Hope, Liam, Wyatt and the Cat
Wyatt remained confident about Hope ending up with him, regardless of who or how many men she dates. Quinn thinks Wyatt shouldn’t get lax. Equal time means he sees Hope tonight.
Hope and Liam have arrived at Forrester Creations where Pam is admiring the cat Hope and Liam adopted while researching animal welfare at the animal shelter. When Wyatt and Quinn arrive, Pam takes the cat away since Quinn is allergic (that cat will be one sure way to keep Quinn away from Hope and Liam!) Pam however is concerned the cat may catch something nasty from Quinn – hilarious!
Quinn follows Liam to Spencer and tells him he’s monopolizing Hope’s time and buying Hope with kitten is shallow. Liam reminds Quinn that he has a deal with Hope not her and that rescuing an animal that doesn’t have much time is compassionate and responsible. It also proves that he and Hope share the same values, unlike Wyatt.
Bill, Brooke, Ridge and Katie
Brooke tells Bill how she got him his company and equal custody of his son. Brooke tells Bill that she did try to reason with Katie before playing her trump card but Katie didn’t want to listen believing she was in the position of power.
At Spencer Publications Katie explained that she is no longer is CEO of Spencer Publications and Bill now has joint custody of Will. She’s lost sole custody of her son and control over his life Katie tells Ridge. Ridge thinks its Bill’s doing but Katie seems adamant that Brooke acted on her own. Once again Katie is stunned that her sister has betrayed her for the love of a man.
Katie vows to Bill she will fight him giving him a legal battle like he’s never seen, but Bill is confident she doesn’t have any grounds to do so. He suggests they come up with a new schedule for Will. Much to everyone’s surprise Bill then offers Katie a job at Spencer Publications – and not in the mail room; an executive level position like she held before all this started.
An emotional Katie takes Bill through his son’s bedtime routine and leaves with Ridge. Liam arrives to learn that dear old dad is CEO again, thanks to Brooke.
Bill seems magnanimous when he arrives at the office. When Justin and a brunette Allison arrive to celebrate Bill tells Allison that he won’t tolerate anyone making this situation worse on Katie when she is clearly glad to see Dollar Bill back in the CEO saddle.
At home Katie thinks over Bill’s job offer. Can she continue to work there essentially taking a demotion? Ridge’s reaction is to offer her a job at Forrester Creations, but Katie is unsure of her next move.
Katie feels like she has lost much in losing her job and time with her son. She feels like she had been fighting for so long. She doesn’t know if she can fight Bill on this. Katie feels like she’s starting over again. Ridge tries to tell her that starting over isn’t such a bad thing. Ridge then proposes to Katie!
Oh my, Liam and Hope now have a sure fire way to keep Quinn away from them – just take the cat everywhere they go!
Ridge does what men do – he tries to fix things for Katie – first by offering her a job at Forrester, then asking her to marry him! Oh boy! If Katie marries Ridge now can anyone say rebound?
