Recap by Lori

At Brooke’s house, Steffy is in a drug-induced rage, demanding that Liam and Hope give Kelly back to her. Hope tells Steffy that until she gets the help she needs, Kelly’s staying with her and Liam. Just as Steffy’s about to force her way past Hope, Ridge arrives. Ridge wants to know what’s going on and Steffy pleads with him to help her. Brooke tells him there’s more going on than he realizes. Liam tries describing to Ridge what he walked in on when he found Steffy passed out on the couch. Steffy keeps interrupting and tries to downplay what happened. Liam finally tells Ridge that she’s been abusing pain pills and it’s endangering their daughter. At first, Ridge can’t believe that Steffy’s taking the pills because she told him she wouldn’t – and she wouldn’t lie to him. Liam reveals that he found a whole bottle of pills and Steffy admitted they were hers and she’s been taking them. Liam thought the doctor was the problem, but he doesn’t even know about the pills. Ridge wants to know where she got them, but she won’t say. Ridge begs her to tell him what’s going on. She sobs that no one understands what it’s like for her, then she goes into a tirade about the Logans. Ridge tells her it’s all going to be okay – there’s nothing wrong with her, it’s the pills – he’s going to get her some help. But she doesn’t want his pity. She says she’s done with this and she wants her little girl now – then she pulls out a switchblade. Everyone tries to reason with her to put the knife down. Finally, Ridge gets her to drop it. She tells him she’ll never forgive him or any of them, then she leaves. Ridge follows behind her, telling the rest of them to take care of his granddaughter and he’ll take care of Steffy.

At Forrester Creations, Thomas flashes back to Steffy’s frenzy looking for her keys so she can chase after Liam, whom she claims had just stolen her child. Zoe walks in to get a gown that Ridge had been working on, then says she can come back later. Thomas asks her to stay because there’s something he wants to tell her. He wants to apologize to her – what he did to her was horrible, selfish, and cruel, and she didn’t deserve it – he really did care about her. Zoe is sure that they can keep their relationship professional and thinks it’s best to just keep everything behind them. Thomas continues – it wasn’t all a scam – he wouldn’t have proposed to her if he didn’t have feelings for her. She tells him he’s apologized enough; she appreciates his honesty and remorse – but before she can say any more, he starts talking about Steffy and sharing what she’s been going through. Zoe observes that if Liam took Steffy’s daughter away it had to be for some good reason. Thomas admits that Steffy was out of control and he’s trying to figure out why, so he told his father, who went to Liam and Hope’s to see what he could find out. Zoe empathizes with Thomas and assures him that everything will work out.

Steffy: I could have died. No, you don’t understand! You don’t understand what it’s like! None of you do! [ Sobs ] I’m going through hell! I can barely work! And I’m alone! I don’t have my daughter. I don’t have Liam. I wanted a life with him, but you took him from me! [motions to Hope] You took him from me, just like Brooke took you [motions to Ridge], took you from me and Phoebe and Thomas, but that’s what the Logans do! Hello! It’s what they do! They just take and take and take! God! She destroyed your relationship with Mom, and now Hope destroyed my relationship with Liam! Now you take Phoebe away from me. Now you want to take Kelly? I’m losing my mind here!

Thomas: And his mom. You throw a pretty wicked curveball, by the way. Yeah, we just, uh– we’re gonna put him straight into baseball. He’s gonna rise up the ranks, you know, maybe MVP, then go into pros. Who knows if we’re gonna do college first? We gotta make a decision on that. Now I’m just talking to myself. Sorry. What are you doing?
Hope: I am setting a timer. I told Douglas he could play outside just a little while longer, but then it is… the dreaded bath time.
Thomas: Oh, no. Douglas hates the bath time.

Hope: Look, I’m secure in my relationship with Liam– our bond, our marriage. We’re–we’re in a good place. I’m more so worried about Steffy. I mean, if anyone deserves a freaking break, it’s her. And you know what? This handsome doctor might be exactly what the doctor ordered.
Thomas: I see what you did there.
Hope: Mm-hmm. Comedy gold in this one right here.
Thomas: You should go on tour. That was good.
—————————————————————————–
Thomas: Look, Steffy… has gone through so much as it is. I mean, she had her child, the one that she thought was hers, taken away from her and given to her actual mother, which was you. And then Liam’s gone. And she’s there in her house alone. Okay? And she’s trying to pretend like it doesn’t matter. It’s—it’s just burying herself in work and trying to follow Kelly around and acting like an emotional life doesn’t matter. And then to top all that off, Bill, with his ridiculous spray tan, comes along, and hits her while she’s on her motorcycle. And so, on top of the emotional pain that she’s dealing with, now she’s got this immense physical pain.

