Cane rattles around the Chancellor mansion all alone and pours himself a stiff drink. He gets an unexpected visitor: Juliette. She brings sustenance in the form of Chinese takeout.
Mariah and Tessa are all dolled up. This is a big night for both of them. Its Mariahs first date with Devon since their falling out, and Tessa is set to impress a big-time music promoter.
Scott and Sharon commiserate about their dead-end. Its as if Alices car vanished into thin air. Sharon reconsiders. Maybe Alice really is a traveling salesperson and not a sex peddler. In any case, shes stumped about how to proceed, but Scott isnt.
At the penthouse, Nick and Chelsea prep for their family dinner. Nick rambles about his skills in the kitchen (hes attempted to cook), but Chelsea is distracted. Shes worried about what Victor might pull while Nick is on his business trip.
Kevin is back in town and summoned by Victor to the ranch. Victor is bitter about the money Nick won in a lawsuit against Victor years ago, and especially now that Nick has crossed him. He wants to reclaim those funds and transfer them into his own account without Nicks knowing. Kevin is stunned. Is that legal? Victor says its Kevins job to find a way around that little detail.
Lily is glad Mattie is home. Shes booked a table at the club for them tonight so they can have a girls night out. Matties not in the mood and implies shell remain so as long as shes kept from seeing Reed. Lily begs her to be mature and try to work through her issues. Mattie turns the tables. As Lily is doing with Cane? Mattie hasnt seen any evidence of it. For Matties information, Lily and Cane attended their first marriage counseling session today. Mattie perks up. This means theres a chance.
At the Chancellor place: Juliette sees that Cane doesnt want to break bread with her, so shell leave the food and go. Cane isn't that much of a clod. He invites her in, and is she relieved. She and the baby are starving! She digs in while he nurses his drink and wallows in self-pity. He has low expectations of the marriage counseling.
At Sharons: Tessa feels guilty for all her good fortune while her sister is out there enduring God knows what. Mariah tells her not to dwell on it. Theyll rescue Crystal eventually. In the meantime, Tessa should keep working toward her goals and enjoy her success. Tessa thanks her for always being in her corner. As Mariah keeps saying, shes Tessas biggest fannext to Noah, of course. Devon and Noah arrive to escort the ladies to the club. Change in plans: Noah has a family dinner to attend first. Tessa is prepared to tag along with Mariah and Devon, but Noah says shes to come with him. Shes reluctant but says OK. Finally alone, Devon plants a big kiss on Mariah. He couldnt wait to do that.
At the penthouse: Nick tells Chelsea to forget about Victor. He has. Hes focused on his project with Noah. Funny how different his relationship with is son is compared with Nick and Victors. . . .
At the ranch: By access Nicks account, Victor means hack into itthats Kevins forteand transfer $500 million into Victors account. Liquidating the investments could be tricky, but Kevin can figure out something. Kevin flinches at the thought of prison and Victor wonders why. Kevin has broken the law before. When he says he cant, does that mean he wont?
At the Ashbys: Lily and Canes marriage remains in limbo, but that doesnt mean he doesnt love Charlie and Mattie as much as ever. Mattie rolls her eyes. Shes heard it all before. She thinks if Lily permits him to move home, it might help things along. He might again be fun Dad, not the tyrant hes become. Lily says allowing Cane back into the family home wont guarantee a reprieve for Mattie and Reed, and she wonders whether Mattie can honestly forgive her father all hes done. She says maybe, but Lily has doubts.
At the Chancellor home: Juliette is stuffed! She moves to help clean up, but Cane insists its the least he can do after she cooked. He segues into a discussion about family responsibility and how his kids are making it hard for him to live up to his. Juliette is optimistic things will work out. Cane cracks a smile and she calls that progress. Its good to see since theyll be raising their own child together. He stares blankly. Thats what he wants, right?
At Crimson Lights: Scott has been busy researching sex-trafficking organizations. Its worse than one can imagine, including drug addiction and indentured servitude. His aim is to infiltrate the ring again and question some girls about Crystal. Sharon is grateful for his effort but concerned about his safety. Hes determined to finish his article on the subject, but hell do whatever she wishes.
Noah and Tessa arrive at the penthouse. Noah hears that his dad is cooking and theres lots of good-natured teasing. Tessa meets Faith for the first time and is charmed, but Noah notices Faith isnt herself, particularly when he asks about summer camp.
