Phyllis wanted to know what Avery was doing in Genoa City. Avery insisted that she didn’t come because of her. Phyllis ushered her upstairs and the two women entered Avery’s suite. The minute the door closed, Adam, who was lurking, approached the door, trying to eavesdrop in on their conversation. Back inside the suite, Avery quipped that she thought Phyllis would be happy to see her younger sister. An unnerved Phyllis questioned why she was there and once again, Avery pointed out her being there was mere coincidence; she was there to take on Sharon’s case.

Both said they had nothing to hide. They told Michael about the phone calls that Nick had been receiving and the photograph that Ashley receive. Nick said that he believed that Adam was behind both incidents.
Adam made a cryptic call to someone, telling them that he had information. After ending that phone call, he called the airport, making plans to get a flight out of Genoa City. Minutes later, Nick was at his door, demanding to be let in. Nick quickly accused Adam of messing with him and threatened to get even by seeing to it that he was convicted of Diane’s murder. Adam said he didn’t kill Diane. He told Nick to get out and slammed the door on him. He received a call from someone telling him that he couldn’t get a flight. He insisted that he needed to get on that plane.
Back in her suite, Avery wanted to know why Phyllis left when she needed her the most. Phyllis said she couldn’t stay there; she had to get away from there. She hoped Avery could understand.

Phyllis wanted her to stay away from her; stressing that they not mentioned what took place. Crushed, Avery went back to her suite where she called someone to meet her at the Athletic Club to discuss Sharon’s trial.
Jill couldn’t believe that Colin was still at Gloworm. He gloated that he ordered lunch or them, even ordering up Baked Alaska, which was her favorite dessert. Jill laughed at him and told him that he couldn’t even get her favorite dessert right; hers was strawberries and cream. Baked Alaska was Genevieve’s. Colin continued to attempt to sway her but Jill was slightly uncomfortable. When lunch arrived, she said for them to eat quick so she could leave. Just then Jack and Genevieve arrived. Jill blasted him for the company he was keeping. Genevieve was insulted. Both Colin and Jack suggested to go to another restaurant, but Jill wasn’t budging to leave; nor was Genevieve. During their time at the restaurant, Jill took delight in one upping Genevieve with sending over a bottle of champagne. Genevieve hit a nerve when Jill saw her kiss Jack on several occasions. To get back at her, Jill leaned over and did the same thing. Jack told Genevieve he was aware that she was doing it all as a way to show up Colin; Colin on the other hand liked Jill messing with Genevieve. Jill finally gave up the game play and exited the restaurant. Colin shortly left too; leaving the waiter to give his bill over to Jack.
Heather was officially back on the job and Paul gave her congratulatory flowers. Although bummed to be starting at the bottom, she was glad to be working. Her first case was assisting with the Sharon Newman trial. Just then, Spencer showed up to tell Heather that Clifton suffered a heart attack. When Heather offered to take over for him. Spencer agreed to give her a chance.
At Crimson Lights, Eden was frazzled and messing up orders. Kevin thought he was working her to hard. When Heather and Paul arrived, Eden and Kevin greeted them. Heather let Eden know that she could stay at her place for a bit longer Alone at their table, Heather talked a bit about Avery Bailey Clark, letting Paul know that she was going to be tough to beat during the new trial for Sharon. Michael and Ashley arrived at the coffee shop. He stopped at Heather’s table and bemoaned about working on opposing sides in court again. When Heather and Paul headed out, Michael commented on Ashley’s silence. Ashley said that she didn’t feel comfortable chatting it up with prosecutors. After trying to convince Eden to move back in with him, he spotted an obviously frazzled Phyllis zip past him.
In D.A. Walsh’s office, Heather and he were in a meeting when Adam barged in, demanding to know why he was placed on a No Fly List. Spencer pointed out that he was involved in an ongoing murder case and also slated to testify in Sharon’s new trial. Adam pointed out that he needed to be on a flight for a new medical trial to save his eye sight. When Spencer asked if he had documentation to prove that, he passed it over. Heather called and confirmed that Adam was telling the truth. Spencer asked what they should do: Heather said they’d have to let him go. Adam quietly thanked her.
