Nick called Sharon as she was on her way into the athletic club. She tried to persuade him to come home because she and Noah needed him, but Nick said finding Daniel was something he had to do. She asked if Nick would at least get the police involved, but Nick hung up without making any promises. Sharon went to the bar instead of the gym and asked Gina for a Bloody Mary. As Brad was coming in, Gina stopped him and pointed out Sharon with her drink. Brad sat down next to Sharon and ordered coffee for both of them.
Sharon shared some of her feelings with Brad, who listened sympathetically. She said that each morning, she woke up feeling like everything was okay, then she was hit with the realization that Cassie was gone. Noah was handling it better than she'd expected, although he talked about Cassie every day. And now she was beginning to think that Nick was right to stay away. Maybe having to cope with his grief as well as her own would be too overwhelming. Brad gently told Sharon that if he were in Nick's position, he'd probably be doing the same thing that Nick was. Although Brad agreed that Nick should be home with his family, he was obviously going through something very painful, felt powerless, and was trying to find himself. Sharon was grateful for Brad's understanding and pushed her drink away. Brad smiled. He invited her to get Noah and bring him to the Abbott pool party, but Sharon wasn't sure she was ready for that.
Phyllis wasn't happy to find out that Nick had followed his wife's advice and called the police. She asked the officers what they'd do if they caught Daniel. They told her they'd take him in and transport him back to Genoa City. After the police left, Phyllis turned on Nick and demanded to know why he'd gone back on their agreement to handle this on their own, without involving the police. Nick gave her a skeptical look and said that he wasn't there to help her allow her son to get away. Daniel needed to face the consequences of what he'd done. Just as Jack called Phyllis on her cell phone, Neil arrived. Phyllis used that opportunity to leave the two men alone.
Neil had called Drucilla earlier and told her there was no news about Lily, but he wasn't giving up. Like Phyllis, he was a little surprised to learn from Nick that the L.A. police were now involved. Dru had told him Lily wasn't being mentioned in the newspaper articles about Daniel yet, and Neil had hoped that they could get to the kids before the police did, so he could keep Lily out of trouble. Nick commiserated with him, expressing his belief that Daniel had a way of persuading young women to do things they shouldn't. As worried as Neil was about Lily and as much as he hoped he hadn't failed to provide her a stable environment, he acknowledged that what Nick was going through was much worse. Nick agreed that for Neil and Lily, there was still hope. Nick could never get Cassie back.
Later, when Nick was alone, he took out pictures of Cassie and spoke aloud to his dead daughter. He told her how much he loved and missed her, promising that he was going to see justice done. The last thing he could do for his little girl was to see that Daniel paid for taking her life.
When Devon came into Crimson Lights, Malcolm could tell that the teen had something on his mind. He assumed it was concern for Lily, and Devon admitted that there was something else. He told Malcolm about searching for and finding his mother, only to realize that she was still strung out on crack. She'd told him to forget her and his old life and to take advantage of all the opportunities the Winters family offered him. Malcolm told Devon that he needed to share all this information with Dru. Devon said she already had too much on her mind, but Malcolm refused to take no for an answer. In fact, he offered to go with Devon and help him talk to Drucilla.
After finding out from Neil that Lily still hadn't been located, Dru was on the verge of falling apart. She got a surprise visit from Victoria and congratulated her on her new position at Newman. Victoria pointed out that she had quite a task ahead of her. With Nick, Neil, and Phyllis all out of the office, Victoria needed Drucilla at work. In fact, it was time for Dru to either come back to the office or Victoria had grounds to dismiss her. Drucilla accused Victoria of kicking her when she was down. Victoria sympathized with Dru's predicament with Lily, but she reminded her that they were all going through something. Maybe returning to work would actually benefit Dru, taking her mind off of Lily's absence and giving her something to do. Drucilla finally agreed. Later, she was trying to work at home when Malcolm and Devon came in. At first she tried to put Devon off, but Malcolm insisted that Devon tell Dru the truth. Dru was startled to find out that Devon had been in contact with his mother.
As one of Vinny's goons eavesdropped on the patio of Crimson Lights, Bobby had a talk with Mac. He told her that it was totally over with him and Brittany, calling his wife a tramp. He also thought that Mac should forget about J.T., who didn't deserve her. J.T. and Brittany had obviously had something going on for a long time; he and Mac were well rid of them. As they were talking, Kevin watched from inside. After Bobby left, followed by Vinny's spy, Kevin approached Mac. She was surprised by how supportive he was as she talked about J.T. He even encouraged her to fight for what she wanted. Kevin told Mac that as much as he cared about her, what he really wanted was to see her happy. Maybe it wasn't too late for her to find happiness with J.T. She should follow her heart. Mac said she intended to do just that, kissed him on the cheek and told him what a great person he was, and left the coffee house.
In the loft, Brittany apologized again to J.T. for ruining his life. J.T. said that it drove him crazy to lie to Mac, but he knew it had to be that way. He was committed to protecting Brittany and her baby any way that he could. After they talked, Brittany dressed in a disguise and met Bobby in the park. He warned her that they couldn't keep taking that kind of risk. For now, he'd shaken Vinny's spy, but they were going to have to stay away from each other for their plan to work. Brittany said maybe they should do what he'd first suggested--find a little home of their own in another state, far away from all these problems. While they were talking, Joshua started kicking. Bobby put his hands on Brittany's stomach, then the two of them sat on the park bench kissing.
J.T. was surprised when Mac showed up at the loft. She told him that she'd been thinking about the two of them and had come to a decision. She wanted to move back into the loft.
Lily promised Daniel that she'd buy an airline ticket home as soon as they found jobs and made enough money. All she wanted in return from him was that he stop badgering her about going back to Wisconsin. Daniel agreed, and they talked to the cafe manager about jobs. He had them dress up as a giant banana and a strawberry to advertise smoothies on the beach. While they were taking a break, Lily spotted Phyllis standing on the beach. Before the teens could get away, Phyllis walked up to show them pictures of themselves, asking if they'd seen those two people. Daniel and Lily shook their heads, mumbled no, and began to walk away. Phyllis stared after them with speculation, wondering if what she suspected could be possible.
