Christine was at Michael's questioning him about the bribery allegations. She told him she felt terrible about the whole thing, and that she knew she was put on the case as a test, of sorts. Michael told her he thought the case was without validity and that there was no evidence. Regardless, she told him she had to investigate it, and asked how much pressure he thought Peter Hudson could take. She went on to tell him if he had anything at all to tell her, now would be a good time. This infuriated Michael, who reminded her of their long relationship, and that the Newmans and Abbotts have been feuding for years. He went on to remind her how hard he worked to get his license back and that even if he came out smelling like a rose, he could still end up losing his license. Before leaving, Christine told him she hoped it wasn't his guilty conscience talking.

On the plane ride back home, Nicholas asked Victor if he could get him anything. He said he couldn't imagine what Victor was going through. Victor told him Albert was a poor excuse for a human being, even after the 50 years that had passed. Nicholas told him he couldn't believe was dying and still had no desire to make amends with him-Victor poured his heart out and it meant nothing to him. He commented he thought Victor probably regretted going, and that he was sorry for how things turned out. Victor said that Nikki would probably be disappointed at the way things turned out. He told Nicholas she had set up a meeting with his mother years before and that it had turned out much differently. He went on to say he learned a valuable lesson-that if you choose to be like Albert, love with never touch your life and you'll die alone. With all the money and power he acquired, it would be nothing without his family. Nicholas told him how sorry he was, and Victor told him how much he meant to him. He told Nicholas Nikki had such high hopes for the trip, and that he hoped they could promise her they would at least try to make amends. Before he could say anything else, the pilot interrupted, announcing their descent into Genoa City. Once the plane landed, the pilot came back and told them he had gotten a call that wanted them to wait right there. Victor tried to protest, but just as the pilot was about to insist, Christine walked in. She told Victor that unfortunately, she wasn't there as a friend. She was there on behalf on the DA's office, and it was about commercial bribery.

Phyllis was surprised to see Gina and Danny at the club. After a few negative jabs, Danny asked Gina to leave him and Phyllis alone. Phyllis asked him if he would tell her about her son. Danny reminded her he didn't like to share information about Daniel with her, because it only caused her more pain. She told him she knew, but could he answer a few questions anyway? He hesitated, but then relented. He gave her vague information, ending with how happy he was. She asked a string of questions about Daniel-what he liked to do, what his favorite foods were, if he asked about her. Danny stopped her abruptly, saying all of that would only cause her a lot of pain. She told him she had a good life, that she was married to Jack, they had a son and she was helping to raise him. She also told him they were working for competing companies, and that the stress of the situation made Jack feel Kyle was better off with Diane. Once again, she said, she was losing a child she adored. Danny told her he was surprised she was in another child's life, and she told him how much she had changed and how hard she worked at it. Danny told her he hoped things worked out, and she thanked him. She told him that although she had a good life, she still had an empty space and sometimes thought it would kill her. Danny looked sympathetic and told her he could see that she had changed. She got up to leave, thanked him, and told him that if Daniel asked about her, to tell him that she loved him. After she left, Danny looked defeated and sad.

Cassie went up to the Main House to talk with Nikki about Sharon's odd behavior at the restaurant. She told Nikki when she came back from the bathroom, that Sharon was freaked out and grabbed Cassie and swept her out immediately. She went on to say she was having trouble trusting her, what with all of the strange behavior and secrets. Nikki sympathized with her and told her she shouldn't have to put up with that kind of behavior. After Cassie left, Nikki paid a visit to Sharon. Coming over right after Sharon was thinking about the violent incident, Nikki noticed that Sharon was edgy. She told her Cassie had been talking to her about Sharon's irrational behavior and that she needed to get it together. The family had been through enough, and she wanted her drama to stop. Sharon got defensive and told Nikki she listened to her, and now she could leave. After Nikki left, Sharon looked worried.

Hank Weber came to the Winters's residence to talk with Neil about Lily's case. Neil told him about Lily's sexually transmitting disease and asked if it was enough evidence to prosecute Kevin. Hank told him if Kevin was a carrier, then they would have a good circumstantial case, but it wouldn't necessarily prove anything beyond a shadow of a doubt. When he implied Lily could've gotten the disease from someone else, Neil got upset. For the record, Hank said, he believed she did get it from him, but warned Neil that on trial, Lily would have to answer those types of embarrassing questions. Neil agreed to talk to Lily about it further and they both agreed they would talk after they got back from their honeymoon.

Lily, CC and Sierra were at Crimson Lights going over Sierra's paper on teen pregnancy. Lily confessed she wished she would have listened to them about Kevin, and CC just told her not to worry, he could never hurt them again. Up at the counter, Kevin walked in and ordered a latte from Cody. Cody told him Lily and CC were there, and that he should just leave. Kevin just replied that he didn't see them, and Cody reluctantly made him his drink. Sierra spotted him, and CC cooked up a plan to embarrass Kevin. The three girls all approached him and berated him loud enough for the entire coffee house to hear them. They taunted him, calling him names and taking loudly about the things he had done. Cody came over and broke it up, demanding Kevin get out and not come back.
