Does Hope Want Liam Back?
Please tell me you are not taking advantage of the situation, Steffy asks Hope. Hope says Liam asked to see her its as simple as that. And there is a child involved. Her child shouldn’t suffer for Steffy’s mistake, Hope says.
Hope asks about Bill. Steffy admits Bill doesn’t think it was a mistake. He wants them to run off together. Hope asks if that is what Steffy wants to do. Steffy tells her emphatically that she wants her husband back. Then she asks Hope if she’s planning to take Liam away from her. Does she want Liam back, Steffy asks.
Hope wanted a life with Liam for so long, but Hope couldn’t live with herself if she took advantage of this situation. In a few months she will have a baby, and hopefully Liam too. Hope tells her to stay away from Bill. She supports Steffy, her marriage and her child. If it weren’t for the baby, she wouldn’t be, Hope admits. Don’t mess up, Hope tells Steffy.
Steffy asks Hope to give Liam a valentine from his wife. Hope takes it and heads out to meet Liam. As she leaves, Steffy tells Hope she’s glad she’s home.
Hope Plays Matchmaker for Steffy
Hope arrives at Liam’s hotel room and learns that Ridge came over to defend Steffy. Hope asks if he’s okay. Liam says he’s lost so much and he has a baby on the way, and all the joy is gone. Hope suggests talking to someone professionally. He’d rather not talk to a stranger, if a friend is available. Someone who’s values he admires and advice he can trust. Does she understand what he’s saying, Liam asks.
She’s glad he still feels like he can turn to her. She feels the same way about him. She tried forgetting him, but it didn’t work. It turns out there is no other Liam. It feels good they can still call each other friends. Liam agrees not a lot of people can say that.
It kills Hope to see him this unhappy. He can always turn to her, Hope tells Liam.
Hope says Steffy isn’t giving up on him, and they have a family now. Hope admits Steffy asked her about her intentions with Liam. Hope admits part of her would like to try picking up where they left off, but that can’t happen now. Because of the baby, Liam asks. Hope says its one of many reasons.
