Maya smiles as she hugs Rick. She feels so loved. Maya never thought that she would. Rick assures her that nothing has to change. This is no bodies business but theirs. Ricks phone is buzzing like crazy and the two turn to look at it. Rick thinks that someone must want him. Maya reluctantly says that Brooke knew that she was going to talk tonight. Rick knows that Brooke knew that he was proposing tonight. Maya adds that she also knew why she was reluctant and why she couldnt have children. Rick asks if she told Brooke before she told him. Maya says no. It started with Nicole but that was because she was threatening or well putting a little pressure on her. Rick assumes that Nicole knows then. Maya then adds that is how Carter found out. Rick seems a little less happy with that. Rick guesses that he can talk to him. He thinks that Carter is a reasonable guy. Maya is afraid that it is too late. Carter must have told Ridge because Ridge told his parents. Rick is not happy.
Ridge walks into Ricks office. He tells Brooke and Eric that he just had a very interesting conversation with one of Mayas friends. Brooke and Eric are both looking at Ricks computer. Ridge asks them what is wrong. Eric turns the computer screen around. Ridge reads and it says Say hello to Maya Avant with Maya crossed out and Myron wrote on top. Ridge bets that it was Bill who did this.
Bill smiles as he stares at his computer screen. Someone walks in and without looking he assumes it is Justin. He tells him that he needs to see how many views the article has. Katie tells Bill that Justin isnt here. He turned and ran as soon as he saw her. Bill looks up. Katie wants to know how he could do this. She sounds furious.
Ridge thinks this is a nightmare. Brooke thought that was what he wanted. Ridge wanted Bill to keep it to himself. Eric thought that Ridge said Bill would. Ridge tells him that is what Bill said. The phone rings. Ridge picks it up and shuts it. He doesnt want anyone answering because it could be press. Brooke tells Ridge and Eric that Rick cannot know that Ridge knew before he did. They all need to agree on that.
Rick asks how she could let this happen. Maya didnt let this happen. No one gave her a choice. Rick explains to her that Ridge is trying to get behind his back. Maya guesses this makes her the office joke. Rick cant believe that the last conversation he had with him Ridge knew. Maya thinks that they both know that Ridge is never going to say anything nice about her. Rick doesnt think that is the point. His family has been tip toeing around him talking about his sex life behind his back. He would like to know what they think Maya says that Brooke was insisting that she tell. Rick cannot believe that she wasnt planning on saying anything until Brooke insisted. Maya tells him no. That is not how it happened. She always intended to tell him. Rick asks if she sees what is happening. This is his personal life. He does not want any back channel whispers. Rick wont let them take this any further and that is exactly what he is going to tell them. He picks up his phone. Rick looks at the article and looks shocked. Maya asks what is wrong. Rick continues to look shocked.
Eric feels that this is cruel and sick what Spencer has done. Eric even thinks that it is evil. Brooke is going to go to Bill and tell him to take it down. Ridge explains to her that it is too late as it is already out there. Nick walks in. Ridge introduces him as Mayas friend that he was telling them about. Nick got to his car and turned on the radio. He thought that Ridge was going to keep this in the family. Nicole walks in and shuts the door behind her. She asks them all if they have seen what they are doing. Eric is afraid that they have. Nicole looks at Ridge. She wants to know if he did this to her sister. Brooke informs her that only one person in this room talked to the press. Nicole looks baffled.
Bill notes that Katie got here a little sooner than he expected. Katie guesses that they are right back where they started. Where he plays her and then does whatever he wants to do. Katie thinks that they are a family and family does not keep secrets from each other. Bill feels that when you are the patriarch of said family it is up to you to make the tough choices. Bill is always going to make the choice that will benefit his business and his family. Katie reminds him that Rick is her family. She would like to know how he could possibly think this is the right choice. Bill gets a phone call. Katie tells him to answer it. She wonders though if Bill does not like having his victims talk back to him. Bill feels that Rick made his bed and he has his girlfriend to keep him warm in it. Katie is about to answer the phone but Bill stops her.
Rick is on his phone. Maya asks what happened. Rick tells Bill to answer his phone. Maya gets out her phone to see if something has happened. Rick tells her not to open her phone. Maya looks and is speechless. She puts her hand over her mouth and throws her phone on the ground. Bill finally picks up the phone. He asks how Rick is doing this evening. Rick wants to know why he is doing this. Bill feels that is similar to what he asked when Rick fired shots at his niece. Rick tells him to stop posting articles about Mayas medical history or he will destroy him. Bill doesnt think that because Rick was denied the truth that the public should as well. Rick informs him that the only life he is ruining is his. Bill is just running his business the way that he sees fit. The same way that Rick runs his. Bill hangs up. Maya looks worried. Maya suggests that it is not as bad as it seems. Maya tries to look at his phone. Rick tells her that it is bad and not to look anymore. All Rick is saying is that Bill better take those stories down or Rick will have Carter hit him with a lawsuit in the morning. Maya asks if a lawsuit could make things worse. Rick bets that this was Ridges doing. Rick does not think that this has to be an issue. People on the East Coast and in Europe are sleeping. They can all wake up tomorrow like it never even happened. Rick wishes that she would have told him first. He doesnt want her to worry though because he will take care of it. Rick is going to take care of them. Maya looks worried.
