Dante tells everyone to hold on, the wedding is not ruined. But, Felicia declares that it is. She can not go on today. Bridget tries to explain that whatever Felicia thinks is happening, nothing is going on between her and Dante. She suggests that Dante really is committed to her and her family and that Bridget completely respects her marriage. Felicia accuses her of lying. She saw her; she knows what she did. Even when Bridget volunteers to leave, Felicia bolts from the room. Bridget tries to go after her, but Dante puts a halt to that and he goes instead.
At Marone, Brooke enters Nicks office. Surprised, he opines he wondered when shed show. She thanks him for calling her and saying that he was still committed to their life together. He states, never go to bed angry, right? She agrees but states they went to bed alone and she didnt like that. He tells her they have some decisions to make. She concludes that she never thought Ridge would kiss her like that at the fashion show. He offers that she really didnt try very hard to stop him. Brooke apologizes for only thinking about the line and what was good for Forrester, when she should have just been thinking about Nick. He gets up and wanders around. She tells him he has been so patient. He answers that well has run dry. She says she knows and confesses she should have listened to him when she started back to work at Forresters and when he told her what Ridge might do and he did. He tells her he doesnt blame her for any of this, not anything at all and he doesnt love her any less. But, this should be the easy part of the relationship ..no more conflicts. He doesnt want any more of those dramas. She vows that it wont be. But, he states she cant know that. The man violated her when she was on the medication and kissed her in front of the world on the runway. He feels like its a game and thats how hes going to treat it like a game. Right now, there is two strikes. Just make sure there is not a third.
Christian, Sally, Ridge and Thorne are gathered and Christian asks what just happened? Ridge says Dante just destroyed the happiest day of his sisters life. Dantes family likewise is appalled. Stephanie demands to know of Bridget what Felicia is talking about; what did she see?
With Dante in close pursuit, at first Felicia refuses to talk and then she falls into his arms. She asks if Bridget ruined it for him too? He replies no, it was all his fault. Bridget really supported their marriage. She states if she was so damn supportive, why was she kissing Dante?
Brooke asks Nick if he is giving her an ultimatum? He says no, but a man has his limits. She asks has she pushed him to his? He answers Forrester has, not her. He says this is not an ultimatum, but a discussion. One hes been trying to have for weeks. He says he worries about her. He wants to protect her because he has no idea what this guy might try to pull next. She vows that she has told him, she wont let anything happen. But he counters that the closer to the wedding it gets, he will stop it. She again vows that he wont. Nothing will. (check your track record Brooke!) Nick laments that he trusts her. He wants to believe her, but until they say their I Dos, they need to be careful! Then he jokes about handing him a gun when she says she needs to go over to the Forresters today to get a few things. No one will see her as they will all be in the showroom for the wedding. He’s putty in her hands when she tells him she loves him and kisses him before she leaves.
Stephanie demands that Bridget tell her what Felicia saw. She gets very angry when Bridget tries to slip away saying she needs to speak with Felicia first. Eric has to intercede and grabs Stephanie by the arm and tells her to leave them all alone. Let Felicia and Dante settle this for themselves. She grits her teeth and glares at him that their daughter is hurting and she has NO intention of standing by and doing nothing!
Felicia blames it all on Bridget. Its not Dantes fault even though she tells him she saw he and Bridget kissing. She realizes he is vulnerable to Bridget. He again tries to claim blame but she wont hear of it. She says she doesnt know how Bridget could do this to her. She even asked her if she had a problem with this wedding and shed answered no. He confesses that Bridget did not attack him or corner him in that room. She knows that. That would not be her style. She was lying to Felicia and to herself. She wanted to be the good girl, but she’s not.
Bridget walks in and implores Felicia not to turn this into something ugly. She never meant to hurt her. Felicia just knows it was supposed to be the happiest moment of her life. And no, Bridget wouldnt hurt her, not Bridget, the martyr. So, what was it? Just a coincidence that after months of rejecting Dante, she suddenly cant live without him on the day that hes supposed to marry Felicia? Like she threw herself at him on the day of the wedding. Stephanie overhears this and corners Bridget if this is true. Bridget confesses that yes, it is true. She retorts that she was kissing him good-bye. She was giving him up for Felicia; just like shed given up everything else!
Eric assures Dantes parents that he is sure Dante will straighten this out. Brooke rushes in and asks Eric what is happening? She just saw the minister leave the building and she’d said the wedding was cancelled. Filameno almost has the vapors and Aldo consoles her. Eric starts to fill Brooke in on the proceedings and she spots Ridge looking her way, asks quickly where Stephanie is and then rushes off to be with Bridget.
Felicia asks Bridget if she is going to blame her? Bridget jumps her fiancée and she is calling Felicia the bitch? Dante says no one is calling anyone a bitch. Felicia quips, just wait. Bridget says she knows Felicia is mad at her and she has every right. Felicia slams you damn right she does. Bridget tells her that she cant blame her for being confused! Stephanie thinks that is rich she is confused? For turning Felicias life upside down, she is confused? Bridget lays into Stephanie that HER life was turned upside down. Felicia had told Nick that she had HIS child .and then she told them she was dying and begged them to take him in as their own ..and then oops, hes not really Nicks child after all. She lashes out that NEVER stopped her from loving him. She took him into her heart and treated him just like her own son. She jabs at Felicia – just like she asked her to; just like she BEGGED her to.