Recap by Lori

At Brooke’s house, Steffy is demanding that Liam and Hope give Kelly back to her. Hope offers Steffy to spend the night with them, where they can all be together, and Brooke offers her a room at her house if there’s not enough room at the cabin. Steffy says she’ll be staying at her house tonight and so will her daughter. Liam tells her Kelly will go home with her when Steffy’s ready, but not now. Steffy accuses Hope of being on a mission to take her daughter away from her. Steffy freaks out when she realizes Kelly isn’t in the house, and then Hope gets a message from Donna letting her know they’ve returned from getting ice cream, which momentarily calms her down. Liam and Hope try to reassure Steffy that they’re not trying to take Kelly away from her, they just want to give her time to recover and kick the pain medication. Liam suggests that they all go down to the cabin and have a nice visit. This upsets Steffy because she thinks he’s treating it like a court-ordered supervised visit. They all try to reason with her, but she starts lashing out at them, exclaiming that she’s not an addict. Liam tells her he’s doing his job as Kelly’s father protecting her, and he’s going to continue doing that, and Kelly’s going to stay with him and Hope until Steffy has gotten the help that she needs to get off of the pain pills. Steffy sobs, how can she be expected to get better without being able to be with her daughter? Brooke is empathetic and tries relating that she knows how scary it is to realize she has a problem, but Steffy is dismissive, telling Brooke that just because Brooke’s got a problem with alcohol not to go inventing addictions for everyone else. Liam tries to get Steffy to realize she has a serious problem by pointing out what could have happened if he wouldn’t have been there to wake her and Kelly needed her. At first, it appears that Liam hit a nerve, but then Steffy reacts by blasting them all, saying it’s always been about the Logans taking from the Forresters, and then she goes on a tirade about Hope taking “Phoebe” away from her, and then manipulating Douglas into forgetting all about his mother, and then she accuses Hope of attempting to replace Thomas – she’s got Liam and two beautiful children – it’s just like when Brooke took her father away from her mother. She cries that she wishes her mother were there. Brooke says she does too because they could use all the help they can get with her. Steffy goes to get Kelly but Hope blocks the door. Hope recalls how Steffy had taken such wonderful care of Beth before and now she’s going to return the favor; Kelly will stay with them until Steffy gets the help she needs.

At the cliff house, Ridge has rushed over to meet with Thomas who explains that Steffy is on her way to Liam and Hope’s. Thomas says he’s not sure what’s going on, he just knows that Steffy’s not acting like herself and she said Liam was making accusations against her and that he kidnapped Kelly. Ridge wonders if it’s just a big misunderstanding because, they both agree, that that doesn’t sound like something Liam would do. Thomas said Steffy was panicked and acting paranoid, like she was in pain, and he recalls the scene he witnessed when he arrived. He’s concerned that if she goes to Liam and Hope like that, it’s going to get worse. Ridge wants to help Steffy, but he doesn’t know what to do. He calls Brooke and leaves her a message saying he knows Steffy’s on her way over and he’s worried about her. After waiting for a while without a response from Brooke, Ridge decides to go over to her house and check on the situation. He tells Thomas to wait at Steffy’s in case she comes home.

Recap by Lori

At the cliff house, Liam and Steffy are arguing. He’s just told Steffy he’s taking their daughter because he’d found Steffy passed out after taking the pain pills. He tells Steffy he’s concerned about her but she doesn’t believe him. She laments that he doesn’t understand what it’s like for her being there alone, taking care of their daughter, while he’s “off happily married to Hope”. He empathizes but she feels like he’s trying to punish her by taking her daughter away from her. She cries that first he took Phoebe away from her and now he wants to take Kelly, but she’s not going to let that happen. As she’s lashing out, he says her family needs to see her like this. He tells her until she gets checked in somewhere and gets some kind of professional help, he can’t let her be around Kelly. Then he leaves. Thomas comes in as Steffy is frantically looking for her car keys. She tells him to go away. When he asks where Kelly is, she cries that Liam has “stolen” her and is taking her to Hope. Steffy’s freaking out, trying to find her keys. She tells Thomas that Liam was acting weird, yelling at her and belittling her, all because she “napping on the couch”. Thomas thinks that’s odd that Liam would be reacting so over-the-top, but Steffy keeps insisting she didn’t do anything wrong. Finally, she finds her keys then races out the door to go get her child, as Thomas follows after her.

Meanwhile, at Brooke’s house, Hope is visiting Brooke while Donna is watching the kids at the cabin. Hope updates Brooke on how Steffy’s doing, and talks about how much they enjoy having Kelly. Hope gushes over how talented Kelly is and how she’s a little clone of Liam. Brooke mentions what a great team Hope and Liam are parenting their blended family, then Hope adds that they care about Steffy and want her to get better, and they also want to help out and to be able to take care of Kelly and give her stability. Brooke thinks it’s great that Kelly’s been able to spend this extra time with everyone and Hope agrees that it’s been a lot of fun. Liam arrives and breaks the news that Steffy’s been lying to everyone, then recounts what he encountered when he was at Steffy’s. When he mentions the pills he explains that he doesn’t know where they came from and when he tried to find out, Steffy was out of control. He tells them he has Kelly – he dropped her off at the cabin with Donna and the kids. He insists he had to do it – he had to protect his daughter. Later, Hope tries texting Steffy but isn’t getting a response. Liam is beating himself up over taking Kelly the way he did, and Hope reassures him that he did the right thing – he couldn’t leave her there with Steffy high on pain medication. Steffy barges in looking for Kelly. She lashes out at all of them – she’s not going to let Liam take away the one thing that is still hers. She demands that they give her her daughter now.

