They locate Brooke and explain they took Nicole to the airport. Brooke updates them that she and Ridge are getting married right away and Katie’s her maid of honor. Rick, not thrilled, quips, “You’re not pregnant are you?” Brooke understands Rick’s reluctance regarding the nuptials, but really wants his blessing. Meanwhile, Thorne asks Ridge to stop referring to him as ‘little brother’ as it’s condescending. Ridge agrees to try, and Eric enters as they’re ‘hugging it out’. Eric cautiously questions the scene as the brothers explain that they’ve reached an understanding. Eric is more proud of them than he’s ever been in his life. They all embrace.
In the design office, Katie and Maya look on as a teary Rick seeks to ensure that his mother is happy. She calls him her ‘rock’ and ‘protector’ and reassures him. They hug.
