She thinks maybe seeing his daughter will help. Holden shows up and even thanks Dusty for being there for Meg. But he reminds him that he’s there now, so Dusty shouldn’t be hanging around. Dusty reminds Josie that she is not to tell Paul that Meg had her baby. Josie thinks it might help as Paul is not seeing things too clearly right now. Dusty tells her that he will do whatever it takes to protect both Meg and her baby. She does not need to be worrying about Paul right now. Barbara asks Josie to go back in Paul’s room. She doesn’t have to pretend, but just sit there and listen as Paul is very agitated and wants to see Jennifer again. Barbara is delighted to see her new granddaughter. She tells Dusty that she does not want him to use this baby as a substitute for Johnny. Paul apologizes to Jennifer/Josie and for keeping her baby from her. Eliza cries outside in the hallway and Paul thinks it is Jennifer’s baby. Dusty reminds Josie again that she is to stay with Paul as he doesn’t want Paul to even know Meg is in the hospital. However, Paul begs Jennifer/Josie to take him to Meg. He is sure that baby is hers and he intends to see her. Meg is surprised to see him. He claims he is okay; just had to see his daughter. He sits on the bed and Meg introduces Eliza to her daddy. Dusty busts in and tells Paul to keep away from the baby. Paul says that all is fine; Jennifer is back so Dusty has her again. They can all live peacefully. Barbara convinces him to go back to his room. He goes into a rage again and they have to sedate him. Dusty admonishes Josie for letting it happen that Paul could go into Meg’s room. He says he trusted her, and he won’t make that mistake again. Barbara tells Josie she knows it was difficult for her today and she is very appreciative. Josie’s last look is seeing Dusty in with Meg and the baby and the hard look he gives her.

Lily is upset that all of this is happening to Jade. Luke even took off. She has no idea where he is. Bonnie says that the Miami police are playing hardball and they could keep Jade for 25 years. Maybe Derek could help find Robby through his contacts, but the trouble will be to even get Derek to agree to that since he doesn’t want to admit he could be Jade’s father. Lily tells Jade that these charges are serious, but they are going to find a way to fight them. Bonnie relays all the facts to Derek and she wants his help. He reminds her that he left his past in Florida. She informs him that if there is even 1% of a chance he could be Jade’s father, he needs to do this to live with himself. Derek refuses, so Lily pitches in and pleads with him that Jade needs him. Whether Jade is his daughter or not, what would Rose want him to do? He agrees but tells them he only wants to be the hired investigator. No one is to mention he knew Rose or could be Jade’s father. Jade doesn’t like the way he keeps looking at her, like she’s some crazed killer. She’s defensive, but Derek manages to get a few answers out of her and he says he will look into it. Holden re-assures Jade that she is family and they will do all they can for her. She’s like to be out by Christmas. Bonnie appreciates what Derek is doing. He comments he is only doing it for Rose and for Bonnie, not Jade. He has a bad vibe about her. Lily thanks Holden for supporting her tonight with Jade. She doesn't know what she would do without him?

B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Cuddling before the fireplace, Ridge asks Brooke just to stay with him. She realizes the days ahead are going to be hard for Stephanie and the others. She intends to ask Rick to step down as President. Ridge thinks that is a start, but he wants something else. He doesn’t want Rick behind bars, but he does not want to see him, be around him at all. He wants her to send Rick back to Paris. He wants his life back with her. Rick has caused too much damage since he has returned from Paris. Rick won’t accept it from Ridge, but he will from Brooke. Rick shows up at Stephanie’s. She says he is not welcome. He comes in anyway. He proceeds to tell her that his actions aren’t any worse than the abuse she gave his father and others over the years. She quips that at least they are still alive and breathing. She tells him that he will wake up every day of his life and know that young girl will never wake up again. Eric is shocked to hear Owen tell him about the monitor and then Thorne admits it. He did it for his mother. Eric calls the jet about to leave with Donna. He tells Thorne to have the decency not to tell Stephanie. He will talk with her himself. Eric surprises a glum Donna by showing up on the jet. He apologizes and hopes that she can forgive him. It won’t come overnight, but he loves her and wants her as his wife again. Love him again, he asks. She cries with joy.

Rick tells Brooke that he saw Stephanie and he thinks she is going to accept things as is and not press charges. Brooke knows Stephanie is doing it for Ridge. He’s stunned when Brooke tells him that she thinks this is a reasonable request considering – she wants him to give up the Presidency and if he’d like even move back to Paris with his old job. He thinks his mother must see him as Stephanie does – as a killer. So her answer is just to ship him out of town. She claims it will give time for all to heal. Rick sees it as yet once again, her choosing between him and Ridge and she always chooses Ridge. She doesn’t think it is so much to ask that others have compassion right now for Ridge……go to Paris, make a life for himself……do it for her.
