[ Dramatic music ]

Luna: It’s not what you think, mom. I didn’t– I didn’t wake up in rj’s bed this morning. I woke up in zende’S.

Poppy: Could someone have drugged you?

Luna: No, no, I mean I was at the forrester house, not a club.

Poppy: How much did you have to eat?

Luna: Like barely anything. I probably had more mints than anything else.

Poppy: Mints? You can’t tell him.

Luna: I have to tell him.

Poppy: Okay, but you didn’t cheat. It wasn’t a betrayal. You were in an altered state.

Luna: I slept with another man, mom. How it happened doesn’t matter.

[ Knock on door ]

Zende: Have you heard from luna? Did she tell rj?

Rj: Wow, look at you. Hi. You wanna go for a morning walk on the beach? It looks really nice out there.

Luna: Sure, okay.

Rj: It’s not okay. I mean, you– you’re obviously not feeling like yourself.

Luna: I’m sorry, rj, I just–

Rj: No, no, no. Don’t be sorry. It’s okay. It’s okay. I just wanted to be with you last night. It was nice, you know, just being able to hold you. You falling asleep in my arms. I’m just guessing you didn’t get a lot of sleep, though. Look, I know a lot was on your mind last night, okay? And I’m sensing that there still is.

Luna: Oh, my god. What happened? What am I doing here?

Zende: That’s what i asked myself when you surprised me here last night.

Rj: Whatever’s going on, you don’t got to worry about it. It’s going to be all right. I love you. Come here.

Hope: It’s very… provocative.

Thomas: Too provocative?

Hope: Maybe. Definitely too provocative for hope for the future, but I have a feeling that’s not what you were thinking about when you were designing this.

Thomas: What gave me away?

Hope: Hm… something about the silhouette evokes A… raw sensuality.

Thomas: You have a problem with raw sensuality?

Thomas: You know, my granddad’s right about us.

Hope: How so?

Thomas: Oh, it’s just what he said earlier when we were with him. Or even the night he collapsed. He said that we’re not scandalous, the two of us. He also sees how happy I am with you. How happy we both are. And my granddad knows better than anyone, it doesn’t make sense to postpone happiness. Life’s too short for that.

Poppy: You shouldn’t just show up here like this.

Zende: You want me to keep my distance? You do realize that’s next to impossible since luna and I literally work together?

Poppy: Okay, yes, but–

Zende: Is she here?

Poppy: No.

Zende: She didn’t come home last night? Have you heard from her?

Poppy: Obviously, you haven’t either.

Zende: What if she told rj? What if he knows?

Poppy: About what you did that night?

Zende: What I did? I did not take advantage of her! She agrees! You’re the one who drugged your own daughter!

Poppy: Yes, well… okay, we’re both on edge. And neither of us want luna to destroy her life and future with rj over one terrible mistake.

Luna: I’m sorry.

Rj: No, you have nothing to be sorry about. Look, um… I know– I know we gotta get going soon, but I just want you to know that I love you. And this is– this is what I’m focused on right now. Just us, okay? And I just want to know what’s going on because I just want to help you. I promise you, nothing is gonna come between us. Ever. Special k is oven-toasted to crisp perfection

Thomas: You know we’re lucky, having granddad’s support. You know, your mom actually looks up to him. Maybe– maybe he could help us convince her to be on our side.

Hope: You mean put eric in the middle between his own grandson and a woman who will always hold a very, very special place in his heart?

Thomas: Okay, it’s a bad idea. Right. Okay, that’s– that’s fine. All I really wanted was my granddad’s blessing. You know, that means everything to me. Nope, strike that. You mean everything to me.

Hope: Mm-hmm. You keep talking like that, we aren’t going to get a lot of work done.

Thomas: If you’re thinking about work, then I’m doing something terribly wrong.

Hope: No, you’re not doing anything wrong.

Rj: Oh, hey! Hi! Sorry. I, uh… my bad. So that’s what it’s like to be on the other side of this. I didn’t know you two were…

Thomas: Working.

Hope: Yeah, yeah. And we were just taking a– a quick break.

Thomas: Just a break.

Rj: You know, that’s really funny because that’s exactly– it’s like word for word what I say when luna and i get interrupted. That’s funny.

Hope: Speaking of.

Thomas: Speaking of. Yeah, where is luna?

Hope: Yeah, did she, uh, did she ride in with you?

Rj: Did she ride in with me? Is this your really subtle way of asking me if luna spent the night with me last night?

Thomas: No, we just– we don’t care.

Hope: Nope, nope.

Thomas: We don’t wanna know.

Hope: No, you are two adults and we would never pry.

Thomas: Never.

Rj: I just– I want to spend every second of every day with this girl. And it’s– it’s crazy. When we’re apart, I’M…

Thomas: Just thinking about the next time you get to be with her. I know what that’s like.

Rj: Yeah. I mean, because I’ve like I’ve had other girlfriends, but this is just… it’s completely different because of who luna is.

Hope: Well, it sounds like you two are in a very good place.

Thomas: Yeah.

Rj: Yeah, yeah and I think it’s only gonna get better.

Poppy: Rj would never understand.

Zende: That is why luna cannot tell him what happened between us. The fallout? I don’t even want to go there.

Poppy: Well, neither do I. But knowing my daughter and how much she values the truth–

Zende: Luna should have never been in this situation and she wouldn’t have been if you–

Poppy: If it weren’t for me and my special mints. Zende, I am aware.

Zende: You’re a mother. I don’t get how you could be so irresponsible.

Poppy: I didn’t do it on purpose! I would never intentionally harm my daughter. I love her more than I love my own life.

Zende: I’m not questioning that, but… you took something precious from her, poppy. From me, too. I really do care about luna. I would have liked to see where this could go, I–

Poppy: Okay, will you just put that out of your mind right now? Luna loves rj and he adores her and this will not ruin things for them.

Zende: The only way it won’t is if…

Luna: Zende, what are you doing here?

Poppy: Honey, you’re home. I was texting you all night and this morning. You spent the night with rj?

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: I was so worried about you, honey.

Zende: We both were.

Thomas: Please tell me that everything’s okay. That you and rj, that– that your relationship is okay. I know that you were thinking about telling him. But, sweetheart, if you do… you have to protect what you found with him. Protect his heart. Protect yours. You two have so much promise together as a couple. Don’t jeopardize it by–

Luna: By what, mom? By being honest with him?

Poppy: You’re not saying–

Luna: No, mom. I didn’t tell rj. And I feel awful.

Did you know you waste

200 hours a year

Hope: Look at you. You can’t stop smiling, can you?

Rj: I don’t know. Thinking about luna does that to me.

Thomas: Oh, puppy love.

Rj: Stop.

Hope: I don’t know. You two have had some very special moments lately.

Rj: I will admit, though, um. Something’s been a little bit off recently.

Thomas: How so?

Rj: I don’t know. She’s just been kind of within herself.

Hope: Well, have you tried talking to her about it?

Rj: Yes. I– I didn’t want to push. I just told her that I’m here for her if she needs me.

Hope: I know she appreciates having your support. I’m sure she just has a lot going on right now.

Rj: And that’s why I’m trying to be as understanding as I can.

Thomas: From what I’ve seen? You two, how you act around each other, the way that you talk about her, I think that you have what it takes to go the distance.

Hope: I think we all think that.

Rj: I think you’re right. I think we do have a real future ahead of us.

Luna: Rj thinks that I’m so pure and innocent. He thinks that I’m someone he can trust.

Poppy: And you are, honey. You’re all those things and more. That’s why rj loves you so much.

Luna: But if he knew what happened? If rj knew about what happened between us zende?

Poppy: There’s no reason to tell–

Luna: No reason? Mom, what about honesty? Or– or decency? Or integrity? Oh, right. I mean, who am I kidding? I’m talking to the mother who accidentally drugged her own daughter, so…

Poppy: Luna, I told you–

Luna: I know what you told me, mom. I know that you’re horrified about what happened.

Poppy: Yes, and I am horrified. But please, please don’t make a bad situation infinitely worse by confessing to rj. Why take that risk?

Luna: We’ve always been so close, you and I. That was our power. But after what happened, and now knowing why it happened, I don’t know if we’ll ever be that close again. Or if it’s even possible.

Poppy: Oh, sweetheart. Please.

Luna: Just go. Now, please. I want a moment alone with zende.

Poppy: You don’t know that that’s why–

Luna: Oh my god, mom. For the last time, zende did not take advantage of me. This was all you. All you and your mints.

Zende: I hate what this is doing to you. If I could take it all back, I would. But since I know that’s not possible, maybe the only thing to do is to move forward. And I think I know a way how. A way for you not to feel so tormented about our night together. -We’re done. -What about these?

Thomas: Ah, finally, privacy.

Hope: Mm-hmm

Luna: You’re everything I ever imagined. So kind and handsome. Who understands me and trusts and respects me. And loves me.

Rj: I love you.

Luna: I love you too.

Luna: I know you hate secrets. And I definitely hate this secret. When I’m with rj, and he’s telling me how much he loves and trusts me, like, I feel like such a fraud.

Zende: You are not a fraud. You are wonderful. And none of what has happened has been your fault. You didn’t do anything wrong.

Luna: Knowingly, no. That doesn’t change what happened, zende. You and I slept together. I mean, nothing is ever gonna be the same after this.

Zende: Like I said, I hate seeing you like this. You don’t deserve it. You are so amazing. You came into forrester, and you caught everyone’s eye. Not just rj’s, but mine too. Our night together, I realize now that you’d taken those mints and thought I was rj, but I knew that I was with you. I knew how incredible it felt from the moment I had you in my arms. Luna, I am crazy about you. And… um… despite everything, I have always thought that things happen for a reason. And the more I think about it, the more I think this might’ve happened for a reason as well. Maybe telling rj will make it easier.

Luna: Make what easier?

Zende: Easier for us to be together. I have felt this connection with you. And not just our night together, we’ve spent so much time together. I’ve opened up to you, and– and you’ve listened. I mean, I– I thought that we would be so incredible together. All this guilt and torment that you’re feeling, it will disappear. I know it will. Because I will spend every moment of every day making sure it does by making you happy. Give me a chance, luna. Give us a chance. Leave him. Leave rj. Be with me.

Rj: You know you can tell me anything, right? Luna, I can clearly see that you’re upset. Just tell me this isn’t me. Did I do something wrong?

Luna: No.

Rj: Well, maybe I was texting you too much and you just wanted to be alone. But I– I’m sorry, I was just really concerned because I’m so used to you always texting me back. It was really unlike you. No, I’M… I’m not upset with you.

Rj: Okay, then what? You said that I needed to know something about last night?

Zende: Hello, luna.

Luna: Hi, you.

Luna: I– I– I saw rj. It was him. He was here. He’s the only guy that I’ve ever… I don’t understand. This doesn’t make any sense.

[ Door slams ]

Zende: Poppy, what are you doing here?

Poppy: We’re alone now. I need to know exactly what happened last night with my daughter.

Deacon: Hey, sweetheart. I haven’t seen you in a while.

Hope: Yeah. And sadly, we both know why.

Deacon: Uh-oh.

Hope: Uh-oh is right. Dad, I’m here to make one last appeal. I miss you. End your relationship with sheila.

Hope: I mean, do you miss me? Dad, do you miss the kids?

Deacon: Of course, I do. I miss you more than anything.

Hope: Okay, so what is it then? What– what is the pull to sheila that’s stronger than your want to– want to be with us? I mean, dad, do you know how hurtful that is? I mean, you are choosing an actual psychopath over your own family.

Poppy: Luna is in love with rj. She had no intention of being with you.

Zende: I would never take advantage of someone. I will say it as many times as you need to hear it. I thought luna reached out to me. She was waiting for me when I came home. I had no idea that luna wasn’t herself. She seemed into it, let alone that she thought I was rj. Now, all because of your so-called mints.

Luna: All because of your disgusting mints, mom. Now our relationship is tainted.

Poppy: Honey, no.

Luna: Yes, mom, it is.

Zende: I respect you wanting to be truthful. But your mother’s right. There is absolutely no reason rj needs to know.

Rj: Luna, look at me. Whatever it is that you gotta tell me, just know I love you. And that you’re safe, and that I’m always gonna be here for you. Nothing you could ever do is gonna change that. Just please tell me what’s going on.

Luna: You have no idea how much I wish I stayed at that party. And came back here with you last night.

Hope: Dad, I don’t know how else to frame this for you, to get you to understand, but… dad, I love you.

Deacon: I love you, too.

Hope: Okay, so why are you doing the one thing that you know is going to drive a wedge between us? I don’t understand, dad. There’s– there’s millions of women in los angeles. Millions. That– that aren’t sheila. That aren’t someone who– who could potentially turn on a dime and hurt one of us.

Deacon: She wouldn’t do that.

Hope: You don’t know that. And there are children involved, so why even risk it? Please, put an end to it. I don’t understand.

Sheila: I, uh, I couldn’t help but overhear.

Deacon: Hey, babe. I’m sorry. I didn’t want you to have to…

Hope: No, dad, don’t apologize. Please, not on my behalf, because I meant every word.

Deacon: So, uh, where did you take off to?

Sheila: I just needed to see someone.

Deacon: Really? Who?

Sheila: Just someone from my past. No– no one important, really, but hope… I know how much you hate to see your father and me together. And I am sorry you feel that way. I truly am sorry. But the fact remains, we are in a committed relationship. We love one another. Could you please find it in your heart to just give me a chance?

Hope: Well, the fact remains, sheila, I will never be able to accept that. Because I don’t believe that you have changed. I don’t think you are capable. I think you are pulling one over on my dad. And I love him too much to watch him risk destroying the life that he has worked so hard for for you. Dad, I’m going to fight for us. For our family. And I am not going to lose you to her.

Zende: None of last night would’ve happened. None of it. If you hadn’t been so careless with your drug-laced mints.

Poppy: Do you think I’m not horrified by what happened? I still can’t believe that luna’s mints got mixed up with mine.

Zende: Look, you’re upset. I am too. I care about luna. I would have loved nothing more than to be the man in her life, but… that’s rj. I would have never inserted myself in that situation if I hadn’t believed that she wanted me to. Now it’s just a big mess.

Poppy: Yeah, it’s about to get messier.

Zende: What does that mean?

Poppy: I’m afraid that luna’s gonna tell rj what happened, risking everything they could have together.

Rj: I mean, I wish we could’ve been together last night too. I couldn’t believe how much I missed you.

Luna: I missed you too. Way more than you know.

Rj: Luna, is that what you’re upset about? That we missed a night together? Because I think we’re gonna have a lot more. I mean, I’m just saying.

Luna: I hope so.

Rj: Why would there be any doubt? Luna… seriously, did I– did I do something wrong?

Luna: No, no, you’re perfect.

Rj: No, come on. I don’t know about that.

Luna: I do. I mean, you’re so sweet and kind, loving.

Rj: You– you’re all those things. And more, luna. Like I said, like I got back here at the apartment and I was thinking about you. Alone, in your bed.

Luna: You’re always so fun. Zende? Wait, where’s rj? Rj?

>I just wished I could’ve been with you.

Luna: If you were, everything would be so different. Head & shoulders is launching something huge.

Sheila: I– I know you don’t believe I’ve changed, but I– I can prove it to you. Okay, but just open that door a little bit.

Hope: You know what? Forget it. No, hope. Please. You’re kind. You’re compassionate. Why can’t you extend that to me?

Hope: Because you don’t deserve it, sheila. I mean, you know what this is, right? This is the I’ve changed speech, which I have heard from many people over the years. But no, you might have my dad fooled, but I see you clearly. You are the same manipulative, lying killer that you have always been.

Deacon: Okay, hope, please. Come on.

Hope: No, dad, it is true. You want to show me that you’ve changed?

Sheila: Yes, I do.

Hope: Okay, then. Show some growth… and walk away. End the relationship, because clearly my dad isn’t capable of doing it. But if you actually care about him, if you actually are in love with my father like you say you are, you will see what your relationship is costing him. And it is costing him his family, a relationship with his daughter, a relationship with his grandchildren, which I know that you understand.

Deacon: Okay. So please, sheila, he’s lost enough time already.

Deacon: Let’s– let’s just leave this right here for now.

Hope: Yeah.

Deacon: I promise I will speak with you, but right now I need to speak with sheila alone.

Sheila: Don’t, deacon. Don’t let hope get to you.

Poppy: I love that luna is such a good person. But sometimes my daughter can be too honest for her own good. She could lose the only man she ever loved.

Zende: Not could. Will. I know rj. He won’t understand. Especially since I’m involved. This will be a deal breaker. This isn’t even her fault. It’s because of you and your damn mints. I can’t help worrying… that luna’s about to lose everything.

Rj: Luna, if you just tell me what’s bothering you, we could fix this. Together. You could share with me anything. Anything. We’re– we’re a team. I’m– I’m just here to help you. Wait, is this about your first time, and–

Luna: No, no, never.

Rj: So you’re not having regrets about that, or…

Luna: I mean, I have regrets, but they’re not about you.

Rj: Hey. I’m so in love with you. And it means everything to me that you hate being apart as much as I do. And if it were up to me, we’d never spend another night apart.

Sheila: Don’t let hope come between us.

Deacon: I’m not doing that.

Sheila: Okay. Good. Because I know hope wields an enormous amount of influence with you, and I don’t think she has too high of an opinion of me.

Deacon: Well, look at you putting things all nicely.

Sheila: Still… you stick by me. You always have. It’s one of the reasons I fell in love with you. And I can’t wait. I can’t wait for the world to know that the feeling is mutual. I cannot wait for the day that we can tell everyone that you proposed to me.

Deacon: Yeah, um… about that. I just– I think that maybe the news about my proposal, you know, shouldn’t come out in advance.

Sheila: Wait, what are you…

Deacon: That I– I– listen, I’m not ending our relationship. Okay? I’m just– I’m just trying to say–

Sheila: No, what are you– what are you trying to say?

Deacon: Sheila, I’m talking about hope. I’m talking about the effect that us getting married would have on my daughter. Sheila, I barely see hope as it is. My contact with– with douglas and beth, it’s hit and miss. If you were my wife, hope would cut me off completely. I would never see my daughter or my grandkids again.

Sheila: Are you saying you don’t want to marry me?

Deacon: Not yet. Not-not now.

Sheila: Not ever?

Deacon: Sheila, the last thing that I want to do in this world is hurt you. But I cannot just keep ignoring what hope’s saying to me. Please tell me you understand.

Sheila: You don’t wanna hurt me? You just did.

Zende: What?

Poppy: You think I’m a terrible mother, don’t you?

Zende: Does it matter what I think?

Poppy: In the long run, no. But since we’re stuck in this situation, we might as well have our cards on the table.

Zende: Okay. Since you asked.

Poppy: Mm-hmm…

Zende: I don’t think you’re a terrible anything. I don’t know you. But I know luna, and she is amazing. You raised her by yourself, so, you had to have had a lot to do with that. I also think that you’re careless and irresponsible.

Poppy: Okay, okay. You don’t have to say it again. I am painfully aware. My daughter wouldn’t have gone through any of this if it weren’t for me. And I still can’t believe that luna accidentally took my mints and ended up in bed with you.

Zende: I’m sorry.

Poppy: I am too. What I won’t accept is that one innocent, albeit horrible mistake, could destroy luna and rj’s relationship.

Rj: You know, I used to hear growing up that love comes when you least expect it. That’s been you. Really. Like the last thing on my mind was getting in a serious relationship. And then there you are, at my granddad’s house, and you’re just this beautiful, stunning woman, and you’re funny, and you’re kind. You’re so honest, and there’s this purity about you that I just love. I know I’m going on and on, but I just– I love you. I do. And nothing could change that.

Luna: I feel the same way. I mean, I– I never thought that I could love someone like this. And the last thing that I ever want to do is hurt you. You know, what we’ve found together, it means the world to me. And I never want to lose you.

Rj: You’re never going to lose me.

Luna: Can you say that one more time? I really need to hear it.

Rj: You’re never gonna lose me.

Luna: Thank you.

Poppy: There’s no reason to tell rj.

Luna: He deserves to know.

Poppy: But why take that risk? You could mess everything up.

Luna: “Could”? Mom, no, I already have. I messed it all up as soon as I got into zende’s bed.

Poppy: Yes, ’cause you didn’t know what you were doing! That the mints you took could–

Luna: Could? Could what? Make me hallucinate? No, mom. I thought they’d do what mints do. I didn’t know that I– I had your mints that are laced with god knows what.

Poppy: Yes, because I take one, luna! And definitely not with alcohol.

Luna: Okay…

Poppy: No, luna, I am sorry. I am so, so sorry.

Luna: I thought I was with rj, mom. That’s how out of it I was. That’s what your little drug habit did to me. It ended up with me sleeping with zende. I spent the night with him, cuddled up in his arms, thinking that he was my boyfriend, mom.

Poppy: Yes, because of me. Okay, this is all my fault. Don’t turn a terrible mistake, my terrible mistake, into something so much worse, okay? Rj doesn’t need to know anything about what happened last night.

Thomas: Wow, look at that pencil fly. Didn’t know anyone could sketch so fast.

Rj: Yeah. Just trying to get this idea on paper as quickly as I can.

Hope: Oh, you mean before it escapes your brain?

Rj: Yeah, sure.

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: I– I don’t know. I think, maybe, I don’t know, does someone have other plans?

Rj: Um… yes, I do, actually. I do have plans. I am meeting luna at the beach house and I’m trying to set up a special date for tonight, and I am trying to leave early to do that, so yes.

Hope: Well, lucky luna.

Thomas: And lucky rj. Hey, look, we’ve, uh– we’ve seen the positive effect she’s had on you lately.

Hope: Yeah. It’s been really nice to watch the two of you. You’re a sweet couple.

Luna: You want me to lie to rj about this?

Poppy: You’re not really lying. You didn’t mean to.

[ Knock on door ] Oh, no. That’s probably him.

Luna: Probably. Go. Zende.

Zende: I know I’m probably the last person you wanna see right now. I’m just– I’ve been so worried, and, uh, I just, um– I know you’ve been freaking out, and honestly, I have too. I just– I can’t have you thinking that last night, that– that what we shared, that somehow I took advantage of you–

Luna: Mom, what are you doing?

Poppy: I want the truth. Did you take advantage of my daughter last night? Answer me!

Zende: Absolutely not! No, no, no! We spoke earlier in the night, and I told her that I was across the courtyard, and then there she was, waiting for me. You– you– you told her, right?

Luna: Yes, yes.

Zende: I didn’t– I wasn’t trying to. I didn’t–

Luna: Yes, I remember enough to know that you did nothing wrong. I just– I just really thought that you were rj. Mom, come on, I told you this. My mom knows all about what happened last night. More than you think. Mom, we owe zende an explanation.

Rj: Is it that obvious how close luna and I are getting?

Hope: Mmm, don’t worry. Everyone approves.

Thomas: Yeah, everyone approves. Has that ever happened in this family before? Like, where everyone is just on board from the beginning?

Rj: I don’t think so. No. Never.

[ All laughing ] I mean, there’s not really anything to object to with luna. I mean, she’s– she’s kind, she’s funny, she’s beautiful. I’m a lucky guy.

Luna: I’m sorry. I thought you were rj. I really– I really did.

Zende: I– I wish I could understand how. The last thing– the last thing I would want for our first time would be for her to think that I was someone else. All I know is that luna was there when I walked in. She told me that she had been waiting for me. You– you said that I’m owed an explanation?

Luna: Listen, I didn’t understand why I spent the night thinking you were rj… until I talked to my mom about it. What happened between us, it’s all her fault.

Zende: Your mother?

Luna: Yeah. My mother and her mints. In all my travels I’ve never seen such dry skin.

Rj: I tried to make it as romantic as possible considering it was her, um…

Thomas: Oh! Okay.

Rj: I’ve– I’ve revealed way too much to you.

Hope: Um, yeah. I– I’m gonna table this conversation, you know, for a different time, a different place, a different conversation that doesn’t involve me. Um… but I will say, as a woman, that the first time is– is a bit of a big deal and should be treated with respect.

Rj: I know, I get that, and– and– and I respect that. That’s why I, like– I tried to make everything just as perfect as I possibly could.

Hope: All right. Well, I’m sure… it was great, and you are a nice, caring guy, and I am happy for you both. And let’s change the subject, please.

Rj: Yeah, no– let’s– no, but she is– I wanna emphasize though, she’s– she’s amazing. I’m thinking about her, like, all of the time. I just can’t wait to see her again.

Thomas: Would you look at that guy? He has got it bad. You’re in love.

Luna: Well, are you gonna tell him, or am I?

Zende: You said something about mints?

Poppy: Recreational. I take them every now and then to take the edge off.

Luna: Those mints do a lot more than just take the edge off, mom.

Poppy: That’s because I have one, luna. One. I don’t pop two or three at a time all night long. And because I’ve taken them for a while, I’ve, uh, you know, built up a tolerance. But yeah, someone who hasn’t had it before, it could have a much bigger effect. Especially if you mix it with alcohol.

Zende: I– I am not following. Why are we talking about your mother’s mints?

Poppy: Because luna likes mints too. Normal ones. And somehow, mine got mixed up with hers.

Zende: Are you– are you saying you were high last night?

Luna: Yeah. I ate quite a lot of them. You know, ’cause I don’t know. I thought they were regular mints. I thought that I was just keeping my breath fresh. But little did I know.

[ Zende laughing ] I started getting really tired and– and then fuzzy headed, so I– I told rj that I have to go home.

Zende: And this is why you left early.

Luna: Yeah. I mean, I was exhausted. And so thirsty. Suddenly so thirsty. I’m guessing that’s a side effect or something.

Poppy: It can be. Yeah.

Luna: And so I walked outside to call a ride. That’s when I saw the water bottles in the guest house. I literally just went in and I downed the whole thing. I don’t remember sitting down or getting in your bed, but… I don’t know. I guess it makes sense because of how tired I was.

Zende: Are you, um, you’re– you’re telling me that you were drugged by your own mother?

Luna: Yeah. And that’s why I thought you were rj. ‘Cause I was, like, hallucinating or something.

Zende: How could you do this to her?

Poppy: I am horrified! Trust me!

Zende: Yeah, you should be! I mean, you didn’t just take something from luna. You took from me too. I really, really like your daughter. And I’ve been hoping, I– I’ve been– I thought that maybe we might share something beautiful, but… not like this.

Luna: Okay, great. Now zende knows. It’s time for someone else to know too. I have to tell rj.

A year after a heart attack,

Rj: In love? Yeah. Yeah, I totally am. But, hey, you know what? She is too.

Hope: Wait, wait, wait. You– you said it to each other?

Rj: Yeah.

Hope: Look, I– I think it’s– it’s wonderful. And in all seriousness, I– I have been working here with her for a while now, and I have to say, you did great. She’s so wonderful.

Rj: I definitely feel like I’m a– I’m a very fortunate guy.

Hope: Luna’s pretty fortunate too, to have such a caring, honest guy.

Rj: Yeah. I mean, I try. But luna, she’s just– she’s the epitome of honesty. Like, I think that’s one of the reasons why I’m so attracted to her. It’s just so easy for me to trust her.

Thomas: Is that sketch finished?

Rj: Yeah. Why?

Thomas: Get out of here.

Rj: Yeah.

Luna: I’m telling rj what happened.

Poppy: You can’T.

Luna: I have to, mom. Rj thinks that I’m– I’m a good person, and he believes in me. Like– like, when he looks at me, he sees someone that’s honest and committed and sweet and pure.

Poppy: You are.

Luna: I was. Our relationship was, but not anymore. Not after last night.

Poppy: No, don’t say that.

Luna: All because of your disgusting mints, mom. Now our relationship is tainted.

Poppy: Honey, no.

Luna: Yes, mom. It is. It’s ruined. I mean, I can’t believe that this is happening right now. All because of you and your damn drugs. Like, I can– I can barely look at you right now.

Zende: As much as I wanted what happened between us– I would hope for it– to find out why it happened? Look, I respect you wanting to be truthful, but your mother’s right. There is absolutely no reason rj needs to know.

Luna: Well, what about trust?

Zende: And telling him would break it!

Luna: Well, maybe rj would understand. Like, he’d appreciate that I’m confiding in him.

Zende: No one would understand, luna! No one would understand at all, ever. Not– I can hardly understand this. Look, telling him, you will just lose him. You will lose your reputation too. It’s just– telling him will do no good. It will just hurt you.

Poppy: And not to mention hurt rj too, and I know you don’t want that. Zende’s right.

Luna: Oh, my god, none of you guys understand what it’s like–

Poppy: No, honey, he’s right. He’s right. Look at me. Look at me. Rj’s expecting you. Go to him. Hug him. Kiss him. Remind yourself everything you’d be giving up if you told him. Rj doesn’t even know anything what happened last night. It was just a horrible mistake. Don’t say a word. Moving forward with node-positive

Hope: You know, all this talk about romance and love, it’s really got me thinking.

Thomas: Yeah?

Hope: Mm-hmm. About you. And this ring.

Luna: I saw rj. It was him. He was here. I don’t understand. This doesn’t make any sense. I saw his face. How could I make that up?

Zende: Are you saying you were high last night?

Luna: And that’s why I thought you were rj. I was like hallucinating or something. I have to tell rj.

[ Knock on door ]

Rj: Hi. Are you feeling better?

Luna: Um… not entirely.

Rj: Okay. Is there anything I can do to help? Um, I know you were with your mom earlier, right? You know, I know what it’s like when you’re sick and your mom takes care of you. It’s the best feeling in the world. I was actually with mine earlier, um, when we were talking and I was just, uh, I was just telling her I was worried about you, you know? Um, she was reassuring me that poppy would be taking good care of you. You two are close. Nozawa power, right? Luna, look at me. What’s going on? Does it have something to do with the party last night?

Luna: Yeah.

Rj: Well, I mean, if you’re– if you’re feeling guilty, don’T. I’m– I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. I shouldn’t have asked you to stay at the party. I mean, you were tired. You wanted to go home and everybody totally got it. I mean, you know, we all wanted you to stay. Of course, we all missed you, me most of all. And I, um, I– I don’t know. I just, I got back here and I thought about you, you know, at your apartment alone and I wish you were here and I could wrap you up in my arms.

Luna: Yeah, you have no idea how much I wish I was with you last night.

Rj: It’s– it’s okay. You’re here. You’re here. Come here. It’s okay. Everything’s all right. Hey, look at me. You’re so beautiful. And I’m– I’m so lucky to have you in my life.

Luna: It was rj’s face, mom. He was there and I thought that he was the one in bed with me and that’s why I did what I did. What are you telling me? That me waking up in zende’s bed this morning was because of you and your mints?

Poppy: It’s my fault. It’s all my fault.

Rj: Luna, come on, talk to me. What’s going on? You could tell me anything, anything at all.

Luna: I want to believe that.

