Stephanie told Brooke that she wanted to believe and trust in her but realized it's the same ol' same ol'. Brooke told her that they were better than this. Steph said that she thought they were but they're not, and that it would never be possble for them to be friends. She then asked Brooke if she just can't help herself when it comes to betraying people. Brooke asked Stephanie to please let her explain. Taylor bounced back into the conversation. "So you can make excuses and lie like you always do?". The women continued to argue back and forth. Brooke couldn't win either of them over. She reminded Stephanie one last time how much they've been through the past few months and asked why she would want to throw that away over something so meaningless. "You see, that's the problem. You think something as important as this is meaningless. You seduce that boy into kissing you, and then you keep the secret from your husband!" snapped Stephanie. She said she sometimes thinks Brooke doesn't know who she is. "I'm just a slut from the Valley" said Brooke. Steph told her that she wanted to trust her so badly, but she ended up betraying her. Brooke said that she didn't. Stephanie told Taylor that she was sorry and that she should've listened to her before. Steph told Brooke that she let her down, but most of all she left her husband down. Taylor asked Brooke if she even thought about how this would damage Ridge and Thomas's relationship. Brooke said that she did and that's why she didn't want Ridge to find out. Taylor called BS and said that Brooke knew Ridge would be angry with her. Stephanie added that Brooke knew she would lose Ridge if he found out. Brooke said, "I really hate to disappoint you ladies, especially you Taylor knowing how badly you still want Ridge, but he loves me and he knows how much I love him and our marriage is stronger than its ever been, and it's certainly not going to be affected by some silly little kiss.". Brooke then left the room.

Ridge announced to Thomas that the cancellation of the Taboo line would be effective immediately. Thomas couldn't believe it and reminded Ridge of how successful the line has been, saying that he'd be making a mistake if he cancelled it. He told Ridge that they were just alike and asked him if he'd ever kissed Brooke while she was married to Eric. "Don't you see? Dad I am just lke you!". Ridge said that he was cancelling the line for the better of everyone, especially Thomas. Thomas asked Ridge if he really wanted to start a war with his own son. Ridge said that he didn't want to argue. Thomas told him that he earned this line and worked hard for it and that none of this was fair. He accused Ridge of letting his emotions get the best of him and not acting like a CEO. "You're not thinking about what's best for the company.". Ridge told him that he's thinking about what's best for the family. "Dad, you're making a BIG mistake over something so silly! Look I appreciate women, all women, just like you; but you need to stop listening to mom and her insane psycho-babble.". Ridge told him that he should have listened to Taylor a lot sooner. "Great, now she's got you convinced that this is a huge deal and that working with Brooke is somehow corrupting me!" Thomas said in disappointment. Ridge asked Thomas why he even kissed Brooke in the first place. "Like I said, I really don't know why. Maybe it was all the talk about Brooke's pull over the Forrester men. Wanted to see if there was any truth to it." said Thomas. Thomas asked if that was worth ruining their relationship and his line. Ridge told Thomas he didn't want to ruin their relationship but that there was more to this than he even realized. Thomas told him that he does not have feelings for Brooke. Ridge said he wasn't sure about that. He told Thomas that he should've put an end to all of this after Thomas's runway stunt. Thomas told him that brought Forrester great press and then begged once more for him not to cancel the line. Ridge told him the Taboo line is DONE. There was no changing his mind.

Alone, Ridge ordered Madison to send out the Taboo cancellation memo and to cancel the Taboo press release. Brooke entered the room and told Ridge that Steph knows the news. She expressed how disappointed she was that their friendship was over. Brooke said that Steph and Taylor were both overreacting about the kiss and told Ridge that they should just put this all behind them and get back to business as usual with the Taboo line. Ridge broke the news to her that he cancelled the line. Brooke begged him not to pull it over this silly mistake!

Thomas went to see his mother and grandmother. He scolded Taylor for telling his father and told her that she's ruined everything. Stephanie told Thomas that he was in way over his head. He told Stephanie that for the record he was the one who kissed Brooke, not the other way around. He continued to defend the kiss & Brooke. He then told them that Ridge cancelled the Taboo line. "All of my hard work down the drain because of you're paranoia of Brooke.". Taylor told him that this is the way it has to be.

Later, Madison visted Thomas in his office and told him about the cancellation memo. He told her not to send out the memo or cancel the press conference. Once Madison left, Thomas said to himself "You want war, dad? You've got war."

    Brooke asked for Ridge's forgiveness. She promised that she'd never keep a secret from him again, no matter how small or insignificant she may think it is. Ridge is still upset that she didn't tell him right away. Brooke tells him that she just didn't want to jeopardize his and Thomas's relationship. Ridge says that he's not angry with her, just disappointed and concerned. Brooke apologizes again and gives him a light kiss before leaving his office.

