He guesses things are less chaotic since Thomas left. Things get uncomfortable.

She’s been thinking about the evolution of her relationship with Thomas.

Liam isn’t sure he wants to hear this.

She’ll never deny what he did with Beth but it haunts him and she forgave him for it.

He changed for the better.

Since he proposed, she’s been asking herself why she couldn’t say “yes” and isn’t sure what their future holds.

Hope has been questioning everything. She and Thomas were clicking really well.

Her mom told her that her involvement with him was a reaction and Finn suggested it was a rebellion.

She was turning to a one-woman man for once and assures Liam she wasn’t trying to hurt him.

Hope knows she hasn’t turned into her mother but she did dare to walk on the wild side a bit.

She was not using Thomas and she’s certain of her feelings for him.

As much as Liam may not want to hear it, she does love Thomas.

But right now, she wants to focus on Beth and work.

He feels like he’s going through the same thing and putting his focus on kids and work.

He admits that he needs to get over feeling like he has no identity unless he is with someone.

Being a dad should be his identity.

“Who knows what the future will bring us?” she says.

At the beach house, Luna swears it was a mistake and she never meant to hurt RJ.

She insists she’s not making excuses but she was drugged because of her mother.

luna feels bad B&B

She confused him with Zende because she was hallucinating.

RJ finds it hard to believe that Zende didn’t realize how out of it she was.

“Zende found you in his guest house and took advantage of you,” he says.

She says it wasn’t like that and Zende didn’t realize she was drugged.

Zende just misunderstood why she was there.

RJ points out he’s been hitting on her for months and never respected their relationship.

He refuses to believe this was an accident.

rj asks if zende took advantage

She insists it was and Zende did not take advantage of her.

It was all those mints and RJ is the person she loves.

Luna knows she should have come to him the next day.

He points out she’s been hiding it from him.

She was afraid of what it would do to his relationship with his cousin.

rj says zende knew what he was doing

RJ knows she thought Zende was him, but Zende knew exactly who she was and who he was with.

He storms out the door, leaving Luna in tears.
