B&B Recap: Brand New Chapter.
Brooke and Ridge share their news, Bill tells Wyatt he has plans, and Liam presses Ridge about Katie.
At Spencer Publications, Liam tells Katie it bothers him that she's always putting other people first. "Brooke has no idea what you've given her." Katie says she won't do to Brooke what she did to her. Liam argues that he's learned if someone makes you happy, be with them - don't wait for circumstances to be perfect and risk it slipping away. Later, Brooke arrives. She tells Katie that Ridge proposed. She wants to start over with Katie as well and vows she'll never come between Katie and a man again. Katie tearfully embraces her.
At the beach house, Bill tells Wyatt that Quinn wants him, but she should know it's not going to happen. He asks Wyatt how serious things are with Hope. Wyatt says she's not moving in yet. Bill thinks it could happen anytime. He asks about the 'problem' they had. Wyatt says he made a bad call and Hope forgave him. Bill says he always gave Liam a hard time for 'proving' himself to Hope, but he gets it now. They discuss Brooke. Bill says Ridge has no right to say anything about what she did when he left her. He says, "Valentine's Day is coming and Forrester can't compete with what your Daddy's got planned."
Liam finds Ridge at Forrester and says he was just with Katie. He tells Ridge he doesn't think Katie meant it when she told him to go back to Brooke. Ridge says Katie doesn't play games and he's proposed to Brooke. Stunned, Liam congratulates him, but then brings up the moment between him and Katie. Ridge won't discuss it. Liam presses the issue but Ridge tells him to let it go.
