Thorne is the youngest son of Stephanie and Eric Forrester.
Thorne had many tumultuous relationships with Macy, but they finally ended up not being together. Later, he married Brooke, but their marriage was doomed to failure. He found happiness with Darla Einstein and the two married.
Thorne was made president of Forrester Creations, but upon Ridge's return, the presidency was transferred to Ridge. Enraged, Thorne left Forrester Creations and joined Spectra, taking some of Forrester's designs with him. However, Thorne decided that it wasn't fair to use Forrester's designs and began designing his own clothing lines, enhancing Spectra Couture's designs with his own. Thorne's parents had discouraged him earlier in life, telling him that Ridge was a better designer, and he hadn't made any since. This was a new life for him!
Sally, however, had bet everything she had that Spectra would win the fashion show, but after they lost, Thorne not only lost his job, but lost the company as well.
Stephanie, however, had discovered that she was the owner of Forrester Creations, and reinstated Thorne as the president of Forrester Creations.
Thorne's happiness wouldn't continue, however. On his daughter, Ally's, 5th birthday, Darla's niece Phoebe had a flat tire and was stranded on the side of the road. Phoebe called her mother, Taylor, who was drunk, and asked for help. Taylor, thinking Phoebe was in trouble, jumped behind the wheel and drove to her aid, not knowing that Phoebe had also called Darla. Darla made it to Phoebe first and, as she was on the side of the road fixing the tire, was hit by Taylor. Afraid that Taylor would be in big trouble, Phoebe convinced her to not come forward with the truth about the accident. Darla died and a crushed Thorne sought comfort from his friend, Taylor, who eventually became his lover and then his fiance. He had no idea that the woman he loved was actually the woman who killed his wife. Taylor hid the truth from him as long as she possibly could, but eventually guilt overtook her and she came clean about the accident. Thorne was furious and called off the wedding, especially once it became clear that Ally did not want Taylor as a step-mom.
One year after Darla's death Thorne found himself mired in a deep well of drug and alcohol problems, and horribly lonely. He ran into Donna Logan at a bar, however, and she quickly changed things around. The two became lovers and then engaged.
It wasn't until Thorne & Donna's wedding day that Donna's sister Katie revealed to Thorne that Donna didn't love him and was only marrying him to get revenge on his mother, Stephanie, that Thorne came to his senses. He left Donna at the altar.
After his failed wedding to Donna, he and Katie became friends. However, when Eric took up with Donna, Thorne teamed up with Felicia to break the two of them up. This of course strained Thorne’s new-found friendship with Katie.
In his never ending quest to get Donna (who was now Eric's wife) out of his father’s life, Thorne helped Ridge and Felicia try and dig up dirt on the new Forrester Creations employee, Marcus, who Donna hired. They discovered Marcus was Donna’s son that she gave away for adoption many years ago, but instead of becoming angry, Eric welcomed Marcus into the fold.
When Eric fell into a coma, Thorne sided with Ridge and agreed that they should take control of the company from Donna. That didn’t work out so well and while Eric recuperated at home, Thorne helped Stephanie keep Donna out of Eric’s life by banning her from the house. He then assisted his father in spying on Donna to find out if she was being faithful to Eric or cheating on him with Owen.
Becoming tired of playing second-fiddle at Forrester Creations, Thorne teamed up with Taylor and her kids to wrest control from Ridge and Brooke. Thorne told Taylor he forgave her for her role in Darla's death and they kissed.
Thorne was suspected of giving Forrester designs to Jackie M., but the real culprit was Rick. Still, Brooke made Rick president instead of Thorne, and Thorne resigned from Forrester.
Thorne eventually returned, but Bill Spencer, Jr. took control of Forrester and made his new wife Katie CEO. Katie asked Thorne to be vice president, but he turned it down. Thorne tried to sabotage Bill with an ugly clothing line, but was left out in the cold when Steffy Forrester got the company back from Bill and Thorne got none of the stock.
When Liam Cooper came to town looking for his long-lost father, Thorne was a possibility because he had dated Liam's late mother Kelly Cooper, but DNA proved Bill was his father.
After Thomas lied to get Stephanie's stock in Forrester – giving Taylor and her kids controlling interest – Thorne and Taylor reignited their relationship and plotted to take over the company. Thorne made his move, but Taylor decided not to pit her children against their father, Ridge. Thorne and Taylor continued to date a bit but eventually ended things.
