Liam returns to his house and tells Taylor, Steffy, and Brooke that Hope's gone. Brooke leaves. Taylor tells Liam he made the right choice and goes. Liam strokes Steffy's face. He asks Steffy if she's happy and puts his hand on her tummy. He grins. "We're going to have a baby!" Steffy tells him he'll be an amazing father, but he doesn't have to stay with her - if he wants Hope, he should go be with her. Liam says he belongs with her and the baby. She needs him to be sure. He quickly says he is and hugs her. Steffy says it's going to be so good.

Brooke finds Hope upset in the car and embraces her. Hope says Liam's staying with Steffy - there was really no other choice for him. Brooke thinks he can be active in the child's life and be with Hope. Hope says he won't turn his back on his child...or Steffy. Hope muses that it shouldn't have been this way - she should have been having his children. Brooke says a lot's come between her and Liam... They debate if this was what Liam wanted. Hope says it doesn't matter now. Brooke knows about the pain she feels - she's been there. Hope says her support means everything. She tells Brooke this is Steffy's house now and she can't be there anymore.

Bill is thinking about Brooke in his office when Taylor arrives. She wants to be the first to congratulate him. "We're going to be grandparents!" Bill says it's the best news since Katie came home. Taylor tells Bill about the 'close call' thanks to Brooke flying in the priest and re-creating Italy. Bill expresses empathy for Hope for getting stunned twice in one day. Taylor notices. Bill says he can spare some empathy for her now that she's out of the picture. Taylor muses that Liam's been known to fluctuate. Bill isn't concerned. They talk about babies. Bill says this must have been a blow for Brooke. He thanks 'Grandma' for the news. Taylor leaves.

Bill finds Brooke in her cabin. He says Taylor told her about the pregnancy. She doesn't want to hear him gloat. He says he came because he thought she could use a friend. He states that Liam made the right decision, but he knows it hurts her what Hope lost. They embrace.

At home, Hope applies make-up but starts crying.
