Phoebe’s final death scene on The Bold And The Beautiful explained

Phoebe and her sister spent a lot of their childhood at a boarding school in London. However, when Phoebe returned to LA in 2006 she was a focal character in the storyline. Mainly due to her relationship with Rick Forrester which caused a bridge between the Forrester family. Even though they aren’t blood-related, Rick is Ridge’s half brother and Phoebe’s father is Ridge.

In 2008, Steffy and Phoebe were reunited and discussed Rick’s recent antics toward their father. When Phoebe hears that Rick had kissed Steffy against her will she is fuming. Phoebe decides to confront Rick at his Forrester Creations office, he tries to leave but she gets in his car. As he drives away she begins hitting him, this results in him losing control of the vehicle and fatally crashing.

After the accident, Rick manages to walk to Eric’s house for help. Ridge was already trying to get hold of Phoebe so he followed him to the site of the accident. Phoebe was barely conscious when Ridge arrived and he attempted to wake her up. He holds his daughter in his arms whilst she faintly begins to sing the song she wrote for Ridge and Brooke’s wedding.

All we hear of the song is, “Close my eyes and think you’re always there, you’re always there…” before Phoebe passes away.

She died in her father’s arms as Ridge screams out in pain of losing his daughter. Listen to the heartbreaking song that Phoebe wrote for her father in the clip below.
