Assuming that Daisy searches her name, looking for press on herself, Phyllis check her 'post'; motherless child, unfortunate son (hoping Daisy responds to defend herself), Phyllis will track her Canadian IP address. Alas, there's been no comments or views from Canada. How's that possible? She reads her scathing comments - Daisy inflicted scars on innocent people (that will never heal).
Cut to Lauren - who's enjoying an evening at G-worm, with hubby, Kevin and Chloe (who, checking the RS website on her phone, covers her alarm by what she sees).
And as Phyllis narrates her post - the light Daisy somehow managed to bring to the world (the perfect Lucy) - the deliriously happy Abbott's are deliriously happy; Daniel's their hero.
As Phyllis gets to the part about Lucy's mother being on the run - and her son's love (for his child), Daniel comes knocking; what the hell did you do!? he marches in to demand.
Neil, Devon and Malcolm are having a 'concern for Lily' meeting on the patio. Sofia'll be joining them - after she checks on Lily. Hopefully she comes back with the good news; that Lily's turned a corner.
Cane? Are you here? Lily asks the empty living room. But when it's Sofia who arrives, Lily guesses she's there on behalf of the list of worried people she rhymes off (whom Sofia's to convince that she's just fine).
In the dark of the park, Collin thinks Caleb's time here is almost up - Neil's concern for Lily will push her into a bottomless pit. He's not even her real father. Why Collin has more of a claim to those kids. He'll send Neil a Christmas postcard (once the twins are in Australia) - show him what a real family looks like. OK - if Caleb can't kill Lily, can her keep her; as a little pet?). They can give the twins a sibling. Sure - after Collin gets the twins.
The Abbott's continue to gush over the sleeping Lucy. Arriving, Rafe opens with 'what the hell were you thinking'? Huh - Lucy's here? Daniel too? It's really that simple? The Abbott's then have a 'huh'? moment. Broke the gag order? Well, they might wanna check out Phyllis' latest blog.
Daniel gesturing angrily at Phyllis laptop, she explains her plan to track down Daisy (so SHE can get custody). You printed this kid's face online!? Daniel's livid. Phyllis is buying time - for YOU. Yes - Daniel WILL one day realize his baby is his world. Daniel held Lucy - heard her first cry - if he didn't fall in love with her then, he never will! Phyllis is stunned (and angry that Daniel's been lying to her). No - I didn't get to raise you!! Lying - sneaking behind my back - gave your baby to two people who don't deserve her!! Daniel sneers at her plan (to trick Daisy into giving her custody). Daniel's sure that Phyllis will NOT find Daisy - Lucy will stay with the Abbott's - and EVERYONE is gonna pissed about Phyllis' blog. And just think - you did it all for a kid who doesn't need or want you, Daniel slams out.
Back on the patio, Neil tattles that Collin heard Lily talking - to an empty room. And she stopped therapy. Sofia arrives to say Lily couldn't get her out of there fast enough - when did it get this bad? If they can figure out when Lily started to pull away, perhaps they can bring her back to the living.
Lily IS with the living - in her living room. She just wants everyone gone - so she can be with 'Cane' ~hug~ That smell of pine? It's heaven baby. Yeah, well, Lily would like some heavenly penis; make love to meeee.
At the bar, Chloe knows Lauren's gonna freak - and Kevin can't believe Phyllis turned his niece into Daisy-bait. But text messages (to Kevin and Jeff) bring on a new crisis. Angelo's coming to say 'good bye'!? No sooner is her name mentioned, Gloria pops up - something juicy I hope. Not letting Jeff bail, Kevin orders him to 'tell her!' (it's her restaurant that's about to get torched). Snookums - you DID like the movie Godfather, right? Jeff begins.
Meanwhile, Lauren's not nearly as cheerful as she was before (tearfully blaming Daisy for Jana's death). Is she worried Daisy will come back - to see Lucy? Lauren's not sure what she's feeling. Assuring that she's not falling apart, Lauren suddenly runs out to get the popsicle sticks Fen needs for an art project. Following, Mike's sure he's got something to do too.
When Daniel arrives at Vikki's, she immediately sees he's not fine - read your Mom's blog huh? She's sorry they put the generous Daniel in the middle of all this. Daniel thinks his Mom a 'brat'. Vikki valiantly defends Phyllis (for protecting her son). She'd cut me out to get a new daughter, Daniel's sure.
