Teenagers in turmoil
SURROUNDED BY THEIR FEUDING FAMILIES, Coco AND RJ CLING TO EACH OTHER, DESPERATE FOR THEIR ROMANCE NOT TO BECOME A CASUALTY OF THE UNFOLDING DRAMA
Coco says she’s not surprised that Thomas bailed out Sally and the business because he’s a man in love.
Pressured by the Forrester family to trap her sister Sally into a confession of corporate theft to enable them to prosecute Sally, a devastated Coco breaks down in RJ’s arms, crying that she’s wrecked her family and condemned Sally to a life in prison. RJ is supportive, believing in Coco’s innocence and also feeling railroaded by his family into selling out his girlfriend.
Unable to convince Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) not to prosecute Sally (Courtney Hope) or find an alternative punishment to prison, Coco (Courtney Grosbeck) cries as Sally is led away.
After learning that her sister is being spared prosecution, Coco frets over the deal that will permanently shut down Spectra Fashions. She’s sorry that Sally has lost her dreams and Thomas (Pierson Fode) but Sally maintains it’s better to have loved and lost than not love at all. The words crush Coco, who fears that the family infighting will eventually ruin her love for RJ (Anthony Turpel).
Later on, Coco is given cause for celebration during a Forrester discussion about the Spectra fiasco. Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) announces that he’s come to realise that Coco truly was an innocent party in the whole mess and because of her loyalty to them he wants her to stay at Forrester Creations. Thrilled, Coco promises she won’t take the second chance for granted and RJ is similarly ecstatic, confident that he won’t lose his girlfriend now.
Afterwards, Coco’s news about Thomas saving Spectra Fashions from oblivion gives RJ pause for thought. Coco says she’s not surprised Thomas bailed out Sally and the business because he’s a man in love.
Coco looks at RJ as she says that Thomas has demonstrated that he believes in Sally and not her stolen knock-offs. RJ knows that he has a lot to live up to in Coco’s eyes and he vows to honour her values of honesty and integrity above all else.
