Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of January 10, 2011
On the jet to Paris, Thomas stared intensely at a sleeping Brooke and blamed the altitude for his growing feelings. He sat down and eyed a bunch of photos of them in various magazines.
Meanwhile at home, Taylor sadly looked at a photo of her son and Brooke. Ridge stopped by and informed her that Thomas and Brooke are on their way to Paris to handle PR for the Taboo line. She was horrified, but he assured her that they'd be surrounded by reporters. She wasn't appeased, especially because they were alone on the private jet. Ridge promised that nothing terrible would happen on the trip. Taylor still didn't trust Brooke and blasted Ridge for setting up the meeting. She implored him to have the pilot turn the plane around.
Jackie was thrilled when Nick offered to officiate her vow renewal ceremony to Owen. Jackie thanked Aggie for getting Nick over there. The ceremony then began, with Aggie serving as a witness. Nick noted that most "normal" women would run from Owen after he cheated on her and had a baby with Bridget — and that he thought that her agreeing to stick it out was a bad decision. "But I was wrong," Nick added, "and was simply passing judgment about the rules of marriage and the way it's supposed to be." He called himself a "rule breaker" and said that he got that from Jackie. Nick then acknowledged Owen's love for Jackie, but warned that he'd always be watching him. "I, too, had my doubts," Jackie admitted to Owen. "I accepted your proposal of marriage because I didn't give a damn — you were too darn hot for me to turn down." She went on about how their love has deepened. "I'm sincerely touched by the care and sensitivity and protection you've shown me, and mostly, darling, by the size of your generous heart." Owen tenderly kissed her hand and replied, "You're a part of me, Jackie. I can't think of any other way to describe how I feel.... Life has very little meaning apart from you." Nick declared them husband and wife — again — and the happy couple kissed. "I'm rather desperate to kiss my naggy Aggie," Nick told his girlfriend and gave her a smooch. Later, Owen asked Nick to toast them. "To the best of both of you," he declared. Owen then toasted his wife and promised to never again let her down. Jackie toasted to her two men.
Thomas continued to think about Brooke while on the plane. He leered at her as she slept, then sat down on the side of the bed so he could get a closer look at her sleeping face. Creepy! Meanwhile, Ridge refused to have the plane turned around. He assured Taylor that Brooke would never do anything to hurt Thomas, but she didn't believe it. "She'll look after him," he stated. On the plane, Thomas kept staring at Brooke and gently caressed her as she slept.
Amber and Tawny dined at Dayzee's, where Tawny urged her daughter to pass of her unborn child as Liam's. Hope entered and Amber implored her mom to not make a scene. Hope asked if she could speak with Amber alone about Liam. Tawny tried to interject, but Amber stopped her. Hope reamed out Amber for trying to steal her designs and her boyfriend. Tawny noted that Hope isn't wearing Liam's ring. Hope went on about how Liam didn't recall his night with Amber and asked her rival if she could share exactly what had happened. Tawny again answered for Amber insisting that Amber and Liam had indeed slept together. Amber replied that she didn't want to discuss it and Hope accused Tawny and Amber of being in on a plan together. She reminded them how Amber had schemed to get Rick back in the day, then demanded that Amber stay away from Liam. Amber and Tawny stormed out. Later, Tawny called Hope a "nauseating, little princess," but Amber understood why Hope would be upset. Tawny went on about how Amber having "Liam's" baby was their ticket to getting rich. Amber stated that her baby is Oliver's — and became emotional as she wondered if her baby would be a boy or girl. Tawny didn't care as long as she claimed that the child is Liam's. Amber noted that the Spencers would want proof. "It's no big deal; people do it all the time," shrugged Tawny of switching around some medical tests. Amber didn't want to lie and prepared to tell Oliver the truth.
At the beach house, Marcus was surprised to learn that Amber was living with Oliver. Oliver lamented that Tawny is staying there, as well. Marcus didn't understand how Ollie could forgive Amber for using him to steal the Forrester Creations designs, but Oliver said that he likes her — strictly as a friend. However, Oliver did not like Tawny and blamed her for making Amber's life such a mess. Later, Oliver overheard Tawny and Amber discussing him and wondered what Amber had to tell him.
