B&B Recap: Thursday, June 9, 2011

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "The Bold and the Beautiful" Episode Recap — Thursday, June 9, 2011.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…

At Forrester Creations, Brooke cryptically discussed something with her lawyer over the phone.

Ridge and Taylor got ready to go to a meeting Brooke set up. They wondered what it was going to be about. Ridge noted that Eric still doesn't know about Brooke & Thomas sleeping together. Taylor wondered if he'd find out today. "I hope not" said Ridge. Taylor told Ridge that their son needs help. Ridge admitted he hasn't been there for him lately because he felt betrayed by both him and Brooke. "The longer you stay silent, the only choice he has is to feel that void with guilt and sooner or later this could really overwhelm him, I really think you need to reach out to him," Taylor pleaded.

Thomas and Stephanie talked in Ridge's office. Stephanie told Thomas she didn't want him at the meeting. Thomas voiced his concerns to her about Hope starting to catch on to his lie. Stephanie encouraged him to keep the lie going and reminded him of all he has to gain from this. "Tom, your family is about to be put back together again and you are right here positioned to take control of this company." Stephanie left Thomas sitting in Ridge's chair, which she said he looked good in.

Brooke stopped by shortly after and told Thomas they needed to talk. She asked him if he remembered anything else from the island. "Have you?" Thomas said. "No. And I'm beginning to think I won't," she replied. Brooke told him that she's not calling him a liar, but wondered if what he thought happened could've been part of another hallucination. "I know what you're asking me to say, Brooke, but I just can't." Thomas said. Brooke said he was right and then talk shifted over to the meeting. Brooke said that she wanted him to be there. Thomas said Stephanie doesn't. "She doesn't know what I'm going to do," replied Brooke. Thomas wondered what that was. "The only thing I have left to do," Brooke told him. She then told Thomas that she doesn't like the person she's become.

Dayzee and Marcus met up with each other. Marcus asked how things were going between her and Thomas. Dayzee told him that lately Thomas has changed and things just haven't been the same since shortly after he got back from the island. "I just think somethings happened and he's really dealing with something heavy." she said. Marcus listened as she voiced her concerns over Thomas's behavior lately. Dayzee told him not to tell Thomas they were talking about him.

At the Jackie M offices, Owen and Jackie were all over each other as usual. Stephanie stopped by and asked if they knew where Nick was. Just then, Nick came into the room and greeted Stephanie. "Uh oh don't tell me you need a job?" Nick said jokingly. "Actually, I'm here looking for a little insurance" Stephanie replied. Owen and Jackie left the room. "You come here for insurance so if history repeats itself, you're here to talk to me about Brooke," said Nick. Stephanie told him that Brooke and Ridge's marriage was over. Nick couldn't believe it. Stephanie told Nick that Brooke is going to be alone and that she'll need a friend. "Can't you be that friend for her?" she told him. Nick demanded to know what happened between Ridge and Brooke. Stephanie said that wasn't important. "The point is she's available," she said. After that, Stephanie left to go to Brooke's meeting.

Eric joined Thomas and Brooke in Ridge's office. Ridge and Taylor arrived soon after. Taylor was surprised to see Thomas there. Ridge told Brooke that he doesn't think Thomas should be involved in this. "I think you'll want to hear what I have to say. You all wil," Brooke said. Stephanie arrived and stated "Now that were all here, let the crocodile tears flow."

        (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "The Bold and the Beautiful" Episode Recap – Friday, March 25, 2011.

        IT HAPPENED TODAY…

        Bill was hopeful that he and Katie could work through this. He explained to her that he did everything to protect his son. "My son was laying there in a coma and I knew that even if he woke up, Amber would come after him again." he said. Katie argued that she could have helped him rethink his decision if he had come to her. Bill said that he couldn't tell her. "But you can talk to Steffy?" Katie replied, adding "You've turned to this woman who would like nothing better than to bring me down. To bring us down. You know our history, and you have let her worm her way back into our lives, why Bill?!" She then left the room.

