Returning to her former office - for forgotten reading glasses - Genevieve is devastated (when Jill realizes she didn't know Cane and Lily were getting married tomorrow - and rubs it in her face).
The Ashby home is a hive of pre-wedding activity. Flowers from Malcolm arrive. He always did have great taste, a suddenly insecure Sofia gets a pep talk from Lily; Moses is a miracle - everything turned out as it was supposed to.
At CL's, Devon and Neil briefly discuss the possibility of him working for Cane's mother. Harmony gets a warm welcome by both - and an invitation to the wedding. You bet your crack pipe Harmony will be Devon's 'date'.
At the mausoleum, Chloe updates Billy - on Kevin and his trashy bride (the gum chewing, Jersey Shore wanna-be). Why dump me - and run off with that skank?
At Kevin's, a scantily clad Angie's delighted to be a 'pop superstar'. Kevin grumbles - this sucks - he's gonna get off this runaway train. Uh uh - rejecting Angie's help, HE'S gonna get HIMSELF out of this.
Kay sits her 'tired bones' at Victor's table at G-worm. They discuss poor Adam - who's in Kansas reacquainting himself with his roots - hopefully coming to terms with his condition.
Sharon finds Adam rummaging around for a spoon. I don't need your help - thank you, he snaps (angry that she didn't tell him coming to the farm was Victor's idea).
Sharon insists - this is the perfect place to get your bearings. It wasn't your call, Adam growls - or his father's (who just wants to get rid of him). He must be laughing his ass off. Stop - face your feelings, Sharon's no shrink - she's someone who cares - very deeply. She won't let him leave ~hug~
Though she and Ethan weren't close, Genevieve's still hurt (that he didn't invite her). No - Jill isn't a perfect mother - but things changed when she admitted she was a lousy one. Because she loves Cane (who'd like to be closer to Gen), Jill warns her to change - before it's too late.
Traci and Abby have joined the regulars at the full-to-capacity Ashby home - when Kay arrives - to make an announcement. Listing all the obstacles Cane and Lily's love has overcome, she's sending everyone on a Valentine's surprise of a lifetime. Grab your passports - her private jet is whisking everyone off to France!
On the mausoleum's doorstep, Billy congratulates Kevin - have you lost your mind!? Holding his own, Kevin's wished good luck (as he's left to ring the doorbell). Please - just hear me out, he sputters at Chloe. It killed him - he wanted HER to be his wife.
Dropping by Kevin's apartment for clothes, Eden spots the pile of folded bedding on the sofa - someone sleep out here? Daddy's arrival saves Angie from answering. This place is too small - they need more bedrooms for all the little Angelo's to come. Stop - I think marrying Kevin was a mistake, Princess blurts out.
Kay can't go to France - tomorrow's Delia's birthday - she'll be there in spirit. She's even arranged passports for Moses and the twins (whom Liv goes to pack up). Cane let's Neil know his Mom's not invited - she's not a good person. 'Nuff said. In the kitchen, Lily has a Colleen-moment with Traci and Abby (who're both asked to stand up for her). Traci can't leave Jack - but she (and Colleen) join the list of those 'there in spirit'.
Granted THREE minutes only, Kevin goes back to the beginning - getting shot at while on the way to the church - Carmine thinking he got Angie pregnant - wanting to save Chloe and the wedding guests from being shot at - he couldn't risk hurting her. No! He never had second thoughts about marrying Chloe. It KILLED him to lie to her.
Celebrating your recent acquisition? Victor joins Genevieve at G-worm. She's hardly in the mood to celebrate today (but it has nothing to do with BofN). Victor chides her for not grabbing the life preserver thrown to her. Genevieve will float just fine. Don't say I didn't warn you, Victor leaves her to pressure Neil (via a message left on his voicemail).
Some groceries dropped off, Adam comes out of hiding. He tries not to think about childhood memories - all he wanted to do was get the hell away from here.
Now joining the Ashby gathering, Jill praises Kay (and her surprise). Billy arrives - to hear the great news. He and Vikki can't go - now's not a good time to leave town. Everyone files out - leaving Billy to extend his and Vikki's congratulations. Thank God they're leaving the country - or Cane would be asking Billy to be his best man. Awww - 'look at the brothers bonding'.
Angie stammers - we rushed into this. Kevin's not over Chloe. Alarmed that he's two-timing his Princess, Angelo will make sure Kevin keeps her happy - or pay for it! No... but... Daddy! Angie sputters - as Angelo marches out.
Kevin continues his crazy story - the seedy motel room - the homemade raft - a deserted island - then Angie admits she lied about the whole thing (to stop their wedding). Crazy - Chloe's tricked a guy once or twice - she's gonna rip this girl's eyes out. Kevin knows he hurt Chloe - but needs her to understand - he didn't leave because he wanted to. He did it to keep her safe. This changes everything, Chloe sighs.
At G-worm, Neil declines Genevieve's job offer. After some research, he doesn't want to be caught up in that kinda world. Denying Cane influenced his decision, Neil points out that she's not invited to the wedding. Battling tears, Genevieve hopes they all have a wonderful time. Take care, Neil leaves her gulping champagne. Victor materializes on cue - ready to reconsider an alliance with me?
