Ridge: All right, everyone just take a breath. Why are we fighting here? What’s going on?
Brooke: Taylor has been playing me for months.
Taylor: Stop it, brooke! That is not true!
Brooke: Oh, god!
Taylor: That is not true!
Brooke: It is true. She broke our pact, ridge. She destroyed our friendship. She used me, and the only reason she did that was to get to you.
[ Restaurant chatter ]
Hope: Hey, hello again.
Hope: Hey, dad.
Deacon: Hi, hope.
Hope: You okay? You seemed a million miles away.
Deacon: Yeah, I wish. Uh, I don’t suppose you have a space shuttle I can borrow?
Hope: [ Laughs ] Uh, no? Why, what’s going on?
Deacon: It’s about your mother.
Thomas: All right. This is the one I was telling you about. What do you think?
Steffy: I think it’s stunning.
Thomas: Well, I’ve kind of changed up everything. The– the color, I revamped the bodice, and it was all last minute, but I just had to go with my gut.
Steffy: Well, it’s paying off. Look at it now.
Savannah: It’s one of my all-time favorites, thomas.
Thomas: Thank you. Yeah, I, um– I kind of decided to do the floral thing.
Thomas: You know, I was gonna go with a solid color, but I feel–
Steffy: No, no, you can’t go wrong with florals. Hope’s gonna love it.
Savannah: Hope loves everything thomas does.
[ Thomas chuckles ]
Savannah: You and hope work great together. So in sync, almost as if you were a couple.
Steffy: Okay, well, thank you, savannah. Uh, thomas and I, we actually have a meeting, so, if you don’t mind, um…
Thomas: Can you let alterations know this is a go?
Savannah: Of course. No problem.
Thomas: Yeah, thank you so much for your help.
[ Steffy sighs ]
[ Door shuts ] Don’t freak out.
Steffy: Don’t freak out?
Thomas: Yeah, savannah was just making a harmless remark.
Steffy: So, she’s not sensing a vibe with you and hope?
Thomas: There’s no vibe to pick up on, okay? What she said was just completely random. There’s nothing to worry about when it comes to hope and me.
Hope: Okay, so, what do you mean by that? Why is there an issue with mom?
Deacon: Well, I guess you’re gonna find out eventually.
Hope: Find out what?
Deacon: I tried to get with your mom. I– you know, I asked her if there was a chance of us having a future together.
Hope: You did?
Deacon: Yeah. And she shut me down very nicely.
Hope: I’m sorry, dad.
[ Deacon scoffs ]
Deacon: I just– it was stupid.
Hope: No, it’s– it’s not– it wasn’t stupid. You two shared a very special bond once upon a time.
Deacon: A long time ago. But you know what? I got the very best gift possible out of it. I got you. I should know by now that your mother doesn’t want anything besides friendship, and I– I never would have even reached out to brooke if I hadn’t listened to…
Hope: Uh, uh, listened to who?
Taylor: No, no, no, she is– she is– she’s making– do you– you– you are making…
Brooke: So ridiculous.
Taylor: …Things up, brooke. What you’re saying isn’t even true.
Brooke: No, no, no. You know what? I know exactly who you are. Okay? She was pretending to have a friendship with me when all she really wanted, ridge, was you.
Taylor: Stop it, just stop! None of that is true.
Brooke: Taylor, you are not digging yourself out of this one.
Brooke: You know what she’s doing, ridge? She is setting me up with other men, so that she could have a clear path to you.
[ Exhales in frustration ] Your hair is damaged,
Steffy: Thomas, I have heard those words before.
Thomas: Okay, nothing is going to happen.
Steffy: I know you believe that.
Thomas: It’s not even a thought in my head.
Steffy: Yeah, maybe not in your head.
Thomas: Okay, look, hope and i are too focused on the line, uh, to care about anything else. We’ve got italy coming up, and– and douglas and anything besides that, not on our minds. But you can be as paranoid as you want.
Steffy: Oh, okay. So, as– as co-ceo of a multibillion-dollar company, I’m just being paranoid? Gotcha.
Thomas: I get it. I get it. You– look, we– we all have a lot going on, and with rome coming up, we’ve got the fashion preview and press events.
Steffy: Yeah, it’s a lot. There’s a lot on the line, thomas. And not just financially. Durability, reputation. Your reputation.
Thomas: I understand what’s at stake as much as anyone, okay? But I’m not gonna do anything to jeopardize hope’s line or her marriage.
