I don't know what to make of Rick Forrester. I wasn't watching when he was last in Los Angeles actually living there. Last time I actually saw him, he was a child. I think I like him. He's a smart guy (it seems) because he's got Stephanie's number and he's wary of Ridge. I'm uncertain though where his allegiance lies...I was almost certain he's on Nick's side because of his actions and comments to him when he went to visit him (first) plus the talk he had with his mother (which Ridge was eavesdropping in). Then he went to Forrester Originals and let Ridge know that Nick won't back down..that if pushed, he will push back. It was almost as if he was warning Ridge (and the other Forresters) to watch out. I think (and hope) he's on Nick's side and goes to work for him (this would piss off the Forresters to no end).
BTW...is there any way we can get Mr. Bell to stop having Ridge call Nick "Popeye Marone"? If he can't, can we call Ridge "Triangle Head"? If Ron Moss' cheeks sink any further, his face will totally cave in.
