At Bill (Don Diamont) and Katie’s (Heather Tom) home, Katie thanked Taylor (Hunter Tylo) for helping her reclaim her life. Bill and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) were shocked when they walked into the house and discovered Katie there. Katie, acting almost as if nothing had happened, ran into Bill’s arms saying, “I’m home.”
Katie almost immediately picked up on the weird vibe that Brooke and Bill were giving off. After some time, the duo finally broke the news about Stephanie's passing to Katie and Taylor. Filled with grief, Taylor recognized the ring Brooke was wearing as Stephanie’s.
At Forrester, Eric (John McCook) and Pam (Alley Mills) revealed to the family that Stephanie (Susan Flannery) had died. The children and grandchildren asked Eric if there was anything they could do. Eric told the family he wanted them to respect one another and value their contributions at Forrester.
