He wearily says the only explanation is that Brooke always hated him. Ridge denies that’s true. Thomas argues that it’s true – she’s trying to take his son away from him for crushing an apple with a knife. Ridge blurts out, “She said she hadn’t called! She said to me! She wouldn’t lie to me about it.” He’ll ask her to her face. Thomas summarizes that Brooke said her name on the recording and then lied to him when he asked her about it. Ridge warns him not to say a word, insisting he must give her a chance to get clean. “I will go there and visit my wife.”
