This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (January 19 – 23, 2015): Ridge wants Caroline for himself; Brooke returns from Italy to one surprise after another; Liam and Ivy take the next step…
Friday 23 January, 2015 sees The Bold and the Beautiful airing a reflective documentary about some of the memorable moments over its 7000 episodes…including actor interviews and never before seen auditions…
Hope, Liam, Wyatt and Ivy
Liam defends Ivy and Caroline against Rick‘s new attitude. Liam gets physical with Rick as a shocked Ivy and Caroline watch. Ivy and Liam take the next step in their relationship. Presumably this means they make love for the first time…conveniently, just before Steffy reappears in Los Angeles…
After standing up to Rick on behalf of Caroline and vy, Liam tells Ivy that he meant it in Amsterdam and he means it now – he loves her,
Ridge, Caroline and Rick; Rick, Caroline and Maya
Bill stops by the Forrester mansion. She’s the only one home, Maya tells him. Bill has a message for Maya. She isn’t home. She’s just the resident squatter. He gives Maya 24 hours to say her goodbyes before he uses her past to “remove” her. Bill tells Maya that as a general rule he gets what he wants. A confident Maya stands up to him and tells Bill that she’s not going anywhere.
Ridge believes Caroline has given Rick enough chances. Ridge also has repeatedly warned Rick to take Caroline back before he loses her forever. Now we know what Ridge meant. Ridge wasn’t going to sit back forever! Ridge is now telling Caroline to end her marriage to Rick. Ridge then explains with two compelling reasons why he thinks he and Caroline should be together instead!
When Caroline turns up to a meeting with Rick without Ridge, Caroline tells Rick that Ridge can’t make it and that she can handle it. Rick is furious at Ridge’s snub of his authority and tells Caroline he disagrees.
An angry Ivy asks Rick how he can be so judgmental. he’s living with another woman. Liam defends his cousin, Caroline and Ivy against Rick’s obnoxious behavior. You don’t get to be a bully, just because you’re hurt, or just because you can, Liam tells him unimpressed.
Liam is not pleased to hear about Rickie-boy’s treatment of Caroline, or Ivy. Rick tells Ivy to stay out of it as Caroline shakes her head. Caroline is a little more resigned to their situation. Rick is the boss there is nothing they can do about it.
After a run in with Liam over Ivy and Caroline, Rick hits the bottle and pulls out the gun her found in his father’s bedroom. Maya later tells Rick that he is coming home to a celebration tonight. Still drinking Rick tells (Someone) that honestly, he doesn’t trust himself.- with Stephanie’s gun. And rightly so, seeing Ridge and Caroline kissing, Rick aims and fires – three times. Who did Rick shoot?
Meanwhile, Rick and Ridge are on the same wavelength. Rick has divorce papers drawn up to legally end his marriage to Caroline. Maya is pleased. Does she feel the same way about her little sister turning up in town?
Pam retrieves Stephanie’s portrait fromt he garage where Rick put it. If Rick has no use for the woman who build this company then Pam will keep her at her desk.
Brooke returns from Italy. She has words with Deacon and Quinn about Hope and Wyatt. Brooke also finds the landscape has changed during her absence. Aware that Rick and Caroline were having marriage difficulties Brooke is surprised to learn why.
I’m sure Brooke will have a few words for Ridge about going after his brother’s wife – especially since Ridge was so judgmental about Brooke’s own dalliance with her sister’s husband, when he returned to Lost Angeles from Paris!
Brooke will no doubt support Rick, but will she support Maya as the Stephanie replacement?
Bill and Katie
One of the reasons Brooke took the job of sorting out the Milan office was to give Bill and Katie to explore the option of getting back together without Brooke peering over their shoulders. With Katie and Bill seemingly back on track, Katie is nervous when Brooke returns. Will Brooke take Bill away from her again?
Meanwhile Bill makes some changes at Spencer Publications putting his loved ones in positions of power. Katie? Caroline? Or both? Katie admits that she wanted to be more than what he (Ridge?) needed her to be. Looks like Katie is back on the job?
Bill promotes Liam to President and with a leadership hole in the Vice President position he asks Katie to come back.
Katie tells Liam that she guesses Bill wanted her back in the company. A smiling Liam tells her he think its more than that. Liam thinks Bill wants Katie back in his life. later with Bill, Katie is prompted to note that Bill Spencer lives and learns – who would have thought?
Does one of Bill’s changes allow Liam to throw his weight around at Forrester Creations in defense of Ivy and Caroline? Bill does own 12.5% of Forrester Creations…
Deacon and Quinn
Deacon and Quinn cop an earful from Brooke when she arrives back in town from Italy. Quinn, with Deacon by her side tells Brooke that she doesn’t like how Hope is handling this. Brooke puts Quinn straight. If it weren’t for Quinn coming over to Brooke’s house and confronting Hope the way she did, none of this would be happening. Its all your fault an angry Brooke tells Quinn.
