Wyatt and Katie took a break from their romantic evening to divulge to each other the latest gossip from their respective families. Bill made a passionate plea to Brooke for her to forgive him for his misgivings so that they might repair the foundation to their damaged marriage. Brooke expressed to Bill her fears and concerns regarding their future together. Steffy and Ridge compared notes on the facts that they each know surrounding the separation of Brooke and Bill. Brooke was very careful with her words when she explained to her family why she decided to end her marriage to Bill. Furious from losing Brooke, Bill paid an angered visit to Liam to assure him that Spencer Publications would soon be back under the original leadership. Ridge was confident that, in time, he and Brooke would reunite. As Wyatt attempted to put together the clues that point towards Bill being associated with the Spectra fire, Katie subtly hinted that his suspicion is correct. As Sally showed him around the newly renovated Spectra Fashions offices, Liam surprised her with something that would assist her with the rebuild. Wanting to resolve the issues within the Spencer family, Steffy promised Bill that she would have a heart-to-heart discussion with Liam about a solution. When Wyatt confronted his father about the fire, Bill confessed and admitted to being blackmailed by Liam. Brooke became emotional when she learned that her family had all of her belongings brought back from Bill’s house and moved back into her own home. When Bill and Liam’s peace talks fell short, Steffy reminded her husband about what could happen to the Spencer family if he and his father do not reconcile. On behalf of Bill, Wyatt confronted Liam about blackmailing their father and ousting him from his own company.
