Kristen kisses Tony’s neck and chest, and takes the phone off the hook when it rings. She tells Tony that there are ways of expressing their love that are perfectly safe. While they can’t do everything, what they can do is so thrilling that it’s more than enough for her. She won’t let him go too far, but promises to fulfill his deepest longings. Both are breathless as Kristen undresses and continues to kiss Tony’s chest. As soon as Eric hears from Clarke that Tony and Kristen were drinking and are now alone at Tony’s place, he rushes out. Stephanie glares at Clarke. Stephen explains to Beth how he got Brooke to return to Paris with him and asks for her help in convincing Brooke about his illness. He tells her about Massimo and his offer of five million dollars. Brooke, believing that Stephen was just breaking the news about his illness, rushes in and embraces them. When Massimo calls, he isn’t happy to hear that Stephen lost the card with the restricted number assigned just to this project. Taylor confronts Massimo about his scheme to get rid of Brooke. Massimo insists that her family is secure, but Taylor believes that her marriage could be over if Ridge ever finds out about the deception.
