Tuesday (July 7)

Whip (Rick Hearst) clashes with Deacon (Sean Kanan), explaining that there is no way that Brooke would ever betray her daughter Bridget (Finnigan) now that he must forget that Brooke’s baby is really his. Meanwhile, Bridget, not realizing that her mother is pregnant with her husband’s baby, throws her a baby shower. Taylor (Hunter Tylo), Kristen (Tracy Lindsey Melchior), and Eric (Courtnee Draper) attend, as well as Meagan (Meave Quinlan) and Stephanie – both of whom know the truth about Brooke’s secret. After the shower is over, Meagan assures Whip that Deacon won’t do anything to jeopardize his relationship with Bridget while Deacon heads over to Brooke’s house to talk to her about the baby. Not realizing that Bridget is downstairs and can hear them on the baby monitor, Deacon professes his love for Brooke. Original airdate: June 14, 2002.

Wednesday (July 8)

Whip is surprised to learn that Deacon has agree to stay away from Brooke by taking Bridget (Finnigan) on a publicity tour of the Forrester Creations Ambrosia line. Not realizing that his wife heard him profess his love to her mother over the baby monitor, Deacon tells Whip that he made the decision because of the close call. Whip assures Deacon that the baby will be surrounded by nothing but love from the day he or she is born. Meanwhile, Stephanie sits outside the Big Bear cabin in her car while Bridget goes inside to confront her mother over her egregious betrayal. In a heartbreaking moment, an angry Bridget demands that Brooke tell her how many times she and Deacon were together. Brooke attempts to convince Bridget how much she loves her, but Bridget insists that Brooke threw her away. Bridget tells Brooke that she made her choice, and choices have consequences. Brooke grabs Bridget’s wrist begging her to give her another chance. Stephanie enters the cabin and orders Brooke to let Bridget go. When Bridget leaves, Brooke drops to the floor and tells Stephanie that she’s going into labour. Original airdate: June 28, 2002.

Vinny (Joe LoCicero) tries to hide his anxiety about Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) plan as he makes small talk with Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor), Quinn (Rena Sofer), and Eric. He asks Thomas to stop the madness and cancel the ceremony. Alone, before the ceremony, Hope (Annika Noelle) asks Douglas (Henry Samiri) to trust her, telling the child that she will make sure that she is always his mother. Unseen, Thomas listens to part of the conversation and is confident that he and Hope will be married by the end of the day. Douglas watches his world fall apart as the Thomas and Zoe’s (Kiara Barnes) wedding begins. Douglas has a melt-down and runs upstairs. Hope follows him, and Zoe urges Thomas to continue with the wedding. Nervous and trying to stall, Thomas continues with his vows.
