Maya looks sad at Dayzees. She guesses that Nicole couldnt keep her mouth shut again. Rick doesnt want Maya to blame Nicole. She knows how stubborn he can be. Rick notices Mayas suitcase on the ground. He wonders if she really wasnt going t tell him. Maya gets uncomfortable and tells Rick that someone could see them. Rick doesnt think that they have all that much left to be curious about. Rick remembers back before everyone knew. Maya never used to hide. She was so proud. It was her birth right. It is his too. It is every ones but it is also worth fighting for. Rick begs her not to go.
Eric asks if Ridge just told him that his time is over here. Liam mentions before things get out of hand that he is the one who started all of this the last time Steffy came to town. Eric cannot believe that Ridge, Steffy, and Liam have been plotting to kick him out since then. Steffy and Liam say no. Liam does not think that this is about Eric at all. It just so happens that he is protecting Rick. Eric knows that it is not about him. It is about Ridge being insecure that his little brother has actually had success. Eric wonders what Stephanie would say about this. Ridge thinks that she would jump for joy.
Nicole knows that she is the one who started all of this. Carter doesnt want her to take the responsibility for this. Bill Spencer did the damage. Nicole was thinking of telling Rick devastating things but then she had to tell Rick where Maya is. Carter hopes that she is still there. Carter hands Nicole an envelope. He tells her that if she doesnt have a bank account then she should start one. Nicole wonders what this is for. Carter says that it is to make sure that Nicole is ok. Maya is leaving LA.
Rick doesnt even know how many messages he left. Maya turned her phone off she was getting way to much press. Rick knows that she handed in her resignation. Rick wonders if she remembers their first day here together. She thought that he was a waiter. Maya remembers. Rick asks if she remembers how upset she got when she found out Rick wasnt what she thought. Rick feels that he was allowed a reaction too. Maya just doesnt feel that it is the same thing. Rick knows that buried down in his mind are ideas of how things are supposed to be but he would like Maya to be patient with him. He might not say the right things but he feels the right things. Maya believes that he did. That was until the whole world knew.
Katie is on the phone in Bills office with someone who is complaining about the Maya article. Katie tells them that they are indeed looking into firing the person who wrote the article. She claims that the company is indeed in contact with the transgender community. Ivy walks in. Katie hangs up and tells herself that at least they should be. Ivy says hello. Katie tells her that Liam isnt here yet. Ivy knows but thought she would wait for him in his office. She knows though that he might just have a new office at Forrester though. Katie asks if it really is done. Ivy guesses so. Ivy wants Katie to guess who is back from Paris again. Katie rolls her eyes.
Eric tells Ridge that all of this is some sort of pipe dream. Some sort of fantasy that they all share. Eric will not be removed. Ridge explains that this is about ownership. All of their shares together of the company out do Eric. They are revoking Erics power to name the next CEO of the company. Eric tells them the hell they are. Eric has the loyalty of all the employees out there. Most of them think of Ridge as some sort of entitled ego maniac. One word from him and they all walk. Eric hopes that the three of them can sew. Ridge guesses that Eric is right. The employees worship him. If Eric were to ask them to leave more than likely eight out of ten would. Liam feels that this is getting way to hypothetical. Ridge wonders if this is how Eric wants to leave them. If he really wants to leave them jobless. Steffy doesnt think that this has to be some big catastrophe or big change. Eric explains to Steffy that Rick has an iron clad contract. Ridge knows that other than the morality clause. Steffy knows that Eric is going to be mad at them for a while. Eric wonders if she knew what just occurred to him. He wishes that she were more like her mother.
Nicole doesnt want money. She wants her sister. Carter doesnt think that this has anything to do with him. Nicole thinks that they have to tell Maya not to leave. Carter feels that she either left or Rick is with her. Carter does not think that they can do anything to stop her.
Rick is going to be really honest with her and it is probably going to come out badly. The same thing that happened to her happens to him. She said that she was afraid that Rick would think about her differently. Maya knows that when people find out that she is trans they get this look. They stop looking at her in her eyes. Rick feels that the same thing had happened to him when Spencer did what he did and everyone started looking at him. They were talking about them and their bodies and their most intimate moments. It made Rick scared. Maya knows how demeaning it is. Rick wonders if that is why it took her so long to tell him because she didnt want him looking at her that way. Maya owed it to him either way. Rick agrees that he thinks she did. When Maya moved to LA everyone knew the basic facts about her. Then when Dayzee left almost no one knew. Nobody asked any questions and she thought it was a good thing. Then she fell in love. There is no rule book about when you are supposed to say certain things. She just didnt see how much she was cutting herself off from him. She wanted to tell him about her childhood and her teenage years and the time she climbed up on the railing of a bridge. Rick wants to know these things. He doesnt want to feel cheated. Maya says that they can keep in touch if that is something he would like. Rick wants to know why Maya thinks he is here. Maya guesses it was closure. Rick never heard the question. When she was on the phone and leaving Big Bear. What was the question that she asked? Maya is crying hysterically. She says that the question was if he still loved her and wanted to marry her. Rick starts crying too. He never heard that question. His car went off the road. Maya is shocked to hear this. Rick wonders if she wants to ask him again. Maya sort of smiles.
