Bridget confronts Deacon with everything she knows. She throws his clothes and belongings into a pile and orders him to get out. Bridget tells Deacon that he has no taste, no style, no class, and she can‘t wait to get him out of her life. She gathers up his things and heads outside. Deacon is stunned when she puts his clothes in a barrel, pours his bourbon over them, and ignites them. When they see fireworks, Bridget reminds him it‘s the fourth of July, and she‘s celebrating her independence – from him. Thorne confesses to Eric that he‘s worried about Brooke. Eric isn‘t happy to hear about Deacon‘s plan to take Bridget on a publicity tour around the world. Thorne assures Eric that it‘s just a matter of time until Bridget sees Deacon for who he really is. Stephanie lets Brooke and the baby stay in the guest house until she‘s ready to face her family. Stephanie notes to Brooke that the baby needs her more than anyone ever has. Brooke needs to build a new life for the baby‘s sake, and Stephanie‘s going to help her. Stephanie points out to Brooke that Deacon can‘t offer her daughter anything but scandal and shame, but Brooke refuses to cut Deacon out of her life.
