New day at Brookes mansion:
Eric comes to see Brooke and throws his hands in the air and says he doesnt know what she was up to yesterday and he doesnt want to know, but hes finished with this. He demands that she tell Bridget the truth about her and Nick. She interrupts that he said he wouldnt tell her. He says he hasnt, but Bridget senses there is more going on. She conveys there is NOTHING going on. He takes her shoulders and says she can not possibly repress her feelings for Nick as strong as they are, and Nick cant repress his either. Bridget is not stupid; shes going to pick up on something. She counters with no she wont, shes seen to that! Eric now wants to know whats shes up to? She starts to tell him; she was with another man. He scoffs that for Gods sake, another man is not going to solve this! She fills him in they laughed, they talked, drank wine, they kissed. Brooke, romancing another man is not going to convince your daughter that youre over Nick. Have you lost your mind? She tells him no; she knows exactly what shes doing.
At Insomnia, Dante is daydreaming about the previous day with Brooke, especially the kiss. Bridget interrupts his thoughts as she sits down. He asks how she is and then hows things with Nick. She replies not as good as she had hoped. He seems to be very busy; she feels maybe avoiding her. And she cant help but still think there is something still there between Nick and her mom. Dante admits that perhaps he can give her a little reassurance there. He laughs big and tells her she is not going to believe this.
At Tridge Manse, Hector is repairing the security system on the front door as Taylor watches. She tells him she called the alarm company, but they couldnt send anyone until tomorrow, so she didnt know who else to call. He mentions Ridge and she has to admit he isnt living there at the moment. He says hes sorry and then back to the system. It looks to be a short and it shut down even the smoke detectors. She doesnt find that surprising since everything else in this house has gone haywire. He says hell get it up and running for her; he needs to check the circuit breakers and he leaves the room. Ridge flies through the door. Taylor thanks him for coming; she needs to talk to him about Thomas and Gaby. He tells her as soon as he got her message, he wanted to come shake some sense into him alright. He tells her thank God, she got to them before they consummated this fake marriage of theirs. He picks up their photograph off the table and says he still doesnt trust that girl and they have to get her out of the house before she lures Thomas into bed again! She looks at him nervously when she says they already have Thomas and Gaby had sex.
He gives her a look and wants to know what she means they had sex? She tells him to go ahead and say I told you so. He says that wont be a valuable thing to do right now, and pulls out his cell phone. They did it her way, now they are going to do it his way! She asks why, as she has already called Agent Dunn. She fills him in that she gave an official statement that this marriage was a sham. Dunn had Gaby in handcuffs and was about to take her into custody when Gabys attorney showed up. Who had explained to them all that since the marriage had been consummated and because they say they love each other, in the eyes of the law that makes it real. Hes beside himself as Taylor says they have no legal recourse because they are both eighteen. Ridge complains that Thomas has turned himself into a pretzel to help Gaby and she runs and gets a lawyer. Where is he? He calls upstairs for him until Taylor tells him he isnt here. He left with Gaby. He was so angry. Shes so sorry. Perhaps when he cools off and she had believed Gaby when she promised her ..she just did not see this happening. He gives her one of those superior, next time listen to me looks.
Eric tells Brooke her little scheme that she dreamed up isnt going to work. It will only make matters worse. She strolls off and asks what does he want her to do? Tell Bridget she is in love with the father of her child and hes in love with her too? Eric replies yes, at least thats the truth! She says she wont; she cant. Its over between Nick and herself. He sweeps his hands and says just like that? and she replies yes, just like that. For her daughter, she can do anything.
Dante fills Bridget in on his extremely interesting afternoon with this beautiful woman ..named Brooke. Shes aghast as he tells her of the amazing time they had together; the last thing he expected. He points his finger at her and says they spent a lot of time talking about her. Brooke cares a lot about Bridget and thinks she and Nick will have a wonderful life together. Brooke doesnt want to be with Bridgets fiancée; she wants to get on with her life. Bridgets also surprised that Brooke kissed him. Dante says just because she never fell for him doesnt mean other women dont find him attractive. She assures him that is not what she was saying. She jumps up and says she has to go, shell talk to him later.
Eric tells Brooke he knows how much she loves their daughter, hes not questioning that. But he wants her to face reality here. She cant just forget about Nick because she says she will. He sits on the coffee table (everyones fave spot it seems). No matter how many young Italian men she kisses or that kisses her. Her feelings for Nick aren't just going to go away, nor his feelings for her. He tells her that Nick lost his heart to her, and he doesnt think he is capable of pretending that he hasnt. She sighs that when Nick realizes that shes not coming back and that shes moved on, he will be able to commit to Bridget and his child completely. He argues that she can do that? Just decide? She replies, yes, Ive made up my mind; my decision, and I cant change it. Our daughters happiness depends on it. Bridget walks in and says she was just with Dante. Whats going on?
