Billy gives Cane a call (which he ignores because he's on the CL's patio with Lily). Has he found the girl from Myanmar? He really needs to clear his name - put his life back together.
Bumping into Vikki at the park, Jill learns that she signed the divorce papers. Both would like to get their hands on Billy (who Vikki's clearly nowhere near getting over).
At G-worm, a busy Gloria puts Kevin to work (seems she's short staffed and not able to pay employees). Devon arrives as summoned - Yes, he remembers Angelina (but sure didn't 'promise' to help with her music career). Angelo and another mobster arrive with Angelina. Is Mr Big Shot record Producer ready to make his Angie a star? It's showtime!!
Daniel's talking with the Baldwin's (and Eden) when Phyllis comes in to say that Lucy's spending the day with her 'Mom'. Shaking his head, Daniel heads for a 'cafe anything' - leaving Mike to force a smile (as Lauren pointedly ignores Phyllis).
Avery's with Daisy - who wonders why she's taking her case. Because Avery's got more time now - to right a wrong that's been far too long coming.
On the CL's patio, Cane declines joining Lily for a run - he's 'sorta' got work to do. Gotta go, a rejected Lily abruptly leaves Cane (to report back to Billy that he's working on it). Billy repeats the urgency in getting his life/family back; which starts with finding this girl).
Still on a park bench, Jill and Vikki continue to discuss Billy. Lying, cheating, breaking hearts is what men do, Jill gripes. When Lily appears to agree, Jill hopes she's not referring to Cane.
Your Aunt used emotional and physical threats to control you, Avery's ordering a full psych evaluation. Daisy's been having headaches (since taking a punch while defending Sharon). Avery then announces that she's Phyllis' sister - so if that's a problem .... No no - knowing Avery has some 'serious beef' with her sister, she might work even harder to kick her butt in court. This has nothing to do with Phyllis. Whatever you say, Daisy's not convinced.
Daniel grumbles to Eden - Lucy thinks her grandma's her Mom - and what? I'm her brother? Hobbling over to pick up a dropped toy, Lauren accepts Phyllis' invitation to sit. Lucy's so cute, she gushes - hard to believe she has Carter blood. The redheads then gripe about Avery getting Daisy visitation rights (which is so hard on Lucy). Lauren's still angry at her BFF (but now finds her actions logical). Why is Avery helping Daisy? She's trying to ruin my life, Phyllis states. 'Ladies', Ronan strolls in (Lauren noticing the chemistry). Mike returns to update that Avery has filed a lawsuit against one of his clients; Phyllis.
With a new piano on display (courtesy of Angelo), Glo serves Devon, Angelo and Angie. Anything else? Yes - Angie wants to know who the hottie is behind the bar. Why that's Glo's smart, sexy son - who's engaged. To Chloe (you met them both at the Halloween party). Back at the bar, Kevin strongly disapproves of her plan to get cash from Angelo, the loan shark - instead of asking Mike). Prepare to be 'wowed', Angelo leads Angie to the piano. Accompanied by a pianist, Angie butchers another song (which only a proud father can enjoy).
On the patio, Cane asks a favour of Ronan - he needs to find someone in Myanmar. Ronan's pessimistic - but still, Cane's gotta try. Meanwhile, In his seedy motel room, Billy watches his and Vikki's wedding video on his laptop.
Phyllis denies stealing photos - Ricky offered to sell them. Technically, Avery stole them from HER. Making a call, Mike learns that Avery is visiting an inmate; Daisy. Forcing Daniel to watch Lucy, Phyllis runs out (Mike on her heels). Guess it's you and me kiddo, Daniel looks uncomfortable with Lucy in his lap.
Lily shares her suspicions about Cane (with Jill and Vikki - who feel she should confront him). Lily has - he claims there's one thing she can be sure of; his love for her. And are you? Jill wonders.
