If anyone has the power to put an end to Thomas' (supposedly so devious, evil, monstruous) plan, it's Hope.... Liam already told her that Thomas admitted to his face that he's using Zoe and Hope is his endgame.... Then Thomas directly told her how much he loves her and how he still wants to be with her.... She knows he used his son before and And today she saw him kissing Zoe in front of Douglas, which means she knows what he is doing....

I don't really get what Hope is supposed to say and what that would change?

They all know that Thomas just recently has still wanted Hope and has even hit on her at the time when they signed the papers at FC.

Thomas has told Hope that she is his first choice, but in every one of their talks he at the same time has assured her that he is moving on and isn't any longer fixated on her - even lied to her that he wishes her the best with Liam if that is what she wants (just to then stalk Hope and manipulate Steffy into kissing Liam when Hope would definitely have to watch it).

Hope will just look as paranoid as Liam is, because Thomas can just state that he has told Hope every time that he is trying to move on and has told Hope that he has accepted that he can't force anything and that a future for them might be impossible.


Hope: What, that he cares about steffy? No. And if you're trying to say that to intimidate me, it's not going to work. You say you're moving on, and yet here you are--
Thomas: Here I am, looking after the mother of my child. That's all this is, okay? If liam leaves you, he hurts you and he goes back to steffy, what does that mean for douglas? I have every right to voice my concern.
Hope: Well, I am not worried about liam's feelings for steffy. I am worried about you, thomas. You threatened his life.
Thomas: You know, that's-- that's not exactly what happened.
Hope: Oh, okay, taking me to liam's gravesite? That's pretty--pretty hard to misinterpret.
Thomas: Look, he came in here, he was harassing me, okay? I'm not gonna apologize for defending myself.
Hope: I'm not looking for an apology, thomas. I just want to understand. You say that you've changed, you say that you're moving on, and it--and it seems like you're a couple with zoe, but I don't know. Is it a lie?
Thomas: [ Scoffs ]
Hope: You're still trying to manipulate me, aren't you? That's why you brought up liam's feelings for steffy. That's why you threatened him the way that you did. And look, I'm no fan of zoe, but if you don't really care about her you need to be honest with her. Please do not use her.
Thomas: Look, zoe has been good for me. She makes me happy. And yeah, I am attracted to her. What guy wouldn't be? But I share a son with you.
Thomas: Look, I'm not trying to make you uncomfortable. I'm trying to be as honest as I can and honestly, yes, I do believe that the best thing for douglas would be for us to be together, and for us to be a family--one family under one roof, but hey, I fully understand that isn't possible.

Hope: Do you?
Thomas: Yes, I do, but do you realize that it's not exactly the best idea to question my relationship with zoe? I mean, we just started dating, and yeah, I like her a lot, but please don't ask me to put a label on it.
Hope: Okay, well, I am not asking you to marry the girl. I just want to know what your intentions are and that you're not using her.
Thomas: Using her to-- to move on, maybe?
[ Chuckles ] I mean, but that should make you happy. That's what you wanted.
Hope: Well, using her to make me believe that you're moving on is something entirely different and that confrontation you had with liam, that's making me believe that that's exactly what you're doing.
Thomas: Liam has a way of twisting things around. All I was trying to say is that we're working on a line together. We're co-parenting douglas. That means that we're going to spend time with each other. We have a strong mutual love... for douglas. Of course that's gonna bond us and liam has to accept that but he couldn't, okay? That's why he barged in here and he got in my face, and yes, I overreacted. All right? I said something about his grave. It's not my finest moment. I can admit that. But I value the connection you have with my child, okay? The joy and the stability that you brought into his life. I'm not gonna mess that up. I'm not gonna risk him losing that, okay? By not doing everything that I can to move on from you. Trust me.
Hope: You know how much I adore douglas. And he will never lose me, ever. Thank you for being honest. I can...I can see your side of things. And I really do wish the best for you and zoe, whatever ends up happening.
Thomas: And--and, uh... and I'm hoping for the best for you and liam. If he's really the person you want to spend your life with.

Thomas: Wow. Well, I wouldn't give you anything less. I'm devoted to you. I'm here for you, you know. Whatever you need. I'm sorry. That-- that might have come across as me coming on to you. Uh, that-- that's not what I'm doing, I promise. I just--I know that you've been going through a really tough time lately. I want to fix it. I want to make it better. But I have to be straight with you. That's probably not the best thing for me. I mean, if I'm being completely honest... maybe I should have tried harder to forget about you. Hey, your mother hates me. Your whole family, actually, and that's not gonna change.
Hope: Okay, what are you trying to say?
Thomas: Douglas loves you. And I don't regret giving you custody at all. But... it's not the only reason I did it. It's not just for him. You know I did it to show you how much I love you. And I do love you. But I'm beginning to realize you can't always get what you want, no matter how much you want it. And what I want most and what I had for so long is you.
Hope: Thomas, I thought things were going well with zoe.
Thomas: They are.
Hope: Okay, so you're still together?
Thomas: Yeah. I mean, she's--she's beautiful. Zoe's fun, you know? I mean, we enjoy each other.
Hope: Oh. So you're not serious.
Thomas: I'm-- I don't know. I can't say that we won't be. I need a life of my own, a woman of my own. That sounds possessive. That's not what I mean. I just--I... I need a woman who really appreciates me who I can build a life with. And you know I want that woman to be you.
Zoe: Oh. Uh, pam said that you were in here.
Thomas: Yeah, we're, uh, just going over my latest etch.
Zoe: Hmm.
Thomas: Hi.
Zoe: Hi. So you almost done?
Thomas: Um, I think so.
Hope: Plans tonight?
Thomas: Uh, yeah. Dinner.
Zoe: Yeah. And maybe we could catch that cabaret show in hollywood.
Thomas: That could actually go kind of late. Um, hope, I know this is short notice, but would you mind watching douglas tonight?
Hope: Sure.
