Taylor is in Ridges office, where she plants a deep kiss on him after telling him he could come back to her if Brooke ends up with Nick. Ridge is speechless.
At Owens apartment, Donna tells Stephanie she doesnt want to divorce Eric. Shes scared of what Pam might do. Donna is upset and turns on Owen. She angrily tells him he wasnt supposed to let anyone know. Stephanie doesnt understand how Pam could be blackmailing Donna. Donna tells her Pam threatened to hurt Eric. Since Pam is responsible for his coma, she doesnt want to take any chances. She adamantly asks Stephanie to leave and not say a word. She tells Stephanie that Pam wants her with Eric and no one else. Shell hurt anyone Donna loves. Stephanie thinks she can reason with Pam and Owen agrees. Donna thinks it will set Pam off. Stephanie says Pam is ill and she needs her help as well as Donna. Donna begs Stephanie to just take Eric and let it go. Stephanie looks confused and surprised at Donnas request. She reluctantly leaves. Owen doesnt know what to say either. He just looks at Donna.
Rick bursts in Taylors bedroom with samples of wedding cakes to surprise her. Hes surprised shes not there. Over at Forrest, Ridge asks Taylor what shes doing. He continues to lightly hold her by the arms Taylor tells him something shes wanted to do for a long time, but didnt realize until this moment. She asks what happened to them. Ridge says things change. Lives change. Theyre marrying different people. Taylor breaks away from Ridges arms and tells him to forget the kiss or that she was ever there. She heads for the door. Ridge asks what if he cant forget. She stops and smiles at him. She says she knew he felt it too. The feelings are still there.
Eric sits alone in his office at Forrester staring at the divorce papers. Stephanie knocks and enters. She asks if shes interrupting. Eric tells her hes waiting on Donna to sign papers ending their marriage.
Donna tells Owen he had no right to tell Stephanie. Pam is dangerous and could hurt someone. Her cell rings and its Pam. She wants to know what Stephanie wanted. Donna tells her nothing and she got rid of her. Pam can see Donna through her binoculars. Pam doesnt believe Donna and asks again why Stephanie would come back. Donna tells her Stephanie wants to make sure she goes through with the divorce. She should be meeting Eric now to sign papers. Pam gets agitated and tells Donna she warned her to stay away from Eric. Donna tells her she has to sign the papers in person as Eric requested. Pam yells at her no, no, no. Donna tells her in order for her to be done with Eric; she has to sign the divorce papers. Pam agrees, but warns her not to try any funny business. As she hangs up, Pam grabs her head in pain. Owen asks Donna if shes going to sign the papers ending her marriage. Donna asks what choice she has.
Ridge and Taylor sit on the couch together. Ridge says her shes the mother of his children. Hes never denied their connection or what they had. Taylor tells him she feels like she just woke up. Its always been him. Shes measured everything else by what made her happy with him, even if it wasnt consciously. The kiss brought back all the passion and love she felt before. She tells Ridge she misses their family and life together. Ridge says he does too. Taylor cant believe the emotions and feelings shes repressed. She knows she had to do it, since it hurt so much it helped preserve her emotional wellbeing. Ridge listens intently. She tells him right at this moment just looking at him and touching him it seems like nothing changed at all.
Eric gets the call Donna is on her way up. He tells Stephanie she can escape now if she wants. Stephanie says shell stay if its okay. Donna comes in with Owen. Eric is angry and questions how she could bring her lover there. Owen speaks up and says hes a paralegal and Donna didnt have an attorney. Erics attorney is present. Donna says she doesnt need a lawyer since, she knows Eric will be fair. Owen says he needs a few moments to look at the documents. Donna grabs them and says she just wants to sign them and get out of there. Owen shows her where to sign. Eric tells her hes keeping the house. Donna just nods agreement. Eric gets mad and says thats it, were ending our marriage and she has nothing to say. Donna just sits quietly. Stephanies expression shows confusion and concern.
