This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (February 2 -6, 2015): Brooke plans to break up Ridge and Caroline while everyone else plots to remove Rick from power
Liam, Ivy….and Steffy!
Liam tells Steffy that if they sit back and do nothing and let Rick continue down this path, a year from now there won’t be a company. Steffy and Liam work together on their plan to oust Rick from his position of power at Forrester Creations, by using the shares that Bill, Steffy and Thomas own. Steffy needs to see her father first.
Ivy walks in on Liam and Steffy hugging. Realizing its Steffy the duo Ivy becomes uncomfortable by what she is seeing. Ivy is surprised that Liam hasn’t told Steffy something.
At Forrester Creations Steffy tells Caroline that she and her father together is disgusting. Steffy tells Caroline they are the same age. Ridge is her dad. Is Steffy forgetting that she took up with a much older man also?
Steffy wants something in return for her help. What is it? When Ivy sees the duo working closely together she becomes upset by what she is seeing.
Steffy also sees her father who she is not pleased with, if the whispers at International are true. You were married to her aunt before she was even born, Steffy reminds her dad. Steffy tells Ridge that what he and Caroline are doing isn’t technically incest but its enough to turn the average person’s stomach. (Ridge making out with Bridget was worse…those two were raised to believe they were half brother and sister…)
Meanwhile Liam warns his father that Steffy won’t help them takeover Forrester Creations if she believes that they are looking to sideline her father (Ridge). Bill wants to know if his son’s sudden desire to takeover Forrester Creations is driven by Hope.
After going to Forrester Creations and seeing for herself what is going on, and confronting her father and Caroline about their “relationship”, Steffy returns to Spencer Publications to see Liam and Bill. She tells them what she thinks about Ridge and Caroline. Steffy in her anger admits she sympathizes with the bastard (Rick) because if she walked in on her father making out with Caroline she’d shoot too. Later Steffy tells Liam and Wyatt that Caroline, being raised by two mothers, really shouldn’t have “daddy” issues. Love it Steffy!!!
Wyatt believes Quinn is the reason that he was unable to save his marriage to Hope. He treats Quinn accordingly. Quinn is fortunate to have Deacon by her side to help her through he son’s disapproval of her. Deacon tells Wyatt that unless they all find a way to forgive each other right here right now, they won’t be able to move on.
Professionally, things aren’t looking good for Wyatt either when Rick uses his position of security to bring Wyatt into line also. Wyatt tells Rick that he doesn’t own him, Forrester Creations doesn’t own him. The sooner Rick gets that straight the better off they will all be. Later while talking to his dad and Liam, Liam tells them that the sooner they hit Rick where it hurts the most – taking his company away from him, there is no way Rick can continue to abuse the women we love afterwards. Wyatt joins forces with those trying to remove Rick.
Ridge, Caroline and Rick; Rick, Caroline and Maya
Brooke tells Ridge that he and Caroline aren’t going to be together.
Caroline is confronted by Brooke about her relationship with Ridge. Brooke tells Caroline that she isn’t going to have a relationship with Ridge Brooke tells Caroline confidently that if she wanted Ridge back, she could have him with a snap of her fingers. Is Brooke just trying to persuade/pressure Caroline back into her marriage or does she actually believe that? Caroline stands up to Brooke , however, and tells her that she isn’t going to let Brooke tell her that she and Ridge can’t be together.
Meanwhile, despite his mother’s insistence that he return to his marriage, Rick tells Maya that she is the woman he wants to spend his life with.
Caroline tells Aly that Steffy is back in town after Steffy confronted her about her relationship with Steffy’s dad. Steffy was not supportive of the relationship. Steffy follows up by telling her dad that he and Caroline – it has to stop.
Rick’s behavior continues to worry everyone – including his newly returned mom, who usually stands by her son’s side, no matter what. Will Rick do as his mother tells him to? Will he reunite with Caroline – Would Caroline take him back?