Rj: You can. You can believe it. I’m here. I’m right here, okay? And all– all I want to do is help you. Tell me.

Luna: I love you so much and I always want to be honest with you and… there’s something that I need to tell you. Something that you need to know about last night.

[dramatic music]

Luna: What happened to me last night? I– I wasn’t sick or tired. It was those!

Poppy: I’m so sorry, baby.

Luna: The reason why I ended up with zende and thought it was rj is because of– is because of you, mom? Because of you and your mints?

Liam: Hello, rj.

Rj: Liam! Hey, what’s– what’s that?

Liam: Uh, it’s kelly’S. She, uh, she left her soccer stuff in my car. I’m dropping it off for her mom.

Rj: Oh, steffy’s in a meeting.

Liam: Yeah, no, I know. Can I leave it here?

Rj: Yeah, yeah, put it right there.

Liam: Actually, I was kind of hoping I’d run into you.

Rj: Uh, me. Why– why me?

Liam: To pick your brain about something potentially awkward, namely the fact that my dad is super into your girlfriend’s mom.

Eric: Well, I know I’m the old married man here, but I do remember what it’s like to be your age, rj’s, ridge’s, for that matter. Going out on the town, never knowing how any particular evening was going to end up. It’s an exciting time. Although, I know that sooner or later, you start to wonder if, uh, you might be able to find something more fulfilling. Maybe find that one special person. Or maybe you already have.

Eric: Anyone new in your life?

Zende: I thought so, but, um, I think I read the situation all wrong.

Eric: Well, that can happen.

Zende: Nothing like this has ever happened to me. Luna?

Luna: Hi, you.

Zende: You’re here.

Luna: Waiting for you. I don’t understand. This doesn’t make any sense. Oh, my god, what have I done?

Zende: I am so sorry about whatever it is that is happening right now. I would never take advantage of you.

Luna: Yes, I know that. I know. I believe you. I remember enough to know that. How could I? Rj loves me and– and– and trusts me and this is what I do to him?

Zende: You were right. I did meet someone special. But, it’s not going to work out.

Liam: You should, uh, you should hear the way my dad talks about poppy.

Rj: What’s he said?

Liam: Good things. Only good things. Really, really, really good things, actually. However, despite my constant petitioning, I’ve yet to be granted an introduction with the woman, which is why I’m asking you what your read is on her.

Poppy: I was always so careful. I never wanted anything like this, but somehow you ended up with my mints.

Luna: Except they’re not just mints, mom. I was seeing things. I lost touch with reality.

Poppy: I know, okay? They’re not normal mints. I take them as a way to unwind. You know, like some people have a glass of wine. It’s harmless.

Luna: No, mom, it’s not.

Poppy: I never wanted you to know. I tried keeping it from you.

Luna: I can’t believe it. I was drugged by my own mother? Wanna know how I get this glow?!

Eric: All right. No more questions about the new woman in your life.

Zende: I’m not being coy, granddad. If I was going to talk to anybody about this, you would be top of my list.

Eric: Good. I’m glad to hear it. Just know I’m always here if you need to talk.

Zende: Thank you.

Eric: Although there is something I want to talk to you about. It’s been on my mind a lot lately.

Zende: Not your health.

Eric: No, not my health. That’s going pretty well, actually, although, it is related. When I was first ill, when I was hiding my diagnosis from everybody, um, well, I asked rj and luna to help me out with the collection.

Zende: Yeah, I– I understand. Ridge explained it to me.

Eric: Well, I want you to hear it from me. It was not my intention to exclude you or to keep you out of the loop. Not at all. I have great respect for your talent and your skill and your contributions at forrester. You’re very important to our company. You understand that? I wanna work with you, too.

Zende: I’d be honored.

Eric: Oh, the honor would be mine. I’m very impressed with the young talent we have at forrester. I mean, you and thomas, hope, rj, luna. You know, luna is the most extraordinary intern we’ve ever had at forrester, I think. I mean, she’s quick and she’s resourceful and she’s smart and I think she’s inspired. I want you to do me a favor.

Zende: Anything, granddad.

Eric: I want you to get to know her. I want you to work with that young lady.

Liam: I’m not trying to put you in an awkward position, asking you about your girlfriend’s mom.

Rj: No, no, it’s fine. I, um, I– I don’t mind. I just– I only have good things to say about poppy.

Liam: Yeah, but personality-wise, like kind of a free spirit type, from what I understand?

Rj: Yes. Yeah, no, she totally is.

Liam: It’s just hard for me to picture, like… you’ve heard this, right? The actual story of how they met 20 years ago at a music festival. One single, solitary, magical night. And then decades later, she just shows up in la?

Rj: Yeah, to be with her daughter.

Liam: I– I get that. I know that. I’m just, uh, you know, somebody’s gotta play the role of protective son, right? My dad’s one of the wealthiest men in L.A. And women target him all the time.

Rj: Not poppy. No, I– I totally get, like, the concern. But, no, luna and poppy are two of the most honest people I’ve ever met. Like, poppy’s definitely a free spirit. Granted, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t luna’s rock. Like, when she was working on the collection, poppy was there all the time with, like, take-out or coffee. You know, little pep talks. Whatever luna needed. My point is, is that totally don’t have to worry. I can’t even imagine poppy doing anything to hurt anyone.

Poppy: It was an accident, luna, okay? I usually keep them in my bag. I take the mints to help me relax.

Luna: Stop calling them that. They’re not mints, mom! I was hallucinating. I was with zende thinking that he was rj.

Poppy: Yeah, well, they don’t usually do that.

Luna: They did it to me! I mean, how did I even end up with them?

Poppy: Okay, I don’t know. Somehow, there was a mix-up before the party, and you picked up my mints instead of yours.

Luna: I was out of my mind, mom. I ended up in bed with another man. How could you do this, mom? How? Sleep more deeply.

Zende: Luna has a boyfriend, granddad.

Eric: Yes, I know. She’s been seeing rj. Yeah, I’m not suggesting anything like that.

Zende: That could cause big problems.

Eric: Yes. No question about that. No, I want you to work with luna as a mentor. Now, rj knows a lot about this business. He has a great deal of potential talent there. And he’s learned a great deal working with me lately, but, uh, he can’t touch what you know about it. You can teach luna things that– that he never could. I think you would enjoy each other. The two of you have a great deal in common.

Zende: You think so?

Eric: Yes. Look, I think it’d be really great for her. I really do.

Zende: She’s learned so much from you already, though, I–

Eric: Well, I need to start concentrating on other things in my life. Like my recovery. Spending more time at home here. Wanna concentrate on donna. It’s gonna be a while before I get behind the desk again at forrester. So, I want to keep luna engaged. And I want you to do that for me. Find out what excites her. What really turns her on, all right? I think that would really be good for her.

Liam: So, luna’s mom coming to town like right after you two started dating, that’s not– that hasn’t been an issue?

Rj: No, no, not at all. Luna’s, uh, she’s really close with her mom. She missed her, actually.

Liam: She’s definitely not the reason you want a little more privacy lately?

Rj: No. No, no, it wasn’t that. I needed– I needed my own space. It’s very hard to have a moment of privacy when you live with your parents, so…

Liam: Yeah, I’m– I’m aware. Yeah.

Rj: But anyways, though, poppy, I mean, she’s been so supportive of luna with her career goals. I mean, telling your mom that you wanna be in fashion isn’t like saying, “hey, I want to be an engineer or a doctor.”

Liam: Yeah, yeah. Unless you’re a forrester.

Rj: Right. But anyway, I really do think poppy would’ve been supportive of luna in whatever she decided to pursue because she’s just, honestly, she’s just a really positive person. And she just really sees the good in like every situation. Luna has like, uh, she has a similar attitude.

Liam: Yeah, takes after her mom?

Rj: They’re different. They both have the same set of values, you know? They’re both very kind and they both work really hard. They care about taking care of other people. Um, and they don’t let situations that are out of their control make them anxious.

Liam: That’s good advice.

Rj: Yeah, it’s just luna’s definitely not as laid back as her mom. Poppy’s definitely a free spirit, but that doesn’t mean that luna can’t depend on her mom.

Luna: I thought I was with rj last night. I mean, I saw his face. I heard his voice.

Poppy: Luna, I am so sorry.

Luna: You’re sorry? Mom, turns out I didn’t know where I was or who I was with. I love rj. I mean, I saved myself. I– I– I waited until the right guy came into my life. Someone that I trusted. And I don’t just do that with anyone. Like you. I haven’t been with anybody else before rj. He was my first and it was beautiful and pure and– and now it’s tainted. It’s not pure anymore, mom. Because of what happened. Because of what you did to your own daughter.

Poppy: Luna, I would never.

Luna: Maybe aunt li was right about you. You know, I– I didn’t wanna believe it. I– I didn’t see you the same way that she saw you, but maybe I was just naive. Because all of your talk about freedom? I think that you’re just irresponsible. And selfish. You do whatever you want, never minding the consequences of whoever it could hurt. Does aunt li know about the drugs? And is that why she doesn’t want me in L.A. Or around finn or working at forrester? Because she thinks I’m a druggie just like you.

Poppy: Luna, you know your aunt has never been fair to me. She doesn’t know us.

Luna: Or maybe she knows exactly what you are, mom. A druggie.

Luna: I thought that I was with rj, zende. I saw his face. How could I make that up?

Zende: I can’t explain it. But you do know that what happened between us, what we shared… it was consensual, right? I would never.

Luna: I know that. It doesn’t change how I feel. The shock and– and the horror. I love rj so much and we have something so special. Or we did.

[ Phone rings ]

Luna: It’s rj.

Poppy: Don’t answer, okay? You’re too upset.

Luna: Well, he’s been texting me because I told him that I didn’t feel well when I left the party last night. Hi, rj.

Rj: Hey. How are you doing? Are you feeling better?

Luna: Not really.

Rj: I’m sorry. Do you have any idea what happened?

Luna: Yeah.

Rj: Well, it wasn’t food poisoning, was it?

Luna: Um… yeah, I definitely ate something bad.

Rj: Can I bring you anything? Maybe tea or crackers or…

Luna: No, no, it’s fine. I really don’t need anything.

Rj: Okay. Maybe me just being there then? I want to see you. I missed you last night.

Luna: I missed being with you too last night. Um, more than you know.

Rj: You’re at home, right? With your mom?

Luna: Yeah, um… look, it’s– it’s really not a good time right now, rj.

Rj: Okay. All right. Well, um… if you’re feeling better, uh, you’re welcome to come by my place later. And we can make up for the time that we missed last night.

Luna: Yeah. I need to see you too.

Rj: You need to see me? Well, that sounds serious.

Luna: Yeah, it’s, um, it’s pretty serious. Look, I, um, I love you so much, okay? Never forget that.

Rj: I– I love you too. And, uh, we’ll have plenty of time, together. You don’t have to worry about last night.

Luna: Okay. Bye. Well, rj wants to see me.

Poppy: Okay, that’s good. When are you gonna see him?

Luna: As soon as I figure out what I’m gonna say to him.

Poppy: Wait, luna. You can’t tell him.

Luna: I have to tell him?

Poppy: Okay, but you didn’t cheat. It wasn’t a betrayal. You were in an altered state.

Luna: I slept with another man, mom. How it happened doesn’t matter. Look, I know– I know I’ll probably lose rj after this. Like, zende and rj are– are rivals and there’s no way rj’s gonna accept this. I mean, how could he? I can’t even blame him.

Poppy: Please, luna, don’t do that. Don’t tell him.

Luna: Oh, my god. What kind of a mother are you? One night, I’m tripping off of your drugs, and the next day you’re telling me to keep secrets from the man I love?

Poppy: Okay, okay, luna, please, listen to me, all right? You are in an emotional state right now. Okay, you’re freaking out.

Luna: Uh, don’t I have every right to be?

Poppy: But you love rj so much, and he loves you. You two could have a beautiful relationship and future together. The relationship doesn’t have to end.

Luna: Oh, my god.

Poppy: Rj doesn’t need to know anything about what happened last night, okay? It was an accident. You did not mean to sleep with zende. Please, luna, I am begging you. Do not tell rj.

[ Sentimental music ]

Poppy: Tell me what happened, luna.

Luna: I don’t know.

Poppy: Okay, but you said you woke up in bed with zende.

Luna: Yes, but I thought it was rj. I saw his face, mom. I thought I was in bed with him, but it was zende. I slept with zende.

Poppy: Oh, honey, I am so sorry.

Luna: Something’s not right, mom. Something was seriously wrong with me last night, and I don’t know what it is, but I need you to help me, please.

Brooke: Honey, I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about.

Rj: Probably not. It’s just it seemed like luna was a little down when she was on the phone.

Brooke: Well, at least you got to talk to her after trying to reach her all morning.

Rj: Yeah, but that’s– that’s the thing. Luna, she’s never without her phone. She always has it on her, ready to pick up.

Brooke: She probably just needed to sleep in.

Rj: It sounds like it was more than that. I don’t know, but if you’re right, you know, and– and she’s just not feeling well, then, you know, I wanna be there for her, to help her and take care of her.

Brooke: Well, it’s nice that you offered, you know, she knows that you care. But luna’s not alone here in los angeles. She does have her mom to look out for her.

Luna: I thought that I was with rj, zende. I saw his face. How could I make that up?

Eric: Zende? What’s wrong?

Eric: I was getting some fresh air outside in the courtyard. I thought I’d stop in and say hi.

Zende: I’m glad you did. Congratulations again to you and donna.

Eric: Thank you. Yeah, your, uh, your granddad is a married man again. I’m officially off the market.

Zende: I feel bad for the ladies of beverly hills. They will be bummed to hear it.

Eric: It was great last night. It was so much fun surprising everyone. And surprising donna, especially. I mean, the whole evening was a great, great treat.

Zende: Yeah, we are all really excited for you. Truly.

Eric: You okay this morning? I mean, you seem a little down this morning. You okay?

Zende: Yeah, I, um, I just got a little bit of a stomach ache. That’s– that’s all.

Eric: So, you’re feeling the effects of last night, are you?

Brooke: Did anything happen with you and luna last night?

Rj: No. Nothing. I mean, she was excited to be at granddad’S. She was really honored to be included. She was having a good time at the party. Um, and then after a few hours, she got tired and she wanted to go home. She went home early. I don’t know. It didn’t seem like a big deal at the time.

Brooke: So, you didn’t argue or…

Rj: No. Nothing. Nothing at all. I– I don’t remember her being upset ever.

Brooke: Oh, honey. I’m sure she just wasn’t feeling well. And if that’s the case, she has her mother to take care of her. And a mother’s love is always the best medicine.

Luna: How could i have done that? This isn’t me.

Poppy: No, it’s not.

Luna: This isn’t who I am. I love rj. I would never cheat on him. Never. But I did. I cheated on the most wonderful guy. I mean, why would I even do that? How could I do that?

Poppy: I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. I hope you can forgive me.

Luna: Mom, what are you talking about? What are you saying? Open your eyes bigger.

Eric: You had a good time last night, didn’t you?

Zende: At the party? Yeah, yeah, it was cool.

Eric: Good. I’m glad you enjoyed yourself.

Zende: Yeah, you really pulled it together at the last minute there. An engagement and a wedding on the same night. Pretty badass.

Eric: Badass. That’s nice. I’m not called that very often. I think I like it. I had a lot of help pulling it off, though. Really.

Zende: Yeah, I don’t know how you manage it all. And you’re still recovering from a serious illness.

Eric: I feel pretty energized these days. Being married to a younger woman can really do that for a man, you know? I couldn’t wait to marry donna.

Zende: After all you’ve been through, I bet.

Eric: Look, when you know, you know, right? Why put it off?

Zende: I’m happy for you, granddad.

Eric: You know, zende, there’s a cure for what you’re feeling, right now?

Zende: What?

Eric: Yeah, um you know, a lot of water and– and some aspirin, some vitamin b, maybe a little hair of the dog, some people say.

Zende: I’m not hungover.

Eric: Are you sure? You’re not just feeling the effects of the evening? It’s nothing to be ashamed of, zende. It was a really fun evening. Everybody was drinking a lot of champagne, having a lot of fun. Everyone, everyone was. I’m just– I’m just glad there were no, you know, big slip-ups for the evening. It was a really unexpected night, wasn’t it?

Zende: Totally unexpected. So that’s– that’s what love can do, you know?

Zende: Love?

Eric: Yeah, love.

Rj: Is it pathetic that I already miss luna?

Brooke: No, honey. I think it’s sweet.

Rj: It’s just that I’m just so used to seeing her every morning. It’s just, it feels like weird to me that she’s not here, you know? And– and it’s very unlike her not to text me when she first wakes up, you know? And then, when I do call her and she does pick up this morning, there’s this tone in her voice that was just like, you know, like I’ve never heard that tone in her voice before.

Brooke: It can’t be something too horrible. I mean, what’s the worst it could be?

Rj: I don’t know. Maybe she’s mad at me?

Brooke: I highly doubt it. And if she is, I’m sure the two of you could talk through it, right?

Rj: Yeah, I guess. I mean, we’ve had a pretty solid track record so far. We’ve– I don’t think we’ve had a single disagreement since we first met each other at granddad’S.

Brooke: I just can’t believe that you two met in the forrester mansion the same way your father and I met. It’s crazy. I look back at that time and I remember it fondly. Your father and I have had our ups and downs, but we will always have that intense connection. And now you and luna are together. I just hope your road will be much smoother.

Poppy: I am so sorry, baby. And I hope you can forgive me.

Luna: Mom, you’re making no sense. This isn’t about you. You weren’t there at zende’s last night.

Poppy: I know, but it was my fault.

Luna: How? If you’re– if you’re gonna try and blame this on my upbringing, you have nothing to feel guilty about.

Poppy: No, no, it’s not about–

Luna: Then what is it? I’m the one that slept with zende. How is this possibly your fault?

Poppy: It was a mistake, and I am so sorry.

Luna: Would you stop? What do you have to feel sorry about?

Poppy: I think I know what happened to you last night. I would’ve called yesterday.

Eric: I was actually surprised you didn’t bring anybody with you last night.

Zende: Well, in all fairness, you hardly gave me a heads up.

Eric: I guess I didn’t, did I? I’m sorry about that. I just want to assure you, you’re welcome to bring anyone with you anytime you come to the forrester– you know that.

Zende: Yeah, yeah, no. I just wanted to focus on you being with the family.

Eric: I understand that. Sometimes, it’s easier not to worry about if someone’s being entertained or not, or if they’re just happy just being with you, you know. Although, who wouldn’t have had a good time last night? It was definitely an evening to remember.

Zende: Definitely.

Eric: And you’re out there though, aren’t you? I mean, look at you. You’re this incredibly eligible young man, right? You’re handsome, you’re accomplished. You’re a forrester, for god’s sake. Any woman would be lucky to be on your arm.

Zende: I appreciate that, granddad.

Eric: You’re ready, aren’t you? I mean, you’re ready to find that someone special, aren’t you?

Zende: Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Eric: You already found her?

Rj: Yeah, I mean, I guess we were bound to get on each other’s nerves at some point.

Brooke: Happens every once in a while.

Rj: Yeah, I just can’t imagine it with luna though. I’m such a huge fan of everything she does. Except, you know what, there is one point of contention between us, and that’s the air. She likes it freezing cold for some reason.

Brooke: Oh, my gosh, that could be a problem.

Rj: I don’t know. Honestly, now that I think about it, I mean, we’re just kind of like the most annoyingly compatible pair ever.

Brooke: That’s good. You’re a perfect match. I mean, there’s always setbacks and every relationship has its challenges.

Rj: Yeah. You and dad have been through some really tough times.

Brooke: But it’s only made us stronger.

Rj: Yeah, and– and that’s good and all, but honestly, I would like to avoid all of the drama with luna if I could.

Luna: You know what happened to me last night?

Poppy: Tell me again what you were feeling.

Luna: Mom, please.

Poppy: Please, luna, just go over it again. Tell me what you were feeling.

Luna: Um, I was having fun at the party and then suddenly, I got like really tired, so I told rj that I was gonna head home, and he offered to drive me, but I insisted that I’m fine, and I’d just order a car like I usually do. Then, I was walking outside and I saw water bottles in one of the guest houses. For some reason, I was like unbelievably thirsty. So, I went in the room and grabbed some water. I don’t know, I must have laid down and fallen asleep. I– I seriously remember looking up and seeing rj. Like, he looked so sweet and gorgeous. I don’t understand how I saw him instead of zende. It’s almost like, I don’t know, like I was hallucinating or something. It makes no sense.

Poppy: But you said you had some champagne.

Luna: Yeah, like a little. Like, I don’t know, one or two glasses.

Poppy: And not much to eat.

Luna: Barely. But that’s not it. That doesn’t explain anything. I don’t understand. Why did this happen, mom? Why? A mystery!

Eric: Don’t be discouraged, you know. She’s out there. That girl’s out there for you right now.

Zende: I believe that.

Eric: I’ve been very lucky in my life to have… I’ve had some wonderful women to share my life with. The amazing stephanie, you know. And now– and now this beautiful young wife, donna. It feels kind of really fun for me to say that again. My wife.

Zende: Marriage really suits you, granddad. I haven’t seen you smile this much in a long time.

Eric: That’s right. I mean, look at this. I have this career. I have– I have everything I need in this life. And then, to have this wonderful, wonderful, beautiful, lovely wife. It’s just icing on the cake.

Zende: I bet.

Eric: You’ll find her, zende, you will. And when you do, I know you. You’ll treat her with– with love and kindness and respect. Because that’s who you are. You’ll make her very happy.

Rj: I know I make luna happy, mom. I just want to protect her from all the drama.

Brooke: Our family? Drama?

Rj: Yeah. It’s shocking. It’s like we attract it. Like it’s in our blood. It’s really fun.

Brooke: Well, you are half logan and half forrester.

Rj: Yes, correct. I come from two lines of constant public scandal. It’s great. I would just– I would just like to personally, I’d just like to tone it down a little bit. That’s all.

Brooke: Okay, okay. I can understand you wanting to avoid the turmoil that your father and I have lived through, but I don’t think you and luna are gonna make the same mistakes.

Rj: I just– I’ve never had a connection with a woman like this before. Ever. I mean, I– I just trust her. Completely.

Brooke: I am so happy for you, sweetheart. I really am.

Luna: It was rj’s face, mom. I swear, I saw his face. He was there. And I thought that he was the one that was in bed with me and that’s why I did what I did. I mean, only with rj. He’s the guy that I love.

Poppy: I know, baby.

Luna: I mean, how could i do this? I– there’s no explanation. It– it doesn’t make any sense. No one at the forrester estate would drug me. That’s– that’s impossible. They would never do anything to hurt me, so… so what could it be?

Poppy: Do you remember earlier when you said you had some mints?

Luna: Yeah, I always do.

Poppy: Oh, my god! No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Luna: What– what are you freaking out about?

Poppy: I messed up so bad, sweetie, and I’m so sorry.

Luna: For what?

Poppy: These are my mints. And I couldn’t find them.

Luna: Mom, I don’t care about your stupid mints. What does this have to do with me?

Poppy: Everything. You know how I get anxious sometimes? And some people, they have a glass of wine, to unwind, or a cocktail, but I don’t drink. So, I found something that works for me. And– and I thought they were harmless. Until now, until this very moment. Somehow, you accidentally got my mints. They’re not regular mints, sweetheart.

Luna: What?

Poppy: It’s my fault. It’s all my fault. I am so sorry. I am so incredibly sorry.

Luna: Mom, what are you saying right now? What are you telling me? That me waking up in zende’s bed this morning was because of you and your mints? Oh, my god! Oh, my god! I got drugged by my own mother?

[Relaxing music]

Ridge: Get her here when you can. Oh. All right, I will. Thank you. Man, last night was one for the record books, huh?

Brooke: Yes, it was.

Ridge: Oh, I’m not talking about dad’s party.

Brooke: Oh.

Ridge: Oh.

Brooke: Yeah. But I am thrilled for donna and eric. They got engaged and then they got married.

Ridge: I’m happy for dad. Everything he went through.

Brooke: And in one magical night, all of donna’s dreams came true.

Ridge: That’s my dad. The master of romance, like I said.

Brooke: Hmm. Well, you’re not so bad yourself.

Ridge: No?

Brooke: No.

Poppy: Where are my mints?

[ Knocking on door ] Li, please, do come in. Make yourself at home. Well, you’re the last person I expected.

Li: Well, I had to see it for myself. Where you lure and seduce helpless, older, but very wealthy men.

Poppy: Oh.

Li: Healthy attitude, penelope. Barely in town and already you’ve gone straight to the top. Targeting the mighty bill spencer himself. And luna, she’s learned her lessons very well. Cozying up to rj forrester.

[ Phone chiming ]

Brooke: Oh, boy. Let me…

Ridge: Okay, that’s good news. Uh, it’s dad. He is gonna stay home today with donna. Which makes me happy because I had this whole nightmare about him running around town telling everybody how happy he is, forgetting about the recovery he needs to go through.

Brooke: Right. Well, donna would never let that happen. Now that she’s mrs. Eric forrester, she’s gonna boss him around. And I mean that in the best way possible.

Ridge: No, I think you’re right. She’s– she’s good at that. I mean, he doesn’t listen to me ever, but she seems to have A… a lighter touch. Kinda like her sister. Have I told you lately how much I like hanging out with you?

Brooke: Uh… I think I remember you saying that once or twice last night. But I certainly would like to hear it again.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: I like hanging out with you.

Brooke: I love you.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: Love you.

Poppy: I don’t appreciate you barging in here unannounced, insulting me and my daughter, judging me, all right? If you find it so distasteful, there’s a very simple solution. Just stay away.

Li: You’d like that, wouldn’t you? Me turning a blind eye so you and luna can take advantage of every rich man you come across? You may not have your hooks all the way into bill spencer yet, but luna’s, she has steffy’s younger brother wrapped around her finger. It’s only a matter of time before she breaks that boy’s heart.

Zende: Coffee?

Luna: Oh, thank god. My head is pounding. You’re always so thoughtful. Zende? Wait, what are you doing here?

[ Zende chuckling ]

Zende: I, uh… I live here.

Luna: No, no, you don’t live… wait, where’s rj?

Zende: Rj?

Luna: Where– where is he?

Zende: I, um… I– I don’t know, luna, but he’s definitely not here.


Poppy: Why do you hate luna and me so much?

Li: I don’t hate you.

Poppy: Well, you could’ve fooled me. And you’re always so angry and so harsh. You know, we’ve never been close as sisters should be. And it’s not like I haven’t tried, but you constantly shut me out.

Li: What you interpret as anger is disapproval of you. Your choices. The decisions you make. And don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Poppy: Because I’ve had lovers in my life?

Li: Not just one or two, poppy, a parade of them. All with two things in common. All very handsome, all very rich. And bill spencer more than fits that criteria. In fact, he just may be the jackpot you’ve been aiming for. It’s not only your promiscuous behavior that disgusts me. It’s how you live your life.

Poppy: Oh, so now my breathing offends you.

Li: You always say you’re so carefree. Carefree. Isn’t that just a euphemism for taking drugs? Your mints. I know about them. I don’t miss much and I’m good at putting pieces together. I watch you. I see you reaching into your purse for your little stash. I’m not just your sister, penelope. I’m a doctor. You can’t hide from me.

>>Okroe: Donna woke up this morning as mrs. Eric forrester. Something she didn’t expect. I’m so happy for the two of them.

Ridge: It’s amazing, really. You know, we almost lost dad, and now… starting a whole new chapter with the woman he loves.

Brooke: Eric’s journey is a miracle.

Rj: Oh, yeah. I can agree with that. Hi.

Brooke: We were talking about last night.

Rj: Interesting night. Granddad’s full of surprises, still, apparently. Um, no, it was– it was great. It was great seeing him so happy. Donna really does that for him, so.

Brooke: Speaking of happy, there’s you and luna.

[ Rj chuckling ]

Rj: We’re happy. She’s, um, she’s amazing.

Ridge: And how did you like the impromptu evening?

Rj: It meant a lot to her, too. That granddad specifically invited her.

Ridge: Well, he’s very high on luna. And you are, too, I guess.

Luna: Oh, my god. What happened? What am I doing here?

Zende: That’s what I asked myself when you surprised me here last night.

Luna: Last night. The party. I was so tired, so I left. And then I was so thirsty. And I saw the water bottle through the window. And I came in here to drink it.

Zende: And I came home. And I found you here. Waiting for me.

Luna: For you?

Zende: Uh, who else lives here?

Luna: Okay, I need to know exactly what happened last night.

Zende: You know what happened. In all my travels I’ve never seen such dry skin.

Li: You look so shocked. Like you actually thought you were fooling me. I’ve always been and always will be three steps ahead of you, penelope. It’s not because I’m great. It’s because you squandered every bit of potential you ever had. Such a disappointment. You and your loose morals. The way you treat your body, my god, penelope.

Poppy: All right, well, is this all you came to say? Because I have heard it all before. You can leave now.

Li: I don’t back down that easy, you know that. You’ll always hear the truth from me. And the truth is, you’re a druggie.

Poppy: All right, that is not true.

Li: No? How long have you been taking your so-called mints? Huh? How many times a week? A day? Do you leave home without them or are they always in your reach? Do you even know what’s in them?

Poppy: Hey, it is not like that anymore, li, okay? It’s not the way you’re making it sound. Yes, I take mints because they give me a little lift, right? I don’t drink alcohol.

Li: Oh, come on. Penelope, you’re a grown woman. You’re a mother living with your child. What are you thinking?

Brooke: Your father and i haven’t wanted to stick our noses into your love life.

Rj: Really? Since when?

Ridge: We’re not that bad, really.

Rj: No, it’s okay. You’re not that bad. But, no, it’s totally fine. Actually, I gotta check myself sometimes. I talk about her a lot.

Ridge: She is a lovely young lady.

Rj: You know, when I came to L.A., I did not have my mind on getting in a relationship at all. I was just planning on coming here to visit and see you guys and talk, and then I was just gonna hit the road again.

Rj: Well, there you go. Best laid plans, son.

Rj: Yeah, and I just met the most beautiful girl and got sidetracked. But she turned out to be so much more than that. I mean, she’s sweet, she’s kind, she’s caring. She really gets me, you know? And this whole situation with granddad, too. She was really supportive through all of it. And we got a lot closer because of that.

Brooke: Yeah, you can see how close you’re getting every single day.

Rj: Yeah, and, um, I, uh, you bring that up, I wanted to talk to you about that. Um, so, we’re not only, you know, just dating anymore. We’re a little more serious.

Ridge: Really? Yeah. I’m happy for you, son.

Brooke: I am, too.

Rj: So, you guys– you guys approve?

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: Wholeheartedly. Yes.

Rj: She’s really special. I love her.

Luna: Throw me that robe. Turn around.

Zende: Um, are you, uh, upset with me? What we shared last night was incredible. You were amazing, so free and, uh, uninhibited.

