Jake Maclaine sets up the cameras and the audio equipment for the big announcement: Rick's promotion to the presidency of Forrester Creations. Rick is thrilled; but the one cloud over his happiness is the possibility that Brooke and Eric will discover he concealed his recovery until now. Marcus, for his part, is happy for Rick. But the general reaction is very negative. Ridge, of course, is angry and bitter. The presidency was his, and now suddenly Eric wants Rick to be co-president? Ridge resigns as president and gives up his office to design from home. Taylor is on the side of Ridge, not her former fiancé. Steffy is upset. Thorne belittles the idea to Rick's face. Brooke is torn between her son and her longtime lover. She hopes that her speech will smooth things over for everyone. Written by