Recap by Lori

At the cliff house, Liam has found Steffy’s hidden bottle of pills and he’s livid. He knew there was something wrong and Steffy wasn’t acting like herself – she’d been lying about taking more pills. Steffy’s defensive, telling him she didn’t take any, but he knows she’s still lying. She tells him he’s out of line. He’s concerned that she was passed out and it could’ve been worse – Kelly could’ve been the one to find her. But Kelly’s safe, she hisses back, and nothing happened. She thinks he’s making it out to be more than it was. He’s wondering why she won’t admit that she’s been trying to mask her pain. Steffy lashes out and accuses him of trying to rescue “some poor misguided soul” when she’s doing just fine taking care of herself. He knows she not if she’s still taking the pills, but she lies and says she’s not taking them. He doesn’t believe her, then he starts going off about her doctor, thinking he prescribed them. Finally, an agitated Steffy admits that she took them and reveals that her doctor doesn’t know. Liam asks why she would be keeping it secret from everyone, and Steffy cries it’s because she’s in pain – she’s been in pain since the motorcycle accident – and those pills are the only thing that help. Liam says he understands. She sobs, how could he know when he’s not there – he’s moved on and now she’s alone. Liam tries telling her she’s not alone – she’s got her family to support her. He adds that he doesn’t trust her doctor and she tells him her doctor has been nothing but kind and non-judgmental. She needs someone – her mother’s out of town, her father’s got his own issues, and Liam has Hope and their family – and the doctor is that someone. She orders Liam to leave. He says he will leave but he’s taking their daughter with him.

At the cabin, Hope and Thomas have been playing outside with the kids. They’ve been enjoying their time together, playing and parenting, but Hope’s distracted and wondering why Liam hasn’t returned from Steffy’s yet. This prompts a discussion about Liam being concerned about Steffy not being herself lately. Thomas justifies she hasn’t been herself because she’s been through so much, and he’s amazed she’s doing as well as she is considering she’s been off the high-powered pain pills. He figures Liam’s just trying to rescue the damsel-in-distress, but Hope argues that Steffy is one of the strongest women she knows. The conversation circles back again to Steffy’s relationship with her doctor and they both agree that it could be exactly what Steffy needs right now. While Thomas is outside with the kids, Hope is inside picking up toys. She looks at her wedding photo and reflects on happy times with Liam. Thomas comes in, they start talking about Liam. Thomas thinks Liam needs to back off and he might see that Steffy is doing really well. Hope believes Liam is just concerned about Steffy and his daughter. Later, Hope is outside playing with Douglas, and Thomas is inside reflecting on past romantic memories of him and Hope. She comes in as he’s texting Vinny. She thinks it’s sweet that Vinny’s been sending Steffy gifts. Thomas is wondering if she’s annoyed that Liam’s still over at Steffy’s, but she assures him that she’s not insecure and she knows that once Steffy’s recovered, everyone’s lives will go back to normal. She and Liam are there to help out with Kelly until Steffy is fully herself again.

Recap by Lori

At the cliff house, Steffy is unconscious on the couch. Liam tries to wake her up. It takes a while, but she finally opens her eyes. She’s groggy and doesn’t know if she fell asleep or passed out. Liam’s freaking out and asks if he needs to take her to the hospital. She tries to stand up but is unbalanced. Liam expresses his concern that usually Steffy’s a light sleeper but he had a hard time waking her up. Steffy gets defensive and insists that she just fell asleep, then wants to know why he’s there. He wants to talk to her about her relationship with her doctor. He doesn’t want her recovery in the hands of someone who can’t be objective about her treatment. Steffy lashes out – she’s heard enough and exclaims that she’s done, and she wants him to leave – she doesn’t need Liam anymore, she doesn’t need anyone, she’s fine. Liam is perplexed by her sudden change in attitude and behavior. He wants to know if she’s still taking the pills. She says the doctor refused to prescribe more, but Liam presses – he knows she’s hiding something from him and he’s pretty sure he knows what it is. Steffy denies there are any more pills in the house, but Liam doesn’t trust her and starts going through the living room, turning over seat cushions and pillows until he finds them. He pulls out her hidden bottle and is infuriated that she’s been lying to him.

