At Big Bear, Taylor sits alone in the living room. She holds the sweater Pam made for Thomas. She replays the conversation she had with Stephanie about Pam. The police connected Pam to the attempts on Ricks life, due to fibers found from the yarn she crochets with. Thomas interrupts her thoughts, when he comes in.
Pam has a visitor at jail. Its Donna. Donna taunts Pam with a gift. Its a stuffed puppy that looks like Pams old dog. Pam is happy, until she sees Donna fixed it so the head comes off. She also brought her crocheted handcuffs. Pam is not amused.
Outside the cabin, Steffy calls Rick. She tells him how much she misses him and shes fine. Hes just glad shes okay. He can manage a few days, since they have the rest of their lives together. She doesnt tell him her location, which is fine with him. He tells her Stephanie is trying to get Pam sprung from jail. Steffy isnt sure its Pam. Rick tells Steffy not to let her family brainwash her about him.
Thomas thinks Taylor is a bit out of it. He asks where Steffy has gone. Taylor says she went out for some air and Ridge is out there too. Thomas offers to check on Steffy.
Taylor asks Thomas if they can spend some time alone. Thomas wonders whats wrong, but Taylor says she just wants to talk to him. Thomas agrees and says hes starving. He heads to the table to eat, while Taylor looks deep in thought. She flashes back to holding the sweater and having fibers on her hands. Thomas says its nice for them to be together as a family. Taylor reminds him theyre together, because they think Steffy could be in danger with Ricks situation. She mentions how Stephanie doesnt think Pam could be responsible. How does he feel? Thomas says Pam is a sweetie. She couldnt have done it. Taylor mentions Pam made him the sweater. Thomas says its great. He wants to know how they can help get Pam out of jail. Taylor says they have to be able to show someone else did this. Thomas doesnt answer, but eats his breakfast.
Outside the cabin, Ridge calls Brooke. She wants to know where he is. Ridge tells her he doesnt want Rick knowing where Steffy is right now. Brooke tells him it was wrong for him to be part of what happened last night. Ridge says he didnt like the way it went down. Hes a father worried about losing another daughter. He tells Brooke she should be worried about Rick. Even though he doesnt like Rick, he doesnt want her to go through that.
Stephanie waits in Erics office at Forrester. Marcus walks in and asks if she rang. Stephanie says Pam is innocent and she wants to get her out. Marcus says she thinks his mother is responsible. Stephanie says she knows Steffy broke his heart. They did this to get back at Rick. If he confesses, shell help him get a good lawyer. Marcus just looks at her with a scornful expression.
At the jail, Donna says she warned everyone about how crazy Pam was. No one believed her and thought it was the scar tissue. Pam says it wasnt her. She thinks Donna framed her. Donna looks shocked at the accusation.
Rick goes by Brookes. He tells her hes surprised Tommy boys punch was that great. Brooke looks at his eye and says he had no right to do that. Rick says the whole situation was uncalled for. Brooke says she told Ridge the same thing. Pam is in jail and hes safe. If he thought Steffy was in danger hed take care of it. He reminds his mother how he feels about Steffy.
At the cabin, Steffy sits looking unhappy. Ridge sees her and tells her she may not understand it, but it was for the best. Steffy doesnt agree and wonders what got into Thomas with him belting Rick. Ridge doesnt answer.
Inside, Taylor sits with Thomas at the table. He says it bothers him that Aunt Pam is sitting in a jail cell. He doesnt think it makes sense for her to go after Rick. Taylor suggests maybe Pam holds him responsible for Phoebes death. Thomas says Rick is responsible. He doesnt understand how Steffy can even let Rick touch her. He starts to get agitated and tells his mom he doesnt want to talk about Rick. It makes him a little crazy. Taylor watches him closely. Thomas asks what she wants to talk to him about. Taylor says just thinking about the things that have happened to their family. Its been hard for all of them. She thinks it was especially painful for him. He had hopes for his family and she and Ridge divorced. Shes made some bad choices in men, people he didnt really like. She mentions Nick and Rick. He says hes so glad she didnt get together with Rick. He bitterly says he wonders how Rick feels fooling around with his dead exs sister. Taylor says hes always been so protective of his sisters. Theyve always looked up to him and loved him. Thomas wants to know why shes talking like this. Taylor says she knows he loves his family. Thomas looks at his mother intently and it dawns on him she thinks he did the things to Rick. He asks if she believes hes responsible. Taylor remains silent, but meets his gaze.
