In her counseling session, Hope confirms that she and Liam made love, and she covered up for the thoughts going through her mind. Brooke listens as she stresses that she can't let this become a problem for her and Liam. When asked what the 'thoughts' were, Hope says they were mostly about herself. She clarifies that it's about the person she's become - her mom was a sex symbol, but she chose to be somebody else, and it feels like that's come back to haunt her. Brooke starts to speak, but Hope stops her, saying the two of them see sex very differently. The counselor tells Brooke that Hope should answer, and asks Hope how she views intimacy. Hope says it was something she had to 'get through', and that's not fair to Liam. The counselor points out that she went against her beliefs, and asks why. Hope says she felt like Steffy was controlling them. Hope and Stacy both realize that she didn't actually take control back. Brooke argues that she did. Brooke says maybe she just had her expectations too high. Hope tells the counselor about Brooke being raped, adding that she almost was too. She says she just has an issue with Liam still being married. Stacy says Hope has a lot of work to do, and gives her some anti-anxiety medication.
