In the hall, Lauren Fenmore and Esther Valentine (Tracey Bregman & Kate Linder) arrive and Esther’s so grateful that she took her.

Lauren knows she’s always wanted a Forrester Original. Luna greets them and Esther talks about how magical her flight was. “I mean flying in the clouds, champagne in hand and arriving in Los Angeles?”

She can’t believe she’s about to meet the Eric Forrester and wear a gown just like Mrs. Chancellor used to wear.

In the room where the runway is, Charlie’s on a call with Pammy, begging her to come to the fashion show.

She’s got to bake lemon bars.

He misses her but by the time he gets the words out, she’s hung up.

“I’m such a loser when it comes to love,” he says, sitting down sadly.

At home, Donna tells Katie that Eric’s insistent of living while he’s still alive.

Katie looks over the fashions.

Donna recaps her last conversations with Eric before the diagnosis and prognosis that he’d be dead in six months.

Donna knows he’s older but still thought they had more time.

Katie hugs her and suggests she savor the time they have. Donna tears up.

She’ll try but she’s so afraid for her husband.

Lauren greets Eric with Luna and he introduces RJ.

She hopes he’s heard good things about her. RJ says, “Um….” and Eric tells the kids to go.

He thinks Lauren’s as beautiful as ever.

She’s glad he invited her. He calls this his best line ever, his grand finale, making Lauren curious.

She asks why he’s not in his office and he calls it a situation he hopes to resolve.
