“Hope”: I’m alive if you say I am.

Thomas: No, you’re not. You are going back to the box and back to Forrester now.

“Hope”: Wouldn’t it just be easier to take me to work with you in the morning?

Thomas: Hope is probably looking for you.

“Hope”: She’s not.

Thomas: You can’t know that.

“Hope”: Of course I can. I know because I am her.

Steffy: That motorcycle accident felt like the final straw. Last piece of bad luck that pushed me over the edge.

Finn: You were already dealing with so much.

Steffy: Yeah, but I wasn’t actually dealing with it. Just try to tough it out like I always do. But what you said before, about pointing me in the right direction is exactly what you did when you were taking care of me at the hospital, and you were taking care of me here. Visiting me in rehab? You were pointing me towards something I haven’t felt in a very long time – peace. I’m ready to move forward. You’ve given me a whole, new perspective on my life and my future. I want you in it. I’ve been feeling this way for a while now. I just – I didn’t wanna tell you while I was in treatment. I didn’t want you to think I was expressing gratitude for help. I mean, I am. I am grateful. But it’s more than that. Finn, I love you.

Finn: I love you, too.

Steffy: Mm. Battered and bruised, fresh off a motorcycle accident?

 

Steffy: Keep saying things like that, and I’ll have to keep you around.

Finn: Ah, my evil plan is working.

 

Hope: But if you continue to just run after Steffy, trying to rescue her from a man that she is happy with, that is not only disrespectful to her, it is disrespectful to me, and I really, really hope that you can see that, Liam, especially given our history. I’m your wife. We’re raising children together. And that’s where your focus should be. That’s where your attention should be. I mean, Beth, Douglas, and I, we need that from you, and we deserve that from you. I’m asking you again to just… let it go. Let Steffy go.

Liam: What do you mean?
Hope: Well, she hasn’t really had a serious relationship since your marriage ended, and this is new territory for all of us, and it might take some getting used to. I also think you may need to consider the possibility that your attitude toward Finn may stem from the fact that… you’re jealous.
——————————————————-
Finn: You didn’t have a minute alone in the center. Are you not craving, like, a little bit of privacy?
Steffy: Privacy? I’m a single mom. I don’t even know what that word means.

Recap by Lori

It’s Ridge and Shauna’s wedding day and Ridge is at the office working. Eric is surprised to see Ridge there, instead of getting ready for the ceremony. Eric thinks Ridge is distracting himself with work, but Ridge denies it. He explains that he just saw Steffy in rehab. As Eric is telling his son it’s okay if he’s having second thoughts about the wedding, Carter walks in. Ridge tells them he came there to work, not talk about Brooke; he’s always going to be in love her, no matter what happens. Carter he tells Ridge that if the wedding’s really happening, he needs to go over his notes for the ceremony and he’d like to get some input from the groom. Ridge blasts Carter for not listening to him, and Carter replies that if that’s Ridge’s way of telling everyone it’s not going to happen, then he’ll be there to back him up. In the Designers office, Zoe and Carter are preparing to leave for the wedding. Zoe wonders where Katie is – they were supposed to talk about HFTF’s social media blast. Carter says she went to Eric’s to drop something off then muses that if she runs into Quinn and Shauna, things could get messy. Carter thinks Ridge really doesn’t want to go through with the wedding. Later, Ridge is getting ready to leave the office and starts thinking about happier times with Brooke. Katie walks in, relieved that Ridge is still there. She tells Ridge that Shauna has not been a good friend to him. Ridge doesn’t think it’s fair to Shauna that he doesn’t remember the ceremony. Katie tells him she does deserve it. Ridge reveals Brooke is the love of his life and that’s why he can’t go through with the ceremony and then Katie agrees – especially after he finds out what Quinn and Shauna have been up to – he needs to know the truth about what happened that night in Vegas.

Wyatt and Flo are at Spencer Publications changing into their wedding attire. Flo is excited and very happy for her mom. At Brooke’s place, Donna is consoling her sister and giving her words of encouragement. Brooke confesses that if Ridge goes through with the wedding, she’s afraid it’s going to be the end for them – she’s got to do something to stop it. She decides to go to Eric’s (the Forrester mansion). Meanwhile, Quinn is at the Forrester mansion, preparing for the wedding, and having a video chat with Shauna, who is at another friend’s house getting ready. Quinn tells her she has to let go of what happened in Vegas – after today, it’s all going to be wiped clean. (As she says this, the door behind Quinn opens slightly.) Shauna’s feeling guilty over what happened in Vegas and she wants to come clean to Ridge before the wedding – she can’t go through with it if she’s not being honest with him. Quinn tries pleading with Shauna, telling her she won’t let her sabotage herself like this -they could both lose everything. Finally, the door opens quietly and Katie steps out – she heard everything and is shocked! As Eric starts coming down the stairs, Quinn scrambles and hangs up the phone, Katie ducks back into the kitchen. Eric heard Quinn mention Brooke and assumes that Quinn must’ve been on the phone with Shauna. Eric reminds Quinn that this is a sad day for Brooke and he’d hate to think that she’s taking pleasure in it.