Nick met with Avery, who wanted to let him know about the upcoming trial. She knew that Sharon and he were at odds but also knew that he wasn’t one to see Sharon suffer for a crime she didn’t commit. Nick admitted he didn’t want to see that happen. When Ashley walked in, Nick abruptly cut Avery off, saying they’d have to talk later. When he approached her, he received the phone call from the lab. They said that the markers on the DNA test was that of someone that had the same Y chromosome as he did. Nick was convinced that it was Adam.
Michael approached Phyllis, asking if everything was alright. She snapped out a why would he care. Michael assured her that despite how she took Lucy from Billy and Victoria, he still cared about her. She shakily told him that her past was coming back to haunt her. When he looked puzzled, she shared that she has a sister and she was in Genoa City.

Jill received a text message from Colin. Jack pointed out to Jill that it was clear that Colin wanted to move forward, and wanted to move on with her.

After Nick departed, Phyllis spotted Adam sitting at the bar and joined him. She started to question him on his thoughts on Sharon’s attorney. When Adam repeated her entire name, Avery Bailey Clark, he noticed that she became slightly spooked. He wanted to know why she was suddenly interested in the newcomer. Phyllis lied and said she was doing some research on a story. When Adam said he believed that Avery was way out of her league, Phyllis said she would use his statement as a quote. Adam quickly pointed out that he believed she wasn’t doing a story but wanted more on Avery. He wondered what she was to Phyllis. Phyllis attempted to cover by saying she wasn’t interested in Avery, just merely asking questions. When she headed out to her office, she promptly searched Avery Bailey Clark on her laptop and was stunned to see who it was.
Nick saw Noah at Crimson Lights and was curious how his visit with Sharon went. He admitted that things went well between them. When he shared that Sharon wanted Nick to bring Faith to see her, Nick said it wasn’t a good idea at all. Noah accused Nick of being spiteful and unwilling to forgive Sharon for her choosing Adam over him. Although Nick didn’t outright deny it, he told Noah he wanted stability for Faith and her seeing Sharon in jail would only confuse the little girl. Noah told his father that when Phyllis and Victor wronged him, he was willing to forgive and move forward; so why not for Sharon. Noah went on to hit Nick with the truth about how they were forgiving of him when he walked out on them shortly after Cassie died. Walking away from his father, Noah went to the patio area of Crimson Lights and left a message for Jack: he was going to take the Jabot job after all, regardless of what his family thought.
Avery went to see Sharon in jail, giving her the news that she got her a new trial. Sharon was speechless and appreciative. Avery said that she had a lot of work to do to prepare against D.A. Walsh, who she pointed out thought she to be unprepared. The trial would take place the following week. Avery wanted to know in detail why Sharon went to Hawaii. Sharon shared she went to Hawaii to clear Adam’s name by finding Skye. After writing down everything, Avery told Sharon to maintain her positivity because she was going forward in trying to locate Koa As they were talking, Nick arrived. Avery gathered her things and headed out, leaving them alone.
Jack went to see Genevieve. He wanted to see how she was doing, after hearing about her divorcing Colin. She figured that Jill shared the news with her. Jack wanted to be there to keep her company and cheer her up, but Genevieve said that she was more into celebrating her freedom instead. Jack said that Colin was foolish to let her out of his life. Genevieve admitted that she hadn’t made friends since being there. He offered her friendship and leaned in to kiss her. When things became heated between them, Jack wanted to go upstairs to have sex with her. Genevieve was willing but soon hesitated. She admitted that Colin was the only man that she had ever been with and she was nervous. Jack spotted the picture of Samantha on the mantle and Genevieve talked a bit about her.

He apologized for his actions and told her that he still was very much in love with her. Jill, however, wasn’t interested in playing games with him. Colin once again told her that his marriage was over and that all he wanted was her.
