Shauna lets it slip that it’s Flo’s birthday and they all want to celebrate. Flo protests – the job is enough. Hope and Brooke chime in about the Logan women sticking together. Hope adds, “We love you and we’re grateful to have you as part of our lives.” Flo loves them too but isn’t sure she deserves this. Hope insists she deserves all of this and more.

In Brooke’s house, Thomas leaves Steffy a voicemail and asks her to send a picture of her and the girls with Liam. Douglas joins his father and wants to draw. Thomas suggests they make a drawing for Hope…like a heart. When he’s done, Douglas says he hopes it makes Hope happy. They recall when Douglas asked Hope to be his mother. Thomas tells the boy it could happen if they treat her right. He encourages his son to let Hope know he loves her. After Douglas goes to the kitchen, Thomas texts Steffy a reminder about sending a photo, then calls Pam to find out if Hope is heading home. Later, Hope arrives, and Thomas appears, shirtless. Hope explains she’s in a good mood because Flo accepted the job, then spots Douglas’ heart drawing. Thomas tells her how special she is to his son – she puts children first. Suddenly, the photo of Steffy, Liam and the girls arrives on his phone. He shows Hope and says her instincts were right – Paris is where Liam needed to be. Thomas thinks they could fall for one another again since Douglas needs a mom, and she can let Liam go. Thomas kisses her and she pulls away.
