The dining room at the Athletic Club was decorated for the Policemen's Benevolent Fund Masquerade Ball. Several guests had arrived. Jack, carrying his mask, was upset when Patty, still disguised as Emily, told him that she had to leave to take care of some Adam-related business. He reminded her that she was expected to give a speech. She assured him that she would be back in plenty of time.
As Patty walked off, Victor approached Jack and asked him where "Emily" was going. Jack told Victor that she had to leave temporarily to make sure that Adam was transported to jail. Victor said that he would be glad when the situation with Adam was over with. Jack said that there might be a problem -- Owen Pomerantz, the district attorney, was angry about Adam's mock trial. Victor wondered if Pomerantz was planning to launch an investigation into what had occurred at the Abbott cabin.
Nick and Phyllis arrived at the ball -- Nick wheeled his wife, confined to a wheelchair, into the club. After the Newmans made some small talk with Jack and Victor, Nick asked them to look after Phyllis so that he could go upstairs and visit with Faith. Victor told Nick that he wanted to talk with Nick about something, but the arrival of Billy and Katherine interrupted them. Katherine said that Murphy would be arriving at the ball after his lodge meeting.
Katherine walked off to attend to some ball business. Victor and Jack told Billy that, because of the "trash" interview with Adam that Jill had posted on the Restless Style website, the district attorney was launching an investigation into what had happened at the Abbott cabin on the night of Adam's mock trial. Jack said that the article could undermine the case against Adam. Jack warned Billy to be careful at the ball, and told his brother that Pomerantz was going to be there. Victor said that there was no way that Adam could be allowed to go free.
Nick visited a harried-looking Sharon in her suite. She said that she couldn't believe that there was a possibility that Adam might be set free. She told Nick that she would have something else to obsess about while she was up all night tending to Faith. Sharon said that she hadn't been able to leave the suite since she and Faith had checked in. Nick suggested that Sharon go downstairs and visit with some of their friends, and added that he wouldn't mind some alone time with their daughter. Sharon clearly liked the sound of Nick saying "our daughter." Sharon agreed to clean up and go to the ball for a while.
While Sharon was preparing to go downstairs, Nick talked to Faith. He told her that Cassie had predicted that he and Sharon would have a new daughter. Nick said that he would always be there to love Faith, and to keep her safe.
At the Hellstroms', J.T. was playing with Reed when Victoria, wearing an elegant gown, entered the living room. J.T. took a picture of Reed with Victoria, and reassured her that he didn't mind her going to the ball -- that he wouldn't try to use it against her in his suit to gain full custody of Reed. He said that if he and Victoria were trying to raise a child together, they had to trust each other. Victoria wondered, if J.T. meant that, why he was seeking sole custody of the boy. He told her that it wasn't an appropriate time to discuss that, and he urged her to go to the ball and have a good time.
After Victoria left, J.T. put Reed to bed. Mac showed up dressed for the ball and carrying a pizza box. She told J.T. that she thought she would drop by a treat before heading for the Athletic Club. She and J.T. devoured the pizza, and she told him all about the weird food cravings she was experiencing during her pregnancy. J.T. ran upstairs when he heard Reed urgently yelling out "Daddy!"
Returning downstairs, J.T. told Mac that Reed had a nightmare -- he had dreamt that there were invisible monsters under his bed. J.T. said that he read a story to his son, but that Reed was asking for Victoria. Mac was certain that Reed was reacting to the tension between J.T. and Victoria, and she suggested that he call Victoria and ask her to return home. When J.T. refused, Mac wondered if J.T. was purposely trying to create distance between Victoria and Reed. J.T. asked Mac why she would think that. Mac said because J.T. was angry with Victoria, and wanted sole custody of Reed. J.T. said that he wanted what was best for his son. Mac said that contact with both of his parents was what was best for the child. She told J.T. that Reed needed his mother.
