JANUARY 2001
January 1 to 5, 2001
Morgan begged to see her newborn son until a sorrowful doctor gently told her he had died. Confused and angry, Taylor asked Ridge to leave. Stephanie tried to offer Morgan her condolences, but Morgan refused to hear them. Brooke and Thorne broke the news to Eric that they were engaged again. Caroline's ghost tried to console a mournful and distraught Ridge.
January 8 to 12, 2001
Worried that Taylor might throw in the towel on her marriage too quickly, Taylor's father, Jack, paid her a visit. After promising each other a new life of total honesty, Ridge and Taylor made plans to return to St. Thomas to renew their wedding vows. Brooke pleaded with Stephanie to call a truce over the feud between them and bless her wedding to Thorne. Rick, Amber, and Nathan, the Forrester family lawyer, made another attempt at getting Little Eric away from Deacon.
January 15 to 19, 2001
Bridget tried to convince Stephanie that she should go to Brooke's wedding -- if not for Thorne or Brooke's sake, then for hers. The Forresters and the Logans reunited to celebrate the marriage of Thorne and Brooke. Minutes before the wedding, Ridge and Stephanie decided to put aside their differences with the marriage and participate in the ceremony. Clarke and Darla tried to comfort Sally after reading the wedding announcement. Taylor was delayed in getting to the plane to meet her family when she was locked in Ridge's office with Morgan. Deacon revealed, to Amber, the real reason why he didn't want to give Little Eric back.
January 22 to 26, 2001
Reminiscent of their first trip to St. Thomas, Ridge sent Taylor on a treasure hunt. Feeling threatened by Amber's presence around Deacon, Carmen took Little Eric up to the roof in hopes of solving all of her problems. Eric fired Morgan. Worried that Kimberly was grieving for the loss of her sister alone, Sally invited Kimberly to move in with her and C.J. In an attempt to push Amber off the roof, Carmen tripped and fell off the roof.
January 29 to February 2, 2001
Amber persuaded Deacon to let her take Little Eric home with her for the night. Rick was overjoyed when they arrived at the house. Seeing for herself that Morgan was leaving Los Angeles and her family, Stephanie watched as Morgan boarded her plane.

Ridge and Taylor renewed their wedding vows, then an anxious Ridge insisted on taking his family to the island where he had first proposed to Taylor.

FEBRUARY 2001
February 5 to 9, 2001
Deacon handed Amber custody papers that stated that she could have full custody of Little Eric on the condition that he and Amber raised his son together for four months. Morgan arrived back at Forrester Creations, threatening to sue the Forresters for breach of contract if they refused to give her back her job. The paradise cruise Ridge, Taylor, and the children were on went horribly wrong when Steffy disappeared. A search party for her later found a torn-up life jacket and red shirt belonging to the little girl, floating in the water.
February 12 to 16, 2001
Taylor blamed Steffy's death on Ridge's failure to check on the child before the ferry accident. Meanwhile, Morgan took Steffy to her home, dyed her hair red, and changed her name to Stacey. Morgan asked the girl to call her "mama" and hired a nanny for her who spoke little English.
February 19 to 23, 2001
Ridge broke the news to a distraught and mournful Taylor that Morgan was back in town and working at Forrester Creations again. After she saw a picture of Ridge sitting on Morgan's mantel, Stephanie was furious with Brooke for giving Morgan her job back at Forrester Creations. Overhearing the conversation between Morgan and Stephanie, Norita, the nanny, became suspicious and worried about who "Stacey" really was. In an attempt to begin to find some closure, Ridge suggested that they go back to St. Thomas, but Taylor desperately yelled out that she was not ready to find any closure for Steffy yet.
February 26 to March 2, 2001
In an effort to become closer and resolve their differences, Brooke asked Stephanie to see a counselor with her. Ridge confided in his baby brother that he thought his marriage might be over. Taylor found Steffy calling out for her in Morgan's bedroom. Panic-stricken, not knowing what to do, Morgan locked Taylor in a secret room in her basement. As the counselor suggested, Stephanie begrudgingly went up to her cabin with Brooke for a girls' weekend.

