Bill advises Liam, Hope and Brooke discuss babies, and Steffy returns to work.

Pam asks Steffy to bake with her tonight. Thomas saves Steffy by mentioning a meeting. Theresa tells Steffy she's sorry for her loss. Theresa reminds Steffy of the surf party. She starts tormenting herself about riding the bike. Dayzee and Marcus check in. Steffy talks about the motorcycle. Marcus tells her to look forward. Later, Steffy talks to Taylor and Thomas about feeling guilty.
At Spencer, Bill's impressed with Liam as an editor. He agrees that Liam's found his groove; at work and at home. Bill asks if Hope's come sniffing around. Liam admits she has. Bill warns him to be careful. He assures him there is more to his marriage than the pregnancy and urges him to have a busload of Spencer babies. Liam says Steffy wants to try again. Bill thinks it's a good thing for both of them. Liam says he wants to feel sure first. Bill growls that it's a little late to be questioning that. They bicker about the choice Steffy made and how Hope is different. Bill orders Liam not to blame Steffy for being who she is; a Spencer. Liam says Hope's still in his heart.
In her office, Hope flashes to Liam. Brooke enters. She says Steffy's there. Hope says she must be doing better. Brooke replies, "Pretending to..." Hope says she never wanted this. She tells Brooke it's possible Liam may have married Steffy without the pregnancy. She talks about how babies strengthen bonds, using Bill and Katie as an example. Brooke jumps at Bill's name. Hope says Liam wanted to take responsibility for his child, but that obligation's not there now. She muses that one day there might be another Logan/Spencer baby... Brooke says Hope was robbed so it's not insensitive to wonder. Hope mentions that Steffy wants to get pregnant again right away. Brooke is appalled. Hope thinks it's not what Liam wants.
Taylor finds Brooke in her office and asks her to encourage Hope to give Steffy and Liam space. Brooke accuses Taylor of pushing them to have another baby.
Hope enters Steffy's office and says she's sorry. Steffy wonders if she's sorry enough to stay away from her husband. She figures Hope's calculating how long to let them grieve before she makes her move. She says their loss is not an opening for her. "Respect my marriage."
