Jack went to see Christine and put himself on the list of people who could talk about the impact of Victor's crimes. In the course of their discussion, he accused Christine of sounding more like Victor's attorney than the prosecutor bringing him to justice. Christine said that she'd done Jack a favor. If Victor hadn't pled guilty and had been found not guilty at a jury trial, Jack would have had a much harder time getting reparation in a civil suit. Jack said he not only wanted reparation, but he thought Victor should have some time alone in jail to consider the consequences of what he'd done. He wondered if Christine was cut out to be a district attorney, since her personal feelings for Victor were obviously influencing her actions.
When Nick stopped by Victor's office, Victor told him he was too busy to talk to him. Not only did he have a company to run, but he had to prepare for the sentencing phase of his case. Nick said he was there because he wanted to go to court and speak on Victor's behalf. Victor said that he might throw up if Nick did that. He accused Nick of being motivated by a desire for power. Nick denied that, and when Victor told him as soon as his deal with Cameron was complete, he'd be relieving Nick of his duties, Nick said that might take a while. The police had some new leads in Cameron's disappearance. Did Victor want him to go ahead and leave? Victor said no matter what, Nick would never be running the company. Nick said he didn't want to see Victor run it either, and his father ordered him out of his office.
Ashley was reading Abby a book before the Valentine's Day party. Brad watched them and thought about Ashley's relationship with Victor. He wondered if Ashley really meant it when she said that Brad was the most important thing in the world to her. But he simply told Ashley how beautiful she was. Colleen came in and said she needed to talk to them. After Ashley returned from taking Abby upstairs, Colleen explained what Paul and J.T. were doing to try to entrap Kevin. Since Lauren was helping them, it was important that no one at the party confront Kevin. Brad went ballistic, saying this was putting all of them in jeopardy. But Ashley and Colleen finally convinced him to stay composed at the party even if Kevin was there.
Dru was still giving Neil the silent treatment, but he'd finally had enough. He wanted her to put the orchid fiasco behind them. He was sorry he hadn't been able to keep his end of the deal, but he'd tried his best. Now they needed to move on, starting with enjoying Valentine's Day together. Dru finally relented, kissing him, then she told him that Phyllis had given Jabot an orchid. Neil was shocked, but he was willing to move on. After all, Jabot had what they wanted. Dru then reminded him that he needed to keep his cool if he saw Kevin at the Valentine's Day party. It was important to Paul's investigation. Neil said it wouldn't be easy, but he'd try.
J.T. dropped by Crimson Lights and saw Raul, who said he wasn't interested in going to the party with Brittany in the hospital. He told J.T. that she was refusing to speak to him or anyone else because she was so upset about her face. J.T. hoped the scarring wouldn't be permanent. He wouldn't say if he had anything special for Colleen, but insisted that he'd been working so hard he barely had time to go to class. Raul suggested he sing her another song, but J.T. said he was out of practice.
At the Carlton house, Sierra, Lily, and Colleen compared outfits and talked about how they hoped nothing went wrong at the dance. With any luck, Lauren would quickly be able to get the goods on Kevin. When J.T. arrived to pick them up, the three girls told him about visiting Kevin's apartment. At first J.T. was furious, telling them they weren't taking Kevin's danger seriously. Lily said the only thing unusual she'd been able to find in Kevin's apartment was a tool box, some duct tape, and some Styrofoam. None of them knew what that meant. They finally left for the party.
Lauren was startled out of her wits when Kevin appeared behind her at the boutique. While she tried to regain her composure, Kevin said he'd wanted them to ride to the dance together. Lauren put him off, saying that he should warn her before surprising her. Kevin apologized for scaring her and told her that he was crazy about her. Lauren finally managed to put on a good show of being interested in him, and Kevin told her there was one other problem. Some people at the party might say things about him in front of her or to her. He'd had some difficulties with them in his past, but he was moving forward now. Would Lauren's feelings for him be the same no matter what she heard? Lauren assured him that her feelings would go unchanged. So, Kevin wondered, could he drive her to the party?
Paul was baffled by the answers he was getting from Michael. Michael accused him of prying into his personal life, but Paul said he hadn't been. He'd been investigating Kevin. But there had to have been a reason for Kevin's visit to Michael's apartment. Previously, Michael had said that Kevin deserved to pay for what he'd done. Now Michael was suddenly acting like his attorney. Michael said that just because Kevin might have sought legal advice from him, that didn't mean Michael was representing him. But he was beginning to think that Kevin needed a lawyer, since he was being persecuted by all of them when there was no evidence that he'd done anything wrong. Paul said Michael would sell out his mother for the right price. Michael said maybe so, but he wouldn't betray his principles. Frustrated, Paul said there was some kind of connection between them and he was going to find it. Michael finally exploded, telling Paul that Kevin wasn't his client. Kevin Fisher was his brother.
