At Forrester International, Brooke tells Thorne about her chat with Aly, conveying that Aly seemed less negative than she was earlier during Wyatt's presentation.
Thorne asks what she told Aly when Wyatt's name came up; Brooke explains that she told Aly to respect that Hope is an adult who can make her own choices, but while Aly didn't fight her on that, she's not sure if she really got through to Aly. Thorne offers to check on his daughter, but Brooke tells him that Aly went to drop off a press packet at Hope's hotel suite while Hope and Wyatt are sightseeing. Thorne asks Brooke what she thinks of Wyatt. She says she likes Wyatt. More than Liam? Thorne wonders. Brooke answers that she likes Liam, but his relationship with Hope got too complicated, as opposed to Wyatt and his desire to simply date Hope without putting pressure on her.
Thorne asks about Katie. Brooke replies that her sister is doing well, despite Katie's terrifying fainting episode just as Brooke and Ridge were about to make their marriage official. Brooke conveys how grateful she is that Katie's fine, since her reunion with Ridge has brought her and Katie close again.
Thorne asks why Ridge didn't come to Paris. Brooke relays that she asked Ridge to keep an eye on Katie, but she spoke with him earlier and told him she was ready to come home. When Brooke again wonders why Hope asked her to come on this trip, she and Thorne reason that with Wyatt there in Paris, Hope no longer needs her mom's help, so Brooke can return home and marry Ridge. Thorne tells Brooke to call the pilot and file a flight plan immediately, and he'll explain everything to Hope. Brooke wonders if Ridge can pick her up from the airport and take her to the courthouse. Thorne laughs that after an "I do" and a few signatures, Brooke will be his sister-in-law... again! Brooke chuckles that she's not making it sound very romantic, but Thorne tells her to save the romance for the honeymoon and just marry Ridge. Brooke tells Thorne that it was wonderful seeing him, but she's ready to go home.
In Hope's hotel suite, a shocked Aly finds Hope and Wyatt in bed having sex and shrieks for Wyatt to leave Hope alone! Wyatt orders Aly to leave, but she thinks he's the one who should get out. Hope tries to calm Aly down, but Aly insists that Wyatt can't be trusted.
Wyatt and Aly keep shouting at each other, so Hope, despite Wyatt's protests, asks Aly to follow her out of the bedroom so they can talk. Aly tells Hope that Liam would never treat her this way, and that remark sets Wyatt off. Hope tells Wyatt to stay there while she talks with Aly. Once she and Hope leave the bedroom, Aly shakes her head in disbelief over finding Wyatt in bed with Hope. Hope explains that what she and Wyatt, her boyfriend, do in private is their business, but Aly argues that Wyatt's remarks clearly demonstrate a lack of respect for Hope. Telling Aly that it was inappropriate to barge in and shout her disapproval of Wyatt, Hope tells her cousin to get over any problems she has with Wyatt, but Aly fears that people will find out about this and perceive Hope as raunchy and vulgar.
Wyatt peeks into the suite as Hope tells Aly that she and Wyatt are adults. Recalling how she started a Hope For The Future Club at her school to spotlight her belief in Hope's message, Aly asks, "Doesn't any of that matter anymore?"
Hope states that it does matter, but as she explained earlier, her line's focus has changed. Aly argues that Hope has changed because of Wyatt, and she asserts that Wyatt and his mother are dishonest people who will stop at nothing to get what they want. Hope wonders if Aly's closeness to Liam brought this sudden concern on, out of a desire for Hope to be with Liam, but Aly states that she just wants Hope away from Wyatt, who's a liar. Hope tells Aly to take that back, but Aly refuses since she believes she's speaking the truth. When Aly recalls how Hope's message inspired her, Hope claims that her values haven't changed. Recalling that Aly told her about being hurt by bullies in high school, Hope points out how hurt she is by Aly's remarks about Wyatt. "Wyatt's the bully, not me!" Aly retorts, but Hope asserts that she has chosen to be in a committed relationship with Wyatt. Aly reminds Hope how Quinn and Wyatt ruined Hope's wedding to Liam with their manipulations, but Hope counters that she's the one who decided she wasn't ready for marriage and decided to enjoy spending time with Wyatt.
Aly continues to paint Wyatt as mean and disrespectful. Growing both sorry for Aly and weary of hearing all this bashing of Wyatt, Hope advises Aly to leave. Outside the suite, Aly recalls the first time she saw Wyatt kiss Hope, and then she flashes back to her confrontation with Wyatt earlier that day. Pulling up a photo of Wyatt on her phone, Aly smiles wickedly as she uses an app to set Wyatt's head in the photo on fire. Meanwhile, Hope rejoins Wyatt in the bedroom and tells him that he wouldn't believe some of the things Aly said to her. Wyatt decides to pick up where they left off, and they make out in bed.
In Los Angeles, Ridge and Katie sit in the park. Katie questions Ridge telling her that he loves her, but he refuses to lie and reminds her that Hope gave them this time to figure things out. Katie doesn't want to hurt Brooke. Ridge says that he doesn't, either, but they have to figure this out now that Katie knows how he feels. Holding hands, they walk through the park and stop when they see a trio of musicians playing jazz. Liking the music, which starts with a mid-tempo piece and then slows down, Ridge grabs Katie, and they gaze at each other while slow dancing. When their dance ends, they sit down and resume their conversation about their feelings for each other. Ridge tells Katie that he's not going to repeat what he said earlier. Katie claims that it's not the words, it's what they can do. Ridge reminds Katie that he already told her how he feels. Katie gazes at him and says that she loves him, too, and they passionately kiss.
