This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (November 3 – 7, 2014): Liam decides he will go to Amsterdam to meet Ivy. Wyatt is under pressure from the women in his life. Rick takes the CEO position. Taylor comes to town?
Hope, Liam, Wyatt and Ivy
Wyatt is under pressure from his mother and his wife. Quinn wants to be in their lives but Hope wants nothing to do with Quinn. Who will Wyatt stand by in the end?
An excited Wyatt tells Liam that it is a big day for them – getting their first look at their bambino or bambina he states as Hope giggles.
Hope finally has an ultrasound and it looks like there really is a baby in there…Quinn has found a way to be present for the ultrasound of her first grandchild….she dons a disguise. Clearly Hope finds out because Hope thinks its time to take out a restraining order on an overbearing Grandma – and since Brooke is in Italy, that grandma is Quinn…Quinn, tells Hope that she needs to prove herself to Hope and that one day Hope will forgive her and allow Quinn a place in this baby’s life. Quinn promises her son that she will be good – from here on out. Haven’t we heard that oh a couple of dozen time already????
Ivy tells Liam that Hope will have to spend the rest of her life looking over her shoulder just waiting for Quinn to snap. A worried Liam tells Hope that he knows Quinn is her mother and law and all, but Hope needs to keep her as far away as possible…
Hope and Ivy discuss the launch for Ivy’s jewelry line in Amsterdam. It isn’t long before Hope tells Ivy to take it slow with Liam. When Ivy is scheduled to go on a business trip to Amsterdam she invites Liam. Liam decides to meet her there. By the end of the week, there is much excitement as Hope and Wyatt, Ivy and Liam head off on a great big Dutch adventure. Amsterdam here they come.
On the jet, presumably as they are preparing to land, Ivy tells everyone on board (Hope, Wyatt and Liam) that she’s getting pretty excited about Amsterdam. Wyatt says he’s very excited about the shoot also. Let’s make this better than Paris he suggests.
In Amsterdam, Hope tells Ivy that modelling isn’t for everyone and that no one will mind if she wants to pull out of modelling her own jewelry. Ivy takes it as an afront and asks Hope if she doesn’t think Ivy can do it. Liam steps in to smooth the waters between the competitive women….
Ridge, Caroline and Rick (and Maya)
Make it happen, Maya tells Rick who doesn’t want the CEO top job any longer. Sign the contract she encourages and take control. Thanks to Maya’s cajoling, Rick agrees to become CEO of Forrester Creations – even though he really was Eric’s second choice.
Maya goads Caroline that Maya is now the woman on Rick’s arm. She will be loyal, Maya notes. (Does anyone remember Maya kissing Carter on the night of her Room 8 web series launch? Rick didn’t turn up so Maya and Carter got tipsy and were all over each other. Maya got up the next morning and went to Rick’s place and slept with him. Sounds an awful lot like Caroline’s indiscretion to me…)
Rick is CEO and they will learn to respect that Rick says. At a meeting he tells his team that things are not going to be easy around here. A far as Rick is concerned, they have all betrayed him.
Rick’s first order of business is to make some staffing changes – notably relating to Ridge and Caroline’s positions at Forrester Creations. Rick puts Caroline and Ridge in their place. (the basement perhaps?)
Caroline is determined that her blossoming feelings for Ridge and a couple of steamy kisses aren’t going to jeopardize her marriage. She tells Hope that she and Ridge didn’t fall in love – they just shared a couple of kisses. She is determined to stay married and make it up to Rick. Caroline may have the ammunition she needs to derail Maya’s bee line for Rick when Carter fills Caroline in on Maya’s agenda. Maya wants Rick and the Forrester lifestyle for herself and will stop at little to win Rick over. Maya encourages Rick to take action. (How did Rick suddenly turn into Maya’s puppet?)
Is Maya sensing Rick uncertainty? She asks Carter to annul Rick and Caroline’s marriage asap then asks Rick if he wants a woman who he can’t trust or someone who supports him.
Eric and John
John returns to LA all the way from Australia. John isn’t letting Eric back out of his deal now…
Deacon and Quinn
Deacon is adamant that Quinn is not to interfere with Hope and Ivy’s impending trip to Amsterdam. Quinn is still putting pressure on Wyatt to help her. Will Wyatt stand by his wife or his mother?
Quinn tells Deacon that she is not going to miss anything in her grand child’s life, including the first sonogram. Scrubs, gloves and a surgical mask and Quinn is ready to be there…
As Hope, Wyatt, Liam and Ivy fly to Amsterdam, Quinn tells (her son?) that the last string between Hope and Liam needs to be cut…Later, Deacon asks Quinn if he can imagine the four of them on a plane together and headed to Amsterdam
Katie and Bill
Katie and Bill remember Bill’s near death experience in Aspen twelve months ago. Bill thinks Katie hasn’t told him everything about Ridge.
Taylor and Ali
Taylor pays a visit to Forrester Creations in Loa Angeles. She checks in on Aly concerned that Aly still not only sees dead people but talks to them (okay – just Darla). Oliver comes to Ali’s assistance.
