Mariah has no regrets about San Francisco, and they reminisce about the good times the four of them had. Mariah cant help wondering whether Tessa is moving out to get away---from the intensity of the ordeal with Crystal, from Mariah . . . Absolutely not!

Cane says shes a good person. Father and son agree to reconvene at the Chancellor residence and then take a flight to meet Jill.
At Crimson Lights: Reed knows so much about divorced parents, he could write a book. Mattie still struggles with the idea and feels pulled in two directions. Then the worst happens: Victoria catches them together, and despite Reeds pleas, she cant ignore it.
Phyllis is working on her laptop in the living room when Billy comes home. They greet each other affectionately and talk about doings at Brash & Sassy. Victoria must be relieved to be out of the woods for the time being, Phyllis guesses. Yes, but hes reluctant to give details.
When Lily comes home, she finds Charlie but no Mattie. Before they can figure out where she is, she appears, with Reed and Victoria. Lily asks how Mattie arranged their meeting at Crimson Lights. She borrowed a friends phone. Mattie is quick to defend herself and rails against the injustice of not being able to see Reed. To her surprise, Victoria agrees with her.
At Crimson Lights: Nick and Sharon think this is a big step for Noah, but they like Tessa. Noah moves on to business matters. By the way, did Nick ever resolve his banking problem? Nick says yes but little else. After Noah leaves, Sharon demands the truth. Shes outraged that Victor emptied Nicks account. What is Nick going to do?

Victoria is particularly hostile these days. Hilary laughs it off, but Jack tells her not to toy with Victoria. Shes cut from the same cloth as her father. Naturally, Hilary cant turn down a challenge like this one, but Jack must allow her to report the story as she sees fit. He wouldnt have it any other way.
After more cuddling on the sofa, Phyllis decides to draw a bath. Shell let Billy know when its ready. She leaves the bait (i.e., her open laptop) on the coffee table and ascends the stairs to observe. Billy is tempted but resists. He goes to the fridge and cracks open a beer. Phyllis, with her phone, sweetens the pot by sending herself a message. The computer chimes, and Billy practically salivates. He tries to distract himself but cant resist the sound of yet another incoming message on Phylliss computer. She watches as he prepares to log in, but before he can do so, she summons him.
Alone in the Ashbys kitchen, Lily and Victoria recall their experiences with bad boys and the grief they caused their folks. All in all, they agree their kids could do worse and decide to allow them to see each other, with ground rules. Mattie and Reed are thrilled to get the word.
