Brooke and Ridge are in bed with their beautiful baby between them. Think he knows? Asks Ridge softly. You mean what a special day this is for his mom and dad? Answers Brooke. Ridge says special doesnt even begin to describe it. Brooke says this is the happily ever after theyve been waiting for, for so long. Mommie! Says Hope, running in to climb into bed with them. She cozies up to her mom and kisses her baby brother good morning. Ridge tells her that morning kisses are supposed to be wet and sloppy and make your toes curl. (Ive got to admit that the kids they choose for these parts are absolutely adorable.) They send her down for Catherine to fix her some breakfast, saying they dont want her tummy to growl during the wedding. Ridge says that in a few more hours theyll be making their commitment in front of all their family and friends. (Yea, gosh, theres something new, huh?) Brooke asks him what he means, because she thought they were keeping it small. He says he tweaked the guest list a bit, and that Kristin and Felicia are flying in. He says he called Brookes sisters, and Storm, but they cant come on such short notice. Ridge asks her if shes disappointed. She says it isnt exactly her first time as a bride. Ridge says in a way it is, because this time its forever. (cough) Meanwhile, Nick is sitting on deck of the Shady Marlin, holding the compass bracelet that he had given Brooke. (And she gave back.) Hes thinking back to happy times, when they were together. And hes contemplating tossing the bracelet in the water.
Stephanie is telling Eric about having dinner with Thorne and Darla. Eric is surprised. She says she wanted to check on him after everything that happened at the board meeting. (Stephanie is looking very pretty today in black, instead of her usual muted pastel.) They discuss Alexandria, and how she insisted that her grams say for dinner. Stephanie says that at least she has one grandchild that she doesnt need Brookes permission to see. Eric tells her to give it some time, itll get better. Stephanie says shed like to believe that, but that Brooke has her at her mercy and is making the most of it. Then Eric picks up the invitation to Ridge and Brookes wedding and hands it to Stephanie. She looks at it and takes a deep breath.
Rick is leading Caitlin, blindfolded, to a surprise he has for her. As they get to it, he opens a door and leads her in. He takes off her blindfold, and shes standing in Thornes old office, which is now, explains Rick, Caitlins new office! She is overwhelmed. I cant believe this is happening! She says, looking around at all the manikins. Then he takes a drape off an easel which has the word Ingénue and explains to her that its the name of the new line. Three guesses where we got that inspiration. He says. Rick tells her that she earned it. She says she got lucky, in more ways than one, looking at him adoringly.
Ridge brings Brooke a cup of tea as she scurries around the bedroom getting ready. She says that she hates to bring it up, but what about his mother. Any chance shell be at the ceremony? Ridge says that he tried to reach out to her last night but it didnt go too well. He says maybe shell have a change of heart. He says he knows how Brooke feels about her, but he thinks maybe if she sees them exchange vows, it will sink in that they are husband and wife, and that she is a permanent part of the family. Brooke offers to go to Stephanie and invite her personally to the ceremony. Ridge says thats extremely generous of her. I think so. Says Brooke. Then Ridge asks what he will have to do to repay the favor. You will invite Nick. She says. Youre kidding me! He says. Brooke says that he did say he wanted his family to be there. Ridge says Nick is not family. Hes your brother! Says Brooke. And no matter whats happened he needs to know that we dont hold him responsible for . Ridge interrupts her with What do you mean dont hold him responsible? Im still not okay with all that! She asks him to do it for her. He thinks for a minute, and then agrees to do it. Then he tells her that he wouldnt get her hopes up too high where his mother is concerned. Brooke says she will do her best, but given how she feels about her, she guesses her chances are slim to none.
A re-affirmation of our love. Reads Stephanie, from the invitation. Shaking her head, she says the idea of going there and standing and watching .then she trails off. I cant go. She says to Eric, getting up and walking away as she hands him back the invitation, leaving him perplexed and disappointed.
Brooke is almost ready to leave, shes going through her purse, when she comes upon a picture of Nick, Hope, and her, signed on the back, All my love, Nick. She smiles as she looks at it, and starts remembering good times with him. She remembers dancing with him, the beach, their time in Hawaii, fun times with both of them and Hope, sexy times. And Nick is still on his boat, sitting on the edge of the deck, remembering all the same things, and theres no smile on his face. Suddenly Ridge appears by his side. They look at each other, but neither speaks immediately. Finally Nick speaks. You take a wrong turn? He asks. No dont make me regret being here Nick. He says, handing the invitation to Nick. Is this for me? Nick asks, taking it. He opens it up, and says Sweet, A Re-affirmation Of Our Love Ridge says that Brooke wants him to be there. Does she? Thats nice. Says Nick. What about you Forrester? Is that what you want? He says, putting his face right up to Ridges.
