Judging by Katie’s response of “Caroline, he’s got to be told,” Caroline may also admit that Thomas is Douglas’ father. Or is does Katie simply not know yet, that Ridge is in the know about that evening?
Katie is fully clued in by the time she goes to Ridge. She looks Ridge in the eye and tells him gently that he has to tell his son the truth. Ridge simply shakes his head. “You have to tell Thomas the truth, Katie encourages her former fiancé.Ridge takes Katie’s advice. In a private moment in his office, Ridge stands with his hands in his trouser pockets while Thomas sits at his desk. Ridge, standing over his son, tells Thomas that he knows about that night with Caroline. Thomas is open mouthed as he leans back in his chair. No doubt the past year of animosity and hostility his father has doled out to him just made sense. Ridge tells his son that he knows what happened in that hotel room…
