At Brooke's house, Amber showed Brooke the photograph that she had taken of Ridge and Bridget in a "compromising position." Brooke immediately believed (to herself) what she saw in the photograph.

At Marone Industries, Ridge told Nick to back off that he and Bridget were fine. Nick explained that he had set Bridget up with a date but that she would not go because she felt she was not ready.

Instead of being upset with Amber, however, Brooke was upset with Ridge. Brooke questioned how Ridge could have done this to them?

He assures Brooke that the picture is not what it looks like. Amber tries to explain that she wants to help Ridge and Brooke see the problem so that their marriage can be saved before Ridge does something to hurt it. Amber tries to make Brooke think about what might be going on between Ridge and Bridget when Brooke isn't home. Ridge throws Amber out and then tries to calm Brooke. Brooke is in tears, warning Ridge that she told him before that if he ever touched Bridget again that their marriage would be over. Ridge tells her that his family means everything to him and he wouldn't do anything to hurt it.
Stephanie and Eric watch Bridget and Nick talk by the pool. Eric is glad that Bridget is smiling again. They both agree that if Nick is who Bridget ends up being with, that it's okay if it helps her get past Ridge.
At the pool, Nick and Bridget laugh about the chimpanzee that Bridget brought to be Nick's surprise date. The two are enjoying each other's company and exchange some "meaningful" looks.