Ridge asks where Thomas is? Taylor admits shes called his cell; his friends; she doesnt know where he is. But, she is sure when he has a little time . Ridge scorns her she is sure? Is that like she was so sure Thomas and his bride would obey the rules and not sleep together? She turns away and admits she made some mistakes. He piles on by saying yes she had made mistakes. Their sons life was in a complete mess right now because she wouldnt even consider what he had to say. She denies it and he goes on that yes, she invited Gaby there to stay without even consulting him first. She reminds him that he wasnt there. He wonders why she couldnt have waited until he was there? She looks him in the eyes and says she did the best she could under very difficult circumstances. He snides again that oh, when she threw him out, was that the best she could do? She offers that she did not throw him out; only asked him to go to counseling. And he spits, or else? She tells him she was fighting for a life with him. She wanted this marriage to work but she was tired of going to bed at night and him creeping in thinking about his ex-wife. I wont live like that. I deserve better!
Bridget asks Eric for some private time with Brooke. But, Brooke counters that its okay, Eric knows all about Dante. She was just telling him. Bridget laughs, then its true. Brooke says its the last thing she expected, and Bridget says thats exactly what Dante said too. One minute they were at the office talking, and the next at the pool kissing. She shrugs sheepishly.
Ridge wants to know if shes going to blame this on Brooke now? Taylor counters no, and she doesnt want to even talk about Brooke. She wants Brooke out of their lives. He snaps his fingers and sarcastically says, yeah you want it all to happen right now, dont you? She claims that is not fair. She gave him all the time he needed and he was the one who wanted to re-new their wedding vows. He says yeah, thats right. He CHOSE to be with her and Thomas and the girls. And the minute he made that choice; she came up with all these different rules. How are those rules working out for you now, huh? He adds insult to injury by asking is Thomas in college? Phoebe and Steffy spending more quality time with Mom and Dad? Hows it all working out for her? Hector is returning and about to walk in when he hears the bickering. Taylor tells Ridge to please stop it. She lashes out that if he is trying to get her to say it is her fault; okay she will. It IS her fault, but cant they just stop trying to find someone to blame here, and just fix it? He shrugs, how, by talking it to death in therapy? She continues that she wants a family that functions and communicates with each other honestly. He bellows at her that he WAS honest; in that he needed her support and understanding. And he was honest when he told her how painful it was for him to lose R.J. and Hope. And how betrayed he felt by his own mother. And that he wanted Gaby out of this house because he doesnt trust her! He stares at her and says he jumped through hoops for her, but she never heard him because she really never listened to him. She thinks because shes a shrink with all these degrees that she has the answer to everything! The truth is you dont know squat about what this family needs and you definitely do not know squat what I need. Hector steps out and tells him that is enough. Ridge wants to know what in the hell is he doing there? Hector tells him that his circuit breaker overloaded, and he thinks it might be a good time for him to take a walk, cool off. Ridge grins all over himself; yeah, hes going to take a walk alright. Hes going to find their son and try to solve this fiasco. She pleads with him when he finds Thomas to tell him that she loves him. He snaps that sure, thatll make everything just fine.
Then one last jab. Dammit Doc, come on! I moved Brooke and Hope and R.J. out of here so we could be a family together and look what the hell its turned into.
He throws his hands to his face and starts to say, he wishes .She finishes it, he wishes he had stayed with Brooke and her children? He throws his hands up again and just walks off. (shame on you, Ridge. At least admit it or deny it?) She follows him with her eyes to the door, already in tears as Hector looks on.
Bridget tells her mother she is shocked. Brooke says no more than she is. But, sometimes when youre least looking for it, wonderful things happen. Brooke even says Dante is a refreshing change from the other men in her life. Eric chimes in and Brooke offers that even he approved. But, even if he didnt, she was moving on. She points out that Bridget and Nick have all these wonderful journeys ahead of her, and she wants the same. And she remarks that shes not looking for a big romance .or her destiny, but something uncomplicated for a change. Dante made her laugh and she felt free. And she hadnt felt that in a long time; being serious and having to work at a relationship. But, if Bridget was uncomfortable with her dating Dante, then she wouldnt. Bridget stammers and hopes shes not doing it because then says nevermind. If shes happy, and she does seem happy, then its all good. Brooke stands up and puts her hands on Bridgets shoulders and tells her she and Nick are going to get married and have a beautiful baby girl or boy ..and Bridget continues that she and Dante, well who knows! They both hug and Brooke tells Bridget she is going to have such a wonderful life from now on. She promises. Bridget says she believes her.