Luna: No, no, no, no, no, no. What happened to me?

Feeling claritin clear

is like…

Li: Sometimes I think back, how happy I was to have a little sister. I thought we’d be each other’s rocks. Best friends forever.

Poppy: We were. Until I got old enough to think for myself and stopped blindly following you around.

Li: You changed into a different person. Someone I didn’t recognize anymore. Abandoning the moral structure our parents set for us. Running wild. Living your unorthodox lifestyle.

Poppy: We don’t all have to be the same, okay? I can be me, and you can be you, and we can still be close as sisters should be.

Li: Those days are far behind us.

Poppy: They don’t have to be.

Li: How can I be close to someone who constantly makes choices that I don’t respect? Popping your pills? You’re a mother, penelope. Do you even think of the example you’re setting, still set, for your daughter?

Poppy: Luna is a– a bright and sweet and caring young woman, and I couldn’t be prouder.

Li: Luna’s a gold digger, just like her mother.

Poppy: Say all you want about me, I don’t care. But you will not talk about luna like that.

Li: Does she know about the mints?

Poppy: Of course not.

Li: What are they exactly?

Poppy: I– I’m a grown woman, li. I do not have to stand here and be lectured by you.

Li: You’re playing with fire, penelope. You can’t know what’s in them or how much. So be careful, you hear me? Because this can end very, very badly.

Luna: Rj and I are in love. And I waited, and it was perfect, and now I wake up here in this bed with you? I mean, what have I done?

Zende: I am, uh, suddenly really confused, too. I came home last night and you were waiting for me. What happened? It was definitely mutual. It’s something that we both wanted. I would never–

Luna: How– how did I end up here? Make that make sense!

Zende: I– I wish I could, but we didn’t do a lot of talking. Like I said, I came home after the party, and you were here. I– I– I was surprised. I didn’t think that you would take my invitation seriously.

Luna: Invitation? What invitation?

Zende: Remember, I told you that I lived on the property and that you would always know where to find me.

Luna: No, no, no. This isn’t me waiting for you. I love rj. I– I would never do this.

Zende: But luna, you did. Hey, hey, I can tell how upset you are right now, and that is the last thing that I want. If you couldn’t tell, I’m crazy about you.

Luna: No, please, please, please don’t say that.

Zende: You really don’t remember how incredible it was? How beautiful? I thought that–

I– I saw rj. It was him! He was here! He’s the only guy that I’ve ever– look, I don’t remember much, but he was definitely here. Okay, I don’t understand. This doesn’t make any sense. God, my head is pounding. This makes zero sense. I’ve only had like a glass or two of champagne. Oh my god, what have I done?

Zende: I’m so sorry about whatever it is that is happening right now, but you believe me, don’t you? I would never take advantage of–

Luna: Yes, I know that. I know. I believe you. I remember enough to know that. How could I? Rj loves me and trusts me, and this is what I do to him? I mean, I come to L.A., And I fall in love with the most wonderful guy in the world, who stands by me and believes in me, and this is what I do to him. I betray him like this. How could I– how could I do this to him? How could I?

[ Mellow music playing]

Brooke: Did that seriously just happen? Eric pulling a ring out of nowhere.

Zende: And an entire wedding ceremony.

Katie: You did great, babe.

Carter: Ah, thank you.

Ridge: A forrester ceremony can’t be a challenge for you anymore, can it?

Carter: Well, usually I have more time to prepare. But, um, when you have two people who are clearly made for each other… words tend to come pretty easily.

Donna: You hear that, honey bear? Clearly made for each other.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Yeah.

Luna: No, what are you doing?

Rj: I had to tell you something. I couldn’t wait another second.

Luna: What?

Rj: I love you.

Luna: Oh, hold on.

Rj: Hang on what? A mint? Right now?

Luna: Okay.

Poppy: Bill, you’re making me uncomfortable looking at me like that.

Bill: Look, I’m not– I’m not trying to make you uncomfortae. Come on, poppy, the stakes are pretty high. I’ve got to ask you again. Are you absolutely certain there’s no chance I’m luna’s father?

Poppy: Bill, I already told you.

Waitress: Here we go, guys.

Bill: Thank you. Thanks. You already told me what you think I want to hear or the truth? Because I– I can’t help feeling like you are covering. Maybe out of concern for my reaction. I wouldn’t be upset, poppy. In fact, quite the opposite. If luna is my daughter, I would look after her. I would do everything I could to make up for lost time. Wel– welcome her into the spencer family, if that’s what you and she wanted. So I’m gonna ask you again. Is luna my daughter?

Luna: Congrats to you both.

Donna: Oh, thank you.

Rj: You know what? I should’ve known. I should’ve known that you were up to something. You were so adamant to throw a party. I’m kicking myself.

Eric: You missed the clues, my boy. You missed them. Listen, um, I want to thank you for all the care and concern that we’ve felt from you the last few months. That support’s been very important to us. And you two are very important to the two of us. I see a big future ahead for you. Look at these numbers, just look at them.

Poppy: I’m so impressed with your willingness to step up and embrace luna. And I think you’re remarkable. But she’s not your daughter. I mean, as much as I would want that for her, the doors that it would open. But you’re not. I mean it, bill.

Bill: But you know who is.

Poppy: I know it’s not you.

Bill: So it never bothered you, not having another parent involved?

Poppy: I’m happy with the way things are. Luna and me. It’s our power, as we like to say.

Bill: Okay.

Poppy: I am touched by how much you would have wanted it, and that you would have accepted her.

Bill: She’s an incredible young woman.

Poppy: She is. I mean, moving to los angeles, interning at forrester. I mean, falling for rj. She couldn’t be happier.

Rj: Oh, what’s this– what’s this little look in your eye?

Luna: What do you mean?

Rj: You seem– you’re like all relaxed. You’re very like, zen, I guess.

Luna: Hmm, I don’t know. It makes sense? It kind of feels like we can now.

Rj: Finally.

[ Phone rings ]

Rj: I gotta take this. I’ll be right back, okay?

Luna: Okay.

Katie: I’m so happy for you.

Donna: Can you believe it?

Katie: Well, yes, I can. You’ve been going down this road for a while.

Donna: Oh, yeah.

Carter: Hey, eric, I have to say you made a wise choice.

Eric: Don’t I know it. Thank you.

Donna: And thank you for officiating. It was a bit of an ambush, I know.

Eric: Yeah, yeah.

Carter: It was my honor.

Ridge: Well, dad, you have proven it once again.

Eric: Proven what?

Ridge: That you are the master of romance. No one can touch you.

Eric: I’m not sure about that.

Brooke: Oh, it’s true, eric. A surprise wedding? We were swooning right alongside donna.

Eric: I simply could not go another day without being her husband.

Zende: Where you hiding him?

Luna: Huh?

Zende: Rj. He’s barely left your side all night. But I get it. If I were him, I wouldn’t– I wouldn’t either. Someone as beautiful as you, nah.

Luna: Um, he just took a phone call. He should be right back.

Zende: Okay. If he gets lost, let me know. And don’t forget, I live right here on the property. In the guest house. If you ever need me, you know where to find me.

Luna: Okay.

Rj: Hi.

Luna: Hi.

Eric: Everyone, if I may, um, I’d like to raise a toast to my beautiful, wonderful wife. This woman never ceases to amaze me. You bring me such happiness and joy, every day. I think loving you is wonderful, but… being loved by you is, I think, the happiest moment of my life. So… to you. To donna logan-forrester.

Brooke: Wow. Yes.

Eric: Cheers.

All: Cheers. Head & shoulders is launching something huge.

Bill: Your sister doesn’t know you very well, does she? The real you.

Poppy: Um, no, not really. What made you think of that?

Bill: Well, there’s a certain kind of woman who would try to take advantage. Pin a child on me that wasn’t even mine. Li thinks you’re a gold digger. Clearly, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Poppy: It might be hard for you to understand, given your wealth and immense resources, but I’ve always been content having very little. Just a simple, pleasant life. Me and my daughter.

Bill: You know what? I’m gonna order another drink.

Waitress: Right away.

Bill: Thank you. You sure I can’t get you a glass of wine? Maybe something stronger? And I know you have your own way to unwind.

Poppy: No, I’m good, thanks. Not if I have my…

Bill: Something missing?

Brooke: Just promise to never go to bed angry.

Ridge: Good.

Brooke: Okay?

Donna: Good advice, sis, but, um, I’m pretty sure I’m never gonna be angry at this man. Not before bed, not in the morning. Never, never, never.

Eric: Pure wedded bliss, right?

Donna: Right.

Eric: Except for the very rare occasion when she denies me a nice evening martini. But that’s– that’s– that’s not so much anger, it’s just irritation.

Donna: What?

Rj: Hey, are you okay?

Luna: Yeah, I’m just like a little tired.

Ridge: Donna, the way you fought for my dad, the way you stood by him, um, there’s not a doubt in my mind you guys are gonna have a long and happy marriage. So, here’s to you and my dad. Love you guys. Cheers.

All: Cheers. Donna and eric.

Donna: Thank you, ridge, and, um, well, thanks to everybody for, uh, all the kind words. But, um, mostly thanks to you for this wonderful surprise. I can’t believe I get to call you my husband again. The kindest, most handsome man. A man that I thought I was gonna lose. And I’m so grateful for, um, having more time to, uh, have more surprises like this.

Eric: Okay.

Donna: More time with the one true love of my life, eric forrester.

Eric: Thank you. Look over there. Look over there.

Rj: Couldn’t be happier for them.

Luna: Seriously.

Rj: Yeah. Come here.

Luna: Ooh, hold on. Hold this. Thank you.

Bill: Can’t find your mints?

Poppy: No. They’re not here.

Rj: You’re perfect, so I’m gonna be right back. Okay? All right, one second. My lady, come here.

Donna: Oh, oh, why, thank you.

[ Indistinct chatter ]

Zende: I have not been able to take my eyes off you tonight.

[ Luna chuckling ] Really?

Zende: Yeah. Something’s different about you. You’re, like, glowing. Look at you shedding that shy intern image.

Luna: Well, I’m only shy until you get to know me better.

Zende: Invitation accepted. Really, though, I would like that. To get to know you better. And if you ever get bored of rj, remember, my door is always open. Right across the courtyard.

Rj: Hello.

Luna: Hi.

Rj: Are you okay?

Luna: Yeah, I just got really tired all of a sudden. Um, I think it’s best if I just go home.

Rj: Really?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, I’m sorry, I don’t want to disappoint.

Rj: No, no, you’re not– you’re not disappointing. It’s okay.

Luna: Thank you for being understanding. You’re so sweet, rj. I love you so much. When barbara switched to turbotax…

[ Indistinct chatter ]

Luna: Please thank your grandfather and donna for me.

Rj: You don’t wanna say goodbye?

Luna: No, I do, I do, but I think it’s best if I just slip out.

Rj: I– I could drive you.

Luna: No, no, no. That’s sweet. You’re so sweet, but I’m okay. I mean, your grandfather just got married, so you should stay. I’ll just order a ride.

Rj: You’re sure?

Luna: Yes, I’m sure. Ooh, I love you so much. You’re like the dream boyfriend, you know that?

Rj: As long as you think so.

Luna: I do. And I agree with what your granddad said about us. About us having a beautiful future ahead of us. Okay.

Rj: Be safe.

Bill: Your little happy mints. Where do you think you left them?

Poppy: I have no idea.

Luna: I’m so thirsty.

Zende: I think I’m gonna call it a night.

Eric: What, already?

Zende: Yeah, keep the racket down, will you?

Eric: Okay, I’ll do– I’ll do my best.

Zende: I’m happy for you. Congratulations.

Eric: Thank you.

Donna: Thank you.

Eric: Nice, huh?

Donna: Yeah.

Rj: Hey.

Eric: Where’s– where’s luna?

Rj: Uh, she was exhausted and she decided to head home early. But she wanted me to tell you just how happy she was that you invited her and that she had a great time.

Donna: Aw, look at us, we’re outlasting the young people.

Rj: Ah, you’re cool, huh?

Eric: Well, I’m sure you and luna are gonna have many, many nights to celebrate in your future. She’s a terrific girl. Don’t let her go.

Rj: I won’T.

[ Mellow music ]

Zende: Luna? Hello, luna.

[ Luna giggles ]

Luna: Hi, you.

Rj’s voice: You’re here.

Luna: Waiting for you.

Eric: Donna, I love you. I want you to be my wife. I– I want you to marry me. I want you to give me some kind of an answer before I have to sit down here for very long.

Donna: Please get up. Get up.

Eric: Thank you. Thank you. Thanks.

Donna: Yes.

Eric: Yes?

Donna: Yes, of course, I’ll marry you. Yes.

Eric: Okay, okay come here. Come here. Mm.

Donna: It’s so beautiful. Eric… I love you.

Eric: Thank you.

Poppy: I’m really glad sheila’s not here.

Bill: Yeah, that dimwit deacon neither.

[ Poppy chuckles ] It really feels like our place today.

Poppy: I like that.

Bill: Look we found each other again after over 20 years.

Poppy: I still can’t believe you recognized me from across the restaurant.

Bill: I couldn’t take my eyes off you. I was drawn to you, poppy. Look, I’m– I’m not someone who is into a bunch of cosmic nonsense, but I can’t help feeling like there were forces at work reconnecting us.

Bill: You were with luna when I called earlier, right?

Poppy: Helping her get ready.

Bill: You had plans?

Poppy: No, but she did. She’s with rj at the forrester estate. I’ve never seen her so happy.

Donna: That is so beautiful.

Zende: Way to go, granddad. You were lucky she said yes.

Eric: You’re right about that, my boy.

Rj: Like there was ever any doubt.

Eric: No, I don’t think so.

Ridge: You get a second shot at life, you really take it, don’t you?

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Eric: Thank you, son. Thank you.

Carter: You’re just full of surprises, aren’t you?

Eric: Yeah, I am. And, uh, we have more to come, right? Okay, here we go.

[ Clears throat ] Listen, everybody, I’m– I’m well aware that we don’t have our whole family here, but I love everyone that’s here. Thank you. Thank you for being here with me and with donna tonight. And we have plenty of people here to celebrate a wedding.

Katie: Wait, what?

Eric: Yeah, I mean, we have witnesses and we have an officiant here. So carter’s willing, take a look.

Donna: You what? You want to get married now, tonight?

Eric: Sure, why not? What else are we going to do? You know, we’re not gonna play board games here and look at you, right? Come here. What do you say about that? You want to finish tonight as husband and wife? Come on. 3, 4

Bill: I think that rj is a reliable guy, but if he ever lets luna down, I wouldn’t hesitate to step in.

Poppy: In what way?

Bill: I know that luna doesn’t know who her father is. And maybe to some extent, she never needed one. She had a whole family in you.

Poppy: That’s right.

Bill: You’re not alone, poppy. Luna may not have a dad, but she’s got me. Did I say something wrong?

Poppy: No.

Bill: I’m just trying to be helpful.

Poppy: I know. It’s just you saying these things.

Bill: Yes. Me. I know that luna’s paternity is a sensitive subject. Her unknown father. A man that you were involved with over 20 years ago. Around the same time that we met at the music festival and spent that incredible night together. Poppy… am I luna’s father?

Donna: Okay, my head is spinning. I– I need to sit down.

Eric: Uh-huh.

Donna: First, a proposal. Now, you’re suggesting a– a wedding?

Eric: A wedding, yes. This is where weddings traditionally happen in this family. Right here in this room.

Donna: You’re serious. You– you want to get married right now?

Eric: Yes, I do. You know my new motto. Carpe diem. Seize the day, you know? And I don’t want to waste any more time in my life. Not one more second. Now you’re wearing the ring. And you’ve said that you want to marry me, so let’s do it. Let’s do it right now. Right? Carter’s here. Even he’s willing to do it, are you not, carter?

Carter: You know, when we talked earlier, I didn’t realize you meant everything today. But yes, yes, I would love to.

Donna: Okay, okay, but– but what? Okay, what about– what about steffy and– and thomas and the rest of the family?

Eric: Ah, you know, I– I would fly us off to the amalfi coast if I could, you and me. And then just do it by ourselves, but I don’t think my doctors would allow that. Come on, let’s do it here. I can’t wait, I can’t wait. I want to do it here. What do you say?

Donna: You knew I’d want my sisters with me, by my side, didn’t you?

Eric: I wanted it to be perfect for you, and it wouldn’t be otherwise if they weren’T. So?

Katie: We would be happy to stand up for you.

Brooke: Or give you a wedding.

Donna: I– I– I, um, I– I don’t even know what to say. I mean, it’s just…

Eric: I don’t want to wait. I want to do this tonight. Right now.

Donna: I don’t want to wait either. Yes. Yes. I want to become your wife, today.

Eric: It’s a wedding. It’s a wedding.

Rj: All right.

[ Cheering ]

Katie: All right.

Carter: Here we go.

Katie: Party planning, here I come. This isn’t charmin!

Bill: You don’t have to be nervous, poppy. I want to know. Am I luna’s father? I’m ready for the truth. And all the responsibility that goes with it. You know how connected I feel to you already. And I can’t help feeling that this is the reason that you and I were drawn back together.

Poppy: And maybe we have been. But luna isn’t the reason. You’re not her father, bill. It wasn’t you. It was someone else.

Katie: All right everyone, we have a wedding to put on. So, first things first. Those glasses, rj, clear them. We can have an aisleway this way. You go up there. You know the drill.

Carter: I’m familiar.

Katie: Who’s going to be our photographer?

Luna: Uh, me.

Katie: Perfect. You, head to the back of the house.

Donna: Oh, no, no, no. I don’t really have to do that.

Katie: Oh, yes you do. Don’t be silly. Brooke, come help the bride to be.

Brooke: Oh, okay, yes. I’m sorry. Here? Yeah, okay. Your flowers.

Donna: Oh, honey, thank you. How do I even look? Okay?

Brooke: You look like the blushing bride.

Donna: I do?

Katie: Okay, okay. Witnesses, up here. Brooke, that’s you.

Eric: All right, ridge, up here by me. Here, here. Okay.

Katie: Zende, cue the music.

Zende: Got your wedding march right here.

Katie: And here comes the bride.

[ Mendelssohn’s “wedding march” plays ]

Carter: Welcome, friends and family to the wedding of eric forrester and donna logan. And the fact that it’s happening at a moment’s notice, well, that’s just classic eric forrester.

Ridge: The king of the grand romantic gesture. You are.

Carter: I can’t think of a better statement of love than to propose to the woman who’s been by your side these past months. So, yes, eric, carpe diem, indeed. Now, I’m sure you want to skip to that pronounce you part, but we have to take care of some business first. Is there anyone here who believes these two should not be married? Speak now or forever hold your peace.

Eric: No one better say anything. Really. You sure you want to do this like this? Because I’ll give you anything you want. The biggest wedding in the world and lots of flowers and hundreds of people attending. Do you want any of that?

Donna: Stop, stop. You can stop right there, eric. I want to marry you today. This is the wedding of my dream.

Eric: Mine too. The last time I saw people in this room, it ended very badly. There’s a small part of it that I remember, which was a calm and a peace of a life well lived, surrounded by uh, people who love me. And I love. And mostly by this incredible woman. She’s been standing next to me ever since. Thank you. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. Okay? So let’s get married. Are you… are you ready?

Donna: I have been waiting for this moment, eric. All of my life. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Bill: If I missed seeing luna grow up, I’d like to make up for it.

Poppy: She isn’t your daughter, bill.

Bill: How can you be sure? You said yourself the timing is close.

Poppy: But not close enough. This conversation is making me uncomfortable.

Bill: Look, I– I’m not judging you, poppy. It was your free spirit that drew me to you in the first place.

Poppy: I know, and I’m grateful for that. And I appreciate your willingness to help us, but there are no obligations.

Bill: I don’t see it as an obligation. I would be proud.

Poppy: And for caring. It’s always been the two of us. Luna and me, against the world. That’s our power.

Carter: Well, eric, it’s your rodeo. We could skip to the “I do’s”, unless you secretly prepared vows.

Eric: No, I didn’t, but I do have… I do have something I want to say.

Donna: Actually, um, me too.

Ridge: That sounds like vows, doesn’t it?

Rj: Yeah, that sounds like vows.

Carter: Eric, you can go first.

Eric: Okay. I already spilled the beans. You know, I– I already told you how much I love you. Every day is an adventure with you. I love how funny you are and how loving and sweet, and supportive. I like your um, your playful, sort of naughty side.

Carter: Wow.

[ All laughing ]

Eric: It’s your nurturing side that uh, has meant so much to me over these… over this time with you. This has been scary. We were so afraid of losing each other. I didn’t want to leave you. And so, I didn’T. I’m here. And I’m not gonna leave you. I love you. I love you forever.

Donna: Eric, my honey bear. I, uh… the thought of losing you was– was devastating. Imagining my life without the man that I love… it shattered my heart. I’m so grateful for every single, sacred moment that I have with you and I promise you– I promise you, I will never take any of it for granted. Not a single second. My god. I– I didn’t even expect this. To become mrs. Eric forrester like this. I didn’t need it. I didn’t– I didn’t need it, eric. All I needed was you. But for you to propose like this and end up with this gorgeous ring on my finger and… and insist that we get married like this. I’ve never felt more loved in my entire life than I do right now. On the verge of becoming mrs. Eric forrester.

Carter: So this is the part where I usually say something like, the promises you make today aren’t as important as the ones you keep every day in your marriage. Eric and donna, they’ve already shown us that kind of fidelity. So, on to the “I do’s”.

Luna: It’s so exciting.

Carter: Donna, do you take eric to be your husband? Do you promise to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him? For better or worse, in sickness and in health. Forsaking all others, be faithful to him.

Donna: Oh, my goodness.

Carter: For as long as you both shall live?

Donna: Yes, I do. You could’ve stopped a long time ago.

Carter: Eric, do you take donna to be your wife? Do you promise to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her? For better or worse, in sickness and in health. Forsaking all others, be faithful to her, for as long as you both shall live?

Eric: I do.

Carter: Well, without rings, I guess we can uh, skip to the end.

Eric: Well, uh…

Ridge: Yep.

Donna: Oh, you brought wedding bands. Of course you did.

Eric: Well, I was hoping that you’d say yes, so…

Carter: Okay, well, eric and donna, you have pledged your vows. You’ve declared your consent. So, let these rings remind you that even if you only have a moment, you take it. You make it count.

Donna: We will. We will.

Carter: Okay, donna, take eric’s left hand.

Eric: It’s this one here.

Donna: I knew that.

Carter: Take this ring and repeat after me. Eric, I give you this ring as a symbol of my enduring love and commitment to you.

Donna: Eric, I give you this ring as a symbol of enduring love and commitment to you.

Carter: Eric, take this ring and repeat after me. Donna, I give you this ring as a symbol of my enduring love and commitment to you.

Eric: Donna, I give you this ring as a symbol of my enduring love and commitment to you.

Carter: Eric and donna have pledged their vows, pledged their lives to each other and have shown their love to all of you witnesses. It is my absolute pleasure and honor by the power vested in me by the state of california, to pronounce you husband and wife. Eric, you may kiss your bride.

Eric: Thank you. Thank you. Hey.

Carter: And just like that, I present to you mr. And mrs. Eric forrester.

[ Upbeat music plays ]

Eric: You look dazzling.

Donna: Oh, I feel like a– a princess in this dress.

Eric: You are a princess in this dress. I had it sent over from forrester especially for you.

Donna: Eric, um, you know I’m always, always ready for a party. But I– I just really don’t want you overwhelming yourself.

Eric: I won’T. Don’t worry. This is gonna be a wondrous night. You’ll see.

Ridge: Hey.

Brooke: Well, well, well. There’s the man of the hour.

Ridge: And we are ready to celebrate with you.

Eric: Yes, and we’re gonna celebrate today, my beautiful, darling donna.

[ Knock on door ]

Rj: Hey, man.

Zende: What’s up?

Rj: I don’t know. I just wanted to come over and talk to you and make sure there was no tension between us before the party.

Zende: No, no, of course. Tonight’s all about granddad. I’m surprised, uh, you’re not with your girl.

Rj: Oh, you know, she’s, uh, she’s getting ready with her mom at the office.

Zende: Well, I’m sure that luna will look beautiful tonight.

Poppy: Hello. Oh, my god, it’s beautiful. And so chic. Oh, my sweet baby. I’m so thrilled for you.

Luna: Thank you. And this look is to die for, right? I’m obsessed.

Poppy: Yes, I am too. And rj is gonna love it.

Bill: Well, so– so finish with what steff was telling you about eric.

Liam: Well, I mean, long story short, it looks like eric’s been given a clean bill of health.

Bill: Well, that’s good news.

Liam: Yeah, well, it’s good. He’s not out of the woods yet. But obviously, steffy is elated. The whole family is, um– the whole family is really relieved, dad? Hi.

Bill: What?

Liam: Okay, you’re a little distracted and I think I know why.

Liam: So, uh, when the hell do I get to meet poppy?

Bill: Look, we’re not, uh, rushing things. You– you know that poppy and I have our history.

Liam: I do. You’re not rushing things, but you still want to see where this goes, don’t you?

Bill: I do. Even though the time we spent together back in the day was relatively fleeting, it was also, um, extremely impactful. And I think it’s something that we can build on in the future.

Poppy: You’re going to have the most fabulous time.

Luna: Well, I’ll definitely have the cutest date, that’s for sure. And the best hair and makeup thanks to you.

Poppy: Well, any excuse to spend quality time with my daughter. Now, let me just touch up that blush, hmm?

Luna: I mean, it’s an honor to even be invited. The fact that eric specifically asked for me to be there…

Poppy: Well, he admires you, honey. And he knows how important you’ve become to rj. There. You look as beautiful as you do on the inside. Rj won’t be able to take his eyes off you.

Rj: Can’t wait to see luna in her dress.

Zende: Definitely a different vibe from the last time we got dressed up to go to a party.

Rj: Yeah, grandad’s goodbye party. Thought we were gonna lose him.

Zende: Almost did.

Rj: Then he got a second chance.

Zende: I can’t think of a better reason to celebrate.

Rj: Me too.

Donna: Well, it’s gonna be a cozy little gathering. Finn is working and hayes is sick, and steffy didn’t wanna chance getting you sick.

Eric: Yeah, yeah.

Brooke: And hope and thomas couldn’t come because they have that big hope for the future meeting.

Eric: Yeah, I wouldn’t want them to cancel that. No, no, I was aware it’s just gonna be a small gathering. It’s fine.

Carter: Hello.

Donna: Oh! Oh, my goodness.

Eric: Carter and katie. Look at you.

Katie: You all look gorgeous. You most of all.

Eric: Thank you. Thank you.

Carter: How are you, man?

Eric: Welcome.

Donna: You look stunning, and not so bad yourself.

Rj: Hey, hey, there he is.

Zende: Who’s ready to get this party started?

Eric: I am, I am. Thank you both for joining donna and me for this party tonight. I promise everyone a memorable evening.

Donna: Hmm… y’all wayfair is the talk of the neighborhood, c’mon!

Liam: You know, I am really excited for you. ‘Cause I haven’t seen you this enamored with a woman since… maybe ever.

Bill: I felt this way about your mom too, son. She was an all-around knockout.

Liam: Thanks. Hey, I know that you’re not like a foo-foo, la-la, destiny, fate kind of guy, but… I really think it’s possible that poppy came back into your life for a reason, and… who knows, maybe she’s got something that you didn’t even realize you were missing.

Bill: Yeah, you may be exactly right, liam. In fact, I’m gonna cut our meal short and see if poppy’s available.

Luna: All right, this one? Or this one?

Poppy: I like that one.

Luna: Same. Great minds think alike.

Poppy: Yeah, well, what time does the party start? You don’t want to be late.

Luna: Um, it’s at– oh, my god, we totally lost track of time. I have to get going.

Poppy: Uh, do you want me to drop you off?

Luna: Uh, no, that is okay. I’m taking a car service.

Poppy: Okay. Um, are you sure you don’t wanna wear a wrap? ‘Cause it might get cold later.

Luna: Uh, no, no, it’s okay. Um, I’ll be fine.

Poppy: All right then. Have a fabulous time.

Luna: Thank you, mom. And thank you for helping me with my glam.

Poppy: Listen, I know tonight’s about eric and celebrating his miraculous recovery. But I’m so proud of you. I’m so happy you found rj. A guy who treats you with kindness and respect. Don’t let anything come between you and the man that you love.

Luna: I won’T.

Poppy: Now skedaddle. Go.

[ Luna laughs ]

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Rj: Well, luna’s on her way.

Eric: Good, that’s marvelous. I’m glad she’s gonna be here. She’s a very big part of this whole thing.

Rj: Yeah, luna’s strength and support while we were keeping it a secret– the health stuff– was nothing short of amazing, right?

Eric: When you find love, you stick with it. You hang on to it. Don’t let go. Not ever.

Rj: That’s exactly what I intend to do.

Eric: Everyone! I’m very aware we’re not all here, but I’m very, very proud and happy that you’re all here to help donna and me celebrate this wonderful evening. Thank you. It’s gonna be fun. And, uh, I’ll have more to say about all that later.

Ridge: You okay?

Eric: Yeah, I’m just a little, uh… I’m just a little disoriented. Last time I had a lot of people in this room, I was, uh… I was on the floor there. I collapsed, you know? And, uh… I wasn’t sure I’d ever be back.

Ridge well, you are back. You made it.

Eric: You knew my wishes, ridge.

Ridge: You gave me the power to make the right choice when the time came. And I did. And I’d do it again. You’re here. You’re alive. Is that what you want, or would you rather be dead?

Eric: That’s not what I’m saying. Not at all. You know that. I love this life. I love– I love this family. I love– I love donna.

Ridge: Yeah.

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: But right now, your face is telling a different story.

Eric: Yeah, yeah, well… I went to the other side, ridge, you know, and I saw that. And it was beautiful. It was indescribable. I mean, uh… you wouldn’t understand. I mean, you just can’T. I want you to know something. When my time comes again, and it will, I’m not afraid. I don’t want you to be afraid for me. Understand?

Ridge: Yeah.

Eric: Make no mistake, I love this life. I want to live. Cheers.

Ridge: Cheers. (Kids) get him!

Bill: There you go.

Poppy: Thank you.

Bill: Thanks for coming, poppy. I’m happy to see you again.

Poppy: It’s nice to see you too.

Bill: I’m sorry for the last-minute phone call. I don’t want you to think that I’m just assuming you’re available.

Poppy: Consider this your lucky day.

Bill: I do consider it my lucky day. I hope I didn’t take you away from anything too important.

Poppy: No, I was with luna, but she had plans.

Bill: How is your lovely daughter?

Poppy: She’s doing well. She’s enjoying work and her social life. She’s never been happier.

Bill: Really? That’s nice to hear.

Poppy: She’s in a wonderful relationship and very much in love with rj forrester.

