On the Shady Marlin, Bridget apologized to Nick for lying that she had terminated her pregnancy. Bridget explained that she lied after she saw he and Brooke together on the night she was about to tell him that she was pregnant. Bridget told Nick that she wanted to be sure that Nick loved her and not Brooke. Bridget understood now that what she had seen was just friendship between Nick and Brooke. Bridget admitted that she had been very insecure which led her to test Nick about his feelings for her. Nick was furious with Bridget for having tested him and lied to him about the termination of her pregnancy. Bridget begged Nick to forgive her for lying and to resume their relationship. Nick demanded that they go to Brooke's immediately to inform her of what Bridget had done.
Meanwhile, Eric went to Brooke's house to confront her about rumors of a relationship between her and Nick. Brooke responded by telling Eric that Bridget had terminated her pregnancy because she misread what she saw. Brooke then explained that the pregnancy termination was for the best, because it made Brooke and Nick realize that they have always loved one another. Eric was appalled with Brooke to even think about betraying Bridget a second time. Eric warned Brooke that Bridget could not withstand another betrayal by Brooke.
Eric left and Bridget and Nick arrived at Brooke's. Bridget tried to elicit an apology from Brooke for terminating her pregnancy. Bridget then told Brooke that she did not terminate her pregnancy that it was only a test to see if Nick and Brooke would start a relationship if she were not pregnant. Brooke was emotionally overwhelmed when Bridget told her there was no termination of her pregnancy. Unbeknownst to Bridget, Brooke was distraught because this meant that she would lose Nick!
