Devon finds Hilary at the GC Buzz studio. He was impressed by her on-air apology. Its bound to cost her some fans, though. Hilary isnt too concerned about that. His opinion is the only one that matters. She hopes Devons change of attitude might mean theres hope for their marriage, but no. He considers her just another employee on the payroll.
Jill is ready to sell Brash & Sassy to Billy, Victoria, and Cane. Why? To raise cash to reclaim something that was stolen from her.
Jack and Gloria argue in his office. Hes sorry he cant make good on his promise of a job, but he owns only 49 percent of Fenmores. Gloria isnt satisfied. He could find a place for her if he wanted to. After all, he didnt throw her out of his bed. Outside the office, Ashley tells Phyllis that Ravi is her employee and JabotGo is his priority. Then she walks in on Jack and Gloria.
At the Underground, Nick is stunned to hear that Dylan flew the coop. Noah has no details, but its sure to rock Sharons world.
At home, Mariah falls apart when Sharon tells her that Dylan left her. After a few tears, Mariah becomes angry and wants to give Dylan a piece of her mind. No, Sharon says. He wanted a clean break and shes prepared to give it to him. Well, whatever the case, Mariah has Sharons back. Sharon is glad to hear it. They need to be strong for Faith. The news will destroy her.
In Jacks office: Ashley demands to know whats going on. Its all about Lauren, specifically the deal she cut with Jabot. Gloria leaves it at that and storms out. Ashley wants details from her brother. Why is Gloria behaving like a scorned woman? Without waiting for an answer, she goes on to complain about Phyllis hogging Ravis time and talents. Jack says theyre all one big team now, so Ashley will have to share resources, including Ravi. Ashley walks out in a huff and runs into Ravi, who, coincidentally, was on his way to tell Jack where his loyalties lie---with Ashley. He heard Ashley and Phyllis fighting over him and hes flattered, but hes curious about the dynamics between them. Ashley suggests they go somewhere more private so she can explain.
Again at Brash & Sassy: Jill intends to buy Jacks share of Fenmores. Shell have the papers drawn up for the sale of the company but demands confidentiality for the time being. She doesnt want Jack to get wind of her plan. Billy and Victoria seem all in; Cane seems lukewarm.
Sharon goes to the main house. She should be the one to tell Faith that Dylan isnt coming back and why. Nikki and Victor invite her in.
At Brash & Sassy: Billy needles Cane about having enough money for his share of the company. Cane is good for it. It fact, he expects to buy out Billy. Very funny, Billy says.
As expected, Faith doesnt take the news about Dylan well. She blames her mom for driving him away, just as she did Daddy. Everyone runs from Sharon. After Faith flees the room, Nikki shows compassion for Sharon and commends her sacrifice. Sharon doesnt feel any better. Faith is right. Dylans departure is Sharons fault. After Sharon leaves, even Victor takes up for her. Theyll get Faith to forgive her mother. Nikki asks Victor to let her handle it.
Victoria runs into Phyllis in the Jabot lobby. They have a short, contentious conversation, which is interrupted by a call from Reed to his mother. Phyllis cant help but notice the desperation in Victorias voice. After Victoria hangs up, Phyllis tries to offer support but ends up saying all the wrong things. Phyllis knows the pitfalls of raising a teenage boy, and Billy mentioned that he was trying to help. Victoria tells her to mind her own business.
At the Underground, Ashley confesses that she doesnt like to share. She advises Ravi to do as she says and not as shes done: keep his business and personal lives completely separate. Shes made lots of mistakes and has a box full of old wedding rings to prove it. When Noah serves their drinks, she introduces him as her daughters nephew. See how complicated things can get? Ravi shakes his head. If someone like Ashley cant get it right, what hope is there for the likes of him?
Gloria ventures into the GC Buzz studio and introduces herself to Mariah as Kevins mother. Kevin tells Gloria that Mariah is completely trustworthy and in the business of exposing the ugly truth. Gloria would like to tell her story of sexual harassment and intimidation by one of the biggest corporate heads in the city.
Again at the Underground: Ravi tells Ashley about a dating site he was familiar with and the algorithm it used. What type of man does Ashley go for? She supposes an alpha male. She has strong opinions and isnt afraid to voice them, so she needs a man who can stand up to that. Ravi is a bit surprised and suggests she try casting a wider net. A very confident person often doesnt have to overstate it. Point taken. If Ravi comes across such a man, he should point him toward Ashley. He will. She deserves to be happy.
Jill comes home to find Esther back at work, maids uniform and all. And Esther is glad to be there, despite Colins presence. Colin ends his phone conversation and hears Jills latest scheme. He bristles at the thought of Jills taking on more responsibility. He hoped to spend more time with her. He brightens a little when she reveals her intent to sell Brash & Sassy. He proposes a cruise to melt away her tensions and prepare her to do battle with Jack.
Victoria returns to Brash & Sassy and lets Billy have it. Would he please refrain from discussing her personal life with Phyllis. Billy leaves in a huff.
Mariah sits down with Gloria in front of a rolling video recorder and isnt disappointed. Under the pseudonym Clarissa, Gloria names Jack as the powerful executive who made promises, exacted sexual favors, and then cast aside this poor, older worker who just needed a job.
Nick pays Sharon a visit at home. Hes concerned about her. Shes flip. He neednt be. Shes taking her medication and staying on the straight and narrow. The pain of disappointing Faith again is another matter.
Again at the ranch: Nikki tries to explain things to Faith. Yes, Sharon lied to Dylan about Christian, but the situation isnt so simple. The fact is everyone is hurt and sad, and with her words, Faith made her mom feel worse.
At Brash & Sassy, Cane gloats on the phone to an unidentified person about his imminent purchase of a cosmetics company.
When Hilary returns to GC Buzz, Mariah tries to tell her about her big interview and make suggestions for its presentation. Hilary tells her to run with it. She has other business. She marches up to Devon and presents him with an envelope: divorce papers, as he wanted.
Faith walks into her moms house and surprises her with an apology and a big hug. Nick looks on.
At Brash & Sassy, Victoria confides to her father that shes about to become a part owner of Brash & Sassy. Victor isnt impressed. Why settle for a third? The company was her idea from the beginning. Shes offended.
Jack finds Gloria at the athletic club bar downing champagne. Whats she celebrating? His demise . . .
Billy gets on the Jabot elevator with Phyllis. Theyre the only two passengers, and hes still fuming from his exchange with Victoria. Phyllis makes a seemingly innocuous comment that strikes a nerve. He pulls the stop button, grabs her, and kisses her.