At the cabin, Thomas is visiting, spending time with Douglas. Hope is grateful for Thomas allowing her to share Douglas with him and thanks him for listening to the family and doing the work to get his life back on track so he can be a better father to Douglas. In return, Thomas tells Hope that he wants his son to have the best life possible and that means having her as his mother, and he’s grateful to her. Hope mentions that Liam’s not home, he’s off “rescuing Steffy” (unbeknownst to her it turns out being in the literal sense). She accepts that Steffy is a constant in her life, especially now that Steffy and Liam have Kelly. Their conversation turns to Steffy being able to move forward with the new man in her life. They both agree that Liam needs to back off and let her move on. Thomas encourages Hope to reiterate that to Liam because the best thing Liam can do for Steffy, he reasons, is stay away from her. Later, they return from playing outside with the children and share their feelings and observations about Douglas and their influences on him. Then they talk about Steffy and everything she’s been through recently – they want her to find happiness and her doctor may have the potential to help her get there.

Recap by Lori

At Forrester Creations, Thomas and Liam are in the midst of verbal fisticuffs over Steffy spending time with Dr. Finnegan (“Finn”). Thomas thinks Liam’s jealous, while Liam insists he’s genuinely concerned about Steffy. Liam believes that Steffy’s doctor may be too interested in her to do his job. Ridge walks in and senses they’ve been arguing and wants to know what’s going on. Thomas sneers that Liam’s come by to tell them something really important – that he’s jealous of Steffy’s doctor. Liam argues that he couldn’t care less if Steffy gets involved with someone – he wants her to find happiness and romance – just not with the guy who’s responsible for her recovery right now. He’s concerned about crossing ethical lines and her recovery being compromised. Ridge suggests that Liam might be getting ahead of himself, and if Steffy feels uncomfortable, she’ll put the guy in his place. Ridge appreciates Liam coming to them with his concerns and he tells Liam he knows that he’ll always look out for Steffy. He also concurs that if the doctor thinks he has feelings for Steffy, it could be something to be concerned about. Thomas implies that Liam’s being an alarmist, to which Liam takes offense. Liam insists that if the doctor wants to take their relationship beyond professional, it’s not a good thing – it could color his judgment, which makes Steffy vulnerable. Thomas rants that this has been a challenging time for Steffy and she’s vulnerable both physically and emotionally – and Liam is to blame for the emotional because of the way he’s played Steffy and Hope against each other for years and years, back and forth, and if he had just chosen one of them years ago, they’d both be better off today because of it. Liam tells Thomas he’ll always love Steffy, which is why he’s actually concerned about her. Thomas yells at him to leave her alone then; let her go so she can finally find some happiness.

Meanwhile, over at the cliff house, Finn and Steffy have just shared a passionate kiss. Finn was pleasantly surprised and Steffy admits that she did it to open his eyes to how she feels about him, after he had told her she couldn’t be his patient anymore because of how he feels about her. They ask each other if either one regrets the kiss and then Finn suggests that they could easily end things right now and she could find another doctor if she feels awkward or uncomfortable as his patient. Steffy tells Finn she’s glad he’s her doctor and admires him so much – he puts his integrity first as her physician and willing to walk away to avoid conflict – that’s someone she wants in her life and the kind of doctor she needs. Finn shares that she’s the kind of person he wants in his life, but it’s her health that matters, not his feelings. He tells her he would never let his feelings get in the way of her care. Steffy reassures him that she has no reservations about him continuing to be her doctor. Finn tells her he’s ready to open up his world and think about something other than medicine. He’s grateful she’s going to continue being his patient and continue to see where this goes, getting to know her more, showing her who he is when he takes the stethoscope off. Steffy reveals that when he looked into her eyes that first day, she knew she was going to be okay and that she would fight to get better; she’s looking forward to spending more time with him, too – with or without the stethoscope.

Recap by Lori

At the cliff house, Steffy and Finn discuss how their kiss caught them both pleasantly by surprise. She would like to continue seeing him professionally if he’s okay with that. He just wants to make sure she understands why he can’t prescribe another refill and she tells him the only thing she’ll be asking him for is another kiss. She tells him she doesn’t need any more pills, then flashes to the “gift” of pills Vinny gave her and her hiding them when Finn arrived. Hope walks in and is surprised to see Finn there. Hope is bringing back Kelly. She asks how Steffy’s been doing and as Steffy talks about feeling better and optimistic she’s glancing over at Finn, which does not go unnoticed by Hope. Hope is figuring out that something’s going on between Steffy and Finn and before she leaves suggests that if Steffy needs any “alone” time, Kelly’s welcome to stay with her for as long as she wants. Steffy appreciates the offer but says she’s happy to have Kelly back home. Meanwhile, at Spencer Publications, Liam and Wyatt are bickering while reviewing a contract. Liam’s agitated because he’s worried about Steffy. He’s concerned that Finn’s interest in her is more than professional. Wyatt cautions Liam about walking into a minefield while he’s trying to get answers – he wants to make sure it’s not jealousy, as Ridge and Thomas believe it is – then he realizes Liam’s feeling guilt pangs for having to choose between Hope and Steffy. Hope walks in to give them an update on her visit with Steffy. She shares that Steffy appears to be in a good mood, not just because Kelly’s back home, but also because she thinks there’s a new man in her life. After Wyatt leaves for a meeting, Hope and Liam continue their conversation about the “new man” in Steffy’s life. They agree that something’s definitely going on between her and her doctor. Hope thinks it’s good thing because she’s finally moving on, but Liam’s concerned that because it’s her doctor it could cause problems, especially while Steffy’s still recovering. Hope reasons that he’s not going to be her doctor forever and they should be happy for her. Later, Liam has left for Steffy’s, and Wyatt returns from his meeting to find Hope still in the office. They talk about Liam’s concern about Steffy’s relationship with her doctor, and Hope says that while she understands where Liam’s coming from, she just wants to focus on the positive side that Steffy’s moving on.

