Zoe Can’t Tell Steffy the Truth

Steffy feeds Phoebe. Zoe notes that Phoebe fits right in. Steffy says she has to remind herself that she didn’t carry her or give birth to her. She’s her daughter, just as much as Kelly.
Zoe tells Steffy how happy she is for her. Steffy wonders what that has to do with Hope. Zoe wants to be there for both of them. Hope for her loss, and Steffy for her exciting new chapter.

Hope needs to tell Brooke something, but doesn’t know how. She feels guilty about the home Phoebe and Kelly could have if Liam and Steffy were together….
Brooke says there is nothing for her to feel guilty about. Her family with Liam isn’t happening. But he still has a family with Steffy. Those girls deserve to have a father. Brooke says she needs to focus on herself. She is taking nothing away from those girls. Brooke tells Hope to stop pushing Liam away. Her and Liam are the core of their family. Hope asks why she had to lose her child. It changed everything.

Zoe comes back. She didn’t tell. She couldn’t. Reese thanks her. Zoe wants to talk to Reese alone. She wonders if she’s just made a horrible mistake.
Zoe admits she went to see Steffy. She can’t believe Reese did something so horrible. He could have stopped gambling to keep her safe. Zoe says the right thing to do is so obvious; go to Hope, Steffy, Liam and the police and tell them what he did. But he’s her father, and that baby is in good hands. Steffy already adores her. To take her away now seems cruel. Zo hates every bit of what he did, but she loves him and she doesn’t want him to go to prison. So Zoe won’t say anything. She will keep his ugly secret. Reese thanks Zoe and hugs her.
