Climbing out of the tub Adam slept in, Phyllis is awakened when he trips the booby trap she set. With obvious trust issues dividing the 'partners', Adam gripes that their search has turned up nothing except Koa's clothes and 'trinkets'. When the dice he throws come up 7, Phyllis thinks it a good omen. Adam remains frustrated - the camera that proves Sharon's innocence is out there, somewhere - and Adam's not going anywhere until he finds it!
In Sharon's cell, Vance coaches his client - keep your cool at ALL times. Adam? Forget him - he bailed - think about looking good for the jury. Handed a bag of clothes, Vance about to leave, Sharon looks nervous when the guard announces she has a visitor.
Daniel and Mike arrive at Lauren's office - to update her and Kevin (that Daisy escaped - thanks to Daniel).
On the CL's patio, Jana yet again admires the ultrasound photos - sure she's on the verge of finding Daisy's baby. Chatting to Lucy in the stroller, she's excited about having a second chance with Kevin. Jana puts the print outs away to tell Chloe she's ever so sorry she broke up with Kevin (not). Oh OK - Chloe's right - Jana IS deliriously happy about it.
Seated at the club (but planning to drop by Lily's), Jill's touched by how much Collin adores the twins. Excusing himself, Collin approaches Lily, Neil and Liv. The twins with Traci, they're throwing a surprise birthday lunch for Sophia. After Collin moves on, the Winter's chit chat is interrupted when Malcolm brings Sophia over; surprise! Exchanging a hug with Sophia, Neil forces a smile as she rewards Malcolm's birthday wishes with a kiss.
Oozing sarcastic indignation, Mike informs Lauren and Kevin that, Mountie at the door, Daniel figured the best way to bring in a fugitive was to LET HER GO! Daniel explains that he only went to Canada to find his kid. Thanks to your bright idea, we lost the chance to put a violent criminal behind bars, Mike continues. Kevin wonders if Daisy has the baby. She MUST, Daniel assumes - or she'd have told us where she left it. As Kevin tries to make sense of it, Daniel covers his slip up - claiming he's merely speculating. Sorry, he mutters and stomps out (Kevin giving chase immediately). There you have it - I tried, Mike's left to conclude. Daniel tried too, Lauren wishes he'd been more understanding.
Back on the patio, Jana knew it was only a matter of time before Kevin dumped his 'rebound'. Chloe tells Jana to invent all the crazy little scenarios in her head she wants - cause that's what deranged people do. Say good bye to the bitter old lady, Jana chirps at the stroller (which she then wheels off). You dropped something, Chloe's soon sputtering - is that an ultra sound?! None of your damn business! Jana grabs it and leaves Chloe looking suspicious.
Wondering how to find Koa, Phyllis realizes that in his own creepy way, Adam really DOES love Sharon. Of COURSE Adam does - why else would he be 8,000 miles from home with a woman who drives him insane. Ohhh - maybe because there's a warrant out for his arrest? Adam will clear Sharon - THEN deal with that. And when Phyllis comments on his loyalty, Adam dishes it back (to the Queen of loyalty and devotion). Looking at his wrist, he thinks it time she went back to hop in the sack with Jack, or Nick. Adam shuts her up to point out the dice - loaded - to always come up 7. Koa was a hustler - a cheater!
Mom, you came, Sharon smiles as Doris is wheeled in (to quickly notice she's wearing Adam's ring again). Yes - one day Sharon WILL marry Adam again. Doris is aware that this isn't the first time Sharon's been set up - but Cameron was an evil man. THIS, Sharon did to herself. Doris knows that Sharon didn't kill Skye - but it's just one mistake after another, she lectures. It kills Doris - but she has no choice but to turn away (unable to watch Sharon destroy her life over the man who STOLE her baby). Your place was with your child - hiring Adam a lawyer is one thing - the rest (which Doris lists) is quite another. Abandoning your baby, yet again - for a man who's brought you nothing but sorrow (none of which seems to matter to Sharon). Doris just can't do it. Huh? But isn't Doris abandoning HER child now? Because she loves Sharon and Faith, Doris won't be in court today (and if Sharon was thinking clearly, she'd understand). And as Doris glides off, Sharon's left to weep silently.
