Brad goes to see Sharon to offer his support.
Nikki doesn't think it was wise of Victor to offer to help Nick at work. Victor says he can't help it, Nick is his son. Nick shows up and says that he has decided to ask for his father's help.
When Nick returns home to tell Sharon he has asked for his father's help, Sharon tries to talk to Nick about the guilt that they must both be feeling. Nick doesn't understand, he doesn't feel guilty. Sharon tells him that when Cassie wanted to go out she disapproved but Nick said it was okay. Nick wonders if Sharon is blaming him for Cassie's death.
Sharon wishes she could go back and not allow Cassie to go to the party. Nick states that Cassie's death was not their fault—that Daniel is the one to blame. Christine reveals to Phyllis that Weber and Glenn suspect that Daniel has run off. She states that if Daniel doesn't show up in the courtroom tomorrow morning, he will be considered a fugitive, which is the worst thing that can happen for him. Phyllis suggests that she go and speak to the judge tomorrow, but Christine tells her to stay far away from the courthouse. Nick knocks on the door to see Christine, but freezes when he sees Phyllis there. He can't believe Christine is representing a ‘murderer,' and demands to know why Phyllis was at the funeral. Kevin comes on to Gitta, telling her that he thinks she's the one. Gitta thinks that if she sleeps with Kevin now, he may not want to get married as fast so she pulls away. He whispers in her ear and she changes her mind, leading him up to the bedroom. Later Gloria returns home and thinks the house is empty. Kevin comes down the stairs in his boxers and he sees Gloria, telling her that everything is fine, but to not let anyone come upstairs. He runs back upstairs and John enters. Kevin enters Gitta's room, made-up to look like a vampire. Gloria asks to prepare him some dinner and he agrees, but first wants to go upstairs and ask Gitta about tomorrow's schedule. She persuades him not too, and they eat. After their meal John is about to go check on her when they hear a bloodcurdling scream. Malcolm is surprised when Brad reveals he isn't working at Jabot anymore. Brad fills Malcolm in on Jill's promotion to CEO, and says that eventually Jack and Kay will realize their mistake and give him the job. Later Sharon enters and has a vision of Cassie at the bar, sipping a smoothie. She is rattled and Brad sees her start to cry. Jill has an idea on how to bring Jabot up to speed and seeks out Malcolm. She butters him up, saying he was the best photographer that Jabot has ever had, and wants him to come back to work for her. Malcolm states that he is done with that life. Jill leaves, not entirely giving up on him yet.
While John and Gloria were talking downstairs, they were shocked to hear a bloodcurdling scream. Gitta ran down the stairs and gave John her notice, saying she had to leave instantly. She would send for her things later. John protested, wondering what had frightened Gitta so much. She warned him that there was something wrong with his house. It turned people into something they weren't---something evil. After she left, Gloria spotted Kevin standing on the stairs. She laughed off Gitta's fears about ghosts and promised John that she could help him with his physical therapy. John went upstairs to bed, and Kevin sneaked in to gloat with his mother about his successful efforts to get rid of Gitta. At first, he didn't want to tell her how he'd done it, but when Gloria persisted with her questions, Kevin showed her his vampire fangs. Gloria burst out laughing at him.
Paul ran into Brad at the steam room at the athletic club. They talked about Brad's idle time, but Brad said after what had happened to Cassie, he just wanted to focus on his daughters. Paul admitted to Brad that he and Ashley had been seeing each other for a couple of months. Brad was glad that if Ashley had decided to date again, it was with someone like Paul. He warned Paul that Ashley could be a little fragile. Paul agreed. He told Brad he had some competition, too---a man who put off a weird vibe and didn't seem like Ashley's type. Brad was skeptical, too, when he found out that Ashley had uncharacteristically gone fishing with the mystery man.
At the Carlton house, Ashley was enjoying some time with Abby. Abby hoped that her mother's promise of more time together included her father, but Ashley said it would be just the two of them. Abby questioned Ashley about why Cassie had died, and Ashley told her that Cassie hadn't been wearing her seatbelt. When Abby realized that Victor was Cassie's grandfather, she said he must be sad. She asked Ashley to tell him that she was thinking about him. Just as Ashley was suggesting that Abby could tell Victor herself, Brad came in. Abby went to bed, and Brad and Ashley had a friendly chat. They agreed that Abby wanted them to get back together, and Brad told Ash that he knew she was seeing Paul. He was okay with that; as long as she didn't date anyone who would cause harm to their daughter, he supported Ashley in going on with her life.
