When Thorne arrives, Stephanie tells him that he’s doing the right thing and that she’ll have Jonathan draw up the annulment papers. After, Stephanie goes looking for Brooke, who has returned to the cabin and is near the end of her emotional rope. Kristen admits to Clarke that Tony is the perfect man for her. As long as they have each other, their dreams and their health, they don’t need anything else. Taylor informs Tony that Sofia will have to be tested for HIV, too, even though Tony and Sofia were always careful and used condoms. After Kristen calls his cell phone, Tony asks Taylor how he is supposed to tell the woman he loves that he is HIV positive. Taylor explains that he doesn’t have to give up on his dreams; he just has to approach them differently. Ridge urges Thorne not to turn this into a crusade against Brooke, even if he decides he can’t forgive her. Ridge insists that Brooke still loves Thorne. Thorne retorts that he has stopped living in Ridge’s shadow and being Brooke’s consolation prize. As soon as the papers are ready, Thorne is ending the marriage. Brooke is surprised when Stephanie shows up at the cabin. Stephanie tells Brooke her time is up. Stephanie is finally through with her.
