Nick reviewed the DNA test kit, but he hid it when he heard a knock at the door. He greeted Avery, who presented him with cranberry orange muffins and fresh coffee. He distractedly thanked her with a kiss, but she noted that his kiss was subpar, and she asked what was wrong. Nick informed her about the party Summer had thrown at the penthouse. Avery offered to postpone her meeting with Adam, but Nick urged her to go to work. Once alone, Nick pulled some hair from Summer's hairbrush and placed it in an envelope. He then swabbed his cheek.
Summer stopped by the Abbott house, and she hoped it was okay with Kyle that she picked up her things. He noticed a taxi waiting outside, and she explained that Nick had taken her car keys. Kyle commented that she'd gotten off easy, given how angry Nick had been. She called Kyle brave for standing up to Nick, and she asked if Kyle had meant what he'd said about them dating.
Kyle said that part of the reason for his statement had been to stand up to Nick, and Summer inquired about the other part. Kyle didn't want to jump into anything without thinking it through, and she referred to herself as a psycho stalker for sneaking into his bed, but he understood that she had just been trying to get his attention. Summer worried that she'd scared Kyle away, but he said that Nick had been better at doing so. She suggested that Kyle stop by her photo shoot, and he agreed to try to make it.
After Summer had gathered her belongings, she ran into Nick on her way out, and she testily asked if he planned to go off on Kyle again. Nick proposed that they talk over breakfast, but she said that she couldn't miss her photo shoot. He offered to join her there, but she didn't think that was a good idea, since Kyle might attend. She didn't want the men to fight, and Nick hoped that he wouldn't have reason to ever again.
Dylan tossed and turned as he slept in his warehouse home. He flashed back to being in Afghanistan, and he had tried to reach for his gun and had screamed Sullivan's name. Dylan awakened with a start, and Chelsea knocked on his door. She was glad to find him home, and she presented him with a toolkit labeled "#1 Dad" as a housewarming gift.
Chelsea apologized for waking Dylan up, but she marveled at the progress he'd made on his new home. He stated that he'd completed the layout, and she was standing where the nursery would be. Chelsea remarked that she felt at home, but she quickly clarified that she knew that she wasn't going to live there. He said that it wasn't much of a place to live, and most people thought the warehouse had been abandoned. She mentioned the flyers that had accumulated by the door, and one was for a spring fair and carnival. Dylan said that he was a sucker for such events, and he suggested that they go.
At the fair, Dylan won a stuffed bear, and Chelsea suggested that they name it Dusty McBearson Jr. They arrived at Madame Miranda's tent, and Chelsea grumbled that the fortune-teller was a con. Madame Miranda overheard and dared Chelsea to put her theory to the test. Dylan offered money for a reading, but Madame Miranda declared that she'd perform it free of charge for him. The psychic stated that he'd seen battle and that it still haunted him, but he needed to find peace.
Chelsea complained that anyone could have made such vague comments, and she started to leave. Madame Miranda noted that Chelsea was pregnant, and she advised Chelsea not to cut the father out, because he wanted to be involved. Madame Miranda requested ten dollars to say more, but Chelsea snapped that she wouldn't give her ten cents. Madame Miranda remarked that some people were afraid of the truth, and she exited. Dylan pointed out that it didn't take a psychic to see that Chelsea was pregnant, and Chelsea reiterated that the fortune-teller was a fraud.
Adam and Avery met at Crimson Lights, and he instructed her to put all her efforts toward taking Newman Enterprises private. He assumed that she had more time on her hands since her engagement was off, and he pointed out her bare ring finger. She wanted to stick to business, but he said that the last time they'd spoken, all she had wanted to talk about had been their exes. Adam inquired whether Avery still had feelings for Dylan, and she denied it, but Adam assured Avery that she could talk to him.
Adam questioned whether Avery was trying to get Dylan back. She warned Adam that he was seriously close to being out of line, and she swore that she wasn't hiding anything, but Adam found it symbolic that she wasn't wearing her ring. She thought that he was projecting his own situation onto her, because he was the one who had issues with Chelsea and Dylan having a baby together.
