Same day continuation from Wednesdays episode:
On The Shady Marlin, Nick goes below and remarks that Jackie is still there. She tells him they werent through talking. This is a critical time in his life and if she knows whats best for him, she is going to tell him. He scoffs, as if there was any way to stop her! She states that hell do the same some day. She just hopes that HE or SHE will have the good sense to thank him. He stares her down and says, do you want me to thank you, Mother? She replies she wants him to be honest with his feelings. He says she has always known the truth. Hes in love with Brooke, but that doesnt mean he cant be happy with Bridget. He says he was thrilled when he heard she was pregnant. And he didnt know how she feels about that, but for him its a blessing. She says its a blessing for everybody, especially for her (hands crossed chest); her first grandchild. And shes thrilled, or at least she will be if he will just not deny the truth; he cant ignore his heart! He looks her right in the eye and says, I grew up without a father. Im not going to do that to my kid!
At some office in the hospital, Dante surprises Bridget and wants to know if she found Nick and told him she was still pregnant. She replies yes and shes sorry she didnt get back in touch with him. She was exhausted and slept twelve hours straight. She cant believe she put herself, cant believe she put Dante or Nick, or her mother through all of that. Dante tells her the important thing right now is that she take care of herself and the child. She remarks the crazy thing is, she thought thats what she was doing. As messed up as it was, she thought she was protecting her baby. She was really insecure and she doesnt want to be that person anymore. She wants to start her family with Nick, put all that other behind her ..and move on!
Taylor, twins, Gaby and Thomas all come home; very upbeat and joke about his great designs and them getting a discount to wear them. Taylor is surprised to hear that Sally wants to extend his contract. He teases she will have to see his agent. Taylor even offers that nothing would make his father happier than sharing this passion with his son. He wonders if his dad is so proud of him; why isnt he there? She tells him she was hoping hed be home too, but they are at an impasse. He asks what does that mean. She replies it means its nothing they should be talking about right now; to spoil his evening. Gaby brings up that they were hoping this would bring them back together. Taylor offers that their problems arent going to be solved with a fashion show. Thomas says he knows she suggested counseling, and Ridge said no, why? She glances at Gaby when she says it isnt something they should be talking about. He guesses it and asks if it about them? She confirms that she and his dad disagree about things because he doesnt think they can play by the rules; especially after seeing them kissing backstage. Thomas tells her they both got caught up in the excitement and Ridge was the only one who saw them. She points out that as long as that is as far as it goes. He agrees, they got it! She tells him shes going to bed, and congratulates him with a kiss. He turns to Gaby and tells her just give him a few minutes and meet him at the cabana. He leaves her with a quick kiss.
Jackie tells Nick hes just being hurtful, talking about his childhood that way as if it was something awful! He states he grew up without a father; its a fact. She says she let Massimo slip away because she was too afraid to follow her heart, and yes, Nick paid for it. He sneers that hes not going to put his kid in the same position. She says, by putting yourself in mine? By turning you back on love because its inconvenient? What kind of lesson is that to teach a child, Nick? She continues that she didnt realize the importance of her feelings for his father until it was too late, and she doesnt want him to make the same mistake. What happened between him and Brooke wasnt an apparition, it was real! She continues to harangue that Ridge was not Brookes destiny, he was! Nick yells what about Bridget? Hes been telling her over and over that hes different! That Im the man she can depend on. And now Im telling her Im not. Im leaving her for her mother! He whispers, you know me better than anyone. What kind of man does that make me? He remarks that if he leaves Bridget now; hes betraying the mother of his child. Jackie covers her face with her hands in utter despair.
Thomas sets up the cabana; a real love nest. Lights are low except for what looks like dozens of lit candles, open windows with curtains flowing in the breeze. (uh, might want to close those). Gaby is pleasantly surprised, WOW, but asks about his mom. He takes her by the hand and sits her down and says dont worry about his mom. Her room is on the other side of the house and she wont even know they are there. (famous last words). He tells her he learned something very important today; more than designing and success. How much she brought into his life. Having her there and knowing she supported him, made it incredible. He tells her he knows his mother wants him to explore other options, but he doesnt want to be with anyone else. Im in love with you. I love you Gabriella Forrester.