        Later, Bill sat alone at home with a drink in his hand. Steffy came by and realized Bill was upset. She wondered why Katie couldn't understand Bill's reasonings for doing what he did and said Katie just doesn't understand him. Bill defended Katie and said he didn't want to hear Steffy say something negative about his wife ever again. Steffy told Bill that they get each other and then asked if there was anything she could do to help him. "You can stop by your dads house on your way home, and if my wife's there, tell her that I'm waiting for her." Bill said. "And if she doesn't show up?" Steffy replied. Bill said he'd wait for her as long as it takes.

        As Katie drove away, crying, she got a call from Nick. He could hear her crying from the other side and could tell she was upset. He asked if she was ok and she said she wasn't. He asked if there was anything he could do and Katie said she needed a place to stay. Nick invited her to the Marlin. When she arrived, she made herself at home and said she told Donna to come over. Donna arrived and provided her sister with support. Katie wondered if maybe Bill really was to dangerous for her like her family warned her before they got married. Donna asked what Bill did. Katie told her the story about how Bill bought Amber that house on top of a cliff to try and push her to her death. Donna was shocked and didn't know what to say. Bill called Katie. He tried to get her to come home but she said she wouldn't be. Crying, Katie told Bill that she loved him, but needs time to herself right now.

        Amber expressed great thanks to Hope and Oliver for joining her and Liam for dinner. During dinner, Hope lost her appetite when Amber went on and on about her ultrasound. She bolted out of the room and Liam followed behind her. Once outside, Liam hugged Hope. Hope said she couldn't be around Amber anymore. Liam kissed her. He then tried to convince her to leave with him. Disheveled and frustrated, Hope told him that she didn't believe they'd be able to make things work. She pulled away from Liam and ran away to Oliver's car, as Amber watched through her window in satisfaction.

          (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "The Bold and the Beautiful" Episode Recap – Thursday, March 24, 2011.

          IT HAPPENED TODAY…

          Katie asked Bill if he really tried to kill Amber. Steffy tried to intervene but Katie told her to shut up. Katie wondered if there was more to what happened than what Bill told her and Liam before. Bill said that there was. Katie couldn't believe it. Steffy intervened once again, trying to explain that he didn't try to kill her, but Katie just got frustrated and asked why she was even still here. Bill told Steffy that he wanted to speak to his wife in private. Steffy left the room. Katie asked Bill to tell her the real truth about what happened on the cliff. Bill let Katie know that he was just trying to protect his son. He had every intention of trying to push Amber off the cliff, but he didn't. Katie couldn't understand why he would take such drastic measures and reminded him that if fate hadn't took over, he would've killed his own grandson. Bill once again said that he did it all for his son and family. Katie asked him if he considered her family and thought once about her or their relationship when he was about to push her off the cliff. She was at a loss thinking about how he planned to murder a woman on the property they had just bought. Katie and Bill couldn't come to piece with the matter and Katie wondered how Steffy was involved. Bill explained that Steffy witnessed the whole thing and ended up saving Amber. "That doesn't answer the question 'what was she doing at our house in the first place?'. How often have you been meeting with your little confidant because I'm feeling a little left out." Katie said angrily. Bill told Katie that he loved her and that he was sorry. "I lose control, Katie. I wasn't thinking." he said. "You weren't thinking about me, you weren't thinking about our life together, and you sure as hell weren't thinking about that innocent baby that Amber is carrying, because like it or not, Bill, that kid is your family to." Katie lamented. Bill went on to say that he was just overwhelmed by an "incredibly powerful" paternal instinct to protect his son. "I was consumed by it" he said. Katie said she wanted to know every last detail of what happened that day and most of all why he confided in Steffy. Bill explained to her again that Steffy was there that day and saved Amber. Katie wanted to know why she was even there in the first place but Bill had no clear answer. Katie couldn't understand how Bill could try to justify what he did to Amber just because she's a bad person. She started crying and Bill vowed and hoped that they'd be able to work past it.

          With her mothers help, Amber got busy making dinner and setting up things for the dinner party she had planned for later. Oliver called Amber from Forrester and said he and Hope couldn't make it and that they could do it another time. Amber tried to convince him to come by telling him that Hope needed to be at the party tonight so that she could realize the reality of things: Liam belongs with Amber (because she's having "his" child) and she belongs with Oliver. Oliver reluctantly agreed to come to the party just as Hope walked in.

