life. She promises to explain everything later. After he walks away, she

believes her, but then turns and asks Stefano if he knew. Stefano claims he
was in the dark. When they go home, Kate tells her husband that Will will
find out that he knew all along. If she loses her grandson because of him,
she's walking out the door and never coming back. He reminds her that he's
kept her secrets and assures her that he will make sure Will is not
alienated from them. They throw warnings around and she tells him he will
pay if he screws this up. Over at the pub, Caroline catches Will on the
