At G-worm, Deacon continues to fuss over his drunken wife - telling Nick to take a hike. Nikki IS sober - and Nick has no business telling her what to do - or with whom.
You do have a flair for vengeance - but Mike thinks Victor's plan risky. So many moving parts must fit into place just so. Is he really willing to jeopardize NE? If it means neutralizing Adam - preventing him from hurting the family, you bet Victor is.
Just when Sharon thought the Adam she fell in love with doesn't exist, here he is again. Adam IS that man. Yeah - but he's also vindictive - cruel. Sharon sometimes believes he'd die for her - but Adam's hurt her more than anyone. Is she to believe it won't happen again?
Break out the chips and salsa - Kevin and Angie have done some shopping. Snarling at the clothes Angie shows off, Kevin points out that they aren't going clubbing! The piece to resistance? White shoes and belt for Kev (who's resisting). They're ONLY staying until it's safe to go back. THAT'S what they've gotta focus on. Kevin wants to go home - back to Chloe!
At the studio, Chloe grills Devon - wondering it Kevin talked to anyone about having cold feet. Angie's song playing in the background, Devon's gonna upload it to the Internet - wouldn't it be great if it caught on? <sarcasm>Yeah - cause then Chloe could listen to her wedding song ALL the time. </sarcasm>
Meanwhile, in Jamaica, the giggling newlyweds flop onto the bed. What's next? Who cares - as long as they don't have to leave the bed. What SHALL we do? ~kiss~
Forced by Kevin, Angie calls Vinnie (for news on Carmine). Hanging up, Angie reports that Vinnie's meeting Carmine tonight at some bar. Tomorrow? Kevin hopes. Angie's sure Vinnie can convince Carmine that she and Kevin aren't a 'thing'. She's so sorry it's taking so long. And when Kevin worries about her (and the baby), Angie thinks him sweet to care.
Adam's not asking Sharon for anything. But yes he is - compassion - understanding. How can he expect that of Sharon - after all he's done? Just let it go - for my sake. Faith depends on her - Sharon's determined to be a good mother. If that makes Adam sad - sorry - but she can't let it be her problem. Sharing one last look of longing, Adam leaves.
Nick's not to know - his hands must be clean. Mike marvels at all the people Victor's protecting - from the confines of a cell no less. You ain't seen nothin' yet, Victor boasts.
Nikki doesn't want to go back to rehab. And as she's served another drink, Nick blames Deacon for his Mom's relapse. Nikki's made her choice - and is quite happy with it. Nick insists his mother come talk to him. I don't ask much - please do this for me, he implores.
In bed, pen, paper and cell phone in hand, Vikki's setting some rules for a word game.
Kevin calls Eden (who knows there's a good reason he took off). Yes, she'll check in on Chloe - and no, he doesn't wanna talk to Mike. Getting another call, Eden takes a message for Kevin.
In the bathroom, Angie's on the phone with Vin - thanking him for his help and promising Daddy will give him a reward when this is all over. Hanging up, she takes a photo of herself in her new clothes.
Angelo can't get over Kevin dumping Chloe at the altar - wouldn't have seen it comin in a million years. Sending Angelo and Devon off, Gloria gives Chloe a pep talk. Kevin gets anxious - tends to snap when the pressure's on - but he loves you.
Nick continues to badger Nikki (who wants him to trust and accept her choices). Deacon claims to be just as invested in making sure Nikki's OK. And when Nick refuses to join them, Nikki tells him to move along then (but looks sad when he complies).
We don't need to worry about Nick, Nikki slurs. Deacon agrees. Nikki cautions him to watch out for Gloria (who must know that he slipped out the night Diane was murdered). Deacon needs a back up alibi. And as Nikki orders another drink, Deacon looks worried.
Mom's self destructing - and that ass Deacon ... Forget about him - Victor's sure Nikki will divorce him - help her when she needs you. In the meantime? Not much we can do. Nikki needs to hit rock bottom. Sacrifice what you must to help your mother. Nick gets a call from Sharon - who got the restraining order against Adam (but clearly isn't happy about it). Still not convinced that Sharon will abide by the order, Nick's OK with her taking Faith for the entire day or longer. Hanging up, Sharon flashes back to Adam's sweet words. On look - Adam's at her front door. Or is he? (because looking through the glass, she no longer sees him).
Opening the front door, Adam IS there (about to leave). Why did he come? To say he's not angry - that his mother loved Victor body and soul. He never understood why she left him - his life - and took him to the farm. But now he does. Hope loved her child enough to sacrifice her life with Victor. He could never be angry for doing right by her child. Holding Adam's hand, Sharon leads him inside - locks the door - pauses at the bottom of the stairs. Taking the hint, Adam removes his jacket ~kiss~
The Abbott's haggle over their word game. 'Hef' is a word of endearment. OK - Vikki needs the 'f'' for her word; ex wife. In honeymoon scrabble? Really? Vikki insists on keeping the 'x'. Grabbing the phone, Billy donates his 's' - to make ex wife ... sex wife. And now to celebrate ~kiss~
Kevin returns to the motel room with food - for the baby. He then balks that she's updating her FacePlace account. Relax, Angie's not saying where they are. Carmine will eat his heart out, she continues to type - Kevin continues to worry.
