Sheila drops by James' office and is concerned when James says he is having second thoughts about Maggie. James is worried about what's become of Maggie. Sheila sees Maggie as a threat to their marriage and lives. James thinks the restraining order imposed on Maggie was a mistake. James reassures Sheila that his utmost priority is she and Mary, but at the same time, he doesn't want to see Maggie get hurt.

Maggie continues her quest of digging into Sheila's past. She is determined to remind Sheila of the pain she has caused and is gathering evidence to support her claim. Maggie visits with Eric and pumps him for information about Sheila's behavior while he was married to her. Actually, Sheila was on her best behavior when we were married, Eric reports. Except there was one strange incident. When they were married and Sheila worked at Forrester, they had a housekeeper, Judy Johnson. Eric remembers coming home one day to find Judy had left without explanation. Maggie thinks Sheila was involved. Eric pulls Judy's insurance file and gives Maggie the only address he has for her. If there's any dirt about Sheila where Judy is concerned, Maggie is determined to find it.

Sally and Lorenzo are at the beauty parlor and dish about Grant and Macy's engagement. Romance is also in the air for Lorenzo, Sally informs. Lorenzo is still unsure about Jonny. There is a connection between them, but maybe it is just because of their experience with Rush. Lorenzo has a candlelight dinner planned with Jonny tonight to pursue any romantic feelings for him.

In Greenland, Rush is better, stronger. Amur wonders what Rush plans on doing now. They talk over dinner and Rush winds up giving Amur her first experience in love making. Afterwards, Rush packs some of her father's clothes and maps. He's leaving for Los Angeles. There's someone he has to see. Amur tries to stop him, and Rush pulls a knife!

Lorenzo arrives at Jonny's house. He welcomes her and says to prepare for an interesting evening...

Maggie wonders what this Judy person can tell her about Sheila that she doesn't already know. Maggie finds the apartment and knocks on the door. Ms Johnson opens the door but when Maggie introduces herself as a Forrester, Judy wants no part in Maggie.

Maggie is determined to find out what Sheila did to former Forrester employee, Judy Johnson. Judy doesn't want anything to do with Sheila for fear she might still carry out those threats Sheila made. Maggie knows Sheila forced Judy to leave her job, and begs her for help because of a child being involved.

Eric visits James to discuss his marriage with Sheila. James makes it clear that he is happy with his wife and baby. Sheila overhears Eric asks James if he loves Sheila. She is relieved when James declares his love for her. Eric warns James not to get caught in Sheila's spell like he did. She has a dark side, and although it might be in remission now, one day it will rear its ugly head.

Lorenzo is clearly over dressed for what Jonny had in mind. She's got on a gorgeous dress while he is in his bathrobe. There's not even a chair to sit down on in Jonny's house. After being interrupted twice by Lorenzo's cell phone, Jonny takes the battery out. Lorenzo offers to leave since it is obvious they had different plans for the night, but Jonny convinces her to stay. They had dinner at her place, now it is time for dinner at his. First, though, Jonny wants Lorenzo to take off her dress...

In Greenland, Rush hitches a ride with a trucker who is going to a shipping port. There, the trucker will unload the huskies she is carrying who are going to the USA. After the truck arrives at it's destination, the dogs are unloaded, but the woman can't find Rush. He's got himself in a dog cage bound for the USA.

Judy tells Maggie of her run in with Sheila. Judy never did trust Sheila and because of that, had her checked out. Somehow though, Sheila knew about Judy's family, especially her sister, who lived alone. When Judy started calling the police to expose Sheila's Genoa City past, Sheila threatens to harm her sister, saying accidents happen. Judy couldn't bear the thought of harm coming to her sister so she left Forrester without a word to anyone, not even Eric. Maggie tells Judy of her plan to put Sheila back in a mental hospital. Judy agrees to bring Sheila to her knees.

Eric doesn't believe Sheila has changed. Sheila says she can't change the past but can only concentrate on being a good wife and mother. Someday, your past will catch up with you, Eric warns. Then, Sheila will be held accountable for her past deeds.

Thursday, February 19, 1998

Brooke is complaining to Thorne about his mother. How can she convince Stephanie that Ridge is happy with her? She acts surprised when she tells Thorne that Stephanie accused her of lying about being pregnant. She is even convinced that you, Taylor and I are hiding something from Ridge!

Thorne hopes she set his mother straight. But don't worry, it isn't how my mother sees it that counts, but the way Ridge sees things. He doesn't think Taylor will ever tell Ridge about Thomas. He is almost convinced that Taylor will never come back to Los Angeles.

Dressed in robes, John is leading Lorenzo through a meditation/deep relaxation session. "Your power is in the present," he tells her. "The present is all we have."

After coming out of it, Lorenzo tells him that she feels terrific. This is the most relaxed she has ever been, thanks to him.

On the freighter, a girl comes down to check on the dogs in the cargo space. Just before she gets to the cage that contains Rush and one of the dogs, she is called back up on deck. After she leaves, Rush lets himself out of the cage and hides in the shadows. "I'm going back to the USA," he says. "I'm coming back for you, Lorenzo."

Jonny serves Lorenzo a supper of exotic vegetables. She tells him that she is a meat-eater, but the vegetables are good. There is hope for you yet, he tells her.

Lorenzo tells him that she owes him an apology. She was rude and unforgivable from the moment she walked in the front door. He tells her it was because she was living that hurried existence, but now she is living in the present. "I'm real," Jonny tells her. "A little rough around the edges, but real."

"Thank God you are nothing like your brother," Lorenzo tells him.

