Neil told a contemplative Lily that he was sorry for getting home later than he'd expected. Lily admitted that she hadn't been alone; Olivia had come to see her. When Neil wondered if she was there as Lily's aunt, Lily said no---as her doctor. She confessed that she had lied to her parents about something. She and Kevin hadn't use condoms, and now she had a sexually transmitted disease. After an initial explosion, Neil was relieved to hear that Lily hadn't tested positive for HIV and wasn't pregnant. She was taking an antibiotic for chlamydia. After Neil agreed to keep the news from Dru, for now, he asked Lily for a favor. He wanted to go to the police and file charges against Kevin. Lily said she'd have to think about that.
Colleen was working out near J.T. at the athletic club when she kept flashing back on her ordeal at the fire. J.T. tried to comfort her, but Colleen couldn't shake her bad memories. She was even having nightmares. If Kevin had really done that to her... J.T. interrupted and said Kevin had done that to her; there was no question. They arranged to meet at Crimson Lights later, but when J.T. arrived, he found only Sierra studying for a test.
Colleen was going through the burned down Gina's Restaurant with a flashlight, horrified by how destroyed it was. She went back to the cooler and remembered being locked in. Distressed, she turned to leave, only to come face to face with Kevin. As she tried to maneuver around him, Kevin insisted that she listen to him. He said he wasn't responsible for the fire and hadn't tried to kill her. Even the police couldn't prove anything; they'd returned his laptop to him after finding no evidence on it. Colleen said of course he'd destroyed the evidence, but even if the police didn't get him, karma would. When Kevin appeared more menacing, Colleen backed down. She said she was just worried about Lily. Kevin wasn't buying it, but he did have a message for Lily. There was a restraining order against him, so Lily should make no attempt to see him. Colleen managed to get to the front of the restaurant then screamed back at him that he would pay for what he'd done.
J.T. and Sierra were relieved when Colleen arrived at Crimson Lights, but J.T. was upset to hear that Colleen had gone by Gina's. It was even worse when he found out that Kevin had confronted her there. As Colleen sobbed with fear against his chest, Sierra watched them with a worried look.
At the health club, Victor tried to talk reasonably with Nick, who remained cold to his father. Victor insisted that everything he'd ever done had been for his family. He couldn't understand Nick's disrespectful attitude. Had he no appreciation for all his father had given him? Victor was proud of Nick; why was Nick so contemptuous of his father? When Nick asked if Victor really thought he should emulate all of Victor's behavior, Victor had heard enough. He said that he could no longer mentor his son. Nick asked if he wasn't even interested in what his son was thinking, and Victor ordered him out of his sight, confirming Nick's accusation that Victor only wanted to talk, never to listen.
Michael was less than pleased to hear that Phyllis seemed to know something about his and Victor's nefarious activities during the Safra rollout. Although he managed not to give her details, he couldn't believe that Victor had been foolish enough to trust Jack's wife with any information. Phyllis said that she wasn't going to tell Jack. In fact, she intended to be a friend to Victor if Nick caused trouble. But both Victor and Michael were apparently in a lot of trouble if Nick really knew anything of substance. After she left Michael alone in the office, Nick came in. Michael wanted to know what Nick thought he knew. Nick toyed with him, saying that didn't Michael understand that if he had an ace up his sleeve that would destroy Baldwin, he'd use it?
Victoria was annoyed when Sharon came in when it was nearly time for the family meeting that Nikki had called. She suggested that Sharon leave at once. Sharon said that it was typical of Victoria to side with her mother without even hearing Sharon's thoughts on what was going on with the family. She knew that Victor was troubled by Nick's behavior, and Sharon thought there was reason for alarm. She'd never seen Nick so angry, and she was on the same side as Victoria. She didn't want Nick to do anything to tear the family apart. When Victoria pressed her for details about Nick's plans, Sharon admitted that she didn't know any specifics. She was just worried about the whole thing. Nikki came in and thanked Victoria for being there, then ordered Sharon to leave. Victoria intervened, telling her mother that she thought Sharon should stay.
