Cane got drunk and passed out on New Year's Eve. Abby attempted to reunite Kyle and Lola, but Kyle stormed out when Lola kissed Fen at midnight. Fen was later disappointed when he walked in on Kyle and Lola kissing and making up. Mia was thrilled when Rey bailed on work to spend New Year's Eve with her, but she insisted that he go to the scene when he learned that Victor had been found. Rey stopped the Newmans' flight from taking off and arrested Victor. Nikki derailed Christine's attempt to pin kidnapping charges on Victor by claiming she'd begged Victor to whisk her out of the country. Rey convinced Christine to charge Victor with J.T.'s murder. Abby verbally attacked Mariah for reporting Victor's arrest, and Mariah grappled with knowing that Victor was innocent. Victoria talked Nikki out of confessing. Reed told Victoria that he'd been driving the car that had hit Nikki, and Victoria confronted Cane about Charlie's involvement. Victoria and Cane's argument ended in a passionate kiss that they both immediately regretted, and they agreed to never discuss it again. Jill returned to town and advised Cane not to tell Lily about the kiss. Kerry reeled when she learned that Jill was yet another of Jack's exes. Victoria and Cane forced Reed and Charlie to tell Nikki the truth about the hit-and-run accident. Nikki accepted responsibility for the role her drinking had played in the incident and insisted that they not involve the police. Nikki checked herself out of the hospital and prepared to visit Victor.
