At Crimson Lights, Kevin and Jana dealt with a burst water pipe, which hindered business. When Lauren and Michael stopped by to pick them up for "Kay's" funeral, Kevin explained that he and Jana could not attend the service. Jana said she had phoned Jill to explain the situation. Michael mentioned that mourners planned to share a meal at the Genoa City Athletic Club after the service.
Adam met Heather at the coffeehouse. Heather mentioned that Frank Ellis, arrested for check kiting, would likely admit damning evidence against his cohorts in order to cut a deal with the prosecutor. Adam looked worried. Adam questioned Heather about Frank's so-called confessions. Heather said that criminals who faced long sentences often claimed that they "had the goods on bigger fish." Heather admitted that such confessions were often bogus, but Ellis' lawyer was convinced that his client "had something really big." While Heather went to check on their coffee order, Adam called and left a message for Jack to call back as soon as possible because they had a problem.
Kevin apologized to Heather when she asked about her coffee order. Kevin admitted that he was sorry he was missing Kay's funeral because he had been her go-to guy whenever she encountered problems with her computer. Adam joined Heather at the bar. Kevin asked Heather about Kay's wills and assets. Heather explained that Kay most likely had everything spelled out in a well-drafted document. Kevin joked that rich folks buried money or stashed cash away in mattresses. Heather said that if assets surfaced after probate, descendents could claim the money. Heather added that if a deceased person left cash that the family did not know existed, then whoever found it could keep it.
After Adam and Heather left to have breakfast at the club, Kevin opened the coffee shop's safe and took out Kay's purse loaded with cash. Kevin replaced the bag of cash in the safe before Jana returned. Jana thanked inconvenienced customers for their patience. Jana worried about repairs bills when Kevin admitted that the water leak required a plumber. Kevin assured Jana that he would get the money to pay a plumber somewhere. After a plumber arrived, he turned off the water and began working on what he determined would be costly repairs. After Jana closed the shop, she said she wished to pay respects to Kay's family. Kevin sent Jana ahead, so he could close the cash register. After Jana left, Kevin retrieved the bag of cash from the safe and placed a thick wad of bills into his pants pocket.
At the club, Heather was surprised when Adam ordered champagne for breakfast. Adam said he wanted his "baby" to have the best of everything. Heather smiled giddily. Adam proposed a toast to their "bright future due to his recent windfall." Heather advised Adam to hold onto the money he had received as an advance for his book because the Newman family would most likely challenge the diary in court.
At the chapel, Kay's friends and family waited for the funeral service to begin. Nikki nearly collapsed when Victor marched in and sat down beside Ashley in the front row. Nick attempted to cross the aisle to talk to his father, but Victor advised Nick to wait. Jack muttered to Sharon that he hoped he was only "seeing things." Brad arrived and sat behind Jack. Brad whispered, "Well, this should be interesting." Jack scowled bitterly.
Nina returned to Genoa City for what she thought was Kay's funeral. Nina sat next to Gina and Danny. After Gina asked Nina why she wasn't sitting with the Chancellor family, Nina explained that Jill had never forgiven her for marrying Phillip. Amber leaned on Daniel's shoulder. Amber whispered that Phyllis had suggested that she and Amber call a truce and end their feud. Amber changed the subject when she noticed that Victor had returned to Genoa City.
Brock Reynolds, Kay's son, opened the funeral service by reading a Bible verse about everlasting life. Jill sobbed when Brock said that he had come to celebrate the life of a most extraordinary woman. Amber cried softly as Brock recalled how his mother offered friendship, love, comfort, and advice to the many people who called her a friend. Victoria quickly directed her gaze toward her father as Brock continued to describe his mother's selfless acts of philanthropy.
Brock said that after his mother fought her personal demons, she fed the hungry and helped build an inner-city recreational facility. Brock added that his mother believed in President John Kennedy's principle that "for those to whom much is given, much is required." Brock choked up when he said that he would miss his mother terribly.
Dina sat next to Traci. Dina asked why Colleen wasn't there. Traci explained that Colleen was ill. After Dina said she had wished to see Colleen, Traci whispered that Dina could see her anytime, if she really wished to. Before Dina could respond, Jack asked Traci if Ashley had mentioned that Victor was coming. Traci assured Jack that she had no idea that Ashley and Victor were together. Jack continued to fume about Victor's presence. Ashley whispered to Victor that people were staring, but Victor said, "Let them." Paul worried that the police might arrest Victor. Nikki maintained that the police wouldn't arrest a man at a funeral, but Phyllis recalled that she had been arrested at her wedding.
