They both realize that they didn’t realize that Gloria was locked in the wine cellar. Michael told Kevin that once she learned that he was the donor for Delia, her focus would be placed on it being a true sign that Chloe and he belong together.
Jack was furious that Victor sent him on a wild goose chase in Hong Kong. He accused Victor of not wanting Billy found, but Victor told Jack that he was there to help. Billy, who snuck out of the trailer, came back and overheard their conversation. When the two men left, Billy snuck back into the trailer with a bottle of liquor.

Sharon came into the jail visiting area to grab a book, when she spotted Daisy reading. She thanked her for running interference with another inmate. Daisy told her it wasn’t a big deal. She told Sharon that she should be thanking her; her good deed helped change things for her. Sharon was curious to know what she was talking about. When Avery walked in to see Daisy, Sharon was curious to know what was going on.
Nick saw Victoria at Crimson Lights. He asked on her injury but she told him that she was fine. They got to talking about how on edge Phyllis was, and how he bought her a little distraction to take her mind off of things. As for Phyllis, she was in the park, when she as served papers, courtesy of Avery.
Chloe still wanted to know why Ronan came back to Genoa City, besides the case. Ronan didn’t feel at ease with telling her the truth and decided to leave. She soon ran into Victoria, who was coming to the hospital. They both were wondering why Kevin was acting super strange about wanting people to pat him on the back for his being a match for Delia.
Sharon wondered why Avery took on Daisy’s case so fast not giving away that she could be doing it as a way to get back at Phyllis. Daisy asked Sharon if Avery was the best lawyer to have. Sharon quipped that if anyone could handle Phyllis, Avery could. Meanwhile, a livid Phyllis bypassed Nick and went to talk to Michael, who was out on the patio of Crimson Lights. She was angry that Daisy is requesting visitations of Lucy. She came even more furious when Michael revealed that Avery was now Daisy’s new lawyer. When Avery shows up, Michael tells her that she just made a mistake in taking Daisy’s case; unlike Sharon, Daisy isn’t innocent. When the two women are alone, Phyllis tells Avery the only reason why she is taking Daisy’s case is because she’s pissed at her. She went on to tell Avery that she was getting back at her for not being there. Nick returned to the coffee house and overheard the end of their conversation. Avery wanted to know what she ever did to Phyllis to make her consider her an enemy.
Kevin showed up at the trailer to vent that he can’t take keeping the secret from Chloe. As Kevin is venting about Chloe’s sudden re-attraction to him, Billy realizes that Kevin still has feelings for Chloe. Kevin, in turn lectured Billy for being willing to skip town when he knew he still had feelings for Victoria.
Sharon had a dream that Avery came to her jail cell to tell her that she was now a free woman. Thanks to the testimony of Victor, she could go home to her family. When she walks out of the cell, the doors close. She turned around and saw Victor in a prison uniform telling her “Now you’re free.” She woke up with a start. Minutes later, Victor paid her a visit. He was concerned when she was distant toward him. She told him she didn’t want him to risk everything he had because of her, but Victor told her he was going to do right by her in testifying.
Phyllis ran into Ronan at the park. She wanted him to arrest her. Ronan wanted to know why he should arrest her. She told him about being forced be bring Lucy to see Daisy. While sympathetic, Ronan pointed out that he couldn’t arrest her. When she shared that Avery was the one that was Daisy’s lawyer, he stunned her when he told her he knew that they were siblings. Before she left, Ronan quipped that maybe she could get a case of chicken pox; since it was currently going around.
At the Athletic Club, Nick approached Avery. He told her that he overheard some of her conversation with Phyllis. He pointed out that Phyllis usually goes full throttle when there is someone she needed to protect. Nick managed to get Avery to talk about the good times that she and Phyllis shared as kids. He learned that to get through the rough times, they’d play video games. When Phyllis tried calling Nick, he ignored the call, but slid the gift he was going to give to Phyllis to her. Inside was a video game.
Jack wanted to know what Victor was up to when it came to Sharon’s case. Victor told him to mind his business. Abbott told him that he’d be keeping an eye out on him to catch him, but Victor smugly walked away. Meanwhile, back in jail, Sharon and Daisy had another conversation. Daisy was confident that Avery was going to give her what she wanted: visitations with her daughter.

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. Jill, however, wasn’t sure but Jack pointed out that it was obvious that Colin was taking steps to end things with Genevieve to be 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.

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.

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.

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…
Lily showed up at Daniel’s to apologize for pulling back from him on the night of his birthday. She went on to explain that Cane and she shared a Parisian themed romantic evening in a hotel room together, and it brought up memories for her. Daniel was very understanding and told Lily that he knew she would always have love for Cane. Lily stressed that she was ready to move on. As the two shared a tender kiss, they took things to the bedroom, where the two eventually had sex. Daniel admitted that he was caught off guard by what took place; Lily assured him that she felt that it was right.
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.