With only the gambling lead to go on, Adam and Phyllis ask a hotel staffer about a craps game. No - gambling illegal, he replies. A private game? Adam hints - offering money. Now bribed, the staffer jots info down, hands it over and scurries off. Cash - the universal language - beautiful, Phyllis quips. Let's go place our bets, Adam leads the way.
Dressed appropriately, Sharon's lead into court and uncuffed. Vance joins her to wonder where Doris is. She's not coming - no one's coming, Sharon mopes (and is quietly coached to hold off on the tears). Inspired by flashbacks (of Adam telling her how strong she is), Sharon sucks it up and eyes the jury. The DA and Vance respond to the Judge - yes, both are ready to begin (Sharon, not so much).
Back at the club, Sophia oohs and aahs over her gifts. The last one's from Neil (a framed photo all find 'interesting'). Neil explains it IS interesting - Sophia's father used to play chess in the park. Malcolm, a photographer by the way, fake-grumbles about his brother showing him up. Sophia expresses her thanks - happy to be part of such a wonderful family. Jill and Collin come along with birthday wishes (and are encouraged to join in - the more the merrier). Lily thanks Collin for the mini rugby ball he got Charlie; a little piece of Australia. And as all admire Sophia's gifts, Lily dashes to the bar - to spin around a man - 'Cane'! Don't worry about it, not-Cane leaves Lily to look mortified (her family watching on with grave concern).
A shell shocked Lily's lead back to the table (where all downplay the incident - we've all been there - and that guy really looked like Cane). As Lily scurries off to the ladies room, Jill follows. Liv's now changed her tune - the funeral was weeks ago - this is still going on?
Mike can't apologize for his frustration (that Daniel messed up his one and only job). Hell yes! Lauren wants Daisy behind bars - but Daniel's only concerned with finding his baby (and good for him!) Mike can't fathom that Phyllis' 'savvy' son would believe such a ridiculous plan would work. Wait a minute - ah ha! Daniel DIDN'T believe it - it was a smoke screen. Daniel doesn't want Daisy found (because he doesn't want his baby found).
Kevin chases Daniel onto the patio - what made him think letting Daisy go was a good idea? She did hit you in the head and leave you for dead after all. You thought you had Daisy 'under control'?! How big a moron IS Daniel?
Chloe takes a seat across from Jana - which 'friend' does the ultra sound belong to? Must be a close friend. If you ask Chloe (which Jana didn't) it's pretty weird; carrying around someone else's scan is something an unstable person would do. You're not even denying it. Because the accusation's bloody absurd! Jana screeches. Billy and Vikki have no idea how unhinged Jana is - and Chloe's daughter isn't going anywhere NEAR that house (with Jana working there). Chloe sure CAN give Jana that ultimatum - just watch me!
Jury selection under way, Sharon's taking notes (and shaking her head as one by one, Vance questions the jurors). One man's scratched for displaying a grudge against Sharon because she doesn't work - another has a strong opinion on cheating. How about reading gossip magazines - such as RS? Allowed a minute to consult with his client (who's shaken her head 'no' for this juror too), Vance quietly wonders if Sharon's TRYING to spend the rest of her life in prison.
Adam and Phyllis, beers in hand, have gained access to a craps game. There must be games all over town, Adam's his usual pessimistic self - how do we know Koa will come here? Because he just did (Phyllis spots him at the door). Now what? If he sees Adam's face, they're 'sunk'.
Given how much Sharon's paying him, Vance suggests she let him do his job. We clear? Yes. Vance then goes back to questioning the 3rd juror; a single mother Sharon took exception to (though Vance thinks might be sympathetic).
