Thomas thinks that it all makes so much sense now. He has been experiencing these emotions that he never has before. It is all because of Douglas. It's because he is his son. Ridge had her keep it from him. Caroline claims they decided that together. Thomas doesn't understand why she is always defending him. Caroline reminds him that he is her husband. Thomas tells her that he isn't Douglas's father. The whole world thinks that Douglas is the new born prince of King Ridge but he isn't. He understands that she is committed but Ridge has put his stake in his new born son and wants him pushed away. Thomas asks if that is what Caroline wants too.
Katie doesnt think that Thomas would ever do anything to hurt Douglas. This is all new to Thomas he needs a minute to process it. Ridge doesnt think this would have happened if it werent for her. He wonders why she couldn't have stayed out of it.
Brooke walks into Rick's office and wonders if she can work in there. Rick reminds her that she doesn't have to ask. Brooke wonders if she pulled him out of deep important thoughts. Rick was involved in the same as usual. He is going to get out of that. Brooke asks what Ridge is up to now. Rick isn't sure. He knows it is something. Brooke doesn't think that it is smart to just assume. Rick reminds Brooke that she knows Ridge. He always has something up his sleeve. He has some secret that is sure to come out.
Ridge cannot believe that Thomas just took Douglas. Katie still thinks that Thomas had a right to know. Ridge doesn't think it was her choice to make. Ridge asks why she talked to her doctor. Katie thought he looked upset. Ridge feels that if she thought that then she should have gone to him. Instead she went to him and then screwed things up with Caroline. Katie has to wonder how this will effect Caroline now that Thomas knows.
Thomas wants to know what happened. He assumes that Ridge guiled her into this. He can tell that Ridge was determined to keep this from him. Caroline is Douglas's mother. She could have insisted on telling him. Thomas knows she didn't. Caroline agreed with Ridge. It was best for their family. He has to understand that this was what was best for them. Thomas gets it. It was because Ridge wanted a family and always gets what he wants. Thomas needs to know what Caroline wants now that the secret is out.
Rick thinks that Eric is a great man except for his weakness. He always allows Ridge to get away with anything. Brooke remembers times that Eric supported him. Brooke knows there were recent times that this had happened. Rick was CEO until Ridge wanted his job back. It took a couple weeks for him to get inside of Eric's head for it to happen. It isn't fair to him or Thorn. They are his real sons. Ridge is a Marone. It is a disgrace that a Marone is running all things Forrester. Rick doesn't think it will last for much longer.
Thomas asks if Caroline really wants to keep this massive lie and tell the world that Ridge is Douglas's father. Thomas thinks the truth is best. Caroline guesses that they can have a press conference. Then the press will turn it into a scandal. They will have a field day with it. This will follow around Douglas for the rest of his life. When she got pregnant Ridge made the best choice for their family. She stands by it now and then. Thomas asks if she is really going to make him deny his son. Caroline doesn't want him to claim him. Thomas doesn't blame her. He blames his father. Caroline begs him not to say that. She had an equal say in this. Thomas asks if the exact same thing happened that night but Ridge was never in her life would she have come to him and told him that she was pregnant with their child. Caroline cannot answer that. She cannot change the past. Ridge thinks that they can't go back. Thomas knows it is the world according to Ridge and she wants him to keep this secret. Caroline believes it is the only option.
Brooke would like to give Rick a little motherly advice. Rick says that it is always welcome. Brooke wants him to bide his time. He has everything he has always wanted. He is married to a woman that loves him very much and a child on the way. She promises that he will be winning one day soon. Rick explains that Maya is enough for him and he is so blessed with a child. Brooke asks why he is so caught up on Ridge. Rick is because he is Eric Forrester Jr. He should be CEO and living in the family home. Instead everything has been taken by a Marone.
Ridge believes telling Thomas wasn't the best choice. Katie tells him yet again that Thomas is the father. Ridge doesnt think it was the best choice for the family. Katie asks if he really believes that. She wonders if he has ever felt guilt. Caroline can see that he has changed. Ridge thinks that Katie is being impossible. Katie promises that everything will work out for the best. Ridge hopes so because Douglas is his son.
Thomas sits down next to Douglas. Caroline knows that Douglas is Thomas's son and he loves him but he is just a little baby. She wants him to have a happy and carefree life. He is already going to have a stressful life because he is half Forrester and Spencer. Thomas isn't sure what he is thinking. Caroline promises that he will have complete access to him. Ridge would never keep his son from him. Thomas realizes that this is his son. Caroline knows he is his son. Caroline loves Thomas so much for helping him bring him into this world. All their lives are so much better now that he is here. Caroline wants Douglas to know him. She wants him to learn from him and love from him. Thomas asks if he has to do this as his brother. Caroline believes they can do this as a family. They can do what is best for Douglas. Caroline wants him to say yes. He needs to agree to keep things as they have been.
Rick still cannot get over Ridge taking down Maya's picture. He wonders what gives him the right. Rick remembers. It is Eric. Brooke feels that he can understand why Eric would prefer to have Stephanie on the wall. Rick never should have left. He played right into his hands. Rick believes that is how shady he is. Stephanie lied about Ridge's paternity and Rick has been paying for it his entire life. That is what defines Ridge today. Someone who controls everything and everyone in it.
Katie wouldn't anticipate the worst. Caroline might be able to convince Thomas to leave things the way they are. Ridge wonders about in the future if Thomas gets attached and doesn't see him as his brother. Katie thinks that they will work it out. Ridge wonders if she really thinks that. Katie does. Katie understands how deep the bond with the father is. It is out now. Caroline and Thomas are parents together. She just has to wonder what impact that will have.
Thomas should have been told sooner. Caroline believes it was the only way. She is married to Ridge and they were hoping and trying desperately for a family. That night with him was complicated. So she was on board to keep the secret. She is so sorry. He has every right to know that he was Douglas's father. Caroline cannot give back the time that was lost but he does have the future. He needs him and his advice. Caroline claims that they want him to be in his life. Thomas needs to be promised not to be pushed out. This won't be easy. Caroline knows. He is going to need a lot of help with this. Ridge won't be happy with him leaning on her. Caroline will take care of this. She knows this is a hard choice but it is the right one. Caroline thinks him. She hugs him. She claims that he won't regret it. Thomas tells her that they made a boy. Caroline knows. Douglas thinks he is so cute. Caroline holds Douglas. Caroline tells him that he took a ride with Thomas and he is safe with both of them. Caroline lets him hold Douglas.
