hen ridge (thorsten kaye) strolled back into town in december 2014, brooke (katherine kelly lang) saw a chance for another shot at their happily ever after. but it seems that she’ll have to wait a while longer for her fairytale ending.
the damage has been done by her fling last year with bill (don diamont) and now she must pick up the pieces. ridge and brooke may be reunited and still very much in love, but ridge can’t help but be upset with how brooke and bill betrayed her sister katie (heather tom). ridge feels sorry for katie and can’t believe brooke is pushing her to take bill back. “ridge had a problem with how katie was treated,” thorsten says. “brooke’s been around the block and ridge never thought that she’d go with bill and cause that heartache… there’s an understanding that ridge has about how katie must feel. you can’t call it a love affair or anything at this point. but he cares about this woman because she went through something that she really shouldn’t have gone through.”
we are never ever getting back together
it’s not just ridge giving brooke grief. bill’s still in love with her and he’s more determined than ever to win her back. bill believes that brooke dumped him out of guilt but she has other reasons for not rekindling things with her ex, as brooke tells bill on friday 23 january. she blames herself for putting her family in jeopardy and for hurting katie. despite bad-boy bill’s relentless attempts to get her back, brooke urges him to reunite with katie and on monday 26 january, brooke convinces bill to stop pursuing her and to try make things right with katie for the sake of their son will.
bill storms into katie’s office on tuesday 27 january and declares his love, but this time it’s katie who doesn’t want bill back. he begs for another chance but she tells him that “there is no you and me anymore”. adds heather, “bill is the father of katie’s child and katie and bill have a relationship where there is always going to be a connection there. [but] i think at this point, she has moved on.”
ridge & katie
ridge feels bad for the way that katie’s been hurt, but when he takes it upon himself to reach out and make her feel better on monday 26 january, they end up sharing a rather tender moment. there’s no kiss, but when he touches katie’s arm and stares into her eyes, you can feel the chemistry. this is more than just a love triangle – it’s a complicated love square…
brooke puts bill in his place – he needs to go back to katie.
