Whip is wondering where Brooke could be. Megan tells him not to worry; Bridget and Brooke are probably just cleaning up. She tells him how great the shower went and how even Stephanie seemed proud of Brooke. Whip begins to relax, but Megan warns him not to get too sure of himself he is not out of the woods yet. Whip is confused stating she just mentioned how great things went. Megan tells him that she just doesn't want him to be too confident; Brooke still loves Deacon. Whip assures her that they are in the home stretch, unaware of what Bridget is just about to overhear. Not realizing the baby monitor is on; Brooke and Deacon are discussing their turbulent relationship. She states that she cannot let this marriage fail, she must protect Bridget. Bridget who is confused continues to listen. They discuss their relationship in a very roundabout way, not leaving many answers for Bridget. Bridget continues to try to make sense of what they are saying, rationalizing that they are making up after an argument. She begins to get antsy as Deacon and Brooke start to reveal more about their history. Just then Deacon starts to talk about the night they had sex and how it was the most wonderful night of his life. Brooke who does not disagree states that he was there when she needed someone the most. Bridget reels from this development, but continues to listen. Bridget also overhears that Deacon is only staying with her out of loyalty, but his heart lies with Brooke. Deacon vows that Bridget must never find out about them and Brooke also states that she can't find out that she is carrying Deacon's child. Bridget crumbles to the floor with those words echoing in her head.
As she listened to Brooke and Deacon talking via the baby monitor, Bridget was becoming more traumatized quickly. She heard Deacon tell Brooke "You're going to raise my child with Whip and I'm going to stay with Bridget." Bridget was heartbroken and shocked by everything she heard Brooke and Deacon say. Bridget could not stand to listen to them any longer, so Bridget left the house. Bridget was so upset that she was not completely coherent. She fled to Rick and Amber's old apartment which is next door to Eric's house. Bridget sat in the dark and remembered all of Brooke's past remarks about how much she loved Bridget.
Meanwhile, Kristen was next door talking to Eric. Eric thanked her for befriending Amber. Kristen did not feel as though it were a big deal, because she's family. Kristen told Eric she is trying to understand Ridge's behavior and his view of being voted out of Forrester Creations. When Eric began to blame Massimo for the family rift, Kristen questioned Eric about why he isn't angry with Brooke for changing the focus of Forrester Creations? Eric said very bluntly he could not be angry with the mother of his children because she has made them so happy.
At Forrester Creations, Whip made dinner reservations to celebrate he and Brooke's one month wedding anniversary. Stephanie came to his office looking for Deacon. He assured Stephanie that he and Brooke are making the best of the situation. He knows that both Deacon and Brooke are committed to not letting Bridget find out that Deacon is the father of Brooke's baby. Stephanie reminded him that not only would Bridget's world fall apart if the secret were out, Whip's world would also! When Deacon returned to the office, Stephanie asked him if he had been alone with Brooke after the guests left the baby shower? She told him he was a fool for jeopardizing his marriage to Bridget and he's never really appreciate her until he lost her. Deacon admitted it will be nearly impossible to keep the secret from Bridget. He reminded Stephanie that Brooke intended to have the secret kept.
At home, Brooke thanked Erica for her assistance. She told Erica that the baby monitor would not be needed yet and asked her to put it with the other shower gifts. Brooke did not realize that Bridget had been able to hear her conversation with Deacon via the baby monitor.
Heartbroken and hysterical, Bridget sat by herself and continued to think back about things that Brooke had mentioned to her. She felt guilty for not and realizing what Brooke and Deacon had done. When Eric spotted Bridget's car, he came inside. Bridget told Eric that she wanted to be alone. He noticed that Bridget was upset. When Eric approached her, Bridget freaked out and told him to get away from her!
When Eric arrives to the guesthouse, Bridget sends him away. He goes home and calls Stephanie concerned that something is wrong with Bridget. He tells Stephanie that Bridget won't speak to him, and that she was even more upset when he suggested calling Brooke. He hopes that it is not something that Deacon has done. Stephanie goes to talk to Bridget, hoping she hasn't found out the secret.
Meanwhile, Brooke is still enjoying all the gifts from the baby shower. She calls Bridget and leaves a voice mail thanking her again for the shower and tells her how happy she is that Bridget and Deacon will be part of this baby's life. Erica comes into the room and Brooke tells her about the special bond between mother and child. Erica mentions that she saw Bridget there after the shower while Brooke was upstairs showing Deacon the nursery.
