B&B column: How Bill could ruin the wedding
Back at Forrester, Katie and Eric notice the office is almost empty.
She assumes he’s going to the wedding.
He’s sure this can’t be an easy day for her.
She is sure that he knows that her sister is the true love of Ridge’s life.
Eric admires Taylor but he agrees with Katie.
She wonders how he can support this marriage if he knows it’s not really the end for Ridge and Brooke.
Brooke paces in her living room looking at a wedding photo until Bill interrupts.
He knows about the wedding and notes Ridge didn’t waste any time.
She thought her marriage would last forever last time.
Bill says all marriages start that way.
He just wants to support her and tells her nothing is going to stop Ridge from marrying Taylor.
He’s sure it’s hard for her to think about a life without Ridge, but he assures her that turning this page will present her with all sorts of opportunities.
Bill loves her and wants to show her true commitment, proving that he can make her happier than Ridge ever could.
She insists the vows she made today mean as much as they ever did.
He points out they clearly don’t mean so much to Ridge. Apparently, they were just words.
Carter arrives outside and eavesdrops as Bill tells Brooke that he will always love her.
He may have married her sister, but Brooke turns him on to life more and never tried to change him.
He asks her to give him the chance to have a future.
“You are the woman I want, not Katie,” he says.