At Stephanie's celebration of life party, Thorne was able to clear up issues with his mother before she died. Later Thorne turned down Eric's offer to be Forrester president and stayed in shipping. But once sales slipped under Rick, Thorne worked with Thomas to convince Eric he should be president. It didn't work.
Thorne was ecstatic when his daughter Ally returned from college and they both moved into the Forrester mansion with Eric.
Thorne moved to Paris to work at Forrester International while Ally shadowed Hope at Forrester. After Ally had extreme negative reactions to Hope's boyfriend Wyatt Fuller, Thorne told Brooke that Ally had anger issues related to bullying and Darla's death.
Thorne began dating Taylor again, and Ally was enraged when she found out. But after realizing how happy Taylor made Thorne, she came around. Thorne was happy that Ally had finally found peace and he could be with Taylor.

At Forrester Creations, Wyatt kisses Ivy and tells her not to let what happened to Aly consume her. He offers to be there for her. They kiss again. She worries he's only doing this to distract her. He's not and invites her to his place for dinner. In Ridge's office, Thorne continues to demand that Steffy tell him what really happened to his daughter. Ridge asks his daughter to go. Steffy bursts into tears as she apologizes and exits. Ridge encourages Thorne to grieve. He'll be there for him, but he won't let him blame Steffy. Meanwhile, Thomas is working out on the rooftop when Carline interrupts. They briefly discuss her accident before he asks how she got together with his dad. She talks about being Ridge's 'tool' as he recovered from his accident. Thomas makes a few jokes until she gets called away. He heads down to his office and starts sketching a picture of Caroline.
At Forrester Creations, Ridge, Caroline and Thomas discuss Aly's death. Thomas feels his sister is paying a price. Ridge says it's through no fault of her own. Thomas argues to cover for Steffy, but Ridge isn't changing anything, even temporarily. Thomas will join the design team. He and Ridge spar verbally. Thomas comments that Ridge and Caroline together is 'bizarre'. Caroline asks what's bizarre about it. They assume he thinks Ridge is too old for her. Thomas says it's just kind of trippy. Talk turns to designing. Ridge wants him to show him something. Thomas tells him to make sure he wears his reading glasses and exits. Outside, Steffy wants to be involved in a project, but Liam thinks she's been through a terrible trauma and should take time off. He assures her there was nothing she could have done to prevent Aly's death - she slipped and fell. Steffy says it wasn't that simple. Liam asks what happened and Steffy walks him through it up to Aly attacking her with a tire iron. After that it all happened so fast. Liam assures her it wasn't her fault. Inside, Quinn, Wyatt, and Ivy are working when Thorne appears. He comments on his daughter slipping and hitting her head; to think she would die like that. Ivy looks like she wants to say something. Thorne complains about Ridge at the memorial service. Ivy thinks he was just upset for Steffy. Thorne comments that she's still alive. He still can't fathom that Aly slipped and now she's dead. "Tell me how that happened." Quinn remarks on the senseless death. Ivy and Wyatt tell Thorne that Aly loved him and spoke about him all the time. Thorne needs closure. "There has to be more." Quinn takes him outside. Ivy wonders to Wyatt how she can keep the truth from Thorne - Aly died because Steffy killed her. Wyatt argues that there would be repercussions. Ivy thinks Thorne deserves the truth. They debate about Aly; Wyatt says she was the aggressor and provoked it. Ivy says she only knows what she saw and Steffy lied to the police. She laments not being able to help Aly and bring her back. Wyatt says she's amazing for standing up for Aly, but she has to stop blaming herself. She asks how. Wyatt kisses her. In Ridge's office, Steffy is distracted. Ridge needs her leadership. He warns her not to answer questions from the press and to keep away from them. Thorne appears. Ridge says he's protecting Steffy. Thorne asks what about his daughter. "Who protected Aly?" Ridge says everyone feels terrible - he remembers what it feels like. Thorne doesn't have answers. He thinks Ridge trashed Aly at the memorial. Ridge says he told the family that they missed the signs of mental illness; she was a victim of it and made Steffy one too. Steffy tells Thorne that Aly tried to hit her with her car and attacked her. When she tried to defend herself, Aly slipped and fell. Thorne thinks something else must have happened. "Tell me!"
