IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Detective Mauro was pleased with the progress that Ronan was making on the case. He studied one of the pillows that were in Diane’s suite, wondering if it was a clue of some sort. As he was looking at that, a police officer came to him with a torn page from the diary belonging to Diane. Ronan read the torn page and was quick to make his move on the suspect that was listed from what he read.
Phyllis was at the Athletic Club when Ronan arrived. He purposely shared that he was narrowing his list of suspects and that Nick and Ashley were both on the top o the list. Phyllis argued that many people were in the park that night; not just Ashley and Nick. Ronan, however brought up the telephone calls between the two of them the night Diane was murdered. When Phyllis left in a hurry, Ronan was more than pleased to have rattled her.
Nick was upset to get a ransom note in his mailbox, demanding $50, 000. The first person that he called was Ashley. Together, they both believed that Adam was behind the note. Nick expressed being frustrated by the threats and shared that he was more than determined to keep the phone records from coming out. As the two were talking, Phyllis showed up. She told them that she ran into Ronan, who brought their names up in discussion. Before Phyllis could go on with what she was told, Ashley had to leave when she received a phone call from Abby. Nick told Ashley that he would be telling Phyllis everything that had happened. Once alone, Nick told Phyllis everything, including the threat for money. Phyllis offered to help Nick by setting up a meeting with the cash. She would capture the person behind the threats on a recording. Nick was happy that he opened up to Phyllis. The two shared a steamy kiss before Nick left to go get the ransom money.
Abby went to Victoria’s house. She was surprised to see Victor there. She shared the news that she had planned on going to college. Just then, Victor and Abby received an alert on their phones, while Victoria received the same on her laptop. The alert was a headline about Victor and Abby being questioned about Diane’s murder. Victor deduced that it was Ronan’s doing. Victor gave Abby a warning: don’t let the likes of Ronan get to her.
Ronan, meanwhile, met Adam at the Athletic Club with the information about the diary. Adam didn’t know that she had even written about him in a diary. Ronan pulled out the torn diary page and shared the information that Diane had written about him wanting to kill her. Ronan pointed out that it was after his indictment. Adam placed the blame on Ronan, stating that he was doing whatever he could to frame him. Ronan said he either go with him to the police station willingly or he’d drag him down there himself. When they got there, Adam refused to implicate himself. Just at that moment, Victor stormed into the office, demanding to know why Ronan had leaked information to the papers about him and Abby being questioned for Diane’s murder. Victor told Ronan he was not at the park when Diane was killed; Adam piped in that he wasn’t there either. Not backing down, Ronan played the tape of Adam and Victor. He was confident that the tape could do a lot of damage to them both, but Victor said that that tape was recorded without either of their consent. He threatened to sue the police station and stormed out of the police station. Adam attempted to leave but Ronan threatened to arrest him based on the information found in the torn diary page.
Heather’s arrival messed up Ronan’s attempt in making arrest against Adam. She told him that there wasn’t enough for him to go on in order to make the arrest. Ronan, however, felt that Heather was focusing more on protecting Adam. Ronan had no choice but to let Adam leave the police station.
Ashley went to Victoria’s where she met with Abby. She was shown the online headline about Abby and Victor. Victor returned to Victoria’s and told Victoria and Ashley that they were in fact questioned. Abby was scared that the tape of her confession would be found. Ashley learned that Victoria was already aware of the taped confession. Abby admitted that she was there when Ronan opened the lockbox, thinking that the tape would be in there. She shared with the group that Ronan found Diane’s diary in the box instead.
Nick and Phyllis were at the warehouse. Phyllis was hidden with her phone in hand. Nick called out to the person he was to meet, demanding that they show their face before they got their money. Nick and Phyllis both were floored to see Ronan emerge, along with Det. Mauro and a police officer. Ronan took them down to the police station. There at the station, Ronan read Nick the riot act for trying to hide his cell phone information. Nick, however, refused to talk to him without his attorney. It didn’t matter to Ronan. He revealed that Diane’s found diary could have been motive for them both wanting her dead.
