Steffy: Brooke said what?

Taylor: That thomas is dangerous, and that he hasn’t changed one bit.

Steffy: Oh, my god. When will brooke let up?

Taylor: I don’t know. I don’t know. But these attacks on your brother’s character are just getting worse and worse.

Steffy: Who does she think she is? Like, calm down, woman. Oh, my gosh.

Steffy: Look, it’s fine. She can come after me all she wants, bring it on. But to come after my kids? It’s like she’s looking for things to pick apart.

Steffy: Brooke thrives on conflict, and she’s always had issues with thomas and me.

Taylor: It’s ridiculous that she’s claiming that thomas is a danger to his son.

Hope: What do you mean? I have seen thomas make strides in his relationship with douglas, so…

Brooke: He’s convinced everybody that he’s turned his life around. But the other side is still there. I know, I’ve seen it.

Hope: Okay, so then what exactly happened?

Brooke: Honey, I’m sorry. I know you don’t wanna believe the worst in thomas.

Hope: No, I don’T. But I also wanna know if my son is at risk. So, what are you saying? You said that you saw thomas with a knife around douglas?

Liam: Excuse me? What is this about thomas and a knife?

Thomas: Somebody is clearly overreacting.

Ridge: I told brooke there’s nothing to worry about.

Thomas: You know, I was, uh, I was cutting an apple with a knife, dad, like anyone would do.

Ridge: All right, she just felt that the blade was maybe too close to the kid.

Thomas: I’m not giving it to him, letting him throw against the wall or something.

Ridge: I know. I know all that. But you know brooke, and she doesn’t trust you yet.

Thomas: Clearly, if she’s thinking about calling child protective services on me.

Steffy: Tell me every word out of brooke’s mouth.

Taylor: Well, I can only go off of what thomas told me, and, oof.

Steffy: Why does she keep doing this to him? Thomas is proving himself every single day.

Taylor: She’s convinced that thomas is emotionally unstable, that douglas shouldn’t be with him.

Steffy: She needs to worry about her daughter. Hope’s unwillingness to compromise. They share custody.

Taylor: You’re right. You’re right, none of this is okay. She’s making thomas doubt himself, making him think he’s not capable of being a good father.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh.

Liam: Okay, so, thomas had a knife.

Brooke: Yes.

Liam: And, what?

Brooke: Well, it wasn’t just a butter knife from the kitchen. I mean, this was a good sized knife, and it was sharp, and he was using it to cut an apple.

Liam: Well, that’s not creepy.

Brooke: The thing is, he shouldn’t have been doing that right by douglas. Douglas was sitting right there.

Liam: So, douglas is just– is sitting there. And then thomas pulls out a knife and starts cut– like, what was going through his head at that moment?

Brooke: I don’t know. It’s not just the knife. I mean, I have doubts about just how healthy and well-adjusted thomas really is.

Thomas: You really think brooke would do that?

Ridge: I shouldn’t have mentioned anything to you.

Thomas: Report me for child endangerment?

Ridge: No, no one’s gonna report anybody. Because it’s not necessary. You are an amazing father to that little boy.

Thomas: Thanks, dad. I mean, it does mean a lot hearing you say that. I just– I just can’T. I just wish that brooke would stay out of our lives for good.

Thomas: Brooke really has no respect for me as a father.

Ridge: Yeah, I see it. And I’m sorry. You worked so hard to get here. So hard, and everyone can see it. Everyone but brooke.

[ Knocking on door ]

Charlie: Hey, boss. Uh, you were asking if– if brooke had left the building?

Ridge: Yeah.

Charlie: Well, she’s in the design office with– with hope and liam.

Ridge: Okay. Thank you, charlie.

Charlie: You bet. I’m here for you.

Ridge: Charlie.

Charlie: Yeah. Yeah?

Ridge: Would you mind getting the door, please.

Charlie: Oh, sure.

Ridge: That’s your head of security.

Thomas: Yeah. Um, I just hate that brooke is giving you all this grief.

Ridge: I just want some peace for my family.

Thomas: That… that’s honestly what would be best for douglas.

Ridge: I know.

Thomas: I don’t know. I just– I can’t stand the idea that anyone would think that my house isn’t safe for him. Like, look, I’m gonna go home. I’m gonna make sure that– that it’s the safest place that it possibly can be.

Ridge: Come here. I believe in you.

Thomas: That means more than you can know.

Ridge: You put your son first, that’s all you can do.

Thomas: I just, um… I don’t know why brooke has to always come in and start drama and make the whole situation just– blow it out of proportion. You know what? I don’t need to blow up on you at all. It’s just, uh– I’ll just put it behind me. You know, actually, you should probably start heading over to the house ’cause douglas is waiting for you. Spend time with his grandpa.

Ridge: I’ve been looking forward to that all day.

Thomas: And then you can see just how safe that house is for a little boy.

Ridge: I don’t have to go over there to see that. I see the smile on his face every day.

Thomas: Oh. I know he’s looking forward to hanging out with you. He always has a great time.

