B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Brooke looks up from the fountain/pond area and spies Ridge; he walks toward her. They embrace and he kisses her. She can hardly believe her eyes are not deceiving her. She wants to know about the wedding and he says it never happened. Thomas lied about what happened on the island. There was nothing sexual; Thomas made all of that up. Brooke doesn’t understand why he would do that. Ridge says because his grandmother got to him. He kisses her again and says he should never have doubted her or walked away. Stephanie comes back into the house and tells Taylor that she sent everyone home. Taylor tells Thomas that he can go too. She doesn’t wish to talk to anyone. Stephanie speaks up and says it was not Thomas’s fault. He wanted to tell Taylor the truth. Taylor laments that she can’t comprehend that her best friend and her son did this to her. They know how long she has waited and how much this wedding meant to her. She doesn’t even want to talk or see either one of them now. Thomas leaves as he tells his grandmother that he wanted to confess to Taylor, but Stephanie had stabbed him in the back. Stephanie wants to explain to Taylor. Thomas is a good and decent man and she realizes she has placed him in a terrible position. Every time he wanted to come and tell her the truth Stephanie talked him out of it. Taylor rants that she used her grandson, and for nothing. Stephanie is still the same manipulative, scheming, controlling person she’s always been, nothing has changed. Stephanie continues that Thomas was always uncomfortable with this, but she convinced him it was okay. The lie had nothing to do with Taylor’s marriage. And once he left Brooke behind, she thought Ridge would understand that Taylor was the only choice for him. Taylor says that is a good sales pitch, but not the truth. Taylor tells Stephanie not to make her culpable too for this lie even though she wanted to believe it. It was all Stephanie who did this. She takes off her ring and tries to get Stephanie to take it back. She says the next time Stephanie wants to do her a favor, “don’t!” She storms out.

Thomas goes back to the guest house and finds Dayzee still there. She’s obviously disgusted with him. She points out that he was going to let his mother walk down the aisle, all based on his lie. He had told Dayzee the truth had to come out, then refused to say one single word to anybody else. He says he thought she was not going to judge him. She relays that she always likes to give the other person the benefit of the doubt, to make up for their mistakes. He had his chance. He was with his mom before the ceremony. He could have said something then. He made his choice, but it was the wrong one. She thought he was better than that. He wasn’t thinking about his mom; he was thinking about the stocks that Stephanie was going to give him. He denies that and says he can explain everything, only not here. She says that won’t work; just jumping on his jet and opening bottles of champagne and leaving the real world behind, no thank you. She realizes telling the truth would be hard; the right decisions almost always are. He’s not a stand-up guy after all; he caved. He stammers that he knows he was weak and wrong, but he let his grandmother talk him into this. He grabs her and says he needs her in his life….her strength and goodness. He needs somebody to pull him out of the quicksand. She pulls away and says it is not her; he will have to get himself out of this one. He says his grandmother finally confessed, no one is deceiving anyone now. It is over. She lets him kiss her and then says, “yes it is.” Brooke clings to Ridge as he tells her how beautiful she is and there is no way he could live his days without her…..that giggle, that amazing smile. There is never a day he could live without her. They are going to grow old together, and hold hands, watch the sunset on the beach. He is hers forever. Donna, Katie and Stephen are all concerned until Brooke and Ridge finally come in and explain the wedding is off and Ridge is home to stay. Of course R.J. is happy. Thomas walks in on Brooke and Ridge. Ridge gets up and says he thinks Thomas must have something to tell Brooke. Brooke says she has something to tell Thomas first. He looks at her as she explains that when he told her that he remembered, she believed him, but he lied. He knew what it was doing to Brooke, but it still didn’t matter. She says she gave so much to him. She supported him and was there for him when nobody else was. They had a special bond. She cared about him and thought he cared for her too. She doesn’t understand how he could save her life on the island and be so strong if he was going to do this to her now.
