At the hospital, Neil admired his fussy infant and marveled that the child was his son. Sofia asked if Neil had heard from Malcolm. Neil said he hadn't and complained that Malcolm's habit of running away was getting old. Sofia defended Malcolm and said her husband needed time to adjust to being an uncle instead of a father. Malcolm arrived seconds before a nurse entered. The nurse, holding the baby's birth certificate, asked which man was Moses' father. Malcolm turned and walked out without uttering a word.
The nurse regretted her mistake after Sofia and Neil explained the problematic situation concerning Moses' paternity. Sofia urged Neil to sign his name to the baby's birth certificate. After Neil signed the document, Sofia added her signature and proudly acknowledged her role as Moses' mother. After the nurse left, Sofia asked Neil to speak with Malcolm before the situation worsened.
Malcolm sought solace from Phyllis at Restless Style's headquarters. Malcolm cried that he felt as if he'd lost a son, a wife, and a brother all at the same time. Phyllis disagreed when Malcolm claimed that perhaps the universe was setting him straight for having fathered a daughter with Dru that Neil had raised as his own. Phyllis urged Malcolm stay with Sofia and raise Moses. Phyllis added that Malcolm had pledged his undying love for Sofia. Malcolm replied, "That doesn't mean that I don't hate her a little bit for this."
Phyllis mentioned her situation with Lucy. Phyllis said that although she hadn't created the baby, she was invested in the child as much as if she had. Phyllis told Malcolm that loving Moses was more important than holding a grudge against Sofia and Neil. Phyllis suggested that Neil might not even want to raise the child. Malcolm, dejected, said that Neil and Sofia shared a child together and had a special bond. Phyllis replied that many parents who had kids together weren't bonded as a couple. Malcolm sighed. Phyllis insisted that all Moses cared about was having someone love him. Malcolm wasn't cheered by Phyllis' words as he left.
Neil stopped by Gloworm and asked Victor if he'd seen Malcolm. Neil announced that he was the father of Sofia's baby boy. Neil said that the baby was named Moses in honor of Sofia's father. Victor proclaimed the child lucky to have Neil as a father. Neil reminded Victor that Malcolm was married to the infant's mother. Neil admitted that he didn't consider what had happened to be a mistake, but he said he wasn't sure how to handle his brother. Victor advised Neil to spend all the time he could with his son.
Later, Neil told Sofia that he wanted to be more than an absentee father. Sofia explained that she hoped Malcolm might come around because they still loved each other. Sofia insisted that she and Malcolm could make their awkward situation work for Moses' sake. Neil, angry, said that Malcolm should be more concerned about his family than his ego. Sofia reminded Neil how he'd been hurt after he learned the truth about Lily. Sofia added, "You and Lily had years together, but Malcolm missed out on all of that. Now he'll miss out on Moses, too."
Malcolm returned and asked to speak to Sofia alone. Neil stepped out. Malcolm sighed and said that he'd waited months to know who'd fathered Moses. Since he knew, Malcolm added, he wanted a divorce. Sofia begged Malcolm to let their love give their relationship hope for the future. Malcolm handed Sofia legal documents and explained that he intended to fly to Guam to obtain a divorce within a week, so he could be done with her.
Sofia begged Malcolm not to slam the door in her face. She promised to do whatever was necessary in order to make their marriage work. Malcolm explained that he'd always played the part of Uncle Malcolm to Lily, and he didn't plan to do the same with Moses. Sofia insisted that the baby would adore him. Malcolm lifted Sofia's chin and looked her straight in the eye when he asked if she'd adore him as much as she had Neil when she'd slept with him. Sofia grew angry and told Malcolm that she'd already begged him to forgive her. She told Malcolm that it was typical of him to run away.
Sofia, defiant, signed the divorce papers and thrust them into Malcolm's chest. Neil returned and asked what was going on. Sofia told Neil to let Malcolm leave because he had a flight to catch. Malcolm, angry and hurt, glared at Neil before he stormed out. Sofia sobbed pitifully. Neil told Sofia that Malcolm's behavior was inexcusable.
