Brooke is torn between loyalty to her husband and doing the right thing as the vote to decide whether or not Eric will continue to act as CEO of Forrester approaches. Brooke appears to be swayed after Ridge tells her that he is concerned about his family's welfare but ultimately she votes against Ridge, hurting him in the process.
Meanwhile, Deacon tries to convince Nick that he is truly in love with Jackie. Nick tells Deacon that he should leave their family alone but Deacon tells Nick that forcing him to leave Jackie would be just like the time that Ridge forced Nick to leave Brooke.
Later, Deacon promises Jackie that they will win Nick over eventually.
