(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “All My Children,” aired its series finale on Friday, September 23, 2011 with its largest weekly audience in over four years (since week of August 20, 2007), its largest single day episode in more than 4 1/2 years (since the May 11, 2007 episode) and tied its highest weekly household rating in four years (since week of September 24, 2007). The canceled ABC soap managed to place second in households for the first time in 16 years (since week of July 10, 1995) and placed second in viewers for the first time in nearly seven years (since week of December 6, 2004).

With an average of nearly 3 million viewers watching the final hours of their favorite Pine Valley citizens before the soap faded to black in a shocking cliffhanger ending, “AMC” pulled off a feat that not many soaps have been able to do, which was go out with a bang. According to Nielsen Media Research data, “All My Children” averaged 3.5 million viewers (3.475 in actuals) for its last episode which was its largest audience since its Friday, May 11, 2007 episode, where it also averaged 3.5 million viewers. In that episode Greenlee (Rebecca Budig Sabine Singh) interrupted Ryan (Cameron Mathison) and Annie’s (Melissa Claire Egan) wedding reception, while Krystal (Bobbie Eakes) took her new-born baby girl Jenny home for the first time and Colby tried to make amends with her father, while JR mourned the death of Dixie (Cady McClain) and Di (Kelli Giddish) learned some shocking news about Ava/Lily (Leven Rambin).

The last time “AMC” averaged a 1.1/7 in Women 18-49 was during the week of March 8, 2010, when 728,000 Women 18-49 viewers were tuned in. By comparison only 689,000 Women 18-49 viewers tuned in for the soaps finale week. The last time “All My Children” received a 2.6 household rating was on Thursday, July 26, 2007, which translated into 3.4 million total viewers. Meanwhile, the last time the soap managed a weekly audience of more than 3 million viewers was the week of August 20, 2007 when the soap averaged 3,020,000 viewers, which at the time was a loss of 120,000 viewers compared to the same week in 2006. The last time “All My Children” averaged a 2.3 in households for a given week was the week of September 24, 2007, the start of the 2007-2008 television season, in which 2.8 million viewers tuned in.

Sixteen years have gone by since we saw numbers like these, but it was also the last time “AMC” was the second most watched daytime soap. During the week of July 10, 1995, “All My Children” ranked second (only beyond “The Young and the Restless”) with a 5.7/18 household rating/share point. The last time the soap was second in total viewers, however, was during the week of December 6, 2004, when the soap averaged 3.9 million viewers and a 2.2/14 in Women 18-49. The week of January 17, 2005 was the last time “AMC” placed second in Women 18-49 viewers when it had a 2.2/12 rating/share and 1.4 million Women 18-49 viewers. During that week the soap averaged 3.9 million total eyeballs. Interestingly enough, “All My Children” took the #1 spot in Women 18-49 and Women 18-49 viewers during the February 2005 Sweeps period. Afterward, the soap never managed to place higher than 3rd in either category until the week of September 19-23, 2011, when it aired its last five episodes out of the more than 10,700 recorded.

What follows is a breakdown of “All My Children’s” final weekly ratings performance since its debut on January 5, 1970:

  • “All My Children” had its biggest week to week gain in total viewers since the week of December 27, 2004, when it gained 521,000 viewers. During the week of September 19, 2011, “AMC” gained 499,000 viewers.

Although ABC canceled “All My Children” along with “One Life to Live” on Thursday, April 14, both soaps were given a renewed sense of life when production company Prospect Park announced on Thursday, July 7 that they would resume production of both soaps as they transition to a new online television network, which was just named earlier this week as The Online Network or TOLN. Soap Opera Network wishes the cast and crew of “All My Children” the best of luck as they transition to the web beginning in January 2012.

Y&R Recap: Tuesday, September 27, 2011

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “The Young and the Restless” Episode Recap – Tuesday, September 27, 2011.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…

Cane stressed the importance to Ronan of taking down his father with the information that he’s given him. Ronan told Cane that it would take time, and that he would need professional experts to help break the codes. Cane said this was the best opportunity to catch his father in all the illegal activities he’s been doing. Meanwhile, Colin snuck up on Lily, who was in the park playing with the twins. She took him to task on his being there, despite the restraining order she took out on him. Colin said it was mere accident running into her.

