Jordan Ridgeway had been living in Salem for just a short time when Kate Roberts felt that something was off about her. It didn't help that Jordan was treating and dating Kate's ex-boyfriend, Rafe Hernandez. Determined to prove that Jordan was bad for Rafe, kate began looking into Jordan's past.
Kate found multiple driver's licenses at Jordan's apartment, all with different names. Kate also learned that Ben was somehow connected to Jordan. Kate kept digging until the evidence lead her to Poplar Bluff, MO, where she showed around pictures of Jordan and Ben. Finally, Clyde met with Kate and told her that he was their father. Jordan and Ben -- or Tammy Sue and Ollie -- ran away from home years before and he hadn't seen them since. Kate told Clyde that they were in Salem. Clyde arrived in Salem to visit, but told Kate to keep it quiet.
