Brooke is angry that she cannot take her kids home and insists that Stephanie is up to no good. Ridge tries to calm her down, offering to speak on her behalf at the hearing. Ashley supports Ridge's actions, and Brooke returns home to find Nick, who comforts her and assures her that they will get her children back. Stephanie visits Taylor, informing her of the hearing and suggesting that she attend in case she needs to testify about her conversations with Brooke. Stephanie then visits the children and Ridge, subtly hinting that Brooke should not be around the children. Ridge tells Stephanie to back off, then goes to tell Taylor that they both need to speak on Brooke's behalf. Taylor isn't sure if her testimony will help or hurt Brooke.