A knock at the penthouse door is NOT Daniel (as Phyllis had hoped). She doesn't need to hear Billy's words (she already heard it all from Daniel). She's had it with Billy's greed and entitlement. Great parents? Ha! JT has custody of Reed - and Delia's with Chloe. Ignoring the insults, a calm Billy has one thing to say - you're fired.
Phyllis can't be fired - she built that magazine. I own it sweetheart, Billy reminds his ex employee. Great - you stole my son - his daughter - and now my job - for no reason (other than wanting to be a Dad). Phyllis didn't know about any gag order. Now angry, Billy doesn't have to tell Phyllis anything - your job is... WAS... to run content by me. No way in hell he'd put his daughter's face out there for the world to see. Billy loves his wife and baby - stay away from my house, my office - and stay the hell away from my child.
'L'il Momma's' not about to let anyone slip away - not Tucker or Lily. And how's little Devon doin' in there? Ha ha. It could be a girl. Sofia was gonna show Lily her sonogram photo - but their 'girl talk' didn't pan out. Devon could be a girls' name too, Devon claims to be secure enough in his masculinity to be OK with that. As for middle name's, Malcolm's thinking Neil (while Sofia was thinkin' Tucker or Ethan). Neil rejoins them - followed by Collin. Family gathering? Bet Lily wishes she was here. Frowning at him, Neil stirs his coffee.
Lily doesn't want to waste time on food. How can Cane be sure they have all the time in the world? Please make love to me, she pleads. Every second away from Lily is hell - you want me? I do ~kiss~
Back at G-worm, Kevin leaves Gloria to blast Jeff (for turning her establishment into a bookie joint). It was a business investment, Jeff insists. What they need to do is close up shop and lay low - in Norway.
At a nearby table, Chloe reminds that Angelo would never hurt a woman - lemme deal with him. Oh yeah - Kevin'd be real proud of himself then. Would Kev rather be proud - or alive? Angelo saying 'good bye' is really bad. Kevin imagines an old time gangster scene (complete with his doll face gun moll). You don't need to see this, he snaps out of it - vowing to put an end to this. All look nervous as Angelo arrives.
Following Neil into CL's, Collin knows he's viewed as an outsider. Praising Neil's parenting skills, he wishes Lily the best (which is Neil). And when Neil confides that they're taking action to help Lily tonight, Collin's appreciates it - and knows they'll do what needs to be done. Have a good evening, Neil exits.
~kiss~ Close your eyes - it feels like Paris, Lily kisses Caleb. It's not Paris - and we're not safe here, Caleb thinks they need to leave town - so no one can come between them. Initially, Lily goes along - we can be free; together. Yes - just us baby. But no, Lily can't take the twins away from everyone they love. It makes no sense. Maybe this isn't real - her crazy mind is telling her to run away. Shhh - doesn't this feel real? Caleb will leave her to get some rest. Yeah - you should go, Lily's cooled off. Dream about me - what our life could be like if we were back together, Caleb leaves her confused.
An anguished Lily talks aloud to her Mom - trying to sort it all out. Maybe se SHOULD leave - so people won't know she's losing her mind. She looks even more disturbed when someone knocks at the door. Lily - it's Dad.
A nervous Chloe, Glo and Jeff cower behind the bar - watching. Finishing his meal, Angelo approaches Kevin. It's all over but the cryin' - he has no other choice (with the cops sniffin' around). Kevin catch! Chloe tosses a knife (which does nothing but prove she throws like a girl). Don't hurt him! she wails at Angelo. Huh? You thought I was gonna... ? Angelo's finger and thumb form a gun. You crazy kid - with a belly laugh, he gives Kevin a noogie. Get outta here - ha ha. Angelo's closin' up shop til the heat dies down. Yeah - Kevin's fired - but if he's ever in Boise ... a relieved Kevin lunges to hug the big galoot. As for Jeff, he's about to get his - Angelo grabs Gloria and plants a kiss that leaves her seeing stars. Live up to THAT ya snitch, he sneers at Jeff. Chloe runs to kiss Kevin - and all's well that ends well.
Mike drops by the Abbott home - yes, Lauren read Phyllis' blog. And so begins 'the people Mom ticked off today' convention, Daniel quips. What the hell's wrong with Mike's 'friend' anyway? He hasn't seen her. Oh, but Billy has - to fire her. Unfortunately, the blog will be out there forever - for Daisy to see. is Lauren afraid it'll bring her back. A dejected Mike doesn't know how Lauren feels (she doesn't even know herself). He's afraid all the progress she's made is gone.
