Appalled by his wife’s actions, Eric paid a visit to Katie to find out how she’s fairing following her skirmish with Quinn.

A routine massage by Mateo turned into a counseling session where Quinn revealed a side of herself that’s rarely seen. Steffy approached Bill with the sole intention of making peace between him and his estranged son, Liam. Bill gave into Steffy’s prodding by admitting that he’s partially responsible for his argument with Liam. Ridge made an appearance at Spencer Publications in hopes of finding out from the source how and why Liam ousted Bill from the company. Liam turned the tables on Ridge by asking about a possible reunion between him and Brooke now th20at she left Bill. Even though the topic’s an uncomfortable one for the sisters, Brooke told Katie more about her and Bill’s relationship. Unaware of the ongoing communication that Justin has been passing along, Liam questioned him about where his loyalty lies and threatened his job at Spencer Publications. Having already dealt with the wrath of Quinn regarding their relationship, Wyatt and Katie pondered what kind of reaction they’d receive when Bill finds out about them. Steffy offered to speak with Liam on Bill’s behalf but insisted that her father-inlaw drop his determined revenge. As Steffy spoke with Liam, Bill and Justin hired an expert to assist them in retrieving the taped confession.
