IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Chloe was overcome with joy when Kevin told her that he was a match as Delia’s bone marrow donor. Kevin failed to get Chloe to remain mum about his being a match, when she shared the news with Victoria. He approached her, asking her to keep quiet, giving the excuse that he was afraid Nick would make it big news in Restless Style. While Victoria didn’t understand why Kevin would want to keep it quiet, she understood. He was on the verge of telling her the truth but Esther’s arrival prevented him. She learned of what he did and couldn’t stop thanking him.
Cane and Jill met one another at Gloworm. She was still upset about Colin leaving with Genevieve. Cane offered his sympathy for her sadness. While they were together, Cane noticed the bottle of wine Jill was drinking. It was from the Atkinson family wine cellar. Katherine’s arrival dampened things when she accused Jill of getting closer to Cane because she didn’t have Billy there. She told Cane he was no better than his father. Tired of Katherine’s meddling, as well as cruel words, Jill blasted her as being a woman that was unable to have a relationship with her own son, rather settling in on a twisted relationship with her instead.
Victor continued to keep a watchful eye of Billy, determined to make sure he stick to the deal they made. Growing frustrated, Billy snapped at him. Billy was stunned to learn that Michael, who showed up, was a participant in Victor’s little scheme. Michael admitted to arranging everything, even making sure to have hired Dr. Renner to perform the transplant. A disgusted Billy was more than ready to hightail it out of the trailer and to the hospital to expose Victor. Victor threatened to expose Billy’s secret. He went on to tell him that Chloe would keep him from Delia if she learned the truth. Billy believed that even if Victoria learned the truth, she would forgive him. When Victor left, Billy opened up his laptop, he stared at images of Victoria. He soon started to daydream of Victoria coming to the trailer. In his daydream, she told him how much she needed and missed him. He tried telling her what he did, but she didn’t let him. She begged for him to never leave. Snapping out of he daydream, a sad Billy realized that he wouldn’t be a hero.
Still trapped in the wine cellar, Colin bemoaned that Genevieve made sure to keep him fed. Gloria, in the meantime, babbled on about herself and her fabulous sons, as well as how a bookie business was being done at Gloworm. Colin chose to ignore her when she requested he share his past with her. He stumbled on to a safe during his search. Before Gloria could see it, he covered it up. After drinking more wine, Gloria passed out, leaving Colin making his way back to the safe. In the meantime, Cane showed up at the Atkinson house and headed downstairs to the wine cellar. Gloria, nor Colin heard his knock on the door.
At Tucker’s apartment, a contrite Abby told Ashley it wasn’t her intention to get her into trouble. She, however, didn’t hold back in her belief that Tucker was a murderer. A furious Ashley told Abby that when she tries her best to hurt Tucker, she is also hurting her. Tucker, meanwhile, was telling Devon to be on his guard when it comes to Katherine. She was only using him to get back at Tucker. Devon, however, didn’t take his words too seriously. Tucker left and headed back to the apartment, where he overheard Ashley and Abby’s conversation. He interrupted their conversation and blasted Abby for what she did to her own mother. He told her if she didn’t like the two of them together it was too bad. Ashley soon hopped on the bandwagon and Abby that either she accept their relationship or stay out of her life. Abby chose to walk out of the apartment. Alone together, Tucker questioned Ashley’s interrogation with Ronan, but she shared about how she was in the park the night of Diane’s murder. They each promised one another that no matter what, they wouldn’t keep things from one another.
At the hospital, Kevin learned that Michael was the one that helped Victor set up the faux donor. He told him he wanted it to be him because he knew that his heart truly belonged to Delia. Jill and Cane soon arrived, learning of Kevin being a match. Chloe wanted to celebrate her daughter having a donor. When she spotted Victoria outside Delia’s hospital room, she realized she was still trying to get in contact with Billy. She told Victoria that she had to give up on believing that Billy would do the right thing, because it only led to disappointment. She told Victoria that Billy would never be allowed back into Delia’s life. Once Chloe left, Victoria sent off the email to Billy. Back at the trailer, Billy got the email and was tempted to write back. He again had another daydream, but this time, Victoria wasn’t at all pleased to see him, telling him that he shouldn’t have returned.
At Gloworm, Abby vented to Devon about how Ashley once again chose Tucker over her. She said that as far as she was concerned she didn’t want to see her mother or be in her life. Devon lectured her, telling her that she needed Ashley in her life. He told her it was time to stop hurting her mother and take the high road.