Hope: That’s shady. Oh, taylor trying to set up mom with you or hollis so she could go snag ridge. That is…
Deacon: Just ’cause it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…
Hope: Okay, dad…
Deacon: Smells like a duck…
Hope: I mean, I know a little more about taylor than you do, and I know that playbook, and this is certainly a page straight out of it.
Deacon: I just hate to think the worst of her, I mean, I’m not trying to throw her to the wolves here, okay? But, I mean, taylor definitely broke your mother’s trust.
Hope: No, they had a pact, and– and mom was loyal to that agreement.
Deacon: Oh, I don’t know, I– I don’t think the two of them are gonna be agreeing on much of anything in the near future.
Hope: No kidding. I mean, do you think taylor was ever mom’s friend to begin with or, like, has she been planning this the entire time? I don’T…
Deacon: I– you know, I– who knows? I– I– I don’t think so.
Hope: This is wild. I mean, does mom know? Someone has to tell mom.
Deacon: Oh, don’t you worry your pretty little head. Yep. She knows.
Hope: You told her?
Deacon: No. No, no, no. She figured it out by herself.
Hope: That’s sad. That’s sad. It’s like, one step forward, 10 steps back.
Deacon: I think, probably, right now, as we’re speaking, taylor and brooke are duking it out.
[ Whispers indistinctly ]
Taylor: I don’t wanna fight with you, brooke.
Brooke: Mm-hmm. You should have thought of that before you double-crossed me.
Taylor: Oh. Oh, okay. That is not what I was doing.
Brooke: [ Laughs ] Oh, really? What would you call it then?
Taylor: I would call it “retaliating,” because I knew that you didn’t keep your side of the pact.
Brooke: Will you stop?
Brooke: Stop with all your excuses, okay?
Taylor: Oh, my god.
Brooke: You’ve been scheming this for months. All those lunches at il giardino.
Taylor: Oh, come on, brooke. It’s the hottest restaurant in la, we love the food.
Brooke: You were trying to set me up with hollis. And when I told you that that just wasn’t gonna happen, then you went to deacon, and suddenly, deacon is calling me out of the blue trying to make a move on me.
Ridge: Why would deacon think he had a– a shot at you? I don’t understand.
Brooke: Oh, well, because of things that taylor said to him. I mean, she urged him to go after me. She said that, “this is your chance. This is your opportunity to be with brooke since ridge is off limits.”
Taylor: That is true. But that didn’t all happen at once. Brooke, I spent so much time with you and deacon when we would go to the restaurant. That’s how that started, and I actually saw a connection, so don’t start trying to make this into something that it’s not.
Brooke: Just stop already. You set deacon up for heartache, and you sold me down the river, all because you wanted to clear your future with ridge. Clear the path to ridge. That’s what you wanted. Why don’t you just admit it already? Admit it, taylor. You already confessed to me. So? Ridge is here. Why didn’t you tell ridge what happened?

Thomas: Come on, steff, we’ve talked about this so many times.
Steffy: You think I want to be focused on you and hope?
Thomas: Then stop. What have I done to make you question my integrity?
Steffy: I am not pointing the finger at you, thomas.
Thomas: Kind of feels like you are.
Steffy: You know I love you. You know I’m proud of you, and I recognize all the dedication to the line as a designer, as a fatheR…
Thomas: Then what more do I have to prove to make you believe in me?
Steffy: I do believe in you. But that doesn’t mean I still don’t have concerns about you and hope spending so much time together.
Hope: Well, this is a disappointing development.
Hope: Mom must be really upset.
Deacon: She’s definitely hurt and she feels betrayed by taylor.
Hope: Well, she should. I mean, a world-renowned psychiatrist. Please. I mean, pushing two people together, knowing that you have a soft spot for mom, and she not only used mom, but she used you.
Deacon: All right, wait, hang on a second, I didn’t get used, I’m a big boy, I knew what I was doing, all right? I figured, “what the hell, why not give it another shot? I got nothing to lose.”
Hope: No, that family is beyond frustrating. I mean, taylor and steffy, they’re hypocrites. They are. They always give me and mom a hard time about being logans when taylor went and betrayed mom. Please, I hope this entire thing blows up in her face.
Taylor: Okay. I– I know that this doesn’t look good for me right now, and I get that. But what I did was not all… manipulative and shady.
Brooke: Yeah. Keep telling yourself that.
Taylor: Yeah, brooke, I will. You know, maybe, with a little bit of time… once you’re not so angry… maybe, you can see this, um, from a different perspective. I– I– I trusted you and our friendship, too. But it’s over now, right?
Brooke: Yeah. Yeah. Pretty much seems that way.
Taylor: It does.
