Episode # 7679 ~ Ridge and Eric share a loving father-son moment; the first since Eric lashed out at Ridge for his betrayal with Quinn; an emotional Brooke forces Bill to face the fact that he must suffer the consequences for his heartless actions.
Provided By SuzanneBill: Brooke, don't do this. I know that you're angry and disappointed in me, and I don't blame you. But you're not ready to give up on our marriage.
Brooke: Are you the man i married, bill? Could the man I pledged my life to do the things that you've done?
Bill: I vowed that I would be here for you, and that hasn't changed. I'm not going anywhere. We can get through this together. If you need more time, then take it. But don't take off your ring.
Brooke: Stephanie's ring.
Ridge: Will you marry me?
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
[ Knock on door ]
Eric: I want to talk.
Ridge: Is everything okay?
Eric: No. I want to set something straight, and I've had something on my mind. I can't shake it. When you came to my hotel to see me, you came out of... guilt... out of concern. I was already furious with you. And then you had the temerity, you had the nerve, to suggest i go home and be with my wife. I found that very condescending and patronizing, and so I told you that you weren't my son anymore. I wanted to hurt you, ridge. I wanted you to feel the same things I was feeling about this betrayal of yours, and so I... I lashed out. What I said was hurtful, and it was untrue. You're every bit my son. There's nothing I could say that can ever change that.
Katie: You know...
Katie: ...When you said you wanted to come over, I thought that you had found out something about bill.
Wyatt: No. I n-- I never even saw him, actually.
Katie: So, you don't know anything more?
Wyatt: Well, uh...
[ Sighs ] I-I did find out a little tidbit of information. Apparently, my brother bought the spectra building from C.J. For $50 million and gave it to sally as a gift.
Katie: [ Scoffs ] Are you kidding me?
Wyatt: That was my reaction.
Katie: As a gift?
Wyatt: Yeah. And nobody knows about it. I-I-I just -- I just don't understand how he's getting away with this. I don't understand how dad is not, like, doing anything to stop it.
Katie: Well, he might be a little preoccupied. My sister called me today, and, apparently, brooke and bill are separated.
Wyatt: Brooke walked out? Why?
Katie: [ Sighs ] I don't know. She really wouldn't tell me. She said she had things to figure out, but I don't know what that means.
Wyatt: [ Sighs ] I mean, you think it has something to do with what's going on between liam and dad?
Katie: Well, I think it certainly has something to do with bill. Liam, I don't know, but it seems like all of these things have to be connected somehow. Everyone's acting so strangely. I mean, bill leaving the company and putting liam in charge, the separation...
Wyatt: Not to mention liam's $50 million gift to sally.
Katie: Not to mention that. I don't know how it happened, but something is going on. Brooke is devastated.
Eric: All my life, everything I've ever done has been for the strength of our family.
Ridge: But everything you said in the hotel room, everything you said about me, is true.
Eric: No, it wasn'T. I'm sorry.
Ridge: What I did to you --
Eric: Look, son, I don't want to rehash any of this. I want us to move past this.
Ridge: That's -- that's all i ever wanted. I want for you and quinn to be happy.
Eric: Well, I can't be completely happy... while our family's broken like this, and it is broken... when there's this bad blood between us. I want to make our family whole again, son.
Ridge: I want that, too.
Eric: So, we're all right?
Ridge: Yeah, dad. We're -- we're okay.
Bill: I let my ego override my judgment.
Brooke: You committed a crime, bill!
Bill: Ordering the fire at spectra was reckless. It was wrong. But it doesn't change our devotion to each other. It doesn't change the words that we said -- "for better or worse," brooke. Yes, what I did was -- it was greedy. It was out of control. It was selfish. But I didn't break my vows to you. And I'm not gonna let you break yours. When I put that ring on your finger, it was forever.
Wyatt: I mean, dad obviously did something bad enough to make brooke want to leave.
Katie: She can't even talk about it.
[ Sighs ] It just doesn't seem possible.
