Ridge is in the guest house, where he pours out several of the anti-anxiety pills from Taylors bottle. He quickly takes them, before Taylor comes back from the kitchen.
When Taylor returns, she pours Ridge a glass of wine and encourages him to forget Steffy and Rick for now and try and relax. Ridge cant get the image of Ricks hands all over Steffy, out of his mind. Taylor lets him know shes there for him, no matter what he needs. Ridge kisses her hand.
Stephanie is at Brookes. The two women are arguing over whether Taylor is best qualified to help Ridge through this ordeal. Brooke understands they have a bond, because of Phoebes death. She just thinks Taylors motives are suspect, since shes in love with Ridge too. Stephanie is sure Ridge will respond to Taylor, which means there are some feelings. Brooke just thinks Ridge is vulnerable and Taylor will take advantage of this. Stephanie agrees Ridge is vulnerable, but Taylor gives him something Brooke cant or wont. Stephanie thinks Ridge is much happier with Taylor. Brooke is silent.
At the guest house, Taylor and Ridge sit down to a candle light dinner, she prepared.
Taylor tries to talk to Ridge about not worrying and how there are some tricks to the trade. As she talks, Ridge can barely stay focused. He sips wine, but the pills have obviously affected him. He tells Taylor she always makes sense. Taylor doesnt notice how out of it Ridge is. Ridge reaches for Taylors hand and pays her a compliment. She smiles at Ridge and doesnt realize hes drugged.
At Brookes, Stephanie continues to try and convince Brooke that Ridge needs some one more stable in his life. Brooke argues Ridge doesnt want to be with Taylor in this way. Stephanie plays on Brookes insecurities. Brooke denies she feels insecure. Stephanie asks if this is true, why she is running after Ridge. He needs some space. Stephanie appeals to Brooke, by saying Ridge is on the verge of a breakdown. She knows this isnt what Brooke wants, so she should let Taylor help him. Brooke looks uncertain whether to believe Stephanie or not.
Back at the guest house, Taylor and Ridge continue to talk. Taylor is enjoying the time with Ridge so much, she doesnt pick up on how dazed he appears. Ridge looks at Taylor and his vision is blurred. They continue to make light, playful banter. Ridge says they were always good at entertaining each other. Taylor replies in more ways than one. Ridge looks at her with half closed lids.
Stephanie calls Taylor, while Brooke is out of the room. Shes anxious to hear how things are going. She lets Taylor know shes calling from Brookes.
Taylor is alone in the room and is excited to tell Stephanie things are great. They were a bit tense at first, but now Ridge is saying the most amazing things to her. Its like old times. She and Ridge are connecting. Taylor asks how things are with Brooke. Stephanie tells her Brooke was on the way over, when she got there. Taylor tells her she doesnt want Brooke coming over. Stephanie encourages her to spend the night. Taylor thinks this would be wonderful. Stephanie says this could be the only night Taylor wouldnt have Brookes interference. She instructs Taylor to turn off the phone. Shell speak with her tomorrow.
As Stephanie hangs up, Brooke walks in the room. She asks if that was Taylor on the phone. Stephanie doesnt automatically answer.
At the guest house, Taylor walks over and turns off Ridges cell phone.
Ridge walks in the room and says how great the night has been. Taylor agrees. Ridge tells her how terrific she looks, but she always does. Ridge is still feeling the effects from the drugs. Hes almost out on his feet. He tells Taylor she brings so much peace to him, when shes around. Taylor is happy to hear this. She thinks they have a lot in common. Ridge agrees. Taylor is nervous and tries to tell Ridge shes been thinking about how things used to be. She thinks they have a special bond. Theyre reconnecting on a whole new level. Ridge struggles to follow the conversation. Taylor doesnt notice, since shes not looking at Ridge. Ridge finally comes out of his stupor and tells Taylor its time to go to the bedroom. Taylor smiles and takes his hand. Ridge is almost woozy on his feet. She leads him to the bedroom, unaware of the state hes in.
Brooke is sure Stephanie was talking to Taylor, even though Stephanie doesnt confirm it. Brooke accuses Stephanie of having Taylor rush over there to comfort Ridge. Stephanie asks Brooke if she still plans to go over there. Brooke doesnt answer, but grabs her cell and dials Ridge. The phone goes to voicemail. Stephanie asks her what she plans to tell Ridge. She will keep Rick away from Steffy. Brooke doesnt answer, but looks frustrated. Stephanie tells her nothing has changed. Brooke tells Stephanie shes just trying to reunite Taylor and Ridge, but it wont happen. Ridge doesnt want to be with Taylor. Stephanie asks Brooke if shes sure of this. Right now Ridge doesnt want to be with Brooke. Stephanie says Ridge just needs some time alone. Brooke says hes not going to be, if Stephanie has something to do with it. Stephanie asks Brooke if shes willing to walk away from Rick. Brooke says her son is a good person and she sincerely believes he loves Steffy. Stephanie tells her nothing is going to change tonight. She wont convince Ridge of this. She pleads with Brooke to just give Ridge some time alone. Brooke is at the door, but pauses. Stephanie tells her shell be able to see Ridge at work tomorrow and he may have a different perspective. Brooke listens thoughtfully. She closes the door. She tells Stephanie, when Ridge left he said this wasnt the end. She just has to believe this. She knows they just have to find a way to get through this. Stephanie looks worried.
Ridge and Taylor are in the bedroom. Ridge continues to compliment Taylor. Shes so happy. Shes waited so long for this to happen. Ridge caresses her face, but is still having blurred vision. He tells Taylor he knew things changed at Big Bear. He could see things so differently because of her.
Taylor grabs his hands and leads him outside to look at the stars. She holds his arm and tells him to look up. He spots the North Star. Taylor tells him she likes to think of it as Phoebe. Ridge caresses Taylors arm and tells her she makes it so easy for him to remember Phoebe. Taylor reminisces about when the twins were born. Ridge remembers how they almost lost Taylor. She says she wasnt going to let that happen. Taylor talks about how much the kids adore him and so does she. Ridge listens and stares at Taylor unfocused. He tells her they should go lie down. They head back inside holding hands.
Ridge goes in and crawls on the bed and rolls over on his back. Taylor lies down and snuggles with him. She talks about how shes dreamt of this moment for so long. Her heart is racing. Ridge says his head is spinning. Taylor hovers over him and leans in to kiss him. Ridge responds, but his eyes are half closed. Taylor unbuttons his shirt and continues to kiss him. She lies on top of Ridge, who gets more passionate with Taylors prompting.
