He doesn’t want to be pushed out of his company. He thinks his son Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) is kicking him out already. Eric wants to create his own line for the final time.
This means a lot to him because he wants to stay on top. Eric has a lot in common with Victor, who also wants to be on top for the final time.
The only difference between their situation is that Ridge loves his father even though he’s hot-headed. This fashion showdown could be a fun thing for the fans and the father-and-son duo.
