Is Liam Pressing Charges Or Not?
Wyatt is giving up on getting leniency for his mother. Wyatt doesn’t approve of what Quinn did to Liam and in fact was instrumental in Liam’s escape from the cabin. You could even say his arrival gave Liam the memory breakthrough he needed to extricate himself from Quinn’s fantasy life.
Yesterday, Wyatt appealed to Liam’s sense of compassion and generosity and asked Liam not to press charges against his mother. Today, he appeals to Bill, which has to be a harder argument to make. Despite a little tryst in the bedroom after Katie threw him out, Bill has never had any time for Quinn and her scheming and manipulations that always seem to harm Liam. Bill is gently but firm with Wyatt as he tells his other son that his mother has to pay for her crimes against his brother.
At the police station with Quinn, Liam and Justin still in a room Lt Baker gives voice to the sentiments of viewers. He’s had enough begging, pleading, justifications and arguments. He calls a halt. Enough of this he tells the group. Lt Baker tells Liam that they need his answer. Is he pressing charges against Miss Fuller or not?
Katie and Brooke
Katie and Brooke are having coffee in Brooke’s kitchen. They seem to be discussing their sisterly relationship which has gone through its fair share of ups and downs. Katie tells Brooke that they are not the only ones suffering because of their strained bond. Bill is also suffering.
Wyatt and Bill Disagree
Bill tells Wyatt that Quinn belongs behind bars. His brother needs some justice. But Wyatt thinks Liam just wants Steffy back. And Liam holds Quinn responsible for that, Bill says. Quinn needs to pay Bill reiterates.
Wyatt thinks that his mom has already paid. She lost Liam. Not Liam Bill says, Adam. Bill understands he wants to protect his mother but Liam needs closure and the only way to get that is to put
Wyatt thinks Bill has no compassion. Bill says he knows what he did to her brother. Wyatt says Adams gentleness and sensitivity made her whole again. Wyatt thinks Liam did that for his mother, or the man he was in the cabin anyway.
Wyatt leaves to go to the station.
Lt Baker wants to know if Liam is pressing charges against Miss Fuller or not.
Liam is a non violent may. Quinn says she admirers that. Liam says she never used to. He changed that about her Quinn says. Liam tells Lt Baker to press charges.
Quinn’s lawyer doesn’t believe Liam knows what he is doing. She took care of him, not kidnap him. Do you think this is going to be a quick two day affair? Justin says his words can’t be ignored. This case will be high profile and will touch everyone’s lives. He isn’t saying Quinn isn’t guilty, but Just thinks this is going to be a very difficult cast and he will go through hell for nothing. Justin has his best interests at heart. Justin knows this attorney; he will fight the case hard. Liam should walk away and release himself from this. Live his life, because if this goes to court this will be his life.
Quinn apologizes again. She deserves it all. She regrets not being able to make it up to him. Lt Baker starts to take Quinn away, but considering Justin’s’ words, Liam tells him to wait.
Justin and Liam talk outside. Justin knows he wants justice but its best to just move on not relive it in court. Wyatt arrives. Wyatt was hoping Liam wouldn’t press charges. Liam tells Wyatt that he isn’t pressing charges because Justin says the case isn’t strong enough. Liam isn’t happy about it. Wyatt thanks Liam and tells him that he will ensure that his mother stays away from him.
Justin and Wyatt talk about telling Bill the news. Wyatt says he has to credit Liam. Their time together changed his mother. He just hopes she stays that way.
Quinn is released and free to go. Her lawyer and Lt Baker advise her to stay away from Liam. Liam enters he wants time alone with Quinn.
Who are you Liam wants to know. She has been asking herself that same question. Liam says she’s a master manipulator. The woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with is married to his brother. He’s not going to give up on her. Quinn has taught him there are no guarantees in life. Quinn realizes she has hurt the only man she’s ever connected to. She will redeem herself she says. Liam says after today they are done.
For him maybe, but not for her. He taught her how to love and it’s not a lesson she will soon forget. She will make him proud of her. She knows he doesn’t share her feelings but she isn’t the same Quinn he used to despise. She’s the woman in the cabin full of goodness and tenderness – his words. He made her believe in herself. She is going to continue to be the remarkable loving woman he made her. She’s the woman from the cabin that he respected, admired and loved.
Katie Keeps It Together

Bill has had to put up with her craziness and she didn’t want to be another one of Bill’s problems especially what he is going through with his sons. They talk about Liam and Quinn. Katie says something happened between those two in that cabin.
Bill is suffering as much as anyone because of this. He’s caught between his two sons. Katie knows she hasn’t been there for him in a long time. And Brooke says she is getting her sister back. Katie says it still hurts that Brooke said that Brooke still loves Bill and always will. But she’s not going to use it as an excuse to fall apart. She’s going to keep it together for her family.
