Written by Ellen
Sharon pours Scott a coffee at Crimson Lights. They reflect on Chloes death. Its given each of them new perspective.
At the police station, Paul gets approval for Kevins vacation. He hopes the two weeks give Kevin time to heal. He assumes Bella will go along, but no. Kevin thinks she should stay with Esther. He casually asks about the circumstances of Chloes death and whether the doctor she had been living with in Louisiana will be charged. Paul says no charges are forthcoming and Kevin should put it out of his mind. Kevin will try. He thanks the chief and leaves. Outside the office, he checks his bag. The gun with the evidence tag is there.
Dr. Harris and Chloe return to his home. He tells Chloe to rest and then makes a call. He assures Victor that Chloe is in good hands.
At home, Jack and Ashley share their suspicions about Graham. Ashley thinks their mother might even be in danger. They hatch a scheme to find out.
Dina and Graham breakfast at the club. Shell miss the place---not the club, specifically, but Genoa City. He agrees its been a good visit for her, but now its time to go home. He gets an unexpected call. Ashley found a photo album that Dina requested. Without hesitation, Graham offers to come pick it up. Ashley hangs up and Jack praises her intuition. Graham wants no more contact between Dina and her children.
Nikki thanks Noah for allowing her to practice the piano at the Underground. No problem, but the puny keyboard there is no match for the grand piano at the ranch. Nikki confesses shes a bundle of nerves about performing. Noah tells her not to worry. The family will be there to cheer her on. He gets back to work and she begins to play. She stumbles repeatedly over a difficult section and becomes frustrated. Tessa enters in time to see.
Chloe returns to the doctors living room. Shes tired but cant sleep. Doctor Harris says thats to be expected. The drugs he gave her to fake her death were powerful and will make her groggy for a while. Chloe is uneasy about Victors nuclear option. Even though she knows it was necessary, she cries for her loved ones. This will be hard on them. She wants Victors guarantee that hell pull no funny stuff. The doctor places a second call. Victor insists hes no murderer. Her death was an act and nothing more.
At Crimson Lights: Scott feels indebted to Victor, but he can no longer pretend to be interested in business. Hes a journalist meant for greater causes. Sharon supports him but doubts Victor will feel likewise. Does Scott have immediate plans for his career? He answers with a question: Does she need a barista? They laugh and kiss. Noah catches them and apologizes for his lousy timing. He needs an order to go, which Sharon fetches. At the counter, he tells her about Nikkis practice session and Tessas coaching her. Sharon wants to hear more about Tessa. Noah really likes her, but shes secretive, and that bothers Sharon. She doesnt want his big, generous heart broken again.
Dina is surprised by Jacks visit to her hotel room. He sees the bags half packed and realizes she intends to leave as planned. Is that Grahams decision or hers? Dina is evasive. When Jack persists, she insists she must go.
At the Abbotts, Ashley hands over the album and offers Graham a cup of tea. Shes sorry they got off on the wrong foot. He accepts. Ashley doesnt waste any time getting to her point. Dina sure is lucky to have someone like him. No, he says, hes the lucky one. Ashley admires her mothers business acumen. Shes amassed quite a fortune. Graham wasnt born yesterday and hes offended. Does Ashley think hes after Dinas money? Without flinching, Ashley asks whether he is.
At the Underground, Nikki comes unglued. The concert is too much pressure. Shes sure to screw up and drive away donors. Tessa tries to remain upbeat and encouraging, but Nikki continues her downward spiral. Victor hired Tessa to help Nikki prepare, but Nikki says its a lost cause and Tessa is free to quit. Nikki knows shes being set up to fail. Tessa is stunned. Why would she think so?
At the park café, Kevin conceals the gun in a paper sack and deposits it in a nearby trash can. Then he opens his laptop and sets about finding Chloes location. He nearly jumps out of his skin when Victor approaches from behind and offers his condolences. Kevin accepts graciously despite Victors known animosity toward Chloe. Victor learns that Kevin is about to take a vacation and is full of questions. Tahiti? Alone? Kevin explains: Tahiti is where he and Chloe were to honeymoon, and is anyone ever really alone in a tourist area? Victor hopes Kevin finds solace.
Again at the Underground: Nikki apologizes for overreacting. Surely since she began living at the ranch Tessa has noticed the tension between Nikki and Mr. Newman. She promises Tessa isnt the cause. In fact, Nikki likes having Tessa around. The two of them are much alike. Nikki had to pull herself up by her bootstraps too---until Victor came along and made her a lady of leisure. It was great at first, but somewhere along the line Nikki lost her sense of self and now stands at a crossroads.
At the Abbotts: Graham resents the accusation. Dina is not so easily manipulated, and furthermore, Graham doesnt need her money. Hes earned a nice living for himself. Ashley backs off a little but Graham wont let it go. He wonders whether Ashley is the one concerned about her inheritance. And he thinks Jack and Ashleys sudden concern for a mother theyve shunned for years is highly suspect. Dina knew from the get-go that this would be a short visit, but she insisted on coming one last time. One last time? Ashley asks. Graham shrugs it off. The future is uncertain. He rises and wishes her good day.
In her suite, Dina dismisses Jack and Ashleys concerns. Graham is protective of Dina, thats all. Jack still doesnt believe that one pleasant evening with the family is enough for her. It was meaningful to everyone, even Ashley. Dina tears up at the mention of the song she used to sing to Jack when he was a boy. She says shell be back someday, but thats not good enough for Jack. He demands the real reason for her departure.
At Crimson Lights, Noah tells Sharon to relax. Scott backs him up and heads back to Newman, presumably for a showdown with Victor. Noah likes that guy. . . . Sharon isnt so easily distracted from the topic of Tessa. Although Noah is a grown man, Sharon is still his mom and she hopes hell be careful.
At the Underground: When Nikki excuses herself, Tessa calls Victor. She doesnt think Nikki is ready to perform publicly. Victor says she is and Tessa is to make sure it happens without a hitch. Nikki returns to the bar and overhears enough. Why was Tessa talking to Victor?
At the athletic club: Dina admits shed like a bit more time, but its not possible. Jack fails to convince her otherwise and leaves reluctantly when Graham returns. He orders Graham to take care of Dina. Will do. After Jack is gone, Graham assures Dina she did the right thing. Dina disagrees and now plans to stay put. Graham reminds her that she didnt want her family to know. She sighs and agrees. He tells her not to worry. Hes there for her.
Chloe sketches a still life of fruit in the doctors living room. He admires her work. She says drawing relaxes her. In that case, hell make sure she has plenty of supplies. He again explains why they had to fake her death. She understands and is grateful for his help, but when he leaves the room, she pleads under her breath for Kevin to hurry.
