In a hotel suite, Caroline gets a call from Thomas, who wants to pick her brain. As he talks, she starts crying. Thomas offers to come over. She says she’s at a hotel and sends her address.

Thomas holds her. He says Brooke had the impression Ridge was going to have a baby with her. Caroline thought so too, at first. Thomas is sorry. Caroline doesn’t understand him acting like ending things was best for her. They pour drinks as Caroline tearfully rehashes everything and sobs that she doesn’t know what to do because she loves him.

Thomas would love another chance with her. She says he’s been a good friend. Thomas says they could be more. He blurs and his words echo as Caroline watches him talk. Thomas kisses her.
