Taylor tells Katie she can help her and asks her to let her do that. Katie says she doesn’t need her help. Taylor says and yet she is here in her office. Katie says she had problems when she first came in to see her but she is taking care of them. Taylor asks how. Katie says by providing for her son. Taylor says by leaving him with Bill and hoping Brooke will be a surrogate mother to him. She says that is her plan isn’t it. Bill and Brooke continue seeing Aspen. Brooke says this is just what he needed but Bill says what he needs isn’t the issue. He says it’s what his son needs and that is his mother.
Liam and Steffy look at the photos they took on their sightseeing in Aspen. Liam posts some pictures and Steffy asks him which ones he posted and asks if they were the ones of her screaming. Liam says he posted the good ones and laughs. Steffy says no he didn’t post those because she looked bad in them but Liam says she couldn’t look bad if she tried. Steffy smiles and says thank you before kissing him. They go back to looking over the baby and Liam asks Steffy if she thinks Will can sense anything about what is going on. Steffy says she hates to admit it but because Brooke has been there for Bill and the baby she doesn’t think he feels neglected at all. Liam nods and smiles and goes back to staring at Steffy.
Bill tells Brooke, as they prepare to go up in the hot air balloon that he has flown many times. Brooke says he’s full of surprises and calls him dollar Bill. Bill says in these parts they call him wild Bill. He asks her if she’s ready to fly and Brooke giggles and says let’s do this. Liam watches Steffy take care of the baby and tells her that she is getting better at this. She says yes she’s starting to get a little less afraid that Will will break making Liam laugh. Liam watches the baby and says it’s amazing that he’s so little and helpless. He says he thinks Will feels secure in her arms. Steffy says really and he nods. Steffy says she thinks so too. Liam says it’s good practice for the future before saying he’s totally kidding. He says someday though and Steffy laughs saying yes. She says he wasn’t doing so great in the diaper department though. Liam says yes but says she did great though. Steffy says next time it’s his turn and Liam looks to make excuses to get out of it making her laugh.
Taylor tells Katie that she can feel her pain and she can’t hide it. Katie says it’s been hard but she’s dealing with it. She says she is making a life for herself. Taylor asks her where she is staying but Katie won’t tell her. Taylor says she won’t tell anyone but Katie says she doesn’t need therapy. She says she is fine and happy but Taylor reminds her that she is not and that she is running away from her family and her child. Katie says she can’t be a mother to him. Taylor says she could be a mother, a very good mother if she could get a handle on her depression. Taylor says she’s helped a lot of women with postpartum depression. She says she’s a strong woman and she can get trough this and get her life back. Katie continues to look unsure and unhappy.
Steffy complements Brooke again and Liam says she’s not even hassling them. Steffy says yes that part is really weird making Liam laugh. He says maybe she’s accepting it but Steffy says she thinks she’ll wave the Hope flag in front of him nose before she leaves. Liam says he doesn’t think so because she seems pretty focused. He says this whole thing with Stephanie is weighing her down too. Steffy says it’s weighing on all of them. Liam says the party is coming up. Steffy says yes it’s right when the get back to L.A.
Steffy starts to talk about Stephanie and says her grandmother is such an exceptional woman. She says she is glad to be her namesake. She says maybe she can help keep a little bit of Stephanie in this world. Liam says she will and she says she hopes so. Liam sighs and says there is just so much going on right now. Steffy asks if Liam thinks Katie is going to leave Bill. Liam says she already has but Steffy asks permanently. She says she knows Katie loves Bill and says she can’t imagine him with anyone else. Liam says he can’t either but says where is she though.
Taylor gives Katie some water. Taylor asks her if she wants to take a seat. Katie says she knows she only wants to help her but she doesn’t need it. Taylor asks her what she needs. Katie says she needs to be by herself and as far away from Bill and the baby as she can get. Taylor says she feels inadequate as a mother and guilt and afraid for her and her baby. Katie looks away from her as she says that those are all classic symptoms of postpartum depression. Katie says she doesn’t have that but Taylor says a lot of women say the exact same thing.
Katie says she’s just not cut out to be a mother a lot of women are like that and she is one of them. Taylor asks if she has always felt like that even before she had the baby. Katie falls silent. Taylor says she went through a life changing experience and almost died in the process and that‘s nothing to be ashamed of. Katie says she’s not ashamed and says she’s doing things in the only way she knows how to. She says she wants her son to have a wonderful, fulfilling life and she can’t give that to him. She says someone else can though and she says she’s not changing her mind. Brooke and Bill take their balloon ride and enjoy the sights from above.
Liam talks about Brooke and Steffy getting close and she says the altitude must be getting to him. He says they used to be close and Steffy says that was a long time ago. She says she admires what Brooke is doing for Bill and his son but that is as far as it goes. Liam asks if it would be so bad if they got along. He says it would be a lot less drama but Steffy says the Logans thrive on drama. She says look at Katie who is the sanest of the bunch and what she has done. Liam says or so they thought. Steffy asks what could be going on with her and then says his poor father. Liam says if Katie doesn’t come back and looks worried but Steffy tells him not to worry about that. She says his dad survived without Katie but Liam says he didn’t have kids then. Steffy tells him his dad still has him and he has her. Liam hugs Steffy and nods holding her close.
Katie tries to assure Taylor that she is okay but Taylor says she’s in denial. She says she is throwing away her family and her marriage and says for what. She says she doesn’t think even Katie knows but Katie says she’s doing it for the fact that she is a terrible mother and cannot connect with her son. Taylor reminds her that she said she was doing it because she was afraid she was going to die and leave him motherless. Katie says that’s her reality. Taylor says so she’s going to refuse to live the days she has left for the fear she will die. She says that is ridiculous and tells Katie that she needs to stop this. She says if she doesn’t then her postpartum depression will turn into post partum psychosis and she will turn into a threat for herself and those around her. She says she knows she doesn’t want to hear that but that is her real reality. She asks her to let her help her but Katie doesn’t look like she is going to listen.
Bill and Brooke continue on their ride. Brooke says the view is amazing and Bill says it’s freedom and smiles. Steffy tells Liam that it’s so hard to leave Aspen isn’t it. Liam says so many memories. Steffy tells him he stole owes her that trip to Hawaii. Liam says oh my god that’s so high maintenance. Steffy says yes that’s her and tells him to get used to it. Liam smiles and leans in and kisses her before they continue to look at their pictures and think of their memories of Aspen.
Katie tells Taylor that she is not depressed and she doesn‘t have postpartum psychosis. She says she’s not a threat to anyone and that is what she is trying to avoid and moves to walk out. Taylor tells her she does not know what she is doing but Katie says she’s wrong and says she knows exactly what she is doing. Closing the door she stands outside and cries while he heart pounds hard within her chest. Bill and Brooke are shown enjoying themselves in Aspen at the same time.
