Once Nicole learned that Lizzie’s adoption wasn’t finalized and she was technically still the little girl’s mom, she realized that she had a second chance and began rethinking her decision to give up her baby. Rick doesn’t understand what the holdup could be, complaining to Maya: “We sign the adoption papers and we go on with our life as usual.” Maya’s face falls and she confesses: “Nicole couldn’t sign them.”
So when Rick confronts Nicole with the adoption papers, he’s understandably emotional but tries to reign himself in. “Don’t you understand how much I love that little girl?!” he cries. But will his words have any effect on Nicole, who appears to have made up her mind?

Elsewhere at Forrester, Coco admits, “I’m a little worried about Nicole’s relationship with Rick and Maya’s daughter.” And Julius continues to take Nicole’s side against Maya, urging his daughter to fight for her child. “You don’t have to pretend to be strong and put up a… front in front of me to protect your sister,” he assures her. “Lizzie knows you’re her mother.” Will Nicole buckle under the pressure and make a decision that will tear her family apart?
