Waiting nervously (to meet back up with the man who's taking them to Billy), Vikki's horrified to get a text from her Dad. Somehow knowing she's in Myanmar, he's flying out! Vikki assures Jill that she won't let Victor mess this up (not when they're so close to finding Billy).
In Billy's motel room, Mike sees no Tank - or sign of a struggle. Ordering Mike to search for Billy, Victor's off to Myanmar. Shoving Billy through the open door, Tank claims he found him on the corner. Warning Billy not to try escaping again, Victor gets a text from Vikki (whom he calls as Billy's removed from the room). Why go to such a dangerous place alone? Victor scolds - and is comforted to know Jill's with Vikki (and happy to hear they're coming home). As someone watches from outside, Jill takes the phone (promising to take care of Vikki). Thanking Victor for his concern, Vikki claims that she and Jill are stopping in Thailand for a few days of shopping (but instead - are looking forward to seeing Billy; bringing him home).
At G-worm, Ashley reminds the flirtations Gloria that although their ceremony is tomorrow, she and Tucker ARE already married. Silly Ashley - Gloria was just kidding. Knowing Moses' Christening reception will be there, the Godfather is paying the tab. You're one lucky gal, Gloria leans in to whisper loudly to Ashley before sashaying off. Tucker knows Neil can well afford the party - but he'll never be able to thank him enough - for getting Devon out of the 'system' and being such a good father to his son.
Joining Devon and Roxy at CL's, Lily gets a vague answer when asking if Devon's OK with Tucker being the Godfather. And as Devon goes to buy coffee for Neil and Sofia, both Roxy and Lily look concerned.
Can baby Moses keep a secret? Mommy loves him - and his Daddy too. Neil comes out to welcome Liv in. And as Sofia's putting the 'perfect' Christening outfit on Moses, Neil quietly tells Liv that he feels guilty about betraying Malcolm - but he loves his son - and Sofia's a wonderful woman.
Still at the bar, Jill calls Lauren (to ask her to deliver Moses' Christening gift). Where are you? Lauren asks again - as Jill babbles good byes and hangs up. It's time, Vikki leads her out of the bar - both unaware that they're being followed.
Leaving G-worm, the McCall's discuss the Christening. Tucker admits it's strange being around the son who's life he's missed. He WOULD have stepped up - Ashley believes him - but now he must convince Devon.
As Lily, Devon and Roxy gush over Moses, Sofia surprises Liv - she's enjoying her time at Neil's but will be moving back to her place after the holidays. Nosy Aunt Liv then questions Lily about Cane - and Devon about his biological parents. And as the disorganized group files out, Lauren arrives with Jill's deliveries. Oh? Jill's out of town? Lily's nosy too.
Back at Billy's room, Victor lies - Vikki's visiting Sam in New Mexico. And the next time she calls, Billy will be long gone. No more escapes - Tank's to do whatever he has to do.
In an alley, a nervous Jill and Vikki think better of going with their new pal - bring Billy HERE (or at least call him). Flipping out a knife, the man snarls - you aren't going anywhere (except with ME).
The McCall's are the last to arrive at the Christening (in the same church they'll be wed tomorrow). After introductions, Liv holds Moses as the Reverend speaks. Standing beside Devon, Tucker gets emotional.
Since Tank enabled him to see his kid, coming up with an escape story (to save his job) is the least Billy could do. So, does Tank know where Billy's being exiled to?
On the CL's patio, Mike's updated. Vikki going to Myanmar tells him she's not as over Billy as Victor thinks. She will be - and it's best she's out of town until Billy's gone. Joining the men, Lauren hears that Jill and Vikki are on their way back from Myanmar.
Jill and Vikki soon learn that they're being kidnapped for ransom - OR - they can stay and wait for the police to arrive and throw them in jail for carrying this here brick of heroin. Quickly realizing that he's the same man who framed Billy, Jill and Vikki have no choice but to cooperate - until Cane appears to knock the guy out with a piece of lumber.
As Cane finishes off the thug and ushers the ladies out of the alley, Billy's holding ice to his sore jaw. Sorry that he has no clue where Billy's being sent, Tank thinks him a 'stand up' guy. Shame Mr Newman can't see that. What did Billy do anyway? He messed up bad - and Victor will never let him stop suffering for it.
Alone on the patio, Mike's particularly glad to see his wife. And since this afternoon's crisis has resolved itself, Mike's taking his wife home for some sex.
As Moses Dupres Winters is Christened, Ashley spots Victor's arrival. The Reverend talks about parenting - the best example parents can set is by loving and respecting each other.
