Ridge tells Thomas that his new dress is exquisite and that he is very proud. It will be added to the new couture line. Thomas was not expecting that, but is very pleased. Ridge states that the dress must have been inspired, he bets the name is Caroline Spenser. Thomas admits he wants to see more of Caroline and he’s taking her out tonight for a romantic dinner. Hope is stunned when Caroline tells her that Rick wears women’s clothing. Caroline says she is okay with that. There is not a one size fits all for all people, but she is not okay with the dishonesty about it. She detests secrets. Hope sees the pictures but she still can’t believe it; it looks so wrong. Caroline’s mother, Karen, calls her. She has rented a beach house there in L.A. and would like to have Caroline over for dinner and a movie. Caroline puts her off since she has a date with Thomas.

In his office, Amber comes on to Rick all hot and heavy and wants to go all the way. She begs him not to say no. She wants to show him how much she loves him. Hope interrupts and is glad Amber is there as it will save her a trip. Hope tells Rick that she tried to find out why Caroline was being so distant. Caroline is under the impression for some reason that Rick is a cross dresser. She looks to Amber for answers. She even shows Rick the pictures of him in dresses and he realizes they are good but photo shop fakes. He accuses Amber of setting him up. Hope agrees; Amber is still devious and manipulative. She fills him in on Amber giving her the pills. He gets the picture and says he can take it from here. Amber stutters that she was only trying to help his sister, and what they have is too special and they can’t let others tear them apart. She has always been there for him through thick and thin. Yes, she can do crazy things but they can salvage this. He looks at her in disgust.
