Ridge continued to fight with Thorne while Eric and Taylor looked on. Ridge said Thorne was throwing tantrums like a child and had ridiculous delusions of grandeur. Thorne told Ridge that people in the company didn’t like him because he was full of himself and threw it in Ridge’s face that he is the true Forrester son, not Ridge. Thorne said he’s sick of taking a back seat to Ridge and that he’s favored Brooke and Hope over Steffy and Thomas for too long. He pointed out that Taylor now had the shares to make that happen. Taylor disappointed Thorne when she decided she didn’t want to put Thomas and Steffy in the position of having to go against their own father. After thwarting Thorne’s takeover attempt, Ridge told Thorne he should fire his insubordinate ass right now.
Thorne tried to get Eric on his side by saying Ridge was nothing like Eric and that he was only loyal to Stephanie. Eric tried to reason with Thorne but Thorne didn’t want to hear it and walked out. Ridge told Eric to let him go and that Thorne had brought this all on himself. Thorne went to his office and saw that all of his things were being packed up and taken out – on orders from Ridge.
Taylor told Thorne she was sorry for everything and wouldn’t blame him if he never spoke to her again. Taylor said maybe the two of them got too caught up in their mutual feelings of being kicked around by Ridge and their “I’m not going to take it anymore” attitude. Then Taylor had a revelation and broke it to Thorne that maybe it wasn’t the right time for her to have a man in her life. She hugged him and told him she did care about him. Thorne tried to hide his hurt feelings.
