When Adam asks his father to be there for him and save him Victor refuses and opts to walk out of the young man’s life. On Wednesday, January 21, Billy and Chloe are in for a rude awakening when a friend from New York comes into town with the possibiity of ruining their chances with Lily and Cane.

The Inside Story: Her Two Dads
Brad is thrilled to spend some quality time with Abby at Crimson Lights. As the two are bonding, however, Abby gets a call from Victor. As the two are ending their converesation, Brad’s ego is bruised when he hears Abby ending her conversation with the word ‘dad’ in them. Furious that Victor is once again entering himself in the picture, Brad decides to confront Ashley on the matter. Ashley, who had been reluctant to Victor’s request of Abby acknowledging him as her father, tells Brad that he has nothing to worry about, but also points out that Victor has been nothing but wonderful to Abby. Brad is not pleased to hear that Victor has a close bond with the young teen.
Things get worse for Brad when Victor demands that he step down from his position on the board of directors. Brad tells Victor he’s not about to step down from the board and tries his best to shake it off before having another bonding moment with not only Abby but Colleen. As they are talking, Abby lets slip that Victor has gone to her parent/teacher conference. Brad once again hides his anger and ends their lunch date early. At the conference, Ashley points out to Victor that he doesn’t need to attend the conference, but Victor insists that he wants to be a father in Abby’s life. The moment Brad shows up, it’s on. Brad and Victor have a heated exchange with one another, where Brad tells him that he will never take his place as Abby’s father. Seeing the argument, Ashley quickly steps in and tells Victor that he has to realize how Brad is feeling about his presence. After things have cooled down for Brad, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He has another visit with Abby and he asks her if she would like to come live with him. Abby shoots him down saying that she’s already staying with Victor at the ranch. Brad soon finds himself thinking of another option to keep Victor away: filing for full custody.

A Closer Look: True Identity
Determined to prove that she is who she says she is, Katherine and Amber work together on finding a way to show everyone that she is the ‘real Katherine Chancellor’. Clint, who is in Genoa City spots the two of them together and immediately begins to keep tabs on them.