Liz Foster, with her white mane neatly twirled into a compact bun, arrived late. Jill embraced Liz, as Liz explained that her flight was late. Liz sat beside Jill and greeted grandson Billy. Liz told Billy she was happy to hear that he had moved back home where he belonged. Jill seemed comforted by Liz's presence.
Gloria and Jeffrey walked in late, as well. Gloria expressed regret because she hadn't told Jill about Kay's drinking problem, but Jeffrey regretted that he hadn't swindled Kay out of her Jabot stock before she died. Michael and Lauren joined Gloria and Jeffrey in the back row. Neil turned around and told Michael that Victor was sitting beside Ashley. Neil motioned toward the front of the chapel with his head. Michael and Lauren rose slightly, so they could see Victor for themselves. Michael looked stunned. Lauren shushed Jeffrey when he whispered, "Who says there's no good theater in this town?"
After Brock led the mourners in the a recitation of the "Lord's Prayer," he said that his mother's absence would leave a hole in everyone's heart. Brock added that he knew that the Duchess, his pet name for his mother, was somewhere laughing because those gathered had made such a fuss over her. Brock invited Liz to speak. Liz said she lived in London presently, but besides Brock, she had probably known Kay longer than anyone else had. Liz said, "Kay was rich because her life was full of love, and that was why she had friends from various walks of life." Liz recalled that she had kept house for Kay, but that Kay had never treated her like a second-class citizen. Esther acknowledged the truth of Liz's comments by nodding her head.
Billy and Cane also spoke about their beloved grandmother's love and devotion. Cane said that part of Kay would always be with him. Amber cried when she said she felt as if she and Kay were kindred souls. Phyllis lowered her head when Amber expressed her desire to be just like Kay some day. Esther sobbed as she recalled how her boss comforted her even when she made mistakes. Jill admitted that she was a lucky woman to have had two mothers, since she had not known that Kay was her mother since because Liz had raised her. Jill said that she and her mother didn't always see eye-to-eye, but they loved each other. Jill expressed regret for judging her mother too harshly. Jill wiped her cheeks before she read a poem titled 'Death is Nothing at All."
Nikki silently thanked God for answering her prayers and bringing Victor home safely. Nikki added that her heart was breaking to see Victor with Ashley. Ashley prayed that Victor would have the strength to bear his losses. Sharon wished silently that she could ask Kay what to do about Jack because she could not stand his lies any longer. Gloria prayed that John would watch over Kay in heaven. Neil prayed for Drucilla to watch over Kay. Danny prayed for his dad to look out for Kay. Esther and Lauren silently acknowledged their deep senses of loss. Traci wondered to herself if Ashley knew what she was getting into with Victor. Jeffrey took note of the rich-looking blonde woman seated next to Jack. Jack prayed for himself and asked God why Ashley had dragged Victor back to town. Victor acknowledged that vengeance belonged to God, but he admitted that could not wait that long.
Each mourner placed long-stemmed, crimson roses atop Marge's casket, which they believed held Kay's remains. Ana and Devon sang a soulful version of "Amazing Grace." Nikki cried and leaned her head against the top of the casket. Paul supported Nikki and led her out of the chapel. Nick hurried out to catch up with Victor. When Michael asked Nick what had happened to Victor, Nick explained that Victor had a car waiting for him and had already left.
Near the river's edge, against a rock outcrop, Murphy, who wore waders, sat his pole and tackle down when he discovered Kay, who was partially submerged in the rushing water, and comatose. Murphy called out, "Marge, Marge." Murphy rolled Kay's limp body over and cradled her in his arms. Murphy cursed his cell phone because he couldn't get service in the remote area. Murphy pleaded with "Marge" to awaken. When Kay woke up, Murphy asked her what had happened. Kay asked Murphy who he was, but Murphy didn't answer because he thought "Marge" was confused from her injuries and exposure to the elements.
Murphy wrapped Kay in his jacket and told her that he should take her to a hospital. Kay refused medical treatment. Murphy took Kay to his trailer. When Kay asked why she was there, Murphy told "Marge" that she was home. Kay, still shivering, didn't recognize the place and said, "We're not home. Where are we?"
