Liam and Bill came by the Malibu house. Amber told them that Rosie was with Marcus. Liam asked how he was handling it. Amber said he's still in shock. She then told them to get on with what they came here for, which was to give her the boot. "I'm already packed." she said. "Good." Bill replied. Liam stepped away and called Hope to tell her to come by. Hope, who was still with Steffy arguing, told her she had to go. Steffy told Hope that she didn't want her to be heartbroken over her parents reunion. Hope told Steffy that she'd be the one who ends up heartbroken because Ridge belongs with her mother, not Taylor. Meanwhile, Amber came downstairs at the Malibu house with her bags packed. Bill snarked at her. Hope arrived and Amber told her she was sorry and hoped to make it up to her some day. Bill wasn't having any of it and fiercely told her to leave. Before leaving, Amber said she's starting a new life now taking care of her precious baby. She asked them to all say prayers for her. Bill clapped with glee when she left and suggested they call a hazmat crew to come and disinfect the house. Liam was stoked when Bill told him that he and Hope could keep the keys to the house. Bill left and Liam and Hope celebrated. "I want to make this the summer of our lives." Liam said.

Dayzee stopped by Brooke's home at her request. She asked what happened with her and Ridge. Brooke didn't want to talk about it. Brooke told Dayzee that she wanted her to be on the board of her new foundation.

Over at Taylor's house, Taylor confided in Stephanie that she wanted her wedding to be small. Stephanie was to distracted to listen. Taylor asked if she was ok. Stephanie said she was. Taylor noted that Eric told her she was coughing the other night. Stephanie said she goes in for all of her check ups and that she's fine. Taylor tried to cheer Stephanie up by asking her to be her matron of honor at the wedding. Stephanie gladly accepted but wondered about Steffy. Taylor said she wanted both of them to be it. Just then, Stephanie got a call from Brooke who said she needed to talk to her. Ridge came in as Stephanie was leaving. Before leaving, Stephanie hugged him and told him she wants him to be happy. Taylor told Ridge that she thinks Stephanie's been acting strange lately. Ridge said he hasn't been paying much attention. He told Taylor that he went to see Brooke and told her about the proposal. He talked about how difficult it was. Steffy arrived home as her parents hugged. Taylor asked her daughter to be her maid of honor. Steffy accepted and was excited. Taylor told her that her Grandmother would be standing beside her. Steffy wanted to go talk with her about it but Taylor said she was with Brooke. Later, Taylor sat with Ridge, who was sullen. He said he felt like his whole world has turned upside down and that he can't hold onto his bearings. He added that he didn't know how he could cope with all this without her. Taylor said she was ready to be his wife and would marry him right now if he wanted. Ridge said soon. "I want my famiy back. I want you." he told her. They kissed.

Stephanie arrived at Brooke's, along with Nick and Jackie who were there to help with the foundation. As the meeting commenced, Jackie and Dayzee noticed Stephanie's reluctance to the idea and wondered how she could be so hesitant towards Brooke's gesture. RJ came downstairs and asked Brooke to read him the book his dad always reads him. She told him to go get the book. Brooke decided to end the meeting but asked Stephanie to stay awhile longer. Brooke told Stephanie that it's been a difficult transition for RJ. Stephanie said she'd support in any way she could. Brooke said she lies awake at night and tries to remember what happened on the island. Stephanie told her not to obsess over it. Brooke told Stephanie she was grateful and lucky to have her in her life. "You changed my life, and I will always love and respect you for that," Brooke told her. She hugged her. Stephanie looked on with a guilty face.

    Taylor celebrated her engagement at home with Stephanie and Steffy. Taylor couldn't believe her and Ridge are getting married again Stephanie told her that she deserves this. Later, Taylor and Stephanie sat down for tea. Taylor thanked Stephanie for the ring and said she was honored to have that Forrester heirloom. Talk shifted to Brooke and they talked about how she has no morals. Taylor said she felt vindicated and that she can finally stop worrying about Brooke coming along and ruining everything. Stephanie laughed.

    At Forrester, Thorne, Eric and Ridge worked with some models in the office. When the models stepped out, Thorne demanded Ridge to tell him why he and Brooke broke up and why Brooke left the company. Ridge said it was between him and Brooke. He then announced that he proposed to Taylor last night. Thorne got upset and told Ridge he was moving to fast and making a mistake. He stormed out. Eric told Ridge that Thorne would probably feel differently if he knew what happened between Brooke and Thomas. They talked about Brooke not being able to remember what happened and Eric said he thinks she's blocking it out. 

