Rick tells Ridge that he is pathetic. He cant say anything against him so he talks negatively about Maya. Ridge is not saying anything bad about Maya. Ridge tries to tell him that he is being misled. Rick knows that he is and Ridge is the one doing it. Ridge really is trying to help him right now. As much as Ridge thinks that the way Rick treats people he deserves to be burnt he doesnt deserve to be like this. Ridge knows how much Rick values Mayas loyalty. She is the only one who he can trust. She is not who he thinks she is though.
Maya knows that her relationship with Rick has been a problem for Ridge. She knows that it hasnt improved the situation and she feels badly about that.

Family relationships can have challenges. She knows that first hand now that her sister is in town.
Carter is in Ridges office and he thinks about what he just told Ridge about Maya being transgender and how it could affect the company. Nicole walks in and tells him to loosen his tie or maybe it is the suit that is making him look so serious. Carter doesnt think that it is the suit. Nicole wants to know what is going on.
In Liams office Wyatt is standing by the door. Katie and Liam are also in the room. Bill walks in and is on the phone. He tells someone that he wanted copies of the pictures that were taken. Bill hangs up and tells them to bring him back up to speed. Liam says that they know that Maya has a secret. Katie points out that they still have no idea if it actually involves Forrester. Wyatt knows though that whatever the secret is it could cause some serious damage to Forrester and her relationship with Rick which means that she does not want anyone to know. Liam knows that if it doesnt involve the company then it is useless but if it does help them then they could possibly use it to force Rick out as CEO. Bill asks how they are going to figure out what she is hiding. Liam shrugs. Liam points out that Wyatt is their man on the inside. Katie asks if he is still seeing Nicole. Wyatt is but he has been a little preoccupied trying to work with them and keep his job at Forrester. Wyatt hasnt had the time for her. Bill demands that he make the time. Wyatt says ok but Rick has not been happy with Mayas jewelry collection so he has been busy with that too. Liam wants Wyatt to get Nicole to help him find out what Maya is like as a person. Katie thinks that is a bad idea. Bill screams at him to do that now.
Nicole wants to know what is up. Carter explains that Ridge told him that he was going to quit. Nicole asks what he was going to quit. Carter tells her his job. Nicole wonders why. Carter says it is because of Rick and her sister. Nicole asks if he tried to convince him to stay. Carter reluctantly says that he did.
Rick thinks that they should try to get together sometime to compare notes. Ridge has already tried to play this game before. It didnt fly then and it doesnt fly now. Rick is not putting up with this. He will not let anyone trash Maya. Maya walks in. She wonders if everything is alright. She asks if they were talking about her. Rick assures her that it was just Ridges usual nonsense. He was just trying to tell him that she isnt the woman he thinks she is. Maya and Ridge look at each other. Maya looks scared and Ridge looks intrigued.
Wyatt doesnt need to be forced to call Nicole. Katie would hope not. Wyatt actually likes Nicole. Katie is glad. Liam points out that Nicole probably thinks that he isnt interested. Wyatt doubts that. Liam reminds him that he hasnt called her in a while and after the last date where they went on the jet she is probably waiting by the phone. Wyatt wonders if they would like him to put her on speaker too. Katie says no but Bill at the same time says yes. Wyatt gets on the phone. Nicole tells him that it is about time. Wyatt knows and he has been meaning to get a hold of her. Nicole asks if he called to apologize or ask her out. Wyatt says to ask her out. Nicole feels that is the right answer.
Eric closes the door. He tells Brooke that it seems that there is some tension between Maya and her sister. Brooke knows that they are getting to know each other again. Eric asks if Brooke agrees with what Maya said about Rick and Ridge. Brooke says that Rick sees confidence where Ridge sees arrogance. Eric feels that Rick is just trying to make success at Forrester and he is doing a damn good job of it too. Brooke just doesnt want to see him get hurt again by jumping into another marriage. Eric wonders if maybe Maya has been a little fast too but she has been standing right by his side. If Rick proposes maybe Maya will be the one to get peace between Rick and Ridge.
Rick tells Maya that is when she walked in. Rick turns around and tells Ridge that Amber wasnt the woman that he thought she was, Caroline wasnt the woman that he thought she was. Maya though has always been honest with him. Ridge doesnt think that she is being honest. Rick feels that he is just saying this because he is with Caroline. It is unlike when he used to be with Brooke until he left her. Ridge doesnt think that they are talking about Brooke right now. Rick doesnt feel that they are talking about Maya either. He doesnt have to wonder about whose side she is on. He has been able to make Forrester an even bigger success. She is the best thing that he could ask for. Ridge guesses that they loyalty will pay off very well for her but not so much for him. Maya wonders if this is about her being in jail because Rick knows about that. Rick feels that the things that Maya has been through in her life make her unique. Ridge guesses that he is right. He just warns him that not everyone in their lives is exactly who they think that they are. Rick thinks that Maya is and that is all he has to say about that. He tells him to get out of his office. Ridge leaves. Maya thanks him.
Ridge stands outside in the hallway.
Liam and Katie go over some work while Wyatt stands behind them and looks at a picture of Nicole. He starts to think about when she was dancing in his living room and they kissed for the first time. When they kissed on the plane as well and he told her that starting tonight they need to be upfront and honest. Wyatt smiles. Liam asks if they are all set up. Wyatt confirms that they are. Katie tells Wyatt that he should take her to that new sushi place she hears that it is really good. Bill explains to Katie that he is a grown man and can make his own plans. Wyatt feels that he has handled himself well so far. Bill still thinks that he could go a little faster and Katie thinks that he doesnt have to rush things. Bill wants him to make her feel special. Liam suggests buying her flowers. Bill reminds all of them that he is trying to impress her and get her to open up about a family secret. Wyatt sarcastically says that, that doesnt sound creepy at all. Bill tells him that he needs to take her to the most expensive restaurant find the most expensive item tell her that it is great and she should try it. Wyatt thanks all of them. He really has enjoyed their enthusiasm and their advice but he can take it from here.

Carter assumes that it is a surprise. He asks if she was given a hint. Nicole says no. Carter asks if she has a passport. Nicole is confused for a second then she tells him no. Carter knows that it will be hard for him to top himself. Nicole doesnt want him to but she isnt going to stop him from trying. Nicole wont let Maya mess this up but she could if Maya tells Rick about her past. Carter doesnt understand how that affects Wyatt. Nicole feels that it could set off a storm that could rain on all of them. Things could be fine but what if they arent. That is why no one is going to know. She asks if she he has got it.
