Sally assures Tony that she will be there to liven up the party. Tony asks if she’ll take Massimo with her. Sally wonders if Massimo is a lost cause since he’s still after Stephanie. Tony finds it ironic that Sally’s actually rooting for Eric and Stephanie’s marriage to survive, but Sally thinks it will just put things in her favor for once. Eric and Thorne stay with Ridge while Taylor checks on the kids. Eric gives Ridge a hopeful speech telling him that he can’t lose his best friend. Eric is overcome with relief when Ridge wakes up. Stephanie is insulted when the doctor surmises that there is someone else who could be Ridge’s father. The doctor only knows that given the information in front of him, Eric cannot be Ridge’s father. The doctor attempts to help Stephanie calm down, telling her that right now she should concentrate on Ridge. Stephanie tries to absorb the realization that Ridge may be Massimo’s son. Stephanie goes berserk when Massimo appears and asks what she was discussing with the doctor. She throws Massimo out of the room, leaving him even more confused.
