Ridge unburdened upon Taylor his feelings about Deacon and Brooke. Taylor admitted to Ridge that she'd always love him. Brooke extended an olive branch to Taylor and was taken aback by Taylor's reaction to Brooke wondering about Taylor's dating life. Taylor overheard Finn and Steffy turning Sheila down for Christmas and suggested that they invite Sheila to their family gathering.
