At Forrester Creations, Brooke tells everyone assembled that the rivalry between Ridge and Rick has to stop. Ridge questions if she's okay with Rick shooting at him. She says she'll have to be okay with it. Brooke decrees that Rick will remain as CEO and Ridge will deal with it and press no charges. Ridge says it's all fine - as long as Rick steps down. Rick threatens to drag Ridge through the headlines with him. Brooke tells Ridge he owes her. They argue. Caroline tells Brooke she can't come in there like this - she didn't sleep with her ex, but Rick took Maya to bed within hours. Brooke asks Caroline if she wants Rick back. Caroline shares how Rick took her back and it was a sham to get control of Forrester. Caroline tells Brooke she's done. Brooke tells Ridge to go. He says Rick is dangerous and is leading her by the nose as always. "Great parenting." In the corridor, Pam and Donna bicker about Rick. Donna thinks he'll listen to Brooke. Pam clucks that no one ever listens to Brooke, except Donna. Pam feels the only solution to this mess is to get Eric back there. Donna asks Pam what she's typing. Pam says, "Our resignations. We have no idea who's going to walk out of that room in charge or who's going home with who." Inside, Brooke tells Maya that Rick is staying in his marriage. Brooke appeals to Rick to let go of his anger. "You love Caroline." She asks him to tell her he forgives her.
