B&B Recap Written by WandaThomas and Caroline meet up on the rooftop and discuss how difficult it may be when they all meet and Ridge tells the others the truth about Douglas. She says she is sorry. She had no right to keep this from him that Douglas was his son. Thomas says it was Ridge that lied so he is the one that needs to own up to it. He does not blame Caroline. He knows she was only trying to protect her family. She says yes but deep down she knew it was wrong. And she is grateful that Thomas was there that night and she knows he would never do anything to hurt her. She knows he would never take advantage of her and now Ridge knows that too. They are interrupted by Veronica who needs Thomas to look over some proposals and wonders if they can talk about it after work. He says yeah, he will let her know. Caroline is surprised and asks if they are seeing each other. Thomas says it is not serious but like she said, life goes on. Ridge conducts the meeting and tells Rick that this is not about business, it is personal. And it wont take very long. He tells Eric, Rick and Steffy that the family is going through a few changes ..the marriage is all right but he wants them to be aware of the changes. He wants to tell them before someone else does. Straight and to the point Ridge says Douglas is not his. He loves him and will raise him but he is not his son. They are all shocked; Rick even laughs a little to hear that the father is Thomas. Deacon knocks on Quinns door. She throws open the door, obviously thinking of Eric and is surprised to see Deacon who comes in and wants to make himself at home. He scoffs when she tells him she is seeing Eric. He does not believe they are dating. She says not dating but they are seeing each other. She says no one is to know about it so keep his big blabber mouth shut. She just wanted to tell him so maybe he would quit coming around or maybe just to see the look on his face. He is amused and she adds she cannot believe that Eric is even talking to her much less kissing her. He chuckles ..the patriarch and the piranha. She tells him not to breathe a word of this or she will kill him and he knows it. Rick quizzes Ridge more, even gets a little joy out of saying Caroline was with Thomas. Ridge says yes, they were broken up at the time. It was his fault as he did not think he could give her the life that she wanted. They married and then found out she was pregnant, and he knew he could not be the father as he had the vasectomy in Paris, and it could not be reversed. Thomas has known for a while. Steffy tells him that Caroline was in the house the whole while she was having Thomass child. Rick says Ridge stole his son from him. Ridge says a misunderstanding seems too small a word but that is what it was and he wanted to protect his wife and he will continue to protect her. So when this comes out to the press, and he knows it will, he wants to take the hit for it, no one else. Douglas is the innocent party in this. Meeting over.
Rick stands up and says no way. Ridge cannot drop a bombshell like that and just dismiss them. The press will have a feeding frenzy with this. He cannot just sweep this under the rug ..this is how he protects his family and the business? He says he knew Ridge had some sort of huge secret that would rock this company to the core and yet he thought he would get away with it. Eric says this is no time to pass judgment. Families should stick together. Steffy tells Rick this does not affect him. Rick says if it affects the company then it does. He can already see the tabloid scandal of the year. Ridge says he wont let his family be slandered. Eric tries to restrain Rick and says Ridge and Caroline need to figure this out for themselves. Rick wants to know who is going to run the company while they do. When Ridge speaks up Rick says no, there is a morality clause at stake here. He wanted to keep this a secret but now he is going to have to pay. Deacon accuses Quinn of trying to get back at Steffy by canoodling with her grandfather. Quinn reminds him that it might be Eric that is using her but she definitely thinks not, she feels that spark. And he likes bad girls. Stephanie was no pussy cat and then there was that Sheila Carter gal. So if Eric accepts her maybe everybody else will. All she wants is to be accepted. It will transform her life. Eric tells Rick that he is getting ahead of himself. Rick says no, this scandal will bring attention and diminish their line. He does not want to toot his own horn but one more scandal like this and Ridge is out so he needs to step down. They need to make a change fast otherwise they will have every reporter in town camped outside their offices. Steffy says she is President so if anyone else should be CEO it is her. Eric speaks up and says he has not been as involved lately as he should be. This is going to take more thought so when he can muster that up he will let them know. Rick tells Ridge that his reign as king is over; he went too far. Now he is going down.
