Jack arrives at the old Chancellor mansion with a gift for Jill. Esther tries to prevent his entering, but Jill hears him and invites him in. Shes settled on the sofa and resents being treated like an invalid. Jack knows shell recover; only the good die young. That comment and his gag gift of a Jack-in-the-Box get a laugh out of her. As soon as possible, she aims to finalize her purchase of his Fenmores shares. Jack already knows she cant. Colin stole all her money. Jill becomes riled at the mention of his name. Jack plays devils advocate. He thinks Colin means well. Jill wont be distracted from her main goal, which is to hold Jack to his agreement.
At home, Lauren is distraught over Scotts disappearance on the job. When Phyllis arrives to work on the virtual dressing room app, Lauren tells her all about it. Lauren last heard from her son on Valentines Day. Phyllis urges her to stay positive, but Lauren has a bad feeling. She cries.
Gloria takes a phone message outside Jacks office. Michael surprises her. Hes cynical about her job and tries to get her to tell why she accepted it. Gloria has ambitions. She doesnt intend to stay on the bottom rung for long. Moving on, Michael requests a meeting with Jack. Gloria says hes not in and she doesnt know where he is or when hell be back. Michael thinks that should be one of her main responsibilities. What exactly are they?
Sharon is in control behind the Crimson Lights counter. Noah applauds her, but is she sure she prefers this to the world of fashion? Yes. Dylan left it to her. Noah winces. He still cant understand why Dylan left her the way he did. Sharon has put it behind her and encourages him to do likewise. Shes not hiding anything. But Noah has been. He and Marisa broke up.
Phyllis plays mother hen. Why doesnt Lauren take the day off? Has she eaten? Lauren refuses to leave her apartment for fear of missing a call about Scott. OK then, Phyllis will order in and answer the phone if need be while Lauren showers. Afterward, they review the app.
At Jabot: Gloria rattles off a list of her duties and then asks what Michaels business is with Jack. Hes to go over the Fenmores purchase but gives no details, which makes Gloria crazy with curiosity. She pouts. Its one thing for Michael and Lauren to kick her out of their home, but to shut her out of their lives hurts even more. Shes family. Well, Gloria should have thought about that before she sabotaged Laurens business deals.
At Crimson Lights: Marisa went back to Spain to be with her daughter and Noah wasnt up for the move. His family is in Genoa City and he loves his job. Working at the Underground has given him a glimpse of the single life and it looks appealing. Sharon sees his point and thinks that might her problem. She married and had Noah when she was very young---which she doesnt regret---but she never got a chance to date casually. Noah returns to the subject of Dylan. Even Grandma defended him. She said he had no choice but to leave town. What did she mean by that? Sharon, never one to keep a secret for long, spills. Nikki, Paul, and Victor know the whole story. Dylan left to protect Sharon and those close to her.
At the Chancellor mansion: Jack tries to calm Jill. Despite what he said earlier, he thinks she should quit Colin, cold turkey, and concentrate on her recovery. Jill wont let go of the Fenmores stock deal. Jack appeases her by saying he looks forward to receiving her offer. He kisses her on the head and leaves.
At Jabot: Gloria insists that Jack finally recognized her talents and hired her, but Michael doesnt buy it. She helped Jack strong-arm Lauren into selling to him, but he no longer needs her. What does she have on Jack? Gloria gives up. Its true. She has X-rated photos of Jack and is blackmailing him. Ha, ha. She almost had Michael going, but he hopes if that were true shed hold out for a bigger reward than a receptionists job.
Again at Crimson Lights: Sharon lets it all out: about the vengeful drug cartel, the witness protection program, everything. Noah is apparently unfamiliar with the witness protection program because he cant understand why she cant have contact with Dylan. At the very least, why did Paul ask Sharon to perpetuate such a cruel story about why they separated? Sharon has to admit, its not entirely untrue. Her lie about Christians paternity inspired Dylan to take a dangerous assignment. Sharon cant tell Mariahthe gossip show hostor Faith. If she changes her story again, Sharon will never regain Faiths trust. Nick cant know the truth either, Sharon warns. Her secret is safe with Noah.
Jack arrives at his office. He overrides Gloria and accepts Michaels unscheduled meeting---and Gloria is not invited to listen in. Michael explains that he is functioning as Lauren's proxy. Scott is missing. Jack is sympathetic and offers help. Does he have contacts in the intelligence community? If not, the best thing he can do is give her space. Jack has no problem with that, now that Jill is no longer breathing down his neck to sell his shares. Michael is stunned. Its the first hes heard of it. He wouldnt wish a heart attack on anyone, but hes glad Lauren wont have to do battle with Jill.
At the Chancellor mansion: Jill scours her portfolio for more stocks to sell. Esther hovers and tells her to prepare for a healthy bowl of Mediterranean-style soup. Jill balks and grouses about everything. Esther says Mrs. C would be disappointed in her defeatist attitude. Jill consents to eat a bowl of soup and sends Esther away. Colin rings the bell, and despite her best efforts to slam the door in his face, Esther cant keep him out. He wants to pick up his clothes while Jill is still in the hospital. Too late, Jill calls out from the living room. Hes not surprised shes making such a speedy recovery. He admires her. Jill isnt flattered. She orders Esther to help bag up his clothes. She cant. Billy donated them to charity. Jill gets angry. That was her decision to make!
Gloria is caught listening in on Michael and Jacks meeting. She knows something is going on with Lauren, but Michael divulges nothing and leaves. Jack wont violate Michaels confidence. She reminds Jack of their night in the hotel and he caves. Scott is missing, so Lauren will be unavailable for a while. In that case, Gloria can pitch in and help manage the business. He objects. She butters him up with a shoulder massage.
At the Chancellor mansion: Jill takes on Colin by herself. Colin wanted to prove himself to Jill by scoring big with his investment. He was tired of being just arm candy. She shakes her head. She never saw him that way. Thats water under the bridge, anyway. He knows he lost everything, including her respect and her money. Esther returns. Lunch is served and Colin isnt invited to stay. After he leaves, Jill curses Esther for letting Billy dispose of Colins things. Jill is no longer hungry and wants to be left alone. Katherines portrait looms. She warned Jill about Colin. Katherine proved too that you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet a prince. Well, what if Jill prefers a frog . . . ? No. She'll bounce back and do as Katherine did: live till she dies.
Colin encounters a homeless man in the park. Hes wearing Colins cashmere coat. They talk about their hopes for the future and Colin leaves without attempting to recover his coat.
At Crimson Lights: Sharon and Noah toast to their futures and decide their lives are similar. Both make a living serving drinks and both are newly single. They promise to take care of each other.
Michael returns to Jabot and sees something that sears his eyeballs: Gloria massaging Jack and Jack seeming to enjoy it.
After agreeing on changes to the app, Phyllis leaves Laurens apartment. A moment later, Laurens phone rings. An unknown caller demands $10 million for her sons life.
