Caro­line is sur­prised when Thomas shows up on her doorstep in New York.

TV Soap - - Daytime -

As Thomas spends more time with Dou­glas, it’s ev­i­dent to Caro­line that his heart be­longs to Sally. Not even Thomas and Caro­line’s shared con­nec­tion as par­ents can shake his love for Ms Sally Spec­tra. Re­al­is­ing that hop­ing for a rec­on­cil­i­a­tion is an ex­er­cise in fu­til­ity, Caro­line (Linsey God­frey) de­cides to give up her quest and re­turn to New York with Dou­glas (Leighton and Jack­son Rapo). When she stops by to bid her Un­cle Bill (Don Di­a­mont) farewell, he crit­i­cises her for sur­ren­der­ing so eas­ily. When Caro­line af­firms that Thomas (Pierson Fode) is com­pletely com­mit­ted to Sally (Court­ney Hope), Bill scoffs that the re­la­tion­ship is doomed to fail. Such a dec­la­ra­tion doesn’t buoy Caro­line’s spir­its and she wants to leave Los An­ge­les with what­ever dig­nity she has left. Caro­line con­cedes that she pre­vi­ously turned down Thomas’s of­fer to be­come a fam­ily and now she re­grets that de­ci­sion.

Bill once again tries to con­vince his niece to stay and ght for Thomas but Caro­line points out that it would be a los­ing bat­tle. She kisses her un­cle good­bye and heads to the air­port.

Bill is frus­trated be­cause he was cer­tain that his niece would lure Thomas away from Sally, thus leav­ing Spec­tra in a nan­cial bind. Now Bill’s dream of tear­ing down the Spec­tra ware­house to make way for his new sky­scraper has hit an­other ob­sta­cle.

The next day, Bill hatches an in­ge­nious plan and calls Thomas. Bill Spencer in­forms young Thomas Forrester that Caro­line has left for Man­hat­tan and has taken Dou­glas with her. Thomas ad­mits that Caro­line has a sta­ble life in New York but prom­ises to visit his son soon.

Bill then lies that his niece is dy­ing from an au­toim­mune con­di­tion and trag­i­cally she only has months to live.

Thomas is taken aback and stammers that Caro­line looked so vi­brant and well but Bill coun­ters that her health will de­te­ri­o­rate quickly. Thomas is dev­as­tated by the shock­ing news.

Bill calls Caro­line and re­lays the de­tails of his scheme. Caro­line is horri ed and scolds her un­cle for his un­der­hand tac­tic. Bill pre­dicts that Thomas will soon be propos­ing mar­riage and Caro­line is in­trigued. How­ever, she says the de­cep­tion will fall apart when she doesn’t look like she’s on her deathbed.

Bill ex­plains that Caro­line will have a mir­a­cle cure and by that time, she and Thomas will be in love and happy. Caro­line un­easily de­cides to give Bill’s plan a try.

Mean­while, Thomas ap­proaches Sally and dis­closes Caro­line’s health cri­sis. Thomas laments that he needs to be with her and their son dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time. Sally tear­fully ad­mits that he must do the right thing and they de­clare their love for each other.

Sally is crushed when Thomas walks away and he’s deeply up­set as well. Later, Caro­line is sur­prised when Thomas shows up on her doorstep in New York. “Maybe this will all work out for the best af­ter all,” Caro­line says to her­self.

How­ever, Caro­line will soon learn the dif­fi­culty in main­tain­ing such an elab­o­rate hoax. TVS
