Quickly ushered into the trailer, Cane scolds Billy - why is he hiding from the people who love him?
Sorry for calling Mike over 'so early', the 'overwrought' Vikki's made a 'crucial' decision - to end her marriage to Billy. But - how do you divorce a man when you have no idea where he is?
Upset that Jill blabbed to Tucker, Kay ignores her protests. Get out, she's as forceful as a woman can be (who's just woken up from a coma).
Meanwhile, in the waiting area, Neil's stunned: Tucker is Devon's father? BIOLOGICAL, Sophia clarifies (Tucker only just found out). Neil KNOWS Devon's HIS son - his only worry is what this'll do to his boy.
At Lily's, Tucker requests privacy. Phffft - Devon's with 'family' right now - call ya later. Tucker insists - and after Lily leaves the room, assures Devon - we DO have something to talk about.
Back at the trailer, Billy doesn't take kindly to a guilt trip from a man who let people weep over his casket. Does Cane REALLY wanna play 'who's a bigger jerk'? Go play loving son to Jill and leave me alone, Billy stops Cane from calling. Alright - maybe Cane will just put a big 'Billy's here' sign on the trailer.
The monitor beeping, Jill frantically tries to calm Kay down - as Murphy and the doctor arrive. When Kay demands Jill leave, Murphy ushers her out - leaving Kay to shout at the doctor - everything's falling apart!
When Neil finds it hard to believe that Tucker hired and fired Devon - without connecting him to Yolanda, Sophia explains that he just heard it from Jill (who then joins them with Murphy - to explain that Tucker overheard her talking to Mitchell). Kay's part of this - she has the answers, Neil ignores all - as he marches to Kay's room.
Brought to Tucker's place, Devon declines a drink - tell me what's going on. Yeah - we're the same blood type - so what? And when Devon sings Kay's praises, Tucker claims she's a vicious manipulator - playing God with both their lives.
Knowing Billy won't walk through the door, Vikki can't continue to hope every time it opens. Yes, there's love - but Vikki can't live in limbo. As a friend, Mike agrees to do it (and names the special filing when the spouse can't be located). Paperwork will be done - a notice published. Vikki'd like it today - this needs to be the beginning of the end.
Billy finds the irony amusing - his faux brother (and fake corpse) wants the truth. Thinking out loud, Cane puts it all (or most of it) together. Billy's the donor, not Kevin.
When babysitter Malcolm arrives, wondering how she got Charlie down, Lily flashes back (but fails to mention) Cane coming over. And as she's getting her bag, Malcolm lets Sophia in. Is the baby OK? (it's clear something's wrong).
Her blood pressure now under control, Kay would like the doctor to undo what 'that woman' just did to her (but instead is scolded and told to calm down). Kay won't die before she wrings Jill's neck. As the doctor leaves, Kay offers thanks and apologies. Next comes Neil - who sadly shakes his head when Kay confirms - 'it's true'.
Angry that Tucker's trashing his hospitalized mother, Devon's heading out the door when told he's Tucker's son. The look of disbelief on his face says it all.
Back at Lily's, Sophia assures Malcolm - the baby's fine - it's just work. Joining them, Lily informs that Tucker was just there - and is talking to Devon. As Malcolm excuses himself to take a call, Sophia tells Lily that Neil's gonna need someone to lean on - he got some news.
'Big mouth' Jill defends herself against Murphy (who insists Jill she the hospital). Kay created this whole damn mess herself! Jill rants.
After Kay explains how she learned that Devon is Tucker's son, Neil expresses his dismay and disappointment. He thinks you believe in him - as a business partner - you used a music label as bait. Without telling Neil, Kay played with Devon's career, his life, like it's a game. No - it's not a game. No - it's war - and my son is being used as a trophy. Tears in her eyes, Kay defends and rationalizes - Neil MUST know how fond she is of him and Devon. With a shake of his head, a disgusted Neil exits without looking at the weepy Kay.
Is this a joke? Convenient that Tucker 'just found out' - while Kay's in a coma. Tucker knew he had a son. Instead of telling them (who deserved to know), Kay punished him - by keeping his son. Stop it - it's not me! Devon then realizes Tucker didn't even know Yolanda's name. This is ridiculous! If Devon showed Tucker a photo of 5 women, would he be able to point out his mother!? Tucker can't fix the past - but we can work on 'this'. Stay away from me, Devon snarls.
Billy and Cane continue to go at it. No, Vikki doesn't (and can't) know. Hearing that Victor's involved, Cane points out that there's no lock on the door. Billy stammers - there was a girl - I did some things - mistakes were made. These 'things' can't touch Billy's little girl. No one can know he's here - keep your mouth shut (for Delia; the kid Cane fought for even though she wasn't his).
As Malcolm eavesdrops, Sophia can only tell a puzzled (and worried) Lily that Neil's a good, strong, brave man (who will need her love and support). Don't call him now - but check in on him for me. Sending Lily off to work out, Malcolm wants to talk to Sophia alright - not about getting back together - but about her lying.
Devon jabs his finger - don't even think about trying to play Daddy. One night with a girl (who's name he can't remember) doesn't make Tucker ANYTHING to Devon! You're the guy who fired my ass - that's ALL! And when Neil calls (needing to see him), Devon tells his DAD that he can't get outta there fast enough - see you at CL's. Understanding that Devon needs time, Tucker hopes to meet later - in the middle. You and me are done - stay the hell away from me! Devon slams out.
