At Jack's, the Genevieve/Victor photo weighs heavily. After all she's put him through, Jack's immune; neither surprised, nor hurt - Genevieve would sell her soul (or seduce Victor) to put BofN on top. True - but Nikki suspects Victor's involvement is more 'personal'.
Needing to hear her voice, Cane calls Lily from Japan - to report he cancelled his meeting (with a government agent). Genevieve wouldn't resort to bribery, would she? Cane knows his mother would do anything to win. Cane could save his mother - or drink sake (letting Genevieve sink herself would help Jabot).
In the private room, Genevieve schmoozes with Mr Yoshida. Accepting his gift, she has none to offer in return - but is sure that BofN is the only cosmetics line for Mitsukushi.
At home, Angie's gung ho to tell her father (that SHE made a mistake). Told not to worry (Angie will call him with good news), Kevin realizes she's really amazing -good luck. Now alone, the friendly kiss on the cheek clearly meant more to Angie.
At the studio, Tucker is Devon's for the night. Fire it up - let's hear the new song ...
At the club, Delia runs into Kevin's arms. No, Chloe didn't know he was gonna be here. Both smile awkwardly - as Delia insists that Kevin come see her ballet dance.
Meanwhile, Angie joins her father at G-worm - with something super important to say; there's huge problems in her marriage.
As the new owner of BofN, Genevieve wants to make an old, successful relationship new - and even MORE successful. Is there ANY way she can convince Mr Yoshida to sway the Mitsukushi board? Told it's tradition to give 'gifts'. Genevieve would like help calculating a proper token of her appreciation.
Back at Jack's, Nikki's starting to doubt Victor chasing Genevieve (first Paris, then Japan). He's trying to pay her back. Jack hates defending Victor - he's a rat and a liar - BUT - the picture might be inaccurate - manipulated (by Genevieve). Yes - but Victor didn't mention ONE word about Genevieve (who's now one more secret between him and Nikki).
Tucker declares the song 'impressive' - with a bit of help, it has 'hit' written all over it. If it sucked, he WOULD tell his deaf son. Arriving with coffee, Lily's pressured to stay. Tucker suggests they bring Angie and the musicians in - now - 'massage the kinks' as they go along.
No - Kevin's not cheating on Angie - but marriage isn't what she expected. She rushed into it - it was HER mistake. No need to wipe the floor with that punk - it's ME, not Kevin. Angelo's 'associate' arrives for a meeting. And getting a 911 text from Devon, Angie leaves - forget I said anything.
Kevin would love to come ... But has other plans, Chloe assumes - with Angie. Kevin was supposed to meet Eden - but he's free. Dance recital here we come (the trio file upstairs).
Maneuvering himself onto the sofa, an angry Jack asserts that Nikki deserves better than Victor (the selfish bastard). Whining that Victor promised to be honest with her, Nikki's not sure she can get past this picture. Jack concludes that it all comes down to Nikki (and what she can and can't live with).
Forget the box of pastries, Genevieve understands that an exclusive contract warrants a more bountiful (and lucrative) gift. How about .... Cane suddenly bursts in - am I interrupting?
At the mixing board, Tucker and Devon collaborate on the song (with Lily signing some help). Angie arrives to say she likes it too. They're genius - just like that Beethoven guy. Devon hands over the words - a ballad; inspired by her and Kevin falling for one another.
Delia declared the best 'buttercup' on the stage, Kevin suggests some post performance ice cream.
Grateful for Jack's objectivity, Nikki appreciates him putting aside his feelings towards Victor - and Genevieve (whom Jack's not ready to talk about). She has much to think about (re: her future).
Pretending to be drunk, Cane plops down beside Genevieve (who apologizes). You trying to steal my contact? he whines about Jabot. Why yes - he IS Cane Ashby - Genevieve's son (who warns Yoshida not to have anything to do with his mother).
Sharing an ice cream sundae, Chloe reminisces about good times with Kevin. Delia misses something about the hospital; Kevin's daily visits. I sure miss you. I miss you too, Kevin's smile fades.
Back at the studio, Angie thinks the lyrics beautiful - but would like to 'play' with the song - to make it more personal. Please! This is MY love life I'm singing about. And if Angie can put her two cents in now, she'll give her whole heart when singing it.
Nikki ready to leave, Sarge arrives. Yes, Jack's had the house modified. And as Sarge goes to inspect, Jack asks a distressed Nikki to take care of herself.
Yoshidu leaves Genevieve and her son to talk. Dammit - you ruined my meeting! she wails. Cane hisses at Genevieve - I just saved your neck!
At the ranch, Nikki looks at the photo one more time - then gets a text; Victor's on his way home.
Cane tries to convince Genevieve that Yoshida's a government agent - who was about to bust her for offering a bribe. That's quite a story - she had no idea Cane would stoop so low. Victor had NOTHING to do with this meeting - Genevieve refuses to believe that Cane's trying to protect her (and now knows how far he'll go to sabotage her).
Sarge approves of the modifications - but NOT the staff serving Jack his tea. NOT appreciating the attitude (that comes with the therapy - no extra charge), Jack claims that tea's been served in this house for decades. Get your own tea - your own food - Jack must work his muscles - and train his brain 24/7. Being lazy will kill ANY chance Jack has of EVER getting out of that chair!
Angie gone, Devon's not happy that he's letting her rewrite his lyrics. Lily and Tucker support the idea - tell her 'no' if the new lyrics don't work (though they might be wonderful). Predicting a late night, Tucker goes to fetch burgers (leaving Lily to force Devon to admit it's going well with Tucker). Devon may not be comfortable - but Lily thinks they make beautiful music together. OK, Devon admits he enjoyed himself.
At home, Angie chats to Vic (the dog) - she loves this house - but will keep her promise to Kevin (even if it breaks her heart) *sniff*
Ready to leave, Delia lets it slip that Chloe's meeting Daniel. Kevin gushes over Delia some more - and bidding the ladies a good night, sadly watches them leave (Chloe giving him a quick look over her shoulder).
Why is everything an insult or an order?! Jack IS making an effort - and WILL walk again. It'll take YEARS, Sarge tells him to fight - not live the way he has been. Jack can't stand to be in the same room with Sarge - please get out of here. Gladly, Sarge exits.
You humiliated me, Genevieve refuses to believe that Cane did her a favour. Oh? NOW you're my 'son'? Selflessly helping me? That's never happened before. Not sure why he even bothered, Cane leaves Genevieve to second guess herself.
Victor's thought about Nikki the whole way home ~hug~ How was Japan? Nikki smiles in his arms (causing eyebrow gymnastics from Victor).
Next: Kevin never did anything wrong! He never loved me! Angie wails at her father ... I wish you hadn't waited so long to confide in me, Mike says. So - what happens next? Kevin wonders ... Is this how you got what you wanted out of her? (Nikki shows Victor the photo on her phone). Where'd you get that? Victor asks.
My Thoughts: If it's SO easy for Angie to convince her father that the marriage isn't what SHE wants, why didn't she 'protect' Kevin months ago!? .... If Tucker means 'a little bit', why can't he just say 'a little bit'? Devon has enough challenges - without trying to decipher Tucker's made up words ... And since Devon's deaf, shouldn't the studio door be locked? Or at least have a receptionist posted at the door? Given that his only 'artist' is a mafia Princess, folks shouldn't be able to walk in - and sneak up on Devon ... Good Lord - did Angie really just compare Devon to Beethoven? ... Again - why would Genevieve have such an important meeting in a room with paper walls (that any drunk can stumble in to)? ... I get that Sarge is hard-ass - but doesn't he know that rich folk don't GET their own tea?
