At the Newman Ranch, Nikki was aghast when Ashley opened a package from a sender identified as Jane Smith. Ashley shrieked when she saw a piece of stone carved into the likeness of an infant's head roll out of the box after Ashley dropped the box on the floor. Adam walked in and offered his sympathies to Ashley after Victor explained what had happened. Adam implicated Estella. Nikki defended Estella and suggested that Adam had sent the package.
Nikki approached Ashley after Victor and Adam went upstairs. Nikki told Ashley that she believed that Adam was behind Ashley's haunting episodes. Victor went to Adam's room and questioned him at length. Victor checked to ensure that Adam's ankle monitor was in place. Adam insisted that he hadn't been involved with Ashley's numerous disturbing encounters.
Rafe escorted Estella to the ranch, so she could defend herself. Estella was mortified when she learned about the package containing the stone baby's head that someone removed from the statue of Sabrina. Victor demanded that Rafe and Estella stay put until the authorities arrived. After Detective Wallace arrived, Adam listened via the hidden microphone as Victor described the latest incident involving the package containing the statue's head.
Det. Wallace explained that sending the package through the mail would garner serious charges against the offender. Det. Wallace reported that someone had fabricated the name and address listed as the package's sender, but that forensics was able to lift a fingerprint from the box. Victor immediately ordered Det. Wallace to compare the lifted print to those of Adam, Rafe, and Estella. Estella became distraught, and Rafe refused to allow police to take their fingerprints.
Nikki defended Rafe and Estella. Estella explained that she had gone there so that Victor could hear her side of the story. Estella reluctantly agreed to have her fingerprints taken. Victor returned to Adam's room and told him about the fingerprint on the box. Adam secretly recalled the day Estella delivered some of Victor's belongings to the ranch in the box. Adam also recalled using the box to send a package to Ashley. Adam sardonically agreed to allow police to compare his fingerprints to the one found on the box.
While everyone waited for the fingerprint results, Nikki assured Estella that tests would clear her of all accusations. When Det. Wallace announced that Estella's prints matched, Ashley berated her former maid. Estella complained that Ashley hated her from the beginning because Ashley knew that she could never replace Nikki or Sabrina. Victor ordered Estella to hush, and he ordered Nikki to leave. Estella sobbed pitifully as Det. Wallace arrested her.
Before Rafe left to assist his aunt after her unexpected arrest, he went upstairs to Adam's room. Rafe explained that he could no longer represent Adam as his attorney. Adam feigned shock that Victor had blamed Estella for taunting Ashley. Rafe warned that the person responsible for setting up his aunt would pay. Downstairs, Ashley told Victor that she thought her nightmare would end after Estella left the ranch. Victor stroked Ashley's arm and urged to think only about the baby.
At the Genoa City Athletic Club, Nikki complained to Paul about Victor and his unreasonable determination to blame Estella for torturing Ashley. Nikki admitted that Victor feared losing Ashley and the baby. Paul reminded Nikki that she still cared for Victor and for Ashley. Paul told Nikki that he had been meeting with a client, but that he couldn't discuss details.
Cane gave Mac the evening off. Mac reminded Cane that Nina had arranged to exhume Phillip's body. After Mac left, Cane phoned someone and left a message. Cane said, "The exhumation's begun. Please call me before I lose everything." Cane studied his passport, opened the safe, and removed a thick stack of cash. Cane recalled reciting his vows to Lily. Cane remembered promising Lily that he would share every moment of his life with her.
Lily arrived at Jimmy's Bar and arranged to eat dinner with Cane. Jill arrived and told Cane that Phillip's corpse was missing. Jill warned that tests had not yet confirmed Cane's genetic relationship, so Nina demanded that Cane submit to another DNA test. As Jill criticized Nina's motives, Cane calmly agreed to submit to another test. After Jill left, Cane told Lily that he might not be a Chancellor. Lily assured Cane that she loved him no matter what his name was.
At the morgue, Paul consoled Nina, who was shocked to see that someone had filled Phillip's casket with sandbags instead of his remains. Nina demanded that the attendant find her dead husband's body. The startled attendant nervously phoned his supervisor. Nina also demanded to know the name of the person who had conducted the initial DNA tests on Phillip's body.
At the Chancellor mansion, Katherine comforted Jill, who expressed concern that Phillip's body would be disturbed from his grave. Paul phoned and reported that Phillip's body was missing, so DNA tests might never be completed. Nina and Paul arrived and explained that authorities had charged the examiner, who had supposedly conducted the initial DNA tests on Phillip's body, with falsifying results in another case. Jill fumed when Nina added that there was no proof that Cane was a Chancellor.
Paul took a call from the morgue. The morgue attendant reported that tests of the coffin's interior proved that it had never entombed a body. Katherine theorized that unscrupulous persons might have stolen or sold Phillip's body. After Paul left, Nina told Katherine that the missing corpse would prove Cane to be a fraud. Katherine warned Nina that she should be prepared to find out that her suspicions were wrong. Nina suggested that Katherine never switched the babies because Violet Montgomery wasn't in Genoa City at the time the switch reportedly occurred.
Nina suggested that Katherine might have incorrectly recalled the memory of switching the babies after Cane arrived insisting that he was Jill's son. Katherine admitted that she was confused at the time. Nina said that Katherine and Jill's guilt over Phillip's death might also have clouded their memories of what actually occurred. Katherine asked Nina how Cane could have faked his DNA test. Nina said simply that Cane should undergo another DNA test. Jill returned and announced that Cane had readily agreed to be tested.
Jill assured Nina that Cane's test would prove that he was a Chancellor. Nina seemed unfazed. In a stark room, Cane reached into a freezer and retrieved a vial of blood. As a frosty mist rose from the freezer, Cane replaced the lid on the remaining frozen samples. After Cane pocketed the sample, he phoned someone and left another message. Cane said, "It's me again. By the time you get this, I will have done what I have to do. Maybe then, you'll quit running.
At Crimson Lights, Billy paid a waitress to have the patio closed, so he could spend private time with Mac. Billy told Mac that there was no reason they couldn't share a few laughs together.