Billy assumes Cane will play the noble brother (despite not being his brother - or noble). Off to see Lily, Cane will keep the secret - for Delia's sake. Everybody loves and misses you - Jill - Vikki, Cane blurts out at the door. You don't know how 'my people' think, Billy snarls. Once the transplant is done, Billy WILL see his daughter - Jill - and his wife.
Mike returns to Vikki's with paperwork - we don't have to do this now. Yes, we do, Vikki insists.
Malcolm's pissed. Sophia SAID she was upset about work - but it's about Neil (who, she's very good at keeping secrets for). They've got the rings - the vows - Sophia keeps saying they belong together - but she's lying to herself and to Malcolm (who just heard her go on about what Neil needs). Whoever's the baby-Daddy, you're in love with my brother! Don't say that, Sophia snaps - and don't tell Neil.
Meeting Neil on the patio, a hostile Devon asks if he knew. As SOON as Neil got the info he called. Taking a seat, Devon still can't believe it. There's NO way. An unsigned note is NOT proof. Yeah, but - Neil informs that Kay hired Paul - so, it's safe to assume that Tucker's his biological father. It then dawns on Devon that Kay has been playing God after all. As 'pissed' as Neil is, Devon is his only concern. Forget the anger - you have a new family. Oh no I don't, Devon scowls.
Joining Jill at the GCAC's bar, Cane's glad to hear that Kay's awake. But there's 'damage' all right - she detests me. I have no mother, Jill's pity party goes all the way back to Philip faking his death - and then there's Billy. There's probably something Cane should tell her .....
Finally giving into temptation, Billy calls Vikki. Hmm - no caller ID (Vikki's sitting beside Mike). Hello? Billy places his hand over the phone ~click~ Concluding it's a wrong number, Vikki changes her mind on signing the papers - I'm not ready for my marriage to end.
What about Billy? Jill persists. And as Lily pauses to listen, Cane says that even though he let her grieve his 'death', he loves her - and so does Billy (wherever he is). He'll come back - he loves you ~hug~ Nosey Lily looks touched (in the head).
Standing, Devon doesn't care what Tucker did backstage - or in a sleazy motel. He met his real father when he was 16. Neil is the only father Devon will ever want. A tear rolls down his face as Neil comes to hug him.
Murphy scolds Kay for scaring the pants off him. Close your beautiful eyes- forget about Tucker - it'll be fine. But after Murphy goes for water, Kay opens her beautiful eyes - when Tucker slams in (breathing hard and glaring hatred).
Next: I'm so sorry, Sophia's on Lily's couch. You and me both, Malcolm's out the door ....Phyllis tells Nick - I have out next story - Malcolm just told me .... Kay looks devastated by Tucker's harsh words; Devon is a weapon to you - it's obvious to me - it's sure as hell obvious to him.
My Thoughts: I actually enjoyed today's show - great acting by Bryton (Devon) .... Maybe Kay shoulda asked the Dr House's advice before ripping the air tube out of her nose.... Yeah Cane - you COULD make a big sign that says 'Billy's here' - but it'd be easier to just Tweet the news (or have a plane fly a Billy's here banner over town) .... Vikki's still harping on yesterday's dream? I can barely remember mine - never mind making life altering decisions based on em ... Divorce is hard - says Mike - the only man in GC who doesn't know first hand (cause HIS spouse seems to be 'ex parte' too) .... LOL @ Murphy gently shaking Jill around by her arm - who does he think he is? Jack? ... Um Jill - if the conversation between you and Mitchell was private, maybe you shoulda HELD it in private (instead of a busy hospital hallway) ... Newsflash Sophia - you and Malcolm don't HAVE history - you ARE history .... If Devon feels he and Tucker don't have a 'damn thing' to talk about - why'd he follow Tucker to his place? ... Assuming Lily's house is quite large, surely she coulda given Tucker and Devon some privacy (and since she's always listening in on conversations, done so over the handy baby monitor) .... It's 'too early' in the morning for business, Malcolm sounds like he knows what he's talking about - for a guy who doesn't actually DO any business. And how early IS it? Everyone's awake, dressed - out and about town already (in fact Jill's nicely dressed for dinner) ... Yeah - it's not a DNA test, Neil concedes - but it IS the conclusion of the brilliant Paul Williams - so that's good enough proof right there .... Tucker had 'nothing to go on' (to find his son)? Huh? He had Yolanda's letter for decades - Paul had it for a coupla weeks (and managed to solve he mystery) ... Speaking of mysteries - Billy did some things - there was a girl - mistakes were made? At the very least, he cheated on Vikki (was it rape? how young WAS the 'girl')? But why does Billy need to wait for the bone marrow transplant before breaking his deal with Victor? Would the Black Knight really prevent a procedure that would save Delia's life? .... Why would Murphy have to leave Kay's room to get water? Don't all hospital rooms have a sink? ... Nobody noticed Tucker marching through the hospital looking like a biker who's hog's been stolen? And how did he slam the door? hospital doors are designed to open and close slowly and quietly. Trying to slam one would be as frustrating as trying to slam a self-closing kitchen drawer .... Is Mike oncall 24/7 for every Newman? It's bad enough that he jumps through flaming hoops for Victor - but Vikki's 'business' could easily have been handled over the phone. And if she wanted a meeting, she shoulda scheduled one with Mike's rarely mentioned (and grossly underworked) secretary Chantal ... 'It's a lot to take in', Sophia tells Neil (and not for the first time I bet ;-)
