Brooke refuses Stephanie's offer, Hope gets an answer to her question, and Bill turns to Brooke for help.
At Brooke's place, Stephanie invites her to come and stay at their house for a few days. Brooke declines. She talks about needing to be there for Bill and Katie, who almost died.
Bill arrives at home to find Katie looking despondent on the sofa. She talks to him in a monotone. Bill says she looks exhausted - he'll get some more help. She tells him she's fine, but admits she's still upset with him. Katie says she looks at him and doesn't know who she's looking at. Bill says he's worried about her. She tells him to check the baby but not to wake him up - she hates it when he cries. She goes to nap and Bill calls Brooke to come over, saying there's something wrong with Katie. When Brooke arrives, Bill tells her the problem is him. She asks what he did. He says it's the way she's upset with him - it's different this time - she won't fight back and is distant. Brooke suggests he just talk to her again. Bill admits he feels like he's losing his wife. He says this is deeper and darker than the silent treatment, and she's also detached from the baby - she's drifting away from them. Brooke says they'll bring her out of this and credits Bill for making Katie a strong person. She hugs him.
Thomas concludes a meeting at Forrester. Hope enters and says, "Your first act as CEO was to throw my brother out a window?" She tells him he needs to rein it in. Steffy appears and says Rick probably deserved it. She asks Hope how she is. Hope snaps, "How do you think?" Thomas heads to the showroom. Steffy and Hope discuss their brothers and then compliment each other's lines. Talk turns to Liam. Hope tells Steffy she did what she had to do with Liam at the hospital. She wonders how long afterward Steffy showed up on his doorstep. Steffy says she didn't know until Liam told her. Hope mocks her for always 'being there'. Steffy doesn't want to rehash everything - it's irrelevant since Hope ended it. Hope wants to know if they're back together. Steffy tries to avoid answering. Hope asks if they've slept together. Steffy sighs, then says, "Yes. We're back together." Hope clears her throat and says she's fine - tell Liam that. She asks Steffy to leave and cries and gasps.
