Brooke-Thorne-dine-Il-Giardino-BB-CDAt Il Giardino, Thorne tells Brooke he doesn’t know how she can stand Ridge. Brooke clucks that he loves Thorne, but he isn’t swayed and complains about his condescending attitude. He adds Brooke was right to stop the wedding, and to divorce Bill – she deserves better. In the bushes, Sheila watches the exchange. Thorne remarks to Brooke that she’s always been there for him, and she observes that he’s an amazing person. They are remembering their wedding in Venice when Ridge appears, and insists Brooke join him for an urgent meeting. Once alone, Thorne is joined by Sheila, who remarks on Ridge taking Brooke away as a lead-in to revealing that Ridge had an affair with Quinn.

Back at Forrester, Brooke realizes there is no meeting, and says Ridge was rude to Thorne. Ridge shrugs that she should stay away from Il Giardino anyway since Sheila’s there.
