Stephanie meets with Taylor, and Katie talks to Baby Will.
Stephanie writes Taylor's name on an invitation at home and waits for her to arrive. When Taylor gets there, she asks if this is about Ridge. Stephanie says it's not and gives her the invitation. "The cancer's come back." Taylor asks if there is anything they can do. Stephanie says not this time. They talk about the party; Taylor's glad Eric talked her into it. Stephanie says she wanted this time alone because she wants to avoid tears at the party. Stephanie tells Taylor there is jewelry she wants her to have. They remember when Stephanie gave Taylor her grandmother's necklace one Christmas. Stephanie muses that she was, and is, like a daughter to her. They talk about Taylor passing the necklace on to Steffy one day. They think back to before Stephanie warmed up to Taylor, and then after she welcomed her as a part of the family. Taylor says she knew they'd be best friends. Stephanie smiles. The pair thinks back on Taylor marrying Ridge and when she had her babies. Stephanie tells Taylor she saw something of herself in her - she was always the compass of the family - never let her interfere with her life. Taylor sobs that if she sticks around she can interfere all she wants. Stephanie tells her she loves her. They embrace.
At Katie's house, Brooke thanks her for her support regarding Ridge and promises to support her too. Bill appears with Will. He and Brooke coo over him. Katie watches them playfully arguing about whether Will's smiling or not. Katie takes the baby and thinks about her heart. Bill remarks that the baby calmed down at his mother's touch. Brooke asks Katie how she's feeling since the c-section. Katie says she's improved. After, Katie talks to Will, who's in his bassinet. She tells him Brooke is good for him - she doesn't understand how Ridge could leave such a wonderful wife and mother. She then tearfully tells the baby "I'm sorry, but I can't do it; I can't let you fall in love with me." Katie tells Will she has to leave, but doesn't want him to think she didn't love him. She's giving him the life he deserves - when he grows up he'll understand that she did it for him. Katie imagines Bill and Brooke as Will's 'mommy and daddy' as he grows up, and them taking him to visit her grave. "It's the only way."
