Thomas lashes out at Ridge.
Ridge was furious when he finally learned about Caroline's night with his son, but he refused to tell Thomas that he knew what happened. But when Ridge caught Thomas having an inappropriate relationship with an intern, he knew he needed to say something. Angry, Ridge told his son that he couldn't just take what—and who—he wanted and just get away with it.
Thomas felt his father was being unfair, claiming he wasn't doing anything Ridge hadn't done at his age. In a fit of rage, Thomas forcefully punched Ridge in the face.
