Douglas: Keep sketching like this, douglas. You can stay up as late as you want. Maybe even quit school.
[ Beeping ]
Thomas: Keep sketching like this, douglas. You can stay up as late as you want. Maybe even quit school.
[ Laughs ]
Thomas: Are you still playing with that app? I said enough.
Ridge: What app?
Douglas: Oh, it’s really awesome, granddad. It lets you see something–
Thomas hey, I said enough already. Kid’s driving me nuts with this thing.
Ridge: So before cell phones, there were just two cans and a string. So much simpler.
Thomas: Well, it was a long time ago. Don’t you have homework to do?
Douglas: Can I have my phone back? May I have my phone back?
Thomas: Yes. Stay focused, okay?
Ridge: We didn’t have apps when I was a kid.
Thomas: You know what? Some of those apps can change your life.
Hope: So, it’s true. You sign the annulment papers?
Brooke: Oh, yeah. Ridge and I are no longer married, sweetie.
Brooke: It’s what he wanted. You know? As difficult as it was for me, I wasn’t going to stand in his way.
Hope: Even though you still love him?
Brooke: Yeah, I do. I do love him and he loves me. And it was quite obvious. I was signing the annulment papers, and he was just staring at me, with tears in his eyes. You could see how much this really bothered him. It was hard for him, you know?
Finn: Hey, taylor.
[ Laughs ] What? I was just stopping by to surprise steffy before my shift.
Taylor: No. Yeah, she was here. She left. I stayed behind and doing some work emails.
Taylor: So is that a flat hot extra– white extra–
Finn: Flat white large espresso steffy’s order.
Taylor: It’d be a shame for it to go to waste, right?
Taylor: Oh, I need this.
Finn: So she told me about the big news, ridge and brooke. Sounds like they’re ending their marriage. Can’t imagine how you feel about that.
Taylor: You know, I have a lot of feelings about ridge ending his marriage to brooke.
Finn: No doubt.
Taylor: Yeah. You know, he didn’t even tell me that he was doing this today. But I know how much he cares for her. This… this was a really hard decision for him. I– but, you know, I am happy and I’m happy that ridge is finally free of brooke.
Brooke: I’ve asked myself over and over. How did it get to this point? Annulling our marriage. Living separate lives when we still love each other so much.
Hope: It doesn’t even makes sense.
Brooke: No, it doesn’T. And I’ve been spending every waking hour trying to figure it out. And now because of what ridge said earlier, I think I have an answer. The reason that ridge and I are ending our marriage is because of thomas.
Ridge: So we’re on, right? You and me on the tennis court, after you finish your math problems?
Douglas: Sure. You’re up for it? Last time I ran you all over the court.
Douglas: Sorry, grandad. Just teasing.
Ridge: It’s okay.
Thomas: All right, you. Time to get upstairs. Do your homework.
Thomas: All right.
Thomas: Bye. Still so bothering you, huh? Seeing brooke, and the annulment.
Ridge: You know what? I wish there were an app. Make her tell the truth. Gave her another chance to come clean about that phone call she made to child protective services.
Ridge: And nothing. She’s not taking responsibility for any of it.
Who’s on it with jardiance?
Finn: Did you think that when you returned to L.A., This is how it would turn out?
Taylor: Ouf. I mean, if by this you mean ridge ending his marriage to brooke and not because she let him down again, but because he just wants to spend the rest of his life with me? Nope.
Taylor: Look, brooke and I have a long history. We’ve always played by different rules. As a matter of fact, she didn’t have any rules when it came to ridge. She just… was in it to win it, you know? She didn’t care who she hurt. It was impressive. And very frustrating.
Finn: Yeah, but I get why you feel the way that you do. You had a family with ridge, and brooke just wanted ridge for herself.
Taylor: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, look, I know that brooke loves ridge, obviously, right? But I’ve always wondered, you know, does she really want him or does she just not want me to have him? You know? That’s why signing these papers will be the hardest thing she’s ever done in her life.
