Cane thanks his wife and family - giving all - and his new 'Pops' - a hug. And as he expresses how much it means to have Jill there, Genevieve watches in the distance- then flees in tears, stifling sobs.
At G-worm, Glo and the Baldwin's discuss Kevin (whom no one's had a chance to talk to with his new wife epoxied to his side 24/7). On cue, the 'lovey dovey' newlyweds arrive with Angelo (who declares them a poster for 'love').
As Chelsea hunches over in pain, wincing 'it's too soon' (to be in labour). Nikki finally goes to her side - someone call her mother.
Whaddaya you want? Anita needs to talk - and not on the phone Victor gave her (for that purpose). When two suits appear, Victor orders them to take a good look at this woman's face - she's never to set foot on his property again. Are you crazy? Let go! Anita's unceremoniously escorted out.
As Angie and a reluctant Kevin pose for the cameras, the Baldwin's comment on his miserable he looks (with Glo joining them to agree - that ain't Kevin's 'look of love'). But how to speak to Kevin? Lauren has a brilliant idea - ask the newlyweds how they fell in love. Oh look - and there's Jeff - looking like a misplaced puppy dog.
The Ashby group file over to a beautifully set table. Oh that Katherine. Sofia again shows her insecurity - when Neil assures Harmony that she too will find love.
Labour? Seriously? In a hospital room, Billy and Nikki are skeptical - though Vikki believes Chelsea's in pain. Anita bursts in - what happened!? Where's my baby?! Chelsea's with the doctor's - Nikki's introduced. Arriving in a wheelchair, Chelsea calms her Mom down - let's wait for the test results. Noticing that Anita lost an earring in her rush to get there, Nikki steps out to take Victor's call. There's no mention of GCM or Chelsea - it's all about Victor's Valentine's surprise. Hanging up, he's happy to hear the musicians have arrived (and fails to notice the earring on the floor).
As French music plays, the Ashby wedding party joyously feast; the wine flowing - the laughter - the cake cutting.
Hey - you, Jeff summons Mike over to the bar. Does your Mom like chocolate? Mike points out that the bargain price tag's still on the box (and doesn't appreciate hearing the list of 'essential's' Jeff's money's going towards). Jeff can't stop thinking about Gloria - and just needs to pry her away from that goomba to talk to her. In that case, Mike wishes him Godspeed.
Make sure you get my good side, Angie preens for the camera's. Angelo somehow missing Kevin's sarcasm and dour mood, goes for bubbly - leaving Angie to apologize for Kevin (who says 'it is what it is'). He's done fighting a battle he can't win. Scowling, Lauren and Gloria observe.
As Anita talks of Chelsea as a tough kid (who broke her arm), Billy quips maybe she was faking it. Is this the way you talk about the woman carrying your child?! Anita snaps. Billy's NOT surprised when the doctor comes to reports all's fine with mother and baby.
Nikki returns to find the ranch in darkness. Hello? Lights come on - the musicians play - and a tuxedo clad Victor comes in grinning; Happy Valentine's Day. Nikki melts.
Feeling under-dressed, Nikki's told there's a Fenmore's gown upstairs - a chef's been brought from his restaurant to prepare her favourite foods. Just being with Victor will 'help' Nikki forget her 'stressful day'. Nobody knows me the way you do, she heads upstairs.
So - it's official - you played us, Billy snarls - then continues with sarcasm after the doctor clears Chelsea for release. Vikki feels the most important thing is that the baby's healthy. It's a day for lovers, Anita tells the Abbott's to go have fun (then, once alone, accuses Chelsea of shoveling a giant load of BS).
As the sun's goes down on the Ashby party, Jill confides to Neil that Genevieve was there - in tears. Devon stands to toast the newlyweds; Lily's happy, the kids are happy. Neil's next - Cane's to keep Lily safe and loved. Dru would be proud - cheers.
Kevin's behind the bar pounding booze back when Mike comes to say they'll deal with whatever's going on with Angelina - together. 'Poppa A' appears for a shot too. Nothing to fix - Kevin married Angie because he wanted. And as he downs another shot, Mike knows it's not true.
Meanwhile, Lauren goes to work on the gorgeous Angie (who bursts in to tears at mention of the quickie wedding).
Does Mr Bardwell have a reservation? It sucks that Jeff can't remember Gloria - but - flower and chocolates in hand, it's the thought right? Happy Valentine's Hunny Bunny. Glo turns - that was his pet name for her. Whaddaya know? Looks like part of Jeff can't forget her.
Nikki and Victor both admire the dress. Oh how Nikki's heart flutters. Now seated, she's impressed - a man who listens. She'd love to talk - about her stressful day. Updating on the episode with Chelsea, Nikki gets a text from Vikki (that all's fine). The Abbott's suspect Victor's responsible for bringing them to town - but that's not the case - is it?
