At Il Giardino, Ridge confronted Sheila about shooting Bill. Sheila guessed Ridge really didn't think she was all that crazy. "Yes, I do," he replied. With a chuckle, she considered that she might be. She wanted nothing more than to be with Eric. "'Kill Spencer.' Those were your words, and they were very convincing," Sheila said. Ridge replied that she'd done it. She decided that if she'd done it, Ridge had no one to thank for it but himself.
Sheila asserted that Ridge had given her a directive -- "Kill Bill before I do." She wondered what would make Ridge angry enough to say it. Ridge asked if Sheila's defense would be that he'd told her to do it. Sheila didn't think she needed a defense. She'd done her time, and as much as she loved Eric, she wasn't violent anymore. Ridge told her to look at the person she was talking to.
Sheila recalled that Ridge had been wearing gloves that night. She said it had been cold, but Ridge was too tough to wear gloves. He asked what her fixation was with gloves. In a whisper, Sheila exclaimed that the gloves were to avoid fingerprints. She accused Ridge of pointing at her to take the suspicion off himself.
Ridge asked if Sheila was serious. Sheila quipped that she was dead serious, because they both knew that was how Ridge had wanted Bill -- dead. Sheila figured that she and Ridge knew who had shot Bill. Walking off, she said she had to get back to work.
At Forrester, Brooke revealed to Katie that Ridge thought he knew who had shot Bill, but Brooke didn't know who that person was. The sisters discussed Ridge possibly being the prime suspect in the eyes of the police. Katie didn't think Ridge could be the only suspect. Brooke replied that many people had problems with Bill.
Brooke believed it should be a happy time for Katie and Wyatt. Katie replied that Bill had been furious about the engagement. Brooke asked when Bill had learned about it. Katie replied that it had been a few days prior. Brooke pondered about it being right before the shooting.
The Logan sisters discussed Bill filing for full custody of Will upon learning of the engagement. Katie said they'd been able to work out issues before, but Bill had decided to hurt her that time. Brooke replied that Bill wasn't stupid, and he had to know how unreasonable it had been. Katie doubted reason had anything to do with things when Bill got upset.
Katie believed that Bill had felt abandoned. "His old nemesis," Brooke said. Katie knew that Bill didn't want her, but she also knew that he didn't want her with his son, either. Brooke could only imagine Wyatt's feelings about it. Katie revealed that Wyatt had been livid about losing his job and mad enough to kill when he'd learned about Bill going after Will. "Mad enough to kill?'" Brooke repeated in a questioning tone.
Later, Brooke was alone in the CEO's office when Ridge arrived. Relieved that he was back, she asked where he'd gone and who he thought the shooter was. Ridge explained that he'd gone to see Sheila, who he believed had shot Bill for Ridge. Brooke became confused, and Ridge said Sheila had taken to heart something he'd said.
Brooke asked what Ridge had said. Groaning, Ridge revealed that he'd advised Sheila to get rid of Bill if she wanted to do something for the family and Eric. Brooke asked if Sheila had done it, and Ridge explained that Sheila had flipped it around on him, saying he'd done it.
Brooke became worried that Sheila would go to the police and that the police would find out about Ridge's reaction to Bill and Steffy. Brooke believed that the police, who'd already been questioning him, might be back to arrest him.
Ridge didn't think so because the suspect list was a mile long. Brooke glared at him, and he mentioned Sally and Liam as possibilities. Brooke added Wyatt to the list because of the fallout with his engagement to Katie. Ridge added Katie to the list. Brooke agreed that there were a lot of suspects, but she didn't want Ridge to be one of them. She asked how he could have suggested such a thing to Sheila. He replied that Bill had been staring at Steffy as if she were a piece of meat.
Moving down the list, Brooke remarked that Quinn would be very protective of Wyatt, and Quinn could be dangerous. Ridge replied that it was like he'd said, there was a whole list of people who'd want to put a bullet in that guy.
At the police station, Chief Baker discussed the Spencer case with Sanchez. Ridge was one of their suspects, but they were weak on motive. Sanchez said Ridge had hated Bill for a long time and wondered what would make Ridge decide to shoot Bill at that time. Baker asked about the other suspects, and Sanchez said he wanted to question Justin again.
Sanchez showed Baker the contract Justin had been interested in picking up at the crime scene. Sanchez thought Justin might be the key to unlocking the case.
At Spencer, Justin asked if Wyatt thought Justin had shot Bill. Wyatt concluded that Justin would be the one to benefit. Justin agreed that it was true because Bill had cut his sons out of the estate. "I suppose Katie gets to keep the kid," Justin added. To Wyatt, it sounded like a confession, and he suggested they call the police.
Justin reasoned that Wyatt should think of something before calling the cops. Justin recalled that Bill had disowned Wyatt, kicked him out of the company, and decided to sue Katie for custody. Justin thought Wyatt was the one with the motive. He asked if Wyatt still wanted to call the cops. In Wyatt's silence, Justin told Wyatt to get out because Justin had a company to run.
