Wednesday, August 3, 2022: Today on The Bold and the Beautiful, Hope brings Deacon to the office to see her line, Steffy makes a vow to Finn, and Ridge marvels at a betrayal.

At Forrester Creations, Brooke updates Katie on the latest about Steffy and Finn by phone. She’s sure to point out that Bill did a good thing. As she disconnects, Hope walks in with Deacon. Brooke asks, “Deacon… what are you doing here?” Deacon explains that Hope asked her to come by. Hope wanted to show her dad the new designs for Hope for the Future. She didn’t know her mother was still there, and had assured Deacon that Ridge is in Monaco. Deacon reflects on how happy Ridge and Taylor must be for Steffy and Finn. Brooke nods and sighs.
In Monaco, Kelly asks her mommy why she’s crying. Steffy explains they’re happy tears. The little girl is happy too. Taylor interjects that her heart is bursting and snaps photos of the little family until Ridge suggests they give them some space. Taylor welcomes Finn home and Ridge says he’ll remember this moment forever. Steffy walks over to hug her parents as they express their love.
In their suite, Taylor does a little happy dance of joy and Ridge deadpans, “I don’t even know what that is.” Taylor is overjoyed and they keep joking until Taylor shows him the photos of their daughter with her family… smiling again. Taylor decides she’ll post it so people can see that Finn is alive and Steffy and Finn are together again, “And our girl is okay.”

In the other suite, Finn excites Kelly by suggesting a trip down to the beach and then tells her he’s sorry for being away all that time. Steffy states he has nothing to be sorry about; they’re just happy to have him back. Finn quips that they won’t get rid of him again. This is where he wants to be for the rest of his life. Steffy gushes, “We love you,” and Kelly adds, with arms spread wide, “This big!”
At Forrester, Deacon tells Hope her line is fantastic. She’s glad he likes it. Deacon wonders if his daughter’s ever thought about modeling as a full-time career. Brooke calls them over to see Taylor’s photo of Steffy and her family and squeals, “They’re so happy you can feel it through the screen.” She muses, “Destiny 2.0 maybe?” Hope teases that title may be reserved for her and Liam. Brooke apologizes. Hope was just kidding and gushes, “This is such an amazing day.” She wants to capture it forever and says, “Let’s take a photo!” The three of them pose for a selfie.
Brooke goes on about how happy she is for Ridge too as Hope posts her photo on social media and captions it, “Mom & Dad, together.”
In Monaco, Ridge notes that Taylor’s phone is blowing up. It’s all the likes and comments about Steffy and Finn. Ridge thinks the world should celebrate them for what they were put through. Taylor doesn’t want to think about Sheila, she’d rather focus on the good stuff. Ridge remarks that they went through something too, and Taylor recognizes that they’re always there for one another when it counts. Suddenly, she sees something on her phone and blurts, “Oh!” Ridge asks what she saw but she replies, “Nothing to see here.” Ridge isn’t buying it and asks what it is. Taylor claims it’s a random picture. He wants to see it. Taylor hands her phone over — it’s Hope’s selfie of her, Brooke and Deacon. Ridge grumps, “Well, that’s cozy.” He reflects that he asked her to stay away from that guy, and then he goes on a trip… “How about them apples?” Taylor takes him outside for some air.
Outside in Monte Carlo, Finn and Steffy canoodle. She marvels, “This doesn’t feel real.” She thought he was gone and never coming back. Coming back was all he thought about. She can’t stop staring at him — it feels like a dream. Finn assures her it’s real and then enthuses about the magic of Monaco. Steffy says, “It brought me you.” Finn agrees, “It will always be our special place.” Steffy shows her husband his ring; she carried it with her always because it made her feel close to him. Placing it back on his finger, something she never thought she’d be doing, she whispers, “My husband is back.”
Elsewhere, Taylor and Ridge stroll and she apologizes for the photo. He points out he would have seen in eventually. He wants to say he’s surprised but… He flies halfway across the world to help his grieving daughter and she’s spending time with Deacon. Not wanting to focus on it, Ridge remarks on the beauty of Monaco. They reach an overlook and Ridge tells Taylor he’s been his rock. “I’ve never been so proud to have kids with you.” Taylor marvels that it’s been a whirlwind… it makes it seem like anything is possible. They embrace and then Ridge goes in for a sexy kiss. They make out as a helicopter drones past in the distance.

By the beach, Steffy can’t believe Finn is here or that he’s alive. Finn fought so hard for this moment. “Nothing and no one was going to keep me from you and my family.” He recalls how he would think of her when he was recovering and promised himself — and her — that he would keep fighting. How painful it must have been for her, thinking he was dead all this time. Steffy nods. Their perfect little family was gone, like it never existed. She vows never to take him or their love for granted. “I didn’t really believe in miracles until today.” They express their love and share a deep kiss.
