Here they are in front of some of the most powerful architecture in the world Bill starts but what drives this city is its unique soul. Deep peaceful, calm and good. Just like the soul that lives inside his son. Liam your character is as strong as any steel, his wisdom soars above the tallest skyscrapers and his grace is as pure as the finest architecture.

Sasha and Nicole have a heart to heart. Sasha tells her bestie and secret sister that she doesn’t have to be perfect. Sasha loves her anyway. Later Nicole also talks to Zende. She notes that be began to pull back from their relationship the moment she started to show; as if his mind was already closed to her pregnancy and he wasn’t willing to see how things played out with her surrogate pregnancy. What Nicole doesn’t realize is that Zende had plenty advice from Carter that he shouldn’t have to put up with a girlfriend who is pregnant with another man’s child even if it was a surrogate pregnancy. Then there was Sasha…
Meanwhile Maya and Rick feel bad about Nicole losing her relationship with Zende because she agreed to carry a baby for them as a surrogate (and got pregnant on the first try!). Maya thinks that if Zende could just get over his aversion to Nicole being pregnant he could go back to Nicole.
Thomas is timid as he asks Caroline if he can hold the baby that he thinks of as his baby brother. But Thomas is a lot more invested in this baby than the baby’s other older sibling Steffy. Why could that be? Is there a parental connection there that Thomas isn’t even aware of. He certainly is drawn to the youngest member of the Forrester family.
Clearly Caroline is having second thoughts about keeping Thomas in the dark about him being the father of her child. But Ridge is adamant that no one will ever know. This is what they have set up and this is how its going to be he gently but firmly tells his young wife.

Caroline talks to her baby about his future at Forrester as Thomas arrives. He asks if he can hold his little brother. He hasn’t done it much. Caroline tells him all he has to do is support his little head and hands Douglas over. She suggests he relax…

Ridge returns home to see Thomas holding Douglas. Caroline and Ridge share a look behind Thomas’ back.
Ridge wants to hold his son for a minute. Thomas says one day he’ll have this; an amazing life and a wonderful child. He thanks them for letting him share it with him. Thomas leaves.
Ridge asks what Caroline’s look was. It was her freaking out she admits. Ridge says Thomas is going to be here. He and the baby will have a relationship she can’t do that. Caroline says that Thomas already loves him so much. If she tells Thomas they lose each other Ridge tells Caroline. This is what they set up. Not Thomas, not anyone will ever know. This is our boy, Ridge tells Caroline who still looks unsure.
Maya Baby Shops

Zende arrives. He’s been looking for Nicole. Sasha leaves so they can talk. She tells Nicole she loves her and never to forget that. Zende is sorry that he hurt Nicole. Nicole asks if he even tried. As soon as she started showing he pulled back like his mind was already closed to it.
She had this one chance to do something wonderful for her sister and she needed to do that regardless what it cost her. She thought he understood that.
Zende and Maya
Zende finds Maya instead of Nicole. Maya wants to talk. Zende is happy that Nicole is able to make their family happen, but its not for him. Maya is disappointed. Nicole thought he supported her.
