Michael continued to try to get details from Victor, but Victor continued to be elusive. Michael pointed out that Victor has never liked him, and Victor agreed, telling him there was room for snakes in the world, too. He went on to say he could respect him without liking him, and Michael agreed that was fair. He did make clear, however, that he needed to be respected from everyone around him; he had no intention of taking abuse day after day. Victor agreed that was a fair request, and also offered Michael double his hourly rate to take the position-under the condition that whatever he says, goes. Michael agreed, but told him that he would protect his law license at all costs. Victor said that it wouldn't be in jeopardy, unless, of course, Michael did anything stupid or careless. Michael told Victor they had a deal, and signed the agreement. With that, Victor told him if he called Michael, he expected him to drop everything to come, and Michael agreed, but said he thought he just signed a deal with the devil.

Lily and her friends anxiously awaited the arrival of Lily's online boyfriend. When he walked in and was good looking, Lily got cold feet and was afraid to talk to him. He waited up at the counter and talked to Cody for a while before Cody told him he thought he had gotten stood up. As Lily worked up the nerve to speak to him and started her approach, Dru and Neil came busting in and whisked her out to the patio to talk. They told her excitedly they had chosen a wedding date, and were quite surprised at her response. She told them their getting married again was her worst nightmare, that she thought they were rushing and that they were totally disregarding her feelings. She told them her friends were waiting for her, and she just didn't want to deal with all of this right now. Neil told her he was sorry they caught her so off guard and that they would talk with her later.
When she went back into the coffee house, she got the news that he friend had left. Colleen and Sierra weren't sure if they should try to stop him or not, so they didn't approach him.

He wrote back, "You say you are sorry, but I know you aren't...but you will be."
Sharon told Nick she was sorry he had to come to her rescue during her problems with Nikki. He told her Nikki had gone too far and he had no choice but to tell her she wasn't welcome in their home. Sharon told him she didn't want to come between him and his family-it was obvious that Nikki's heart was breaking. She went on to say the two of them had come a long way in a short period of time. He told her it was hard to have her in the house without having certain feelings, but reminded her his focus was on the children. He told her he thought she was doing an amazing job with them, and she told him she felt she was making leeway with Noah, but not Cassie. He offered to help and told her they should pose a united front to Cassie when she was ready. He had to leave, but before he did, Sharon told him she planned to cook a special dinner that night. He said he would be there.
Nikki burst into Jack's office, clearly upset and raving about Nick. Jack guessed that Sharon and Nick had reconciled and Nikki was surprised that he guessed right. He reminded Nikki the couple had strong sexual chemistry and not much would interfere with that. Nikki confessed that he real concern was that Sharon was trying to take her place as the Queen Bee at the ranch and further, that she wanted Victor as well. Jack tried to reassure her it wouldn't happen, and told her there was no way she would lose Victor over this. He encouraged her not to fight over this, and to just immerse herself in her work to get her mind off of it.
