Jackie gets a little lightheaded and Deacon gives her the drugged orange juice. Deacon said Massimo doesn't know that Jackie is there as Massimo watches and says to himself "get your hands off of her."

Deacon tells Jackie to repeat that she needs him there and Jackie does. Deacon leans over and kisses Jackie as Massimo says to himself that Deacon is the devil.
Thorne is having a meeting with his "Dream Team" when Ridge shows up. He is again making accusations that Thorne is doing this because of his feelings towards Ridge. He is as usual, cocky to a point. However, this time Thorne is in charge. He tells Ridge that with a leap of faith, they will succeed. Thorne says that while they could find no one else to give them a chance, to shine, he will. They will be able to prove themselves to everyone, and to keep in mind that this is no longer a rag tag group, so he better watch out. Ridge calls them a support group for underachievers, the creative genius behind Sharpe Designs. Thorne says that every word out of his mouth makes us even more determined. So, is you want to stick around and put down the competition, like you always do, go ahead, but he would be safer to go back to work and prepare for the worst, because, their coming on and their coming on strong. Ridge walks out the door. Darla walks up to her husband and embraces him. She says that Ridge will never be able to bully you again. Everyone there is proud of Thorne.
