Lily rushes to the hospital at Canes request. Its not bad news. She finds Cane holding his baby boy.
Hilary goes to Jacks house with an offer he cant refuse.
Abby and Scott run into each other on the Newman Enterprises elevator. He wants to talk about their relationship but shes not amenable.
At the apartment, Billy presents Phyllis with a gift. Shes stunned: Its a photo of a horse, but not just any horse---Phylly (a combination of their names) is a race horse, which they now co-own. What does Phyllis think? She thinks its insane, and she loves Billy for it. Theyre overcome with passion and celebrate their new acquisition. Later, Phyllis feels guilty for playing hooky and has to get to the office.
Gloria sits at her desk outside Ashleys office. Lauren is upset because Phyllis is nowhere to be found. Shes skipped two days of work. Gloria blames her truancy on Billy, the rogue Abbott. Ashley approaches and orders Gloria to get Jack on the phone for her.
At the Abbotts: Hilary wants Jabot to sponsor her TV show. In the midst of her pitch, Jack gets Glorias call and says hes too busy to talk to Ashley. This doesnt sit well with Ashley. Minutes later, he gets another call. Apparently theres a trespasser on the property. He summons Traci and Dina and solves the mystery. Hilary trashed Abby on her television show, so Dina wants her gone.
Scott pursues Abby into Victors office. Abby is afraid to have a serious discussion with him because the last time they did, they nearly kissed. Exactly why he thinks they need to clear the air. He isnt ashamed of having sex with her. In fact, he cant stop thinking about it and wants more of the same, but its not going to happen. Hes committed to Sharon. Abby is disappointed. She suggests it might have been a mistake to move in with her if his heart isnt in it. He insists its what he wants, but Abby has doubts.
At the hospital: While the babys vitals are checked, Cane and Lily talk. He cant thank Lily and Mattie enough for donating blood for Sam. Its lucky they share his type. Lily is genuinely happy for father and son and predicts a bright future for the two of them.
At the Abbotts: Traci leads Dina into the kitchen for a cup of herbal tea while Jack and Hilary hash out a deal. He drives a hard bargain. He wants top billing and heavy promotion of Jabot products, and he wont stand for any more tabloid-type stories if the show is to be associated with the Abbott family name.
At Jabot: Ashley is livid because Jack quashed a deal she made. Gloria offers no support. Her loyalty remains with the real CEO of Jabot Cosmetics. Just then, Jack calls Gloria and asks her to tell Ashley about Jabots new partnership. Hilary arrives, as promised, and is escorted into Ashleys office. Shes ready to get the ball rolling, but Ashley says there will be no sponsorship. Shes calling the shots now, not Jack.
Phyllis runs into her boss in the Jabot lobby. Lauren is understanding but really needs her right-hand gal now. Things are tense between Jack and Ashley and that could mean trouble for Laurens company.
Billy comes to the house to say goodbye to Traci, who is leaving tonight but wishes she could spend more time with her mother. Jack steps away to take a call from Hilary. He assures her hell take care of Ashley. Billy and Traci overhear and offer their advice on how to handle the situation, but hes not pleased with Ashley and intends to let her know. Meanwhile, Ashley calls a board meeting.
Again in Victors office: Scott says theres nothing more than chemistry between him and Abby. He asks her to keep quiet about their interlude because he doesnt want Sharon to find out about it. Before she can respond, shes called to Jabot.
At the hospital: Lily is able to spend time with Cane because Victoria gave her the day off, which was kind of her. Cane agrees shes not such a tyrant. Shes even been nice to him lately. The baby is brought back and Cane takes him in his arms. He asks Lily if shed like to hold him. She does and shes smitten. Hilary lurks in the corridor and watches. Lily becomes overwhelmed with emotion, hands the baby to Cane, and runs from the room.
The board, including Lauren, Billy, Traci, and Abby, gathers in Ashleys office. She has a quorum without Jack and Kyle, so she proceeds. The upshot is Jack is undermining her decisions and compromising the companys stability. Therefore shes asking them to vote her official CEO. Before a motion can be made, Jack breezes in and apologizes for his tardiness. His secretary just told him about the meeting. He and Ashley quarrel in front of the group until he adjourns the meeting so that he can speak with Ashley privately. They talk about honoring John Abbotts legacy---*my* father, Jack says. Low blow. Ashley retaliates. Jack is less like John Abbott than she is. And it was Jack who allowed Jabot to be overtaken by Newman, which caused their fathers heart attack. Perhaps thats why Jack is now so eager to gain their mothers approval. Jack has heard enough and orders Ashley from *his* office, and he advises her to watch the Hilary Hour, which Jabot will be sponsoring.
At the hospital: Hilary and Cane talk about Lilys acceptance of his new reality and agree its a lot for her to process. Cane asks Hilary if shed like to hold Sam and she recoils. Babies arent really her thing. Cane laughs, thinking he finally found her Achilles heel. She takes the challenge and melts.
In the Jabot reception area, Ashley pressures Billy and Abby to take her side against Jack, which they are reluctant to do. Inside the office, Traci tries to calm Jack. She ventures that hes clinging so desperately to the company because it represents their father, whom they already lost, and now they are losing their mother. Jack angrily denies it and immediately apologizes for snapping at her. They join the others in the lobby. Jack asks where Dina is. He left her with Gloria, but no one has seen them. They spring into action, searching the building.
Over drinks at the athletic club, Lily and Abby commiserate about family drama and men---who can understand them? Lily is surprised Abby is considering a relationship after what she just went through with Zack. Its complicated, Abby says. Lily knows how that goes. In spite of everything, she still loves Cane.
As Ashley scolds Jack for bringing Dina to the office in the first place, Dina returns clutching a tray of test tubes. Gloria explains that she found her in the lab, protecting company secrets. With the crisis averted, Jack again takes aim Ashley. Hell be out of town tomorrow, so Ashley can watch Mom. Have fun.
