“The Bold and the Beautiful” Episode 6991 aired on Jan. 12, 2015 on CBS. The show begins with Maya advising Caroline to keep it real and how she should open up to the man who truly loves her. Maya tells Caroline that she’s just like her — an opportunist. Maya tells him she’s willing to drop everything all at once, because that’s how much she loves Rick. She tells Caroline that she fell in love with Rick even before she knew about Rick’s wealth and identity. Maya says that Caroline should wait and see because she’s bound to surprise everyone. Maya says Rick knows what she has to offer the world.
Pam tells Ridge about Rick replacing Stephanie’s photo with Maya’s portrait. Ridge tells Pam that he knows exactly why Rick placed Maya’s portrait in place of Stephanie — to send Caroline a message. Ridge tells Carter that he’s concerned about Caroline, not Rick. Ridge admits that everything that’s happened is because of him.
Aly confronts Rick and tells him how upset she was. She tells Rick that she knows he’s just putting on a show for the sake of hurting Caroline, more than sending a message to Stephanie. Rick says he’s not miserable and says that Maya has earned her position as a Forrester matriarch. Rick says he can’t forgive Caroline and that he owes Maya for opening his eyes to the lies and betrayal.
Rick flashes back to his conversation with Caroline at the mansion and smiles at the moment when Caroline broke her glass after seeing Maya’s portrait. Ridge visits Rick. Rick tells him that he doesn’t care what everybody else thinks he’s doing it for. Ridge tells him that he should stop punishing Caroline and advises him to start acting like a man. Ridge tells him Rick should blame him, not Caroline. Rick brings up the “daddy” issue and calls Rick “insecure.” Rick calls him a bastard who “takes and keeps on taking.” Ridge ends the conversation and tells him that if he wants to reconcile with Caroline, he should do it now. Ridge asks Rick if he’s already told Maya that he loves her, and when Rick doesn’t answer, Ridge proves his point that Rick’s only doing all these to hurt Caroline.
On the next episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Carter confronts Maya and asks her if she doesn’t think Rick’s only using her. Caroline’s still firm with her decision to save her marriage. Maya tells Rick “I love you.” Will Rick be able to tell Maya, “I love you too?”
