Abby runs into Billy's screaming Chelsea's name. And he's even more alarmed to hear they fear Chelsea's gone and never coming back.
Why is Victor just staring at her? Vikki pleads with her father - begging him to call Anita - desperate to find Chelsea. And when Victor 'can't' help, Vikki expresses how worried she is - about the baby. Victor loves his daughter - but it's a blessing in disguise. Maybe Billy will be gone too. Doesn't Vikki understand how her father feels about that man?
Please, help me - the baby's coming - NOW. Freezing and soaked, by the pond with Adam, Chelsea's obviously in hard labour.
Hey Beauty? What'll it be? Drink? Foot rub? Ignoring Tucker, Ashley confronts him about firing Sofia. And why wasn't she told? Seems his ONLY concern is BofN. Ashley feels her husband doesn't give a rats ass about her brother - or his old friend Sofia.
Nikki's thrilled to hear Jack doesn't trust Genevieve - and sworn to secrecy, is stunned by the news that he's marrying her. OMG! It's not what you think, Jack assures - and not what Genevieve thinks either. In the dining room, Genevieve listens.
Vikki pleads for Victor's help - for the sake of the son she already loves; his grandson. All he cares about is that she defied him? (by marrying Billy?) That starts Victor off on a scathing rant - all about the 'cocky impertinent bastard' who doesn't deserve his sweetheart. Come to your senses girl! Chasing after your husband's illegitimate child!!? You kidding!!!? Does Vikki want to spend the rest of her life cleaning up Billy's messes?!!!!!
Abby admits they may have insulted Chelsea (who's very hormonal). Turning his phone on, Billy's missed 7 messages. Not too happy to hear Vikki's gone to Victor for help, Billy hustles Abby out - to search the one place they've missed - the dock Chelsea does her 'thinking' at.
Breaking into a cottage, Adam whips covers off furniture - making jokes as he wraps them around Chelsea (who won't let him go to make a call). You've got this girl! leaping into action, looks like Adam has no choice but to deliver the baby.
Let's not talk about BofN - agree to disagree, Tucker suggests (which pisses Ashley off even more). Does he not see why she's upset? BofN competes with her family business - AND comes with baggage; Genevieve (who betrayed her brother - imagine what she'd do to someone she had no connection to - like you). Tucker can handle himself - and once he buys BofN, Genevieve's out. Doubting that - and unable to get Tucker to respect her wishes, Ashley leaves to visit her brother.
Marry her! Why!? As Genevieve continues to listen, Nikki gets the answers she demands. Once Jack marries Genevieve, he gets her 'dowry'; BofN. The moment the company's his, he files annulment papers. He doesn't are enough about Genevieve for it to be revenge - it's business (finished the sooner the better). Outside, a crushed Genevieve starts dialing.
Vikki now talks of how much Billy loves her - and the little family they're growing. Doesn't it matter that she loves Billy? That he makes her happy? His son is her and Billy's blessing - and she must take care of Chelsea until this baby's born. As she gets to the door, Victor calls Vikki back - dials a number. Howdy Mr Big Man, Anita answers. On speakerphone, Vikki asks if she's heard from Chelsea (causing Anita to call worry that the selfish, greedy Abbott's have 'lost' their 'incubator'). Just have her call if you hear from her, Vikki's now off to call the police. Let me deal with it, Victor says.
Back in the cabin, Adam's got Chelsea in the position to 'bare down'. Squeeze my hand - push! You're doing great - push again - one more, he coaches. And with an almighty wail, Chelsea delivers her son into Adam's catcher mitts. But wait - why isn't he crying?
Summoned to G-worm, Tucker thought Genevieve need more time (to think about BofN). What changed her mind?
This is a cake walk (for a man who's battled with Black Knight). Yes, but you had real feelings for Genevieve, Nikki worries he'll get sucked in. Oh no - Genevieve won't get to Jack (like Victor does Nikki). He IS touched by her concern though - and swayed when she begs him to forget this awful idea. Let BofN and Genevieve 'go away'.
Lake Concord? On a dark night? Seriously? AND no phone reception, Abby whines to Billy (at Chelsea's car). Hey - a helicopter - too bad they're not looking for Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Victor's on the phone - with the helicopter crew who've spotted Chelsea's car. There're people at the car - lights on in the cabin. At Vikki's request, Victor instructs the pilot to pick her up on NE's roof. She has to be OK! Vikki runs to the door - then back to hug Victor (AFTER he says 'be careful').
Come on little man, Adam rubs the baby to life - Chelsea bursting into tears when hearing her baby gurgle. Grabbing conveniently placed scissors, Adam cuts the chord, and hands the wrapped baby to Chelsea. But when Adam quickly removes the boy, and looks at him like he's prime rib, she feels uneasy - what are you doing????
Jack doesn't share history or children with Genevieve (like Nikki does with Victor). But she's clever, cruel, unpredictable - and that makes Nikki nervous. Jack's confident - all he has to do is play it cool - showing just a hint of lingering affection is working. But - will she walk away? Nikki reminds that Gen pushed her last husband off a balcony. God only knows how dangerous she'll be when she loses Jack AND BofN.
