At Brooke's request, Nick went to see Brooke at her house. Brooke thanked Nick for being a friend to Bridget. She told Nick that her family is stronger now because she, Ridge and Bridget dealt with Bridget's old feelings for Ridge. Bridget had told Brooke that her feelings for Ridge were finally gone. Bridget had credited Nick for helping her through her difficult time and getting over Ridge.
At Spectra, Sally did what Thorne requested and came up with a deal for Thorne to own one half of Spectra. Sally informed Thorne that her sale price for him to purchase of one half of Spectra is fifty million dollars. Privately, Darla and Thorne discussed whether or not to purchase the half of Spectra. Thorne knew the only way he could afford fifty million dollars would be to sell his share of Forrester Creations. Thorne asked Darla if they should accept Sally's offer. Thorne's alternative to Sally's offer would be to return to Forrester Creations to work as equal partners with Eric and Ridge. After Thorne thought about it, he realized that his share of Forrester Creations means a lot to him.
At Stephanie's, Bridget accused Stephanie of using Bridget to stir up trouble between Brooke and Ridge. Stephanie corrected Bridget and told her that she was trying to save Ridge and Bridget's marriage, not destroy it. Stephanie told Bridget that she had observed earlier that Bridget and Nick had been flirting with one another. Stephanie wondered if they had feelings for one another. Bridget denied that there could be anything between her and Nick because Nick was not her type.
Back at Brooke's Bridget saw Nick and updated him on what had transpired between her, Brooke and Ridge. Bridget thanked Nick for feeling good that she was able to tell Brooke that her feelings for Ridge are gone. Bridget thanked Nick for being a good friend.

Bridget, Ridge, and Brooke show Thomas the "compromising" photo that Amber took and try to explain the story behind it to the best of their ability. Amber tries to rush over to the Forrester's house to tell Thomas her side of the story first but barges into the living room in the middle of her character assassination. Bridget and Brooke excuse themselves leaving Ridge, Thomas, and Amber to battle it out. Despite Amber's pleas and attempts to explain her actions and redeem herself, Ridge turns to Thomas and tells him to break up with her, saying she will destroy him like she did Rick. Thomas turns to Amber looking unsure as to what he's going to say next.
Over at Forrester, Thorne and the major members of the Spectra clan talk to Eric and Stephanie. Thorne explains to his parents that he cannot accept Sally's offer to own Spectra 50/50 if they don't release his Forrester stock. He says he has to decide which fashion house as the better "long term forecast." To make things easier (even though it seemed to just further complicate things... but that's just my opinion) Thorne challenges his family to a fashion competition. If Forrester wins, Thorne will return to work there and his investment remains with the company, however, if Spectra wins, his parents must buy back all of Thorne's stock allowing him to invest his $50 million with Spectra. Eric says that amount is too pricey for a company such as Spectra, a comment which offends Sally. She excuses her "posse" from the Forrester boardroom saying they should just duke it out on the catwalk with the grand prize being Thorne. They separate for the day. Eric heads straight to the design room where he begins sketching frantically. He tells Stephanie that he will win the competition and reunite his family while, over at Spectra, Thorne tells Sally that he will be the victor and make Spectra the number one fashion house in haute couture in the process.
