Hope is upset and disappointed that Steffy’s carrying Liam’s child again. Liam tells her how much he loves her and hopes that she’ll eventually be able to forgive him. He promises never to give up on her and their family. She says again that she doesn’t want to discuss it. It’s too much to process right now. She keeps yelling at him, sobbing, and he begs her not to give up on their family. She sinks to thee floor, crying, as Liam watches helplessly. He goes over and holds her. He doesn’t think there’s anything that they can’t overcome. He goes on and on about it and begs her for a chance. At Steffy’s house, Finn is still disappointed, too. He looks at the big picture of Steffy and Liam with disgust. Steffy gets a text from Amelia (who has Kelly). She apologizes to him again and wishes the baby were his. Finn tells her that he loves her too much to walk away. She urges him to “let it out.” He’s very angry at the results, and at himself, but not at her. Steffy tells him tearfully that he would have called the baby “John Finnegan, jr.” if it was a boy. She tells him that their love will get them through this. Finn thinks it’ll be hard for him and Hope to see Liam around all Steffy the time. Steffy thinks they can survive if he doesn’t give up on them. They hug.

At Forrester Creations, Thomas and Vinnie wait to hear about the paternity results. Vinnie thinks that Thomas hopes the baby will be Liam’s so that he’ll have a shot with Hope. After Thomas hears from Ridge, he worries about how Hope is doing. He agrees with Vinnie that he loves Hope, but he’s not going to do anything to interfere. At home, Brooke and Ridge also wait. He texts Steffy to see if there is any news. Steffy texts back, “Not Finn’s,” so Ridge tells Brooke. She’s upset. Bridget drops by for a visit. She’s in town for a medical conferences. Bridget can tell something is wrong. She guesses that Liam must be the father of Steffy’s baby, and they confirm it. Brooke wonders whether she should go over to see Hope or give her time. Bridget thinks Hope will act like she always does and put her own feelings aside for the good of her family. Ridge calls Thomas to give him the news.

Finn, Steffy Liam and Hope ask Doctor Campbell hopefully if Finn is the father, but she tells them that he isn’t. Hope leaves, upset. Steffy cries and tells Finn that she’s sorry. They go home. Finn offers to leave before Kelly comes home, but she doesn’t want him to leave. Finn is very disappointed because he’d already thought of the baby as his. He goes on and on about how great of a mother Steffy is to Kelly. He wanted the same bond with his child. He doesn’t know how he fits in to her life now. He thought that he’d broken her awful cycle with Liam and Hope. She cries more as she begs him not to give up on her. Liam follows Hope home. She’s very upset and says she doesn’t want to talk about it. She thinks it’s impossible for them to make a future now for their family. They talk about the past and how Liam screwed things up. Hope yells at him again for what he did. They argue. Liam keeps telling her that he’s not giving up.

At Forrester Creations, Thomas, Ridge and Brooke wonder whether they’ve gotten the paternity results back yet or not. Thomas tells them that he’s moving out on his own. He feels that he’s ready. Ridge and Brooke decide to go home, to be there for Hope if she needs them. Ridge and Brooke are glad not to argue about their kids any more. Vinnie drops by to say hi to Thomas. Thomas tells him about the paternity test. Vinnie thinks that if the baby turns out to be Liam’s, that would be good for Thomas. Thomas doesn’t want that. He wants Hope to be happy with Liam. Vinnie points out that none of the women Thomas has ever been with have come close to his feelings for Hope. He reminds Thomas that he’s there for him and there’s nothing he won’t do for him. He also adds “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

He needs to earn her trust back with his actions, and it’ll take time. He won’t ask for her forgiveness any more. He asks her for a chance to prove that he’s worth forgiveness.

Now Carter wants to end their relationship. Zoe can’t believe how she screwed all this up. She blames Paris for telling Ridge that she was after Zende.