Neil begged Sofia to move in with him. Sofia told Neil that he'd be disrupting his life and hers. Neil, cradling Moses, replied, "This little boy has already done that for us, and I'm not about to let you two go off in the world without me." Sofia agreed to move in with Neil because Moses deserved to have his father in his life.
At Gloworm, Phyllis stopped at Victor's table and asked if his day included hovering over Sharon or writing another check to Avery Clark. Victor replied, "Your sister's an excellent attorney." Phyllis took a seat and accused Victor of hiring Avery because she was Phyllis' sister. Phyllis added that Victor had to have known because he routinely conducted extensive background checks. Phyllis cried, "I don't want my sister here. Why are you doing this to me?" Victor claimed that he wasn't doing anything to Phyllis, and he warned her not to use Restless Style to undermine Sharon's trial. Near tears, Phyllis maintained that she only cared about writing and publishing good stories.
In the jail's visitation room, Nick sat with Sharon, who was dressed and ready for her trial to begin. Sharon insisted that she was prepared and said she hoped to be reunited with Faith and Noah. Sharon asked Nick if Faith could accompany him to the trial. Nick reminded Sharon that their daughter had suffered emotional trauma after attending Sharon's recent hearing. Sharon admitted that she was worried about her fate and expressed regret for not accepting the plea deal.
Sharon, growing increasingly anxious, told Nick that an anticipated acquittal wasn't a sure thing. Sharon again begged Nick to let Faith accompany him. Sharon said she needed to see her child's face in the courtroom. After the recent hearing, Nick explained, Faith couldn't understand why she wasn't allowed to run into her mother's arms. Afterward, Nick added, Faith cried often and had trouble sleeping. Gently, Nick said, "I'm sorry, but Faith will not be in court today." Nick promised to be present in the courtroom. Tears streamed down Sharon's cheeks.
At Adam's suite at the Genoa City Athletic Club, Avery pleaded with Adam to help save Sharon. Adam sarcastically replied, "Well, the wizard never gave me a heart, so you can give up trying to touch it." Avery explained that the prosecution had a solid case against Sharon, so she needed an even stronger defense. Avery reminded Adam that he'd once claimed to have evidence that could clear Sharon. Adam snarled and told Avery she wasn't living up to her hyped-up reputation if she was seeking help from him for Sharon.
Avery reminded Adam that Sharon had ended her fling with Sam after she returned to Genoa City and had been willing and eager to marry Adam. Avery asked Adam if his maintaining his pride was worth having Sharon sentenced to decades in prison. Adam quipped that Avery was a tough girl running scared when she admitted that Sharon's best option hinged on a declaration of a mistrial. Avery pointed her finger in Adam's face and said that if Adam were half human, he'd be scared, too. Adam maintained his unsympathetic expression.
After Avery's visit, Adam fell asleep on the sofa in his suite. He dreamed that he struggled to open a dungeon-like door. Behind the door, Adam saw Sharon strapped into an electric chair. Sharon look horrified. A flash of electricity roused Adam from his nightmare. Dripping with sweat, Adam sat upright, breathing heavily as he tried to regain his composure.
Avery stopped by Restless Style's headquarters. Phyllis wasn't pleased to see her sister, who announced that she was looking for Nick. Phyllis sarcastically replied, "Uh, of course you were." Avery commented that Phyllis was acting territorial regarding Nick. In an unfriendly tone, Phyllis proclaimed Avery to be a hero to the downtrodden.
Avery fumbled with her purse in search of paper and a pen, so she could leave a note for Nick. A video game cartridge fell out of Avery's bag, and Phyllis picked it up. Phyllis asked Avery if she still played video games. Avery told Phyllis that Nick had given her the video game cartridge. Avery offered to let Phyllis borrow the game.
Nick arrived, and Avery instructed him to have Faith present in the courtroom. Nick explained that he'd already told Sharon that Faith wouldn't be in court. Forcing a smile, Avery told Nick that they would discuss the matter at the courthouse. Nick replied, "We can do that. My answer will be the same."
Avery shook her head and said, "I don't think so!" After Avery left, Phyllis asked Nick what was going on between him and Avery. Nick claimed that nothing was going on. Phyllis held up the video game and asked Nick if he'd given it to Avery. Grinning, Nick said he had because Avery had mentioned that she enjoyed playing video games.
