Flo explains to her mother the real situation between Liam, Hope, Thomas and Steffy. Thomas wants Liam to go with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and he wants Hope to be with him. None of this would happen if she tells them the truth. This secret is poisoning Hope and Liam’s life.

When he married her he promised he would be there with her forever. He can’t believe that she’s thinking differently. Liam’s doing his best to make Hope understand that she doesn’t have to put another child’s interests before their marriage. For Hope it’s time to put the child first. She knows that a part of him loves Steffy and the girls. If she was staying with him, it was because of his love for her, but she has to stop their marriage and let him go.
Liam doesn’t know what to believe. He can’t let her do that. The only thing that will take Hope’s pain away is to give Kelly, Phoebe and Douglas everything they wanted. She thinks she has to do what’s the best for their family. She falls in love with Douglas and the idea of being a maternal figure in his life. She finally sees a way to get over her grief. She begs Liam to to go to Steffy and the girls and to let her go with Douglas, Liam’s asking her to give them one more night together to watch a movie, have a good dinner and be together. Hope agrees. They are hugging together.
