Eric has to admit that it will take some getting used to Brooke working here at Spencer. Katie knows that will only happen if Brooke accepts the offer. Eric is unsure how he feels about this. Brooke has been a part of the company for such a long time. He isnt sure he likes the idea of the company not having Brooke in it. She hasnt been herself in a long time. Not since everything the two of them put each other through. Eric feels that it is very nice of Katie to do this for Brooke. This might be exactly what Brooke needs.
Liam doesnt think that Ivy needs to leave. Ivy does. She is to in love with him to stay.
Caroline asks Wyatt if he really proposed. Wyatt sighs and says that he did. Caroline starts jumping up and down and congratulates him. She runs over and hugs him. Caroline thinks that it is so exciting. She looks at the ring and asks why it is not on her finger. Wyatt explains that she would rather be with Liam instead.
Brooke tells Bill to go. Bill cannot believe she just kissed him. Brooke says that is why she cannot work with him so he has to go. Bill is not going yet. Brooke reminds him that he has a child with Katie. She wanted him to be with Katie. She begs him to just go to Katie.
Eric feels like the timing of this job offer couldnt be more perfect. Katie asks why. Eric points out that it is New Years Eve. Katie agrees. It is a time of fresh starts and resolutions. She spent last year putting her house in order. She is stronger than ever with Bill. This year she plans to spend time putting the other part of her family in order. She doesnt want Brooke to ever feel isolated again.
Bill wants Brooke to talk to him. Brooke cannot take the job. There is no need to prolong the conversation. Bill asks her what is going on. Brooke thinks that it is obvious. Bill tells her if she isnt going to take the job it shouldnt be because of him. He wonders what she plans to do if she plans to hide from him the rest of her life. Brooke will continue to give him pleasantries. Bill asks if she plans to just stay locked away in here not having a passion at work or in her personal life. He knows that she is a woman who needs passion. She thrives on it. Brooke doesnt want him to worry about her. She starts crying and hugs him.
Caroline knows that Ivy doesnt want Liam. At least not anymore. Wyatt says that it turns out feelings for Liam dont go away that easily. Caroline asks if she just admitted this to him when he proposed. Wyatt tells her that Quinn had to force it out of her when he proposed. Caroline is baffled that Quinn was there. Wyatt tells her that Liam and Steffy were there too. It was rather embarrassing. He guesses in 20 or 30 years he could laugh about it.
Liam just thinks that it is crazy to just take off to Australia. A few weeks from now she isnt going to feel the same way. She needs to give it some time. Not do anything rash. Ivy is doing this. LA is not an option for her anymore. Liam says ok and that he will miss her. He hugs her. Steffy watch from outside and runs away. Ivy leaves. Liam sits down against the desk and Steffy walks in. Steffy has to say good rid. Liam assumes she heard and says that she is leaving. Steffy knows even though he still loves her. She heard.
Caroline asks if she can get Wyatt anything. Wyatt would like the number of a girl that has never met Liam. That would be nice. Caroline was thinking more like tea. She could also get him some whiskey but she cannot join in. She could listen to him bad mouth Ivy. Wyatt thought that Ivy was the one. He was ready to start a life with her and all along she wanted Liam.
Steffy doesnt think that he should have said that to Ivy. Liam doesnt want her to take him out of context. Steffy feels that he was leading her on. Liam doesnt think that at all. Steffy says that it sounds like he was looking for a plan b. Liam doesnt think that is fair. Steffy tells him to stop sending mixed signals to Ivy. Liam is with Steffy. He admits that. There is no mixed signals. Steffy knows that but wonders if Ivy still knows that. Liam was just trying to give Ivy a little hope because it was something she needed to hear. Steffy believes he was leading her on. Giving false hope to a woman who just screwed over his brother is not ok. He is just validating her awful behavior. That is a slap in Wyatts face. She asks how he could possibly think that is ok.
Ivy walks into the Forrester Mansion and Eric asks where she is going. Ivy is going upstairs to pack. Eric assumes she is moving to Wyatts house. Ivy is going back to Australia.
Bill had no idea Brooke still had these feelings. Brooke was trying to hide them. She was hoping that if she waited long enough, they would disappear. She has to put what they had behind her. There really is no other option. She has to force herself to forget. She has to forget what it was like to be with him. She begs him to forget what she has said here. Bill will because he is married to her sister. Katie walks in and asks why Brooke is crying. Brooke says it is nothing. Katie knows that it is something because she is crying. Bill admits that it something. He came here to try to get Brooke commit to the company and take the job. Katie thinks that is a good thing. She doesnt want her to feel pressured. Bill explains that Brooke has made a choice. She would like to accept but she cant. Katie doesnt understand and asks why Brooke doesnt want to work with her and Bill.
