While Zende works with a camera at Forrester Creations he tells Sasha he has this “itch”.  He can’t really explain it.

 Episode Summary:

On the Plane to Australia

Liam awakes on the flight to Australia.  So does Ivy. He can’t believe they took off with him in the bathroom.  The onboard wifi isn’t working so he still can’t contact Steffy.

Liam thinks he may have royally screwed up this satiation.  Ivy says it’s not unreasonable for him to have thought what he did.  Steffy may not have caused this accident, but she was there during her last accident, and Aly’s. Liam says Steffy deserves better from him.  He’s always telling her not to go off half cocked and that’s precisely what he just did. They are engaged for God’s sake.  Ivy says maybe they shouldn’t be.  Maybe they should put things on hold and see if they really belong toghther.

Liam says he doesn’t need to do that.  He just needs to reach out to Steffy.

They land in Sydney.  Ivy hands him his phone.  He needs to let her know he’s on the other side of the world.

Steffy Wonders if She’s Still engaged

Steffy wakes after falling asleep on the sofa.  She calls out for Liam.  He isn’t there.  She checks her phone for messages.

Wyatt arrives as Steffy has a cup of coffee. He asks Steffy what she is going to do.  Steffy says she needs to find Liam.  They need to talk. She asks if Liam has contacted him, but Wyatt says the last time he saw Liam was at the hospital the day before.

Steffy worries Liam is so angry he’s gone radio silent and that perhaps he doesn’t want to be her boyfriend anymore.  What if Liam doesn’t want to clear things up. But Steffy says that ultimately they need to talk and she isn’t giving up on their relationship.

Wyatt tells her then he’s a first class idiot and he doesn’t deserve her.  Steffy says Wyatt always knows the right thing to say. Steffy hopes that when Ivy recovers she gets on a plane to the other side of the world and doesn’t return.

Her phone rings its Liam.  Come home she says.  He’ can’t.  Where are you Steffy asks Liam.  He’s in Sydney, Australia he tells her.  With Ivy, Liam adds.  Liam tries to explain but Steffy gets cranky and hangs up after telling him that explains everything.

She tells Wyatt that her fiancé is halfway around the world with his ex girlfriend who is still in love with him.  It can only mean one thing Steffy says as Wyatt hugs her.

Rick and Maya

It’s Over…

Rick tells Caroline he can’t just put this behind him.  Why did it have to be Ridge?  We can put this behind us.  We can go to Paris or New York.  I’m’ trying to run a company, Rick says Caroline says she’s trying to save a marriage.  What is more important to you, Caroline asks.

I wanted to reach out to you.  I didn’t like to see you suffer, but every time I tried to get close I would think about ….what I needed from you most was loyalty and you broke that pact.  You broke it.

You made a mistake with the wrong man – you betrayed me.  I tried to let it slide.

Do you love her?  You don’t do you.  She’s a rebound who has been targeting you from the start.  Caroline realizes that rick hasn’t told Maya he loves her. He did want a family with her.  Does he still?  Maybe, but he has to forget it.  Its over Rick says as he takes off his ring.  He could never trust her again.  Goodbye he tells his wife.  Caroline picks up the ring and leaves.  Rick cries.  Alone outside Caroline whispers it’s not over.

Eric comes to see his son.  Why he wants to know.  Tricking him and playing him for a fool and angry Eric accuses. Rick apologizes.  Eric is very disappointed.  Rick promises to make him proud. Nut he could never run a company with a woman he doesn’t trust or be married to her.  You trust Maya?  Yes, Rick says.  She would never do what Caroline did to me.

Ridge and Eric

Part of him wants to tell her to leave Rick and come with her and they will find a place a be happy.  But he won’t.  But he won’t. Her commitment to Erick is extraordinary.

You are every woman’s unattainable dream.  You are so handsome and so confident.  I could so easily…but that is what got me into this mess.  It started with me, it’s her fault.  She still believes she and Rick can have what they planned and dreamed about.  Which might make her a romantic fool Caroline notes.