    Stephanie wonders how the kiss happened and why Brooke would do such a thing. Taylor told her that Thomas was the one who pursued the kiss and that Brooke was asleep while it happened. She created an oral picture of Brooke as the seductive femme fatale ("sprawled out in her lounging pajamas looking all vulnerable") who thought of the kiss as no big deal. Stephanie accused Taylor of hoping this all leads to Ridge leaving Brooke for her. Taylor was quick to say that she's happy with her husband Whip and then she hastily changed the subject back to Brooke keeping the kiss a secret. Taylor says that Brooke is way to sexual and that's why Thomas couldn't resist kissing her. She then accused Brooke of loving having all the Forrester men lust after her. "She's got all three Forrest men — all the generations — lusting after her, and that's what she wants. She wants to be with the Grandson now, and she's going to succeed if she isn't stopped."

    Dayzee runs into Thomas at Forrester Creations where she went to visit Pam. Pam reveals that Dayzee is there for photos to put into a care package that she's making for Marcus, whose in Paris. Thomas sees a sexy photo of Dayzee and asks if there's a wallet sized version that he could have for himself. Later, Dayzee compliments some photos she comes across from the earlier Taboo photo shoot. Thomas told Dayzee about the latest drama going on with his family. Dayzee asks if it will affect his line, Thomas is afraid that it will but is hopeful that Brooke could get through to Ridge.

    Thomas visited his father and asked if they could talk. Ridge asked how the kiss happened. Thomas said that he was sorry and that it was harmless. He assured Ridge that the kiss was all him and that he convinced Brooke not to say anything. Ridge told Thomas that he disrespected him and his marriage. "Like father, like son" Thomas snapped back. He reminded Ridge of how he stole Brooke from Eric. Ridge said that that situation was complicated and that he didn't steal Brooke from anyone. He then asked Thomas if he was in love with Brooke. "I love Brooke. After everything she's done for me over the years. but no I'm not in love with her.". Ridge told him he just couldn't understand what possessed him to kiss his wife then. Thomas told him that it was just in innocent impulse. Ridge told him that it was inappropriate. Thomas disagreed. Ridge accused Thomas of fighting real feelings for his wife. Thomas told Ridge to get over it already. Ridge was annoyed with how disrespectful Thomas was being and then decided to cancel the Taboo line.

    Brooke joined Taylor and Stephanie. Stephanie asked if what she heard was true and Brooke confirmed it. Stephanie tells Brooke that she is very disappointed and Brooke agrees and tells her she regrets not telling Ridge right away, but Thomas convinced her not to. Taylor jumped into the conversation and confused Brooke of trying to "corrupt" Thomas. Brooke said that she'd like to talk to Stephanie alone. Taylor accused her of trying to weasel back into Stephanie's good graces, and then advised Stephanie not to believe a word she says. Brooke asked Stephanie to not forget the bond they've created recently after all these years. Taylor interrupted. "After all these years of sleeping through her family, her husband, her sons, and now you're doing everything you can to hop in bed with her Grandson?!". Brooke begged Stephanie to forgive her and reminded her of all they've been threw these past few months with her cancer and helping out the homeless. Stephanie was annoyed with her and didn't want to hear any of it. Brooke promised that it would never happen again and she'd never betray Ridge. Stephanie began to cry and went into a rage, demanding Brooke to get out. Brooke's eyes began to tear up.

      Thomas suggests he and Brooke go to Ridge and explain the kiss. Brooke is quick to say that it's probably already to late. "She's probably telling him as we speak, and blowing it out of proportion in the process.". Thomas says he hopes Taylor is blowing things out of proportion and going in one of her usual tirades. "My dad won't be able to take her seriously, just let her rant all she wants.". Thomas thinks they should go to Ridge and explain things to him more calmly and rationally when Taylor is finished. Brooke is worried that this will tarnish his and Ridges relationship. Thomas is confident that his father will understand.

      Meanwhile, Ridge is in disbelief after Taylor tells him about the kiss. He wonders if maybe she misunderstood what was said. Taylor kept trying to explain that this wasn't a lie but Ridge wouldn't listen. "Taylor, I trust my wife. I have complete faith in her. She would never allow something like that to happen.". Taylor tells him once again that it's unfortunately true. Ridge asks how it happened. She explains that she thinks Brooke was sleep on the plane, most likely in one of her night lingerie clothes, and Thomas got overwhelmed and kissed her. Ridge begins to budge and Taylor tells him that she really thinks he should pull the plug on the Taboo line.

      Thomas visits Steffy. He gets annoyed with her when she makes a joke about Dayzee. Steffy quickly notices that he's upset about something else and asks him whats wrong. Thomas tells Steffy that he kissed Brooke. Steffy is shocked. "Are you kidding me?!'. Thomas tells her that their mother knows and is freaking out about it. Steffy starts to freaks out as well and begins to blame everything on Brooke. She thinks Brooke has Thomas under a spell and is making him do these things. He assures her that's not the case. Thomas tells Steffy that he wishes she would just show him some support for once.

