An agitated Abby meets Victor at G-worm. After a sleepless night 'hating' herself - she really needs help with her 'screw up'. Thanks to her, the cops might suspect her Mom of murder.
At the station, Ronan listens to the recording - then leaves yet another message for Ashley. Wanting her at the station, he wonders if she needs help with transportation.
Ashley returns to Tucker. Frustrated that she can't find Abby, both wonder why she ran off. Asking if his name came up (in the recorded conversation), Tucker might need a lawyer. Saying they don't need attorney's (and ignoring the ringing phone), Ashley leaves to deal with this face to face.
Gloria's banging on the door does nothing but hurt Collin's head. Annoyed that she's got no phone reception, Glo's sure Jill's not coming to rescue him.
At the club, Jill rereads 'G's' taunting note (which is then rips up and burns). Collin - you are a rotten son of a bitch, she hisses, martini in one hand - flaming note in the other.
Hearing that Daddy was wearing a hood, Chloe knows Delia was having a dream.
Meanwhile, Kevin delivers Billy's laptop - and the news that Delia saw him last night (in a presumed dream). If Billy's gonna keep up this cloak and dagger, he can't go see Delia again.
When Billy assures he won't see Delia again, Kevin wonder's why he's so rational. Oh no - Billy's far from rational. He's just a guy stuck in a trailer (who misses his kid).
Chloe reads Bumpy The Camel to Delia (who's head hurts). Going out for juice, Chloe leaves Delia sucking her finger and stroking her stuffed koala.
Perched primly in a chair, Ashley listens to the recording. Ronan wonders why Abby cut her off - and what 'came back to haunt' her. He carries on about Ashley blowing everyone's alibi to pieces - and interrogates her about her call to Nick. When Ashley remains silent, Ronan puts the bagged rock in her hands. Show me how you hit Diane in the head with this rock - until she was dead.
Abby explains wanting Tucker to incriminate himself (right out of Ashley's life) - Ashley incriminating herself. She knows Ashley didn't kill Diane - it was Tucker. Hearing how Abby bolted (when Ashley found the wire), Victor thinks her obsession with Tucker is clouding her judgment - and stop confiding outside the family. Victor instructs Abby to apologize to Ashley and stay away from Ronan. He'll take care of the rest.
Over wine, Gloria suggests that Genevieve's trying to protect Collin from the man hungry Jill (why are men are so blind to her anyway?). Gloria admits that Jeff left for Vegas mad at her. After more chit chat about who might care enough to look for them, Collin goes to select another bottle. Jaws drop when the wall comes down - to reveal a hidden craps table.
Inviting Tucker to join her, Jill wastes no time confiding that Collin ran off with his ex. Tucker's sorry bout that. Remembering that he's the only one at her engagement brunch who didn't warn her, Jill knows Kay's gonna have a field day with this. Neither having anything nice to say about the meddling, busybody-harpy, Jill tattles that Kay's poaching his musical division (by hiring Devon!)
Joining the 'twitchy' Abby at G-worm, Devon gets an earful - as Abby rants about Tucker the ass - and that her Mom might never forgive her (for getting her in trouble).
At the station, Ashley still hasn't uttered a word - as she hands the rock back. Did her body twitch? Did she whimper? Ashley finally speaks - Diane was alive when she left her. Yeah they argued. Ronan knows Diane slept with Ashley's husband. You don't have anything on me, Ashley orders him to call her attorney if he wants anything else. Ronan plays the Kyle card - he must be wondering if it's someone he knows - someone he loves? Good bye detective, Ashley leaves Ronan to order a tail (just like her daughter).
Kevin relays that Chloe's been saying Billy's out of town, his phone broken - NOT that her Daddy doesn't love her. You might be the one to save her. No - it's YOU who's being tested, Billy points out. Kevin doesn't like the deception - but if he's playing his part, Billy must too. What does Victor have on him anyway????
What brings Victor by the station? Mentioning Ronan's unusual exit from town, Victor WILL find out his secrets (if he continues to bother Abby). Everyone has secrets - and don't you forget it. Leaving, Victor gets a call - Kevin's lab results are in.
Inspired by the hidden craps table, Gloria and Jeff search for a trap door. They find one beneath the carpet - but are disappointed that it's been bricked over.
The doctor assures that Delia's fever isn't a big deal. With all the people being tested - and some results still to come, Chloe's to remain positive. Leaving a 'call me' message for Kevin, Chloe gets a call from Ronan (who's offer to leave work and come over is declined).
Victor's got nothing on me, Billy claims. Eventually planning to leave town again, he won't put Vikki and Delia through this again. As Kevin starts in again, Billy's actually glad when Victor arrives - with an envelope. Billy's a donour match - but Kevin's to go tell Chloe that HE'S a match.
Now seated at G-worm, Devon tells Abby that he's meeting a new artist. Kay really trusts his judgment. Abby assumes Neil must be stoked. Not exactly. And when Devon's musician arrives, he goes to shake his hand.
Back at the club, Tucker scoffs - what the hell does Kay know about music. She latched onto Devon to flip him off. Or she sees something Tucker didn't have the time to nurture. Thinking it was a mistake to mention it, Jill hopes he won't mention her name (when he blasts Kay). Tucker won't - but thinks Devon should know what he's getting himself into.