MARCH 2001
March 5 to 9, 2001
After hearing Rick's news of making the college tennis team, Amber wondered whether Rick would really be happy being tied down to her and Little Eric during his college years. In an effort to stop him from finding the source of the noise in her basement, Morgan boldly seduced Tim on the couch. Brooke returned home from Big Bear and told Thorne that she wanted to protect her son from Amber just the way Stephanie had always protected her own sons. Taylor, out of her binds, tried unsuccessfully to attack Morgan and escape with Steffy.
March 12 to 16, 2001
Deacon tricked Amber into going to Café Russe with him. Sitting at a table across from Deacon and Amber, and believing they were on a date, Eric gave Brooke his blessing to split up Amber and their son. Deacon decided that the time was right to tell Amber that he loved her and that she belonged with him, not the "college boy" Rick. Eric informed Rick that Amber was on a date with Deacon. Brooke enlisted the help of Rick's teammate, Charlie, in her plan to split Rick and Amber up for good.
March 19 to 23, 2001
Though Morgan had seduced Tim into loyalty, Tim took pity on Taylor and let her see Steffy. Tim later convinced Morgan that Taylor might have mercy if Morgan let Taylor spend time with Steffy upstairs. Taylor opposed being ankle-chained in the living room, and Tim warned her about the guard dogs around the house. Brooke showed Amber pictures of Rick kissing Amanda, and Deacon professed his love for Amber. Rick walked in on Deacon and Amber kissing, and he later called off their wedding.
March 26 to 30, 2001
Rick couldn't tell Amber that he had broken their engagement because he saw Deacon kissing her. Deacon, meanwhile, was determined that Amber wouldn't go crawling back to Rick. Later, Deacon and Bridget shared a kiss after he helped her get past a club bouncer. Tim was moved by Taylor's pleas, but he wasn't able to go against Morgan's orders. Ridge continued to resist Morgan's advances. Morgan was prepared to leave work when she received a call from Steffy.

APRIL 2001
April 2 to 6, 2001
Deacon's arrival stopped Rick from telling Amber how he really felt about her and why he had broken off their engagement. Bridget later urged Rick to call Amber, but Deacon had already whisked her off to Las Vegas. In Las Vegas, Amber hit the jackpot. Morgan scolded Tim for letting Steffy use the phone to try to reach Ridge. Ridge found Steffy's drawing in Morgan's purse.
April 9 to 13, 2001
Ridge, knowing Morgan had lied to him about where she had gotten the drawing, decided to get close to her to find out what she knew about Taylor. Rick found out Deacon and Amber had left town, and hired a P.I. to find them. He located them in Vegas and went after her. Deacon and Amber got closer. Amber got a broken heart tattoo, and Deacon got one, too. Back at the motel, Deacon was sweet-talking Amber, finally convincing her she was over Rick and that he was who she needed. Before clothes flew, Rick was knocking at the door. Deacon wouldn't let him in, so Rick punched his nose. They both tried to win Amber. Ridge had a romantic dinner with Morgan, and Taylor worked on Dr. Tim, saying Morgan might dump him or even kill them all when she got Ridge.
April 16 to 20, 2001
Ridge and Morgan left the Café Russe. He was headed to her house. Taylor saw them approaching and threw a statue through the window. Dr. Tim covered well and kept the dogs from "eating" Ridge. Ridge went home, only to realize that the dogs in the picture Steffy had drawn were Dr. Tim's. He went back to Morgan's, and actually drove through the front of the house, where he found Morgan with a gun on Taylor. He talked her out of the gun and took Taylor and Steffy home to a heartwarming family reunion. Morgan and Dr. Tim eluded the police and argued over what to do next. Amber decided she still loved Rick and left Las Vegas with him. Sally was at the Insomnia, and so were Brooke and Bridget. Sally got mad that Brooke was there, yelled at her, and kicked her out. Meanwhile, Bridget had left and ran into a sad Deacon. She gave him her phone number, and he discovered she was a Forrester.
April 23 to 27, 2001
Taylor and Ridge had a blissful reunion. Rick and his lawyer looked for a way out of Amber's contract with Deacon, but the lawyer suggested that Rick just ride out the final month of the agreement. Amber gave Deacon a contract that would give her freedom in exchange for visitation rights with Little Eric. Deacon implored Amber to give him the final month to convince her of their feelings for each other. Amber, however, warned him that he'd lose custody of his son forever, and he finally signed the document.
April 30 to May 4, 2001
En masse, the Forresters went to Deacon and told him to stay away from Amber. They told him that he would be able to see Little Eric after the wedding. That made Deacon mad, and he vowed to make them pay. He remembered Bridget giving him her phone number and called her. She invited him to her birthday party. The family threw Bridget a big 18th birthday party. Deacon did show up, but didn't make his presence known. They also threw a party for the little kids the next day and hired a clown; they didn't know the clown was Morgan. Dr. Tim tried to talk her out of it, but she told him she needed closure -- which looked more like revenge.