Determined to rattle more cages within the Newman/Abbott household, Ronan called Abby. He requested she put him on speaker phone, aware that she was with Victoria, Victor and Ashley. He told Victor that the paper would place an apology to him for putting his questioning in the newspaper. Ronan then shifted the gears and started to ask Abby what Diane had on her. Before Abby could answer, Victoria spoke up for her. During the phone interrogation, Ronan told Victor that it would be in Abby’s best interest to come clean. He also shared about Ashley admitting to have gotten into an argument with Diane, and Victor being at the park that night. He told Victoria that because of that information about her father, it blew her alibi out of the water. When Ronan failed to get them to confess, he hung up the phone. Victor and Ashley both thought that Ronan didn’t have any solid proof on any of them.
Alone together, Victoria told Victor that she saw Victor with Diane the night she died. Meanwhile at the police station, Ronan went back to the pillows that were at the police station. He soon realized that they were clues about each of the suspects. He placed his focus on the ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ pillow. He tagged that to being about Abby. He soon cut open the pillow and found the memory stick inside.
Adam saw Heather at Crimson Lights, where he thanked for getting him out of staying at the police station. Heather, however, corrected him, pointing out that it was based on the lack of evidence. When Adam brought up the thought that the diary could have been forged, Heather threw it in his face that he did the exact same thing to Victor.
Adam set up a meeting with someone. When he got to the warehouse, he called the person out, telling them that they were getting out of hand. He lectured that trying to set him up for Diane’s murder was a big mistake. He went on to bring up the diary entry. The person in hiding wound up a little toy monkey. Adam walked off.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Ashley wanted to continue her discussion with Tucker about being CEO of Jabot. Tucker was reluctant to agree about her taking on the role, afraid of how it would go for Jack, but she was confident that Jack would want to share the role with her. Unable to hide the truth from her, Tucker confessed his deal he made with Jack. Ashley was upset that Tucker once again held information from him, but softened after her explained the importance of keeping marriage separate from business. She realized that e was trying to get Jabot back for her.
Devon and Abby bumped into one another at Crimson Lights. He asked if she was aware that Tucker was suing Katherine to gain control of Jabot. Abby thought that Tucker took great pleasure in bullying people around. Devon mentioned to her about how Tucker warned him about doing business with Katherine, accusing her of using him just to get even with Tucker. When Tucker arrived, Abby and Devon’s mood changed. Tucker approached Abby, telling her to give Ashley a call regarding the message she left for her. After he was done talking to Abby, Tucker wanted to know from Devon if he took his advice to avoid Katherine. Devon told him he wasn’t about to pass up a great chance to do good for himself. Abby soon took Tucker to task in his quest to take the company away from Katherine, but he pointed out it was business and that he was doing it for Ashley. Abby scoffed, telling him he’s all about himself. When he pointed out that he’s changed, she laughed at him and told him she no longer believed that.
Neil met with Sofia at The Athletic Club. He wanted to know how she and the baby were doing. She mentioned that she was doing well. Their discussion went from baby to business. Neil thought they should work together to get Tucker and Katherine to settle out of court, but Sofia didn’t agree. She was firmly on Tucker’s side. Neil questioned her integrity, pointing out that not too long ago, Tucker fired her and was all set to have charges pressed against her. Things continued to be awkward for them, and Sofia said that their meeting together was a mistake. She opted to go find Malcolm. Neil commented that it would be the best for everyone if the baby was his brother’s. When Neil left, Malcolm showed up, giving Sofia a pregnancy pillow. He too asked how the baby was. She gave him a sonogram picture to see. She lamented how she wished that the two of them were still together. Malcolm, however, wasn’t ready to take steps in their relationship.
Katherine went to Jabot to see Jack. She talked with him about the lawsuit and asked him if she could count on him for his support in court. Jack, however, was hesitant, due to his deal he already made with Tucker. He commented that he didn’t want to be in the middle of her fight with her son. Katherine brought up how she felt that Jack was more of a son to her than Tucker was. When she pleaded with Jack to help her, he started to feel slightly guilty.
Shortly after Katherine left, Ashley showed up to see Jack, making him aware that she knows about his and Tucker’s agreement. Jack was unsure that he could win against Katherine, but Ashley was confident. Meanwhile, Katherine returned home and saw Neil. He told her that he couldn’t get Sofia to help out. Neil was stunned to learn that Jack wouldn’t be helping Katherine. Katherine wasn’t worried about Jack, feeling that he would still come through for her, but Neil felt she was relying too much on Jack, and cautioned her to be careful. The discussion of Sofia and Malcolm made Katherine think on the revelation that Devon was her flesh and blood.
