Ridge and Brooke are making out on the sofa. She notices that Ridge is happy that Hector told Rick what he did. Brooke says that Rick really cares about Caitlin, and Ridge says, that if that if true, he can wait until she turns 18. Brooke says and by that time, you hope that she is with Thomas. They try to put this subject aside and go back to what they were doing. Who should come in? None other than Stephanie, who tells them that she certainly doesn't miss seeing this. She is there because she wants to know about the conversation with Thorne. Ridge tells her that Thorne is hell bent on bringing Forrester's down. Ridge tells Stephanie to leave Thorne alone and let him figure out on his own that this vendetta is pointless.

Brooke fidgets around after Stephanie leaves and tells Ridge that Thorne could pose a threat to the company. Brooke, once again, warns Ridge, that he should not underestimate Thorne.

Deacon has set a lovely dinner for Jackie. He is looking at her picture and saying that all he needs now is her.

Jackie tells Massimo that the last time she saw him, he threw divorce papers in her face, and now he wants her back. He says that the movers are getting ready to transport her belongings in the morning, as they speak. Massimo tells her that they can talk more about it at dinner. Jackie tries to tell Massimo that she can't go back partly because of what happened with Nick. She tells Massimo that he is still not returning her calls. She just can't sit down to dinner like nothing has happened. Jackie is trying to tell Massimo that she can't believe what is happening. It is all so unreal. She feels that what she did, caused her to lose her son Nick and she can't bear the thought of not having him in her life. "Not even if I cut the fish?" inquires Nick, who walks in carrying a tray of appetizers, "welcome home, Mother." He tells her that he has a friend who made him see that life is too short to hang on to hurt, and how important family is and he tells her that he wants her back in his life again. Jackie just can't believe that this is really happening. Nick tells her that he and Massimo have talked a lot about it. Massimo is urged by Nick to tell Jackie that he loves her, and he does just that. Nick says that dinner is ready and he and Massimo head for the table. He asks, "are you coming, Mother?"

She does, but, hesitates somewhat. When they are all seated, Massimo ends up telling her that he did not file the divorce papers, so they are still legally married. She asks, "Why?" Nick comments, "Because he digs you." Jackie returns home to Deacon's place. She enters and finds the table set for the evening. She doesn't know where to begin. Deacon asks her, "Where have you been?" She tells him that she spent the afternoon with Nick. He wants her back in his life and he made this afternoon all happen, and he has forgiven her. Deacon is happy for her. She still looks dismayed. He thinks it is because Nick may not understand the relationship between his Mother and himself. Jackie tells him that she was also with Massimo. He too, has forgiven her, and wants her back also. Deacon tells her that he loves her. He knows that he is what she wants also. Deacon asks her, if she thought he would just say that it was ok? Are you just going to do what they want, are you just going to walk away from all this? She turns to him, and says, "I'm sorry." She walks away from him and back to Massimo and Nick. Deacon sits down looking forlorn and devastated.

Stephanie goes to see Thorne at his office at Spectra's. She asks him, "What is going on?" Stephanie asks Thorne if he would deny his own daughter a place in his family. She says that if he is mad at her that's ok, but it has left his Father, devastated. Is this really about you feeling we didn't give you enough love and attention? Stephanie and Thorne talk some more. "Where would Alexandria come?" asked Thorne. "In the shadows of your second-best son and the dingbat?"

Thorne says "that Alexandria will have a legacy of her own, that no one can ever take away from her. No one will ever tell her that she doesn't measure up. So, go on home Mother, and tell my Father and your son, they better watch their backs."
