Felicia pops back into the doctors office and Bridget reveals that she is indeed pregnant, but she hasnt told her mother yet. Nick is supposed to be doing that as they speak. Nick is being so mysterious and slow in telling Brooke that she is scared. He finally tells her that perhaps this is going to take longer than he thought and she should cancel her meeting and come on over to The Marlin when she is finished and they can talk there. Donna bursts in with an armload of skimpy clothes before they are through, and he rushes off.
At Taylors, Stephanie confronts Shane and he asks if she wants to make a deal? She thinks that would be a good idea. He remarks that he doesnt want to tell the authorities anything. She fires back that she doesnt want to pay taxes either, but she does. He says this isnt about money. She asks then what is it about? Shed like to know so they can settle it once and for all.
Bridget laments to Felicia she just wants a father for her baby. Felicia agrees with her and says she knows Nick would never bale on her. Bridget tries to rationalize this that her mother will be real understanding about this. This is a very unconventional situation and shes not a conventional type of person so she will be able to accept a child by Bridget. Felicia reminds her thats a stretch, shes sorry to say, a big one!
Nick boards The Marlin, catching Harry reading a book, and he tells him that he needs him to hit the road, Jack. He needs his privacy. Hes telling Brooke the truth tonight about everything. Harry thinks that is admirable, but dangerous. But, its great that hes going to come clean and he thinks his beautiful wife will forgive him if he begs hard enough. Nick swears him to secrecy ..oh, by the way, Bridget is pregnant.
Shane denies that he wants anything. He just wants to be friends, thats it. She tells him people make friends for many, many reasons, but rarely out of fear. He says he really, really likes Taylor and Phoebe too. Stephanie wants to know what that really, really means? He admits shes pretty and really sweet. He says the night of the accident, he thought maybe she was going to be stuck-up but she locked the door of her car so what was he supposed to think? And Taylor goes to the police but doesnt tell them exactly what happened. So here he thinks is this young girl from a rich family who thinks they are above the law. And he has a piece of information that could help things out. Ohhhhhh, Stephanie now sees he is finally admitting it. He says he didnt want to until he got to know the family. She ponders what is going to happen when one day Taylor and Phoebe ask him to leave? Is he just going to just go away and never be heard from again? How stupid do I look?
Felicia isnt as confident as Bridget. She warns Bridget that her mother is very self-aware and she is going to feel betrayed. Shes not going to let anyone off easy. Brooke finds it ironic that Donna is asking her to help pick an outfit to wear to help her seduce Ridge. Donna begs; hes coming home tonight. A short trip, then back to Europe. Donna conveys they are not sleeping together. They are just getting to know each other, becoming friends, the way a healthy relationship should be. Brooke wonders why they are talking about this? She remarks because she and Ridge could mean something to each other, but there is something standing in the way .and that is Brooke.
Harry wonders if Nick couldnt just keep this quiet? Nick opines so honesty is okay as long as the stakes arent too high? Harry jokes that come on if you put him in front of a firing squad, he might be inclined to lie a little. He tells Nick that hes a good man who made a mistake. He just has to hope that Brooke will see it that way.
Bridget asks Felicia if she thinks Brooke and Nick are going to break up no matter what Nick says? Felicia points out the facts. When her mother picked Nick out over Ridge, it was by a nose .and only because he seemed more dependable. Ridge was always messing up and letting her down. But, once she finds out Bridget is pregnant and Nick is the father ..well, shes turned her back on Ridge for a whole lot less. Bridget admits and now Ridge is available. Bingo, so it could happen. The big Ridge and Brooke reunion could happen for real. And not a moment too soon before Donna stakes her claim on him.
Donna holds up an outfit and asks Brooke her opinion. Not interested at all, Brooke tells her she really doesnt care. Just dress up all sexy and see where it gets her. She goes further and says she is a married woman and she has no claim on Ridge, so just leave her out of this. Donna tells her she is scared this isnt going to work. Brooke stalks off and shuts the door telling her to just leave her out of this!
Nick opines that perhaps Brooke will be open-minded about this? Harry scoffs lets see the step-mother to her own grandchild? Nick quips that stranger things have happened in this family. Harry says, yeah, well you know, all I say is good luck, compadre, and Im glad Im single. Harry tells him he means it, good luck, he doesnt want to see him unhappy. Nick says that makes two of them.
When Shane admits when he first came here, he had some ideas, Stephanie jumps to the thought of blackmail. He asks if he has asked for one dime? She says no, but he must think he can. He admits he thinks he could. So when is Stephanie going to get off his back about this whole thing? Does she want him to go to the police? Is that really what she wants? She bluffs and says yes she does. Then she grills him about that night, where he was, how far away in the bushes, how dark was it, was there other traffic, could be really see that well, how fast was Taylors car going? She ends up telling him he concocted the story, and whos out there to prove her a liar? He claims it is the truth and she says it is HIS version of the truth. And why didnt he just walk over to the police that night and tell them what happened? She wags her finger at him and warns him that its a crime to withhold material evidence such as this, but then he sees easy money, doesnt he? She is sure that is why he got the job as gardener for the landscaping company so he could blackmail Taylor. He denies anybody is going to blackmail anybody. She wants to know why? Because all of a sudden he has a revelation. He hasnt been forthright with evidence? That makes him an accessory after the fact.
Brooke gets to The Marlin before Harry leaves and is introduced to her. He tells her they will chat another time and she invites him by the house sometime. Nick tells him to cast off the dock lines for him. Brooke asks if they are going somewhere and wants to know where?
Thorne stops by briefly with flowers for Taylor but Stephanie manages to dismiss him pretty quickly. She does tell him she is very happy for him and Taylor and gives him a quick kiss. Shane remarks to her that he can see she is the sort of mother that would do anything for her son. And he knows she wants to see the two of them together, and he swears to her that he wont say a word. She looks and tells him, no, you wont. He tells her that he is serious. He has found something really great here. Nice people live here and he has found warmth and acceptance. Those are things he has never had before in his life. She quips that is SO touching. Phoebe is her granddaughter .shes a sweet, innocent girl in many ways. Sternly, she tells him to stay away from Phoebe. If he lays one finger on her and she finds out about it, he wont ever know what hit him. He shakes his head and sincerely tells her he promises her he wont do anything to upset Phoebe. She gives him one last look of disdain, sets the flowers down on a table and leaves. He smirks, walks and picks up a photo of Phoebe and in mockery says, I aint going to lay a hand on your precious Phoebe. Dont you worry. Im going to give her a lot more than that.
The Marlin stops not far from the Bay, just a few miles out, and Brooke still tries to get Nick to tell her why they came out and what he needs to talk to her about. He said it was something wonderful, but now hes scaring her. He convinces her to sit down as he slowly explains that he always thought he knew himself pretty well. He had a personal code of ethics he tried to live up to and he thought hed done a pretty good job of doing that. She agrees, that is what she loves about him, his integrity. And he says he had promised her over and over that hed never let her down. But he has. Hed let her down in a big way. He goes on that he has done something he is not proud of. Something she is going to have a hard time dealing with. And he just hopes and prays she can find some kind of understanding because he believes that is the kind of woman she is. If anyone can find a miracle in something, its her. And hes going to need her to do that. Im going to need you to find that miracle inside. Because, if you dont, were not going to make it together.