Nick told Sharon that Noah convinced him to come see her. She was curious as to why he was there now; after all, the last time they spoke, he wished she would have stayed dead.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Nick and Phyllis questioned one another about the latest company that they have been keeping. Nick told her that he talked to Deacon, and wondered what was going on with them. Phyllis scoffed and said that she was only using Deacon to get possible information on a story. She turned the tables and asked if something was going on between Nick and Ashley. Nick told her there was nothing going on.
Ashley and Tucker were at Crimson Lights together. He filled her in on his latest go-round with Katherine to take control of Jabot. Ashley thought she should leave it alone. Just then, she received a phone call from someone, requesting her to meet them. She at first told them it wasn’t a good time, but became agitated when the person on the other line was persistent. She gathered her things to leave. When she left, Tucker received a call, telling them that the judge was ready to meet with him. Meanwhile, Katherine, who was with Jack at the Athletic Club, shared the news that Tucker was filing a petition against her. She assured Jack that she had a few things in the works to keep things from going the way he wants. She received a call, letting her know that the judge was ready to meet with them.
Paul was on the phone with an editor giving them a stern lecture regarding a crime scene photo. Deacon, in usual fashion, was lurking around, trying to listen to what was going on. After Paul got off of the phone, he started to ask him on the case. A curious Paul wanted to know why he was asking. Deacon said Diane was his friend and he wanted to know if there was any leads. Paul chuckled, asking why he didn’t attend the funeral. Paul soon told Deacon if he had anything to share, he had better tell him.
Heather was stunned to see Ronan. Her mood soon turned to anger; questioning why Ronan left everyone without a care. Ronan then cut the conversation to call Nick, to tell him to come see him for more questioning. When he got off the phone, Heather snipped that he was still hiding behind the badge, rather than dealing with the way he treated everyone. She soon stormed off on him.
Tucker was trying to get a hold of Ashley but forgot her new cell phone number. He was at the courthouse in the hall, when Jack and Katherine arrived. Tucker laughed at Jack being there to support his mother, but Jack shot back that he wanted to see to it that Jabot stayed put. The two of them walked inside, leaving Tucker still trying to call Ashley. His advisor arrived and told him that it was time to go inside and get things started.
Nick and Phyllis were still lightly squabbling about the whole Ashley situation. Nick said there was nothing going on. She said if there wasn’t, then tell her what was going on. When he said that they sounded like a married couple, she backed off slightly and said that whatever she did with Deacon was her business, if what he did with Ashley was his own. Ronan called back, telling Nick to come to Gloworm immediately. Covering, Nick cryptically gave his okay. Phyllis assumed Nick was going to see Ashley. Shortly after, Nick arrived at Gloworm, as did Ashley. They both realized that Ronan summoned them both together. He showed up, more than ready to question them. He told them both that based on the phone records, they both were in the vicinity of the park the night Diane died. He went on to concoct his own scenario: that Nick, Ashley, Tucker and Phyllis were all in cahoots to kill Diane, and working hard to keep everyone’s bases covered. He told them if they didn’t tell the truth, they would be headed downtown for a few nights in jail. When he received a phone call he told them by the time he returned he better start hearing the truth from them. Alone together, Ashley and Nick worked hard at coming up with a new ‘truth’. Nick would say that he was trying to get a hold of Ashley because he needed to locate Abby, while Ashley would claim that she never got the call because of her dropping her phone and someone picking it up in the park. They both said they would have to inform Phyllis and Tucker of the new alibi.
At the competency hearing, both Tucker and Katherine argued their sides as to why the other shouldn’t be in control over Tucker’s company. Katherine felt that he wasn’t ready to take on the challenges since his accident and needed time to heal. Tucker, however, argued that he did everything that was required of him: occupational and physical therapy, and that his progress should be proven in the medical documentation. The judge said he would look over everything and come back shortly. Jack worried that Tucker was definitely back on the mend, but Katherine wasn’t so sure.
