Phoebe goes down to Shipping, where Steffy asks here whats doing down there. Phoebe asks, Why? Were you expecting Marcus? Steffy tells her to be careful before someone packs her up and ships her. Phoebe tells her seeing Marcus is really a bad idea. Steffy tells her to try acting like shes not 12. If she was seeing someone, what was wrong with Marcus? Phoebe tells her she heard what was said at Bikini Beach. Steffy asks her if she heard what she and Marcus were talking about and went to their dad? Phoebe says, Donnas his mother. Look what shes done to our family. Steffy tells her shes not Donnas biggest fan, but she hasnt done anything to them and neither has Marcus. Phoebe tells her people have the right to know who theyre dealing with and dad is taking care of that right now. Steffy rushes out.
In Erics office, he says to Marcus, Youre Donnas son? Marcus tells him yes and hes not asking for anything. Eric tells Donna there are certain things you tell a husband before marrying him and this is one of them. Donna tells him she knows she waited too long to tell him. It was wrong and shes sorry. Please dont hold this against me.
Katie asks her dad if mom seems reserved? Stephen assures her Beth must be overwhelmed with everything thats gone on. They overhear Brooke saying, Were you going to leave a note or were we even supposed to know? Stephen goes to check. Beth says, Its urgent! Brooke asks what could be more urgent than them? Beth says she has a life to get back to. Brooke tells her shed like to know what its like, since apparently it doesnt include them. Stephen comes down the stairs and asks is theres a problem? Brooke tells him Beth is leaving. He asks if she needs a ride somewhere. Brooke tells him, Beth planned to leave for Paris in the morning. Stephen asks Beth is shes okay? She says shes had a lovely time, but she didnt have enough time to pack and make arrangements, etc. Brooke asks what does she need? They can get it for her. Stephen asks to speak with Beth alone. Brooke goes up to Katies room. Beth says she wishes everyone would stop treating her like a child. Stephen tells her she has to admit it is unexpected that she just flew half way around the world to turn around and leave. She tells him if she says its necessary, then why isnt that enough? Stephen tries to explain to her about all the family has gone through and that the girls just want their mother. If you walk out now, youll be doing something irrevocable. Just ask me. I should know.
Eric says, You have a son and you didnt tell me? Donna says, My own sisters didnt even know. I was so young. I looked older and got into trouble. Mom and Storm made up a story about me doing a semester abroad, but I was really with my aunt. The adoption people didnt want me to see him. It was hard and sad, but thats what a girl did back then not to disgrace the family. Eric asks if she gave up a baby for adoption----Marcus interrupted and said he came across a birth certificate he thought was his. (Steffy appears in the doorway.) He hired a private investigator. Hes the one that alerted me to the wedding announcements in the paper. Thorne says, Oh, so you saw she had married a very wealthy man. Is that right, step-brother? Donna says, Marcus hasnt asked for a dime. Even the job was my idea. I didnt wan to lose him again. Ridge says if it was that innocent, then why have you been lying? Donna tells him its because of all of you and what youd make of it. Felicia says, Im sorry, but the two of you have zero credibility at this point. Its clear you were trying to manipulate and deceive. Steffy says, Not by Marcus. Everyone turns to look at her. Steffy says, I can vouch for what hes saying. Its true.
Katie asks Brooke if Donna is back? Brooke tells her, no. She asks who she was talking to downstairs? Brooke tells her she and their mother had a few words. Katie wants to know why. Brooke hedges and says, "I hope dad can talk some sense into her." Katie defends Beth and says it must be strange to be in LA, after all thats happened. Just give her a few days to adjust. Brooke says if shell give us a few days. She tells her about Beths plans to leave tomorrow. Katie says, but she hasnt seen Hope or RJ. She cant leave. She cant!
Stephen is talking to Beth about him leaving them and how things turned out. Beth says things are what they are. Stephen tells her he thinks the girls have worked out their differences with him, especially Brooke. Things have been better every time he comes. He tells Beth unless hes mistaken, he thinks things have been easier between them also. She tells him hes forgiven, if thats what he needs to hear. Stephen tells her they might all get closer if she stayed. He asks her if she trusts him enough to tell him whats going on? Why the talk of leaving? Beth tells him her life is in Paris. You stay with the girls. I did it for years. I dont owe anyone anything!
