    Will Ridge Pop the Question?

    Tuesday, July 24 2007
    Nick hires Brooke as his new lead designer; Thorne hides his pain with booze and pills; Ridge gives Ashley a ring box

    Brooke is Forrester Creations' new lead designer

    It’s all about work at Forrester Creations, as Nick and Brooke are crunching numbers and brainstorming about the future of the company. They decide that what they really need is a brand new designer – one that can stand up to Eric’s and Ridge’s design genius. Brooke volunteers for the job, telling a skeptical Nick that, although her expertise is in marketing, she has been studying design a lot lately and knows the business inside and out. Besides, she says, she needs something to distract her from sitting home alone and in the quiet now that the kids are gone. Nick is hesitant, but he says yes and gets a quick, exuberant hug from Brooke. He wants to tell Taylor about the decision, and gets ready to leave so he can tell her in person. Brooke reminds him not to tell Taylor about what happened on The Marlin because “it’s never going to happen again.”

    Meanwhile, Felicia is trying to calm Eric’s nerves by reminding him that they don’t even know for sure if Nick is going to hire Brooke. “Nick may be a lot of things,” growls Eric, “but he’s not stupid.” Felicia, not knowing that Nick has just hired Brooke as his new lead designer, tries another tactic with Eric – telling him not to worry because their design team is head and shoulders above Nick’s. Eric and Stephanie begin arguing again about whose fault it is that this has happened, but Stephanie is distracted when she remembers that Thorne should have been in the office and she hasn’t seen him lately. Felicia tells Stephanie that she’s been watching Allie for the past couple days because Thorne’s “been so busy.” Thorne bursts in at that moment, happy and full of energy. He’s surprised to hear that Brooke may be working with Nick now, but, like Felicia, isn’t worried about it. Thorne announces that he’s going out with “Alanna,” one of the new models tonight. Alanna comes in and Thorne, trying to introduce her, has a hard time remembering her last name, but laughs about it and heads out to a preview at The Beach Club.

    Ridge and Ashley get some alone time

    Ridge and Ashley are at home playing cards with Hope, R.J., and Abby. The kids run upstairs to play and Ridge tells Ashley that she’s made things so much easier for the kids by being there. He tells her she has a maternal side and that she’s “smart, beautiful…incredibly sexy.” They do a little kissing and then Ridge says, “Feels right, doesn’t it?” He tells Ashley that a couple months ago he was feeling lost and getting used to the idea of being alone. Ashley says that for a couple of years she was running, but the Forresters have become a second family to her. “I guess I don’t have to run anymore,” she says. She tells him that for a long time she thought he was being pulled in two different directions – hers and Brooke’s – but now she’s convinced he knows exactly what he wants. It’s clear that the two of them would like a little alone time together, which is fortunate because Ridge has already arranged for Stephanie to take the kids overnight.

    Taylor is less than thrilled with Nick's new hire

    Alone in Nick’s office, Brooke is looking through some files when Taylor walks in. Having come to the office to find Nick, Taylor is surprised and not too happy to find Brooke there instead. “What are you doing here, Brooke?” she asks. At first Brooke lies to Taylor, telling her that she just stopped by to see Nick. But when Brooke nicely asks Taylor about her doctor visit, Taylor presses Brooke, asking her why she’s being so nice when just yesterday she blamed Taylor for the judge’s decision to take away her kids. Brooke comes clean – admitting that Nick has hired her. Taylor thinks it’s a bad idea. “I know you’re married and I respect your marriage and I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize it,” Brooke tells her, but Taylor admits that she doesn’t believe Brooke for one second. She tells Brooke that she thinks things are too volatile right now and that she doesn’t think it’s healthy for Brooke to be working alongside Nick when she’s still in love with him. But Brooke convinces Taylor that she would never do anything to jeopardize getting her kids back, and Taylor reluctantly agrees.

    Thorne parties hard, trying to forget his pain

    Thorne and Alanna enter The Beach Club ready to party. Immediately Thorne grabs a glass of champagne and wants to dance. Alanna excuses herself to “powder her nose,” leaving Thorne alone. He pulls out his wallet to pay for a drink and finds himself instead looking at a picture of Darla. Quickly he closes the wallet and pulls out a bottle of pills. He shakes a few into his hand and washes them down with a gulp of champagne.

    After Stephanie leaves with the kids, an alone Ridge and Ashley are feeling very romantic. There’s lots of kissing going on, some wine, a fire. They’re on the couch and things are getting heated up. Suddenly Ridge reaches into his pocket and pulls out a ring box. He sets the box on Ashley’s knee. “What is it?” she asks, shocked. He tells her she has to open it to find out, leaving her (and the rest of us) wondering if he's about to pop the question.

    only on the soaps does someone pop the question THAT fast! Whatever. I can only imagine Taylor's face when she learned that Brooke was working with Nick! Serves the dummy right! Go brooke and nick!

    i hope Ashley never decides to take some tranquilizers & goes to bed while Ridge is in the house!

    I don't think it's a ring. And the Rick thing he'll get over so it can be the first strike against her for later use.

    Brooke Brooke Brooke, she is constantly saying how she loves Nick, but won't act on it. Wow, how very nice and noble of you tramp. At least not yet, is what she really means. And constantly reminding Nick, it won't happen again. But of course, watch her put herself in his presence day in and day out. At least Taylor knows she is lying, but is still stupid in giving the ok. Brooke is going to hurt her again, all in the name of destiny.

    ***“I know you’re married and I respect your marriage and I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize it."***

    oh Brooke, who are you kidding girl? She must've said the same thing to Big Steph, Ridge, Taylor, and Bridget over the years! LOL.

    Posted by DiMera at Tuesday, July 24 2007 12:28 PM

    why isnt Big Steph hovering over Thorne the way she always does around Ridge?

    If she did then maybe she'd know that her other son is really messed up!

    How true of Loosey, she always say I respect your marriage, did she respect Stephanie's marriage to Eric? Do you see why this woman has a deep vendetta against your slow butt! Thats why she'll constantly have her foot in your a..

    And Taylor needs to go do a "Waiting to Exhale" on the boat she bought sailor boy...get you some gasoline pour it all over the boat, light a cigarette and toss that bee..atch on the Marlin and let that motha burn!

    Well, the tables are turning. Today was the first day in a long while that I heard someone say something negative about Taylor. Thorne doesn't think to highly of her after all. I guess all isn't forgotten. He did such a great job. Feeling pretty bad for him. At least Stephanie finally looked like she noticed something was a bit off with him.

    of course TayTay didnt believe Brooke for one second, she's heard that line before!

    i agree. i don't think a ring is in there. maybe it's a pair of earrings or something but if it is a ring...i'll be d@mmed. they've been in a relationship for what, a few months?

    and LATE IN KY,

    i agree. as a Y&R fan myself, i c that Abby goes back and forth from GC to LA the same way Brooke goes back and forth from Fridge to Ick. ahahaha
