In the Jan. 7, 2015 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Rick tells Caroline that he can’t put this behind him.
He asks Caroline, “Why did it have to be Ridge?” Caroline tells them they can go away, that they can put all that happened behind them. Rick tells her he cannot do that because he’s running a company. Caroline replies that she’s trying to save a marriage and questions Rick’s priority. He tells her he tried his best to put everything behind him, but every time he gets close to her, he remembers what happened between Caroline and Ridge. Rick painfully tells Caroline that all he asked from her was loyalty, trust and commitment, which Caroline broke. Caroline tells her it was a mistake, but Rick tells her that it was a mistake made with the wrong man. Caroline tells Rick that he doesn’t love Maya and insists that Maya was just a fall back. Rick tells her it’s over and takes off his ring. He bids Caroline goodbye and leaves his ring on the table. Caroline walks away with the ring and whispers, “No it’s not over.”
Back at Forrester Creations, Ridge describes Rick as an angry little boy who has control over the entire company and over all of them. Eric agrees and says, “Yeah, he and Maya.” Ridge tells Eric not to underestimate Maya, especially because she’s the only person Rick can trust. Ridge believes that Rick’s heart is still with Caroline. Eric tells him that Caroline and Ridge have something special. Ridge said he wishes it wasn’t that way.
As Maya settles in on her new home, Ivy tells her she shouldn’t be making any big decision until Rick comes home. Maya defends herself and says that Rick is the one in command and that she was the one who made that happen. Maya warns Ivy to be careful of her words from now on and tells her she’s finally living her dream and invites Ivy to become part of that dream. As Ivy makes her exit, Maya tells her that she and Aly won’t be sleeping in the mansion tonight. Ivy tells her she won’t leave until Rick asks her to.
Eric confronts Rick and tells him he’s very disappointed at him. Rick asks him if he loves Maya. He tells Eric, “She would never do to me what Caroline did.” Caroline tells Ridge that she doesn’t think Rick will ever get over Maya and that he’s every woman’s unattainable dream.
Rick arrives home and tells Stephanie’s photo, “If you could only see us now.” Maya appears and Rick shows her that he’s replaced Stephanie’s photo with Maya’s. Maya tells Rick she feels like she did not earn it, but Rick tells her it’s the start of their dream as he pulls her into a hug.
SPOILER ALERT: On the next episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Rick gets confronted about Maya’s picture on the wall. Rick says he doesn’t give a damn about who disapproves while Caroline moves in with her cousin.
