B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge tells Brooke that her leaving Forrester doesn’t take any sense. She doesn’t want him to fight her on this. He says he has to fight her because he knows something else is going on. She sees he won’t let up so she says she will tell him. It is time that he and Steffy run the company. After all she got it back from Bill Spencer and handed it to him. He thinks this is too bizarre that she is giving up as she has never done that before. He thinks it has something to do with Stephanie and Steffy hounding her. She says she only wants him to be happy, no more drama. And that’s all it will ever be if she stays. He tells her that she belongs at Forrester. He knows she doesn’t want to leave and he will not let her go. She continues to say that she has to leave. She needs peace so she begs him to let her go. Oliver holds Hope and tells her that he thinks she needs to call the recruiter back and tell her that she will accept the scholarship. She doesn’t understand why he’s done this 180. He tries to explain that sometime things happen that you don’t anticipate and life takes you in a very different direction and this is one of those times. He tells her that he loves her, but he doesn’t ever want that love to hold her back. He knows what this college will mean to her future for the rest of her life. He’d do anything for her even if it hurt like hell as long as he knew it was best for her. She guesses that he is trying to protect her by keeping her away from Steffy. He replies that it’s not running away, but running toward something. He says he was so sure that he bought tickets already to take her to Boston. Everything is going to be okay; he won’t love her any less when he is away from her. She says that she will have to talk to her parents first, especially her mother who will take this pretty hard. Nick is tying knots in a rope when Jackie comes aboard. She quotes “they say when you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on”. He advises her that his marriage is over and he’s dealing with it and moving on. He advises her that she should watch and take note as she will have to deal with the very same thing very soon. Nothing would make him happier. She says she has no intention of divorcing her husband. They have worked through that night and they will continue to work through the rest of it too. He tells her that she better open her eyes. He’s going to leave her for Bridget and she knows it. Bridget walks down the stairs of her loft and finds Owen exercising in his living room. She smiles and tells him not to stop, exercising is important. He tells her yeah especially her now that she is pregnant. She claims that she is trying to do everything right. She needs some advice now and came down to talk to his wife. Owen asks her not to leave. He’d be happy to look over the baby catalogue with her…unless she is uncomfortable being there alone with him.

Thomas stops in to see Steffy and she reveals there is no Hope For The Future. This time tomorrow the last of the Logans should be gone. Nick lashes out at Jackie that Owen is a taker. He understands why she thinks Owen loves her. He should. Thanks to her he’s rich, he’s famous, he’s respected, he has a career and a credit rating and nobody can take that away from him. But he has a commitment to this kid and that is just going to grow just like his commitment to Bridget. He’s a simple guy. He wants what he wants and he finds out who has it and he falls in love in order to get it. Nick says Bridget is going to need someone too so that is why he told her to go for it. He realizes his mother thought this was her last stop but it’s Owen’s first. Life is just beginning for him and it will be with Bridget and their baby so Jackie better star facing that fact. She’s livid. She says she can take him lashing out at her because she knows he’s in pain, but she is not going to let him diminish what she and Owen have. It is very real, and what he said about Owen and Bridget, the less said the better. Owen asks Bridget if she has told anybody that he’s the father of the baby. She confesses she has only told her mother. She hasn’t had the nerve to tell her dad or the rest of the family yet. She’s probably the last person that anyone would think this would happen to. He hugs her and tells her that she is handling it like any strong woman would. Brooke tells Ridge that she’s just been through so much lately with her mother’s death and her father in jail. Of course she doesn’t want to leave Forrester but she asks him to please not make her explain it anymore. This is something she has to do. She really just wants and needs his support on this. He says of course she has that. Her commitment as a wife and mother, always putting other people’s needs first….that’s the part of her that he knows so well and he knows that is why she is leaving. The phone rings and it’s Steffy. He tells her it is not a good time. He gets permission from Brooke to tell Steffy the news that Brooke is leaving Forrester. Thorne calls so while Ridge talks to him, he hands the phone to Brooke as Steffy wishes to speak to her. Steffy tells her that for tomorrow she will have everybody in her dad’s office and Brooke can make her announcement then…but remember that Hope has to be out too. She doesn’t expect Brooke to understand but this is what she needs. The phone goes dead……Brooke picks up the Victory photo and hugs it to her chest.