Gloria was disappointed when nobody seemed to care that she was missing. When Jill walked up on the conversation, she teased her too, until Gloria took a jab at her. She hit a sore spot when she asked Jill if she heard anything from Billy. Meanwhile, Billy ruefully laughed when Michael walked into the trailer with groceries for him. Michael lectured him for sneaking out of his own place. Billy, however, had a question for him: who the hell was Sam, and what relationship did he have with Victoria.

Victoria was hobbling on her injured ankle, when Sam told her to take a seat. As he was tending to her, he flashed back to his taking care of Sharon when she injured herself back at his farm. Sam told her that he thought she should go have it checked out. Victoria admitted to Sam that she was having a hard time forgetting about Billy.

Noah visited Sharon in jail. He wanted Sharon to go back and accept the deal that the DA offered her. Sharon didn’t want to do a ‘no contest’ because she wasn’t going to admit guilt to anything that she didn’t do. Noah, however, pointed out that she would be missing out on so much in their lives if she were in jail. Noah told her that Michael would be stopping by to see her; just give it some thought.

Neil stopped by to see Victoria. Sam got his ‘vote’ in agreeing that Victoria needed to see a doctor for her sprained ankle. Alone together, the topic about Billy came into play. Neil admitted that he thought about Drucilla from time to time. He admitted that he missed the old Victoria he used to know; the one that set her mind to something and made them happen. Victoria admitted to missing the old her too.

Michael told Billy he wasn’t interested in talking about Sam Gibson. Billy let it slip that he was near the house and Michael immediately lectured him on the risks that he was creating for himself. He told Billy that they were all putting their relationships on the line to help him out. He told Billy that once Delia was well, he would be leaving town anyway. He questioned what he wanted from Victoria. When Michael left, Billy snuck out of the trailer to head over to Victoria’s.

At the prison, Sharon asks Michael if he thought she made a mistake not taking the deal from the DA. Michael told her that he believed that she might have. He told her, putting himself in her shoes, it would be hard to be apart with his family for 28 years. Sharon believed that Avery could win the case. Sharon said she needed some time to think. Sam showed up and she shared with him on Noah’s visit.

At the park, Colin again apologized to Lily for startling her. Cane soon arrived and told his father to leave Lily alone. Colin soon left the park, leaving a nervous Lily to fall into Cane’s arms. She was thankful that Cane showed up when he did. She was on her way to do an errand, but asked Cane if he wanted to join them.

At the hospital, the doctor gave Victoria a prescription for some medication to take for her sprained ankle. He asked her about Reed. She told him that he was doing fine. Victoria’s curiosity got the better of her when he mentioned seeing Billy at the hospital twice within 24 hours. In the meantime, back at Victoria’s house, Billy snuck in. He soon was approached by Keely, Victoria’s new dog.

Colin was with Jill at Gloworm, when she got a call about work. She dashed off, but promised to come back to see him in a bit. After she left, Gloria started to ask Colin if Jill had ever seen him get really angry before. An un-amused Colin refused to talk further with her. Gloria still pressed to know what he was looking for while they were in the wine cellar. He again refused to talk. Gloria received a phone call from Ronan, wanting to speak to her. She excused herself and headed out; leaving Colin wondering what she was up to.

Victoria headed over to Billy’s trailer, peering inside. Back at her place, Billy made nice with Keely, but was found out, when a girl scout came to the door, wanting to sell cookies. When she left, Billy was set to leave, but was forced to hide in the closet when Victoria returned home.

Cane and Lily went to the dance studio to see Madame, Drucilla’s former dance teacher. She wasn’t aware that Cane and Lily were now divorced. Lily admitted to keeping her out of the loop. Neil arrived, after getting a message from the nanny on where she was. Neil questioned what was going on between her and Cane. He soon told Lily that he realized that he wasn’t giving her enough credit on how to handle her life. He told her to do what made her happy.