          Oliver asked Hope out to dinner. Hope wondered where they were going. Oliver told her they were going to a dinner party at Ambers. Hope thought he was kidding. Oliver pleaded with her to come and to make things run smoothly between the four of them. Hope agreed to attend the party and vowed to make Oliver see that she can handle herself.

          Liam arrived at Ambers house. Tawny left. Liam was annoyed with Amber when she told him what she really had planned and told her it wasn't a good idea. Amber said that she just wanted to make things more friendly. Oliver and Hope arrived. Amber poured everyone drinks and they all sat in the living room. Clear tension was felt between Amber and Hope. Liam explained to Hope that he had no idea Amber had this planned and that he had just found out minutes before they arrived. Amber played it off like he was kidding. Amber then brought up picking baby names, which fiercely annoyed Hope.

          Thomas showed a patron the new Taboo line. After, Steffy arrived in his office and told him she knew about their fathers memo. "That kiss on the plane back from Paris? You said it wasn't a big deal but obviously it was." she said. Thomas told her she didn't know what she was talking about. Steffy called him out on what he and Brooke did at the press conference and then asked if he was that in love with Brooke or if it was just lust. "Are you that in love with Bill Spencer or is that just lust?" Thomas shot back. Steffy said that Katie is all wrong for Bill and that she has no idea who he really is. "She thinks she understands him but she's deluding herself." she said, also adding "Katie just wants a husband who is straitlaced, plays by the rules, always buttoned up. Well, I'm sorry. That's not Bill Spencer. Never will be. She's in denial.". Steffy went on to say that she admires Bill's dark side and that Katie won't be able to look at her husband the same again after tonight.

            IT HAPPENED TODAY…

            Taylor told Ridge that Stephanie is right about the whole situation. Ridge said there's nothing he can do except throw up his hands. Taylor coughed out more jabs about Brooke and Thomas defying him and asked Ridge if he's starting to notice the pattern they've got going on. Ridge asked himself how everything got so out of control and said he thought things were under control. Taylor told him that that's just how Thomas and Brooke wanted him to think. "This isn't just about the kiss or the act of defiance, it's bigger than that…it's a behavior pattern. I've watched Brooke do this for as many years as I can think back," said Taylor. Ridge told her that Brooke's concerned she and Stephanie never forget anything. Taylor told Ridge that she doesn't think he's forgotten one thing either and that he's overlooked it long enough. "Right now, it's staring you in the face. And all the wishing in the world won't make it go away." she said. Ridge told Taylor that she warned him of the Taboo line right from the start and that he should've listened. Taylor soaked that in and asked Ridge if Brooke has finally crossed the line with him. "It doesn't matter how much Brooke promises you that she isn't going to do this again–she's not going to end up in another scandal–it will happen. You know Ridge, I don't want to see you get hurt. You have to decide if you have finally had enough." Taylor lamented.

            Tawny showed up at Amber's. Amber wondered why she was back. Tawny told her that she had to see her after she got hurt. Amber wasn't interested and tried to get her to leave. Tawny wouldn't budge and said she was here to stay. She encouraged Amber to embrace living the luxury life she's currently got handed to her. Amber said she was waiting for Liam to come by the beach house. After hearing that, dollar signs took over Tawny's eyes as she reamed with excitement. Amber begged Tawny to leave, explaining that Liam told her that he wanted to see her and that it sounded important. Tawny agreed to leave but told Amber to call her the minute Liam left. She told Amber to stick to their plan. "Our plan is working perfectly, in fact so perfectly that we have to step it up a little bit. Hope and Liam split up so now Liam is a single man with needs…" Tawny said. Amber said she's pregnant and there's no way she'd try to do that. Tawny reminded Amber that no one knows that the child she's carrying is Oliver's and that she will be raising it as a Spencer, giving it "the best future" she could possibly give it. Just then, Liam knocked on the door. Amber let him in and asked if he remembered her mother. Tawny flirted with Liam ("My, aren't you a nice, juicy slice of beefcake.") and then Amber hastily kicked her out. After, Liam apologized to Amber about her fall and wanted to make sure the baby was ok. Amber assured him that everything was ok. She noted how lonely she felt these days. Liam then wanted to make sure she had a doctor for the baby and Amber said she did. Liam asked if there was anything he could do for her, mentioning how she said she felt lonely. Amber got excited and said that if he really meant it, she wouldn't mind more of his company around the house. Liam said that he could stop by every now and then. Amber tried to persuade him to move in with her since they are having a child together and all. Liam just wasn't sure. Amber told him that he could have some time to think about it. She told him to go back to work and think about it, and then come back to her house later for dinner. Liam agreed with the plan and left. After, Tawny came back in threw the back porch and Amber told her that she was throwing a dinner party for her and Liam…and Hope and Oliver. "And I'll go on and on about the baby. And before dessert, Hope will realize she doesn't have a future with Liam and Liam will realize he has to move on with me." she declared.

