Eric proposes that he and Stephanie take a vacation, but Stephanie thinks they should wait until the situation with Massimo and Ridge resolves itself. While they are talking about how well things are going for Ridge and Taylor, Massimo calls Stephanie and instructs her to come to the hospital immediately. The nurse explains to everyone that Ridge has a very serious neck wound, but is under good care. Eric goes to give blood and runs into Massimo. He accuses Massimo of trying to kill Ridge. Massimo says he saved Ridge’s life by calling the ambulance. Taylor thanks Thorne for getting her to be honest with Ridge and trusting his love. Taylor is glad to be at this new place in her life and is looking forward to the wonderful future ahead of them. Just then, Taylor gets a call from Stephanie about Ridge’s accident. Taylor rushes to Ridge’s side and wills him to keep fighting. When Stephanie gives blood, she learns that Eric’s blood was not a match for Ridge. Stephanie isn’t worried since she is type O. Dr. Fetter informs Stephanie that if she is type O, then Eric can’t be Ridge’s father. A stunned Stephanie stares at the doctor, not believing the words that just came out of his mouth.
