Taylor assures Massimo that she is going to tell Ridge the truth and there’s nothing he can do to talk her out of it. Now that Rick knows about Amber’s love for Deacon, he doesn’t know what to do. Amber tells Rick that she has never been more in love with her husband or ready to have a child. Later, Rick confides in Thorne. He explains that although Amber is pregnant with his child, she hasn’t gotten over Deacon. Does Thorne have any advice? Brooke informs Megan that Taylor is about to get what’s coming to her - and Brooke won’t have to do anything! Megan can’t believe that Brooke’s going to let Taylor get away with this. Brooke thinks that she and Ridge are finally going to be together. Taylor and Stephanie’s worst nightmare is about to happen, and they brought it on themselves. Meanwhile, Ridge confronts Stephanie about her role in Massimo’s plot, telling her that she has hit a new low. Massimo insists that the plan was his, and Stephanie and Taylor couldn’t have stopped him if they had tried. Ridge belts Massimo in the jaw and tells him that he wants him out of his life. Massimo responds that he wants Brooke out of Ridge’s life. Stephanie admits that what they did was wrong, but she’d do it again in a heartbeat to get Brooke out of their family. Ridge insists that what they did is unforgivable. He orders Massimo and Stephanie to leave so that he can talk to Taylor.
