At Brooke’s place, she and Hope stop Ridge from manhandling Deacon. Outraged, Ridge asks Brooke if she’s defending this guy after all he’s done. He can’t have him around the people he cares about. Brooke says that Hope wants him to stay and he’s her father. There’s nothing we can do to change that. Deacon perks up at hearing Brooke defend him. Ridge can’t have this criminal in his house. Deacon says he paid his debt to society. Ridge snaps, “Why is he speaking?” Brooke interjects that they have to consider what Hope wants. Ridge hollers about Deacon hanging around with Sheila. Deacon insists that’s done. He wants to be a father to his daughter. Hope wonders, “Can we just let him try? Is that really so much to ask?”

Hope gets that there is hurt and anger on all sides but she doesn’t share Ridge’s opinion. Brooke reminds him Hope has never had a chance to form her own opinion. Ridge argues it’s not an opinion it’s facts. Hope reminds him that at the end of the day it’s her decision. Ridge asks, “What about the children?” Deacon would never hurt his grandchildren. Ridge ignores him and asks Brooke if they can make this about the children. He urges her, “Tell him to get out and never come back.” Deacon doesn’t want to cause problems and offers to leave. Hope doesn’t want him to go. Deacon loves her so much and will miss her… he’ll think about her and will root for her and those grandkids. “I love you.” He tells Brooke he built Hope up into a beautiful human being and he’ll always be forever in her debt. Ridge snarks, “Nice speech,” and shows him the door. Hope is visibly upset and fumes. Brooke glares at Ridge.

Quinn warns Carter that the Logans don’t play fair. Katie calls Quinn out for not playing fair when she got Eric to fire Donna. She explains that Carter knows how she feels and he was willing to give up everything for her. Quinn turned him down to save her marriage. Katie asks what she’s doing there with Carter then. “Have you reconsidered? Are you leaving your husband for Carter?” Quinn thinks she’d like that because they could install Donna in her place. She guesses they’d throw her clothes in the pool and burn her portrait on the tennis court. Carter grimaces as Katie says they’d roast marshmallows.