Wyatt: Oh, yeah. Like dad leaving spencer is possible, leaving his life's work, or putting my tree-hugging brother in charge?
Katie: Well, clearly, he is an idiot.
Wyatt: Yeah, I know. Thank you.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Wyatt: Okay. You and I...
Wyatt: ...Are not being... so upfront about what's going on here, either, but, "a," it's none of their business, and, "b," it feels like there's a lot going on that we don't know about.
Katie: Well, and maybe it's been going on for a while and we just are finding out about it. I mean, have I really missed all the signs?
Wyatt: Well, we have been a little preoccupied.
Katie: Yes, that's true. But I am not completely oblivious. I mean, I-I-I work with brooke. I see her at the office.
Wyatt: Right, at the office. Have you seen her with ridge? I mean, does he know about this?
Katie: I'm sure he knows by now.
Wyatt: Did he even come up in your conversation with brooke?
Katie: No. But I do have to wonder what this might mean for them.
Katie: I mean, if bill has disappointed her, I could see her going back to ridge. He is the love of her life.
Ridge: Brooke left spencer. And, to be fair, it was my fault that they were together in the first place.
Eric: Maybe. You know why? I mean, do you know what he did to make her so upset?
Ridge: Why she was upset with an egomaniac like that? No, I don't know.
Eric: I'm not certain that's exactly what brooke needs to hear right now.
Ridge: I know, and she's not gonna hear it -- not from me. Just I'm -- I'm excited for the possibility. That's all.
[ Door opens ]
R.J.: Hey, dad. You got a minute? Hey, granddad.
Ridge: Come on in. I was just telling your granddad about what your mom's going through -- what I know, anyway.
R.J.: Well, she told me she needs some time to think. She didn't say it was over with bill, but it is.
Ridge: We don't know that.
R.J.: Dad, it was inevitable. She wasn't meant for bill. Sh-she...is supposed to be with you. Mom always loved you, and... she always will.
Brooke: I haven't forgotten our wedding day, bill.
Bill: Then let's focus on that -- what we said to each other, the promises we made.
Brooke: You said that I was essential to you, that I was the most important thing in your life...
Bill: And you are.
Brooke: ...That I changed you. You're a better man because of me. But I don't think I taught you anything.
Bill: That's not true!
Brooke: You just take what you want, regardless of the consequences or who you hurt or how much!
Bill: Nobody got hurt! The building was empty! I made sure of it!
Brooke: Would you have gone ahead with it if there were people in there?
Bill: Of course I wouldn't have gone ahead with it! Why would you even say that to me?!
Brooke: Because you are the same man that ordered ridge to be thrown out of the helicopter into the sea!
Bill: Oh, come on.
Brooke: How different is that, really? Have you changed, bill? No! You haven't changed at all!
Bill: Look, I'm a passionate, driven man. I got swept up in my need to win. Did I go too far this time? You're damn right I did. Can I see that? Of course I can see it! I mean, all of this because of a damn skyscraper -- it's ludicrous! But it was never, and nothing will ever be, more important to me than you are.
Brooke: You could have killed people, bill. You could have gone to jail. And you still could. Did you even think about that, or were you too focused on winning the damn prize -- at any cost? See, that's what scares me, bill. I love you... but that part of you -- that just terrifies me.
Katie: I've just been afraid for my sister. You know, what happened, it was -- it was hard for me, and it hurt...really bad, but I-I've only just ever wanted her to be happy. And bill... makes her happy. But I know him. I know him really well. I know what he's capable of, and I... I'm afraid he'll hurt her.
Wyatt: You mean like how he hurt you?
Katie: You know, brooke is more than just a sister to me. She -- she took care of me when our dad left, so... so when she needs taken care of, that's kind of my job.
Wyatt: I know. D-dad is not gonna lose her. I mean, she's -- she's important to him. He loves her.
Katie: Yeah, I know he does. But that doesn't mean he won't hurt her. Believe me, I know. And it wasn't too long ago that ridge was saying the same thing.
Wyatt: So, what are you saying -- ridge has just been waiting in the wings this whole time?
