Doctor: What’s the latest?

Paramedic: Bp 90 over 60. Pulse still thready.

Doctor: Get him into room three, stat. I’m sorry, I need you to stay out here.

Donna: No, no, no, I’m his– I’m– I’m his partner.

Doctor: The nurse will let you know when you can see him.

Donna: Doctor, doctor, please just tell me.

Doctor: Please let us– let us do our job.

Donna: Is he gonna make it?

Doctor: Someone stay with her.

Donna: No, please, please, please. Oh, god.

Bridget: This is dr. Forrester. I need to speak to my nurse about eric forrester as soon as possible, please.

Zende: I can’t believe granddad collapsed.

Thomas: Okay, this isn’t the first time though, right? I mean, granddad has collapsed before.

Katie: Yes, but he’s never lost consciousness for this long.

Hope: Has anyone heard from donna?

Katie: I’ve been texting her, but she’s not getting back to me.

Bridget: Okay. Thank you. He has been admitted, but he has not regained consciousness.

Thorne: Okay, I’m not waiting any longer. I’m going to the hospital.

Thomas: Yeah. Me too.

Bridget: Wait, hold on you guys. I know everyone wants to be there. We all do, but we need to give the doctors and the nurses space so that they can help him. We can’t all go.

Steffy: This can’t be the end for granddad. I’m not ready to say goodbye.

Donna: Oh, god. Please, god. Please save him. Save him. Please. Give us a miracle, please. Oh, my god, please.

Thorne: Any news?

Bridget: The attending doctor and nurses are with daddy. He’s still unconscious. His pulse is thready.

Hope: Thready? What–

Bridget: It just means it’s weak. I mean, I’ll be honest, it does not– it’s not good.

Steffy: God.

Thomas: Steff, what is it?

Steffy: I’m trying to get a hold of finn. I still can’t reach him. No, I’m– I’m sick of this. I’m heading to the hospital.

Nurse: Yes. May I help you?

Ridge: I’m looking for eric forrester.

Donna: Brooke, ridge. Hi. Oh, thank you.

Ridge: Hey. How is he?

Donna: Thank you. I– I– I don’t know. He’s– he’s in there. He’s still unconscious, I think. They didn’t say anything.

Doctor: Excuse me. Are– are you all here for eric forrester?

Ridge: I’m his son.

Doctor: I’m the attending doctor. I’ve been examining your father.

Ridge: Is he gonna survive this?

Doctor: I honestly can’t say. We’re doing everything we can, but your father’s condition is extremely critical.

Donna: I– I– I’m with you now. I’m just fatigued.

Thomas: Bridge. Still nothing?

Bridget: I just texted with the nurses. No update.

Zende: I can’t take it anymore. This waiting is killing me.

Bridget: I know, I know, it’s killing all of us, but we just– we have to wait, it’s all we can do. And pray for a miracle.

Rj: This party was a bad idea. We should– we shouldn’t have done this, right? He should have been resting. He should have been conserving his energy.

Hope: But eric was so happy. I mean, he was surrounded by family, which is what he wanted.

Carter: Almost. I was really worried when eric figured out that ridge won the fashion challenge and not him.

Rj: It made sense though, right? I mean, you know, it wasn’t a small gesture for dad to give granddad the win. He had to cancel the line. It was a line that he’d worked on for months. He had to give him the chair. I mean, yeah, he could– he could have felt betrayed, but instead, you know, he– he realized how much his son was willing to sacrifice for him and it showed him how much he loved him, right?

Bridget: Yeah. I just wish it was the same when he realized that we all knew his secret.

Thomas: How could we though? He’s always so hard to read. I mean, even at the end, he was laughing.

Bridget: Yeah. He was.

Thorne: Well, whatever he was feeling, I doubt it was joy.

Katie: You don’t know that.

Hope: Well, it was the last thing that happened before he collapsed. And now, he’s in the hospital, fighting for his life.

Doctor: Any changes?

Nurse: No.

Doctor: Will you go check on the panels? I want to give the family a moment. Go ahead. It’s just family.

Donna: Thank you.

Doctor: Let him know you’re here.

Ridge: Thank you, doctor.

Donna: Eric, are you there? It’s me, donna. Can you hear me? Eric, please, I’m not ready to lose you yet. Please come back to me. You’re the kindest, sweetest man I know. Please, I need you. I need you, eric.

[ Donna cries ]

Brooke: Eric… you and I, we go way back. We have created such an incredible bond. I can’t imagine you not here. Not in our lives. You know what? You have been there for me. You have supported me. You have championed me. And I love you for that. And I am going to do the same thing. I’m gonna tell you to keep on fighting. Oh, eric. Keep on fighting, please. Please.

Ridge: So, that’s what you didn’t want. We’re crying at your bedside. Didn’t want pity. Pa, this isn’t pity. This is love and you brought it on yourself. The great eric forrester. My dad… my friend. I love you. I love you very much.

Steffy: Oh, excuse me? Hi, I’m here to see eric forrester. I’m steffy forrester. I’m his granddaughter.

Nurse: Yes, I’m one of his nurses. Uh, your family’s with him now.

Steffy: Is he awake?

Nurse: I’m sorry, he’s– he hasn’t had any improvement. He’s still unconscious. Please, excuse me.

Steffy: Okay.

Finn: Steffy!

Steffy: Finn. Finn. Did you hear about my grandfather?

Finn: I know. I know.

Steffy: Have you seen him? Tell me he has a chance. Finn, I need you to be honest with me. Is he gonna make it? Finn, tell me.

Finn: Honey, I wish– look, I wish I could give you an answer, okay? But I can’t, not with certainty. But there is something, okay, that you should know. Something that I have been working on, for eric.