Coming out of the ladies room, Lily finds a supportive Jill (who understands her eyes played a trick on her). And no, it wouldn't be 'selfish' of Lily - to wish Cane would pop up, out of the blue, like Philip did (after being thought dead for 20 years) ~hug~
Back at the table, Liv worries that Lily's clinging to a fantasy that Cane's alive. And while the rest seem insulted by the perceived implication that Lily's 'crazy', Liv wonders if it's not time her niece seek professional help. Unfortunately, Lily (with Jill) has returned to overhear.
The battle on the patio continues. Daniel's not dumb - so what was he trying to accomplish with the dumbest plan Kevin's ever heard? He just can't believe that Daniel let Daisy go. Lucy in her arms (Chloe at her side), Jana appears to blurt out - you found Daisy?!
Stepping off the elevator, Liv apologizes for upsetting Lily (who is NOT impressed that Aunt Liv thinks she should be committed to the psych. ward). Liv doesn't think anything of the sort - but there's no shame that Lily might need a little help through this terrible time. Big deal - Lily just had a momentary 'freak out' because she saw a guy who looks like Cane - that's all it was (not a hallucination). Lily promises that if she 'sees Cane' again, Liv will be the first to know.
Back at the table, Sophia's more concerned about Lily than the way her birthday lunch went awry. Neil stresses to all NOT to push this doctor thing - at least not yet. Malcolm agrees - no doctor's. Neil has no problems with Lily seeing a psychiatrist - if that's what SHE wants. And when Collin believes Lily 'resilient', Jill's reminded of why she married this marvelous man (who's rewarded with a kiss).
Differences set aside, Chloe and Jana gang up on the boys. So - did you find Daisy? Didya? Didya? Don't cut us off like this! She got away, Kevin stomps inside to make some calls. Chloe on his heels, Kevin warns that Angelo has spies - we can't risk it. Saying 'no' to going somewhere private, Kevin insists they have to 'deal with it'. And when Jana comes in nagging too, Kevin snaps - he doesn't care about Daisy - just the kid (whom Jana's holding - as Daniel's eyes shift from one to the other).
Mike's in PI mode - Daniel never wanted to be a father - was trapped into it - didn't want anything to do with the baby. My God - Lauren can't believe he'd betray her like this. Mike's been replaying it in his head - what he could and should have done. The man he was 10 years ago would have grabbed Daisy by her hair, thrown her into the trunk of his car. Part of him wishes he'd done just that.
Not to be out-evilled, Lauren recalls harassing Daniel (over Phyllis' objections) when he came out of his coma (determined to find out where Daisy was). The Lauren who survived Sheila Carter was in charge - sweet Lauren got the hell out of the way. Mike promises to find Daisy - and when he does, won't make the mistake of letting anyone else bring her to justice.
Look - this baby is Kevin's family - and Daisy raising her is NOT an option. Daniel couldn't agree more. Still holding Lucy, Jana's sure Kevin will find his niece. And now, she needs to get Lucy home - then, it's off to Tiny Tots. She hopes they'll keep her posted - yeah? Silence. Yes - well - alright - take care. Kevin's still scowling as he leaves Jana prattling aloud to Lucy. See? Kevin DOES want someone to find the baby - and that someone's gonna be ME (fast - before that stupid Chloe ruins everything). On the patio, Chloe calls Angelo - I need to talk to you - GCAC asap.
Jill and Collin off, Lily goes to the bathroom to retrieve her purse (Neil and Liv in hot pursuit). That leaves Malcolm and Sophia to hug (her smile fading as her eyes rest on the framed chess photo Neil gave her).
Catching up to Lily as she exits the ladies room, Neil and Liv are updated that she found her purse. As the elevator doors close, Lily sees Cane tilting his head to look at her. Sweetheart? You OK? Neil and Liv look worried. I'm fine, Lily manages to close her jaw and lie.
Back in the courtroom, Vance and the DA have selected a jury - and after a brief recess, the Judge will hear their opening statements. The trial's gonna start now? Sharon's surprised. Vance balks at postponing it. Reminded that the trial was bumped up, Sharon now wonders if that was a mistake. Vance is ready - and sees no reason to put things off.