Phyllis, annoyed, reminded Nick that they played video games together as a semblance of foreplay. Nick accused Phyllis of being jealous. Phyllis waved her hand before her face and insisted she was not jealous. Phyllis claimed she was being preemptive, and she accused Nick of being condescending. Nick reminded Phyllis that she and Avery had played video games together before he ever happened along as a substitute for Avery. Phyllis warned that Avery and Nick would be an infuriating problem if they became close. Nick replied, "There's nothing between Avery and me to go anywhere, but you two have some unfinished business."
After Nick left, Phyllis fumed. Malcolm retuned and told Phyllis that he'd decided to divorce Sofia. Malcolm admitted that Sofia would have tried to make their relationship work because she was loyal. Malcolm claimed that he'd pushed for the divorce to make Sofia hate him for leaving. Malcolm said he'd given Sofia and Neil an opportunity to become a family and do the right thing for Moses.
Malcolm promised to stay in touch with Phyllis through email. Phyllis told Malcolm that she was his only close friend. Phyllis suggested that perhaps Neil and Sofia wouldn't become the perfect couple. Malcolm assured Phyllis that they would. Phyllis embraced her friend before he left.
Victor visited Sharon at the jail. Sharon told Victor that she hoped the jury would find her innocent, so she could soon return home to her family. Beaming, Sharon said she couldn't wait to have lunch with Noah and play with Faith at the park. Victor said there was no reason she couldn't see Faith in the courtroom. Sharon explained that she and Nick had decided it wasn't the best choice for Faith because the child couldn't understand why she wasn't allowed to touch her mother. Victor said that both Sharon and Faith needed proper support, so he would make certain that Faith was present.
Sharon told Victor that Nick had been a wonderful father, so she trusted his judgment. Victor said that Faith's family would help ease the child through the difficult situation. Sharon insisted that for one day, she would be fine without her child in the courtroom because she'd soon be reunited with her family every second of every day. Sharon pleaded with Victor to leave the situation alone. Victor patted Sharon's hand and advised her to keep her spirits up and not worry.
After Victor left, a guard opened the door to the jail's visitation room. Sharon smoothed her dress and told the guard that she was prepared to be transferred to the courthouse. The guard stood aside, and Adam walked in. Sharon was shocked. Adam glared at her. Sharon, irate, asked, "What are you doing here?"
In the courtroom before the trial began, Avery told Nick that an innocent person should not be robbed of her freedom. Nick said that he and Sharon had decided that Faith should not be present. Avery insisted that the Faith should not be kept away from her mother. Nick maintained that there wasn't a doubt in his mind that he'd made the right decision.
Avery sighed dejectedly and asked Nick if both of the Newman brothers' intentions were to leave their ex-wife hanging when she needed them the most. Nick explained that Adam was a sociopath, who was suppressing evidence. Nick said he was a father trying to protect his daughter.
Avery admitted that her comment was out of line. Avery told Nick that Faith could have a key impact on Sharon's state of mind, and she begged Nick to reconsider. Victor entered. He handed Nick a court order. As Nick read the document, Victor said, "You will bring Faith to see her mother. I've taken the decision out of your hands." Nick said nothing, but he seethed with anger. Avery grinned contentedly.

In the jail, Sharon was shocked when Adam went to see her before court. Adam wanted to know if Sharon had ever considered returning to him while she was on the run in New Mexico. Adam wanted to hear from Sharon the reasons she had decided to let the world believe that she was dead. Sharon said that she'd been filled with remorse over her decision and that she had loved Adam, but she had known that he'd wind up in prison if she returned, since he'd arranged her escape. Sharon told Adam that Sam had never replaced Adam in her heart.
Sharon admitted that she had seen Adam's true colors when he humiliated her in front of the preacher on the day they were supposed to get married. Sharon said that her heart had been ripped to shreds that day. Adam still wanted some questions answered and explained that he felt bad about how the trial had been progressing for Sharon.