Whip comes home and wants to take a shower and be romantic with Brooke until he hears Erica upstairs with Little Eric on the baby monitor. Brooke tells Whip that Deacon came over after the shower looking for Bridget. She assures Whip that nothing happened and that they had a nice conversation about keeping the secret. Brooke feels that Deacon is accepting that Whip will be the one to raise their baby. Whip mentions that he saw Deacon at Forrester after the shower and he wasn't with Bridget. Brooke wonders where Bridget could be.
Stephanie goes to see Bridget in the guesthouse. As she is knocking at the door, asking to come in, Bridget remembers overhearing a conversation about keeping the secret between them and Stephanie. She realizes that Stephanie knows that Brooke and Deacon have been having an affair. She lets Stephanie in, furious that Stephanie always told her not to worry about the doubts she had about Deacon. Bridget admits that Stephanie was right, that Brooke is a whore, then collapses, crying in Stephanie's arms.
Brooke calls Forrester, looking for Bridget. Meagan tells her how nice the baby shower was and they talk about the special relationship Brooke and Bridget have. After they hang up, Brooke decides that Bridget must have gone to the beach or be taking a nap since she is not answering her phone. Brooke lies back on the couch to rest, stroking her stomach. As she closes her eyes, she hears Whip talking to Erica in the nursery upstairs on the baby monitor. Her eyes open as she realizes Bridget could have overheard her and Deacon talking before about the baby.
Stephanie confirms that Brooke and Deacon had an affair and that Deacon says he's in love with Brooke. She nods when Bridget asks if the baby her mother is carrying is Deacon's. Stephanie comforts Bridget while she cries.
Bridget felt that Stephanie helped Brooke and Deacon to deceive her. Stephanie admitted she did. However, she pointed out that when she had found out about Brooke and Deacon, it was all over with. Bridget continued to accuse Stephanie of lying to her. Stephanie tried to point out that she was trying to protect Bridget from being hurt; she was not trying to deceive her.
At home, Brooke discovered that the baby monitor was left on in the living room. Brooke was amazed that she could hear all of Whip and Erica's conversation in the nursery. Brooke began to worry that the baby monitor may have been on when Bridget had stopped back at the house. Erica confirmed to Whip and Brooke that the baby monitor had been on for a long time, but that she and Little Eric had been at the pool. Erica also confirmed that Bridget had stopped by, and that she had been in the living room. Brooke realized that if Bridget was in the living room, she heard all of her and Deacon's conversation. Bridget then would be aware that Brooke and Deacon are in love and that he is the father of her baby. Brooke felt as if her worst nightmare would be coming true. Whip tried to assure her that everything would be okay.
At home, Deacon attempted to cook Cornish Hens for Bridget. This was the first dinner she ever prepared for him. Deacon asked Megan to assist him in preparation of the dinner. He told Megan that he had come to terms with the fact that Brooke had made the right decision to not tell Bridget the truth. He also had accepted the fact that he and Brooke would never be together. Deacon knew he was the only one who could make Brooke's daughter happy and he intended to do that. Megan encouraged him to focus on Bridget and perhaps they too could be very happy together.
Meanwhile Stephanie tried to calm down Bridget. She tried to convince her that Brooke really does love her. Bridget would not accept anything Stephanie was saying. All Bridget felt is if Brooke could do this to her, she never loved her at all. Bridget told Stephanie she has the image of Brooke and Deacon making love stuck in her mind. Stephanie reminded Bridget that Brooke is not the only one responsible. Bridget revealed she was very confused about everyone-Deacon had lied to her and Brooke was the other woman. Bridget felt she would never be able to forget or stop hurting over Brooke and Deacon's betrayal. Stephanie tried to encourage her to move on. Stephanie offered to take Bridget away from Brooke, and to be Bridget's mother if she wishes her to.
Whip rebukes Brooke for speaking carelessly with Deacon while the baby monitor was on. They dial and redial phone numbers, but they are unable to track down Bridget. Eric tells Brooke that Bridget is upset and refusing to speak to her mother. He reveals that Bridget was talking to Stephanie when he left, and Brooke leaves to look for her daughter. Whip accuses Deacon of destroying Bridget and orders him to stay away from her and her mother. Stephanie urges Bridget to calm down before she confronts Brooke, but Bridget insists that her feelings won't change. She remembers talking with Deacon at the hospital, when he asked what she had to lose by staying with him.
