In the cabin, Thomas assures Hope that he’ll look after her, Beth and Douglas as Liam asked. Hope wails that none of this should be happening — Vinny should be alive and Liam should be home with her and the kids. “I can’t lose my husband.” Hope doesn’t want the kids to see how scared she is, and worries that Liam might actually be convicted. She frets about how to tell the children, or Douglas finding out at school. Hope can only make excuses for so long. Thomas knows he’s not Liam and can’t take his place, but assures her she doesn’t have to do this alone. “I’m here for you.”
