Brooke notes they had some wonderful times together.

At Forrester Creations, Quinn marvels to Ridge at how far they’ve come. Talk turns to Brooke. Ridge thinks she’s put what they did behind her. Eric-Ivy-talk-FC-BB-HWElsewhere, Eric remarks to Ivy on Thorne’s view of him forgiving Ridge – he may have a point. He muses that maybe he should stand up to Ridge more; maybe Brooke should too. Meanwhile, Quinn is joined by Liam in the design office to get a quote. Quinn inadvertently mentions the bracelet Steffy left in their guesthouse. Liam agrees it’s strange she would stay there. He confirms it was the night they fought. Quinn wonders if there’s a problem – he seems so concerned. Liam is taken aback to learn the bed and the shower were used…it doesn’t make any sense. If what Quinn is saying is true, Steffy lied. “What possible reason would she have to keep this from me?”

Bill shows up to check on Steffy in Malibu. They rehash having to smile, pretend, and lie. Steffy reveals that she almost confessed; Liam was asking a lot of questions and she ended up telling more lies. “This is not who I want to be!” Bill asks Steffy to close her eyes and picture herself pulled over on the side of the road, processing and forgiving Liam for what he did. He insists if she believes that’s where she was, Liam will too. Steffy cries that the guilt is all over her face; it’s haunting her, but then decides she can do this. Later, Liam returns and tells Steffy her bracelet was the inspiration for Quinn’s new line. He questions her about using the bed and shower at the guesthouse the night they fought. Steffy looks like a deer caught in the headlights.
