Mariah continues to scold Kyle – Summer’s NOT sorry. Lola’s jealous of my past with Summer. We ran into each other, we didn’t plan it. Kyle now thinks he’s not the one for Lola. Let her move on then (though Mariah thinks she’s the best thing that ever happened to Kyle) If you love her, make it work. Now, before it’s too late.
Mike tells Victor what to expect tomorrow. We must do this by the book – get your affairs in order. There must be something we can do, Nick and Nikki chime in, No, Victor won’t change his plea. This recording undermines our case that there’s no evidence JT’s dead. What can Mike possibly say? This is as good as a confession. It’s time to make some tough decisions.
Mariah’s at CL’s to ask Sharon why people stay with people who are bad for them (this has nothing to do with me and Tessa) Making bad choices is habit, Sharon has a long list of reasons. Craving what’s bad for us is like an addiction. Hopefully, one of the two people breaks free and finds the person they’re meant to be with. On cue, Rey pauses on his way past.
Lola leaves seconds before Kyle arrives on the patio looking for her.
Victor won’t plead guilty to a crime he didn’t commit. You could face life in prison, Mike wants to look at the options – there’s no other suspects. You won’t plead self-defense or temporary insanity. He also warns that Chris could press charges against Nick too. Mike exits to get busy; he’ll be up all night working on Victor’s defense. That leaves Nick to hug his Mom and his Dad (who’s confident and proud to have Nick at his side)
Getting an encouraging text from Abby, Lola’s at the club looking at a photo of Kyle on her phone. At home, Kyle gets a text from Summer (who wants to have drinks soon) Sounds good, he types with a sigh.
Victor and Nikki are both glad that Nick’s on their side. We’ll talk soon, he leaves Victor to coo at Nikki – my baby, we’ve just begun to fight. Anything is possible if we stick together. Even if you get punished for my crime? Nikki wonders. It’ll be a cold day in hell before Victor lets JT take them down.
