At Brash & Sassy, Michael is dumbfounded. Why, all of a sudden, does Victoria want to settle the sexual harassment case? Because Cane admitted he had sex with Juliette and thats not all---shes pregnant. Michael considers this and feels sorry for the Ashby family.
At Crimson Lights, Reed makes a pest of himself while Mattie tries to study. Calculus in the summer? Did she flunk? No, shes just trying to get a leg up for next year. Wow. He never met anyone who volunteered for summer school. Say, about that movie she agreed to see with him . . . Too busy, she says.
In Jacks office, Dina defends her decision. Shes leaving most of her estate to Graham, not all of it. Jack isnt comforted and takes potshots at Graham. Graham, ever the gentleman, offers to leave, which Dina thinks is best. After hes gone, Dina demands her children respect her wishes. To this point, Ashley has remained silent, but shes with Jack on this one. Dina stands firm. Graham gave up plenty to be with her. Please! Jack protests. Ashley points out that even Dina used the word deal when she referred to her arrangement with Graham. What are they to think? Dina couldnt care less. She just wanted to get everything out in the open, and now it is. Gloria returns to her desk in the reception area and finds Graham there. She giggles and flirts shamelessly.
At an athletic club table, Victor tries and fails to reach Nikki by phone. Tessa arrives for her meeting, and Victor questions her about Nikki. Did Tessa know Nikki intended to leave town? Does she know Nikkis whereabouts or when she plans to return? No, no, and no. Victor is concerned. The concert is coming up soon. Tessa isnt keeping a secret for Nikki, is she? Across the room, at the bar, Hilary attempts to boost Juliettes resolve. Shes pregnant, so now she holds all the cards. Devon overhears and when Juliette leaves to take a call, he approaches Hilary for details. Not here. She invites him to talk in her suite.
At Crimson Lights: Mattie doesnt like being made fun of for showing initiative. Reed takes the hint and backs off, but not for long. He returns and apologizes. She barely looks up from her work, so he takes a seat next to her and starts writing on a pad of paper---song ideas, specifically titles, all about Mattie. She smiles and says shes unaccustomed to attention from boys. And yes, she can squeeze a movie into her schedule. Charlie bounds up to defend his sister from what he assumes (or hopes) are unwelcome advances. Charlie and Reed insult each other until Mattie puts a stop to it. Reed gets off one more zinger before he promises to call Mattie later and leaves. Charlie cant believe his sister intends to go out with that guy. She jokingly suggests they double. Charlie can bring Zoey.
At Brash & Sassy: Whether or not the baby is Canes, Victoria is ready to pay, and pay dearly. Michael agrees to keep a lid on the story while the details are hammered out. He admires Victorias poise under stress. On the outside it must appear so, she says, but inside she rages.
Cane comes home to face Lily. She isnt jumping for joy about the settlement. Cane accepts blame and realizes hes not a very popular guy these days. For sure, Lily says. He should be glad Neil left before Cane returned. Cane did a lot of thinking on the drive home and wonders whether they still have a marriage. What a question! Lily has one for him: Why did he sleep with that woman? That he didnt mean to cheat means nothing. He not only cheated, but he told one lie after another. And hes not helpless, as he claims; hes weak. Was he exacting revenge for Lilys cheating years ago? Absolutely not. Actually, in her eyes the two incidents dont compare. Cane allowed Lily to defend him. How humiliating. After working so hard to rebuild their marriage, why would he tear it apart again?
In Hilarys suite, Devon talks nonstop about the mess Lily is in. He holds out hope that Cane isnt the father, but Hilary thinks thats unrealistic. Devon continues. He knows firsthand what broken trust can do to a marriage.
At the club: Tessa evades further scrutiny. Nikki is Tessas boss, not her best friend. Nikki confided nothing. She moves to leave, but Victor has another request. Hed like Tessa to open for Nikki at the concert. It will calm Nikkis nerves. Tessa would love to. And one more thing: If she hears from Nikki, shes to let Victor know.
