|“||I would like to say one thing. Laura, here, is a liar. I have test results that prove there is no trace of chemo in her body, even though she claims that she is undergoing treatment, okay? Right here. Take a look. It says it right there. She is a manipulative liar, and she's only doing it to break Liam and I apart because she is a monster.||”|
|— Fallon giving a speech about Laura Van Kirk|
BAD BLOOD – As Fallon prepares for the launch of Liam’s book, Liam’s mother returns to Atlanta with a shocking announcement that could derail Fallon’s plans with Liam. While Blake and Cristal partner up to pursue a nefarious new scheme, Jeff and Culhane get closer to exposing Blake for his illicit activities. 
The negative publicity surrounding the photo threatens Liam's book sales, forcing Fallon to confirm publicly that the book is about her and not Ashley. Liam's mother Laura appears and threatens to block the novel's publication unless Fallon breaks things off with Liam. He tries to broker a peace over dinner. Laura claims to be dying of cancer, but Fallon is suspicious. Jeff is behaving erratically thanks to Adam's toxic paint, and collapses in his office. Blake and Cristal succeed in getting gambling legalized in Atlanta, but Michael learns that they coerced politicians to secure the vote. Alexis discovers that Adam is responsible for her doctors making her look like Fallon. She confronts Adam about it, and warns Fallon not to cross him. Alexis informs Fallon that she is leaving for Europe to get more plastic surgery. Fallon has Laura's blood tested and proves she is lying, but Laura deflects the accusation and Liam is angry with Fallon. Sam and Anders learn that Adam leaked the photo, has been sleeping with Laura, and helped plan and execute her ruse. Laura is eventually forced to confess, and Liam softens to Fallon. Fallon plots revenge against Adam.

Fallon: (giving a speech) I would like to say one thing. Laura, here, is a liar. I have test results that prove there is no trace of chemo in her body, even though she claims that she is undergoing treatment, okay? Right here. Take a look. It says it right there. She is a manipulative liar, and she's only doing it to break Liam and I apart because she is a monster.
Anders: I had a discreet tech service give us full access, and as you can see, he's the one who e-mailed the photo to TMZ.
Fallon: Brother dearest is so dead.
Anders: I don't want to encourage fratricide, but it does get worse.
Cristal: Let's get to the part of Bonnie and Clyde they don't show on television.
Blake: Mm, that's my favorite part.
Fallon: Laura, you go ahead and file your lawsuit. It has zero legal merit, and I will slap you with so many countersuits that you will not see the outside of a courthouse for years.
Fallon to Alexis: You are the one on the right, in case you're confused. And if you think a pair of sunglasses and a dark lip will be enough for me to let this go, then your face isn't the problem, Mother; your brain is.
Blake to Alexis: Well, you are Fallon's mother. Wait, you are Fallon's mother, aren't you? It's getting hard to tell around here these days.
Blake to Alexis: You look fantastic for someone who just face-planted into a fireplace.