Nicole says that Wyatt said he wouldnt say anything. Ridge thinks that sounds like Wyatt. Nicole turns and looks at Nick. She wants to know who he is. Ridge introduces them. Ridge explains to Nick that Nicole is dating Bill Spencers son. Nick would like to know why that guy would need to know anything about Maya. Nicole explains that they were getting to know each other. Nick asks why she would not tell him her story. Maya didnt get a voice or a vote in any of that. Nicole wouldnt have used it against her. Nick asks if she knows how many transgender women have been murdered already this year. Brooke did here about that in the news. It just seemed so Nick assumes so not her problem. He knows. Eric gets a phone call from Rick. He answers it. Rick is sorry to call him so late. He explains that something happened. Eric knows they all know. Rick knows that Ridge can be vindictive and cruel. Eric informs him that it wasnt Ridge. They know how it happened. They wont get into that now though. He asks how Maya is. Rick explains that she told him everything and he loves her. Eric knows that. Rick called Spencer to take down the stories but so far they have only multiplied. Eric knows that is what he does. Maya walks back into the room. Rick is going to do everything that he can to make sure that Forresters reputation stays intact. Erics main concern is him. Rick can handle the scandal and humiliation. Rick knows that he has been through it before in the past. He promises though that he will get Forrester through this unharmed somehow. Rick swears it. Maya looks scared. Eric will talk to Rick soon and hangs up the phone. Brooke asks what he said. Nicole wants to know about Maya. Rick didnt say much. Nicole wants to know what he means. This is happening to her sister not to him. They all look at her angry. Nicole knows that they all think she did this to hurt her. Nicole admits that she did think that before. She thought that Maya left her behind and didnt care what happened to her. Nicole only ever meant to scare her. She didnt mean for this to happen. Nick has an idea that might help.
Maya suggests that they put away all the computers for the night. Rick has to look at this. Maya thinks that they both know what they are saying. Rick is going to call Carter then he decides against it. He wants to know who else they know who can provide a court order against Spencer. Maya thinks that all a court order is going to do is show people who have been outed by the press. Bill is never going to back down. Rick thinks that there has to be something they can do. Maya suggests that they start over. They can get away for a little while. Rick cannot do that now. Not when he is getting everything he always wanted. Maya asks if that includes her. Rick feels that they have to take things one step at a time. Maya never wanted this kind of attention and she never wanted this brought on Rick or Forrester. She didnt want to walk around having to be ashamed of being herself and human. Rick screams that he needs some time to think. Maya thought that he was on her side. Rick looks at an article called The uncanny tranny. Rick thinks that this is such an embarrassment. Maya gets angry and walks out the door with her bag. Rick calls after her.
Bill wants to know why Katie doesnt hold everyone to the same standard. Bill asks if she would be so forgiving if Rick had fired shots at her instead of Caroline. Bill bets that she would have seen things a little differently. Katie is so tired of Bill using Caroline to justify his actions. That girl can take care of herself. She wants to know if Bill really thinks that she will be ok with what he has done on her behalf. Bill does. Katie feels that he drives her crazy. Katie does hold him to a high standard because she loves him. Katie expects him to do the right thing. Sometimes that means walking away from something. Katie doesnt care who gets the scoop first and maybe they make a little less money because it is the right thing to do. Holding Maya up for public ridicule will never be right.
Maya gets into her car. Rick asks what she is doing. Maya is leaving he has a lot to do. Rick doesnt want her to go now. Rick thinks that this is hard for him. Maya reminds him that it is hard for her too. Rick just wants a chance to figure this out. Maya drives off. Rick runs back into the cabin. He grabs his keys and leaves.
Maya is on the road and opens the window. She is on a dirt road. Rick is behind her honking his horn. Maya speeds up. Rick in his car begs her not to leave him now.
Bill thinks that his integrity is rock solid. Bill points out that Katie never took interest in what they did before. Bill wants to know why now. He knows why. It is somewhat personal for her. Katie agrees. It is personal. Bill calls her a hypocrite. Bill gets another phone call and thinks it is such a surprise. Bill answers. He would like to know how he can help Eric. Eric tells him that he has helped them out enough tonight. Eric is calling with his wellbeing in mind. Bill would love to hear what. Nick hands Eric a piece of paper. Eric asks if Bill has heard of GLADD. Bill thinks that it is just full of happy people. Bill had heard of it. Eric guesses that he knows then that they are players in the media these days. They will not be happy at all with the venom he is spewing at Maya tonight. Bill would like the public to decide if this is venom or the truth. Eric is fully aware that people campaign against companies advertising with certain people. Eric knows that his sister Karen is one of their biggest donors. Bill hangs up the phone.
Rick is still honking his horn. Maya starts to cry.
Brooke thanks Nick. Nick explains that Bill might get worried but he might not. Ridge wonders about GLADD. Nick thinks that they will care but wont do anything without talking to Maya. He looks at Nicole and says that she might have already had enough. Nick wonders if they know the saddest part of all of this. Brooke guesses that it was so preventable. Nick tells them that Maya really loves their son. He leaves. Brooke looks sad. Nicole knows that she will never forgive her. Nicole lost her sister all over again.
Maya is frantically driving. Rick tries to get her attention. He has his phone call Maya. Maya gets the phone call but she doesnt accept it. Rick calls her again. Maya answers and thinks that they have said enough tonight. Rick wants her to pull over at the next turn up. Maya asks why. She has made a mockery of his family. Rick never meant it that way. Maya knows that he is better off without her. Rick asks if he asked her to marry him tonight. Maya feels that a lot has changed since then. Maya assumes he does not want a wife he is embarrassed of. Rick demands that she pull over. They need to do this face to face. Maya just wants him to tell her what he wants in her. Maya asks if he still loves her and wants to be her husband now that the whole world knows. Maya needs to hear him say it. Rick says nothing and the call is ended. She continues to cry.
Ricks car is shown to have crashed on the side of the road. Rick is shown passed out with the airbag out and the horn going off.
