Ridge begins to worry about his mother's disappearance. After confiding in Thorne that Maria found Stephanie's purse, they tell Eric who believes that there is no cause for alarm. In a seedy part of Los Angeles, Stephanie realizes that she has no wallet with her. While some frightening figures encircle her car, Stephanie decides to walk off to a nearby hotel. Little does she know that the hotel is long closed and no one in there is inclined to help her by calling the police. Eventually, Stephanie is stranded indefinitely when her car is stolen - Brooke explains to Taylor that she is worried about her lack of commitment to Storm. The news that Ridge has cut off contact with Taylor later prompts Brooke to encourage Storm to finally ask Taylor for an answer to his proposal.
