Rick makes an announcement that sends everyone at Forrester Creations into shock. With irrevocable control his for the new year, Rick begins using his power. He yells at Ridge that given his position of power she should tread lightly. You said you forgave me, Caroline yells at her husband. And you said you’d be faithful, Rick throws back in her face. Caroline undersatands that he’s angry and she deserves that, but she doesn’t deserve what he just did to her.
Rick tells Caroline that he can forgive anything except for that (her dalliance with Ridge?). Rick tells Caroline that he won’t be there to mend her broken heart when she finds out differently.
Caroline, despite being duped by Rick about their reconciliation, still loves him and continues to fight to keep her marriage together. Rick’s attitude, however, shows he wants to be with Maya.

Rick tells Caroline that there marriage is over. he can never trust her again. Caroline tells Ridge that he is every woman’s unattainable dream., You’re so handsome she says, but the admissions are also a “goodbye” or sorts with Caroline and Ridge accepting they can’t pursue the attractions between them. Caroline confides in her cousin, Liam. There was such an electricity between us she states, describing the attractions between her and Ridge…Liam understands. He says sometimes you know you are jeopardizing the most important thing in you life, but yet somehow you don’t stop til its done.
Rick tells Eric that Maya would never do to him what Caroline did.
Rick moves Maya into the Forrester Mansion. Ivy asks her if her Uncle Eric knows what she is doing. Maya must give Ivy some attitude because Ivy tells her not to overlook the facts here. She and Aly are Forrester’s and she is still a wannabe, Ivy warns gold digging Maya. Maya tells Ivy that she is living her dream and Ivy can be part of it. laer when Rick is home he tells Maya that she has worked hard for this dream.
Maya tells Ivy that Rick finally has the power and position he deserves. Ridge, however, believes that Maya is just a pawn in rick’s power games, but she doesn’t realize it yet…
With Rick’s plot now exposed, does Rick move Maya into the Forrester Mansion? He presents Maya with an extravagant gift. Not only have they moved into the mansion, Eric’s belongings have been put into storage as Rick and Maya prepare to “lead” the Forrester family as well! Rick and Maya move into Eric’s study and the master bedroom. Rick has a portrait of Maya replace the portrait of Stephanie in the living room….
Rick faces fallout from the decision to replace Stephanie’s portrait (Maya had the decency to suggest they remove it). Pam was surprised Rick knew the picture was on the wall. Ally and Ivy are clearly also not impressed. Yes, Rick tells Pam in a clear statement of his new power and position in the family. He put it there, Rick says as if it were a natural thing to do. Later, a power mad Rick tells Maya he frankly doesn’t care who disapproves.
When Caroline wants to talk, Rick allows her to come to the house with the sold purpose of letting her see Maya’s portrait. Caroline is initially shocked but stays on message: All you have to do is break up with Maya, take that thing down she says pointing at the portrait of Maya, and come home.
Later, at the office, Liam and Ivy talk to Rick. Liam tells rick that he’s still married those feelings don’t just go away overnight. Later, based on the conversation Liam tells IVy atht there may be more to Maya and Rick’s relationship than Ivy realizes and unfortunately Caroline realizes.
