JANUARY 1998
January 5 to 9, 1998
Brooke moved up the wedding from 2:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. and neglected to tell Taylor and Thorne. Taylor and Thorne rushed toward Brooke's house to stop the wedding, but early labor stopped them only blocks away. Thorne delivered Taylor's baby boy. The wedding took place, and the new Forresters left for a honeymoon in Italy. Dr. Martin Guthrie introduced himself to James and began to talk about Sheila. Unknown to James, who offered him a scotch, Martin was an alcoholic. He got drunk and was about to spill the beans when Mike and Maggie arrived and rushed him out of the bar.
January 12 to 16, 1998
Eric and Lauren, separately, began showing signs of posttraumatic stress disorder. Maggie continued wearing away at James's resistance. James finally said he would give Sheila one more day to call, and if she didn't, he would move with the baby back to her house. Taylor worried about who to list as her baby's father on the birth certificate. In the shower, Mike was suddenly attacked by a "knife" wielded by an old woman -- it was Marty dressed in a Ma Bates costume. Sheila finally broke free, but Mike and Maggie were chasing her -- and she didn't know where she was.
January 19 to 23, 1998
Thorne called Brooke and told her that Taylor had given birth to a baby boy. Suddenly, Brooke "miscarried." Taylor named the baby Thomas Hamilton Forrester, but did not list a father's name on the birth certificate. Thorne had a fit. Lauren met face-to-face with "Rush," who tried to convince her that he was Johnny, Rush's twin brother. Amber made moves on Rick. Maggie talked James into going to Scotland that night. After agreeing, James went to Mannequins, where he saw Marty. He followed him to see if he could find Sheila. Ridge met face-to-face with Taylor's baby.
January 26 to 30, 1998
After "coming on" to Rick, Amber waited at Insomnia until he finally came through for her -- she got a live-in offer from the Forresters. Much to Brooke's dismay, Taylor stopped by with her son and gave him to Ridge to hold. Brooke and Taylor both noticed an instant bond form. Brooke later considered telling Ridge the truth about Thomas. Lauren and Eric set a trap for "Rush," but were surprised at the outcome: Johnny was telling the truth; he was Rush's twin brother. James rescued Sheila from the Psycho mansion and took her home, much to Maggie's astonishment. Later, the police dragged Maggie away in handcuffs, with her screaming, "Please James, don't let them do this to me!"

She and Rick approached the pawnshop owner and bought back the bracelet.

After apparently killing Amur, Rush stowed away on a freighter bound for the United States. Ridge gave Brooke a romantic evening, which was interrupted by Taylor's arrival. Taylor lied to Brooke about telling Ridge about Thomas. Taylor told Thorne that she was telling Ridge about the baby as soon as possible. After Thorne left in a huff, Stephanie stopped over, and Taylor told her about Thomas' parentage. James tried to reach Maggie, but he wasn't offering what she wanted. Maggie went ahead with her plan to take Sheila down. Thanks to the construction man, Maggie, Lauren, and Judy were able to "haunt" Sheila while she was alone in her home.