After Hope leaves the cliff house, Finn apologizes to Steffy if his being there made things awkward for her. They talk about her recovery and Finn tells her she needs to be patient with herself, as some injuries take longer to heal than others. He’s there to help her in any way he can. Next, Thomas walks in and is surprised to see Finn making another house call, then he picks up on how Steffy and Finn are smiling at each other. He asks how Steffy’s doing and Finn says he believes Steffy’s going to make a full recovery. After Finn leaves, Thomas tells Steffy he had come by to find his wallet, then he asks if Finn comes by a lot for house calls. Steffy doesn’t want to get into any discussion about her relationship right now but, smiling coyly, admits that Finn has taken an interest in her. As Thomas is leaving, he tells her he’s happy she’s doing so well, but gives her a hard time about keeping the big photo of her and Liam on the wall as a constant reminder of her past. After looking in on Kelly, Steffy grimaces in pain and decides to take one of the pills Vinny gave her. A little later, Liam arrives. He knocks on the door but there’s no answer. He lets himself in and finds an unconscious Steffy lying on the couch.

At the cliff house, Steffy texts Vinny telling him the pills he gifted her are illegal. He texts back not to worry – they’re the same as her doctor’s, she shouldn’t be in pain, and it’ll be their secret. As she’s ready to text him another message, Finn walks in. She’s on edge about having the illicit drugs and hides them. Finn was concerned she was going to ask him to refill her prescription, but she tells him she doesn’t need one. She feels like she’s improving thanks to his great care, then he tells her she can no longer be his patient. She’s stunned, especially when she’s opened up to him so much. Finn appreciates their relationship and is very pleased with her progress. Steffy’s confused and doesn’t understand. Finn suggests that he can refer her to one of his colleagues, but when Steffy asks if that’s what he really wants – for her to see someone else in his practice – he reveals that he has feelings for her. He apologizes for putting her in an awkward position then wishes her the best. As he’s getting ready to leave, she stops him with a kiss.

At Forrester Creations, Liam walks into Ridge’s office, where Thomas is sitting at his desk. Liam’s worried about Steffy and asks how much Thomas knows about her doctor. Liam says he’s not questioning the doctor’s credentials – he thinks he’s interested in Steffy on a more personal level and it could be coloring his judgement. Liam knows he’s refilled her prescription already and thinks his interest goes beyond a professional concern. They argue back and forth. Thomas thinks Liam’s jealous while Liam thinks the doctor’s crossing a line. Thomas thinks Liam’s the one who’s crossed a line by seeing Steffy’s doctor and tells Liam he needs to drop it. Meanwhile, Carter and Zoe are in Katie’s office. They talk about how much they enjoyed their lunch date and getting to know each other. They recall her relationship with Thomas and Carter being the officiator at her wedding that didn’t happen. Zoe feels like she deserves the fallout from everything that happened, but Carter tells her she’s proven herself and is forgiven and it’s time that she forgives herself. She appreciates how much faith he has in her and how well he’s treated her. Carter thinks they have a lot more in common than they realize, both trying to learn from their pasts and be their authentic selves. They agree to continue seeing more of each other.

Recap by Lori

Steffy is at the cliff house and calls Finn. She asks if he could stop by her place, whenever he can fit her in. He says he can be there later this morning. Thomas arrives bearing gifts from Vinny – a package of Steffy’s favorite coffee and a giftwrapped box. He teases that Vinny’s got a huge crush on her, and she brushes it off saying not everybody has an angle, some people are just nice. Thomas takes a phone call as Steffy opens the box from Vinny. Inside is a stuffed teddy bear and, to her surprise, a bottle of pain pills, and a note. The note says “Thought your little munchkin would enjoy another friend. P.S. Heard you were out. No one should be in pain. Especially you.” As she holds the bottle of pills, she flashes back to the motorcycle accident. Steffy quickly puts everything back in the box. When Thomas asks what Vinny gave her, she only mentions the teddy bear. Thomas tells her that Vinny’s concerned about her and keeps saying how he wishes there was something he could do for her. Steffy replies that Vinny has done more than enough. Meanwhile, Liam stops by Finn’s office. He overheard Finn wrapping up his phone call with Steffy. Liam’s concerned about her and what’s to know if she’s alright. Liam tries to press Finn for information about Steffy’s condition and asks if he’s prescribed any more pills for her. Finn says he hasn’t because it would be irresponsible, because they’re addictive. Liam asks if it’s possible that Steffy’s taken too many, and Finn says he can’t discuss his patient with him, but he offers some advice instead. Finn tells Liam that Steffy really needs to spend time with her daughter; Kelly has a healing effect when they’re together. Liam’s a little taken aback that Finn knows his daughter’s name and that Steffy’s opened up about their family to him. Liam wants to know if Finn is interested in Steffy as more than just his patient and questions why he’d be making house calls. Finn assures Liam that he’s well aware that this is a difficult time in Steffy’s life and, as her doctor, he will do everything in his power to take good care of her.

