Bill warns that if he gives Deacon an opening, he will exploit it. Liam realizes that Deacon is trying to polarize everyone. Huffing, Bill assumes he wants him to have a word with Deacon. Hope may make up her own mind, but that doesn’t mean he needs to agree with her. Bill senses that his son’s marriage is experiencing serious friction.

Liam says his marriage will be fine but things are difficult. Bill can’t see why. He made a promise to protect Hope and the children and he needs to do whatever he has to to keep Deacon away. It means a lot to Liam that he can come to him with this. Unfortunately, Hope feels the same way about Deacon.

It seems to the kids that Brooke has already let Deacon in. Steffy doesn’t want to be a drag but reminds everyone of how dodgy Brooke’s history is. It’s clear that she will always be angry that Taylor lost him to Brooke. The kids insist that Deacon isn’t the only problem, Brooke is too. Unlike Taylor who always wanted the best for him. She wonders when he will stop justifying the whims of the Logan women. Steffy tells him to come home to his other family and hugs him.
