In Douglas’s bedroom, Taylor doesn’t know what’s going on, but no one wants to spoil the day. Thomas assures her that he and Steffy will worry about their little one and she can focus on her special day. Steffy snapped, “Nice try, Thomas, but mom needs to know what you did.” Taylor looked humiliated and worried.
In the Forrester living room, Li tells Ridge and the others that Douglas appears to be at least a little older. Ridge says it’s not like that. Finn offers to go check on him, and Eric thinks he might be worried. Li notes that this is a big day – for Ridge. He looked thoughtful.
At Brooke’s place, Donna and Katie reassure Brooke that they will go through this terrible day together and tell her how much they love her. There’s a knock on the door and Brooke flinches – she didn’t expect anyone. He went, opened it and shouted, “Daddy!” Stephen, along with his friend Lucy, gave him a big bowl as Donna and Katie gawp with glee.
Stephen and Lucy hug Donna and Katie, who are enjoying the feeling of finally meeting their friend face to face.

Upstairs, Thomas and Steffy are absent as he urges her to let go and their mom and dad are happy. Steffy said, “Brooke didn’t call child protective services on Thomas like the father thought!” Taylor was shocked.
At Brooke’s place, she tells Stephen that she doesn’t trust Thomas, that she hasn’t kept her feelings from him, and that she wants him to leave Ridge. “And here we are!” Stephen thought Ridge had given him the benefit of the doubt and told him what was going on before running to Taylor, “I mean, what?” He wishes he could do more to help. Brooke assures her that just being there and being supportive is enough. Hugs and show their love.

On top of that, Steffy doesn’t allow her parents to get married without knowing the truth. She knew they loved each other but Brooke didn’t call CPS. Thomas tells Steffy that this is a bad idea. Steffy explains to Taylor that Douglas has a voice-changing app on his phone and plays the part of Brooke’s phone for her. Then he played back the phone in Thomas’s voice. He tells his mother that it is not as it seems. Taylor snapped, “Tell me now!” Thomas said nicely, “I called CPS.” Taylor said, “Oh my God!” Thomas argues that it doesn’t matter – look where they are now. He got the job done and Brooke was gone and out of their lives. Their mother is about to marry their father. Steffy protests that they can’t base their marriage on a lie. “Dad needs to know the truth!”
At Brooke’s, they all try to come to terms with Ridge remarrying Taylor. Stephen wondered what could have caused Ridge to hold him like that. Brooke doesn’t know but she thinks more and more that it has to do with Thomas. Donna explains that she doesn’t try to hide her disdain for Brooke. Katie adds that it’s a constant promotion from Steffy and Thomas, even though Steffy has lines she won’t go through…Thomas, not so much. Brooke appreciates that Thomas came between Ridge and them, and now he is minutes away from marrying another woman.

In the Forrester living room, Finn reveals that Steffy, Thomas, and Taylor are in a room. He didn’t want to knock. Ridge added, “Let them take their time.”
In the upstairs room, Steffy tells her mother that she wants to marry Ridge, but not to start their life because of a lie. Taylor rushes in and Steffy breathes quickly yelling that Ridge thinks Brooke called CPS and that’s a lie. He pointed at Thomas, “You!” Thomas wonders why he is so determined to blow this. He has loved their parents for years and should thank him! Taylor exploded, “Thank you?!? Thomas, do you know what you did? Why, why did you do this?!? What’s wrong with you? You lied you in this whole situation. I thought you had changed!”
Thomas has changed; he did this for their family. Brooke had burned and destroyed their family for years and she was sick. He sees the look Taylor gives Steffy and wishes he’d let her go, but Ridge says he wants to be with her because he loves her, not because of her. Brooke did. “So go down and marry the man.” Steffy agrees but they can’t be married like this. “Mom, you need to say something.” Taylor said, “Oh my God, Thomas, I can’t look at you! Why did you do this?!?” Steffy doesn’t care about Brooke but what Thomas did to her was wrong – Taylor needs to tell Ridge. Taylor likes to think that she’s not with him because of something Brooke did. Steffy says again that she needs to know. Thomas tells his mother that if he tells his father, his relationship with him will end. Taylor said she thought about that before she did this! Steffy and Thomas take turns telling Taylor what to do and the wedding song starts. Taylor panicked, “What am I going to do?!?” He asked for a minute. Thomas tells her, “Just do it. Go get married.” Steffy says, “Not until you tell Dad first.” Once alone, Taylor finished and was devastated.
As for Brooke, she wondered if Ridge was saying the vows to Taylor when they said it. “What’s going on?”
