Hope arrives in her mother’s living room, where she and Brooke wonder about Douglas’ night. Brooke hopes he didn’t cry himself to sleep. Hope asks, “Did you?” Talk turns to Ridge’s inability to see Thomas for what he is. Hope feels it’s a problem they can solve without him.

At the Forrester mansion, Thomas notices Ridge isn’t wearing his wedding ring. Ridge says Brooke took hers off first. Thomas asks, “Why?” He figures it was because of him. Ridge says no one is responsible but the two of them, and rings or not, they’re still in it. Thomas takes a call from Hope, who wants to come over after Douglas gets home from school. He makes arrangements, then disconnects. Ridge questions Hope’s sudden change of heart. In the guesthouse, Shauna tells Quinn that she and Ridge both slept there last night. Quinn also learns that he wasn’t wearing his wedding ring since Brooke’s in an-eye-for-an-eye mode. Shauna shrugs that Thomas can be a psychopath sometimes but he’s not a total lost cause. Quinn listens as Shauna describes Ridge pulling off her beauty mask before indulging in hot, torrid…conversation. She’s never met anyone like him – he makes her want to behave, and misbehave. Quinn knows what she means. Shauna gapes, “You and Ridge?” Quinn tells her about her past kisses with him and points out he wasn’t married at the time. “Is he now?” Shauna doesn’t think he knows. Later, Shauna searches for a costume for the Halloween party and flashes to Ridge kissing her.
