Nicole, Maya, and Rick all walk into the living room of the Forrester Mansion. Maya doesnt know exactly what happened but she thinks that the psych evaluation went over well. Rick feels that it is good to talk together. Rick hopes that Nicole wasnt freaked out at all. Nicole promises that she wasnt. They have all been reading up on surrogacy and Doctor March reminded her that this wasnt the most normal way to go about this but she was glad that she will be able to do this. Maya guesses that they will wait for the lab results and then they can do paperwork. Maya suggests that Nicole should have something to eat. Nicole reminds her that she cant police her food intake until the baby shows up. Maya says fine. Rick wonders if she would at least like some tea. Nicole is good. Rick thinks that she is. She is amazing. He could thank her up and down all day and it still wouldnt be enough. Nicole does after everything they have done for her. Rick doesnt think that this in anyway compares to what they are asking. Maya asks if she has spoken to Zende. Nicole is telling him today.
Zende walks into Ricks office where Carter is looking into files. Zende explains that he put together paperwork from the line and put it on his desk. Carter didnt ask him to do that. Zende knows. He just thought he would try his hand and see if it looks good. Carter would be happy to. He thinks that Zende is ambitious and doing a good job. That is important to a good future. He wonders how things are going with Nicole. He wonders if Nicole has told Rick and Maya that she wont be the surrogate. Zende says that she hasnt said much on the subject but he assumes that because she just texted to meet her that she will tell him now.
In Ridges office Caroline is preoccupied. Caroline promises Ridge that she is fine. She is still wrapping her head around everything. Ridge hopes that she is because they are in this together. Caroline still cannot believe that Ridge defused Brooke. Ridge thinks that it is normal. Brooke walks in and Ridge whispers to Caroline to put on the show. Brooke asks if they are busy. Caroline says no and asks what is up. Brooke guesses that congratulations are in order. She hugs Caroline. Caroline looks unsure of herself. Brooke assumes that she must be thrilled. Caroline loves it. Brooke knows that she has wanted this and now it is happening. Caroline is grateful and happy. Brooke knew about the vasectomy. Ridge doesnt think that needs to be public knowledge. Brooke reminds him that they are sort of in the room alone right now. Ridge points out that the walls have ears around here. Especially the one next to Pams desk.
Maya guesses that is why Nicole is not hungry. She is worried about how Zende is going to react. Nicole explains that he is not exactly thrilled with the fact that she is carrying their child. Maya thinks that is understandable. Ridge explains that is why they are so thrilled that she is doing this for them. They can never repay her. Maya promises that if she has second thoughts she can change her mind up until the last minute. Nicole doesnt think that is very nice. Rick promises her that they would understand. They would still be grateful. Nicole wants to do this but there are a lot of blind alleys such as Zende and how being pregnant will be. Zende walks in and asks what she had to tell him. He wonders if she has made a final choice on the surrogacy. Nicole has. Zende notes that no one is talking and asks what is going on. Maya is going to give them some space. Rick and Maya leave. Zende doesnt think that she even has to say anything. He can tell just by looking at her.
Brooke looks at one of the sketches and thinks that it is beautiful. She wonders if it is Thomass. Ridge says that they arent going to use it. Brooke asks why not. Ridge explains that it doesnt really go with the rest of the line. Brooke is sure that if he were here he would be able to change it to make it work. He seems to be adapting to his style. Ridge thinks that Thomas is a fine designer but he needs to fine line a few things. Carter walks in and asks if Ridge is free for lunch they have some things to look over. Ridge asks if it will take more than a half hour. Carter promises it wont. Ridge asks if Carter has heard any good news so far or if he hasnt seen Pam at all. Carter hasnt. Ridge tells him that Caroline is expecting. Carter hugs both of them and congratulates them.
In the Forrester kitchen Rick asks Maya how she thinks Zende will react. Maya thinks that he wont take it as well as they are. Rick knows that carrying their child could take a toll on their relationship. Maybe not completely but damage will be done. Maya really doesnt want Nicole to sacrifice her first love for them. Rick hopes that it doesnt come to that.