Finn: Yeah, well, I know what it’ll mean to my wife to have her father finally free of brooke. Steffy’s wanted this for so long. Thomas too.
Taylor: Yes. Yes. Me and the kids love ridge so much. We just want him to live his best life. You know, I just don’t think consistent happiness could ever be possible as long as he’s with brooke.
Hope: So you think your marriage to ridge is ending because of thomas?
Brooke: Something to do with thomas, yes.
Hope: Okay. Well, what makes you feel that way?
Brooke: I don’t know, it’s like what ridge said earlier. Just that… somehow thomas was tied to the annulment papers in some way.
Hope: Okay, well, how? What does thomas have to do with that?
Brooke: I don’t know. I mean, it’s like ridge wanted me to admit something. At least, that’s the way it seemed. And ridge knows the tension that I have with thomas, and he knows that I don’t agree with him that he’s changed. But that’s no reason to get an annulment. I just see thomas differently, that’s all.
Hope: Well, in all fairness, mom, you don’t just see thomas differently. You– you’re pretty vocal about it. You– and you make it very clear that you think thomas is still being manipulative and obsessive and–
Brooke: He is and he’s fixated on you all over again. It’s obvious, honey. He’s just better at concealing it, especially from his father.
Hope: Did you tell ridge that?
Brooke: He knows how I feel about his son. But I did remind him that thomas has created issues in our marriage in the past.
Hope: I have a sneaking suspicion that ridge did not like hearing that.
Brooke: Well, he also didn’t like hearing that I said his son was untruthful.
Hope: All right, mom. I’m going to need you to tread very carefully with what you are accusing, thomas of. Well, wait, I’m sorry. What even are you accusing thomas of?
Brooke: I don’t know, honey. But like I said, ridge made it seem like the annulment papers and his son were tied together somehow. So that kind of raises a red flag, right? It seems like there’s more to it.
Thomas: So, brooke didn’t admit to calling cps on me?
Thomas: I hate what she’s putting you through, dad. But this is what brooke does. Right? It’s classic brooke logan. She does something terrible, then she plays the victim. I mean, it’s just a horrible person.
Ridge: How about we take it easy on her?
Thomas: This is what she always does to you, dad. From day one, it’s hurt, heartbreak, embarrassment and betrayal. This is your wife who did it to you. And I can’t even imagine how that must affect you. But she saw an opportunity to make me, your son, look like the bad guy, as she always does. And then she played the victim. But thankfully, we heard the call every damning word in her own voice, and we promised walter we wouldn’t say anything. I haven’t said anything. You didn’t say anything to anyone, right? The virus that causes shingles is sleeping…
Finn: I’m just going to ask you this because I’m curious. Do you have any idea why ridge pulled the plug on his marriage?
Taylor: I mean, besides wanting to be with me?
Taylor: No, I honestly, finn, and I don’t know, but whatever it is, I’m grateful.
Thomas: You haven’t said anything to anyone about brooke and cps?
Ridge: I’ve told no one.
Thomas: Not even mom?
Ridge: Not mom, not steffy. Could you imagine if she found out about this? But that’s– that’s enough. All right? Let’s not talk about that anymore. Let’s talk about good stuff. Let’s talk about you being a big star. What you did for hope for the future. I’m so proud of you.
Thomas: Well, thank you. I’m always okay talking about that.
Ridge: And I’m so sorry about what brooke put you through.
Thomas: Ah, not a big deal honestly, it’s because– because you brought everything out into the open, right? So it was worth it?
Ridge: Yeah, maybe it was. Just can’t believe she would do that to you. To me.
Thomas: You know what? Let’s not talk about the bad stuff and brooke anymore. Let’s just let’s move on from that. Let’s move forward to the good stuff. You and mom being together now that those annulment papers are signed. Have you told her?
Ridge: Have I told her that I’m no longer married? No. I thought I’d come here.
