The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers and Teasers: December 29, 2014 -January 2, 2015

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (December 29 2014 – January 2, 2015):  Carter tells Eric not to sign the papers,  Ridge also learns what Rick is up to, Quinn can’t help herself, New Years sees Bill with Katie and Liam with Ivy…

The Bold and the Beautiful will air a rerun on New Year’s Day.

Hope, Liam, Wyatt and Ivy

Ivy tells Liam that she isn’t sure what Rick is up to, but she doesn’t like it.  Ivy believes Rick’s behavior is more about lashing out over the hurt that Caroline caused him, rather than any real feelings for Maya. Ivy wants to believe it isn’t too late for Rick and Caroline – that when people make stupid choices they still have the ability to turn things around and fix things for themselves and the people they are hurting…

Ivy confides in Liam that she isn’t sure how long she can keep Rick’s secret affair with Maya to herself.

Liam and Ivy spend their first New Years Eve together as a couple in love.  Wyatt is offered help – from his mother!

Ridge, Caroline and Rick; Rick, Caroline and Maya

Rick continues to press Eric to sign the papers giving Rick irrevocable control of Forrester Creations.  Rick wants (Eric or Caroline?)to show him that hey care as much about Rick as they do Ridge…With Ivy knowing about Rick seeing Maya behind Caroline’s back Rick is all to aware that his scheme could blow up in his face at any time.  Maya urges rick to stick to the plan.  Since Ridge lost his shot at being CEO because of his lack on integrity in his relationship with Caroline, Rick is probably assuming that Eric would rip control away from Rick if he found out that Rick had been lying about his intentions since reuniting with Caroline.

Maya gloats to Caroline that her glass is half full and the water is rising every minute.  Maya is aware Rick is pushing Eric to sign over irrevocable control of Forrester creations to Rick before Eric heads off on a lecture tour with brother, John.

Caroline admits to Ridge that she’s beginning to feel like Rick’s forgiveness of her and wanting to save their marriage is an act.  When he gets home all he says is he’s too tired or too exhausted. She just wants to hold her husband again… Caroline’s suspicions are, of course correct, as Rick is at the same time pushing his dad to put his belief in him in writing….sign over control of Forrester Creations…

Caroline tells Ridge its New Year’s Eve.  What better night is there for her and Rick to reconnect?  Its a night where you put the past to rest and resolve to be better in the year ahead.  Meanwhile at Maya’s apartment, she tells Rick that Caroline can have him for tonight but only because she will have Rick for the rest of her life.

Maya tells Othello on the Sky lounge at Forrester Creations that Rick can’t play Caroline’s happy husband forever.

Meanwhile Eric is getting legal advice on the papers – from Forrester Creations legal counsel, Carter.  Carter advises Eric not to sign the documents putting Eric in an uncomfortable position.  Carter warns Eric that if he signs the papers he is giving all the power to Rick.  As far as Eric knows Rick has delivered exactly what Eric asked of him.  And requesting to be free of Ridge trying to undermine Ricks’ efforts with his own power play is a reasonable request of a CEO.  But are the papers the way to go about it?

Eric of course doesn’t know what Rick is planning behind his back.  Eric feels like he should support Rick and Caroline’s future as the new Forrester power couple…

Pam tells someone – likely Maya since Caroline is shocked at her arrival at a Forrester meeting – that if she wasn’t invited to a meeting it doesn’t concern her.  But an overconfident Maya seems to think everything at Forrester Creations concerns her! Ivy talks to Othello and gets the idea that there is a plan n the works.  She tells Othello that if Maya nd Rick are up to something, that if something bad is going to happen today he needs to tell Ivy what it is…

Carter warns his best buddy, Ridge that Eric is seriously contemplating giving Rick what he wants- irrevocable control of Forrester Creations. Carter gives Ridge the papers to look over.  Ridge notes that Rick is making his move… Can Ridge stand by and see any future opportunity to be CEO disappear?  Unlikely… But Ridge is dealing with more than just his career challenges.  He also confides in Carter about his feelings for Caroline and his plan moving forward…will Ridge try to seduce Caroline away from Rick?  Or will he put a muzzle on his feelings for his “brother’s” wife.

Is it too late to put the brakes on Rick’s scheme?  It looks like it.  In the meeting, Rick tells Ridge who is obviously trying to protest his father signing over control to Rick, that it is too late – its already been signed…Does Rick mean the papers giving him control or something else???  With a bit of luck Eric had Carter put in a loophole “out” clause…

Bill and Katie

New Years Eve sees Katie and Bill ringing in the 2015 together.  The evening leads to a passionate New Years Kiss

Deacon and Quinn

Quinn wants to help Wyatt get Hope back.  Deacon advises against it, but Quinn just can’t help herself….
