Tuesday, Dec 5: Today on Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy doesn’t know if she can keep Eric’s condition silent, and Donna insists to her sisters that they need to have the party tonight.

Monday’s Early B&B recap: Zende was crushed to learn Eric is dying, and Eric came to and refused Donna’s pleas to ditch the party.

At Eric’s, Katie and Brooke are shocked when Donna tells them Eric is still determined to go ahead with the party.

It will be one last soiree in the house where he has had so many parties and events.

He’s not scared to move on to the big crystal palace in the sky, but right now he wants to reflect on his experiences.
