Brooke and Rick worry, Bill argues with Justin, and Hope is chased by the press.
Fashion Week is in full swing in Aspen. At Bill's house, Hope tells Liam she wants to come with him into town - she's sure she'll blend in with the crowd. He hopes so.
In Bill's office, he continues to bicker with Justin about his plan. Justin reminds him that Liam has asked repeatedly to be allowed to live his own life. Bill says it's a chance he has to take - he can't sit by and let him make the mistake of marrying Hope Logan. He says if Hope rises to the occasion he'll back off, but Justin doesn't think so. He tells Bill he's rooting for Steffy because he wants her back in the family. Bill takes a call from Ramona, who say Steffy doesn't want Hope being hassled. Bill insists she stick to the plan.
At Forrester, Rick tells Othello by phone that he doesn't like the sound of Steffy and Ramona hanging out together. He hangs up and complains to Brooke that Liam is working and Hope must be on her own - he's concerned. They discuss Steffy - neither of them trust her, but Brooke doesn't think she will pull anything this time. They worry about someone tipping off the press to Hope's presence, and Liam's ability to take care of her.
At the main event in Aspen, Hope tells Liam to go to work - she'll be fine. Ramona spots her beside a tree and goes to alert the press. Oliver mutters, "Let the feeding frenzy begin." Nearby, Steffy sees Liam working. Ramona says he came with Hope, but it's who he leaves with that matters. The paparazzi surrounds Hope and bombards her with questions. She runs. Liam and Steffy chat by the catwalk about the magic of Aspen. Liam does some interviews, and Ramona tells Steffy it looked like they were both in love. Othello spots Hope trying to lose the press, and calls Rick, assuring him he'll try to get her back to the house. Steffy gets wind of Hope being hassled and tells Ramona they have to find her. Hope runs through the town until Othello picks her up in his car. Liam begins to be concerned about Hope's whereabouts.
In his office, Bill gets an update from Oliver. He tells him to take the paparazzi out to his house and put Hope's feet to the fire!
At Bill's retreat, Hope thanks Othello for the ride and goes inside. The paparazzi surround the house and take pictures through the windows. Hope's pills fall from her bag. She picks them up and holds her head.
