At the beach house, Sally aimed a gun and seethed about Wyatt's father. She fired the gun, and Wyatt shrank back defensively as the bullet crashed through a framed picture of Bill on the mantel. Wyatt inspected the broken picture frame and asked if she was crazy. He asked what she was doing, and she handed over the gun.
Sally apologized. Wyatt put the gun on the mantel. He said he'd been traumatized by his father, too, but he wasn't going around shooting at people. Sally claimed not to be thinking and said she'd left it in her purse after being at the gun range earlier. Wyatt advised her to lock up the gun if she planned on drinking. Sally said she'd remember the tip. Wyatt thought she might not have to, because his father wouldn't abuse either of them again.
Wyatt poured a couple glasses of wine. Sally asked if it was wise, and he said he was doing it for himself. She apologized for scaring him, but he denied that he'd been scared. Sally said she had never felt so alone in her life. She felt as if she was a ship set adrift.
Wyatt toasted to the two of them as castaways. Wyatt explained that Bill had kicked Wyatt out of Bill's life for defying him, so Wyatt was jobless, fatherless, and single. Wyatt thought he and Sally would be okay, but he didn't how Bill could hurt so many innocent people who didn't deserve it. Wyatt squeezed Sally's hand as he spoke. Sally noticed it, and he pulled back.
Wyatt said he had wanted Sally to know she wasn't alone. Sally thanked him for sharing his wine and sofa, but she decided that she should go. She had her pride and refused to let another man save her. Sally stood with her bag, but Wyatt said he wouldn't be able to sleep if he knew she was just on the beach somewhere.
Sally joked that Wyatt had such a busy day the next day. Wyatt quipped that it wasn't busier than hers. He asked her to stay so he wouldn't have to search for her all night. Sally assured him that she was tough, but he said she could be tough on the sofa. He even offered to take the pillows away so she could feel as if she was roughing it.
Relenting, Sally decided to stay. She said Wyatt didn't have to pretend to be so nice. Wyatt replied that she didn't have to pretend to be so tough, and the two started kissing.
In the design office, Maya and Thorne discussed gown designs. Maya mentioned that Hope was staying late to see something that Emma was working on. Thorne thought it was impressive for Emma to put in extra effort. Maya wondered why the name Emma Barber seemed familiar. Recalling a Barber she knew, Maya asked if Emma and Justin could be related.
Thorne understood Maya's wariness about Bill. Maya wondered what kind of guy Justin was to stick by a vulture like Bill and to stomach that kind of immorality. Thorne didn't think it necessarily applied to Emma -- even if she was related to Justin.
Though Emma hadn't done anything suspicious, Maya theorized that Emma could be hiding something more in addition to being related to Justin. Thorne said it could be a coincidence. Maya hoped it was but noted that Emma was trying awfully hard to impress Hope.
Thorne left for a while, and when he returned, Maya said what she was doing was ridiculous. As she closed her laptop, he asked what she'd been doing. Maya had been looking for a connection between Justin and Emma. Maya decided to ask Emma herself.
In the studio, Emma gave the models coaching tips on how to move and reminded them to keep it all about HFTF. Xander arrived with Simon to announce that Hope was on her way. Simon left, and Xander and Emma talked about her being nervous about blowing it. Xander joked that Emma would knock Hope out.
Simon and Xander huddled together alone to discuss Ridge's need for some promos. Simon noticed Xander's accent and assumed that Xander was making fun of Simon for being British -- though Xander's accent sounded authentic to Simon. Xander admitted that his father was American, and his mother was British. He said he'd been raised in England.
Simon wanted to know what the secret was and why Xander was ashamed. Changing to an American accent, Simon used some surfer-like dialect and said he could speak that way, too, but he knew who he was. He asked if Xander knew who Xander was. Xander explained that he was just starting over and had thought the change in accent was part of it. He asked Simon not to tell anyone about it, and Simon agreed.
Xander meandered away, and Emma approached to thank him for helping her with the logistics of her presentation. Xander said he still hadn't seen her moves, and Emma realized it was because he'd been knocked out. They joked about him never forgetting how they'd first met. Emma decided to take a selfie with Xander to mark their first presentation.
Hope arrived and thanked the interns for staying late to set up the presentation. Emma thanked Hope for giving Emma the chance to show Hope some ideas. Emma had decided to show Hope what Emma had been talking about regarding incorporating some choreography into the models' routines. Hope got excited about it, and Emma told Xander and Simon to get started.
Emma said HFTF had always been about youth creativity and changing the world. The change was reflected in the designs, but not on their runway. Emma thought fashion shows with models walking up and down the runway was from her grandma's time. Emma thought HFTF could do something new to reflect the spirit of the new generation.
Xander started the music, and the models danced into the backstage area. Emma joined them, dancing to an upbeat song with the lyrics, "Boy, you better pump, better pump your brakes." They ended by slouch-posing with their elbows on each other's shoulders. Hope applauded.
Emma thanked the models, and Hope was impressed that Emma had even had the time to do it. Xander said Emma had choreographed it herself. Hope said she was also impressed by the initiative and effort they'd all put into it. Emma didn't think she could have done it without help from the guys. Xander emphasized that it had been Emma's idea.
Hope thought it was fresh and original and said it would be a great way to show off their designs. Hope realized it was a lot to ask of an intern, but Hope wanted Emma to do whatever she had to do to get that energy onto the runway. Emma agreed to do it, and Xander said she'd have all the help she needed. Hope stated that the threesome made a great team.
Hope asked Simon to take her to meet the dancers, and once Xander was alone with Emma, she said they'd done it. Xander thought it was a good thing they liked working together.
Later, Hope went to the design office and updated Thorne about the choreography changes from Emma. Hope offered to have another presentation, but Thorne said he was good with it if Hope was. Thorne wanted to address with Hope what he and Maya had been discussing earlier and asked if Hope thought Emma Barber could be related to Bill's trusty sidekick Justin.
Hope was speechless in thought. Thorne said no one was accusing Emma of anything, but if Emma was related to Justin and had kept it a secret, they might have a problem.
Back in the studio, Emma was alone. She looked at the picture she'd posted of herself and Xander. Emma wandered over to a gown rack and started clicking pictures. Maya stepped out from the shadows and demanded to know why Emma was taking pictures of the designs.
Maya said the designs hadn't been shown yet. As if she suspected she was in trouble, Emma uttered that she knew, but it was for work. Maya asked if Emma was using her personal phone. Emma began explaining that they'd done a presentation, and Hope had told Emma to do something. Maya asked if Hope had told Emma to take pictures. "No..." Emma replied.
Maya called Emma the star intern, Emma Barber. Maya said she'd wondered about Emma's last name and had realized it belonged to the man who'd helped target Maya, her family, and Forrester. "Justin Barber," Maya stated. Emma admitted that Justin was her uncle.
Maya decided that it wasn't a coincidence that Emma was related to Justin and in there cozying up to Hope and taking pictures of her line. Emma claimed it had nothing to do with her uncle, but Maya asked why Emma hadn't said anything when she knew how people around there felt about Bill Spencer. Emma replied that she should have. Maya asked if Emma understood why it was a problem and if Emma understood the damage Bill had done to Maya and her family.
Emma said she wasn't there for her uncle. She was there to be a part of Forrester. Maya berated Emma for not being honest and wondered what else Emma hadn't told them. Maya would not stand for Emma trying to con Hope or sabotage the line because it was her family's business and her husband's legacy. Maya believed Rick would want her to protect it and his sister.
Emma stated that it wasn't what Maya was thinking. Maya stated that she was sorry, but there was no place for Emma at Forrester Creations, and she was fired.
