At Eric's house, Thorne and Eric awaited Aly's arrival, and Thorne worried about how Aly would take some news that he had to deliver to her. Aly arrived and noted that it had to be Thorne's "thing" to take off from work in the middle of the day. Eric replied that Thorne had just wanted to speak to her away from the office, and she immediately grew worried that she'd done something wrong.
The men assured Aly that she'd done well at work, but Thorne said he needed to talk to her about their family. Thorne told his daughter that, though their house hadn't been for sale, a persistent buyer had kept contacting him with higher and higher offers. The final offer had been so good that Thorne hadn't been able to refuse it, and he and Aly had to move right away.
Thorne was sorry there hadn't been time to talk to Aly first, but the offer had been too high to refuse. Aly asked if their memories were worth anything, and he said they'd always have the memories, just not the house. She asked how Thorne would feel if Eric sold the mansion. Eric replied that he'd thought about it because it was way too much house for one person.
Aly insisted that the house was where she felt closest to Darla. Thorne said that Darla hadn't had a steady home. Sally had been Darla's home, and the Forresters had been Darla's home. Eric recalled that Thorne and Darla had gotten married in the Forrester living room.
Thorne said she'd loved the mansion. Aly loved it, too, and said it was the only other place that made her feel close to Darla. "Then you should live here, too," Eric decided. Surprised by the offer, Aly said that she and Thorne could get their own place with the money from the offer. "Full of wonderful memories like this?" Eric asked.
Eric explained that the house had filled with light when Darla had entered, and it felt the same way when Aly did it. Without that light surrounding him, Eric felt like a caretaker of a museum. Aly looked at pictures of her mother and recalled memories of the mansion. She said she'd do it if Thorne would do it with her, and Thorne and Aly hugged.
At the sky lounge, Quinn stood behind a vine-covered wall and eavesdropped on Liam and Hope's discussion about Bill's support for their relationship. Hope said she wouldn't let Liam go to a bachelor party planned by Bill -- if she and Liam were planning a wedding. Liam replied that they would be eventually, and it would be nice to no longer have to defend the relationship against Wyatt.
After Quinn had slinked off, Liam said that he and Hope didn't even have to acknowledge Wyatt's name "after this," but Liam wanted to make sure it was okay with Hope that Bill had gone to talk to Wyatt. "Who?" Hope responded, and Liam laughed at her attempt to forget Wyatt's existence. She smiled, and Liam vowed to work overtime to keep the smile on her face.
In Rick's office, Bill said that he wanted to see his sons getting along, but it wouldn't happen until Wyatt agreed to leave Hope alone. Wyatt claimed that it wasn't about his brother, and he had real feelings for Hope. Bill thought that was all the more reason to back off.
Wyatt cited that the couple was no longer engaged, but Bill yelled that he didn't care if Hope had left Liam at the altar. "You stand by your family. You don't interfere," Bill insisted. Bill concluded that continuing to chase Hope would cost Wyatt his relationship with his brother and with Hope. Wyatt asked if he'd lose Bill, too, and if Bill was rendering an ultimatum.
Quinn arrived outside Rick's office in time to overhear Bill saying that there would be no doubt about it if Bill were issuing an ultimatum. Bill assumed he wasn't saying anything that Wyatt hadn't heard from Liam or from Hope. Wyatt claimed that Hope hadn't said anything like that in a while, and Bill replied that it was why Wyatt was hearing it from Bill.
Wyatt theorized that Liam was nervous because Hope had asked for time to think, and she was spending the time thinking about Wyatt. Wyatt asked why Bill had suddenly changed his opinion about Hope and Liam, and Quinn barged in, wanting an answer to that question, too.
Quinn asked Bill why Liam's happiness mattered more than Wyatt's. Bill replied that he'd never said Hope would make Liam happy. Wyatt received a message about a shipment and left to deal with it.
Quinn asked how Bill dared to interfere with her son. "You should know that 'how dare you' is not a good way to start a conversation with me," Bill replied. She claimed it wasn't a conversation; it was him listening to her.
Bill prepared to leave and suggested that Quinn see him after she'd cooled off. Stepping in Bill's way, Quinn insisted that they'd do it right then. Quinn was amazed at how Bill was pulling strings for Liam and expecting Wyatt to just listen to Bill. Bill said Wyatt would listen. "Because you're his father?" Quinn scoffed. Bill replied that it was because he knew how it would end.