Heather met with Paul. She told about her seeing Ronan. He shared that he was aware that Ronan was back in Genoa City and that he was selected to take on the murder case of Diane. She was upset to know that he was aware of his being back in town but not share the news with her. Paul told Heather that he primarily took on helping Ronan with the case in some effort to make sure that he was doing the job accordingly and to find out why he left to begin with. She suggested that Paul set up a meeting with D.A. Walsh. When he arrived, Heather worked her way into getting him to have her be the one to closely work with Ronan, making sure that he did his job accordingly and to get a sure arrest and conviction. Walsh agreed and gave her the job.
Deacon showed up at Restless Style, still trying to worm his affections on Phyllis. Phyllis asked if he enjoyed blackmailing Amber into having sex with him. Deacon seriously thought that he and Phyllis would make a good pair, but Phyllis laughed in his face. She picked up her phone and stated she had to answer a text. She texted Nick, requesting him to get back to the magazine quick.
Ronan went back to the police station, where he took out a recorder from his backpack. Sitting at his desk he played the conversation that Ashley and Nick had while he was gone. He was more than certain after hearing their lies, that they, along with Phyllis and Tucker, were the ones that could have killed Diane.
The judge returned after reviewing the medical records of Tucker’s progress. He was going to be in favor of having Tucker take back control of the company. Tucker’s lawyer wanted to have the Jabot transferring to Chancellor to be revoked, but Katherine sputtered that if he initially signed off on the deal to begin with, why did he suddenly want it reversed. Tucker tried to argue his way out of it, but Katherine presented the documentation. When the judge looked over the documentation, he requested that Tucker and his attorney look at it as well. The judge started to put him in the hot seat: either he’s competent or he’s not;

Gloria was talking to Jeffrey about putting Deacon on the lunch shift to draw in more business from the women that were drawn to him. Phyllis walked in and started to pry to find out Deacon’s hours for the month of August so far. Gloria immediately refused to help give Phyllis information after she spotted the date on the newspaper Phyllis was holding. She realized that Phyllis was trying to pin Diane Jenkins murder on Deacon. With nothing to go on, Phyllis vowed to herself another way to be done with Deacon Sharpe.
Deacon was at the Genoa City Athletic Club when Nick arrived. Approaching his table, Nick wanted to know why he was suddenly interested in keeping company with Phyllis. Deacon asked him if it was wrong for him to turn to a friend, but Nick shot back that he didn’t think Deacon was a true friend to Phyllis. He went on further to bring up how he helped ruin his mother’s sobriety. Not phased by Nick’s words, Deacon pointed out that he was no better: after all he and Victor both turned their backs on Diane. Nick realized that Deacon was assuming that he had something to do with her death and told him he was with Phyllis that night.
Ronan, who was at Gloworm was setting out to leave when he spotted Heather walking in and taking a seat. Walking up to her, he got her attention. She was surprised to see him standing in front of her.
Adam was sitting at a table at Crimson Lights, working at his laptop when a angry Noah approached him. He wanted to know where the evidence was to clear Sharon. He made a curt comment at Noah and went on to tell the young man that Sharon was responsible for her own situation. Noah told Adam that it was Sharon that went on the line to prove his innocence by going to Hawaii to find Skye, and now he was turning his back on her. Not missing a beat, Adam told Noah that while he was working hard to help Sharon day and night, visiting her in jail, Noah was nowhere there to support her. He questioned when the last time he went to go see her. Adam pointed out that he did everything to help her, only for her to turn to Sam for comfort instead. An annoyed Noah realized that Adam was jealous and it was the reason for him withholding the memory card to clear Sharon’s name.
Phyllis was busy writing her dirt on Deacon at Restless Style when he showed up. He teased her for having so many secrets. He shared that he talked to Nick and realized that the two of them were covering for one another: Nick wasn’t with her all night as he claimed to have been. When he tried to insinuate that Nick could have done something to Diane on the night she died, Phyllis barked that he keep Nick out of what was going on with them. He told her that while they may have a ‘connection’ that keeps him from going to the cops on her, he couldn’t guarantee that he could keep quiet about Nick. He bluntly made the suggestion that she dress sexy for a night out with him so they could discuss it. When he left, a nervous Phyllis muttered to herself that she couldn’t chance writing dirt on Deacon, since it would damage the alibi Nick had.
