In Paris, Hope and Wyatt made love in Hope's hotel suite. Hope declared that Paris was her favorite city in the world. After another lovemaking session, Wyatt said that he was glad Aly hadn't walked in on their lovefest. Hope said that she couldn't believe that Aly had walked in on them earlier. Wyatt wondered how Aly had obtained a key, and Hope had no idea.
Hope said that Aly had some delusional idea that Hope was supposed to be the ideal woman according to Aly's standards. Hope lamented that she had tried to explain to Aly that Hope no longer tied her personal values to her Hope for the Future line.
Hope and Wyatt worried that they'd had a glimpse of the true Aly. Wyatt recalled that Hope had told Aly that Hope and Wyatt had a committed relationship. He added that Paris would be the perfect place to start married life when they were ready. He teased that he could have the RV flown over to Paris, and he could park it outside the Eiffel Tower. Hope and Wyatt laughed, and Hope kissed him. Later, Wyatt ordered champagne to celebrate their time in Paris.
At Forrester International, in Thorne's office, Thorne called the pilot for the Forrester jet to set a flight plan so that Brooke could return to Los Angeles the following morning. Thorne said that while Ridge had spent a year in Paris, his old roommate had been in touch with Thorne. Ridge's roommate had called again and sent his regards to Brooke.
Brooke laughed. She shared with Thorne that Bill had thought that Ridge and his former roommate had become a couple. Brooke said that Bill had become desperate and still wouldn't give up on Brooke. Thorne called Bill an egotistical jackass.
Thorne wondered if Katie would get together with Bill again, but Brooke said that Katie wanted nothing to do with Bill. Thorne added that Katie deserved someone much better than Bill. Brooke suggested that Thorne and Katie would be a good match, but Thorne laughed and said that Katie deserved someone even better.
Later, Brooke returned to the hotel suite, and she interrupted Hope and Wyatt to announce that she planned to return home to Ridge. Hope suggested that she and Wyatt could wrap everything up for the HFTF line in a few days, and they could all fly home together. Brooke refused. She said she wanted to leave the next day.
Hope said she would try to wrap things up to go with her mother, but Brooke said it was unnecessary. Brooke planned to return to Los Angeles the next day no matter what. Hope agreed.
Hope said she had some work to do on her laptop, and she excused herself to wrap up a few things in the other room. Once Hope was in the other room, she immediately called Katie.
In Los Angeles, at Katie's place, Katie and Ridge were in the living room. Katie had put Will to bed, but she said Will had been restless. Ridge volunteered to read Will a story, but Katie said he was fine. Katie wanted to discuss their day in the park.
Ridge again professed his love for Katie. They kissed, and Katie wondered what would happen next. Katie said that she had spent years living from one crisis to the next. She wanted to close out the world and spend all her time with Ridge.
Ridge agreed they had no way of knowing what would happen next, but he wanted to enjoy their time alone together. They kissed and shared some red wine.
Katie and Ridge agreed they would try to make people understand what they had found in each other. Ridge lamented that he had known Katie for years but had really just seen what a beautiful and wonderful woman she was.
Ridge wanted them to break the news to Brooke together. Katie insisted that she had to meet with Brooke first and alone. Ridge argued, but Katie refused. They cuddled and kissed some more.
The phone rang and interrupted them. Katie noted that it was an international call. She answered, and it was Hope, who advised Katie that Brooke had scheduled to return to Los Angeles the next day. Hope wondered if Katie and Ridge had figured out their feelings. Katie told Hope that she and Ridge were in love and planned a future together.
Hope said that her mother would be heartbroken. Brooke picked up the phone extension in the other room and realized that Hope was on the phone. Hope said that she had been talking to Katie to see how Katie had been feeling. Brooke asked about Katie's health and then said she would return the next day in order to start her life with Ridge.
After Katie had hung up, she told Ridge that Brooke would return the next day.
