The shocker of the year — so far, anyway — happened earlier this week on The Bold and the Beautiful when Ridge resurfaced and it was revealed that he and Bill are in cahoots to protect their families by taking Sheila down together. It’s still unclear if anyone else in Ridge’s family knows about this, and from the way they’ve been acting about Bill and Sheila’s relationship, well, who knows, who knows!

If Brooke is going to be just as surprised as we were to see Ridge back, she’s going to need all of the support she can get. Sure, her and Taylor have sworn him off but we all know that can’t last forever and sooner or later one of them is going to let their love for the man get the better of them. However, there’s one person who just might be the key to reminding Brooke of the pain Ridge has caused her — her dear ole’ dad.
