Liam waits for Steffy, Hope extends an olive branch, and Brooke reaches out to Bill.
At Liam's place, he and Bill bond over being a couple of married guys. Liam tells Bill he's proud of him too, for being a father unlike his own. Liam warns they'll be coming to him and Katie for parenting advice. Bill's first bit of advice is to pay attention to his wife. Liam says he's got that handled.
At Forrester, Brooke and Eric hug. She says if there was anyone she could talk to about what's going on, it would be him. Eric says he's there for her no matter what. Brooke says he's good to her - even when she doesn't deserve it. Eric tells her she deserves everything he has to give. He says whatever is going on, she's Brooke Logan, and will persevere. Eric holds her while she cries and warns her not to bottle things up inside. Brooke says she'll tell him, but she needs to talk to somebody else first. Brooke calls Bill's office, but he's not there.
At the beach house, Steffy realizes Hope was there the whole time and heard her talking to Thomas. Hope tells her she's been avoiding the office. She doesn't need to see her every day knowing what she's taken from her. As they talk, Hope makes it clear that she's not dating Oliver. Steffy gets a call from Liam. She hesitates but Hope urges her to take it. Steffy tells Liam she'll be home for 'baby's first barbecue' soon. Thomas and Oliver appear. They tell Steffy there's a huge accident - she's not going anywhere. They exit, and Steffy tells Hope she'll probably head out anyway, though it seems crazy. Hope shrugs, "Not at all. You're going home to Liam." Steffy asks if she's going to be okay. Hope says the marriage is just about the baby, but then acknowledges that Liam loves Steffy. She concedes that she has hope for herself, and for them - one day she might even be happy for her. Hope tells her she wants the best for her, Liam, and their child. Steffy embraces her and strokes her hair before leaving. Hope sobs. Outside, Steffy spots the motorcycle and decides to ride it home through the traffic jam.
Liam hangs up from Steffy and tells Bill she'll be there soon. Bill is excited for him. "Being a dad; it doesn't get any better than that." After Bill leaves, Liam puts on tunes and prepares dinner for Steffy.
Bill returns to his office, looks at Katie and Will's photo and thinks of Brooke. He sees the message that she called and phones her.
On the motorcycle, Steffy nears the Malibu house when a car pulls out in front of her...
At home, Liam sits on the sofa to wait for Steffy. He hears something outside.
