  1. Steve had no problem telling his daughter, Michaela, to fight for the man she loves. But what about his son, Ben?

    Steve had to have known about Grace and Danny’s relationship. After all, they were “living together” in the house where his son called home.

    What advice has Steve given Ben? Does he care what happens to Ben and Grace’s marriage? Or is he too busy minding his own business?
