Brooke: Why would you come here to make promises to taylor, when you and i are married? I mean, we love each other, ridge. You do still love me, don’t you? Whatever this is about, I refuse to give up on us.
Steffy: How you doin’, mom? How are you feelin’?
Taylor: Honestly steffy, my head is spinning right now. Between taking your father on a 5k and, crying my eyes out every single time he told me he wanted to spend forever with me, and… I’m just, uh–
Steffy: It’s a lot. It’s a lot. But you and dad are back together. It happened.
Taylor: Yeah. Just when I was giving up on us.
Steffy: You know, the… the world has a, a funny way of working things out when it’s meant to be.
Taylor: Yeah, and I wasn’t so sure about that but, but it happened.
Steffy: It did happen.
Taylor: It happened.
Steffy: You and dad back together after all of this time.
Steffy: You deserve it mom, you really do. Thank you. Oh, my god.
Thomas: This is awesome.
[Chuckles] Oh man, my dad and my mom back together, this has gotta be one of the best days ever.
Eric: Are you absolutely certain about this? There’s not chance you could have misunderstood?
Thomas: Not really, granddad, I mean, it was a video call with my sister and my mom and my dad, and they told me. I could just see their, their love and their happiness.
Donna: Oh. Yeah, happiness at my sister’s expense.
Thomas: What about all the happiness your sister has cost my family?
Eric: Now, we’re not gonna do this.
Thomas: Yeah, you’re right, granddad. Donna and I are never gonna see this the same way. After years of her defending her sister, I’m sure that’s a hard habit to break.
Donna: It’s not a habit… thomas. Look, eric, I’m not just gonna stand here quietly like this and… if what you’re saying is true, my sister’s gonna be devastated.
Thomas: It is true. And brooke’s just gonna have to deal with it, okay? Look, after years and years of– of brooke hurting our family, causing all this heartbreak? Your sister and my father are over.
Steffy: No way. Brooke is here? Oh, no, no, no. I have to go out there–
Taylor: No, no, no, no, no, no, don’t, don’t–
Taylor: This– this is a good thing. I want to see how your father handles this.
Steffy: We all know how brooke operates, she’s gonna do whatever she can to get what she wants.
Taylor: Okay, okay. But your dad just told me the most beautiful things and one of them was that he wanted me to trust that he– he wanted to spend his life with me. And only me. So, we’re gonna trust him.
Brooke: Uh, I– I really don’t understand. I mean, have I done something, maybe, that has upset you? I– I can’t imagine what it could possibly be for you to come here and do this.

I’d like to report
a child in danger.
His name is douglas forrester. For the love of god, ridge, tell me what is going on.
[Brooke sighs] What makes the l’oréal vitamin c serum different?
Eric: I think maybe we should change the subject. I don’t want things to get out of hand. Ah, it’s not gonna get out of hand, granddad. And look, donna understands where I’m coming from, I understand where she’s coming from, and… look. It’s her sister, we’re talking about. She’s always gonna defend her.
Donna: Uh, no. Not always. Not about everything. But when it comes to her marriage with ridge? Look, br– brooke is not just gonna stand by and, and let your mom take the man she loves. That is true, my dad is never more attractive to her than when she’s about to lose him–
Eric: We’re not, we’re not, we’re not gonna do this–
Thomas: It’s true, granddad. I mean, this is, this is the history of what happens. Brooke drives my dad away, she hurts him somehow and then she tries to pull him back in– it’s like a game for her.
Donna: Okay, I don’t see it that way at all. But for your granddad’s sake, I think we should just agree to disagree.
Eric: Thank you.
Thomas: That’s completely fine. I’m in too good a mood to let this bring me down.
Eric: Well, no one intends to do that. Look. I understand completely how, how happy it makes you to have your parents back together again, I do.
Thomas: Right. But you’ll always have a soft spot for brooke.
Eric: We were married, we share a history. We share children. I’m very fond of her but I’m fond of taylor, too.
Thomas: Oh. Anyway, it’s finally happened. Brooke’s days with my dad are over.
Donna: You know, I bet brooke is in aspen right now with your father, as we speak.
Thomas: She shouldn’t be.