In Ronan's office, Cane's on the phone - trying to track down Chelsea Lawson; an American who had a run-in with the police in Myanmar. Nothing on her? How about Billy Abbott? There must be something on him - he just spent time there. You must be mistaken, Cane ends the call. Both he and Ronan are sure someone's hiding something.
Watching him and Lucy colour, Eden and Lauren are delighted with how good Daniel is with her (he and Lucy are both 'missing out'). Daniel didn't want to be a father - what makes Lauren think he'll change? Her, Lauren smiles knowingly.
Phyllis and Mike find Daisy in the prison's rec room - supposedly there to make sure she's happy with the way the visits are going. Oh - I guess you found out, Daisy smirks. Found out what? Avery appears to supply the answer - found out that I'm working on getting Daisy released - and back with her daughter.
At G-worm's bar, Kevin serves Angie a 'Sweet release' - then tries to dissuade her flirting by talking about his wonderful fiance, Chloe (who Angie doesn't remember). Devon says she needs to practice in front of an audience - maybe Kevin could come over. I could practice on you, she purrs (as Kevin looks like a terrified caged animal). Meanwhile, Devon's suggesting Angie consider another career - music's tough. Nu uh - what Angie wants, Angie gets - there's an audition coming up in GC - it would break his Princess's heart if she didn't get in. I've got faith in you kid, Angelo leaves Devon and Gloria to smile weakly.
Now strolling through the park, Lily WANTS to trust Cane - but is afraid of being hurt. Jill and Vikki both encourage her to have faith in Cane (who's now at Billy's - reporting that there's no record of him being locked up there). Not happy to hear that Ronan's now involved, Billy wonders if maybe Victor had a hand in it. And when he decides to go back to Myanmar, Cane decides to make the trip.
You self serving, vindictive ... Mike interrupts Phyllis - to talk about Daisy torturing his wife. Phyllis points her finger at Avery - you hate me enough to put a child at risk!? She's never had a chance to be a mother, Avery protests (then lists the ways Phyllis has used Lucy). You'll never win her freedom, Mike and Phyllis agree - and even if she did, no Judge will give Daisy custody. Same could be said about you, Avery leaves Mike to calm a furious Phyllis down.
Yes, Cane's sure he wants to go to Myanmar, Though worried about Lily's reaction, Billy will email Cane a list of places where he might find Chelsea. Left alone to do some research online, Billy reads an article on the increase of Western tourists being arrested (most claiming innocence).
Back at G-worm, Gloria's flirting leads to hints about needing money. Tired of waiting to be seated, Jill comes over to the bar (and finds it refreshing when Angelo, the gentleman, pulls out a bar stool for her). Not impressed? Gloria. At the piano, Devon gives Angie some songs to practice - in the right key. Angie's got another job for him - hook her up with Kevin. He's engaged. Didn't Devon hear Daddy? What Angie wants, Angie gets. I. Want. Kevin.
Avery will get Daisy some appropriate clothes for court. Phyllis? Leave 'that' to me.
Back at CL's, Phyllis (Lucy in her arms) and Mike rejoin Lauren and Daniel. Daisy won't get her hands on this kid, Phyllis vows (causing Daniel to blame her meddling). Mike referees - and no sooner has he warned Phyllis not to give Avery any ammunition, Ronan comes over to say that charges have been laid against her for the stolen/published photos. He's here to arrest her.
Not caring that crossing Angelina's family is a bad idea, Kevin will NOT take her out - now or ever. Devon reports back to Angelina. So - what'd he say? Kevin says you're 'really sumthin'. At the bar, Gloria's happy with the check - but worried about the 20% interest. No interest - it's a gift 'doll-face' - we're partners, Angelo clarifies (as Kevin frowns his disapproval).
