Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Steffy discussed the latter’s fear that Sheila will attempt to insinuate herself into her and Finn’s life. Ridge promised to do everything in his power to keep Steffy’s family safe; he then nostalgically recalls his own biological father, Massimo Marone, coming into his life. Talk returns to the subject of Sheila; Steffy insisted that Finn understood the danger that she posed.
