The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers recap for Thursday, December 22, reveals that John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) kissed Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and admired the Christmas decorations with her.
Steffy was concerned about the threat of Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) hanging over them, but Finn didn’t want her worrying – especially during the holidays.
Finn vowed to always be there to protect Steffy and the kids.
When Kelly Spencer (Sophia Paras McKinlay) appeared, Finn asked what she hoped Santa would bring her for Christmas.
Kelly insisted she already had the only thing she really wanted since her family was together.
Steffy and Finn were proud of Kelly for realizing the true meaning of Christmas, so they all talked about love and what a great big sister she was to Hayes Finnegan (Iliana and Vienna Norris).
Finn, Steffy and Kelly eventually shared a sweet group hug on the sofa.
Afterward, Finn and Steffy enjoyed some eggnog as they discussed Kelly’s wise words. Steffy agreed it was the best Christmas ever because they were together.
As Steffy thought back to her miraculous Monaco reunion with Finn, she remembered how magical that gift was.
Steffy expressed her love and kissed Finn before they cuddled on the couch.
Meanwhile, Eric Forrester (John McCook) summoned Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) to the Forrester mansion and admitted he was worried about him.
Eric didn’t want Ridge to feel alone or untethered this holiday season.
Ridge felt he should have his act together at this point in his life and was hoping to figure out what was next.
Once Eric acknowledged that Ridge had been in the same room with Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), he asked what happened.
Ridge gave updates offscreen on his double dumping and admitted he was proud of Brooke as well as Taylor.
That said, Ridge was indeed feeling untethered like his dad suspected, so Eric wanted him to attend the Forrester holiday gathering.
When Charlie Webber (Dick Christie) and Pam Douglas (Alley Mills) came back from a grocery shopping trip, they talked about going all out for Christmas and offered Ridge support since everyone at Forrester Creations knew about his heartbreak.
Once Pam and Charlie headed in the kitchen, Eric confirmed that Brooke would be at the gathering later.
However, Eric felt confident that despite everything that went down, Brooke would love to see Ridge at Christmas.
Ridge reflected on how badly he screwed up since he loved two women for most of his adult life and couldn’t make a choice.
After Ridge wondered why Taylor and Brooke would put up with that for so long, Eric suggested it was because they loved Ridge so deeply.
Ridge loved Brooke and Taylor too, but he knew he’d let them down over and over. That’s why Ridge wanted to change and find a way to be a better man.
Whether Ridge accomplished that or not, Eric pointed out that he’d still be his “old man” and gave his son a big hug.
In Dr. Grace Buckingham’s (Cassandra Creech) office, Katie Logan (Heather Tom) kept rambling about how she shouldn’t have put off her appointment and how the doc wasn’t saying anything. It left Katie nervous that her results weren’t good.
Dr. Buckingham insisted that the results were actually very positive and that there were no signs of heart transplant rejection.
In fact, Dr. Buckingham would go as far as saying Katie was a walking miracle.
After pointing out that Katie had a wonderful support system, Dr. Buckingham had to leave for another consult.
Katie cried tears of relief and said she couldn’t think Carter enough for being there for her.
At Forrester Creations on Thursday’s B&B episode, Carter told Katie to relax and bask in the good news. Once Carter asked Katie if she trusted him, she confirmed that she did.
Carter encouraged Katie to close her eyes, take a deep breath and slowly release.
Since Katie was privately dealing with so much worry before the appointment, Carter wished she’d opened up to him.
Carter knew Katie had been doing things on her own for a while now, but he assured Katie that she didn’t have to be alone anymore.
Although Carter pointed out he didn’t have a jet or yacht, those things didn’t mean anything to Katie.
Now that Katie had a new lease on life, she was going to use Storm Logan’s (William DeVry) heart in the best way possible and live her life to the fullest.
Katie talked about how she would love fully and completely before embracing Carter in gratitude. Carter pulled Katie close and gave her a kiss on the forehead.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Katie and Carter’s romance will heat up soon, so stick with the CBS soap.
