At the cliff house, Ridge tells Taylor that his home is with her and they share a kiss. Thomas and Steffy enter and interrupt. They joke if they saw them kissing as kids that they’d be grossed out. Now, Steffy thinks this seems like a dream, and Thomas says it’s incredible. Ridge says this is his home, metaphorically, with all of them. Ridge thinks they have a lot of time to make up for. Steffy and Thomas hope they can do that together. Taylor admits she stayed away for so long because it was hard to be without Ridge and their family. Thomas just wants them to be happy, and Steffy feels her mom deserves this. Taylor notes they all deserve this. Thomas and Steffy leave them to talk.

At the Forrester mansion, Brooke vents to Liam and Hope that Ridge is with Taylor right now and Thomas blocked her from seeing him. She fills them in on the fight between Ridge and Deacon, and she feels he is slipping away from her. She also notes Thomas has Ridge’s phone, so he’s not even getting her texts. Liam thought Thomas was done with his manipulations, but Hope thinks he’s just doing Steffy’s dirty work. Brooke vents that Steffy and Thomas are working to push their parents back together. She is afraid Ridge isn’t going to come home and asks Liam if he can go over and talk to Ridge for her. Liam agrees to try and heads out.
