At the cabin, Brooke freaks out to Liam and Hope that Ridge will manage to figure out that she was with Deacon after Douglas tells him what he saw.

Hope is sure no one will understand what the kid says. Liam certainly didn’t. Brooke wants them to get Douglas back before this goes too far. Hope calls Thomas and asks him to bring Douglas back immediately if possible.

At the Cliffhouse, Thomas tells Steffy and Ridge that Hope has some kind of conflict and he needs to bring his son back. Once they leave, Steffy says that was weird. Ridge is confused.

Back at the cabin, Brooke hopes Douglas didn’t have the chance to say anything. She just prays he didn’t see Deacon’s face.

Brooke still doesn’t understand anything that has happened. Hope assures her Douglas won’t have understood anything either.

Thomas and his son arrive. They tell him everything is okay and offer to reschedule his time with Douglas later. After he takes off, Hope tells him that they need to chat.

They sit at a table. As Douglas eats apples, they assure him he doesn’t have to worry or be upset. He tells them what he saw was kind of funny and told Steffy, Thomas, and Ridge what he saw.

Brooke nearly explodes but controls herself. Douglas explains that they all thought he was talking about the song but he insisted he wasn’t.

With some probing from Brooke, he adds that he didn’t mention anything about this happening on New Year’s Eve.

Brooke asks to speak to Douglas alone. Once they are, she tells him the holidays are over and it’s time to forget about grandma kissing anyone.

She asks him to leave that in the past so they can focus on the future. As she gives him a hug, she tells him all is forgotten as he remembers what he saw.

Thomas returns to the Cliffhouse. He admits there was no explanation for why he had to drive his son back. Something is going on but he didn’t ask. He just assumes it must have been something important.

Carter admits that he’s been distracted but he can’t explain. Besides, it’s pointless because it probably won’t go anywhere.