Avery asked Ricky to arrange for a photographer to be in court to get a picture of Sharon and Faith together. Ricky said hello to his sister, Heather. Later, Ricky reported to Avery that the photographer had arrived and was ready to shoot Sharon with Faith. Sharon arrived in the courtroom and told Avery that Adam had been to see her. Sharon noted that Adam had been eerily calm, and Sharon feared he was up to something. On the phone, Heather assured D.A. Walsh that she was prepared for Sharon's trial and there would be no slip-ups. Adam appeared in the hallway and wished Heather luck in court.
Sharon was surprised when she saw Adam enter the courtroom. Victor went to Adam and asked why he was there. Adam refused to answer. Sharon was overjoyed when Nick appeared with Faith. Sharon and Avery took their seats behind the defense table just as the judge declared court in session. Heather interviewed a witness who claimed to have seen Sharon fighting with Skye at Gloworm. Avery ripped up the witness's testimony by having her admit that she'd never heard Skye and Sharon's talk.
During a recess. Sharon tried to touch Faith, but the guard exclaimed that physical contact was not allowed. The photographer got a picture of Faith and Sharon being dragged apart. Nick was upset and wanted to go after the photographer, but Avery explained that the photographer had been doing what Avery wanted. Nick hated that Avery had used Faith, but Avery was determined to sway public opinion in Sharon's favor, and the picture would help.
The judge ended court early. Avery talked about the need for the photograph to Nick, Victor, and Sharon. Sharon and Victor said that if Avery felt the picture was necessary, than it was all right. Sam pointed out that Faith had been very happy to see Sharon. Adam told Heather that she'd done well in court.
Adam watched from the doorway as Sharon said goodbye to Faith. Nick told Avery that he was displeased with her strategy. Adam offered to buy Heather a drink. Heather was curious about what Adam was up to and agreed to have a drink with him. Adam and Heather left the courtroom.

Michael told Billy about Victoria getting divorce papers prepared. Billy knew about the papers, but believed that since Vicki hadn't signed them, Billy still had a chance to win her back. Michael told Billy that Victoria had called him for a new set of divorce papers because she'd misplaced the originals.
Michael wondered if Billy was willing to go up against Victor, considering what Billy had done in Myanmar.

At the house, Victoria wondered if Keely could have eaten the divorce papers. Sam was surprised that Victoria had taken the step of getting divorce papers prepared.

Billy sneaked in to see Kevin. Billy told Kevin that he'd decided to duck out of the hospital and ditch Michael, but first Billy wanted to see Delia. Kevin would not help Billy unless Billy was prepared to tell the truth about being the bone marrow donor. When Victoria knocked on the door, Kevin forced Billy to hide in the bathroom. Victoria entered and thanked Kevin for being Delia's donor. Billy listened as Victoria said she'd never forgive Billy for pulling a disappearing act.

Chloe was impressed with Kevin's kiss. Kevin said that Chloe had been doing a great job for Delia, and he appreciated Chloe. Kevin then feigned pain and asked Chloe to retrieve his pain medication; Kevin used it as a diversion so he could go into Delia's room and get Billy to leave. Billy hesitated.

At Gloworm, Jack met Ashley and demanded to know why Tucker hadn't finalized the Jabot deal. Jack expected Tucker to have sold Jabot to Jack already. Ashley said that Tucker had been working non-stop, especially with Sofia in the hospital. Jack wanted Tucker to live up to the agreement they'd made before the hearing. Ashley was sure that Tucker would honor the deal with Jack.
In his office, Tucker was on the phone, conducting business. After hanging up with one client, Tucker took another call and was made a new offer Jabot. Tucker was impressed by the amount of money being offered because it was considerably more than what Jack had offered for the company.
Jack and Ashley went to Tucker's office. Jack wanted to complete the Jabot deal. Tucker admitted that he'd received an excellent offer for Jabot from a buyer other than Jack. Tucker said it had been an anonymous bid, but it was three times more money than Jack had offered for Jabot. Jack suggested that the mystery buyer could be Kay trying to get Jabot back.
Jack became angry and reminded Tucker that he'd made promise to Jack. Tucker said that there was no proof that Tucker had ever made such a promise. Jack said that Ashley had witnessed the promise. Jack was shocked that Tucker would put his wife in the middle of their argument, and Ashley asked Tucker not to force her to choose between her husband and her brother. Tucker said that he'd be a lousy businessman if he didn't at least think over the deal for Jabot.