Recap by Lori

At Forrester Creations, Ridge and Brooke are in the CEO’s office. He has just broken the news that he’s going to have a second wedding ceremony with Shauna, and Brooke is stunned. She tries to convince him that Shauna and Quinn are manipulating him, but he’s unmoved. In the Designers Office, Zoe and Carter discuss Brooke and Ridge, and how surprising it is that Ridge would be married to Shauna when he still cares for Brooke. Zoe reassures him that he was just following a directive from Ridge and shouldn’t feel guilty. Later, Ridge comes in and asks Carter to officiate the wedding ceremony. Carter feels uneasy about the first time Ridge married Shauna and questions Ridge about being sure if this is what he really wants to do knowing he’s still in love with Brooke. Ridge appreciates Carter looking out for him, but tell him there’s another reason he came to see him – Carter’s being promoted to COO. Eric comes in and congratulates Carter on his new role. They tell Carter to go out and celebrate. After Carter leaves, Ridge and Eric discuss the wedding to take place tomorrow. Eric asks Ridge if he’s sure he wants to do it – Shauna’s a wonderful woman, but is the woman he wants to grow old with still Brooke? Ridge doesn’t understand what the big deal is – he’s already married to Shauna and he’s very happy. Eric reveals that he and Quinn disagree on this and he tells Ridge he doesn’t have to honor his marriage to Shauna if he wants to spend his life with Brooke. Eric’s concerned that if Ridge goes through with it, he’ll lose his future with Brooke forever. Later in the Designers Office, Carter returns and tells Zoe the good news about being promoted to COO.

At the Forrester mansion, Quinn is still on the phone with Shauna when Eric walks in. When he asks what’s happening, Quinn brushes it off that Shauna’s just having last-minute wedding jitters, then Quinn catches up Eric on her plans to have the wedding at their house tomorrow, where the whole family can celebrate. Later, Eric has left. Brooke arrives, wanting to talk to him, but decides to stay and have it out with Quinn. Brooke sees that Ridge is being pressured into the wedding and she wonders how Shauna can ask Ridge to repeat their vows – this time while he’s sober – knowing how much he still loves Brooke – she knows there’s no way Eric supports this. Quinn, who seems pretty sure of herself, tells Brooke it all ends for her tomorrow.

Recap by Lori

At the Forrester mansion, Ridge is getting ready to leave for the office. He and Quinn catch up on Steffy getting checked into rehab and being under Dr. Finnegan’s care. Quinn changes the conversation to Ridge and Shauna and asks if he’s given anymore thought to having another wedding to make up for Ridge not remembering getting married in Vegas. Quinn presses Ridge and then before he can object, she quickly gets Shauna on the phone to talk about planning the wedding. Shauna is hesitant, but Ridge thinks that maybe Quinn is right and he owes it to Shauna. Ridge leaves for the office and Quinn continues her conversation with Shauna about sticking it to Brooke. Shauna is having guilt pangs, but Quinn tells her if she doesn’t want to take the chance of Brooke finding out about their secret, she needs to marry Ridge tomorrow!

At Forrester Creations in the CEO’S office, Zoe comes in to drop off some designs for Steffy’s review, interrupting Brooke and Donna talking about Steffy. They fill in Zoe on Steffy being in rehab and then the conversation turns to the current state of Brooke’s relationship with Ridge and his being married to Shauna. Zoe is sympathetic. They talk about Zoe’s tarnished history with the family and agree to move past it, then circle back to Ridge’s marriage to Shauna. Brooke believes that Quinn has been in Shauna’s ear and she knows that Quinn would do anything to destroy her. Donna leaves Zoe and Brooke alone and they talk about Zoe’s love life. Zoe hopes to one day find true love, like Brooke and Ridge – something that endures all obstacles. Later, Brooke is alone and Ridge arrives. She tells him she respects him for getting help for Steffy and his fierce love for his family is one of the many reasons why she will always love him. Ridge appreciates her concern, but then he breaks the news about committing to a second wedding ceremony to Shauna.

At the cliff house, Steffy’s intervention continues… Steffy is sobbing. She doesn’t think there’s a reason to quit and insists that the pills are helping her.  Finn finally asks where she got the pills and Steffy lies, saying she got them from the pharmacy. They don’t believe her. She yells and orders them out of the house, but they’re not leaving. Steffy continues to argue that she needs the pills and she needs her daughter. Ridge tells her they all want her to get better, but it’s not going to happen if she keeps going down that road – she’ll never see her daughter again and neither will he. Ridge empathizes – they know she’s in pain physically and emotionally, but the pills aren’t helping her and it’s time to let it go – she’s got to do it for Kelly. Steffy’s on an emotional rollercoaster, shifting between lashing out in denial and sobbing. Finn tells her that she’s been experiencing signs of addiction and her abuse of these pills has a ripple effect. Ridge admits that he’s scared – he doesn’t recognize her and she’s not acting like his daughter anymore. Liam tells her she’s acting like an addict. Finn tells her they’re not there to judge her, though – she’s ill. Steffy brings it back to her daughter being taken away from her and she feels ill about that. She thinks if she needs to take a pill every now and then, it shouldn’t be a problem. In fact, she needs help NOW and she gets her pills. As she’s trying to open the bottle, the pills scatter to the floor. Her willpower is gone, she sobs. Liam tells her it’s not about willpower – it’s a disease and she’s actually sick. Finn interjects that there are effective treatments, she just needs to take the first step by admitting she has a problem. Steffy counters that her only problem is that her daughter isn’t there. Ridge tells her if she wants her daughter back, get better, then she’ll get her back. Steffy breaks down and has an epiphany and admits she’s addicted.

