In the Wednesday, May 24, 2023, full episode recap of CBS’ Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy and Liam howl at the moon, Thomas explains what Hope said to his mom, and Hope tells Brooke that everything is under control.

In the Forrester Creations office, Hope tells her mom not to worry about her but Brooke can’t stop.
Her daughter blurting out that she was the issue, not Thomas, keeps echoing in her head.

She realizes it’s late and she needs to call Liam.

After they yell at the moon, they put the kid to sleep.
“That kid just fills me up,” he says, remembering when they saw her for the first time.
He can’t wait until their daughter is old enough to understand how lucky she is.

“That’s convenient for him,” he snipes. He tells her to do her thing and hangs up.
He starts pacing and complaining. He feels like Hope doesn’t give a damn. Everyone keeps telling him Thomas is rehabilitated but he’s not convinced.
