Taylor talks to Thomas, Brooke pleads with Eric, and Maya wrestles with her dilemma.
Rick knocks on Maya's door. She tells him she can't let him in, but will meet him downstairs soon. Alison orders her to tell him it's over if she wants to stay out of jail. Later, Rick returns. Maya hugs and kisses him. He presses to stay overnight, and goes on about what she's done to him. "Maya, I love you." She thinks about being in jail, pulls away from his kisses, and says, "I can't." She says she's not the right woman for him. He should go. Rick doesn't understand. She insists it won't work. Bewildered, Rick leaves, telling her he knows she has feelings for him.
At the Forrester mansion, Taylor and Thomas talk about how wonderful and supportive Eric is to her. They discuss how Ridge was always torn between her and Brooke. Taylor sighs that she wasted too many years on a man so easily lured by Brooke. They wonder what Stephanie would think of everything.
At Brooke's house, Eric tells her she can't kiss him like that. She insists they can do this. He reminds her he's in a committed relationship with Taylor. Brooke, incredulous, says he could have a life with her. Eric scoffs that Taylor will put this all together in a heartbeat - she's already suspicious. He gets a call from Taylor, and tells her Bridget's in town. He had dinner at Brooke's and will tell her all about it at home. After, Brooke makes another appeal about how the shock would kill Katie. He asks what about the shock to Taylor and everyone in their family? She pleads with Eric to help her. She complains that her family shouldn't have to pay for her mistake. Eric asks why Taylor should have to pay for her mistake. Brooke soothes that he should just tell her they got caught up in their feelings. Eric says he's sorry. He just can't do it, and doesn't want to talk about it again. Later, Brooke appears to get an idea and smiles.
Taylor hangs up with Eric and tells Thomas he was having dinner with his kids at Brooke's place. She notes she's not worried about Brooke. Thomas leaves. Eric arrives, apologizing for not calling earlier. They talk about Bridget's visit. Taylor says she had a nice talk with Thomas about how happy she is to be in his life. She mentions Brooke still pining for Bill. Eric says Bill's low on her list of priorities. Taylor thinks there must be another man; she can't be alone for long. She's just glad it's not Eric that Brooke's prowling after.