Ridge: You always have a great time.

Thomas: Hey, I’m going to stay here and finish up some work, and then I’ll head over and meet you there.

Ridge: Sounds good.

Thomas: Uh, dad? I just wanna say it means so much knowing that you believe in me. I mean, I wouldn’t be the man that I am without you.

Taylor: Thomas has completely changed himself for the better.

Steffy: We know that. Dad knows that. But, brooke? She keeps making a case out of every little detail. Thomas is holding a knife in front of his son? It’s not like he’s waving it around in front of his face.

Taylor: No, no. But brooke only sees her own made up version of thomas.

Steffy: Partly because it benefits her daughter. We all know that hope wants full control over douglas, and brooke is just stirring the pot.

Taylor: Thomas has worked so hard to redeem himself, to rebuild his life. And brooke refuses to give him credit.

Steffy: She doesn’t give thomas a fair chance.

Taylor: You know, it breaks my heart for thomas. And also for ridge.

Steffy: But what does that say about the woman he’s married to? The more brooke condemns thomas, the closer she gets to losing dad.

Brooke: You should’ve seen the way thomas was glaring at me while holding that knife.

Liam: So– okay, wait. So, just wait. So, at first, he’s just, like, totally dismissive of you when you ask him to put the knife away, and then he proceeds to, like, taunt you with it?

Brooke: Whatever his intentions were, it was very unsettling.

Hope: Well, I’m just relieved to hear that douglas wasn’t fully aware of it.

Liam: Yeah, that we know of.

Brooke: Okay, so the knife was very concerning, but what’s even more concerning is the fact that thomas is not bringing douglas home.

Hope: Okay, well, mom, douglas has asked to spend more time with his father, so…

Brooke: Honey, he’s a kid, and he’s at a very impressionable age. And of course, he wants to spend time with his father, but unfortunately, thomas is not a healthy father figure. I mean, think of all the horrible things that he’s done.

Liam: Kinda hard to forget.

Brooke: He’s been devious, unpredictable and he may have fooled some people, but not me. I’m gonna do everything I can to keep douglas safe. Okay everyone,

Steffy: Nothing could justify brooke bashing my brother.

Taylor: No, her perception of thomas is just a byproduct of her own warped sense of reality.

Steffy: She’s always like, “how can I twist this in a way that benefits me?”

Taylor: It’s so frustrating.

Steffy: Beyond. Brooke is way off base.

Taylor: You know, she will never love anything of mine.

Steffy: Except your husband.

Taylor: That’s a good point. You know, she has always resented both of you because you’re a part of me.

Steffy: Because we’re dad’s first family. His real family. We’re like a living, breathing connection of you two, and she can’t stand it.

Taylor: But brooke shouldn’t hold that against you.

Steffy: Well, she does.

Taylor: Yeah.

Steffy: Even if she doesn’t realize it. Thomas, he’s completely changed. He’s so devoted to his son.

Taylor: His whole world revolves around douglas.

Steffy: He’s not even dating anyone.

Taylor: No, he doesn’T. He– he works all day. And then he goes home to eric’s just to be with his son.

Steffy: And brooke finds fault in that. She’s digging her own grave.

Taylor: She is, but– but I don’t– I don’t know if ridge will ever see it like that.

Steffy: This time, it’s different. Mark my words. If brook continues to see thomas as some screwed up loser who doesn’t know how to parent his child, that’s gonna push dad away real quick.

Douglas: Checkmate.

Ridge: What?

Douglas: Yeah.

Ridge: Really?

Douglas: Did you see that?

[ Sighing ]

Ridge: How many is that?

Douglas: Today? Three times in a row. But the running tally is grandpa–

Ridge: The great one.

Douglas: Okay, the great one, five. Douglas–

Ridge: The apprentice.

Douglas: The apprentice. Come on. Douglas, 67.

Ridge: 67? Just remember who taught you.

Douglas: Come on, you don’t have to let me win.

Ridge: I’m not letting you win.

Douglas: “There’s an art to it.” That’s what you said when you were teaching me.

Ridge: I know, well you’re an artist. Not just at this, but– your drawings are amazing. Little picasso.

Douglas: Yeah. You know, dad’s been helping me lately.

Ridge: He’s a talented man.

Douglas: Yeah, runs in the family.

Ridge: Does now. How do you like living here? With your dad and my dad?

Douglas: Yeah, it’s awesome. You know, I’m having– having such a good time.

Ridge: We all love you very much. All right, set ’em up, come on. Not losing again.

Douglas: Okay.

Ridge: 67…

Hope: Well, thank you for coming with me to get coffee. Well, of course, far be it from me to keep you from your caffeine fix. Besides, my meeting got pushed back, so. You’re stuck with me a little while longer.

Hope: I guess I’ll have to deal.

Liam: I know.

Hope: Ugh, no…

Liam: What? Do I smell?

Hope: No! My mom forgot her purse, which means she will be back soon to retrieve it, I’m sure. Speaking of, um… so, what do you make of what she had to share?

