As Billy's contemplating Vikki's email, she's ending a call when Sam comes in (to hear the sad news that Jack hasn't found Billy). It's take your landlord to work day - so it's off to the stable for a ride.
In Delia's room, Jack's stunned to hear that Kevin's a match. Unbelievable - what ARE the odds!? Too bad the lab didn't realize their mistake before Jack went looking for Billy. The tip was bogus - someone deliberately led him astray. And when Victor enters, Jack's eyes narrow in suspicion.
At CL's, Phyllis (Lucy in her arms) are to meet the nanny. Lucy calls from the pen - what the hell!? Leslie's not her lawyer anymore? No - Leslie's too busy. Phyllis will get someone else ~click~ Avery puts 'a look' on Phyllis' face - who's THIS little cutie?
A compassionate Sharon places her hand on the shoulder of a sobbing fellow inmate; you OK? Recognition is in her eyes when a teary eyed Daisy turns around.
See ya around. No wait - Daisy says they have something in common; Phyllis. Whining about how she's been screwed over, Daisy hopes Sharon can help her. Wanting nothing to do with Daisy, Sharon has enough problems of her own.
Bringing over a forgotten toy, Avery had no idea Phyllis was so loyal to family. Guess we'll get to know each other, she coos at Lucy. Don't do that to her, Phyllis doesn't want Lucy confused. Avery's the one confused - didn't Phyllis say family should be together? YOU'RE the exception, Phyllis scurries out. Nick arrives as summoned (so that Avery can apologize to him).
How wonderful that Delia's donour is a good friend, Victor marvels. If Billy knew, Kevin'd be his BFF, Chloe adds. The fellas sent into the hallway, Jack hints that Victor's the one who sent him on a wild goose chase. I'll be damned, Victor crows (as Kevin hovers) - then snipes about Jack blaming others for his brothers failings.
At the stables, Vikki gushes over Nikki's horse. These are the finest animals Sam's ever seen. Billy used to say Victor only seemed humane when with his grandkids or animals. Sam doesn't think Vikki 'pathetic' - Billy was a huge part of her life. Yeah, well, Vikki figures it's time to evict him from her brain (but her smiles turns upside down as Sam goes to fetch the saddles).
Back at the trailer, Billy disposes of the rancid milk in his fridge - then types a response to Vikki's email (she deserves better - and is better off without him. But, God, what he wouldn't give to have her back. I love you).
Victor's indignant - is Jack accusing him of not caring whether Delia lives or dies? Jack's sure Victor could justify it - sacrificing Billy's daughter to protect his own. Nonsense - Victor made every effort to find Billy - but since Kevin's a match it's no longer necessary. Delia needs her father to hold her hand. Jack WILL continue his search - and won't be distracted by Victor's anonymous tips. After Jack stomps off, Kevin worries to Victor (who assures he's helping - by keeping that SOB away from Delia). Once the blood transfusion's done, Victor's sending Billy far away. Everyone will be better off - trust me.
Seated at CL's, Avery shoulda told Nick why she wanted him to bring the kids. Nick grumbles that she manipulated Sharon into taking a big chance (by rejecting the deal). Avery knows what she'd doing. Nick suspects her apology is a 'tactic' - there's more to it than meets the eye. Phyllis appears to agree - and asserts that it has to do with HER.
As Sharon reads an article (about her rejecting the DA's deal), another inmate comes in to wonder why she rejected it. Sharon's confident that she's gonna be acquitted - not because she's pretty or rich; but because she's innocent. The other inmate throws Sharon up against the pay phone - you're no better than the rest of us!
Phyllis rants at the 'passive aggressive' Avery - who's insinuating herself into her life; chatting up her ex husband. Though both Nick and Avery deny they were talking about her, Phyllis accuses Avery of 'following her around'. Thanking Nick - and saying it's 'lovely as always' to see Phyllis, Avery leaves Phyllis to deny she went 'overboard'. She hates me - and Phyllis must draw a hard line.
Throwing the other inmate off, Sharon denies she needs protection - leave me alone. Daisy comes along to warn the aggressive inmate not to mess with Sharon (who threw someone into a volcano). And when Daisy receives a punch to the face, Sharon fusses - are you OK!?
Back in Delia's room, Chloe can't believe that Victor would try to keep Billy away. And whatever trouble Billy's in isn't Victor's fault. When asked by Kevin, Chloe's not sure she still wants Billy found. Jack's aghast - Delia's begging for her father. Chloe figures that Delia should learn that there's certain men she can rely on - like Kevin and Jack; who notices that Kevin's nervous - does he know something they don't?
Leading the horses back into the stables, Sam denies he LET Vikki win. And when she boasts of her agility and expertise, Sam jokes about her twisting her ankle while dismounting (then helps her off to 'take a look').
Billy continues to type - there's no excuse for the things he's done. Oh how he misses Vikki. Sauntering in, Victor updates that Delia's fine - then takes a seat to read Billy's email. You've broken our agreement, he scowls.
