Dayzee tracked the child down, but they soon learned she and her adoptive parents had died in a car wreck.

Maya shares that she saw Rick's wife, Caroline, in Ridge's arms and told Katie. She thinks something is going on and soon everybody will know it. Carter argues that Ridge is a moral person. Maya thinks all bets are off when you add sexual attraction. She maintains that the situation is odd, and says Rick thinks so too. They bicker until Carter gets fed up and leaves. Othello tells Maya he's still hurting. He adds that if her hunch about Caroline and Ridge is right, Rick won't stand for it. Othello calls Maya out for hitting on Rick after he was married, but admits Rick really liked her before. Othello opines that Maya put wonder in Rick's eyes and if Caroline's fooling around, she'll be gone. Maya says she'll be waiting. Inside, Katie appears in Rick's office. They discuss Caroline and Ridge. Katie thinks they're putting out good designs. Rick thinks something's off. "I don't like it."

He asks again what's going on. Caroline says Ridge needs her. She tells him Ridge can't draw since the helicopter incident, but can design through her. She thinks it's amazing to be Ridge's vessel. Rick explodes, "He's using you!" Caroline asks what he'll do. Later, Rick confronts Ridge and challenges him to alter a design on the sketch pad.