Ridge: When I was a little boy… I don’t know, six, maybe eight, I don’t remember… we took this family trip to ireland. Do you remember that? We all went for a long walk in the countryside. And I wandered off. I always wondered off, I guess. It’s– I wanted to see the world but, uh… I know I drove you and mom crazy. Yeah. And I ended up at this… weird hill and I was looking down at– at a– at a forest. And for some reason, the ground gave way and I fell. I rolled down that hill and– and hit something, a boulder, maybe a tree. I don’t– I don’t remember what it was, but it knocked the air out of me. I was hurt. I couldn’t move and I tried calling for you guys, but you couldn’t hear me and– and I– I just laid there for the longest time. It started getting dark. Started to rain. And for the first time in my life, I knew what fear felt like. Some kind of rustling coming from the bushes and I thought, “that’s– that’s gotta be a lion or a tiger or wolf or something come to get me,” and like the brave, young boy that I was, I… closed my eyes and waited for the end. And then, I heard your voice. “I got you, son. I got you, son,” you said, and you picked me up. Wrapped me up in your coat and you… took me away, and I thought, “where the hell did he come from? How did he know where I was?” You– you became a superhero that day and you know what? That never went away. I hate that you think that I wanted you out of the company. I don’t– I didn’t– I– I just wanted you to enjoy your retirement. That’s all. But then I see you behind that big desk. And you in– in charge and you’ve got your– your stapler and– and I– I just thought, “look at me, I’m a little boy again, and there he is my– my superhero dad who taught me everything I know. Everything I know about design, about being… about being a man.” Being a father and about being a friend. You lived a good life, man. And you– you love deeply, and you were loved in return and there is no greater gift. When things go wrong, your kids, they text you, they need you. But I promise you, we’re gonna be okay. It may not sound like it, but we’re gonna be fine. You don’t have to fight anymore. If you wanna go, you can go. It’s okay. It’s okay.

Zende: You hear from steffy?

Thomas: No, nothing yet.

[ Thorne sobs ]

Rj: Uncle thorne, are you okay?

Thorne: I can’t do this. I can’t do this any longer. This cannot be my father’s last night, it can’T. It can’T.

Steffy: Finn, I don’t understand, you– you’ve been working on something for my grandfather?

Finn: Ever since you told me about eric’s condition, I’ve been working on finding a treatment.

Steffy: That’s why you’ve been working all those late nights? Why you weren’t at granddad’s party? So– so what is it? Have you figured something out? A way to– a way to save granddad?

Ridge: Hey, I didn’t know you were here. Hi.

Steffy: How’s granddad?

Ridge: Oh. Nothing’s changed. It’s, uh, it’s not good.

Steffy: Tell them.

Brooke: Tell us what?

Steffy: Finn’s been working on a treatment to save granddad.

Donna: Really?

Ridge: What kind of treatment?

Finn: Okay, I– look, I don’t want to get too technical because it’s– it’s cutting edge. Experimental.

Ridge: Experimental?

Finn: Yes. Yes. And– and it wouldn’t be my first or second resort–

Ridge: Do you have something that can save my dad?

Finn: Look, I’m saying that there is a chance. Because eric’s condition it’s– it– it’s extremely grave. So, there are no guarantees.

Hope: Have you, um, given any thought to how we might break this news to douglas?

Thomas: Yeah, I don’t know. I hope there isn’t any news to break, right? Granddad wakes up and the doctors are able to help him and, um, then we just tell douglas that his great-grandpa was a little sick.

Hope: And if they can’t help him?

Thomas: I don’t know. But, uh, we’ll get through it together.

Carter: So, what did donna say?

Katie: Just that brooke and ridge and steffy are all at the hospital?

Zende: I’m going to the hospital.

Rj: I’m going too. Why–

Bridget: Guys, honestly, how many times do I have to tell you? Us all there is not gonna help anything. Believe me, I know you want to be there. We all do. But us anxious and emotional? It’s not gonna help the doctors. We’ll just be flagging down the nurses, taking them away from dad.

Zende: I just want to be there. I want granddad to know how much I love him.

Bridget: We all do.

Rj: Bridget, as– as a doctor, what do you think his chances are right now?

Bridget: I’m not sure if there’s anything they can do for him.

Ridge: Do you have something to save my dad? Yes or no?

Finn: I– I’ve been consumed with eric’s case the past several weeks.

Donna: An– and you found– you found something?

Finn: I did. Yeah. But unfortunately, it is not some magic bullet, okay? I wish I could say without a doubt that this treatment would work, but I can’T. Like I said, there are no guarantees. There really aren’T. And we would be taking a big chance.

Ridge: Big chance on what? What– what– what’s the treatment?

Finn: It’s a new technology that cleanses the blood. That, along with a transplant, should– no, it could make a difference for eric.

Donna: A transplant? Wha–

Finn: Something’s become available and the combination of these two treatments might possibly work.

Ridge: Might possibly work?

Finn: Yeah, I can’t give any–

Ridge: No guarantees. We got it.

Donna: I– I don’t want eric to be in any pain. Is this– is it painful?

Finn: Unfortunately, these two treatments, they’re– they’re not gonna be without some discomfort. And a long road to recovery. Look, dr. Colby and i have spoken and he has given me the case. So, I have to ask, is this treatment option something you would like to pursue? Ridge, you have the medical power of attorney appointed by eric. And I can’t imagine how hard this is for you, but you are the one that’s gonna have to make this decision. So, do we go all out, try to save eric? Again, with no certainty of the outcome. Or do we transfer eric to comfort care and let him go?

Ridge: I, um… I love my dad so much. Too much to put him through all this. We gotta let him go.

Donna: What?

Ridge: Let him die in peace.
