Stephanie hears Eric on the phone and asks him what that was about. Eric says they don’t know when Ridge will be arriving so he called the concierge at his flat to find out. She asks him what she said and Eric says she doesn’t know because she hasn’t seen him for days but assures her that he will be here. He says there is nothing that could stop him from coming.
After hearing from the pilot Liam tells Steffy they will be starting their final descent into L.A. shortly. Steffy leaves to get the baby a bottle of milk. Bill tells her to make sure it’s not too hot and she says she knows. Bill notices something is on Brooke’s mind and asks her what it is. She tells him she doesn’t know how she is going to react when she sees Ridge at Stephanie’s party. Bill says Ridge has a lot of explaining to do if she asks him. Brooke says Ridge will be devastated because he’s very close to his mom. Bill says that’s the thing a boy can grow up without a father but not his mother. Liam tells his dad that he happens to know from experience when the mom isn’t around having a father who won’t give up is a very good thing. Bill smiles at his son.
Steffy comes back with the bottle and tells them that the co-pilot said it is going to be sunny and gorgeous in L.A. The weather is bleak where Katie is as he calls Taylor. Taylor asks her where she is calling from but Katie ignores the question and asks if she has heard anything from Bill or Brooke. Taylor says she may have some news and asks for her number so she can call her back. Katie says she may not be here though and Taylor asks how she will be able to reach her then. Katie says if she’s with a patient she can call back but Taylor says she gets that she has her reasons for wanting to keep in touch with her but says she’s only going to do that if she tells her how to contact her.
Katie says she’s not telling her where she is. Taylor says well that is up to her. Katie asks what the news is and Taylor tells her that Bill and Brooke get back from Aspen today. Katie asks her who told her that and Taylor says her daughter but she already knew that because today is Stephanie’s celebration of her life party. Katie says yes Brooke would not want to miss that. Taylor says neither would Ridge and says they are going to see each other and get back together. Katie says she’s not so sure but Taylor asks if they do then what. Katie hangs up on her and doesn’t answer.
Bill tells Brooke they have a car for her so she won’t be late for the party. Brooke says she wants to get Will settled in first. Bill says that Ridge may already be there but Brooke says she’s not who he’s coming to see. Bill looks upset for Brooke. Stephanie asks Eric if he’s not going to change. Eric jokingly says he’s not going to change because she’s been trying to get him to do that since the first day they got married. She laughs and says he’s so crazy because she was talking about his clothes. Soon Felicia and Kristen arrive and Stephanie goes over and hugs her daughters. Felicia and Kristen say they don’t know what to say and Stephanie says well no one really knows what to say to someone who is dying except I love you. Felicia and Kristen hug her again as Eric looks upset in the background at Stephanie saying she is dying again.
Felicia asks if Ridge is coming and Eric says of course. Kristen says they don’t need him to get stated though and says let’s get this party underway. They asks her what they can do to help and Stephanie tells them to out their bags down. She says Eric is always telling her how strong he is so he can carry them. She says she doesn’t want any of them to be anymore than six inches away from her and they ask her why else she thinks they came and hug her. Stephanie tells them that after the party Eric and her are going to go away to someplace no one can get to them. They ask her if this is the last time they are ever going to see her and if that is but she means but she doesn’t answer as Pam arrives. Eric ushers Stephanie and his daughters aside as he gets things ready.
Taylor welcomes back her daughter. Steffy tells her mother she enjoyed Aspen and says she’s shocked to learn she’s not that bad with babies. Liam says it must have been really hard for his dad to arrive and find Katie’s phone but no Katie. Steffy says she can’t believe she’s going to say this but Brooke was great. She says she was great with Bill and the baby and there was no attitude towards her and Liam. Liam and Steffy tell her about the hot air balloon ride someone set up for Bill and Brooke. They say they think it was Justin who did it to cheer Bill up but Taylor knows it was Katie trying to push her sister and Bill together.
Donna and Brooke discuss their sister when Bill takes the baby aside. Brooke asks Donna is she has heard from Katie at all and she says no. Brooke asks what is going on with their sister. Donna says what she doesn’t understand is how she could leave her like this. She says she gets her leaving Bill but Brooke cuts in saying that under Bill’s rough exterior he has a heart of gold. Donna looks shocked as she watches Brooke smiling to herself.
Thorne arrives and hugs his sisters. Stephanie sees how he’s dressed in a polo shirt and asks him if he’s been playing golf before saying is he going to change here. Felicia and Kristen asks what she means as Eric told them to dress casually. Two ladies arrive at the door and Eric rushes to meet them. Stephanie asks what is going on here but Pam pulls her inside and tells her to rest. Stephanie wonders over what Eric and Pam have planned for her that they are hiding.
Liam says they should get ready for Stephanie’s party. Taylor says she has to get ready for that herself. Liam says he’s going to use the ATM in the lobby before he goes and Steffy tells him she’ll be right behind him. When Liam leaves Steffy says it’s just so strange that she’s going to be losing her grandmother when it’s the happiest time of her life. Taylor tells her to listen to her and tells her to be grateful for every happy moment she has in her life. She says you can never have too much of that. Steffy nods and smiles. Taylor says if she could teach that to half the people that show up to her office then she’d be out of a job making Steffy laugh. She tells Steffy that she’ll see her at Stephanie’s and Steffy leaves to get ready. Taylor picks up a piece of paper looks at Katie’s number determinedly.
Donna tells Brooke she looks gorgeous and that when Ridge sees her he will sweep her up and everything is going to be normal again but Brooke says she doesn’t know. Bill says that her husband needs his ass kicked. Donna turns and asks him to tell them how he really feels. Bill says he thinks people who leave their spouses should go to jail. He goes to Brooke and says he knows tonight is important for her and asks how he can help. Brooke looks pleased.
Taylor phones Katie and says they didn’t finish their conversation. Katie snaps that maybe she didn’t but she did. Taylor sys she is not going to be used to keep tabs on Bill and Brooke. Katie asks if they went on the balloon ride but Taylor tells her this romance she’s trying to engineer is wrong. She tells Katie to go home because she is the only one Bill loves and the only mother to Will but Katie hangs up on her. Bill tells Brooke he’s going with her because he knows this is a difficult situation for her to walk into alone. Brooke says he is right about that and accepts him coming with her. She says though, she hopes Ridge will just look at her and say “Logan” and everything will go back to normal. She says she hopes then it’ll be the way it’s always been.
Eric informs Stephanie that he’s cancelled her caterers and string quartet. She asks him why he would do such a thing when she’s planned this party the way she wanted it along with every other party in this house. Eric says well it’s his turn to throw the party and Stephanie says she’s dying yet it’s his turn? Eric asks her what she’s going to do. He says she’s going to divorce him or leave him and says hah. Stephanie says well maybe there still is enough time for a quickie divorce. Eric says there is not and tells her that she can have her dying scenario all she wants but he’s not going to give it away on that. He says he’s going to try to make this as easy as he can on her but she has to let him love her the way he wants to love her until she goes. He says that’s the deal take it or leave it. Stephanie says okay and he says thank you.
He says she can have her cracked crabs later. Stephanie says but this is their last party. Eric says maybe even their last fight but Stephanie says she wouldn’t count on that. Eric and Stephanie hug as Pam, Thorne, Felicia and Kristen go teary. Stephanie holds Eric close and looks content.
