Bridget arrives and Eric asks her to go look in on Stephanie and help her get ready. Bridget and Stephanie talk and clear the air. Bridget admits that she agrees with Stephanie about Massimo trying to put weird ideas into her head about Ridge. She tells Stephanie that Ridge wants the family back together as much as Eric and won't stand for interference from Massimo.

Ridge goes to see Massimo to tell him that he couldn't bring himself to tell Eric the truth - that Eric is not his father. As he suspects, Massimo does not take the news well. Massimo argues that if Ridge decides to follow this decision, it will mean the end of his family line. He tells Ridge that all his life all he's ever wanted was to have an heir. Ridge responds by telling Massimo that family is about more than just having the same blood. He asks Massimo why he can't be content with Ridge knowing who his biological father is and letting it go at that. Massimo says he wants to also be as much a part of Ridge's children's lives as Eric has been. Ridge tells him he can't allow that. It would be too hurtful to Eric and confusing for the kids. Ridge wants what Eric wants, to see the Forrester family reunited. He will not do anything to stop that from happening and he tells Massimo that if Mass can't respect his decision or does anything to prevent Eric's wishes from happening, then Massimo will risk losing Ridge's acceptance of him as his father. Massimo is really angry. After Ridge leaves he sits at his desk talking to himself. He says, he can't stand by and watch Eric and Stephanie make another attempt at a marriage that won't work. He also says he can't allow his son and his son's mother to be a part of a lie. He believes that once Eric learns the truth, it will be over between Eric and Stephanie. Massimo is determined to do something to stop the renewal of marriage vows. He plans to crash the wedding and tell Eric and the rest of the family the truth.
