Massimo tells Eric that he withheld the secret of Ridge's paternity because of Stephanie. Eric backlashes by telling Massimo that he can have her and all her lies.
Massimo declares that Ridge accepts his paternity and is trying to reconnect himself and his children to Massimo.
Eric swears that this will never happen. Massimo threatens that he won't let Eric take his rightful heirs from his grasp. Ridge enters and stop the battle short by telling Massimo to get out, much to Eric's pleasure. Ridge tells them both, Massimo and Eric, that he will decide the fate of himself and his children.
When Ridge calls Massimo "father", Eric is stunned, and realizes that maybe what he and Ridge shared wasn't so special. Eric leaves abruptly, as Ridge tries to explain.
Jackie has a hurtful flashback of Massimo offering her money to "pay her off" with Nick.
Joanna enters and offers her a house rent free if Jackie accepts the job offer. Jackie is so impressed by the house and is surprised that Foresters own it. Jackie agrees to move to L.A. and to work for the Foresters.
Nick comments that Bridget didn't appreciate his boat either and say how both Brooke and Bridget are "two of a kind".