            Bill and Katie shared a hot kiss in his office. After, Katie told Bill she had to go to a meeting to discuss remodeling their new house. She expressed how much she's longed for a house along the beach and she wanted to make the most of it. She reminisced about Storm taking her to Point Dume when she was little and said maybe someday they could do the same for their children. She then went on to say that Amber's going to have to find some other place to live soon.

            Later, Steffy visited Bill in his office after getting a call that he wanted to see her. She flirted with him the minute she entered and also teased him a little bit about wanting to kill Amber. Bill told Steffy that he called her over because he had a question for her, and one he couldn't ask his wife. "What's going on with your brother and Brooke?" he asked. Steffy said it was just business. Bill thought otherwise and then showed her the Taboo cancellation memo that Jarrett gave him earlier. Steffy was surprised to see it and said she had no idea this had happened. She said she was under the impression that the line was being expanded. "Now, I wonder what would happen to make your father father kill one of the most successful lines in the history of Forrester creations?" said Bill. He insinuated that Thomas and Brooke have been getting "freaky" and that's why Ridge cancelled the line. Steffy said nothing of that sort happened and she refused to believe that the line was really cancelled. Bill suggested that Ridge cancelled the line but Thomas and Brooke ignored him. Steffy said that they wouldn't do that. Bill asked if he could quote her on that. Steffy said there's no way he's running with this. "Not yet. But something tells me there is a story behind that memo." he said. Steffy changed the subject and talked about their attraction to each other. She said she went half way around the world to try and get away from him. Just then, Katie arrived at the door and listened in as Steffy told Bill that no one has excited her the way he does and that no one understands him the way she does. Bill said she doesn't know as much as she thinks. Steffy said that she knew his secret, subtlety bringing up what he did to Amber, asking him if he would have killed Amber if he had the chance. This caused Bill to flashback to what he did and voice that he had to do something. "She was on the edge of that cliff. I wanted her dead." he said. Just then, Katie finally walked in. "You wanted her dead. You were gonna kill Amber."

              (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "The Bold and the Beautiful" Episode Recap – Tuesday, March 22, 2011.

              IT HAPPENED TODAY…

              Thomas came back to Ridge's office after he left. Brooke told Thomas she thinks it's a good thing that Ridge will be alone on his trip. Hope and Oliver showed up and said they were looking all over for them and that they had been waiting in the studio. "Thomas wanted photos to send with the release about a womens line for Taboo" said Hope. Brooke, who had no idea about the plans, told them that they could do the shoot in the office. Hope and Oliver left to get the equipment. Thomas asked Brooke if she was ok about all of this. "We told the press Taboo was on, that's how it stands," said Brooke.

              Ridge was on his plane alone when Taylor came in, surprised to see him, explaining that she thought it was Thomas who was boarding the jet after the pilot called her. "I just had these visions of Thomas hijacking the plane or something," she said. Ridge said he wouldn't be surprised if that happened next. Taylor asked how things went with Thomas and if he fired him. Ridge said no. Taylor wondered if Thomas understood that the Taboo line was over. Ridge told her that he was just going to leave things as they were left (with Brooke and Thomas announcing they were going to move forward with the line). "Why would you let them defy you like this?" Taylor exclaimed. Ridge asked Taylor if she agreed with Thomas in thinking that cutting the line was abuse of power. Taylor disagreed and said that if he hadn't cancelled the line it would have been "tantamount to child abuse". Ridge got a call from the pilot that they were set to take off. Taylor said she wasn't finished talking with him yet and that she would stay with him for the ride to Paris. "Besides, I don't think you should be alone right now." she said. During flight, Taylor walked around the plane imagining how the scene of Thomas and Brooke kissing had played out. She then went on to remind Ridge of how he said that he would leave Brooke if she crossed the line with Thomas. "I said i'd walk out that door and straight back to you. I guess that was imagining that they would be having an affair, not an alliance against me. And, of course, you are married." Ridge replied. Taylor told Ridge that she had to be honest with him, going on to revealing to him that it was Whip who took the incriminating photos of Thomas and Brooke. Ridge was disgusted and asked Taylor if she really loved him. Taylor said that he's a great husband, adding that this wasn't her ideal dream life, but who has one anyway?

