Katie is sure that Ridge will handle it as sensitively as possible. Katie thinks that at least there wont be any more secrets about that night and Thomas. Caroline feels that night should have never happened. Katie asks how it happened. She knows that she has always been loyal to Ridge. Carolines life revolves around Ridge and Douglas and if this goes over badly her whole life will fall apart.

Ridge thinks he understands. Thomas asks if he is serious. Thomas doesnt think they understand. Ridge feels that he needs to put the welfare of the company is at stake.
