. She swears that’s the truth. Hope walks out in a huff. At Steffy’s place, Finn tells Liam that if Steffy’s carrying his baby, that his access to Steffy and her house will be more limited. He warns him not to cause Steffy any more pain. Liam looks pained. Liam lets him know that he intends to fix his marriage to Hope, so Finn doesn’t have anything to worry about. Finn thinks that Liam is putting on an act. He gives Liam a hard time. Liam tells him that there’s nothing he can do to change the past. Liam tells him repeatedly that he loves his wife, and he’ll regret what he did forever. Later, Finn drops by Steffy’s office. She tells him that she was just thinking about him. They ask each other how they’re feeling. He tells her that he just saw Liam. He tells him about how he yelled at Liam and his sense of entitlement. He blames Liam for all of their situation and if her baby is Finn’s, than he wants Liam to stay away. She tells him that she was as much to blame as Liam. He thinks that Liam purposely teases her with the possibility of them having a future again. She tells him that she’s so sorry about what happened and that she hopes they can still build a future together. She says that her feelings for him are stronger than ever. She loves him and wants the baby to be his. Meanwhile, Hope goes to Brooke’s house, but Brooke is not around. Hope looks through the mail that’s arrived and then looks at the family photos, including one of her and Liam. She flashes back to Liam apologizing and then telling her that Steffy is pregnant. Liam walks in through the side door. Donna told him that she left the office to go home. He was hoping they could talk. She says there’s nothing to talk about until they get Steffy’s paternity results. She can’t believe they’re here again, with Steffy. He says that he’s sorry again for the way he hurt her. He can see the pain in her eyes, and it’s killing him. He thinks she should want him to suffer, but she doesn’t. She doesn’t want any of what’s happening. She suggests that reconciling isn’t an option if he’s the father of Steffy’s baby. He tells her that he was looking around the cabin, and he loves that they live there and have the messy life there with the kids. He thinks about their precious memories and family. He says that he threw it away in one moment and that he’s never been more wrong in his life because he lost faith in their love. Neither of them knows why he didn’t know that she would never kiss Thomas. He blew them up over a mannequin. He plans to keep saying he’s sorry until she believes it. He hates what he’s done to both her and Steffy. He keeps pouring it on thick about how much he loves her and begging her forgiveness, even though he knows it’s unfair.

In his office, Bill is changing his shirt after working out in his gym when Wyatt barges in without knocking. Behind him is Summer (from Y&R, who’s visiting). Wyatt introduces them as Bill finishes dressing. He’s intrigued by the proposal. She tells him Lauren says hi, and he says hi back as well as hi to her parents. He knows them from when he was “passing through Genoa City.” Ha ha! Bill has great respect for her parents and Victor Newman. Wyatt and Bill thinks the numbers on their deal will work, and Summer agrees. Bill tells her that it was great working with her. She jokes that he’s not scary at all. Bill tells her that she needs to keep that to herself so that he can maintain his reputation. She asks if he’ll be stopping by Genoa City any time soon. He has no plans to, but he adds, “You never know.” Bill rushes off for a meeting. He insults what Wyatt’s wearing as he leaves. Summer says she forgot how much she loves L.A. She brings up Sally Spectra and mentions that she’s interesting. Wyatt agrees. She asks him questions about Sally. He just says that Sally is complicated. She wants to know why Sally left a major hub for fashion to move to Genoa City. Flo walks up and eavesdrops on their conversation about Sally. Wyatt works hard not to bad-mouth Sally. He has to leave for a meeting, so Summer asks if she can stay to make a call. He says that’s fine and tells her that he’s really excited to work with her and Jabot. After he leaves, Flo walks in. She wonders why Summer is asking about Sally and introduces herself as Wyatt’s girlfriend. Summer tells her that she’s a new business associate of Wyatt’s and asks if she knows Sally. Flo says that she sure does. She offers to answer any questions about Sally. Summer says she’s good, but Flo tells her that whatever she knows, it’s probably just scratched the surface because there’s always more with Sally.
