At Forrester, Nick questions Brooke that she cant fire the Forresters? She still wants to be part of them? She tells him she knows he has his concerns, but she is the only one who can know what she has to do. He argues that she has complete control of Forrester Creations. And it is her lifelong dream. She can have it ALL. You just cant have me ..and be a Forrester. Ridge is smugly looking on.
At Dantes studio, he confronts an overly friendly Christian and Felicia draped all over him. Christian tells him he thinks theres been a little misunderstanding here. Dante says hell throw him out himself if he has to. Christian stands and says he will leave when Felicia asks him to. Dante reminds him that it is HIS studio. Christian asks, and your woman? He glances at Felicia but doesnt answer. She dismisses Christian for the moment. Turning to Dante, she says, wow, and here I thought the caveman was extinct. He points his finger at her and tells her not to make a joke. She asks what is she supposed to do? He swaggers in there like a cheap Italian John Wayne and throws a perfectly nice guy out of the room .a guy that actually might be interested in her. Which she should mention that he isnt, and then she shouldnt mention that his behavior is freaking bizarre? He bellows why does she make it so hard for people to care about her? She asks does that mean that HE cares about her?
At Taylors, Stephanie apologizes, saying this is all her fault. When Ridge left her, she just didnt realize how vulnerable Taylor was. Otherwise, she knows she wouldnt have said all those things to her if she hadnt been in so much pain herself. Stephen speaks up and tells her to wait a minute now Stephanie is the victim? Stephanie points at him and tells the loser that he is responsible for all of this and he cant come back here and think hes going to get back at her and her family. Hes poisoned Taylors mind against her. Taylor yells that HE didnt betray her. Stephanie argues that he USED her. Shes Ridges wife and hes the father of her worst enemy. Cant she figure out what hes done here? Standing by Taylors side, he tells Stephanie that Taylors life is no longer any of her business.
Bridget waters the plants and flowers on her porch. Ridges words echo in her mind. You know if Nick and your mother are having problems now, that relationship isnt going to last.
Nick whispers to Brooke that he knows how hard this is for her .her history with this family ..this business ..but she can not have a life with them and a life with him. Unless she has changed her mind about them. She replies no. She tells him she does want to make things work, for you and me. But, she also wants to make things work for Ridges family. She realizes Nick doesnt want her to work closely with Ridge; she understands that. But, she has been thinking about this and she really thinks she has found a way this can work. She can still be CEO and never see Ridge. Nick looks at her incrediously. She offers that she can run Forrester Creations from Marone Industries. Shed have an office right next to his. Doesnt he see? This could work out for everybody. Again, Ridge hasnt spoken but he hasnt taken his eyes or smug look off of them.
Dante laments that he wasnt gone two minutes and she threw herself at another guy. She differs that she just wanted to have a little fun. He shouts fun? If he hadnt shown up, she would have had the guy right there. What was she thinking? She fires at him, excuse me Grandma Damiano, but you didnt have a problem with my thinking when I took you home and had sex and didnt even remember your name! Angrily, he asks who says he didnt have a problem with that? And why does she always have to act like a slut? She accuses him that is a nice thing to say about the mother of his son. He wants to shake her as he grabs her and asks her doesnt she get it? Shes better than that!
Stephanie tells Taylor that Stephen came after her for one reason and one reason only the stock. Oh, she adds and a little sex, which is like sticking it to Ridge twice. Never in her life did she think Taylor would be so STUPID for falling for something so obvious. She then implores Taylor to save what self-respect she has and give her back her stock.
Nick looks doubtful but Brooke continues that she doesnt actually have to be here to run Forrester. He doesnt like the fact that Ridge will still be in her life. She reminds him that both Eric and Ridge ARE Forrester Creations and it would be morally wrong to fire them, not to mention bad business. Losing the two lead designers would send the clients into a panic and the company into a tailspin.
Finally, Ridge speaks. He walks over and says that is why she is CEO of the company. She is able to see past all the garbage and do what is best for the company. She asks if Ridge can do the same? Can he do whats best for the company? Respect her and her future with Nick because she is doing what is best for his family. But, I could change my mind in a second, and dont think I wont. With hesitation, she says if he doesnt mind, shed like some privacy while she packs up her things. Ridge replies, as you wish. When he leaves, Nick says he doesnt like it. But, Brooke says it has to be this way. She tenderly holds him by both shoulders and tries to explain that she does love him and wants to make a life with him, but she cant do something that she really doesnt believe in. Not even for him! On the surface, he seems to accept that and says guess she wouldnt be the woman he loves if she did.
Dante sits Felicia down and argues why does she do this? She is a walking contradiction. She wants people to care about her, become close to her and then she pushes them away, scaring them away by doing something like this. Why? And shes a grown woman; he knows what she is doing. She replies maybe that is just who she is. He asks does she even know who that is? Because he doesnt think shes this perfectly dangerous, hurtful person she claims to be. He tells her he thinks she is this smart, intelligent, loving, caring woman. She sheepishly says she didnt mean to hurt him. He scolds her that she hurt herself most of all. And this has got to stop. She cant keep throwing herself away. She has to see herself for who she is! The way he sees her; the way their son sees her. Can she do that? She wipes the tears away.
