Brittany freaked out, terrified that the mob was going to kill her child, and begged Bobby to call the police.

Nick asked Victor to make the Newman jet available to him. His people were hot on Daniel's trail, and Nick wanted to be able to leave at a moment's notice when Daniel's location was found. Victor refused to do that, saying Nick's place was with Sharon and Noah. When Sharon and Noah came in, Nick settled down long enough to congratulate Noah on making the all stars team and promised to be at his games. Nick then hurriedly left, leaving Sharon and Noah with Victor. Victor explained to Sharon that Nick was doing what he had to do; maybe it would all be over soon. When Sharon was reluctant to let Noah be part of the car pools necessary to participate in baseball, Victor said that Miguel would drive him everywhere. Sharon agreed; after she and Noah left, Victor told Miguel he hoped that Sharon wasn't getting too protective of Noah. Miguel said it would be understandable if she felt that way.
At Crimson Lights, Phyllis continued to badger Kevin into trying to track Lily and Daniel using his computer. Kevin wanted to shut down the laptop because of the thunderstorm, but Phyllis reminded him that he owed her one. While they were trying to get a location on Lily's cell phone, Nick came in. He confronted Phyllis, who told him that she didn't know where Daniel was. She said that she was just as eager to find her son as Nick was, but she also told Nick that Cassie would be disappointed in Nick's need for vengeance. Nick told Phyllis to put herself in his place; how would she feel if it was Daniel lying cold and dead in the ground and the person responsible was getting away? Phyllis left, and Kevin told Nick that while he was sorry for his loss, the things Nick had said to Phyllis had been overly harsh.
Nick went home intending to tuck Noah in, walking inside just after Sharon had found a jacket of Cassie's and was overtaken by grief. Sharon put the jacket away before Nick could see it, then she begged him to let the police handle finding Daniel. Nick said that it didn't matter, but before he could explain what he meant, he got a call and rushed to the airport, where Wally had the jet waiting.
Lily and Daniel were appalled to find that the news of their disappearance was already on the Internet. Daniel wanted to take off immediately, but Lily had an idea. She left the motel room; while she was gone, Daniel picked up her phone because it was vibrating. He saw a text message from Dru begging Lily to come home. When Lily came back in, she had scissors and hair dye. She was going to make Daniel harder to identify.
At the Abbott house, Phyllis paced as the thunderstorm continued. When her cell phone rang, she snatched it up. It was Kevin with news. Lily's phone had been turned on, and he'd tracked their location. He gave Phyllis the room number in a motel outside St. Louis.
Brad was supposed to pick up Abby at Ashley's, but Ashley talked about what a wonderful day she'd had with her daughter, including going to a place where Abby made her own teddy bear. She didn't want their time to end. Brad agreed to let Abby spend the night because he had plans. When his phone rang, Ashley was curious about whether he had a date. He admitted that he was meeting Victoria but said it was a business meeting.
After Brad left, Abby asked Ashley if they could go see Victor. Ashley took Abby to the ranch, where Abby first went with Miguel to see the horses. When Victor came in and saw Ashley, he had no idea that Abby was with her. The two of them talked for a few minutes about the impact Cassie's death was having on Nick and Sharon. Victor was thrilled when Abby came in, but she had another surprise for him. She gave him the teddy bear she'd made, telling him the bear's name was Cassie, and she had a real heart inside just the way Cassie had. Victor hugged Abby with tears in his eyes.
Victoria was waiting for Brad at the athletic club so they could work out. She told him that she'd accepted her father's offer to run Newman Enterprises in Nick's absence. Brad understood, pointing out that family was the most important consideration. Victoria was curious about why Ashley and Brad had broken up; they'd seemed so happy. Brad said that it wasn't fully either person's fault, but that he'd let himself believe in things that couldn't be. Victoria was surprised to hear that Ashley still had feelings for Victor; she said that her parents seemed very happy together. Brad said that nothing had happened between Ash and Victor; it had just been a dream of Ashley's that she was finally over. When Victoria said that at least Brad and Ashley still shared their little girl, Brad said that was the best thing to come out of their relationship. It had been hard for him to accept that Victor was Abby's father, but everything had finally worked out. Completely shocked by his accidental revelation, Victoria asked him to repeat himself: Was he saying that Victor was Abby's father?
