Monday, June 1, family and friends gather to witness the nuptials of Traci (Beth Maitland) and Brad (THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL’s Don Diamont), while Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) and Dina (Adams) plot against Jill (Walton), and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) struggles with her drinking.

Meanwhile, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and her father, Jack Hamilton (Chris Robinson), try to make sense of why Ridge married Brooke so soon after he thought Taylor died. Darla (Schae Harrison) brings Sally Spectra (Conley) a new hairdresser, Gladys (the late Phyllis Diller), who reveals that Taylor is still alive!