Rj: Wow, you look stunning.

Luna: Thank you. You don’t look too bad yourself.

Rj: Granddad’s been asking about you. Granddad? Luna’s arrived.

Eric: Luna, hi. Welcome. I’m glad you could make it.

Luna: Thank you.

Eric: Hi. Well, make yourself at home. You know this area here pretty well. You spent enough time here with rj and me and donna when I was– when I was sick.

Luna: I’m so happy to be here. Thank you so much for including me.

Eric: Wouldn’t be the same without you. I’m sure rj feels the same way.

Brooke: So, no signs like before?

Donna: No, I mean, eric gets weak and– and tired sometimes, but all the other symptoms from before are totally gone. You know, I’m just crossing my fingers to hope that it stays that way.

Katie: Well, I just hope he doesn’t overdo it.

Donna: I don’t even know what I’d do if I lost my honey bear.

Eric: Carter, have I mentioned how wonderful it is to have you here?

Carter: Well, there’s no place I’d rather be in this world, eric. You always treat me like family.

Eric: That’s because you are. You’re an integral part of this family at any gathering we have. More than anyone realizes.

Luna: This house and this room, it has such a warm place in my heart.

Rj: Yeah, mine too. I mean, the first time we ever laid eyes on each other, it was like right here.

Luna: Yeah.

Rj: Yeah.

[ Luna chuckles ] I’m uh, I wanted to tell you that I’m glad that, you know, we waited to take the next step in our relationship.

Luna: Yeah, me too. It made our night even more special.

Rj: You’re special.

Luna: I can’t wait to be alone with you again.

Rj: Is it hot in here? It’s a little hot in here. Is it just me? Do you want a drink? I’m gonna go get us drinks. I’ll be right back.

Zende: Having fun?

Luna: Oh, yeah. Yeah, it’s a great party. What about you?

Zende: Yeah. Yeah, I’m, uh, I’m enjoying it a lot more now.

Bill: I knew rj and luna were seeing each other. I didn’t realize it had progressed to the “I love you” stage.

Poppy: Well, it’s still pretty new, but it’s progressing quite well. They’ve already been through so much together, dealing with eric’s health condition. And, um, it really bonded them.

Bill: Well, I’m happy that luna’s happy. And that her beautiful mom is happy as well.

Zende: You are just beautiful. Rj is a very lucky man.

Luna: Thank you.

Rj: Hi.

Luna: Hi.

Rj: For you.

Luna: Thank you.

Zende: I was just telling luna how amazing she looks.

Rj: Yeah, she does.

Zende: Hey, I gotta give you guys props for all you did to support granddad when he was sick. Especially when none of us knew that he was sick.

Rj: Thank you. Thank you for saying that, zende. I appreciate it. Luna was, I mean, as always, she’s– she’s an incredible help. And, um, you know, we’re lucky. Lucky those days are behind us and granddad’s doing better.

Zende: I’ll drink to that.

Eric: All right, everybody. Attention. If I could have your attention for a moment.

Rj: Uh-oh. Pay attention, everyone. Granddad is about to make a toast.

Ridge: This may take a minute. Might as well take a seat.

Brooke: Oh.

Eric: Look, very funny, you two, very funny.

Ridge: I’m sorry. Dad, I’m really glad to be here. I can’t wait to see how this beautiful evening unfolds.

Eric: All right.

Donna: May I, um, say something, actually?

Eric: Well, sure.

Donna: Yeah. Uh, wow, um… I, uh, I don’t even know where to begin, I– I feel like, um, I’ve been with you forever. Yet it feels like we’re only getting started. I’m so grateful for every single precious moment I get to share with you. You nourish my soul, eric. You– you’ve completely transformed my life. All of our– our lives. And we’re here today to honor you.

Eric: Thank you. Thank you, donna. But I respectfully disagree. It’s not about me. This is all about you tonight, donna. About you and our life together into the future. That’s what this is about. Yeah, I wouldn’t be here, uh, at all, tonight, if it wasn’t for all the love and the kindness that I felt from everyone here. But no one more than you. No one more than you, my– my wonderful donna. You’re the person that stood by my side through this whole difficult time, and I– and I appreciate that. I know it hasn’t been easy. But every time you pleaded with me to go to the hospital, I– I absolutely refused.

Donna: Yes, you did.

Eric: You didn’t give up on me. And I’m never gonna give up on you either. And so, that’s what tonight is all about. It’s about you, wonderful donna logan. You’ve given me so much humor and warmth and love. And you’ve given me the desire to live every day, to live another day. And another day after that, and another after that, and to live every day with you by my side. Until the end.

Donna: The end.

Eric: You never ask anything from me. And you give everything you are, to me. It’s time for me to give back.

Donna: What?

Eric: Ridge, give me a hand here. Yeah, thanks. I can do this. I can do this.

Donna: What are you doing? What are you doing?

Eric: Something I should’ve done a long time ago, donna. You’re everything to me. You’re my rock and you’re my– my well of happiness. I– I want you to be my wife. Will you? Ridge, give me, give me, here. Yeah. Marry me, donna.

Donna: Eric…

Eric: Will you marry me? Will you marry your, uh… will you marry your honey bear?

Eric: Yes, yes, thank you very much. Yeah, thanks.

Donna: Caterer’s all set.

Eric: I– I love how they’re ready to go at a moment’s notice. It’s terrific.

Donna: Well, they’re not the only ones, mr. Insta-party.

Eric: Yeah, well, we have a lot to celebrate. I won’t deny that.

Donna: I know, eric. Your progress is remarkable and it’s wonderful, but you’re not all the way back. And I worry about you taking on too much too soon and this party could be–

Eric: This party is exactly what the doctor ordered, even if he didn’t actually say it. Donna, I love that you worry about me. Thank you. But I want you to stop, okay? We’re gonna have a party tonight and it’s a party to celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together.

Donna: Okay.

Brooke: Oh, it’s good to see you smile again.

Ridge: This was a rough road. My dad getting sick. And me having to make decisions for him. I’m just glad it’s behind us.

Brooke: Yeah, he’s on the road to recovery.

Ridge: Yeah.

Carter: You wanted to see me?

Ridge: Yes. Finn came by the house and the treatment’s working. Dad’s doing great.

Carter: Oh, man, that’s incredible, ridge. I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting to hear this news.

Ridge: I know, I know.

Rj: You know what I think? I think we deserve a medal. Or a comp day, at least. You know, I can’t believe the discipline and the restraint it took us to leave the beach house this morning. I mean, seriously, like, honestly, what do you have to do to win a statue around here, really? Seriously, though, that was the best first night in a new place, ever.

Luna: It was perfect. You were perfect. I’m so glad I waited for you. The man I love.

Rj: You know, I really did not want to get out of bed this morning. You know, the only reason that I did was to speak to my grandfather about the whole party, celebrating his positive prognosis, which is a party that you, my dear, are invited to.

Luna: I know. I’m blown away. I mean, a beach house in malibu and now a forrester family party? And you? None of this feels real.

Rj: Well, get used to it. It’s your life.

Luna: By the way, I– I texted my mom and she’s on her way over here. I’ve never stayed out all night before, so I don’t know how she’s going to react, but I’m not gonna worry about that. Because last night with you was everything and more than I could have ever dreamed my first time would be like. And that’s all I want to think about right now.

Zende: Granddad, that is such great news. And I got your text. What’s this about a party?

Eric: Oh, we’re gonna celebrate. We’re going to celebrate life, you know? No more wasting time. Letting time slip away. You know? There’s uh– not one day is actually promised to any one of us. Not one day. I don’t want to waste another second. Not another moment that I could be spending with my beautiful donna.

Carter: I can’t wait to congratulate eric on the amazing news.

Ridge: You don’t have to wait. There’s a party tonight and you’re invited.

Katie: Yeah, I just heard from donna. She texted me. And I’m thrilled that eric got positive news from finn and the medical team, but should we be having a party? He just got out of the hospital.

Carter: She has a point.

Brooke: I agree.

Ridge: I do too, but dad has set his mind on it, so try changing it.

Katie: All right, I guess we’re having a party.

When your gut is

out of balance,

Ridge: Dad’s gonna be okay. That’s good.

Katie: Why am I hearing a but?

Ridge: Because I’m not sure that he should be having a party right now. I don’t know if he has the stamina for it.

Carter: Is there any chance that eric might consider putting it off?

[ Brooke laughs ]

Brooke: Really? Have you met eric?

Katie: Mm. Very true.

Donna: Hi.

Brooke: I’m surprised to see you here.

Donna: Well, um, eric wanted me to spread the news about tonight.


Eric: The forrester men. What a club. And you’re a card-carrying member too, carter.

Carter: Well, I’m honored, I’m honored. And it’s so good to hear about your prognosis, eric.

Eric: Thank you.

Ridge: We heard about your party, too?

Eric: Yes, yeah. You’re coming, right?

Carter: I wouldn’t miss it.

Eric: Good. I’m glad to hear it. Look, I’d like to talk to the two of you in private. Excuse us for a minute. Come here. I wanna talk to you.

Ridge: Okay.

Zende: Granddad’s really making his way back.

Rj: Yeah. No, it’s amazing with, uh, everything he’s been through. It’s really impressive. It’s not surprising, though. ‘Cause he is our grandfather, right?

Zende: Yeah. Hey, rj, I realize that things have been tense between us lately. I just wanted to say, for what it’s worth, I meant what I said. Luna is remarkable. She is a unique, talented, very beautiful woman. And you, cousin, you’re an insanely lucky man.

Poppy: I’ve never seen you quite like this. You’re all lit from within.

Luna: I’ve– I’ve never felt like this before. I didn’t even know that this was possible.

Poppy: Love looks beautiful on you, honey. And that’s what you’re telling me, right? That you’re in love with rj?

Luna: Yeah. I mean, how could I not be? Rj’s, like, the most incredible man ever. And last night, mom, last night was just perfect. I mean, first of all, the beach house. Like, don’t even get me started on that.

Poppy: It is quite a place. I mean, you couldn’t design a more romantic setting.

Luna: And rj made it even more so. I mean, he had the table set, candles lit, my favorite food delivered. The sound of the waves crashing in the back.

Rj: I love you.

Luna: I love you too. I’m just– I’m really happy that I waited to be with the man I love. And I do, mom. I love rj so much. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Rj: No, believe me, I– I know how lucky I am to be with luna. I’ll tell you something else. I’m never gonna let her go.

Poppy: Why would I be happy for you? You moved to L.A. With a suitcase and a dream. Alone. No connections. Right, well, I guess you had your aunt li, but I know she doesn’t count. Then you had finn, but you didn’t ask him to pave your way. In fact, you didn’t even tell him you were here. Instead, you just marched right into forrester creations and you got yourself an internship. And if that wasn’t enough, you found love along the way. With a kind and decent man who doesn’t even try to hide how much he adores you. No, I’m not happy for you, luna. I am ecstatic. And I’m so very, very proud.

Luna: I can’t believe this is my life. And it’s all because of you, mom.

Poppy: Me? I didn’t do anything.

Luna: I mean, all of your encouragements. Ever since I was little. “You’re the best, luna. You’re the smartest, luna.” And here I am, in L.A., Living my best life, working at forrester creations. Taking night-time strolls in malibu with the best man in the world. And that’s what I’m most grateful for. The love that I’m experiencing with rj. It’s– it’s the greatest gift.

Rj: I just want to tell you too, you know, I know that we haven’t been seeing things the same way recently. And I just want you to know that I really value you. And, I mean, not just as a designer, and zende, you’re an incredible designer, you know that. But, as my cousin, you know? You’re family. That’s– that’s never gonna change.

Zende: I appreciate that.

Ridge: Here’s a big shocker. The party is still on.

Zende: Was there ever any doubt?

Eric: No.

Ridge: Tried to talk him out of it, at least wait a couple of weeks to gain some strength.

Carter: And ridge got nowhere.

Eric: And why would we? Why would we do that? Not do the party and then tomorrow I could be walking by that portrait, it could fall on my head.

Ridge: That’s not very likely, but…

Eric: Yeah, it could happen.

Ridge: It could happen. So, I mean, look what happened to me a couple of months ago. Designing, and then my hand starts shaking, and I can’t work, and then I– I need all the help I can get. And– and donna helps me, and then I get finn to help me, and then I see stephanie, I go to the other side, and I see her and– and I told donna, that’s it. That’s it. From now on, I’m living my life a different way. It’s carpe diem, every day.

Ridge: Okay, all right. You wanna have a party, we’re gonna have a party. I told you, we’re gonna do it. Okay?

Eric: Okay.

Ridge: I think I speak for everyone if I say we’re gonna have a party with you as often as we can.

Carter: Hear, hear.

Zende: Absolutely.

Rj: Hey, granddad, we love you.

Donna: I just can’t help being concerned about eric.

Katie: We understand what you’re going through. You’ve been traumatized. Eric’s sudden illness. You thought he was gonna die, but he’s gonna be fine now.

Donna: Yeah.

Brooke: He just needs a little bit more time, and he’ll be back to the eric that we all adore.

Donna: Yeah. Yeah, I just– I just love him so much, you know? And he’s just always been the one for me.

Eric: You are beautiful.

Donna: It’s about time your handsome face hung above the fireplace.

Eric: Wow.

[ Chuckling ] Look at that.

Katie: Well, you and eric have definitely stood the test of time.

Brooke: You have a beautiful and colorful history together. And you have been so devoted to him.

Donna: I would do anything for my honey bear.

Katie: Ah.

[ Brooke chuckles ]

Donna: I just want as much time as possible with him. That’s all. As much time as possible.

Eric: I’m proud to be a member of this group right here. The love and support that I have felt from all of you through all of this has meant more to me than you can know. But I’m not leaving you yet. I have a lot more living to do. Tonight is the beginning of the rest of my life.

[ Upbeat music ]

Rj: Good morning.

Luna: Have you been awake long?

Rj: A while.

Luna: What? You’ve just been watching me?

Rj: It’s just really hard not to.

Luna: Last night was…

Rj: Yeah, it sure was.

Luna: It’s more than I could have ever dreamed of.

[ Eric sighs ]

Donna: Hey. Are you hungry?

Eric: Uh, no. Actually, thanks. Not right now. Not right now.

Ridge: Hey.

Eric: Shouldn’t you two be at the office? Don’t you have that big important meeting with ronaldo this morning?

Ridge: How do you know about that?

Brooke: Are you spying on us?

Eric: Yeah, if you’d let me come into the office, I wouldn’t have to.

Ridge: We’d love to have you in the office. It’s not the same without you there.

Eric: I should certainly hope not. +Brooke: We do miss you and your sunny disposition. But there is this issue of your health.

Eric: Yes, we should be getting some news about that pretty soon. Finn’s on his way over here with my… my long-term prognosis. But then you two already know that, don’t you? That’s why they’re here, isn’t it?

Donna: Because we said no more secrets.

Eric: Yeah. Well… I’m happy for the company. I’m just hoping for some good news.

Ridge: Dad, you fought hard. You deserve this.

Finn: Hey, eric. I… I just let myself in.

Eric: We’re expecting you. I need to hear this news. What’s the… what’s my long-term prognosis?

Luna: Mm.

Rj: What? What is it? What– what’s wrong? Are you– you don’t need to check your breath. You’re fine. Hey, luna. Seriously, it’s okay. Come on, with how close we are after last night?

Luna: Well, I wouldn’t want to do anything to turn you off.

Rj: Turn– that is impossible. Okay? You’re stuck with me.

Finn: So, I met with the medical team.

Eric: And?

Finn: And, you know, as you know, we’ve… had a battery of extensive testing.

Eric: So, what is it? I mean, am I gonna get better? I’m gonna get back to full strength? Am I– how’s my quality of life gonna be? What–

Finn: Eric, your markers are right in line.

[ Donna gasps ] They’re better than what we had hoped.

Donna: Oh! Crack the science of stronger hair.

Rj: How do you feel?

Luna: Um, truthfully?

Rj: Yeah?

Luna: I don’t really know how to put it into words. Like… all of these emotions are hitting me at the same time. The… waking up with you in your bed and lying in your arms. Um…

Rj: Go on.

Luna: Part of me wondered if I’d feel the same afterwards.

Rj: The same how?

Luna: I don’t know. Like, maybe I’d feel like I– I lost something? Something special that I’ve been holding onto for years, but… it’s not like that. I mean, it definitely doesn’t feel the same. Like… I feel different. Like… more of a woman. More connected to another person. More connected than I ever knew possible. It was beautiful. You’re beautiful, rj.

Ridge: So, this is it. We can all breathe again. The procedure was a success.

Eric: I– I think this is cause for celebration, really.

Finn: It most definitely is. But small note of caution, you need to remain diligent, okay? As wonderful news as this is, you need to keep on the right track.

Donna: Oh, he will, won’t you, sweetheart?

Eric: Of course.

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: And see, this is exactly what I would expect from a medical dream team.

Brooke: And you’re keeping bridget apprised too, I assume.

Finn: Oh, yeah, of course. And to say that she was delighted and relieved would be an understatement.

Brooke: Meanwhile, you have your whole family to support you.

Ridge: Or whatever else you need.

Eric: Yeah, well, what I need is to get back to work. I need to design. I need to be creative.

Donna: He was up early sketching away.

Eric: Yeah, but not too early, though, I know. I agree that I’m– I’m going along with getting a lot of rest.

Ridge: See, that is your model patient right here.

Finn: What your father has done, the effort, the determination, that’s what’s made the difference. I mean, that’s why he is where he is today.

Ridge: You hear that? The whole medical community is impressed by you.

Donna: Well, you certainly impressed all of us.

Brooke: We are all blessed, eric. It wasn’t so long ago when you were struggling, facing what you were. And in the darkest hour, finn really came through for us.

Finn: Everyone had a part. You know, everyone was pulling their own weight. Especially this guy. Right there.

Eric: Now, finn, you– you saved my life. You did. And I thank you for that. And I’m gonna live this life the best way I can. I promise you that. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Eric: And just like that, finn has gone back to the hospital to save more lives.

Donna: No doctor is more dedicated.

Ridge: My daughter found herself a good one.

Brooke: I think we’re all grateful that finn’s a part of our lives, especially since he brought you back to us, eric.

Eric: I have to say, a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I was worried about this. Been a long journey, you know. Every step– every step of it, just so challenging, you know.

Donna: It’s true, but you faced it head-on, and look where you are now.

Brooke: You’re here. You’re here with family. The people who love you.

Ridge: You’re right. He’s loved. Deeply loved.

Donna: Okay, I know how excited we all are.

[ Laughter ] But, um, I really think that you should lie down and rest. You were up at the crack of dawn sketching that.

Eric: Yeah, I was. I’m still invigorated. I mean, that’s what happens when you get good news like this, you know, it’s invigorating and, you know.

Donna: Eric, please, honey bear.

Eric: Look, I want to celebrate this. I– I just feel wonderful. Why– why don’t we, uh… this is cause for a celebration. I want to have a party. That’s what I want to do. Let’s throw a party.

Donna: Okay, I– I understand your enthusiasm and, you know, I’m– we’re all feeling it.

Eric: Good, good.

Donna: But I’m just not sure a party’s a good idea right now. I mean, yes, we got some positive news, but, um…

Brooke: But I think you really need to take it easy.

Eric: I will. I’ll take it easy. I will. But, uh, I definitely think this is a reason for us to celebrate. Let’s have a party. Tonight.

Ridge: He’s right about that. He’s right.

Eric: I am, right?

Ridge: Tomorrow night.

Eric: Tonight. Tonight. Let’s do it.

Ridge: Not tonight.

Eric: Yes. I know it’s short notice and people are gonna have a hard time showing up. It can be small. It can just be us. That would be all right. My… my objective is to celebrate, and I don’t wanna just celebrate me. I wanna… I want to celebrate you. You’ve been standing next to me so close through all of this, and– and– and you’re a big reason that I’m here right now. And so… I love you, donna.

Donna: I love you too.

Eric: So I– I– I… I want you to be there, and I want you to be there, and I want, uh… I want katie to come too. She’s a big part of this too. So katie and brooke and you, the logan sisters. That would be a good party right there, wouldn’t it? And rj. Rj has to be here too. Absolutely.

Brooke: Of course. Yes, rj would love it.

Eric: Well, then, all right. I’m gonna call him right now. I’m gonna call him. Where’s my phone?

Rj: Can I get you anything? You want coffee or something to eat? I can– I’m not bragging, but I can make a very decent omelet.

Luna: Wait, I saw that post. It was, um, right outside of paris, right?

Rj: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I, uh– confession though. I– real life versus social media, I think it took me 11 tries to get an omelet that was, like, postable.

[ Laughs ]

Luna: Thank you. Good right here.

Rj: I’m sorry.

Luna: What?

Rj: I don’t know. I’m just staring at you. Literally, I cannot take my eyes off you.

Luna: I don’t want you to. I mean, I could stay like this forever.

Rj: Oh, yeah? Well, you know what that would mean? That would mean that we never get out of this bed.

Luna: Yeah, I think I could handle that.

Rj: Oh, yeah? You think you could handle that?

Luna: Yeah. [ Chuckles ] I feel so close to you. After last night. Closer than I ever knew possible.

[ Phone ringing ]

Rj: I’m so sorry. I would never answer this right now, I swear. I just– I know the ringtone. It’s my grandfather. I’d–

Luna: It’s okay. It’s okay. Go for it.

[ Ringing continues ] Hey, granddad. What’s up?

Eric: Finn was just here, yeah, and he gave me a clean bill of health.

Rj: Really? Oh, that’s– that’s awesome. Uh, tell me– tell me everything.

Eric: Well, I will, but first things first. I want to invite you to a forrester family party here tonight. I want you to be there.

Rj: Okay. Tonight? Yeah. I’ll definitely be there.

Eric: Good. Any chance luna’s there with you?

Rj: Um… yeah. As a matter of fact, she is. Uh, why?

Eric: Yeah, good. I want you to bring her with you, all right?

Rj: Really?

Eric: Yeah. You love her, don’t you?

Rj: I do.

Eric: Good. Look, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past few months is that, uh… in this life is that love is everything. If you love somebody, you hang on to her, all right? Don’t let her go.

Rj: That’s exactly what I intend to do. Thank you, granddad. I’ll, uh… I’ll see you tonight. And– and congratulations again on the news.

Luna: So, was that about your grandfather’s prognosis?

Rj: It was, and he got some great news, which is awesome.

Luna: Oh, that’s wonderful. I’m so happy.

Rj: Yeah. Uh, and, uh, he also said that there’s gonna be a forrester family party tonight to celebrate, of course.

Luna: That’s cool. You should definitely go.

Rj: Yeah. Well, I am. And so are you. ()

Brooke: So, rj’s coming?

Eric: Yes. It looks like luna will be too.

Ridge: Oh, well, she should. She found your trusty stapler.

Eric: Yes, she did. It’s a wonderful thing she did. Yeah, let’s give her a raise. What do you say? Right?

Ridge: Okay, I’ll look into it.

Donna: Okay, okay. I– I don’t mean to keep harping here, but, um, are you sure you’re up for this? I mean, we could just have a party in a week or two.

Eric: No, no, no, no. No waiting. I feel like this has been a long time coming.

Luna: Wait, so fill me in. What happened?

Rj: Granddad asked me if you were here, so I said yes, and then he invited you to the party.

Luna: Me?

Rj: Yeah. Well, it’s not the first one you’ve been to. You went to the last one.

Luna: Yeah, I know, but I just assumed that that was kind of like a courtesy thing. Or because we were dating or because I helped out on the line. So, you’re telling me that your grandfather, eric forrester, specifically invited me to the family party.

Rj: Yeah, he did. You know what else he asked me? If I love you. You know what I told him?

Luna: That you do?

Rj: It’s just the beauty and the brains, it’s just, it’s such a lethal combo, you know? He also said something really wise to me. That he learned over the last few months just how precious love is. And how I should hold on to the one I love and never let go.

Luna: I love you.

Rj: I love you too.

Ridge: Well, donna and brooke, they’re all in. They already figured out the menu for your party.

[ Eric chuckles ]

Eric: No surprise there. It’s gonna be a wonderful party, I have no doubt about that. It’s gonna be terrific. What?

Ridge: Nothing. It’s just, it’s nice to see you like this. Full of life, energy.

Eric: Yeah. I am full of life. Maybe not completely back. You know, I’m not sure that I’m ever gonna be… a hundred percent again, but, uh… I’m gonna do the best I can. I really am.

Ridge: But you do have the one thing that every person wants. You’re loved.

Eric: Yeah. Never gonna take that for granted again, I’m not. What happened to me changed my life forever.

Ridge: What happened to you? Like when you went on your little trip?

Eric: When I went to the other side, ridge. I went there. There was– there was a feeling of love and peace there that I’ve… I’ve never experienced anytime in my life, and it felt… I felt like I was truly home there. Seeing your mother and– and the people that I knew in my life. I felt like I was home there. And that I was loved there. And I just hope to bring that feeling of love and peace… here. To, uh… to the rest of my life.

Thomas: Let’s do it, hope. Spend our life together. Take that ring off your necklace. Put it on this finger. The way we look at each other. We love each other. We want this. Raising the kids together, husband and wife. Say yes, hope. Say you’ll marry me.

Eric: Well, here’s what I’m hoping for. A positive prognosis tomorrow when we see the doctor. That’s what I want.

Donna: But you had some good ones back at the hospital.

Eric: I know positivity is very important. And I feel better. I feel– I feel better every day. I really do. Although, it’s, uh… it’s not like I’ll be running a marathon again very soon.

Katie: Again?

[ Donna scoffs ]

Eric: All right, ever, if you want to get technical about it. No, no, I do– I do feel better every day. That’s a good sign, right?

Donna: Of course, it’s a good sign, yes. Look, all the tests and the blood work and the meds, it’s all gonna be worth it.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Because this procedure worked and tomorrow, you’re gonna have a good prognosis.

Katie: You’ve been through so much. You both have. If anyone deserves a little good news, it’s the two of you.

Luna: First night in your new rental. You excited?

Rj: Yeah. Less about the place, though. More who I’m with.

Luna: Well, what I’m excited for is that we get to finally be alone together.

Rj: Finally.

Luna: Finally. [ Chuckles ]

[ Knocking ]

Rj: I’m just kidding. I’m joking.

Luna: Oh, my god.

[ Both laughing ]

Rj: We are absolutely… alone.

Katie: There’s no reason to think that tomorrow won’t be good. You’ve been back to the hospital several times now for check-ups, and finn is taking remarkable care of you.

Donna: Yeah, he certainly is. And I am eternally grateful to him and bridget.

Katie: Yeah.

Eric: Yeah, we all are. And we will continue to be.

Donna: You are not going anywhere, okay? You still have a lot more living to do, okay? Come here.

Rj: You know, I remember the first time that I met you.

Luna: What, at um, at your grandfather’s house?

Rj: Mm-hmm. I tried to hide it, but you took my breath away.

Luna: Well, I was too busy being a nervous intern walking into the forrester estate, so…

Rj: You know, I knew there was something special about you. I just had to prove it. Like, I just had to figure out what it was, but… now I’ve got all the proof I need. I feel so close to you.

Luna: I feel close to you, too. I always feel so safe and secure whenever I’m with you.

Hope: I adore you. And you are so, so important to me in my life. But thomas, I– I asked for some time and I still need some time.

Thomas: It’s okay. I understand.

Hope: Do you?

Thomas: Yeah, no, I do. We have plenty of time. Look, when you say yes, I want you to be fully committed to the idea of us. 100% in. And that’s gonna happen. I know it, ’cause I– I can see how we look at each other, how we love each other. Hope… I know we’re gonna spend the rest of our lives together. Hey… it’s me! Your dry skin!

Thomas: How settled in are you?

Hope: What do you mean?

[ Thomas clears throat ]

Thomas: Just, uh, I’m wondering if I can convince you to head over to granddad’s with me.

Hope: Of course, but is something wrong? I mean, I know he’s getting some news from the doctor’s tomorrow.

Thomas: Yeah, no, I mean, I don’t think anything’s wrong. Uh, look, my dad texted, and he was planning on going over to granddad’s with your mom, actually, but they’re stuck on one of those international calls that never ends, and so he asked me to go instead.

Hope: Well, I’d be happy to. And honestly, I think eric is probably feeling a little nervous about whatever he’s gonna find out tomorrow, so I’d love to be there for him. It would be nice for us to show a little family support. What? [ Laughs ]

Thomas: Just you. You’re so beautiful. Inside and out. It’S… every time I think about you, I think about your name, and… I know it’s cheesy. It is, but I want hope. Hope for the future. And that makes me think about the hope for our future. The future that we’re gonna share someday.

Zende: I was thrilled to get your text. I was like, party across the courtyard? Of course, I’m walking over.

Eric: No, no, I didn’t say “party,” I didn’t say that. I just thought if he wasn’t busy, he could…

Donna: Uh-huh. What’s this about a party?

Eric: No, well, ridge called and said that thomas might be coming over. And I thought that since katie’s here already, that we could just kind of have a get-together like that.

Katie: Well, I say, yes. Let’s turn the music on. This place just got a lot more interesting.

Donna: Okay, okay, all right. You should be resting.

Eric: Yeah.

Zende: It looks like I got you in trouble, granddad. Maybe I should just head on back to the office.

Eric: No, no, no, no. We have something to celebrate. I’m going to the doctor tomorrow, I’m gonna get a positive prognosis about all this stuff here.

Zende: Yeah, you got this, granddad.

Eric: Yeah, I do. Especially surrounded by this wonderful family.

Zende: Is rj coming too? I assume you texted him.

Eric: No, rj has plans tonight. Something with luna.

Luna: Mm, that was so good. Thank you. I mean, delivery from my favorite restaurant? You’re getting all the brownie points tonight.

Rj: I do have a confession, though. I was nervous about that order. I didn’t know if I got it right.

Luna: No, you did good. I mean, you know me so well.

Rj: Yes, I do. I, um, yeah, I still feel like I have a lot to learn, though.

Luna: What, about my food preferences?

Rj: Yes, yes. Those specifically. Just– you’re just beautifully fascinating.

Luna: Fascinating?

Rj: Yeah. [ Chuckles ] You know, I’ve– I’ve traveled the world and I’ve met so many people. Nobody has been able to capture my imagination and my heart like you do. You jimmys john’s still waking up

[ Hope laughs ]

Hope: I mean, it still amazes me. Every time we come in here, it’s like you’re happier and healthier than ever. I still couldn’t believe it when we walked in the other day and you were playing the piano.

Thomas: I know. Best feeling ever.

Eric: I got through a little bit of it before I had to quit.

Thomas: You definitely did.

Eric: Well, I’m doing better. I’m just– I’m not completely cured. I think I have a long way to go. I really do.

Donna: Well, hopefully when we hear from finn, it’ll be the first step in the right direction in a full recovery.