Jack was fuming, but Tucker smiled and handed Jack the signed document, finalizing the deal. Jack looked at the papers transferring ownership of Jabot back to John Abbott, Jr. Jack was overcome to have Jabot back in the family. Jack recalled that he'd convinced his father to take the company public many years before, and that was how Victor had gotten control of Jabot, which had led to other people acquiring the company over time. Jack wanted to celebrate with the whole family, but settled for a hug from his sister.
Alone in the office apartment, Ashley and Tucker shared a glass of champagne. Ashley toasted Tucker for doing the right thing by being true to his word. Tucker admitted that he had been tempted by the other offer, but he had realized that Jabot was something very important to the Abbott family. Tucker said he didn't want McCall, Unlimited to be the only legacy he left behind for his son. Ashley kissed Tucker, thanking him for having done a good thing for her brother.

Lily said she was going to Genevieve's to get some answers. Cane asked her to stay at home, telling her that he was on his way to see her. Ronan warned Cane not to tell Lily what was really happening with Colin.
Cane arrived at Lily's and said that he was very concerned about her and the children. Cane promised to tell Lily the truth very soon, but Lily was unconvinced that Cane was being honest with her. Lily was unwilling to live by Cane's rules any longer. Cane asked Lily to keep away from his parents, implying that both Colin and Genevieve were dangerous.
Cane explained that he'd promised to keep certain information secret, but he wanted Lily to know that Genevieve's house was not safe. Lily couldn't trust Cane, and when she tried to leave the house, Cane stepped in front of her. Cane said he would not leave the house unless Lily agreed to stay away from Genevieve's house. Lily said she wanted nothing to do with him or his family. Lily ordered Cane to keep away from her.
Jack went to Genevieve's to celebrate that he'd gotten Jabot back. Genevieve was thrilled for Jack and touched that he wanted to share the news with her. Jack revealed that Tucker had received another bid and had nearly sold it to someone else, but he'd lived up to the deal he'd made with Jack. Genevieve was proud of Jack for his tenacity.
Ronan was on the phone about the status of the case. Ronan told the person on the phone that Jack was in the house with Genevieve. Ronan urged the man on the phone to get to the van before everything went down. Ronan mentioned how much work the man had put into the plan. Ronan left his cell phone in the van.
Ronan returned later, and Cane followed him into the van. Ronan reported that Jack and Genevieve were together. Cane told Ronan that Lily had been furious with him for giving orders without explanation. Ronan said that nobility wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
Jack and Genevieve were kissing on the couch. Genevieve jumped up to get some special champagne to celebrate. Jack said he didn't need champagne. Genevieve remembered that Myrna wasn't there to serve the champagne, so Genevieve invited Jack to go to Gloworm with her for a proper celebration. Before leaving, Genevieve recalled that Lily had wanted to stop by. Genevieve left a message for Lily, explaining that she'd be leaving the house and suggested they meet another time. Jack and Genevieve then left the house together.
Lily thought about what Cane had told her and contemplated what to do. She gazed at a photo of her with Cane and the children. Lily remembered getting a Christmas gift from Cane. Lily then placed a call to Jill and left a message about her frustrating visit with Cane. Lily informed Jill that she was going to go to Genevieve's even though Cane had told her not to.
At Gloworm, Genevieve and Jack ordered champagne. Genevieve insisted on paying because she was throwing the party for Jack. Jack was happy to be fêted by Genevieve. Ronan and Cane received word that Jack and Genevieve had gone to Gloworm. Ronan suddenly noticed that his cell phone was missing. Someone was using Ronan's phone to send text messages.
Ashley thanked Tucker for making Jack happy with the Jabot deal. Tucker's phone rang, then Ashley's rang, too. Ashley checked her phone, and so did Tucker. They both had messages from Ronan. Ashley and Tucker agreed that the calls to meet at a remote warehouse on the outskirts of town were not a coincidence. Ashley and Tucker were confused. Jack and Genevieve were celebrating at Gloworm when Jack received the same text message from Ronan that Ashley and Tucker had received.
