Hope and Liam discussed where they stood after their breakup, and Liam explained that he'd let go after she'd refused him for the last time. Caroline told Steffy and Liam that Hope still loved him, but he assured Steffy that it didn't change anything. Caroline and Rick confronted Bill about his role in sabotaging the Italy wedding, but Bill and Brooke talked the duo into keeping quiet for the time being. After a frank talk with Hope, Caroline rushed into Liam's office, but Bill stopped her from saying anything to Liam. Later, Caroline returned and revealed the truth to a person sitting in Liam's chair with his back to the door. Thomas and Taylor figured that the stock that Stephanie had willed to Thomas would give him the unquestionable authority to run Forrester. Brooke and Rick appealed to Eric to challenge it, but he was powerless to do anything. Tempers flared in a meeting in which Thomas exerted his power as the interim CEO and majority stockholder. Eric discovered a video that Stephanie had made before her death. In it, she informed the family that a loophole in the company's original incorporation gave her the power to name a permanent CEO.

Michael warned Fen that Summer was not a good influence. Later, when Summer needed Fen's help, he rejected her because he was jealous of her friendship with Jamie. Summer blamed Phyllis for ruining their family. Phyllis told Summer about why she'd left home as a teenager. Summer was more comfortable with Avery than with Phyllis. In a staff meeting at Newman Enterprises, Jack became increasingly forgetful, a result of the medication he was abusing.
