The Bold and the Beautiful:
Bill warned Brooke he wouldn’t allow a teenager to dictate their lives much longer, as RJ adamantly urged Ridge to fight for Brooke. Ridge had other issues to deal with, like facing Eric, and admitted to his father that his marriage to Quinn hadn’t been legal. Ridge also produced a new power-of-attorney and asked Eric to sign it. After Eric refused, he invited Wyatt to move into the mansion then made his marriage to Quinn official. Though Ridge urged Brooke to marry Bill as soon as possible, to get his Forrester shares, he ended up kissing her passionately. Elsewhere, Steffy wouldn’t move in with Liam until her divorce to Wyatt was final. Liam respected her decision but didn’t waste time showing Steffy how much he’d missed her and the two made love.

With his targets congregated at the pub, Orpheus called John and informed him of a planted bomb. Orpheus soon appeared, took John hostage and left a bomb strapped to Jennifer.