Lily arrived at Genevieve's and knocked on the door. The door opened, and Lily announced that she was there. Lily walked in and saw that nobody was in the house. In the van, Cane pushed past Ronan to save Lily from whatever danger was lurking in the house. Cane burst into the house and tried to get Lily to leave the house.
Ronan was upset because he needed Cane to get Lily out of the house. Ronan was glad to see Chance show up at the van, and together they hurried to the house. Lily resisted Cane's attempts to get out of the house. Lily then said she smelled gas. When Lily wouldn't run, Cane picked her up and carried her out. There was an explosion. Outside the door, Lily and Cane watched as the house burned. Inside, there was a body on the floor.

Tucker and Ashley contemplated why Ronan would summon them to a remote warehouse, and Tucker thought something didn't feel right. Ashley worried that Ronan had found evidence linking them to Diane's murder, but Tucker refused to think the worst and changed the topic to their wedding. He reminded her that he had promised her a day she wouldn't forget, and he wanted to throw a lavish party to renew their vows. Ashley loved the idea. Tucker expected that she would ask Traci to be her maid of honor, but Ashley wanted Abby to stand up for her. Tucker was skeptical, since Abby despised him.
At Gloworm, Abby approached Genevieve and Jack, and Jack happily announced that Jabot was his again. Abby congratulated him, and Genevieve invited her to join them for a celebratory drink. Gloria interrupted to ask if Genevieve had gotten her message, but Genevieve was distracted by a phone call, and she soon exclaimed that there had been an explosion at her house. Genevieve rushed out, with Jack and Gloria close behind. Abby answered her phone to Ashley, who asked her daughter to stop by. Abby said she was on her way, but as she hung up, she saw an incoming text from Ronan.
Abby arrived at Tucker and Ashley's penthouse and expressed surprise that Tucker had sold Jabot to Jack. Tucker declared that he wanted Ashley to be happy and that he was glad to see the company back in Abbott hands. Abby reluctantly acknowledged that Tucker had done the right thing. Ashley hoped that Abby would feel the same way about being her maid of honor. Abby was stunned, but Ashley hoped the offer proved that Ashley had faith in Abby. Abby hesitated to respond.
Ashley declared her love for Abby and maintained that she'd proven that she'd do anything for her daughter, and she begged Abby to do the same for her. Abby started to thank Ashley for asking her, but Tucker interrupted. He said that Abby's answer wouldn't change the fact that he and Ashley were already married, but he intended to spend the rest of his life proving his love for Ashley, and he hoped Abby would be there to make their day more special. Abby noted that Tucker could be a jerk, but he wasn't the monster she'd made him out to be.
Abby believed that Tucker loved Ashley, and nothing made her happier than seeing Ashley treated like gold. Abby tearfully agreed to Ashley's request, and the women hugged. Abby suggested a holiday wedding, and Tucker said it couldn't be soon enough. Abby remembered that she had to meet Ronan, and Tucker and Ashley admitted they'd received the same text message. Abby wondered why Ronan would want to meet with all three of them.
Cane and Lily lay on the ground coughing, and Cane explained that there had been a gas explosion. Lily asked if he'd followed her, and Cane admitted that he had been watching the house, because Colin had put out a hit on Genevieve. Lily inquired about Colin's whereabouts, but Cane didn't know. Ronan informed Cane and Lily that an ambulance was on the way, and he informed Lily that Cane had saved her life. Lily questioned how long Cane had known about Colin, and Cane disclosed that had been working with the police for a while to take his father down. Ronan vowed to arrest Colin that night, and he commended Cane's heroic efforts.
The paramedics arrived, and Chance led them over to examine Cane and Lily. Lily was shocked to learn that Chance was also involved in the operation. The paramedics wanted to take Lily to the hospital, and Cane urged her to go, just to be safe. Chance explained that the FBI and the military had been working on Colin's case, too. Ronan said the sting had been an intricate operation, and Chance added that Colin had been involved in drug trades in the Middle East. Lily realized why Cane hadn't been able to say anything, and Cane remarked that he'd been working with the police since before Caleb's death, but he'd had to keep mum because lives had been in jeopardy. Ronan asked where Colin was.