Chelsea and Dylan entered the coffeehouse, and Chelsea griped that she had no respect for bad con artists. She couldn't believe that Madame Miranda had talked about Dylan as if he hadn't been there. She added that a real psychic would have known that Dylan was the baby's father, but she fell silent when she ran into Adam. Adam inquired whether Dylan and Chelsea were practicing parenting with the stuffed bear, and Chelsea mentioned that Dylan had won the toy at the fair.
Avery noticed that Chelsea was starting to show, but Chelsea claimed that she was just testing clothes from her maternity line. Chelsea headed to the counter, and Adam joined her. He thought it was out of character for her to go to the fair, but she retorted that she'd be the judge of what she enjoyed. He told her to look in his eyes and tell him that she didn't regret leaving him, because he would have given her everything, and she'd be having his baby.
Dylan informed Avery that he was in process of converting the warehouse into a home, but he added that he and Chelsea weren't planning to live together. Avery reported that she and Nick had worked things out, and Dylan was happy for her. Chelsea and Adam's argument escalated, and Dylan intervened. Chelsea said that she'd had a great day, and she rushed off to the photo shoot. An upset Adam declared that his meeting with Avery was over, and he walked off. Avery noted that Dylan had been very protective of Chelsea, and she realized that Chelsea was more to Dylan than just the mother of his child.
Nick looked at the envelope with the completed test kit, but he concealed it when Avery returned. She called Adam "as charming as gingivitis," though she conceded that Adam had been bearable until Chelsea and Dylan had showed up. Nick noted that Dylan and Chelsea had been spending a lot of time together, and Avery opined that she thought Dylan was falling for Chelsea.
Cane and Lily had breakfast at Crimson Lights, and they amorously discussed the romantic evening they'd shared the night before. He wondered if she had time for another round of lovemaking before work, but she had to leave for the photo shoot, and she hoped that it turned out to be worth all the hard work she'd put into it. Cane mentioned that he had a meeting with Katherine, and he and Lily agreed to meet in a few hours.
Tyler met Leslie at the Athletic Club, but he couldn't stay, because he wanted to get to the office to catch Lily before the photo shoot. Leslie surmised that Tyler hadn't taken Leslie's advice, but Tyler said that he'd confronted his feelings for Lily, and he had to meet Lily in person to tell her about a decision he'd made. He refused to let Leslie talk him out of it.
Tyler said that he'd considered Leslie's comment that Lily resembled Mariah, and he'd realized that Leslie had been right. Leslie pondered whether Tyler was holding on to Lily because Lily wasn't available, so Tyler wouldn't get burned again. Tyler said to trust him, but Leslie advised him not to make any life-changing moves so soon after Gus's death. Tyler declared that he wasn't fighting for Lily anymore. Meanwhile, someone took photos of Leslie.
Cane ran into Jill at the Athletic Club and asked if she'd seen Katherine. Jill questioned whether Cane and Katherine had been scheming behind her back, but Cane simply stated that he wanted to run some ideas by Katherine before he filled Jill in. Jill revealed that she had set up the meeting, but she had told Cane's assistant that it was with Katherine. Cane believed that Jill was up to something, and he reminded her that he intended to run the company his way.
Jill swore that she wanted Cane to succeed and the company to thrive, but she pointed out that she'd easily managed to steal an hour of his time with one call. She complained that his office was always in total chaos, and she recommended that he fire his assistant. Jill worried that Cane was too nice, and she believed that he needed to show a mean streak to be an effective CEO. Jill pointed out that Victor was one of the most unpleasant people on the planet and that was what made Victor successful.
Jill was afraid that Cane would let people walk all over him, and she insisted that she was lecturing him out of love, because he had to get tough to succeed. He promised to work on it, and she asked why he'd wanted to talk with Katherine. He announced his plans to expand Chancellor Industries, and Jill objected. He pounded his fist on the table and half-jokingly told her to "go to hell." He disclosed that he wanted to pursue biotech research, and he requested that she lead the project.
