Ridge wants Thomas to work at Forrester Creations, but Rick and Brooke are opposed to the idea, while Steffy and Marcus make amends on the basketball court.
Taylor comes to see Ridge who is downstairs at Forrester. She tells him how symbolic it is that Thorne is still in the basement while the Logans are upstairs at Forrester. Ridge makes sure Thomas is on the way and leaves to go to a meeting with Eric.
In Eric’s office, Katie, Donna, Brooke, Eric and Rick discuss ways to swing the momentum back their way from Jackie M. Rick suggests he and Steffy work together to figure something out, but Brooke insists he and Steffy not work on anything!
Steffy and Marcus play basketball on the rooftop and they discuss their relationship. They agree they are friends and Marcus again warns Steffy that Rick better stay away from her. Steffy assures him Rick knows they are through and that she has moved on. Marcus worries she’s still vulnerable to Rick, but Steffy declares she’s not. Marcus says part of him still wants to thank whoever went after Rick and thinks Steffy knows who it is. Steffy avoids the topic and tells Marcus she has missed hanging out with him and she knows he’s one of the good guys. Marcus still worries that Rick won’t leave her alone because he loves to drive Ridge nuts. Marcus says she can count on him and recalls that she stood by him when everyone was dealing with the fact that he was Donna’s son. He feels like he owes her and sees that Rick isn’t out of her system yet. He tells her if she needs any help he’s her guy. Steffy thinks she can handle Rick, but Marcus tells her she doesn’t have to do it alone because he has her back.
Taylor runs into Pam at FC and they discuss Pam screwing up Ridge and Brooke’s marriage license.
Ridge joins everyone at the meeting and Rick points out that he is late. Ridge asks if he missed anything and everyone informs him that Stephanie’s defection to Jackie M has created quite a stir. Ridge thinks Stephanie was more important than Eric gave her credit for and now they are paying the price. Ridge has an idea on how to bring the focus back on the Forrester family where it belongs.
Thomas meets Taylor at Forrester and he’s excited. Taylor doesn’t want him to feel like he’s being pushed, but Thomas says he has a background in fashion and is excited to start working there. Thorne comes in and Taylor says she and Ridge want to bring Thomas in to work at the company. Thorne is happy and says they need all the reinforcements they can get. Both Taylor and Thorne think it’s time the next generation of Forresters take over and remind everyone that it’s Forrester Creations, not Logan Creations.
Ridge opens the door and Thomas and Taylor walk in the office. Ridge says Taylor came up with an idea that he supports one hundred percent. He says they need to reinforce that FC is a family run company and that it’s high time Thomas join them. Eric likes the idea and Ridge thinks it will be reassuring to their clientele. Thomas knows he has a lot to learn, but he will give it his best shot and Rick rolls his eyes. Thomas knows not everyone is comfortable with this, but it’s his birthright and he wants to be there with his family; he needs to be there. Rick says, “So what Tommy Boy needs. Tommy Boy gets? Is that right?” Rick declares there is no way he will allow this. Eric doesn't understand why he is opposed to the idea and states they have to stand together. Brooke also objects and Eric is confused. Eric demands to know what’s really going on, but he gets interrupted with a phone call. He takes Donna and Katie to deal with an issue.
Rick and Brooke argue with Ridge and Taylor about Thomas working at FC. Ridge says James has assured them Thomas is fine, but Rick doesn't want to be anywhere near him when his boat capsizes. Ridge and Taylor wonder why Rick gets to work there after everything he’s done, but Thomas can’t. Rick reminds them that Thomas almost killed him and Brooke says they lived in fear for weeks wondering what could happen next. She pleads with Ridge to see that Taylor is doing this to drive a wedge between them and accuses Taylor of using her son to get Ridge back.
Pam comes back to see Taylor, but Thorne informs her that she is with Ridge bringing Thomas into the company. Pam is excited about the idea, but Thorne doesn’t think Rick will be happy with it. Pam says they would all be better off if whoever blew up Rick’s car also blew up ‘Little Ricky’ too.
