In the office at Spencer, a female employee (played by Kym Douglas) gushes to Liam about how much his new policies have helped them. Kym-Douglas-Liam-shake-hands-BB-HWAs she exits, Bill enters. Liam wonders what he can do for him. Bill booms, “You can get your ass out of my chair. I’ve had enough. This ends today.” Liam won’t be bullied, and refuses his father’s demand to resign. Bill won’t sit at home and watch Liam run Spencer into the ground. Liam counters that unless he likes prison, he doesn’t have much of a choice. Bill gets surly again, then struggles to stay calm and tries a different tack – he’s willing to compromise, but Liam can’t blackmail him out of his own company. Liam replies, “Karma.” They argue over gifting Sally with the building and whether she can pay it back. Liam points out it’s not an investment, it’s restitution. Bill hollers and rants. Bill again announces he’s taking control, but Liam shakes his head. “You don’t decide that.” Bill dares him to call the police.
