Ridge vowed to reunite with Brooke

B&B Logo

Ridge convinced Brooke that she was the only woman he wanted to be married to, and he showed her the annulment papers he'd had Carter draw up for Shauna. Brooke forgave Ridge, apologized for kissing Bill, and promised that she had no residual feelings for Bill. When Eric told Shauna and Quinn that Ridge was trying to get back together with Brooke, Quinn told Bill about Ridge's new marriage and urged Bill to profess his love for Brooke before Ridge talked her into returning to him. At Thomas' prodding, Steffy persuaded Finn, against his better judgment, to refill her prescription pain medication.