At the police station, Gloria wanted to know why Ronan was more concerned about Colin’s past, rather than who locked them in the wine cellar. Colin, on the other hand, wanted whoever he was talking to on his cell phone to take care of the ‘Gloria Bardwell’ problem.

Noah was upset when Sharon told him that she wasn’t taking the deal from the DA. Noah assumed that Sam talked her out of taking the deal, but Sharon said that she did her own thinking and she made the decision on her own. She believed she was doing what was right and best for her family. Sharon believed that she would be cleared of all charges. Noah, however, wasn’t so sure.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “The Young and the Restless” Episode Recap – Monday, September 26, 2011.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…

Ronan went to the hospital to see Chloe and Delia. He was happy to hear the news that Delia found a match. Chloe shared the news that Kevin was the match. Meanwhile, at Crimson Lights, Kevin is frustrated at having to keep the secret that Billy is the actual donor. Michael understood how he was feeling. 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. He was getting ready to open it up when Victor came back inside, asking what he was doing.

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.

Victoria decided to write another letter to Billy, hoping that he’d eventually read it. Billy did in fact go to his laptop after hearing the ‘new email’ chime. He was crushed to read that Victoria was ‘doing well and moving on’

On the Next The Young and the Restless

  • Colin startles Lily and the twins

Y&R Recap: Tuesday, September 20, 2011

CBS

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “The Young and the Restless” Episode Recap – Tuesday, September 20, 2011.

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.

CBS

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “The Young and the Restless” Episode Recap – Monday, September 19, 2011.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…

Abby went to Victor to tell him the latest drama she created for herself. She shared with him how she wore a wire for Malloy in an effort to catch Tucker admitting he killed Diane Jenkins. She told Victor how she instead Malloy overheard her conversation with Ashley about the night she was in the park. Victor told Abby to stop confiding in others, but do so with family. He assured her he would take care of everything.

Ashley was still upset that Abby wore a microphone. Tucker asked how she responded to being found out, but Ashley shared that Abby took off before they could talk. He guessed that she was scared about something other than being lectured. He gave Ashley a heads up on Ronan trying to get in contact with her. Just then the phone rang. She told him she was going to go see him, while he kept a eye out on if Abby returned or not. When she reached the police station, Ronan played her ‘confession’ for her. He wanted to know what if she called Nick in order for him to help her get rid of Diane’s body. When she refused to answer him, he pulled the bloody rock out of drawer, placing it in her hand. He wanted to know how many times she hit Diane over the head with the rock until she was dead.

Kevin lectured Billy for sneaking out to see Delia. He warned Billy that by doing it would only make things worse for Delia, especially if he’s trying not to be found out by anyone. When Billy agreed, Kevin started to wonder what he could possibly be up to. Billy didn’t hide his frustration at not being able to see his daughter. Kevin wanted to know what Victor had on Billy, but Billy kept quiet. Back at the hospital, Chloe read to Delia, who complained of a headache. The nurse comes in to take her vitals. She has a slight fever. While Delia is resting, Chloe calls Kevin, leaving him a message.

Jill was having a drink, when she pulled out the note that Genevieve wrote. Still miffed that Colin ran off with his ex, Jill set the note on fire and tossed into the ashtray. As for Colin, he was still locked in the wine cellar with Gloria. Colin slowly learned that Genevieve purposely set him up in order to keep him and Jill apart. A tipsy Gloria babbled about how everyone seemed to focus on Jill. Both questioned the other on who would be looking for them. When Colin went over to a section of the wine cellar, he unwittingly stumbled upon a hidden craps table that lowered down. They realize that there is another hidden area. The go inside, in hopes to see if they can find a way out. Unfortunately, they come up short.

Ronan continued his interrogation, asking Ashley was there to witness Diane’s last breath after taking her life. Ashley told him that she didn’t do anything to Diane. Ronan tossed in that he’s aware that she was angry that Diane was fooling around with Tucker. It’s then that Ashley tells the detective that their conversation is done. As she was heading out, Ronan brought up how Kyle must be wondering who would hurt is mother. He then jabs her with her thinking about her daughter and how hurt she could be. The minute she walks out, he calls to have a police detail tail her. Shortly after placing the tail on Ashley, Victor arrived and told Ronan to leave his family alone. Outside of Ronan’s office, Victor received the call to let him know that the blood work for Billy came in.