Thomas: Well, why don’t you go tell her? She’s at forrester with steffy right now,
Ridge: I can’t, because I’m going to beat your son in tennis.
Thomas: No, no, no. I’ll tell him. He’ll understand. All right? You should go. This is an incredible moment. You get to tell mom that you’re going to be together. And today, tomorrow and forever. And there’s nothing brooke can do about it.
Hope: Mom, you know how much I love you. But I’m afraid if you start to go down this road–
Brooke: My instincts are usually right, honey, when it comes to thomas, if he did do something to try to sabotage my marriage.
Hope: You don’t know that.
Brooke: Well, I didn’t before today, but after the way ridge brought up his son, it’s just a feeling, one I can’t let go of. If thomas did do something to interfere with my marriage, if he did something underhanded , that is something ridge will not tolerate, no matter how much he loves his son.
Ridge: Hey, donna. Where’d the honey go?
[ Laughing ]
Donna: Yes, you did. That sounded exactly like your grandfather.
Douglas: I know.
Donna: That’s the app that you love so much. Right?
Douglas: Yeah, it’s really cool, but could be cooler.
Donna: Oh, yeah? How?
Douglas: Well, it’s kind of glitchy. I mean, all the saved voices I made are gone, so I can’t go back to listen to them.
Donna: Well, I betcha there’s a way to restore them.
Thomas: A way to restore what?
Donna: The voices that douglas had saved on his voice app, they’re gone.
Thomas: Douglas, you still playing with that app? What did I tell you about this? You want me to take your phone away from you again? Because keep disobeying me. I will. Is that clear? Super emma just about sleeps in her cape.
Taylor: Okay, that’s fine. Yeah. Just see if she wants to reschedule. Okay. All right. Thanks, audrey. Bye.
[ Door opening ]
Ridge: Thomas told me I might find you here.
Taylor: Yeah, I’m here.
Ridge: He told you, didn’t he?
Taylor: Yeah. The annulment papers. Are you okay? Is your marriage to brooke really over?
Ridge: It’s over. My marriage is over.
Hope: I mean, mom, you– you have to know that by continuing these attacks on thomas, you’re only going to drive ridge further and further away. And I know that’s the last thing that you want. I mean, have you– have you maybe tried going to ridge and… and telling him that you will try to view thomas through his eyes the way he sees him. I mean, I know that wouldn’t be easy for you, but it might help. And knowing how much ridge means to you, then–
Brooke: Yes, of course. He means everything to me, honey. He is my everything. And as much as I want a life with him, as much as I want to be with him, I just can’t embrace thomas like that. I don’t know what it is. I don’T. But there is something evil about thomas and ridge can’t be blinded by it.
Thomas: You shouldn’t be encouraging him, donna.
[ Scoffs ]
Donna: I wasn’T. I was just suggesting to restore the–
Thomas: The voices on the voice recording app, yeah, I heard.
Donna: Okay, thomas, it’s just a harmless little app.
Thomas: It’s not harmless.
Douglas: Dad, I’m sorry.
Thomas: I told you repeatedly, I don’t want you playing with it.
Douglas: I know, but–
Thomas: But nothing. Okay? You deliberately disobeyed me. That’s not okay.
Donna: Okay, thomas, stop douglas, I don’t even mind that you keep tricking me like that. It’s funny. I mean, it’s pretty brilliant how it actually sounds like somebody else’s voice.
Thomas: You’re not helping, donna. This is between my son and me.
[ Sighs ]
Thomas: Okay, look, bud, this is not a game, all right? This isn’t just for fun. I told you to stop doing it,
Douglas: But, dad–
Thomas: But nothing. I told you to stop. So just delete it from your phone. Okay?
Brooke: I don’t trust thomas, and I never will. More and more, I really think he’s responsible for ending my marriage, and I’m going to find out exactly what he did.
[ Sneezing ] Are you okay?
