In the Forrester CEO's office, Eric thanked Katie again for helping to put Deacon away for the shooting incidents. Ivy and Quinn were eager to get back to work, as was Ridge. Pam noticed a distracted look on Charlie's face, but he claimed that he was fine.
Eric had asked Katie to the office to offer her another job, but the job would be better suited to her talents. Katie asked if Eric was sure and cited that she'd overreacted about her firing. Eric was sure, and he offered her Wyatt's former job, working with Nicole in marketing.
Eric believed it was a perfect fit, but Katie asked what Quinn thought. Quinn was in agreement and added that she wouldn't be there if Katie hadn't alerted Ridge to save Quinn. Charlie quipped that it was really fortunate that they practically lived beneath the same roof.
Katie asked if Eric wanted to run it by Steffy first. Ridge stated that it was the first he was hearing of the job offer, too. Eric asked if Ridge had an issue with it. When Ridge said he didn't, Eric expressed certainty that Steffy wouldn't either, and Eric welcomed Katie back to work.
Quinn seemed unsettled. Eric asked if she was okay and reminded her that Deacon was in jail. Ridge quipped that Sheila should be in jail, too, and not in their family home. Quinn remarked that Sheila had expressed an unusual fondness for Eric.
Later, Katie was alone with Quinn and Ridge. Katie decided to check in with Nicole, but Quinn wanted to talk to Katie first. Quinn expressed her gratitude to Katie for helping to save Quinn. Quinn hoped they could turn the page on Katie's preoccupation with Quinn and Ridge and move on. Katie decided that Quinn was right, and Quinn and Ridge had nothing to worry about from Katie.
After Katie had gone, Ridge asked if Quinn was really okay with Katie returning to Forrester. Quinn believed it was important to Eric, who felt he'd mishandled Katie's firing. Ridge said Katie had a job that was better for her, and he believed she wouldn't cause problems anymore. Agreeing, Quinn said the chapter was finally behind them, and the secret was safe.
At Spencer, Wyatt was surprised to hear that Deacon had asked Bill for bail money. Bill murmured that Deacon had to have thought that history could repeat itself. Wyatt didn't get what Bill meant. Wyatt also didn't get why Deacon was even eligible for bail after attempting to kill Wyatt's mother. Bill quipped that one little bullet wouldn't hurt Quinn -- unless it was silver.
Wyatt didn't think it was funny and said his mother wasn't the same woman that Bill loved to hate. Bill replied that he didn't hate Quinn, but he also wasn't falling for her transformation act. Bill found it remarkable that Katie had saved Quinn after Quinn had fired Katie. He concluded that Quinn owed Katie big time.
Later, Wyatt was alone with Katie in Bill's office. Katie had just told him about her new job. She figured that she'd only been rehired because she'd helped saved Quinn, but Katie really wanted to make it work that time. Wyatt thanked Katie for saving his mother and guessed that Katie had his old job. Katie explained that she's started out in marketing, but it had been a while since she'd run Forrester. She was hoping that she could pick Wyatt's brain a bit.
At Il Giardino, Brooke ended a meeting with Giovanni, a client from Milan. He left, and Brooke was surprised to see Sheila approach the table. Sheila hadn't expected to see Brooke but said the encounter would give Sheila the chance she'd wanted to apologize for all she'd done to Brooke. Sheila didn't expect for all to be forgiven but noted that she'd been deeply disturbed back then.
"And you're not now?" Brooke asked. Sheila had many regrets, but she wanted to focus on the good times. Being Mrs. Eric Forrester had filled Sheila with pride, but she figured she'd squandered it away.
Sheila said Eric had taken a wife who was worthy of him. Brooke fiddled with her napkin. Sheila asked if Quinn was worthy. Brooke didn't answer, and Sheila asked if Brooke didn't like Quinn. Brooke stated that she hadn't said that, but Sheila replied that it had been in Brooke's reaction.
Brooke stood to leave and said she had to get back to Forrester. Sheila expressed how glad she was for a chance to talk to Brooke and thanked Brooke for the opportunity. Brooke left the restaurant. A woman bumped into Sheila. "Would you watch it?" Sheila yelled at the woman.
Sheila sat at the bar to have a martini and flashed back on times with Eric. Behind her at a table, she heard two people being seated as they had a heated discussion with the man, Charlie, making remarks about Quinn and Ridge. The woman, Pam, told him to let it go, but Charlie said that living in ostrich reality wasn't the answer, either. Charlie, who cared about Eric as much as she did, wanted to keep digging, even if he didn't turn anything else up.
Charlie said trouble followed Quinn like tick followed tock. Pam agreed but couldn't blame Quinn for Deacon's decision to go after her. Charlie defended Deacon's motives, saying Quinn had tossed Deacon aside like an old rag doll. Pam was over it, and she told Charlie to drop his lipstick napkin obsession. Charlie said he'd tried, but he was bothered by the living arrangements at the mansion. He just wanted what was best for Eric.
Pam's phone chimed. She saw something on it and decided that she had to get back to work. She told him to go on and eat, but she reminded him that he could be doing more harm than good to Eric. Charlie stammered, and Pam repeated herself and left.
Sheila approached Charlie and said she'd overheard him talking about Eric Forrester. Charlie asked who she was. Sheila replied that he was Charlie. He asked how she knew it, and she said she couldn't help but notice his ID. Charlie quipped that she couldn't help but eavesdrop, either.
Sheila said she'd heard Charlie's concern about Eric, which made her concerned about her old friend. She asked to sit at his table, but Charlie said he was about to leave. Sheila sat down anyway and asked if his concern had to do with Eric's wife. She got the feeling that Charlie didn't care for Quinn, who Sheila had thought was a loving, loyal spouse.
In Charlie's silence, Sheila decided to confess that she was a sucker for a guy in uniform. Charlie asked if she was dating someone in uniform, and she replied that for years, it had been all she'd seen. "Riddle me this: if you're so close to the Forresters, who's that blonde who just ran out on me?" Charlie asked.
Sheila thought the woman had looked familiar. Charlie divulged that the woman was Stephanie Forrester's sister, Pamela Douglas. Pam had lived in Tinsel Town for a while, so he figured that Sheila didn't know the Forresters all that well if she didn't know Pam.
Sheila reasoned that she'd been gone a while, but she insisted that she was just as concerned about Eric as Charlie. Sheila wanted to help if something was going on with Eric or Eric's family and marriage. "So, please...tell me, Charlie," Sheila said.
In the Forrester design office, Brooke met with Eric, and Eric informed her of the new job he'd given her sister. Brooke filled him in about the lunch with Giovanni. She said all had gone well until Sheila had shown up. Brooke had been freaked out by Sheila's odd pleasantries and gleefulness to see Brooke. Eric figured Sheila had asked for forgiveness.
Brooke recalled that Sheila had seemed genuine. "As genuine as Sheila can be," Brooke added. She stated that Sheila had also been concerned about Eric and his well-being. Brooke revealed that Sheila had even questioned Quinn as his wife.
