IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Victoria called Nikki to wish her a wonderful birthday. Not wanting her daughter to know where she was, Nikki lied and said she was pampering herself with a manicure and pedicure. She was really at the bar, debating on whether to order a drink. Instead she asked for a ginger ale. Victor arrived at Gloworm and spotted Nikki; he soon approached her and told her that he was confident that Abby wasn't the one driving the car the night Tucker got hit. Nikki believed otherwise.
Back at Crimson Lights, Chloe vented to Kevin that Heather passed her case over to another lawyer. Kevin wanted Chloe to be sure that she wanted to seek sole custody of Delia. Chloe stated that with Billy doing things that could put their daughter in danger, she's going to do whatever to keep her away from it. Shortly after, Chloe's new lawyer, Landon Young arrived, ready to ask questions. Chloe filled her new attorney in about Billy's illegal adoption of Lucy. Landon wondered how her home life was and Chloe told him that she and Delia were staying at the Chancellor mansion. He assured her that her home enviroment was suitable for Delia.
Daniel, now moved into the garage apartment above Billy and Victoria's, tells Victoria that he has to go do a few things and asks if she'd like to watch Lucy until he returned. She was more than happy to do so. He left and soon after, Billy and Rafe returned, sharing the news that the judge learned that it was Phyllis, not Billy, who violated the gag order, but made the promise that the Restless Style wouldn't be involved again in any further violations. Unfortunately for them, Phyllis decided to break into the website once again to write another blog in order to lure Daisy from hiding.
Victor spotted the birthday pastry given to Nikki but before he could say much, Nikki told him he didn't have to go out of his way to get her a gift. Victor gave her one final warning, however about going on with her thoughts of Abby driving the car. Not wanting to listen any further, Nikki left Gloworm. When Victor wrapped up an important meeting, he decided to pay Nikki's bill.
Shortly after Daniel returned back to the Abbott house, he had to run out again. Kevin soon arrived, wanting to know if it were alright if he held Lucy. Billy made comments but relented in letting him hold the baby. Billy soon received a text message, letting him know that another blog went up on the Restless Style magazine. Kevin managed to figure out that Phyllis was using password protection in order to get into the site. Rafe told Billy he needed to talk to the judge to let him know that he had nothing to do with the violation. When Daniel returned, he learned of what Phyllis did. Rafe told them that it wouldn't be in the best interest for Daniel to stay at the Abbott home; it would only risk his custody of Lucy. Daniel decided to move back to the loft.
At the park, Nikki started drinking heavily. She soon decided to head to an AA meeting, where Deacon was talking to the group about how hard it was to work as a bartender, serving drinks to others, when he wanted to drink as well. Nikki walked in on his conversation and started to mock him. She took to the podium and told everyone how Deacon helped her fall off the wagon. She blamed him for her life being the way that it was and soon took those frustrations out on the group; telling them that going to AA was a waste of time After her drunken tirade, Nikki took off; Deacon not that far behind.
Phyllis, still writing her blog was stunned when Victoria showed up, slamming her laptop shut. Victoria snapped that because of her blog, Daniel moved back home with Lucy. The red-head sneered that Victoria would never get Lucy. Before the bickering could get out of hand, Chloe told the two to cool it. Victoria huffed off and so did Phyllis: both at Daniel's door, attempting to buy his affections to get what they wanted. Daniel, however, wasn't interested in being pulled in either direction, and told both women that he and Lucy didn't need their company.
Wanting to help Nikki, Deacon went to the ranch to try to talk to Victor. When Victor opened the door to him, he angrily shut it on him, but not giving up, Deacon knocked until her answered it. Deacon filled Victor in on what happened and told Nikki's ex to do whatever to take care of her. When Victor ushered Deacon out, Victor left and headed to the park, where he found Nikki.
While Billy talked to a guy in IT to get the blog removed, he noticed a gambling link popping up on the screen. Meanwhile, Daisy fell for Phyllis's trap, showing the girl with a ticket headed back to Genoa City.
