Ben arrives at Victorias early in the morning and showers her with gifts.
Chelsea is also up early. Billy descends the stairs and catches her talking on the phone. She hangs up abruptly and isnt forthcoming with details. He persuades her to tell. It was about Adams estate. She knows Adam isnt Billys favorite person, but shes saddened by the finality of it. Meanwhile, Sage tracks Adam to his club suite. Coming back to Genoa City is a bad idea.
Nick and Noah stock the bar and conversation turns to the custody battle. When Noah tries to get Nick to back down, for Faiths sake, Nick assumes that Sharon put him up to it. Nick claims hes protecting Faith. Mariah arrives and says the one she needs protection from is Nick. Hes not acting in Faiths best interest. At least the three of them agree that Faith takes top priority. Nick refuses to back down, though. Hes glad that Noah and Mariah support Sharon. Shes going to need them.
Jack is unwilling to rehire Sharon. Hes bitter about what she did to him and Summer. But Phyllis had no right to fire Sharon, she protests; only Jack can do that. And losing her job at this point might prevent her from gaining custody of Faith. Sorry, fashion is Phylliss department now. She can staff it as she sees fit. Jack agrees to give Sharon a job recommendation, but he wont ever forgive her.
Fen meets Summer on the Crimson Lights patio. They talk about old times, and he invites her and Austin on a ski trip. Summer doesnt know if Austin is a skier. Fen notices that she doesnt seem to know much about him and all. Shes defensive.
Chelsea shows Billy the christening gown she made for Katie. He suggests they deliver it now, together.
Adam is being reckless, and Sage is concerned about Constance. Adam suspects theres more to it. Sage seems to have had a special bond with Gabriel, so now shes clinging to Adam, who bears Gabriels face. He crassly tells her to get over it. The guy is dead. Adam has a plan: Hell re-win Chelsea as Gabriel Bingham and eventually reveal his true identity. Hes delusional. If he does that, hell be held accountable for killing Delia. The reality is that Sage is Adams lifeline. Shes the only one who knows hes alive, and he needs her and owes her. Adam is undeterred and leaves.
Chelsea and Billy enter the house to find Ben holding Katie. This is becoming a habit. Victoria says get used to it. She and Ben are seeing each other. Billy doesnt want to argue. In fact, he wants to call a truce with Ben. He misjudged him and regrets ruining his life. Furthermore, as Chelsea said earlier, theyre building one big, happy family. In keeping with this, Chelsea presents Victoria with the gown. Victoria is touched.
Mariah advises Nick to forgive. Forgiveness can change the universe. As she speaks in Sharons defense, Sharon appears.
Fen apologizes. Hes protective of Summer, like her dad. Which one? Well, Nick, of course. Hes always been Summers father. They commiserate about their parents and are grateful for their enduring friendship.
As Noah praises Mariah for having Sharons back, Nick and Sharon argue audibly. Sage lurks in the doorway and listens.
Jack comes home and calls out to Phyllis. No answer. Hes startled to find a strange man in the living room. He panics and starts to dial the police. Adam identifies himself.
Mariah takes Sharon aside and coaches her. Noah shakes his head in disgust at Nick and walks away. Nick spies Sage and feels the need to explain his behavior. He wants her to think his life was worth saving. He asks about her family life. She demurs. Hes due to pick up Faith and has to run but hopes shell come back again.
Back home, Chelsea and Billy agree it was a good visit, and theyre glad to be together. She can see that something is still bothering him, though. Yes. Seeing Katie reminds him of Delia. Delia always wanted a little sister. Now she has one whom shell never meet. But maybe she can. . . .
