On the CL's patio, a flirtatious (and oh so lucky) Daniel gives Lily a sweet kiss. Oops - maybe that was wrong (he knows she's not over Cane). But wait - oh yes she is.
At Jimmy's, it's clear that Cane's not over Lily. His flashback of her kissing Daniel is interrupted by Collin; the lousy father. Genevieve arrives to cheerily 'second that'. The happy family together again, she sing songs.
Arriving at the station, Paul's not been able to reach Nina (and isn't impressed that Ronan hasn't even tried). He doesn't consider that woman his mother - and doesn't owe her a damn thing.
At the mausoleum, Nina ends her call with a 'Captain' - then updates Jill and Ester that Chance is unreachable because he's on a classified assignment. Maybe it's not a dangerous mission, they suggest. Nina barks about not being able to handle all this worrying - again.
At CL's, Kevin doesn't seem all that surprised to hear that Delia had a tantrum last night. Of COURSE she misses her Dad - but Billy's out of control. Chloe hates being the bad buy - and Kevin giving her grief doesn't help (to which he marches off).
Thanking Victor for coming over, Vikki has tons of ideas for the Naked Heiress/BofN campaign. She's stunned silent, however, when Victor announces he's pulling the plug (to 'look out' for Abby and NE).
Victor IS enthused about the idea - but it's not the right time. He then confides that an intoxicated Abby was the one who tried to kill Tucker (who's not pressing charges). The problem - Abby's videotaped confession (which Diane somehow got her hands on). Understanding, Vikki talks of Genevieve's interesting ideas (but has no idea what she was 'after').
At Jimmy's, Genevieve orders Collin his 'usual' (which she of course remembers in detail). Collin asks her to hop on her broom and leave town - promising she WILL be his ex wife soon. Promises, promises - Genevieve's getting along nicely in GC. Neither Cane or Collin are impressed to hear that she BOUGHT the house (or have any desire to move back in). Cane wants to be rid of both of them. But - Collin's sure he can win Jill back (as he can with any woman). A true statement (as Genevieve's discomfort proves).
Nina, Jill and Ester commiserate about Chance - he's all we have. Philip and Billy? Jill scoffs - yeah - one fled to Australia - the other refuses to acknowledge her existence. Nina strongly encourages her to reach out to Billy.
A part of Lily will always love Cane - but unable to ever trust him, assures Daniel that she's ready to file for divorce. It's time to end the marriage.
At the counter, Chloe apologizes. Accepting her truce, Kevin didn't mean to upset her. We're out of synch, they agree. It's been one thing after another - what happened to the fun they had together? We'll get it back, Kevin assures.
Leaving Jimmy's, Genevieve wishes Collin good look with his groveling (sarcastically sure Jill will find it irresistible). Cane again declines her invitation to move in with him. Grabbing her arm, Collin wants to be invited over. Genevieve doesn't think her other overnight guests will appreciate that. As she sashays out, Collin's left to cackle.
Wow - Vikki can't get over the news about Abby. Victor asks about Genevieve. Vikki describes her as very sociable. Victor off the the gym, Vikki's left to brainstorm ideas for a new campaign, video chat with Reed - and wish Billy would get over himself and call her.
At the station to find Paul, Nina's stunned when Ronan turns around to face her.
Back at CL's, Kevin and Chloe are about to go out and have fun, when Ester arrives to update Chloe that Chance is out of contact (and doing his duty). Poor Nina. First she loses Chance - then Ronan - how much can one woman take?
You're back! Nina approaches. As she can see Ronan made a full recovery - and is capable of picking up the phone. She won't accept his lack of answers. You don't take your brother's liver then leave. We WILL discuss this. It'll be a one sided conversation, Ronan replies. But Nina's been assuring everyone that there's a good reason - and deserves to know what it is. Good Lord - Ronan's the most inhuman, unfeeling person she's ever known. And she won't keep her voice down. When Paul arrives - Nina turns on him (for not telling her in the many messages he's left). Back to Ronan - the son who's never felt more of a stranger (to Nina) than he does right now.
Still on the patio, Daniel encourages Lily to have a lawyer tell Cane. Lily doesn't want to become bitter or vindictive. Her kids in mind, she must tell Cane in person (and alone). Good luck, Daniel sends her off - be strong.
Forgive the intrusion, Genevieve shows up at Vikki's - to express condolences about her former stepmother. Vikki's been thinking about Genevieve today too - she shared her ideas with Victor. Hearing he's at the gym, Genevieve's sure they'll bump into one another at some point (it's such a small town).
With Ester, Chloe confides that things are weird between her and Kevin. She has a feeling ... At the counter, Daniel and Kevin chat (mostly about Diane's murder - which Phyllis blames Adam for). Checking his watch, Daniel's worried about Lily - but can't call - she's busy right now.
Collin about to leave Jimmy's, Cane makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with either parent. Collin will respect his wishes - but warns that loneliness gets old real quick. Seconds after he exits, Lily arrives - and wastes no time announcing she's filing for divorce.
Vikki's not alone for long - Jill arrives looking for Billy. Join the club - Vikki hasn't heard from him. Seated, Jill just wants to reach out to Billy (and gets more encouragement from Vikki). Thinking Billy needs a lifeline right now, Vikki asks that if she finds Billy, have him call her.
Victor's punching away on the heavy bag when Genevieve creeps over to watch. And with a flirtatious smile, is glad it's not HER he's picturing on that bag.
