The two of them sparred for a few minutes about Jack, then Victor (Phyllis claimed to be his confidante; Diane told her that Victor had summoned her to the ranch but wouldn't say why), then the subject of Damon came up. When Phyllis found out that Damon had once asked Diane out, she assured Diane that she wasn't Damon's type. Diane said that Phyllis was obviously trying to wallpaper over the mistakes of her past with another man. When Damon called Phyllis and asked her to join him at the athletic club restaurant for dinner, Diane asked if that was "Wallpaper" calling.
At the restaurant, Damon said that he heard Phyllis had put on her brave face when she'd seen Jack. But he said he didn't want her to ever feel that she had to do that for him.

In L.A., J.T. and Shiloh went to a recording session. Afterward, J.T. was subjected to a press conference.

On her way to L.A., Colleen called Sierra a couple of times to remind her to cover for her with her father.

Sierra scolded Colleen for having second thoughts about surprising J.T., and Colleen finally agreed that going to L.A. was a good idea. She arrived at Beachfront Records just in time to catch the tail end of J.T.'s press conference. Instead of saying no comment, when the reporters asked if he had a girlfriend, J.T. miserably said no.

The next time he was asked, he was going to tell the truth about Colleen, whether or not Shiloh liked it.
Nikki hadn't talked to Victor all day, after he'd spent the night away from her in the guest room, so she was in no mood to hear Sharon discuss her problems with Grace. Sharon asked Nikki what was wrong, and Nikki said Victor knew that Abby was his daughter. Sharon was sorry to see Nikki so upset, and Nikki said she probably regretted not having any leverage over her anymore. Sharon denied that, saying that in the long run, Victor knowing about Abby could be a good thing. Nikki just needed to give him time to let everything sink in. Nikki said she didn't want to give Victor time without having heard her side of the story. She was appalled when Sharon told her she'd made up her mind. In order for her to have any peace, she had to see Cameron's body. Nikki tried to reason with her, insisting that she was merely having hallucinations and Cameron had to be dead. Sharon said the only way she'd know was by seeing the body -- and she asked if Nikki would go with her to see it.
Nikki can't believe Sharon wants her to go with her to see Cameron's body. She says no way. Nikki asks Sharon if Victor had confided anything to her. Sharon says her and Victor haven't talked in a long while. Nikki looks at Sharon and asks her if she'll be there for her. Sharon seems very endearing and promises to help Nikki in any way she can.

Nikki realizes that that's not what she really wants; she's just feeling at the end of her rope. She also decides that Sharon can't go alone to see Cameron's body-she will go with her.

At Christine's apartment, Phyllis and Christine bickered over Phyllis's desire to see Daniel. Phyllis blamed Christine because she'd lost custody of him in the first place. During the course of their argument, Christine encouraged Phyllis to threaten her, since that would give her a legal reason to make sure Phyllis didn't come near any of them. She had work to do and she was tired; she asked Phyllis to please leave. She'd talk to Daniel and Danny about what Phyllis wanted, because when Phyllis wasn't being her own worst enemy, Christine actually hoped she and Daniel could work out their relationship. After directing a few more insults at Christine, Phyllis finally walked out with the promise that she'd be back.

Bobby came to see Brittany, but she refused to talk about singing. When she expressed how tired she was of friends telling her what to do or how to feel, Bobby said she was right. No one needed friends to try to pull them out of a bad time. Therefore he was leaving. Brittany apologized and said she didn't mean to drive him away, but Bobby just said for her to give him a call sometime and let him know how she was, then he walked out.
Larry directed Nikki and Sharon to a sewer drain close to the Lakeside Bar, which is where he'd dumped Cameron's body.

They finally found the sheet-wrapped body, ran the rats away, and Larry pulled back the sheet. Sharon screamed and fainted in Nikki's arms.