Stephen smiles as he says he is afraid what Stephanie is asking isnt possible. Hes already assigned those stocks over to Brooke. Stephanie turns to her and says the lawyers can fix this. Just tell them she was drinking. Stephanie asks her to ask Stephen to leave; she doesnt think they should be in the same room. Taylor replies she is right, she doesnt think the two of them should be in the same room. She looks toward Stephen, but then asks Stephanie to leave. Stunned, Stephanie asks if she is going to side with this bum? Taylor asks if that is the way she sees it? Everybody who isnt a Forrester? People she has nothing to gain from? Stephanie says Taylor knows that is not true. Taylor says what she does know is that she fought like hell to live .to come home .to be with her family who she knew would walk through fire with her. People who she knew would look after her and protect her.
She spits, THAT is the family I thought I had, Stephanie. And she says she only sold 2% because apparently that is all Stephanie thought she was worth. Why doesnt she go talk to the person who she thought was worth half of everything she owns? She respects Brooke; she admires her. She is sorry she deprived Ridge of all her love all these years. And that makes it okay because she tells her that she thinks she understands because Taylor was probably just drunk. And thats the way to get back into her heart. She looks her in the face and declares that Stephanie is selfish and narcissistic and dangerous. And Taylor feels like a fool because she didnt see it a WAY long time ago. She really snaps as she points her finger and tells Stephanie she doesnt want to see her anymore. She doesnt want to ever look at her again! Without a word, Stephanie assesses the situation and walks out. Taylor sits down and dissolves in tears. Stephen tries to quietly comfort her.
Nick sneaks up on Bridget still on the porch and she asks is he alright? He seemed really upset on the phone. He says well things have changed. And he wanted her to be the first one he talked to about it. He starts with that her mother now owns 52% of Forrester stock. She didnt know this, only the 50%. He explains that Taylor sold him her 2% and they did that to protect her mother. She voices her opinion that she thought it was wrong for Brooke to work at Forrester Creations. He says its insane. And she says it might have worked in theory to fire Eric, Ridge and Stephanie, but her mother would never do something like that. He explains that she wants to run Forrester from Marone Industries, but those people will still be in her life! She sits beside him and asks how does he feel about that? He admits he feels a little lost.
Brooke is packing up some boxes and she lovingly holds a framed photo of her and Ridge and the kids. He knocks on the opened door and comes in saying he really likes her style finding a way to let Nick down easy. He says he wishes she was going to be working there with him, but hell take what he can get when he can get it these days. But, he admits that some things just cant be done by the phone like picking fabric and last minute things. And though he knows her body pretty well, theres the Bedroom Line She tells him to stop. He has to respect her relationship with Nick. He tells her what she did today, for the company and the family, that is the woman he loves. Thats why youll always be my Logan. He reaches in and picks up the photo she just boxed and tells her she already has determined their future. All that is left is playing it out.
Felicia softly tells Dante she doesnt know what he wants. He goes and sits beside her and says he doesnt need much. But, he just needs some time to get to know her better without complications like this finding a stray doctor in the neighborhood in bed with her. Sleeping around isnt going to make her feel any better. She replies, ya think? He admits he thinks thats what happened to him when their son was conceived. She says no one has ever talked to her like this before. She smiles as he quips that perhaps she just hasnt ever found that cheap, Italian John Wayne until now. They both laugh and he beckons her to come and she lays her head on his broad shoulders.
With some reflection, Taylor tells Stephen that what happened between them was very nice but it has to end here. He remarks that Stephanie got to her, didnt she? She says it would be nice, but hes Brookes father and with that history .He says they all have baggage. She asks if they can be friends? He jokes, no goodbye kiss? He walks to the door, but then comes back and does give her a hearty goodbye kiss and winks at her as he leaves.
Nick leads Bridget inside the beach house and spouts that her family they should lock them all up and throw away the key. The trouble is they would probably find a way out or her mother would let them out. He paces and finally says hes sorry. He didnt mean to come here and dump on her like this. He asks why did she ever put up with him anyway? After a long hesitation, she approaches and says she just wants what is best for him and she thinks he will figure that out.
Stephanie rushes back to the office and bursts in on Brooke and says she just came from seeing her father and it is absolutely clear, she gestures, what is going on here. She says Brookes behavior this morning she knew it wasnt her. Its the two of them. Brooke wonders who? Stephanie replies Stephen and Nick. And she goes further by saying she has placed herself in a very vulnerable position because she has done what she thought was the right thing. And now they are trying to seize this opportunity to destroy her. But, she thinks they made a miscalculation by underestimating Brooke. If you stand with me, we can stop this. I believe my trust in you is not mistaken. Are you with me or against me? Whats it gonna be?"
