In Forrester Creations’ design office, Vinny needs to know if Zoe’s moving out so asks Thomas if the engagement is real. Thomas reminds him of the rock he put on her finger. Vinny knows he’s manipulating Zoe and Douglas to get Hope back. Thomas admits that’s the plan – it’s the only way to get Hope to marry him instead. Vinny complains he’s putting the weight of his future on the shoulders of his child. Thomas insists Douglas will be fine despite the bumps along the way. Vinny’s undecided whether he’s a genius or a psycho. Thomas notes that Douglas gets panicky when he refers to Zoe as ‘Mommy’. Vinny guesses he’ll keep saying it. Thomas declares that Douglas will bring Hope back to them…permanently. Vinny thinks there’s a good chance his plan won’t come to fruition and points out he’s using everybody. “What kind of a father are you?” Thomas, angry, warns Vinny not to question his love for his son. Vinny worries about Douglas handling the pressure. Thomas decides he’s right – he needs to move things along.
