Glad to be bumping into Adam at the club, Sharon heaps praise on the good samaritan. Humble, Adam explains what Sharon already knows (though she trusted Chelsea's word, not him).
Victor/Genevieve square (and stare) off against Jack/Nikki. Musical beds? Abby quips - as the couples take sarcastic jabs at one another. Walking into the not so festive party, Tucker wonders what's goin' on?
Over the silence, Abby and Jill quietly update Tucker (on Victor and Genevieve's deal and hook up). Scolding his father, Nick wants to know the terms of the deal (which Victor will discuss at the office).
Jack apologizes to Billy (who thanks all for coming - but pulls the plug on the 'hijacked' party). Told that Nikki's done with Victor (and taking Jack home), Vikki insists on having a word with her father (while Genevieve goes back to NE). So, what do you want to say? Victor wonders.
Victor didn't come to disrupt the party (with his 'new tramp'). He came to tell his family that he got BofN back. Jack speaks for all - no one cares that Victor's got BofN or Genevieve. Vikki knows all about Victor hiring Chelsea (and that he'd have let Billy rot in prison if Delia didn't get sick). Billy says a few words about how strong his and Vikki's love is. Declining a private word, Vikki asks her father to leave - he's no longer welcome in her home. Love doesn't conquer all, Victor warns in parting.
At CL's, Jill gripes about Victor's tacky stunt (and has nothing good to say about Genevieve either). She then leaves Tucker to accost Genevieve on the patio - aren't YOU full of surprises, he glares.
Sharon's groveling to Adam is interrupted by Nick's call (summoning her to NE). Heading for the stairs, Adam gets one more word of praise - your mother would be proud.
Also at the club, Jill informs Kay that the party's over. What happened? Victor happened.
Victor stops by Adam's suite - to discuss his heroics (and question his motives for keeping it quiet). Chelsea told - the truth (though Adam understands why he's skeptical). Adam does stuff for HIMSELF now. Victor wants to believe it - doing good things feels good, doesn't it?
Nikki and Vikki decide they were trying to protect one another (about Victor). Nikki's stunned to hear that Adam's the one who saved Chelsea and the baby. Nikki relays overhearing Chelsea and Victor - the last straw. Jack's the kind of trustworthy man, she wants.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Jack really IS OK about losing BofN. He's focused on getting out of that chair. Yes, he and Nikki are together - taking it slow. Billy's delighted to hear the rest of Jack's body works just fine.
Taking a seat, Tucker scolds Genevieve - throwing away love for power. Cut the crap - he'd have paid more than Victor (and now knows he never stood a chance of getting BofN).
Still in the club's foyer, Jill updates Kay on Jack and Nikki - Victor and Genevieve; a piece of work who drove Collin crazy - then went from Jack to Victor.
Back on the patio, Tucker continues - Genevieve wasn't always like this. Warned off Victor, Genevieve knows what she's doing. Tucker hopes that's true (and leaves her to look worried).
At the office, Victor announces that Nick and Sharon will report to Genevieve. Oh - so getting BofN was more important than honoring his word to Nick and Sharon (who've been sold out to a woman with no experience). You know how business is, Victor 'patronizes'. Plenty of work to go around. Let's get started, Victor says - as Nick and Sharon march out.
Now alone, Vikki's hurt - how can her father think he's protecting her? Billy could have died in that prison - but - how can we be mad at Dad? (if not for Chelsea, they wouldn't have L'il John).
Seated at different tables on the patio, Tucker updates Sofia - Genevieve sold BofN to Victor. This charade was for nothin!? Sofia's pissed.
Still at NE, Nick relays the party to Sharon - Victor let everyone know he's sleeping with Genevieve. Oh - and Mom's with Jack. Both conclude that Victor's up to something. What IS his end game.
At home, Jack's only surprised that it took Genevieve so long to get there.
Victor finds Nikki at the ranch - to chastise him? Nikki feels they should both be ashamed of themselves. Victor's then surprised to hear it was Adam (not Nikki) who told Vikki (about his deal with Chelsea).