Stephanie answers the door to find Brooke standing there. Oh God. She says, rolling her eyes. Now, now, is that any way to treat your soon-to-be daughter-in-law? Asks Brooke, walking in and handing her an invitation. Stephanie looks at it, and hands it back to Brooke saying that one was more than enough. Youre not coming? Asks Brooke, as though shes surprised. Stephanie says that she would rather be coated with honey and run naked through a swarm of bees. (Hahahahaha) Well, I tried. Says Brooke, heading for the door. Stephanie turns and asks if Ridge sent her. Brooke says that they made a deal. She would ask Stephanie, and Ridge would ask Nick. Stephanie asks her if she thinks Nick wants to be at the wedding. Well see. Says Brooke. Then Brooke tells Stephanie that it would give her a chance to spend some time with her grandchildren. But if you dont want that .. Stephanie tells Brooke that she knows Brooke doesnt want her spending time with them. Brooke tells her shes wrong. No. Says Stephanie. Its wrong what youre doing keeping them from me, its spiteful. But its going to come back to you in ways you cant even imagine. Brooke just looks at her.
Caitlin is walking around her new office, touching things, getting a feel for it. So you like the new office? Asks Rick. I love it, Im just not sure what Im supposed to be doing in it exactly. She says. Rick tells her that her day is all mapped out for her, and hands her an itinerary. Rick, this is a photo shoot. She says. Really! Says Rick, asking her what time that is. She says its nine oclock. He looks at his watch and says they better get going. He walks over and opens the door, and in walks Giovanni and his crew. Oh my god! Giovanni?? Says Caitlin. Giovanni tells Rick that hes right, she is beautiful. Caitlin tells Giovanni that she has never modeled before. Giovanni tells her hell take care of everything. Theyre supposed to do a location shoot, but Caitlin asks if they can do the shoot at Forrester, where shes more comfortable. Giovanni says that will work. Then he introduces the hair stylist, and make-up artist, and his assistant to Caitlin. At that point Rick asks if they will all give him a minute with Caitlin. They all walk back out. You think I can pull this off? Asks Caitlin. Rick walks over to her and says that she is going to be great. Then he kisses first her forehead, and then the lips. Shes totally hooked on him.
Nick is sitting in a deck chair playing with the invitation, his back to Ridge. So whats it gonna be, yes or no? Asks Ridge. I thought youd left. Says Nick. Ridge says he needs to tell Brooke something. Nick asks if Brooke put him up to this. Ridge says that it was her idea, and asks again if he will be there. Nick says that man to man, he knows Ridge doesnt really want him there. Ridge says its not about him, that Brooke would like him to be there, and he knows that Hope would like to see him too. Nick says in another couple of months Hope wont even know who he is. Besides, youre the family man; you know what youre doing. Good luck getting the brush through those curls though, but Im sure youll manage. Ridge asks him if hes through with it all. Nick says he has a lot of work to do, that hes launching a new cargo ship. He says the model just came in, and he takes it out of the box to show Ridge. The model says Hope on the side. The Hope? Says Ridge. Nick has named his new cargo ship, Hope. (Awwwwwwwwwwwww!)
Threatening me today of all days? Not very wise. Says Brooke walking back in. Stephanie says she doesnt have anything to lose. Brooke says shes not keeping Stephanie from her grandchildren. Oh, so you do want me at the ceremony. Says Stephanie. Brooke says she came all the way over to ask her. Stephanie says she knows Brooke doesnt want her there. Brooke says shes right, that its the happiest day of her life and she doesnt really want to see Stephanies scowling face looking back at her. But its important to Ridge, for whatever reason. Says Brooke. Stephanie says shes not surprised that Brooke doesnt understand that. You have no idea what Ridge and I mean to each other. She says. Brooke says she understands more than she wants to. This has nothing to do with the grandchildren, or that Im not Taylor. She says that Stephanie didnt like Taylor when Ridge first married her either. She says that Stephanie is upset because she doesnt want anyone to come between her and her greatest love, Ridge. Dont you know how sick that is? You look at him in a way that no mother should. She says. Stephanie grows angrier by the second, and tells Brooke to get out. Then Brooke says that Stephanie wishes that it was her face on the invitation, and that its not Brooke whos been obsessed all these years, but Stephanie. You! Says Brooke, shaking the invitation in Stephanies face.
