At Forrester’s, Marcus asks Ridge about a shipment to Texas that Ridge mentioned earlier.  Ridge assures him mysteriously that there will be one shipment, maybe even two.   Marcus looks wary.

Marcus later tells Steffy that her dad looked at him suspiciously, he thinks he knows the secret. She doesn’t think that is possible. He calls Donna again to have her give him a call. He tells Steffy maybe he should just leave, not just the company but L.A. Maybe back to Texas. She blurts out she doesn’t want him to go.

At Nick’s, Beth checks with Pascal to make sure he can get her on the first flight out of L.A. to Paris. She’s listening at the doorway when Katie and the sisters are all giddy and happy, Katie seems to be getting better already. They tease her about needing her mommy.

Ridge tells Stephanie about Donna having a son. She’s concerned and asks if Eric knows yet? And how long did Donna think she could keep this a secret? She asks if he is absolutely certain? He replies that he has his birth certificate. Is he going to tell Eric? You damn right, this very night.

Stephen tells Nick that he knows this woman….he was married to her….her whole life was her family and her children. Nick asks what does he know about her life in Paris? Not much, he says. Nick asks if she works? Stephen says that too is vague, she says she does a little of this and a little of that. And the Beth he knew loved her children. She would have caught the first plane to get here when she heard about Katie’s illness. Nick says and they had to practically drag her here, it just doesn’t make sense.

Donna says it’s their mom’s first day back, she thinks they should have a family get-together. Brooke is not sure; she thought her mother looked tired. Donna says if they can get all the grandkids together, she will rise to the occasion. She always has. They discuss Eric being so sweet that he won’t mind if they have a party there……or the beach the way they used to, with little finger sandwiches….the kind she used to make for the fancy parties she used to cater for. Katie says it makes no difference as long as they are together.

Stephanie knows Eric is going to be very hurt by this. Ridge says yes, not the fact that Donna has a son, but that she chose to keep this from him. She chuckles, why does this not surprise her? Ridge agrees, she’s a manipulator and the whole family knows it. She says except for Eric. He’s blind when he’s in love. At this stage in his life, she just hates to see him disappointed again. Ridge says well they will be there to help him. Stephanie says she has no illusions that it is ever going to work out for the two of them. She wants him to be happy though. Ridge states that is why his dad has always treasured her. She has always been his rock of support. He would have never accomplished any of this company without her. She thanks him, but says he is a bit biased. But she knows one thing, Donna is not the woman for Eric. Ridge maintains that she snagged him only because of her sexuality. Stephanie laughs, of course, he’s always been susceptible to that. But she would like for him to open his eyes and realize that he and Felicia and Thorne are his children, not the Logan’s. He reminds her that she is family too, never forget that.

Nick persists; Stephen must have some idea why his ex-wife didn’t come home sooner. Stephen said he can’t find fault as he himself left his whole family behind. Nick says he’s not finding fault, and Stephen has been forgiven by his family and obviously they have forgiven Beth for this. Stephen says forgiveness is not even called for. She obviously was too depressed over Storm’s death. Nick says no, when a parents loses a child, they get closer to the ones that are left, and Beth did the opposite. Stephen comments that now that she sees how happy Katie is, she won’t leave, she won’t want to go.

Beth returns to the bedroom and the girls fill her in that they want to have a party or a picnic at the beach like they used to. She seems uncomfortable and asks what about Katie? Doesn’t she need her rest, she’s not strong enough yet. Katie responds that she’s only going to be sitting on the beach, not running a marathon. She declares that she feels so much better. She’s missed her so much. So much has happened without her mother. Both Donna and Brooke express to Beth how happy they are that she is now here. Just wait until she sees all the kids. Katie quotes what her mother always told her when they were kids, “nothing in the world, not fame, not money, nothing is more important than family.” Now their family is finally reunited and she is so grateful for that.