Victoria arrived at the Athletic Club, and Billy greeted her and asked if she were looking for him. Victoria said that he was being ridiculous -- that she was there to support Victor and Katherine, and told Billy to get over himself. Billy wondered if J.T. had given Victoria a difficult time about her decision to attend the ball. Victoria said that, on the contrary, J.T. had been supportive. Victor approached the couple, and looked none-too-thrilled to see Victoria with Billy. Billy told Victor that he was just about to tell Victoria that the district attorney was investigating Adam's mock trial. Victor told Billy that he would fill Victoria in, and he walked his daughter away from Billy.
Later, Billy sought out Victoria, topped off her champagne, and asked if they could continue their earlier conversation. Victoria couldn't remember where they had left off. Billy reminded her that she was talking about how nice J.T. had been about her attending the ball. Victoria was reluctant to discuss that subject with Billy, but he told her to talk to him -- that confession cleansed the soul.
Victoria told Billy about the battle for custody of Reed. She told him how important it was that she didn't do anything that might make her look bad before the judge. Billy wondered if Victoria could trust that J.T. wouldn't use her attendance at the ball against her. Victoria once again told Billy that J.T. had urged her to go to the ball and to have fun.
Billy said that if Victoria wanted to have fun, then he was her man. He wondered if there was a room available for them at the Athletic Club. Seeing Victoria's shocked reaction to his suggestion, Billy immediately said that going to a room would be inappropriate. He kept pouring champagne for Victoria. She asked him if he were trying to get her drunk. He said that he was just trying to keep her mind off of J.T.
At the Baldwins', Lauren and Michael prepared to go to the ball. Both of them were relieved that Ryder and Daisy were in jail, and were charged with attempted murder, drug possession, and conspiracy. Michael told Lauren that their bail was extremely high. Lauren wondered who was behind Daisy and Ryder's actions -- she wanted to know who was targeting her. She received an emergency call from Amber -- Amber couldn't locate the ball gown that had been ordered for one of their most important customers. Lauren told a disappointed Michael that she had to go to the boutique to find it. Before Lauren left, the Baldwins kissed.
Michael went to the ball and ran into Paul. Michael wondered why Nina wasn't with him. He explained that she had to go to Los Angeles on business. Paul wondered where Lauren was. Michael said that she had to go to the boutique, and that after she finished up there, she was going to meet Michael at the club. Paul wondered if there was any news on Daisy and Ryder. Michael said that they were behind bars, and would hopefully crack in a few days.
Paul told Michael that he had a loose end he wanted to tie up. Michael said, "Oh yeah, the pictures of you kissing Lauren, that all of our friends have seen." Paul said that he was really sorry. Michael reminded Paul that he had already apologized, and told him to move on. Michael walked away, leaving an uncomfortable Paul standing by himself.
On his way to the ball, Neil stopped by Ashley's. Ashley said that she didn't want to go to the club. Neil said that he hated the thought of Ashley being at home alone. Ashley was concerned that she might run into Sharon and Faith at the club. Changing her mind, she told Neil that she couldn't avoid Nick, Sharon, and Faith forever, and agreed to attend the ball with Neil.
Sharon, having freshened up in her suite, went downstairs to join the party. She ran into Neil and Ashley, who had just arrived. Sharon told Ashley that Nick was watching Faith. Ashley was thrilled when Sharon invited her to go look in on Faith. Phyllis overheard Sharon extending the invitation to Ashley.
Ashley went upstairs, where Nick greeted her and invited her in. Faith was asleep in her bassinet. Ashley became teary-eyed as she stared at the baby. She told Nick that she had forgotten to tell him and Sharon that Faith loved to eat mashed-up avocado. She said that she missed Faith.
Downstairs, Jack and Sharon visited with Phyllis. Sharon reported that Nick was watching Faith. Phyllis said that she thought that Sharon's telling Ashley that she could visit the baby was a lovely gesture. Jack was touched hearing about it. Phyllis asked Jack if she could speak with Sharon privately for a moment.
