Since returning to Los Angeles, Thomas has become completely obsessed with Hope, doing whatever he could to manipulate her into ending her marriage with Liam so she would be free to "choose" him in the end. Ridge may have been defending his son, but Brooke isn't having any of his nonsense. "I'm in love with your daughter," Thomas insists to her. Later, Brooke confides her concerns to Ridge. "I can't ignore what I see," she admits to her husband. "It's not healthy."
Liam may have agreed to step away from Hope to give her time to heal, but he's not particularly happy that Thomas has stepped into his place. "I don't trust him," he admits of his romantic rival. "And I wish Hope wouldn't either."
After realizing that learning her baby was really alive would send Hope back to Liam, Thomas realized that the secret could never come out and warned Xander, Zoe, and Flo to keep their mouths shut. "You work fast, don't you?" Xander remarks. Thomas looks intense as he warns: "You should probably stay out of this. You don't know what might happen if you get involved." And when push comes to shove, how far will Thomas go to protect this secret? "I don't want to hurt you," he tells someone. But someone is going down... the question is who?
