B&B Recap Written by WandaStephanie sits in Thornes office, ready to give him the party invitation. Smiling, she opens an old tin box with THORNE carved on the cover. Thorne walks in catching her looking at a little boys pix of his family. They chuckle over some old merit badges. He wonders if she is finally getting rid of some of his things. He sees the invite and she tells him to open it. It starts with My sweet son. It only takes a moment for him to realize what this is and tears well up. A moment of silent truth passes between them. His tears begin to flow and she puts her arm around him and sweetly says she is at peace with this. He admits he will never find peace with this. There must be something more they can do. She says there is, but she is not going to do it. Shes had a great life and she has only one regret. Its that Thorne never believed that she loved him as much as she does Ridge. She does and she hopes he can accept that now. She cradles his head on her shoulder. Caroline is in the office with Rick. Shes on the phone telling the delivery man to put the flowers in her office as usual. She hopes the sender will stop doing his soon. Rick mocks with the Prince Charming sending Im sorry, come back to me bouquets. He adds that Thomas cant believe that she dumped him, the up and coming Forrester CEO, for a second stringer. She assures him he is not a second stringer, and he is a very important part of this company. He adds ..and hers. They kiss several times, unaware that Thomas is watching from the doorway as he is delivering some papers to Rick. He dumps the papers on the door and huffs off. Eric embraces Brooke and states that he guesses she had no idea why Stephanie wished to see her and about this party. Brooke says no; she thought it had something to do with Ridge. He says Stephanie is on her way to see Thorne now. He will be the hardest of all the children to hear Stephanies news ..the son that she loves but he always felt second-best to the first born. He reminds Brooke that Ridge will be back. His leave is only temporary. He will need Brooke more than ever especially with Stephanie gone. He even hints that he will be home for Stephanies party; all her children will be there.
Rick tells Caroline to remind him to thank his royal majesty for throwing him out the window and helping her come back to Rick. Thorne and Stephanie continue to look inside his souvenir box. They giggle over the photo of him in the powder blue leisure suit for his prom. He didnt know better at the time. Stephanie says she did almost have a stroke when she found out he was having an affair with Brooke. But she lived for another day and it only shows to go ya how wrong you can be about a person. Rick laments to Caroline that he knows how much honesty means to her, and he has not been. Slowly he reveals how he created a lie that hes not proud of the one that said Liam and Steffy made out the night at the party before his and Hopes marriage, but all they did was have too much to drink and partied. Caroline is disappointed that he took such drastic measures to lie that caused Liam and Hope to break up, but says she understands that he felt strongly that Hope not marry Liam; that he was wrong for her. He hopes this is not going to be a deal breaker. He wonders if she will tell Liam or Hope. She says that is up to him and somehow she knows he will do the right thing as that is the kind of guy she thinks he is. Thomas barges into Erics office and more or less dismisses Brooke, saying he has some ideas to run past his dad. Quickly he states that he wants to take the company in a new direction, a sexier, younger, edgier, urban direction that fits in more with todays society at a more affordable price. Now that he is CEO he wants to move on this sooner rather than later. Brooke tells him that he needs to slow down a bit, but he gets a phone call and breezes out the door before they are finished. Brooke tells Eric that Thomass love life is on the skids lately so maybe he is over-compensating for it with his work. Stephanie and Thorne continue to look through the box his report cards with all As, the plaque when he was named President of Forrester for a brief time. She says she looks at him now and sees what a wonderful man he has become; one that she is so proud of. He turns his tears into a happy face and they laugh that Brooke has married every man in the family so the worst is over. Hes not sure how he can carry on although without Stephanie. Hes always relied on her support and her strength. As his tears fall, she cradles him tightly in her arms and says she loves him so. He says he knows.