In his Athletic Club suite, a handcuffed Colin assured Jill that whatever she'd heard had been a big mistake. Jill snickered and informed him that she'd overheard his phone conversation about going ahead with his plan. He chuckled and suggested that she could be screwing up a big surprise, but she condemned him for thinking she was stupid. Colin pointed out that they hadn't known much about one another when they'd gotten married, but they'd followed their hearts.
Colin admitted that he had done things that he wasn't proud of, but he insisted that Jill was the one genuine thing he'd found in his life and that his love was real. He begged her to look him in the eye and believe him. Colin implored Jill to trust him, and she forlornly wished she could. He pleaded with her to let him help her do so, and she started to lean in for a kiss, but she pulled away and barked that he'd pay for breaking her heart twice. She called the authorities and triumphantly revealed Colin's whereabouts.
Ronan received a call, and he proclaimed that Jill had Colin cornered in his suite. Ronan suggested that Cane head to the Athletic Club to witness the arrest, but Cane wanted to stay with Lily. She urged him to go, but he was determined not to leave her side until he knew she was okay. Genevieve, Jack, and Gloria arrived, and Genevieve asked what had happened. A paramedic said they'd found a woman inside the house who had been badly burned. Genevieve tearfully assumed that the woman was her housekeeper, Myrna.
At the hospital, Genevieve surmised that Myrna had returned from grocery shopping and had been in the kitchen at the time of the explosion. Gloria was bewildered, because the house had just been inspected. Genevieve was confused when Gloria mentioned putting the house back on the market, because Genevieve had never had any intent to sell. Lily and Cane arrived, and Jack wondered if Lily had been examined already. Lily explained that they had stopped by to check on Myrna.
Genevieve fretted that the doctors wouldn't tell her anything about Myrna because she wasn't family, and she had no idea how to get in touch with Myrna's next of kin. Jack was relieved that Lily had escaped, and Lily credited Cane with saving her life. Jack called Cane a hero, but Cane downplayed his role. Genevieve declared that she was very proud of her son, and she apologized to Lily. Genevieve commented that they were both victims of a faulty gas line, but Cane divulged that Colin had plotted to kill Gloria and Genevieve.
Cane said the police would confirm that someone had tampered with the gas line, and Gloria realized in horror that someone had tried to lure her to the house to kill her. Genevieve was incredulous that Colin would ever make an attempt on her life, and she asked where Colin was. Cane replied that his father was in the process of being arrested, and Genevieve wanted to see Colin before the police hauled him away. Jack didn't think it was a good idea, but Cane assured them that Ronan would be there. Jack mentioned his meeting with Ronan outside of town, and Cane pointed out that there was no way Ronan would make it in time. Jack contemplated whether or not he should go to the warehouse.
Colin begged Jill not to listen to rumors, because they'd both regret it. She retorted that she'd never regret a second with him, but he'd pay for what he'd done to her. Ronan rapped on the door, and Jill let him in. Ronan laughed at the sight of Colin handcuffed to the bed. Chance appeared in the doorway and called Jill's name.
Jill embraced Chance, who promised to explain everything after they dealt with Colin. Jill was relieved that Chance was safe. Ronan taunted Colin about his lackluster finish as a crime lord, but Colin insisted it wasn't the end. Ronan rattled off the charges against Colin, but he noted that Colin's latest scheme to kill Genevieve and Gloria was what had nailed him. Jill couldn't believe it, but Chance said they had the hit man in custody, and thanks to Cane and Jill, they'd put Colin away for a long time.
Colin crowed that he had diplomatic immunity, but Chance disclosed that it had been revoked, because the official Colin had bribed had pleaded guilty. Ronan proclaimed that it had taken years, but they'd finally nailed Colin for his many crimes, and he read Colin his rights. Jill said she never wanted to see Colin again, and he countered that she talked tough but that she was still in love with him, and he had never lied about loving her. Genevieve and Gloria entered, and Gloria spat that Colin had messed with the wrong woman, because she was a survivor.
Colin asked for the police to take him away, but Genevieve confronted him with the fact that he'd tried to kill her, even after everything they'd been through together. He claimed he hadn't, but she shook her head and knowingly stated that he never could lie to her. She said his life would end with him growing old in prison. Ronan and Chance led Colin out, and the three women compared notes about how Colin had charmed them. Genevieve commented that they'd all been burned and that they were lucky, because they'd survived.
