At Eric’s office, Donna continues to beg Eric not to give up on them. Eric is angry and tells her she must think love is blind. He’s not stupid he yells. Donna doesn’t understand why he’s so angry. Eric flashes back to seeing what he thinks is her and Owen getting cozy on top of the desk in Owen’s office. Thorne listens outside the door. He calls his mother at the mansion and tells her to get down there right away, since Eric is going to make his decision. Stephanie says she should just stay and pack, because if Eric was going to choose her he’d come there. Thorne insists she get down there right away and hangs up on her.

Katie is in Brooke’s office, where she inquires if the wedding is still on. Brooke tells her yes and lets her know it’s the day after tomorrow. Katie is pleasantly surprised and asks if she can help. Brooke tells her that would be great. She’d love her help. They hug as Katie congratulates her.

Ridge and Felicia enter the mansion looking for Stephanie. They see her packed suitcases and are glad she hasn’t moved out yet. Ridge calls her name, with no answer. Felicia tells Ridge he should talk to their father. Ridge says he’s tried. Felicia says as one tormented Forrester husband to another, maybe Eric will listen. Otherwise, it doesn’t look good for Stephanie.

Donna tells Eric she doesn’t understand, since everything this morning looked good. Eric says he thought so too, but he can’t overlook the truth. Eric says he can’t give her what she wants. He can only tolerate so much. Donna says she wants him. Eric says he’s going back to Stephanie. Donna is shocked. She says, why? He was going to choose her last night. She reminds him of the kiss. Eric tells her not to make it harder than it is, and asks her to leave. Donna is tearful as Eric turns his back on her. Donna slowly leaves.

Thorne calls Ridge and tells him something big is going down. He tells Ridge to find Felicia. Ridge says she’s there with him. Thorne excitedly tells him for both of them to get down there, since they won’t want to miss this. He asks if Stephanie is there. Ridge tells him no. He says good. She’s probably on the way down there. He hangs up as Ridge looks curiously at the phone.

Brooke says all the Logan girls should be happy today. Katie says if Donna got back with Eric, they could all be at the wedding together. Katie says unless it’ll be too awkward. Brooke says it could be a new beginning for everyone. There’s tension with Ridge and Rick, plus Bridget and Katie. Ridge will want Stephanie there, but if Donna is there that could cause friction. Brooke says she can overlook all this, because all she’ll be feeling is joy at the altar. Katie is happy with the plans.

Donna is in Owen’s office, where she’s crying on the couch. Thorne bursts in and wants to know what’s wrong. Donna tells him he can call his mother and give her the good news. Thorne tells her she’s young and can find someone else. Donna tells him she wants Eric. Thorne wants to know if Eric told her he had chosen Stephanie. Donna doesn’t answer, but muses about how Eric wasn’t worried this morning about Owen. She doesn’t understand why he would have hired Owen. It doesn’t make sense. Thorne suggests it was a test. Donna says nothing happened. Thorne says maybe Eric was testing himself, but decided he couldn’t get over it. Donna says she’s not giving up, until she finds out what happened. She knows something is going on, she can feel it. Thorne looks at Donna in questioning manner.

Stephanie knocks and enters Eric’s office. She says she just came down to see him for a moment and say she loves him. Stephanie says she’s not trying to be facetious, since they’ve been through this before. She just wanted to wish him the best of luck, since it is what it is. Eric asks if she’s going to ask him to reconsider. Stephanie says that wouldn’t change anything. She does want to let him know, when they almost lost him she realized how precious his life is to her whether they’re together or not. Eric tells her she’s incredible. She tells him that’s not necessary. Eric walks over and rubs her arms and says it is. He’s let her down so many times. Stephanie says they’ve come through for each other many times too. They did the best they could for themselves and their family. Eric says he can do better. Stephanie looks questioningly at him. Eric says it’s not over for them. They have the rest of their lives to get it right, if she’ll take him back. Stephanie looks shocked. She rubs Eric’s shoulder and then reaches up to kiss him. They hug as she looks like she could cry, she’s so relieved.

Stephanie sits on the couch and says she thought he chose Donna. He just let her rattle on. Eric says she was being gracious in defeat. He was speechless. Stephanie laughs and says baloney. She says when she sat by his bed in the hospital, she thought about the good and bad. She can’t believe she agreed to share the house with Donna. Eric laughs and says he can’t either. Stephanie jokes she liked him better in the coma. Eric laughs and says she didn’t lose him. She thought she had and it hurt. What really hurt was thinking he had moved on to someone that could make him happier than she ever could. Eric says she was right about Donna. She was right about him and everything. She jokes she’s always right. She laughs and kisses him. Eric says he was selfish. He thought he was right and knew everything. Now he does. Stephanie looks pleased as he touches her nose and rubs her face.