Tucker shows up at the Athletic Club and takes a seat across from Jill. Jill shares that Colin took off with Genevieve. Tucker offers a little sympathy. Jill mentions how Tucker not once tried to warn her about what she was getting into when she was set to marry Colin. She bemoans how Katherine will be all over her when she learns what has happened. Tucker doesn’t mince his dislike for Katherine, calling her a ‘busybody’. During their talk, Jill lets slip that Katherine has managed to give Devon a job in the music industry. Tucker can’t believe what he is hearing. Meanwhile, Devon walked into Gloworm and spotted Abby. The minute he approached her, she started in on how she felt about Tucker. Devon changes gears and shares his news about his job.

In Billy’s trailer, Victor arrived to tell Billy that he is a match to save Delia. He then instructs Kevin to head to the hospital to inform Chloe that he matched after all. As for Chloe, she gets a visit from Ronan. She admits that if she weren’t with him in his hotel room, she might have been able to be there for her daughter sooner. She also admits that if she hadn’t fought Billy for custody, he’d still be in town and be there to help his daughter.

Outside of the police station, Ashley hurriedly rips up the photos that were taken of her and Diane, tossing them into the dumpster. While Ashley was hiding incriminating photos against her, Tucker was at Gloworm approaching Devon, curious to know about his job from Katherine.

Billy was overjoyed that he was a match for his daughter, but a cold Victor told him that once she was fully in the clear, he was to leave town. He said both Victoria and Delia would be better off without him in town at all. Meanwhile, at the hospital, Kevin gave Chloe the news that he was a ‘match’ for Delia.

Ronan returned back to the police station and was being briefed on Ashley and her whereabouts. The police officer handed him a Zip-loc bag with the shredded photographs. Back at the apartment, Abby waited for Ashley, who wanted to know if she was there to apologize.

On the Next The Young and the Restless

  • Tucker blasts Abby for her actions
  • Billy has it out with Victor
  • Kevin gets ready to confess to Victoria


CBS

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Daytime Confidential reports that long-time “All My Children” casting director Judy Blye Wilson has decided to move on to CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” The report indicates that Wilson had hoped to remain on the soap she has spent twenty years casting but the production company that licensed “AMC,” Prospect Park, failed to reach out to her.

Since 1991, Wilson has acted as the casting director for “AMC.” Along with other high-level executives at the soap, that means she has had an influential hand in the hiring of cast members ranging from current A-listers Sarah Michelle Gellar and Josh Duhamel to rising prime-time television and movie stars Micheal B. Jordan, Eva la Rue, Shannon Kane, Kelli Giddish and Leven Rambin. She also played a hand in discovering most of “Y&R’s” current cast – including Billy Miller, Jeff Branson and Eden Riegel (“Y&R” also recently acquired Debbi Morgan who is not a Wilson find) – and that may be part of the reason the number one soap in the U.S.A. extended the award-winning casting director an offer.

Before joining “AMC,” Wilson acted as the casting director of “Ryan’s Hope” from 1981 to 1987 and held the same position at “One Life to Live” from 1988 to 1991. She won three consecutive Daytime Emmy’s for her casting on “AMC” extending from 2001 thru 2004. She has been awarded ten Artios Awards from the Casting Society of America for her casting work on “AMC” (1995, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008). She may add another Artios Award to her shelf this November.

JPI

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “The Young and the Restless” Episode Recap – Friday, September 16, 2011.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…

Lauren and Jill met up at Crimson Lights, where Jill complained at how she was once again duped by Colin. Lauren didn’t believe Jill had enough proof, but Jill insisted that if Genevieve wanted to have Colin, she could. She was done. Gloria and Jeffrey were there and stopped at their table. They said they were going down to the hospital to be tested. Jill, in the meantime, was a little taken-aback in Jeffrey openly flirted with her. Unfortunately for Jeffrey, she wasn’t interested.

