Ridge Insults Thorne; Thorne Pushes Ridge
Thorne tells Brooke his brother is incapable of change. Don’t give him another chance to break your heart ever again. Brooke says she was furious at first, and its taken her a lot of work to get past that. He’s not going to do it again Brooke says.
Thorne reminds her that Ridge can’t commit. He can’t do it, not like Thorne. Thorne admits there was another reason for coming back to LA. Other than being a designer. It’s Brooke, Thorne tells her. He’s been thinking about all the people he’s lost in his life. That made him think about those who have been close to him that he hasn’t lost. She’s one of them.
Brooke is glad he’s back. They’ve had some wonderful times together. Ridge comes in. Thorne tells Ridge he knows what he did with dad’s wife the day before he was supposed to marry Brooke. It doesn’t get more disgusting than that, Thorne says.
Ridge tells Thorne mistakes were made and he apologized. What does it have to do with Thorne, Ridge wants to know. The people involved have made peace with it. Brooke leaves to answer the door, and wants to know if they can be trusted alone.
Ridge accuses Thorne of having issues with Ridge because Ridge was their mother’s favorite. Ridge doesn’t want to fight. He loves his brother so he’s going to tell him the truth. He’s not a leader, he’s not a designer, and he’s less gifted than Ridge. That’s how the world and Brooke see him.
Thorne shoves Ridge so he falls to the ground. Thorne says the world and Brooke will come to see Thorne as the person that freed them of Ridge.
