The Bold and the Beautiful
What happened during the week of November 5, 2012
Hope set Caroline straight about trying to play Rick and Thomas against each other, and then Hope sent Rick the picture of Caroline and Thomas' embrace. When Rick asked Caroline where he stood with her, she revealed that she loved him. Brooke splashed cold water on Bill, who awakened with a start and barked that he was simply exhausted, not suicidal as Brooke had assumed. Liam and Steffy went parasailing and then babysat Will while Bill and Brooke took a hot air balloon ride that an unknown person in Los Angeles had booked. The foursome and Will returned home the day of Stephanie's party. Brooke was anxious about seeing Ridge at the event, so Bill offered to accompany her there for moral support. Katie and Taylor continued their rigorous debate about Katie's postpartum depression, to no avail. When Katie tried to pump Taylor for information about Brooke and Bill's Aspen trip, Taylor refused to give it unless she received Katie's callback number first. After Steffy and Liam told Taylor about the mysterious balloon ride reservation, Taylor promptly called Katie to say that her plans to unite Brooke and Bill wouldn't work, and Katie needed to return home. Kristen and Felicia arrived at the Forrester mansion, and Stephanie revealed that she and Eric were going away after the party. Stephanie was suspicious of Pam and Eric's behavior during the party preparations. Eric admitted that he'd cancelled Stephanie's chamber music and caterer because he was doing things his way that evening.

Alice confronted Monica with A.J.'s passport that had been issued in the name of Crane Tolliver after A.J.'s supposed death.
