At the bar, Adam assumes that Billy and Phyllis are already spreading the word – he’s not Jack’s son and is stepping down as CEO. I’ll be damned – no, Victor didn’t know. You won’t be seeing much of my around anymore – the gun you planted will be my undoing. I’ll be arrested for obstruction. Except Jack’s communicating with Phyllis – he’ll wake up and tell the truth about what happened the night of the shooting. Yes, Victor’s sure he’ll set the record straight.

Kyle and Summer race in. Good to see you son – you too Kiddo, Jack smiles. He knows they have questions – he heard a lot of what they said in that room. Victor was telling the truth – I had a gun in the park – he shot me in self defense. Everyone looks baffled by the revelation.

Next: Maybe I am seething with jealousy, Vikki hisses at Abby – overnight you stole my ex and my title almost as if you planned it! … You had a DNA test done – you slept with Gabe didn’t you? Nick sounds defeated (Sage terrified) … Jack bellows at Adam – You want a life with Chelsea!? Keep your mouth shut and follow MY orders!

My Thoughts: What the hell is the ‘Paragon Project’? Are we now going to be given some bogus reason that can justify Victor’s actions. How ludicrous. Dear Lord, let Victor be held responsible for his despicable actions, just once. I don’t care what Jack had planned, I care about the plans Victor DID carry out – he was not held accountable for gaslighting Sharon (cruel enough without using her dead daughter’s twin) Victor ‘protecting’ his company and his family has caused grief to Courtney’s family as well as his own. This is the second time he’s used someone’s mental illness against them (Patty, then Kelly) Would Ben grovel to TGVN if he knew how he used and mistreated his sister Kelly? That the ashes I’m not sure he ever got around to collecting weren’t even hers? Perhaps Ben could have used his connections to get Kelly the help she needed. She wasn’t always psychotic. Victor manipulated her .. It is a bit odd that a car can skid off the road, into a lake, without anyone noticing. How many vehicles are sitting at the bottom of Lake Delaney … Are we supposed to believe that Kevin, who’s terrified of enclosed spaces, will be comfortable in deep, murky water, in full scuba gear? I think NOT.
