As Sasha privately told Zende the truth, Nicole confronted Julius. He initially denied it then emotionally admitted he’d had an affair with Sasha’s mother. No one knew he and Vivienne had been estranged over Myron and Lucy was the only one who offered him support. After Nicole stormed off, Julius found Sasha and called her selfish for telling Nicole. Sasha begged for Julius’ love but he ordered her to leave town until Nicole appeared with Vivienne and forced him to tell her mother the truth. Vivienne was devastated and turned Julius away. Katie spotted Ridge in a news report photo of Dr. Wolin’s accident and went to Forrester, demanding to know if he pushed Wolin in front of the truck. Ridge denied it but did admit Douglas wasn’t his biological son.
