At the mansion, Brooke is begging Hope to reconsider her divorce to Liam. She tells her that Phoebe is not Liam’s daughter and that her first priority should always be her husband.
Hope argues with Brooke and says that she wants to be there for Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) as she thinks that they have a very strong connection. Hope still thinks Brooke continues to argue until Hope grabs her keys and storms out of the room.

Liam then appears and begins to lash out at Thomas. He congratulates him for stealing his wife and tells him that Hope has decided to pull the plug on their marriage.

Brooke then demands that Ridge puts a stop to this and tries to convince Thomas to leave Hope alone. Ridge argues back that he doesn’t think it’s a good idea to stop Hope. He says that leaving Liam behind might be exactly what she needs right now. Brooke bursts into tears.
