Last time on The Bold and the Beautiful
, Brooke had just told Ridge about the rape. We open today with Ridge comforting Brooke.
Stephanie and Eric are getting a photo shoot together with dresses that Eric designed. Ashley comes in, but they are still waiting for Ridge to arrive.
Nick and Jacqueline are going over some sketches that a designer has brought in. Nick things they suck, but the designer pushes the blame on Brooke, who has been MIA from the office for days.
We return from the opening credits with Rick and Phoebe still on the couch and still clothed. Rick pulls away and says that he has to make sure that Phoebe is ready for them to continue (onto the sex, naturally). He knows her so well that he senses something is going on with her. Phoebe admits that she had been sending him mixed signals, but she doesn't want to let him down anymore. She wants to tell Rick something, but we cut back to Nick and Jacqueline.
Jacqueline has heard that Eric is putting out his best design in years. Nick agrees that the Marones can't compete with the Forresters on the runway.
Eric and Stephanie are signing papers with a bank representative who tells them that this is the last time he'll work with them until they pay off their debt for their expensive new boutiques. Eric assures him that his new line will succeed.
Brooke lets slip to Ridge about her attacker. Ridge now knows that the rapist is Andy, pictured in the paper with Brooke at Cafe Russe. Brooke begs him not to call the police because Andy would see to it that she wouldn't get her children back. Ridge looks like he's out for blood.
Now we are back with Rick and Phoebe. Phoebe says that in order for them to be happy, they have to be on the same page. She does love him, but she's not ready to give it up quite so easily with him yet. Rick sighs. Oh, those crazy kids on The Bold and the Beautiful
, they are so virtuous.
Ridge is furious that the attacker blackmailed Brooke with her kids. He promises that he won't let her lose her kids, and he won't let Stephanie interfere either. He hugs her and gets ready to hunt Andy down, starting at the Cafe Russe since Andy's a regular there.
Ridge asks the bartender at the Cafe Russe if he knows Andy. Apparently, Andy forgot his cell phone there, and will be by later that evening to pick it up.
Nick and Jacqueline plot to outwit the Forresters, since they can't outdesign them.
Eric and Stephanie continue to argue about Brooke. Stephanie, ever the broken record, says that Brooke was out gallivanting with Andy, mentioning him by name. But Ashley asks how she knows his name, since it wasn't mentioned in the paper. Stephanie tries to cover, but Ashley and Eric look suspicious. Looks like things are going to get exciting this week on The Bold and the Beautiful
