Eyes closes, Cane's lead to the suite. Welcome to Paris, Lily clings onto her man (who 'deserves' it).
At the club, Chris gives the OK that no handcuffs be used. Sharon then stoops to assure Faith that it's all pretend. Despite Adam and Sharon's demand that Victor fix this - now, he remains stony faced and silent.
Dashing into CL's, an excited Jack all but wrestles Ashley out (without even allowing her to get her coffee). You'll get a 'natural buzz', he promises.
Lucy in his arms, a confused Daniel flashes back to Daisy delivering. You OK? Abby wonders - as Vikki joins them to gush some more over the perfect baby Daniel's still looking unsure about.
Back in 'Paris', Cane has a surprise for Lily too; a piece of paper that has the date of their first kiss, at Indigo (taken from Lily's journal - the night Colleen threw her a divorce party). Flashback to the kiss. Cane remembers every kiss (including this one).
Victor will take Faith to Nick. Of course you will, Adam then wonders aloud who Victor bribed. Offering Faith a few more words of reassurance, Sharon leaves with the FBI. Adam walking off calling Leslie, Chris can't share the evidence with Victor (who's left with Faith - to call Nick). Huh? He's bringing Faith over? But Sharon made such a big production of seeing her. Victor will explain when he gets to Vikki's.
The Abbott's then welcome Jack and Ashley (who admires the baby in Nikki's arms as she's updated). Abby joins Daniel on the porch - why did he 'wig out' when holding the baby. OMG - that's it - Daisy's baby, she realizes. You think ....? Daniel stammers (but Abby's only referring to Lucy making Daniel think of his daughter) ~hug~
After room service wheels a table (and wine) into 'Paris', Lily reveals another surprise - her scantily clad self. Posing on the bed, she nibbles strawberries. Cane's in awe - run ragged by the twins, how is it possible that Lily's so beautiful? ~kiss~
As Jack and Ashley hover over the bassinet, Vikki's not happy to hear that Victor's coming (to deliver Faith). He'll fall in love with the baby, Nikki's sure. Arriving, Victor hands Faith to Nick (then stuns all by announcing Sharon's arrest - which he was 'coincidentally' there for). Jack blames Victor's act of revenge (against Adam - but hurting Sharon and Skye). Faith's handed back to Victor - as Nick flies out to the station. Meanwhile, Daniel leans over the bassinet - it's you, isn't it? How'd you get here? What do I do now? he whispers (as 'Mama' Vikki comes over to pluck her out). Victor may see no reason to stick around (as Nikki's requesting) - but Vikki does. Meet your new granddaughter.
Sharon, Adam and Leslie are met at the station by Chris (who hands over a transcript - provided by a tourist - audio of Sharon and Skye's meeting). The problem? Chris pops the tape in - allowing all to listen to the 'damning' evidence (which cuts off before Sharon tried to save Skye). Sharon's horrified to hear; murder one. 20-life.
Murder? How can they think that? No, Sharon didn't know she was being recorded. Leslie can challenge it - but Sharon's admitted to being there. Leslie then argues with the DA and Chris. Now in handcuffs, Sharon's lead off - I didn't do it! (a claim Adam backs fully).
Vikki again repeating the tale of the speedy adoption, Billy takes the blame for Victor not being called over. Vikki only wanted love and good wishes today - can Victor go along with that? Ignoring her (and Nikki), Victor heads out with Faith. Nikki follows to appeal - this is a special day - share it with your daughter (who then appears at the front door too).
In bed, Cane traces a rose petal up Lily's leg. More kissing - some whine - strawberries dipped in cream (which Lily tries to look seductive while eating). Flashback over their romance - the wedding - the twins.
Ashley takes Faith inside - so that Vikki can appeal to Victor (who won't pretend to be joyous - that child is the last nail in the coffin that binds her to that useless Billy Abbott forever). And while inside, all are delighted by Billy's love for his wife and baby, Victor's declaring the 'innocent child' a mistake - linking Vikki to that useless punk (who's inside crediting Vikki for his life). He'll be the proudest sonofabitch alive when he dances at both daughter's weddings. Victor's rant continues - he's embarrassed and ashamed of Vikki. Storming inside to get Faith, Victor exits - ignoring Nikki and Vikki (who's OK - she has everything she needs).
5 million for bail? Sharon will have to sell off her investments (which could take days) for the 500K needed. Aside, Leslie tells Adam that her services don't come cheap. Who knew Adam would miss that damn fund? Nick arrives to ask what the hell's going on? You think I'm a killer? (Nick's 'tone' and scowl indicate he just might).
You really think I'm a killer? Sharon can't believe that Nick doesn't believe her. I pushed her? Let her go? Nick's not sure what to think - HE thought they'd be married. It's all Adam's fault (and Nick's sure the custody order will be reversed). You're gonna take Faith away from me? Adam comes over to blame Victor. You know he did it. Nick flashes back to his father's lies (then asks for a copy of the arrest report). Hearing it's to take to family court, Chris will ensure Nick gets it. And since she's willing to hand their daughter over to this psychopath, she's capable of anything.
