Arthur Hendricks returned to Katherine's house, saying that he knew he'd vowed at the intervention to walk away from her, but he hadn't been able to get her out of his mind since. In fact, he wanted to stay there with her and help her work through her problems with the bottle. Katherine explained that she'd been away in rehab and right now was clean and sober. But she was thrilled to see Arthur again. She wanted to know how she could ever atone for the mess she'd made and all the ways she'd hurt him. Arthur suggested there was a way; would she marry him?
Jill had a meeting with the CEO of Chancellor Industries, Elliot Hampton. Whenever she tried to get any details from him about the business, Elliot brushed her off. Jill said he had nothing to fear from her. She was only trying to keep pressure off of her mother by overseeing her interests in the company. When Elliot couldn't seem to deflect her interest by his qualifications, he tried a different approach. Ever since meeting her, he said, he'd been interested in her as a beautiful, interesting woman. He'd hoped perhaps they could go out. Jill seemed a little skeptical of his compliments. After she left, Elliot made a phone call, ordering someone to inundate Jill with the kind of paperwork that would keep her from getting any real information. Clearly, he had something to hide.
Jack was tickled to come home and find his father giving Gloria a tour of the house. Gloria was obviously dazzled by the Abbott estate, and John seemed to be really enjoying her company, although she was evasive when he asked where her sons lived. Jack urged them to take a dip in the pool and a look at the gardens. After they left, Jill arrived to talk to him. She described her distrust of Elliot and wanted Jack's help. Jack said it sounded too much like work to him. He'd rather spend play time with Jill. But if she was going to check out all the paperwork Elliot had promised to give her, she needed to do a thorough job. The devil was in the details. Jill was exasperated that Jack wouldn't promise to help her, not even for Katherine's sake, and left while Jack looked thoughtful.
Brad was furious to get Victor's call and find out that Victor had picked up Abby from camp. He demanded that Victor bring her home at once. Victor refused, saying he was taking Abby horseback riding. Brad went ballistic, saying that she knew nothing about horses. Victor cut him off and hung up on him. Miguel brought Abby from the kitchen, where she'd been drinking lemonade, and he asked if she was having a good time. When she said yes, and she'd come back again as long as it was okay with her real daddy, Victor asked Miguel to take her swimming. Brad showed up at the ranch to get her, and two security guards stopped him from going into the house. Victor came out and told him to stop yelling and get off his property. Brad demanded that Abby be handed over to him, but Victor refused, saying he'd bring her home after dinner. He told Brad that if Nikki hadn't erased Ashley's call, he might have been willing to wait until she returned to see Abby. But for now, Abby was fine where she was. Brad left because he had no choice, but he warned Victor that this wasn't over.
At Marilyn's, Nikki gave Bobby a few lessons in business. Instead of trying to raise capital and then use it all trying to make a go of a cabaret, he needed to use the club a few nights for stripping and build interest in his cabaret. Bobby wondered what Victor would do if he knew Nikki was there giving him business advice. Still miffed at Victor for the way he'd been treating her, Nikki dismissed Bobby's questions. When Bobby said that Victor wasn't above buying the building just so he could drive Marilyn's out of business, Nikki said he wouldn't dare to that to her. In any case, she wasn't performing there. She'd be an executive, and if Bobby wanted to succeed, he'd start thinking of himself that way, too. They shook hands as new business partners.
J.T. told Paul and Lynne what he'd discovered in the archives at the Genoa City library. A little boy named Joshua Casen had gone missing in April of 1965, just days after he was at a birthday party at the home of Nick Reed. Paul admitted that Nick was Nikki's father, but he said they needed more information before he would approach Nikki or the police. He sent J.T. to do some more research. Christine came in with a proposition for Paul. Since he had to vacate his offices, and she was seriously considering going back into partnership with Michael, why didn't Paul move to the extra office in their suite? Paul said it would never work; he and Michael would be at each other's throats. Christine promised to buffer them, but she felt like it made sense for everyone. Paul told her to run the idea by Michael and see what he thought of it. Meanwhile, Paul would consider it, but he wasn't making any promises.
Kevin approached Lauren at Crimson Lights, asking again about a job. When Lauren was still hesitant, Kevin said he'd been taking steps to prove to her that he had changed. He was making new friends. He was getting along well with Gloria and Michael. He'd even tried to do volunteer work at the rec center, but they hadn't needed him. He really wanted a paying job, particularly something in bookkeeping. When he found out that Lauren and Michael had been talking, and that Lauren knew Michael wanted him to seek therapy, he agreed to do it. Lauren said to let some time pass and to get some help, then she'd make a decision about a job for him. Kevin didn't seem happy to hear that Lauren and Michael had been keeping in touch.
