Has Quinn Convinced Brooke to Protect Eric?
While Eric took a call from Los Angeles (Rick) Quinn took the opportunity to slip out of their room and see what progress Ridge was making with Brooke. When Quinn arrived it was clear, Brooke was determined not only to stop her and Ridge’s wedding for the following day, but fill Eric in on what his wife and son had been up to behind their backs.
But Quinn made an impassioned plea. She and Ridge were foolish, but they know who they want to be with. Ridge wants to be with Brooke, and Quinn wants to be with Eric. Quinn then begged Brooke not to tell Eric. Please don’t hurt him, Quinn begs on behalf of her husband.It is enough to give Brooke pause about her course of action. She did believe that Eric deserved to know what his wife had been up to, but does she want to see Eric in the same kind of pain she is? Brooke admits that Eric is very special to her, very important (he is the father of two of her children). Brooke admits the last thing she would ever want to do is hurt Eric. A desperate Quinn watches as Brooke comes to this conclusion.
Brooke Tells Ridge His Wandering Eye Is Why She Can’t Marry Him
Brooke may have a soft spot for Eric which may work to Quinn’s advantage, but Brooke isn’t feeling so forgiving with Ridge. Alone again, Brooke tells Ridge that he makes it seem like she is in the wrong; that she isn’t enough to hang onto him. But after 30 years of this kind of nonsense, Brooke thinks the problem lays elsewhere.
She tells Ridge the problem is him; him with the wandering eye, always looking for something better. And that is why she can’t marry him tomorrow, Brooke lays out for Ridge.

Brooke Won’t Marry Ridge
Eric deserves to know what is happening Brooke says. There is nothing to tell anymore. Quinn tells her they were kissing goodbye. They were toying with each other, foolishly. There is no need to cause Eric any pain. Quinn begs Brooke not to tell Eric.
Ridge asks what telling Eric will accomplish. A lot Brooke says. He will kick Quinn to the curb. Isn’t that what you want? Brooke asks. Ridge admits he did but take away the woman he adores who adores him. That will only hurt Eric.
Brooke says she doesn’t want to take anything away from Eric. That mans is so special and important to her. The last thing she wants to do is hurt him. And she won’t say anything on the proviso that Quinn and Ridge keep their hands off each other. But she sees or hears of one more betrayal, Eric will be the first to know. Quinn thanks Brooke and leaves.
Where does that leave us, Ridge wants to know. Maybe we can still get married tomorrow. Think of RJ. Brooke tells him he’s being manipulative bringing up their son. That isn’t who he was thinking of when he was kissing Quinn.
Ridge suggests they go to Fiji to get married. Brooke tells him he just doesn’t get how much he hurt her; how much he betrayed her. Marriage and a life with him isn’t going to happen Brooke tells Ridge.
Ridge says it was just one kiss. Brooke tells him to kiss any woman he wants; that’s the life she wants for him. That is obviously how he wants it. RJ wanted them to be happy, and she is not happy. Brooke will explain it to RJ. Ridge betrayed RJ, Brooke and Eric. It is all gone now, because of Quinn. Brooke hopes it was worth it.
Brooke tells him he loves the thrill of the chase, he doesn’t want Quinn in the end. And then he comes back to her. But not this time. Brooke wonders if he does want her this time. Brooke doesn’t want to marry him; she just didn’t think it would end this way. She has loved him for so many years. But this isn’t destiny because destiny wouldn’t hurt this much or be this hard. Marrying him is only going to bring her more pain. Brooke tells Ridge goodbye and leaves the room.
Quinn Feels Guilty as Eric Is Romantic
On the phone, Eric tells Rick that Brooke is likely just having pre-wedding jitters and tomorrow she will marry as planned.
Quinn returns to find Eric setting up a romantic evening – outback style. He offers her champagne and tequila her two favorite drinks. Quinn accepts a glass of Champagne. Its that kind of night.
Eric admits he told Rick about Brooke pre-wedding flutters. Eric and Quinn sip champagne. Eric wonder is Ridge and Brooke will overcome this. Eric realizes that Quinn really cares for her son and wants him and Brooke to marry. Eric hopes they make it, but it has nothing to do with them.
Eric asks the prettiest girl in the room to dance. He tells her its has been an amazing trip. Once ina lifetime Quinn agrees.
Steffy and Liam Enjoy Their Wedding Night
Liam asks his bride if there are any more surprises for him as they sip champagne. Steffy has something planned for the wedding night alright. Liam asks her never to stop surprising her. Today was just what he was hoping for. Love family and fun. He thanks his bride for putting it all together.
Steffy asks him to never stop looking at her like this; like he sees beauty in her that she never knew was there. He sees beauty humor and intelligence. He will look at her this way for the rest of his life.
Everything about today was perfect, Liam tells Steffy. They kiss and make love.

Katie gets a glass of water. He doesn’t mean to accuse her but she wasn’t herself earlier. She turned on a dime. Maybe its her medication Katie suggests.