Tessa makes a beeline for Mariahs house. She unloads about Victors grilling and her command performance at the charity event. Tessa agreed to it, but she isnt sure how that will affect her contract with Devon. Mariah talks her down and proposes they watch the sequel to that horrible movie they saw the other night. Tessa is game, but why no plans with Devon tonight? Hes busy.
In Hilarys suite: Devon asks a favor of Hilary. Would she keep the story off the air? Hilary agrees to do so. That was too easy. Why is she so concerned about Lily? Everyone knows how Hilary feels about her. Hilary means what shes been saying along. She wants to be a better person, and she cares what Devon thinks of her. She always will. He thanks her and leaves.
At the Ashbys: Cane wants Lily to fix their marriage? He doesnt ask much, does he. Cane grovels. Hell do whatever it takes to make it up to her. She reminds him that shes not the only injured party; they have children. He again takes the cowards way and proposes not telling them. Too late. Charlie and Mattie walk in and ask whats wrong.
In Jacks office: Ashley explains that she and Jack are concerned about their mother. Dina still says my life, my decision. In the reception area, Gloria comes on like a freight train. When Graham solves her computer problem with a touch of a key, hes a genius. And he smells wonderful. What is he wearing? DARE. She playfully scolds him for uttering the name of the competition. Dina spoils the fun when she emerges from Jacks office and leaves hand in hand with Graham. Jack wants an immediate conference with Ashley to discuss their next move, but Ashley needs a drink and heads for the athletic club.
At Brash & Sassy, Reed tells Michael about open mic night. Michael is aware. Lauren showed him a video of Reeds performance. He hopes to catch one live someday soon. Michael turns to Victoria and assures her hell handle that private matter they discussed. Victoria obviously has had a tough day and Reed wants to hear about it, but shed rather talk about him. OK. Hed like an advance on his allowance. She guesses it has to do with a girl. Yes, but hes short on details about her. She goes to Walnut Grove, so Victoria probably doesnt know her. Victoria is flustered and distracted and Reed asks again whats wrong. She gives him the abridged version. She was forced to settle the lawsuit because of an employee who lied to her. Now she needs to decide how to handle that employee.
At home, Charlie and Mattie hear about the settlement. Charlie takes it as a good sign. This means its over and done with. Call him when dinner is ready. Mattie is more astute. This means her dads accuser will get paid for telling stories. She also notices that her parents arent as happy as they should be. Lily tells her not to worry. Mattie tries once more to get her parents to spill. When they wont, she offers a sympathetic ear whenever theyre ready, and she speaks for Charlie too. When she goes to wash up for dinner, Cane thanks Lily for keeping mum.
Devon pays Mariah an unexpected visit. He hopes hes not interrupting the girls evening. Not at all. Tessa was on her way out. After she leaves, Devon tells Mariah about his encounter with Hilary. Things look bad for Cane. No one is more surprised at Hilarys restraint than Mariah. Devon confesses he asked Hilary to sit on the story and she agreed. This raises red flags for Mariah, but Devon is willing to give Hilary the benefit of the doubt.
Ashley stares into her glass of wine at the club bar. Victor greets her. Is she meeting someone? No, Ashley is drinking alone. Her mother drives her to it. Victor already knew Ashleys concerns about Graham, and they are well founded. Ashley and Jack neither need nor expect money from Dina, but they fear shes being taken advantage of. Jack is even more upset than Ashley is, but thats probably no concern of Victors. Victor doesnt deny it. He tells her about his run-in with her brother the other day. They talked about the concert, which is shaping up to be big success.
Gloria breezes into Jacks office and dumps a report on his desk. Before she gets to the door, Jack asks her intentions toward Graham. Shes vague. Jack tries to pin her down by telling her hes filthy rich, or he will be when he inherits Dinas fortune. My, my! Gloria says. She walks back to her desk with a smile on her face and the wheels turning.
In her suite, Hilary reviews the video she made of her private conversation with Juliette, in which Juliette disclosed her sexual encounter with Cane. Theres a knock on her door. Juliette is all smiles. Its done! Brash & Sassy settled. Juliettes money troubles are over, thanks to Hilary. She throws her arms around Hilary, but Hilary doesnt share her enthusiasm.