After Jack walked off, Phyllis said that she understood why it was important for Sharon and Nick to be the only people allowed to bond with Faith for the time being. Sharon made it clear that she wasn't trying to keep Faith away from Phyllis -- Sharon was just following the advice that the experts had given her. Phyllis said that when she did start taking care of Faith, that she would treat her with the same love that she felt for Noah and Summer. Sharon said that she knew that Phyllis was a great stepmother to Noah, and hoped that she would be as good a stepmother to Faith.
Sharon returned to her suite and watched as Nick talked with Faith. After they teased each other about whether Faith would end up being a Cubs fan or a Brewers fan, Sharon reported that she had a good talk with Phyllis. Sharon thanked Nick for allowing her the time to get out of the suite for a little while. Nick said that he had enjoyed spending time with Faith, and told Sharon that he thought it was nice that she had invited Ashley up to visit the baby. Nick handed Faith to Sharon, and told her to call him if she needed anything. Sharon told Nick to have fun with Phyllis. After Nick left, Sharon looked very alone in the room.
Lauren showed up at the ball and said that the mix-up about her customer's gown had been Daisy's fault. Michael said that even though Daisy was in jail, she was still trying to ruin their lives. Lauren asked if they could refrain from discussing Daisy for the rest of the evening -- she wanted to have fun. Michael said that he wanted to settle the issue of the pictures of her kissing Paul that their friends had seen. Lauren agreed that they should get that over with.
The Baldwins walked over to speak with Paul, Neil, Katherine, Victor, and Jack. Although Katherine and Victor insisted that Michael and Lauren didn't owe them any explanation, Michael said that Jack had been correct -- the photographs were a setup to try to discredit Lauren. Victor asked if Michael had any ideas about who was causing the trouble. Michael said that it had all been handled. Referring to Adam, Jack said that he wished that he could say the same about their problem.
After returning from her visit with Faith, Ashley rejoined Neil. She told him that she couldn't believe how much pain the loss of Faith was causing her. Neil said that she wouldn't be human if it didn't hurt. He told her that when he learned that Lily wasn't his biological daughter, he had tried to find solace in alcohol, but that didn't work. He said that you couldn't get rid of the pain -- you just had to walk through it. Ashley said that she knew that Faith was where she belonged, but she would always wonder about the baby who she had lost.
Michael and Lauren visited with Phyllis. Phyllis explained that Nick was seeing Faith. Initially, Lauren was confused, thinking that Faith was still living at the Newman ranch. Phyllis explained that Sharon and Faith had moved to a suite at the club, and that Nick was upstairs. Phyllis said that she was doing well, that Nick was being great, and that she felt secure in her marriage. When Michael walked off to take a phone call, Lauren told Phyllis that she was glad that Nick was "stepping up," but she couldn't believe that Phyllis was doing well. Lauren urged Phyllis to open up to her. Phyllis said that she wasn't going to allow her doubts to get to her anymore.
At the jail, Ryder and Daisy were placed in a cell together. Ryder said that he was worried about Jana -- he told Daisy that since the Baldwins were on to them, things were spinning out of control. "Mama Bear" entered their cell and said, "They certainly are. Do you know how much it is costing me to bail the two of you out?" Daisy promised that they would make it up to "Mama Bear." "Mama Bear" said, "Damned right, you will -- but now we're going to a party." She handed face masks to Daisy and Ryder.
After getting off the phone, Michael looked around frantically for Paul. He told Lauren that the call had been from the jail -- someone had paid the high bail amount to get Daisy and Ryder released from jail. As Lauren reacted, "Mama Bear," Ryder, and Daisy entered the Athletic Club -- their identities completely concealed by their face masks.