Christine was shocked that Paul intended to move out just because she couldn't accept his proposal. She insisted that her hesitation wasn't because of what happened the night of Ricky's christening. She just needed time to sort through her feelings. Paul said that Christine might be able to settle for friendship, but he couldn't live there as her friend. He wanted more, and it was torture for him to be there and not be able to share a bed or his life with her. So moving out was the best solution for him. Christine begged for his forgiveness. Paul said there was nothing to forgive, then left.

Colleen told Sierra and J.T. that Kevin showed up when she went to Gina's. J.T. was enraged and tried to leave to find Kevin but Colleen convinced him to stay. She told J.T. that she doesn't want things to get worse than they already are. Colleen said that Kevin didn't do anything to hurt her; he just wanted to give her a message for Lily. Lily showed up in the middle of their conversation. While at first it was a little awkward, Colleen and Sierra wanted Lily to stay. J.T. said he would leave them alone. Lily told Colleen that she was sorry she didn't visit her in the hospital, and that she was sorry for the way she had treated them. Lily said that seeing her parents look at her that way really hurt her. She realized now how much her parents cared for her. Colleen said that her dad wants Kevin to pay for what he did, but Lily might have to testify against him. Lily said she would do whatever it took to make sure Kevin gets what he has coming to him.
Kay and Esther have dinner at the club to visit with Gina. Gina is happy about her new job and says she doesn't know what she'd do without John's help. Kay says John is a good man. Esther can't stop complaining about Kay letting Jill stay in that house. Gina says Jill will soon realize that she misses Kay and will soon feel all alone. Esther doesn't think so; she tells Kay if she thinks Jill will come around, she's lost her marbles.
Jill wants her decorator to change the entire house before Christmas. Larry comes in and tells Jill that she has changed ever since Kay left. Jill doesn't think so; she says the only thing that has changed is that she is now free, and that she wants the house to feel more like herself, and be more modern. Jill has her own chef now, a good-looking male. Larry doesn't seem too happy about it. When Jill tells Larry she wants a drink, Larry thinks she is moving too fast. Jill tries to comfort him, and after they share dinner she sends the chef home, and tells Larry they have the whole house to themselves now. As they begin to make love in the living room, Kay walks in unannounced.
Kevin is yelling on the phone about Bobby's taxes. After he gets his aggressions out, Kevin goes over to his computer and smiles. As he starts chatting online, he thinks about when he convinced Lily to prove her love by having sex with him. It's so easy, Kevin says aloud, as he chats with a teen about music. He asks her when they can meet to talk about it more. She says she would like that. Kevin apologizes out loud and starts deleting the information on the computer so Detective Weber can't find it. Kevin hears a knock on the door. J.T. screams at Kevin, telling him that he told Kevin to stay away from Colleen. He tells Kevin that he's going down.
Michael tries to get Nick to talk about all the rumors going on about Safra. Michael says he felt intimidated when Nick told him that he was on to him at the Gala. Nick says if he knew something he would have already done something about it. When Nick leaves, Michael wonders if Nick really doesn't know anything. On the other side of the door, Nick says aloud that he wouldn't tell Michael anything when he has a thorough lawyer to do it for him.
Sharon is upset that Nikki wont let her stay for the family meeting. Victoria realizes that Sharon might be a help in calming Nick, and convinces Nikki to let her stay. Nikki finally gives in and goes upstairs to change. Nick shows up and tells Victoria and Sharon that he has something to tell them. He wants to warn them that he has done something that will affect Victor and the family in the next couple of weeks. As Victoria angrily demands to know what Nick has done against her father, Victor comes in before they can discuss it any further. Nikki walks in and they begin the family meeting. Victor tells everyone that his father is alive, and although Nikki thinks he should go to see him, he refuses to.