Still at GCM, Anita scolds Chelsea for her 'my tummy hurts' scheme. The plan isn't to get a husband. About to give Billy a son, Chelsea gripes about Billy's love for the infertile ice queen.
Before the concert, the Abbott's arrive at Jimmy's. It's closed. Maybe not - Billy's just had it closed to everyone but them. The 'cheese' factor goes up - when Billy produces a huge 'be mine' heart ~kiss~
Now dark, Lily and Cane thank everyone - then head off to enjoy their wedding night (leaving the boisterous group to continue the celebration)
Victor scoffs at the idea that HE'S responsible for Billy's pregnant mistress showing up. Billy's just distracting Vikki from his infidelity. Prodded for a straight answer, Victor assures he had nothing to do with either Chelsea or her mother coming to GC. Now let's dance. This is my place right here, Nikki snuggles closer. I love you - this is where you belong, Victor agrees ~kiss~
Billy serves Vikki a 'gross' drink - then beer. And what game can she beat him at? Shuffleboard bowling, Billy decides. No talk about Chelsea being a lying liar. No - cause Billy's gonna be a losing loser. How is it even possible that Vikki's his? New Year's Eve 2009, Vikki reminds how he took her hand ~kiss~
As Jeff continues his attempt to woo Gloria, Angelo joins them - your neck looks a bit naked. Angelo - it's exquisite! Gloria gasps at the necklace - then handing Jeff his flower back - follows for another surprise. You can't win against Angelo, Kevin's equally defeated.
Tears? Lauren suggests Angie rushed into the marriage. Maybe - Kevin's sweet etc. - but it's not what Angie expected. Marriage is about supporting one another - talk to Kevin. Angie already knows what he wants. Angelo and Gloria then present the newlyweds with a listing. A house!? Kevin squawks - even more distressed to hear that he's now Angelo's his next door neighbour!
In their suite, an exhausted Lily and Cane lay on the bed to close their eyes a minute - but aren't too tired to ~kiss~
As Jeff watches, Glo doesn't look to happy on the dance floor with Angelo. Seated, Angie's sorry - will talk to Daddy. Kevin thinks it too late - let's dance. Both look grim as they sway in circles. Lauren updates Mike - the ditz has a heart - and it's aching.
Anita scolds Chelsea for faking premature labour. How did it go with 'him'? He tossed Anita out - so is not in charge anymore. Victor Newman can go suck eggs.
Victor kisses Nikki's hand - then her lips. We're not alone, Nikki reminds. Hand in hand, they head upstairs - the earring still laying on the carpet.
Billy kisses Vikki atop the jukebox.
Back in France, the celebrators discuss Genevieve (not showing up). She was never a real mother, Jill now feels it's too late for regrets. Tough lady, but Neil's sure she feels the loss.
In a Parisian bar, Genevieve orders champagne - telling the bartender that it's time for a change - so here she is - to figure out what that change is.
The newlyweds are in bed - doing what newlyweds do. I love you. I love you ~kiss
Next: Genevieve's in tears - please don't hang up - I can't leave it like this. I can, Jack hangs up .... No one could persuade me to leave you, Sharon assures. Not even Faith? Adam challenges ... That baby is a winning lotto ticket, Anita tells Chelsea - and we're gonna cash it in.
My Thoughts: Today's show was a big snoozefest ... What's Roxy doing that's so important she passed up on a free trip to France? ... Nikki's had a stressful day? Huh? She's not hospitalized - or blind - hosting her husband's pregnant mistress - nor is she trapped in a farce of a marriage to avoid a mob hit. No - Nikki's stressful day includes delivering a saddle to a kid's birthday party - and catching a glimpse of her daughter's stressful life .... Victor sure is a romantic liar. Of COURSE Nikki's gonna find the earring. Too bad it'll happen after sleeping with Victor. I'd say his lying to her face is unforgivable - but, sadly - it wouldn't be the worst thing Nikki'd forgive Victor for .. Victor pried the renowned chef away from his restaurant by 'asking nicely'? Yeah - please take this money ... Stupid line of the day goes to Jill: Genevieve must have found out where the wedding was. Gee - ya think? I'd guess so too - since you just said she was there. Jill has very good vision - to be able to see Gen's tears from 50 feet away. Thank you for having me, Harmony says (words I'm sure she's said many times before - in her groupie, drug addict life) .... Why is Mike bothering to look at G-worm's menu? Surely he has it memorized by now ... You'd think security would have approached Genevieve (especially given how dangerous weddings can be) ... Speaking of security - where were those two well dressed guys hiding? And why didn't anyone intercept Anita BEFORE she got to the front door? ... Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!