Taylor complained to Stephanie about Thomas and Brooke's press junket in Paris. Stephanie was sure that nothing would happen between them. She asked if Whip took the photo, but Taylor evaded the question. Later, Taylor confessed to Whip's wrongdoing, which upset Stephanie. Steph was worried about Taylor, but Taylor went on another rant about how Brooke was going after her son and he wasn't prepared for it. She begged Stephanie to help her protect Thomas.
Meanwhile, in Paris, Brooke and Thomas were grilled by the press. They, of course, asked about the nature of Brooke and Thomas's relationship and the racy photos. The pair insisted that the photo had been a set-up. "If you don't take him, I will," joked an attractive female journalist to Brooke. The crowd asked them to kiss and Brooke coyly replied that it's "taboo." She then praised Thomas's talents and encouraged them to keep an eye on Taboo the line. Thomas was clearly impressed with her for being so smooth and calm with the press. Later, he and Brooke toasted to their success with champagne. Thomas asked if they should keep playing the "game" about their relationship. Brooke sincerely replied that she's enjoyed working with him and he agreed. "You're an alluring, captivating woman," he stated, "and I can see why." She thanked him for the compliment.
In Paris, Brooke was surprised when she returned to her suite and found that Thomas had set up a lavish dinner for her. She praised his performance at the press conference and noted that one of the reporters seemed to be interested in him. Brooke then stated that Thomas is so much like his father. Thomas was sure that he could manage to surprise her. After, he credited Brooke for bringing the publicity to Taboo, but she insisted that he was also doing a great job. Later, Thomas went on about how you can sometimes see a person in a new light. Brooke didn't realize that he was talking about her. "You get me like no one else ever has," he stated.
Back in L.A., Eric, Ridge and Thorne noted how well the Taboo line was doing. Thorne made a joke about Thomas and Brooke and Ridge insisted that nothing was going on with them. He then shared how upset Taylor was over them taking the Paris trip. Thorne reminded Ridge how many Forrester men have fallen for Brooke's charms. Ridge became defensive, but Eric thought that Ridge should have a talk with his son about Thomas's personal life. Thorne wondered if Thomas is gay. Ridge scoffed at the idea, as well as the idea of Thomas going for Brooke.
At the beach house, Amber prepared to tell Oliver that she's carrying his child, but Tawny interrupted her and announced that Amber slept with Liam. She added that he'd now have another shot with Hope. Ollie was shocked that Liam would cheat on Hope and demanded to know exactly what happened the night of the party. Amber reluctantly shared how she'd followed Liam home while he was "out of it." Tawny cut in that it was just something that "happened." "Isn't that right, Amber?" she added pointedly. Amber went along with it, but added that Hope has forgiven Liam. Tawny was sure that Hope and Liam wouldn't last. Oliver was uh, hopeful, about the future. He then asked Amber and Tawny to leave so Hope wouldn't get the wrong idea. Tawny was furious and an argument ensued; Amber broke it up. "Hope is my future," Oliver declared. "We're gonna have all of it — the marriage, the kids — someday." Amber understood and promised to be out as soon as possible. Amber planned to get far away from Tawny and deal with her pregnancy on her own.
After their dinner, Brooke and Thomas went out onto the balcony and enjoyed the view. Thomas couldn't believe that they were actually in Paris — together. He shared how special it was to be able to enjoy his success with her. "I need you to know exactly what I'm feeling," he began. "I love you." Surprise and concern washed over Brooke's face.
In Paris, Thomas noted that Brooke was like a mother to him while he was growing up and thanked her for all she's done for him. Thomas gushed that she was responsible for making him successful. Brooke smiled and replied that she's loved working with him. He hugged her before heading off to bed, lingering for a second to stare at her.
