In the surveillance van, Ronan listens intently - fully expecting Abby's Mom to admit to murder. Upstairs, Abby desperately tries to shut Ashley up - I can't listen to this! To what? Tucker arrives.
Chloe's fussing over her 'brave little girl' when Kevin arrives with McGruff (the giant stuffed dog Daddy bought her). When's Daddy coming? He's far away and his phone's broken. Little 'Miss Popular' then gets a visit from Cane (also with a stuffed animal).
At home, Vikki's on the phone - requesting a memo be sent out (encouraging all NE employees to be tested for bone marrow). Hearing that Victor's not in the office, she asks Connie to have him call her. Returning from walking Keely, Sam's updated on Delia. Dropping by, Jack pets the dog. He hasn't been able to reach Billy - or Victor. And when Sam reports he's away on business, Vikki wonders where (as he didn't mention his trip to her).
Arriving at the club, Victor gets a call. Yeah - he found Billy. It's worse than he thought. Whether it's a success remains to be seen.
Back in Delia's room, Cane entertains Delia with his stuffed koala bear. Not a match, he's asked everyone at Jimmy's to be tested. After Kevin leaves, Chloe agrees it'd be a great idea for Lily to talk to Delia - and is 'humbled' by all the support.
Ending a call, Vikki informs Sam and Jack that Victor took a last minute trip overseas - guess he doesn't have any leads on Billy. Leaving to continue his search, Jack mentions what a great Mom Diane was. And he's glad Vikki has someone to keep her company. Now alone, Sam offers to feed Keely - and take care of Vikki.
Anxious to leave, Abby threatens to have Tucker charged with kidnapping (when he blocks her exit). Racing into the bedroom, Abby yanks out wires. What's she doing in there? Damage control, she calls out. Hoping she's not too late, Abby exits - leaving Tucker and Ashley baffled.
In the van, Ronan thinks they should send Abby flowers. Ashley lied to the cops about not seeing Diane; a class A misdemeanor. Popping into the van, Abby demands they pretend they didn't hear any of that.
Tucker and Ashley are left to wonder about Abby's unusual behavior (and what set her off). Hearing she was there to see HIM, Tucker wonders why.
You played me! You volunteered, Ronan and Abby bicker in the van. he needs EVIDENCE to support her theory that Tucker killed Diane. Abby begs - don't use this against my Mom. There IS a law about recording people (but it's on Ronan's side).
Entertaining Delia with magic tricks, Cane's grateful to hear some praise for a change. Chloe still doesn't approve of what he did - but for what it's worth, she appreciates him caring about Delia (and is pleased Lily's letting him see his kids). On cue, Lily arrives. Summoned by Cane, she'd LOVE to help.
Where ARE you Billy? Not in his trailer. Admiring a photo of father and daughter, Jack knows he'll hate himself for not being there for Delia. Seconds after he leaves, Victor arrives - and checking to ensure the coast is clear, waves Billy inside.
Wanting to be the one to follow up with Abby, Ashley tells Tucker how much she loves him. Oh, the obstacles in their way. Tucker won't let anything stand in the way of their happiness. And as they hug, the incriminating black and white photo peeks out from beneath mail stacked on the table.
Since the judge signed off on audio surveillance, it doesn't matter that Tucker was the target. Anything recorded is fair game. What are you gonna do with that? My Mom's not a murderer. Ronan IS a 'good guy' - and Abby can leave now - thank you. When he notices one of the mikes is missing, Abby insists she doesn't have it.
The one thing Vikki can do for Sam, is let him 'do' for her (by making grandma's chili while she goes to the hospital). Pleased that someone's taking care of HER for a change, Vikki leaves Sam to cook.
The odds aren't good, but Victor knows that Billy's the best chance Delia has right now. Rejecting 'other accommodations', Billy's sure no one will look for him at the trailer. Please Sir - he pleads for an update on Delia. Obliging, Victor makes the call.
As Chloe and Cane watch on, Lily delivers the mother of all pep talks to her 'pinky pal' - we'll be friends forever - have our own special club. When it's time for a nap, Chloe thanks Lily and Cane for coming. Delia now sleeping, Kevin comes to report he's offering free coffee to everyone who gets tested. Jack comes to admire Kevin's cool flyer. Having no luck finding Billy, Jack did bring along the photo (which Chloe does NOT want to give Delia).
On the phone with Vikki, Victor claims he hasn't been able to locate Billy - but will keep trying. Guessing it was Vikki on the phone, Billy suggests another treatment - and has many questions. Forget about Vikki - Victor makes himself clear.
Declining a drink, Ashley has another idea for celebrating her homecoming - in bed (where they find the tiny microphone - which Abby must have brought).
In the van, Abby has no idea what happened to the mike. Thanks for your help. Yeah - helping my Mom go straight to jail, she huffs out (leaving Ronan to make a call - follow Abby).
Calling Abby, Ashley insists she drop everything to meet her at CL's - NOW. She suspects that Ronan had her wear a wire - to bust Tucker. Wondering why Abby took off when he showed up, Tucker's fed up with her hurting Ashley. And as Tucker goes for a cold shower, Ashley exits - with the black and white photo.
Angry, Chloe rants that the photo - and the stupid dog are reminders (that Delia's Daddy's not around while she's going through hell). Jack and Kevin are both sure Billy would be there if he knew Delia was sick. Yeah well - THEY don't get a vote - put the photo away! As Kevin exits, Vikki arrives (and also agrees the photo's a good idea). We may never find Billy, she mopes.
If Billy's a match, how does Victor plan to keep it a secret (knowing Chloe will want to meet the donour)? He has a plan.
Ronan gives Tucker a message - Ashley's to be at his office first thing tomorrow morning. Why? Have a good night ~click~
On the CL's patio, Ashley puts the mike on the table - care to explain THAT? Speechless, her jaw flapping, Abby sprints out.
Meanwhile, inside, Lily bumps into Cane once again. Chatting about Delia, Lily's reminded of her ordeal (which Cane helped her through). Gotta go, she hurries out.
On Vikki's sofa, Sam pets the dog. The chili cooking, Sam thinks people in GC need to get their minds off their troubles.
Vikki talks about all the fun times Delia and Billy shared. Don't make Delia pay the price for Billy not being here, Jack gives Chloe the photo. Putting it beside Delia's pillow, Chloe agrees she should cherish those memories.
If Billy's a match, Victor has someone lined up to pose as the donour. What the hell!? HIM? Arriving at the trailer, Kevin's equally surprised (while Victor assures Billy that his plan will work).
Next: Collin has proved once and for all what a jerk he is, Jill tells Lauren ... Gloria! What are you doing here? she wonders. Don't let the door ...... as Gloria sashays in, Collin makes a run for the cellar door (as it closes) ... What are you doing!? Billy protests. Kevin's dialing - Chloe needs to know you're back. You need to go to the hospital to get tested - see if you're a match! Victor calmly takes Kevin's phone.
My Thoughts: Sorry. Today's commentary and photos have been preempted by soccer (which should be for the last time).