An unannounced Sam showed up at Victoria’s, inquiring about her apartment above her garage. She was surprised that Victor was the one that told him about her place to begin with. Sam went on to explain that he needed a place to stay, since he would be taking care of some veterinarian duties for a short period time. Victoria realized that Sam was the one that Sharon met in New Mexico, and she became topic of discussion between the two of them. He admitted to Victoria that he planned on staying until he could help prove Sharon’s innocence. Impressed by him, Victoria offered the apartment to him.
Noah was still peeved at his encounter with Adam when Nick approached him. Noah told him about his confrontation with Adam, and the comment he made about not being there for Sharon. He admitted that he was still bitter that she let everyone think she was dead. Nick advised Noah to talk to her and to eventually forgive her. When Nick said he’d hope that Noah would be supportive of him if the tables were reversed, Noah quipped that he doubt he’d ever do anything to get put in jail. When Noah departed, Nick remembered the blocked phone call that he got the threatening comment he made at Diane; he then remembered the text message from the mystery person that stated: “Like father, like son…like prison?”
Avery went to see Sharon in prison. She instantly noticed a change in Sharon and was pleasantly surprised by it. Sharon shared that Victor stopped by and gave her some sound advice. Avery mentioned Sam and Sharon smiled. She then asked if she had any leads in play, but Avery told her that she was still working on it. She told Sharon not to give up or be down, even if things seemed to work slowly. When Avery left, Adam showed up. Sharon wanted to know why he was there. Adam told her that Avery was questioning him and figured if Sharon wanted to ask him something, she could do it to his face. Sharon assumed Adam was there because he knew she was the one person that believed in him. She went on to tell him that she knew he couldn’t walk away from her. Adam, however told Sharon that he was by far over her. Like clockwork, when Sharon told Adam that there was nothing between her and Sam, Sam walked in. Adam called Sharon a liar and walked out, tossing at Sam that Sharon was all his now.
Victor was at the ranch when Ronan and the police rang his doorbell. Victor wanted to know what they were doing there and Ronan told him that they were there to search his house for a pair of size 111/2 shoes. Ronan pointed out that the shoes in question had left an impression in the mud at the time of Diane’s death. Victor said he didn’t recall any shoes and didn’t keep track of all the shoes he had. When Ronan showed Victor the receipt from Fenmore’s for the pair of shoes they were looking for, Victor, still not flinching, admitted that he bought shoes but didn’t like them nor recall even putting them on. Going toe-to-toe with him, Ronan showed a picture of Victor wearing the shoes. The police officers took cue to start looking in the house to search for the evidence. When they came back to tell him that they couldn’t find the shoes, Ronan wanted to know where Victor was at the time of Diane’s murder. Just then, out of the blue, Victoria walked in and told Ronan that her father was with her. Not believing her, Ronan started to grill her on why she hadn’t told that to begin with. Victoria snipped that she was already going through a rough time with her husband leaving her, she didn’t feel the need to add any further embarrassment to herself. Victor instructed Ronan to leave. Alone with his daughter, he told Victoria she didn’t need to give a false alibi when they both knew they had nothing at all to hide.

Lily was upset that Cane broke his word about staying away from her and the babies. He told her not to blame the nanny, he happened to come upon them but he wasn’t going to turn away from seeing his children; he missed and loved them. Lily stressed to them that their relationship was over with. He understood but it was clear that he missed her. While still in the park, a man approached Cane and served him with divorce papers.
Daniel was still waiting for Lily to return back to Jimmy’s bar. He wondered what was taking her so long. Eden and Kevin were keeping him company when Noah, Hunter and Devon walked in. Eden wasn’t pleased at seeing the pretty blonde near her ex-boyfriend. Noah introduced Hunter to Kevin and Daniel, and they all wished Daniel a happy birthday.