Caroline thought that Ivy was smart. She wonders if it was just the accent. Wyatt laughs. He knows she is very smart. Caroline doesnt think that she is about men because she didnt want Wyatt. Wyatt is a great guy. She is going to be kicking herself when she comes to her senses.
Ivy made a mess of things. That is pretty the gist of things. At least she can admit that. Not everyone around here is as self-aware. Eric wonders what she means. Ivy just wishes that Steffy would take some accountability for her part in all of this. When she came back from Paris her relationship with Liam just went boom. It was done. She was supposed to repress all her feeling and just move on. She cant help but wonder what her life would be like if she had just stayed gone. Her life, Liams Wyatts, even Alys. Everyone has suffered and she did come back. That means that unfortunately she has to leave.
Liam doesnt want to argue with her. Steffy doesnt either. She is not mad at him. Liam thinks it sounds like it. Steffy is not thrilled with what he said. She is upset with Ivy. She only wants Wyatt for the moment but Liams available. She asks if he realizes how horrible that is. Liam admits that it is. He guesses that maybe she is right. Maybe he should have spoken up. He just was hoping that Ivy would come to her senses. He was trying to stay out of it. Liam believes that what they need to do is both stay out of it. Especially with Ivy moving back to Australia. Steffy asks why he is saying that. Liam is trying to say that she doesnt need to get all up in Ivys face and tell her how bad she treated Wyatt. Steffy doesnt think she cares about how bad she treated Wyatt. She only cares about herself. Liam knows that obviously isnt true. Steffy remembers she also cares about Liam. Her guiding compass. She knows that is what Ivy said after she manipulated the L word out of him. It is pathetic. They are engaged and she is trying to squeeze every bit of attention out of him before she goes to Australia. Steffy doesnt understand why he is treating her so well. Liam admits that Ivy has made bad choices but she is still important to him. He doesnt think that it is wrong to acknowledge that before she leaves. Steffy doesnt want to be anywhere near Ivy unless it is to help her pack. Liam doesnt even want her to think about it.
Ivy is in her bedroom and looks at a necklace. She thinks about kissing Liam and starts to zip up her luggage.
Steffy walks into the Forrester Mansion and says hello to Eric. He assumes that she is here to see Ivy. Steffy is here to see if she is leaving. Eric explains that she is upstairs packing. Eric is sorry it has come to this. He asks if she is going to be ok or is he going to have to stay and chaperone them. Steffy is President of Forrester and she is always watching out. Eric knows she is and leaves.
Wyatt knows that it is New Years Eve. Caroline should go be with Ridge. Caroline will later. Right now she is concerned about her cousin. Wyatt asks what they are doing later and if they need a third wheel. Caroline tells him absolutely. It wasnt like they were going to go out. Wyatt was kidding. He isnt going to crash her first New Years as a married couple. Caroline promises that he is more than welcome too. Wyatt knows and thanks her. Caroline wants him to think about how this time next year he is going to be sipping champagne with another girl. Caroline knows it. He is an incredible guy and there is a girl out there who deserves him. The two hug.
Steffy walks up the staircase of the mansion. Ivy walks down. Steffy is glad she packed. Ivy assumes she heard. Steffy heard a lot. Ivy has a flight to catch. Steffy wants her to admit she was wrong hurting Wyatt. Ivy has admitted to screwing up and wishes Steffy would admit her part in this. Steffy asks what she is talking about. Ivy reminds her she moved back and targeted Liam. Steffy cannot believe this. Steffy guesses that is one way to look at it. Steffy tells her not to come back. She shouldnt text or call Liam. Ivy isnt going to listen to her. Steffy has been very patient with her. Enough is enough. She has cheated on Wyatt. She doesnt need to come back to LA. Ivy is gone. She doesnt have to worry about her anymore. Ivy accidently trips all by herself downstairs. Steffy screams her name. When Ivy drops to the bottom of the stairs Liam walks in and runs over to Ivy. Steffy says Liams name. He looks up at her and is furious.
Katie was really hoping that Brooke would take the job. It could have been something she was really excited about. Them working together. Katie is missing something here. She wonders why Brooke would not want that. Brooke does but some things are impossible. Bill knows that leaving Forrester would be hard for her. They will be here for her. Katie and him will help her make her transition. Katie needs her. Liam is practically working full time at Forrester. They need a new editor for Eye on Fashion. Brooke has practically spent her whole life in fashion. No one else is better for the position. Someone with Brookes voice would be amazing. Brooke is flattered. Katie needs her. This is about all of them. Katie wants her in her life. This would be amazing. They could go on lunches. Katie doesnt know what she said to Bill but she needs to reconsider. Brooke says ok. Katie is glad. They hug. Brooke smiles at Bill. He looks a little worried.
