At the cliff house, Taylor and Ridge are nearby as she flashes on the kiss in Monaco. She says Monte Carlo confuses her. She doesn’t want to force anything anyway. If they’re meant to be together, then they’re gonna be together.

Nikki Newman arrives at Forrester and is greeted enthusiastically by Eric, who introduces her to Steffy and Hope, who are in the office with him.

Eric takes Nikki to show her the dress they designed for his granddaughter Summer’s vow renewal. She squirts on the garment and Steffy apologizes to Ridge for not being able to. Nikki looks at pictures of Ridge with his children and Steffy notices that he adores his family. Nikki asks how Steffy is doing after the shooting.

At Forrester, Nikki tells Eric that the dress is beautiful and that Summer will be a knockout. “The cut, the neckline, it’s just beautiful.” Eric did the length and seams. Nikki teases that the couture is inspired. Steffy asks if she’s going back to Genoa City now. Nikki has a save to make first.

He takes a small package from his jacket pocket and looks at it thoughtfully.

At the Forrester mansion, Thomas tells Taylor that Brooke was confronting him about having participated in Steffy’s interference and questioning his ability to become a parent. Taylor scoffs at this given Brooke’s parental background. Thomas thinks the knife set it off. He explains that he was peeling an apple with a knife, and it seemed to trigger her – she accused him of being a danger to her own son.

At Brooke’s, she tells Ridge that she fears Douglas is safe with Thomas. Ridge protests and she gives him a look. He asks, “What is that look? What do you know?” Brooke announces, “He had a knife. Around Douglas. I’m worried about that, Ridge. Thomas is scaring me.

Hope recaps that she’s trying not to start a custody war and asks her father to leave Brooke for Taylor. Steffy says time is running out; it’s just a matter of time. Brooke is the last person she would want for her father. She tried not to interfere when her mom was away but she’s back now and they’re reconnecting. Who wouldn’t want their parents to get back together? “I will do whatever it takes to make it happen, Hope.”

At the Forrester mansion, Thomas complains that Brooke likes to put her own spin on things and paint him in the worst possible light. Taylor protests that Douglas is safe with him – he’s done so much work to turn his life around. He jokes, “Not according to Brooke.” He was sure to let her know that when he was wrong, it was her fault. He will protect their family from her at all costs.

At Brooke’s, she repeats that she doesn’t feel Douglas is safe and complains that Thomas hasn’t brought the child home. She would call child protective services on Thomas if she had to. Ridge tells him to slow his roll. Thomas is his son, and they will take care of him like a family. If there’s a knife on her mind, he’ll go get it. Douglas is loved, happy and safe. They kiss, but Brooke doesn’t seem convinced.
