In the Forrester CEO's office, Ricardo met with Eric, Quinn, and Wyatt to collect the diamond. Satisfied that Wyatt had gotten notoriety for the stone, Ricardo announced that some of his contacts in India wanted to meet Hope and Wyatt immediately to discuss showcasing more pieces. Wyatt was delighted with the prospect of getting away with Hope.
After Ricardo took off with the diamond, Wyatt remarked that he'd told Hope that he'd give her that diamond someday, but it had left the building. The talk with Ricardo had given Wyatt some ideas for his evening with Hope, and he was anxious to get to work on them.
Eric asked if things were going well with Hope. Wyatt believed they had a long way to go, but he had the incentive he needed through all he and Hope had accomplished. Wyatt said that, with Hope by his side, the sky was the limit. For Wyatt, it was more than chemistry; it was his future, and he planned to fight for it. "There's no way I'm giving up the best thing that's ever happened to me," he concluded.
Wyatt left, and Eric wondered what was next. Quinn guessed that it was India for Hope and Wyatt. Eric asked what was next for Quinn, and Quinn showed him a small box. She opened it to reveal some gold-crafted cufflinks with his initials on them.
As Quinn fastened the jewelry to his cuffs, Eric asked if she was contemplating cufflinks for the men's line. She thought it was a possibility but said their partnership could go places that they hadn't even thought of yet. Eric said the cufflinks were stunning, but she'd thanked him enough. Quinn didn't think it was possible to thank Eric enough.
Eric said he'd given Quinn the chance, but she'd run with it. Quinn felt that she couldn't have gotten the international exposure on her own and said she'd finally replaced her gas-guzzling car with an electric car, thanks to Eric. Eric was glad to have helped the Fullers and the planet at the same time.
Quinn said Eric had inspired her and Wyatt. She'd never seen her son so determined. She knew that Wyatt would do all he'd promised to do for Hope. Eric asked if Quinn were convinced that there was a future for those two. Quinn was, and she believed that Hope would be, too, by the night's end.
In Brooke's backyard, Liam declared that he was ready to make it official with Hope before anything else could get between them. He was over all the waiting, Wyatt's games, and Quinn's obsessions. Gasping, Hope said that Liam was giving her an ultimatum in which she'd either severe ties with Wyatt and marry Liam, or -- "Or don't," Liam concluded with a simple tone.
In Brooke's living room later, Hope told Liam that she wanted very much to agree to his request. Liam asked her to give him a reason not to. She said she'd realized that she'd let the thing with Wyatt go on for too long; however, business was involved, and Quinn and Wyatt had worked very hard.
"Harder than us?" Liam asked. Hope started to say that Quinn and Wyatt were finally in a place; however, Liam completed her sentence with, "where they could have everything they've ever wanted in their lives..." He asked if it sounded familiar to Hope. Liam was done waiting and felt that they either had to move forward, "or..." Sighing, Liam said she had to cut Wyatt out.
Hope decided that Liam was right, and there was no good reason that they couldn't get married. Listing Steffy, Bill, and Amber, Liam concluded that his and Hope's problems had ended, and he wanted to spend his life with only Hope. Liam felt that they had nothing to prove to each other anymore, and they just had to cut out the distractions and focus on each other.
Liam said he was focused on Hope, which was all she'd ever wanted from him. Sighing, he decided that he'd asked her one more time. Before he could speak, Hope stated, "Nothing. I'm not waiting for anything. So let's do it. Let's get married."
Liam grinned and asked if Hope was sure. Smiling back, Hope asserted that she didn't want to wait any longer, and she wanted to marry him. Liam quickly swept her in for a kiss. Incredulously, he asked if there were really no reservations. "Not about you, but..." Hope replied.
Hope asked if breaking the contract with Quinn and Wyatt was really necessary. Liam replied that he wished he could trust the mother and son for Hope's sake, but he just didn't. Hope said that Wyatt had promised to respect her marriage. Liam responded that he was unsure about Quinn.