At Forrester Creations, Carter stops by to visit Zoe, who is in Steffy’s office, dropping off promotional material for her approval. They talk about Steffy. They’re both concerned about her, but then Carter steers the conversation toward another woman he’s more interested in. As he drops hints about who it is, Zoe flirtatiously replies, pretending to not know who he’s referring to. Carter finally comes out and tells her that he’s interested in her. He’s never felt like this about any one and he wants to see more of her and get to know her more. She wants to see more of him, too. They both agree that something they have in common is they’ve been unlucky in love, but maybe that’s about to change.

Recap by Lori

At the Forrester mansion, Quinn is trying to sell Ridge on having a second wedding with Shauna. He wants to know why she’s encouraging it so much, especially since he and Shauna are already married and it’s not going to change anything. He suspects Quinn has an ulterior motive, but she assures him that this is what Shauna wants – she wants to remember her first wedding with a sober groom, a beautiful and memorable event shared with the entire family. Ridge says if this is going to be a family occasion, then Brooke should be there. Quinn wholeheartedly agrees. “It’ll help her accept the fact that the two of you are no longer married, that you’re no longer her husband and Shauna is your wife.” Ridge wants to hear all of this from Shauna. He acknowledges that first weddings are important, and Shauna deserves better. He’s going to talk to her about it, but he wants to take Brooke’s feelings into consideration because he doesn’t want to hurt her. He tells Quinn he’s going to think about this and then he leaves to go to the office. Quinn follows up with Shauna with another phone call – they need to have the second ceremony, which will alleviate Shauna’s guilt about Quinn coaching her into getting Carter to file the divorce papers and getting married while they were drunk. They need to have the second ceremony so that nobody will forget, especially Brooke.

At Spencer Publications, Bill explains to Justin and Wyatt why he’s been so unfocused on work lately – he’s caught between two women, Brooke and Katie. Although he told Brooke he loved her and believes they could be happy together, he’s got a family with Katie and he’s realizing he’s not ready to give that up. Meanwhile, over at Forrester Creations (in the CEO’s office), Katie accepts Brooke’s apology and then circles back to Brooke mentioning that Bill had showed up when she was trying to get through to Ridge. They conclude that Quinn must have called him – her mission was accomplished because it stopped the progress Brooke was making with Ridge. Katie believes that Brooke and Ridge will find their way back to each other, as they always do. Donna thinks that Katie and Bill are just as inevitable as Brooke and Ridge. Brooke knows she and Ridge have overcome many obstacles, but she’s concerned that he’s still vulnerable to Shauna – enough that he ran off and married her. Later, in the designers’ office, Bill visits a surprised Katie. He tells her he misses her and their life; he’s ruined everything and will never stop being sorry for that. Their conversation turns to their separation; Will misses the three of them together, but he’s a tough kid. Bill shares how much he regrets that he’s screwed things up for them more than once. Katie’s sorry that their trust was broken, and she can’t accept his apology and just move forward. She’s just not ready yet. Bill takes that as a sign of encouragement. He misses their family and the man that he is when he’s with her – Katie likes that guy, too. He vows to do whatever it takes to prove his way back to her. Ridge is in the CEO’s office, thinking about happy times with Brooke, when she walks in. Brooke is frustrated that every time they take one step forward, something happens. Ridge thinks the universe is trying to tell them something. Brooke believes it wasn’t a coincidence that Bill ended up showing up – Quinn is always trying to break them up. Ridge doesn’t want to talk about any of them, then he blurts out that Shauna wants to have another wedding ceremony at his dad’s house, so everyone can be there. Brooke is incredulous – she knows this is because her kissing Bill sent Ridge into Shauna’s arms – but they need to pick up the pieces and put their relationship back together. She tells Ridge she loves him and always will. Ridge loves her, too, but when he sees her standing in front of him, all he sees are Bill’s hands and lips all over her, and she told Bill she loved him, too. She tells Ridge it’s not the same, and the only reason Shauna wants this wedding ceremony is so she doesn’t lose him, and why would he want to marry her when he doesn’t even love her? Brooke vows that nobody is going to come between them – she believes they’re going to be reunited – and then pleads with Ridge not to go through with the wedding.

