At the mansion, Brooke expressed that it was a bad idea for Eric to let Sheila recover in his home and Sheila should be in a hospital if she were that bad off. Eric explained that James had said the treatment would be the same, and hospitalization would complicate things. Brooke didn't know what could be more complicated than having Sheila bedridden in his home.
Upstairs in the guest bedroom, Sheila spoke on the phone with Beatrice, who thought Sheila was avoiding sittings and didn't want the portrait anymore. Sheila very much wanted the portrait and assured Beatrice that she'd be paid. Sheila was just still trying to figure out where to put it.
Sheila received a call on the other line and clicked over. It was James, saying he couldn't go along with the scam. She asserted that he'd better do it, or she'd go to the medical board about his prescription drug abuse.
Hearing voices in the hallway, Sheila clicked off the calls and hopped into bed. Brooke and Eric entered the room, and he remarked that Sheila was asleep. "Or is she?" Brooke asked.
Brooke still couldn't believe Eric had the woman in his house like that. Eric said he realized it was a risk, but he was willing to take it. Brooke called to Sheila, but Sheila pretended to be asleep. In her head, Sheila said Brooke would go away if Sheila didn't open her eyes. Brooke stated that she wouldn't leave until Sheila spoke to her.
After a while, Sheila stirred and acknowledged Brooke. Brooke explained that she knew Sheila had bumped her head and needed rest, but Sheila couldn't do it there. Pulling at the covers, Brooke decided that they were going to get Shelia up and moving. Sheila quizzically turned to Eric. Brooke suggested that Eric take care of Quinn, and Brooke would handle "this."
Brooke got Sheila out of the bed, saying that Sheila would recuperate somewhere else. Eric indicated that they should wait for James, who'd be back with some medicine. Brooke said that Sheila was doing fine, and Sheila was fine. "Want to bet?" Sheila said in her head. Sheila faked a weakening of her legs, and Eric hurriedly helped her back into bed.
Eric received a message on his phone that James was at the gate. Brooke stated that they'd get James to reexamine Sheila to determine exactly what was going on with her.
After Eric had gone, Brooke asked Sheila to sit up and talk to her. Brooke warned that she didn't buy it, and it had better not be another of Sheila's stupid stunts. Sheila wouldn't look at Brooke, who continued talking. Brooke didn't care about Quinn, but she did care about Eric. Eric had been in Brooke's life for decades, and she vowed to protect him.
James entered with a white paper bag. He and Brooke greeted each other with a hug and noted that it had been a while since they'd seen each other. James said that Eric was with Quinn, and Eric had said Sheila had gotten a the knees. Brooke affirmed it but wondered if Sheila was just faking.
James asked if Brooke disbelieved that Sheila was injured. Brooke replied that she might if it were someone else, but he and Brooke both knew what Sheila was capable of. Brooke asked for the truth. James said it was a complicated situation that needed extreme caution.
Sheila complained of a headache, and James asked Brooke to turn down the lights on her way out. Brooke said she wanted to stay while he examined Sheila. In her mind, Sheila willed James to get Brooke out of there. James didn't get the mind vibes and started the exam.
Upon taking Sheila's pulse, James determined that it was normal. James shined a light in Sheila's eyes, and she winced. Brooke asked if it was normal. He thought Sheila was slow to react. Brooke said she just needed to know if Sheila could be moved, and Brooke believed James would agree with Brooke that it wasn't appropriate for Sheila to be at the mansion.
James relayed that the fall hadn't made anything worse, and Sheila seemed to be improving. Sheila's face crinkled in displeasure, and in her mind, she began warning James. He advised against moving Sheila. He offered to call an ambulance if Brooke insisted, but he reminded Brooke that Eric hadn't wanted publicity.
James advised that Sheila should rest there a few days. He said that if she improved, then he wouldn't have to return. Shocked, Brooke asked if that was the end of it. She was surprised by how brief the exam had been. James replied that they'd taxed Sheila enough.
Brooke asked what was going on there. Brooke wanted to know if Sheila was hurt or just trying to manipulate her way back into Eric's good graces. James was silent, and the incredulous Brooke asked if he was helping Sheila or protecting her for some reason. In his silence, Brooke demanded to know the truth.
At Spencer, Liam still couldn't believe that Steffy wasn't seeing how messed up the whole situation was with Thomas, Caroline, and Sally. Steffy didn't feel good about lying, but seeing Thomas with his son did make her feel good. Steffy loved Liam's caring nature. It made her want to do the right thing -- like he always did. "Well, not always," he mumbled.
Steffy insisted that she had to think about Thomas and Douglas. Saying she didn't want to be at odds with Liam over his father's lie, Steffy kissed and hugged Liam.
On her phone, Steffy saw a post of Thomas with Douglas and Caroline, who were picnicking in Central Park. She read that they'd also gone to the zoo. Liam quipped that it was what one did with a dying person. Steffy understood that Bill's plan was ruthless, but in her view, it was also working. Liam mumbled that it wasn't working for Sally.
Steffy received a message from Quinn and said Sheila was staying at the mansion. She raged that Sheila was worse than Quinn and shouldn't be anywhere near Eric. Liam asked if Steffy wanted to check on Eric. Steffy wanted to be able to enjoy the alone time with her husband.
Liam knew how much family meant to Steffy, and he knew she'd do anything for them. Steffy fought for the people she loved, and Liam was grateful to be one of them.
At Katie's house, Wyatt and Katie kissed. Seeing a binder in his hand, she hoped he hadn't planned on working. Watt relayed that his truck was in the shop, so he'd taken a car there. Katie had invited him to dinner, and he asked it if would just be them all night. She affirmed it. He said it was interesting. She stated that she had a surprise, new recipe.Taking her into his arms for another kiss, he said it was very interesting.
Later, Wyatt sat on the sofa and asked if Katie needed help in the kitchen. She responded back that she'd told a lie, and she hadn't cooked. Exiting the kitchen in a black teddy and thigh highs, she said they'd have to order out. Wyatt wondered who needed food. "What is this?" he asked, gesturing to her outfit. Assuming he didn't like it, Katie began incoherently stammering.
Wyatt told Katie that he hadn't said he didn't like it; it was just unexpected. He loved how unpredictable she'd been, and as he kissed her neck, he called her a gorgeous, talented woman who looked incredibly sexy. They kissed and chuckled, going up the stairs.
A saxophone instrumental played over the scene as Wyatt and Katie reached the bedroom. They peeled each other's clothes off and had sex on the bed.
Afterward, Wyatt and Katie lay tangled in the sheets, and he asked if she always wore sexy getups beneath her clothes. She said he'd have to investigate more often to find out.
Katie said it was a big step for her. Wyatt replied that it was for him, too. Katie had had her heart stomped on, and she wasn't sure if she could trust her feelings. He said she could trust his feelings. With others, he'd asked the same questions and worried about the same things she'd worried about, "but not us." He believed it was good between him and Katie and had no doubt that it was their time.
• Brooke reminds Eric that Sheila can never be trusted.
• Bill asks if Katie has a man in there.