Later, Cane entered Lily's hospital room and informed her that he'd arranged for the nanny to stay with the twins overnight. He offered to check on them personally, but Lily took his hand and admitted that she didn't want him simply to check on them and then go. She stated that she wanted him to be in all of their lives for good, and he said that meant a lot to him. She apologized for not trusting him and lamented that he'd risked everything to get Colin off the streets. Cane hated what he'd had to do, but Lily understood that he had been in a bad position, and she had never been prouder of him. She called him her hero, and she swore that nothing would keep them apart. They kissed.
At Crimson Lights, Phyllis received a copy of the text message sent with Ronan's phone. Nick approached her, and she reprimanded him for sneaking up on her. He wondered what she had been reading, but she turned the topic to the newspaper photo of Sharon and Faith. Nick wasn't thrilled it had been published, but he explained that Avery had been adamant that it could help Sharon. Phyllis' expression immediately turned sour at the mention of Avery's name. Nick's phone rang, and he received the same text message from Ronan.
Phyllis asked what Nick's text message was about, but he avoided giving an answer. She said she'd received a text from Ronan. Nick read the message aloud, and Phyllis disclosed that hers had been the same. She wondered what Ronan was up to, and Nick recalled how Diane had summoned everyone to the park on the night of her death. Phyllis speculated that Ronan had evidence on Nick and that he hoped that Phyllis would rat Nick out, but Nick reminded her that both their alibis had already been blown apart. They both questioned whether either of them suspected the other of killing Diane. Nick asked point-blank if Phyllis had committed the crime.
Phyllis glared at Nick, but he suggested that they back one another up, since neither of them had alibis. She didn't think it was a good idea, because he could be lying, and it wouldn't be in her best interest to support him. He insisted he wasn't lying, and she contended that she wasn't, either. Nick conceded that it would probably get him in more trouble if Phyllis lied for him. Phyllis recalled the scratch on Nick's neck she'd seen the day after the murder, and Nick thought it would be better if he didn't mention that Phyllis had threatened Diane the day before the murder. They agreed to keep the information to themselves.
Nick suggested he and Phyllis drive together, but Phyllis wanted to take her own car. She felt that something was off regarding the meeting location. Nick tried to call Ronan, but there was no answer. They left separately to head out to the warehouse.
Victor arrived to see Victoria, who showed him the text from Ronan. Victor declared that Ronan wanted to meet with them, and Victoria realized that Ronan had contacted Victor, too. Victoria worried that Ronan knew that Victoria had seen Victor and Diane together in the park on the night of the murder. Victor suggested that they get their stories straight.
Victor confessed that Ronan knew that Victor had been in the park the night of the murder, and Victoria realized that Ronan knew she had lied about spending the evening with Victor. Victor contended that Ronan didn't know that Victoria had also been in the park. Victor advised Victoria not to say anything and to allow him to handle the situation, because neither of them had killed Diane. Victoria revealed that she had lost a bracelet, and she was fairly sure she had worn it on the night in question. She was concerned that she'd dropped it in the park.
Victor pointed out that many people frequented the park, and a piece of jewelry wouldn't convict Victoria. He urged her not to answer any questions unless Michael was present. She thanked him and wanted to discuss what had happened between Victor and Diane that night, but Victor instructed her to forget she'd seen them together. Victor understood that Victoria was nervous, but he assured her that he'd handle Ronan and that they'd be fine. She felt that something bad was about to happen, and they left for the warehouse.
Jack arrived at the warehouse and called out for Ronan. Tucker, Ashley, and Abby walked in, and they realized they'd all received the same text message. Nick and Phyllis followed, and they again recounted how Diane had sent them all text messages on the night of her death. Victor and Victoria entered and wondered what was going on.
Tucker assumed they'd have to ask Ronan why they'd all been summoned, but Jack suspected it hadn't been Ronan's doing. Victor questioned who was behind the meeting. Suddenly, the lights went out, and a film projector mysteriously turned on and displayed the image of a newspaper bearing the headline, "Who Killed Diane Jenkins?" Meanwhile, at the hospital, it was revealed that the female burn victim had a tattoo of a black cat.
