Week­days SABC3 18:00

Acou­ple can only have so many wed­dings and vow re­newals be­fore we don’t bother to rsvp. and hon­estly, brooke and ridge (kather­ine kelly lang and thorsten kaye) are push­ing it. con­sid­er­ing he ditched her dur­ing their pre­vi­ous hon­ey­moon in 2013 and the com­mit­ment-phobia that he’s been giv­ing off since re­turn­ing in de­cem­ber last year, we’re not ex­actly toss­ing the con­fetti when ridge pro­poses to brooke on mon­day 2 march. at least there’s some­thing else to be ex­cited about. are you lov­ing what’s hap­pen­ing be­tween ridge and katie (heather tom) as much as we are? if you haven’t swapped sides, watch them on a play­date with their kids on thurs­day 19 and fri­day 20 fe­bru­ary, then swoon over their heart-to­heart on wed­nes­day 25 fe­bru­ary.

a changed man

brooke and ridge have in­cred­i­ble his­tory but per­haps it’s time to leave that in the past. “ridge has gone through some­thing sig­nif­i­cant dur­ing his time away – some­thing that’s changed him,” says bold pro­ducer bradley bell (yes, some­thing far more im­por­tant than ridge’s face has changed). “he’s be­come introspective about the first chap­ter of his life and the highs and lows of be­ing mar­ried to a woman like brooke. he’s been work­ing, trav­el­ling, keep­ing a low pro­file and try­ing to an­a­lyse him­self and the mis­takes he’s made. he’s been think­ing a lot about what he wants for the re­main­der of his life,” ex­plains brad. the pull to­wards brooke is pow­er­ful, but thorsten ex­plains that re­mar­riage might not be the best for ridge: “look­ing back on re­la­tion­ships from 20 years ago, i tend to re­mem­ber all of the good parts. then you get back to re­al­ity and go, ‘oh, that’s right. she does that thing with her tooth that drives you nuts.’ and you can’t get around it.”

what does ridge want?

he’s in the mood for some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent. and on fri­day 20 fe­bru­ary, the sweet and sen­si­tive katie re­ally seems to get him as they re­cite po­ems from shel­ley’s love’s phi­los­o­phy (writ­ten in 1820) to one an­other. but katie backpedals on fri­day 27 fe­bru­ary, when she tells ridge, “we’ve both been hurt; it’s only nat­u­ral that we’d find a con­nec­tion in each other. you un­der­stand what i’ve been through bet­ter than any­one. but that’s all it is. my sis­ter’s in love with you, ridge. i’m not gonna do to her what she did to me… this has to be the end.” re­jected, ridge goes back to brooke with an en­gage­ment ring. way to put sis­ters be­fore mis­ters, katie. but can she live with her de­ci­sion?
