Liam shows Liam the gloves he found. He says he saw the proposal and fell and hit his head…just like before with Quinn. He went weeks without any memory. Its happening again. But he sees it all now.
Hope thinks he’s imagining it. But Liam can see it all, and he was late for dinner and the gloves were in his car. He pulled the trigger. Hope comforts a distressed Liam. He did this, he tells Hope. He tried to kill his own father.
What have I done, Who am I? Liam wonders. Hope says he has been through a series of devastating events but that does not mean he’s a murdered.
Liam says it does. He holds the world to the highest standard, but he’s afraid. He’s the dangerous one. Liam can’t hide from this. He did it. And he’s guilty.
Liam goes to call the police to get Ridge out of jail. Hope knocks the phone out of Liam’s hand. Liam wonders what happened to him to make him do this. If he did this, it isn’t his fault. Bill drove him to this. She can’t lose him, Hope says, she loves him.
Liam wonders how anyone can love him if he hates himself. Hope says she does. She loves him and always will.
Liam says the only way to get Ridge out of jail is to confess. He has to do the right thing and come clean. She doesn’t want to live the rest of her life without him.
