At Lily's apartment in the middle of the night, Lily meandered aimlessly around her living room carrying baby Matty. Neither the baby nor her mother could sleep. Lily showed the baby a frozen video shot of Cane and cooed that Matty's daddy had been an amazing man. Devon awoke. Lily told him that whenever she attempted to fall sleep, she would dream about Cane. Neil joined his family just as Lily cried, "Charlie and Matty's father is dead. It should not have happened, but it did; and I want to know why."
From Lily's front porch, Daniel sent Lily a text message and asked if he could enter. Neil and Devon went to the store for diapers and food. Lily told Daniel that she couldn't understand what was happening. Daniel agreed that it didn't make sense, and perhaps it wasn't really happening at all. Lily seemed puzzled. Lily told Daniel about the video recording Cane had made for the babies after she shut the door in his face and refused to see him.
Daniel suggested that Lily remember what a great man and father Cane had been and focus her attention on the sense of presence Cane had left behind. Lily cried that her babies would carry their father's name, but they would never know him. Daniel cradled Matty and reminded Lily that her children were surrounded by caring, loving family members.
Privately thinking about Lucy and her devoted adoptive parents, Daniel said, "Her father will always watch over her. He'll watch her grow up happy, healthy, and loved." Lily assumed Daniel was talking about Matty. Neil and Devon returned just as Daniel left. Lily, exhausted, went to bed. Devon acknowledged that the sorrowful expression on Lily's face reminded him of the look on Neil's face after Dru died.
On the front portico at the Chancellor estate, Chloe told Kevin she was miffed because he hadn't told her about Billy having adopted baby Lucy. Chloe was also stunned by Cane's death. Kevin recalled that both Cane's and Chance's untimely deaths had been horrible incidents. Exasperated, Chloe told Kevin she was no longer interested in becoming entangled with a man who might leave her for another woman or end up dead. Chloe remembered how Chance had broken her heart when he fell in love with Heather. Chloe added that Chance's death had crushed her.
In a bedroom at the Chancellor estate, Nina reunited Jill with Chance. Jill was shocked to see her supposedly dead grandson. Jill was further shocked to learn that Nina had known for a while that Chance was alive. Chance said that Phillip had also known the secret and had returned to Australia abruptly because he hadn't been able to bear watching Jill suffer. Jill promised to keep mum as she enveloped her grandson in a tight bear hug.
Jill was overwhelmed to learn that Chance had arrived in to town to give part of his liver to Ronan. Chance promised to stay safe and see Jill again soon. Chloe sauntered past Chance's bedroom and paused in front of the closed double doors, but she took off before Chance emerged with his head obscured by the furry-edged hood of a parka.
In the sitting room at Katherine's estate, Colin sat on the stairway landing, gazing at a family photo of Cane, Lily, Charlie, and Matty. Colin remarked to Katherine what a beautiful family the Ashbys were. Colin supposed that the children could be considered his grandchildren because Jill had embraced Cane as her son. Katherine explained that they had needed Cane, and he had needed them because he hadn't had family in Australia.
Near Lucy's stroller, Daniel learned during a hushed phone call to the lab that he was indeed the infant's biological father. Billy and Victoria noticed that Daniel seemed mesmerized by Lucy. Victoria suggested that Daniel hold the baby. Billy, concerned, asked Daniel if he was all right. Daniel said he should leave, so Cane's family could comfort each other.
When Daniel walked out, he heard Chloe angrily imploring Kevin to go home. After Daniel rushed away, Chloe insisted that she and Kevin could not be a couple because of his ties to Jana. Kevin pressed his lips against Chloe's and kissed her. Chloe pulled away and told Kevin that their relationship wasn't working. Chloe sobbed and told Kevin she was tired. Kevin promised Chloe that he would fix their relationship.
After Chloe went inside, she ran upstairs. Colin told Victoria and Billy that certain people needed solace. He explained that Jill was the opposite and that Lucy had provided comfort to her grieving grandmother. Victoria asked Colin if he had children. Colin didn't answer, but he seemed lost in thought. Victoria's attention was drawn to Lucy after she sneezed. Victoria and Billy took their baby home.
