At Forrester, Ivy and Steffy argued about what had happened with Aly. Steffy maintained that Aly had attacked her, and she defended herself. Ivy called Steffy a murderer. Ivy claimed she had proof on her phone that Steffy had murdered their cousin. "Stop lying," Ivy seethed.

Steffy wondered what more Ivy wanted. "You're the new face of Forrester," Steffy said. Ivy said she owned Steffy and always would. Ivy insisted that Steffy had no conscience. Steffy argued that Aly would have killed her.

Ivy countered that Steffy had everything she wanted. She had taken Liam from Ivy and taken Aly's life. "I had no choice," Steffy maintained. Ivy countered that Steffy no longer had a charmed life and had to accept some responsibility.

Steffy was angry. "You pulled over and recorded our fight. What does that say about you?" Steffy asked. Ivy argued that there was no rock in the video to support Steffy's claim that Aly had been about to hit her with the rock.

Steffy countered that there had been a rock, and she wanted Ivy to let Aly rest in peace. "Let this go," Steffy begged. Ivy refused. "I was there too," Ivy said. She maintained that she had watched the video numerous times and had never seen Steffy's version of the truth. Ivy chastised Steffy for making a fool of Ivy when Steffy had stolen Liam from her, and Ivy refused to allow Steffy to make a fool of her again.

On the rooftop at Forrester, Liam and Thomas discussed that Steffy had trouble dealing with Ivy. Liam maintained that Ivy was taking everything out on Steffy. Ridge interrupted and wondered why Steffy would have allowed Ivy to be the new face of Forrester. Ridge wondered what was wrong.

Liam understood that Steffy had allowed Ivy to be the face of Forrester because Ivy had modeled in Amsterdam.

Ridge said it was out of character for Steffy to have turned down becoming the face of Forrester. Ridge insisted that something else was happening behind the scenes. "What am I missing?" Ridge asked.

Thomas and Liam tried to get Ridge to stop worrying. Liam reminded Ridge that Steffy was trying to get along better with Ivy and have less drama at Forrester. Ridge agreed, but he wanted assurance that if something were wrong, Thomas would tell him. Thomas agreed. Ridge smiled, but he said he couldn't shake the feeling that something was wrong, and he was convinced that Liam and Thomas knew what it was. Ridge left.

Later, Steffy and Liam discussed that she did not want her dad to know about the video. Liam understood, but he was tired of Ivy threatening Steffy. Steffy agreed, and she added that she had to live with what had happened -- a memory that would haunt her for the rest of her life.

Steffy worried that she also had to live with Ivy calling her a murderer. Liam was livid. He refused to allow Ivy to control them. He knew that Steffy had done nothing wrong. He promised to put a stop to it immediately.

At Forrester, in Quinn's office, Quinn advised Wyatt to tell Ivy to watch her attitude. Wyatt thought it was funny that Quinn had accused Ivy of being mean and controlling. "You're just not used to a woman standing up to you," he said.

Quinn argued that she had been "rather pleasant lately." Wyatt agreed, but he added there was always room for improvement. Quinn marveled that Wyatt had let Steffy slip away, and he'd hooked up with Ivy instead. Quinn maintained that Steffy was still available, and Wyatt refused to butt heads with Liam again. He said he was with Ivy.

Quinn worried that Ivy was always barking at her. Wyatt reminded his mother that all of them had lost a relative in Aly. Ivy interrupted, and she hugged Wyatt. Ivy announced that she was the new face of Forrester. Ivy and Wyatt smiled and celebrated, but Quinn had a disapproving look in spite of her smile.

In Steffy's office, Ridge quizzed Steffy about letting go of becoming the face of Forrester. Steffy defended her decision. She said she didn't want the stress. She had the ordeal of Aly hanging over her head, and she had a lot of work as president. "It was bad timing," Steffy maintained. Ridge wondered if there was another reason. Steffy said that she would never get over what had happened with Aly. Ridge hugged her.

In Ivy's office at Forrester, Ivy examined some sapphires with a magnifying glass, and Liam entered and congratulated because she had become the new face of Forrester. He noted that sapphires were a lot like Ivy: beautiful, brilliant, and precious.

Ivy countered that she had been all those things until Steffy had returned. Liam advised Ivy to stop blaming Steffy. Liam reasoned that he had made his own decisions. He reminded Ivy that their relationship had become complicated in a hurry due to a lot of reasons including her immigration issue.

Liam said that he had seen a lot of changes in Ivy. She had been colder and darker than ever before, and he worried about the person she had become. Ivy warned that Liam wanted to justify Steffy's behavior by blaming Ivy. Liam disagreed. He said that Ivy had become unethical and self-serving.

Ivy shouted that Steffy had killed her cousin. Liam said that Ivy had used her video as a bargaining chip to advance her own career. He doubted that she was seeking justice for Aly but rather revenge.

Ivy said that Steffy was the guilty one. Liam angrily warned Ivy to stop tormenting Steffy. He admitted that he'd had it with her threats. He dared her to go to the police with the video or delete it and mourn Aly's death properly. "No more threats, no more blackmail -- what's it gonna be, Ivy?"
