At the loft, Ridge was devastated to learn that Caroline was pregnant with Thomas' child. "My beautiful wife and my son having a baby," Ridge said sadly. He had tears in his eyes. Caroline said she had hoped that she could forget all about that night with Thomas like it had never happened because she couldn't remember it. "But now you're pregnant," Ridge said.
Ridge asked if Thomas knew, and Caroline said that only Ridge knew. Ridge asked again about the night with Thomas. "Tell me what he did to you," Ridge said.
Caroline recounted her memory of the evening. She said that Thomas had called her after she'd left Ridge, and she had been hysterical. Thomas had been concerned about her and visited her. Ridge understood that she thought of him as a friend who had wanted to help her. Ridge noted that everything had been good and right between them, and everything had gone wrong.
Caroline defended Thomas. He didn't know that she had taken pills, and she had followed it up with a lot of wine. And Thomas had been drinking, as well.
Ridge told her to stop defending Thomas. "Look at me," Ridge said. He added that Thomas had said horrible things to him. He knew that Thomas wanted to hurt him. "He slept with you because he wanted to hurt me. He did. He broke my heart," Ridge said.
"What do we do now?" Caroline asked. Caroline said she would go away. Ridge refused to lose her because he had almost lost her once, and he couldn't do it again. "We can figure this out. You shouldn't have to go through this," he said. He asked what she wanted to do because they did have options.
Caroline wanted to keep the baby because many people tried for years and never had children. She worried that it might be her only chance. Ridge agreed. "We're having a baby," he said. He added that they would raise it as their own.
Caroline marveled that Ridge would do that. Ridge said he wanted something good to be the result of the situation. He promised they would be okay. Caroline agreed. Ridge smiled. Caroline wondered how they would tell Thomas.
"He's never gonna know about this baby," Ridge said. Caroline argued that they couldn't keep that kind of news from him. Ridge disagreed. He said that he had married her and promised to take care of her. "You're my wife, and that's our child," he said.
Ridge said that Thomas was incapable of being a father. He stressed that the night that Thomas had been a "friend" to her, he had taken advantage of her. Thomas used women and interns and hit his father. "He's a child himself," Ridge said.
Ridge understood that it was not the perfect dream for either of them, and he didn't want to raise his grandchild. "But I'll do it for you. I'll do it for us," he promised. He added that he would love the baby with everything he had.
Ridge sat down and cuddled Caroline. He promised fairy tale possibilities, and he insisted that Thomas would not be a part of that life. "Or anywhere near you," Ridge said. He reminded her it was "our child now, our secret. Say yes," Ridge said. Caroline looked at Ridge and agreed. "This is our baby. Thomas will never know," she said. They hugged.
At Forrester, Charlotte and Thomas kissed in an office. Charlotte worried about how embarrassed she would be the next time she saw his dad because she had seen Ridge at the Forrester mansion when she had been with Thomas and shouldn't have been. Thomas told her not to worry.
Charlotte suggested their next meeting should occur at her place. Thomas agreed and held her hand. She turned to leave, but Steffy entered and overheard some of the conversation. Steffy advised Charlotte that she shouldn't be there with Thomas. Charlotte told Thomas she would call him later, and she left.
Steffy chastised Thomas for creating a war with their father over an intern. Steffy advised Thomas not to answer if Charlotte called because it was inappropriate. She wondered what was wrong with him that he was hooking up with interns and punching their father. Thomas advised Steffy not to worry about him.
Monica entered and delivered fabric samples. She said that she was glad to have both of them back from Paris and working together. She knew their father was proud of them. She left, and Steffy told Thomas she understood that it was hard to get past old wounds, but they were both lucky.
Steffy insisted that Thomas had to apologize. She reminded him that they had both been extremely vocal about their father's romance with a woman half his age, but Caroline and Ridge were clearly happy and ready to start a family. Thomas agreed, and he said he wanted to be a part of Ridge's new family. Thomas said he originally had worried that Ridge would string Caroline along and then leave her, but he was glad he had been wrong. Steffy advised Thomas to apologize and stay away from interns.
At the Forrester mansion, Eric met with Wyatt and Ivy. Eric wondered what had happened between Ivy and Steffy. Ivy explained that Steffy and Ivy had become enemies the night that Aly had died. Eric couldn't understand why, and Ivy explained that they had argued.
Ivy didn't tell Eric the truth about everything that had happened. Instead, she insisted that they were cousins and family, and she wanted to remain a part of Forrester Creations. "My last name is Forrester, too," Ivy said. She admitted that she had lost Steffy's trust but wanted to regain it.
Ivy was upset that she had been kicked out of her own family's company. Eric understood that she wanted him to intervene and go over Steffy's head. He told her that he no longer had a position at the company, but Wyatt argued that he was the company. Eric agreed he would speak to Steffy. Ivy hugged him, and Wyatt smiled.
