Later, Ridge explains to Ashley that he's got to forgive her because he's in love with her.

Admitting she saw the kids at the Bikini Bar earlier with Stephanie, Donna assures Brooke that she will be reunited with them soon. She then heads upstairs to get ready for her date. Finding Thorne dressed up for the Caf? Russe, Donna hints that she thinks he's trying to buy her off and adds that Stephanie has said as much.
