At G-worm, Jack badgers Ashley - when will Tucker finalize the deal that puts Jabot back in HIS hands? What's this about entertaining offers? Ashley reassures - Tucker's been busy 24/7 - but IS a man of his word. Jack will wait for the proof on THAT.
Tucker is indeed working hard - on the phone - discussing a new offer he received for Jabot (big bucks - way more than Jack agreed to pay).
There's been a wrinkle in the plan - it changes nothing. Eavesdropping on Collin's conversation, Cane concludes that he still plans to kill Gloria and his mother. Ronan's watching the mansion through binoculars - we've got it covered - both women are safe. Collin's still at the club - with Jill (much to Cane's chagrin).
Having overheard Collin's call, seductress Jill (in her negligee and satin robe) entices him into joining her for a bath. Sending him ahead, she lingers to make a call - you still deliver? There's an extra hundred if it arrives in 15 minutes. Yes, she knows exactly what she wants to order....
In the van, Ronan updates Cane - Gloria will be at the bank (and out of the line of fire) for a while - Genevieve's another story. Meanwhile, inside the mansion, Genevieve gets a call from Lily (who'll be there soon).
Following Ashley back to Tucker's, Jack's there for a signature. Ashley thinks him crazy for thinking Tucker would back out. What!? both Abbott's sputter in unison (when Tucker announces he received another/higher offer). Impossible - who'd offer triple what Jabot's worth!? An anonymous offer? Kay? We have a CONTRACT! Jack reminds Tucker of his legally binding promise. He HAS proof! Ashley - but is Tucker really gonna put her in the middle of this?!
Back in the van, Cane's getting impatient - doesn't feel right. When calling to check on Lily, he's alarmed that she's going to his mother's house (for answers). Stay put - Cane's coming over. Tell her anything you want, Ronan says - except the truth.
Have fun, the delivery boy hands Jill a large, brown paper bag. What's going on? Collin comes out to wonder.
What's in the bag? A surprise - yes, for Collin. Laughing, Jill pulls out and dangles fur-lined handcuffs - and gives him a passionate kiss.
Lily!? Cane knocks on the door. When she finally opens the door, Lily gives him a frosty welcome. He's not going anywhere near the twins until he fesses up (what's going on between him and Collin). Be honest, she challenges. Soon, Cane promises - stay away from Genevieve. Cane's 'bound' - he can't say more. He knows things - his mother's house isn't safe. I've already said too much - trust me. Last time Lily trusted Cane, she almost lost her children. Cane grabs her arm - I need you to leave this alone.
You really think ashley will take YOUR side against me? Tucker scoffs. You'd really ask her to choose? Jack counters. And after Ashley reminds Tucker of his agreement, he sticks by his word - handing over the signed contract. Jack's deliriously happy - after all this time - Jabot's back in the Abbott family. Hugging, both Ashley and Jack are near tears.
Now alone, Ashley hands Tucker a glass of bubbly. You did the right thing, she praises. The old Tucker would have taken the bigger offer. He sees how important John's legacy is - and doesn't want Mccall to be the only thing he leaves his son.
Jack drops by Genevieve's - to share his good news with her. Briefly puzzling over the anonymous bidder, Jack gloats - Jabot's where it belongs. Yes! Genevieve's ready to celebrate ~kiss~
In the van, Ronan's on the phone - hoping Cane was able to stop Lily from visiting Genevieve. Reporting Jack's visit, Ronan tells whomever he's talking to - get here fast - you wanna be here when this goes down. hanging up, Ronan goes back to watching through his binoculars. Stepping out of the van, his taped-up cell phone is left inside.
Still with a firm grip on Lily, Cane implores - stay away from my Mom's house today - for your own protection. Shirking out of his grasp, Lily grumbles about him wasting her time. This will be over soon, Cane insists. Lily doesn't care about his family secrets - and what she does is none of his concern - she's DONE with Cane! Stay away from us! And as a forlorn looking Cane leaves, Lily appears to regret her harsh words.
In bed,Collin wears a leopard print blindfold - as Jill tickles him with a feathered riding crop. She'll make him forget every woman he's ever known. Unbuckling Collin's belt, Jill gives him a taste of her 'magic' mouth ~kiss~ Having a wild and woolly evening in store, she then slips a handcuff on Collin.
Cane hops back into the van - what'd I miss? Watching through binoculars, Ronan updates - Jack's there - showing Genevieve how passionate he is - about her couch. Cane IS patient - he's waited years for this. Lily? She's furious with him (but, hopefully, will stay away from 'Mom').
What to do - what to do. Framed photo in hand, Lily flashes back to the Christmas Cane presented her with the gift of the Ashby family ornament. Oh how blessed Lily feels. Snapping out of it, Lily leaves a message for Jill - she's going to Genevieve's.
Genevieve wants to make this moment special - with a bottle of 1990 champagne. Better yet - let's celebrate at G-worm - shout the good news to the world. But wait - Lily's stopping by. Gen leaves a message for her - something came up - she won't be home after all. Hopefully she's not on her way - Genevieve and Jack skip out giggling.
At G-worm, Genevieve insists on paying. Champagne is just part of the celebration. And what goes on at her place later, Jack will not soon forget, Genevieve promises.
