At Forrester Creations, Maya realizes that Carter asked Rick to rehire her. Rick admits it. He welcomes Maya back. Later, Carter rejoins her in the office. He wonders if she's upset with him for going to Rick. Maya tells him he's fantastic. She says she's back - effective immediately. Meanwhile, Rick breaks the news to Caroline in his office. Caroline decides she's fine with it since they're engaged. Maya and Carter enter. Caroline calls Maya 'Marabelle'. Maya muses that it's like she never left. Caroline worries that Maya might walk again. Maya gives her word that she won't and talks about being committed to Carter and their life. Caroline and Maya agree to try getting along in baby steps. Maya says, "You got it Carol."

At Spencer Publications, Katie apologizes to Adele for putting her in a difficult position back when she had her deliver the message to Bill in Aspen when she had post-partum depression. Adele's just glad she's better now. Katie flashes to her attempt to push Bill and Brooke together in Aspen.

On the Forrester jet, Bill tries to explain to Brooke that when you have a near-death experience like he did, things become very clear. Brooke angrily asks if she was just a conquest, laments what she did to her little sister for him, and tells him what he's doing hurts. He insists this is killing him. Brooke mocks him for taking what he wants and then throwing it away when he's done. She chastises herself for falling for the things he told her - she should have listened to Hope. Bill again says it's hard for him. Brooke tells him she'll make it easy - he's free. She asks that while he's basking in Katie's love he try to convince Katie to forgive her. The plane lands. Bill stops Brooke to tell her she wasn't a conquest. She warns him not to hurt her sister again and leaves.

At home, Katie talks to Will about Donna being a great help. She muses that Daddy and Brooke are in Aspen. Bill suddenly arrives. "I need to hold my son." He tells her about the near-fatal accident during the climb. Bill says his life flashed before his eyes and certain things became undeniably clear. He says he thought about his sons, and Katie, while hanging there. He wants his family back. "Will you let me come home?"

Brooke arrives at home and flashes to being with Bill in Aspen.
