At Spencer Publications, Bill frantically tries to reach Liam and leaves him a voicemail to call him before he makes a decision he can’t take back. Wyatt arrives and Bill snaps at him. Wyatt’s looking for Liam and questions why he’s not at work anymore. “Did something happen?” He explains he’s not trying to irritate him but they’re his family. Bill spouts that everyone’s fine. Wyatt counters that Vinny’s not fine, he’s dead. Bill does a mock dance on his grave and opines that justice is a dish best served cold. Wyatt muses about the one person who caused the paternity mess being dead and asks, “Do the cops know who killed Thomas’ best friend?” Bill bellows that he never wants to talk about Vinny again!
