At Forrester Creations, Caroline tells Brooke that Ridge is out ‘planning their future’. Brooke thinks she will find out what it’s all about before too long. Caroline wonders if Brooke knows about Ridge’s surprise. Brooke cautions her to stop guessing or she’ll spoil it. When Brooke worries that Caroline might be disappointed, Caroline asks why she’d say that. Brooke says surprises aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be. Caroline talks about the elopement, and then observes that it’s weird talking to Brooke about him. Brooke says he’s one-of-a-kind. Caroline smiles. She says Ridge is an open book – there’s nothing hidden. Brooke whispers, “Most of the time.” She clarifies that she’s not pining for him – she looks at Caroline and sees herself; a young woman who so wants to have children with Ridge. Caroline thinks Brooke knows what it’s like to have a child with the man you love. Elsewhere, Zende confronts Thomas about kissing Nicole. Thomas says it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Zende says he thought there was something going on between them. Nicole says Thomas kissed her. Zende says it’s none of his business. Nicole takes him to get fresh air. Outside, Nicole tells Zende that the kiss wasn’t even about her – Thomas is going through something. “Thomas was thinking about someone else, and maybe so was I.” Inside, Thomas flashes to being in bed with Caroline as she gives advice on a design. They talk about Ridge. Caroline thinks a new baby would be a blessing for all of them. Thomas is happy for her. She is so excited about their future. In another office, Ridge tells Brooke that he can’t have a baby – he’s infertile. Ridge doesn’t know what to do – all Caroline wants is to have his son or daughter. He’s taking her dream away.
