Women at WAR! “The last thing Quinn wants reminding of is that Stephanie once reigned supreme in her home!”
Pam AND Charlie’s ENGAGEMENT BUBBLE IS BURST WHEN Quinn VEHEMENTLY OBJECTS TO THE BRIDE’S REQUEST FOR HER BIG DAY!
she’s made to Ridge to be a faithful wife.
Nevertheless, she’s agitated as she returns to work, unable to deflect Ridge’s questions about her “client meeting”. Fuming over the latest details of Bill’s behaviour, Ridge warns his wife not to trust him. Reconvening with Thorne, he’s adamant: now is the time to strike!
Finding him at home, Ridge and Thorne are ready for battle, ignoring Bill’s disquiet at their intrusion. They want him to stay away from Brooke – and especially to keep his filthy hands and lips off her! Laughing in the men’s faces, Bill maintains that he doesn’t have to do a damn thing they say – and as the argument moves to the balcony overlooking the estate grounds, a fist-fight erupts! Suddenly, push turns to shove and Bill goes flying over the railing, plunging to the ground below! In shock as he looks down at Bill’s lifeless body, Ridge calls an ambulance while Thorne races down the steps to check for a pulse.
Rushed to hospital as the lights flash and the sirens wail, Bill’s condition is grave. In minutes Ridge and Thorne are joined by Brooke and Katie to keep vigil. When a doctor says the outcome isn’t looking good, the frantic Logan sisters demand answers from their husbands, who try to defend their actions. Soon enough, Ridge and Thorne must also defend themselves to Detective Sanchez (Jeremy Ray Valdez). Under intense interrogation, they struggle to cover up the ugly details of what went down.
Then the tension becomes unbearable as a menacing Thorne sneaks into Bill’s room to whisper something nasty in his ear while Ridge rages anew at Brooke’s request to see Bill. Could Ridge or Thorne be finally pushed to make another – successful – attempt on an ailing Bill’s life? As deeply in love with each other now as they were the day they first laid eyes on each other, Pam and Charlie revel in romantic bliss as they join Eric and Quinn for lunch at the Forrester mansion. Naturally preparing the meal because Quinn can’t cook, culinary king Charlie and his queen Pam tease her about not being able to use the oven; then the women clash about the painting adorning the living room wall...
Sarcastically observing that she preferred Stephanie’s portrait above the mantel, Pam (Alley Mills) bristles at Quinn (Rena Sofer) feeling so at home, teasing that she loves to cook for Eric (John McCook) so he doesn’t starve! All the bitchy banter weighs heavily on a distracted Charlie (Dick Christie), who scurries to the kitchen. Noticing her fiancé’s anxiety, what’s coming slowly dawns on Pam when Charlie shows her a photo montage of the special times in their relationship. Pam’s happily aflutter as he adds that he loves her… and her lemon bars!
Remembering the desserts baking in the oven, Pam goes to retrieve it but is bemused when Charlie mentions a concerning lump in the middle of one bar. Biting into it, he feigns choking – before spitting out a blingy diamond engagement ring! “It’s for you, Pammy,” Charlie coos, asking her to let him be her knight in shining armour forever. Through tears, Pam giddily accepts – but as her mind whirrs with wedding ideas, darkness is already descending in the living room… with Quinn wondering why the lemon bars are taking so long to be served. Dessert is all but forgotten when Pam breaks the happy news to Eric… along with the special request to have the ceremony at the mansion, the cherished home of her beloved sister Stephanie. Although Eric is thrilled to host the wedding for his sister-in-law, sure that Stephanie will be looking down upon her fondly on the day, Quinn immediately objects! The last thing she wants reminding of is that Stephanie once reigned supreme in the home that now belongs to her!
Predictably, Pam gets the hump and as the women argue over the wedding venue, she shows signs of reverting to form, aghast at Quinn’s nasty comments about her history of mental instability! Seething, Pam tells her not to even think about ruining the ceremony.
Not about to let Quinn win, Pam tackles Eric – wanting to know if he feels the same way about the wedding as his wife. With Pam petitioning Eric, Quinn corners Charlie, clearly out to stir trouble by suggesting he forget about marrying Pam! Incensed at Quinn’s mean, toxic interference, Charlie reports back to his fiancée – and she’s livid! Pam confronts Quinn but Eric’s attempt to referee the verbal tirade is in vain as the ladies end up in a physical tussle over Stephanie’s portrait, ending with Quinn sticking her foot right through it!
That’s like waving a red rag at a bull as Pam lashes out, ensuring that her new foe gets the message… while Eric stands by, watching on in disappointment at his wife’s behaviour, determined to see that one of his favourite blondes gets the special day she’s always wanted. Watch this space!