Eric: Yeah.

Hope: Um, actually, do you mind if I text rj and invite him over? I just– I think he would really love to be here.

Katie: I think he has plans tonight.

Eric: Yeah, a special evening with luna that I insisted he not change.

Thomas: Ah. Is he, uh, settling into the new digs?

>>Donna: Didn’t he, uh, rent from bill spencer?

Hope: Yep, the beach house.

Zende: Lucky for rj.

Eric: I agree with that. I think that’s terrific. I mean, any young person needs to move out of their parents’ house sooner or later. And with what’s going on with– with him and luna, you can imagine the, uh, the memories they’re gonna make. Young love. It’s wonderful.

Luna: I cannot believe my life right now. I mean, is this– is this really happening? I– I– I– get an internship at forrester, which is like my dream job. And then what happens? I meet the coolest guy. The guy that I just walked hand-in-hand with at the beach. In malibu. Malibu. Like, is this really happening right now? It’s like… in the blink of an eye, my entire world shifted.

Rj: I feel the exact same way. My world shifted, and… god, you’re just beautiful.

[ Luna gasps ]

Luna: Oh, my god. How did you…

Rj: I, uh, I just– I just wanted this to be beautiful. I wanted it to be everything that you ever imagined.

Luna: You’re everything I ever imagined. So kind and handsome and funny. Who understands me and… trusts and respects me. And loves me.

Rj: I love you.

Luna: I love you too. Hi, I’m greg.

Eric: Look at me waxing on about, uh, young love. Sometimes, the love you find later in life can be even more fulfilling, darling.

Thomas: Hey, zende.

Zende: Yeah?

Thomas: Did you, by chance, uh, get those designs over to rj, like I asked?

Zende: I did.

Thomas: Yeah? I actually got a good look at his new love shack. I was a bit surprised to learn that rj is renting a multimillion dollar house on the beach. He’s, uh, he’s an incredibly lucky guy, so I guess you can’t blame him for that, right? Everything just seems to fall into his lap. Including luna.

Hope: Oh. Well, I’m sure luna feels lucky to be with a sweet man like rj, and it is pretty clear that they care about each other.

Zende: Sure. Yeah, clear as day.

Luna: Rj, that was… wow.

Rj: Are you okay?

Luna: Yeah. That was amazing. You were amazing. I used to dream about this, you know? My first time, and what it would be like. But what we just shared, that was… that was more than I could have ever imagined.

Rj: You’re so beautiful.

Luna: I’ve never felt closer to anyone than I do to you right now. I just– I want you to hold me in your arms and never let me go.

Rj: I love you.

Luna: I love you too.

[ Relaxing music ]

Steffy: This is a nice surprise.

Finn: You think you’re gonna be working late?

Steffy: Mm… not anymore.

Finn: It’s– it’s too bad we can’t sneak away when you come to the hospital.

Steffy: You know how much I’d love that? Mm-hmm.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: I’m so happy you’re here.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: How’s my, uh… how’s my grandfather?

Finn: Well, we’ve run some more tests and we’ll know more about his long-term prognosis soon.

Steffy: Oh, gosh, I am just so, so grateful. I mean, yes, I’M… I’m still nervous.

Finn: I know.

Steffy: Granddad’s the cornerstone of our family. But you saved his life.

Ridge: There he is.

Finn: Hey.

Ridge: The man of the hour. I feel like I haven’t said it enough. I just– I– we owe you… a great debt. You– you’re, um, what you did was amazing, and it just makes me realize how fleeting these moments are and how lucky we are to be here.

Steffy: Hey, are… what’s going on?

Ridge: Nothing. I’m all right. I’m just thanking him and, um… had a bit of a discussion with brooke about the usual thing.

Steffy: Let me guess. It’s about hope and thomas. Of course.

[ Sighs heavily ]

Zende: Wow. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. Now this… this is something special, rj.

Rj: Yeah, I’m feeling really good about it.

Luna: Yeah, it’s amazing.

Zende: You know that this is some of the most expensive real estate in the world?

Rj: Yeah, it’s probably why bill actually didn’t even want to get rid of it. I’m renting it from spencer, of all people, right?

[ Zende laughs ]

Zende: Yeah, I, uh, I doubt that dollar bill would be cutting you a deal on this. A multimillion dollar home in malibu? Now, granddad, he must have cut you a huge bonus for you to be able to swing this place. Oh, hold on a second. What am I saying? It’s not coming out of your pocket. Ridge and brooke are so happy to have their son back home, I’m sure they’re paying for it, aren’t they?

Luna: Hey, you guys are family, and I hate to see this tension or rivalry or whatever it is.

Zende: There’s no rivalry. I’ve already made a name for myself in this business. You’re just starting out. But it must be nice having the great ridge forrester giving you a boost.

Ridge: It’s okay. Just brooke and I had a bit of a difference of opinion.

Steffy: About hope and thomas? What? Something happened?

Finn: Something bad?

Ridge: No. It’s not– well, I don’t know. It’s not bad. It’s, uh… it was unexpected.

Steffy: Oh, great. Now, I’m afraid to ask.

Ridge: Your brother proposed.

[ Thomas chuckles ]

Thomas: That was amazing.

Hope: I’ve, uh… I’ve never felt this way before. I don’t know what it is, but I just… I can’t get enough of you.

[Coughing] I– of c me such a hard t

Zende: Don’t misunderstand me, rj. I’m proud to be a part of this family. I know you are, too.

Rj: Then why are you giving me such a hard time about it, zende?

Zende: Because I don’t think you realize how lucky you are.

Rj: How lucky I am? I– of course I do. I do.

Zende: Look, man, I wasn’t born into all of this the way you were. My life could have turned out very differently. I was left alone at an orphanage in africa. I was a scared, helpless little kid. I had no one. I lost both my parents. Until kristen, your aunt, adopted me. She has been a wonderful mother. She and my father, they love me. They support everything I’ve done. Always have.

Luna: And they’re both designers too.

Zende: Yes, they’re great ones. But they don’t live in L.A. My mother is not here to have my back the way ridge has yours. Your parents run the company. Brooke and ridge are fashion royalty, and you’re the little prince.

Luna: No one treats rj like that, zende. I mean, he works just as hard as–

Zende: I know. I know he works, okay? And honestly, you guys did tear it up in preparation for the fashion showdown, but that isn’t the point I’m trying to make. I’m trying to make you understand where I’m coming from. I’m older than you. I have more experience. I’ve studied design for years. You’re just a couple months into it, learning at the knee of your dad and granddad. Be real, man. If you were in my shoes, you’d be frustrated too.

Finn: And so, thomas had the ring in his pocket?

Ridge: Apparently, he proposed right in the office.

Steffy: That is so romantic.

Ridge: Oh, come on.

Finn: It’s a good thing hope is at least giving it some thought.

Steffy: Oh, she’s not gonna forget about it because it’s a necklace with a ring on it wrapped around her neck.

Ridge: Steffy…

Steffy: So cool.

Ridge: It’s a symbol of his commitment. Give him a break.

Steffy: Symbol of his commitment? Really? How long is this gonna take?

Ridge: I don– he’s gonna give her time so she can make up her own mind. That’s nice.

Steffy: Make up her own mind?

Ridge: Yes.

Steffy: Really? Okay, what if hope says no? What’s that gonna do to thomas? All of the progress he’s made? I mean, she has him just holding on. He’s like stuck in limbo. And I don’t think that’s a very healthy place to be.

Thomas: I’ve never experienced anything like this before. You, your intensity, your passion. You just continue to surprise me.

Hope: I don’t know. I think you bring it out in me.

Thomas: Mm.

Hope: Mm-hmm. This. I don’t know, it’s like it’s something… wild, uninhibited. And… you have a spark and it just ignites all of my desire. Ah mornings!

Steffy: Look, I’m always gonna have thomas’s back. But is this proposal a good idea? Or is it gonna throw him off track?

Finn: Well, you know where I stand. I’m just trying to be as supportive and understanding as I can be.

Ridge: Yeah, and sometimes that means taking a step back, letting grown-ups make their own mistakes.

Finn: He’s– he’s your brother, he’s your son, of course you want him to work this out, but I can’t help but feel for hope after everything that thomas has put her through in the past.

Ridge: Okay. He’s not the same man anymore. He worked hard. He– he deserves love. He’s– he’s worthy of it.

Steffy: I agree a thousand percent. But with hope?

[ Thomas and hope sighing ]

Hope: Wow. I don’t understand what has gotten into me. I can’t get enough of you.

[ Thomas chuckles ]

Rj: I see your perspective, zende, okay? And I just want to let you know that I respect the amount of passion that you have for design and for our company. And I get it. I see what you’re saying, right? You don’t want to be overlooked.

Zende: Or underestimated.

Rj: Or underestimated. Zende, you don’t have to worry about that, man. But I’m gonna give your designs a look, okay? I’ll probably learn a thing or two from them. All right? I will, uh… I’ll give them a look tomorrow morning.

Zende: Tomorrow morning? Because…

Rj: Yeah, I have plans with luna tonight.

Zende: Oh. Okay then. I look forward to hearing from you… tomorrow morning.

Rj: Hey, zende. I mean it. I get why you’re– you’re frustrated, okay? But luna’s right, dude. We’re family and we used to be really close. And I hope we can be again.

Zende: Have a nice night. Bye, luna.

Rj: Think he heard me?

Luna: I’m sorry. I know how much you hate being at odds with him.

Rj: Yeah. Well, there’s only one person I’m focused on tonight. Attention medicare beneficiaries…

Rj: Now, if there’s, uh… no more interruptions.

[ Luna laughs ]

Luna: Um… not yet.

Rj: What do you think? Think we broke the curse?

Luna: Oh, we’re not cursed. We’re just, um… we’re popular.

Rj: Tonight, I want you all for myself.

Luna: We’ve waited a long time for this. All my life.

Rj: Yeah. I want it to be a beautiful night. I want it to be perfect for you.

Luna: I want it to be a beautiful, perfect night too.

Steffy: I agree with you, dad. Thomas has changed, but he deserves to be with someone who truly appreciates him and loves him. Hope can’t give him that.

Finn: And you can’t blame her for being hesitant. So much has happened in the past.

Ridge: Let’s not worry about what happened in the past. Let’s just leave that behind us. Can we do that? Let’s worry about what’s happening now.

Steffy: Okay. Thomas is having a great time with hope, but maybe– maybe he should be with someone who gets excited when he puts a ring on their finger.

Ridge: How do you know she’s not excited? Listen, I get it. You’re looking out for your brother, you don’t want him to get hurt.

Steffy: He could, dad.

Ridge: Of course! We could all get hurt. That’s what happens. It’s– it’s love. There’s no guarantees. That’s why we gotta be positive. Look at the good things, not the bad things. It’s too easy to do that. Look at you guys. You went through a lot. You’re still going through it, but you’re good. You’re better than you were. Am I right? I’m with brooke. We’ve had our ups and downs for sure, but we’re still here. If your brother wants to find– if he wants to find some happiness, let him have it. If he thinks he can find it with hope, let him try.

Thomas: You’re so beautiful. This is what I want. All the time. Just to be with you, to love you, to touch you, kiss you.

[ Thomas sighing ] You say you don’t understand this. That’s ’cause you never had this before. Never been with a man who wants to be with you and only you. Who cherishes you. Someone you can trust. Someone who’s given you his heart. ‘Cause I have. I’ve given you my heart ’cause I trust you. And you can trust me too. You can trust me with your heart because I cherish it. I’m never gonna hurt it. You’ve experienced that pain before. But you never have to again. Hope… you can have that for the rest of your life. All you have to do is take this ring… off this necklace, put it on your finger. Say you’ll marry me, hope. Say you’ll be my wife.

Thomas: You know everything about me now. The good, the bad, everything. You have all of me. There’s never gonna be any secrets between us, never again, I promise. And you know, I have to believe that we have a wonderful future ahead. I have to believe that your mom is wrong. That you’re not gonna break my heart. Or give me back that ring.

Ridge: That’s what I needed. A little pick me upper.

Brooke: Me too. Why do I get the feeling there’s another reason why you wanted to see me?

Ridge: Well, I thought maybe we should talk about the news.

Brooke: Oh, yeah. The news. Thomas proposing to hope. Right. I spoke to her earlier.

Ridge: So did I. So, how do you feel about it? Or do I even need to ask?

Luna: My mom asked me to let it go, so I don’t want to think about who my father is anymore.

Rj: I hear you. Let’s– let’s drop it.

Luna: I mean, it’s not like the thought of who my father is hasn’t crossed my mind a million times before, but… I guess I just have to be okay with maybe never finding out.

Rj: Hey, I shouldn’t have pushed it. Now, though, we know it’s not bill spencer.

Luna: Yeah, we can definitely rule him out.

Rj: Hey, I uh, I know today’s been really stressful, but I would like to turn that around, if you’re okay with it. I planned a special night, just to get your mind off of it. And the beach house is finally mine. And, uh… I want to share it with you. Tonight.

Luna: We get to spend the night together? On the beach?

Rj: Mm-hmm. In the new house. Just the two of us.

Luna: That sounds amazing. Some privacy is exactly what we need.

[ Door opens ]

Charlie: Hello. [ Chuckles ] Rj. Hey, didn’t mean to crash the party, sorry. I just heard about the new malibu digs, huh? The old spencer beach house. My god, what a score! That place is unbeliev– you two are gonna be hanging ten real soon. Cowabunga, huh? Oh, hey, oh, here. Oh, here, okay. Okay, good luck.

Rj: Thanks.

Brooke: We agree on just about everything else.

Ridge: But not on this. Not when our kids want to move forward with something. Listen, here’s my point. They’ve been able to move past everything that they went through.

Brooke: Well, I don’t think she’ll ever be able to move past this. I mean, thomas, I worry about him. He really does love her. And his feelings are very fragile. What if he’s setting himself up for major pain and heartache?

Hope: You know, I’ve thought about this a lot. Your proposal. What it means. If I could even accept it. And, uh, my mom has certainly given her opinion. And now, so has ridge. But really, the only opinions that should matter are, um… thomas, I want to make something very clear. What you told me about that night… it was very hard for me to hear. And I… I wasn’t sure how to feel about the man back then. But you, it’s not just empty words. You’re a man of action and follow through. And you showed me over the years just how much you were willing to change and willing to do the work on yourself. And you really stepped up. Not just– not just for me or the job, but for the kids. I mean, that’s a testament to you, thomas. That’s strength. So, what I’m trying to say is you are not only a talented designer, an amazing father, a loyal man, but I do feel safe with you. I feel like I can give my heart to you. And I do believe in you, thomas. I was looking for some of the best

Ridge: Because thomas put himself out there, he put his heart on the line. Doesn’t mean it’s gonna work. I mean, there’s hundreds of stories about unrequited love. I’m just glad that wasn’t our story.

Brooke: Our story has a happy ending.

Ridge: Our story, young lady, hasn’t even started.

Zende: Hey, have you guys seen rj?

Charlie: Oh, he and– he and luna just elvis’d out of here.

Zende: Hm?

Charlie: They uh, left the building?

Zende: Well, that’s a bummer. I wanted to show him these designs that thomas and I collaborated on. Make sure they don’t step on his work on granddad’s line. I’ll just swing by your place. I’ll talk to him there.

Charlie: Not so fast, my friend. If you want to see rj, you’re gonna have to take the ten west to the one north. Five scenic miles and then turn left.

Zende: Wait, hold on, charlie why are you mapping me out to malibu?

Charlie: Well, that’s where rj’s new swanky beach pad is.

Zende: His new what?

Charlie: His casa del sando. His hacienda del beach-O.

Zende: Seriously? Rj has a new beach house?

Ridge: He’s renting it from bill, of all people.

Brooke: He didn’t buy it.

Zende: Not yet, anyway. Wow, at a ripe young age, rj is renting his own malibu home on the beach for a small fortune. Great. Rj really is the anointed one.

Charlie: What?

Luna: I still can’t believe this is officially your place.

Rj: Neither can I. Yet.

Luna: You checked all the rooms?

Rj: I did, and the beach. And your mom and bill aren’t out there stalking us, so…

Luna: And what about the garage?

Rj: That too, it’s all clear.

Luna: Okay, cool. So, we might actually have some solitude for once. And no one’s gonna like suddenly barge in on us. I think, um, I think we’re finally alone.

Rj: I think we are.

Luna: Do you happen to have like a mint or a gum or something?

Rj: You don’t need a mint.

Luna: I just want to be sure.

Rj: Do I need a mint?

Luna: No.

Rj: No?

Luna: No.

Rj: I think I have one right here for you, my dear.

Luna: Thank you.

Rj: You’re welcome. Good?

Luna: Mm-hmm. Okay, I’m ready.

Hope: I know you’re not the same guy you once were.

Thomas: I’m not. I got rid of that guy a long time ago.

[ Hope chuckles ] I trust you. And I have faith in you. And that means having faith in all the promises you’re making.

Thomas: Thank you hope. Thank you for seeing me. Seeing the man I am today, the man who loves you, cherishes you, and will for the rest of his life. It took me a long time. I changed from a person that I was into the man I am today and that took a lot of work.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Thomas: Yeah, I mean, it takes everyone work, and we all have to keep working. And I will keep working, ’cause I want to continue to prove to you and to everyone else that I am a man that is worthy of your love. And that ring, it’s more than just a ring. It’s a symbol, eternal love that I have for you. I’m going to keep loving you for the rest of my life. And I am so excited for that ring to be on your finger. And for you to be my wife. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

she wished there was a way to

make it last longer. a little resentful.

Brooke: What was that all about?

Ridge: Zende seems a little resentful.

Brooke: Well, I guess that’s understandable. I mean, eric did choose to confide in rj and work with him instead of zende.

Ridge: And then I asked rj to finish the line when dad was in the hospital. I asked zende too, but it’s–

Brooke: After the fact.

Ridge: Yeah, he didn’t like that.

Brooke: Our son is an accomplished young man. First, a social media sensation. And now, a designer at forrester creations.

Ridge: I think that’s zende’s point. You know, our son’s been given a lot of opportunities since he’s been back to los angeles.

Brooke: That’s true. He didn’t even want to be a part of this company in the first place.

Ridge: No. I don’t like that zende feels that way. He’s a very talented designer. And maybe dad didn’t pick him because he thought he had too much work to do with hope for the future.

Brooke: He does seem quite bothered about rj’s rapid rise to the top. And now, the beach house.

Ridge: I think zende just wants to be recognized. That’s all.

Luna: You’ve created such a beautiful, romantic time for us.

Rj: I wanted it to be perfect

Luna: And it is. I’ve, um, I’ve never felt more ready to take the next step. You know, I’ve been holding out for the right person. Someone caring and sensitive, and sexy.

Rj: You ready?

Luna: I am. For the first time in my life, I– I want to.

[ Knock on door ]

Luna: No way.

Rj: This isn’t real. You’re kidding me.

Luna: It’s fine. Just don’t answer it, and maybe they’ll go away.

Rj: Okay.

[ Knock on door ]

Luna: It’s fine. Just leave it. Maybe they’ll just leave.

Zende: Rj, it’s me, zende.

Rj: How does he know I’m even here?

Zende: Your car’s out front. Rj.

Rj: Maybe he just– maybe he won’t be here too long. Okay?

Luna: Okay.

Rj: Yeah.

Zende: Hey, man.

Rj: Hey.

Zende: I heard about your new place, sweet. Oh, hey, luna. I hope I’m not interrupting you guys.

Hope: I know where I stand with you. You have always been open and generous about how you feel. And I am so, so grateful for that. More than you know.

Thomas: I don’t want you to ever question how I feel about you.

Hope: I don’T. I know you love me. And I know you to be steadfast and true. And I can’t tell you how nice it is to be with a man where that is the reality. It’s just that, um…

Thomas: You are still having doubts? Yeah. But not about you. Not about us. Not about what we share. It’s just… it’s just the timing.

Thomas: Yeah. You’re not ready.

Hope: No. Not yet. So, in the meantime, I will continue to wear this beautiful ring right by my heart. And one day, maybe I will be ready for a commitment. But in the meantime, please know that I know you to be a good man. And a good father. With a good heart. And you make me feel like I… (vo) it’s ultimate endless shrimp with another limited-time

Rj: So, what’s up?

Zende: I have designs for you.

Rj: Oh, oh. So this, uh… this couldn’t wait until tomorrow?

Zende: I wanted to get them in your hands right away.

Rj: Oh, well, I’m a little busy right now, so I’ll take a look at them later.

Zende: All right.

Rj: You know, just out of curiosity, how did you know that I’m– I’m living here? I haven’t told a lot of people.

Zende: Charlie.

Luna: Charlie.

Rj: Charlie.

Zende: Yeah, when I couldn’t find you in the office, I was going to go over to brooke and ridge’s, but charlie let me know about the new house, and I figured I’d come check it out.

Luna: Yeah, yeah. It’s a really nice house.

Zende: Yeah, I’ll say. Man, your own spot in malibu’s billionaire beach. Nice work. And I love the décor.

Rj: Thank you, zende.

Zende: You know, you’re really living large, aren’t you?

Rj: Well, yeah, is it really that unusual, though? I mean, you could live like this if you wanted to.

Zende: I don’t know. Might be out of my budget. But not for you. Not for the golden child of brooke logan and ridge forrester.

Ridge: Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition.

Brooke: Well, let’s hope it’s only temporary.

Ridge: Okay, but they’ve got to figure that out. I’m not going to meddle. Not with them, or hope and thomas.

Brooke: That’s a different situation.

Ridge: No, it’s not. They’re adults. They can figure it out. They can make their own decisions.

Brooke: Thomas hasn’t always had the best judgment.

Ridge: Okay, that’s old news. We don’t need to talk about that.

Brooke: What if this decision to propose sets him back again?

Ridge: No, what if this decision makes all the difference? The power of love. It’s what we have. Come on, yeah. I love you.

Thomas: What about um…

Hope: The kids are gonna be gone for hours. I just want… I just want you.

Ridge: That ring is absolutely beautiful. Well done, son.

Thomas: Thanks, dad. I appreciate that. You know, honestly, I thought– when I told you I, uh, proposed to hope, you would… I don’t know, think I lost my sanity?

Ridge: You wanted something and you went after it. I love that. I love you. I love you. Look what I’m looking at. This. I love this. And so does hope. Or she wouldn’t be wearing your ring. Not even around her neck.

Thomas: I just wish that brooke felt the same way.

Brooke: You’ve been through a lot lately. And your marriage falling apart, that was very traumatic. And what you think you feel for thomas, that is just filling that empty hole in your heart.

Hope: So, are you saying that my feelings for thomas aren’t real?

Brooke: Honey, thomas isn’t the man for you. And if you accept his proposal, that would be the biggest mistake of your life.

Luna: Look, mom, I know you want me to let this go, but I can’T. So please, just be honest with me. Is bill spencer my father?

Poppy: I was honest with you, sweetheart. Bill is not your father.

Luna: Just like every other guy I’ve asked you about, huh?

Poppy: Okay, what does it matter, okay? I thought we were happy.

Luna: We were, mom. We are. I mean, I couldn’t have asked for a better childhood, but I have questions. You know, I could get answers on my own. I could get a test or something.

Poppy: No, luna, please. Please don’T. Just don’T.

Luna: Mom, what are you hiding from me?

Ridge: Let’s not worry about that right now, okay?

Thomas: Dad, brooke is never gonna forget my past. She hates that hope and i are together. She’s gonna hate that I proposed even more.

Ridge: All right, but she knows that you’ve been making strides, that you’re a better person now. Does she want you with her daughter? Absolutely not. I also don’t think she’s gonna stand in your way.

Brooke: Honey, please, just take that necklace off and give that ring back to thomas.

Hope: I– I really am at a loss for words, mom. I mean, I– I don’t know what else I can say to convince you that I genuinely care about thomas.

Brooke: I know that you think that he’s changed and maybe he has, but that doesn’t erase the past. Erase everything that he’s done to you and your family to hurt you. I know deep down, you know that. But it just breaks my heart, honey, that you believe this is what you deserve. But you don’T. You deserve so much more. This, this is just settling. I love you, hope. And I just want you to be happy. And I know you won’t be happy with thomas. You won’T. Please, honey, you can’t accept his proposal. You just can’T.

Poppy: Please don’t pursue this.

Luna: Why?

Poppy: Out of respect for your mother.

Luna: Why? Is my father that horrible or something? Is it– is it shameful or embarrassing? Mom, whatever it is, whatever you’re hiding, you can tell me. Come on, mom, is it like a deep, dark family secret or something?

Finn: Oh, hey, luna.

Luna: Hi.

Finn: Hey, sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. Aunt poppy? You know that feeling of having to re-wash dishes

Finn: Oh my gosh, aunt poppy. It is so good to see you.

Poppy: It’s good to see you too. It’s been too long.

Finn: Yeah, way too long. And I had heard you were in town. It’s– it’s been great having luna in la, and now it’s gonna be even better having both of you.

Poppy: To be honest, I wanted to reach out, but things have been a little crazy.

Finn: Oh, I’m sorry, did I– did I interrupt something?

Luna: No, no, not at all.

Finn: Well, you look amazing, as always. Beautiful and stylish.

Luna: Yeah, that’s my mom.

Finn: I think about all the time that we spent together all those years ago, and then one day, you were gone.

Luna: All the time that you spent together?

Finn: Yeah. When I started college, your mom stayed with us.

Charlie: Hey.

Thomas: Hey, charlie.

Charlie: Junior cheese.

Thomas: What?

Charlie: Oh, no, you’re right, you’re right. Rj would be junior to ridge’s big cheese, so that would make you, don’t tell me, it would…

Thomas: Charlie, can I help you with something?

Charlie: Oh, yeah, I just– just wanted your dad to know that the beautiful and breathtaking esther valentine has finished her fitting. I– I ran into her on the elevator.

Thomas: Bumped into her, huh?

Charlie: Yeah, yeah. Total– total coincidence.

Thomas: Yeah, it’s interesting because you are the head of security. Wouldn’t you be notified when a vip arrives?

Charlie: Well, I…

Thomas: Charlie, are you, um, do you have a crush on esther?

Charlie: Oh, what? You think that little– that little kitten has old charlie smitten? Well, I… oh, how about those dodgers, huh? Ohtani, mookie betts. Ooh, yeah.

Brooke: I’m sorry, charlie, but I’d really like to speak to thomas.

Charlie: Oh, of course. Okay, see you later. Cottage cheese, huh?

Thomas: No, no.

Charlie: I’ll keep working on it.

Thomas: Okay.

Charlie: Gouda. Breingen.

[ Brooke and thomas sigh ]

Thomas: What can I do for you?

Brooke: I was with hope, so I know what you did.

Thomas: What I did? What did I do?

Brooke: You proposed to her. What were you thinking, thomas?

Thomas: Hope, you’ve transformed me. Lit up my world. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m a one-woman man. You’re that woman for me. You, and only you, for the rest of my life.

[ Knocking on door ]

Hope: Ridge.

Ridge: Hey.

Hope: Uh, if you are looking for my mom, she has already left.

Ridge: I actually came down here to talk to you.

Hope: Okay, what’s– what’s up?

Ridge: Thomas told me about the proposal and you wearing this ring, not wearing it, it’s a little confusing.

Hope: Okay, well, if you are here to grill me as well, my mom already did a pretty good job of doing that, so.

Ridge: It’s not what I’m here for. I came here to remind you what a remarkable man my son is. But I guess you already know that.

When you smell the amazing

scent of gain flings…

Rj: I can’t stop kissing you. I think about you day and night.

Luna: We need to be alone together. Please get a place of your own soon.

>Luna: I never knew that you stayed with aunt li and uncle jack.

Poppy: I mean, for a bit.

Finn: My first year of college was really tough, and she kept an eye on me. My parents were both busy with their careers. I can’t tell you the amount of just pressure I felt. Having a dad as a lawyer and a mom as a doctor, I put a lot of stress on myself. But then, there was aunt poppy. This beautiful, free spirit, just lived life the way that she wanted to. She would literally close my computer while I was doing homework if I looked too stressed. We’d have, um, was it–

Poppy and finn: Spontaneous dance party.

Finn: Yeah. Yeah. We had a lot of good times.

Luna: Was I there too?

Finn: No, this was about a year before you were born.

[ Phone chimes ] Oh, this is the hospital. I need– I need to make this call.

Luna: Oh, just do it here.

Finn: You sure?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, we were about to leave anyway, so. But before we go, why did you need to see me?

Finn: Oh, I was with steffy and we just wanted to see if you and rj wanted to have dinner soon. But you know what? Why don’t we all do it together?

Poppy: Oh, no. I don’t think so.

Finn: Why? Oh, my mom. Yes. Look, I promise I am trying to get her to chill out about both of you, okay? But yeah, I need to make this. Is it okay?

Luna: Yeah. Of course.

Finn: Thank you so much.

Thomas: Brooke, I can imagine how you’re feeling, but I really don’t wanna argue with you.

Brooke: Okay, that’s not why I’m here. I’m just worried about you, thomas. Proposing to hope? Really? You wanna set yourself up for heartbreak?

Thomas: Look, yeah, I really wanna believe you’re looking out for me, but…

Brooke: I am looking out for you. You’re ridge’s son and I want the best for you.

Thomas: So, did hope tell you something, like she’s not gonna accept my proposal, or…

Brooke: No. She’s, uh, very conflicted. Whether she wants to admit it or not, I know she is not going to fully be able to commit herself to you or give you the life that you want.

Ridge: Don’t be mad at your mom. She’s just looking out for you. I lost faith in thomas too. And he’s worked very hard because he wants me to believe in him. And I do believe in him. But the more important thing for my son is that you believe in him. You know how much he loves you, right?

Hope: I do.

Ridge: And I hope that the feelings that you have for him are genuine, because if they’re not, it’s gonna crush him. And I gotta tell you, even wearing this ring around your neck, it makes him feel like there’s a chance. Makes me feel like there’s a chance.

Hope: So, what are you– what are you saying?

Ridge: You guys are good together. You’re– you’re great parents to douglas, you’re good collaborators, you’re– you’re great friends. But more than that, you found a way to forgive him. And that’s extraordinary. You– you’re a remarkable young woman, and I would be so happy if– if you were my daughter-in-law. If you’ve had sensitivity, those zingers can really cause

Luna: Feels good to be in your arms.

Rj: I feel the same way. That’s why I was texting you. You talk to your mom?

Luna: I did.

Rj: So, what’d she say?

Luna: That bill spencer is not my father.

Rj: Seriously? I’m– I’m so sorry. Are– are– are you okay?

Luna: She was upset that we were even having the conversation. Like, it terrifies her that I’m even curious about who my father is. I mean, she does exactly the same thing whenever I bring up a man from her past. First, she deflects, and then she says “nozawa power.” Mother and daughter, just the two of us.

Rj: She– she does understand that you, like, wanting to know who your father is, it doesn’t change how you feel about her, right?

