Rick and Maya
Maya thinks she wants this so bad she’s lost perspective. Maya worries that Nicole feels pressured into becoming their surrogate. It’s not them putting her under pressure but herself.

Zende wonders about them as a couple. What would it do to them? Nicole is taken aback by some of the things Zende is saying. He thinks they could be amazing. Doesn’t she want to find out? . He tells her he doesn’t’ always say everything he thinks but he thinks about her all the time. Maybe you should she says. They kiss.
Zende tells Nicole she shouldn’t think of doing this for Maya as returning a favor. Being a surrogate for Nicole will take a year out of her life.

Liam Comes to Ivy’s Defense
Bill finds what Steffy has done to Ivy hilarious and laughs out long and loud. Steffy is pleased that he finds it amusing and appreciates her creativity. Katie notes they all know how creative Steffy can be. Liam does not. Katie is surprised that Liam gave his approval, but President, Steffy says she doesn’t need approval from her VP or anyone else for a new hire. Liam reminds Steffy that Ivy isn’t really a new hire and she’s a Forrester. Steffy still thinks she gave Ivy a good opportunity and thought Liam would agree. Bill is surprised by Liam’s defense of Ivy and wonders if he still has feelings for her.
Bill realizes that Liam is upset with hm. Again. Liam admits he doesn’t’ like the snickering about Ivy behind her back just because she isn’t comfortable stripping on command. She is concerned about her reputation and family. Wouldn’t you be Liam asks his father. Bill mulls it over then starts to get his gear off. Steffy finds it amusing. Katie pulls him away and they leave.
As Steffy and Liam tidy up she asks if he’s unhappy with her. Liam admits to having misgivings. He thinks that Steffy is making a mistake; one she has made before and is concerned about the consequences. Steffy wants to know what is so terrible about what she has done, and is so blind to.
He explains that not everyone feels about their bodies the way she does. And Steffy needs to accommodate those feelings about privacy and sexual decorum and modesty. It’s painful to people to have those feelings disregarded, Liam explains. You mean Ivy, Steffy asks. Liam looks at her and tells Steffy; And Aly.
Liam tells Steffy he can’t stand by and watch someone be bullied. Ivy doesn’t want to do it. Steffy defends her choice when Liam suggests Steffy models the bedroom line. Steffy says she’s the President and she can’t be doing press conferences and having everyone wonder what color bra she is wearing. Liam suggests Maya but Steffy says she’s the Couture lead. Steffy tells Liam that Ivy was not an irresponsible choice. Except that she doesn’t want to do it Liam reminds Steffy. Steffy tells him that Ivy said she would do anything. This is anything and the fact that she’s enjoying it is only poetic justice, Steffy tells Liam.
Lingerie Model – Ivy
As Wyatt and Ivy eat their pizza and Ivy bossed Wyatt around, he notes that she is becoming less inhibited about walking around in her underwear. Ivy reminds him that parading around in lingerie in front of her boyfriend is one thing, but doing it for a whole bunch of people is entirely another
Wyatt advises Ivy not to let Steffy get to her. That is what Steffy wants. Ivy should turn it around on Steffy and tell her that she would be thrilled to model the bedroom line. They role play Ivy telling Steffy that she is going to be so glad walking around the building in her underwear.
Later as they are cuddling, after making love, Wyatt admits to Ivy that she sometimes gets a look on her face and he wonders if she’s thinking of Liam. Ivy tells him that she wonders about how silly she has been in the past and that she has everything she wants right now. The look on her face when its unseen from Wyatt tells another story, however…

The Future of Forrester Creations
We are the future for Forrester – You know that don’t you, Ridge tells Caroline. My dad wants to know from you who you think should be the future of Forrester. Ridge tells Caroline that after the last few weeks and the intimacy and connection we have – it has to be us. Caroline runs from the room.
Caroline runs into Rick’s office where he is just finishing with Ivy. Rick can tell something is bothering Caroline and asks her if everything is alright. You seem on edge Rick says. Caroline covers and says she had to block someone (on social media). Rick has to leave to deal with a report.
Rick is gone and Caroline collapses into a chair. Ivy asks what is going on. Caroline tells ivy that designing together was an absolute dream come true. Caroline admits is difficult with Ridge and Rick no getting along. Ivy sympathizes over Caroline being trapped in the middle.
Ridge Pitches Eric to Become CEO
While Rick and Ivy discuss budget, Eric get a text from Ridge to meet Ridge in Eric’s office.
Eric arrives to find Ridge working on a design. Ridge tells Eric he wants someone to run Forrester who has the perfect balance of business and design. Rick doesn’t have what it takes to run Forrester.
Rick is president of the company and if he names Rick successor he will respect it. Ridge says he will try. Eric gets upset because Ridge calls Rick a kid. You left us. You walked out. We had no idea of if you’re coming back.
Ridge asks how this works. Rick went to Paris and he was a success and he went to Paris and he runs away. Well I’m back now, Ridge says. But you can’t draw. It’s coming back Ridge tells Eric and he shows him.
But under pressure Ridge can’t perform. He will draw on his own again and begs his father not to make a decision based on that. Even if he can’t draw, he knows design. They agree that Caroline has a huge future before them. He looks at them and sees Stephanie and him in their early years. This is about loyalty and taking this company into the future – not blood. With Caroline by his side Rick can take this company into the future. Eric confirms that Caroline is that important.
Ridge agrees. So lets do this. Make me CEO and let me mould her into the designer we know she can be. Eric notes that he put him in charge before. He didn’t treat people well. Ridge says he’s different now. Eric wants a CEO here who is going to respect me. A tyrant in the past or Rick who has respected him. There is something wonderful about having a power couple at the helm. We need a team at the helm. Ridge tries to pitch him and Caroline as that team. She will never have the type of commitment to ridge she has to Rick. Eric makes it clear he hasn’t decided yet, but he needs Ridge to understand why Rick is such a contender.

With Caroline by his side there’s nothing he can’t do Rick tells his father.
Caroline Fantasizes About Ridge
Ridge comes into the office where Caroline is now alone. Sometimes he reminds her so much of her. Its crazy that after all this time he’s close to Caroline Spencer again. Caroline says she’s committed to her marriage. She loves her husband and it will never happen again – the kiss.
Does Rick fulfill her – her passion for design ridge asks. Caroline tries to defend Rick, but Ridge says it’s all numbers for him. They are artists. Don’t deny what they have found between them. It’s not too late. But this is our life. No regrets – live life Ridge tells Caroline as he kisses her again.
Ridge touches Caroline’s arms startling her out of a fantasy…What you doing Ridge asks.