Later, Justin called the hospital to try to get information on Bill. Justin told the staff that he wasn't family, but he ran Bill's company. The staff member gave Justin information, and Justin replied that it meant there was still hope.
Sanchez arrived as Justin concluded the call, and Sanchez asked how Justin's boss was. Justin said there was no improvement. Sanchez wondered if it was good or bad news, and Justin asked what Sanchez was talking about. Dismissing the comment, Sanchez held up the contract and asked if Justin still wanted it.
Justin reached out and said he did. Lowering the clear, sealed envelope, Sanchez revealed that he'd looked the papers over, and Bill had sought to cut his sons out of the business. Justin replied that it made the sons prime suspects, as Justin had said before. Justin said he'd get on it if he were Sanchez, and Justin asked for the signed documents.
Sanchez replied that he still needed them for evidence, and they weren't signed. Surprised, Justin uttered that Bill had had them all night. Sanchez supposed Bill had had a change of heart, and Sanchez noted that the documents would have put Justin in charge if something should happen to Mr. Spencer.
"And something did," Sanchez concluded. He wondered if he should be questioning the sons who'd be cut out or the man who'd benefit the most from Spencer's demise.
Sanchez wanted to know Justin's whereabouts the night of the shooting and if anyone would corroborate them. Justin replied that he'd been working at the company, and Emmy and Jarrett could substantiate it. Unable to believe Sanchez suspected him, Justin said he had no history of violence, and there were plenty of other suspects. "Tell me more," Sanchez responded.
Referring back to the sons, Justin revealed that Bill had wanted to fire Wyatt over getting engaged to Bill's ex-wife, and Bill had decided to sue the ex-wife for full custody of their son. Sanchez asked about Liam, and Justin decided to tell the entire story.
Justin explained that Bill had slept with Steffy Forrester, Liam's wife, and Ridge had been unhappy. Justin thought Ridge, who hated Bill, was a man with a motive. Sanchez stated that he'd talked to Ridge. Surprised Ridge wasn't in custody, Justin advised Sanchez to question Ridge again and to take a warrant the next time.
At the hospital, Wyatt was in Bill's room. Wyatt said he'd just seen Justin, who was running Spencer. "And you went ahead, and you cut me out of the company?" Wyatt angrily asked.
Bill's orderly entered to check his vitals and remarked that Wyatt's mother was in the corridor. Wyatt left the room and greeted Quinn and Eric, who stood in the waiting area. Quinn asked how Bill was doing and how Wyatt was. Wyatt said he was better than Bill, but not by much. Eric stated that Bill was strong, and Eric couldn't believe Bill wouldn't pull through it.
Wyatt said he'd just been at the company, and Justin was running things. Quinn stated that Justin was another person not shedding tears over the incident. Wyatt felt that Justin was as much of a suspect as anyone else. The shooting didn't surprise Quinn, who believed that there was a long line of people who hated Bill Spencer. Eric stared at Quinn.
The doctor arrived and apprised Eric, Quinn, and Wyatt that Bill's vitals were remaining stable. Eric asked how long Bill could stay that way. It was hard for the doctor to say, but she did know that the prognosis got worse the longer he stayed unconscious.
The doctor exited, and Quinn asked if Wyatt was about to leave. Wyatt didn't have anywhere to go because he didn't have a job. Quinn couldn't believe Bill had ousted Wyatt and put Justin in charge. Quinn charged into Bill's room, and Eric said he was worried about her.
Eric confided in Wyatt about what had gone on with Quinn the night of the shooting. Eric said she'd been upset about what Bill had intended to do to Wyatt. Wyatt asked how long she'd been gone that night. "Long enough," Eric responded and described Quinn's fitful night of sleep. He said Quinn hadn't been surprised when they'd learned about the shooting in the morning.
In Bill's room, Quinn observed the breathing machine and monitors connected to Bill. Unbeknownst to her, Wyatt had cracked open the door and was observing her. Quinn told Bill to look at himself. He was weak and defenseless. She hated him for the way he'd treated her over the years. She asked if he knew what kindness and compassion were.
Quinn didn't know how Bill could do what he'd done to his son, who looked up to him. She asked how Bill could kick out a loyal and devoted son. She believed that Bill had earned all the terrible things that had happened to him. She hoped the bullet had been painful, but it was nothing compared to the pain Bill had caused Wyatt.
Wyatt exited, closing the door behind him. Quinn stared at the monitors and the wall plug. She said it was tempting, and God knew that Bill deserved it.
Quinn exited the room and approached Wyatt, who readily told her that he'd heard what she'd said in there. He asked if she'd been the one to shoot Bill. She asked if Wyatt thought she could really kill the father of her child.
Wyatt's phone chimed. He checked it and said there was something he had to do. Quinn stopped Wyatt as he tried to leave. She was sorry for what his father had done to him. She loved Wyatt beyond words and told him to never doubt it. They hugged, and he left.
Quinn returned to Bill's room and stared at him.