Lily prepared for the photo shoot at the design studio, and Tyler asked if she was ready for the big day. She said that she was putting on the finishing touches, and he was confident that she'd rock it. She corrected that they were in it together, but he stammered that it was time for him to walk away. Lily huffed that it was no time for games, but Tyler maintained that he was serious about resigning from Jabot. She refused to allow him to quit.
Tyler said that Lily didn't have a say, because it was his life. She argued that his resignation would impact her and her career, and she wouldn't let him trash it. He insisted that she'd be fine without him, and she assumed that he needed to take more time off to mourn Gus. She cautioned that running away wasn't the answer, and she scolded him for not following through with anything in his life.
Summer and Mason entered the studio with Oliver Jones, a photographer from Forrester Creations. Summer complimented Oliver's work, and Oliver and Tyler warmly greeted one another as old friends. Oliver went to set up, and Lily instructed Summer and Mason to get ready. Lily asked Tyler to stick around for the shoot, because she felt that he owed her at least that much.
Oliver led Summer and Mason through the photo shoot, and Summer struggled to look like she was having fun, but she finally loosened up when Kyle arrived. Kyle smiled as he looked on, and Summer and Mason hugged after the shoot concluded. Lily noted that Tyler had gotten into it, and he agreed that there was nothing like watching his hard work pay off. Lily encouraged Tyler to stick around to get the recognition he deserved, and he conceded that she was persuasive. Lily applauded everyone's efforts, but when she turned around, Tyler was gone.
Lily tracked down Tyler at the Athletic Club, and she suggested that they reach a compromise. He balked, and she asked if he'd like more vacation time or an assistant. He blurted that work wasn't the problem -- she was. Tyler explained that he'd tried to pull back and shut off his feelings, but he'd put her in a terrible position. Lily claimed that she could handle it, because part of the job was to remain professional and leave her feelings at the door.
Tyler wondered if Lily had feelings for him, and she became flustered. She contended that anything personal had to be kept separate from business, and she had too much invested in the launch to replace Tyler in the middle of it. Lily argued that quitting was selfish, but Tyler said that he was doing it for her. She lectured that Jabot employees were counting on him to make the campaign a success, but he said that her world was no place for an amateur like him.
Over the phone, Cane told someone that it was unacceptable if they couldn't deliver. He noticed Tyler and Lily in a heated discussion, and Jill asked what was going on. Cane guessed that Tyler and Lily were having some creative differences. Tyler took off, and Cane approached Lily, who informed him that Tyler had quit. Lily ranted that Tyler was acting unprofessional, but Cane pointed out that maybe Tyler wasn't doing his best work under the circumstances, so it could be for the best.
Tyler returned to the Athletic Club, and Leslie assured him that he'd done the right thing. She said that one-sided feelings only opened him up to pain, but he revealed that he'd gotten the impression that the feelings weren't just one way. Meanwhile, someone continued to snap photos of them.
Chelsea looked over the photos from the shoot and was impressed. Mason left for the gym, and Summer offered to meet him there to work out together. Chelsea went to send the photos to Chloe, and Kyle asked Summer to dinner. She inquired whether it was a date, and he responded that it was just dinner, but she happily accepted.
Dylan entered the studio, and Chelsea assured him that she was doing fine. He pretended that he was there to check on Dusty Jr., and he said that he wanted it to be their baby's first toy. Dylan hoped that his kid had a better gift for naming stuffed animals than he did, but Chelsea wanted their child to have a lot of Dylan's qualities. Dylan mentioned that he'd had a great time with her, even if Adam had ruined the afternoon. Chelsea declared that Adam couldn't hurt her anymore, because Adam was completely out of her life.
Adam tried to do some work at the penthouse, but he was distracted by thoughts of Chelsea. He flashed back to Chelsea stopping by in the middle of the storm to tell him something, but she'd clammed up when she'd spied Sharon there. Adam recalled Avery's statement that Chelsea was starting to show, and he pulled out a datebook. He began to count back the weeks.