Jackie softly tells Nick that he isnt doing Bridget any favors by staying with her for the child. Nick says Bridget doesnt want any favors; she wants a man she can believe in. She tells him thats why Bridget lied to him about the abortion. She was testing him and poor thing now thinks he passed. He states he gave Bridget his word and hes keeping it. She asks what about what happened with Brooke the night they talked? He replies thats not an issue. She goes on so hes just going to sweep it under the rug? He reveals Bridget has nothing to worry about. Jackie follows him and says thats the problem. He has managed to convince Bridget that they can CONTROL their feelings, but what is going to happen when they cant? What happens to Bridget when the truth comes out ..and the truth WILL come out. He says not if he can help it and she replies it might not be possible.
Dante tells Bridget he doesnt want her to get hurt. She glares at him that she wont. He wants to believe that and he wants to be there for her. Bridget assures him that Nick and Brooke arent together; they have overcome their feelings for each other just as he needs to overcome his feelings for her. Come on, Dante. You DESERVE so much more than to be somebodys Plan B. And if was still holding out hope ..he assures her he only wants her to be with whoever she wants for her sake and the baby. She tells him pointblank she wants to be with Nick and he wanted to be with her. Dante turns away and she asks him not to be so sad. And a great catch like him. It would only be a few months before hed meet somebody new. He flashes those dimples and says yeah, he thought it might be more like a couple of hours. She teases she should know better than to worry about anyone like him!
Thomas tells Gaby that he loves her and she repeats that she loves him too. WOW. He tells her he didnt expect this. When they got married, he wanted to help, to protect her, but this. .when they are together knowing when he goes to bed that she is just right down the hall She tells him he has changed her life .after her mother died .he made her happy again when shes with him, she feels so safe ..she wants to show him how she feels. He says he wants that too and kisses her. He pulls away, but tells her he wants to make love to her. She replies she hasnt before .and he remarks only if she wants to . She says she does, so much. He asks her not to worry, they are married. They kiss more until he pulls away and says they do have to be careful. He searches his pockets and tells her he forgot something; he has to go back upstairs. They kiss again and she tells him to hurry.
Nick tells Jackie he doesnt know what to do here; hes lost. Jackie says hes always been honest and forthright, its just WHO he is. And its what attracted Bridget to him. If he lies to her .if he continues to fight his feelings for Brooke, if he keeps up with this charade, then hes cheating and no one wins. She half turns him around and takes his hand as she holds and caresses it and tells him that honesty, honesty is the only way and he will find that out sooner or later. She leaves him with, God, I hope you find it out soon. He goes below and calls Brooke and says he needs to talk to her. Hes coming over now!
Gaby hears a noise and assumes its Thomas coming back and she greets Taylor as she walks into the room in her white satin robe. She looks around and asks what is going on here? Or does she even have to ask? Gaby offers an explanation, that it isnt what it looks like (oh yeah, looks that way to me). Taylor is angry, Gaby lied, after all she did to protect her. Misleading a federal agent, and inviting her into her home and she only asked for one thing in return. Gaby says nothing happened; they were just talking. Taylor knows they were planning on a lot more. Gaby offers Thomas just wanted to celebrate. Taylor wonders how? When Gaby doesnt reply, Taylor adds is she going to try to make her think they werent going to make love? Gaby turns away and Taylor says, I want the truth NOW! Again, when Gaby is tongue-tied and cant say a word, Taylor says she went out on a limb for the two of them. He went against her husbands wishes because she trusted them. She thought she was a nice girl in a bad situation. Gaby says she is. Taylor continues one rule. She told her she would support their marriage with one stipulation. And Gaby had given her word that things would not get physical. Gaby says they havent, but Taylor remarks they were about to get that way. And Ridge was right. She really couldnt let these two teenagers stay in the house by themselves; it was like playing with fire. Gaby frantically asks her to please give them one more chance; they just got caught up in the moment.
Taylor wonders, one more chance to deceive her? She tells this young girl she wants her to go call Stephanie, she will let her stay with her. She wants her to go upstairs and put her things together and leave this house. As she walks out, Gaby says no. Taylor turns and says, excuse me! Gaby replies, Im not leaving. Im not going anywhere."