Katie and Brooke are discussing wedding plans, when Donna comes in. They ask what’s wrong and she tells them Eric ended the marriage. They both are shocked. She cries as she tells them she doesn’t get it. The last couple of days she thought Eric wanted their marriage to work. Brooke tells her how sorry she is. Donna says she doesn’t understand what happened.

Felicia listens outside Eric's office door, while Thorne stands by. Ridge comes up and asks what’s going on. Felicia says she’s going in. She opens the door. Eric and Stephanie are on the couch and Ridge asks if everything is alright. They both say yes. Thorne asks if Eric made the right decision to be with Stephanie. Eric says yes. Felicia is happy and says, “Thank God.” She rushes over to hug her mother. She tells her dad she knew he wouldn’t let Stephanie down. Ridge agrees it’s great news. Eric says his personal life caused a distraction for a while and he lost focus. The kids all agree they weren’t going to let that happen. He’s too important to them. Stephanie says she seconds that. Eric says he won’t forget what it was like to open his eyes and see them all there. He almost forgot what it was like to have their faithfulness and loyalty. He thanks them. Ridge says it’s good to see them so happy again. Felicia offers to take her mother back to the house to unpack her bags. Ridge suggests leaving them packed and taking a trip. Eric stands apart, deep in thought. Thorne asks him for the truth. Did he really feel good about it? Eric rubs his eyes and says he’s okay with it. Thorne says the way that it happened. Eric cuts him off and says Donna betrayed him. He saw it with his own eyes. He doesn’t want to think about it or talk about it again. He walks away as Thorne says nothing.

Katie asks if Eric gave any kind of explanation. Donna tells her sisters Eric just said it was over and he was going back to Stephanie. Katie asks if it’s because of her and Owen. Donna grits her teeth and says there is no her and Owen. Brooke says, but Eric thinks there is. Donna gets angry and says Eric didn’t think that last night or this morning. Something happened to change his mind. Brooke asks if Eric gave any indication he was going to choose Stephanie? Donna says in a frustrated tone, no, that’s what’s so confusing. Brooke asks if Eric was emotional. Donna says he was furious and Thorne thought maybe it was because Eric couldn’t get over seeing her with Owen. Donna says the way he looked at her was so cold. It was in his eyes. She cries and says she doesn’t know why. Katie comes up behind her and puts a comforting arm around her.

Thorne makes a phone call and tells his mother Donna hasn’t left the building yet. Stephanie suggests she’s with Owen, since that’s where she usually goes for comfort. Thorne says Donna is out of the picture. The big focus is to get Ridge back in the company. Stephanie asks if that’s how Thorne got to Eric, since she knows she had something to do with this. Thorne evades the question and says he knows they belong together and Eric loves her and the family. Stephanie looks seriously at her son. Eric interrupts and walks over with Felicia to see what they’re whispering about. Stephanie jokes and says she was telling Thorne how happy she was, she might go up and yell it from the rooftop. The family all continue to joke lightly with each other. They’re all smiles, talking about the holidays. Stephanie says who would have thought a few weeks ago they would be talking about the holidays together. She’s not complaining she says. Eric hugs her as the kids happily look on.

Donna sits with her head in her hands and says she was so sure Eric wanted her and their marriage. How could she have been so wrong? Katie looks sad for her. She stoops down and says she’s so sorry for her. Donna says Eric loved her and made her feel important, loved and desirable. She cries as Brooke looks sad and concerned too. Donna can’t believe after making it through everything they did Eric would end things now. It doesn’t make sense. Donna says there has to be a reason. Something else is going on. Brooke asks, but what. Donna says she doesn’t know. She is frustrated and tells her sisters again it doesn’t make sense.

Eric turns from his family and runs through his mind how he believed in Donna. He can’t believe another man was all over her and she lied to him. How could she do that to him? Donna is still in Brooke’s office as she wonders aloud how Eric could question her love. She doesn’t understand. Eric questions how Donna could lie to him. Did she ever love him? Donna says it can’t be the end. She loves Eric so much. She whispers, “Eric I love you” as she continues to cry.
