Ridge looks frustrated. Brooke says they have to have faith in each other. She has a tentative smile as she reaches to hug Ridge. Ridge reciprocates, but seems leery. The phone rings and the answering machine picks up. Its Rick telling his mother hell be there for dinner with Steffy. Theyre both are looking forward to the dinner. Ridge closes his eyes in pain. He pulls back from Brooke. He tells Brooke her son will always be part of her life. Their love isnt enough. Brooke looks ready to cry.

He tells Jackie he works hard in this company. Nick tells him to get his things. Hes fired. Owen doesnt back down. He lets Nick know Jackie owns the company not him. Jackie wants the men to stop. Owen puts her on the spot and asks what she wants.
Back at Brookes, she tries to convince him he has to believe in them. Ridge says he cant weather this storm. He knows Brooke is a mother. Rick is her son. However, Rick is the bane of his existence. No amount of love between them will change the fact he holds Rick responsible for Phoebes death. Brooke has tears. Ridge says hes been expecting her to feel about Rick the same way he does. He knows this is wrong. He cant change his feelings, so for now he cant be there. Brooke is devastated. She tells Ridge to please say this isnt the end. Ridge cant deny it. She reaches for him. They hug each other tightly. They kiss as Ridge looks at her and holds her face. He breaks away and hurries out the door.
Once hes outside, he leans on the door and breaks down. He composes himself and rushes away.
Inside the house, Brooke walks like a zombie. Her face is frozen with tears. She makes it to the couch, where she collapses. She curls up and the tears flow.
Rick gets to his moms house, where he sees her on the couch. He sees her face and knows something is wrong. She tells him Ridge is gone. Rick says Ridge is just upset, but hell be back. Brooke doesnt move. She tells Rick not this time. Ridge has left for good. Rick looks unsure of what to say.
Ridge is at the guest house staring out the window. Stephanie comes in and is surprised at his appearance. He wonders why shes there. She explains she came to pick up something at the house and the housekeeper said he was there. He tells her he had to stay somewhere. Stephanie offers to help in whatever way she can. Ridge declines and says he has to work this out himself. Ridge tells his mother he let Brooke down. He cant be with her and have Rick in his life. Hes not sure what hes going to do next. He walks in the other room. Stephanie looks concerned.
After Ridge leaves, Stephanie pulls out her cell phone and calls Taylor. She feels Taylor should get over there right away.
In Jackies office, Nick yells at Owen about putting Jackie on the spot. Jackie tries to intervene. Nick feels Owen is taking advantage of her. Owen just wants an answer from Jackie. Does she want him out of the company and her life. Nick tells her he loves her. Shes his mother and he wants to know what its going to be. Jackie pauses and then announces she has to side with her son. Owen looks stunned.
Rick gets his mother a glass of water. Brooke sits dejectedly on her couch. Rick is so sorry shes gong through this for standing up for him. Brooke says its not his fault. Rick says it is kind of his fault. Rick wanted them all to be happy. He promised Steffy he would work things out. Brooke says thats what she told Ridge. She sees its beyond her ability to fix it. Maybe there is someone that can. She looks off in the distance.
Taylor makes it to Erics guest house, where Stephanie is waiting anxiously. Taylor wants to know whats going on. Stephanie tells her Ridge has ended things with Brooke. Taylor looks surprised.
Taylor walks in the bedroom, where Ridge sits idly on the bed. She asks him how hes holding up. Ridge tells her he had to do it. Taylor comes in and sits next to him. She asks if he wants to be alone. Ridge says hes just trying to process everything. Taylor gets up to go and speak with Stephanie. She leaves her purse lying on the bed.
After Taylor leaves, Ridge spots the pills in Taylors purse. He takes them and pops a pill.
At Jackie Ms, Owen is alone with Jackie. Jackie tries to explain to Owen why she sided with Nick. Owen understands why she fired him. He loves his job, but its become less of a priority. He feels their relationship has been great, but he wants more. Jackie is dejected. She thinks Owen wants to move on and is bored with her. She goes over and sinks down on the couch. Owen quickly moves over and kneels in front of her. He declares he wants to move on with her. Jackie looks shocked. Owen tells her this has nothing to do with him losing his job. He grabs Jackies hands and asks her to marry him. He doesnt want to lose this. He wants to make the rest of her days the happiest. He will give all of himself to her. Jackie says yes. She will marry him. The two hug with joy.
Ridge paces around the guest house bedroom. Stephanie peeps in and sees Ridge with the pill bottle. He pops another pill. Her brow wrinkles with unease. Ridge sits on the bed and Stephanie comes in and sits next to him. Stephanie says Taylor is making him tea. She thinks this will be good for him. Ridge is already showing signs of being under the influence and tells his mother how great Taylor has been. She really had him feeling good up at Big Bear. Stephanie reminds him Taylor loves him. He says the feeling is mutual and for her also. She thanks him.
Taylor returns with the tea. While Ridges back is turned, Stephanie fishes the pills out of Taylors purse. She tells the two good bye and kisses each on the cheek.
After Stephanie leaves, Taylor asks Ridge if hes finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. She gives him the tea. Ridge thinks hell be alright and the thanks go to her. Taylor smiles and tells him she cares about him and is glad to be of service. Ridge doesnt know how she does it. Taylor is a bit confused. Ridge laughs and is almost giddy. He tells Taylor he hasnt been this happy, since the other day at Big Bear. He looks at Taylor intently. She looks at him lovingly. Ridge tells her she is so beautiful. He reaches out to caress her face. Ridges vision is slightly blurred from the effects of the pills.
Alone in the living room of the guest house, Stephanie looks at the pills. Her face is tight with questions as she glances towards the bedroom.
