Hope, Liam, Wyatt and Ivy
The future of Wyatt’s marriage doesn’t look good.
Hope has a lasting effect on Liam…
Ridge, Caroline and Rick; Rick, Caroline and Maya
With the success of their last collaboration, Eric suggests that Ridge and Caroline again work together on the next collection. All eyes turn towards Rick to see what his reaction is to his wife once again working closely with Ridge. Rick surprises everyone by being okay with it. Of course they don’t know that Rick is working a plan…Later Rick gloats to maya that he went so far as to insist Ridge and Caroline still work together.
Caroline, also is unaware to Rick’s true objective; to gain irrevocable control of the company and dump Caroline for Maya.
Caroline tells Ridge that she is proud of her husband. He is more committed to their marriage than ever, Caroline says. Caroline, thinking that Rick was genuine in his desire to save their marriage, tries to resurrect all aspects of their marriage – including their sex life. She is suspicious of Rick when he tries to avoid intimacy with his wife.
Meanwhile Rick is getting his intimacy else where – with Mistress Maya. has he set her up in her own apartment, Steffy’s former loft! After enjoying a bubble bath with Maya Rick wonders how Caroline could betray their marriage like this – it seems Rick isn’t quite as over Caroline as he’s telling Maya!
Rick and Maya put the next phase of their plan in motion. They need to get the law on their side in their efforts to take over Forrester Creations. Eric is impressed with Rick’s new attitude at work. Rick asks his dad to show him by signing papers that will give Rick the control he so desperately desires. Will Eric do it? Rick justifies the move by telling his father that he wants to rung Forrester Creations, with Caroline, into the future. That is very hard to do with Ridge plotting to undermine him.
Ivy witnessesRick leaving Maya’s apartment .(?) Rick tries to defend his behavior while also warning Ivy not to blab. What will Ivy do?
Meanwhile Maya blabs. She finds someone to confide in about what is going on. – Ricks buddy Othello.
Rick and Maya put on quite a show. Maya yells at Rick that she has committed herself to Forrester Creations. Its not bad enough that Rick dumped her? she asks emotionally. You need to fire me too? Rick tells Maya that this isn’t easy for him either. But this seems like its all for show – to help convince Eric that Rick is doing the right thing by the company and his wife, Caroline.
Ivy witnesses Rick leaving Maya’s apartment .(?) Rick tries to defend his behavior while also warning Ivy not to blab. What will Ivy do? Ivy confronts Rick about what she saw. Ivy tells Rick that the kiss she saw was not him ending things with Maya. Meanwhile Caroline is telling Aly that having Ricks trust back again means so much to her. Rick isnisted that She and Ridge work together – surely that is him trusting Caroline…
Meanwhile Rick tells someone that every relationship he’s been in he’s been lied to – except for Maya – she’s the only one who has been honest…
Bill, Deacon and Quinn
With Quinn standing on the edge of the balcony at her loft Bill has entered and tells her to jump. Deacon arrives in time to save Quinn from herself and Bill…
Bill tells Quinn that she has much to make up for. She is responsible for many misdeeds towards his family.
Quinn tells Deacon that she would understand if he wanted to walk away form her and have nothing to do with her. Quinn does find support from someone however. Deacon is there to help Quinn when she is at her lowest.
Ridge, Bill and Katie
Bill wants Katie and his family back! Bill tells Katie that he wants a chance to make things right. But Katie just wants to know where this is coming from. Bill reminds Katie that they were great together.
Is Katie weary enough of her red string and Ridge’s roving eye (and lips) to take Bill up on his offer? Maybe learning about Ridge and Caroline working together again will sway her decision?
Katie asks Ridge if he loves Caroline. Katie tells Ridge with tears in her eyes that she doesn’t ever want to regret loving him. Katie ends her relationship with Ridge.
