Recap written by Suzanne
The Forresters and Logans continue to argue about whether Ridge should let Eric does his grand finale designs as they prepare for the fashion showdown. At Forrester Creations, Thomas agrees with Hope that they should concentrate on Hope For the Future and the other parts of the company that are doing well. Douglas drops by to try to convince Hope to forgive Thomas so that they might be a family again, since she’s so sad about Liam’s leaving. She tells him not to worry about it. Thomas hears the tale end of their chat, when Douglas talks about how Thomas has changed and asks her to forgive him.
Carter wonders if Ridge is upset about RJ working with Eric instead of him. Ridge claims he’s not, although he didn’t foresee what happened. He’s just happy that RJ is designing, and he knows that someday, they’ll work together as well. Ridge talks about how much Brooke inspires him. He’s convinced that he will easily beat Eric.
At the Forrester mansion, Brooke is worried that Ridge and RJ will be competing against each other, but RJ assures her that he knows his dad loves him and is proud of him. Katie and Donna walk in. Katie is a bit peeved that no one told her about the fashion showdown, since she’s head of publicity. The Logan sisters discuss what’s going on. Brooke takes Ridge’s side, and Donna takes Eric’s side, naturally. Katie is still deciding but seems to be on Eric’s side.
In Ridge’s office, Thomas tells Ridge that he doesn’t understand why they’re doing the fashion showdown. Ridge tells him that neither he nor Eric is backing down. RJ comes in, so Thomas congratulates him for being the newest fashion designer of the company. RJ is there to pick up some supplies for Eric. Thomas asks him if he thinks the showdown is a good idea. He takes Ridge’s side, and RJ stands up for Eric, saying that his new designs are incredible. He reminds them that Eric started the company and is the heart and soul of it.
Ridge and RJ are left alone. They only argue for a minute. Ridge assures him that they’ll settle things on the runway. He wonders why RJ told Eric he would work with him, when he’d always turned Ridge down. RJ has a flashback to Eric telling him that he couldn’t grip a pencil or draw any more, so he needs RJ’s help. RJ just tells Ridge that he wants to be there for his granddad because he loves him. He and Ridge tell each other, “I love you” and then hug.