Bill claimed that Hope and Liam had endured many things, but Quinn called the couple's hardships mere setbacks. Quinn thought Wyatt was much better suited for Hope, and she warned Bill not mess with it or the success that Wyatt and Quinn had built for themselves. She felt that Wyatt had earned his chance with Hope, and Bill should give Wyatt what he'd never given Quinn.
Rolling his eyes, Bill replied that it wasn't about Quinn. "You tainted me!" Quinn asserted. She claimed that Liam treated Hope the way that Bill had treated Quinn, but Hope had a better alternative than Quinn had ever had. Quinn refused to let Bill deny Wyatt happiness as he'd tried to deny Wyatt's existence. "I think we're past that, don't you?" Bill replied.
Quinn ranted that Bill had stripped her of her dignity and was trying to do the same to Wyatt. Bill stated that Quinn was making way too much of it, but she asked if Bill knew that Wyatt was talking about marriage. Bill decreed that it wasn't going to happen, but she responded that Bill didn't get to decide what the rest of Wyatt's life would be like.
Quinn raged that she'd been young and na´ve when Bill had thrown money at her and told her to disappear. She asked if Bill knew how it had affected her life. She said she'd told Wyatt that his father was dead because she hadn't wanted him to know the despicable Bill. "I've been called worse," Bill retorted. He attempted to leave, but she put up her hands and stopped him again.
Quinn claimed she wasn't that girl anymore, and Bill wasn't the king of the business world. He wasn't even CEO of his own company, she added. She said that Brooke and Katie were finished with him, and if he wasn't careful, Wyatt would be, too. Bill stated that he'd take his chances.
Quinn claimed that Wyatt didn't need Bill, and Wyatt was as happy and successful as he'd ever been. She refused to let Bill ruin it. Cupping Bill's sword charm, she recalled that she'd made it for the fiercely protective, strong-as-steel man who'd never turn his back on his own blood.
"What the hell?" Bill exclaimed. He looked down to see that Quinn had jabbed him with the tiny sword. Quinn sucked his blood off her thumb and stated that revenge tasted "so sweet."
Back at the sky lounge, Liam and Hope kissed each other goodbye as Wyatt arrived. "Bold move, yoga boy," Wyatt said. Liam replied that he hadn't had any luck himself in getting through to Wyatt, and Wyatt quipped that Bill hadn't, either. Wyatt told Hope that Liam had invited Bill to interfere in her life, and Wyatt asked if Liam planned to enlist Eric next to rip up the jewelry agreement.
Hope tried to mediate between the two, but she got called off to a meeting and had to leave.
Wyatt asked if Liam planned to run to Daddy again; however, Liam asserted that Wyatt was right, and Liam needed to deal with it on his own. Sick of the issue, Liam said Wyatt was having fun with his game-playing, but it was Liam's life. With his Joker-like mannerisms, Wyatt said Liam could live life as he wanted to, but Liam should know that he might not be living it with Hope.
Liam reasoned that there was something off about Wyatt and deduced that it was the way Wyatt did things. Liam said it was the way Wyatt kissed Hope, the way Wyatt disrespected Liam and Bill, the way Wyatt had inserted himself into Forrester, and that sketchy attempted robbery.
Wyatt called Liam jealous; however, Liam insisted that something just didn't feel right. The cocky Wyatt claimed that it did feel right to Hope. Liam persisted in saying that Wyatt knew better than to show it to Hope, but there was something very wrong about Wyatt and his mother.
Wyatt sardonically said it was classy of Liam to drag Wyatt's mother into it. Liam claimed that Quinn had dragged herself into it by snooping through his private emails. "She crossed the line. That is shady, Wyatt, and now I know where you get it!" Liam declared that he would enlist his father, and Eric, and anyone or anything that would keep Wyatt in check.
Liam told Wyatt to savor the attention he was getting from Hope; however, Liam warned that slow and steady won the race, and Wyatt was two steps shy of blowing it. Wyatt erupted into laughter. "Oh, God, I love it! I love it." Liam shook his head and walked off. Still laughing, Wyatt mocked, "'slow and steady wins the race.' All right."
