They each have big secrets concerning Katie and Bill’s upcoming custody battle over Will, and now, with the court date looming closer, both Brooke and Ridge will work to keep the truth from getting out on the Monday, Sept. 24 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) hasn’t been shy about her opinion that Katie (Heather Tom) shouldn’t be trying to keep Bill (Don Diamont) from shared custody of their son together, but no one knows she’s been working with him behind-the-scenes as she tries to convince her sister to change her mind. She’s been fearful that things now heading to court will lead to her secret being exposed, though Bill has assured her he won’t let that happen. Now, as she pays him another visit, he will reveal how much her support has meant to him, despite their own questionable past.

“I appreciate you,” he says in a preview clip for the episode.

Meanwhile, her husband, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), is also keeping a huge secret regarding the case. Once the date and judge were announced, Ridge realized he had a way of influencing the decision, because the judge in the case is someone who owed him some favors.

As a result, he went to Judge McMullen (Joe Lando) and pressured him to rule in Katie’s favor even before he heard the case out. Ridge not only wants his brother to successfully have influence over Will’s (Finnegan George) future, but he also wants revenge against Bill for the role he played in changing Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life.

Now, as he passionately discusses the case with his father, Eric (John McCook), he will be forced to cover his tracks as the older man begins to question why he seems so invested in something that only affects Thorne (Ingo Rademacher)--and not him.

“What surprises me is how invested you are in it,” Eric says in the clip.

“You have no idea,” Ridge replies.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” airs weekdays at 1:30 p.m. EDT on CBS.