Denying Victor's presence made him nervous, Kevin just doesn't like hospitals. And after he rushes out to get some air, Chloe assumes Kevin's uncomfortable about filling the void Billy left. That void should be filled by BILLY, Jack asserts. Chloe suggests Billy's the one who sent Jack in the wrong direction (to avoid facing the mess he left behind).
Tending to Vikki's swollen ankle, Sam praises her equestrian skills (until the dismount). Admitting she's a complete dork, Vikki's helped out to the car.
When Billy denies he was gonna send the email, Victor reminds that he's not under lock and key - but if he 'rebels', his secrets will come out. And Vikki HAS moved on. There's another man in her life, Victor announces.
Ice to her eye, Daisy's thanked for sticking up for Sharon (whom she knows didn't start the fight - she wouldn't hurt anyone). And when Avery races in - squawking about moving Sharon to protective custody, Daisy jumps in to be introduced. Daisy Carter? Avery recognizes the name.
Lucy still in her arms, Phyllis joins Nick on the CL's patio. Needing the day off (because she has no nanny), Phyllis refers to herself as 'Mommy'. Avery's interest in her kids is NOT sincere. She's not 'hateful' - we used to be close, Phyllis admits. But Avery's stuck in the past - and Phyllis can't go back there. She's moved on. Nick's sorry she's gotta deal with this.
Delia's prompted to thank Uncle Jack for the gift he brought from China. Shown out, Jack's gonna try the trailer again. Praised for being a good brother, Jack thinks Billy a good father. We've just gotta bring him back.
Vikki's dating? Billy thinks her moving on is a good idea. For once, Victor and Billy are in agreement. And soon Billy's to leave town. His offer to take the laptop denied (lest Billy be tempted), Victor will be back with groceries. Now alone, Billy's back on his laptop.
As Nick and Phyllis sing to Lucy, Avery tells Sharon that the DA's plea bargain indicates he's not pleased with Heather. We've got whatever they throw at us covered. And after Sharon's taken off to file a report on the earlier incident, Daisy asks Avery to help her get her baby away from Phyllis.
Returning to Delia's room, Chloe tells Kevin that they don't NEED Billy (thanks to him). Humble, Kevin claims he's no saint. You saved Delia's life - and mine. You fixed everything, Chloe rewards him with a kiss.
At the trailer, Jack flips through the mail. What the hell are you doing here? he growls at Victor (who's claims he's there to obstruct Jack's search for Billy; who's at the North Pole - betting big money on reindeer games).
Bag of ice in hand, Sam scoops Vikki up into his arms to carry her upstairs. Arriving in time to watch through the window, Billy looks pitifully sad.
Next: NOW you're gonna testify at my trial? Sharon asks through the bars. I know what I'm doing, Victor assures .... There's nothing romantic between Sam and me, Vikki assures Chloe (who thinks 'maybe there should be') ... Phyllis comes up to Ronan in the park - arrest me. What? Excuse me? a puzzled Ronan stammers.
My Thoughts: How perceptive of Jack - but isn't it entirely plausible that Kevin would be 'nervous' at the hospital? He was once confined to a padded cell after all ... Phyllis needs a 'day off' (because she has no nanny)? She's barely at RS anyway - and wasn't she working evenings (to take care of Lucy during the day)? ... Phyllis accuses Avery of 'following her around' - but Avery was at CL's first .... Hypocrite of the day is Daisy. She calls Phyllis a sneak and a liar - then lies to Sharon - by claiming that Phyllis FIRED her lawyer. Sure, that might be the case - but reportedly Leslie's too busy. That said, if Leslie's dropping Daisy as a client, she really should have let her know she no longer had any legal representation .... Understatement of the day goes to Kevin (who rightfully says he's 'no saint') .... Kinda funny that Vikki's fondling a carrot as Sam talks about Billy being a 'huge' part of her life .... Why would Billy bother to sniff the milk in his fridge? Surely the expiry date would have been less nauseating. Nice that Victor's going for groceries - somehow I just can't see him pushing a shopping cart down the aisles ... Geez Phyllis - not everything revovles around you. Why would she assume that Avery's apology has anything to do with HER? And if Avery said she's 'too busy' for her sister (when Phyllis went to the courthouse to extend an olive branch), why would she say she'll get to know Lucy better? It's also odd that she didn't know anything about Phyllis having custody of Lucy (since she was very vocal about it in her blog) .... Where was Billy when Jack came over? And why wasn't Jack more surprised to see his and Billy's worst enemy walk right into the trailer without even knocking? How exactly is Victor coming to the trailer 'obstructing' Jack's search for Billy? ... Never mind the visitors coming and going at will, why isn't there a guard supervising the state pen's communal visiting area? Shouldn't a guard (not Daisy) have come over to ask if there's a problem? Given that inmates are violent criminals, you'd think a guard would be nearby to jump in when an inmate verbally attacked Sharon and punched Daisy (whom Sharon asked to 'go find a guard'). And since Daisy was the one assaulted, shouldn't SHE be the one considered for protective custody?