No - you guys stay, Ronan's leaving. Yeah - what you do best, Nina snarls (then is left in tears - to apologize to Paul - and gripe about Ronan being a jerk). No - Heather doesn't know he's back. With Chance off on a secret mission, Nina's got one son she may never see again - and one who never wants to see HER again. Wahhh ~hug~
Victor thinks Genevieve looks familiar. Ah yes - Collin Atkinson's ex (as reported in the newspaper). Again offering condolences, Genevieve wonders which one of his daughters mentioned her - Abby or Vikki? Vikki - and she was impressed. Genevieve has nice things to say about Vikki too. And what she'd really like is boxing lessons. Impressed with Genevieve's efforts, Victor insists she tell him who's face she's envisioning on the bag.
Arriving at the club, Collin spots (and approaches) a crying Jill. You alright?
Cane wishes she'd reconsider (the divorce)- but won't give Lily 'a hard time'. Hearing that she wants full custody too, Cane appeals for access - supervised if necessary. The twins need a father in their life. Do it for their sake, not mine.
Back on the patio, Lily updates Daniel - it went pretty well. Cane won't fight the divorce - but wants visitation. No, Lily didn't laugh in his face - he IS their father. A ROTTEN father, Daniel worries he'll use the kids to manipulate Lily. No - we're through! Lily's adamant. Meanwhile, Cane mopes over a family photo.
The hug ending, Nina knows Paul has a case to solve - she'll get through Cane's deployment (like his others). Yeah - but it'd be easier with the support of her other son. Don't call him that - Nina no longer feels he's family.
Leaving, Ester gives Chloe a few words of encouragement - it's not all hearts and flowers. Hey - Ronan joins her. Get out - you're not welcome here! After the way he treated Chloe, Kevin doesn't want Ronan's business (not even to go). Tail between his legs, Ronan exits - coffeeless. How is he back - and why?! Chloe wonders.
Seated beside Jill, Collin's updated on Chance. I can't lose him too, she weeps (leaning in as Collin to slip an arm around her shoulder). As luck would have it, Genevieve rounds the corner - to scowl at the cozy pair.
Victor back at Vikki's, both see right through Genevieve (who tracked him down where Vikki mentioned he'd be). What does she want? Victor wonders. It's Billy! Vikki answers the phone. Alas, it's the Hong Kong Airline. Seems Billy left his phone on the plane. He flew to Hong Kong? He left me, Vikki pouts to her Dad.
Next: Adam's with his brunette ONS - I need you to back me up - about the other night. You willing to do that? .... Adam's very sharp, Sharon (with Sam) tells Avery - a few too many accidental run ins and he will begin to suspect something ... I miss you, Tucker grovels. Did you miss me when you slept with Diane? Ashley snips.
My Thoughts: Line of the day goes to Vikki: Dad - if you're worried about Abby being overexposed..... What!? How can a woman known ONLY for shedding her clothes in public possibly be 'overexposed' (in make up ads no less). He left me, she later bleats (apparently forgetting she all but kicked him out weeks ago) .... Jill's necklace looks lethal - one careless fold of her arms and she'll perforate her breasts with it .... Yeah Daniel - you're real damn lucky to be with Lily; a single, unemployed mother of infant twins - what a catch .... I agree somewhat with Kevin - but - as Chloe's boyfriend, he should be supporting her decisions. If a Judge is supporting them, Chloe must have a point. Why would Kevin risk his relationship - to defend Billy, a guy who doesn't like him (and goes out of his way to insult him)? Kevin stands up for Billy - then freaks out at Ronan (because he mistreated Chloe). Didn't Billy treat Chloe just as badly (if not worse)? Obviously, the next quadrangle will be Kevin/Chloe/Ronan/Heather (wake me up when it's over) ... If Kevin can refuse Ronan service (because he wasn't nice to his girlfriend), why can't Cane refuse service to the mobster father who tried to kidnap his children (and ruined his marriage in the process)!? ... How is it possible that Vikki and Victor will have 'fewer interruptions' at her place? Being the two in charge, couldn't they secure a room at NE - and give the receptionist posted outside strict instructions to block calls and visitor access (for once)? Had Victor stayed - there's no way they'd have a private 'big block of time'. It was one visitor after another - then the call from Hong Kong ... Why would Vikki still be interested in Genevieve's 'interesting ideas'? They revolved ONLY around Abby as spokesperson ... Despite her troubles, Nina had no right to snap at Paul. If anything, he should be giving HER grief for not returning any of his numerous messages ... Right Genevieve, GC must be a 'small town' - Victor's 'date with the punching bag' couldn't be anywhere other than the GCAC? There's no other fitness club's in town? One might also assume that the millionaire might have a fully equipped state of the art home gym. ... Being a mobster's wife, you'd think she'd be a better boxer. Kudos for not looking nauseated when the sweaty Victor wrapped his arms around her ... Nice that NOW Cane doesn't want to give Lily a hard time (guess he's given her enough of those already) ... Since Ester rarely gets out in her civvies, you'd think she'd pick a blouse that fits properly. Not every second can be hearts and flowers, Ester tells Chloe (like she's qualified to give anyone relationship advice) ... I guess Victor wore himself out showing off his boxing skills to Genevieve - cause he sure had one helluva time wrestling the cap off the water bottle Vikki gives him .... Thanks to those who've taken time to let me know you like the addition of the screen caps :-)