In his room at Genoa City Memorial, Adam used the pen he had taken from Nick to unlock his handcuffs. To himself, he said, "Better not back out now, Patty." Nikki entered his room. Thinking that she was there to gloat, Adam told her to leave. Nikki said that she was there to offer Adam one more chance at redeeming himself.
Nikki said that she wasn't there to lecture Adam about the choices that he had made -- those were between Adam and God. She said that if he had any shred of decency, he would tell her what had happened to Victor and Ashley's baby. Nikki guessed that Adam was carrying around a lot of guilt, and that he might feel better if he unburdened himself. Adam snidely said, "The sensitive approach. Nice." Nikki told Adam that she had known Hope well, and that Hope hadn't raised Adam to be an evil person.
Adam congratulated Nikki on using guilt, religion, morality, and his mother. He said that he had underestimated Nikki -- that she and Victor were a vicious team. Nikki said that Hope's dying wish had been for Victor and Adam to give each other a chance. She begged Adam to tell her the truth -- for Hope, for Victor, and for himself.
Adam wondered if Victor had sent Nikki, then brushed her off, saying "Don't you have a ball to go to?" When Nikki said that she knew that deep down Adam wanted Victor's approval, Adam placed his hand on his chest and sarcastically said, "You see to the very core of me." Nikki reminded Adam that Ashley had been his friend. Adam said that he cared about Ashley. Nikki said that there was something that Adam could do for Ashley -- tell her what had happened to the baby she had miscarried.
Adam said that he wasn't buying Nikki's "holier than thou" act. He said that Nikki owed him a favor -- that his evil deeds had driven a wedge between Ashley and Victor, and given Nikki an opportunity to "snatch" Victor up again. Adam predicted that Victor and Nikki's reconciliation wouldn't last long -- that Nikki was no longer a young, hot stripper. Nikki became incensed, and said that she had never met anyone as vicious as Adam. Adam said, "Except for the father of your children."
Nikki began yelling at Adam, and the guard entered the room to tell her that she had to leave. As Nikki left, Patty arrived with a garment bag. She told Nikki that she was there to supervise Adam's transfer to jail. Adam yelled after Nikki, and told her to send hugs and kisses to Victor. After Nikki was gone, Adam asked Patty if she had gathered up everything that he had asked her for. Patty said that she had. Adam said, "Good girl, Patty. Hand it over."
At the ball, Victor and Katherine joked that they couldn't recognize any of the guests. Victor said that he had almost kissed a complete stranger when he thought that she was Nikki. Nikki walked up behind Victor and joked with him about kissing a strange woman. Katherine said that she knew that Victor and Nikki had gone through a lot, and she toasted her two dear friends.
When Katherine left to mingle with the other guests, Nikki told Victor that she hadn't gotten any information from Adam. Victor said that Adam was pure evil. Nikki admitted that Adam had pushed her buttons and she had "lost it." Victor said that Adam had thrown away his last chance at redeeming himself. Nikki said that she didn't think that she was going to be able to enjoy the evening -- her heart just wasn't into it. Victor said that he couldn't blame her -- with the district attorney snooping around, he couldn't enjoy himself either.
Back at the hospital, Adam checked on the items that Patty had gathered up for him -- a tux, a mask, a cape, a hat, and a disposable cell phone. He wondered where the syringe with the sedative was. She was about to hand it over to him, but wondered if she could trust him.
Adam assured Patty that he wouldn't expose her unless she crossed him. He removed his handcuffs. Patty tried to inject Adam with the sedative, but, before she could, he grabbed her hand and took the syringe from her. He said that they had to act quickly.
The guard entered Adam's room and said that it was time to shackle Adam for transport to the county jail. He noticed that Patty was motionless on the ground. As the guard leaned over to check on her, Adam injected the guard with the sedative. The guard immediately fell to the ground, unconscious. Patty got up and handcuffed the guard. She and Adam dragged him into the bathroom.