Zende knows that she is doing it. Nicole is leaning towards it. She did tell Maya that she would do it. They actually met with some doctors but there are a lot of steps that have to be taken. Zende knows what it would mean to her to give her sister a baby. Maya reminds him that it is what it would mean to her. Zende wants them to get closer. Nicole wants that too eventually. Zende wants it now. He wants to have fun and dance. Nicole reminds him that pregnant women can dance. Zende thinks that she knows what it means. Nicole isnt making light of the situation. She is crazy about him. There is an enormous thing that she could do for her sister though. They were a part for so long and this can only make them closer. It has to be now. She is pre everything. She doesnt have a career yet. They are just starting out. Once that changes and things start to go off. She wont be available. This is the only window Rick and Maya have and they have never asked anything till now. She isnt questioning how Zende feels. She is just hoping that he can hang on with her. If he cant then she understands. If he says that he absolutely cant do it, then maybe she wouldnt. That is just how much she cares about him. She is just hoping that he doesnt throw it down her back later.
Carter is in awe that Ridge is having another kid. Ridge never expected this with Caroline. Carter notes that man plans and God laughs. Ridge cant live without her. He will give her whatever she wants to make her happy. On the other side of the room, Brooke whispers to Caroline if she agrees with Ridge that Thomas best serves the design team in Paris. Caroline does. Brooke thinks that seems counterproductive. If Ridge has issues with Thomass designs, then he should be here so Ridge can tell him how to make those changes. It just doesnt make sense to her unless Ridge doesnt want Thomas on the design team at all. Carter walks over and tells the two of them that they should talk to Katie about pointers on starting a daycare at the office. Caroline thinks that it seems over kill to make a daycare for one kid. Carter thinks that you never know. People get pregnant when you least expect it.
Rick wonders if Nicole might change her mind. Zende could change her mind. Maya thinks that she knows her sister. She might have doubts but she doesnt think that she would have said yes if she didnt want to see it through. Rick guesses that means that they are having a baby. Maya asks if he can imagine watching a baby grow. She loves that Nicole is doing this. Rick thinks that this is incredible. Maya knows that there is nothing that they can do or so to repay Nicole for this. Rick explains that if she ever needs anything to the end of time she will come to them. Maya will be the most beautiful mother. He kisses her.
Zende isnt about strong arming her into doing what he wants. It is her sister and her body and her decision. He is her boyfriend though. Nicole is so happy to have him in her life. The two kiss. Nicole knows that this affects them. She wants him to feel heard. Zende thinks that she knows where she stands. He doesnt want to put the break on them. Zende doesnt think that it leaves much time for anything. Nicole has to do it. Carrying a child for her sister is the most important gift she can give Maya. Maya gave her all this. Without Maya she would never have found him. Zende is grateful but she has been special to her since the first moment that she met her. Zende doesnt want to stop. Nicole doesnt either and asks if they really have to. Zende explains that the reality is that once she gets pregnant Maya and Ricks baby will be right in her stomach. It will be between them.
Carter and Brooke leave. Caroline explains that Brooke was questioning Thomas again. Ridge asks what she was doing. Caroline tells him that she was going on about why Thomas isnt here if the style isnt working for them. Ridge knows that she will keep asking until she has answers to everything. Caroline assumes that her asking questions is normal then because he left so suddenly. Ridge thinks so. Caroline would love to just live in the moment. Ridge thinks that she is rubbing off on her. The two kiss each other.
Zende explains that if they turn into something he wants her first child to be his. Nicole promises that this isnt her baby. It is Rick and Mayas. That is the only way to look at it. Zende asks how everything she says only makes him love her more. Nicole asks if he really loves her. Nicole loves him too. The two of them kiss each other. Zende promises that it wont be the end of them. Nicole hopes it brings them closer. Maya asks if she needs more time. Nicole thinks that they are good. Rick asks if Zende is good. Zende thinks that Nicole is a good person and she needs to do this because that is who she is. Loving and selfless. He wonders how he wouldnt support him. Someone knocks on the door. Maya thanks them both because they are being so selfless. Rick opens the door and it is Julius and Vivienne. Maya asks what they are doing here. Julius wanted to see his girls. Nicole wants to know why they are in town. Julius wonders if he is happy to see them. Vivienne missed them so much. Julius had some time to do some soul searching. He is sorry. Vivienne promises that he means what he is saying. Julius explains that this rift on their families has been weighing into him heavily. They need to heal all of them. Julius is willing to try and accept who she is. Maya explains she is a woman. Julius understands that she is Ricks wife and is Maya Forrester.