In L.A., Ridge went to his office and was surprised to see Stephanie there. She noted that she's been busy at work with Dayzee, but was enjoying her newest project. Ridge was proud of his mother for the work that she's done with the homeless. He was also pleased that she was now getting along with Brooke. Stephanie acknowledged that Brooke is a good person and Ridge agreed. "Brooke is a very special woman," he stated. "It doesn't surprise me at all that just about anyone could be drawn to her." Stephanie then mentioned how Taylor is concerned about Thomas and Brooke's relationship and felt guilty that she hasn't spent as much time with her friend. Ridge was sure that Taylor knew how much Stephanie cares for her; he was more concerned about Whip and didn't trust him. Stephanie assured Ridge that Whip loves Taylor. She was more worried about the fact that Taylor couldn't seem to accept the fact that her son is a grown man.
Later, Stephanie met up with Dayzee at the coffeehouse. Dayzee praised Pam for making dozens of lemon bars and Stephanie suggested that they give the baked goods away. The young woman had more good news when she shared that Anthony now has a place to live. Dayzee and Stephanie were thrilled that their business was working out so well. Eric soon joined them and congratulated Stephanie on doing such a great job. He noted that he was right about Brooke not being the bane of their existence. "That remains to be seen," Steph cracked.
Thomas sat alone and shirtless in his hotel room and thought about Brooke. Meanwhile, Ridge called Brooke and they had a video chat. Brooke reported that Thomas was doing a great job and Ridge praised their work. Thomas emerged from his room and eavesdropped on their conversation. Brooke filled him in on how she and Thomas had discussed how she'd stepped in as a mother when they'd thought Taylor had died. Thomas smiled to himself. Brooke went on about how she and Thomas have shared a "magical time" in Paris and the young man seems to be in a good place. Ridge was happy to hear this. Brooke signed off and was startled to see Thomas standing right behind her. He explained that he'd just received the new Taboo promo song. They listened to the jazzy tune together, in which the performer sang, "I'm under your spell." Uh oh...
In Paris, Brooke and Thomas prepared to go home. He admitted that he couldn't sleep because he was too excited about everything that had happened during the week. He wished that they could stay in France a little longer. They soon boarded their plane and were greeted by THE BACHELOR's Jake Pavelka, er, the pilot. Brooke was ready to go back to reality, but Thomas wasn't. He made them each a Bloody Mary and stated that he was glad he's had the chance to get to know her better. "It's changed my life," he declared. "This trip has brought everything into focus." He then went on about how everything now seemed to be possible.
Back in L.A, Amber enjoyed a romp with ... Marcus! After, she confided in him about her pregnancy. For a moment, Marcus looked stumped. She assured him that the child isn't his. He asked what she intended to do and she admitted that she wasn't sure whether she wanted to keep the baby or what. He concluded that she doesn't know who the father is. She filled him in on how one of the possible dads doesn't even remember their night together. Marcus realized that she meant Liam. "What did you do?" he whispered, but Amber didn't want to talk about it. Marcus recalled her being at Liam's party since he'd put her on the guest list. Amber again tried to end the conversation, but Marcus was more than willing to be her confidante.
Taylor dined at Dayzee's. Nick arrived and was happy to run into his ex. They sat down together and Taylor explained how Stephanie has been giving out work and apartments to the employees. Nick was impressed. He brought up Brooke and Thomas and her face clouded over. She went on one of he rants about how they shouldn't be working together. Nick understood, but noted that Brooke and Thomas seemed to be getting along well. Taylor shared her theory about Thomas having an Oedipal Complex. Nick didn't think that Brooke would let things get out of hand, but Taylor disagreed and believed that Brooke was encouraging Thomas.
From the plane, Brooke called Ridge and suggested that they go to Paris alone the next time. After, she told Thomas how proud Ridge is of him. Thomas agreed that they make a good team. Brooke acknowledged that he's become more mature and confident on their trip. She then yawned and went to take a nap. Thomas smiled and stared as she closed her eyes. He leaned in even closer to stare at her face and pulled the blanket up around her. He then kissed her gently on her lips. Brooke opened her eyes and was perturbed to see him standing over her.
