Finn turns up at the cabin, but Hope informs him that Liam’s with Steffy and Kelly. He actually stopped by to speak with her, alone, about Thomas. Hope admits she needed to be certain that Thomas has moved past his obsession with her. “And now you are?” Finn asks. Hope knows Liam feels differently and thinks back to hearing Thomas say, “This could be our family.” Finn brings her back to the present and Hope assures him Thomas has made strides. But Finn wonders if she thinks it’s at all possible that Thomas is still obsessed with her. Hope briefly checks on the kids then returns to Finn, who, being in a relationship with Steffy, has an interest in Thomas’ mental health. He relays how Thomas has been down on Liam. Hope knows Thomas and Liam have a history but is adamant that Thomas is getting better. She urges Finn to talk to Thomas at get the answers he’s looking for. After Finn leaves, Hope texts Liam to see when he’s coming home.

From the apartment doorway, Liam’s in shock at the sight of Thomas and Hope kissing. He closes the door and rushes away unseen, as inside, Thomas savors his kiss with Hope — then realizes she’s the mannequin. He stumbles backwards and screams, “Oh, God, no!” Wiping his mouth, he can’t believe he kissed a doll, and screams at the mannequin, “Stay away from me!” Thomas knows Hope doesn’t want him, but the mannequin insists Hope does and urges him to go kiss her. He calls the doll evil, sits on the floor and cries, “What’s happening?” He argues with the mannequin, who thinks Thomas is imagining things. He laughs hysterically, “I’m imagining things. I’m talking to a mannequin.” Thomas doesn’t want Hope to be frightened of him. The mannequin persists that Thomas has waited long enough… tonight is the night. “Get Hope.” Finn knocks at the door and brings Thomas back to reality. Thomas quickly hides the mannequin and lets Finn in. He says it’s a bad time, but Finn can see that he has a reason to be concerned about Thomas.

He saw Hope — his wife! — in Thomas’ arms. Liam breaks down and stuns Steffy by saying, “She was kissing him.”
