The Bold and the Beautiful preview for Wednesday, May 20, sees a temporary truce called between two sworn enemies, per SheKnows Soaps. The episode originally aired on February 16, 2007, and showed Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) putting aside their differences to support Eric Forrester (John McCook).

The proceedings celebrate 5,000 episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful and follows four characters looking back. Brooke, Stephanie, Eric, and Ridge Forrester (then Ronn Moss) were the only remaining original cast members of B&B at the time. They then took a moment together to reflect and look back at “5,000 moments.”

This week, the show highlights some of the best Brooke Logan moments. In this particular episode, she’s forced to face her longtime nemesis, Stephanie. She didn’t want to re-enter Big Bear cabin, but then her mischievous side took over as she and Ridge hatched a plan.

Eric wanted to open a chain of Forrester Boutiques. His family knew that it would place a financial burden on them, and met to discuss his idea. Stephanie was upset that her family’s legacy may be lost if Nick Marone (Jack Wagner) sell Forrester Originals to the new Forrester Creations. As they discussed the proposition, things became heated and Ridge left the room. Brooke left to go after him, as she didn’t want to be left alone with his mother. They both knew that the truce was only temporary, and Brooke was afraid that Stephanie might take a jab at her while Ridge was away.

In the meantime, Eric and Stephanie exchanged a few raunchy comments before getting into a pillow fight. After, Stephanie agreed to support Eric in his new business venture.

In the meantime, Brooke didn’t want to go back into their vacation home because of the animosity between her and Stephanie. Instead of entering through the door, Brooke and Ridge decided to climb through Eric’s bedroom window. They wanted to eavesdrop on Ridge’s parents to find out what was really going on with them. However, they happened upon an intimate moment being shared between Stephanie and Eric.

Soon, the four began to remember all the years they spent together. Of course, soap opera fans know that it all started when the characters first met Brooke as she was catering a big bash they had held.

The quartet reminisced and shared their favorite memories over the past few decades. They waded through some crazy personal and professional moments, and remembered those who had played an important part in their lives.
