Sharon's invited Victor to dinner at G-worm - to tell him she's alright (and blab the news that Nick and Phyllis are engaged). You serious? Victor scowls.
Off to a baby themed sleepover party, Summer brightly suggests that her soon to be married parents have another baby. We'll take than under advisement, Nick grins.
Billy clinks Kyle's beer glass -welcome home. But he clearly doesn't think staying at the ranch is 'pretty sweet'.
In his suite, Adam's on the phone - trying to buy shares in Faceplace - with his own money (since the hedge fund was shut down). Along comes Chelsea - who desparately want to grab a bit to eat OUTSIDE these walls. Let's go! Adam's all over it.
Now alone, baby shoes in hand, Phyllis reflects on all the years she was told she couldn't get pregnant. Oh, what a gift. Yes - we'll keep this baby safe, Nick agrees.
Kyle likes Victor. Doing his best impersonation, Billy knows he can be - but anybody who trusts him ends up regretting it. What? Kyle's working at NE? Oh boy - you're in trouble.
Dinner going cold, Victor guesses that Phyllis' pregnancy is the reason she and Nick are getting married. No - he doesn't wanna approach Vikki and Jack (who've just arrived at G-worm). And Billy's bastard son is NOT his grandson.
At their table, Jack eyes Sharon and Victor - wazzup with that? Vikki suggests he's consoling her (re: Nick and Phyllis remarrying). Better him than Adam, Jack guesses.
Sharon likens L'il John to Cassie (whom Victor grew to love). Nick loved her as his own (just as Vikki is). She encourages Victor not to punish an innocent child - he and John would both be missing out. Victor approaches Vikki's table - thinking he might get to know the little boy.
Snarling out a nasty comment, Jack leaves Victor to take a seat - and admire the baby. Yes - he's officially Victor's grandson. Who could resist this face? Vikki coos. Arriving, Adam and Chelsea spot Sharon - but no need to leave. And as Chelsea goes to see how John's doing, Adam thanks Sharon for the birthday card. Clearly not pleased with Chelsea's interruption, Vikki goes to change John - leaving Victor to coldly remind Chelsea that he's no longer her son. And as of now it IS his business.
Sharon hopes Adam didn't read anything into the card - it was just Happy Birthday - that's all. Looking diappointed, Adam's sent back to his date (as dismissed by Victor). Not thrilled that Adam sat with Sharon (instead of getting a table), she sure DOES wanna leave. Pan to a forlorn looking Sharon as the pair huff out.
Back at Jimmy's, Billy ends his call - you need to handle this right now - it's gettin' outta hand. Of COURSE Kyle will think about what he said (about Victor). Another warning - more assurance - Kyle's just there to have fun. And as Kyle makes a beeline for the pretty brunette who walks in, Billy's on the phone again. No - he didn't dial the wrong number - you and I are gonna have a conversation.
The blue blanket Phyllis pulls out does indeed take Nick back in time (to the time Jack first handed baby Summer to Nick; say hello to your little girl). Phyllis then gasps over some chestnuts on a string - another flashback of Nick making a mobile for Summer's crib. Oh how Phyllis loves Nick ~kiss/hug~ It's gonna be so great. Phyllis isn't worried at all - just hungry. Nick gives the obligatory belly kiss. Oh how happy the Newman's are.
Heading back to the office, Victor will send his driver back for Sharon (whom he hugs - before going to say bye to Vikki and L'il John). Sharon then comes over to gush over the cutest little man. So - what's the deal with you and my Dad? Vikki bluntly asks.
Back at Adam's suite, Chelsea's furious - at Victor being welcome in HER baby's life - while she's the fall guy. Adam settles her down with a kiss - which heats up quickly.
What?! No takers!? The ladies at the bar aren't interested in playing darts with Kyle (even when he offers to buy if he loses). I'm in, Jack wheels over - let's see if the old man's still got it.
Waiting in Victor's office, Billy wondered if he'd punked out. Told to stay away from his nephew, Victor gives him a grimace - where Kyle wants to stay is none of Billy's business.
Sharon claims her conversation with Victor no more 'intimate' than usual. Vikki jabs about the 'at loos ends' Sharon latching onto the first available man (with Adam and Nick both moving on) - or 'unavailable' (as the case may be). Choose a man from some other family. Indignant, Sharon thinks Vikki should be saying 'thank you' (for sending Victorover to make a connection with the baby). Having shut Vikki up, Sharon then turns to find herself face to face with Nick and Phyllis. Smiling and congratulating them, Sharon doesn't look so happy when she's alone at the bar.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and Adam take turns being on top - as they hungrily tumble about his bed attached at the lips.
Billy gets it - Victor needs someone new to kick around - how happy he must be that it's Jack's son. Know who's NOT happy he's Jack's son? Jack's son, Victor claims Kyle wishes he belonged to another family. He came to ME. Billy won't let another member of his family get caught in the crossfire; Delia almost died - Colleen DID - what else has to happen for Victor to learn his lesson? Victor finds that rich - from the mouth of a drunk, oversexed adolescent Billy is. Vikki deserves better - and one day soon, she'll see Billy for who he is.
