Maya is crying. She tells Rick that the ring is beautiful. Rick says that it is just like the woman that he hopes will be wearing it. Rick wants her to say yes. He wants her to be his wife. Brookes voice gets into Mayas head again and once again is telling her that she cannot accept the proposal.
In Ricks office Eric asks if Rick still doesnt know. Brooke explains that he doesnt. Eric feels that this is a big situation. He wants to propose to this girl. Brooke told Maya that she has to tell him tonight. At least she hopes that she does. Eric asks if Rick took her to Big Bear specifically to propose. Brooke doesnt want Eric to worry. It wont get that far. She has to tell him about her past before he proposes.
Ridge is walking in circles in his office. Wyatt walks in and asks if he wanted to see him. Ridge tells him that he wants to get some straight answers about this Maya business. Wyatt explains that he knows just as much about this situation as he does. Ridge feels that there is a significant difference. When Ridge asked him earlier if he told anyone Wyatt did not answer. Ridge wants a straight answer now. He wants to know if Bill knows or doesnt know about Mayas past. Ridge thinks that Bill knows.
Katie reminds Bill that both the President and Vice-President of Spencer Publications agree that this is a bad move for the company Bill thinks that both Katie and Liam will come to their senses. Katie tells him that this is wrong. Bill reports the news. Katie does not think that it is news. He is just trying to make a scandal. Bill feels that if the head model at Forrester was not always female then that is news. Katie guesses that at one point in Mayas life her outside didnt match her inside so she fixed that. Bill just thinks that Katie is making her point for him. It is news. Katie knows about all the people who are prosecuted every day in this country and she will not allow him to lead the charge.
Eric explains that Nicole, Carter, Ridge, and the two of them are the only ones who know about this. They must keep it contained. Rick should have been the one to decide when this came out. He doesnt want word of this leaking out of the building. Brooke thinks that it may be too late for that. Eric asks why. Brooke says that Nicole has told Wyatt. Eric cant believe that she would tell Bill Spencers son.
Wyatt knows that he is Bill Spencers son. Ridge cannot believe that he would tell someone who owns magazines, newspapers, tabloids, and websites. He asks what Wyatt was thinking. If Bill has control of Mayas story then he will exploit it.
Bill is not persecuting or exploiting Maya. He is doing what they always do which is informing the public. Katie does not think it is anything but gossip. Bill reminds her that it is the truth which is all the report. Katie doesnt think he has any idea if this is the truth. Bill has no idea if the source was telling the truth who told Wyatt. In Bills mind Nicole is a reliable enough source for him. Bill is going to protect his investment. Rick is destroying their company. He has to go and this is the ticket. Katie asks if in the twenty first century anyone really will care that Forrester has a transgender model. Katie thinks that he is chasing a delusion. Bill is not chasing anything. This is about the fact that Maya hid this from Rick. It has caused drama and that is the story that Spencer Publications is going to run with.
Rick knows that he is feeling it too. This connection between the two of them. Maya is a very special woman unlike any other woman he has ever known. Maya hopes that he always feels that way. Rick doesnt think that she is going to have to worry about that. Maya tells him that there is something he does not know about her. Rick doesnt think that it will make a difference to him. Maya still has to tell him.
Eric guesses that everyone seems to know about this but Rick. He asks if Brooke believes Nicole. Brooke says that she believes it but she is not so sure. Eric knows that even if Wyatt tells his father Bill owns a piece of this business he cannot imagine Bill would want to destabilize them. Brooke doesnt want them to count on anything. Eric knows she is right. This is Bill Spencer they are talking about. If he finds out about this he will make sure that the whole world knows. Brooke hopes then that Wyatt didnt tell him.
Ridge wants to know why Wyatt would tell his father. Wyatt wonders if Ridge really has to ask that. Ridge does. Wyatt says because of Rick. He asks if he really needs to say more. Ridge will take care of his brother. Wyatt doesnt think that he has done much already. Rick is insulated. Wyatt feels that this is the best way to get Rick out and Ridge in. Ridge still does not think that they should want or need Bills involvement. Wyatt knows that Katie and Liam are talking to Bill. Ridge tells Wyatt that they are going to go see Bill. Wyatt does not think that is such a good idea. Ridge starts pounding his fist into his other hand. Wyatt wants Katie to handle it. Ridge does not want the future of this company in Katies hands or anyone elses. It is time that Wyatt went and saw his daddy.
Bill wants Rick to be taught a lesson. Katie reminds him that this is humiliation that Bill is talking about. Bill wonders if Katie doesnt think that Rick needs to be humbled. He needs a little wakeup call. Rick is a spoiled little bully. Bill wants Katie to believe him. This is the ticket. Bill tells her to think of this as tough love.
Maya loves him and she knows that he loves her. Rick asks if that isnt all that matters. Maya knows that in most cases yes but this is a little different. Rick wouldnt want it to be ordinary. Maya doesnt think he will have to worry about that. Rick cannot wait to hear whatever it is she has to tell him. Rick does not think that there is anything that she could tell him that would make him love her any less. Maya would love to make this easier but it isnt. She explains that what she has to say could change everything. It could make him see her differently. She doesnt think that it should but it could. Rick knows that Maya is the woman that he knows and loves. Maya has shared a lot with him. Things that she has not shared with anyone. She has not told him everything. She wanted to but she fell so deeply for him and she thought that she needed to protect herself. Then Maya realized that maybe she didnt and maybe their love really can overcome everything. Maya is balling her eyes out. Rick wipes her tears. Maya has to tell him and he has to hear it because it is who she is. She really wants to give him all of her. Rick kisses her. Maya kisses back. They look into each others eyes.