Please let me explain, Phyllis stammers - as Lauren marches into the penthouse. She's NOT trying to lure Daisy back - she's trying to track her down. Done flapping her gums, Phyllis' jaw now hangs open - slack (shocked because Lauren's 'glad' Phyllis called Daisy out). She refuses to be afraid of that bitch ever again!
Back at G-worm, Glo's not 'past all that' - where's MY cut of the take Loverman? Watching from their table, Kevin and Chloe are delighted to be crisis free (except for Phyllis blog - Lucy's custody - and Kev's whacko sister on the loose). Who knew Angelo would be the least of their problems?
Phyllis' voice narrates (her blog) - Daisy or Daniel? Nature or nurture? That's what Lucy's future comes down to. Phyllis loves to see her confident pal back - she swears not to bring Daisy back. You're kidding yourself, Lauren knows she'll come back - to try ruin their lives. What does Phyllis want of her? Custody. OK - then Phyllis better pray she gets to Daisy before Lauren does (cause once she gets her, Daisy won't be able to do anything - for anybody).
The Abbott's bid Daniel good night and head to bed - as Phyllis voice narrates; Daisy incites rage and disgust. Daniel's clever, artistic, loving, protective. Phyllis is lucky to have him for a son - Lucy's luckier to have him for a father. Me? I vote for nurture - Lucy will grow to be a kind young woman - because she has Daniel in her life (and never know the despicable creature who's one kind act was to give her away). Lucky, lucky Lucy. Reading on a laptop, a tear rolls down Daisy's face.
At the park again, someone's spying - as Collin rants about the smug Winter's guy - he's sumthin' else. His care/concern will push Lily right over the edge. Then - they've got a clear shot at those kids.
Determined to take things nice and slow, Neil gently tells Lily that she's not acting like herself. You need to go, Lily snaps - then falls apart. Go! take the twins. Keep them safe. I'm losing my mind. OK? Please!
Feeling unappreciated son? Collin chuckles - you'll get your due son. After Collin leaves, a woman (shrouded in darkness and dark clothing) emerges. I hate that SOB, Caleb sneers.
Next: So - we're gonna do this? Together? Adam asks Nick ... Nikki shares her suspicions with - have you ever considered the possibility that Abby was driving the night Tucker was hit? ... Lily slaps Caleb's hands away. No! Don't touch me!
My Thoughts: Phyllis specifically tells Daniel that she's trying to get Daisy to 'come back' - but later, swears to Lauren that's wasn't her intent .. Make up your mind Phyllis. One minute it's for ME - the next she's doing it for Daniel (who, by the way, acted brilliantly today). Note that she's never (that I can recall) said she's doing it for Lucy). .... Duh - if Lily wants to spend time with 'Cane' - and not get caught, she might wanna change out those big glass patio doors - or put some curtains up .... Cane smells like pine? What's he supposed to smell like? Formaldehyde? Funeral flowers? .... I'm not sure I'd put watching the babies sleep BEFORE making love (considering how long Lily's gone without) ... If Vikki doesn't want Lucy woken up (with the constant stream of visitors) why is she napping in the living room? .... I'll walk you out, Mike says. Walk? It was more like a mad dash - his little legs propelling him behind Lauren. Cause L'il Fen really, really needs those popsicle sticks. It can't possibly wait til tomorrow? Guess the Baldwin's took separate cars - weren't they both drinking straight Scotch earlier? Two impaired drivers out on the road. How do ya like THAT MADD? ... Sure seems easy for folks to access the penthouse? No buzzer downstairs - or concierge to call up to announce visitors? Without so much as a peephole in her front door, where's all the security boasted about (when Phyllis was convincing Lauren that it was safe to have Lucy there)? ... NOW Phyllis is fired? I'd have assumed their working relationship would be more than strained - even before last week's big blow out. Knowing that Phyllis has access to the RS website from home, let's hope Billy was smart enough to change all passwords (and implement other safeguards) BEFORE coming to fire Phyllis. With everyone in town already aware of the article, why hasn't the courts come to discuss Billy breeching the gag order? ... Huh? Phyllis can't be fired? Then why did she need Billy to hire her? Why didn't she just waltz in and choose a desk? I don't like how Billy called her sweetheart - chauvinistic and demeaning - but I guess he has reason. Phyllis thinks she was fired for no cause? ... Phyllis was supposed to run all uploaded content past Billy? She's never done that (certainly not when skewering every female in town) .. Huh? the blog's 'out there forever'? Billy's never heard of the 'select' all and delete button? (Only those who bothered to save the article - or were really determined to find it could do so).