Katherine was with Paul at the house discussing what he’s found out regarding Tucker’s long lost son. He told her based on the forensic analysis, they have a good chance of learning the timeframe of the actual letter. Paul deduced that Tucker’s son had to be around the age of 26. Paul, however, warned Katherine not to get too happy on what he’s found out so far; it was still a long shot in finding her grandson. As they were talking, Paul discussed that the mother of Tucker’s son was someone that may not have been just a one- time fling.
Colin assumed that Jill would be pleased with him that he was proving that he loved her by telling Genevieve that their marriage was over. Jill, however, didn’t buy it. She thought it was all an act to win her over. When he got up to leave, Katherine arrived and chastised Jill for hanging around him. Katherine sat down and Jill told Katherine that she wasn’t at all with him. Meanwhile back at her house, still seething in anger at Colin’s bombshell, Genevieve was nursing her hurt hand, vowing that that Colin wouldn’t be leaving her; it would be the other way around.
Tucker was doing his best to go over business documents when Sofia arrived. She brought over new contracts for him. He was telling her that he was making progress in understanding a bit more clearly. He, however did become frustrated at still needing help. Their conversation took on a personal note when Tucker admitted that Ashley and he weren’t on good terms. Sofia in turn shared that Malcolm and her were no longer together, either. She told him about the baby possibly not being his and admitted to have slept with Neil.
Cane met Colin at Crimson Lights. His father wanted him to go spend some time with Genevieve. Cane didn’t want to do that, but when Colin told him that he was going to divorce her, he immediately jumped on him for doing it just to get closer to Jill. Once again, Colin stressed for Cane to go see his mother, telling him that she’s going to need someone to lean on. Cane agreed and headed over there. When he arrived, Genevieve came down the stairs and figured that Colin was the one that sent him to check up on her. Cane told her he was aware of the divorce. A bitter Genevieve told her son that she didn’t need anything from the likes of her husband. Cane told her that being divorced from Colin was the best thing for him. She shot back if he would feel the same way when Lily ended their marriage. He got upset and was ready to leave when she stopped him. She learned that Lily in fact did serve him with divorce papers. Meanwhile, Colin met with his divorce lawyer, determined to get things moving on ending his marriage.
Lily made her way back to Jimmy’s and privately told Daniel about her run in with Cane. He thought that she would want to have some private time to herself, but she told him that she wanted to celebrate his birthday with him. After they enjoyed birthday cake with their friends, the two of them departed. She took him to a private suite at the Athletic Club. Daniel became flustered, not realizing that Lily was truly ready to move forward with what was going on between the two of them.

Devon asked Hunter if she had her internship yet with Restless Style but she said even when it came through, she would still need a job to cover the cost of living there. Noah found a sure solution by telling her that there was a job opening at Crimson Lights for a barista. When he gushed how they could spend more time together while she was working there, a jealous Eden quickly blocked the girl’s joy by telling her that the job was no longer available. She told a crushed Hunter that she took the job. Kevin skeptically went along with it but pulled his sister to the side and questioned her suddenly wanting the job. She said she changed her mind but Kevin said she only did it because she didn’t want to see Noah getting closer to Hunter.
Paul called Katherine and let her know that he found several pictures of Tucker and a woman together. He wondered if the woman could be the one that is kept her son from him. He told her that he would be looking into who the woman was.
Cane entered Jimmy’s to pick up his check. Devon asked him why he was there if it was his night off. When Cane told him, a skeptical Devon asked if he know that Lily was going to be there. Cane said he didn’t know she would even be there. A nerve was hit when Devon told him that Lily and Daniel left the bar together.