Katie is not through with this. Bill cant take this anymore. He tells her that they are going to have to agree to disagree. Katie does not want him writing anything. Bill will not pass up this opportunity. Katie cannot believe that he would want to ruin Ricks career and possibly his life. Bill does not want him to be CEO. Ridge and Wyatt walk in. Ridge agrees but this is not how they are going to get rid of him. Bill wants to know why he is here. Wyatt asks if Bill is going to run the story. Bill is doing this for Wyatt, Ridge, Caroline, Ivy, and everyone else. Bill thinks that Ridge can thank him when he leaves. Ridge will not let this go down like this. Bill asks if Ridge is getting soft on Rick. Ridge isnt getting soft. He is thinking of the company. Bill owns a piece of the company as well. Ridge knows that his investment is safe. Bill doesnt not feel like he is confident about that. Ridge knows this is not about his measly twelve and a half percent. This is a family matter. Bill knows that and his family is under attack. Wyatt does not need Bill defending him. Bill knows for sure that Caroline and Ivy do though. Rick is not going to abuse the women in his family. Ridge will take care of Caroline and Ivy. Bill can stay out of it. Bill doesnt think that is going to happen. Katie tells him that he will. If Bill claims that he is going to protect women then Maya is a women just as much as the rest of them. Katie will not let him make a public spectacle out of her.
Brooke cannot imagine what this is going to do to their son. Eric points out that he is not a child. He will be shocked hut there is nothing that they can do about that. Brooke just knows that after Caroline he deserved to have a solid relationship. After all these years he thought he had found it. Eric wants them to put their faith in Maya. He knows that Rick has. Brooke reminds Eric of where that got Rick. Eric has to believe that she will do the right thing and tell him the truth. Brooke hopes that she does it before he proposes. Eric also hopes it is before anyone tells anyone else. That would be devastating.
Rick keeps kissing Maya. Maya tells him that she is not finished. Rick is not either. Maya tells him that this is serious. Maya begs him to let her finish. Rick is trying to tell her that she does not have to apologies for anything. Maya needs him to hear this. Rick needs to hear that she loves him. Maya does. The two kiss and Rick picks her up and carries her to the couch.
Katie asks if Bill is clear. Mayas gender is not a story online or papers. Not anywhere. Bill says that she has made herself absolutely clear. Katie wants him to promise her. Ridge agrees that a promise would be nice. Bill turns around in his seat and asks if Ridge would like a promise. Bill promises that Ridge is the cause of this entire mess. Ridge seduced his niece, broke up her marriage, Rick is with Maya, and Rick has been torching Caroline. Bill cannot stay out of it because Ridge put him in the middle of it. Bill asks if Ridge wants Rick to talk his way out of this. Bill knows that if they expose this then Rick cannot possibly function as CEO. That should be the goal. Ridge doesnt want it like this. Bill asks how then. Ridge wants Eric to change his mind. Bill knows that Eric is not going to do anything. Eric will side with the kid who is his blood. Bill is not going to do this for him. Katie says that they are done here. She demands that Bill pull the story. Bill gets on the phone and tells someone to get in here. Wyatt thinks that it is the right thing to do. Justin walks in and asks what he wants. Bill tells him to pull the Maya story. Justin wonders if he is sure. Katie says that he is sure.
Eric feels that Rick has to find out about Maya from Maya and not anyone else. Brooke hopes that is happening right now. Brooke knows that this is going to come down heavy on Rick. She knows that he does not deal well with surprises. Eric doesnt think that they can do anything about it. All they can do is be there for him when Maya tells him the truth.
Justin walks back into Bills office after everyone has left. Bill tells him to get in here and close the door. Bill explains that things are not always as they appear. Bill is the one who calls the shots around here. They are running with the story. Bill wants the whole world to know all about Maya.
Rick and Maya are now in bed naked. Maya is smiling. Rick loves that she is. He thinks that it is time they put their past behind them. Rick thinks that the future is everything. That is all Maya wants. Rick doesnt think that Mayas life is in her past but here and now. Rick brings up the question he asked her earlier. Rick wonders if she forgot. Maya cant until she tells him something. Rick wants to try to guess. She will not marry him until he agrees to bring her champagne for breakfast every day. Maya begs him to let her finish. Maya wants to be his wife more than anything. Rick thinks that all she has to do is say yes. Maya first has to share something with him. Rick doesnt need to know every little detail about her life. He knows that she is the only woman he wants to spend his life with. Maya wants that too. He needs to know something though and it is significant. Rick asks if it is a secret. Maya does not think it is a secret. It is who she is. Rick knows that she is the woman he loves and he wouldnt change a single thing about her. Maya asks if he really wouldnt. Rick tells her of course not. Rick tells her if she must then she can go on and tell him. Maya says that this is the story of the woman he fell in love with, of how she became the woman she is today. How she became Maya. Rick looks a little intrigued.