Still at the jail, Donna continues to mess with Pam. Pam thinks she and Marcus wanted to see her in jail. Donna gets angry and says they will not pin this on her or Marcus. She knows how much Stephanie and Pam would love to get her out of Erics life. She is not responsible for whats happened. The police have made their arrest and it will stick.
At Brookes, Rick tells his mother not to fall for Ridges garbage. Its just another ploy to keep him away from Steffy. Brooke believes hes just trying to protect Steffy. Rick again says Pam is in jail. Brooke says for the time being, he should just let Steffy have some space. Brooke tells him this relationship will only cause him trouble. She wishes he would rethink this whole thing. Rick tells her she better get used to it. He and Steffy will be together he says confidently.
Steffy tells her dad she knows its his job to protect her. Ridge tells her there is a very unstable person out there. He doesnt want to risk her being caught in the middle. Shes safe being with her family right now.
Inside the cabin, Thomas cant believe his mother thinks he would try to kill Rick. He angrily says he despises Rick, but hes not a murderer. Taylor backs off and gets coffee for them. Thomas looks at her and quietly says he only wanted to scare him. Taylor drops the cup in shock. Thomas goes on to say if she thinks he started the fire and blew up Ricks car, he did. He didnt want to hurt him. Taylor looks at him and shakes her head astounded.
Donna is leaving the police station, when she runs into Stephanie. Stephanie wants to know what shes doing there. Donna says she had to see it for herself. Pam is finally where she should be. She tells Stephanie she knows theyd like to pin this on her and Marcus. She tells Stephanie dont waste her time, since theres no evidence. Stephanie says if she could get Donna locked away it wouldnt be a waste of time.
Stephanie walks in to see Pam. Pam is happy to see her. They hug. Stephanie says she saw Donna was here. Pam shows her the dog. Stephanie agrees Donna shouldnt have been there to torture her. Pam begs Stephanie again to believe she didnt do this. Stephanie hugs her in comfort and tells her shes working to get her out of there.
Rick tells his mother hes so frustrated. He and Steffy havent had any time together. Brooke says Ridge and Taylor agreed to back off. Rick says what they pulled last night says they arent ready to accept the relationship. He says Stephanie is relentless. He wonders how his mother survived that all these years. Brooke sighs and says shes not sure, but she did. Shes more concerned about him right now. If what Stephanie says is true and Pam is innocent, theres a maniac out there that wants him dead.
At the cabin, Taylor grabs her head and looks at the broken cup. Thomas is very emotional and says he hates Ricks guts. First he was with Phoebe and broke her heart. Then his mother fell in love with him and Rick moved in their home. Thomas is almost in tears as he says he was the man of the house after Ridge moved out. Rick came in with all his smooth talking arrogance. Thomas couldnt stand having him around. Taylor asks why he didnt say anything. Thomas loudly says he just wanted her to be happy. She was having a hard time with everything else going on. She didnt need her sons disapproval. Taylor sadly tells him shes so sorry. She had no idea. Thomas said he just kept his feelings inside and wore a smile, when Rick was around. Thomas says he hated seeing Rick in the mornings, knowing he had shared her bed. First his sister and then his own mother, knowing they were vulnerable. Rick took advantage and didnt deserve either one of them. Taylor drops her head. Thomas tells her there was nothing he could do, so he just went along with it. He throws his hands up and says finally thank God, she came to her senses and dumped Rick. That was the best day for him. He thought their lives would get back to normal. It didnt last, since Rick didnt stay out of their lives. Phoebe came home and the next thing he knew she was dead. It didnt stop there, but Rick goes after her twin. Steffy thinks shes in love with the man, who killed her twin sister. How could this happen? Thomas said he had to stop him. He had to take his power over their family away. He just wanted to scare him. He wipes tears from his eyes. Taylor moves towards him, but Thomas stops her. He says hes sorry. He cries and says he was stupid and now Aunt Pam is in jail because of him. Taylor touches his face and pulls him in her arms, where she rocks him. He cries and says he really screwed up.