At the cabin, Thomas arrives to pick up Douglas, who is at the house with Donna. Hope realizes that Thomas may not know the recent chain of events with Steffy, so she fills him in, telling him it was so bad that Steffy had pulled out a knife, which upsets him. She’s hoping things might change today, if Liam and Steffy’s doctor can convince her to get help. Thomas assumes that Steffy’s doctor is the one who gave her the pills and that’s why he’s involved. Hope corrects him – Steffy’s doctor was just as shocked as everyone else when he found out. Thomas realizes that they’re doing a full-on intervention and decides that he should be there, too, but Hope stops him from going. She assures him that they’ll get through to Steffy and will get her the help that she needs.

At the cabin, Liam and Hope talk about Steffy and their decision to have Kelly stay with them to keep her safe from Steffy. Liam’s mad at himself for not seeing the trouble Steffy was in earlier. Finn arrives. Liam invited him over so he could break the news about what’s happening with Steffy. Finn is shocked. He asks how Steffy reacted when Liam found the pills, and Liam tells him that she didn’t deny she was using them. When Liam explains why he had to take Kelly away from Steffy, Finn doesn’t disagree with what he did, but he is concerned that it could be a huge emotional setback – especially considering what happened when the truth came out about Beth – and it could make Steffy feel the need to use even more. Finn asks if anyone’s spoken to Steffy today. Hope and Liam tell him that Ridge stayed with her overnight – Hope muses that she wouldn’t be surprised if Ridge refuses to leave until Steffy’s completely off the meds. They tell him about how Steffy’s personality changed and that she pulled a knife on them. Finn acknowledges that those are signs of someone struggling with addiction. Finn suggests that maybe he can get through to Steffy. Liam thinks they should all come together and try to convince Steffy to get the help she needs. Finn agrees. Liam and Finn decide to go to Steffy’s and show a united front.

Meanwhile, Ridge stayed overnight with Steffy at the cliff house. She wakes up and finds him still there. He didn’t want to leave her alone. When he asks how she’s feeling, she replies that he knows how she feels – Hope and Liam stole her baby. Ridge corrects her – Hope and Liam didn’t steal her baby – they’re taking care of her until Steffy’s able to. Steffy gets defensive. Ridge reassures her that he wasn’t implying she’s a bad mother – she’s an amazing parent when she’s not taking pain medication. He pleads that she’s got to stop, and not for him or even for herself, but for her little girl. Steffy tells him he’s blowing the situation way out of proportion – she’s not some addict – if she was an actual addict, she reasons, all of this would be hidden. Ridge tells her she’s in denial and if she doesn’t admit that there’s a problem, there’s no way to fix it. So, she tells him he’s right – she does have a problem, and he can help her – he can go over to Brooke’s house and bring her daughter home to her because not having her daughter with her is the only problem she has. Ridge empathizes. He gets that she’s been through a lot and that maybe she wants to be able to depend on being able to take a pill to help her get through the day. Steffy’s adamant that she’s not dependent on the pills and she’s not an addict – she accuses Ridge of siding with Liam and Hope. Ridge argues that that no one is siding with anyone – they all love her and are trying to get her better – she needs rehab. Steffy launches into a rage, then grabs her keys and starts heading for the door. She’s going to get daughter and bring her home. But Ridge stops her – she’s not going anywhere until she admits she has a problem and gets help. As their arguing escalates, Liam arrives. Steffy asks if he brought Kelly. He says no – he brought someone else, though. Finn walks in. He tells her that Liam is very concerned and called him, and after what he’s heard, he’s concerned, too. Steffy tries to downplay the situation. She says she needs a little help a bit longer to get her over this hump; she’ll be fine. Finn asks where she got the drugs, but she yells that she doesn’t have to tell him, then she orders all of them to leave. Liam gently tells her he loves her and wouldn’t lie to her – she’s got a big problem, and none of this is her fault – she was hurt in an accident and managing her pain got away from her, and now they’ve got to deal with it. Taking Kelly wasn’t permanent – he wants Kelly back with her as soon as possible – then he urges her to use Kelly as a motivator to get help. Steffy desperately pleads – there is no help; she needs her pills.
