Still in Ridge's office, Brooke panics when they can't get a hold of Hope and learn none of her friends have heard from her. Ridge says she's a smart girl and will be okay, but Brooke still frets.
Sandy Confronts Her Attacker.
Nick and Sandy close in on Graham, while Ridge and Brooke rush to Hope's side.
At the lab, Zev gets a match on the DNA and says Graham is the guy. Zev calls Baker and Sandy starts to leave. Nick thinks they should wait, but Sandy won't wait one more minute and takes off. Nick follows and they drive to Graham's place.
In his loft, Graham cozies up to a passed out Hope and calls her a little Sleeping Beauty. She starts to wake up, but is still hazy so Graham tells her to relax and enjoy the ride. He will take good care of her, but she wants to go home. As she goes in and out of consciousness, Graham tells her she's not going anywhere because the party is just starting. He strokes her hair and face and then kisses her. As Hope lies there motionless, Graham starts to take her clothes off and calls her beautiful and perfect. He likes that she doesn’t talk back to him and wishes all women could be like her. He then flips out and yells at her for talking so much (even though she's still passed out) and says it's better when she's quiet. He starts kissing her neck and says when she wakes up she will think she just had too much to drink and she will keep quiet out of shame. Nick and Sandy come to his door and Nick knocks saying he has a contract for him. Graham tries to get him to go away, but when Nick won't leave, he covers Hope up and cracks open the door. Nick kicks the door in, struggles with Graham and then sees Hope on the bed. Graham sees Sandy and then runs out the door. Nick goes to Hope as Sandy runs after Graham. Lt and Det. Baker arrive and Nick instructs them to call an ambulance and to call Brooke. As the cops do so, Nick takes off after Sandy and Graham. Detective Baker calls Brooke and she and Ridge rush out. When Brooke and Ridge get to the loft, they find Hope on a stretcher and Detective Baker tells them he's not sure, but he thinks Nick and Sandy got there before Graham could hurt her. They are surprised to find out they are involved and Charlie tells him there's a lot going on. Ridge says when they get Graham, he wants five minutes alone with him.
Sandy chases Graham in the stairwell and they end up on the rooftop. Nick climbs the stairs, as Sandy corners Graham and tells him he's the one who raped her. He says he doesn’t know who she is and claims he never touched her. She tells him he's going to jail, but he says she has no proof. She informs him she has his DNA and he will never touch another woman again. She has waited years for this moment, but he says she was drunk that night and whatever happened, she probably deserved it. As she threatens him, he grabs her throat and throws her to the ground. He stands over her and says, "Looks like you're all mine, once again."
Whip finds Bridget in Nick's office and asks where the boss is. Bridget isn't sure, only that Nick is dealing with something. Whip notes it sounds mysterious and Bridget wonders what it is. Bridget talks about their baby and Sandy and thinks there's a part of her she likes to keep hidden. Whip offers that Sandy is just private, but Bridget notes a sadness behind her eyes as if she's hiding something and wishes she knew what it was. Oliver comes in and meets Bridget, who says she's very fond of his sister. Bridget leaves and Oliver tells Whip he was supposed to meet Sandy a half hour ago. They talk about Sandy's situation as Bridget returns saying she's been texting Nick non-stop but he hasn't responded.
