Brooke drops in on Hope and says she hoped to see her granddaughter. Hope tells her that Liam took Beth out for a little while. Brooke tells Hope that Dr. Buckingham has been sentenced and while it has been kept out of the news she thinks it will be released now that he is coming back to the States. Carter has been keeping her abreast. Thomas is about to open the door to Vinny’s place when Zoe walks up behind and he turns around. She quips that life has been rough lately with her no job, almost broke and her dad sentenced to the max today. But doesn’t Thomas have another mansion to crash in. Guess they all have their burdens. She says her father deserved punishment and justice done but she just wishes she had not ever been a part of it. She had to go see him. Hope says that Reese is in prison and that is all that matters to her. She cannot justify what Flo did either, donating a kidney or not. Steffy tells Liam that she knows he was not just in the neighborhood and Hope will not believe that either. He says now that the dust has settled they will work on being more a blended family. Steffy says she has not heard at all from Hope. Liam says Hope did nothing wrong with taking Beth home with them when they knew Phoebe was Beth and if he is making a mistake today just tell him. She says no. He says he promises he will try to keep Steffy in Beth’s life as much as he can.

Thomas tells Zoe that he should not be here. He is a Forrester and they are Logan’s and he will not take this and if Hope thinks so she can think again. He also mentions that Zoe is the only one that has shown him any loyalty. Her boyfriend, Xander, could not wait to rat him out. He tells her that there is a revolution in his family. He has a list on the wall, of those at Forrester – in or out. He tells Zoe she does not want to be on the out side. Brooke tells Hope that she and Liam make wonderful parents but she wonders if they have made a commitment together. Hope laughs if her mother is asking if Liam has proposed. She says she knows Liam is committed to her no matter what. Steffy tells Liam that she understands now that Hope had the right to take Beth home. But one minute he was looking at her birth certificate and the next she was ripped from her arms. She just wishes Hope could have been more generous with her and eased into it. He says he wishes he could be with her more. Kelly and Beth are sisters and he is their dad. She looks at the fantasy photo on the wall and asks if it is possible. They could have been a beautiful family and he is saying they still are a family. Could they do this again? Saying not a word, he has a very conflicted look on his face.