Stephanie starts to interfere that Bridget is saying theyd be better off with Felicia dead? Bridget shouts for her to SHUT UP. And then rants of course not, having his mother was a blessing, but did any of them think of what it did to HER? She cries that shes just lost her daughter. Felicia manages a great timing, but pardon me if Im having difficulty feeling sorry for you right now. Bridget shakes her off, that she doesnt want anything from them. Felicia quips – no, just her fiancée.
Bridget continues did Felicia ever talk to her before she accepted Dantes proposal? Felicia states that yes, she was the first person she called and shed congratulated her. Bridget gulps then admits she was right. She says she is sorry, she confesses she should have been honest with Felicia. But, she turns on Felicia and says if she had been honest with herself, none of this would have happened. I know that you realize that deep, deep, down, he really wants to be with me! (Dante is standing right there. Why doesnt he speak up or someone ask him who he wants to be with?)
Ridge states that this is going to be devastating to Felicia. Shes waited her whole life for this. Eric agrees if she and Dante cant work this out. And to make matters worse, Ridges mother and Brooke have run off to support their daughters. Sally quips they better hope there is a bomb shelter available. Because this situation between Stephanie and Brooke is about to implode. Eric reminds them that won’t be good for the family or the company.
Stephanie tries to be the calm voice of reason. If Dante really wanted to be with Bridget, why did he exchange vows with Felicia? Felicia turns to Dante and asks if he was lying? He replies he wasnt lying. Bridget speaks up and tries to say he really does care for her. Felicia shakes her head and tells her not to speak for him. Bridget adds that they tried to stay away from each other to make her happy. But, like she said, they should have been honest.
Felicia counters with okay, lets be honest. The truth is Bridget would have no interest in Dante right now if Nick were available. Bridget confides this is not about Nick. But Felicia declares that she told Dante she was still hung up on Nick and that is why she turned down his proposal. Bridget shouts, proposal? Do you really want to go there? She suggests they talk about it. Does it bother her that the ring on her finger belongs to Bridget? Felicia smarts that if she wanted it, Bridget would be wearing it! And Stephanie points out that unlike Bridget, Felicia was able to make a commitment to Dante. Then things get ugly with a low blow as Bridget accuses her of making a commitment with her clothes off and posing for someone. Felicia also quips yeah that Bridget is such an expert two marriages, two divorces. Dante tells them to stop. This is not getting them anywhere. Stephanie concurs and tries to get Bridget to go. Bridget says no. Stephanie retorts, no.? No! Havent you caused enough chaos today? She gives her a tongue lashing and says she is just like her mother. That whatever Bridget wants, Bridget gets. The whole world revolves around her? Nothing and no one is going to stand in her way! Brooke intercedes and tells her she better not dare speak to her daughter like way.
Brooke accuses her of finally showing her true colors. She knew it was just a matter of time. Stephanie points out that Brooke doesnt even know what is going on here. Brooke says she knows that she just insulted her and her daughter. Stephanie is appalled that is what Brooke is concerned about. She just proved her right. Dante tells them all to stop. This situation is getting out of hand. Stephanie retorts is that what he calls it, a situation? She thought it was his wedding day. Bridget joins in and tells them all to stop it. This is NOT what she wanted to have happened. Stephanie says too bad that she didn’t think that through before she started making out with Dante.
Dante offers that it wasnt like that. Bridget echoes again that it was a good-bye kiss. She was willing to sacrifice her happiness for Felicia. Looking her in the eye, Stephanie says she loves Bridget but she vows that she will NOT let Bridget do this to Felicia. She has been through too much already. Brooke points out that so has Bridget. Felicia says Bridget gave him up; she didnt want him. She tells Brooke that she and Dante share a son and hes made a commitment to them as a family. She tells Bridget she cant have a change of heart. This is not a game. She doesnt get a do-over. You had your chance. You blew it! She tells her that hes made a life with her now, so Bridget needs to be a frigging grownup and deal with it. Dante steers Bridget out the door and then turns back and glares in disgust at Felicia.
Sipping her champagne, Sally quips to the group that they really can never call it a Forrester wedding until one of them charges out of here in floods of tears. Darla doesnt think that is funny. Aldo maintains that Dante really does love Felicia and the little boy, but he is IN love with Bridget.
In Brookes office, Bridget tries to come to terms. Dante finds her. She asks what is wrong with her? Is this what she has really become? Its her sister and its her wedding day! She cries she really thought she could let him go; she really, really, wanted to. Let Felicia have him and be happy with their son, but then she heard the vows and she didnt know .she confesses it just broke her heart. As much as she really wants Felicia to be happy, she wanted him to say those words to her. She says she know she doesnt have the right after everything she has put him through and what this would do to Felicia, but ..she cant deny how she feels about him anymore. I want you. I want to be able to make love to you and be your wife .and help you raise your son and start a life with you. She knew he could see it and she was so blind. So caught up in the wrong man. But, she is so glad she sees it now. “You’re the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I want to be with you.” She pours out her undying love for him and not caring who might come in and find them, they seal it with a passionate kiss.
