The Bold & The Beautiful Update Wednesday 1/30/08

Stephanie is genuinely sympathetic to Eric over losing Donna. He states he has been an absolute fool, but he’ll deal with it. He’s touched when she asks is there anything she can do? He’s surprised that she would be willing to do that considering all that he has recently put her through. She reminds him that they have shared a lot of years together, have a great family, that’s been an incredible journey and nobody can change that. She even wonders if there is a chance they can start over? He’s amazed that she is even willing to do that. She replies, “you’re my world, Eric, my whole world. You always have been.”

Rick re-visits Taylor and asks to come in. She’s more than happy to see him until he starts asking her about the reason he is there – he’s worried about her drinking again. All she wants to know is has he told anyone? He points out that she is putting herself at risk not to mention that beautiful little boy. She says Jack is fine and that she would never do anything that would put him in harm’s way. And why is everyone always judging her? He denies that he is, but she accuses him of doing so earlier when he came over telling her how to run her life and then grabbed the bottle of alcohol and went running out the door, scaring her to death that he was going to tell Nick. Of course Rick wants her to look guilty. That way Nick would get back with his mother, he wants that as he has made it very clear.

Eric tells Stephanie that she warned him time and time again about Donna and all she wanted was sex…..her indecency…..and finding her in bed with another man. Stephanie tells him to forget about her, she doesn’t matter. Eric says he is finished with Donna. (Does anyone think perhaps it is these two people that need to go to therapy because it keeps happening over and over? And yet Stephanie is willing to sweep it under the rug as if it of no importance.)

Rick explains that he is not here to talk about Nick or his mom. It’s her drinking. Taylor tells him it was only one little drink, and who in the hell wouldn’t after all she has been through? She begs him not to use this horrible time in her life against her, not for his own agenda. She knows he does not want his mother with Ridge, but she begs him not to say anything to Nick. She could not take another loss. She’s frantic with fear that he will.

Nick can’t get a hold of either Clarke or his mother. He sees photos of Brooke and the kids and can’t shake them out of his head, even though he also holds up Jack’s photos and compares. Katie drops in on Donna and praises her for doing the right thing; she knows it wasn’t easy. Donna confides that Katie may not think that when she hears what she really did. Katie realizes that Donna did not break up with Eric. Oh God, now Stephanie will have Stormy thrown in prison. Donna doesn’t think so; she told Eric the complete truth, how Stephanie is blackmailing her.

Stephanie tells Eric it breaks her heart to see him in such pain. She knew this was going to happen. He repeats again that he’s been such a complete fool. He just wants Donna out of his life, out of the company, gone for good. She’s glad he has finally come to that realization.

Rick explains to Taylor that he is not there to hurt her or further his agenda, but because he genuinely cares for her. She’s been handed a very raw deal and he just wants to help in any way that he can. She sniffs that she’s had like this weight on her shoulders for months….and there’s been like nobody who knows what she has gone through….and she’s very sorry, she didn’t mean to get so defensive. She throws her arms around his neck with a big hug and thanks him. He tells her not to apologize, it’s he that should be. He can’t imagine what she is going through. She says that intellectually she understands the mix-up at the lab as an accident, then others that she is sliding into paranoid and it scares the hell out of her. He tells her she is a beautiful woman, a brilliant psychiatrist and this is supposed to be the happiest time of her life….she’s given her husband the child he has always wanted. So for things to work out this way is just not fair. He says he does not want to put any added pressure on her, she needs to get through this. There are people that depend on her to do that, and he wants to help her. She scoffs that it is her problem, and she will deal with it. He says that is ridiculous, he wants to be there for her, she can call day or night. Don’t think about his mom. Don’t think of him at all as his mom’s son. He’s not leaving there until she tells him that will be okay. She gives him another big hug and says okay. Nick comes in just before Rick leaves, he says he just dropped in to check up on Taylor and Jack.

Katie is speechless that Donna told Eric everything. How Stephanie was blackmailing her and that it was Storm that shot Stephanie in the first place. Has Donna lost her mind? Did she think once about her brother? Now he will go to jail because of her (NO, because of him). This is a disaster. As soon as Stephanie finds out, she will go straight to Lt. Baker. Donna says she is not going to find out. Eric is over there now telling her they have broken it off. Katie doesn’t think that will work…..just having an affair behind Stephanie’s back. She’ll figure that out.

Stephanie asks Eric if he wants to come home? She always said if things didn’t work out he could come home and she would ask no questions. She would take him back no matter what. He asks would she have him back? After all that happened? She searches his eyes and wants to be sure that he means this and wants to come home. Suddenly she lunges forward and grabs him with a big old liplock. He says they shouldn’t rush it. He wants to come home but not so fast, for his sake as well as hers. She agrees. He mentions that as far as Donna is concerned, he doesn’t want Stephanie to mention her again. It’s over, finished, and he doesn’t want her mentioned again.

Snuggled in Nick’s arms, Taylor says it feels so good, she wishes it could last forever. She just feels like everything is going to be okay. And she has an idea. Since she is so much better and she wants everyone to see she is her old self, why don’t they invite Brooke and Ridge over for dinner? (talk about butting out!) He’s dumbfounded – what a nightmare. She remarks that she is trying to end the nightmare. That’s what she is trying to do and them spending some time together would make that happen. So how about tomorrow night? Before he can say no, she thanks him. This is going to be a surprise for Brooke and Ridge…..a very special surprise.

Donna wants to make sure that Stephanie took the bait, so she’s going to call over there. Katie isn’t so sure, what if she is already on to Eric? Donna says she will call and put her on the speaker. Donna calls and tells Stephanie that she did as she asked and gave in to her blackmail and called it off with Eric. Now she has to make sure that Stephanie will go along with her part of the bargain and that Storm won’t go to prison. Stephanie says that Eric told her what Donna did. She kept her part of the bargain so Stephanie will keep hers. Storm is safe, he’s not going to jail. But, Stephanie does not want Donna to see or talk to Eric ever again.

Both girls are giddy with glee that Eric pulled it off. Stephanie bought it hook, line and sinker….which means Storm is safe and someday Donna and Eric can be together….it’s all gonna work out perfectly (NOT).

Eric calls and gloats that she should have seen him, he was terrific! She asks what number is he calling from, she doesn’t recognize it? He sloughs it off as a disposable phone, use it up and throw it away. She thinks he is the smart one, this way Stephanie won’t get the bill. Eric confides that they will do this for a few weeks, even a few months, whatever it takes….Stephanie will not settle for a shell of a marriage (isn’t that they already had?)

Stephanie knocks on his door so Eric pretends to be talking business. She just wants to tell him how happy she is that he’s back home. She tells him that she loves him and always has and always will….but then he knows that. He tells her that he needs to get some sleep; it’s been a long and trying day. She says her good-night, and when alone he says, “good-night, Donna.”
