SISTERS IN HIS SIGHTS
Brooke AND Katie ARE ONCE AGAIN AT LOOSE CANNON Bill’s MERCY AS HE FINALLY PULLS THE TRIGGER ON EXPOSING The Dressmaker’s DODGY DEAL!
Now that Bill has all the dirt he needs on the bribery scandal on The Bold and the
Beautiful, Brooke and Katie are at his mercy!
The wonders of modern technology – and to be specific, a geeky computer genius called Ken – has finally put Bill back in the driver’s seat when it comes to seeing his young son Will. Hiring supernerd Ken to dust off and unleash his unrivalled computer-hacking skills delivers Bill the proof that Ridge had Judge Craig McMullen in his pocket to deny him custody of little Will! With the help of Ken (Danny Woodburn) and Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) ninja skills, Bill (Don Diamont) lures Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Judge McMullen (Joe Lando) into a very public trap, tricking the pair into revealing the sordid details of Ridge’s bribery of the arbitrator… unaware that Bill and Justin are spying on them! The thought of Ridge being exposed over his risky business is such a dreadful prospect for Logan sisters Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Katie (Heather Tom)! Despite still being quite attracted to Bill and firmly in his corner when it comes to believing he should’ve had access to Will (Finnegan George) via the correct, and lawful, channels, Brooke hates the thought of her husband going to prison for what he’s done. And she’s dead certain that’s the next move Bill will make. Similarly, Katie’s petrified of his reaction to knowing the truth... and although she was complicit in covering up Ridge’s crime, she’s 100 per cent sure that Bill will demand equal, or even
sole, custody of her son -- and that will hurt her even more than going to jail! Comparing notes on the unfolding events, Brooke and Katie fill Thorne (Ingo Rademacher) in on the tense situation going down, and when Ridge returns with the judge, Brooke panics at them being seen together!
Resigned to being at his foe’s mercy, Ridge reveals that Bill knows all about it, with Judge McMullen concurring they’re in deep trouble. Admonishing them that Bill’s no idiot, Katie blasts him for interfering: now she could lose her son! He’ll use this to get just what he wants...
Over at Spencer Publications, Bill salivates over the salacious details he’s gathered to nail “The Dressmaker”, chuckling as he summons Ridge, Brooke, Thorne, Katie and Judge McMullen into his office, promising Justin that the two fools are headed for the slammer… and when that happens, Brooke will be his for the taking! So the quaking quintet prepare to face Bill, who labels the Honourable Judge McMullen as “dishonourable” before serving them with the proof of their crimes. “Gotcha!” Bill snarls to a grunting Ridge and Co, who can only protest their actions were justified. However, an unfazed Bill ignores their claim that his evidence will be inadmissible in court, taunting them gleefully as he stares at Katie, admonishing her for participating in this wily subterfuge. Her poor heart sinks, pensively waiting for what comes next. Brooke steps in to defend her sister, who knows he got the rough end of the pineapple. If he wants to blame someone, it should be
her, Brooke entreats him. Instead of chastising the woman he loves, Bill praises Brooke for standing by him and for being the only one in the room who had the decency to defend his parental rights.
Afraid that Bill will use his wife against him, Ridge yells at his enemy to just mete out his punishment and be done with it! Confronted with Bill’s declaration that he’s still the changed man he’s professed to be, Brooke privately begs him not to call the cops; this would be an opportunity to just show her and the others that he is a better person. Expressing his sentiment that she and Will together make him that better man, Bill admits his feelings to her about their past – and their future... Meanwhile, Ridge’s on tenterhooks over his wife’s intimate tête-a-tête, confident that Bill’s manipulating her to dump him and jump back into bed with the snake! While Brooke bids to calm Ridge’s farm afterwards, he knows Bill’s just getting started with his brutal revenge on him… Across town, Katie’s the one feeling the initial impact of her ex-husband’s wrath as he extracts legal papers from her giving him shared custody of Will. In the aftermath, Katie looks on as Bill discusses Christmas with the lad, inwardly freaking out at betraying Thorne all over again by giving Bill what he wants in Thorne’s absence! With Bill still a loose cannon primed to pull the trigger of payback on the men they love, Brooke and Katie face uncertain futures, potentially robbed of Ridge and Thorne and the marriages they adore. Suddenly, Bill’s the master puppeteer dangling the Logan ladies from a tight string! They’ll dance to his tune!
“If Bill pulls the payback trigger, Ridge and Thorne’s happy marriages could be over!”
