At Forrester Creations in Los Angeles, Lily, accompanied by Devon and Nick, prepared for her photo session. Felicia Forrester, who oversaw her company's ad campaign, shamelessly flirted with Nick. Felicia told Nick that she had plans for him to enjoy his leisure time in L.A. Nick agreed when Felicia told him that they made a great team, although Nick interpreted Felicia's remark to mean "partners in business." Felicia found Nick's misplaced cell phone, but she didn't return the phone right away when she noticed that Phyllis was calling. Lily was excited about modeling an original design from Forrester Creations. Chloe, Lily's stylist, hurt Lily's feelings when she said, "You look like crap." Lily, who suffered a bout of morning sickness, ran to the restroom to throw up. When Lily returned, Chloe presumed that Lily was bulimic. Chloe warned Lily that she was keeping watch over her. Lily enjoyed posing for the photographer, and Felicia and Nick were pleased with Lily's photos. Felicia enjoyed uninterrupted time with Nick, so she didn't return his phone until after Nick declined her offer for a night of partying in favor of reuniting with one of his fraternity brothers. Felicia's eyes roved up and down Nick's body as he walked away. After the photo shoot, Lily told Devon that she truly enjoyed modeling. Devon insisted that Lily tell Neil about her pregnancy soon. Lily phoned Neil and requested he meet her for dinner after she returned to Genoa City.
At Victor's ranch, Sabrina, who'd spent the night with her lover, worried about telling Victoria that her and Victor's relationship had become romantic. When Victoria arrived, Victor asked Victoria to accompany Sabrina and help her locate space to house the art collection he planned to acquire.
At the club, Phyllis ran into Michael when she went to pick up a to-go order. Phyllis discussed the multi-million-dollar lawsuit Michael had filed against Jack and Sharon. Phyllis defended her business partners, and she implied that Michael's intention was to seek revenge on Gloria's behalf. Phyllis seemed shocked when Michael bluntly announced that Gloria was no longer his concern.
At the Abbott mansion, a lonely Gloria comforted herself with Godiva chocolate. Jeffrey phoned, and Gloria read him the riot act. Gloria told her estranged husband that she planned to have their marriage annulled. Gloria rebuffed Jeffrey's threat to send her to the jailhouse, and she added that it didn't matter if Jeffrey hadn't slept with his girlfriend, because she still planned to send him to the poorhouse.
At the coffeehouse, Jana and Kevin planned for their wedding to be held at a haunted house. The couple was in agreement about their wedding site, but Kevin refused to include Gloria on the guest list because, Kevin claimed, Gloria would ensure that the day revolved around her. Jack and Sharon stopped by. Sharon was surprised when Jack told her that he was about to sign a contract on a house. When Michael walked in, he told Jack that Sharon had tried to persuade him to drop his lawsuit, which he had no intention of doing. Near the coffee bar, Nikki contemplated the menu while she waited to meet Victoria. When Victoria approached her mother from behind, Nikki was startled. Nikki admitted that she was tense because a few days had passed since she had been in touch with David, who was away in Texas due to a family emergency. After Jack and Sharon left for the office, Michael approached Jana and Kevin to ask why Jana had summoned him about an emergency, which was actually Gloria's little trick to gather her family together. Gloria arrived and told her sons and Jana that they had been right, and she had been wrong. Gloria apologized and told her family that she wanted to mend their relationships. Michael refused to believe that Gloria was truly remorseful. Gloria begged her sons and Jana to come to the Abbott mansion for tea.
At the Abbott mansion, Jack and Sharon showed up after Gloria summoned them to join her for an important announcement. After Michael, Kevin, Jana, and the Abbotts were all in place, Gloria, clutching a photo of John, admitted that she was mistaken to believe that living in John's house would make her feel closer to him. Jack accused Gloria of bluffing when she announced that she wished to give the house back. Jack demanded to know what Gloria really wanted. Gloria said she wanted to make amends to her family. Gloria gave Jack the court agreement and ordered him to rip it to shreds. As Jack destroyed the contract, Gloria lovingly cradled John's photo and turned away as she choked back tears.
At Restless Style magazine's office, Adam stopped by and consulted with Jack about the ad for Beauty of Nature. After Jack suggested that Adam seek consultation from Phyllis, Adam explained that Nick and Phyllis seemed anxious and tense because they were not yet accustomed to his presence in Genoa City. Jack advised Adam to be wary of Victor because Victor would eventually feel threatened by Adam's success. When Phyllis arrived, Adam abruptly excused himself. Phyllis asked Adam why he was leaving so soon after she arrived. Adam explained that it was part of Nick's arrangement. Phyllis said that she knew Nick had confronted Adam, and she added that it was demeaning that Adam conducted business only with the men in their company.
Sabrina and Victoria stopped by Restless Style's office and asked Phyllis about renting the space on the ground floor for Victor's art gallery. Phyllis mentioned that Nick owned the building, and he might not allow Victor to rent part of it. Victoria said she would talk to Victor and hoped to negotiate an agreement, which could help mend the father-and-son relationship. Victoria repeatedly asked Phyllis to call Nick in L.A., but since Felicia had hidden Nick's phone, Phyllis' calls were unanswered. After Jack and Sharon arrived, Sharon was called away to handle the company's payroll. Jack was surprised when Sabrina told him about Victor's plan to open a gallery for a collection of contemporary art. Jack was even more surprised when he learned that Sabrina planned to rent space downstairs in Nick's building. After Victoria and Sabrina left, Jack and Sharon told Phyllis that perhaps "Nick and Victor were meant to stay apart."
Sabrina met Victor at the club for lunch. Sabrina admitted that she had not yet found the right moment to tell Victoria about their relationship. Sabrina excitedly announced that she had discovered an open and airy space for the gallery. Sabrina explained that she was concerned because the space was part of Nick's building, and she worried that Nick would refuse to rent space to his father. Without hesitation, Victor explained that renting that particular space would not be a problem because he owned the building. Sabrina was confused, but Victor told her that Nick had offered the bank his trust fund as collateral when he purchased the building. The bank notified Victor, so he acquired Nick's mortgage on the building.