Luna: And I actually told her that I could, um, look into a paternity test on my own.

Rj: Okay. Well, what’d she say to that?

Luna: Like, freaked out. She begged me not to do it.

Rj: Begged you? Why?

Luna: I have no idea. I mean, she always says that I was made from love, right? So, I don’t understand why she’s acting like the truth about my father is some, like, dark family secret.

Rj: Do– do you think she knows who your dad is?

Luna: She says she doesn’t, but I’m pretty sure she does.

Rj: I’m sorry, luna. What are you gonna do?

Luna: I don’t know why it upsets her so much, but I also– I– I don’t wanna hurt her, so. I guess I’ll just have to stop worrying about who my father is.

Finn: Uh, what about mrs. Allen? What were the results on her ct scan? Okay, okay.

Brooke: I love you, hope, and I just want you to be happy, and I know you won’t be happy with thomas. You won’T. Please, honey. You can’t accept his proposal. You just can’T.

Ridge: I don’t know. I’M… you guys are good together. You– you’re great parents to douglas. You’re good collaborators. You’re great friends. But more than that, you found a way to forgive him. And that’s extraordinary. You– you’re a remarkable young woman, and I would be so happy if– if you were my daughter-in-law.

Thomas: Hey, you.

Hope: Oh, hey to yourself. Uh, so, your dad was just here.

Thomas: Huh. That’s interesting. Your mom actually stopped in on me.

[ Clears throat ] So… guess the proposal’s not a secret anymore.

Hope: Well, I mean, realistically, we would’ve had to tell the parents eventually.

Thomas: And their reactions couldn’t be more different.

Hope: Hope my mom wasn’t too rough on you.

Thomas: Oh, no. I mean, it’s just the same old, same old. She thinks I can never make you happy and all that jazz. She’s also looking out for me, making sure that I’m not gonna be heartbroken and disappointed. What did my dad say?

Hope: Had a lot of nice things to say about you, and also said that he would be happy if I was his– if I were to be his daughter-in-law one day.

Thomas: Wow, really?

Hope: Mm-hmm. No, it was actually… it was really sweet that he took the time to come here and say that to me.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: So, um, about my mom.

Thomas: Hey, it doesn’t matter.

Hope: Thomas.

Thomas: Look, hey, no, no, honestly, this is…

[ Laughs ] It’s the status quo at this point. She doesn’t have faith in us. She doesn’t believe that we could have a fruitful relationship. That’s okay. And hey, look, I am not here to pressure you, okay? You can take as long as you need making all the decisions you want. I know that it’s well worth it. Because I know… this ring will be on your finger. I have faith.

Luna: Why aren’t you answering my question, mom?

Poppy: Sweetheart, where is this all coming from?

Luna: I told you, rj and i were talking about the timeline. Your past with bill spencer. The night that you guys spent together at the music festival a little over 20 years ago. And then I was born less than a year later. Is it him, mom? Is bill spencer my father?

Bill: Initial here. Here. Sign. Date. Congratulations. Welcome home.

Rj: Thank you, sir. Well, it’s official. Bill spencer’s my landlord.

[ Bill laughs ]

Bill: No wild parties. And don’t touch the décor.

Rj: Well, is that it? That’s the only two clauses?

Bill: Did you read anything you just signed?

Rj: I’m making a– I’m joking.

Bill: I know you are. Listen, I have faith in you. And I know that luna’s gonna be spending a lot of time here, so she’ll keep you on the straight and narrow.

Rj: I hope so.

Bill: Keep the place nice.

Rj: Yeah.

Bill: Yes.

Rj: I will. That’s sound advice. I will.

Bill: Yes, yes. From what I can tell, you are dating a remarkable young lady.

Thomas: You know, I’m gonna head over to the house later and see granddad.

Ridge: Good. He’ll appreciate the company.

Thomas: It’s good to see him getting stronger, you know.

Ridge: He is getting stronger. Still has a ways to go. He has a follow-up tomorrow, and we’ll see if he gets some news. I still haven’t heard yours yet.

Thomas: My news?

Ridge: You said there was something going on with you and hope.

Thomas: Oh, um… look, I love her, you know, and I– I don’t want anything to come between us.

Hope: Mom, I have to show you what beth made in art class today. Look what the teacher sent me.

Brooke: Oh! Oh, that’s beautiful. I love the colors.

Hope: They had to paint their emotions, and beth said that she feels warm, happy and sunny.

Brooke: That must make you feel good. Given everything that you’re going through since your divorce with liam.

Hope: If you are about to take a dig at thomas, please don’T.

Brooke: Did I mention thomas?

Hope: No, but I know how you are still worried about our involvement with each other.

Ridge: Is somebody causing problems for you and hope?

Thomas: No, I’m not gonna let that happen. And look, the challenges of the past, they won’t be an issue if I’m honest about them.

Ridge: That’s the right attitude.

Thomas: Yeah, and I do believe that hope still has faith in me.

Ridge: Is there a question about that?

Thomas: No, I mean, not necessarily. Not about my feelings for her. I’ve made those very clear. And I don’t think it’s necessarily her feelings for me. I… I may have done something.

Ridge: You may have done what?

Thomas: I…

[ Sighs ] Not may have. I– I did. I– I, um, I proposed to hope.

Hope: Mom, I really don’t want to have to keep defending my relationship with thomas to you every time we speak.

Brooke: Well, I would like to know how you feel about it. I mean, last time we spoke, you said that there could be a future between you and thomas. I mean, you have to be honest with yourself, hope. You really think you could do that? After everything that’s happened? After everything that he’s done? What you know about him? You really think that you could have a serious relationship with thomas?

Luna: Look, I know that this probably seems like it’s coming out of nowhere, but I– I need to know the truth. So please just answer me, mom. Is bill spencer my father?

Poppy: No, honey. Bill isn’t your father. I mean, it’s funny you would even think that.

Luna: It’s not funny to me. Every single time I would bring up a man from your past, that’s always your answer. You always say, “of course not. He can’t be your father. Okay, then who is my father, mom? I don’t know a single thing about him. Why? What are you keeping from me?


Ridge: So you proposed to hope, and she said maybe.

Thomas: She was a little too thrown to give me an answer.

Ridge: Oh, yeah, you said you caught her off guard.

Thomas: Right, I did, and… look, but we were talking about the future, right? And how I feel about her.

Ridge: But she didn’t think you were gonna propose to her.

Thomas: I wanted it to be a surprise.

Ridge: Okay. Thomas, you–

Thomas: Dad, look, hope needs a little more time, and that’s fine. I’m willing to wait. I love her so much. And one day, she’s going to take that ring off her necklace and put it on her finger, and it’s gonna make me the happiest man in the world.

Brooke: Honey, you’ve been so quiet recently. What is going on? Just talk to me.

Hope: If I do, can you promise not to turn it into a lecture?

[ Brooke huffs ]

Brooke: Just tell me the truth.

Hope: About if I see myself with thomas?

Brooke: Yeah. Can you see yourself with thomas in a serious relationship? Not this situation that you have going on now.

Hope: Mom, he loves me. He is committed to me.

Brooke: Okay, but how do you feel about him? If you don’t feel the same way, you’re just leading him on, and that’s not fair to thomas. And it could be dangerous.

Hope: Oh, mom, stop. He is not that man anymore. He loves me. It is real. It is beautiful. It’s not some delusion. And the only reason I thought that maybe I’m not ready to get married yet is–

Brooke: Married? Did he propose?

Hope: He did.

Brooke: Oh, my god, hope. What did you say? Well, you’re not wearing his ring.

[ Sighs ] I’m just glad you said no.

Bill: I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that there is something special about the nozawa women.

Rj: No, no, I agree with you 100%.

Bill: I mean, they make you sit up and take notice. I mean, there– there could be a– a crowd of people and all you see is her.

Rj: That’s– that’s exactly how I feel about luna. You really only talked to poppy and met her that one time?

Bill: Sometimes that’s all it takes.

Rj: Very true. I mean, but you two must have made like a really powerful connection. I mean, it must be crazy seeing her now. Is it?

Bill: I could hardly believe it.

Rj: But you– you recognized poppy right away. After– after one– one night, just like a few hours together?

Bill: That evening we spent together is one that I will never forget.

Poppy: Luna, sweetheart. I thought you were happy. Things were going so well. This hasn’t come up in so long.

Luna: Yeah, well, rj and I were discussing your history with bill and how you met and that– that one magical night that you two shared together. Did you hook up with him, mom? Were– were you two intimate?

Poppy: Luna, I’ve always been open with you and I never wanted you to be embarrassed about these things, but I don’t like being interrogated. I would never do that to you.

Luna: Okay. I’ll take that as a yes. The timeline matches up. And bill could be my father. Are you lying to me, mom? With the freestyle libre 3 system…

Rj: I just– I just think it’s interesting. You know there’s– it’s like there’s something pulling you and poppy back together again.

Bill: Yeah, well, it’s about time my luck finally turned around.

Rj: Yeah, it might be good luck for all three of you. Well, you know, because, um… luna and her mom are really close, and they’ve been on their own for a really long time. You know, luna seeing her mom happy, it– it means a lot to her.

Bill: Well, my boys feel the same way. And I want poppy to get to know them.

Rj: Yeah, luna too. I think she’d fit right in.

Bill: I’m sure they could learn a lot from each other. But before we start introducing families, poppy and I have some more catching up to do.

Rj: Yeah, no, you two should definitely do that. And, uh, who knows? Poppy being back might give your life an unexpected gift.

Luna: See, this is why I never ask about my father. It makes you so uncomfortable.

Poppy: I’m not lying to you, baby.

Luna: Well, you’re not being completely honest with me either.

Poppy: Well, I’m telling you the truth. The same thing I say every time you bring this up. I am your mother. I’m an independent woman, and I am your only parent. I try to be everything that you need. And, yeah, there were times that we struggled.

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: But you were always safe and secure and loved beyond measure. You’re the reason for every decision that I’ve made ever since I learned… that I was pregnant with you. And I love you with all of my being. Please… please tell me that’s enough.

Ridge: So hope hasn’t told anyone that you proposed?

Thomas: No, we kind of decided to keep it to ourselves for now. Well, we did. Obviously, I told you, and I’m kind of hoping you might not tell brooke.

Ridge: Yeah, listen, son… I’m proud of you. You’ve made good, healthy choices and I see you standing right here. I see who you are. You put yourself out there, but now this is up to hope. Don’t pressure her.

Thomas: No, of course not. I won’T. Look, she’s got me. Always. And I gotta say, I– I really love the fact that you, time after time, you show me this– you have like faith in me, and you give me this unwavering support and it…

[ Sighs ] …It means the world.

Ridge: You’re my boy. You have one of your own, so you know what that feels like.

Thomas: Yeah.

Ridge: Fathers and sons.

Thomas: Same is true for mothers and daughters.

Brooke: Oh, honey, you are such a good person. And I know you care about thomas, but he should have realized you’re not ready to make a decision like that. I mean, a marriage proposal out of nowhere?

Hope: Okay, I– I will admit I was a little surprised.

Brooke: You are still trying to process the end of your marriage with liam.

Hope: Okay, yes, I am.

Brooke: Your whole world was turned upside down.

Hope: And thomas helped me back.

Brooke: Helped? I thought your involvement with him was just sort of a reaction to…

Hope: A reaction?

Brooke: Okay, look, it’s been a very confusing time. But, honey, you did the right thing. And if thomas loves you as much as he says he does, he’ll understand. But you can’t go through with this. You can’t accept his proposal. Not after everything that he’s done.

Hope: Well, if it makes you feel better, I– I didn’t say yes. But I didn’t exactly say no either. At dot’s an ordinary pretzel just isn’t enough.

Poppy: I know I couldn’t give you the kind of life that rj had growing up. Okay? It wasn’t easy. We didn’t have luxuries, but we had each other.

Luna: I love the life that we share together.

Poppy: I tried to provide for you.

Luna: I know that, I know. I mean, you devoted your entire life to me.

Poppy being your mom is the best and most rewarding thing I’ve ever done in my life. All of my pride, all of my joy, it’s right here.

Luna: I got all of my values and my ambition and confidence from you. Look, this is not the reason why I’m asking about my father okay? I’m not trying to look for something better. I love the life that we have, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s just sometimes, when I look in the mirror, there’s so many, like, question marks above my head. Like there’s so many parts of me that I don’t know about myself.

Poppy: But I don’t want you to feel that way.

Luna: Okay, but you have to understand.

Poppy: Yes, I do, but… you know what? You don’t have to. Look at me. We’re nozawa women. What have we got, huh? We’ve got nozawa. Just me and you. The sisterhood, right? Come on, huh? Do it.

Luna: Nozawa power.

Poppy: You’re my entire world.

Luna: Love you, mom.

Ridge: Let’s not worry about brooke right now. You and hope, you’ve been there for each other like no one else has.

Thomas: Thanks, dad.

Ridge: You made your intentions clear. You proposed to her, and if hope had any concerns, she would have said no.

Thomas: Right, but she didn’t say no.

Ridge: She didn’T. So all you can do now is be honest and tell her the truth.

Thomas: And just wait for hope’s response.

Ridge: Yeah. Here’s the good news. She’s got the ring. If this is supposed to happen, love will find a way. Come here.

Thomas: Hey.

Brooke: Why are you wearing thomas’s ring on your necklace?

Hope: Well, he gave it to me.

Brooke: But when you propose, you give a person a ring if they accept, and you didn’t accept.

Hope: No, I– I couldn’T.

Brooke: No, of course you couldn’T. You may have forgiven thomas, but how could you possibly forget everything that he has done?

Hope: That is not the reason why, mom. I needed more time. And while I am doing that, I am going to keep this ring close to my heart.

Brooke: And whose idea was that? Look, I– I’m sorry, but I don’t find this funny or cute or romantic or any of that. To me, this reminds me of thomas’s old behavior.

Hope: Oh my gosh, mom. Are you kidding? It’s like no matter what he does, you find fault with it. It’s like you cannot let it go. Mom, the reason I asked for more time is because I need to figure some things out for myself. Yes, I am still dealing with the end of my marriage, but I also need to make sure that the kids are okay. That they are happy, that they are healthy, that they are stable before I go making any more giant, life-changing decisions. And, oh, by the way, don’t you want me to be happy?

Brooke: Oh, my god, hope! Yes, of course I want you to be happy. The way you were when you were with liam.

Hope: Oh, my gosh, mom! Liam left me! Thomas never has. He has been consistent. He has been supportive. And it’s like you just– you refuse to accept that– that he has changed. Mom, he has become a positive force in my life, both professionally and personally. What?

Brooke: So you’re saying that there’s a possibility of a future between you and thomas? Honey… please, I am begging you. Don’t accept his proposal. Please. You cannot become thomas’ wife.

Luna: You can’t be serious.

RJ: I– I mean, well, it’s possible. Come on, the magical night that the two of them spent together, the fact that Bill and Poppy are quite fond of each other? I mean, I don’t– I don’t think it’s a stretch to think they hooked up.

Luna: Okay, that much I’ll buy. But the other thing? What you’re suggesting is– is– is crazy.

RJ: Well, it might be. I don’t know. It might not. Come on, what if Bill Spencer is your father?

Bill: Well, thanks for drawing these up, Diana, and for personally bringing them by. Standard lease agreement. Pretty boilerplate, right?

Diana: You’re welcome. You want to add or take out something specific?

Bill: Nope, it’s good.

Diana: I’m surprised. I thought you might keep it for yourself. Can’t beat the location. A romantic setting, impressing the ladies.

Bill: Yeah, but, um… there’s only one lady that I’m interested in impressing.

Poppy: I didn’t realize I had that effect on you.

Bill: From the day I first laid eyes on you.

Poppy: It seems like a lifetime ago.

Bill: Well, in some ways it is. But like I told you, from the day you walked in this restaurant, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you. I haven’t forgotten, Poppy.

Poppy: I haven’t forgotten either.

Bill: I can’t stop thinking about you. And– and I feel like there are forces at work that– that brought us back into each other’s lives for a reason.

Poppy: Well, I don’t know about forces, but things definitely happen for a reason.

Bill: I wanna spend more tie with you. I wanna get to know you better. I wanna get to know your daughter better. I want you to meet my son. I mean, Liam is really excited to meet you, and… Well, he just kept reiterating that… we’ve been brought back togethr for a reason.

Poppy: I think he may be right.

Bill: Thank you. Take care.

Luna: I can’t believe the thought of Bill Spencer being my father is crossing your mind.

RJ: Well, obviously, I don’t know. But, Luna, think about it. Your mom and Bill, they haven’t forgot each other after years. And, you know, the connection that they share is obvious. I mean, everyone can see the connection that they share. And they both talk about the night that they spent together as really special to both of them. And plus, there’s the math. You know, the math checks out with how old you are and when the two of you met. I just– I don’t think it’s that big of a stretch.

Ginge: Sorry to interrupt.

RJ: Hey, Ginge. Uh, I’m like right in the middle of something.

Ginge: Bill Spencer.

Luna: What?

Ginge: Bill Spencer. I’m covering phones. He’s calling for you, RJ.

RJ: Thank you, Ginge. Appreciate it, man. He’s probably just calling to talk to me about the beach house or something like that. Hey, Bill. Uh, sorry to keep you waiting.

Bill: Not a problem. I didn’t have your cell, so I called the main number. Hope I’m not pulling you away from anything too important.

RJ: No, no, no. I… Actually, we were, uh… we were just talking about you.

Bill: Oh, well, that could be trouble.

RJ: Yeah, yeah. Just, you know, uh, about the beach house, how excited I am to move in. Well, you’re a lucky man and this happens to be your lucky day. I know that Wyatt already gave you the keys, but if you can drop by over here, we can get the lease signed off and you can officially move in.

RJ: Okay. I’ll be right over. Thank you. That was, uh, about going over and officially signing the lease. Yay. And, you know, maybe while I’m there, I’ll suss out Bill about your mom and what he and her shared all those years ago. Hey, listen. I’m not trying to push you or anything, all right? I’m just letting you know what I was thinking. Bill and Poppy share a history and I don’t know, the timeline adds up with how old you are and when they met. Maybe it’s time.

Luna: Time?

RJ: Time for you to ask your mom if Bill Spencer is your dad.

RJ: I’m just saying is that this timeline adds up. Your mom and Bill met over years ago at the Golden Gate Music Festival. They instantly have this huge connection. They spend this magical night together, and for whatever reason, something happened and they went their separate ways.

Luna: Well, probably would’ve been different if they lived in the same city.

RJ: Yeah. Yeah, I’m willing to bet it would’ve been. Would’ve been different for all of you, especially you.

Luna: If Bill is my father, you mean.

RJ: It’s just, Luna, there’s this– there’s this wistfulness when you talk to me about your father and… I just think that this is your opportunity to change that. Look, I– I– I have to go. I have to go meet Bill to sign this lease. Um, but just think about it. And, you know, your mom, she has the answer. And I– I really do, I think that you should ask her for the truth. And I love you. And, um, I’m just doing all this because I just I wanna help you find the answers to the questions that have plagued you.

Luna: Bill Spencer doesn’t seem like a craft fair type.

Poppy: All right, fine. It was at a music festival, but decades ago.

RJ: I don’t think it’s a stretch to think they hooked u. Come on, what if– what if Bill Spencer is your father? Luna, think about it. Your mom and Bill, they haven’t forgot each other after years. Maybe it’s time.

Luna: Time? Time for you to ask your mom… if Bill Spencer is your dad.

Luna: Hi. Um, are you busy?

Poppy: No, I’m good. What’s up?

Luna: I, um, I’d– I’d really like to see you.

Poppy: Wow, I’m popular today.

Luna: What?

Poppy: Nothing. Private joke.

Luna: Um, do you think you could– you could come over to Forrester?

Poppy: Is something wrong?

Luna: I don’t know. Maybe something’s right. Um, but only you can tell.

Poppy: I’ll be right there.

RJ: Wow. I gotta be honest with you, Bill, I still can’t believe I’m actually going to live here.

Bill: Ridge and Brooke okay with you moving out?

RJ: Yeah. Well… my dad’s not exactly excited that of all people I could be renting from, I’m renting from you. But I talked to him. I told him, you know, this is my life. It’s my money. So, you know, eventually, he– he saw things my way.

Bill: Good. I did consider keeping the place. I mean, even my– my realtor pointed out that, you know, this is tough to beat if you’re looking for a romantic setting.

RJ: Hm.

Bill: So, I’m sure that you and Luna are going to enjoy it.

RJ: Yeah. Uh, also speaking of, uh, I’m sorry about the whole embarrassing encounter the other day with you and Poppy and Luna and me.

Bill: Oh, no, no, no. That was nothing. I mean, it had the potential to be awkward, but it was no big deal.

RJ: Yeah. So, um… you– you and Poppy, you two are seeing each other?

Bill: I’m working on it.

RJ: Well, it must be wild, you know, to rediscover each other after so many years, right?

Bill: I see you know a bit about our history.

RJ: I mean, I just– I just heard about the basics. You met at a music festival, Bay Area, right?

Bill: Yeah. Uh… Uh, Poppy was– was dancing, and she just stopped me cold in my tracks. I mean, she made quite a– a first impression.

RJ: Huh.

Bill: I had to know her.

RJ: Well, what’s it been, Bill, like years, right?

Bill: A bit more.

RJ: Huh. Well, then, you must have made quite an impression on her for her to remember you after that much time, right?

Bill: Well, all I’ll say is that it was a very special night. And what about you and Luna? You seemed very close when I saw you here.

RJ: I– I’m crazy about her.

Bill: I think that Luna’s heart is in good hands.

RJ: And what about Poppy’s?

Bill: I want the very best for her. And, yes, that includes a relationship with me. You know, I’m– I’m… not one to really believe in things being fated, but… in this case, I do think that Poppy and I were– were drawn together for a reason. Both then and now.

Poppy: Hey, I got here as fast as I could.

Luna: Oh, um, you didn’t– you didn’t have to rush.

Poppy: Yeah, but you sounded really intense on the phone, like something was going on. My mind was just racing on the way over here. Was it your Aunt Li again? Did something happen between you and RJ?

Luna: No, no, he– he couldn’t be more wonderful or more supportive.

Poppy: I’m so happy you guys found each other.

Luna: Yeah, me too.

Poppy: Well, you know, it wouldn’t have happened if you weren’t courageous enough to follow your dream. I’m so proud of you. It isn’t easy to leave a life that you know and venture out into the world. But you did it. And you made it work. You’re an inspiration.

Luna: I mean, any courage that I have, I got from you. You’ve– you’ve never been afraid to live life on your own terms and be exactly who you are. Whether that person conformed to societal norms or not.

Poppy: Usually not. unapologetic self-acceptance that prompted you to dance at that music festival where you met Bill. It’s what made you so strong and brave enough to have me and embrace your role as a single mother.

Poppy: Well, you and I didn’t need anybody else but each other, hm?

Luna: Well, each other is kind of the only option we had. Um… RJ’s got me thinking about something.

Poppy: Okay.

Luna: It’s about my father.

RJ: It’s a nice thought that, you know, Poppy’s in your life for a reason. Any idea, um, why she’s been in your life now, not once but twice?

Bill: That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

RJ: You don’t know?

Bill: Does anyone really know? I– I mean, I have a few thoughts about it.

RJ: Yeah? Yeah, it’s been fun getting to know Poppy ’cause she’s– she’s interesting, right?

Bill: To say the least.

Poppy: Yeah, she’s a really cool mom.

Bill: I told Poppy that of course I want to get to know her better, but that I want to get to know Luna better as well. As I said, she strikes me as a remarkable young woman.

RJ: Yeah. Well, you’re right. She– she is absolutely remarkable. And, uh, the thing with Luna is the more you get to know her, the more, uh, impressed you become with her.

Poppy: You asked me here to talk about your father?

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: Why? What about him?

Luna: Well, you know, whenever I bring him up, you either shut down or change the subject.

Poppy: You’re curious about your father?

Luna: RJ and I have been talking.

Poppy: You discussed this with RJ?

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: Okay, well, I mean, I guess I’m not surprised. You guys are getting closer all the time. It makes sense that you would open up to him.

Luna: Well, he’s just– He’s been trying to help me sort out all these things that I’m feeling and all these things that I’m thinking. And I just want to be clear that he did not push me into this at all.

Poppy: Push you into what?

Luna: Trying to figure out who my father is. But– but then he started asking questions and started putting the pieces together.

Poppy: Pieces? What kind of pieces?

Luna: When Bill approached us at Il Giardino, he was positive that you two knew each other. And I don’t know what your reaction was about. I don’t know if– if you really didn’t remember him at the time or if you didn’t want to deal with it in that moment, but he remembered you. And he even brought up San Francisco, and he was right. You guys figured out that you two met at the music festival at Golden Gate Park. I mean, isn’t that amazing? You guys spent one night together like– like something years ago, and you guys still remember each other? But that just makes me think the connection you two shared might have been, like, crazy intense, right? And so RJ did the math and… the time that you and Bill met and the age that I am.

Poppy: Luna, what are you saying?

Luna: Look… I really don’t want you to take offense to this, okay? I love you so much, Mom. And I love our bond, and I would– I would not change that for the entire world. I mean, I’m in awe of you. You raised me all by yourself and you somehow made a way to make every single day so much fun. But there’s a piece of my story that’s missing. So, I need to know the truth, so please just… be honest with me. Is it Bill? Is Bill Spencer my father?

[Relaxing music]

Liam: Um, so when do I get to meet this Poppy? Because with the way we’re going, like how you’re talking about her, I feel like I’m in future step-mom territory.

Bill: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, okay, all right. Whoa, now, slow down. I told you we’re not rushing to the altar. I mean, we’ve only had a couple of dates. Uh, but yes, I– I– I want you to meet her.

Liam: Oh, look at you.

Bill: What?

Liam: You’re just– The way– You’re just– You’re smiling like a dope, I swear. I’m just like, “This is my dad now.”

Bill: Yeah, okay. Yes, she makes me, uh, smile. Well, now, now I gotta meet her. Well, you’re– you– you will. I mean, I certainly hope you will. I don’t know why you wouldn’t. I wanna to get closer to Poppy, you know. Hell, I– I wanna learn everything there is to learn about each other’s families.

RJ: You’re worried, aren’t you?

Luna: Yeah. I’m second-guessing leaving my mom alone with Aunt Li. I mean, she can be so cruel.

RJ: I mean, your mom can stand up for herself.

Luna: Well, she shouldn’t have to. I mean, this is none of her business, but Aunt Li always finds a way to bully herself into other people’s lives.

RJ: Yeah, like telling you you couldn’t intern here.

Luna: Yes, exactly. And what, now she’s harassing my mom about who she can and can’t date? I mean, my mom doesn’t need her sister’s permission, and she certainly doesn’t have to justify or explain her past with Bill Spencer.

Li: You should be ashamed.

Poppy: Ashamed? Seriously? Because Luna doesn’t know her father? Hey, I did just fine raising her on my own.

Li: No, no, ashamed for all the men you’ve chased. Okay, the one-night stands, the countless guys you’ve duped into sleeping with you.

Poppy: Oh, wait, no, I see. Ashamed of having blood pulsing through my veins, of wanting human connection or sharing intimacy or passion?

Li: Say all the words, pretty words you want to describe your immoral behavior, but Penelope, it doesn’t change who you are or what you’re doing.

Poppy: Okay, well, I don’t know what’s so immoral about two consenting adults finding pleasure in–

Li: Two consenting strangers who will never see each other again. This is not how we were raised, Penelope.

Poppy: Well, you make it sound like I have a different man in my bed every night, which couldn’t be further from the truth. And some, I do see again, by the way. Bill Spencer, for example.

Li: Oh, God, no, I still can’t believe you slept with him back in the day. Of course I can. He’s got the one quality you love the most. Money.

Poppy: Oh, come on.

Li: Nothing will come out of this, Penelope. You hear me? Nothing.

Liam: So, uh, does Poppy have, like, a big family? I mean, I know you mentioned the daughter who’s– who’s interning at Forrester Creations. How is– uh, how’s she doing over there?

Bill: What I understand, she’s blowing everybody away. Listen, I’m telling you, Luna is a very impressive young woman.

RJ: Still think it’s pretty wild hearing you say that.

Luna: Say what?

RJL Just that your mom has a past. With Bill Spencer.

Luna: Well, what’s even more wild is that they found each other again, after all these years have gone by.

RJ: Yeah. What’s it been? It’s been, like, years?

Luna: Yeah. Yeah, I mean, it goes way back, like, before I was even born.

Li: You and Bill Spencer may have had your wild night of passion decades ago, but it’s ancient history.

Poppy: Oh, I don’t know. The way he’s talking to me… Guy’s into me, Li.

Li: He’s Kelly’s grandfather.

Poppy: Oh, I see. Think I’m too young to be dating a grandfather?

Li: No, Penelope, I’m saying he’s off-limits. Besides, he’s way out of your league. Don’t get your hopes up. Nothing good could ever come out of this relationship with Bill Spencer.

Poppy: Nothing good will come of Bill and me?

Li: What’s the matter? Did I offend you?

Poppy: You wanna know something?

Li: What?

Poppy: I wish you’d be a little less judgmental.

Li: And I wish you would give me less to be judgmental about. Honestly, being your sister has been exhausting. Always has been.

Poppy: Oh, because growing up in your shadow wasn’t a daily thrill?

Li: Excuse me?

Poppy: Yeah, okay. You have been critical to me ever since I was a little kid and getting angry at me over the silliest thing.

Li: Penelope, it was never about anger! It was always about what I wanted the best for you. I wish you’d take life more seriously. Your studies, have a goal or two. But all you cared about was boys and concerts and partying.

Poppy: I like to have fun. That doesn’t mean I don’t have goals.

Li: No, gold-digging doesn’t count. Listen, I don’t care that you and Bill shared a torrid night of passion years ago. It’s not happening again. I won’t allow you to sleep your way into Kelly’s grandfather’s life.

Li: I gotta say, it’s just so cool, you and Poppy reconnecting after all this time.

Bill: It’s very cool. And random. And what are the chances that we’d be in the exact same restaurant at the exact same time?

Liam: Well, I mean, the chances aren’t that low, right? It’s Il Giardino. You go all the time. It’s right down the street from Forrester. Poppy’s daughter works at Forrester. I’m messing with you. It’s totally a fluke and it’s amazing that it happened, and I’m really happy for you.

Bill: Thank you, son. Wow, I mean for somebody who’s not about fate and all that nonsense…

Liam: I know. It’s like–

Bill: Poppy comes back into my world -plus years later.

Liam: Like, this woman just, like, blasts from the past and then all of a sudden, she’s right in front of you again.

Bill: All right. Don’t try to put me in some kind of rom-com.

Liam: I love it. I love it. You deserve your own rom-com, Dad. It’s– Come on. Listen, this, um… This is not an accident that this woman and you have reconnected now.