Donna: She has every right to defend and protect her marriage, thomas.
Thomas: It’s hard to defend and protect something when you keep attacking it. But you know what? I get it. Logans are always gonna stick together.
Eric: Brooke is donna’s sister, thomas. Of course.
Thomas: That makes everything brooke does okay? I mean, who’s side are you on, granddad?
Eric: It’s not about being on one side or the other. Look, the problem here is that I don’t think we should be interfering at all in this situation.
Thomas: Isn’t that exactly what brooke is doing? She’s interfering with my dad trying to be with my mother.
Donna: Okay, what– what do you not get, thomas? Ridge is still married to my sister.
Thomas: It’s over between them, donna.
Donna: You know, honestly thomas, I don’t think it’ll ever really be over between your father and my sister. There’s just too much love there.
Thomas: And there’s a lot of heartache, too, of brooke’s own making, you can’t even deny that.
Donna: More to the point. My sister would never deny that. She’s always owned up to her mistakes.
Thomas: Sure, she owns up to it after everyone else finds out about it and makes it known. You know–
[Phone rings] Oh. It’s steffy. Hey sis, how’re the love birds?
Steffy: That’s why I’m calling. Are you alone?
Thomas: Uh, no, I’m actually here with granddad and donna. Here, I’ll put you on speaker.
Eric: Steffy, hi. How are things in aspen?
Steffy: Well, it was wonderful.
Thomas: “Was.” Uh, what’s wrong?
Steffy: Brooke. She’s here in aspen. She’s with dad right now.
How did she find out dad
was here with mom and me?
Donna: I told her.
Steffy: Why, donna? Why do you have to get involved with everything? Of course, you’re going to do anything for your sister.
Donna: She’s family, steffy.
Steffy: I have family, too. A family that was pulled apart because of your sister. My dad’s here because he wants to see my mom. So, my father’s days with brooke are over.
Donna: Maybe, maybe not. But one thing you, your mother and brother should never do, ever, ever count out brooke and ridge’s love for each other.
Brooke: Just say something, ridge. I don’t really like this not knowing.
Ridge: Not knowing what?
Brooke: Not knowing why you hopped on a plane and you flew to aspen without even a word to me about it.
Ridge: That’s it? That’s– that’s what you’re upset about?
Brooke: I’m upset because
[Sighs] Steffy, thomas and taylor, they have been trying to break us up for a long time, now. They’ve been playing on your emotions and they’ve been pressuring you–
Ridge: Wow. This has nothing to do with them. Yes! This has everything to do with them. They have worn you down, ridge!
Ridge: Look, what are you– I don’t–
Brooke: Look, I’m not gonna let this happen. I’m not.
Ridge: You’re not– you’re not gonna let it happen?
Brooke: Whatever you said to her, whatever promises were made, it doesn’t matter. Because I see the way you look at me ridge, you still love me and I love you. And that’s the way it’s always going to be, so please, just… tell me, what is it? I mean, is it bill, is it deacon? Is it, what? Something else?
[Thrilling music plays]
Brooke: Okay, I– I don’t care, whatever it is. We’re going to get home and we’re gonna work through this and we’re gonna work through it together.
Ridge: We’re not working through anything. My mind’s made up.
Brooke: What do you mean it’s made up?
Ridge: How– how do you not see this? We’re finally here. Everything’s caught up with us.
Brooke: Oh, gosh, I– i don’t know what you’re talking about. Okay, maybe this is about your children and how you weren’t there–
Ridge: It’s still not about them. It’s so much more complicated than that.
Brooke: Well then, what? What is it! Tell me what brought you to this point!
If you have this…
Thomas: It’s not gonna change anything, brooke’s desperate attempt to keep my parents apart.
Donna: It’s not desperate, thomas. It’s love. Brooke and ridge are in love.
Thomas: Yes, well, my mother loves my father but she doesn’t betray him over and over again.
Eric: Well, ridge always forgives brooke.
Thomas: He shouldn’t be with someone he always has to forgive, kay? I mean, at some point in a relationship like that he’s gotta look at it and say, “I don’t– i don’t want the lies, I don’t want the betrayal anymore. I want to be with someone more like…”
Eric: Like your mother.