I thought I told you not to come (Ronan doesn't exactly get a warm welcome from Chloe). Does it LOOK like she found a match? She still blames herself (being with HIM). It's not your fault, Ronan hugs a weepy Chloe. When Delia awakens, Ronan goes to fetch Chloe something to eat - leaving her to tell Delia how lucky they are to have such good friends. Outside, the door - a panicked Kevin gulps as he looks in.
In some alley, a nervous Ashley rips up the black and white surveillance photos and puts them in a dumpster.
Returning with coffee and food, Ronan gets another frosty greeting. Chloe has plenty of help - you're off the hook. Taking the cardboard tray, Kevin's got it covered. In Delia's room, Kevin's not impressed that Chloe called Ronan. He called me - after I couldn't reach YOU, Chloe doesn't want him to get all indignant. And why didn't he answer his phone?
You're a match - Delia will be OK, Victor assures Billy. He knows Delia will always mean the most to him. Yes, Victor did this for HIS daughter as much as for Delia. Now that they understand each other, Billy should know what needs to happen next.
As Collin works on the door, Gloria grumbles about her nail file being ruined (and looks forward to a bubble bath and food). The file now stuck in the lock, both are excited when a bag of food is shoved through a hole in the door. Collin offers to triple whatever Genevieve's paying whomever's out there. Tuna! (which Gen knows Collin hates). Bon appetite, guess he'll stick to the wine.
Meanwhile, still at the club, Jill's puzzled by a bottle of the same brand of wine served to her. It's not from the club's cellar? No note?
After Devon's new artist leaves, Tucker joins him. Forget about the great musician who just left - Tucker's there to talk about Devon.
The cop assigned to follow Ashley hands over what she put in the dumpster. Latex gloves on, Ronan puts the pieces together - to reveal a picture of Ashley tussling with Diane at the park.
Returning home, Ashley finds Abby waiting for her. Is she there to apologize - or to finish the job?
And while Kevin tells Chloe that he's a match, Victor's telling Billy that he'll need to stick around (and in hiding) for a few weeks. It's best for Vikki - and Delia. Leaving, Victor suggests Billy consider himself lucky - his pathetic existence isn't totally without reason.
Next: You stupid little girl - do you have ANY idea what you've done!? Tucker shouts at Abby (as Ashley bows her head) ... Billy's also shouting (at Victor). Know what I should do?! I should walk right past you - go to the hospital and sit with my daughter! .... Kevin's outside Delia's room - Victoria - there's something you should know.
My Thoughts: Hey - there's someone out there! What was your first clue Collin? The can of tuna that almost hit you in the head? ... The new artist Devon's so excited about better be one hell of a musician - cause his appearance doesn't exactly scream 'x-factor' ... Odd that Abby's sitting in complete darkness - when behind her, it's broad daylight .... Tucker really feels KAY'S the one who feels the need to 'punish'? Didn't he seek HER out with the sole purpose of stealing her company (as punishment) ... How does Tucker figure he'll have Jabot back in his 'stable' soon? ... Having ordered Ronan to call her attorney (if he wants to talk to her) shouldn't Ashley hire one (or update her existing one in on what she's suspected of at least)? .... How could Tucker even SEE Jill - wearing his Stevie Wonder sunglasses into the dimly lit GCAC? ... Yeah Gloria - you're really onto sumthin' (that Genevieve's protecting Collin from the man hungry Jill). Guess she's forgotten that Collin's a big bad Aussie mob king pin .... Silly Ronan - Kyle's not 'torn up' - losing sleep wondering whether someone he loved killed his Mom - he's having fun on sleepovers .... Funny that Victor thinks ABBY'S obsession (with getting Tucker out of Ashley's life) is clouding HER judgment (when he's equally, if not more obsessed with keeping Billy out of Vikki's life) ... If Ronan's so curious about the call Ashley made to Nick, why doesn't he question Nick? Why would they be discussing 'disposing of a body'? Diane's body wasn't 'disposed' of - it was dumped in the river ... Nice to see that Billy IS being 'rational' - not wanting Delia confused that she's seeing Daddy in her dreams (when she's obviously not). Too bad Cane wasn't as rational (having no qualms about causing Lily to question her sanity when he posed as a ghost) ... Given the club's history with fires, you'd think someone on staff would object to Jill burning notes at her table. Will she douse it with her martini if it gets out of hand? ... Having admitted that she didn't sleep last night - and drinking wine, let's hope Abby's not driving her car around town ... Why does Gloria look so excited? It's a craps table - not a BED ... How could Chloe have make up all over her face? She hasn't worn any in days ... Victor really trusts Billy to stay in the trailer? He's too cheap to hire a coupla guards to watch for him to escape? Does Billy even have any food in the house? Since he was gone for weeks, I'm sure anything in the fridge has expired ... Oh yeah - I'm sure Ashley has a problem with 'transportation' (like she doesn't have cash for gas) .... With Abby's photo displayed amongst the rest of the suspects (with 'no alibi' noted above it) why would Ronan her to wear a wire? Doesn't Abby's obsession to pin Diane's murder on Tucker make him the least bit suspicious? ... Assuming it's Ronan, neither Tucker nor Ashley bother to check who's calling (kinda careless - with Ashley's niece battling leukemia in the hospital) ... What's the point of Kevin giving Billy his laptop back? If he's in hiding, it's not like he's gonna log on to play online poker, place bets, answer email or update his facebook status .... Have a great weekend dear readers.