    At home, Brooke looked at a photo of her and Ridge together. She thought back to the previous night when Stephanie told her that Ridge proposed to Taylor. Hope came downstairs and said good morning. She could tell her mother wasn't fine and accused her of burying herself in the foundation project to hide her pain. Hope wondered why she even wanted to work with someone who hates her. Brooke said Stephanie doesn't hate her, just what she did to Thomas. Hope couldn't believe it when Brooke told her Ridge and Taylor were engaged already. She asked her mother why she was giving up so easily. Brooke told her that it's the best for Ridge. Hope told Brooke that at some point she's going to have to forgive herself. Brooke noted how disillusioned Katie and Donna were when she told them what happened with Thomas. Hope told her mother that she's not alone and that she has her family by her side on this. Later, Brooke looked at a letter from her attorney. Ridge stopped by. They talked about telling RJ about the divorce.  Ridge asked Brooke if she remember anything else about what happened on the island. Brooke said she didn't but that she won't stop trying. She said her betrayal shattered their life and dreams together. Ridge wondered if he could still call her 'Logan'. Brooke said she wouldn't want him to call her anything else. "I will always be your Logan," she told him softly. She then showed Ridge the final divorce decree that she got from her lawyer. Ridge admitted to proposing to Taylor last night. "I did what you wanted me to do," he told her. Brooke said it was hard to hear him say that but she accepts it. She told him she thinks they should get married quickly to start the healing process. She added that she will always love him and always cherish the memories they've had. Ridge took her into his arms and then kissed her before slowly walking out the door. Brooke sobbed.

    Hope came by Steffy's office and gave her some promo photos. Steffy noted how Hope's handling her parent's reunion better than she thought. Hope snapped that it's because she doesn't think it'll really happen. Steffy said that Brooke won't ruin it this time and that Ridge will never forgive her for what she did with Thomas. Hope told Steffy that she thinks Thomas is lying. Steffy accused Hope of being desperate and in denial. She said that she, her mother and Thomas all deserve happiness with their father for once and added that her mother deserves happiness more than anyone. "I think my mom deserves to be happy, to." said Hope. "Yeah your mom will be happy–with another man because my father is officially off the market," Steffy replied. Steffy told her that integrity, goodness, and loyalty win in the end and that unlike Brooke, her mother has all those things. Hope told Steffy that her "sainted" mother isn't perfect and also noted to Steffy that her mother only allegedly slept with her brother, unlike Taylor who definitely slept with her brother. Steffy yelped that her mother and Rick were in an actual relationship and that it was completely different. Hope said she was just sayin'. Steffy told her that Brooke betrayed her dad in the worst possibly way and that he'll never forgive her. Hope said that Ridge loves her mother and that he will always go back to her. "It's their destiny."

Later he asked Hope for some inside info on Brooke leaving Forrester Creations. Hope said she didn't want to get into it. Bill asked her about the Stephanie Forrester Foundation.

Later, Stephanie got a call from Steffy telling her about Ridge proposing to Taylor.

        Taylor is speechless after Ridge proposes to her. Ridge said he's home if she'll have him. Taylor accepted Ridge's proposal and they kissed. Steffy was excited about the news, while Thomas was aloof. Steffy and Thomas went outside and Steffy expressed how excited she was.

"I am never going to forget that Brooke slept with our son," he told her. Taylor told Ridge that she doesn't want to set herself up for more emotional pain and told him she doesn't want to have a physical relationship with him again until they're married. Ridge said he understood. Thomas and Steffy came back inside and Ridge told Thomas that they'd work through their problems together as a family. Steffy took out the ring Stephanie told her to give to her father. Ridge took it and talked about how Stephanie used to frustrate him with all the bad things she said about Brooke.

She explained that she doesn't remember getting intimate with Thomas, but he does. She promised her sisters she would repair herself for the better. Later, Stephanie visited came to visit Brooke. She told her that she still wasn't comfortable with her name being used for the foundation. "Just because you've lost Ridge doesn't mean you can latch onto me," she told Brooke. Brooke told Steph that she was her inspiration and the reason she's doing all of this. Stephanie told her that she didn't want to be her inspiration and to just leave her out of it. She then switched gears and told Brooke that Ridge proposed to Taylor. Brooke put her hands over her mouth and tears started falling down her face. Stephanie shook her head and hugged Brooke.