Jack, Victoria and Chloe were in the hospital room with Delia. They were all talking about Billy together. Victoria excused herself to leave but promised to return. She headed home to have a home cooked meal with Sam. Jack, in the meantime, was still working on finding any leads on where Billy was. He received a phone call and learned that Billy could be in Myanmar. He stepped out of the hospital room, promising Chloe he’d keep her posted if he heard anything. He called Victoria to report the same news to her. After getting off of the phone, Jack ran into Jill, who came with Lauren. Jill wanted to know if Jack was aware that Genevieve took off with Colin on the business trip. Jack told her he wasn’t but it was none of his business. He told her that their concern should be that of Delia. She agreed, and she and Lauren went into the hospital room, where Lauren shared a home video of Fen and Kevin.

Kevin wanted to know why Billy wasn’t at the hospital to see his daughter. Victor, however, did all of the talking, telling Kevin that the two of them would be working together. He took Kevin’s phone from him, to prevent him from making any calls to alert anyone about Billy. He went on to tell Kevin that Billy would have some preliminary tests and if he matched, Kevin would be the faux donor. Kevin told both Victor and Billy that it wouldn’t work, since everyone knew that he didn’t match. Kevin wanted to know what was going on and why Billy was laying low. Victor explained that Billy got into serious trouble and couldn’t simply re-emerge to the family. Realizing that Delia needed to be saved, Kevin reluctantly agreed to help.

Victoria showed up for dinner and marveled over the smell of Sam’ chili. The two dined on chili and a game of Parcheesi. While they were playing, Sam received a phone call and had to take it, leaving Victoria by herself. Sitting there alone, her mind raced to thoughts of Billy and her playing games together. Once off of the phone, Sam and she went back to playing the board game. Victoria did a little victory dance after beating Sam in several matches. An amused Sam challenged her to playing some penny arcade games with him some time. Once again, her mind went back to Billy and the time they shared.

At the Athletic Club, Victor and Jack ran into one another. Jack told Victor about his possible lead, and Victor, said he would ‘look into it’. While he was away, Kevin wanted to know why Billy would turn to Victor for help, when he hated the man so much. Billy, however, wanted to know how Delia was. Kevin told him that Chloe was holding it together. He shared that gave Delia McGruff to her. Billy teared up when he learned that Delia was asking for her daddy. Victor showed back up with a nurse to draw Billy’s blood. He instructed Kevin to go back to the hospital and tell Chloe that the hospital called to have him re-tested. The minute the nurse and Victor were gone, Kevin departed to go back to the hospital. Billy, unable to contain being apart from Delia, also left, sneaking to the hospital to see his daughter.

Victoria decided to leave the house and head to Billy’s trailer. When she peered inside, she noticed it empty. Trying to turn the handle, she discovered it locked. As she stood there, Victor appeared, wondering why she was there. She too, was surprised to see her father there. She shared the news of Jack learning that Billy could be in Myanmar. Victor once again urged her daughter to accept the fact that her marriage to Billy was over. When she left, Victor unlocked the trailer, looking around. He wondered where Billy went off to.

Jack was with Kyle at Crimson Lights. He called Chloe to let her know that he found Billy. He shared with his son that he had to go out of town to bring Billy back home from Hong Kong. An eavesdropping Victor overheard and called someone to tell them that he was glad to see Jack heading out of Genoa City to China.
Kevin told Chloe that he had to be re-tested, which puzzled her. She shared the news that Jack was headed to China to get Billy. When they both headed back to Delia’s room, the little girl told them that she had a dream that Billy was there to visit her.

Jeffrey told Gloria that he had to leave for Las Vegas. He once again flirted with Jill, which annoyed Gloria. She soon received a call from the security company, telling her that she was put down as a person to contact if there was a problem with the security system at Genevieve’s house. Gloria glowed at the notion that Genevieve put her down as someone to keep an eye on things for her. When she arrived, she let herself in, making sure everything was in order. Meanwhile, Colin, who tripped the alarm system, prayed that someone would come. When Gloria came down to the wine cellar, she was surprised to see a drunken Colin sitting in there. Colin hollered for Gloria not to let the door close, but it was too late: Gloria locked herself, along with him, again, in the wine cellar.