Recap by Lori

At Forrester Creations, in the designers’ office, Ridge is fuming about Bill barging in when he and Brooke were trying to reconcile. Eric wants to know how Brooke reacted, and Ridge says he doesn’t know because he didn’t stick around to find out. Eric understands how Ridge feels about Bill and tells him Brooke understands too. Eric urges Ridge not to let his hatred for Bill break his family apart. Eric tries reasoning with Ridge – if Brooke wanted to be with Bill she could be, and since Ridge is married to Shauna, there’s nothing keeping Brooke from moving on with her life. He tells him that he can see that Ridge loves Brooke, and he hates that Quinn can’t see it, too. Meanwhile, over at the Forrester mansion, Quinn is on a video call with Shauna, telling her Brooke needs to be dealt with, and they need to send Brooke a message she can’t ignore – a wedding. Shauna doesn’t see how another wedding is going to get Brooke out of the picture, but Quinn explains that if they have a wedding in front of all of their friends and family, it will send a direct message to Brooke that Ridge is no longer hers. Quinn knows Shauna regrets how things went down in Vegas and they recap their misdeed, but they made that marriage happen so they need to protect it – Shauna needs to tell Ridge that she wants the wedding; they’ll invite Brooke and give her a front-row seat. Ridge walks in just as Quinn ends the call with Shauna. Quinn shares that Shauna has a proposition for him and then she proceeds to tell him about the wedding plans. She asks if he would give Shauna this gift – another wedding so the whole world can see Mr. and Mrs. Ridge Forrester.

At Spencer Publications, Bill walks into his office and barks at Wyatt to get out of his chair. Wyatt says he was looking for something that Justin had left on the desk and Bill growls “My desk. My office. My world.” Wyatt is taken aback and asks what Bill’s problem is. Wyatt’s mother is his problem, Bill yells. Bill regrets answering his phone when Quinn called and dragged him into her plan to hurt Brooke. Bill explains that Quinn made it sound like Brooke was in trouble when she wasn’t; Quinn wasn’t just interfering in Brooke’s life, but his, too, and he will not let Quinn mess with his family. Wyatt suggests that Bill has to stop running to Brooke’s rescue if he doesn’t want to lose Katie. Bill confides that he’s confused about Brooke and Katie. He loves both women, but Katie has had the most positive and profound impact on him. Now over at Forrester Creations (in the CEO’s office), Donna and Brooke are getting ready to eat lunch, but Brooke is too upset to eat. Brooke tells her just when she felt like she was really getting through to Ridge, Quinn showed up and destroyed everything. Katie arrives and she and Brooke are both surprised to see each other. They realize Donna has set them up. Donna wants them to face each other and work through their issues. Brooke apologizes to Katie and Katie admits that if she didn’t believe her she would’ve left already. Brooke tells Katie that Bill loves her and if she can’t forgive her sister, at least give Bill another chance – for her son’s sake. Katie knows how drawn Bill is to Brooke, though, but Brooke tells her the only man she’ll ever love is Ridge. Katie says she believes Brooke and Ridge will eventually find their way back to each other because they always do. Brooke shares that they almost had a breakthrough today if it hadn’t been for Quinn’s interference. She reveals that when Bill showed up Ridge left and she could tell that Quinn was loving it. Brooke knows Quinn will do everything she can to keep her away from Ridge.

Recap by Lori

At Spencer Publications, Shauna greets Wyatt with a gift of his favorite homemade oatmeal raisin cookies. She’s thanking him for making her daughter happy. Shauna gets a phone call from Quinn but lets it go to voicemail.  Meanwhile, at the Forrester mansion, downstairs Brooke is urging Ridge to go home with her and forget his marriage to Shauna, while upstairs Quinn is quietly leaving a voicemail to someone (at this point, the viewers don’t know who) telling them to drop everything they’re doing and get over there and hurry – she says “It’s Brooke. I’m really worried.” Ridge says he was ready to annul his marriage to Shauna until he overheard Brooke tell Bill that she’ll always love him. Brooke admits that a part of her does love Bill, just like a part of Ridge will always love Shauna, but that doesn’t mean anything; she can’t stand the thought of him with Shauna. Just then, Quinn comes downstairs and tells Brooke she can’t stand the thought of her being in her house. Brooke tells Quinn to leave and they get into a verbal altercation while Ridge watches. Just as the conversation gets even more heated, Bill barges in and asks if Brooke is all right. Of course, Bill’s arrival doesn’t sit well with Ridge, who decides that he’s heard enough and walks out. Brooke wants to know why Bill is there, then surmises that Quinn is behind it. Bill’s confused because he got Quinn’s message telling him that Brooke needed help and it sounded urgent. Quinn is very pleased with herself – she knows Bill didn’t want a Brooke and Ridge reunion any more than she did. But Bill doesn’t want to be any part of her plan. After Bill leaves, Shauna walks in. She got Quinn’s message – about the paint color for her and Ridge’s room. Quinn doesn’t want to talk about paint colors, though. She wants to talk about Brooke’s visit, how Brooke was there pleading with Ridge to end his marriage to Shauna, and then Bill came over. Quinn knows that Brooke isn’t going to give up, but she knows “how to put the final nail in the coffin of Ridge and Brooke.”

