Bill Sets A Trap!

Ridge felt con­fi­dent Bill would never be able to prove that he and the judge col­luded to de­ter­mine the out­come of Will’s cus­tody hear­ing. Lit­tle did he know that Bill hired tech guru Ken to hack into Judge Mcmullen’s cell phone. The break­through al­lowed Bill to hatch a plan to trick Ridge and the judge into giv­ing up the goods, so to speak. As pre­dicted, he man­aged to ob­tain in­con­tro­vert­ible proof against the two men for ob­struct­ing jus­tice. Ridge and Judge Mcmullen turned three shades of white when they re­al­ized they’d been found out. They sheep­ishly alerted Brooke, Katie and Thorne about what had just hap­pened, and all of them later wrung their hands won­der­ing what Bill would ul­ti­mately do with this juicy bit of in­for­ma­tion.

KATIE GIVES IN

Brooke was in a panic over the le­gal jeop­ardy her hus­band now found him­self in, and Ridge told her all they could do was wait to see what Bill’s next move would be. When Bill fi­nally sum­moned Ridge, Judge Mcmullen, Brooke, Katie and Thorne to meet in his of­fice, they ar­rived to the Spencer build­ing with dread in their hearts. Justin wasted no time in re­play­ing the record­ing they had of Ridge and the judge dis­cussing what they’d done. A tear­ful Katie ex­pressed her re­morse to Bill for keep­ing quiet about the ma­nip­u­la­tion once she’d learned about it. She ex­plained that her guilt over the sit­u­a­tion led her to al­low him more ac­cess to their son. Bill claimed all he ever wanted was an op­por­tu­nity to help raise Will, be­cause that was an ex­pe­ri­ence he didn’t get to have with Wy­att and Liam. Brooke pleaded with Bill to have mercy on Ridge and not press charges. Ul­ti­mately, Bill agreed, and Katie read­ily com­plied with Bill’s re­quest to re­sume a shared cus­tody ar­range­ment.

RIDGE GETS SUS­PI­CIOUS

Bill told Brooke that she and Will both de­served all the credit for his striv­ing to be a bet­ter per­son, and he re­it­er­ated that los­ing her had been the great­est mis­take of his

life. Ridge be­lieved that Bill’s le­niency to­ward him had noth­ing to do with be­ing a kinder per­son, but was re­ally just a ploy aimed at win­ning Brooke back. Brooke de­nied that this was the case and as­sured her hus­band that he was in no dan­ger of los­ing her. But mean­while, Bill made a steadfast vow to Liam and Wy­att about his plans for the fu­ture.

PAM RE­CRUITS DONNA

Donna and Pam bonded with one an­other over their mu­tual dis­dain for Quinn. Pam filled her fren­emy in on some of the crazy stunts Quinn had pulled in re­cent years and said she thought Donna was Eric’s true soul mate. Pam later con­spired to get Donna re-hired as a re­cep­tion­ist at For­rester Cre­ations, be­liev­ing the bomb­shell’s pres­ence around the of­fice would help drive a wedge be­tween Quinn and Eric. Pam apol­o­gized to Donna for be­ing hos­tile to­ward her in the past, and these for­mer foes seemed more than will­ing to forge a strong new al­liance. Quinn was ir­ri­tated when Eric told her to add Pam and Char- lie’s names to the Thanks­giv­ing guest list. When she later over­heard Pam de­scribe Donna as the bet­ter match for Eric, Quinn be­came fu­ri­ous.

TRUCES AND TURKEY

Friends, lover, ri­vals and rel­a­tives came to­gether at the For­rester home for the an­nual Thanks­giv­ing din­ner presided over by Eric and Quinn. With For­resters, Lo­gans, Spencers, Avants and Spec­tras gath­ered around the din­ner ta­ble, they con­tin­ued their an­nual tra­di­tion of say­ing some­thing kind about the per­son who was seated to their right be­fore din­ner.