The audience watching - Jack's beating Kyle at darts - the banter leads to Kyle saying Jack lacks decency and loyalty. We can work through this - give us a chance, Jack implores. Some things you can't talk yourself out of, Kyle exits - leaving Jack looking defeated.
Does Vicotr remember how the animosity started? Or does he just hate the name Abbott? Victor respected JOHN Abbott. HE had dignity, self respect etc. Re: Lucy, Vikki pined away for Billy (who ran off to engage in debauchery). Of course he didn't resist Chelsea. Victor then goes back to Billy passing Delia off as another man's child. He better look in the mirror - and pray no man like HIM ever crosses her path. When Kyle arrives, Billy asks him to turn down Victor's job offer. He'll get him a better job - a better place to live. Alas, Kyle's gonna stick with his plan. OK - make you bed - go lie in it, Billy exits. Not needing an apology from Kyle, Victor suggests he not pay attention to his Uncle Billy. He's welcome to stay at the ranch as long as he likes.
The service slow, Phyllis goes to get drinks - giving Vikki a chance to whine to Nick about the possibility of Sharon putting the moves on Dad. Nick can't believe it - certain lines don't get crossed.
At the bar, Sharon's ears perk up when Phyllis orders a 7&7 and a ginger ale. Are you pregnant? Sharon scoffs that the proposal came before knowing about the baby. Sounding very confident, Phyllis is sure that Nick's over Sharon - in fact, everyone is. Clearly bested, a vulnerable looking Sharon exits quickly.
Chelsea (wearing Adam's shirt) and Adam are enjoy chips and beer in bed. Jumping up to get her ringing phone, Chelsea's surprised - it's your Dad!
Returning from the bathroom, Phyllis quietly tells Nick they need to go - I'm spotting.
At Billy's, Jack reports things didn't go well with Kyle. Billy had no luck either - and drops the bomb that Kyle's working for Victor too. Jack concludes that Kyle will have to find out for himself what the Black Knight's all about. Vikki hopes they get through to Kyle - then squirms when warned not to let Victor anywhere near L'il John. He stopped by the table for a little visit, she admits - adding that Victor was kinda sweet with him. Billy thinks they need to discuss boundaries. No way in hell that jackass is having anything to do with his son.
Answering Victor's call, Chelsea's told it's time for her to leave GC. But she's starting to like it here. She'd like a lot of other places - especially with 10 million dollars. Chelsea will need to think about that. She then updates Adam - what would HE do with ten million? Turn it into a hundred million.
A flustered Sharon shows up at Victor's office - needing to see him - one of the few poeple who don't see her as weak. You take me seriously. Yes - what's this about? Victor's puzled. Sharon just wanted to let Victor know how much she appreciates him (by giving him a big kiss).
Next: I don't want you to go, Neil whispers at Harmony .... Am I interrupting something? Nikki obviously suspects she has (perhaps by how guilty Sharon looks) ... Jack's stunned - Gen and Tucker? No! Are you sure? Ashley's positive - obviously they didn't think it was worth mentioning.
My Thoughts: What - wait? Billy knows Kyle 'learned a lot these past few years on his own'? Funny - cause I coulda sworn he was only learning the art of the slap shot - at hockey camp - for a few months .... Why was Summer wrapped in a BLUE blankie anyway? .... Nick claims certain lines don't get crossed? Like what? It's certainly not shaggin' your ex's sister - or your father's wife - or you wife's BFF. And is he forgetting that Sharon and Victor have already been married? Clearly SHE doesn't mind crossing lines.... Er - Chelsea very recently gave birth. And while sex isn't totally out of the question, it would be less um messy in a few weeks. Housekeeping will be in for a treat (though of course Adam's no stranger to mopping up thighs and disposing of bloodied towels). You'd think a shower would take priority over chips and beer in bed .... Why is Vikki defending her father? Has she already gotten over her outrage at all he's done to her? .... Good grief. Is it any wonder that people see Sharon as pathetic and weak? That she's not 'taken seriously'? Heartbreak and rejection isn't easy; we all get that - but grow up already - curl up in the fetal position in a tattered robe and forego showering for a few days - like the rest of us - eat a tub of ice cream and sob over chick flicks - but do NOT 'latch onto the first available man' (as Vikki so accurately predicted). Sharon needs to be able to survive without a man to validate her existence - to 'like' herself' (before she can have a successful relationship). And if she truly can't function without a man for 5 minutes, can't she expand her horizons? Join a dating site - troll Home Depot's tool aisle - join a bowling or dart league - go speed dating. But for God's sake - don't throw yourself at your children's grandfather! It's beyond repulsive (my pity to Sharon fans; why the writers don't just kill the character off - as opposed to slowly destroying her, I'll never know).
