Past History

While in college, Stephen married Beth Henderson and they had four children. He would leave his young family behind though since he felt that Beth had never been able to get over her college sweetheart, Eric Forrester. Stephanie eventually hired Conway Weston to track him down and bring him back to LA in order to keep Eric away from Beth. Two of his daughters flew to him and begged him for a return, but he was greeted far more coldly by Storm and Brooke. Determined now, he worked hard to regain their trust. Saving the life of Katie at a barbecue helped put him in their good graces. After reconciling with Beth, the couple moved to Paris after he was given a job overseas. Little did they know that the move was orchestrated by Brooke to keep Stephanie from telling Ridge about Eric and Beth's relationship.

While away, Massimo Marone offered him five million dollars to convince Brooke to move to Paris with he and Beth. Although he initially refused, Massimo upped the offer by threatening to ruin Brooke's life. Accepting the offer now, he convinced Brooke that his heart condition was more severe than it was and this proved to be enough to convince her to move. When the truth was revealed, both Beth and Brooke were angry and disgusted by this betrayal and left him behind.

He would follow them to LA, but only at Ridge's request. He and Ridge had kept in contact, mostly so that he would have the inside track on his daughter's life. Ridge asked him to return so that she could put their problems behind and then move on...with him. It was this last part that Stephen had problems with, particularly after learning that Ridge had taken advantage of his daughter after an overdose. To Ridge's dismay, he became a champion of Nick and Jackie as well as moving closer to Ridge's ex-wife Taylor. Seems he and Beth had divorced, at least in part because he would forever feel inferior to Eric Forrester.

When Brooke found out about Stephen's relationships with Taylor and Jackie, she severed her relationship with him and he moved back to Paris.

Donna requested Stephen return to LA after Brooke was raped. When he learned that Stephanie had unwittingly set the attack in motion, Stephen threatened Stephanie and then went after Eric. However, when Stephen went to see him, he found Donna and Eric in bed together. Even though Stephen had a lot of animosity towards Eric for their past with Beth, Stephen eventually accepted his daughter’s relationship with his nemesis.

After years of estrangement, Stephen and Storm finally spoke, but it ended with Stephen lashing out at his son for not being their for his sisters. Seeking retribution, Storm shot Stephanie and set Stephen up to take the fall. Stephen discovered what his son did and to make up for driving Storm to such actions, he tried to take the blame so Storm wouldn’t have to. However, Stephen’s daughters eventually told Stephanie the truth and Katie convinced her not to press charges against Stephen and to keep quiet about Storm.

Later, Storm intentionally shot himself in order to give his heart to an ailing Katie and Stephen was a rock for his daughters. He also was there for Beth and their girls when Beth returned and revealed that she had a series of small strokes and was in the early stages of dementia. Beth received treatment that seemed to help and she and Stephen let go of their bitter past and set out to give their relationship another try.

Stephen and Beth left town, but returned when Beth's Alzheimer's became too much for him to handle on his own. Eric invited them to move into the mansion, but after a confused argument with Stephanie, Beth fell in the poll and drowned.

Stephen wound up in jail after using Pam to try to extract his revenge on Stephanie, whom he blamed for Beth's death. Pam stood by him, and after his release they traveled together. Stephen recently announced his engagement to Pam.
