In Liam's office, Brooke demands to know if he will marry Hope. She grills him about tearing up the papers. He says it's not what he wanted - he didn't want to tell the world that it never happened. Brooke rages that Hope will be very upset when she finds out about this! Liam says more happened in Aspen. Brooke says she knows - Hope was overwhelmed and he abandoned her. Liam admits he's concerned about Hope's ability to cope with life. Brooke protests that Hope is on the right track - she's not addicted to pills. Liam says Hope sacrificed for him, and that's what Steffy was doing by signing the papers - he couldn't let that happen. He tells Brooke he wants to marry Hope and have kids with her - without drama. He asks Brooke to keep the secret of the annulment papers from Hope. Brooke sees that he wants to protect Hope, and talks about the wedding. They hug.

At Forrester, Stephanie tells Steffy it will all work out with Liam, and that's what she thinks he'll tell Brooke. Steffy thinks she should go over there, but Stephanie stops her, saying Brooke needs to be told by Liam. Once alone, Steffy flashes to Aspen.