When Katherine arrived at the court house, she received dagger eyes from Tucker. He headed inside the court room and talked to Ashley, who voiced her concerns regarding Jack’s attitude on whether they had a shot or not. Katherine walked in and told Tucker there was still time for him to back out but he refused. Neil arrived and took his place by Katherine, while Sofia did the same with Tucker. It was Jack’s arrival, however, that caught everyone’s attention. Katherine’s hopes were crushed when she saw Jack going over to Tucker’s side, taking a seat beside him.
At the police station, Paul and Ronan were discussing the latest evidence: Victor’s shoes and Diane’s diary. Handing him to pages of the diary, Paul set off to get information from the manager of the store where Victor donated his shoes. Shortly after leaving, Heather arrived. She and Ronan went at one another over their cases: Ronan making a mean comment regarding Sharon’s plea offer, while Heather criticized his lack of getting an arrest in the murder of Diane.
Adam received a call from Ronan, requesting that he meet him at the police station. When he hung up, Heather arrived. He told her he heard about the plea deal that was offered to Sharon. He fished for details about the murder investigation, wonder what Ronan wanted him for. Heather told him that she couldn’t tell him about the case. He told Heather he didn’t kill Diane. Things became awkward, though between the two of them when Adam mentioned the good times between them.
Victor showed up at the police station and went at Ronan regarding Abby. Ronan told Victor that his daughter was in the clear, but he had something to show him. He showed Victor the shoes that he wore at the park that night. Ronan explained how they located the shoes back to a charity store, even showing Victor the receipt. An annoyed Victor pointed out that anyone could have put on the shoes. He went on to say that Adam could be setting him up for a crime he didn’t commit. When Ronan stepped out o the office, Adam soon arrived, facing off with his father.
Adam and Victor went at one another, accusing the other of the crime. Both were unaware that Ronan had a bug planted in his office. As they continued to lay the blame on one another, Ronan got overly confident that he had evidence against both men. His conversation with Paul was interrupted, however, when Heather showed up. Paul told her that they purposely set Victor and Adam up to see what they would reveal. Back in Ronan’s office, Adam questioned Victor on if he ever wondered what it would have been like for them if things had been different between the two of them. Victor chose to ignore the question and soon huffed out of the office. Adam soon departed and locked eyes with Heather. Both Paul and Ronan noticed the tension. Heather insisted that it was nothing going on. Paul pointedly said there had better not have been.
Ronan went into his office, followed by Heather. Looking at his investigation board, he told her that he was confident that big puzzle to the murder was coming together.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Victor met up with Sam at Crimson Lights. Sam told him that Victoria sprained her ankle while at the stables. Victor was thankful that Sam was there and commented that he didn’t want her to be alone. He did, however, make a comment about Billy. When he questioned Sam on whether she heard from Billy, Sam pretty much wanted nothing to do with being involved, telling Victor he’d have to ask her that question on his own.
At the house, Victoria was walking on crutches, when she spotted Keely sniffing at the closet door. Unaware that Billy was inside, she stood by it, wondering what the dog was sniffing at. Before she could open it, she wound up hurting her injured foot. She took a sit on the chair, rubbing Keely’s fur, while Billy quietly peeked out to get a glimpse of his estranged wife.
At the police station, Ronan was frustrated that they couldn’t locate the missing shoes Victor wore at the night of Diane’s murder. He demanded that his team continue to look for them so he could get some evidence to prove that he was in fact there that night. Meanwhile, Abby, who was at the police station, left a message for Ashley, telling her that she was going to talk to Ronan, stressing that her mother wasn’t a murderer. When she made her way for his office, she stopped dead in her tracks when a police officer came back to report that the manager from the Athletic Club called to report the lockbox that she had. Abby started to sweat when Ronan hurried his way out of his office to go to the club to retrieve the box. Abby immediately followed him.