RJ: You were there, right? When your mom and Bill reconnected?

Luna: Yeah, at Il Giardino. He just approached our table.

Bill: He said he, uh… He recognized your mom, but he couldn’t quite place her or something like that?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, understandably. It had been so long. I mean, at first, it seemed like my mom didn’t even know what he was talking about.

RJ: But then… She like suddenly was like, “Oh, it all came back to me,” something like that?

Luna: I mean, I guess so. I’m not quite sure. I mean, my mom didn’t really wanna talk about it. Why? What were you thinking? Tell me what’s going on in that handsome head of yours.

RJ: I don’t know. I just… I just find it interesting. You know, that two people recognized each other after that amount of time, and, I don’t know, they only saw each other for one night at– at a music festival that was, you know, probably pretty dark and loud, and, let’s face it, you know, one or maybe two of them might have been slightly inebriated. I mean, it’s just, I don’t know. Who’d remember somebody after that amount of time? It just makes you wonder if there was something more maybe going on.

Luna: More going on? What– what are you…

RJ: Well, maybe something happened between the two of them all those years ago.

Poppy: Li, please know that I’m saying this with the utmost love and respect for you. Butt out.

Li: This is my life you’re messing with.

Poppy: No, it’s my life, and I will date who I want, I will sleep with who I want.

Li: Not when it affects my son’s family. It’s bad enough that Luna’s working at Forrester Creations and dating Steffy’s brother. Oh, what’s the matter, Penelope? Did you get jealous? Felt like you wanted to show her up? Yeah? By finding an even richer man for yourself?

Poppy: All right, that is a horrible thing to say.

Li: Horribly true. Like mother, like daughter. That girl turned out just like you, didn’t she? Making moves on poor, unsuspecting RJ.

Poppy: Well, like you said, Bill isn’t poor, and nor is he unsuspecting.

Li: I’m not letting you worm your way into Finn and Steffy’s life any further. I shudder to think of the damage you’d cause if, God forbid, Bill started bringing you around.

Poppy: Imagine. We could be step-grandmothers together. Although I don’t think I’d go by “Grandma.” I’ll choose something a little more youthful. “Nana,” maybe? “Lola”?

Li: Save it for when Luna has a child. You’re not going near Kelly or Hayes. You may have a past with Bill, but it’s over. Cut your ties. There’s absolutely no reason why you should see or speak to him again.

Bill: I am so glad that Poppy has come back into my world. And, yeah, Liam, I guess sometimes life does just happen. Well, I’m glad it’s happening to you, because you deserve it.

Bill: Thank you. And Poppy seems to have a really good one, too.

Liam: A good one what?

Bill: A good life.

Liam: Oh.

Bill: I mean, she seems very relaxed and happy, and she’s got this wonderful daughter. Uh, I don’t think they always had it easy, though. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, I know from my own experience, not growing up with much can really make you driven to succeed.

Liam: And is that something you recognize in Poppy’s daughter? Yeah, she’s very smart, and, well, I’d say she’s tenacious.

Liam: What’s the, um– What’s the deal with the dad? Is he in the picture?

Bill: Never was. Luna doesn’t even know who her father is.

Luna: RJ, what are you getting at?

RJ: Well, I’m just saying that, you know, I have a hard time remembering people that I met, like, two weeks ago, let alone two decades ago. And, you know, your mom’s very pretty. I’m sure she made a very big impression on Bill. So, maybe there was more than, you know, just dancing going on that night?

Luna: You think my mom and Bill Spencer… I knew that they had history years ago, but RJ, you think my mom and Bill Spencer hooked up together?

Poppy: Thank you. Hello?

Bill: Poppy, it’s– it’s Bill.

Poppy: How are you?

Bill: Um, I’m– I’m great. I was just– I was just thinking about you and talking about you as well.

Poppy: Oh, really?

Bill: To my son, Liam.

Poppy: Does he have a beach house you wanna show me too?

Bill: Well, he actually did at one time, but, you know, that’s another story. I still cannot believe that Luna and RJ almost walked in on us the other night. That was a close call.

Poppy: Don’t remind me. Regardless, I had an amazing time with you. I would like to do it again. And I hope you feel the same way. Something wrong?

Poppy: Not with you. I thoroughly enjoyed our night together. It’s, um… It’s my sister. She’s so judgmental. She called me a gold-digger.

Bill: Well, it actually is funny, because I’m the one pursuing you. It’s not the other way around. When I was talking to my son about you, he got me thinking.

Poppy: About?

Bill: I can’t stop thinking about you. And– and I feel like there are forces at work that– that brought us back into each other’s lives for a reason.

Poppy: Well, I don’t know about forces, but things definitely happen for a reason.

Bill: Yes, exactly. We’ve been given an incredible opportunity. And I hope you won’t let your sister’s rudeness compromise that. I wanna spend more time with you. I wanna get to know you better. I wanna get to know your daughter better. I want you to meet my sons. I mean, Liam is really excited to meet you. Well, he just kept reiterating that we’ve been brought back together for a reason.

Poppy: I think he may be right.

Luna: Oh, that kind of freaks me out, thinking about my mom and Bill Spencer, like… At a concert?

RJ: I’m sorry, I don’t mean to paint that picture inside of your head.

Luna: Well, you did, Michelangelo, and now I can’t get it out of my head. I mean, I don’t think that’s what… There’s no actual way that… Why did you bring this up?

RJ: Well, because, you know, you told me that you don’t know who your father is, and…

Luna: I haven’t needed a father. I just always appreciated my mom raising me.

RJ: No, I know. I totally– I get that, you know? The relationship that you two have is great. It’s you two against the world.

Luna: Yeah. For as long as I can remember.

RJ: But, you know, all that time, it could have been the three of you.

Luna: I mean, it’s not that big of a deal. You know, I never felt bad about myself or felt like I was missing out on anything. If anything, I felt bad for my mom. You know, I often thought about how different her life would be if my dad was in the picture and contributing. I don’t know. Every time I brought him up, she would get, like, super distant and shut down.

RJ: So your mom’s never told you any information about your dad?

Luna: Nope. Just that I was made from love.

RJ: Well, if that’s true, you know, whoever your dad is, it’s got to be someone who’s really special to your mom. It’s got to be someone who made a really big impact on her.

Luna: Yeah. I hope so. I mean, that’s how I found comfort over the years. If you do the math with when Bill and your mom met at this music festival — like, over years ago, and– and the fact that they don’t– you know, they haven’t forgotten each other, you know, it just got me thinking– Look, I don’t wanna sound crazy, okay, I don’t want you to wig out, but with how old you are and how long ago they both met at that music festival, when they were connecting there…

Luna: Oh, my God. Are you saying what I think you’re saying?

RJ: What if it’s true, Luna? What if Bill Spencer is your father?

Eric: That’s enough now.

Donna: Oh, stop. Here’s your napkin.

Katie: And here’s the paper. I got the business section. The funnies are right behind that ’cause I know that laughter is the best medicine.

Eric: Laughter? I thought that was a good stiff martini.

Donna: Oh, boy. Well, I got you some pineapple juice instead. Something you’ve been craving since the hospital.

Eric: Thank you. Yeah. It’s good. Thank you.

Donna: You’re welcome. Although I can’t wait for happy hour.

Katie: Oh… Man, he never stops.

Donna: No, he doesn’t. But that’s also why he’s with us today. You never stopped fighting, did you? Despite all the odds. It’s because I had all that help of yours. Thank you. The two of you by my side. Thank you. You never gave up on me. You are my rock.

Ridge: No doubt about it.

Katie: Oh?

Ridge: Dad’s back better than ever in Donna’s arms.

Liam: Wow. So, Wyatt actually did it, huh? He moved out.

Bill: He told you he was thinking about it, right?

Liam: Thinking about it. He said he was thinking about it and we talked about that, but that’s one thing. I didn’t think he’d actually go through with it.

Bill: Well, he– he did. He rented out my place.

Liam: I mean, is… is he gonna stick around L.A. or is he just like headed off to parts unknown?

Bill: I don’t know. I don’t even think he knows. I mean, my preference is that he stays put.

Liam: Well, mine is too ’cause I would– I would miss the hell out of him, but I… And I guess, hey, sometimes you need a new adventure. Not unlike yourself.

Bill: Me?

Liam: Yeah, you. What, is this– is this new woman in your life not a new adventure?

Luna: I still can’t believe it.

RJ: Me either.

Luna: I mean, we’re at your new beach house, we think that we’re finally alone, so we’re kissing.

RJ: And then you hear something outside and you look out and who do you see? Your mother.

Luna: My mother. I mean, how crazy is that?

RJ: You think she was spying on us?

Luna: No. My mom would never.

RJ: Yeah, you’re right. It’s not Poppy’s style.

Luna: But she was acting a little bit weird.

RJ: Yeah, she was acting a little weird. Maybe it was because she ran into her daughter and her boyfriend making out.

Luna: No way. No, no. My mom’s not a prude like that.

RJ: Oh, yeah? Well, what if I started kissing you right now and she happened to walk in?

Luna: It’s not gonna happen. Kiss away.

RJ: All right.

Poppy: Oh, sorry. I can come back.

Luna: No, Mom. No. You are not going anywhere until I find out exactly what you and Bill were doing at the beach house.

Ridge: It’s an incredible feeling walking through this door knowing you’re gonna be here where you belong.

Brooke: So, how’s he doing?

Katie: Well, between you and me, Eric’s being a bit of a pill.

Ridge: What?

Eric: Yeah, well, this one is insisting that I have pineapple juice and trying to keep me away from the martinis.

Ridge: Okay. Your health comes first.

Eric: Not you too. Look, in spite of the restrictions, I’m very happy to be home With my beautiful Donna.

Bill: Butting into my love life, are you?

Liam: Did you just call it a love life? So it’s a love life now? Explain. Okay, unpack that for me. What does that mean?

Bill: Uh, well, among other things, Poppy and I had our second date yesterday. And wound up here, in fact. Liam: Oh, why’d you bring her here?

Bill: Hello?

Liam: Oh, well, oh, yeah, no. Okay. All right. Sure. Yeah. Uh, how, uh… How did it go?

Bill: Uh, well, it actually got cut short. Through no fault of mine or Poppy’s.

Liam: Dad, I don’t know what that means.

Bill: You’re not supposed to.

Liam: Wow. Okay. Okay. Uh… Are you, um… Are you gonna see her again? ‘Cause you seem a bit fascinated with the lady.

Bill: Uh, I am fascinated. And when you meet her, you’ll understand why.

Poppy: Bill wanted to show me the beach house, and we didn’t realize that RJ had already rented from Bill’s son.

RJ: Yeah. I gotta admit though, it was– it was kind of funny, you know. Us surprising you, you and Bill surprising us.

Luna: Well, you know, what’s surprising, not to mention amazing, is that out of all of the men in Los Angeles, my mom is seeing Bill Spencer.

Li: What? You and Bill Spencer?

Liam: I mean, I gotta say that the timing is pretty remarkable, right? years since you had this, uh, this night together, and not only do you remember it this vividly, but Poppy’s now reappeared in your life. I just, I’m just saying it sounds like fate to me or kismet or whatever.

Bill: Yeah, look, I’m not one to really give much to fate and kismet, but I do have to admit it does feel like something… otherworldly has drawn Poppy and me back together.

Liam: Well, listen, just wait, ’cause time will tell if there’s a reason you two found each other again.

Li: I want answers, Penelope. I heard you speaking to a man on the phone the other day. You called him Bill. You’re actually seeing Bill Spencer.

RJ: Li, if you want to talk to Steffy, she’s in a meeting right now.

Li: This is far more important.

Luna: Stop it, Aunt Li. This is not the time or place. Please just– just go.

Li: Not until I’ve made something very clear to your mother.

Poppy: It’s okay, Luna. I appreciate your support, but I’d like to talk to my sister alone. It’s fine.

Li: You are without a doubt the most shameless person. Have you no shred of decency?

Poppy: Not according to you.

Li: Bill Spencer, one of the wealthiest men in Los Angeles. You’ve already set your sights on him. did it, Penelope? To find your next sugar daddy?

Donna: Okay, don’t you make me cry saying things like that. That’s not fair.

Eric: Like what? Like how beautiful you are? And like how I– I couldn’t have got through any of this without you? And I… I don’t deserve you.

Ridge: You know what Dad asked you to do to keep a secret would have broken most people.

Brooke: But not you. You stayed strong. You knew that’s what he needed.

Katie: Your strength, your support, your love.

Eric: Your love, most of all. Your… standing vigil by my bed every day, every night. Holding my hand, telling me to fight. without you.

Donna: I would never give up on you, Eric, because you are my everything.

Eric: I’m the luckiest man alive to have you by my side.

Liam: Listen, I– I– I know that it hasn’t been easy for you and you were trying to reunite with Katie there, and that didn’t really pan out, and yeah, I get it.

Bill: I– I can’t blame her. All the painful history and everything I put her through. I understand why she’s guarded.

Liam: Poppy isn’t, right? I mean, also, I mean, the way it sounds, it’s like no time has been lost at all between the two of you.

Bill: Yeah, more or less. Yeah.

Liam: Well…

Bill: What?

Liam: Well, you may not want to call it fate, but… it’s totally fate.

Luna: Can you believe my Aunt Li? Just walking in here and attacking my mom like that?

RJ: I know. I know. She didn’t even let Poppy explain.

Luna: Well, she never does. I mean, my mom could literally never do anything right in her eyes.

RJ: Do you think we should’ve left the two of them alone? Was that smart?

Luna: I don’t know. I mean, my mom insisted.

RJ: Hey, I’m… I’m really sorry that, you know, you have to go through all of this.

Luna: I’m sorry. I’m sorry that my Aunt Li keeps coming in here and embarrassing herself and our family, just lashing out that way.

RJ: Well, I– I’d be remiss if I didn’t say that my family has had one or two or half a billion dozen arguments here at Forrester. It’s– it’s okay. Don’t worry about it.

Luna: What’s not okay is Aunt Li thinking that my mom has to justify her involvement with Bill Spencer.

Poppy: It isn’t what you’re thinking.

Li: Oh, it most certainly is. I know you sister, dear. This is classic Penelope Nozawa.

Poppy: Will you just hear me out?

Li: I don’t have to. I’ve seen this kind of thing happen repeatedly with you.

Poppy: I… Bill and I have a history. It happened years and years ago, and a lot has happened since then, but the night we had was just beautiful. And it’s something that neither of us has ever forgotten. Oh, my God. You slept with the man. You slept with Bill Spencer.

Donna: You’re the kindest, sweetest man I know. I mean, to be part of your life, to share in your world, it… There aren’t even words for me to describe how grateful I am for that. And when I thought that, uh, I was gonna lose you… the only thing in this world I wanted more was time. Just another day with you, another night with you. And now we have it. We were given the gift of time. And there’s not gonna be a moment that goes by that I take it for granted because we have each other again. And that’s the only thing in the world that matters to me. Will ever matter.

Katie: Guys, if you keep this up, we’re all gonna be basket cases.

Brooke: Yeah, I’m okay. Just, you know me. I’m just a sucker for this. I mean, listening to everything that they’ve been through the last few months… it’s crazy. It’s also beautiful. So, it proves my point. Love conquers all. The things that Donna said to Eric and what Eric said to her, it’s just… That’s what brought him home. Brought him home to you, to my sister.

Luna: I just really feel for my mom. Like, sure, she comes off like she doesn’t have a care in the world, but when I was growing up, things were really hard for her. And this was something that Aunt Li knew about, but instead of being supportive and understanding–

RJ: She’s just judgmental.

Luna: Yeah, and she obviously still is. Why can’t she just love my mom for the way she is?

RJ: The way you do.

Luna: Exactly. And look, I’m not saying that my mom is perfect, but for Aunt Li to call her a gold digger?

RJ: What?

Luna: Yeah. She called her a gold digger, which just could not be further from the truth. My mom has never depended on anyone for anything. She always made a way for herself.

RJ: So why won’t your aunt acknowledge that?

Luna: I don’t know. It does make me smile a little bit though.

RJ: Why?

Luna: Just thinking about how crazy Aunt Li’s gonna get when she realizes how close my mom and Bill actually are and that they have a little history together.

Li: I can’t believe it. No. Of course I can believe it. You slept with Bill Spencer.

Poppy: Years ago, Li. Hey, there was just an instant attraction.

Li: Right. So you just jumped in the sack with a man.

Poppy: Okay, what we had was beautiful and special and I won’t let you think otherwise.

Li: What I think is that whenever a rich, good-looking man is involved, you will stoop to anything.

Poppy: Hey, that is not what that was. Not that it’s any of your business.

Li: Listen to me, Penelope. I’m putting you on notice again. Bill Spencer is Kelly’s grandfather. I won’t allow you to sleep your way into that man’s world and into Finn and Steffy’s life! You and your loose morals. “It was special.” Please. One sordid, debaucherous night. No wonder Luna doesn’t know who her father is.

Liam: So, like, now what? Like, where do you go from here?

Bill: Well, we’re not heading to Vegas for a quickie wedding at the Elvis Chapel. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Liam: Uh, yeah, no, that’s not, uh, that’s not what I had in mind, but obviously you two are getting reacquainted.

Bill: You know, Liam, it’s strange, but in ways I feel like I already know everything I need to know about Poppy. She’s just very open and forthcoming person. And I can’t imagine that there is anything she would tell me that would change things between us.

Ridge: Well, this is nice. Quite a love fest we’re having here.

Eric: It is, isn’t it? I like it.

Brooke: We’re all so happy you’re home, Eric.

Katie: House hasn’t been the same without you.

Donna: Oh, nothing has been the same without you.

Ridge: I know I haven’t been the same. Do you know what it’s like having to put up a charade like this? For I don’t know how long, you know, pretending that we didn’t know there’s something wrong with you? It’s hard. And the girls are right. It’s amazing having you back. Our patriarch. You lead us in everything. Family, business… So much more to me than just Dad. You’re my best friend. And I love you. And I thought I was gonna lose you.

Eric: Well, you didn’t. And you’re not gonna lose me for a long, long time. I love you, son.

Ridge: I love you so much.

Eric: Fix me a martini, will you?

Donna: Doesn’t give up.

Hope: Yep. Yeah, I just got back from visiting him. can I give you a call back? Yes. Okay, love you too. Bye. Hey, Thomas.

Thomas: Hey, Douglas left his math books. I figured he might need it for homework.

Hope: Great. Thank you.

Thomas: Yeah, I um– I don’t know. It’s– it’s been a second since our discussion the other night. I wanted to check in. It was kind of intense.

Hope: Yes, it was.

Thomas: Look, I know that I said that I’d give you time and I want to respect that. I just– I just wanna make sure you’re okay.

Poppy: You rented this place to RJ?

Bill: No, I didn’t rent it to RJ. Wyatt rented it to RJ.

Poppy: God. God, so I was right? The voice I heard, that was Luna. So, we’re in here in the bedroom and my daughter is out there in the living room.

Bill: Mm-hmm.

Luna: Mm. Did you hear that?

RJ: Hear what?

Luna: I don’t know. It sounds like someone’s in the house?

RJ: It’s probably just someone down by the beach.

Luna: No, I could have sworn that it was coming from the bedroom. There’s no way that anyone would be here, right? In one of the bedrooms?

RJ: No, no. What? Wyatt gave me the keys. I’m– I’m the one and only tenant. I mean, hey, if you wanted to, we could check the bedroom. You know, just to make sure. We haven’t really finished the tour yet.

Luna: No, you’re right. I’m sorry, I’ll stop being so jumpy.

RJ: No, hey, it’s fine. We have had our fair share of interruptions for the past couple of days. We’re good at it. No, but I– I completely– I get it. I understand. Nobody is going to interrupt us. No one’s gonna walk in on us. We have complete privacy here. Okay?

Hope: I was um, actually just telling my mom about my visit with Eric.

Thomas: Oh, yeah, Steffy and I were over there with Dad and your mom.

Hope: I’m just happy that uh, Eric is finally home.

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah, we were worried that we might not see him outside of a hospital bed again. And thankfully, uh, he’s kind of back to his old self. I mean, he’s– he’s weak, but he’s making jokes, getting everybody to laugh.

Hope: Oh, that Eric. He is an inspiration for us all. And his recovery is nothing short of a miracle.

Thomas: It really is a miracle. It’s just like the miracle of after all the bad choices I made, you somehow still open your heart to me.

Poppy: Here, put your shirt on, Bill.

Bill: Poppy, we’re good. They’re in the living room.

Poppy: Yes, but they can come in here any second and I don’t want my daughter seeing me like this.

Bill: Like what? All hot and sexy and grr.

Poppy: Here.

Bill: You know what? This is my house, all right? I’m doing some home maintenance.

Poppy: Yeah, right. You maintenance?

Bill: All right. Well, that’s a fair point. Although, I am pretty good with my hands.

Poppy: Well, then use them to help me with these buttons.

Bill: Only if you promise you unbutton them again later.

Poppy: You’re too much. Okay. How do we get outta here?

Bill: Well, let’s see. How about, uh, the door?

Bill: RJ and Luna will never know we were here.

Poppy: Thank you, Bill.

Bill: You’re welcome. Follow me.

Luna: Mom?

Hope: Thomas, we don’t need to get into all that right now.

Thomas: Yeah, no. I– I didn’t– Sorry, I didn’t mean to bring it up.

Hope: No, it’s just, I– I think today has been a really positive day. What with Eric finally getting out of the hospital and I’d just rather bask in that instead of dredging up all the other stuff.

Thomas: Yeah, I know. I’m sorry. We don’t have to ever discuss it again. Um, those mistakes from the past. They live inside of me, so I continue to learn from them, but I want nothing more than to move on from it all, together. And I miss you, Hope. I miss you very much.

RJ: Oh, my God. She is.

Luna: Mom, Mom. What are you doing here? And where are you coming from?

Bill: Oh, um, we were just hiking around outside a little bit. Uh, I was giving your mom kind of a tour of the place. I wanted to have a real sense of it before Wyatt leased it out and little did I know, he had already rented it to you.

RJ: Yeah. Yeah, he gave me the keys earlier today.

Bill: Right. You know, that’s– that’s my fault. I hadn’t checked my text messages until just now. so I– I had no idea that you’d already moved in.

RJ: No, it’s on– it’s on me. I just– I wanted to show Luna the place. I knew she was gonna love it.

Bill: Yeah, well, yeah, I mean, what’s not to love? It’s uh, it’s very magical. And a hell of a– of a shore break. I’m sure you’re gonna be very happy here, RJ.

RJ: Yeah. Yeah, me too.

Bill: Well, um, don’t let us interrupt you.

Poppy: Yeah, we’re– we’re really sorry. Um, we just thought it would be fun to see the beach house. And you know what? This is a great location. Like, the view is just stunning.

RJ: Yeah, no, it’s– it’s cool, it’s cool. We were– Luna and I were just getting settled in.

Bill: Enjoy the beach, and RJ…

RJ: Yeah.

Bill: Be good to this one. Luna is very special.

Luna: Oh, thank you, Bill. That’s very sweet of you to say.

RJ: Yeah, I couldn’t agree with you more. She is a– She’s a very, incredibly special girl. I’ll be spending a lot of time with you. But, uh, not today because you are right. You do own the place and I haven’t officially signed the lease yet. So we will be back another time, sir.

Bill: Oh, no, no, no. You don’t have to run off on my account.

Luna: No, really, really. It’s fine. And you and I will talk later, okay?

Poppy: Well, that was awkward. Stop laughing. It’s not funny.

Bill: It’s a little funny.

Poppy: It is not funny. It’s not funny.

Bill: And just like that, we’ve got the place all to ourselves.

Poppy: I can’t believe that just happened.

Bill: I don’t know who was more embarrassed, you or your daughter.

Poppy: We were both mortified. Do you think they knew that we were inside?

Bill: Absolutely. No, I’m– I’m teasing you. They didn’t have a clue.

Poppy: I don’t know.

Bill: What difference would it make anyway? Would it be so terrible if your daughter knew that you were having a good time?

Poppy: Yes, I should be setting a good example for my daughter, okay? We’ve only had two dates.

Bill: Uh, three dates, if you count -plus years ago.

Poppy: Technically, does that count as a date? I mean, we just happened to meet and–

Bill: Yeah, and spend many, many, many hours together. And, well, you might say it was, uh, life changing. At least for me.

Poppy: It was a night I could never forget. But you hear what I’m saying.

Bill: Yeah, no. Yes, of course. I mean, you know, you’re a quality parent and you want to set a good example for your daughter.

Poppy: I mean, not that Luna would be judgmental in any way and she’s obviously very fond of you.

Bill: Well, the feeling is mutual and you raised quite a daughter. And that’s a real tribute to you doing it all on your own. Luna has– has many wonderful qualities. She is– Look, she is who she is because of you.

Luna: Bill and my mom totally saw us kissing.

RJ: I don’t know. I mean, did– did we get busted?

Luna: Yes, the blinds were wide open and they were right by the window. Besides, I could tell by the way my mom was acting so weird.

RJ: Yeah. You know, Bill was definitely doing a lot of talking and she wasn’t saying much.

Luna: Yeah, she was way too quiet. What were they even doing there? What, Bill just so happened to be showing her the house?

RJ: They, uh, seemed just as surprised as we were, I guess.

Luna: I mean, I’m sure my mom felt horrible and didn’t want to intrude.

RJ: That was nuts.

Luna: We finally had a place to ourselves, RJ. An entire house and guess who shows up out of the blue? My mother, my mother!

RJ: It was– it was kind of hilarious though.

Luna: No, it’s not funny.

RJ: No, you should’ve– Okay, you should have seen the expression on your face. You were just sitting there and you were like…

Luna: I did not look like that.

RJ: Yes, you did, yes you– Actually, it was even worse… She turned and you were just like, oh!

Luna: Oh, my God. All we wanted was some time alone together.

RJ: We did, we did and we are O for three.

Luna: We just can’t seem to catch a break.

Hope: What you told me was… shocking, to say the least. And, um, I’m still trying to process all of that.

Thomas: Of course.

Hope: But it’s also not just about you. These past few weeks, they, um– Have brought up a lot of pain for me. That time in my life that I have tried to move past. Those painful memories. Um, not having my daughter. All the things that were done to try to keep her away from me. Uh, yeah, that is a part of my story and Thomas, I can’t just pretend like it didn’t happen. But I also don’t want to be ruled by my past. I mean, look at my life. I have so much to be grateful for. I have a beautiful daughter and our amazing son. And I just am trying to focus on them. Focus on– on happiness, on myself and– and what is best for– for all of us. And that is, uh, why I asked for a little more time.

Thomas: Sure. Yeah.

Hope: But I– I don’t want you to think that I– That I’ve stopped caring for you because actually, um, uh, my mother was here the other day after you left and I actually told her that she needs to stop fighting our relationship.

Thomas: You did?

Hope: Yes, I did.

Thomas: Well, you have no idea how happy that makes me. How beautiful it is that you still believe in me.

Poppy: Today did not work out as planned, did it?

Bill: We could pick up where we left off. I will have those locks changed but quick.

Poppy: I think this place belongs to RJ now, at least until his lease is up.

Bill: Yeah. Lucky kid. Well, I’m– I’m glad that Luna will be spending more time here.

Poppy: Yeah, me too. I mean, this really is a magical place and Luna and RJ, they really are so sweet together. And look what we did. We ruined their little date.

Bill: What are you talking about? They ruined our little date.

Poppy: It’s true. Do you think Luna will ever let me live this down?

Bill: It could have been a lot worse. She could have walked in on a bit of action.

Poppy: Don’t even put that out there.

Bill: I don’t think they’re gonna be back, you know? We could just pick up where we left off.

Poppy: Seeing my daughter kind of killed the mood. I like this.

Bill: I meant what I said earlier. You’re a remarkable woman. And I look forward to many, many, many more dates together. And getting to know Luna better as well.

Luna: I feel like we might be cursed.

RJ: We might be. We definitely have some bad luck when it comes to being alone.

Luna: Yeah, I just keep expecting someone to walk in on us. Between here and your mom’s place?

RJ: I know. I know. I just want to kiss you so bad.

Luna: Yeah, but as soon as our lips get within three inches of each other…

RJ: I know, bam door opens every single time.

Luna: I know, I wonder who it will be next time. Whatever. I just say we go for it.

RJ: Yeah?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, it’s risky, but it’s worth it.

RJ: Do you think it’s safe?

RJ: Do you think it’s safe?

Hope: I mean, I haven’t forgotten. Everything we’ve shared, so many wonderful times.

Thomas: Together, we can do anything. Okay. Beautiful. You’ve blown me away with your big heart. Your generosity and forgiving spirit. It’s just amazing to me. And you still have that ring on your necklace. Know what that means to me? Hope. Hope for us. Hope for our future because of your forgiveness, because of your generosity. You’ve gotten me to a place where I feel like I’m maybe actually worthy of you, worthy of your love. And Hope, I love you so much. And I miss you. I miss touching you. I miss holding you. I miss kissing you.

Poppy: What about your son, Wyatt?

Bill: Don’t worry about Wyatt. Wyatt’s gone.

Poppy: He’s not coming back?

Bill: Wyatt is gone. We’re alone. All alone.

Luna: RJ, that view. The ocean’s right there.

RJ: Yeah, well, you know, the view from the inside is pretty breathtaking too.

Luna: So, this is really your place now?

RJ: Yeah, it is. But it’s also yours because it’s where I want to spend a lot of time with you. Where we can finally have a little bit of privacy. have a little bit of privacy.

Li: I heard the wonderful news. Eric was discharged.

Finn: Yes, Steffy and Thomas were just at the house with their grandfather.

Li: And here’s my humble son hard at work. Saving more lives the way you saved Eric’s.

Thomas: Yeah, Granddad looks great. Not 100% obviously, but great.

Steffy: I wish we could have stayed longer.

Thomas: Next time.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. Next time.

Thomas: Hey, he’s Okay.

Steffy: I just still can’t believe it. I mean, he’s alive. He’s actually home.

Thomas: Thanks to your husband. Look, I know Finn and I have had our issues, but what he did finding that treatment, taking that risk? He saved Granddad’s life

Thomas: It is so awesome. The energy out there. Everyone’s so excited. They want to talk about Granddad.

Steffy: I know. There’s so many messages congratulating Granddad. And just to see his face, he’s just so thrilled to be home.

Thomas: Yes, he does need rest though, because he’s not %.

Steffy: Yeah. No, I– I– I get that. But where he was and now he’s like this. This is a big day for our family, for Granddad. And we really need to be celebrating Finn too.

Finn: Eric’s recovery was a team effort.

Li: Well, but there’s one person who deserves a lot of the credit.

Finn: No, you’re right. None of this would have been possible without Eric’s hard work to recover.

Li: You can downplay your role as much as you want, but as a doctor, I know how serious Eric’s condition was. The lengths you went to save him. Honey, what you achieved was extraordinary.