Rick has noting nice to say to Wyatt either when he returns – probably out of loyalty to his sister, Hope, so Wyatt joins forces with Team Oust Rick.
Maya makes plans to hook Nicole up with a man of her own.
Brooke has returned from Italy to find that two men who proposed to her before he departure have moved on. Bill is headed back to his ex-wife, Katie and Deacon has shacked up with Quinn.
She is also surprised to learn about Ridge’s part in Caroline and Rick’s marriage break down. Brooke blames Ridge and herself for Rick’s recent behavior. Their on again off again relationship damaged Rick…
Brooke trades some heated words with Caroline on that score. Brooke finds it necessary to tell Caroline that she could have Ridge back in a New York minute – if that was what she wanted. Is it? Brooke puts into motion a plan to end Ridge and Caroline’s relationship. Is Brooke doing that to support her son? Or does Brooke want Ridge back?
Meanwhile, however, Brooke does worry about Rick’s recent behavior. He needs to let go of his anger…
Brooke tries to reason with Ridge. Her son needs someone more appropriate (than Maya?) and Caroline his wife, has been that, Brooke tells Ridge
Brooke confides in Deacon. She’s going to teach Caroline Spencer a lesson. She’s going to put Caroline in her place. Over a drink she tells Deacon that she and Ridge will definitely be getting back together…
Bill and Katie
Despite Brooke’s return, Bill’s attention is still firmly focused on putting his family back together. Katie gets a view of Bill’s softer side which certainly won’t hurt Bill’s efforts. Since telling Brooke last week that he wants his family back and ending any hope of a Brooke and Bill reconciliation, Bill reaffirms to Katie, that despite Brooke’s return, that his future is with her. He puts his money where his mouth is and Bill proposes to Katie.
Brooke tells Katie that she will never interfere in her marriage again – that is a sister’s promise – one she intends to keep this time…
Deacon and Quinn
Deacon is there for Quinn as she is still feeling the fallout from her part in Hope’s baby loss and Wyatt’s subsequent marriage breakdown.

The Bold and the Beautiful Coming and Goings Summary:
Will The Bold and the Beautiful be hit by cast cuts brought about by an actor pay rise and only limited funds? B&B already has a small roster of characters so perhaps some appearances could just become fewer and farther between. Which characters would you like to see lose a bit of air time?
With Linsey Godfrey recovering from surgery on both ankles after being hit by a car, we could be seeing less of Caroline on our screens for a bit.
The Bold and the Beautiful Looking Forward – February Sweeps:
Look for surprising romance and love on Valentine’s Day for the Spencer’s, Logan’s and Forrester’s.
The future of Forrester takes an unexpected turn…
Katie teams up with her ex Bill against Forrester. Bill realizes he will never have Brooke and wants Katie back. Reunited, Bill and Katie become the new power couple of The Bold and the Beautiful.
Bill Bell’s statement that Hope will remain a central character and on the canvas is being interpreted as The Bold and the Beautiful recasting Hope after Kim Matula’s departure. How long will the character of Hope be rested? Will Hope return from Italy with Brooke? Brooke’s return had Brooke stating that Hope wouldn’t be back anytime soon.
Katherine Kelly Lang is due to return to our screens towards the end of January. Look for Brooke back on our screens January 22, 2014…
Ridge isn’t finished vying for the CEO job. The battle for control at Forrester Creations isn’t over.
Rick may find that his feelings mess up his grand plan…
Could Rick impregnate both Caroline AND Maya at the same time? Not likely since he hasn’t slept with Caroline!….Yet.
Maya has some family arrive in town. The Bold and the Beautiful has reportedly cast Reign Edwards in the role of Nicole Avant – Maya’s hitherto unheard of younger sister. Apparently scheming and manipulating runs through the family genes. Look for Nicole to debut in January.
Another casting update for January screen time – Despite saying recently that she would not be returning to The Bold and the Beautiful Jacqueline MacInnes Woods (Steffy) is reportedly filming a handful of episodes also set to air in January…
