At the cliff house, Liam held a baby's blanket to his face. Bill entered with flowers and assumed Steffy would be home from the hospital that day. Liam said he had to take her some more clothes because the other ones had been ripped up due to the accident. "It's all ruined," Liam murmured.
Liam tried to put together an outfit for Steffy, and he almost broke down as he asked Bill's opinion of it. Bill said he was sorry, but Liam insisted that he'd be all right.
Bill took a call from Katie, and afterward, he said Katie was heartbroken for Liam. Liam tried to suck in his emotions, and Bill said that Liam needed to be strong for his wife -- not for his father. Bill stated that, in front of Bill, Liam could punch a wall or throw a chair if the need arose. Liam shook his head. Bill asked what Liam needed and ordered Liam to say whatever it was he wanted to say.
Shooting up from his seat, Liam raged that he wanted to say, "What were you thinking?" He asked what Steffy could have been thinking to get on that bike when he'd told her not to do it. "I told her!" Liam roared and lapsed into thick silence.
Liam calmed down, and he recalled how cool and gorgeous Steffy had been rolling into the wedding on her motorcycle. It had been uniquely Steffy, but Liam hadn't been able to help thinking of how risky it had been. He said that pregnant women didn't do that sort of thing.
Bill asserted that pregnant women did that all the time. Bill felt it had been an accident, and Liam shouldn't be making it about Liam. "Well, guess what; it's my child, too!" Liam raged. Liam claimed that Steffy hadn't cared; she'd just hopped on the bike after promising him that she wouldn't do that.
Liam choked up, and Bill demanded that Liam say what was on his mind. Instructing Liam to pretend that Bill was Steffy, Bill urged Liam to tell her what he thought. "Tell her!" Bill yelled. Liam screamed that he was angry, and "you'd" had no right to do it to him. "So what? I rode my motorcycle!" Bill quipped. "You made me a father, and you took it away!" Liam bellowed.
"You should have listened. You should have listened -- because I told you -- I told you. I warned you, but you didn't care! And now he's dead. He's dead because of you!" a tearful Liam raged, pointing his finger. Liam sobbed that "you" hadn't listened, and that was on "you."
Bill gripped Liam's neck and said that any time Liam needed to express feelings like that again, he needed to do it Bill, not Steffy. Bill said he could handle it, but Steffy couldn't. Bill asserted that Steffy couldn't hear it at that point, and Liam couldn't hold it against his wife.
Liam claimed to understand, but Bill gripped Liam's chin and repeated, "You cannot hold this against your wife." Liam dismally nodded. Hugging Liam, Bill uttered that he was sorry.
At the hospital, Steffy was awake but silent and despondent as Dr. Meade tried to talk to her during his evaluation. Dr. Meade left, and touching her stomach, Steffy recalled Liam making her promise not to ride the motorcycle until after the birth of the baby.
In the corridor, Eric, Taylor, and Thomas assumed that Steffy was well enough to be released. Dr. Meade indicated that Steffy still wasn't talking, and Taylor sobbed about Steffy's lack of emotions. As Eric comforted Taylor, Thomas asked Dr. Meade about visiting Steffy. The doctor relayed that she didn't want visitors, but they might be good for her.
Thomas and the doctor left, and Eric received some business calls. He attempted to delay his meetings, but Taylor said that he should go. Eric assured Taylor that she'd get through to Steffy, and Steffy and Liam would heal together. Taylor asserted that she'd find a way to reach Steffy.
When Thomas entered Steffy's room, she refused to look at him. At her bedside, he said that the family was there for her, and they'd help her get through it. Thomas left, and Taylor entered.
Taylor said Steffy shouldn't blame herself because it had been an accident. Taylor hated seeing her daughter that way, and crying, she implored Steffy to forgive herself for what had happened.
Taylor left the room. Outside the door, she saw a plaque that said the "Mr. and Mrs. Eric Forrester Recovery Wing." She smiled sadly, touching the part of the plaque that indicated Stephanie.
Liam arrived at the hospital to pick up Steffy. Dr. Meade relayed that she was physically ready to leave, but he didn't know about emotionally. Liam braced himself and entered Steffy's room. He told her that he'd gotten her some clothes, and he'd take care of her. He suggested that they have the barbeque that they'd planned. Steffy tried to speak, but he told her not to if she wasn't ready.
Steffy sobbed and said she was sorry. She uttered that she shouldn't have taken the bike, and she was sorry. Liam hugged her as she cried, and he whispered that it was all right.
In Eric's office, Brooke thought of the time Katie had demanded a divorce from Bill. Donna entered and guessed Brooke was thinking of Steffy. Donna realized that Steffy and Brooke had both been carrying Spencer babies, but after the accident, only Brooke was pregnant. Brooke said not to talk about it because she didn't want anyone finding out.
Donna replied that Brooke couldn't hide the pregnancy for long, and Donna wanted to know what Brooke would do about it. Donna felt that Bill should be a part of any choice Brooke would make; however, Brooke said the choice had been made. Brooke stated that if God wanted her to have that baby, then she would. "And Katie?" Donna asked. Brooke said Katie didn't have to know the truth.
Later, Eric arrived in the office. Brooke was there alone, and she asked about Steffy. Eric said it was hard, but Steffy would make it through. Eric asked Brooke to help him with the bedroom line's relaunch in Europe. He wanted to present her in big showrooms in Milan and Paris. Brooke said she couldn't do it, but Eric assured her that no one could sell the line like she could.
Brooke announced that she had something to tell Eric. She recalled the talk they'd had about their relationship, and she told him that she needed something from him. She said that he'd seen her relationships unfold, and she was sick of the scandal and inappropriateness. She'd thought that Ridge would be the man for her, and besides Ridge, Eric was the only other man who understood her.
Brooke said she and Eric had shared children and a good marriage, and she believed they could again. Eric looked confused. She sighed and admitted to being pregnant with Bill's baby. Grimacing, Eric murmured that Taylor had been right. Brooke insisted that she hadn't betrayed Katie, and the pregnancy had happened after Katie had asked Bill for a divorce. Brooke said it didn't matter because Bill and Katie had reunited, and that wouldn't change.
"It will now," Eric asserted. Eric didn't plan to tell Katie or anyone about the paternity, but he was sure Katie would figure it out because she'd already had concerns. Brooke replied that Bill wasn't the father -- Eric was. Eric looked confused again. "You are the father of my child," Brooke repeated.