Friday, April 2, 2010
At the Chancellor mansion, Chance told Murphy how nice he looked in his tuxedo. Chloe joined them and said that she wasn't planning on attending the ball -- she was feeling a little under the weather. Murphy, not quite believing Chloe's excuse, left and told her that he hoped she felt better. Chance asked Chloe to sit down -- he had some things he wanted to say to her.
Chloe mentioned that Chance had barely spoken to her since they returned from New York, where she had turned down his marriage proposal. She said that she certainly understood him giving her the cold shoulder. He said that he had been doing some thinking, but just as he was about to chat with Chloe, Delia began crying and Chloe rushed upstairs to tend to her.
Chloe rejoined Chance in the living room, and said that they had a lot to talk about. Chance said that she seemed to be "in two different places." Chloe wondered if her turning down his proposal meant that their relationship was over. Chance said that he wouldn't be honest if he said that her rejection didn't hurt him, but he didn't want to walk away from her because she hadn't accepted his proposal. Chance said that he had hoped that she would attend the ball as his fiancée, but he wondered if she wanted to go as his date. Chloe said that she would love to go with Chance.
In Adam's hospital room at Genoa City Memorial, Patty was frantic that people would realize the truth -- she had helped Adam escape. Adam told her not to worry. He walked up behind her and injected her with sedative -- he hadn't used the entire syringe on the guard. Patty immediately fell to the floor, unconscious. Adam wore a tuxedo and a hat. He rifled through Patty's wallet and took the cash. He grabbed his full-face Phantom of the Opera mask and left.
At the ball, Jack was concerned that "Emily" hadn't yet returned from the hospital. He told Victor and Nikki that she had gone to the hospital to supervise Adam's transfer to the county jail. Jack went to get a drink, to toast to Adam's imprisonment. Victor said that if there were any justice in the world, Adam would be in jail for a long time. District Attorney Pomerantz approached Victor and Nikki and told them that he was investigating what had happened on the night of Adam's mock trial at the Abbott cabin. The DA said that anyone who had been involved in the "kangaroo court" would be charged -- no matter how influential they were. Victor said that he would cooperate fully with the district attorney's office.
Nick, having returned from Sharon's suite, handed Phyllis a glass of champagne. He said that Faith was awesome. Phyllis said that it had been nice of Sharon to invite Ashley up to see Faith. As the Newmans watched Ashley and Neil dance, Nick commented that Ashley wasn't in a good place. Phyllis was happy that Ashley had Neil to lean on, and proclaimed him one of "the good guys," like Nick. Nick asked Phyllis to dance, even though she was wheelchair-bound. Phyllis laughed as Nick wheeled her to the dance floor, and Phyllis rolled around as Nick danced around her.
Victor joined Ashley and Neil and told them that Nikki had questioned Adam, but hadn't learned anything more about the night that Ashley had miscarried. Ashley said that whatever punishment was doled out to Adam wouldn't be nearly enough. They were unaware that District Attorney Pomerantz was listening to their conversation from a nearby table.
Sharon sat with Faith in her suite, and asked her, "Wasn't it fun seeing Daddy?" She looked over at the bed and remembered Nick playing with the baby there. She told herself that she was lucky to have Faith, and wasn't going to cry over what might have been with Nick.
Nikki stopped by Sharon's suite to visit the baby. She told Sharon that she knew the ground rules -- that she shouldn't hold the baby, because it might disrupt the bonding process between Sharon and Faith. Sharon remarked that it was probably a relief for Nikki to learn that Faith wasn't Victor's daughter, because Faith had represented an emotional tie between Victor and Ashley. Nikki, who seemed offended by the remark, said that she felt devastated for Victor and Ashley, but was happy that she had gained a new granddaughter in Faith.
Nikki asked Sharon if she planned to raise Faith with Nick. Sharon said no -- that she was on her own. Nikki mentioned all the recent instability in Sharon's life. She felt that had led Sharon to rush into marrying Adam. Nikki thought that Sharon might turn to Nick for stability. Sharon said that she had no expectations as far as Nick was concerned, and added that Nick was married to Phyllis and had his own family with her.