At the Newman ranch, Victoria agreed with her mother that Victor should go and see his dying father. Victor said he'd have closure when that man was six feet under. Nikki said something good might come of the visit, and Victoria reminded him of their recent conversation about the importance of family. Sharon interceded, saying that her father, too, had abandoned his family before he died. If she could have just fifteen minutes with him to get some answers, she'd take that. Maybe Victor didn't feel the same way, but he should at least consider what Nikki was advising him to do. Nick told them to leave him alone. Victor obviously wanted nothing to do with his father, and Nick could understand his feelings. Victoria jumped on Nick for his disloyalty and anger, and the two began to fight. Victor interrupted. If seeing Albert Miller would bring any peace to this war that was going on in the Newman family, he'd go to Toronto to see him on one condition. He wanted Nick to go with him.
After Katherine interrupted yet another attempt by Jill and Larry to have sex on the couch, Jill accused her of having lied. She'd known her mother hadn't really meant to leave her alone on the Chancellor estate. Katherine denied it, but said she hadn't expected Jill to redecorate it to look like a brothel. When Larry sided with Katherine about the way Jill was acting, Jill stomped out of the house. Katherine noticed Jill's half-filled liquor glass and wondered if Jill was drinking alone a lot. Larry said he didn't think Jill had a problem, but Katherine confessed that she was an alcoholic. She'd once drunk herself into oblivion in that house, alienating everyone who loved her. She worried that her daughter might be repeating an old pattern. She wanted Larry to keep an eye on Jill. Larry didn't know if that was going to happen, because he and Jill were not as close as they used to be.
Jill stopped by the athletic club to brood about Katherine and have another drink. At the bar, she met Bobby Marsino. The two flirted a bit, then Jill invited him back to her place. When Bobby commented that she didn't waste any time, she said that she wasn't coming on to him. It had been a long time since she'd made a new friend. She wanted to continue to drink and talk, but didn't want to drive after she'd been drinking. Bobby agreed to go home with her and paid for their drinks.
When Brad went to pick up coffee and a sandwich from Crimson Lights, he told Colleen that he'd been at the hospital and Ashley was coming around. Then he joined her at the table where she'd been sitting with Lily and Sierra. He was glad to see the three girls working things out. Lily apologized to him for being so stupid about Kevin, and Brad said he was just glad he was off the streets. Colleen had to tell him that Kevin hadn't been arrested. There'd been no evidence found at Gina's to implicate him, and the hard drive on his computer had been wiped clean. Enraged, Brad told the girls to go to the Carlton house and lock the doors. He was going to do something about Kevin.
At Kevin's, J.T. burst in and told Kevin he was going down. Kevin tried to get out of the apartment but J.T. blocked him. Then Kevin reached for the phone and J.T. hurled it across the room. After throwing a few punches at Kevin, he had him down on the couch when Detective Weber showed up. Kevin wanted J.T. arrested for assaulting him, and J.T. said he'd been set up. Weber took both of them to the police station to get their statements. When Brad came in, demanding that the police arrest Kevin for attempting to kill Colleen, Weber said they had no evidence. J.T. again accused Kevin of setting him up. He knew that J.T. would come after him once he heard what had happened. Brad was shocked to hear that Colleen had gone to Gina's and been scared out of her wits when Kevin confronted her there. Weber kept him from going after Kevin again. The detective then told Kevin that he'd pursued smarter men than him. They always made a mistake, and he always got his man. He then read J.T. his rights and told Kevin to leave. Brad stopped Kevin, warning him that he hadn't gotten away with anything. When he closed his eyes at night, he should remember that a very angry father was after him.
Phyllis stopped by to see Michael, who assured her that her fears about Nick were unfounded. Nick had nothing on him; if he had, he'd have already used it. As the two talked, Michael inadvertently revealed that the work he'd done for Victor involved bribing retailers for premium shelf space. Phyllis gloated for a minute that she'd gotten him to confess, but she said that Jack wasn't going to learn it from her. She asked Michael to dinner, but he had too much work on his desk now that his partner had left the firm to work for the D.A.'s office. After Phyllis warned him to be good and left, Michael immersed himself in work. When he finally looked up, he was startled to have a visitor. He asked when he'd gotten into town, and Kevin said, "Hello, big brother. Long time no see."
