At Forrester Creations, Wyatt protests to Liam that he promised Hope if he ever could, he'd give her the diamond. Liam rants, "I trusted you!" Hope says it's good for the company. Liam declares that if Hope respects him, she will return the diamond and fire Wyatt. Nearby, Ivy and Ally decide to go listen in. They hear Liam talking about boundaries. Hope tells Liam the gift isn't grounds for dismissal. Liam keeps pushing until Hope announces she's not firing Wyatt and is keeping the diamond. Liam takes off. Ivy follows. Ally confronts Wyatt and Hope. She lashes out at Wyatt and begs Hope not to let him manipulate her. Wyatt gets a call and has to go. Hope cries to Ally about Liam overreacting. "I think I'm losing him." Hope complains that Liam can't separate her business life from her personal life. Ally chastises Hope for putting business first. Ivy finds Liam outside and he confides that he feels cursed. He moans about all he and Hope have been through. Ivy says she's read all about it, and lets him know she agrees it was disrespectful for Hope to accept the diamond. Ivy thinks it's best Liam found out now what Wyatt means to Hope, but he doesn't think any good has come of this.
