Bill wakes Brooke up with coffee. Brooke realizes she fell asleep on the couch. Bill tells her she must have been exhausted from Stephanie’s party and gives her the coffee. Brooke thanks him for letting her stay the night. Bill says he couldn’t let her go home seeing the circumstances. Brooke smiles at him.
Hope says that she can’t believe Ridge didn’t show up to Stephanie’s party. Rick says Ridge left their mom on their honeymoon and turned the company over to Thomas why would he do the right thing now. Hope says because Stephanie is dying and says her mom thought that he’d really be at the party. Rick says Brooke will be okay and so will she. Hope says thank goodness for him and Caroline because at least someone in their family is happy. Rick tells Hope he told Caroline he loves her and she said she loves him back. Hope is overjoyed by the news.
Caroline is unable to concentrate as she is too busy thinking of Rick. Thomas calls her out on it and asks her if she wants to make any changes to the designs. She says no they are good. Thomas tells the models that the sewing room is expecting them before turning to Caroline again. He tries to stroke her arm but she tells him he can’t do that anymore confusing him. Hope tells her brother that she is so happy for him. Rick says it’s not the same as her being happy for herself though. Hope says he’s going to have to give her a little bit of time for that.
Hope says when she saw her dad again she was so happy but now he’s gone and she lost Liam and Katie is missing and her mom is upset too. She says at least her mother has Will to distract her from her misery and says she wishes she had something to keep her mind off things too. Rick tells her she does; the collection. He says Thomas put him on it with her so they are going to make it wonderful. He complains again about Thomas being in power. He says in time he will be CEO because Thomas is a bonehead when it comes to running the company. He says in the meantime he has Caroline and Hope for The Future to help him succeed.
Thomas asks if this is because he’s CEO. Caroline says it’s never a good idea to date you boss but she’s not available. Thomas asks if something has changed between her and Rick to make her say that. Caroline falls silent. Bill asks Taylor to tell him if she’s heard from Katie. Taylor tells him she won’t tell her where she is. Bill says he is going to find her and bring her home no matter what.
Hope moves to leave and Rick asks where she is going. She says she has to work on her line to keep her mind off things remember? Rick tells her to remember what Stephanie said: no moping. He tells her to keep her chin up because things will get better. He tells her to look at Caroline and him. Hope says it’s so good to see him happy. Rick says he wants to see her smile too and asks her to come out with him tonight. Hope tells him he doesn’t have to feel responsible for her broken heart. Rick looks guilty as he still hasn’t told Hope he lied about Liam sleeping with Steffy the night before their wedding which was what led her to break up with him.
Caroline says she doesn’t want to hurt Thomas. Thomas asks her what Rick did for things to change between them. He asks if he made a new romantic gesture. Caroline tells him that Rick told her he loves her, Thomas doesn’t look impressed. Caroline tries to alleviate her guilt by telling him he’s a great guy and he has so much going for him. Thomas says no truth is he shouldn’t even be thinking about dating right now. He says running Forrester is a huge responsibility and it requires his full attention. Thomas says it has to be his full priority. Caroline asks what about their line sounding worried.
Thomas says the Caroline collection will be Forrester’s new calling card. Caroline smiles in relief. Disgusted, Thomas asks if she really thought just because Rick and her are together he’d take away her line. He says that’s not the kind of guy he is and she says she knows. He says he made a commitment to this line and to donate 5% of profits of to her charity not to make her date him. He says he told her he has a vision for the future of this company and she is still a big part of it. Caroline smiles at Thomas.
Taylor tells Bill that if he chases Katie then she will run and if he makes it look like she is helping him then Katie will never open up to her again. Bill tells her not to tell him to be patient but Taylor tells him Katie is suffering from postpartum depression and will eventually come back home. Bill asks her when and from where. He says he gets that she’s scared because the thought of raising Will alone scares him too but he says Katie needs to be here. He says if they have problems they will work on them together. Bill implies though that if Katie doesn’t come back soon then he may not be able to forgive her and move on. Taylor warns him not to let his frustrations let him forget what he knows is true about Katie. She tells him not to get bitter and careless. She says this is a critical time for him and Katie. He tells her not to tell him that but to say it to Katie. Taylor says she can’t talk to him about all this because Katie is his patient.