Taylor caresses Ridges hair and face. Ridge grabs her hand and says, Taylor in a tone that suggests she stop. He continues to hold her hand, but says he and Brooke are planning their wedding. Ridge tells her they accepted Jack into their family. Taylor reminds him about the party and how its only the beginning of issues with Nick. Taylor tells Ridge to remember how it made him feel when Nick and Brooke gravitated towards each other. This will be every holiday and birthday for the rest of Jacks life. Taylor says she knows he loves the holidays and special times together. He wont want drama. He likes a calm environment with the ones he loves. So does she. She reminds him of the times they shared with the kids, just getting away for quiet times. He smiles in remembrance. Taylor tells him he cant have that with Brooke. Hell always have to deal with Nick. Ridge tells her what ever is going on right now has nothing to do with Nick. Taylor tells him she loves him and shes not going to apologize. She wont deny whats true anymore, since its reality. Ridge shakes his head in frustration. Taylor tells him maybe Brooke was right. In a perfect world she would rather be with him. Ridge tells her its not that simple. He gets up and puts some distance between him and Taylor. She says Brooke has a tremendous hold on him. He laughs and asks her what about Rick. Theyre engaged. Taylor says she cant marry Rick, if shes having these feelings. Not if shes hoping theres a chance with him. Ridge lays his head back in wonderment at Taylors words. She reminds him how many times theyve separated and found their way back to each other. It could happen again. All you have to do is want it as much as I do. Ridge looks at her in bewilderment.
Ridge smiles and tells Taylor shes right. What they shared, theres no comparison. He remembers all the beautiful memories. Hes feeling what shes feeling too. Taylor smiles. However, he says his future is with Brooke. Taylors smile fades. Ridge says he knows she thinks theyre headed for difficult times and hell be disappointed again. He says its not going to happen that way, because he wont let it. Taylor tells him Brooke has him snowed. Ridge says he made a promise not just to Brooke, but himself and Jack to do better and act differently. No more ultimatums or flying off the handle. Taylor walks closer and gets in his face. She coyly asks if nothing she said. Ridge grabs her arms and cuts her off by saying her name. He tells her he loves her and he always will. He cups her cheek and head with his hand. She says that means there is a chance for them. Ridge frowns. Taylor tells him she wishes he would stop being afraid. Eventually hell realize a relationship with Brooke is just a fantasy. She plans to tell Rick she cant marry him tonight. Shes not going to live her life in a fantasy. She tells Ridge when it all falls apart with Brooke; hell know where shell be. She gets close to his lips and whispers, Ill be right here waiting for you. She softly kisses his lips and lovingly holds his face in her hands. Ridge looks solemn, but doesnt say a word. Taylor walks out and leaves him standing there deep in thought.
Donna tells Eric theres nothing to say. Eric says if shes so certain about everything to just sign the damn papers. Donna hesitates and signs only one paper. Eric gets frustrated at Donnas hesitancy. He grabs the pen and writes his own name as everyone looks on. He tells her, Like this Donna. He yells at her to sign it. Donna does so. She looks at Eric sadly. He walks out. The attorney tells them shell file the papers today. Donna asks Stephanie if shes enjoying this; if it makes her happy. Stephanie says no. Donna asks why shes here then. Stephanie says she doesnt want Eric this way. What Pam did is wrong and shes mentally ill. Stephanie wants to find her and help her. She can help protect her. Donna cant believe Stephanie thinks Pam needs protecting. What about her? Stephanie says she has a plan, but shell need Donnas help. Donna asks why she should trust Stephanie. Stephanie tells her because she has no one else and shes going to give her what she wants most in this world. Eric. She suggests Donna help her.
Taylor is home. In the bedroom, she spies a piece of cake next to her and Ricks picture. He comes out of the bathroom shirtless, appearing like he just showered. He tells Taylor he was going to surprise her with samples of their wedding cake. Taylor smiles, but is quiet. Rick rambles on about he hopes shes hungry, but maybe she had too much cake at Jacks birthday party. Taylor drops her head and tells him that isnt it. She tells him how sweet it was for to bring the cake. He always does such sweet things for her. Ricks expression turns grim as he senses something. Taylor says hes always coming to her rescue. He treats her like gold. Rick moves closer and asks whats going on here. He tells Taylor to talk to him. She tells him shes sorry, but she cant go through with the wedding. She cant marry him. Rick looks stunned.
