Wednesday, Dec 20: Today on Bold and the Beautiful, Finn and Bridget update the family on no news, RJ and Steffy visit their grandfather, and Zende vents to Luna.

Tuesday’s Early B&B recap: Zende told Ridge he needs to be the one to finish Eric’s final collection since RJ is too green.

In the Forrester Creations office, Zende tells Ridge that he doesn’t want to have to think about what could happen to Eric.

He just wants to work and suggests that they work together to finish Eric’s last collection.

He insists that RJ is not ready for the kind of work that this demands.

Zende knows he wants to work with his son but this needs seasoned professionals.

Ridge knows how talented he is but RJ started this and needs to finish it.

They can use his help.

Luna assures Zende that his family isn’t trying to shut him out.

He’s sure they aren’t conscious of it, but it’s getting hard to ignore.

She tells him that Ridge wants to finish the line with RJ. He knows but he says RJ is a little kid compared to him.

He wanted to use his skill and talent to honor his grandfather, but he’s not the chosen one. He’s not Ridge Jr.

Luna can see he’s frustrated and understands, putting her hand on his shoulder.
