As a shaken Thomas watches from the terrace above the pool, Rick apologizes to a bikini-clad Amber for his past harsh words and asks her to forget about Thomas so they can start over. Amber can't believe it and reminds him of how he turned her down so many times before. As Rick hugs Amber, Thomas tells Stephanie and Brooke that Amber wouldn't do this to him. Rick continues to "work" his ex-lover, insisting that she's making a mistake by being with Thomas. He also reveals that Stephanie told him about the pregnancy scare and urges her to end things with Thomas. Thomas' faith is renewed when Amber shouts out to Rick that she's in love with Thomas Forrester. Suspicious of Rick's sudden change of heart as Stephanie and Brooke come to the pool, Amber guesses that she's been set up by Stephanie and blasts her for using a tired old ploy to try to ruin her relationship with Thomas. She also points out how Stephanie, Brooke and Thomas acted without concern for Thomas' feelings. However, Amber urges them to end their scheming and work to unite the family, pointing out that she has Brooke and Stephanie working together. With Nick's back to his mother's table at the Caf? Russe, Felicia offers a play-by-play description of Deacon and Jackie's dinner date for him. Felicia tries to downplay Nick's concerns for their relationship and reminds him they don't know what they're saying. Suggesting they go back to his boat to end the evening, Nick strops by his mother's table to greet them and then leaves. However, Nick decides to follow them as they leave the restaurant and is further rocked when he spots them together in her bedroom.
