At Brookes, both Beth and Bridget are shocked when Katie stammers that she cant do this. She can not be Jacks Godmother. She says a Godmother is supposed to protect a child and shes not sure what her future holds or how long she will be around. Bridget thinks Katie is wrong and cant think of anyone whod be a better influence on Jack than Katie. And God forbid if anything happened to Katie, they will deal with that then. She wishes she agreed with that, Taylor thinks she is perfect. Katie admonishes her to stop that, stop calling her perfect. She is not perfect! Bridget says well she is for her. She would not be with her husband if it werent for Katie. Katie cant listen to this any loner and demands Bridget stop it.
At their love cabana on the beach, Marcus pulls away and tells Steffy they cant do this, not until her family supports them. Both say they have never felt like this before, but Marcus doesnt want to come between Steffy and her father. And he knows Steffy, shed walk away from everything. She tells him for him she would. He reminds her they are so different, where would this end? What kind of future would they really have together? She says she has wanted this for months, hasnt he? He says yes since the first day he laid eyes on her. Who would have thought hed come to L.A. to find his mom, get a great job and fall in love? She picks up on the word love and says her too.
Bridget seems dumbfounded and pointblank asks Katie what is wrong with her? There has to be more that is bothering her. Beth jumps in and says she thinks she knows. Shes been there. You dont know what to expect of life. Being a Godmother is a big responsibility. Bridget apologizes, but reminds Katie that people with heart transplants go on to live long, happy lives and some even have children. Suddenly interested, Katie asks is she sure? Does she think Katie could have a healthy child? Bridget says she will have to check statistics, but she is certain that she will have her own happy family someday. And until then she has the Logans, her and Nick and Jack. Beth adds its a big offer and a lot to process. She thinks they need to give Katie a little more time. Bridget backs down a little and tells Katie how much she loves her and will always be there for her. She feels like they are bonded for life. Katie tries to hide her sniffles and says she needs to be alone. Bridget says okay, but to think of what she said. She thinks it would make Nick very happy for Katie to be part of his childs life. When Bridget leaves, Katie falls into her mothers arms and cries what is she going to do?
At Taylors, she and Rick loll in bed as he was waiting for her when she returned from dropping Jack off at Nicks. He suggests a mini getaway for the two of them, one of those little cabanas at Bikini Beach very private, just the two of them and the sound of the ocean in their ears. So while Nick and Bridget have Jack, they could get away. He knows Jack has not been sleeping well so she hasnt either. He wants her to get out of the house, turn off her cell phone and just slip away and let him pamper her. That is my specialty after all.
Nick pours a stiff drink and has flashes of his days and nights with Katie, at the prom, on Catalina. Then the same with Bridget as they blur into one. Bridget enters and tells him she is exhausted, but she went and asked Katie to be Jacks Godmother and she turned her down. He mentions that he thought they were going to discuss this more before she asked Katie. She says she is sorry, but thought this was something she really needed to do. Concerned, he asks if Katie gave a reason? Bridget says Katie claimed it was because she didnt know how long she would live, but she really thinks she needs this. She didnt get through to her, but she is sure Nick can.
Beth tells Katie that she has to get a hold of herself. Katie cries that Bridget is such a good person, she is her family, she doesnt deserve this. Beth holds her and laments that none of this Kate did intentionally. Katie says, Im pregnant with her husbands child. And now she wants me to be the Godmother to his child. She thinks I am perfect. Being at deaths door was no excuse. Bridget trusted her. She encouraged them to spend time together. Why couldnt she have let that be enough? Why did she have to cross that line? Beth says she was extremely vulnerable. Neither she nor Nick intended to hurt Bridget, not in any way. Katie contends well its all caught up with them now.
Marcus seems surprised and asks Steffy if she really is in love with him? She answers yes, she has been fighting it for weeks .just a little unsure and afraid. He knew when she stood up for him when finding his mother that she was special. He chuckles that she is so beautiful and his mother warned him, dont fall in love with Ridge Forresters daughter, but he cant help it, he has.
Nick says he doesnt think he can get through to Katie any more than Bridget can. He admits he doesnt feel comfortable with this. Jack has so many women around him now. Does he really need a Godmother? She admits this is not just about Jack. This is about Katie. She is stressing about something and Bridget doesnt know what it is. But she knows the stress is not good for her heart .so please will Nick do it ..for her? Reluctantly he agrees. Hyperventilating and sobbing heavily, Katie falls on the couch asking what has she done? Shes destroyed her friend.
Steffy wants Marcus to confide in her. Whats wrong? He confesses that she has so much to lose because of him, but she doesnt see it that way. If her dad fights her on this, it wont change a thing. Marcus thinks it will as Ridge will go to the mat on this. She begs him to forget about her dad. Just think about her, about them. She says she loves him, she needs him and if he loves her, then show it. They fall back on the bed in a clinch.
Nick catches Katie crying and she admits she is a little upset. She asks him what has she done? He answers, that first, she is not alone so stop thinking that she is. He doesnt remember her asking him to make love to her on the beach. She contends she should be so happy right now. She should be excited. This is everything she has always wanted, but now its a nightmare. This is going to cause so much pain to everyone. Even if she were to lose the baby, Bridget is bound to find out. He says he doesnt want to hear her talk like this. The baby is going to be fine and she is going to be fine. She continues wildly that this is going to break Bridgets heart .the woman who sacrificed so much for her. He asks her to believe in something he said earlier. This is going to work out. He doesnt know how, but it will. They can have faith in that.
Katie asks if hed like to hear the worst part? He quips hed honestly rather hear the best part. She answers it is sort of both. The crazy thing is their baby exists against all odds. And that is amazing. She wakes up every morning and all she can think of is that she is going to have a baby. As guilty as she feels and as much as she doesnt want to hurt Bridget, she has no regrets. She just cant regret that she is going to have his child.
