Bill is in his office talking to his secretary. As she leaves, Stephanie walks in. She asks Stephanie about her next installment of the Logan Chronicles. Stephanie tells her she doesnt have anything. This is surprising news.
After the secretary leaves, Bill acts a bit surprised to see Stephanie. She knows hes not serious, especially since she figured out his plan. Bill says of course shes there to save her precious Eric. Bill in a satisfied tone says too bad, since he holds all the cards. Stephanie raises her eyebrows.
At Forrester, Eric tells Donna things are looking up with Bill Spencer trying to take the company. Donna tells him not to underestimate Bill. Hes a very determined man. Eric thinks the hold isnt quite so strong, since Stephanie isnt helping anymore. Donna is very skeptical.
Nick and Jackie are in his office at the company. Jackie tells Nick shes free to babysit, since he and Bridget have a lot to catch up on. Nick tells her she wont be seeing Jack, if Owen is involved. Jackie is surprised. Nick tells her he doesnt want Nick around his son or the company. Jackie tells him to stop talking about Owen like hes a criminal. Owen is good for her and the company.
In Erics office, Donna warns Eric even without Stephanie, Bill is a force to be reckoned with. Eric thinks their clients will come back without Stephanies negative influence. Donna hopes hes right and Stephanie doesnt cause them more trouble.
In Bills office, Stephanie tells him he acts like this is a game. Bill laughs drily and tells her hes having a ball. She warns him its dangerous territory. Bill says for Eric maybe.
Stephanie isnt clear what he means. Bill tells her it will be a problem for Eric, if he hired undocumented workers. Stephanie looks a bit uncertain.
Still in his office, Bill tells Stephanie its an illegal act to have undocumented workers. Stephanie glosses over his comments and tells him she was an unhappy woman, who made a mistake. Bill says he had high hopes to have her as a co-conspirator. Hell have to change his strategy somewhat. Stephanie warns him to be careful in throwing accusations around. Bill laughs and tells her Eric is staring prison in the face and she is threatening him. Stephanie says Eric is not at risk. He just took some comments she said out of context. Bill isnt convinced. He thinks her just being there proves theres more to it. He just needs to dig deeper. Stephanie laughs and tells him if he has time to waste go right ahead. Bill says maybe thats what the problem is; he has too much time on his hands. Thats why he wants FC so bad, he can taste it. He will have the company, so its just a matter of whether Eric goes to jail to get it. Stephanie tells him that will happen over her dead body. Bill tells her not to make promises she wont keep. Stephanie tells him its not a promise its a threat. She tells him not to get ahead of himself. Bill laughs at the challenge.
Back in Erics office, Donna tells Eric shes not sure they can trust Stephanie. Eric says Stephanie promised their kids and wont go back on her word. Donna doesnt think it will matter, since Bill plays to keep.
After Stephanie leaves, Bill sits at his desk watching a clip of Forrester. It shows Donna as she seductively touches Eric on stage, wearing a provocative outfit. Bill watches with undisguised interest. Jared comes in per Bills request. Bill turns off the clip.
Jared asks about the project Bill has for him. Bill prefaces it by saying Jared has covered all the Forresters press events for years with Spencer Publishing. The Forresters consider him to be one their most trusted press contacts. Jared says thats fair to say. Bill says hes doing a bit of research on their history. He asks about Eric. Jared says hes a kind man, above reproach. Bill says of course. He reads the excerpt Stephanie wrote and questions Jared about what it could mean. Jared has no idea of any transgressions. Bill casually asks what Jared knows about the employees. Jared says very little. Bill makes the observation theyre mostly foreigners. Jared says this is true of most fashion houses. Bill makes a statement that Eric may not have always been above the law where this is concerned. Jared asks if he has proof of this. Bill tells him this is where he comes in. Jareds mouth is open with shock.
Stephanie goes to Erics office. Hes alone. She tells him shes decided not to proceed with the Logan Chronicles, after speaking with their children. Eric lets her know hes aware, since the kids came by to tell him. He knows theyre grateful. Stephanie tells Eric they still have a problem with Bill Spencer. Eric sarcastically says he thought Bill was her new best friend. Stephanie pauses and tells him Bill is taking something she said to heart. Eric looks interested. She tells him Bill thinks FC might have hired undocumented workers. Eric looks shocked.