              Stephanie complimented Eric on one of his new designs and said he hadn't lost his touch. Eric said that the latest press conference got his creative juices flowing and that he wants to do something for the womens Taboo line. Stephanie asked Eric if he knew that Ridge had canceled the Taboo line. Eric had no idea. "Since when?" he asked. "Since Ridge found out Tom kissed Brooke.". Eric said everyone knew about that already. Stephanie told him this wasn't the public kiss on the runway, but the one the two shared on a plane together on the way back from Paris. She explained how Thomas did it while Brooke was asleep. Eric wondered what the harm of it was if Brooke was asleep. Stephanie said it was a catastrophe and that Brooke wasn't some stuffed animal. "You just can't accept the fact that an older women like Brooke would hold an allure over a young man. When I was 16 it was all I could think about!" Eric lamented. Stephanie told Eric that this wasn't about him, it was about Thomas. "It's his fathers wife!" she said. Eric asked what happened after the kiss. "She woke up." said Stephanie. "Just like a fairy tale." Eric said jokingly. Stephanie said that she was appalled by this whole situation and that he should be to. Eric completely disagreed and said she was overreacting. "I see that you are once again dredging up the old "Brooke is the bane of all peoples existence" platform. I'm disappointed." said Eric. Steph said she was disappointed to and that she thought Brooke had finally changed. Eric suddenly agreed with her that this was serious, and said they should go and talk to Brooke and Thomas.

              Brooke and Thomas were having fun doing the photo shoot with Hope and Oliver. Stephanie and Eric walked in and wondered what was going on. "Isn't it obvious?" said Thomas. Hope said they were almost done and that they could take a break if they needed to talk to Brooke and Thomas. Steph said she did so Hope and Oliver left for a lunch break. Stephanie told Thomas that his Grandfather had something to say to him. Thomas explained his side of the story quickly to Eric. Much to Stephanie's shock, Eric told Thomas that he agreed with him completely and that he would tell Ridge that the next he saw him. "So, what did you want to say to us, Eric?" said Brooke. Eric explained that he had some designs he wanted to show Thomas for the Taboo womens line. Thomas said he would be glad to look at them, and then two left the room, leaving Brooke and Stephanie alone. Stephanie once again expressed her disappointment in Brooke, saying that she gave Brooke her total friendship and trust and that all she did was throw it back at her. Brooke said this wasn't about them, it's about Thomas. "I am not going to let your paranoia ruin this for him," said Brooke, mentioning how she raised raised Thomas and loved him and felt he deserved to come out of his fathers shadow.

              Later, Brooke joined Thomas and Eric and admired Eric's designs. Thomas worried what Ridge would think when his dad got back. Eric said they would worry about that when that bridge comes along.

              Stephanie skyped Ridge on his plane and told him about Thomas and Brooke's photo shoot and the fact that they were still going along with the line he canceled. Ridge said there was nothing he could do while thousands of feet in the air. Stephanie reminded him of how he said he wouldn't tolerate another scandal like this and encouraged him to find Taylor and "grab hold of her and don't ever let go." because she's the only women whose ever brought sanity to his life. Taylor looked on from in front of him with a cheeky smile on her face.