Hope admitted that Quinn had taken things a little far. Liam remarked that once Quinn heard about the wedding, she'd probably think she hadn't gone far enough. He also thought that Wyatt would go after Hope even harder. Hope offered to have Caroline become the liaison with Quinn's company, but Liam said that Caroline could also find another jewelry designer.
Hope was worried because the partnership had been huge for the Fullers, but Liam reasoned that it could be huge for someone else who deserved it. Hope added that Eric really liked working with Quinn. Liam remarked that Quinn probably had the same ideas about Eric as Wyatt had about Hope.
Liam felt that something was wrong with Quinn and Wyatt, and cutting them out was the only way to keep them from harming Hope and Liam. Hope was still worried about the Fullers' business, but Liam figured that the business was going so well that Quinn and Wyatt didn't even need Forrester any longer. "Not like I need you," Liam added.
"...Okay..." Hope decided. Liam kissed her, and she said she'd talk to Wyatt that night when she saw him. Liam stiffened, asking if she and Wyatt had plans. Hope said Wyatt had wanted to see her, and Liam asked if he should go with her to be the bad guy. Hope assured Liam that she could handle it. Liam asked Hope to "come home" afterward, where they'd celebrate and talk about the wedding.
Hope decided that Liam was right; everything had been dealt with, even Steffy. Hope didn't feel as if she was sharing him anymore, and she promised that he wouldn't have to share her, either.
At Wyatt's place, Wyatt busily decorated his living room with India-inspired décor. He also had Indian food, Bollywood movies, and India-themed music.
When Hope arrived, she was amazed by Wyatt's elaborately decorated home. She called it exotic, but he said he'd been going for romantic. It looked like the Taj Mahal to her, and he asked if she wanted to go there. Wyatt excitedly revealed that they'd been invited to India, and he asked if she wanted to do another getaway with just the two of them.
Wyatt conveyed that Ricardo and his friends had been impressed by Wyatt and Hope. Wyatt imagined that it was just the beginning because jewel holders worldwide wanted to see them. There were many places he wanted to show Hope, and talking to Ricardo had filled Wyatt with possibilities.
Wyatt took Hope's hands and said they were at the beginning of something. Hope quietly slipped her hands away. He figured she was sad about having to return the diamond, but he assured her that there were other jewels for them to find. Hope replied that it wasn't about the diamond.
Hope relayed that she and Liam had talked earlier about their wedding, and he'd given her an ultimatum. Wyatt said that it sucked, and he was sorry. She replied that she was, too, but she had to end her relationship with Wyatt and his company. Wyatt said Liam had tried that before, but Hope insisted that she couldn't work with Wyatt.
Wyatt got upset, saying he and Hope were a great team, and profits were good. Wyatt stated that Liam couldn't do it. "I'm doing it. Not him. I'm doing it," Hope asserted.
Hope grew emotional and said everything that they'd done to that point had put things in motion business-wise. Wyatt insisted that it was the reason they had to keep going. Hope responded that he could keep going, but he and his mother didn't need Forrester anymore.
Wyatt asked about him and Hope. Hope wished that she and Wyatt could be friends, "but Liam thinks -- " Wyatt cut her off, saying he didn't care what Liam thought. Hope replied that she cared what Liam thought because he'd be her husband. She declared that she and Wyatt had to end it professionally and personally, and she couldn't see Wyatt anymore.
Wyatt stated that it was "so wrong," but Hope responded that what she'd done to Liam had been wrong. Wyatt said that spending time with him had made her happy, but she replied that it hadn't been fair. Wyatt argued that "this" wasn't fair to her or to him.
Hope insisted that she and Wyatt couldn't see each other anymore, but Wyatt refused to accept it. He kissed her, and she kissed him back. When Hope pulled away, Wyatt declared, "Not a chance."
