After, Ridge stops by wanting to talk to Liam, who brings up how Bill’s being affected by the ruling. Ridge has no sympathy for Bill and growls that this is what’s best for Will. Liam relays that Bill was just there, to see his granddaughter. Ridge figures he was trying to play Liam, who explains he won’t be mad at Bill for putting energy into fixing things.

He assures her he’s getting the full effect and wants her to come closer – he can’t wait any longer. Sally joins him on the bed. He declares, “This is the showstopper right here,” as they kiss. After sex, Sally gives Wyatt credit for supporting her, while he points out she did this on her own merit. He thinks she should also be a model for the line, and she laughs. Wyatt thinks she’s incredible. She feels the same way about him.
At Forrester Creations, Xander tries to convince Emma that he and Zoe were just modeling – it wasn’t what it looked like. Emma snaps that she sees what’s going on, and if he wants Zoe, maybe he should just be with her. After, Zoe tells Xander that Emma should be cheering him on; she’s immature. In the design office, Emma greets her best friend Tiffany, (played by Maile Brady), and tells her she doesn’t want to go to lunch. She complains about Zoe. Tiffany thinks that’s rough, but worries about Emma. She thinks ‘it’s’ happening again. Emma rants that Zoe is trying to ruin things with her and Xander. Tiffany thinks she’s getting jealous again. Emma decides she’s right, and she needs to apologize. In the studio, Zoe warns Xander this relationship is too much for Emma, and he needs someone better suited to him.

Xander thinks his job is a problem for her, but she reassures him and promises the jealousy won’t happen again.
At Spencer Publications, Bill’s surprised to see Brooke stop in. She asks how he’s doing. He admits he’s not great…but better now that she’s there.

Bill can’t believe the judge ruled against him and wishes he’d gone to see him before the hearing. Brooke clucks that would be tampering with the judge. Bill rants that it’s unfair…it’s not right. Once alone, Bill flashes to kissing Brooke.
