Rick and Steffy return to his office at Forrester. Rick is upset because Ridge doesnt like the idea of them being married at Pt. Dune. Steffy questions Rick as to the real reason he picked that particular spot. Was it really to get at Ridge? Rick looks surprised by the question.
Ridge and Brooke head to Ridges office at Forrester. Ridge thinks the whole thing was a total disaster and Rick is only doing this to push his buttons. Brooke doesnt see it. Ridge feels their spot is sacred and Rick wanting to get married there is a desecration. Brooke looks surprised by the vehemence in his voice.
Rick cant believe Steffy is questioning his motives. He was trying to get through to Ridge and Brooke that Pt. Dune is special. Its a place of second chances. He wants that for their family. However, if they cant accept them; he just wants her. Steffy looks uncertain.
Brooke tells Ridge she knows this whole relationship with their children has been hard for him. Brooke thinks Rick is just trying to emulate them. She doesnt think Rick is doing this as revenge. Ridge wonders why Rick would try to emulate a relationship hes tried to destroy. Brooke feels its his way to show acceptance of their relationship. Ridge looks skeptical. Taylor rushes in and tells Ridge she got there as soon as she could. She wants to know whats happened. Brooke knew Taylor would be worried. Ridge lets Taylor know about Ricks plans to marry Steffy on the beach at Pt. Dune. Taylor is incredulous. She automatically thinks this is another way for Rick to get to Ridge. Ridge looks at Brooke with an I told you so look. Brooke looks surprised at Taylors accusation.
At Jackie Ms, Nick, Stephanie and his mother discuss her hiring terms. They think Stephanie is crazy to ask for 50 percent of the company. Stephanie heads for the door. Nick stops her.
In Ricks office, Steffy assures him she believes his intent is to make her happy. Steffy feels they dont have to make things worse for Ridge in the process. Rick wants to know if thats what she really believes. Steffy questions if they can really trust their feelings given the way they came together. Rick thinks shes listened to her father for too long. Steffy is silent, her face shows her conflict. She tells Rick its time to be honest. She just wants to make sure his feelings for her are real and not tangled up with the hatred he has for her father. Ricks face shows several emotions as she talks. Steffy says its really confusing, but she needs to know if its always going to be this way. Rick listens with a stoic expression.
Ridge tells Brooke her son is never going to let up. Brooke feels Rick isnt out to get Ridge. Taylor tries to get Brooke to see shes not being objective. Brooke says neither is Taylor. Ridge moves to Taylors side across the room from Brooke. The two women briefly argue the point. Taylor says Ricks actions speak for themselves. She gets in
Brookes face and asks why she thinks Rick would pick this location to get married. Brooke repeats the fact she thinks Rick is showing acceptance for her and Ridges marriage. Ridge looks dumbfounded at her naiveté. She really believes what Rick has to say. Brooke insists Rick honestly wants to marry Steffy. Taylor looks at Ridge; her expression matching his. They both feel Brooke has a blind side where Rick is concerned. Ridge stresses his feelings this marriage cant take place. Ridge feels Rick just keeps attacking him and his family. This wedding is just another attempt to get to him. He tells Brooke hes sorry, but Rick is everything he doesnt want in a son-in-law. Brooke looks astounded at how harsh Ridge is being. Ridge goes on to tell her it concerns him more that she cant see where hes coming from. Ridge feels Brooke doesnt think his fears are justified. Hes tried to accept Rick, but he just cant.
Stephanie pauses in the door of Jackies office. She wants to know if they want her to stay. Nick tells her he doesnt want her to go, but hes not willing to give up 50 percent of his company. Jackie pushes to let her leave. Stephanie feels shes worth it. She knows the company is floundering and 50 percent of something is better than 100 percent of nothing. Jackie tries to convince Nick they can get another loan. They can survive without Stephanie just like Forrester. Stephanie stands and listens with a smirk on her face. She asks if they want to bet the business on it. Nick offers her a $500,000 the first year. Nick says if things work out they can look at a partnership. Jackie holds her head in frustration. Stephanie tells Nick to have his people call her people, since she knows he really doesnt have the cash. Jackie grabs Nicks arm to try to persuade him. Before she can say more, Bridget walks in. Shes as surprised to see Stephanie as Stephanie is to see her. She makes up some bumbling excuse about Jack wanting to see his father. Nick introduces Bridget as Madame X. Stephanie looks shocked. Nick tells her now shell have to come up with a proposal, since shes learned their big secret. Bridgets mouth is open in surprise at the revelation to Stephanie.
