B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge tells Brooke and Steffy that these new designs are still very risky. The Milan showing is just a few days away and no one should get a leak of this. Brooke feels badly since her position with her sister is built on trust. Katie tells Jarrett that they have never previewed their collection, but this is a change. She wants his honest, objective opinion. He can’t believe what he is seeing; that Eric and Ridge designed this! Marcus tells Ridge and Brooke that he delivered the designs to Katie. He hopes he did nothing wrong. Ridge says no, but it means that Katie still may have some doubts. Katie asks Jarrett if the designs are as bad as she thinks. He says it is worse. That does it; she is sure they are trying to sabotage their own collection. He doesn’t believe her sisters would knowingly deceive her, so it must mean that Eric thinks these are great designs, a new future. Nick tells Sandy that she will get her justice. He will see to it. She says all those backlogs are unacceptable; something has to be done. She gives credit to Nick. Without him, she would still be clueless. Now she has some hope and she can never thank him enough for that. Nick is upbeat. He tells Sandy with some luck the DNA results will come back and they will find her sicko. He tells her that he’d like to tell Bridget. It doesn’t feel right to keep all of this from her. She gets him to hold off for now until they do or do not get the results. Bridget pops in and thinks Sandy and Nick were pretty intense and then Sandy just ran off. He tells her to stop worrying; something very positive is happening.

Katie calls Brooke and tells her to drop everything and come to her office. Ridge knows what this means and asks Brooke how she is going to handle this. Ridge puts himself to blame. He doesn’t want the sisters to be torn apart; no collection is worth that. Katie confronts Brooke and tells her that family is more important to her; she even asked Bill to give the company back to the Forrester’s. But after they did not want Bill around for the holidays, she realizes just how far that rift is. She needed another opinion for Eric and Ridge’s designs. Steffy is sure that Katie won’t guilt trip Brooke and get her to say more than she should. Katie gives Brooke a pretty stern preaching that Bill did nothing wrong. He paid top dollar for the company and that might hurt Eric and Ridge, but he did nothing wrong. She is going to ask Brooke one more time for the truth. She wants to know if the DARE line is legitimate. She wants to know that they all, especially Brooke and Donna, are being honest or are they betraying her. Is this a joke with her as the punch line?