Liam: She could’ve shared nothing at all, and my position would remain the same. I think it’s time for douglas to come home.

Hope: I miss him, too, liam.

Liam: Yeah, so does beth, and we keep trying to explain it to her, and I’m sure she’s super weirded out and confused by now.

Hope: No, I know. I know, but I don’t want to force douglas if he isn’t ready yet.

Liam: Listen, okay– let me agree with you about something. If I’m a little kid, being over at eric’s is probably awesome, right? All the nooks and crannies and places to explore, I’m sure he’s having a great time, but home is home, and home is with us.

Hope: I want nothing more than to be able to walk in that room and tuck my son into bed. But at the same time, I don’t wanna be the one that impedes on all this progress that he is making with his father. You know, and I’ve been over there and I’ve seen–

Liam: Yeah, well, don’t get me started on that. I know. Listen. Bottom line, bottom line, douglas can go over there literally any time he wants with the appropriate supervision. But even now that– thomas is carrying a knife around? Like, that does not sit well with me.

Hope: Me neither.

Liam: Okay, okay. So don’t let thomas intimidate you. You have to make it clear that douglas has to return to his normal waking life, which is home with us. Like, are we– are we still on the same page about that? And now please welcome ana montoya.

Taylor: You know, brooke feels like her marriage is under fire, like she’s not the one burning it to the ground. So, she’s attacking my children.

Steffy: Dad’s not gonna put up with that much longer.

Taylor: I don’t know, steffy, come on. How many times have we said that? I know that you want your father and me back together, and you want your family whole. I do, too. But, honey, it can’t just be because of brooke’s toxic drama. It has to be because your father really wants to be with us.

Steffy: I get that.

Taylor: Okay.

Steffy: But mom, you have to have faith. His whole demeanor changes when he’s with you, when he’s around the kids. I know you see that. And it seems like dad’s a little more present these days. It’s like he’s trying to make up for all that lost time. And it seems like he’s been more caring and thoughtful, especially over these last few months.

Taylor: That’s true. You know, your father is– is so proud of you and thomas. He really is, and… oh, he loves his grandchildren so much. He’d do anything for you.

Steffy: This whole knife overreaction… implying that thomas is a risk to douglas? Are you kidding me? That’s ridiculous. That’s a new low for brooke. I see dad’s eyes opening. He wants to hang around us more. He wants to be with you, mom.

Liam: I understand that you don’t want this to turn into a giant custody battle.

Hope: It’s the last thing that any of us needs right now.

Liam: Yes, I know. Granted, that would not be ideal. But, your mom still has a point. When it comes to somebody like thomas, we have to be extra vigilant, right? You don’t just– with somebody like that, you don’t just take their word for it that suddenly, they’re a happy, healthy, well-adjusted, psychologically normal, sensible person, right? I mean, the– the kind of– of issues, of deep-seated psychological issues that thomas had or still has. I mean, that, that– that stuff takes years– years in therapy to unravel, if it can be unravelled at all. For all we know, thomas is pulling one over on all of us.

Hope: Okay. The story with the knife is disconcerting, but you also can’t deny the fact that that thomas’s overall behavior has shown improvement.

Liam: You’ve said that before. And I don’t wanna do it all again. In any case, we can’t just ignore what your mom witnessed, right? Yeah, I know douglas is having fun over there, but enough is enough. He needs to be home. He needs to be sleeping in his own bed. He needs to be sitting at the dinner table with his sister. He needs to return to his routine. Children thrive on routine, all right? It’s not like he doesn’t get to see thomas anytime he wants. All we want is for him to come home.

Brooke: Liam is right, and the only way we can guarantee douglas’s safety, is if he’s in your care. So, I am going to do everything I possibly can to get douglas back to you, liam and beth. Where he belongs.

Douglas: Got your bishop.

Ridge: No. How did– no. How did that happen?

Douglas: Great-granddad taught you how to play?

Ridge: Yeah, he did. I blame him.

Douglas: Maybe we could do a tournament tonight. You know, you, me, great-granddad, dad and maybe even donna, if she wants to.

Ridge: Donna? Yeah, I’m not– I’m not sure that donna knows how to play chess. You– you like being here, don’t you? In this house? Everyone loves having you here, and they just wanna make sure this is the most loving home you could be in. You got two homes, really, right? You got hope’s as well.

Douglas: Yeah, I really like it here.

Ridge: Good.

Douglas: Okay.

[Knocking on door]

Ridge: All right, give me one second. Hey, do not move any– any of these pieces. I know where I am.

Douglas: I’m not gonna.

Ridge: All right. Hi, can I help you?

Woman: Thomas forrester?

Ridge: Uh, no, he’s– he’s not here. Who are you?

Man: We’re from cps, child protective services.

Ridge: What?

Woman: We’re here to investigate a case regarding douglas forrester.

Thomas: Hey, how are you? Hey, dad. What– what’s going on?

Ridge: They’re from child protective services.

Thomas: Child protection services?

Ridge: They’re here about douglas.
