The Bold & The Beautiful Update Friday 10/13/06

At the Big Bear cabin, Thorne stands in shocked disbelief at what Taylor just said she was the one driving the car that killed Darla. She stammers that she didnt mean to.
At Phoebes request, Stephanie shows up at Taylors house. She expects to see Taylor and assures Phoebe that she thinks it is only natural that Phoebe be a little upset at seeing her mother out with someone other than her father. Phoebe assures her she is okay with Uncle Thorne, that isnt it. Stephanie is upset when she realizes that Taylor is probably confessing to Thorne.
Carrying the ring box around in his hand, Thorne goes through almost every emotion silent with disbelief, shock, anger, confusion and finally repeats what Taylor said she was the one driving the car that killed his wife. The woman I just proposed to .the woman that has been supporting me and my daughter ... counseling us?....the woman I have fallen in love please, please, Taylor, for Gods sake, tell me you are making this up. Please, tell me you are lying. She has to admit the only lie is the one she has been living. He turns away in disgust. She continues that she told herself that it was the right thing not to tell him, but she knew it wasnt. God, she wanted to tell him so many times. He states it was her, it was her. She hit Darla, she MURDERED his wife!
Stephanie explains that if Taylor tells Thorne, hell never forgive her. Once he hears the truth, he wont hear any of the other words about it being an accident. Hector comes in and overhears enough that he knows Taylor is telling Thorne the truth. He too is very upset, he KNEW she couldnt handle the guilt (yet they ALL persuaded her to lead this lie). Stephanie tells him to forget the guilt her mistake was agreeing to this lie in the first place. Hector opines then that relationship is over. Stephanie says no it isnt. What they have to do is make sure the police are kept out of this. She insists that Phoebe tell her where they are.
Thorne paces about the cabin and rails at Taylor that she was the one who helped tell Alexandria that her mother was dead. He accuses Taylor of lying to his little girl. It was YOU. YOU did it, Taylor! You killed the woman that I love---the mother of my child! She begs him to understand. He wanted to confront the person responsible, well here she is. She goes through the scenario again maybe she could have swerved if her reaction time hadnt been slowed. She could have swerved when Darla fell. Thorne is LIVID that she is saying now that Darla fell somehow blaming it on her for the accident.
Stephanie continues to hammer at Phoebe to tell her where Thorne and Taylor are. She needs to get to Thorne and talk to him face to face and maybe she can do something. Phoebe wants to protect her; that her mother wanted to handle this on her own. Shes the only one brave enough to admit they have all been lying. Stephanie quips, oh, shes decided to be brave? Well, thats good. I hope shes brave when she goes to prison. And yes she is trying to scare Phoebe. She wants her to understand the gravity of the situation. Phoebe finally tells her they are at Big Bear. Stephanie tells Hector to watch out for Phoebe, she is going to find them and try to do something about this. Before she can reach the door, Lt. Baker rings the doorbell and tells her not to let him stop her. Hes really only there to see Taylor, Hector and Phoebe. Stephanie suggests he come back later since Taylor is not there. Hector pipes up they are tired of his questions. Baker says there are NO questions and he doesnt have any more patience for the games they are playing. He knows her mother was driving the car that hit Darla Forrester. Thats the truth and everybody knows it. Now you people fess up right now or when I get my proof, and I will, your mothers going down for a very long time.
Taylor confesses that Darla did fall, but she re-emphasizes that it was her own fault as she (Taylor) had been drinking. Thorne screams at her that she KILLED Darla! And Taylor cries and admits she did not own up to it. Its unforgivable and she sees Darlas face in her windshield .her eyes looking at her in utter shock and confusion when all she was trying to do was help Taylors daughter. She repeats she is sorry. He replies, sorry? I wanted to marry you .raise my daughter with the woman who killed her mother? He questions how she could even let him love her. How could she let him plan a future with her ..and now he cant even stand to look at her! Hyperventilating, she answers that if he hates her, she hates herself too. But, at least he now knows the truth .and shes turning herself in. She laments that she has been so lost and hes the only person who has reached out to her. And hed helped her by taking her to A.A. and let her be a part of his life. She emphasizes that she loves Thorne, she loves Ally and when Taylor doesnt come around anymore, will he explain how much she misses Ally? Because, she will, she will miss them both.
She gets her cell and calls for Lt. Baker. The call is put through to the Taylor house. Hector is telling Baker that he doesnt have enough evidence to book Taylor on these baseless accusations. Baker tells them he will as he is tired of wasting his time and the taxpayers money doing this dance with you people. He tells them if Phoebes mother had come forward earlier, he might have let her plead out. Or asked the D.A. to make a sentencing recommendation. He could have made the situation a whole lot simpler, a lot less difficult. They could have done the same, but they didnt. So, hes going to repeat it, when he gets the proof, he is going to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. When he takes the call from Taylor, she tells him she is responsible for Darlas death. He asks permission for him to turn up the speaker so all can hear her confession for the record. She agrees and confesses that it was her that was driving the car; she killed Darla. He thanks her and tells her to stay put, hes bringing her in. He calls headquarters and tells them to notify the Big Bear P.D. He wants them to arrest Dr. Hayes and he rattles off a litany of felonies gross, vehicular manslaughter obstruction of justice .driving under the influence ..leaving the scene of a crime. Phoebe cringes and holds tight to her grandmother crying on her shoulder.
Thorne is silent and speechless as Taylor says that she knows confessing wont bring Darla back, but when she goes to prison it will give him some closure that he needs. And if its any retribution, she will never have closure. She will rot in hell; she already is in hell. She screeches that Darlas death haunts her every day. She doesnt eat, she doesnt sleep, she is sick every day. And most of all, she knows she is never going to forget that she took a little girls mommy away from her ..on her birthday! And she stole that joy from Darla of ever seeing her grow up. She will never see her daughters first day at school or her graduation or wedding. And she will never have grandchildren. Taylor opines that she will NEVER get over what she did to Thorne, but hes got to know it was an accident. She would never have destroyed his family. And she really did fall in love with him. Wherever she goes, she will be praying for him, that he will find real love. Somebody who deserves him and he can trust again. That you will be ..youll be in my heart .forever! He takes one last long look and walks out. She sinks to the hearth weeping and awakes her fate.