Back at Jackie M, Jackie realizes Nick is giving her the silent treatment. Nick tells her they dont see eye to eye. He thinks she is a beautiful woman with money and Owen is taking advantage of her. Jackie wonders why he doesnt think Owen could just like her for herself. They are interrupted by Owen, who thought it was time for their meeting.
In his office, Eric is angry. He wants to know what Stephanie said. She tells him it was just an innocuous comment. She asks Eric are they in danger. He tells her no. They have been investigated before. He assures Stephanie they are protected. Bill wont find anything. Eric yells at Stephanie he cant believe she got involved with Bill Spencer. Hes a pariah. Was she really that angry with him. Stephanie is angry and tells him it was about their children. She felt Eric pushed them aside for his family with Brooke. Eric still doesnt understand how she could get together with Bill. Stephanie lets it out that Bill was going to buy the company and sell it to her. Eric is flabbergasted. He cant believe Stephanie was part of the plan to steal Forrester. Stephanie tells him to get over it. They have to make sure Bill doesnt have anything.
Jared returns to Bills office with what he asked for. He lets Bill know he doesnt feel comfortable about this. Bill tells him if Eric hasnt done anything wrong, it wont be a problem. If Eric has done something, he needs to be held accountable. Jared used his contacts to pull some records of the employees. He tells Bill it will be like finding a needle in a haystack. Bill confidently eats an apple. He tells Jared if they find it, it will be well worth the effort.
In Nicks office, Owen gives a business plan. Nick looks unimpressed. Jackie thinks it sound excellent. She gets a call and has to leave. She tells the men to play nice. She leaves.
Owen is with Nick in the office. He asks if theyre through. Nick says no. Owen lets him know if hes going to offer more money to get rid of Jackie, hes not interested. He cares about Jackie. Nick doesnt believe it. He thinks Owen is only out for what Jackie can do for him. Owen tells Nick to let his mommy decide. Nick angrily grabs Owen by the collar and tells him to watch his tone. Nick calls Owen Jackies boy toy right now. Nick threatens him it will end soon and hell be out of the company. Owen isnt scared and tells Nick he cant get rid of him that easily.
Jackie walks up and catches the exchange between Nick and Owen. She tells Nick to stop bullying Owen. Owen turns to look at her.
Jackie tells Nick he was the one who wanted her to go out and find someone. Nick says a man not a boy. Jackie says Owen makes her happy. Nick tells Owen just make sure he does his job. Owen says he knows where he stands. Jackie is in charge. Nick looks unhappy. He tells his mother he has a meeting with the accountants. He leaves.
After Nick is gone, Owen walks over and locks the door. He tells Jackie she is the boss. He just takes orders. He sits on the edge of the desk and slowly unbuttons his shirt. He asks Jackie if she wants him to leave. Jackie watches with pleasure. She tells Owen absolutely not. Owen moves her to Nicks desk. She cant believe he plans to do it right here in Nicks office on his desk. Owen kisses her and lays her back to show her.
In his office, Eric is steaming. Bill Spencer is a bastard. He assures Stephanie all their workers are covered. Stephanie tells him she hopes hes right, because otherwise he could go to jail. Eric says this wont happen.
In his office, Bill works with Jared to find something on Eric. It all looks legitimate. He finally asks Jared to give him a name. Hell just Google it. Jared throws out a name. Bill finds it and reads the bio. He realizes the person is dead from a car accident on the Santa Monica Freeway years ago. Jared verifies its the same person. Bill thinks Eric had a sneaky undercover plan.
Eric and Stephanie still argue in his office. He tells her this isnt the first time her temper got them in trouble. Stephanie admits she was hurt. She thought when Eric came out of his coma, they would be together. Eric tells her this isnt an excuse.
Bill sits back with a pleased look. Eric is using the identity of dead US citizens for his illegal employees. Jared looks shocked. Bill announces either Eric sells him the company on his terms or he goes to jail for identity theft.
At Forrester, Eric yells at Stephanie she has no justification for what shes done. Stephanie rolls her eyes. Eric accuses her of trashing his wife and family on her webcasts. Stephanie has had enough. She tells Eric she just didnt think about how this would play out. Stephanies cell rings. Its Bill. He tells Stephanie Eric better be prepared to sell the company on his terms. Hes got everything he needs. Stephanie looks perplexed. Bill rubs it in by telling her shes no match for him. She holds the phone with a questioning look.