MAY 2001
May 7 to 11, 2001
Morgan made herself known to Stephanie, and they seemed to bond. As Morgan left, though, Stephanie called the police. Morgan caught her, and they fought. Morgan fell into the pool, and Stephanie left her to drown. Meanwhile, Ridge and Taylor discovered the other clown was Dr. Tim and raced back to the main house. When they arrived, Stephanie told them what had happened. The police showed up, and Ridge lied and told them Morgan had fallen into the pool. However, when they went to the pool, there was no sign of Morgan. They heard the van leave and chased it, but Morgan was still at the house and attacked Stephanie. Eric rescued Stephanie. Deacon wined and dined Bridget and told her who he was. He was going to make the Forresters choose between Amber and Bridget.
May 14 to 18, 2001

Deacon and Bridget showed up, and Eric stopped the wedding. He tried to kick Deacon out, but Bridget defended Deacon.

The pair then headed to Vegas. Amber and Rick got married -- but so did Deacon and Bridget. Deacon and Bridget returned to the Lair, and the Forresters went gunning for Deacon. As Sally reminisced, she decided she couldn't keep the doors to Spectra open.
May 28 to June 1, 2001
Sally Spectra had decided to close Spectra Fashion when she happened to catch an interview with Antonio Dominguez, a new designer with a Latin flair. She decided to hire him and save the business. Amber went to talk Deacon out of his plan, but she refused to leave Rick. Rick called Deacon and put him on speakerphone with "Mom and Dad" there. While they argued, Bridget walked in, ready for the honeymoon to get started. Deacon put the earpiece of the phone in water so "Mom, Dad, and brother" could hear what was going on, but no one could hear them. They listened to the "consummation" of the marriage, all the while, screaming at them to stop. The next morning, Deacon was at the coffee shop, and Eric was determined to stop Deacon. When Deacon stepped outside, Eric was there and ran Deacon down.

Brooke sparred with Deacon over his mistreatment of her daughter, and while Deacon was turning a special home-cooked dinner into an excoriating event for Bridget, Brooke convinced Stephanie to tape-record Deacon's true feelings about Bridget. Stephanie succeeded in the endeavor; however, Deacon discovered her plan and set the recording on fire. As he pleaded with Stephanie to help him get Amber back, Bridget interrupted, and Stephanie asserted that Deacon was using Bridget until he got Amber back. Bridget became insecure about Deacon, but he placated her with sweetness and lies. To a friend, Amber admitted her vulnerability to Deacon, and the friend suggested that Amber give in to him.

Tensions exploded at the hospital as Bridget fought to survive her injuries. Eric brawled with Deacon, and Brooke grilled Amber about what could have set Bridget off on the car ride. Amber warned Deacon to stay away from Bridget, but he sneaked into her room to convince her that he'd developed real feelings for her. He claimed that he'd been wrong to hurt her in his effort to be in his son's life. Interrupting, Amber entered and insisted that Bridget couldn't believe a word Deacon said. He persisted in trying to get Bridget to see that he honestly wanted to make things up to her and be her husband. In Miami, Tony met with Ellen's doctor and learned that she'd had AIDS. The doctor wanted to test Tony, but Tony declined because he felt fine. The doctor insisted that Tony get tested for Kristen's sake. Tony flew home, and he and Kristen spent an intimate July Fourth together. Though they professed love for each other, Tony's mood was darkened by the news he'd received in Miami.