As all react to Victor's anger, Vikki's just fine with her new daughter in her arms (and supportive husband at her side).
Victor brings Faith to the tackhouse - where they'll have more time by themselves (since no one's home).
Still in bed, Cane gushes over Lily (whom he's blessed to have). He swears he'll give her and the twins the best. Lily doesn't need promises - nothing will ever change what we have.
I can't lose Faith, Sharon frets. Chris isn't buying Adam's story (that Victor's to blame). Her full attention is on the murder charges against Sharon. Adam vows to clear her name - they WILL be together (with Faith). And with one last lingering look, Sharon's lead off.
Jack, Ashley and Nikki arrive at the club to celebrate. Trailing behind, Daniel talks of people ending up where they belong. No, Abby's not missing some point. The Abbott's toasting, Victor (and his deplorable behaviour) are the subject. But never mind Mr Mumbles, let's talk about Lucy. Sending Jack and Ashley off, Nikki lingers at the bar to admire a bottle of vodka (and leave a message for Deacon).
At home, Vikki and Billy are still over the moon. Vikki hopes Victor was right - that Lucy will bind them together forever. This family is the best thing that ever happened to her.
Victor tells Faith that he'll protect her always - no matter what. Nick returns to announce that Adam and Sharon are hurling accusations. No worries - this is what's important, Victor hands Faith to her Daddy.
Next: You're not gonna marry Jill, Cane claims. You have no say in the matter, Collin replies ... Could you - just for once, find it in your heart to be my friend? Jill asks (Collin at her side). What do you think I'm doing? Kay shrieks (with Murphy and Ester) ... I don't give a rats behind about Sharon or her crisis, Jack informs Adam (as they're seated at the club).
My Thoughts: Ironic that Sharon's so upset about Victor lying to her - when she's completely forgiven Adam HIS lies... You want me to lie? Victor blinks at Vikki like he couldn't possibly ever do such a thing ... No reason for Victor to stay (at Vikki's)? You mean he didn't notice the big pink bassinet in the middle of the living room ... A tourist was close enough to capture Skye and Sharon's conversation - but didn't see Skye falling into the volcano? ... 20-life for Sharon? No parole? Silly Christ - doesn't she know that Sharon's unstable and 'loses time'? ... You're my captive, Lily gushes at Cane (which'd be funnier if per capita, GC didn't have more kidnappings than any other state in the US) ... How cheap IS Lily? OK - so I can see her not coughing up 4K for a bottle of wine - but couldn't she dig out a few bucks to tip the room service guy? (especially after he pulled missions to get that table on wheels inside the door without the wine glasses tipping over) You'd think someone on the crew woulda had the sense to tape em to the table .. Oh yeah - Lily's soooo 'run ragged' by the twins (whom she cares for all day long in high heels and haute couture) ... Gotta hand it to her tho - Lily has some body .. Isn't it kinda wrong for Cane to have gone through Lily's private journal (never mind ripping a page out) ... How IS it that Cane doesn't need the bilingual Lily to translate French? Didn't he recently admit (to Sophia) that he was just a dumb bartender? ... I have a question sir? Adam blathers on to the agents. I have a question too - what the hell's up with his explosive hair? ... If Leslie's services are so steep, what does it cost to get her out to the police station within minutes - after hours? ... With all the fuss over the Abbott's new baby, isn't it a bit odd that NOBODY bothered to take photos? You'd think they'd be lining up to have snapshots taken with the most beautiful baby in the world ... LOL - I'm right here, Adam assures Sharon (like SHE'S the one with no peripheral vision) .. I never noticed that tiny tattoo on Lily's wrist - what IS that? A fish? (or poisson as they'd say in France) ... I guess Lily's supposed to be looking sexy while eating that huge strawberry? Cane acts like he's never seen his wife in Sharon's bra and panties .. Lily's happier than she's ever been? Guess she's already forgotten his bizarre outburst over Blake downstairs. She doesn't 'need promises'? Didn't she basically ask him to promise that he wasn't keeping anymore secrets? .... Oh yeah Victor - children really 'bind' couples to one another for the rest of their lives (or until the kid's rapidly aged overseas - and the parents find other partners) ... Murder was never part of her plan, Jack says of Sharon (like she'd actually TELL him if it was) ... Isn't Victor going a bit overboard in being 'ashamed' and 'embarrassed' of Vikki? He didn't react that extremely when she posed nude as a teenager in that girlie magazine he had to buy up every copy of .... Looked like Jack gave Ashley whiplash while hauling her out of CL's ... I always get a kick out of hearing Daniel tell Daisy - could you try not to push - hold it in!!! I guess his memory loss is to blame for him forgetting to wash his hair? (still not sure what Nick's excuse is) ... Faith continues to steal scenes - though I still find it odd that they hired a baby boy to play the part ... If Nikki wants to get her mind off alcohol, forget the boy toy who's partly responsible for her relapse - perhaps she should move AWAY from the bar. And why would she think baby's have a miraculous way of healing families? Name one who has ... Have a great weekend.