Stephanie is stunned Bridget is working for Jackie M. She jokes the business is worst off than she thought. Bridget is offended. Jackie plays up how good Bridgets designs are. Stephanie questions Bridget about her medical career. Bridget explains its her childhood dream for fashion. The medicine will always be there. Stephanie wants to know why she didnt go to Forrester. Bridget explains she didnt want to just express her fathers visions. She wanted to leave her comfort zone and do something outrageous for a change. Nick breaks in and tells Bridget how Stephanie knows exactly what she means. Stephanie looks like shes on the hot seat. He asks Bridget isnt she at all curious as to why Stephanie is there. He leans next to Stephanie and says even though some businesses are firing, they are in the hiring business. Bridgets mouth drops in shock. She cant believe Nick offered Stephanie a job. Nick reminds her how Eric fired Stephanie, plus Donnas input on the whole matter. Bridget is irritated and tells him to stop. She asks Stephanie directly, if shes going to take the offer. Jackie jumps in and says they all need to take some more time to decide. Nick heads to his desk saying hes going to call the lawyers and get this deal moving to save the company. He tells Jackie and Bridget to show Stephanie around. Jackie looks a bit sick, while Bridget and Stephanie smile at each other.
Back in Ricks office, Rick tells Steffy he and Ridge will always have issues. Rick tells her what Eric said to him about never being a Ridge Forrester. He admits this has been eating away at him. Steffy looks taken aback at the admission. Rick feels like hes had to deal with this all his life. Its made him do things he regrets. He swears to her their relationship is not one of those things. Steffy believes him. She puts her arms around his neck and hugs him. Rick wants to know if she believes him enough to pick out china patterns. They joke about shopping, but Steffy tells him they can shop on line. They continue to kiss as they talk about all the things they can get. The kisses get more passionate and Steffy unbuttons Ricks shirt.
In his office, Brooke approaches Ridge. She tells him Rick is not trying to manipulate him. Rick genuinely cares for Steffy. Taylor asks if his feelings for Steffy outweigh his need to torment Ridge. Brooke spins around in an irritated fashion and tells Taylor thats not what this is about. Ridge backs Taylor up and agrees. Rick is taunting him. Taylor says Rick is so disturbed he probably doesnt even realize what hes doing. He needs treatment. Brooke quickly tells her Thomas needs treatment. She knows Thomas is getting it, but Rick needs support. Taylor says Rick is unstable. Steffy needs to be protected. Brooke turns to Ridge for back up. She says this union could be a healing factor for both families. She thinks Steffys feelings for Rick are beautiful. Ridge rubs his head in frustration. Taylor gets between them and says thats the problem. Steffys feelings for Rick are real. They have to get her away before shes hurt, but itll be very difficult. Brooke and Ridge look at each other warily.
Stephanie comes back to Jackies office after the tour. Shes still not sure about Bridgets work, even though she shows a lot of promise. Jackie is very enthusiastic about Bridgets potential. Jackie mentions Owen and his take on things. Stephanie is puzzled and wants to know what Owen knows about her and the business. Jackie lets her know shes made Owen the point man for the Fabrize account. Stephanie is dumbfounded. She sarcastically wants to know who made this smart decision. Bridget holds back a smile as Nick looks taken aback at the question. He asks if Stephanie has a suggestion. Stephanie says they have to have a corporate strategy. Who are they? Theyre not Forrester. Nick gets what Stephanie is saying. He says theyre young and theres so much untapped fresh talent in Los Angeles like Bridget. People want an opportunity to show case new fashion. Nick gets excited and says thats what they can make happen at Jackie M. Stephanie smiles in agreement.
Rick and Steffy continue to kiss in his office. His shirt is completely off. He tells Steffy they can take it back to their place. She smiles at the mention of their place. Rick says theres a big bed at home. Steffy starts talking about bedding. Rick cant believe shes talking about household items, instead of what he obviously has on his mind. He teases her about how shed rather be shopping. She drags him over to the computer and tells him how much fun this will be planning their future. She wants to get plenty of place settings, because she hopes one day to have all their family together. Rick hugs her, since he sees how much this means to her.
Taylor tells Brooke this marriage cant happen. Brooke insists Rick loves Steffy. He proposed and she accepted. Taylor is annoyed and tells Brooke, Rick is using Steffy. Taylor thinks what Rick is doing is twisted and sick. Brooke throws in what Thomas did was sick. He tried to burn Ricks home and blew up his car. Taylor tells Brooke shes in denial. Brooke is frustrated and turns to Ridge to back her up. Ridge stands by with his arms crossed. He crosses the room and sits on his desk next to Taylor. He agrees with Taylor. He tells Brooke she needs to listen, since Taylor knows what shes talking about. Brooke looks at him in disbelief. She says Taylor isnt speaking as a psychiatrist. Shes speaking out of loss and grief and trying to make someone pay for Phoebes death. She thinks Taylor is being manipulative and playing on his fears. Ridge feels his daughter is about to make the biggest mistake of her life. He and Taylor have done all they can to stop this madness. Ricks hold is too great. He earnestly tells Brooke she has to be the one to put a stop to this marriage. Brooke looks distressed by this request. She has tears in her eyes. Taylor is silent at Ridges side.
