At Forrester Originals, Ridge told Stephanie that Nick knows that Ridge killed Shane. Ridge predicted that it is just a matter of time that before Nick proves that Ridge killed Shane. Ridge was aware that Nick had been asking Phoebe, Ashley, and Stephanie a lot of questions about the night that Shane was killed. Ridge told Stephanie that Phoebe told Nick that Shane had been at Forrester Originals the night that Shane was killed. Nick learned that Ashley was in the building the night in question. Nick had spoken to Ashley who disclosed that Ridge had canceled their date for an emergency business call to Sidney.

At the Insomnia Café, C.J. showed Phoebe and Rick the video of them singing together that had been posted on the internet. Constantine noticed Rick and Phoebe's video on the internet.

At Constantine's invitation, Phoebe – minus Rick who is busy with Ashley -- hangs out at his recording studio and they chat it up about her becoming a recording artist and him beginning his own recording label. She meets Todd – sound mixer to the stars and shares one-on-one time with Constantine.
Ashley comes clean to Rick at Forrester Originals – telling him about the night she thinks Shane was killed in the Forrester Originals building. She and Rick discuss her hearing a gunshot – not the freight elevator as Stephanie had suggested. Rick says he believes her. He knows Phoebe did see Shane – who was unhinged -- at the office that night and called security. Rick believes it may have been Ridge who disposed of Shane's body on Nick's boat, and he believes Nick is telling the truth.
At Nick and Taylor's, Nick takes a call from Steph that she wants a face-to-face meeting with him at her place. After Nick leaves for Stephanie's, a police officer arrives with a document, and Taylor signs for it -- a restraining order for Nick to stay away from the Forresters.
At the Forrester mansion, Stephanie tries to persuade Ridge to go to Paris since she already told Taylor and everyone that's where he went. She tells him she fears that if Taylor talks to him, he won't be able to lie to her. Ridge calls her on the lies she's telling, and wonders aloud when the lies will catch up to her – to both of them. She tells him to let the police handle the investigation. So far, no one is catching on, and they won't. In comes Nick questioning why Steph wanted to see him. Playing him for a fool, Steph fumes about Nick accusing her and Ridge of framing him – upset that he's shared his theory with Taylor since Ridge is the father of her children. Not all of them, Nick quips telling Steph that Taylor is pregnant, and he plans to be around to see his children grow up. She's taken back for a second, then disagrees coyly saying that he will be behind bars sooner than he thinks. Ridge walks downstairs with a suitcase surprising Nick who says he thought he was in Paris. Ridge says he doesn't owe anyone any explanations. Ding-dong the police arrive asking Nick if he has any weapons, and he's surprised, asking why he would have weapons. The police arrest him for violating the restraining order that Steph took out against him. Shocked and unaware of the restraining order conveniently delivered to his house while he was at Steph's, he insists Stephanie called to invite him there, but she denies it saying how glad she is the police came so quickly because she fears what would have happened if they hadn't shown up. As they take Nick away in cuffs – yelling that she'll go down for this -- Ridge looks at his mother in amazement asking about the restraining order. She hugs him, and he looks distraught.