Jill walked downstairs. Katherine and Murphy noted that Jill seemed somewhat cheerful. Chloe bounced downstairs and poured herself a drink. She irately claimed she should have begun imbibing drinks hours beforehand. Jill prompted Chloe to talk about her problems. Chloe clammed up, but Jill said, "I know it's hard, but give yourself a break. Things are going to get better. There's always a second chance." Dejectedly, Chloe turned and said, "I think I am fresh out of those," as she huffed away.
Later, Chloe sat on the sofa, staring out into space. Katherine sat beside Chloe and comforted her. Katherine tried her best to dissuade Chloe when she claimed that she was about to give up on Kevin.
Upstairs in Jill and Colin's bedroom, Jill told Colin she would confer with Lily about choosing flowers and music for Cane's funeral service. Colin noted that it wasn't what he'd anticipated for their wedding night. Colin climbed into bed and snuggled with Jill. Colin nestled his chin on Jill's shoulder after she said, "There are little reminders everywhere, assuring me that everything will be okay."
Jana awoke on the sofa in Kevin's apartment. Having fallen asleep while waiting for Kevin, she checked her watch and called out his name. She was about to phone Kevin when she noticed a news segment being broadcast on television. Horrified, Jana learned that Cane Ashby and Blake Joseph, both Australian nationals, had died during a shooting outside First United Church. The broadcaster reported that both men had recently been fired from McCall Unlimited. Aloud to herself, Jana expressed sorrow forCane's bereaved family and friends, insincerely tacking Chloe's name to the list.
Jana greeted Kevin with a tight grip. Kevin resisted, but Jana refused to loosen her grasp and claimed she had been worried after learning about Cane's murder. Before Jana could protest, Kevin blurted out that they had been divorced for quite some time. Kevin explained that Jana had pushed him away after her rescue, so he had ultimately given up on their relationship.
Jana profusely apologized and claimed she hated herself for having hurt Kevin. Jana was crushed when Kevin explained that he'd been with someone else for a while. Jana sobbed pitifully. Kevin announced that he wanted to be with Chloe. Jana rested her head on Kevin's shoulder when he explained that he was prepared to make the transition as easy for Jana as possible.
At the hospital, Christine announced to Ronan, Heather, and Paul that Chance, a donor match, had already arrived in Genoa City. Ronan was relieved but stressed. Ronan worried about the upcoming drug ring's trial, which would put Chance, as the key witness, in harm's way. Heather stepped out of Ronan's room and remembered Chance having promised her that he would protect himself and return to her after the drug ring ordeal was over.
Paul's unexpected touch on Heather's shoulder startled her. Paul noted that Chance's return meant much more than just donating a portion of his liver and testifying in court. Heather insisted that she and Chance hadn't been a couple. Paul advised Heather to take things slowly.
Christine issued orders over a radio to the security staff, a few of whom she noted were dressed in hospital scrubs. Christine assured Nina, Heather, and Paul that Chance would remain safe, but Christine cautioned Nina not to celebrate until after the surgery was completed. After Heather went to tell Ronan about the security plan, Christine received a text message about Chance's arrival. Two uniformed men pushed Chance into the hospital on a gurney. Chance's face was covered by a sheet. Nina, grinning broadly, walked beside her son. Chance uncovered his face and shook Paul's hand.
In Ronan's room, Ronan drilled Heather about safety protocols put into place to ensure Chance's safety. Heather jokingly asked Ronan if he planned to get out of bed and beat up anyone that went near his brother. Heather was lovingly stroking Ronan's hand when Chance walked in. She embraced Chance, and he chided her for never giving up her search for him. Ronan and Chance jokingly bickered as they prepared to play a game called "Spit." Heather, Paul, and Nina arrived. Nina prided herself for having taught Chance the game. Nina smiled as she watched her sons interact.
Victoria and Billy phoned Lucy's pediatrician and learned that the baby likely had croup and should be exposed to the steam from a hot shower. Billy took off his shirt and turned on the hot water. As steam filled the room, Victoria claimed that if anyone ever tried to hurt her baby, she would fight to protect Lucy.
After Lucy began breathing easier, Victoria and Billy gazed at their infant. Victoria cooed, "She really is ours." Later, Victoria and Billy cradled their baby and marveled at her quick recovery. Victoria told Billy that her family meant everything to her, and she made Billy promise to never die.