      Taylor arrives at Stephanie's office and immediately tells her about the kiss. Stephanie doesn't believe it. Taylor says she knows what she heard and that Thomas even admitted it to her. She says the Taboo line is the main reason why all this has happened and that she thinks Ridge should get rid of it. Stephanie says there's no way Ridge would cancel the line considering how much money it's making. Taylor continues to have faith that he will. She then tries to get Stephanie to remember what kind of person Brooke is. "You need to stop and remember what it felt like when she got your husband to cheat on you with her. And then she just ditched him and left your family in shambles. Then she went after both your sons, I'm telling you she is going to go after your Grandson next, you've got to listen to me!". Stephanie takes those words to heart but still thinks there's more to this. She wonders if maybe this was a result of something Thomas had done. Taylor rebuffed by saying "Well, it's always so easy to blame the man, isn't it? It's always their fault that they find Brooke just so beautifully seductive.". Taylor then brings up something Stephanie told her before about how Brooke is always in control and knows exactly what she's doing, leaving men feeling like they've lost control and just let it happen.

      Brooke goes to Ridges office and realizes that Taylor had gotten to him first. Ridge tells her that he knows about the kiss. He's mainly upset with the fact that she kept it a secret from him. She agrees but says that this wasn't important, not nearly as bas as how it seems. "My son kisses you and that's nothing?". Ridge is upset and says that it was a big mistake that she kept this from him. He regrets thinking that things had finally changed this time; that Brooke had finally learned from all her previous "Scandals". Brooke argued that Taylor was the one who glamorized the idea of her and Thomas and put it out there and made her out to be "forbidden fruit". But ultimately, Brooke sincerely apologized and asked for Ridge's forgiveness.

        Taylor thinks back to the previous night when she overheard Brooke mention her kiss with Thomas.

        Simultaneously, Oliver photographed a shoot involving Brooke and Thomas for the Taboo line. Thomas suggested that Brooke take her vest off to show off more skin. Ridge approved of the change. During a break, Thomas suggested that he and Brooke take another trip overseas (this time in Milan) to promote the Taboo line. Ridge agreed and noted that things went smoothly the last time and that he had faith it would be the same this time as well. "You and Brooke were a huge hit in Paris. Nothing bad happened, despite your mothers concerns. I have total faith in both of you." Brooke nodded in hesitant agreement.

        After the photo shoot concluded, Oliver let Brooke know that he'd show her the proofs after he finished his next shoot for the Hope For The Future line. When Thomas and Ridge left, Brooke told Oliver about Hope and Liam's break up. Brooke told Oliver this could be his chance to be with Hope again, but she warned him not to pressure her, just be there for her. Hope entered the room and wondered what they were talking about. Brooke left and Oliver showed Hope the latest pictures he'd shot of her and complimented her on how great of a model she is. Hope asked if he knew about her break up with Liam and he told her he did. Oliver apologized and assured her that everything would be ok. After that, Oliver whipped out some old photo booth pictures from their first date at an arcade. Hope was flattered that he had kept them after all this time. Oliver then attempted to replicate the night they had by doing another fun photo booth session. Oliver apologized to Hope again and then kissed her on the cheek.

        Thomas arrived at his office to find Taylor sitting in there. She told him that she overheard him and Brooke talking last night. "I know about the kiss between you and Brooke on the plane.". Thomas tried to assure Taylor that it wasn't what she thinks. Taylor refused to believe it and blamed everything on Brooke. "Brooke has worked her way through every single man in the Forrester family, alright? It wasn't just a question of if, it was a question of when you would be next." Thomas tried multiple times to convince her that he was all to blame, but Taylor continued her tirade through all of it. Thomas let Taylor know that he was the one who kissed her, not the other way around. "She didn't stop you though, did she?" Taylor said snarkily. "How could she? She was sleeping." said Thomas. Thomas admitted that he couldn't help it. Taylor said she knew he wouldn't be able to resist Brooke's pull on the Forrester men, mentioning how his Father, Grandfather, and Uncle Thorne couldn't in the past either. Thomas told Taylor that he didn't tell Ridge about the kiss because he didn't feel there was a need to. He told her Brooke had every intention of going to Ridge and telling him but he convinced her not to. He pleaded with Taylor that she should do the same.

        Ridge and Brooke discussed Thomas. They talked about him and Dayzee and how great they could be for each other. Ridge notes how much of a ladies' man Thomas has become. "Madison, Summer, now Dayzee? Doesn't exactly give him a lot of time to make the moves on his old mans wife, now does it? Not that he would. Not that you wouldn't tell me if he did." Ridge then hugged Brooke, who looked completely guilty. Later on, Brooke visited Thomas at Forrester Creations and talked about how excited Ridge is about the trip to Milan as they are. Brooke made a joke about leaving Forrester Creations and Thomas got frightened. Thomas then told Brooke that Taylor knows about their kiss. Brooke was afraid that Taylor would tell Ridge about the kiss, but had faith that Ridge would understand.

        Taylor arrived at Ridge's office and went into another tirade about Brooke. By rants end, she told Ridge about the kiss. "Brooke and Thomas were kissing, ok?! They kissed on the way back home when they were flying on the plane from Paris!"
