At Bill’s place, Katie talks up his bravery with Sheila. She’s glad it turned out as well as it did for Will’s sake. Bill’s glad she agreed to come over, “I miss you. The house misses you.” He tells her this is where she belongs; it’s her home. Bill understands that she needed a temporary split, but she must miss him and their home a little bit. They spent some of the greatest times of their lives there. Katie admits she’s rethinking sharing a meal with him. Bill guesses it’s because of Carter and asks exactly what is going on between them. Katie is sure he doesn’t want the details. Bill reminds her that she kissed him. Katie counters that she slapped him as well. Bill will hand it to Carter — he’s a smart man falling for her.
At the jail, Sheila thanks her visitor for coming. Jack informs her that every instinct tells him he shouldn’t be there, “What do you want, Sheila.” Sheila smiles, “It’s so good to see you, Jack.” Jack turns to go, but Sheila pleads with him to hear her out. She tells him how much she treasured the time with him, especially the night they conceived Finn. “He could’ve let me die, but he didn’t. That’s the kind of man you raised. Our boy, Jack.”
Jack sidles closer to Sheila and asks, “What are you trying to do here, Sheila?” Sheila thinks maybe they can help one another. Jack won’t be dragged into her madness or help her in any way, and if she thinks he would, she’s even crazier than he thought.

At Bill’s place, Katie brings up him falling for her sister. She tells him that Brooke and Taylor have made a pact to swear off Ridge, so she’s available. “Now’s your chance. You should make your move. You know you want to. Go to her.” Bill says she once had a hold on him, but it had an expiration date, and that time is past. Katie is the only woman he wants and the only woman he needs. A tear rolls down Katie’s face as he caresses her cheek.
At Forrester, Eric coaches Carter to be more confident where Katie is concerned. Carter says she deserves better than what Bill has to offer. Eric agrees; she deserves the kind of life Carter would give her. “I’m on your side.” Carter thanks him.