Adam paces outside when 'Private Summers' reports for uniform inspection. In a short red dress, Adam thinks she'll be a distraction alright. That's what a woman wants to hear - now, where's the dice? Taking them, Phyllis agrees that gambling may be Adam's world - but (blowing on the dice seductively) this is her roll. And in she sashays - can anybody join? Phyllis sidles up to Koa at the head of the craps table.
Next: Thanks for meeting me, Chloe takes a seat. I'm dying to hear what you have to say to me, Angelo smiles ... Darn it, Phyllis rolls a 3 (close at her side, Koa mumbles something supportive) ... The DA addresses the jury - her irresponsible and reckless behaviour lead to the death of her other daughter. What!? Sharon jumps up - how DARE you say that!?
My Thoughts: Why is Phyllis prancing around Adam looking so hot? isn't she a tad overdressed for the craps shack? Good she thought to bring that smokin' dress along. But since they're 'runnin' a con', using loaded dice - shouldn't she be trying to blend in - not stand out? .... Admiring her ring, Sharon says she's never taking it off. But wouldn't it have been taken off and put in an envelope when she was incarcerated - along with the rest of her personal effects? Does Sharon wear that huge rock while mixing with the other inmates? Hope would be so happy to know her engagement ring was traded for a carton of smokes ... Adam and Sharon are quite the pair - he can't see clearly and she can't 'think clearly' (according to her own mother) ... Poor Adam - complaining that he's staying in a 'rat hole' (while Sharon's the one in lock down) - a place so filthy, it wasn't deemed fit for Daisy to safely deliver her baby there. Adam's, in his rat hole, is in a soaker tub big enough to sleep in - while Sharon's taking communal showers ... Convenient that English is spoken in dumpy underground gambling shacks in Thailand... Who's Adam to comment on Phyllis' bed partners? Did he even have time to wash up before bouncing from Rafe to Heather (or vice versa)? ... Of COURSE the Mountie was a Canadian Mountie - you're in Canada dumbass. Why not leave the search for Daisy in the hands of the RCMP (who's motto is 'we always get our man') Presumably a young woman would be a piece o' cake ... Oh yeah Jana - Chloe's the 'nasty' one (you're just the psychotic murdering one). And even though Chloe's right - Billy HAS hired a poor choice for a nanny, has Chloe forgotten that HER boyfriend's involved with (and being threatened by) the mob? ... How exactly is Jana 'on the verge' of finding Daisy's baby?... Yeah Collin - maybe you and Jill WILL catch Lily at home with the kids - IF you maybe call ahead to confirm she's home (and up to visitors) ... Preach it Doris. BUt NOW she must 'turn away'? I wasn't aware she was looking. Too bad though - I'm sure a wheelchair bound mother would elicit some sympathy from the jury. And since Doris won't spend the afternoon in court supporting the daughter she loves, I wonder if she'll visit the granddaughter she loves? ... Poor Adam - he has nothing 'solid' that will 'get Sharon off' ... Like Adam, Liv has no perrefrial (sp?) vision - as she somehow didn't see Lily return to the table ... Why haven't the Baldwin's hired Paul to find Daisy and the baby? .... Oooh - aren't the Baldwin's the evil couple. I guess Lauren and Daisy will cross paths again. 10 years ago Mike would have thrown Daisy in the trunk of his car? You mean like Phyllis did to you 10 years ago Mike - holding you hostage for days? ... Shouldn't Chloe have waited on the phone long enough to confirm how long Angelo's ASAP would be? While she's just around the corner and has nothing better to do - he might be hours away (and in the middle of something) I guess Chloe has Kevin's phone? Cause I don't imagine SHE has Angelo's number amongst her contacts. But, given Angelo's line of work, why wouldn't Kevin have been smart enough to store his number under an alias - or have him listed as the plumber or sumthin'? And since when do mobsters take orders from fashionistas? ... Yeah - having the trial fast tracked - THAT was your only 'mistake' Sharon.
