Brooke assumes he’s there to gloat about the annulment.

He confirms it’s nice to see “the good guys win” but that’s not what this is about.

“What does that mean, ‘Should have been done?’” she asks.

He claims he just meant his dad should have done this years ago.
She assumes this is all because of something Thomas did.

He accuses her of always hating him. Brooke reminds him she helped raise him.

She doesn’t want them together and Ridge is far happier with Taylor than Brooke.

His son still thinks that what he did was wrong.
