** Oops. Had a power outage due to high winds and when power came back on, I forgot to hit the ‘publish’ button! Better late than never!

After putting Dominic to bed for the night, Abby comes down to candles and champagne. She and Chance have this big house all to themselves.

Also having their place to themselves, Amanda’s cooked Devon a surprise gourmet dinner (Moses is watching football with Nate)

At TGP, Noah reluctantly joins Adam at the bar for a drink.

Nick got a text from Mom – what’s the emergency. Victor has no idea. Nikki marches in – I’ll tell you what it’s about – the tension between you two has to end!

Nikki’s sorry not sorry and Victor’s OK with her tricking them (Nick, not so much, but he hasn’t been avoiding his Father, just busy) When Victor boasts about Adam neutralizing BillyBoy, Nick complains about him pitting his children against one another.

Back at the bar, Noah and Adam chat about Sally, and Chelsea’s return. Adam will leave romance to others more successful at it.

Continuing to enjoy their evening, Abby and Chance are joined at the lips and shedding clothes in a hurry.

Devon again thanks Amanda for being so cool with Dominic staying with them. She finds his nurturing side sexy as hell. Devon’s happy that Chance is home so things can go back to normal. Amanda encourages him to share how he feels. I miss him so much it hurts, Devon admits.

Snuggling on the sofa, Chance regrets the way he left Abby. It was his duty – but it also may have had something to do with us.

Victor will always be there for his support. Nick knows that support is conditional; Vic and Abby run businesses you approve of – in marriages you approve of. And Adam, he’s loyal. One of them will soon make a decision you don’t like and be on the outside (as Nick is)

Chance hates feeling that he let Abby down. No, he’s not the perfect husband – I failed you. Abby’s just so happy that Chance is home. Dominic is such a gift.
