Brooke was stunned when Deacon arrived at her house against her wishes and professed his undying love for her and desire to have a future. Sheila figured that if she couldn't get answers out of Deacon about Brooke, she'd pay Taylor another visit, but Taylor's curiosity was piqued by Sheila's intense disdain for Brooke. Taylor offered her friendship and counsel to Brooke, who quickly turned it down. As Ridge lauded Brooke for her honesty, Douglas persisted until Liam and Hope finally believed that he'd seen Brooke kissing a man in a Santa hat. Hope pressed Brooke for answers, and Brooke confessed that she and Deacon had gotten drunk, kissed, and slept on the same bed. Paris was troubled upon seeing a model ask Zende out on a date, but she realized it was for the best when she wound up back in Carter's arms.