Ducking Delia's questions, Kevin's left to take a call from Angelo - who warns him to respect his little girl. When Kevin updates that he told Chloe everything, Angelo threatens to have her shipped off to an island - like that idiot Jeff. No one will hear from her again! We ARE family - get home to your wife! ~click~
Sure Adam had some good times on the farm - but he worked his ass off to have a different life. Harvard - Wall Street. It all fell apart the minute he became Victor Newman JR. Rejecting Sharon's encouragement and praise, Adam gripes - has no job - his family hates him. I'm blind, he removes his glasses - to emphasize the nightmare he can't wake up from.
Neil drops off the kid's passports - then leaves Cane and Lily to marvel about getting married in France! This time tomorrow, Cane will be kissing his bride ~kiss~
Genevieve's NOT ready to relinquish BofN - but IS open to possibilities (perhaps another 'business arrangement'). She leaves Victor to look smugly triumphant.
At CL's, Billy tells Eden that Kevin was at Chloe's. Something's off about his marriage to Angelina - she doesn't get the vibe that they're in love.
Daddy - what did you do? a nervous Angie asks when her father returns to the apartment. Your worries are over, he assures Princess. Fisher will treat her like the gift she is. He and I understand each other now.
Rejoining Kevin, Chloe's surprised that he's leaving. It's not the best time - he's got something to figure out. Chloe deserves to know - we were BFF's - in love. Kevin mentions the picture of her kissing Daniel. Chloe was messed up - it didn't mean anything. YOU felt betrayed!? Yeah - and that's when Kevin started looking at Angie differently - she's sweet - warm - fun. He never expected to fall for her. OMG - you're serious, Chloe opens the front door - have a nice life. I'm sorry, Kevin says - then pauses to agonize as the door's slammed behind him.
Glasses back on, Adam encourages Sharon to go back to her daughter. Sharon's not abandoning her - she'll visit. No one deserves to be alone. Go away, Adam orders. Grabbing her coat, Sharon will give him some space - but isn't leaving Adam (who's left to mope alone).
Everyone's back at the Ashby's - and ready to go. Throwing an arm around her shoulder, Neil reassures nervous-flyer Harmony (which wipes the smile off Sofia's face). And as Devon appears with a giant sandwich, Cane thanks the generous Kay (who wishes them a drama free wedding) - unaware that Genevieve's booking the next flight to Provence, France!
Next: I know exactly how to play these two, Chelsea assures her mother - so just back off and let me do it ... Genevieve and I don't work - YOU are the mother of the groom, Cane implores as he holds Jill's hand ... Through her tears, Genevieve stands back - watching as the Minister welcomes all to Cane and Lily's wedding.
My Thoughts: Line of the Day goes to Lily; You're a Saint she tells Liv (which is one of the many nicknames for the do-gooder who managed to sleep with her BFF's husband while she battled cancer - and still came out smelling like a rose. And why was Saint Liv passed over for Maid of Honour duties? Lily's only connection to Traci and Abby is her dead BFF .. malcolm has 'great taste'? In what? Certainly not women ... If Angie's such a 'pop superstar', how is it that Billy didn't know she married Kevin? You'd think the journalist would have known about last night's celebration at G-worm .... Sharon? A shrink? Ha! She's reluctant to SEE a shrink - never mind play the role of one. And she's really ok with 'visiting' her daughter - to babysit the kidnapper - who's telling her to go away? ... And really - you'd think Adam would be better at being blind - he HAS had experience .... Why DID security not stop Genevieve from accessing Jabot's executive suites? Has she no pride? Couldn't she have bought another pair of 'reading glasses'? (or have her benefits ended already).... If Billy and Kevin had a spin off show, I'd definitely tune in. These tow have more chemistry than most of the romantic pairings. Bring on Kevlly I say! ... Great surprise Kay - but since she's not even going - has she earned the right to invite Vikki and Billy to the wedding? ... Blooper alert? Note the disappearing - and reappearing huge ketchup bottle in the middle of the farm's kitchen table. It's not there when Sharon first comes down to join Adam - then it's there - then it's not. And Harmony's lisp was very obvious when she told Devon she couldn't 'ssss sit on a secret like that' ... Not sure what they did to Adam's eyes (if anything) - but he actually LOOKS blind ...'Very fortunate'? Or did Kay throw some of her FORTUNE around - how else could she get three kid's passports without having parental consent or signatures - or their birth certificates etc.? .. Chloe's right - Kevin IS a coward. How long does he plan to let Angelo run his life? ... Of COURSE Angelo's gonna buy Kevin and Angie a big house. He was gonna buy Kevin and Chloe a dream house, it's assumed he'd do the same now that Kev married his Princess daughter ... The ONLY reason Sharon didn't tell Adam (that coming to the farm was Victor's idea) is because he'd 'flip out'? Not because she promised Victor she'd keep it a secret? ... Oh Traci! Kay suddenly notices her - as if she could possibly overlook her ... Talk about being 'there in SPIRIT' - when listing all Lily and Cane have overcome, Kay forgets to mention him putting Lily in the loony bin - by posing as a ghost ... Shouldn't Cane make sure he can get time off work at Jimmy's before leaving the country? And did Lily ever complete her project? A day in the life of a model - as shot by a former model? ... KAY can't go to France because it's Delia's birthday - yet Jill (her grandmother) doesn't give it a second thought?