Ashley and Tucker were having lunch together at Gloworm. She showed him the latest product that was making a dent in business. She expressed how the very product she created was doing so well, but she was not even a part of Jabot anymore. She wanted back in the minute Tucker worked his best to get the company back. She asked on how he’d feel in putting her back as CEO of Jabot once he got the company back. Tucker was hesitant to answer, remembering the deal that he already made with Jack. Ashley said that she felt that Jack and she could work side by side again as co-CEOs. Before she could convince Tucker on the idea, he told her he had an important meeting to get to, and headed out.
After getting off of the phone with Tucker to meet up, Jack’s conscience, John Abbott, appeared. Jack instantly guessed that he was going to lecture him for wanting to take Jabot away from Katherine. He listed all of the reasons why he wanted Jabot back. He realized that he’d be jeopardizing a lifelong friendship with Katherine, but Jack was tired of the family company being used as a way for Tucker and Katherine to get back at each other. Jack was stunned when John didn’t disagree with what he wanted to do; telling his son not to do things half-assed. When Jack turned his back, still talking to his father, the ghost of John soon disappeared. Jack silently thanked his father.
Sam showed up at Victoria’s house. When he walked in, he started gushing over Keely. Billy, however, misunderstood the affections, thinking that Sam was referring to Victoria. Sam continued to gush over Keely, who soon left him to go back to sniff out Billy. The dog soon sat looking at Billy, who was hiding out in the hallway of the house. Sam asked on how Victoria was feeling, and she hinted at how her injure was keeping her from being able to get things; including a mere soda. Sam took the hint and told her that he’d get her a soda. They soon heard a noise, which Sam went to inspect. When Sam was gone, Billy was able to quickly exit the house.
Neil and Katherine were at her home conducting a business meeting. Devon showed up unannounced, excited about finding a possible building. When he proposed his idea, both Katherine and Neil gave their concerns about buying a building so soon. Devon was initially frustrated, thinking that Neil was shooting down his idea because of his past concerns. After Katherine suggested that Devon talk to her legal team and come back with a proposal, she’d give it more thought. She left to take a phone call, leaving Devon and Neil alone. Devon apologized to his father for thinking that he didn’t have his best interest at heart. Neil accepted and told Devon he did believe in him.
Ashley was furious that Abby once again decided to take matters into her own hands. She voiced it with Victor, who told Ashley he warned Abby to stay away from Ronan. After Ashley left, Victor called his daughter, lecturing her on getting mixed up with Ronan; telling her to leave it to him. Abby saw Ronan leaving the club with the lock box. She quickly shared what she discovered with Victor, who again told her to not get roped into what was going on. When they ended their conversation, Abby was on her way out, when Ronan approached her, questioning why she was so curious about what was in the lock box. He took her with him to the police station.
Billy vented his frustrations to the ghost of John Abbott. He shared how he saw Victoria moving on with someone else. He regretted making that deal with Victor in order to save Delia. John told Billy that he made his decision because he was doing what was best for his daughter. John pointed out that he needed to let go of his past with Victoria, or he would only keep himself miserable. Meanwhile, Victoria wrote another email to Billy.
Tucker and Jack met up in his office. Tucker told Jack that once he got his testimony against Katherine, he would make Jack sole controller of all of Jabot’s operations. Jack, however, said that it wasn’t good enough. He wanted Tucker to give him Jabot the minute the company was back in his hands. Tucker was upset that he was going back on their original agreement, but Jack wasn’t budging, pointing out that if he didn’t agree, he wouldn’t testify. Tucker relented and agreed to what Jack wanted. Ashley soon arrived and questioned if Tucker’s meeting was with Jack. When she questioned what they were up to, both men lied to her. Turning to Tucker, Ashley pointed out a past conversation they had: both of them not keeping things from one another. Meanwhile, back at Katherine’s, Neil and Devon were concerned when she shared that she received a phone call from her lawyer. He told her that Tucker was suing her for Jabot.
At the police station, with Abby present, Ronan had the lock box opened. Inside was a journal that Diane was keeping. Ronan told Abby to stay put until he came back. Abby told him that he could talk to her lawyer and walked out. Going to the board of suspects, Ronan wondered what Diane had over Abby. Minutes later, a cop came into Ronan’s office with the shoes Victor wore on the night of Diane’s murder.
