Deacon has been a drunk his whole life and this doesn’t seem to be a red flag for Brooke and her daughter. Pacing, Ridge tells her how grateful he is to have someone who understands him to talk to. She says she will always be there to listen to him; it’s her life’s passion.

Sitting down, he tells her she did a great job with Thomas and is always great at listening. She’s missed his smile. He used to smile all the time. “Now that you’re back, maybe I’ll smile more,” he says. She offers to do whatever she can to help, but she’s not a magician. She jokingly tries to make Deacon disappear.

In Brooke and Ridge’s house, Deacon explains to Hope that this mess is all because Ridge can’t handle not getting his own way. Hope keeps hoping that something will get through to Ridge. Her mom comes down the stairs and says Ridge hasn’t been answering her calls. “Where could he be?” she wonders.

Hope asks her mom if she’s okay. Brooke doesn’t know. She hates that Ridge left again. Deacon blames himself. He knows that Ridge doesn’t want his life “contaminated” by his presence. Hope makes excuses for her father and Brooke makes excuses for Ridge.

Deacon brings up Taylor’s return. Hope gets her mom to confirm it. Brooke says that the doctor might be sticking around this time, just as she and Ridge are having problems in their marriage. Hope asks if Taylor would take advantage of that. “She better not,” Brooke says. Hope knows there is a lot of history and worries Taylor might not have moved on. Brooke doesn’t know what’s going on with her, but she believes in Ridge.

However, Brooke is not naive. She likes to imagine them all as one big family, even if Taylor doesn’t look at it that way. She can’t help but feel like Taylor is still in love with Rudge.