At the ranch: Kevin knows Victor and Nick have a rocky relationship, and an act like this could end it for good. He urges Victor to reconsider. Victor questions Kevins skills. Have they diminished? No way! Victor assures him that this transaction will remain their little secretno authorities will know and no time will be served. Kevin considers for a moment and then accepts the job.
Sharon and Scott prepare to leave the coffeehouse for the Underground, to show support for Tessa. She and Noah are doing well and Sharon has come to accept her as part of his life. However, shes happy to report that Noah is taking it slowly. And speaking of her children, Sharon is ready to tell Faith about her involvement with Scott.
At the penthouse: Nicks dinner is a complete failure. Pizzas are ordered and drinks are poured. Tessa learns about the Newman family tree and its complicated: Connor and Christian are cousins even though theyre living like brothers. Faith asks Tessa about her family and is especially curious about her sister. Chelsea distracts Faith by asking for help with dessert in kitchen. Noah and Nick apologize for that awkward moment, but Tessa takes it in stride.
At the Ashbys: Lily cant get past the child thats on the way. Mattie blows it off. All Dad has to do is write a check and move on. Perhaps, but has it ever occurred to Mattie that Lily might not want to reconcile? Mattie thinks she knows the reason for her moms hesitation, and he knocks at the door now. Jordan apologizes for his poor timing, but Mattie says his timing is perfect. He and Lily can make use of that club reservation. She leaves the room. Lily calls and cancels the reservation and unloads on Jordan. Repairing her marriage has been hampered by her continual run-ins with Juliette and pregnant belly. At those times, Lily maintains her composure, but she rages on the inside. Juliette gets to carry Canes childsomething Lily never did and never will do. Come again? Jordan didnt know about the twins birth via surrogate because of Lilys ovarian cancer. He tries to boost her spirits. Hes sure Cane loves her regardless. Yes, but it grates on Lily. Jordan reminds her that none of this mess is her fault. She nods. Cane lied, but shes still conflicted.
At the Chancellor estate: Cane seemed as concerned about the babys health as Juliette was. Did she misread him? Cane emphasizes that Lily, Charlie, and Mattie are his priority. Juliettes face falls. She understands. Her baby will never be equal to Canes other children. Juliette, on the other hand, gushes about her boy and intends to give him the world. As for names, shes considering Algernon or Wilbur. Cane grimaces and makes an unkind remark. Shell have him know those are two family names. While he stands mouth agape, she smiles and says gotcha! The truth is Cane needs to commit one way or the other.
At the Underground, Mariah and Devon kill time before the show starts. Theyre excited to have the promoter in attendance. This could be huge for Tessa, and for Devon. Sharon and Scott arrive and interrupt them mid-kiss. Sharon takes Mariah aside and gets the skinny. So far, so good with Devon.
On the penthouse stairway, Faith confides to Noah that Grandpa was mean to her dad and then lied about it. Noah tries to burnish Victors image, or at least make him look like less of a jerk. Grown-ups arent perfect, he says. Yeah, well, Faith thought Grandpa was. . . . Back in the living room, Chelsea calls for a toast to Noah and Nicks success.
Tessa and Noah arrive at the Underground. They greet their friends before Tessa slips backstage to prepare. Irv, the promoter, strolls into the club with a young woman on his arm. He makes small talk with Devon and Noah and company before being escorted to his table. Mariah comments privately to Devon about Natalia, the girlfriend.
Faith and Nick have a moment alone at the penthouse after the party. Shes excited to spend time at the ranch with Mom while Nick is out of town, but shes not ready to see Grandpa. Whatever she feels comfortable with. Its her call. She thanks her dad and gives him a big hug.
Over after-dinner drinks at the ranch, Kevin and Victor talk strategy. Kevin will come up with something. He gives Victor one more chance to back out, but Victor is determined. Nick turned the grandkids against Victor, and thats unforgiveable. Nick might regret pushing Victor to his limits, but Victor couldnt care less. He intends to give Nick exactly what he wants: total independence.
At the Ashbys: Jordan urges Lily to make the decision thats best for her, not the one she thinks is best for her kids. She cant make that distinction. Kids mean a lot, which is why shes so concerned about the pull Juliettes baby will have on Cane.
Cane and Juliette talk more names and almost seem to enjoy themselves. At one point, Juliette is so moved by his sensitivity that she leans in to kiss his cheek, and then his lips.
At the Underground: Irv gazes at Natalia and says shes even prettier than her picture on the app. Across the crowded bar, Sharon points out the music promoter to Scott. He recognizes Natalia but cant recall from whereor at least thats what he tells Sharon.
