OUTRAGED AT Bill’s TREATMENT OF THEIR WIVES, Ridge AND Thorne CONFRONT THE MAN THEY LOVE TO HATE IN A CLASH THAT MAY PROVE FATAL!
Ridge Forrester may have swung Katie’s sole custody bid for her son Will in her favour by blackmailing the judge, but if he thought Bill Spencer was done and dusted he’d best think again! Will may be firmly in Katie’s care but Bill’s still slyly sniffing around Brooke, and Ridge has finally had enough! Discovering that his wife has already shared two extramarital liplocks with his nemesis, Ridge furiously hisses at Brooke that
Bill should’ve sent her a Hallmark card in thanks for her support during the custody case – instead of putting his lips all over her!
After Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) also reveals that she told Katie (Heather Tom) how Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) bribed Judge McMullen (Joe Lando) to rule in her favour, Ridge scoffs at his wife’s mantra that Bill (Don Diamont) isn’t out to cause trouble. In fact, he’s furious that she keeps defending the “animal” whose only motive is to play her to his own advantage.
Thunderstruck when Ridge says she’s free to marry Bill if she wants, a teary Brooke appeals to her husband not to throw away their marriage by letting this man divide them. Tenderly clasping Ridge’s face, Brooke says, “Yours are the only lips I want kissing me!” Sighing, Ridge gives in and forgives her… but his brother Thorne’s (Ingo Rademacher) conversation with Katie ends up changing everything... Irritated about Katie giving Bill more access to Will (Finnegan George) than the judge granted, Thorne jumps to the conclusion that he’s threatening her. She then pokes the bear with the revelation that she’s doing it because Ridge coerced the judge into ruling against Will. Expecting Thorne to be as upset as she’s with Ridge for jeopardising Will’s future, Katie’s taken aback when Thorne supports his brother’s intervention. They may have been dirty tactics – but they were necessary to protect Will from his diabolical dad!
Leaving Katie stewing over the precarious position Ridge has left her in, Thorne convenes with his bro to thank him for what he did for her. The only problem is Katie isn’t abiding the judge’s ruling, allowing Bill to potentially steal Will from her... Disgusted, Ridge tells Thorne they
have to stop Spencer. Whatever it takes, he wants Bill out of their lives, and Thorne’s all for what he has in mind!
Planning their strategy, the siblings are again caught off-guard when Bill seeks out Brooke at Il Giardino. Thanking her for changing Katie’s mind about the access agreement, Bill makes Brooke visibly uncomfortable when he calls her “a hell of a woman” – adding that he was an idiot to let her slip through his fingers in the first place! Interrupting, Brooke says Bill has to stay away from her, mindful of the promise
BROOKE Bill (Don Diamont) socks Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) as Thorne (Ingo Rademacher) watches on! KATIE
