Gloria didn’t call Kevin because she likes to make an entrance. She’s there to see Milo of course. Miles, Chloe corrects. Gloria’s vague when answering questions about her film work in Hollywood, then follows Chloe upstairs to see Bella. At least SHE won’t question my sincerity.

Billy speaks so glowingly of Lily that Jack warns him not to mix romance with business and isn’t convinced by his brother’s denial.
Devon wishes Elena had told him a teenager almost died at the clinic the other night. Hearing it was Jared, he’s even more perplexed. Elena’s tears finally spill. I can’t do this anymore, she bolts. Now questioning Nate, Devon’s told it was an emotional night – I’ll go check on Elena. No, I’ll go check on her, Devon marches off.

Still at ChanceCom, Lily’s animated as she rattles on about business. Asking about Billy’s night with Jack, she can relate to losing a Mother who’s larger than life. Hearing about the necklace, she beiieves it might bring love and is left to look lovestruck when Billy gies to get some work done.