At Forrester Creations, Eric and Katie are discussing Brooke and Ridge’s relationship. Katie believes that they should be and ultimately will be together and Eric agrees. Katie’s concerned that his support might cause problems for him at home with Quinn, since Ridge is married to Shauna, Quinn’s best friend. Eric thinks Quinn learned her lesson from uploading the video of Bill and Brooke, so if Ridge decides to reconcile with Brooke, Quinn won’t get in the way. Katie is getting ready to leave, and Eric asks her if she has lunch plans. She tells him she does – with Donna – and then tells Eric she thought that he and Donna made a sweet couple. Eric reminds Katie that he’s a happily married man, and even though she has every reason to be upset with Quinn, Quinn is his wife and he loves her. Katie understands what it’s like to be in a relationship with someone that most people don’t like, but then adds that she doesn’t trust Quinn and wouldn’t put it past her to do anything and everything to keep Brooke and Ridge apart. A little later, Ridge blasts past Eric into his (the designer’s) office. He’s upset and explains to Eric that Brooke tried to convince him to be with her but it failed because Bill walked in.

Recap by Lori

At the Forrester mansion, Eric has invited Brooke over to discuss her relationship with Ridge while Quinn isn’t home. Eric tells Brooke he’s been thinking about her and he’s not so certain that she should move on yet; he hasn’t given up on her and Ridge and doesn’t think she should either. Brooke still finds it so unbelievable that Ridge could have reacted so impulsively by running off to Vegas and marrying Shauna. She recounts how she had decided to move past it and how they were going to work things out, until Ridge overheard her talking to Bill, misconstruing what she said, and then running right back to Shauna. She asks Eric if Ridge is doing this to punish her or if he really has feelings for Shauna. Eric replies that only Ridge can answer, and then he encourages her to rise above the past, focus on the future and the love that she and Ridge have for each other. Brooke acknowledges that if Quinn heard what Eric was saying she’d be livid. Eric agrees – Quinn only wants what’s best for her friend. But Brooke says it’s more than that – Quinn loves to see her miserable – Eric just doesn’t see his wife the same way that she does. Eric, again, tells Brooke to keep fighting for what she wants with Ridge. Eric has left for the office but Brooke is still there when Ridge arrives. Brooke tells him that Eric wanted to see her and Ridge admits that his father has always been in their corner and so has her sister. Ridge asks how they always end up like this. Brooke blames Quinn and Shauna and believes there’s more to what happened the night Ridge married Shauna – it’s just a feeling she has. Meanwhile, at Shauna’s apartment, Shauna and Quinn are sorting through her things, preparing for her move to the Forrester estate. Shauna gushes that she’s still blown away, being married to “the one and only Ridge Forrester”. The women relate about coming from humble circumstances, working late nights at the casino, to now both being married to Forrester men. Shauna still can’t believe that this is her life now – she feels so lucky – but then she starts having guilt pangs that it was all built on a lie and a secret. Quinn scolds Shauna and tells her to stop thinking about what happened in Vegas – it’s too late to turn back now. But Shauna can’t put it out of her mind – and what if Eric and Brooke find out? Quinn insists that no one is ever going to know their secret. Back at the Forrester mansion, Brooke takes responsibility for what she did and tells Ridge that him being with Shauna is wrong – the woman that he loves and will always love is standing in front of him, and it isn’t Shauna. Quinn has returned home and is upstairs, eavesdropping. She calls Shauna and tells her to get over to the Forrester mansion right now, while Brooke urges Ridge to join her in moving past all of this and forget about everything that happened. She asks him to take her hand and go home together.

At Forrester Creations, Ridge and Zoe are doing a fitting. He tells her that after everything that happened with Thomas, he’s glad she’s talking to Carter. Just as they wrap up their conversation, Katie interrupts to go over some marketing ideas for the new fall campaign. Ridge quickly changes the topic to their respective relationships, being betrayed by the same people. Katie tells him that she’s just trying to live her life – that’s all she can do for her son and herself. She adds that she was happy with Bill, living together as a family only for him to ruin it again. She declares that she’s done with both Bill and Brooke for all of the indignity, humiliation and embarrassment. Katie admits that she’s in shock about everything – Brooke and Bill and now Ridge is married to Shauna now… She muses that Ridge usually thinks things through – is he sure this isn’t a midlife crisis? She wants him to be sure that he’s making the right decision because she know that despite the kiss with Bill, the only man Brooke really wants is Ridge. Katie defends her sister, then asks Ridge if he’s really going to honor the drunken marriage that he doesn’t even remember. A little later, Eric arrives and finds Katie in his office. He’s surprised to see her and asks how she’s doing. Their conversation quickly turns to Brooke and Ridge and they both realize they agree that Ridge is the only man Brooke will ever truly want.