                IT HAPPENED TODAY…

                After their kiss, Dayzee warned Thomas not to go to war with his father. Thomas asked why she thinks he should back off. Dayzee told him that Ridge is his father and he knows he doesn't want to lose him. Thomas said he doesn't know how he'll be able to work things out with his dad since it's pretty clear he's ready to fire him. "What if he does? What does that change? You're still his son. That's the relationship you've got to honor." said Dayzee. Thomas said that's not enough and that he's tired of apologizing. "Yes, I did something wrong but nobody got hurt and nobody suffered any lasting damage here." he said. Dayzee told him that was his opinion and that he doesn't get to decide when he's done apologizing, it's the people he hurts who get to decide when they're tired of hearing it.

                Liam and Bill discussed business in Bill's office. Liam stumbled on a desk and Bill tried to get him to go back home and get more rest. Jarrett arrived and Liam asked him if he had any news about the Taboo press conference. Jarrett showed them the copy of the Forrester memo he found earlier. "I don't think Taboo is supposed to exist, and I don't think were supposed to know." he said. Bill looked at the memo and wondered if the news of Taboo's cancellation was out already. Jarrett told him that it was business as usual with Thomas and Brooke. Bill realized something must have finally pushed Ridge's buttons and wondered what it could have been. Bill asked Jarrett how he found the memo. Jarrett told him he found it on the floor. Liam wondered why they would still hold a press conference if the line was cancelled anyway. Jarrett suggested that maybe Ridge changed his mind. "Twice in one day? I don't think Ridge is capable of that much mental exercise. Changing his clothes twice? Maybe." said Bill. Liam then suggested if maybe Thomas knew what Ridge was up to and headed him off at the pass. Bill thought that could be plausible and then asked Jarrett if Ridge was at the conference. Jarrett told him he was. Bill asked him how he looked. "Especially stone-faced" replied Jarrett. Bill said he was appalled and wondered if Thomas would pull such a dastardly act on his own father. Bill thought that this would make a nice cover story. Liam tried to combat that by saying that they can't do this because they don't know if there even is a story. "Do you know how much I hate the word "can't"?" said Bill. He then went on to say that this was the perfect storm for a tabloid scandal and that it was what they live for, also adding that Ridge used the tabloids to exploit Taboo. "Well, it's a double-edged sword. Welcome to the other side of the blade." he said. Liam pleaded with Bill once again not to release the story, mentioning Hope ("The girl I love") and how printing something racy involving her mother could hurt her. Bill budged and said he would hold the story for a few days to see what develops.

                Ridge told Brooke that both she and Thomas work for him. Brooke continued to be against his plans to cancel Taboo and told Ridge she was worried about his and Thomas' relationship and didn't want it to fizzle all because of this. Thomas entered the room. Ridge told him it wasn't acceptable to know know that beneath all the risque shots he made, that he had an agenda involving his wife. Thomas said that no one else knew what his dreams were except for Brooke, saying that she was the only one who ever believed in him. He also added once again that he didn't know why he kissed her, but that it was no big deal. Ridge let Thomas know that all was not forgiven. Thomas left. Ridge got a business phone call that commanded him to go to Paris. Brooke suggested she come with him. Ridge said it wouldn't be a good idea for them to both be gone at the same time. Brooke told Ridge that he doesn't need to have any concerns about her and Thomas working together. "I keep trying to believe that." said Ridge. "You don't really think that I would be unfaithful with you're son?" replied Brooke. Ridge reminded her of how she stood in front of a room full of reporters and allowed Thomas to defy him. Brooke told Ridge there was no other man in this world she finds more attractive than him. "What about respect?" said Ridge. "I heard you, and I know you feel betrayed by me. But that pain is nothing compared to what you would feel if you lose the love and respect of your son. I just couldn't let that happen." said Brooke. She told Ridge to spend as much time in Paris as he needed and that this wasn't the end of anything. "And you will forgive me. Heck, you might even thank me. Taboo is no threat to you and Thomas is no threat to you and me. The only threat would be to lose your son and I love you to much to see that happen. I hope you'll understand." Brooke said persuasively. Ridge then left as Brooke's eyes filled with tears.

                  B&B Recap: Wednesday, March 16, 2011

                  (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "The Bold and the Beautiful" Episode Recap – Wednesday, March 16, 2011.