Beth confesses to Donna that she should have come sooner. Donna wonders why she didn’t? Beth says she is sorry and looks away when she says it would be wonderful if things could always be the way they were. She is just happy that Donna and her sisters are all getting along and here together. Donna agrees it is a wonderful family reunion all because of Beth. Because of how she raised them that family always came first. Being sisters is more important than any silly argument. Beth must have said that ten times a day. And she shouldn’t be so modest. She was wonderful, take credit for it. Donna says her mother seems quiet, she must be really tired. Why doesn’t she take a nap while Donna checks on her messages. Beth declines and says no, this is her time with Donna and the girls.

Nick greets Katie and tells her just look at her, with so much color in her face. Is that rouge? Katie tells him it is called joy. He quips, “Joy? Is that the brand name – Joy? Is that what you use?” She replies it is the way she feels! Nick is very happy for her. Beth takes a phone call and is relieved to have Pascal tell her that she‘s booked very early at 8 a.m., one way, no return. Brooke catches the last few words and confronts her if she is leaving for Paris? Katie expresses her gratitude again to Nick for taking such good care of her, and now her mom and dad. She urges him to focus now on Bridget and their future. Her mom is now here for her.

Donna slips in to see Marcus and he fills her in on this shipment to Texas. It was more the way Ridge looked at him, and then added there might even be two shipments. Donna figures that means the two of them. Worried, Marcus says he doesn’t know, but he does know something is going down. He tells her maybe it’s just time he cut bait and blows outta here. And then she can just tell Eric it’s not true. She says no, she is going to introduce her son to Eric tonight.

Ridge tells Felicia to close the door, moment of truth. Eric is on his way up. And he’s told their mother and she was not surprised. Donna had been causing havoc ever since she got here. Thorne says but Eric is not going to see it that way. Ridge reminds him it has to be done anyway. What is the alternative – letting him to continue being married to a liar? Eric walks in and says good, they are all here. He wants to get this done and be brief, but he warns them that this better not be another Donna-bashing. Ridge speaks and says it has nothing to do with Donna-bashing, but the hard facts are that his new wife is causing problems for this company. He suggests his dad hear them out. And it’s not just them….Jarrett was here earlier warning them the press is going to come down heavy. Now Eric may not care about that, but they do because they care about him and what it could do. Eric assures them that he can take anything Jarrett and the press lob at him. Ridge says but that is the problem. This time it won’t be the press that is lying; it will be by his wife.

Beth confesses to Brooke that yes she is leaving tomorrow, she has to be on that plane. Brooke tells her no, can’t she see she is needed here? Beth counters with Brooke is there, her sister and her dad. They are all there for Katie. What’s with her? Doesn’t she want to spend time with them? What is it? Brooke is certainly not going to go upstairs and tell Katie that her mom is leaving. She almost died, and she’s certainly far from being out of the woods. Can Beth really get on that plane knowing that she may never see Katie again? Brooke says Katie is her youngest daughter and questions if she really loves her. Beth says of course she does. Brooke asks then how could she do this to Katie?

Eric barks just how long do they expect him to stand here and have them call his wife a liar? Ridge says they have proof. Eric says they have nothing! Felicia says yes they do. Eric wants to see it. Ridge says two words – Marcus Walton. Eric wonders what Marcus has to do with this? Are they telling him that his wife is having an affair with Marcus? Felicia admits it is definitely not an affair. Eric answers of course not and he’s had enough of this. He’s finished and they are not to do this again. Before he can leave, Ridge blurts out that Marcus is her son. Eric is floundered. He laughs, God they all three are something else. Boy, they really are a force to be reckoned with. Is that the best they can come up with?

He opens the door and finds Donna and Marcus as they come in. He’s glad they are there, now the two of them can go home. He can’t believe what Ridge just told him. These people will say anything to get back at her. They told him Marcus was her son. “The sad thing is that they don’t understand what we have together and that there are no secrets or lies between us, Donna.” He looks at her for confirmation, but she admits it is true – Marcus is her son. She gave him up for adoption when he was born. But now they have found each other again. She tells Eric she knows she should have told him. She wished she had, but she was scared. She begs him please, she needs his understanding, his commitment. This could all work out. Please don’t turn your back on me. Don’t turn your back on us.”
