In the Forrester Creations parking lot, Rick tells Steffy he tried to have a talk with her dad. It didnt go well. Hes headed home and will talk to her later. Rick heads to his car. Steffy watches and then turns to go back inside.
On the roof, Brooke demands Ridge tell her where her son is. Ridge looks towards the parking lot. Brooke follows his gaze and sees Rick walking towards his car. She looks at Ridge with a puzzled expression. Before Rick can reach the car, it explodes. Brooke watches horrified from the roof, while Ridge stands quietly beside her.
Steffy turns around and her eyes are wide with shock. She sees Rick lying on the ground motionless. She runs to his side. Brooke watches helplessly. Steffy kneels next to Rick and helps him sit up. Hes shaken but alive. Rick looks up at the roof, where he gives Ridge a vicious look.
Marcus is still being questioned by the Bakers in the shipping office. They hear the noise and rush off to see whats happening. They tell Marcus to stay put.
Pam and Thorne hear the explosion. Pam hopes no one is hurt.
Steffy helps Rick to his office. She wants to call an ambulance, but Rick refuses. Shes just glad hes okay. She sits in his lap and kisses and holds him.
Brooke and Ridge come to Ricks office. Brooke rushes to her son and fusses over him. She asks why he doesnt want to go to hospital. Rick tries to assure her hes fine. She notices hes shaking. Steffy says hes in shock and grabs a blanket to cover him. Ridge watches with a disgusted look on his face. Rick angrily tells Ridge he missed him, just like at the house. Ridge says its all a show. Rick is staging all of this. Rick says he didnt start the fire at the house or blow up his own car. Rick calls Ridge a bastard and says he wanted him to get in the car and leave. Ridge calmly tells him if he wanted him dead, he didnt need a bomb to do it. Steffy covers her mouth in horror.
Donna rushes to the shipping office to make sure Marcus is okay, after hearing the explosion.
Owen drowns his sorrows at the Café Rouge. Bridget spots him and goes over and sits next to him. He lets her know about Rick firing him. Shes surprised and assumes its because the surf line failed. Owen says her brother is cleaning out all the people he doesnt like. Bridget says defensively it doesnt sound like her brother. Owen says maybe not to her. She apologizes. Owen says he really felt like he found his niche at FC. Bridget understands and talks excitedly about how it is to create something no one has ever seen. Owen tells her hes surprised, since her career is in medicine. She jokes that maybe its in her genes. Owen says hell miss working at FC. He bitterly says, Thank you Rick.
In Ricks office, Rick continues to accuse Ridge of trying to kill him. Steffy defends her father. The Bakers walk in and hear the accusations. Brooke urges the officers to find out who did this to her son. The Bakers ask if Ridge still believe Rick did this himself. Rick tells them theyll have the person if theyd arrest Ridge. Brooke defends Ridge, while Steffy defends Rick.
At the bar, Bridget says she knows things have been unsettled at FC. Owen says a lot of people arent happy. Thorne should have gotten the presidency. Bridget says she loves Thorne, but wasnt sure he should have gotten the position. She says her dad has a lot of guilt over being an absentee father. Owen says its not an excuse. Lots of kids have messed up childhoods. Bridget says hes not the only one to suggest Rick is messed up or needs help. Owen says hell miss working at FC. Bridget says its not the only fashion house. She may be able to help him get on somewhere else. Her cell rings. Its Pam, who tells her about Rick. Bridget gets flustered and says shes has to go. Owen assures her hell take care of the bill. He doesnt look too surprised or concerned about the news.
In Ricks office, Brooke says she wants protection for her son. The Bakers want to know everyones whereabouts, before the explosion. She tells the Bakers they will help in any way. They can have access to their security cameras etc.
Pam, Marcus, Thorne and Donna gather in Erics office to discuss the event. Marcus says he was with the Bakers at the time, so at least he has an alibi. Pam flippantly says not necessarily, since the bomb could have been on a timer. Thorne jumps on it immediately and says no one mentioned a bomb. Donna gets in Pams face and tells her with all the things shes done to her family, she will not throw accusations at her son.
In his office alone, Rick tells his secretary he doesnt want to be disturbed. Steffy comes back in. She tells Rick shes happy hes okay. She mentions a lot of people are angry with him, including Thorne and Owen. Rick agrees he has enemies. She says her dad wouldnt try to kill him. Rick tells her he asked Ridge about marrying her. Steffy is stunned. They both agree they have a lot to live for, so nothing can happen.
Brooke and Ridge have gone to his office. Brooke is still visibly upset. She asks Ridge what took place up on the roof. Ridge tells her Rick asked to marry Steffy. Brooke looks surprised. She says he really does love Steffy. Ridge says its just damage control, since Rick knows he found out about them having sex. Brooke looks uncomfortable and admits Rick came to her earlier in the day and told her. She told Rick it was unacceptable. Ridge looks unhappy Brooke knew already.
Donna and Marcus run into the Bakers in the hall. Donna asks if theyve learned anything. Lt. Baker says Rick definitely isnt having a good day. Marcus crosses his arms and says they should feel foolish for accusing him of setting the fire. Lt. Baker says they havent ruled out that the two occurrences arent related. Donna says there are a lot of people with motive. The Bakers agree they have a lot to look into.
In Ricks office, he tells Steffy maybe he shouldnt be around her right now. He couldnt forgive himself if something happened to her. Steffy says she wont be apart from him. She suggests he get a body guard. Rick laughs it off. Hes more worried about his vintage car. He says it was expensive and hes looking for his PDA. He goes behind his desk and opens his drawer. He pauses and has a strange look on his face. Steffy asks whats wrong.
Ridge rips into Brooke and wants to know why she wouldnt have told him about the kids sleeping together. Brooke says it only happened one time. Ridge is angry and asks how many times it had to happen. Brooke says theyre adults, but shes not advocating for them. Shes more upset about whats going on with her son right now. She tells Ridge he has to believe Rick is not responsible for the fire or explosion. She needs him to believe that. Ridge says if she does thats all he needs. Hes lost a child and no parent should have to go through that. Brooke has tears in her eyes. Ridge says hell be there for her and theyll find out whats going on together. Brooke hugs him and says hes her rock. Brooke wonders who could be trying to kill her son. Ridge strokes Brookes head as he holds her close. His face has an odd expression.
There are flashes of Owen calmly sipping his drink and Pam with Ricks car keys. They show Thorne, who looks angry. Marcus and Donna are shown with worried faces.
From his office, Rick calls Lt. Baker and says this is not going to end. He has something for them to see. He holds a piece of paper with cut out letters. It reads, The end is near.