                  IT HAPPENED TODAY…

                  Thomas assured the press that Taboo is here to stay and on the move as Ridge, Stephanie, and Taylor looked on in shock. Reporters bombarded Brooke with questions about the line but she wasn't sure what to say. Another reporter asked Thomas and Brooke if their campaign was to scandalous. Thomas and Brooke made a joke out of it. Katie asked Brooke if she and Ridge were proud of Thomas. Brooke replied with a yes. Jarrett (the reporter) then asked Thomas how he really felt about Brooke. Thomas replied comically by saying, "A seven, maybe an eight." Everyone in the crowd laughed. Thomas made one last announcement, announcing that a portion of each Taboo sale would be donated to homeless people worldwide. "Yes my friends, Taboo is here to stay. We will make a difference and the house of Forrester Creations will rise to new levels." After the conference, Ridge ordered Thomas to come to his office with him.

                  Pam asked Donna how her honeymoon was. Donna told her it was lovely. Before walking away, Pam joked and asked her if she brought an extra suitcase with honey bear bottles for Justin, much to Donna's annoyance. Katie sensed a weird vibe in the room. Donna noted that she felt something was up as well. Katie wondered what Stephanie and Taylor were talking about across the room. Eric approached Donna and Katie before they left and told Donna how nice it was to see her so happy.

                  Stephanie told Brooke that she was stunned by Thomas's defiance. She wondered if Brooke convinced Thomas to hold the press conference. Taylor surprisingly didn't blame Brooke for this and said she believed Thomas orchestrated this by himself. Stephanie told Taylor that she thinks Brooke and Ridge's marriage is over because of this.

                  While walking in a hurry, Madison dropped the memo copy saying the Taboo line was canceled. Later, Jarrett found it.

                  Ridge was infuriated with Thomas and Brooke. He asked Brooke how she could do this. Thomas told him that Brooke had nothing to do with it, he explained that she thought he was announcing the end of Taboo. Ridge was still very upset and said he wanted to protect the family and that the only way to do that would be to stop Taboo. Thomas said that in his opinion everyone is overreacting about the kiss. He told his father once again that he was not in love with his wife and begged him not to take away his first big success. Ridge told Thomas that he doesn't give orders around here. Brooke stepped into the conversation and told Ridge that he would've done the exact same thing at his age. Thomas declared that he's not going to let go of the line and said that he's only doing what Ridge would've done at his age. "Everything I know, everything I've done, I learned it from you."

                  Later, Dayzee came to see Thomas in his office. She said she came because Stephanie told her he might need a friend right now. With Dayzee sitting in his lap, Thomas told her that he had a good day going up against his father. He recited the whole story about the kiss being revealed to his family. Dayzee sympathized with Ridge and said she could understand why he would be so upset about the kiss. Thomas defended himself. He then told Dayzee about how he intercepted his fathers memo and announced to the press that he's going forward with the line. Dayzee was impressed when Thomas told her about his new plan to donate proceeds to the homeless. Thomas told her that he learned this from her and that he's a better man because of it. He told her that the world was a better place because of her, and then they kissed.

                  Brooke tried to calm Ridge down. He told her he could not understand why she didn't call off the conference. Brooke told him that the company needs Taboo and that he should have never canceled it. She then added that she's going to continue promoting the line. She hoped Ridge would not walk away from her because of it.

                    B&B Recap: Tuesday, March 15, 2011

                    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "The Bold and the Beautiful" Episode Recap – Tuesday, March 15, 2011.

                    IT HAPPENED TODAY…

                    Brooke begs Ridge not to cancel the line Thomas worked so hard to build. Ridge says that it's already done. Brooke asks him to think about it for a couple of days. Ridge says he can't do that. Thomas crossed the line with him and there's no way he's changing his mind. Ridge said he has to protect Thomas from himself because he has underlying feelings for Brooke, thanks to the Taboo line. "As Thomas pointed out, he's very much like I was at that age. I know you don't want to be, and I know he denies it, but you are a temptation to him. It'll be best for everyone if we just put a halt to the line.". Brooke asks about the conference. Ridge tells her that Madison has already canceled it. Brooke worries about Thomas and if he's able to understand this. Ridge says that he's an excellent designer and that he'll be able to get over this and then move on. Just then, Stephanie enters the room and says she and Ridge need to discuss what's happened. Ridge says everything's under control. Stephanie isn't having it and blames Brooke again. Brooke leaves and says she's going to see Thomas. Stephanie says she shouldn't be anywhere near him. Brooke says Thomas is devastated and needs the support. She then leaves the room.