Katherine went to Jabot to apologize to Jill for not being more supportive earlier. She had told Jill what the problems were, now she was ready to offer her a solution. She had some photographs by a woman that Jill could hire to revitalize Jabot's print ads. Jill explained that she already had someone in mind: Malcolm Winters. At first Katherine was dubious about Jill's ability to persuade Malcolm to come back to work, but she finally gave Jill her approval to do whatever it took to hire him. The two women seemed happy with their newfound relationship as allies to each other. Katherine admired Jill's new self-confidence, and Jill told Katherine that she owed it to her.
Malcolm had a talk with Lily about Daniel's predicament. As much as she cared about him, she would be throwing her life away if she did anything drastic. Lily finally seemed to accept what he was saying. Although she didn't promise that she wouldn't run away with Daniel, she seemed more realistic than she had been. After Lily left the coffee house, Malcolm went to see Jill. He admitted that he was tempted by her offer and wanted to come back to Jabot. But he had one condition. He wanted Lily to be the new Glo by Jabot model. Jill wondered about Lily's lack of experience, and she also questioned whether Dru and Neil would let their daughter work for the competition. Malcolm said Dru wouldn't be a problem, and Jill should just trust his instincts when it came to Lily's ability.
Nick continued to question Christine and Phyllis about Daniel's whereabouts. There were some answers he wanted from Daniel. He was sure Cassie would never normally have gotten in a car with a drunk driver, so Nick felt that Daniel had exerted influence over Cassie and manipulated her. Phyllis argued that Daniel had barely known Cassie. Nor did he have any answers about that night, since he couldn't remember what had happened. As Nick lashed out at Christine for representing his daughter's killer, and at Phyllis for having no idea what it was like to bury a child, Phyllis broke down. She admitted that she didn't know where Daniel was. And even though she thought he would come back and face prosecution, she didn't blame him for running and wanting to avoid Nick. She told Nick that all the anger he was directing at Daniel wouldn't bring Cassie back. Nick agreed, but said that one way or another, he was going to make sure Daniel paid for what he'd done to Cassie.
Lily went to the hiding place to see Daniel, who was starting to panic. He knew that his time had run out. There was nothing anyone could do to stop him from going to jail, so he had no choice but to get as far away from Genoa City as possible. He told Lily that she couldn't go with him or help him any further. He wasn't going to destroy her life, too. Lily insisted that she would stand by him no matter what, but Daniel wouldn't back down. He finally agreed to let Lily get him out of town the next morning, but that was the last time she could help him.

Malcolm tries to call Lily on her cell. He tells her to get back right away.

Christine walked into her office talking to Danny on her cell phone about Daniel's situation. When she realized that Nick was there, she cut her call short. Nick said that he'd heard Daniel hadn't shown up for his hearing. Once again, he demanded to know where Daniel was. Christine said she didn't know; all she knew was that they'd traced a cell phone call Lily made to Daniel and knew he was still in the area. She warned Nick not to seek vigilante justice; it wouldn't bring Cassie back. She also suggested that Nick's place was with his family, by Sharon's side. Nick said that Sharon, like him, wanted justice and answers about why Cassie had died defending Daniel. Christine said she wanted those answers, too.
Later, Nick went home, barely able to force himself to go inside. Once he did, he read a sympathy card on some flowers, then he finally exploded, hurling vases of flowers at the wall and knocking them off of tables. When he realized that he'd broken the glass on Cassie's photograph, he picked it up and sat down, hugging it as he cried.
As Mac and J.T. prepared to take their romance into the bedroom after Mac assured J.T. that's what she wanted, they were interrupted by Paul pounding on the door. He apologized for barging in and told J.T. that Daniel hadn't shown up for his hearing. The police had a warrant out for his arrest, and Paul wanted J.T. to question some of Daniel's and Lily's friends. He was pretty sure that Lily had been helping Daniel stay in hiding because of the tracked cell phone call. J.T. and Mac left to see what they could find out.
At Crimson Lights, Phyllis continued to pressure Malcolm for answers. He admitted that he was relatively sure Lily knew where Daniel was, although Malcolm did not. Detective Weber had come to question Lily, and she'd sneaked out. Malcolm had reached her on her cell phone and told her to be back at the coffee house in fifteen minutes. Phyllis knew it had been longer than that and didn't have any faith that Lily wasn't going to help Daniel run.