At the bar, Adam flashes back to telling Chelsea to keep his heroics a secret. The lady on the next barstool recognizes the 'angel' (who only did what anyone would have). Having overheard, Chelsea thinks it pretty cool. Yeah - guess Adam doesn't mind the world knowing after all.
Abby brought another present - from Billy; Reed! While Vikki introduces him to his baby brother, Billy then updates Abby that Victor paid Chelsea to seduce him - but having the baby makes everything he went through worthwhile.
Genevieve has no regrets - what happened in Vegas was for the best. She believes they coulda had it all - but Jack made his choice. And you made yours, Jack replies. You had your chance and blew it, Genevieve assures that HE'S the one who lost. No - Jack feels they'd BOTH have lost (if they got married).
Why would Adam give that information to Vikki? Nikki doesn't care - she deserves to know. Bonnie interrupts to announce that Nikki's things are all packed up. You left me no choice, Nikki rants about Genevieve. Victor then shouts about JackAbbott. It makes him SICK! Get the hell outta here! Gladly! Nikki will always love Victor - but they have a pathological need to hurt one another. Spare me the analysis, Victor barks. It's over - Nikki slams out.
Joining Jill and Kay at the club (and eyeing Chelsea and Adam at the bar), Abby updates that Reed's back - and that Victor paid Chelsea to ruin Billy and Vikki's marriage. Jill's pissed - that SOB (while Kay concludes that he'll never learn).
Why continue the act? Sofia hates lying to Neil. Tucker just needs a bit more time. His gut tells him it ain't over yet.
Nick and Sharon find Genevieve in Victor's office. She thinks their work great - but .... And when Genevieve announces herself as their boss, Sharon and Nick make it clear they won't take orders from her. She's looking forward to a productive collaboration. We'll see about that, Nick and Sharon pass Victor at the door.
Cue the musical montage - Vikki's deliriously happy with Billy and her sons ....Smiling, Adam and Chelsea clink glasses at the bar ... Nikki goes to Jack's door - turns and pauses for a moment - then heads inside to cuddle with him on the sofa .... Leaving with a smile and a wave, Genevieve leaves Victor not looking too happy at all.
Next: Avery barks at Phyllis - DANIEL has the book Dad gave you?! What the hell is wrong with you!? ... Did you lose a big account? Harmony asks (when Neil joins her at CL's). Someone I trusted let me down, he scowls ... You will never see him or Lucy again, Ricky tells Daisy. Get! Out! she snarls.
My Thoughts: WTH is Jill talking about? Genevieve drove Collin 'crazy'? He's a crime lord - not a hapless victim ... Since Victor's already ruined the party by announcing explosive news (if not just showing up) - why NOT tell Nick that he's now working for Genevieve? And him reacquiring BofN wouldn't be good news for Vikki anyway - she wanted it herself .... Bringing his 'new tramp' to a party he wasn't invited to is bad enough - but then, when Vikki asks to talk to Victor (in HER home), he does his best to get out of it (he and Genevieve have a lot of things to do) - minutes later tho, he asks for a private word with Vikki. Confusing ..... Victor intended to tell Nick privately - but 'it didn't work out that way'. Gee - I wonder why THAT is ... Genevieve's equally (if not more) tacky - she's going back to NE - to 'keep the desk warm', so to speak? Couldn't she have said she was going to look over marketing proposals or sumthin? I didn't notice either of em bringing a gift either .... How the hell would Victor know what it feels like to do 'good things'? And on the flip side, hasn't he realized that doing bad things make one feel 'bad'? ... Sadly, Nikki and Jack's relationship doesn't stand a chance - she's already having second thoughts. But, it'll last longer than Victor's with Genevieve ... Tucker and Sofia playing spy vs spy was beyond comical. Couldn't he have just sent her a text? Funny how he and Genevieve make it sound like they grew up playing in the same sand box as 'kids' (except her sand was in Australia). ... Love how Sharon's all indignant about having to work for a woman with no experience (when she has none herself) ...Understatement of the day goes to Adam; he's given Sharon plenty of reasons not to trust him. Yeah - just a few.
