At the beach house, Rick and Steffy are alone. They kiss, but decide before things go any further, they better find out where Ridge might be.
At Brookes, she and Ridge continue discussing the situation with Rick. Ridge cant understand why Brooke continues to advocate for Rick. He asks what if the roles were reversed, could she just get over the death of her child at the hands of one of his children. Brooke says maybe she couldnt. However, if it meant losing him, shed have to. Ridge says thats what it comes down to, whether he can accept Rick. Before Brooke can respond, her cell phone rings. She sees its Rick. Shes guarded with her answers, but lets him know shes fine, but Ridge is there. She says theyll talk later.
Rick tells Steffy theyre in the clear, since Ridge is with his mom. He kisses and hugs her feeling very confident. She looks less sure of the situation.
In Erics office, Thorne is still upset over not being made President. Eric tells him not to blow things out of proportion. Owen, Donna, Marcus, and Pam are there too. Thorne is angry and says it was a done deal. How can he not be mad? Donna defends Brooke and says she changed her mind about firing Rick. Pam jumps in and says Rick got to his mother. She says Rick is spoiled and a user. Donna tells her thats enough. Pam keeps ranting saying he killed Phoebe and sent Marcus off to Paris. He did that to make moves on Steffy and thats how Phoebe ended up dead. Now Rick steals the presidency from under Thornes nose. Thorne says Amen. Pam gets in Erics face and says Rick needs to be taught a lesson. Eric is angry too and tells Pam shes talking about their President. Rick is a good business man. They will treat him with respect or say nothing. Hes tired of all the whining. Eric walks out of his office with Donna close on his heels. Everyone stands there taken aback at Erics response. Thorne says hell treat Rick with respect, just like he treated him.
At Brookes, Ridge realizes she was speaking with Rick. Brooke apologizes. Ridge says hes probably gloating. Brooke says she doesnt want to fight about Rick. Ridge agrees, but says Rick knows hes a hot button issue for them. Rick likes anything that will set him off, especially going after Steffy. Brooke says she tried to separate the two kids. She figured Rick would still see Steffy on the side, if he wasnt working at Forrester. Ridge still didnt like her asking Steffy to leave. Ridge says Rick would still try seeing her anyway.
At the beach house, Steffy and Rick continue kissing. He says her dad should be tied up for quite a while, since he and Brooke are trying to iron things out. Rick jokingly looks around to make sure Stephanie isnt hiding out. Steffy laughs. Rick says theyre good to go. Steffy questions what he means. Rick kisses her more urgently and says wherever this leads them.
In another office at Forrester, Donna catches up with Eric. She tells him not to raise his blood pressure, he should chill. Eric says he knows how Rick treated Marcus was despicable. Donna says she had to talk Marcus down. Marcus wanted to confront Rick. Eric says he has to believe Rick is trying to change. Donna hopes so too. She says theres a bigger problem. Its Pam. Eric blows it off by saying Pam is all bluster. Donna just cant forget all the things Pam did to him, her, and her family. Eric says it was the brain tumor and Pam hasnt been a problem lately. Donna says Pam is a psychopath. Donna begs him to get her out of the company. He says he cant do that to Stephanie. Shes family to Stephanie. His phone rings and he takes the call. Donna looks crestfallen.
Back in Erics office, the gang continues talking about what to do about Rick. Thorne paces in anger as Pam furiously crochets. Pam says something needs to be done with Rick or there will be major problems. They all agree. Owen worries hell fire him. Pam says nonchalantly, not if something happens. Marcus asks like what. She says maybe Brooke could change her mind again. Marcus talks about how Rick messed up what he and Steffy had. He gets fired up just thinking about Rick. Pam says the poor girl has no idea what shes getting into.
Rick and Steffy continue kissing at the beach house. She breaks away. They discuss what a day, but they got through it. Steffy says her dad is not okay. It was like the life was sucked out of him, when Brooke made her announcement. She defended Rick and threatened to leave the company, which made things worse. Rick says Ridge is a big boy and will get over it. Steffy isnt so sure. Rick says hes her father. He loves her and wouldnt disown her. Hell realize Rick loves her and wouldnt ever hurt her. Hell accept their relationship. Rick says theyre adults and they dont have to answer to anyone but themselves. This is their future. He kisses her with passion.
At Brookes, she and Ridge continue arguing over Rick. Ridge says shes asked him to change his attitude towards Rick. She wont do the same thing. He says Rick conned her and now Steffy. Brooke begs Ridge to see things her way. Ridge says she will always defend Rick. She feels Rick will go downhill, if she just abandons him. Ridge isnt hearing it. Ridge says Rick has his claws in her and Steffy, the two women he cares about most. Hes never felt this level of despair or hate in his life. Brooke looks shocked at the raw emotion Ridge is portraying.
Still in Erics office, Thorne says he has to get out of here. He asks if anyone wants to join him for drinks. No one accepts, but they all commiserate on how it used to be a great place to work before Rick was President. Throne encourages them to keep their heads up, since things could change. Pam looks deep in thought, as shes left alone.
Brooke tells Ridge to please tell her he didnt mean what he just said. She knows hes grieving, but he cant use that as his reason to hate Rick. Ridge says Rick is a constant reminder. Now thanks to her, he has to see Rick everyday at work. Brooke says he has to get past this. They could all go to therapy she suggests. Ridge says Rick is too calculating and dishonest to even think about family therapy. Theyre not all on the same page. Brooke disagrees with Ridges assessment of her son. Ridge says then maybe she needs the therapy, because shes definitely in denial about her son. Brooke looks stunned. Ridge says Rick is destructive. Brooke says if thats the case, they need to do something about it. She begs Ridge to open his heart to her and be a part of helping her son. Ridge holds his head in frustration. He says when Brooke asked Steffy to leave the company, she was basically condoning the relationship with Rick. Doesnt she realize what that did to him and their relationship? He lost one daughter and doesnt want to lose another one. He doesnt want to lose Brooke either. Brooke assures him he wont lose her. Ridge says hes never been more worried about that. Brooke says theyre stronger than that. Ridge says the love he feels for her and the hate he feels are colliding. Brooke says then they can find a solution together with Rick. Ridge tells her emphatically no. Rick needs to stay away from him and Steffy, period.
At the beach house, Rick continues to woo Steffy. Shes a bit uncertain where this is leading, since everyone is so against them. She suggests maybe they could accept what everyone says. Rick says theyd be miserable. They have to follow their own hearts. Rick leads her to the bedroom, where hes prepared it. He gives her several fleeting kisses and opens the door to show her a candlelight room with rose petals on the bed. Steffy is awestruck. Rick says he loves her and wants to make love to her. They kiss as Steffy is speechless.
Finally in bed, Brooke sleeps peacefully. Ridge is restless recalling past conversations with Steffy about Rick. He doesnt want to lose Steffy. He has to protect her no matter what it takes.
In his bedroom, Rick pulls Steffy inside. He tells her how much of difference shes made in his life. Steffy says she loves him and this is their time. She has tears in her eyes as they tenderly kiss. She tells Rick he has her heart and she trusts him with it. The rest is his. Rick kisses her softly and then more hungrily. She unbuttons his shirt as he sweeps her off her feet. He lays her on the bed, where they continue kissing and holding each other. Rick removes her shirt and hes bare chest. He lies back on the bed and pulls Steffy on top of him as they continue reigning kisses on each other.