Back in the van, Cane worries that Collin will manage to elude them again. Ronan then gets an alert via walkie talkie (since there was no response to a text message); Genevieve's at G-worm. Where's my cell phone? Ronan wonders. In some mystery hand - who types; urgent - meet me at ....
Ashley and Tucker make out on the couch - her way of thanking him. For what? Righting a wrong. Ashley's happy her Dad's company is back where it belongs - and now she wants to make Tucker happy ~kiss~ Both get a text message - it's from Malloy.
Outside the van, Ronan and Cane search for the missing cell phone. Let's move away, he says over the walkie talkie (thinking he lost the phone in the woods). Uh oh - here's a car - Lily!
Getting no response when ringing the doorbell, Lily walks in - hello? It's Lily - she walks into the living room. Genevieve? Brushing Ronan off, Cane races to the rescue - Lily's NOT getting killed over this!
This can't be a coincidence, Tucker and Ashley compare messages (which are the exact same - to meet Ronan at a warehouse in two hours - there's a leak at the station). The address is WAY out of town - neither 'like the sound of it'.
As a suspicious man leaves G-worm, Genevieve and Jack's celebration is interrupted (when he gets the same text message from Ronan's phone - meet at the warehouse on the corner of Edmunds and Main). It's nothing, Jack shrugs it off.
Now handcuffed to the bed, Collin wonders how much longer does Jill plan on keeping him in the dark. Until she's sure he can't get away. Removing the blindfold, Jill explains this isn't a kinky sex game - Collin's tied up because he lied to her - about everything beautiful she thought he was. Whatever Collin's planning - she's gonna screw it up for him.
Still calling out for Genevieve, Lily gets to the kitchen. Hello? Cane appears - No time to explain - we have to go! Cane - get out of there, Ronan mutters (binoculars to his eyes). Don't touch me! Lily's not going anywhere with Cane. About time you got here, Ronan's joined by Chance. Let's get to the house! Lily and Cane argue - he'll explain - outside! Scooping Lily into his arms, Cane dives out seconds before the explosion. The house now on fire, someone's laying on the floor unconscious.
Next: Phyllis has info for Nick - the DA has evidence on YOU - and he's trying to get ME to rat you out .... Ronan has Collin handcuffed (in the suite) We got you pal - we finally nailed you. Jill and Chance look on smugly .... Vikki's worried - Do you think he could have found out? That I saw you with Diane the night she was killed? You and I better get our stories straight, Victor replies.
My Thoughts: Why would the 'world' care if Jack 'shouts out' his good news? Wouldn't it be more professional to share the news in a press conference? .... What kind of FBI agent uses a taped up cell phone - which he manages to lose? ... What happened to the highly classified secret mission Chance was working on? Nina's gonna be pissed - another son back in town without notifying her .... Guess Tucker's recovered from his befuddled state - since he's now doing his work - AND Sophia's. I wonder what his board members will think of him selling Jabot to Jack - turning down the 'big bucks' of a 'way higher' offer. And who's the anonymous bidder? .... Funny to hear Ashley calling anyone 'crazy' (given HER history) ... Tucker 'wouldn't eat' - unless Ashley brought him food? I guess she's bringing him take out (since their bar sized kitchen counter is only full of bottles of booze) ... Really Collin? You're in bed with a woman trying to seduce you in the most erotic manner - and you reminisce about a similar experience in Vegas? He's lucky Jill didn't shove the riding crop ... Jill's not exactly 'green' - running the bath for no reason isn't conserving water .... Jill may be good at doing nails - but she gives the lamest massage ever. Collin shoulda known something was up (so to speak) - since he was handcuffed with his T-shirt still on. He must be the only one in town who doesn't know about Jill's wild side - you'd think he woulda got hints on their honeymoon night... How convenient that GC has a sex shop that delivers - within 15 minutes. Bet they don't get many emergency orders. Have fun, the geeky delivery boy smirks (not even counting the money Jill shoved into his hand) .... Why does Jill keep putting herself in danger like this!? Cane huffs in frustration (like he has nothing whatsoever to do with said danger) .... Since Genevieve has what appears to be a good security system (with police, not guard response even) wouldn't she have cameras - alerting her to the unmarked beige van that's been parked in the north east perimeter of her property for hours? Not much point in having a security system - if Genevieve doesn't even lock her front door when exiting .... Cane refusing to tell Lily what's going on between him and his father is hardly a reason to revoke visits with his kids. She uses those kids as a bargaining chip ... When did Cane start referring to Genevieve as 'Mom'? I thought that title was reserved for Jill.... Sucks to be 'noble' Ronan sympathizes with Cane. How either of them perceive themselves as are noble I don't quite know. There's nothing noble about skipping town with your brother's liver - or posing as a ghost to drive your ex wife into an asylum ..... Merna's out grocery shopping - so Genevieve can't possibly go to the wine cellar herself? ... Good grief - another explosion - another incident at the old MacMillan mansion? This sure won't be good for Gloria's listing (and since Jeff's taken off with all HER money, she'll need all the commissions she can get) .... I think I have all subscriptions added.
