The Bold and the Beautiful
Meanwhile, on BB, newlyweds Shauna (Denise Richards) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) spent time together. Quinn (Rena Sofer) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) sparred. Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), still in a great deal of pain from being hit by Bill’s (Don Diamont) car while riding her motorcycle, told her doctor, John “Finn” Finnegan, that she was out of pills.
Also, a romance started to blossom for Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Zoe (Kiara Barnes). While Zoe’s still hurting over being used by Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), she’s started to realize that Carter’s nothing like her former fiancé.