At their hiding place, Lily refused to tell Daniel that she'd drop him off an hour out of town. She said that he couldn't possibly get away without help. He had no car and no money, plus his picture would be everywhere. Daniel stopped arguing, and Lily called Malcolm. Phyllis took the phone from Malcolm and ordered Lily to put Daniel on the line. Daniel apologized for causing his mother so much trouble and said he was okay. Phyllis broke down, telling him that as much as she didn't want him to go to jail, she couldn't bear the idea of losing him and not seeing him. She begged him to come back, vowing to stay by his side no matter what. Before Daniel could answer, they lost their phone signal. Daniel told Lily he knew what he had to do. He'd ruined enough lives. He needed to turn himself in. Lily disagreed, saying that if he did that, they'd never see each other again. She couldn't bear that.
While Phyllis tried to figure out what Daniel would do, Malcolm mentioned how desperate Cassie had been to tell Daniel something. That was why she'd left the hospital and ended up collapsing in the coffee shop. Phyllis wondered if Cassie had been trying to tell Daniel something that would help him. Later, while Phyllis was on the patio, J.T. and Mac came in and told Malcolm how much trouble they were having getting any information on Daniel. Malcolm told them when he thought Lily and Daniel had started seeing each other---after Neil's accident---and then told them that Phyllis and Drucilla had forbidden the relationship.
Phyllis walked up and agreed, saying she'd done the right thing. If it hadn't been for Lily, Daniel wouldn't be in this predicament. While Malcolm defended Lily, J.T. began to contemplate Malcolm's words about a couple forbidden to see each other, obviously remembering Colleen. He grabbed Mac's arm and said they had to leave; he was sure he knew where Daniel was hiding. He asked Malcolm to call Lily and try to get her to stay put without tipping her off that anyone knew where she was.
When J.T. and Mac left, Phyllis tried to follow them, but Malcolm held her back, saying she needed to stay out of it. He then called Lily and apologized for being so rough on her. He said that he wanted to do something to help her and Daniel. Not help them run, but at least buy them some time. Lily thanked him and hung up. Then she talked Daniel into leaving in her car, saying that Malcolm wouldn't have changed his mind that quickly. As they drove away from the Abbott estate, they met J.T. and Mac, who didn't realize Daniel and Lily were getting away. As they were celebrating their escape, they heard sirens behind their car. While Lily made Daniel hide under blankets in the back seat, J.T. and Mac arrived at the Abbott playhouse to find it empty.
Gina was embarrassed to have to tell Tom at the athletic club restaurant that his card had been declined. Before Tom could react, Michael intervened and told Gina he'd take care of Tom's bill. Tom refused to let him, giving Gina cash with a big tip. Michael sat down with Tom, asking what it would take to get him out of town. Tom insisted that he had every right to stay in Genoa City. He had some financial dealings there as well as a woman he was interested in. Tom suggested that Michael's and Lauren's wedding would be a great opportunity for a family reunion. Michael warned Tom to stay away from Kevin and Gloria, and Tom said he wished Gloria only the best with her new husband. In turn, he warned Michael to stay out of his way. Later, after Michael was gone, Tom spoke to someone on the phone about how difficult Michael was making things. It wasn't clear who he was talking to or what they were scheming about.
Michael got back to his office to find Paul talking to Christine. They updated him on Daniel's situation, letting him know Daniel was still in the area. When Christine talked about Daniel vanishing, Michael thought about Tom Fisher and said there was someone that he wished he could make vanish.
At the Abbott house, Ashley was shocked to hear that Gitta had abruptly resigned. She asked Gloria how she'd managed it. John defended Gloria, saying that Gitta had thought the house was haunted. As Ashley and Gloria bickered, John felt a pain in his hip. Gloria helped him work it out using techniques she'd picked up from watching Gitta. Sickened by the way Gloria was worming herself back into John's good graces, Ashley went into the kitchen. John was grateful for Gloria's loving touch and asked her to dinner. When he went upstairs to change, Ashley walked back into the room and told Gloria that she knew what she was up to. Gloria called Ashley an Ice Queen and suggested she needed to get a life of her own instead of trying to ruin John's. But apparently, no one wanted to date anyone as cold as she was. While they were talking, Ashley got a call on her cell phone from Tom. She agreed to meet him at the athletic club for dinner. After she hung up, Gloria questioned her about her date, but Ashley breezed out the door. When John came downstairs and asked Gloria where she wanted to have dinner, Gloria said she wanted to go to the athletic club restaurant.