Hope and Liam sit around at home, waiting to hear from Steffy about her paternity test results. Hope tries to stay upbeat while Liam keeps beating himself up and apologizing again. She admits that he hurt her and that she’s in pain. Meanwhile, Steffy and Finn visit her doctor to get the paternity test done. She is anxious, but Finn tells her that whatever happens, they’ll deal with it. Dr. Campbell arrives, so Steffy tells her that she wants the baby to be Finn’s. After some more chit-chat, the doctor explains the test to them (even though Steffy already had a paternity test done on Kelly). She just needs blood from Steffy and a cheek swab from Finn. Steffy wonders if there are any risks, so the doctor tells her that they should be able to get the results pretty easily. The doctor tells them that she’ll put a rush on it at the lab. Steffy was hoping they would know today, but the doctor says that’s not possible. She advises Steffy not to get stressed out, for her baby’s sake.

At Forrester, Zende assures Zoe (who’s wearing a clown-like outfit) that they’re okay. She doesn’t want their almost-indiscretion to affect their working relationship. She tells him that Ridge hearing them made her realize how much she loves Carter and doesn’t want to lose him. She’s certain that Ridge won’t be getting in the middle of her and Carter now. She boasts that she fixed this problem and will be married to Carter soon. She gets a text from Carter. Also at Forrester, Ridge tells Carter that Zoe was coming on to Zende. Carter refuses to believe it at first and thinks he’s joking. Ridge doesn’t think Zoe loves Carter like he loves her. He explains about seeing and hearing Zoe and Zende before. Carter is shocked and starts to cry. Zoe comes by, and he’s cold to her. He asks if he’s really the one that she wants to marry.

At the Forrester Mansion, Ridge berates Zoe for trying to get with Zende. He advises her to go tell Carter what’s going on. Zoe tries to deny it, but Ridge heard and saw them. He also blasts Zende for betraying Carter. He yells at them both, saying “Shame on you.” They try to deny that they were cheating on Carter, but Ridge knows better. He keeps yelling at them. Zoe claims that she was just scared about how fast she and Carter are moving. She insists that she loves Carter and doesn’t want to lose him. Ridge thinks she’s only saying that because Zende turned her down. Ridge plans to tell Carter about this, but Zoe asks him not to. Zende asks Ridge to let Zoe handle it. Zoe claims passionately that Carter is everything to her. Ridge leaves without telling them what he plans to do. Later, Paris goes to the Forrester mansion, where Zende is sitting, thinking as he stares the fire. With his shirt unbuttoned, of course! Zende tells her that Zoe left. He tries to be evasive about why Zoe was there, but Paris knows what’s going on. Zende protests that he would never hurt Carter, but Paris knows that Zoe has a thing for him, and she’s playing Carter. She accuses Zende of not doing anything to stop it. He assures her that nothing happened with Zoe. Paris thinks that Zoe is just freaking out because of being engaged and is self-sabotaging like she usually does. He tells her that he’s told Zoe that they can’t be together. She thinks that Carter deserves better, and he agrees. She asks him honestly what he wants. He replies that he wants to get to know her better.

Carter chats with Paris at Forrester Creations about his impending wedding. Paris wants to tell Carter the truth about Zoe, but Donna arrives, looking for Zoe. Carter tells Paris that nothing she can tell him about Zoe will shock him. Donna leaves. Carter doesn’t want to hear what Paris has to say. He’s expecting a call, so she leaves. Donna shows some photos of Zoe to Ridge at the office. He’s not in a good mood, which she can tell. He asks if she’s seen Carter, so she tells him that he was there earlier with a conference call. She tells him that Carter has a big night planned with Zoe to pick a wedding date. Carter, still at Forrester, finds Zoe, who finally texted him back. She tells him that they should pick a wedding date right away. He’s surprised at her sudden about-face. She mentions that the men in her life usually let her down, but he insists that he’s not like that and will never let her down. Meanwhile, Ridge walks up and eavesdrop on them. She tells him that he’s the man for her. She pours out her feelings and explains why she was scared. They both say, “I love you.” She promises that she’ll be a loving and devoted wife like he deserves.

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.

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.
