Written by Ellen
Jordan finds Hilary enjoying a glass of champagne at the athletic club bar. He guesses shes behind Juliettes sexual harassment suit against Cane and shames her. Hilary thinks Juliette deserves justice if she was wronged. True, Jordan says, but he observed Juliette and Cane together and didnt see anything improper, and Juliettes timing is suspect. Hilary says theyll just have to wait for the truth to come out. It always does.
At home, Cane tells Lily about the suit. She cant believe Juliette would do such a thing. Cane is sure Victoria will nip it in the bud. But he might think again. At that moment, Victoria meets with Michael at Brash & Sassy. No matter Juliettes demands, Victoria wont settle.
The open mic night crowd gathers at the Underground. Mariah asks Noah what Tessa decided about Devons contract offer. He shrugs. Tessa appears in the doorway and waves to them.
In the Abbott living room, Jack is flooded with memories of his mother singing to him and showing a little affection. Hes brought back to the present when Ashley walks in, just back from a meeting in Milwaukee. She cant stop thinking about Graham, their mothers constant companion.
Again at the Ashbys: Cane denies Juliettes accusation. Who knows why she made it? Perhaps for money. In any case, hes sorry to put his wife through such an ordeal, but they have to deal with it. Lily is prepared to do so, but she asks directly whether anything happened in Tokyo that might be construed as harassment.
Graham returns to the suite with a peace offering for Dina. The flowers are lovely, but shes already forgiven him for getting short with her. Thats fine, but he doesnt think Ashley has. From what hes seen, Dinas children havent been very respectful and he feels protective toward her. She responds with a peck on his cheek.
At the Abbotts: Ashley describes what she saw in their mothers hotel room. After Dina refused to return to Paris with Graham, he grabbed her by the wrist. Frankly, Ashley is worried about her. Considering Ashleys original hostility toward their mother, Jack takes her concern to heart. Theyll get to the bottom of things.
Mariah corners Tessa at the bar. Is she excited about signing with Devons company? Tessa demurs. Mariah doesnt owe her any favors. Its not a favor. Mariah didnt have anything to do with it. Tessa can ask Devon. Here he comes now.
Abby meets her first entrepreneur/tenant in the athletic club dining room. He has a few complaints about the infrastructure---plumbing and electrical work---but otherwise, the space is a dream come true. Big-ups to his investor/partner. Abby blushes. This project has personal significance, so shell do anything to make it a success. It wont hurt that Victor has decided to make the incubator part of Newman Enterprises. Their meeting concludes. Abby spots her grandmother across the room and greets her with a hug. Over wine, Dina asks about the young man Abby had been sitting with. Business only with Zach, Abby says. Dina says theres nothing wrong with mixing business and pleasure. Shes so proud of Abby for pursuing her project despite others doubts and offers advice, should Abby desire it.
Victoria tells Michael that Juliettes accusations are baseless. Cane had no power over Juliette. He couldnt give her a job; he just put in a good word with Victoria. Victoria didnt give Juliette the position she applied for, but the one she got was pretty darn good. This is nothing more than Juliettes taking revenge for her termination. Once again: Victoria will not settle. Shell go to court, if necessary.
At the Ashbys: Lily understands that after closing the deal in Tokyo, Cane and Juliette celebrated together, and thats it. This lawsuit sounds like Hilarys doing. Cane thinks Lily might be onto something. He needs to know Lily is in his corner and she is. They go their separate ways when Cane is summoned to Michaels apartment and Lily takes off on an errand.
Mattie and Erin made it to the Underground. Reed is glad she took him up on his invitation and introduces the girls to his cousin Noah, who runs the place. Mattie marvels at Reeds nerve. Is it hard to get up and perform in front of everybody? At first, he says, but then he gets into the music. Its how he expresses himself. He runs off to prepare. Mattie is clearly smitten but plays it cool in front of Erin. Across the room, Tessa feels indebted to everyone shes met in Genoa City and it makes her uncomfortable. Nonsense, Devon says. Shes a talented musician, and hes running a music business---not a music charity. He tells her to take her time deciding. Noah bounds onstage to introduce Reed, the first act of the night.
Jack and Ashley approach Dina in club dining room after Abby steps away to take a call. Ashley gets to the point. She and Jack dont think Graham has her best interests. If Dina doesnt want to return to Paris, she can stay at the house. Jack will speak to Graham. She objects. He mustnt! Graham approaches.
Reed gets a big hand. At the bar, Tessa expresses pride in her pupil. Noah wont let her divert attention from herself. Whats preventing Tessa from accepting Devons offer? Or should he say who is preventing her?
Abby runs into Victoria at the athletic club. She flaunts the early success of her project, the one Victoria shot down. Victoria sighs. She didnt shoot it down, and shes happy for Abby. Really. And its good that Dad has a child whos interested in taking over at Newman. Abby is so insecure, she cant take this as the compliment its meant to be. Meanwhile, in the foyer, Lily confronts Hilary about her role in Juliettes lawsuit.
At Michaels apartment, he invites Cane to sit and tell his side of the story. He should give details and leave out nothing. Cane tells the same version he told Lily. After the deal was sealed, he and Juliette toured the town in a hired car and returned to the bar for sake. A lot of sake---on an empty stomach. He was in worse shape than Juliette was, so she helped him to his room. Then he woke up the next morning. Michael nods. Is Cane willing to testify to that under oath?
At the Underground: Reed is eager to hear Matties opinion. Not bad, she says. It takes guts, thats for sure. Reed says once hes in the zone, its a cinch. She laughs. Now he sounds like her brother after a lacrosse match. When Erin wanders away, Reed asks Mattie if shed be interested in seeing a movie with him sometime. She says OK but nothing more. Erins mom is there to pick them up. As the girls rush out the door, Reed realizes he doesnt have Matties phone number. Across the bar, Tessa assures Noah her reluctance has nothing to do with her acquaintance from Chicago. Mariah intrudes and sends Noah back to work. Tessa tells Mariah theres no deep, dark secret. The man shes avoiding means nothing to her. She was just hoping to get a fresh start in Genoa City. Shes a loner and hasnt had many friends over the years and shes not used to being helped so generously by so many people. So, Mariah asks, is Tessa going to make a run for it? Mariah hopes not. Noah returns from the bar and Mariah recedes. Tessa apologizes for seeming ungrateful to Devon. No apologies necessary, Noah says. Just say yes.
At the athletic club: Victoria tells Abby to quit being so paranoid and enjoy her success. Abby softens a little bit. It seems about time for another family dinner. Whatever happened to those? Victoria supposes everyone got too busy. Hear, hear, Abby says. Shes been busy getting acquainted with her grandmother and launching a business. The sisters part amicably but not before Victoria offers a piece of business advice: Plan well, but expect obstacles. In the foyer, Hilary tells Lily to be ready to stand by her man because the story is going nationwide. When Hilary excuses herself take a call, Jordan, who had been standing beside Hilary, speaks up. Hes sympathizes with Lily. Lily cant fathom what went wrong. She and Juliette were friends. Jordan plays devils advocate. Cane and Juliette got along well, but not always. He reminds Lily that she walked in on an argument between the two of them. She dismisses it. It was about a business schedule. Well, Jordan quotes Hilary, the truth will come out. The trouble is Canes reputation and marriage are at stake.
Before Cane leaves Michaels apartment, Michael advises him not to speak to Juliette. All communication should take place through their attorneys from now on.
Dina bids a tearful goodbye to Jack and Ashley in the club dining room. As she walks away, Jack agrees with Ashley. Something is amiss and they cant allow Dina to leave with Graham.