Ridge asks Steffy what she knows about Marcus and why she didnt say anything? Where the hells your loyalty? Steffy tells him, Im as loyal as anyone in this room. Marcus didnt do anything wrong and its not our business. Thorne says, The hell its not! Steffy tells them Marcus wanted a chance to know his mom, before it all got out of hand. Keeping the secret wasnt his idea. Donna says, No, it was mine. I wanted everyone to get to know him. Felicia interrupts and tells Marcus its nothing against him personally. A younger woman breaks up our parents marriage and a stranger pops up out of nowhere, a son no less. Marcus tells them Donna could have easily hidden him away; done anything to get me out of town. I wanted to leave, but she wouldnt let me because she cared. You may all have issues, but shes a good person. To Eric, Sir, I never cared what anyone in this room thought about me, but you. I know how much this woman loves you like crazy. Ill be okay no matter how this shakes out, but please do right by this woman.
Eric thanks him. He tells Donna how foolish it was not to bring Marcus to him right away and tell him the truth. Eric tells her he understands why she didnt. Felicia says, Well explain it to us then. Eric tells her it because of them. The three of you lurking in the shadows looking for some scandal to descend upon the family. This is not a scandal. He tells Marcus hes not a scandal, hes an honest young man and he was looking forward to getting to know him. Obviously, Im not the only person to be impressed with you. (Looking at Steffy) Thorne is incredulous. He starts talking about hes had his experiences with Donna. Eric cuts in and tells Donna she doesnt have to defend herself to them. He says theres no ironclad rule that says they had to reveal every detail of their private lives before their marriage. He didnt. Donna promises not to lose faith in them again. Ridge, Felicia, and Thorne shake their heads in amazement. Ridge asks is that all? Eric asks if hes disappointed? He questions Erics loyalty. Eric tells them he cant believe they would question his loyalty or love for them. Ridge says this time a long lost son, whats next and will anyone be in his corner? Ridge says hes had enough and walks out. Felicia and Thorne follow. Eric pulls Donna close and kisses her forehead.
Stephen tells Beth all the anger isnt gone. Beth tells him I always knew you loved me and the children. She continues explaining she has other things in Paris. Stephen wants to know if shes seeing someone? She tells him its not all about that. Katie comes down the stairs and asks her mother what is it about? Katie wants her mother to explain how she could leave at a time like this
Steffy walks into Shipping, where Ridge is waiting. Youre not going to make me feel I was in the wrong. Ridge tells her, They made you an accomplice to their lies and you let them. Steffy tells him shes not defending Donna. If she thought she was taking advantage of grandpa, then shed lay down the law. Giving up a baby is not a scandal or a crime. She told him to look at it from Marcus viewpoint, like it was a witch hunt. Ridge tells her she should have come to him. Marcus played on her sympathy. Marcus lies too smoothly. Steffy told him hes barely seen her in four years and now he wants to tell her who to be friends with? Ridge tells her, Stay away from Donnas son. I love you and am concerned about you. He kisses her and walks out.
Eric tells Donna hes deeply embarrassed. He made a terrible mistake making her live in this climate of fear. He tells Marcus its upsetting to him that hed be anything but glad to get to know him. He tells Marcus to call him Eric. Eric explains about all the media problems and other plagues they worry about. He says hes not excusing his childrens behavior, but he can understand their concerns. Marcus tells him, As of today, if you need it Ive got your back too. You dont need protecting from this woman. It was good finding a mother, who loves someone as much as she loves you.
Katie asks to speak to Beth a moment, since she apparently has a plane to catch. Beth tells her she can visit and shell be back. Katie blast her mother. She tells her she cant fly with her condition since they dont know how it will affect her heart. She tells her mother she must blame her for Storms death and thats why she wont stay. Katie tells her mother she wont even look at her. Katie tells how hard its been living with Storms heart, that she hasnt even been able to visit the gravesite. Beth tries to tell her she doesnt blame her and maybe they can visit the grave together, but Katie is being very demanding. Katie continues to pressure her mother and tells her to prove she doesnt blame her. Be the mother she should be. Beth tells her, Im not the mother you remember. Shes gone. I had a stroke, a series of them. My memories are leaving. They think it could be the onset of dementia. Theres nothing I can do to stop it. I cant be the woman I once was. I will not be a burden to you all. Let me go. Youll be better off. Just let me go