Katherine and Jill were still together at Gloworm when Genevieve showed up. Jill told her that if she was there to talk about Colin divorcing her, it had nothing to do with her. Genevieve coolly shared that before he made his phone call to end his marriage, hours earlier, he was with her, having sex together. Jill didn’t believe her.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Sam went to see Sharon in the jail visitation area. Avery showed up to meet them. Sam told her that it would be hard for her to get anywhere with Adam but thought the best place to start would be with Phyllis, who was keeping tabs on him from the very beginning. Sharon disagreed with that idea, pointing out that Phyllis would do anything to twist things and pretty much couldn’t be trusted. Sam said it was worth a shot.
Phyllis ran into Daniel at Crimson Lights and wished him a happy birthday. It was obvious things were tense between the two of them. She wanted to do something with him but he declined. Lily arrived at that moment and asked Daniel if he was ready to go celebrate. Phyllis wasn’t pleased that the they wre together, and started listing off how it was a bad idea, since she was still married. Lily told her that she was getting a divorce. The two of them left before Phyllis could have anything else to say.
Kevin was at Gloworm with Eden when Gloria spotted them, instantly going into mother mode. She wanted to cheer him up since it was his anniversary of being married to Jana. He told her he was doing just fine. When she mentioned Chloe, he broke the news that they were not together anymore. She tried to play match-maker but a freaked Kevin said he didn’t need anyone in his life. He and Eden quickly exited the restaurant.
Across the way, Cane was on his way out when Jill approached him. She wanted him to sit with her and talk. She admitted that while she was still heartbroken and angry at how he treated her, she missed him. She shared the news about Chance and Billy, on how she was unable to talk to him, and admitted that she missed talking with him. He apologized for what he put her through and promised to not do it to her again. While she admitted she was a fool to trust him again, she would slowly let him back into her life, but if he ever betrayed her, it would be over.
Colin went to see Genevieve. He wanted to know if the two of them could have a truce; he no longer wanted all of their fighting to give people more reason to hate them. Genevieve pointed out that he brought out all of his troubles on himself. As for Colin, he wanted to know if she was going to continue to punish him for Samantha’s death. The two exchanged heated barbs with one another. He snatched her by the arm and the two fell into a heated kiss. When she pulled away and attempted to walk upstairs, he cornered her again, kissing her. The two soon headed upstairs to have sex.
Phyllis was back at Restless Style when one of her co-workers told her about a man coming by to see her. Phyllis assumed that it was Deacon but was wrong when Sam appeared, asking her to come see Sharon with him. She balked at the idea, but went anyway. When she got there, Sharon was less than pleased to see her. While Phyllis admitted that she didn’t believe that Sharon killed anyone, she took her to task on her lack of mothering skills, especially to hook up with Sam and let all believe she was dead. Sam tried to get them back on the actual subject at hand: helping clear her name. When Phyllis got a bit antsy, Sam told her to be patient and wait for Avery, Sharon’s D.A. to come back. Meanwhile, Avery clearly wasn’t in any rush to head back to the jailhouse to meet up to hear what Phyllis had to say.
At Jimmy’s Daniel and Lily were settling in for a quiet time together for her birthday. While she stepped away, Eden and Kevin arrived. Daniel was surprised at how much she’s changed. Kevin felt awful for forgetting his birthday, but Daniel understood. Eden joined them and set up a birthday karaoke party for all of them. They all got ready to set up things when Lily got a call. The nanny called to ask about Maddie’s blanket and Lily headed out to go give it to her. While she was on her way, Cane, who was in the park, spotted the nanny with Maddie and Charlie. He started to talk to them and bond with them, telling them how much he missed the two of them. It was at that moment Lily showed up, wanting to know why he was there with the kids. Back at Jimmy’s, after singing some karaoke, Daniel started to wonder where Lily was, unaware that she was detained dealing with Cane.
Colin showed up at Gloworm and wanted to know how Jill was doing. She commented that he just missed his son. Colin quipped how it was nice that she was making amends with Cane and wondered if she would ever feel the same way about him. Jill told him that wasn’t going to happen. Colin continued to profess how much he loved her and in an attempt to prove it, called Genevieve to tell her that he was divorcing her. After getting off the phone with him, Genevieve, who was at the house, went into a fit of rage, destroying the house.
