TV | Bold & Beautiful Recap: Zende Decides to Take Luna From RJ
In Forrester’s design office, Thomas tells Hope how happy he is… but then he thinks about Granddad’s situation. They go over not being able to talk to anyone about it since Eric doesn’t want anyone knowing. Hope strokes his face and is about to comfort him when Zende walks in and slams the door. He fumes about Hope For the Future being put on the backburner so RJ can learn to design with Eric. Zende rants that they brought the line back from the dead and should be celebrated and not penalized. He can’t understand why Eric would choose to collaborate with RJ.
In the main office, RJ tells Ridge that they should tell Zende about Granddad so he understands. Ridge has already told Steffy and Thomas and feels bad about it for not respecting his father’s wishes. It will be fine. RJ argues it’s not fine. The family is losing its leader.
In Finn’s office, he tells his mother they need to talk about Luna and Poppy. Li says they won’t be in L.A. much longer. Finn says that’s not the impression he got from Luna last night. Li’s irritated to hear that he and Steffy hosted Luna and RJ for dinner, “Why would you let that girl in your house?” She sneers that Luna sure moves fast. Not only is she dating RJ Forrester, she’s managed to cozy up to the boss. Finn says Steffy sensed no issues on Luna’s part and neither did he. He made her a promise that he would do whatever he possibly could to make sure she and Poppy repair their relationship and get along like sisters should. Li snaps that he’ll be breaking his promise because that’s not happening, “Not in this lifetime.”
At Il Giardino, Bill introduces himself to Poppy and Luna. Poppy looks irritated but Luna introduces herself and her mother. Bill continues to stare quizzically at Poppy as though he vaguely remembers her. He asks if she frequents New York, or maybe San Francisco. Luna pipes up to say that’s where they’re from, “Maybe you met there.” Bill wonders if maybe they had friends in common and were at the same parties or bars. Poppy insists they don’t know each other. Bill looks unconvinced. Luna chatters away to Bill about being an intern at Forrester as Poppy makes faces. Bill can’t shake the feeling that he knows her. He normally doesn’t forget names and faces. Poppy reminds him she’s having lunch with her daughter. Bill can take a hint and tells Luna it was nice to meet her, “And it was nice to meet you again, Poppy.”
In the design office, Zende complains that RJ was hand-picked to design with Eric because of Ridge. Thomas says that’s not true. Zende tells him he’s not even convincing. Thomas is sorry he’s feeling passed over, but it was Granddad’s decision. Hope says, “It’s true, Zende.” Zende rants that RJ didn’t even want to be here and he’s been at the company the entire time, “And I’m not even in the running?” He feels RJ has home court advantage as Brooke and Ridge’s son.
In the main office, RJ and Ridge go over the honor of Eric choosing him to help him design, “I’m glad I came back when I did.” It’s been quite the education but his grandfather opened up to him in ways he never had before, “It meant a lot to me.” RJ will carry that with him, along with his legacy. Ridge grips his son’s shoulder.
At Il Giardino, Luna chirps about meeting Bill Spencer. She shows her mother older photos of him online and asks if she’s sure she doesn’t remember meeting him. Just then, Luna gets called back to work. They express their love and she leaves. Once alone, Poppy appears to fume.
In Finn’s office, Li scoffs that Poppy is not just some scattered hippy chick, “Luna doesn’t even know who her father is!” This reconciliation he wants with her and her sister will not happen. Finn argues that whatever her issues with Poppy, Luna is innocent. He wants to get to know her better.
Hope and Thomas join Ridge in the main office. They’re hoping they can convince him to breathe new life into Hope For the Future’s budget. Ridge grimaces. The money went to Eric’ collection. Thomas says the team is frustrated and they were hoping there might be some extra funds lying around. “I don’t think I’ve seen Zende so upset.” Hope feels his anger was directed more at RJ.
In the design office, Luna tells RJ that she came back from lunch because Eric asked her to receive a delivery. RJ’s not sorry to see her. They’re kissing when Zende passes by the door. He stops and smirks before interrupting, “Ridge is looking for you.” RJ finds that strange but tells Luna they’ll pick up their conversation later. Zende joins Luna in the office. She asks, “Do you need something?” He tells her, “You have no idea.”
In the main office, RJ asks Ridge, “You wanted to see me?” Ridge is confused but thinks they should talk about Zende and what is going on. He explains that RJ showing up threw a wrench in his path. RJ argues that Ridge knows why. Ridge says Zende doesn’t know. What he sees is some young guy coming in and taking the place that should be his.
In the design office, Zende tells Luna it’s pretty obvious she and RJ are getting close. He advises her to make sure the door is locked. He goes on about how he lives and breathes fashion and suspects it’s the same for her, “Keep in mind, RJ isn’t the only Forrester coming up around here.”
In the main office, RJ tells his father that he thinks Zende is out to get him. Ridge argues, “There’s nothing that Zende can take from you.”
Next on The Bold and the Beautiful: Ridge creates a romantic evening to give thanks to Brooke as they recall their great love story.
