Bill warns Maya, Caroline tries to convince Rick they're good together, and Donna confronts Brooke.
At Forrester, Maya tells Bill it sounds like he's threatening her. Bill says he's giving her an opportunity - she's done things, and those things can stay hidden if she stays away from Rick Forrester. Bill says it's not open for discussion - if she doesn't do what he tells her she will face the consequences. Maya says her feelings for Rick, and his for her, don't concern Bill. Carter appears. Bill booms that he was just getting to know Maya. When Carter exits, Bill suggests Maya take an interest in him - he's not dating his niece. Bill and Maya bicker about her past rap sheet. She says she was young and naive and didn't know what the guy she was with was about until she was already pregnant - she's paid for all that. Bill's sorry she lost her child, but still thinks if her past came out it could get messy for her. He warns she'd create a big scandal for Rick and his family. "Stay away from him or trouble is going to come your way."
Outside at Forrester, Rick pulls away when Caroline kisses him. Caroline tries to tell him why he needs someone like her. She tells him how sexy he was at the fundraiser, and goes on about how good they are together. "We should keep it that way." She says they're just experiencing a speed bump - everything was fine until Maya came along. They bicker about her. Caroline tells Rick he needs a certain kind of woman standing behind him. Rick says you don't choose someone to make you look good. She says they still have chemistry. Rick sighs. "Caroline..." She pleads with him not to give up on them, kisses him, and runs off.
In Brooke's office, Donna asks her, "How could you?" Brooke says she doesn't know - it just happened. Donna observes, "You're in love with him; your sister's husband. And now you're carrying his child." She wonders how Brooke could let this happen. Brooke hisses that Katie can't know. She says Katie took off her ring and told her she could have Bill. Donna says, "And you thought she meant it." Donna muses that something like this happened before - when Hope was conceived. Brooke warns her not to go there. Donna asks if she'll tell Bill, who is trying to make it work with Katie. Brooke knows they're back on track - she won't destroy that. Bill appears and notices they're teary. They deflect his questions by asking about Katie and Will. He goes on about not missing a moment with Will and trying to be a good husband. He opines that a real man is there for his child. Once alone, Donna gasps. She tells Brooke, "You heard what a child means to him. How could you not tell him?"
Maya meets Rick in his office. They discuss Caroline. Rick's exasperated - he wants to be with Maya and says it's over with Caroline. He promises to make it right. They hug. Maya's emotional.
