At Bill's house, preparations were underway for Bill and Brooke's wedding. Caterers and florists scurried around the house, and Wyatt showed up. Bill asked him to be his best man. Bill told Wyatt that he had known the situation with Steffy had to be difficult for Wyatt. Bill wanted to focus on the positive for the day. Wyatt agreed, and he agreed to be Bill's best man.
At Brooke's, she eyed her engagement ring and took a call from Ridge on her cell phone. Brooke wondered if Ridge wanted a last-minute invitation to the wedding. Ridge said he had wondered if the wedding was still on. Brooke said it was. She wanted Ridge to understand that she wanted to marry Bill. Ridge wanted to get rid of Quinn and needed Bill's shares to do it.
Ridge had wished there was another way to get Bill's stock without Brooke marrying Bill. Brooke paused because R.J. had entered and interrupted. Brooke told Ridge she had to leave. R.J. tried to convince Brooke not to marry Spencer.
Brooke insisted that she really loved Bill. R.J. quizzed Brooke about her feelings for Ridge, and Brooke admitted she and Ridge would always love one another, but she planned to marry Bill. "Just give Bill a chance," Brooke advised. R.J. insisted that Bill was the last person Ridge would ever want her to marry.
Brooke wanted R.J. to reconsider attending the wedding. He refused. Donna showed up and greeted Brooke and R.J. with "Happy wedding day!" R.J. did not look happy, and Donna said she felt he had interrupted something. R.J. wanted Donna to persuade Brooke not to marry Bill. "Bill Spencer?" You're making a mistake," R.J. said. He left, and Brooke looked pensive.
Donna claimed R.J. was just a moody teenager and would get over it. She offered to help Brooke get ready at home rather than at Bill's, but Brooke declined. She worried that R.J. was too unhappy. Seeing her in a wedding dress wouldn't help. Donna worried that it was bad luck to see the groom before the wedding, but Brooke scoffed and said she didn't believe in that superstition.
At Forrester, Ridge sat in his office, and Rick entered. Ridge wondered if Rick had planned to attend the wedding. Rick explained that Brooke had said it was an intimate ceremony, and he planned to avoid it. "What's going on in that head of yours?" Rick asked. He wondered if Ridge had planned to crash another of Brooke's weddings. Ridge was surprised that Rick objected to Bill.
Rick admitted that he hated Bill, and he never liked Ridge, but Ridge was the better choice for his mother because Ridge and Brooke had loved each other most of their adult lives. Rick wondered how Ridge could allow Brooke to marry a man he despised.
Ridge said he was worried about the company. He couldn't let anything happen to it. They needed the shares to stop Quinn.
Rick countered that Brooke's marriage could last for a lifetime, but Ridge scoffed that it would not last that long. Rick argued that Brooke loved Bill. He wondered if Ridge was willing to accept that Brooke could be lost forever to him. "I wouldn't count on it imploding," Rick said.
R.J. entered and wondered why no one was stopping Brooke. Ridge said that R.J. didn't understand that Brooke wanted to marry Bill. R.J. maintained it was a catastrophe. Ridge understood he was frustrated. "You have to stop this wedding before it's too late," R.J. demanded.
At Bill's, Wyatt wondered if Bill had a backup best man if Wyatt had said no, and Bill said that Justin would have stepped in. Wyatt noted that Bill seemed very calm. He wondered where Alison was, and Bill said she was taking care of last-minute details and Justin was as well. Bill maintained that everything was under control. He couldn't wait to wake up With Brooke as his wife. Wyatt noted that his father would have everything, and he deserved it.
Alison and Justin arrived, and everyone gushed that Alison looked beautiful. She said the minister was on his way. She left to check on the caterers. Wyatt and Justin marveled that Bill seemed calm. Bill joked that he was "super cool."
Donna arrived and announced that the bride had also arrived. Alison returned and worried that it was bad luck to see the bride before the wedding. Bill scoffed. Bill told Brooke that she looked radiant. Brooke said he was romantic, and Donna and Justin exchanged some romantic looks after Donna reminded him that he had been very romantic during their wedding. Everyone left Brooke and Bill alone, and the couple agreed to sign the marriage license before the minister left. They agreed that after all they had been through, it had all been worth it. They kissed.
