Sharon cares about Nick. Which means she may not be objective re: Summer's paternity. If Nick needed your help, he'd ask for it, Dr Watkins thinks she should pretend she didn't hear it - for her sake and Nick's.
Chelsea stammers excuses - but Dylan really wants to see/hear the baby's heartbeat.
Is this punishment? No - it's survival. But Kevin doesn't see how selling their primary source of income will alleviate debt. We need to pay back the bank. It better not be illegal, Chloe flips - Mike won't give him a break next time (and neither will she) When Dylan returns with Chelsea, Kevin says he'll call him (with numbers) - and Chelsea's to call Dylan with her appointment time.
Bumping into Nick, Sharon informs that she was seeing her therapist (it's nice to have someone to talk to). Despite being outside the lab, Nick claims he's there for an annual physical. Sharon wants to ask him something ...
Sharon's been thinking about what he said yesterday - the decision he regretted. Nick doesn't recall. Well, she's there if he needs to talk. Thanks - but I'm good, Nick hurries off.
The three of us can run NE together - Vikki's committed to the company and family. Adam thinks Victor optimistic - or naive. On cue, Vikki drops by. She and Adam go at it until Victor politely asks them to knock it off.
At the gym, Dylan tells Billy that he's quitting OTB to run his own business. Warned how hard it is, Dylan says his Dad managed fine. He has a feeling things are gonna work out.
Back at CL's, Kevin grumbles about a lady who comes in selling flowers (annoying all two of his customers). Recognizing Madam Miranda, Chelsea will pay well to hear everything she knows about her baby's father.
Holding hands across the table, Madam Miranda repeats; the baby's father wants to be in the baby's life - the man's been hurt. No, not the man at the fair; someone who loves you deeply - who wants nothing more than to have a child with you. He regrets the pain he caused - wants to make things right. Chelsea doesn't know anyone like that - he doesn't exist. Ignoring reality won't make it go away - ignoring a man with goodness in his heart is foolish.
Takes two to call a truce - Adam's willing, is Vikki? Sweetheart? Victor nudges. As Adam takes a call, Vikki's again suspicious. Perhaps it's a personal matter, Victor hints that she's paranoid and asks her to be a team player.
You look like hell, Billy greets Nick (who does NOT want to talk about it - he just wants to punch the bag until all his problems go away).
Nick? Nick? Walking into the tackhouse, Phyllis calls out that she left a message for Summer - the sooner we talk to her the better. Sharon comes downstairs - are you sure now's the right time to talk to Summer about this?
When Vikki confronts Adam for sneaking off to take calls, Victor asks her to find common ground with her brother (not constantly attack him) Mentioning the 1.5 billion lawsuit, Adam admits he's done terrible things - but he also delivered the baby Vikki's raising (and took a bullet for Dad). Billy Boy lies to you all the time, Victor orders them to work together. And when Vikki chooses Billy over NE, Victor bellows as she exits - that's NOT what I wanted to hear!
At work, Chloe scoffs that 'Madam Morticia' (who sells flowers at CL's) insists that Chelsea belongs with Adam. Chloe can be 'very specific' too for $20 - stay with Dylan! Chelsea worries he'll see how big the baby is (at the ultra sound) and know she's lying. Chloe tells her to stay strong - don't let Adam or that freak get to you.
Nick told you? Sharon 'found out'. Realizing Phyllis and Nick's plan is to talk to Summer about Cassie's death, Sharon backpeddals - oh - that's fine. What did Sharon THINK Phyllis meant? Oh nothing. Running upstairs to get Faith ready, Sharon leaves Phyllis looking very suspicious.
Dylan and Billy watch Nick punching the bag - and his bad day is about to get worse. What are the odds of this? Adam appears to quip - me interrupting a meeting of the Adam Newman fan club.