Chloe knows Glo's worried about Kevin - but why isn't he worried about her? She's going out of her mind. Really? Chloe's not happy to hear Angie's song (Devon's playing it for Angelo on his laptop). Up to ViewClick it goes. It's now 'out there'. Chloe sighs - when Angelo suggests piping it into G-worm's sound system - 24/7.
A sloshed Nikki keeps Diane's murder the topic of conversation. We're married - they can't make us testify against one another. You can tell me anything, she cackles. Deacon questions her change of heart - he doesn't have 'idiot' tattooed across his forehead. What gives? Nikki's jaw drops (as if she's insulted).
Nikki claims she got over herself - or rather, other's reaction to her. She's attracted to Deacon - and doesn't give a damn - she can do what she wants. Deacon's sweet for forgiving her rudeness. She forgives him too - almost. Back to the night in the park - leaving her beside a dead body. How long was Nikki there? What time was the murder. Deacon doesn't wanna discuss it - and excuses himself when the bartender comes over to settle up. Nikki's instantly sober - and the bartender doesn't even want the big tip - for putting alcohol in Deacon's drinks (instead of hers) - he's a jerk. I'm well aware, Nikki thanks him.
Nick updates Victor (on Sharon taking out the restraining order). He didn't want Faith with Sharon - if there was any chance Adam would drop by. Nick wonders why Victor used what little influence (he still has with the board) to give Adam his stamp of approval. Suffice it to say, Victor sees the larger picture.
Instant cut to Vikki and Billy making out in bed (the implication is that the larger picture includes splitting up the newlyweds).
At the CL's counter, Eden listens - as Mike pretends to be Kevin on the phone. Suspicious credit card charges indicate that Kevin's in Niagara Falls - apparently buying lingerie. No - don't put a hold on the card.
Angelo peers over Devon's shoulder - to admire Angelina's new profile picture. Look at that smile. And what's that? A new feature? A GPS marker - that says Angie's in Niagara Falls. Realizing his Princess lied to him, Angelo hopes she's alone (and slams the laptop shut for emphasis).
Chloe catches Gloria humming Angie's song - ahem. Sorry - but it IS catchy. Hey - has anyone asked Angelina if she knows where Kevin is.
In the motel, Angie squeals in delight. Devon linked her song on face place. I sound fantastic! Kevin can't help but be amused by her excitement.
Meanwhile, the honeymooners make out in the hot tub.
Deacon returns - to find Nikki's ordered another drink, for the road. Cheers. Deacon takes a small sip.
Victor explains that he's got responsibility to the shareholders - a feud with Adam will make the stock plummet. OK - as long as Nick has his Daddy's support in private. Do everything in your power to make sure that SOB doesn't ruin NE, Victor orders.
Naked and in bed, Adam kisses Sharon's shoulder. No, she's not sorry - but has to tell him about the restraining order (and is touched that Adam knew - and still came to her anyway - still understands). I'll go, Adam gets up. It doesn't take effect until tomorrow, Sharon stops him. So - we have one more night, Adam kisses his weepy lover passionately.
Next: Harmony's already at the studio when Tucker arrives. You guys here to gang up on me? Devon chuckles .... Nick would not sell you BofN - Adam might, Genevieve tells Jack ... I will always love you, a teary Adam caresses Sharon's face - as he's about to leave.
My Thoughts: Ahhh - so Nikki isn't drunk after all. I bet she's part of Victor's big plan. Not sure how splitting up Vikki and Billy plays into it - but it's hinted that it will. Putting an alcoholic back on the bottle is a most despicable act - but since Deacon did it to Nikki first, I guess it's OK. Still odd that Deacon never mentions his son, L'il D - the reason he went after Nikki in the first place ... Angelo provided the comic relief today - his reaction when it dawned on him that Angie lied, was hilarious (but he really shouldn't have taken his anger out on Devon's laptop). Kevin doesn't know that Angie's Face Place update pinpoints their location? Too bad the computer geek hasn't thought to log on - he might have been able to utilize proxy IP's (or sumthin') to misdirect Carmine (not that it matters - since he's in a Jersey slammer) ... The big contest turned everyone away after the first 1,000 contestants? Huh? Devon's spent all this time and effort prepping Angie - and he missed the deadline? Given she's his ONLY 'talent', you'd think he'd have managed to be at the front of the line ... Ah yes - here we go - the undeniable love between Sharon and Adam. They clearly love one another - BUT - and it's a big but - no love can compare to that which exists between mother and child. Unless of course, you're Sharon Newman. Admitting you've made big 'mistakes' in no way means you're gonna stop making them any time soon. I'm back on Nick's side now .. A public feud between Victor and Adam would negatively effect NE's stock? Yeah - cause having Adam as CEO wouldn't accomplish that already.. Special shout out today to Joan - you know who and why. Bless you!
