Furthermore, he declares his intention to take Douglas for the night… Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) confronts Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) and makes her position quite clear: she’s not going to allow Douglas’s removal from Hope’s custody.

Sheila begs Deacon to let her remain his apartment; he hedges. Sheila appeals to Deacon’s better angels, then offers him her sexual services and riches beyond his wildest dreams; the idea of a cash infusion seems to tempt Deacon.
