The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers recap for Monday, February 7, reveals that John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) suspected Sheila Hayes (Kimberlin Brown) after she delivered a Brooke Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) clue – and Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) predicted the last straw for Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye). Here’s how all Monday’s B&B drama played out.
At the cliff house, Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) insisted this was a very serious accusation.
Taylor wondered if Steffy and Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) were certain that Brooke had been unfaithful to Ridge with Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan).
Thomas confirmed that the original story came from Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri), who saw Grandma kissing Santa Claus on New Year’s Eve.
Steffy insisted Deacon was the guy in the Santa hat on New Year’s Eve – and that he spent the night!
Taylor was upset since this had to be so confusing for Douglas.
Thomas said they didn’t want to drag Douglas into this anymore than they had to, especially since it could turn into a situation where it was Douglas’ word against Brooke’s.
Steffy then revealed that they’d hacked into the security footage at Brooke and Ridge’s house with Charlie Webber’s (Dick Christie) help.
Once Taylor saw the footage, she reeled as she realized Deacon really had spent the night.
Taylor wondered how Brooke could do this to Ridge and realized this was why Brooke was acting so off lately.
Steffy asked how many times Brooke had to cheat for Ridge to say enough.
Steffy felt like this time would be the last straw – and then Taylor could finally reunite with Ridge.
Although Steffy insisted they could all be a family again, Taylor looked skeptical.
At home, Brooke felt like she’d probably never be able to forgive herself for what happened.
Ridge offered to attend more meetings with Brooke and try to help her fix this.
They went to a meeting right away, so that left Ridge full of praise with Brooke when they got back.
Something Brooke said at the meeting stuck with Ridge: how the shame that came after drinking was the worst part.
Ridge gushed over how proud he was since Brooke told the truth about New Year’s Eve in front of all those people.
Seeing Brooke’s bravery made Ridge love her even more.
In Finn’s office at the hospital, he got a visit from his birth mother. Sheila said she was at the bakery around the corner and picked up a little treat for Finn.
Sheila reflected on how she couldn’t do things like that for Finn as a boy and regretted missing so many milestones.
Sheila handed over some chocolate chip cookies, but Finn was uncomfortable.
Finn pointed out that Steffy could’ve been there, but Sheila acted like Steffy was always busy – especially now that she was spending a lot of time with Taylor.
Sheila mentioned how giving Finn up as a newborn was the hardest thing she’d ever done.
Finn replied that from what he’d heard, Jack Finnegan (Ted King) kind of pressured Sheila into it.
Sheila acknowledged that it felt like that at the time, but she didn’t want Finn to resent his father any more than he already did.
Sheila just prayed she could spend more time with Finn and Hayes Forrester Finnegan (Piper Harriot) in the near future.
Finn pointed out that Steffy wasn’t at a place of forgiveness yet, but Sheila hoped Taylor could convince her daughter one day.
Sheila added that Brooke was “hell bent” on making sure she wasn’t part of Finn and Hayes’ lives, but she felt confident Brooke’s day of reckoning was coming sooner rather than later.
That comment raised Finn’s suspicions, but Sheila acted like she was just speaking generally.
Sheila said she wouldn’t let Brooke or anyone else interfere with her relationship with Finn.
Once Sheila was alone, she flashed back to her Champagne label swap and chuckled over getting Brooke to drink again.
Sheila insisted it was only a matter of time before Brooke screwed up even worse – and then Brooke’s whole world would come crashing down.
At Carter Walton’s (Lawrence Saint-Victor) loft, Paris Buckingham (Diamond White) couldn’t understand why he was letting their strong connection go.
Paris kept pushing Carter to be real with her and explain where his head was at, but Carter felt all of this was too complicated.
Paris argued that the pull between them wasn’t going anywhere. She knew they could be good together and refused to give up on them.
Afterward, Paris was preoccupied back at the office. Grace Buckingham (Cassandra Creech) could tell Paris had a lot on her mind and seemed down.
Grace urged Paris to meet up with Zende Forrester Dominguez (Delon de Metz) and played up how much he loved Paris.
However, Paris said she had a meeting coming up and let Grace know she’d see her at home.
Back at Carter’s loft, he worked out while flashing back to some kisses with Paris as well as Grace’s threat.
Grace called Carter and assumed he’d done what she asked.
Carter confirmed that he ended things with Paris for her sake, so Grace was pleased – though she warned Carter that she’d be watching him.
Grace still wanted to make sure Carter stayed away from Paris, but she ultimately smirked to herself over the victory.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say temptation will remain a problem for Carter and Paris, so stay tuned to the CBS soap.