Brooke: I mean, when you had deacon call me to come over to il giardino, you were here talking with ridge and trying to secure your future with him.
Brooke: Isn’t that right?
Brooke: I mean, I happened to overhear some of your conversation, ridge, to…
[ Chuckles ] So much for vowing to not fight over ridge, right?
Taylor: Well, yeah, you have your part in that, too, but yes, that is– that is true. I hate this.
Brooke: I hate this, too. I mean, we’ve made peace, taylor. We vowed to be friends. I just never expected this from you.
Taylor: Oh, god.
Brooke: My friend, taylor.
Taylor: My friend, brooke.
Ridge: Can I talk to, uh, brooke in private for a minute?
Taylor: Okay, that’s a good idea, but don’t let all the stuff she’s saying make you think worse of me.
[ Brooke laughs sarcastically ]
Taylor: You haven’t heard both sides.
Ridge: We’ll talk later.
Ridge: I can see how hurt you are.
Brooke: I am hurt. I mean, I… I just feel so gullible, and so blindsided.
[ Brooke scoffs ] I don’t know, I– I don’t want to talk about taylor and how she– how she, uh, broke my trust.
Brooke: But I would like to talk about… you and me. And what our future looks like from here. When it comes to your hair, ingredients matter.
Thomas: We are heading to italy. So, this should be an exciting time for the family, for the company, and for hope for the future.
Steffy: It is. Rome is a magical place, and I have watched people get swept up in the beauty and romance of it all.
Thomas: Okay, but not hope and me, right? Because we are just colleagues. We– we work together, and that’s it. Strictly professional.
Steffy: Yeah, I know that’s your intention.
Thomas: I promise to you that nothing’s going to happen, and I’ll back it up. If something ever did happen, I’ll buy you a new car.
[ Steffy chuckles ] I’ll buy you a new house. That’s how confident I am nothing’s going to happen. I promise there will be no drama in italy.
Steffy: I– I can’t help, but be apprehensive, and I’m not trying to rain on your parade or anything.
Thomas: Okay. Rome is going to be awesome. We are the talk of the town, right? Why can’t you just have some faith, and know that everything’s gonna be okay?
Steffy: Hope you’re right.
[ Door clicks open ]
Thomas: Perfect timing, actually. I have some sketches I want to show you.
Taylor: Oh, good. I– I wanna see the sketches.
Steffy: What’s going on with you? You seem upset.
Taylor: No. No, I– I don’t want to… I– I just– I don’t want to–
Thomas: Mom, obviously, something’s going on, what’s up?
Steffy: Tell us.
Taylor: Brooke and i got in a fight.
Steffy: Like, physical?
Taylor: Yeah. Well, kind of. Yeah, um, then, your– your dad walked in on it.
Thomas: Okay, what were you fighting about?
Steffy: Yeah, I thought you two were super close.
Taylor: Me, too. Um, she thinks that I broke the pack, and I think it was the other way around. It’s complicated, uh… but I did end up forcefully suggesting to deacon that he reach out to brooke and, uh, try to make a life with her. Which initially, was– was because they’re– they’re cute together, and I thought it would be a good idea, but anyway, uh, long story short, um… brooke is accusing me of– of scheming.
Steffy: Wait, but hope is trying to… she’s been trying to get her parents back together for years. What’s the difference?
Steffy: Timing. And because it’s coming from me. So, brooke found out, and she’s accusing me of trying to get her out of the way, so that… I can be with your dad.
Thomas: Okay, so, um, what does this mean? Does this mean that your pact with brooke is over?
Taylor: Over. It’s– it’s done.
Steffy: And does that mean you now wanna… be with dad again?
Taylor: I have never not wanted your dad.
Brooke: Oh, god! The nerve of her! You have every reason to be upset. But I gotta tell you, I find it really hard to think that taylor is as calculating as you think she is.
Brooke: Yeah, yeah, well…
[ Laughs ] Oh, ridge. There is so much going through my head right now. I– I can’t even begin to tell you. But I– I don’t wanna waste any more time thinking about taylor. I want to focus on you and me and our future together. I never thought that this would be a possibility again. But I want you to know… that I never stopped thinking about you. Never stopped wanting you. Longing for you. Wanting you back home with me. I can’t believe it. I, uh– I chose myself, and I chose a friendship– a friendship with taylor… over the man that… the man, you. Over you, a man that I’ve loved most of my life.
Ridge: Yes, we’ve been through a lot. And we’re here. But honestly, do you… you really still believe in eternal love? Because I don’T.
Brooke: I do believe in eternal love. And I still believe in our destiny.