At this, Jonny gets somewhat upset and walks out onto the balcony. It is still hard to talk about him, he tells Lorenzo. I keep wondering why he turned out that way. Was it something I could have done that would have made a difference?

"You are not responsible for him," Lorenzo tells him. "That is all in the past. Rush is gone. I feel so safe with you; you have done so much for me. I would like to return the favor." She reaches up and kisses him.

On the freighter, the woman is back to feed the dogs. Rush watches from the shadows. He moves suddenly and something is knocked over, making a loud noise. "Who is there?" The woman exclaims. Quickly, she puts the dog back into his cage and leaves the hold. Hiding himself under the stairs, Rush says, "I'm coming back, Lorenzo. It is only a matter of days and we will be together, this time forever."

Dressed in a bathrobe, Ridge meets Brooke at the bedroom door. "I am taking you IN to dinner," he tells her. She comes into the bedroom to find it alight with candles and incense. "How did you know I needed this?" she asked.

Ridge is so sorry for the way his mother has treated Brooke. Unfortunately, she is a part of his family, but not for long unless she has a serious attitude adjustment. You are more important than anyone, he tells her.

Sitting her on the bed, Ridge begins to take off her stockings and kiss her on the legs. Getting the Japanese food, he climbs into bed beside her and turns on the television set. They are watching the winter games because he didn't get to take her to Nagano as he promised. They begin to feed each other.

Thorne answers his phone to find it is Taylor calling. She is packing to return home tonight. Have you made a decision? He asks. She has, but she won't tell him what it is until she gets to town. After hanging up, Thorne says, "I hope you decide to be with me, Taylor. If not Brooke and Ridge's marriage may be about to end.

"Tonight I come home to begin my new life," Taylor says as she closes her suitcase.

Friday, February 20, 1998

Looking at Taylor's picture, Thorne says that they will know soon whom she will spend her life with. Stephanie comes to visit. She is trying to figure out what Thorne and Brooke are keeping secret. Thorne tells her that she is paranoid.

Stephanie tells Thorne that she is concerned about him. She loves him and worries about him. He chose Brooke's side and he knows how dangerous that can be. Thorne warns her that if she doesn't stop she will lose everyone she loves. He mentions that he knows about her confrontation with Brooke and Ridge the night before. How could she treat Brooke so badly?

Brooke admits to Ridge that she enjoyed it when he told his mother off. Ridge says that she had it coming, but he doesn't think he got through to her. Brooke says she wants to change the subject and she knows how to do it. She leaves the room.

Rick, the contractor, is getting ready to leave Sheila's house. She tells him that she appreciates all the overtime he has put in. She and James are looking forward to the extra space. He promises that all the work will be finished as she requested, but it will take some time yet. He wonders if James is there; he wants to see if he is pleased with the work. Sheila admits that she doesn't know where James is.

Maggie is reminding herself to pack the cell phone and video when James stops by. He has been worried about her, he says. Are you just worried, asks Maggie, or is there more to it?

When Maggie asks if he misses making love to her, he decides he has made a mistake and starts to leave. She calls him back and asks about the baby.

"Do you really want to know how I am?" Maggie asks. "What if I told you that I can't eat, can't sleep. I write you letter after letter that I'll never mail telling you of my regrets. I still buy your favorite tea. I still sleep on my side of the bed and wake up reaching for you, all the time knowing you aren't coming back."

"I'm sorry you are hurting," James tells her. "I do care about you."

"I care about you and that is why I am going to warn you," Maggie tells him. When he protests, she stops him. "I am not coming after Sheila. But you can tell her that her past is her worse enemy---not me. It will come back to haunt her---maybe sooner than she thinks."

Brooke comes back in looking very sexy in a new outfit. She tells Ridge that she has something special for every occasion. You have no idea how much I love you, she tells him. Prove it! He orders.

Before Nick can get out the door, his beeper goes off. He asks to use the phone. When he dials, Maggie answers and wonders where he is; it is almost time. He tells her he has been taking care of things and that person---here looking at Sheila across the room---doesn't suspect a thing.

Stephanie says that Brooke only told him her side of the story, but Thorne says that Brooke has no reason to lie to him. Brooke doesn't want to come between her and Ridge. Why do you go against your brother? Stephanie asks, puzzled.

Stephanie asks what Taylor wanted to tell Ridge, but Thorne tells her he will not tell her. She should begin to worry about her relationship with her other children. She has alienated almost all of them. If she isn't careful, Ridge will also leave her.

Stephanie promises that she---and Ridge---will find out what they are hiding. "You have gone against the family," she tells him, "and the only person who is going to get hurt, besides Brooke, is you." She then leaves.

Ridge makes love to Brooke. After it is over, Brooke says that nothing could ever top that. We have our entire lives to try, Ridge says. He is never going to let her go away from him again. Brooke says that the only thing to make it more perfect is a baby.

Ridge goes into the bathroom just as the phone rings. It is Thorne warning her that Taylor will be home. However, Brooke won't let him talk. She tells him that Taylor will never come back to LA. She hurriedly says goodbye and hangs up when Ridge returns.

Rick comes to Maggie's house. Maggie says the others are on their way. She has a list of things that they are going to do.

You think I am horrible for doing this, don't you? She asks. He tells her that it means nothing to him as long as he is being paid. She begins to tell him what a horrible person Sheila is. "It is time she finds out she cannot just walk away without paying the price." Maggie says.

Ridge says there is champagne downstairs. When he starts down to get it, she tells him that she will do it. Once she is downstairs, there is a knock at the door. Opening the door, she finds Taylor standing there holding her little baby.
