This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (August 10 – 14, 2015): Will Ivy lose her job? Thomas and Steffy keep her secret, there is a hitch at Rick and Maya’s wedding…
Liam and Ivy, Steffy and Wyatt
Steffy has to confide in someone. She chooses her brother. Steffy tells Thomas what happened on the night that Aly died. She tells him he’s the only person who knows about it. Thomas tells his sister that she cannot hold herself responsible for something that couldn’t be foreseen. Thomas tells Steffy that they are the only two who know what actually happened and that they are not going to say anything to anyone. But Steffy tells Thomas that Ivy implied that Steffy was responsible for Aly’s death.
Ivy who seems to have spent the night at Wyatt’s house tells him that when she gives herself to him, there will be no turning back. Ivy tells Wyatt that even if the Forrester’s don’t realize it right now – they kind of owe her.
Later Ivy tells Thomas that his sister isn’t a saint. Thomas swears to Steffy that he will do whatever it takes to protect Steffy. Steffy becomes angry about Ivy’s accusations. She tells Thomas that Ivy either backs off, or she’s going after Ivy with everything she’s got. Steffy threatens Ivy’s job! Thomas says that what Aly did was premeditated, what Steffy did was self defense…Ivy shows Thomas the video…
Steffy understands there is one threat to that secret. Is that why Steffy broaches changing Ivy’s employment status at Forrester Creations with Liam? Will Liam stand up for his former girlfriend? Or is he totally under Steffy’s spell (thumb)?
Liam’s loyalty doesn’t really matter, because Wyatt is looking after Ivy’s interested. Ivy continues to confide in Wyatt. The video Ivy took for the night Aly died clearly shows that Steffy is responsible for Aly’s death. Steffy murdered Aly. Its murder, Ivy tells Wyatt, its the only way to look at it.
While Steffy and Liam are discussing terminating Ivy’s employment, she decides she wants to take on a more prominent role at Forrester Creations. Wyatt encourages Ivy to become the new face of Forrester Creations. Ivy decides its a good idea and tells Wyatt? Thomas? that she wants to be right there next to Maya as the new face of Forrester Creations.
But Steffy is also up for the gig. And Thomas doesn’t support her! Presumably he’s backing Ivy otherwise she will expose the video of Steffy striking Aly down with a tire iron. Though no one understands Thomas not backing his sister, in a way he’s protecting her – just like he promised Steffy he would.
Brooke and Eric
Brooke and Eric wonder how sincere Maya’s father, Julius is about trying to accept his daughter’s life.
Rick and Maya
Bill apologizes to Rick and Maya.
Maya’s wedding day brings tears when she over hears a conversation between her parents. It is clear Maya has her mother’s love and support, but the conversation highlights the same cannot be said for her father. Maya had thought she was on the way to having a family back, but the overheard conversation hurts all over again.
Maya’s wedding day is threatened when Maya feels she must confront one of her guests. So much for trying to accept me Maya tells her father tearfully as she’s about to marry.
Julius’ true feeelings come out. He tells his wife not to call Maya’s wedding a celebration. Vivienne feels differently, however. She tells her husband to look at the life Maya has and asks how they could have wanted anything more for a child of theirs. Julius just wants to get through the ceremony. That will bring him joy.
Nicole asks Maya if she’s calling off the wedding…Maya confronts her father first – in front of all her guests. Julius is taken aback and tells his daughter to show some respect. He’s her father. As they get into Julius’ true feelings about Maya, he tells her that a dog can’t be a cat and a boy can’t be a girl. He tells her never to say that he didn’t pray for her…
Family events make Bridget to stay in LA for a while.
Nicole and Zende
Ridge, Caroline and Thomas
Ridge confides in Caroline about Thomas not backing Steffy for a modelling contract as the Face of Forrester (presumably he’s backing Ivy to prevent her fro exposing the video she has of Steffy and Aly on the night Aly died.) Caroline isn’t so surprised. Ridge did rip up Thomas’ design, give Steffy the Presidency of Forrester and now Ridge is also offering her a modeling contract. Caroline suggests that Thomas feels slighted.
Ridge says they have always been competitive – its sibling rivalry. But Ridge maintains that Thomas not endorsing Steffy means there is something going on that he’s not aware of…
