Reese Convinces Flo To Help Him
Flo feeds the baby at Reese’s apartment. Reese isn’t proud of what he’s done. You ripped her away from her family and put a dead baby in her mothers’ arms. Reese tries to defend his actions. She doesn’t know what those animals would do to his daughter. Couldn’t be worse than what he did to that poor mother, Flo retorts. She supposes Reese doesn’t think he’s not an animal, because he’s a doctor
Reese asks if Flo has ever felt trapped. He made a bad choice. There were no good ones. And Zoe isn’t more important that the little baby in her arms, except that Zoe is his daughter. But what done is done. The best he can do for that grieving mother is to find her baby a good home. He can’t do this without Flo. Flo agrees. Reese calls Taylor, then he leaves. His name can’t come into it since his daughter knows Taylor’s daughter. Zoe’s safety is in her hands now. Never has he trusted anyone like this. Flo wonders if he’s going to run off to London and leave her with the kid. Reese reminds her that his daughter’s life depends on what he does next.
Steffy Meets Beth
Taylor and Steffy arrive. Steffy says she’s impressed by what Flo is doing for her daughter. She’s not sure she’d have the strength. Flo isn’t sure its strength. Maybe its love Taylor chimes in. Flo agrees love does make you do thinks you never thought you would.
Steffy discusses her history and the baby’s father with Flo. Steffy tells Flo about herself and her life. She has an executive position in her family company but can work from home. She has a daughter also and Steffy explains wanting a sister for her, like she had growing up. The baby cries and Flo goes to get her.
Steffy is surprised Florence didn’t have any questions for her. Taylor reminds Steffy that she already met Taylor once before. Steffy is not adopting Florence but the baby.
Florence returns with the baby. She’s beautiful Steffy says. Beautiful little girl just like Kelly, Steffy says holding the baby. She’s been waiting for her, thinking about her and now here she is, Steffy says.
Liam Tells Wyatt About Steffy’s Adoption Plans