Nikki reminded Sharon that Nick had planned to leave Phyllis when he had learned that Sharon was pregnant with his child. Sharon said that Phyllis and Nick seemed to have worked out whatever problems existed in their marriage, and that all she hoped was that Phyllis would be a good stepmother to Faith. Nikki hoped that Sharon wouldn't use Faith as leverage to try to reconcile with Nick.
Downstairs at the ball, Paul and Michael were still in shock after learning that Daisy and Ryder had been bailed out of jail. Lauren called Gloria, who was watching Fen, to ask her to be extra vigilant in case Daisy or Ryder showed up at the Baldwins' apartment.
Across the room, "Mama Bear," in a full-face mask, told Daisy and Ryder, whose faces were also hidden by masks, that the Baldwins must have heard the "good news." Daisy said that the Baldwins had no idea who they were dealing with. After "Mama Bear" made sure that Daisy and Ryder were sure about their plan, she left them alone and went to mingle. Ryder said, "What we did to Jana was bad enough. And now this? Here?" Daisy told Ryder not to be such a wimp.
"Mama Bear" walked up to Nick, Phyllis, and Katherine and began making small talk. She suggested that they try the punch. Her conversation with the threesome was awkward, since they had no idea who "Mama Bear" was. "Mama Bear" asked how the fundraising was going. Katherine told her that they were taking in a lot of donations. "Mama Bear" said that it was definitely going to be a memorable evening. Nick, Phyllis, and Katherine exchanged suspicious glances.
The district attorney approached Nick and Phyllis about Adam's claims of what had happened the night of his mock trial. He told the Newmans that whoever was the first to tell the truth about what had happened would get off with the least severe charges. He said that someone from his office would be getting in touch with them.
Michael told Paul and Lauren that someone named Sarah Smythe had bailed Daisy and Ryder out. The name meant nothing to any of them. Paul walked away to check with his contacts on the police force to see if he could get any information about Sarah.
Murphy joined Katherine and Victor at the ball. Victor noticed that Victoria and Billy were sitting alone at a table and drinking champagne. Victoria continued to flirt with Billy, and accused him of trying to get her drunk. J.T. called Victoria and told her that Reed had a nightmare. He asked her to sing a song for Reed, and put the little boy on the phone. Victoria sang "London Bridge is Falling Down," and Reed took comfort from the sound of his mother's voice. Victoria thanked J.T. for calling her, and wondered if she should return to the house. J.T. said that there wasn't any reason for Victoria to go home. Victoria was clearly not pleased when she heard Mac's voice in the background.
While Victoria was on the phone with J.T., Victor walked up to Billy and reminded him that Victoria was going through a divorce and a custody battle. Billy told Victor that he and Victoria were merely friends. Before he walked away, Victor said, "You stay away from my daughter -- you got that?" Victoria rejoined Billy, and placed a comforting hand on his shoulder.
Later, Billy walked up to Victoria and accused her of avoiding him because of Victor's warning. Jack, still obviously concerned about "Emily's" whereabouts, walked by as he left her yet another voicemail message. After Jack hung up, he told Victoria that he was surprised that she was speaking to Billy after the article about Victoria that Billy had published in Restless Style. Billy joked that Victoria must be hard up for conversation. Jack said that Adam's mock trial had led to some strange bedfellows. When Jack and Victoria walked away, Billy stared at Victoria across the room and said, "I couldn't have put it better myself."
At the Hellstroms', Mac helped Reed make a paper airplane, which J.T. admired. J.T. held a pile of DVDs and told Reed to pick one out. As Reed made his decision, J.T. smiled at Mac. Mac called Katherine and said that she wasn't going to be able to make it to the ball. Katherine was concerned that something was wrong, but Mac assured her that everything was all right. After hanging up, Mac joined J.T. and Reed on the couch as they watched the video that Reed had chosen. They looked very much like a happy family.