Katie: He's a constant presence in her life. They have so much history together.
Wyatt: Yeah, but we all have someone like that.
Katie: Mnh-mnh, not like them. When they're together, there's this pull that always allows them to find their way back to each other. If this separation is permanent and brooke really leaves bill...
Katie: ...I think it's only a matter of time before she finds her way back to ridge and their son.
Ridge: We're not gonna pressure your mom about this. She's gonna make up her own mind.
R.J.: But you're gonna be there for her when she does, right?
Eric: We will all be there for her, R.J. Your mother occupies a very special place in this family. She's taught us a lot about gentleness and forgiveness. We've all been the recipient of her optimism from time to time.
Ridge: Me more than anyone.
R.J.: Yeah. I just hope she's not feeling that way about bill.
Ridge: Your mom has a big heart, but I think she has her limits.
R.J.: You think she reached her limit with bill?
Ridge: We'll have to wait and see.
R.J.: Whatever bill did, it woke her up. She's gonna come back to the forrester family, where she belongs.
Bill: You know I would never hurt you, brooke.
Brooke: But this hurts me, bill. My god. You had fire set to a building because it was in your way!
Bill: It was an old, rundown building.
Brooke: A building where people worked. They need to make money to support their families and take care of themselves, pay their bills. You just wanted to see spectra crumble so badly, you didn't even think about that -- about sally's employees and what this would do to them. All you thought about was your big, beautiful skyscraper -- a building!
Bill: This is about us, all right? That's what we should be talking about now.
Brooke: And you don't think it's related? Because it is. This is what I'm scared of, this behavior, and I don't want it in my life. I don't want it in my son's life. I am trying to teach him right from wrong. And what about liam, the man with morals? He turned to blackmail because of you. And did you show any remorse? No! You punched him right in the face.
[ Sighs ] I love you, bill. But I need to think about the life that I want to lead. This isn't what we promised each other.
Bill: Brooke, don't do it.
Brooke: Just take them.
Bill: I can'T. I won'T. I'm sorry. I'm sorry I scared you. I'm sorry I let you down. I swore I would never do that. It will never happen again. I love you.
Brooke: Goodbye, bill. I will always have our memories. They will always be very precious to me.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
[ Crying ]
Wyatt: Why -- why... why do relationships have to be so complicated?
Katie: Have you ever had one that's not?
Wyatt: Have you seen my life?
Katie: [ Laughs ]
Wyatt: But this has been... easy for us.
Katie: That's because no one knows about us yet.
Wyatt: Oh, that's the problem. It's everybody else.
Katie: Mm-hmm, yes, usually.
Wyatt: Well, we don't exactly have that problem right now.
Wyatt: But maybe I should still lock the door, because people do have a tendency to walk in --
Katie: No, no, no, no. You don't have to worry about that.
Wyatt: Are you sure? Because I know you don't like surprises.
Katie: Says the biggest surprise I've had in a long time.
Wyatt: I still had to win you over.
Wyatt: I mean, you knew what was happening, but you still just had to control things in the beginning.
Katie: Well, I like to be in control because it makes me feel safe. And I didn't know what to do with this, if I had a place for it.
Wyatt: Or the correctly coded label...
Katie: Or that. I mean, how would I find it?
Wyatt: Where would it go, you know?
Katie: Are you accusing me of not being spontaneous?
Wyatt: Are you asking me to dare you to be spontaneous? Because that wouldn't be very spontan-- oh.
Katie: I'll show you spontaneous.
Wyatt: Oh. Mmm.
Brooke: [ Crying ]
[ Door closes ]
R.J.: Mom? Hey. You okay? What happened?
Ridge: You and spencer?
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
R.J.: It's gonna be okay. I know you're upset, but I think you did the right thing. And I'm not the only one.
Ridge: He's right. You're gonna be okay. I know this is hard, and I'm sorry. But whatever comes next, we're here. I'm here. I love you. I'll always love you, logan.
Brooke: [ Crying ]
