Ridge and Brooke tell Felicia and Thorne about Eric stepping down. Felicia tells him she didnt want their dad to leave the company, just Donna. Ridge tells her he can stay on to design if he wants. He and Brooke plan to make the announcement of their marriage and the change in command tomorrow. Thorne says the trip to New York must not have gone the way dad wanted. Ridge told him Eric had to finally face it.
Eric is mixing a martini, when Donna comes out of the bathroom. He asks if she wants one and she declines. He tells her to thank her friend Owen for the gin, since he didnt realize he was out. He says he feels so empty. Donna tells him to forget about the document Ridge shoved in his face. Eric tells her after she left he signed it. Youre giving the company to Ridge and Brooke? He tells her theyre announcing it at the board meeting tomorrow. Donna tells him they cant force him out. He tells her its what hes groomed Ridge for all his life. Donna tells him Ridge has been pushing him. He loves the company as much as I do. He deserves his shot. Donna asks him what does he want? Eric tells her the company is in trouble. He cant deny that. Donna asks him whats in his heart?
Beth and Katie are at Brookes with Hope. Nick comes by to check on Beth. Hope is excited to see him. Katie tells him she thought he was still on his honeymoon. He tells her hospital duty called. He tells Katie she looks great. She tells him he does too. Marriage must agree with him. Beth thanks him for bringing her home. She tells him with all the doctors and new treatment she feels wonderful. She tells them she was lonely in Paris. Katie tells her shes not alone now.
Ridge and Brooke continue to explain their new phase. Theyll let everyone know this was amicable, no fireworks or tension.
Donna tells Eric its still his company. Eric says he was really fired up with the new collection. He says its not just their marriage, but Stephanies shooting, Storms death, etc. Theyve been all over the papers. Donna continues trying to convince him to reconsider. He tells her its done. He pauses and then says, I could turn this company around. Weve done it before. He says the company is his and hell be the one to say when he steps down.
Ridge tells Brooke, Thorne and Felicia seem pretty shocked. She tells him theyre just surprised Eric agreed. Ridge says its not like hes turning the company over to amateurs. Weve prepared for decades for this. Brooke agrees. She says with the business and their wedding its all coming together.
Eric tells Donna hes not stepping down. Its too soon. I have too many good years left. Donna agrees. He says it could cause a wider divide if he did step down. He says division in the family. She asks about Rick. He tells her Rick will always have a place in the company and Marcus too. She tells him she would have never imagined. He cuts her off and tells her hes changing his will to make sure Marcus is an heir too. Marcus is a great kid with potential and he wants to protect his future. Eric tells Donna he doesnt want to leave her with a mess, so she wont have to fight his family for whats hers. She tells him not to talk like that. Hell be around for ages. Eric says theyll feel betrayed and blame her for him not giving them the company. Theyre so wrong about you. She says theyre even more wrong about him, if they think hes going to give up his company. I cant imagine my life without it, Eric says.
Beth says that you think you can handle almost anything in life, until its thrown in your face. Katie says, Tell me about it. Beth tells her she handled her crisis much better than she did. Katie tells her she doesnt know who shes been talking to. Beth admits she was terrified in Paris. She would have lost herself in the darkness if Nick hadnt brought her back to her family. Nick tells Katie, You Logan women have a lot in common. She tells him that neither one of them would be there if not for him. He tells her she should give herself more credit. She says no one can accuse the Logans of being too modest. He says youre trying to make me out the hero, when you are braver than me. He talks about her standing in at the wedding. She tells him because Bridget wanted it so much. She didnt think she could do it, but it was a good thing in the end. Nick says, You did good kid. She tells him it was a pleasure. Truly. She said its a rare thing to know youre making the right choice for your family and the people you love.
Brooke and Ridge have sex in Erics office. Brooke says, Not sure this is the best way to get on your dads good side. They laugh about the fact Pam probably had her ear to the door the whole time. Ridge says he hopes she enjoyed the show. He says theyll be a repeat performance tomorrow. They talk about how Eric is giving them the company with his blessings.
Donna and Eric are in bed just after they've finished having sex. Donna tells him she loves him so much. She says she cant even remember her life without him. Im so lucky to be your wife. Eric makes no response. She looks at him and his eyes are closed. She shakes him. Oh my God! Eric!.......