Finn: He’s one of the most important people in Steffy’s life. I had to do everything I could.

Li: I’m so proud of you, son.

Finn: Thanks, Mom. That– Your support means a lot. But you know who else could use some of that? Luna and Aunt Poppy.

Luna: Wait, did you hear that?

RJ: Hear what? I don’t hear it. It’s probably just the ocean.

Luna: Uh, I’m sorry, I’m just a little jumpy. It’s just– I’ve never been here before and it kind of feels like I’m in someone else’s house.

Thomas: What? No, you’re not. This is my place. Maybe how if I show you around, maybe you’ll be a little more comfortable? Yeah? Come on.

Steffy: I will definitely pass that on to him. Thank you for getting in touch, Manuel. Okay, you too. Bye.

Thomas: Well wishes for Granddad? Yes. And many thanks to my husband.

Thomas: That’s very well deserved.

Steffy: It is, but if you ask Finn, he’ll just tell you he was doing his job.

Thomas: Yeah, I mean, he can say that, but the reality is– is Granddad saw other doctors. None of them gave him a reason to hope.

Steffy: Because the treatment was experimental. Attempting it on a patient like Granddad, at his age? I mean, it was really risky, but Finn said it was worth a shot.

Thomas: Finn’s a stubborn guy and I’m very grateful for it.

Steffy: He is, but he also is very determined. Ah, this is just, it’s amazing. It really is. And it’s such a relief knowing that Granddad’s home and he’s recovering.

Thomas: Yeah. Speaking of people that are determined and stubborn, I know a guy who’s going to be very well soon. I mean, Granddad is– is extremely stubborn and he’s gonna keep pushing ’til he’s right as rain.

Steffy: Yeah, but he is the glue that holds our family together.

Thomas: Yeah.

Steffy: Look, Finn doesn’t want to take credit for any of this, but he knows the gift that he’s given us. I mean, it was awful knowing that we were losing Granddad. I couldn’t imagine our life without him. But now, thanks to Finn, we have a future with Granddad.

Li: I don’t understand why you feel the need to advocate for your aunt?

Finn: What? So you– you just don’t want a better relationship with your sister? Aunt Poppy is so sweet.

Li: Sweet?

Finn: Yes.

Li: Your aunt only pretends to be sweet, helpless and innocent. She’s perfected it to survive. All so she can fall into the arms of another rich, handsome man.

RJ: And back to the living room, my dear. Watch your step. Be careful. Uh, I don’t know about you, but I see a lot of nights in our future by that fire pit, you know?

Luna: I just can’t believe that Wyatt wanted to leave this place.

RJ: Right. I know. No, I, uh, I think there’s gonna be a lot of amazing and surprising things that happen here. Starting tonight?

Luna: Hm. We’re finally alone.

RJ: We are finally alone. There’s nobody here to interrupt us.

Luna: Well, there’s still one room you haven’t shown me.

RJ: Oh, yeah.

Steffy: I had so much faith in Finn and it didn’t make it easy for Dad, but–

Thomas: Yeah, but you trusted your instincts. I’m glad you did and– and I’m glad Dad did too.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I really tried to convince dad to give Finn’s treatment a chance.

Thomas: But he did. And it’s incredible. I mean, look, I– I don’t always appreciate your opinions, especially when they have to do with my personal life, but, you can be pretty persuasive.

Steffy: I’m gonna remember you said that.

Thomas: Okay.

Steffy: Okay, I’m gonna go see Finn.

Thomas: Before you do, um… Look Finn and I have had a lot of issues recently, but, um, please tell him just how grateful I am for what he did for Granddad.

Steffy: I will, Thomas.

Thomas: Thanks.

Steffy: He was just trying to help. It’s really the reason for everything he does. For our family, for his patients. He just wants to try to make a difference. It’s one of the many things I love about him.

Thomas: Bye.

Steffy: Bye.

Finn: I just– I just don’t think you’re being fair, Mom.

Li: I’m being protective. You, of all people should appreciate that. I’m looking out for my family.

Finn: You’re punishing Aunt Poppy for something that she did years ago.

Li: No, I– I know my sister. The choices she makes, how she behaves. What she’s capable of.

Finn: Okay, but what does that have to do with who she is today? Huh? Because I’ve been spending time with Luna and she says nothing but wonderful things.

Li: Oh, well, thank God for that. At least your aunt had the decency to keep her bad decisions and unsavory appetites away from her child.

Finn: Appetites? Geez, seriously?

Li: Let’s just say my sister very much likes the intimate company of men. Especially older, wealthy men. I don’t like talking about it, but you need to know. She will never change. I put my sister on notice. I told her not to go hunting for a sugar daddy in Los Angeles. I won’t allow her to bring shame on our family again. I want her gone, away from us before she sets her sights on her next conquest.

Poppy: Look at you.

Bill: Me? No. No, no, no. Look at you. I can’t believe that I’m holding you in my arms all these years later. I keep thinking about the music festival and the magic that we made that night. And more and more, I’m feeling like this isn’t random. You came back into my life for a reason.

RJ: What is it? Do you not want to?

Luna: No, I do. I’ve been looking forward to a night like this just as much as you have. Just– Something feels off. Like– like I shouldn’t be here.

Bill: What? Did I do something?

Poppy: Sh.

Bill: What do you mean, sh?

Poppy: I mean, sh. I heard voices in the other room. I think it’s my daughter.

Bill: What?

Bill: Your daughter is out there?

Poppy: I think I heard her voice.

Bill: What?

Poppy: You said your son Wyatt rented this place to somebody.

Bill: What? You think he rented it to Luna? I don’t know what they’re paying interns at Forrester, but that is highly unlikely.

Poppy: No, she can’t possibly afford a place like this.

Bill: Poppy, your daughter is not out there.

Poppy: Then, why are you whispering?

Bill: Because you’re whispering! You know what? I’m gonna go check.

Poppy: Wait, wait. Wait, not like that.

Bill: All right. I’m gonna text Wyatt. Find out who we leased the place to. And will that put your mind at ease?

Luna: I want to be alone with you, RJ.

RJ: Well, we are alone, right? Yes, I know, but… something feels off, okay? I just– I can’t shake the feeling that we’re not supposed to be here.

RJ: We are supposed to be here, okay? This is– this is for us. Wyatt’s not coming back. No one’s gonna barge in on us. It’s just the two of us.

Luna: Okay.

RJ: Okay.

Bill: Ah.

Poppy: What is it?

Bill: Wyatt texted me back.

Poppy: You’re whispering.

Bill: Well, you better whisper too.

Poppy: Why? Who did Wyatt rent the beach house to?

Bill: RJ. Forrester Junior.

Poppy: My daughter’s boyfriend?

Bill: Wyatt already gave him the keys.

Poppy: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. So, I was right. Luna’s here.

Bill: Well, someone’s here.

Finn: If you keep this up, I’m not gonna get any work done.

Steffy: It’s all part of my plan.

Finn: Hm. I’ll always make time for my gorgeous wife. You went to the house to see Eric?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: Yeah. He looks good considering.

Finn: Yeah, just remember, you know, it’s gonna take some time. Recovery is a process. There’s a lot of milestones to hit, but getting discharged is the big one.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: It’s just a miracle getting him out of the hospital. He’s home now. I just think about all the times we’ve celebrated so many events and so many memories and then the last time we were there, we were saying our goodbyes. But today, today we were, uh, we were together and it just felt so good. It was really nice.

Finn: I mean, Eric fought like hell to make that happen. So did you, hm? You and your entire family. I mean, all your prayers and the support for Eric and for each other. That’s what pulled him through.

Steffy: Well, I– I’m not discounting any of that. We did everything we could, but Finn, come on, it was you. It was.

Finn: Eric had a whole team.

Steffy: No, it was you, Finn. You saved him. Just like you saved me all those years ago.

Finn: Steffy?

Daytime Soap Opera Short Recaps

Recap written by Suzanne

Today is make-out day on the show! At the beach house (formerly Wyatt’s), Bill and Poppy are half-dressed and kissing, in the bedroom. Meanwhile, RJ and Luna are in the living room, admiring the view (Wyatt rented it out to RJ). Then they start kissing as well. The show goes back and forth between the two couples, teasing us. Will RJ and Luna walk in on Bill and Poppy having sex? Thankfully, no.

Bill tells Poppy that he thinks their meeting was not random. She came back into his life for a reason. Luna hears some sounds, so RJ shows her around the beach house (but oddly, doesn’t go into the bedroom). They go back to kissing, but Luna is uneasy. She’s apparently psychic because she feels like something is not right.

Poppy hears voices and recognizes Luna’s voice. Bill thinks that’s highly unlikely, but he texts Wyatt to find out that he rented the place to RJ. Whoops! Poppy starts to freak out a bit.

Finn is texting Steffy from his office when Li drops by. She praises him on how he saved Eric’s life. Finn is modest about it, but she is proud of him. He thanks her but suggests she more supportive of Poppy and Luna. She doesn’t want to hear that and talks about how Poppy is a gold digger who preys on older rich men. She has to protect her family from that (she at least does admit, finally, that Luna is innocent of all this). Finn is disgusted by what she says. They argue.

At Forrester, Thomas and Steffy chat about how much better Eric is doing, and how he’s settling in at home. They’re very grateful to Finn for saving him. They think they should celebrate Eric and Finn. Phone calls have been pouring in to wish Eric well. Thomas makes a point of telling Steffy how grateful he is to him for what he did for Eric.

Later, Finn and Steffy make out in his office. They talk about Eric, too, and she credits Finn for saving him. Finn is modest about it, as always. As she talks about how great Finn is, they show flashbacks to when they first met (when he saved her life), when they had a baby, when he proposed, and when he found her again (after she thought he had died).

Eric: Now, Ridge, I, uh… it’s really important for me to have you understand.

Ridge: I do understand, Dad. I do. I understand what I took from you. You said you were at peace.

Eric: I was at peace. I– I– I found contentment and-and-and-and… unconditional love. That’s what– That’s what I saw there.

Ridge: And you saw Mom. You said Mom was waiting for you.

Eric: Yeah, she was. Wonderful, impossible Stephanie, she was there.

Ridge: So let me ask you one more time. Did I let you down? Did you want to stay?

Poppy: Be honest. You didn’t think I’d take you up on your dare, did you? Getting up and dancing in front of everyone?

Bill: Well, I am not one who is easily surprised, but that…

Poppy: Did I embarrass you?

Bill: Do I look embarrassed? you seemed to enjoy it.

Bill: Well, that’s because I did enjoy it, very much. I love that side of you.

Poppy: My uninhibited side?

Bill: That’s the one.

Poppy: Well, then maybe you should try it.

Bill: What? What that? Oh, no, no, no. My disco Saturday night days are well behind me.

Poppy: No, impetuous side. Exactly. Dare you.

Bill: All right, let me tell you something, okay? If I– if I did, we’d have to clear this whole place out ’cause I would take over the floor. Although, that might not be a bad thing.

Poppy: Because?

Bill: ‘Cause then I would have you all to myself. I wouldn’t have to share you with anyone.

Luna: Here, let me help.

RJ: Oh, thank you.

Luna: Good workout?

RJ: Yeah, sure.

Luna: You really need to get a place of your own.

RJ: I have some good news. Actually, I have a lot of good news. Granddad is getting out of the hospital today.

Luna: Really?

RJ: Yeah.

Luna: That’s amazing. I’m so happy for Eric and for all of you.

RJ: Yeah, yeah, yeah. My-My dad’s, uh, getting him settled in right now. Which is what I’m gonna be doing soon. Getting settled in because I found a place. It’s a beach house. It’s really close to my sister Steffy’s place, and I think you’re gonna love it.

Luna: Wow, that’s– Oh, my God, that’s– that’s amazing. When do you move in?

RJ: Um, today.

Luna: Today?

Luna: I know you said you wanted to find your own place, but I had no idea you were actually working on one. And at the beach?

RJ: Yeah. Well, you know, I just had to make sure it actually happened before I told you.

Luna: Well, how did it happen so quickly?

RJ: Mm… That’s a good question. Um… Well, let’s just say I was uh, motivated.

Luna: Oh, yeah?

RJ: Yeah. You know, every time I look at you, I see you, kiss you… I just get even more determined.

Wyatt: This must be the girlfriend. If not, you’re in big trouble.

RJ: It is. It is the girlfriend. This is Luna. Luna, meet Wyatt. Wyatt, Luna.

Wyatt: Nice to meet you.

Luna: You too.

Wyatt: Uh, sorry about the timing.

RJ: No. No, it’s fine. We’re, uh, we’re actually really, really talented at getting interrupted. It happens all the time. But in this case, it’s really welcome, you know, uh, because Wyatt is the one who owns the beach house.

Luna: Oh.

RJ: Yeah.

Wyatt: Oh, speaking of which, here you go.

RJ: Oh!

Wyatt: You might wanna make another one if you’re gonna have any guests.

Poppy: Come on, dance with me. I promise you’ll have fun, okay? Just– just live in the moment and let whatever happens just happen.

Bill: Like I did that night? That magical night for both of us. I have a better idea. I mean, this has been fun, but I want to be alone with you, Poppy. And then we can dance or whatever all night long.

Ridge: I was torn, Dad. I knew what Finn wanted to do. I– I– I knew what they wanted. I knew what you wanted. And I knew what I wanted. I didn’t want to say goodbye to you. Wasn’t ready.

Eric: It’s okay, son. I understand.

Wyatt: Confession?

RJ: Okay.

Wyatt: I mean, it ain’t gonna be easy moving out of the beach house. I got a lot of special memories there.

RJ: Well, hey, you know, you’re– you’re always gonna be welcome to, like, stop by.

Wyatt: Thank you. I appreciate it. Just call ahead first, right?

RJ: Yes. Please.

Wyatt: Uh, Anyway, you– you have everything you need, right? Uh, you got the key.

RJ: Yep, check, got the key.

Wyatt: Uh, you’re renting it fully furnished, so all you need are your clothes, toothbrush, trunks, surfboards. I’m taking mine with me.

RJ: Aw…

Luna: Do you have any idea where you’re gonna go?

Wyatt: I’m not sure. I uh, dunno, maybe hang around LA, spread my wings. I don’t know. See what’s out there in this big wide world for yours truly.

RJ: Wyatt, dude, wherever you land, you’re absolutely gonna make the most of it.

Wyatt: I intend to. Um, just like you guys should, you know, at the beach house, make some amazing memories together.

Poppy: Aren’t you gonna get that?

Bill: What?

Poppy: Your phone. It’s vibrating.

Bill: I hadn’t noticed. Too distracted.

Poppy: I didn’t realize I had that effect on you.

Bill: From the day I first laid eyes on you.

Poppy: That seems like a lifetime ago.

Bill: Well, in some ways it is. But like I told you, from the day you walked in this restaurant, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you. I haven’t forgotten, Poppy and I know you haven’t forgotten either. I think we need to do something about that.

Poppy: What did you have in mind?

Bill: It’s a surprise. Come with me.

Eric: Ridge, I don’t want to hear another word about whether you let me down or not. I’m a blessed man. I went to the other side, and I saw how beautiful it is there, how wondrous and there’s nothing– nothing to worry about. Nothing at all. But as wonderful as it is there, I am so happy to be back here with all of you, So happy. Don’t doubt that. Never doubt that.

Zende: It’s true! You’re here.

Donna: Slow down.

Zende: Okay, okay, okay. Oh, my God, Granddad, seeing you here, out of that hospital bed, back where you belong… is what we’ve all been praying for.

Zende: It truly is a miracle. I never stopped hoping, I never stopped believing, despite the odds, despite everything. How do you feel? You look great.

Eric: I feel really good. Thank you. I’m ready to go back to work.

Donna: What? No.

Zende: You gotta take it easy.

Eric: All right, all right. I’ll rest. I’ll rest for a while until I’m ready, okay? Yeah, my wonderful grandson. So talented. You look pretty good too, yeah? Thank you. I appreciate so much you coming to the hospital and visiting me. It really, uh… it lifted my spirits.

Zende: Next to my dad, you’re the man I admire most. Don’t ever leave me– us– again, okay?

Eric: Okay. Okay.

Luna: Sometimes I feel like I need to pinch myself.

RJ: Why?

Luna: This. Being here at Forrester with you. Talking about a house in Malibu. This is just so not what I’m used to.

RJ: Well, how do you mean?

Luna: Well, my upbringing. It’s so different from yours, you know? My mom raised me solo. She was like this strong-willed but peaceful, spiritual merchant who would set up, like, her little stands and sell her tie-dyed, handmade shirts. Or sometimes she’d just get like regular old shirts and make them super cool. Um, but yeah, she worked at, like, farmers’ markets and festivals and things like that. It was definitely down to earth. But I never felt poor though. You know, like we always had each other and we lived a really good life.

RJ: Sounds amazing. My mom is amazing. She’s so free spirited and independent, and she’s also a ballerina and a singer too. Yeah, but me, I was always a little more on the serious side.

RJ: Hmm. But not Poppy?

Luna: No, definitely not Poppy. I was always in awe of her. I love the way she lived her life and the way she loved so openly and freely with no excuses or apologies.

RJ: Well, there’s something to be said for that, you know.

Luna: But when it comes to relationships, let’s just say that I’m glad that I waited for the right guy.

RJ: I’m glad you did too. So, um, if you’re free or whatever, uh, would you like to check out the new place?

Luna: Yes. Let’s go.

RJ: Let’s go.

Bill: You like it?

Poppy: God, it’s amazing. And just steps away from the Pacific? Is this where you live?

Bill: Uh it’s one of my properties. My son Wyatt has been living here for quite a while, but… I don’t know, he’s going through something and he feels like he needs a change.

Poppy: So he’s moving out.

Bill: Yeah. I’m not sure what I’m gonna do with the place. Can I pour you one?

Poppy: No, thanks. I’m not really a drinker.

Bill: Ah, your– your special mints.

Poppy: These are not just any mints.

Bill: Yeah? Well, I’m gonna stick with scotch.

Poppy: You know, I have to say, I mean, if this was my place, like, there’s no way I could ever sell it. It’s so– it’s so magical.

Bill: It is.

Bill: Wyatt said he already found a renter, but, I don’t know. I have to figure out what to do long term. Maybe I’ll keep it. Use it to romance a beautiful woman.

Bill: You know, when I– when I close my eyes, I can– I can still see you dancing in front of that bonfire at Golden Gate Park.

Poppy: All those years ago.

Bill: You were like no woman I’d ever known, before or since

Poppy: I feel like this is leading somewhere.

Bill: I hope to the bedroom. Am I coming on too strong?

Poppy: No, it isn’t that. It’s just–

Bill: What?

Poppy: All right, this is gonna sound crazy, but my sister Li, she’s like super judgmental of me and she says I’m always coming on to wealthy men. And it would be really easy to fall into your arms, Bill. But my sister’s wrong. I don’t need a man.

Bill: I know you don’t need me, but I sense that you want me. Just like I want you.

Poppy: This way?

Bill: Yeah.

RJ: You ready?

Luna: Mm-hmm.

RJ: Here it is.

Luna: Oh, my God, RJ, I– this is, I can’t even–

RJ: It’s amazing, right?

Luna: It’s so awesome! Oh, my God.

RJ: I’m glad you like it. I hope we’re gonna be spending a lot of time here.

Ridge: Well, that was Steffy. She and her family want to stop by, if that’s okay with you, now that you’re settled in.

Eric: That’s great. I can’t wait to see them.

Brooke: And they want to see you too.

Donna: Of course, of course, we just didn’t want to overwhelm you, over tire you.

Eric: That’s all right. I’m not tired. Just being here is so energizing, I– I’m so happy to be here. It makes me feel great. You know, when I started feeling sick and then– and I didn’t want anyone to know, we had to keep it a secret and I was adamant about it. I didn’t want any– any pity or, uh, any concern from anybody. And I insisted on that. And I insisted on the– on the fashion challenge and– and on this goodbye party. I should have… I’m sorry, I should’ve let everybody in.

Zende: We understand why you didn’t, Granddad. It was your way of trying to spare us.

Eric: If I had known then what I know now, I mean, what I’ve seen and what I know about what’s coming to all of us when we pass away. It’s so beautiful, it’s so safe. Nothing to fear. And that– that’s– that’s the beauty of it It leaves us free to– to live our lives the way we want to.

Brooke: And cherish every second that we have together.

Eric: None of us knows how many days we have left, how many years. So we have to make the most of the time we have left.

Donna: That’s right. Actually, that’s what we all should be doing.

Zende: Will be doing.

Hope: Yeah.

Zende: Thanks to you, Granddad. Everything you’ve been through.

Ridge: You’re an inspiration. I love you.

Brooke: We all do.

Dona: So, so very much.

Eric: I love all of you, so much.

Donna: Here you go. It’s finally happening.

Nurse: We’ll miss you around here.

Eric: Been nothing but trouble for you since I’ve been here.

Nurse: Good trouble.

Eric: Thank you. Thank you for all your attentiveness and taking such good care of me. Thank you. And you, doctor. It wasn’t for you, this wouldn’t be happening, so I– I don’t know how to thank you. I– I can’t thank you enough.

Donna: I second that.

Ridge: If you’d told me a few weeks ago that we’d be here waiting for Dad to come home… I don’t know. I thought it was the end.

Brooke: So thankful it wasn’t Just so happy he’s gonna come home from the hospital. Just think what would have happened if you told Finn not to go through with that procedure.

Ridge: I hope he understands why I did what I did.

Sheila: And I’m gonna need two sidecars for table six, when you can do it, please.

Deacon: You know, I think I’m regretting giving Hollis the day off. I didn’t expect it to be this crowded.

Sheila: It’s become the norm lately. I– It’s understandable. It’s the best pizza in town.

Deacon: Best waitress in town too. That’s what keeps them coming back.

Sheila: Are you flirting?

Deacon: I could be.

Sheila: Are you flirting with me? That might get you lucky later. But what about the people that stopped coming because of me?

Deacon: I don’t want you worrying about that now, right? We’re doing just fine. Fantastic. I can’t get Brooke or Hope to come down here and this guy, it’s like three meals a day.

Sheila: You better go wait on your favorite customer, honey.

Deacon: Welcome back. So, a table for two?

Bill: Please.

Deacon: You’re in luck. We have one right here. And we happen to have a very special mushroom risotto. Best of all the lovely, charming Sheila will be your server. Here you go.

Bill: Interesting. When you said luck, I thought you meant the good kind.

Bill: I’m glad you agreed to see me again. The truth is, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you.

Poppy: A memory of the night we spent together all those years ago.

Bill: Yes, that. And the new memories that I’m hoping to make.

Sheila: Why’d you put them in my section? What? Did you do this on purpose? You thought it would be funny?

Deacon: I thought you could have a little fun with him. Hey, who knows? Maybe we’ll get lucky. We’ll get a crying toddler that comes in and we can seat him next to their table. Better yet, better yet, Tell Bill every time he uses his credit card that it’s declined.

Sheila: You know, he’s gonna pay with hundreds.

Deacon: That’s why they call him–

Both: Dollar Bill.

Sheila: Yeah, here goes. Hello. Hello. Bill, welcome back to Il Giardino. Uh, I don’t– I don’t think I’ve had the pleasure of meeting your new friend.

Poppy: I’m Poppy.

Sheila: Hi, Poppy, I’m Sheila. I’ll be your server. Can I start you with a drink?

Poppy: Uh, I’d love a still water.

Sheila: Okay.

Bill: If you don’t know my drink order by now, you’re an even worse waitress than I thought.

Sheila: Oh, no, I’ve got your number. Uh, would you like to know the specials?

Bill: No.

Sheila: Very well. I’ll get those drinks right up.

Bill: Just so you understand, I’m not normally rude to waitresses.

Poppy: Okay.

Bill: In fact, quite the opposite.

Poppy: So, this Sheila person…

Bill: Is the same Sheila who tried to kill your sister.

Ridge: He wanted to go. And I took that away from him.

Brooke: Are you serious? Eric is so happy to be alive. Ridge, he loves you. He loves his entire family. His work. There’s a reason he fought to be here. Trust me. If he wanted to go, he would have.

Eric: I really didn’t think I was ever gonna get out of here and certainly not to walk out on my own two feet. I don’t know. I don’t know if I can even process this.

Donna: Well, let’s just process this at home, shall we? It’s time and we’re done, right? All the paperwork’s good and…

Finn: Yeah, we’re good. Get out of here before I have to kick you out.

Eric: Oh, I don’t think it’s gonna come to that.

Finn: Eric. Congratulations. I know you– you credit me with this, but this is because of you and your hard work and your determination.

Eric: This is about the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Donna, I– I– I was gone for a while. I went somewhere and I… And what happened there, I’m never going to forget. I’m never gonna forget it for the rest of my life. I thank you for everything– everything you did. I’m so grateful. I’ll never forget.

Sheila: Here we go. A still water for you, Poppy. And a scotch neat for Mr. Spencer. I’ll be right back to take your order.

Poppy: I’m gonna throw my drink in her face, you know? And give her a piece of my mind for what she did to my sister.

Bill: As much as I would like to see that, and I really would, you know, I do remember, you had a bit of a feisty side. Oh, listen, now it’s– it’s not worth it. Sheila is legitimately dangerous and eventually, she will snap and find herself back behind bars.

Poppy: You think?

Bill: I do? Hey, uh, that could be our next date. Just, you know, a fun night out visiting Sheila in prison.

Poppy: Mr. Romantic here.

Bill: Oh, we’d take you to the finest penitentiaries. I noticed you didn’t say no, so that must mean you’re open to seeing me again.

Poppy: Very open.

Carter: Hey, is that Eric? Is he–

Ridge: He’s not here yet.

Brooke: Donna texted and said they’re on their way.

Carter: Oh, must be thrilled. And I hope it’s okay that I’m here. You know how much I care about Eric and I wanted to be here to welcome him home.

Ridge: You’re family, Carter.

Donna: All right. Just take your time, take your time.

Ridge: There he is.

Carter: Man of the hour.

Eric: I should get at least a week.

Brooke: Oh, you’re here, Eric.

Eric: Hi.

Brooke: You’re really here.

Eric: I– Don’t hug me. Don’t. I wanna hug everybody, but I can’t. I– I– I’m so glad to be here. Hi. All right.

Carter: So good to see you out of that hospital.

Eric: Thanks.

Carter: Healthy.

Eric: Thank you. Ridge.

Ridge: Welcome home, Dad.

Deacon: All right, good.

Sheila: Okay.

Deacon: Date seems to be going well. She’s letting him hold her hand.

Sheila: She probably thinks she hit the jackpot. Handsome, wealthy man, like Bill. Poor, poor Poppy though. She doesn’t realize he is not what he seems.

Deacon: Poppy. Cute name.

Sheila: Yeah. Cute name, cute personality. I can– I can see why he’s interested.

Deacon: Poor Poppy. She has no idea what she’s in for.

Bill: Uh-oh, another one of your special mints. Don’t tell me you’re nervous.

Poppy: Should I be?

Bill: Not at all? I have very high hopes for us.

Brooke: I was so close to inviting everybody over to surprise you.

Donna: But then common sense won over and we decided not to overwhelm you.

Eric: It’s all right.

Ridge: You okay, Dad?

Eric: Yeah, I’m okay. I’m okay. It’s just– I, uh, I was never sure I was gonna be able to set foot in this house here.

Brooke: We weren’t sure about that either, but we are all so happy that you’re back home, Eric.

Carter: You never count out the great Eric Forrester. You’ve been like a father to me, Eric, and you believed in me. You, uh, you saw promise in me and I accomplished so many goals thanks to you. What’s most important is that you opened up your home and your family to me. You’ve shown me so much grace and forgiveness and for that, Eric, I am so grateful. And I’m glad I get to tell you that now, with you here. Because I wasn’t ready to lose you.

Bill: You know something I remember about you from the festival, besides how gorgeous you were? Was the way you made everything seem so carefree and magical. Now, here we are some -plus years later and you still have that same quality. To me, you haven’t changed a bit. Uh, except for the fact that you’ve raised your– your beautiful daughter, of course.

Sheila: Look at her. Her eyes are just glazing over. She’s probably falling for every single lie he’s telling her. Okay, what? All right. Okay, so the lies were easy to fall for.

Deacon: You– you’re not really helping your cause here. Cut some more limes. Yeah.

Poppy: Well, it’s very kind of you to say that I haven’t changed, but let’s face it, I’ve aged.

Bill: Oh, come on now. I mean, we’ve all aged. But the essence of you, your style, that smile. Yes, that– that exact smile right there. I can see you dancing in the moonlight, smiling at me. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure you were dancing to this.

Bill: Oh, you bet I have it. I could never forget those moves.

Poppy: Turn it down.

Bill: Oh, I’m gonna turn it up, if anything. In fact, I’m daring you. Huh? Double dare you. Let’s see you girl.

Bill: You are really Let’s see you girl.

Bill: You are really something, you know that?

Poppy: I’ve been told.

Bill: Transporting me back in time, just watching you moving so beautifully, gracefully, and effortlessly. What a surprise you are. A magical surprise when I– when I needed it most.

Eric: I’m sorry that Carter had to leave. I’m sorry. He said wonderful things.

Ridge: You made a huge impact on his life, obviously.

Brooke: On all of us.

Donna: Especially me. I mean, where would I even be without you? And we came a little too close to finding out.

Brooke: Carter said it the best. He wasn’t ready to lose you. None of us were. It just feels so good to have you here now and we get to spend more time with you.

Ridge: More time with the greatest man I know. We weren’t ready to say goodbye. Were you? You said you went to the other side? We haven’t talked about it. Did you want to stay?

Eric: Well, I– I– I’ll tell you, Ridge. Everybody fears death. Everybody’s afraid of it. I was just like everybody else. I was afraid to die. I was scared. God knows I was– I was scared. And then I went to this place, this– It’s a crossing place, crossing over place and I saw, I heard, uh… You know how people say that, um, they saw the light?

Donna: Yeah, of course.

Eric: I said I did. And– and hearing and seeing are the same thing in there. They’re not separate. You can hear the light and you can see the music and– and, uh, everything that I felt, I was part of it. Uh, It was coming through me. I saw your mother. She’s there. She’s… waiting for me And, um, I was relieved of, uh, things that I was feeling that were bad. My body felt fine. I– I was– I was free of all pain and ache and it just– It was– it was gonna be the perfect exit.

Ridge: Dad, I–

Eric: No, wait, I wanna– I wanna say this to you. And I wanna say that to you too. There’s nothing to be afraid of. It’s wonderful there. It’s a beautiful, beautiful place and– and as– as wonderful as life is here, just you wait. Just– just you wait. It’s– it’s full of love and light, love and light. And so, uh, I was ready. I was– I was going there. And now, I’m back here.

Ridge: Did I let you down? Did I make the wrong decision? Did you wanna go?