Back at G-worm, Genevieve's impressed that Tucker remembered she drank wine coolers. Reminiscing about the past, Tucker hints that she broke his heart. Parting as kids with a crush, he wanted to make money - she wanted to travel. Amazing that their paths have now crossed in GC. You never told Ashley about us, Genevieve assumes.
Determined to get cell reception (to call Vikki), Billy's just gonna walk across the ice. No! Abby shouts in protest - as he stomps off.
He looks healthy - but the doctor has to check him out. A bit alarmed (as Chelsea seems delirious), Adam hands 'surfer dude' to her - and warning her not to fall asleep, goes to try get cell reception. And as Chelsea nods off, Vikki. As Chelsea murmurs about room service, Vikki tells her everything will be OK. Instantly falling in love, she then coos the same promises - to the baby looking directly into her eyes.
Ashley's at Jack's, blathering on about business. Checking his watch, he's distracted - Genevieve should be here by now - and she's not answering his call.
Correct - Tucker didn't tell Ashley about his impetuous youth (but will when the time's right). Getting down to facts and figures, McCall's got the cash to buy BofN. And if Genevieve wants to 'stay' on? McCall would love to have her - we can do great things together.
Getting an update from the pilot, Victor hangs up. BillyAbbott - yousonofabitch - thisisallyourdoing. Surprised to find Victor still at the office, Nikki's troubled to hear he's working on a 'project'.
As Vikki gushes over the baby, Billy arrives - and is quickly handed his son. Vikki covers Chelsea - as both wonder who helped her. Outside, Adam looks through the window.
Hmm - Tucker wasn't in such a hurry when they were kids. Genevieve's taking her time - he IS the front runner - but she must do what's best for HER.
Jack's still unable to reach Genevieve - but it all becomes clear - when Mrs Martinez explains that she saw Ms Atkinson earlier. Jack sighs - wears his 'd'oh' grimace. What's wrong? Ashley wonders.
Waiting for a status update on his project, Victor sends his sweetheart home. But as Nikki heads for the door, a furious Anita charges in. Now updated, Nikki's also furious (that Victor didn't tell her anything). Anita came because she loves her daughter. I love my daughter too! Nikki marches out to find Vikki.
As Adam hovers about, the Abbott's take good care of both mother and son. About to head to the helicopter, Abby arrives to tell them an ambulance has ALREADY been dispatched. Whomever it was saved our baby's life, Vikki gushes. And with that, Adam heads into the night.
Next: I was always hoping someday we'd reconcile. Jack's told to stop it. Genevieve knows he's lying to her ... Vikki (Billy at her side) tells Chelsea - I know this can't be easy for you. I don't wanna discuss anything until I see my kid first, Chelsea announces... Take this and don't come back (Victor extends at check at Anita)
My Thoughts: I absolutely loved today's show. The argument between Victor and Vikki was absolutely riveting! It took viewers a long time to warm up to AH (some still haven't) - but today I think she did brilliantly. Squaring off (and holding your own) against the formidable EB (doing what he does best) must be a daunting task. What a complex relationship father and daughter share. Victor's need for control is insatiable. Yes, he came through for Vikki - but by God she worked for it ... It makes no sense that Victor wouldn't update Nikki immediately. He finally does what she's been badgering him to do for weeks - and manages to piss her off in the process? .. Note that Vikki was almost out the door - all that begging and she didn't once offer to back off on BofN. Victor IS softening up - he called Billy's baby an 'illegitimate child' - not a 'bastard' (a word reserved for Billy) ... Thank heavens Adam regained his eyesight - he may be able to put out little barn fires but I doubt he'd be of much help to Chelsea. Now THAT'S how you redeem a character (though I hope the 'evilest evildoer who ever eviled' isn't gone for good) ... Billy would walk across thin ice to speak to Vikki. How sweet. Odd that he didn't fall in. Oh Jack - so close - and yet so far. If only he locked his doors ... ... Did you lose my girl? Anita talks like Chelsea's a misplaced sweater. ... Victor knows Anita's number off the top of his head? Impressive ... Ashley doesn't think Genevieve would just 'walk away' (from BofN). But why would it's buyer want to keep Genevieve on? Other than her 5 minutes in Jabot's marketing department, she has absolutely no experience .. Thanking Jeffrey for the 'trip around the world' DAYS ago, Anita's only NOW flying out of Chicago? Has she been reading the departure board all this time? You'd think she'd be on a beach by now ... Adam was kinda creepy when first holding the baby (kinda like Jacob imprinting on Renesme) .... And someone's gotta say it - this isn't the first time Adam's wiped baby matter off a woman's thigh. But why's HE sweating? ... Those scissors could NOT have been left in a more convenient spot. I'm surprised there wasn't a large bucket of boiling water next to em ... Poor Ashley - shoulda listened to Abby after all. And it's a good thing Tucker can 'take care of himself'. I have a feeling he'll be doing that for an awfully long time. Happy Easter!!
