Stay­ing hap­pily mar­ried to Ridge isn’t easy, Brooke’s nd­ing! Es­pe­cially now that he’s pit­ted Hope and St­effy against each other by an­nounc­ing that For­rester fund­ing will be cut for ei­ther the Hope for the Fu­ture col­lec­tion or St­effy’s In­ti­mates line! Be­ing Hope’s big­gest cham­pion, Brooke nat­u­rally wants Ridge to choose her con­ser­va­tive and so­cially re­spon­si­ble cloth­ing line over St­effy’s racier range! How­ever, his re­fusal to roll over is leav­ing the spouses at an un­palat­able im­passe... and that’s trou­ble.

On the day Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is due to make his nal de­ci­sion, Brooke’s (Kather­ine Kelly Lang) tem­per is fray­ing around the edges. She tack­les St­effy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) about re­quest­ing that Hope (An­nika Noelle) sacri ce her fash­ion col­lec­tion so hers can get the fund­ing. Scream­ing that St­effy is ru­in­ing her daugh­ter’s fu­ture be­cause Liam (Scott Clifton) chose Hope as his wife over her, Brooke is far from chas­tened when Ridge in­ter­rupts her tirade. He needs to do what’s best for the com­pany and put all re­sources be­hind Hope for the Fu­ture; end of story, honey!

At the con­fer­ence, Ridge’s ap­proval of In­ti­mates riles Brooke. “I can’t be­lieve you did this to my daugh­ter!” she barks, an­grily adding that he’s crushed Hope’s heart and soul by sim­ply buck­ling un­der to his daugh­ter’s pres­sure. Ridge is just sick, hollers Brooke, be­fore storm­ing out to clear her head!

At Il Giardino, Brooke is still en­raged when Bill (Don Di­a­mont) joins her, guess­ing that the “Dress­maker” has pri­ori­tised St­effy’s cloth­ing over Hope’s. Sym­pa­this­ing with his ex-wife, Bill isn’t sur­prised that Ridge has let her down all over again: it was al­ways bound to hap­pen, he says. He prom­ises her he’ll al­ways be there to give her what­ever she needs, know­ing that they’ll love and care for each other for­ever...

Grate­ful for the sup­port of her “Stal­lion”, Brooke re­turns to Ridge, de­mand­ing he ex­plain the rea­sons for his choice. Hear­ing him re­ply that St­effy needed the com­pany boost more than Hope did, she ac­cuses him of pun­ish­ing Hope for be­ing Liam’s wife. Out­raged that she can’t or won’t see sense, Ridge coun­ters that he has to en­sure FC sells women’s cloth­ing… not to cod­dle young women who feel passed over! Of course, he’d pre­fer to make peace with Brooke in­stead of in­creas­ing the ten­sion. Call­ing a truce with the trai­tor­ous Ridge is the fur­thest thing from Brooke’s mind as she again meets up with Bill in se­cret. Os­ten­si­bly it’s to hear his pleas for her to in­ter­vene with

Katie (Heather Tom) and stop her su­ing him for cus­tody of Will (Fin­negan Ge­orge). Anx­ious to forge peace with one branch of the fam­ily, Brooke pe­ti­tions Katie not to deny Bill ac­cess to his son. How­ever, the other ex Mrs Spencer isn’t in­ter­ested in hear­ing her sis­ter’s ap­peal: the cus­tody suit is go­ing ahead! Re­port­ing back to Bill, Brooke prom­ises him ev­ery­thing will be al­right and, ap­pre­cia­tive of her con­so­la­tion, he moves in and kisses her… tak­ing her very much by sur­prise! She re­coils, re­it­er­at­ing that she’s mar­ried to Ridge, but it’s clear that she didn’t mind the stolen mo­ment!

Re­fo­cus­ing on Ridge, Brooke’s hopes of get­ting their con­nec­tion and their mar­riage back on track are quickly un­der­mined as they de­bate Katie and Bill’s cus­tody ght. Un­aware of Brooke’s clan­des­tine ren­dezvous with Bill, Ridge warns his wife not to in­ject her­self into the drama; get­ting en­tan­gled with Bill

isn’t worth the trou­ble… De­fend­ing her ded­i­ca­tion to her fam­ily, Brooke main­tains her po­si­tion, and that leaves these two com­pletely at odds over the is­sue. He may have asked Brooke to stay out of it but he does the op­po­site, burst­ing into Bill’s of­fice, de­mand­ing he can­cel his coun­ter­claim for his son.

Un­will­ing to ac­cept Bill’s de ance, Ridge goes a step fur­ther, mak­ing an un­usual re­quest to Judge Craig McMullen (Joe Lando) to ad­ju­di­cate the case in Katie’s favour! With­hold­ing his in­ter­ven­tion from Brooke, Ridge knows he’s laid the ground­work for more trou­ble in their mar­riage; as does Brooke, who fears that some­one will nd out that she’s pri­vately meet­ing with Bill, which could eas­ily de­stroy her mar­riage!

Bill YOU BE THE JUDGE Judge McMullen (Joe Lando) is ap­proached by Ridge (Thorsten Kaye)
