In Eric's office, Eric and Kristen discussed her meeting with Stephanie and Kristen tried to explain to him how crazy Stephanie makes her by being so critical. Eric suggested that Stephanie was only acting out of concern and affection and suggested that Kristen spend more time with the family. Kristen told him that Stephanie was giving her a hard time about not having a man in her life which prompted Eric to ask why she didn't since she was so beautiful and accomplished. Kristen assured him that she is not gay and tried to explain her uneasiness around men outside of business situations. Eric asked if she had spoken with a therapist about it and Kristen assured him that wasn't necessary - that she would one day find a man who would accept her the way she is. Thorne, Brooke, and Ridge arrived for their staff meeting and Eric asked Kristen to stay for the meeting. Eric and Ridge began discussing Antonio Dominguez and Eric announced that he had known for a while that the next big fashion wave would be of a Latin flair. Ridge suggested seeking out Antonio to try to woo him to Forrester Creations but Eric said that he wanted Kristen to make the offer. Ridge objected but Eric insisted that Sally was trying to lure Antonio to Spectra Fashions and was probably also bad-mouthing all of the Forresters - all of them except Kristen. Eric told Kristen to get Antonio's address from Megan and bring him in. After Kristen left the office, Eric assured Ridge that he had given this assignment to Kristen so that she would stay in town. Brooke suggested to Eric that he might have possibly set Kristen up for a failure that would make her leave town even quicker.
At Spectra Fashions, Darla, Antonio, Sally, and Clarke were staring at a dress designed by Antonio that was being modeled by Sofia. They were all complimenting Antonio's innovative and brilliant style. Sally assured Antonio that his designs would soon be a part of mainstream fashion with the power of Spectra Fashions behind him. They all reviewed a graph of their past 10 year sales in comparison with Forrester Creations sales and agreed that a new line of clothing for their clientele instead of Forrester's clientele which would be dedicated to the memory of Macy would ensure their future success. Sally explained the history to Sofia and announced that - not only would Los Angeles' 40% Latino market share love Antonio's designs, but every woman would. Antonio promised Sally that Macy's death would not go unpunished. Antonio was stunned when Sally instructed Clarke to take him to his new home. Clarke took Antonio to his new home - the beach house once occupied by Macy and Kimberly. Antonio asked Clarke if there was anything anyone could do to alleviate Sally's pain and Clarke assured him that he and his designs could. Antonio was clearly overwhelmed and assured Clarke that he would be loyal and would not jump ship. As soon as Clarke left the beach house, Antonio began working on his new designs.
The Forresters were surprised when Sally arrived at the office. Sally reminded the Forresters that the one-year anniversary of Macy's death was upon them and that she had come to announce a press party at Spectra Fashions, of which they were not invited. She told them that she had hired a new designer and his first collection would be dedicated to the memory of Macy. This collection, she added, would knock them out of first place and because it would be dedicated to Macy - would not fail. Brooke commented to Sally that she wouldn't be so sure of that.
Kristen arrived at the beach house and rehearsed her greeting to Antonio. When Antonio came to the door, Kristen was unable to speak, so they both grinned and Antonio invited Kristen inside. When Kristen introduced herself and her affiliation with Forrester Creations, Antonio's smile disappeared. Antonio told Kristen that he was already working for Spectra but Kristen asked him to consider her proposal and tried to tempt him with prospects of working with expensive fabrics at an established fashion house. Kristen assured Antonio that she knew it would be a difficult decision to leave Spectra but promised he would not regret it.
