With both Brooke and Taylor taking a different side about Thomas, Stephanie finds herself squarely in the middle and with a definite opinion. Stephanie agrees with Taylor that there is no denying Brooke’s scandalous behavior at Forrester Creations, and with the Forrester family, but also feels it’s not realistic to forbid Thomas from being in contact with his father’s wife. Taylor feels betrayed that Stephanie is taking Brooke’s side and after Brooke leaves, expresses to her friend that she feels she’s lost so much from Stephanie to Brooke. Stephanie apologizes to Taylor and reassures her that she’s not losing her friendship. Angry, Taylor let’s Stephanie know that it’s not “if” Brooke will go after her son, but “when”. Stephanie is left speechless when Taylor goes on an obsessive rant about Thomas needing protection from Brooke. Amber attempts to comfort Oliver when he arrives home early from his photo shoot with Hope. After learning how Liam barged in and took a willing Hope away, Amber offers Oliver a sympathetic ear and a bit of advice. Liam takes Hope to a secluded area on the beach where he speaks to her candidly about her relationship with Oliver and how the death of his mother has changed him. Hope and Liam share a steamy kiss. Taylor leaves Stephanie and heads to Ridge’s office to talk to him about the situation. When she enters, she becomes convinced that her worst fear has become a reality, when she sees Thomas in a steamy embrace with Brooke.  Taylor is relieved to find out she is mistaken and that the blonde girl Thomas is kissing is really “Summer.” Thomas demands an explanation for his mother’s behavior. When she admits she thought it was Brooke, Thomas promises her that will never happen. Thomas assures Taylor that he doesn’t resent her for giving her shares of the company to Steffy and explains that Brooke is helping to make everything okay because she is helping him to work his way up the ladder the old fashioned way, with hard work. Taylor agrees to stop fighting Brooke and Thomas’ partnership and the Taboo line. Stephen, Donna and Katie meet with Brooke for lunch. The Logan family discuss Donna and Stephen’s recent trip to Paris and Donna admits that she still misses Eric.  Stephen broaches the topic of his continuing relationship with Pam and asks his daughters to let bygones by bygones and to move forward. Stephen, Donna and Katie are skeptical when Brooke reveals that Stephanie’s cancer has changed her perspective on life. They query her about the kiss with Thomas. They are shocked when Brooke tells them that Stephanie supports her in this because it has created quite a buzz for the Taboo line. Brooke continues to defend Thomas and convinces her family that the publicity the kiss generated is good for business.  Katie comments on how good Brooke and Thomas look together. Brooke looks at pictures of Thomas and tells her sisters she sees Ridge in his son.

Amber and Oliver panic when Aggie arrives unannounced. Amber hides on the patio and listens as Aggie tells Oliver not to give up on Hope and begins to malign Amber.  When Aggie goes to shut the patio door, she sees Amber in hiding. Amber shows herself and gives Aggie attitude for what she said about her. Oliver tries to continue to cover to his sister, but Amber reveals the truth; that she and Oliver are living together.  Oliver comes to Amber’s defense when Aggie demands that he get rid of Amber immediately. Oliver becomes affected when Aggie asks how living with Amber will improve his chances of reuniting with Hope. Aggie leaves and Amber begins to pack. Oliver reminds her that she doesn’t need to defend herself anymore. Amber flirts with Oliver and tells him that while she wouldn’t steal the Forrester designs again, she would definitely still make the moves on him. Although Oliver assures her that he doesn’t see her like Aggie does, Amber is still disappointed when he tells her that she does need to leave. While Aggie goes to see Hope to beg her to give Oliver one more chance, Amber begs Oliver not to throw her out of his house. Amber gets seductive with Oliver and he becomes tempted by her offer. Hope attempts to get Aggie to understand that she and Oliver will always be friends but that she is with Liam now. Taylor explains to Ridge about her case of mistaken identity with Thomas and his model friend. She admits to her ex-husband that he is the only person who truly understands her. Taylor expresses her relief that she and Thomas were finally able to have an honest conversation and promises Ridge that she will try and trust Brooke. Taylor is beside herself when Ridge admits to her that if her fears would have been correct, and there were truly more between Brooke and Thomas than just the fashion line, his marriage would have been over. He goes on to say that if his marriage to Brooke fell apart he would return to her. Whip stands by unnoticed, but has heard part of his wife’s conversation with her ex-husband.

Ridge and Brooke make love and then discuss Stephanie, Taylor and Thomas. Ridge is surprised when Brooke tells him that Stephanie sided with her today over Taylor. Brooke and Ridge look at photos and remark how happy they are to be together and growing old. Brooke pledges to Ridge to never let anything happen again. Taylor is joyful at Ridge’s admission to her and calls Stephanie over to tell her all about it. As Taylor recounts to Stephanie her conversation with Ridge, Stephanie becomes concerned that Taylor may have misconstrued Ridge’s words and that Taylor may be holding out hope for a future with him. Taylor is positive that Brooke will let Ridge down and have another indiscretion. Stephanie expresses that she hopes that Brooke has changed, especially given all of the time that they have spent together lately. Stephanie thinks Taylor is still in love with Ridge. Amber tells Oliver she admires him and has learned so much for him. Oliver doesn’t allow Amber to berate herself for all of the mistakes she has made in the past. She wholeheartedly apologizes to him for all the messes she has gotten him into. Oliver surprises Amber and gives her a key to the apartment above the garage. She is genuinely moved, and tells him that he is more amazing than she realized and she hopes Hope knows how incredible he is. Aggie arrives to visit Oliver and is pleased that Amber is not there.  She tells her brother of her visit to Hope and urges him to go to her and tell her that he loves her.  Hope is surprised to see Amber at Forrester Creations. Hope lets Amber have it when she reveals she was hoping to see Rick to get a job. She accuses Amber of being a manipulator who enjoys hurting people. Amber is genuine when she tells Hope her true thoughts about Oliver and is pleased with herself when she plants a seed of doubt about Liam.

Bill and Justin are investigating the Liam limousine situation. Justin has uncovered information from the limousine company. Bill is angry and wants answers. When he finds out that Oliver was behind the stunt, he vows revenge. Amber and Hope continue to talk about Hope’s love life. Amber continues to persuade Hope that Liam is just like his father and she should not give up on Oliver.  Hope doesn’t want to listen but she doesn’t want to leave, either.  Liam visits Oliver at home and demands he stop making moves on his girl. Oliver reminds Liam that he works with Hope and that him taking her out of a photo shoot was unacceptable. The two argue over the Hope/Oliver kiss and who kissed who. The argument escalates and each man is convinced he is the right one for Hope.  Amber arrives home and starts to come through the patio door but Oliver waves her away. She sees Liam and hides on the patio. Hope thanks Ridge and Brooke for everything they have done for her. Her parents ask Hope why she seems blue and she admits that it is because of Oliver and Liam. They advise her to always put herself first when it comes to Liam and to make her intentions clear with Oliver, even if it may hurt him. Hope explains that it is not as simple as that, that she is still torn between the two of them. They are interrupted by a call from Liam who tells Hope he wants to see her tonight; that he has made plans and that she will be his top priority.
