Rolf brings Kayla at gunpoint to a lab. He has something stored that Stefano donated in the name of science. With it, Rolf proclaims, he will clone an entirely new Stefano. Kayla tries to appeal to Rolf by calling him a genius. However, she’s sad that he clings to the idea that he needs Stefano. She thinks he could put his genius to so much better use. Rolf only cares about this. Kayla then points out his clone will be a baby. It will take decades for it to be the Stefano he remembers. Rolf has a plan and informs Kayla that she’ll be helping him. Absolutely not, Kayla says. She’s a medical doctor, not a mad scientist like Rolf. “Potato, potahto. Frankenstein, Frankensteen,” he replies. Resigned, Rolf says he’ll do the cloning on his own, but he can’t let Kayla leave. He picks up a syringe and threatens her with it. Kayla tries another tactic with Rolf. She says she understands Rolf is lonely. That he misses his friend. She tells him to run and find someone else to share his life with. Emotional, Rolf says there is no one else but Stefano. He brings the syringe closer to her while asking if she will help him clone Stefano, or not. Kayla agrees and asks how the cloning works. Rolf explains they will transfer Stefano’s DNA into an egg, which will develop into an embryo, which he will implant into a surrogate — her.