Thomas: Yeah. Well, that’s why he’s with her right now. That’s why he’s distancing himself from brooke. Brooke just brings him chaos. And with my mother he has peace. And you’ve gotta know how much that means to him. But. You still believe in brooke and my dad.
Donna: We both do, thomas.
Eric: Thomas, I admire your mother. In no way am I diminishing how important she is in ridge’s life. But I agree with donna. You cannot count out ridge and brooke. And I think right now, your sister and your mother are learning the same thing.
Steffy: I still think I should go out there.
Taylor: No. No, no, no, no. This is between your father and brooke–
Steffy: If donna hadn’t told brooke that dad was here–
Taylor: It doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter. Your father would have had to face her at some point–
Steffy: But then, she wouldn’t have spoiled things for you two.
Taylor: She hasn’t spoiled anything. Yet. I mean, would I have preferred if she stayed in L.A., Sure. But, you know, this is what brooke does, she bring the drama. Your father knows that better than anyone.
Steffy: She’s gonna do everything to get to dad. But you’re right, you’re right, it’s not gonna work. Dad made his decision and he wants to be with you. It’s not gonna work, no matter how hard brooke tries.
Brooke: Whatever you’re holding in, just say it. Say it, so we can deal with it. Please.
Ridge: I’m sorry. This is where I need to be.
Brooke: No, no, this is not where you need to be, you need to be home with me, so we can work through whatever is going on, here. Okay, obviously I have done something. That’s why you’re here. But, for the life of me, I can’t figure out what it is. Ridge, if you’re not ready to talk about it, that’s okay, I’m not gonna pressure you. All you need to do is get on that plane with me and we’ll fly home, together, and you and I can work through this. Together. That’s what we do, we can get through anything. I believe that. Tell me you believe that, too. What’s the #1 retinol brand
Thomas: No one knows better than I do, the hold that brooke had on my dad. But, it has to end sometime. And today’s the day.
Eric: Now, brooke’s with your dad, right now.
Thomas: Yeah, and she can tell herself they are destined to be together all she wants. But my dad believes differently, otherwise, he wouldn’t be in aspen right now, committing to a life with my mother.
Donna: Okay. I’m just gonna say this: Your mother, she is a remarkable woman. But, the true love of your father’s life is and always will be my sister. Can we just, can we go for a ride, please. I think, um… I think I just need to get out of here.
Eric: All right, come on. Come on.
Taylor: Yup-yup, uh-huh?
> Steffy: Are you okay? I’ve– I think I am. Yup, I’m just, um, uh…
Steffy: You just wish you could lock brooke in a gondola?
Taylor: Oh, honey, I’m–
Steffy: What’re you thinking?
Taylor: I’m thinking, um… okay. I believe your father. I want to believe your father and… honey, this is why I– I didn’t want to do this again. Your father just chased me all over the mountain and convinced me that he wanted me in his life forever, and that he had changed. And the thought that he might be returning to brooke, it’s–
Steffy: That’s not gonna happen. It’s not. I know it feels like brooke always wins but dad’s eyes are open and he sees what he could have with you. And that’s a life filled with happiness, no more tears, no more betrayals. You bring so much goodness in his life and a love, a love that brooke knows nothing about. You’re everything to dad. You’re everything he deserves. It’s not brooke, mom? Okay? It’s never been brooke. Okay?
Brooke: I know you still believe in us, ridge, our love. It’s what holds us together whenever anything tries to come between us. It’s what’s helped us overcome all our challenges in the past and it’s gonna help us overcome this, too.
[Ridge clears throat] Like I said, I don’t care what you said to taylor. I know you feel a pull towards your other family and I get that, I respect that but you. Are. My. Husband. And you’re gonna come home with me and we’re gonna work through this together, like we always do. I know you, ridge. I know there’s something that you’re not saying and I wish you would just, just say it, just–
Ridge: Why– why are you doin’ this? Why are you– why are you pretending that you don’t know what this is?
Brooke: I don’T.
Ridge: Can you just be honest and, and say it? I just need to hear you say it.
Brooke: Say what? I… I don’t know what it is you want me to say? I mean… what do you think I did?
