While Maggie and Paul were visiting, Gloria remembered confessing to William, before he suffered a stroke, that she had tainted the cream. After William managed to write the word "murderer" on a pad, Michael and Gloria quickly shifted the subject of discussion to Jana. However when Michael realized that Gloria's continued insistence that Paul and Maggie leave William alone seemed suspicious, Michael gave William a pad and pen and asked him if he knew anything about Jana. William wrote the word, "No," on the paper.
Maggie insisted that she wasn't giving up her plan to help William solve his cases, but Michael, Lauren and Gloria told Maggie and Paul that it's a matter of life or death to find Kevin. Gloria was also concerned that Kevin's condition could deteriorate. Paul checked, but learned that Kevin had not used his credit or ATM cards. Later, at the coffee house, Maggie told Paul that she was worried about William. She also said that she couldn't stop thinking about the fact that William had written "murderer" on the paper and that Gloria kept William isolated.
Meanwhile Jana contacted Kevin via Webcam. Kevin told Jana that he had $500,000 that he had won at a casino. Jana expressed her concern for Kevin's health when she saw his bruises, but Kevin was persistent at his attempt to lure Jana to Genoa City. Later, Kevin called Amber and Daniel and ordered them to meet him at the Chancellor estate to dig up the money. When Colleen became suspicious about why Daniel was in such a hurry to leave the apartment, she secretly followed him. Before Colleen arrived at the estate, Kevin told Amber and Daniel that he needed to use all of the money in order to impress Jana. Amber, Kevin and Daniel quickly hid the money when Colleen found them, but Colleen threatened to call Michael and the police unless she was told what was in the bag. When they finally told Colleen about the money, they claimed that they had hidden it for Amber's missing cousin, but were borrowing it in order to lure Jana back. Later, Kevin showed Jana the money over the Webcam. However, Jana didn't know that Colleen, Amber and Daniel watched her interact with Kevin on his computer, out of the camera's view.
Victor told Jack, Sharon, Karen and Neil that the jet crashed because someone planted an incendiary inside the plane. Victor theorized that the target could have been Jack. However, Victor insisted that Nick not be told about the sabotage. However, Victor ordered Newman emails and other correspondence be gathered for investigators for fear that the attempt could have been organized by the mob in retaliation for the video released by Nikki's campaign manager. Victor said that until they know who the target was, they cannot know the saboteur's motives. Victor didn't want the Newman employees alarmed, so he forbade anyone to discuss the sabotage or their speculations about threats to people within the company. Neil alerted the mailroom to watch for suspicious deliveries, but Victor still would not allow Neil to tell Nick that the plane crash was no accident. Victor said he was certain that the authorities would catch whoever sabotaged the jet. Later, Victor told Karen that he knew that she didn't like him. Karen explained that she blamed Victor for Nikki having lost the election because Victor didn't offer his support. Jack and Victor exchanged terse words when Victor told Jack that he didn't approve of Jack buying his was back into the Clear Springs project. Jack sternly advised Victor that he had better adjust to the idea if they both wished to profit from the partnership.
Nick returned the office. Logan showed up to check on Nick. When Nick offered to repay Logan for saving his life, she refused money in lieu of free cosmetics for life. Nick told Logan that he feels as if he has stepped into someone else's life. Nick said that he wished he could have his old life back, a life when he was married to Sharon. When Sharon and Jack stopped by, Nick openly flirted with Sharon. Nick was shocked and angered when he learned that Victoria had long ago fired Sharon as Newman's spokesmodel. Jack couldn't believe it when Nick told Sharon that he'd try to rehire her. Later, Sharon told Jack that Phyllis had divulged to Nick about Sharon's affair, the blackmail and about Phyllis' indictment, but that Nick understood and wasn't angry. Jack changed the subject to Clear Springs, but he nixed a plan to have Sharon involved at the present time because of security concerns. Sharon was disappointed when Jack canceled her public appearances.
Nick told Neil that he was still in love with Sharon and that he couldn't believe that he had hurt her. Neil explained that after Cassie died and Nick divorced her, it took a long time for Sharon to move on, but that she finally had moved on. Neil urged Nick not to undo the progress Sharon has made. Later, as Nick and Sharon shared an elevator ride, Nick told Sharon that she would be perfect for his new campaign. He begged Sharon to come back to work for Newman.