Taylor takes a deep breath and says she’s just going to be honest with him. She says she’s concerned about all the time he is spending with Brooke. Bill says Brooke is helping with Will and that she is his aunt. Taylor says she has no doubts about that but none of them are in a stable place right now. She says he is vulnerable and confused and knowing Brooke’s history he shouldn’t be spending so much time with her. She tells him he has to be really careful. Brooke arrives and asks her what on earth she is saying to Bill. Taylor doesn’t look happy to see her. Taylor is stunned to learn that Brooke spent the night at Bill’s. Brooke justifies herself by saying she didn’t want to be alone after Stephanie’s party and asks Taylor if she understands that.
Taylor says she finds it strange that she came here of all places. Brooke says she was drained and she fell asleep. Taylor asks if that happens often with her. Bill realizes where Taylor is going with this and assures her Brooke isn’t making a play for him. Taylor tells them Katie came by her house last night and was desperate to know if Ridge came to the party. Brooke says that’s because she knows she loves Ridge but Taylor suggests that Katie wants Brooke and Bill together. Bill leaves with Will and when he does Brooke orders Taylor quite rudely not to tell Katie to race home to save her husband from her. Taylor looks as if she knows she’s hit a nerve on Brooke.
Rick tells Hope to look at life beyond Liam but Hope says she’s not sure she will be able to put him in her past. She says she still thinks they could have worked it out if he just hadn’t slept with Steffy the night before their wedding. Rick remembers how he lied to Hope about that as Hope keeps talking about how she was so close to marrying Liam. She says and it didn’t happen and she doesn’t get it and is just really confused about it. Rick says he’s sorry and hugs Hope looking guilty but soon Caroline shows up and his guilt vanishes. When Hope leaves Caroline asks him he told Hope about his lie but he covers it up by saying he doesn’t want to hurt Hope. Caroline tells him how understanding Thomas was about them and he downplays that by saying Thomas had no choice but to accept it gracefully. Rick and Caroline share a kiss.
Brooke says that there is nothing wrong with her being here. Taylor says she never said there was. Brooke says she told Bill to be careful around her. She tells Taylor that Bill can’t do this alone prompting Taylor to ask if he should be doing it with her. Brooke says Bill and her have been dealing with this for days. Taylor says if she listened to how she was talking to Bill she was acting like they were a couple. Brooke protests saying that she is going to be there for him until Katie comes back. Brooke says that she is supposed to be helping her sister and instead she’s making up nonsense. She says this isn’t even about Bill is it and intentionally brings up hoe she didn’t take Ridge from her and he chose her to hurt her. Taylor doesn’t look happy with how out of line Brooke is when it comes to her own indiscretions.
Rick tries to taunt Thomas over Caroline picking him but Thomas shuts him down by saying with how busy he is running Forrester he wouldn’t have had the time anyway. He says Rick on the other hand as a lot more time for romance. Rick says he has big plans for Hope’s line and Thomas tells him to run them by him first. Thomas says he’s serious about moving this company forward. He says he had the vision before but now he has the authority to do it. Rick says and he won’t let anyone forget that and Thomas says yes he won’t. He says he wants to make the company relevant and exciting. He says people need to know that changes are being made and that Taylor Forrester’s family is calling the shots now. Rick says a whole new breed of Foresters and Thomas says yes, Steffy and him are going to take control and raise this company higher than it’s ever been.
Taylor tells Brooke that she has to be able to see why she has reason to be concerned. Brooke says nothing is going on here but Taylor, finally sick of Brooke pretending she’s crazy for stating the obvious says that she acted the same way when she went after Eric and Thorne and Deacon, her own daughter’s husband. Brooke slaps her not wanting to remember her own past and mistakes and Taylor looks back at her with angry, hateful eyes.
