Katie informs Liam this is how it's going to be. He and the others exit. Katie and Karen discuss the situation. Katie isn't having second thoughts. Danielle arrives. She gets up to speed and they all gush over the future of the company. Karen has to go back to New York for a time and wishes Katie luck. Katie feels stronger and more empowered than she has in a long time.

In Rick's office, Maya presses up against him and purrs that he's so bad. She should already be at the studio. They are kissing when Hope enters. Maya kisses Rick some more. Later, Hope and Rick discuss Maya's love scenes with Carter. She reminds him they are playing characters. Rick is going to try and not let it become an issue between them.

Liam arrives at Forrester and finds Hope in her office. She asks if he got answers in Paris. Liam says the doctor was right - they were answers only Steffy could give him. Hope asks, "And?" Liam says, "I'm home. With you."

At the studio, Caroline singsongs, "Carter's sleeping with Maya!" Carter observes that it's supposed to be a closed set for their love scene. Caroline rushes over and whispers to Rafael that she thinks Rick will be hers again soon. Maya arrives. Caroline teases her about the upcoming love scene. Rafael tells Caroline the scene is very hot. She's certain that Rick will soon be hers again. Taping begins. Carter and Maya are making out half-dressed when Rafael yells, "Cut!" Caroline has texted him tips to ignite things. Later, they pause in the middle of a steamy scene. Carter tells Maya the fire department should be on stand-by. Rafael calls for action and Caroline watches as they seem to connect for real. While running lines, Maya notices Carter gazing intensely at her. He admits he was totally into the fantasy and is into her. He kisses her and says no one has to know.

Caroline finds Rick in his office and reports that Maya and Carter were scorching up the screen at the set.
