Ridge Will Focus On His Family
Ridge and Brooke’s conversation turns to Ridge’s personal life. He’s had a lot of changes recently. Thanks to Katie, he was cornered into telling Thomas that Douglas was Thomas’ son. Thomas, Ridge and Caroline came to an agreement that they should keep the secret to avoid Douglas being raised in the shadow of a family scandal. But once Bill and Brooke learned the truth, Thomas as least understood too many people already knew. Finally, Thomas and Caroline convinced Ridge to tell the truth. Which he did.
And it cost him his job as CEO of Forrester Creations. Eric once again was forced into making a new CEO selection. This time, thanks to some advice from Quinn, his new mystery woman, Eric decided to step back into the role himself.Talking to Brooke, Ridge supposes that Eric stepping in to the CEO role will actually turn out to be a good thing. It will allow him to focus on his family. Despite Thomas now being acknowledged as Douglas’ father, Ridge will still have a role raising the boy as he is married to Douglas’ mother.
But that brings up a whole lot of other concerns. Ridge has noticed that the Thomas and Caroline now share a bond that will never go away and will only deepen as they raise their son together. Ridge tells Brooke that the way Caroline looks at Thomas is the way she used to look at him. Brooke will be surprised to hear this, and finds it even more shocking that Ridge thinks Caroline may fall for Thomas.