Neil leaves the gathering - honoured that Victor showed up (to say how lucky Moses is to have him for a father - and to hand Neil an envelope). Meanwhile, Tucker poses with Moses in his arms (causing snide remarks from Devon - and whispering amongst Ashley and Liv; everything happens for a reason). Victor's too busy to attend the reception at G-worm - but appreciates the invitation.
Billy confides losing Lucy - then Vikki. Running away, he told himself she'd be better off without him. Hopefully Vikki's happy with this new guy - and has a nice birthday tomorrow.
Back in the bar, Cane claims he followed Jill and Vikki to Myanmar. Do you think Billy's dead? Vikki blurts out.
The Christening group are now enjoying Champagne and sparkling cider at G-worm - all lifting their glasses to Tucker's toast. Neil briefly touches upon the circumstances of Moses' birth - and thanking Sofia profusely, presents her with a gift (a necklace with Moses' birthstone).
Tank's seen a lot of people try to cover up secrets - the truth always comes out in the end. Victor arrives - no need to fix the door - Billy's flying out tomorrow; New York - then New Deli. India!? Billy doesn't look too happy.
This couldn't wait until the morning? The official the ladies initially bribed for info takes more cash - but has no more info on Billy (who disappeared without a trace). Because they're dead, Vikki concludes. There's something I should tell you guys, Cane's clearly swayed by their grief.
In bed, the naked Baldwin's enjoy their afternoon delight. Why was Lauren wearing such sexy lingerie anyway? She had plans for tonight. But with Fen not home for a few hours, now will be just fine ~kiss~
The party at G-worm breaks up. As Liv and Lily say their good bye's, Tucker hopes Devon will reconsider attending his wedding tomorrow. Polite but distant, Devon declines. Thanked (for paying the bill), the McCall's leave - followed by Devon and Roxy. Oh what a beautiful Christening. Neil agrees - then asks Sofia to marry him.
Cane doesn't believe Billy's dead - let's get to the airport. When Vikki refuses to leave without Billy, Jill assures that they're not giving up. Cane finally convinces Vikki to leave - Billy wouldn't want her risking her life.
Victor's arranged for Billy to stay at a retreat - a monastery. Yeah - a lot of chanting (which Victor's done and found renewing). You'll love it - no phones, TV, Internet or electricity.
Next: I want Daddy, Delia whines (as Victor and Kevin watch on) ... Chance confronts Ronan; None of us care what your intentions are - we just care that you stop hurting her .. Victor snarls at Billy - I'd love nothing more than erasing YOU from her memory.
My Thoughts: Assuming Victor's paying Tank a hefty wage (not to let Billy out of his sight), he didn't seem too upset to hear that Billy was found 'on the corner' ... Yes - Sofia sets a 'wonderful example' for her son (who's paternity was a toss up between two brothers) Did Neil REALLY have to mention that part in his toast? ... What exactly was the purpose of hiring the wonderful Debbie Morgan to play Yolanda/Harmony? The anticipation of her arrival far exceeded her brief stint on the show. Too bad - she was a more than adequate recast .... Myanmar has a Minister of Hotel and Tourism (great weather, beautiful 'unspoiled' beaches open 8 months of the year - great surfing - they're big on soccer - has industry - new resorts/hotels and old caves, statues and archeological wonders. So I have to wonder what the Minister thinks about his country constantly being described as 'dangerous'. Myanmar has more than it's fair share of political prisoners - and the US does have sanctions against Myanmar (because of political/human rights violations). Is Myanmar like Cuba? In the bad books - yet remains a popular tourist destination for many foreigners? I wouldn't be at all surprised if per capita, GC has a higher crime rate than Myanmar (where alleyways are also a dangerous place - or a great place to have random sex) .. Why would Victor take ANY comfort that Jill's with Vikki? (she's twice Vikki's age - doesn't know karate or anything - and is a magnet for bad boys) ... Kinda nauseating to hear Neil always praised as a fabulous father - looking down his nose because Malcolm 'ran' (when he let Dru raise Lily alone - because he himself ran away) ... 'Healthy looking baby' Victor? - Neil's 'little man' looks to be around 6 months old already. Oh Neil - Moses isn't 'smiling deeply' at you - he has gas ... Victor has the option of NOT paying to have the motel room door fixed? Since he kicked the door in, I'm assuming the damages will just be charged to Victor's credit card. At least it looks like he's not the one who set Billy up (though that'll be small consolation when it comes out what he IS responsible for).
