At Brooke’s place, she and Thorne continue their conversation about Ridge. He’s certain whatever happened in Australia involved another woman. It upsets him that his brother always turns to someone else and doesn’t appreciate Brooke. Talk turns to design talent, and Thorne reveals some of his own drawings. Brooke is floored. “They’re beautiful.” Thorne explains he started designing after Aly died, after running into a famous designer who also lost a child and threw himself into his work. He was encouraged by other designers who took him under their wings and started his own label – Aly’s Fashions. Brooke is amazed that ‘The Aly Line’ is his. Thorne says he came back to L.A. to share his dream with her…and the rest of the family. Brooke embraces him enthusiastically. She looks forward to him breaking this news to the rest of the team. Thorne asks again about Sydney. Brooke shrugs that it was a silly kiss. Thorne presses that it must have been with someone pretty upsetting for her to call off the wedding. Brooke excuses herself.
