Brooke, trying to enjoy her evening with Eric, is forced to ask him to get rid of Stephanie or she will go.
Ridge tells Taylor that his mother has done some horrible things but even she doesn't deserve this. Taylor is very concerned, that even though Stephanie went through this once before, this time she was humiliated again and it could kill her.
Nick is at Stephanie's when she arrives home. He asks her how she is and tells her that he told her to keep her mouth shut, so that no one else would get hurt. He tells her that most people would say that she is getting exactly what she deserves.
Brooke and Eric talk now that Stephanie is gone. He tells her that he feels blessed because he not only had one chance of being with Brooke but two times in his lifetime. Brooke and Eric toast to their future, and Brooke tells him to Bridget's future also. She wants to call Bridget but Eric doesn't think that calling her on their wedding night would help the situation. Eric tells Brooke to give Bridget some time to let everything sink in before she contacts her.
Stephanie tells Nick that it must be killing him knowing that Brooke is sleeping with another man, when you are the man that she loves. Stephanie tells Nick that this was all his fault. Brooke is in love with him, and he needs to do something right now, to stop this whole thing. Nick asks Stephanie where they are, and she tells him that they are at the beach house. He leaves.
Brooke is telling Eric that she thought she was ready to do this, but she's not. He tells her not to worry, there will be other nights. She comments that it could take some time. She says that "here she is in love with another man, and all she wants to do is make the man that she's with, happy. She wants it right for him because she made a promise to him. She steps out on the terrace for some fresh air and Nick arrives.
Ridge tells Taylor that there is nothing more he can do for Brooke. He's through with her. Taylor cries and rushes into Ridge's arms. Ridge tells Taylor that he is over Brooke. He says that his dad is going to have another broken heart and his mother is is going to be humiliated all over again.
Stephanie calls Eric and when he answers the phone, she assumes that he and Brooke have consummated their marriage. Eric reminds her that he and Brooke made a commitment to save Bridget's marriage. She tells Eric that his marriage to Brooke is going to end soon, maybe sooner than he thinks.
Nick asks Brooke, "Where is Eric?" She tells him in the bedroom. Nick is sure that they have all ready done something until Brooke tells him that she couldn't. Nick uses that as a statement to Brooke that that should show her, the marriage wasn't meant to be. Brooke tells Nick that Bridget is carrying his child, and he tells her that there has to be another solution. They embrace, and Eric calls out to Brooke. She leaves him standing alone and goes to Eric.
