After Chloe's car ran out of gas in a remote, cell-phone dead zone, Cane hiked six miles to a gas station. Not amused, Cane returned and slammed the car door to awaken a hung-over Chloe. While Cane recounted his ordeal, Chloe fantasized as her eyes dreamily roved over Cane's biceps, eyes, and lips. Back in town, Cane stopped by the coffeehouse for a caffeine infusion. Chloe hung onto Cane and suggested they discuss Lily's ad campaign for Jabot. Nikki joined the pair and discussed Lily's level of commitment and questioned Lily's ability to work with Cane. Nikki seemed anguished when Cane pointed out that some couples worked very well together.
Nikki and David dined at the club. Nikki told David that they should continue to work together. Brad joined the estranged couple and informed them that Jill had tapped Lily to be the sole representative for Jabot's Fresh Face Retro campaign. When Nikki complained that she hadn't received a memo about Jill's decision, Brad pointed out that both Nikki and David should improve their lines of communication. After Nikki left, David told Brad that he and Nikki were separated, and that he was no longer living at the club. Victor later ran into David at the club, and Victor warned David that he would be watching him "from now on."
At the Newman ranch, Sabrina suffered morning sickness. Victor commiserated, and Sabrina left to sit by the pool. Adam came downstairs and told Victor that although he wouldn't stop seeing Heather, he would no longer bring her to the ranch. Victor claimed that Heather was dating Victors Newman's son for one reason only. Victor recounted how Heather had tried to further her career by pinning Ji Min's murder on him. After Adam left, Victoria stopped by. Victor told Victoria that he had seen David at the club with a suitcase. Victor added that he distrusted David and vowed that he would go after anyone who threatened harm to anyone in is his family. Victoria admitted that her mother and David were having problems, but she refused to elaborate. At the pool, Adrian joined Sabrina to work on his piece about her for Restless Style. Sabrina was flattered that Adrian was impressed with her art background. Adrian told Sabrina that writing fluff wasn't his forte. Victoria joined Adrian and Sabrina. Adrian greeted Victoria warmly before he left. Victoria asked Sabrina about the interview. Victoria grilled Sabrina about what happened when Sabrina worked at the Pompidou in Paris. Sabrina said she had mentioned her first show at the Paris museum, but that she didn't elaborate. Victoria reminded Sabrina that she'd left Paris after she trashed her reputation by having a scandalous affair with Phillipe.
At Restless Style's headquarters, Nick arrived early to find a disheveled Amber and Adrian already there. After Phyllis arrived, she noted Amber's anxiousness. Although Amber and Adrian had spent the night together on the floor, they had hastily dressed before Nick and Phyllis came and tried to act normally. Nick carried a box, which was a gift of fabric sent by Daniel from England. Phyllis, who wasn't fooled by Amber's innocent act, noted that Amber didn't seem to be impressed by Daniel's offering. When Daniel called, he noted that Amber sounded weird. Amber thanked Daniel for the gift and told him she missed him very much. After the call, Amber told Phyllis that the photo she had seen of Daniel with the sleazy girl had been nothing more than a publicity stunt. After Amber angrily suggested that Phyllis had purposely left the photo up on her computer screen in order to hurt her, Phyllis reminded Amber that she was her boss, so Amber should watch her tone. Phyllis added that facts could sometimes be misconstrued, just as Phyllis could easily misconstrue having found Amber and Adrian together. Later, Amber ran into Adrian at the coffeehouse. Amber told Adrian that Daniel had called and assured her that their relationship had not changed. Adrian promised Amber that Daniel would never know about their impromptu tryst.
Nick fielded a call for Jack from an artist named Phillipe Chanderot, who claimed to have been involved with Sabrina. Apparently, Mr. Chanderot was calling to answer an inquiry from Jack. While Nick was explaining to the caller that he wasn't interesting in digging up dirt on Sabrina, Jack arrived and listened to Nick's end of the conversation. After Nick hung up, he told Jack that Mr. Chanderot, Sabrina's ex, had been more than willing to trash Sabrina. After Nick rebuffed Jack for failing to collaborate, Jack reminded Nick that he was attempting to keep the magazine from going belly-up. Jack lied that he had never contacted the guy and denied that he would contact Mr. Chanderot again. When Adrian returned, Nick asked Adrian about his opinion of Sabrina. Adrian extolled Sabrina's savvy art expertise. When Cane and Chloe stopped by, Chloe and Amber butted heads. Cane and Chloe discussed Lily's upcoming cover photo. Nick wasn't too happy after he learned that Jack already knew about Jabot's ad campaign featuring Lily. After Cane and Chloe left, Phyllis joined the argument between Jack and Nick over Jack's tentative agreement with Jabot to put Lily on the magazine's cover. Jack held up a notepad and offered to share the notes he'd taken during his meeting with Cane and Chloe. Phyllis remembered that she had ad mock-ups on her flash drive. When Phyllis went to get her flash drive, she found Amber's sexy undergarment under a desk.
At the club, Adam ran into Heather, and she explained that she understood why Victor was still miffed at her. Heather admitted that her zeal to win led her to follow the wrong evidence, which implicated Victor. Adam promised that he would not let his father dictate his personal life. Heather thanked Adam for sticking up for her to Victor. After Heather left, Skye showed up and kissed Adam. Heather watched from the other side of the room. Skye claimed that a detour from business had brought her to town. Adam was quick to tell Skye that he was seeing someone. Skye made Adam promise to stay in touch, anyway. Brad happened by after Adam left, and he and Skye hugged. Brad told Skye that poker with David Chow was still on, as was taking David for every cent he had. When Heather later returned, she told Adam that she'd seen him with Skye. Adam insisted that what Heather had seen was the ending of a relationship.
After a tough day, Nikki soothed her nerves with tea at Crimson Lights. Victoria joined her mother and asked what David had done this time. Victoria was surprised to learn that David was still working at Jabot. Victoria admitted that J.T. had told her about David's past and the implications that he was involved in the deaths of two previous wives. Nikki said that Paul had told her about David's sordid past. Nikki maintained that David would never hurt her. Victoria pointed out that he already had.
