At the Malibu house, Liam tells Quinn it's over. They rehash Ridge almost dying because of her. Quinn says Ridge is fine and Hope wants to forgive Wyatt. Liam tells her there is no way left for her and Wyatt to get into Hope's life. Quinn says Wyatt helped Hope achieve success while Liam gave her a kitten. Liam says Hope cares about more than dollar signs. Quinn says Hope fired Wyatt to protect Liam's fragile little ego and Wyatt should be hired back. Liam accuses her of having an ulterior motive - to get Wyatt to forgive her. He orders Quinn out - he doesn't care what she thinks or how unfair this feels to her. Quinn tells him the sword around his neck bonds him to his father and brother, yet he's willing to ruin Wyatt's life. "Live by the sword, die by the sword." She jabs his throat.

Maya complains she could have had all the Forresters have. Oliver cautions Maya not to mess up her gig there. Maya talks about how Rick opened her up to dreams of a different kind of life.