Katherine and Murphy were thrilled when Chance and Chloe arrived at the ball. Chloe told Katherine what a wonderful party it was, and she and Chance handed Katherine an envelope containing their contribution to the Policemen's Benevolent Fund.
Adam, in full masquerade disguise, entered the Athletic Club. As he looked around the room, he saw nearly all of the people who had proclaimed him "guilty" at his mock trial. Nick, wheeling Phyllis, walked by Adam. When Phyllis dropped her purse, Adam gallantly picked it up and returned it to her.
Nikki returned from her visit with Sharon. At the bottom of the stairs, a frantic Jack asked her how long it could possibly take "Emily" to tranquilize someone. Nikki said that perhaps Adam was being difficult. Jack said that if he didn't hear from his wife soon, he was going to go to the hospital.
Nikki ran into Victoria, who was leaving the club. Nikki was concerned that something was wrong, but Victoria said that she just wanted to go home and spend time with Reed. After Nikki walked away, Billy, wearing a new costume and mask, blocked Victoria from leaving. He said that he wanted to make sure that Victor wouldn't recognize him. He convinced Victoria to remain at the ball. She and Billy walked back into the dining room. Adam watched the couple.
Katherine was busy trying to round up the people who were scheduled to speak at the event. She wondered where Emily was. Nikki said that she had seen Emily at the hospital in Adam's room. Ashley told Katherine that Jack hadn't been able to reach his wife. Neil said that Adam was probably stirring up trouble at the hospital, delaying Emily. Katherine said that they would have to start the evening's program without Emily. Victor joined the group and told them about the DA's investigation. He reminded Neil and Ashley that Adam's mock trial had borne fruit -- they had learned the truth about Faith's parentage. Victor expressed his hope that Adam would be jailed for a long time.
Neil and Ashley danced, and Neil wondered if she was feeling better. She said, "A little bit." Neil said that Ashley's fear of having people stare at her wasn't coming true. He told her that he was the only one in the room who couldn't take his eyes off of her. The couple kissed.
"Mama Bear" examined the buffet spread. Adam stood right next to her. She rejoined Daisy and Ryder, and chided her children for looking nervous. They assured her that they weren't getting cold feet. "Mama Bear" said that it was time for them to make their move. Daisy began walking, purposely bumped into Lauren, and dropped some food on Lauren's dress. Lauren shouted that the person who had bumped into her was very rude. Lauren, of course, didn't realize that it had been Daisy. Paul rejoined Michael and Lauren and told them that he was expecting a call, which would hopefully yield some more information on the mysterious Sarah Smythe.
Lauren went to the restroom to try to wash the food stains off of her dress. "Mama Bear" followed her in, and stared at her in the mirror.
While Lauren was washing up, Paul told Michael that he had learned that Sarah Smythe didn't seem to have a criminal history -- but her name had turned up in a police report about a car accident. The driver of the car had been Tom Fisher. Michael was stunned and said, "The person who bailed out Daisy and Ryder is..." Paul finished his sentence, saying, "...is somehow connected to Terrible Tom."
In Adam's hospital room, a guard helped Patty stand up. She asked what had happened, and the nurse who was examining her said that Patty would need to supply that information. Patty, who the nurse thought was Emily, said that Adam had grabbed the syringe containing the sedative and had stabbed her with it. Patty checked her purse and noticed that her cash had been taken. Patty called Jack, who was about to leave the Athletic Club for the hospital. Relieved to hear from her, Jack asked if everything was okay. Patty said, "No -- everything's not okay. Adam got away."
Sharon entered the living room of her suite and saw the back of a man hovering over Faith's bassinet. Sharon initially assumed it was Nick. The man picked up Faith and turned around. He removed his mask. Sharon was horrified to see that it was Adam.
