Still at Underground, Summer worries about Faith; she’s scared and alone because Sharon ripped her family apart. Reminding that Summer ran off after that Kyle fiasco, Phyllis is sure Nick will find Faith. As they hug, Austin’s pouts at the mention of Kyle.

At the tackhouse, Paul sends a cop off to search for Faith, then questions Nick and Sharon (who blames Nick for Faith being terrified) You’re hurting our child!

Nick retaliates – you wanna do this? You lied to Faith – you told her I was punishing you. Sharon’s pissed – you’ ARE using her to punish me. And you’re using her as a human shield, Nick rants – YOU did this to all of us – dragging Noah back into it. YOU don’t know how to put your kids first. YOU tried to make us think Adam wasn’t a threat – after stealing our child and letting us think she was dead. But this happened on YOUR watch – and Sharon will let the Judge know. Paul’s had enough. Call around and don’t kill each other, he goes to help search.

Chelsea runs into Avery at the club. Could she look over Adam’s probate paperwork? Sure, he was a friend and client. Updated on the fight to save the warehouse district, Chelsea’s happy to see Avery’s engagement ring. We’re all getting a fresh start.

Billy notes that Jack was giving Gabriel the look he usually saves for Victor. There’s similarities, Jack admits – and he’s already ‘played the friendship card’. Billy tells Jack to trust his gut, then shows him a photo of Katie and expresses how happy he is. Left alone for a minute, Jack pulls out a petition for Guardianship (of Connor)

Meanwhile, at Delia’s roadside memorial, Adam tells her how sorry he is. Choking up, Adam feels he’s paid (by losing his wife and son) I hope you didn’t suffer. There’s a little boy Adam wants to get to know – my son needs me. I don’t want to hurt anyone – I just want to live my life. I hope you understand.

Still at Underground, Summer frets to Austin; listing places Faith could have gone. They lock up to go search.

Phyllis goes home to Jack; Faith’s missing – Summer’s a wreck. What’s that? Guardianship of Connor? Jack’s not sure Adam ever had a chance in life (due to Victor) But why is Jack looking at the paperwork now?

Adam quietly lets himself into the penthouse; smells Connor’s blankie, admires the 1st Christmas ornament (then slips into the closet as Chelsea returns home) Cracking the door, he watches Chelsea put gifts under the tree.

Chelsea’s distracted from the closet when Billy returns to the penthouse – with a gift. Adam listens to the banter – then a giggling race upstairs to bed.

At the club, Avery ends a call to gush about her love for Dylan. Everyone deserves a second chance – like us (and Chelsea). Dylan then gets a call (seems they won’t be meeting the mayor after all) The fight just got tough again.

After looking everywhere, Summer and Austin are back at Underground. Promise me we’ll never get a divorce; never put our own kids through this, Summer whimpers.

Paul rejoins Nick and Sharon. There’s bicycle tracks up to the main road – we’re widening the search. Faith will be home soon. Sharon’s terrified – someone could have grabbed her. Bad things happen on the road at night; Delia. Nick points out that Faith is not Cassie or Delia. Dylan found her last time she took off. Sharon flashes back to happier times; her and Nick reading a book to Faith.