Handing Lucy to Daniel, Phyllis assures that she'll be back - tonight. Don't say anything, Mike will meet them at the station. And as Ronan leads Phyllis out, she lunges at Avery spewing threats. Daniel gets a call from Daisy - who gloats that Lucy will be with her real Mommy soon. If Daniel doubts that, he doesn't know his Aunt very well. Huh? Oh - you didn't know? She's your Mom's sister. Daniel swivels in his seat to stare at Avery (at the counter getting coffee).
In the park, Billy leaves a message for Cane - then ducks out of sight when he spots Vikki (who looks spooked as she looks in his direction - then leaves). And as Billy takes a seat on the bench, Cane catches up with Lily (to tell her that he's leaving the country to help someone). Yes, Lily trusts Cane - but is afraid he'll get hurt. Cane promises he'll come back to her. I love you, they both say - with a kiss.
Next: How is it I never knew I had an Aunt? Daniel asks Avery ... Chris is with Paul at G-worm; he's your son. Yeah - but he's also Isabella's, Paul reminds .... If you drop the charges, this all goes away, Phyllis tells Ricky (in Ronan's office).
My Thoughts: Not to Gloria: it might make some diners queasy when seeing their food server jamming both fingers into her ears - up to the knuckle. Just sayin' ... Is Ronan the only cop working out of GC's police station? There's no lowly uniforms to bring Phyllis in? Shouldn't Ronan be staring at his whiteboard in frustration or sumthin'? .... How IS it that Daniel doesn't know that Avery's his Aunt? This poorly kept secret hasn't been published anywhere? ... As much as I love to see Phyllis squirm, Avery's wrong to represent Daisy (if she only represents the 'innocent'). Who's paying her anyway? The only reason she'd take this case pro bono would be to get back at Phyllis. And when Avery asked if Daisy was 'interested' in regaining custody of her daughter, she expressed no interest whatsoever - Daisy was merely 'curious' (as to why Avery's taking her case) That shoulda been a huge red flag right there ... If poor Daisy's having 'terrible' headaches and dizzy spells (from a shot to the head), perhaps she should go to the infirmary for Tylenol (as opposed to whining to Avery) .... If Angelo's so rich and afeard - why hasn't he found a record producer before now? At some point, someone's gotta tell the tone deaf Daddy that his daughter can't sing .... What 'singing show' is holding auditions in tiny GC? (American Idol fans may remember Angelina as a past contestant) ... Neither Gloria nor Kevin noticed the huge grand piano appearing in the restaurant? Where's Deacon disappeared to? ... Why is Lily devouring a calorie laden croissant immediately before her jog? .... Really Kevin - put on the damn jacket (he's serving drinks in a fine dining establishment wearing plaid flannel?) .... With his history of immigration/deportation issues, does Cane even HAVE a passport (to fly to Myanmar)? (and what makes the convicted Billy think he'd be allowed to hop on a plane) ... Does Kevin's skill serving coffee qualify him to mix elaborate drinks like a 'Sweet Release'? ... Most men lie and cheat, Jill gripes (clearly forgetting cheating on John - with his SON) ... If charges have been filed against one of Mike's clients, why wasn't he notified (and why does he automatically consider Phyllis a client? Does she have him on constant retainer - like Victor?) ... Phyllis WASN'T 'helping' Daisy? How is hiring her a high priced lawyer - bringing her a dowdy court dress etc. not helping her? ... The only 'serious beef' Avery has with her sister, is the beefcake ex husband they're sharing ... Lucy's a bit young to be 'messed up' (by calling her granny 'Mom' and Daniel her brother). Phyllis is really pulling the wool over her eyes (literally - her red hat was completely covering the poor kid's face until Phyllis joined the Baldwin's) ... Love Lauren's leopard print crutches - but shouldn't she or Phyllis have taken the time to wash off the toy picked up off the coffee house floor (which promptly ends up in Lucy's mouth)? ... Thanks so much to everyone who's taking the time to visit www.fibrofoundation.org. I am being kept apprised daily of donations made in Eric's name - and can't thank you enough. My list of angels is growing and will be posted very soon.