                    Alone together, Stephanie asks Ridge when he plans on dealing with Brooke. Ridge said she isn't the issue here, Thomas is. Ridge tells her not to do this when her and Brooke have come so far. Stephanie says she's beginning to believe that was the biggest mistake in her life. She tells him she feels betrayed by Brooke.

                    Madison is worried about what Thomas told her to do. She said that it's not to late to turn back. She's worried about him. Thomas says that everything will continue to go on as planned and that he'll be fine. Madison wonders why Ridge wants to cancel Taboo in the first place. Thomas tells her that it's complicated and to not worry about it. She leaves.

                    Summer visits Thomas and they make-out. She tells him that everyone's excited wondering what he's going to do next. She asks for a clue on what's to come. Thomas says he doesn't kiss & tell and that it won't be long until he reveals what's next. The two kiss again just as Taylor approaches the door. Madison leaves. Taylor says that her and Thomas need to talk. She told him that Ridge had to be told about the kiss. She also said she knows he's upset that Ridge canceled his line, but that this is not the end of his career. "No mom, it certainly isn't." said Thomas. Taylor asked if things were ok between them now. Thomas said not exactly because she shouldn't have told Ridge about the kiss. Taylor once again said that it was something she just had to do. Thomas said his father is out of control and he's just overreacting. Taylor wondered if Thomas was willing to work things out with his father despite their differences. "If he wants to talk to me after today, I'll be ready and willing.". Taylor wondered why after today and not now? Thomas said he had something to tend to and then headed for the door. Taylor asked if things were at least ok between them now. "You know what, let's wait until the end of the day, see how you feel" said Thomas. He left the room. Taylor looked puzzled.

                    At the press conference, Eric, Thorne, Katie, Oliver and Donna are all in attendance. Jarrell (a reporter) asks Eric what's to be expected at this conference. Eric says he has no clue. Katie asks Oliver if he might know anything since he had a shoot with Brooke and Thomas earlier. He keeps his mouth sealed. Thorne doesn't know either. "We have no idea what Thomas and Brooke have up their sleeves."

                    Alone together, Stephanie asks Ridge when he plans on dealing with Brooke. Ridge said she isn't the issue here, Thomas is. Ridge tells her not to do this when her and Brooke have come so far. Stephanie says she's beginning to believe that was the biggest mistake in her life. She tells him she feels betrayed by Brooke. Ridge says that Brooke did this to protect Thomas. Just then, Taylor barges into the room and says that Brooke wasn't trying to protect anyone but herself. Stephanie tells Ridge that the woman he's married to has ruined his relationship with his son. She then goes on to remind Ridge about how he said that if Brooke lied to him again, he'd go back to Taylor. Ridge said that this was totally different. Taylor dodged the whole thing by saying that Thomas needed his father right now. Stephanie told her that Brooke had already gone to visit him. Taylor was worried because she knows Thomas is vulnerable to Brooke, and she thinks Brooke is starting to become vulnerable to him as well.

                    Madison enters the room and breaks the news to Ridge that she didn't cancel the press conference and that it was about to begin. Shocked, Ridge left the room. Taylor and Stephanie followed.

                    Thomas arrived at the conference to a room full of welcome applause. He was bombarded by the press. Jarrell asked him if there would be any surprises today. Thomas assured him that there would be. Across the room, Brooke arrived at the conference and asked Madison what was going on. Thomas came up to them and dismissed Madison. Brooke asked what was going on. "We're addressing the press, are you ready?" said Thomas. He told her that he stopped the cancellation memo from going out. He told Brooke that he wanted her standing next to him when he addressed the press. Eric introduced Thomas to the runway stage. He tells the press that he plans to expand the Taboo line and possibly explore a woman's line. Ridge, Stephanie, and Taylor arrive in the back just as Thomas announces that he and Brooke are planning another European tour. "Taboo will be everywhere, and we will be to. So look for us as we'll be looking for you. Nothing can stop Taboo."
