At the Malibu house, Steffy listens as Liam tells Hope he can't understand why they can't work this out - he loves her. Hope says he loves Steffy too, which isn't okay with her. Hope tells Liam when he's hurting, his instinct is to go to Steffy, not her. This is the way it's meant to be. Thomas re-enters. Hope tells Liam he stabbed her in the heart and says goodbye. Liam stands outside and watches them go. Steffy joins him, and notices a giant heart painted on the house with a sword through it! Liam says Hope hates him. Steffy hugs him. Back inside, they debate whether he did anything wrong. Steffy says time will take care of everything.

Rick tells him it's for the best and hangs up. Caroline appears. They discuss Hope. Rick talks about the way Thomas latched onto her the last time she broke up with Liam. Rick can't help but think this is how it's meant to be. He tells Caroline he needs someone good in his life especially since he'll be running Forrester one day.
