Caroline is blindsided by Bill when he confesses about the flagrant story that he told Thomas. Bill attempts to persuade Caroline into going along with the plan, but her trepidations prevent her from doing so. Sheila is determined to win Eric’s confidence after he voices his distrust in his family. Steffy refuses to reveal Eric’s whereabouts to Ridge and discloses about the earlier interaction that she had with Sheila.

Inconsolable from his wife and his son’s betrayal, Eric imagines the passion that took place between Ridge and Quinn. Sheila comforts Eric and takes pleasure in every second of it.
