Stephanie clears the last box out of the Forrester office. She finds some paperwork, and again drifts off to the childhood memory she had the day before, where she broke a glass and her father was angry. Taylor interrupts the memory by entering the room. Stephanie remarks to Taylor, I didn't realize you could fill boxes with some many personal things Taylor asks Stephanie if she wants to continue their conversation from the day before, and Stephanie tells her, Not today.


Eric comes in, and Stephanie tells him she has started counseling with Taylor so she can work on their marriage. Eric tells her that he thinks talking to Taylor is a good start. After he leaves, Taylor tells Stephanie that she has to change, or Eric will probably leave her.


Brooke and Ridge come into the office, having finished packing up their portion of the building. Stephanie approaches Brooke and tells her that she knows she didn't have to sell her stock to Nick and it's a gesture she'll never forget. Ridge adds, We're all in this together, as family! The rest of the family comes in along with Sally, and the family gathers one last time in Forrester. Stephanie recalls memories of her children growing up in Forrester, and tells them The four of you have turned out to be wonderful adults! She goes on to say, I know you all sacrificed your life's work for me. I'm sorry it had to end this way!

Everyone leaves the office except for Eric and Stephanie. Stephanie tells Eric, I'm very proud to be your wife. I'm very proud to be Mrs. Eric Forrester! The two turn to walk out of the office, and Eric takes one last look at the empty room before turning off the lights and leaving.

At home, Nick tells Jackie that he is the new owner of Forrester Creations. When Jackie asks about Brooke, Nick tells her, Brooke sold her stock to me. She chose the Forrester's. She chose Ridge! Nick tells Jackie he instead wants Bridget to be part of the new Forrester Creations.


Later, Nick comes into the empty Forrester office and sits down at Eric's desk. Bridget comes in and asks Nick one last time, Please don't do this! Nick tells her that Stephanie needs to be held accountable, and her family has forgiven her to many times. Nick goes on to tell Bridget he wants her to be part of the company, and will provide her with flexible hours for her, and for her baby that's on the way. Bridget turns and tells him, I don't need you, or your flexible hours. I lost the baby! Bridget starts to leave, but turns to tell him, That honest man I fell in love with. God, I hope he's in there somewhere. Don't lose yourself in all of this!

Downstairs at Forrester the family gets off the elevator to a round of applause from their employees. Eric gives a speech and tells them Someday, I'm going to get this company back!


Later, Stephanie comes upstairs to see Nick. Stephanie tells Nick that he's made an enemy for life. Stephanie asks Nick what "F" stands for in his business, and then offers suggestions to him, knocking the F out of the glass windows with each one. You may have our name on the outside of the building. You will never have talent in this building!
