In Abu Dhabi, Katie cries and hugs Ridge. "You're alive." He nods. Eric asks Ridge what happened. Ridge says someone found him, took him in, and now he's there. Eric and Brooke step away. Katie rambles to Ridge about investigating the accident and then about going home. Nearby, Brooke and Eric agree that something's off with Ridge - he's not fully present. Eric says a doctor's on the way. The doctor arrives and confirms Ridge has a concussion and is suffering from memory loss and confusion - he should be monitored back in the States and avoid stress. Ridge wants to head home. Brooke says RJ's been dying to see him. Ridge looks uncomprehending, but says, "RJ yeah sure." Katie talks to Ridge about hitting his head. "Do you remember us?" She immediately apologizes for pressuring him with questions and says they can pick up where they left off. Ridge looks puzzled. She holds up her finger with the red string and tells him about their plans together. "Tell me you remember, Ridge." Elsewhere, Bill and Justin discuss the helicopter incident in hushed tones. Justin tells Bill that he thinks Ridge may have seen him before he 'cooled him off'. Bill is irked. They go over how it all went down. Justin says he noticed Ridge staring at the Spencer logo on the sleeve of his jacket. Bill says no one can ever know he dumped Ridge from the chopper. Brooke appears. "Ridge is alive." She tells them she found him on the beach, but he's a bit foggy. Bill and Justin exchange a look. Bill says, "This is wonderful news, Brooke."