Ivy doesnt think that Eric knows what is going on yet. Bill thinks that Liam is his boy and that he better get something in writing. When Ridge makes a decision it always has a certain short shelf life. Bill is assuming that Steffy dropped a certain pre condition. Bill is assuming this because he is hearing all of this from Ivy. Ivy explains that she thinks Steffy is just changing her strategy. Katie doesnt want Ivy to be worried by Steffy. Ivy just isnt sure though. She suspects that in Steffys mind she is just on the up and up. Bill has completely ignored them and is happy that Rick has finally learned that he cannot treat a niece of his like garbage. Katie is not going to let Bill use what Rick did to Caroline as a way to justify what Bill did to Maya. Bill thinks she is a fraud. With Bill what you see is what you get.
Steffy would like to finish this conversation later. Eric feels that any conversation that Steffy or Ridge would like to have with him is pretty much over. Liam feels that if he is not mistaken everyone here tried to tell Eric how bad things were under Rick and Eric didnt listen. Eric is disappointed in Liam. He is not surprised with Ridge and Steffy though. Ridge tells him to stop. Ridge feels that any choice Eric made about Rick has lead him right here. Steffy cannot take this battle of male egos. Nobody died. Eric supposes that they would like him to clear out of his office. Ridge reminds him that he doesnt have an office. He gave it to Rick. As long Eric has a breath in his body Rick is going to keep it. Ridge is sorry but that experiment is over. Eric leaves.
Maya asks if Rick is ok. Rick thinks that it depends. Maya is so sorry. She honestly thought that he had hung up. Rick gets it. Rick can understand that Maya might think the future doesnt hold any good for her. Rick is going to have to unconvinced her of that. Rick gets a phone call. Rick tells Maya not to leave. Maya notes that it could be work. Rick thinks that work can wait. Maya knows that they will just call him back. Rick picks up his phone. Eric is on the other line and tells Rick that Ridge has done it or at least thinks that he has. He has found a way to get Rick and him out of the company. Rick thinks that Ridge must be bluffing. He wonders where Eric is. Eric tells him that he is in the CEO office. Rick will be there as soon as he can. Rick hangs up. Rick tells Maya that Ridge has come up with a way to fire Eric and replace him. Maya doesnt think that he should let Ridge do that. He has worked too hard for this. Rick knows and they are not finished here. Maya knows. He needs to go though. He needs to do whatever it takes to stop Ridge. Rick wants her to promise that she will still be here. Maya will take her bag and go upstairs. She will wait to hear from him. He needs to take care of business first. She is not going anywhere. Rick tells Maya that to answer her question he loves her. He leaves and Maya smiles.
Steffy doesnt think that was very easy. Steffy feels for Eric but he needs to realize that this isnt about him but Rick. Ridge thinks that this also had something to do with Brooke and Taylor. It goes further back than that though. All the way back to Stephanie. Ridge was who she always loved most. That question was always around but never at the dinner table. Stephanie always knew something Eric didnt. That Ridge was her biological son but not Erics. It colored everything. The way she treated him and the way he treated her. Ridge thinks that looking back they never had a chance. Steffy decides that if Ridge is not Erics son then she is not his granddaughter. Steffy supposes that she is disowned after today. Ridge hugs her.
Eric assumes that Ridge is having Carter draw all this up right now. Rick knows that Ridge controls the legal department through him. They will have to have a formal meeting with all of the shareholders. They have until then. Eric would like to know what difference it would make. They have the votes. Rick points out Thomass votes are not enough for Ridge and Steffy to take controlling interest. Rick wants to know why Liam was there. He wonders if Bill couldnt make time in his busy schedule. Eric doubts that Ridge would ever do business with Bill. They hate each other. Rick wants to know how Liam got Bills shares then. Rick knows that Bill likes having his foot in the door here. He wouldnt just give that away. Eric wants to know what he is thinking.
Bill opens up a bottle of champagne and pours it for himself and Liam. He wants to know how Eric took it. Liam is not going to lie. It was bad. Bill figures that he will get over it. Liam is going to be vice president or at least he will be when it is made official. He wonders how they are going to deal with that. Bill assures Liam that if he cant handle it then Katie can. She loves being over worked. Rick is out and he accomplished what the rest of them could not. He cliques Liams glass and they drink. Liam reminds him that includes Bill outing Maya. Bill still thinks that gave it a little nudge. Bill thinks that a certain amount of outrage comes with the territory and speaking of that Ivy was here. Liam has to have a conversation with her not that Steffy is back. Liam did it though. He told Ivy he would get her and Caroline out of Ricks way and he did it. Bill thinks that it feels good to win big. Liam agrees. Bill thinks that there might be hope for him yet. The clique glasses again and drink.
Rick is on his computer and shows Eric that there have been no sales. If anything exchanged hands then they would be seeing Liams name on it. Rick knew that Bill wouldnt give up those shares out of the kindness of his heart. Bill knows that Ridge wont play if he knows Bill is on his team. Ridge is so arrogant that he didnt bother double checking. Eric wonders if Rick is thinking what he thinks he is. Rick wonders if they can negotiate with Bill not to vote with Ridge.
Ridge looks at Steffy. She asks him what. Ridge tells her that she is the next CEO of Forrester. Steffy will be assuming that she ever is given the reins. Ridge knows what Eric did. He threw himself a retirement party and then showed up at work the next day. Ridge knows this is it. This is their legacy. Steffys tomorrow but his today. Steffy says finally and Ridge repeats her.
