Tucker tried unsuccessfully to contact Devon. Ashley comforted Tucker and advised him to give Devon time to adjust to the news. Tucker berated himself for not having tracked down his son years earlier. Ashley expressed her disapproval of Katherine's decision not to tell Tucker that Devon was his son.
At Crimson Lights, Cane and Malcolm overheard Eden leaving a phone message for Daniel. Eden read aloud, from her laptop, part of Phyllis' article on Restless Style about Devon being the long-lost son of a billionaire. Malcolm was livid at Phyllis for having divulged information he'd shared in confidence. After Malcolm left, Daniel arrived and read the article. Cane asked Daniel to check on Lily.
At Restless Style, Nick disapproved of Phyllis' decision to publish the online article about Devon and Tucker. Phyllis claimed that her business was to break big stories. Nick told Phyllis that she'd published the story behind his back because she wanted to pick a fight with him. Phyllis asked why Nick thought she wanted to fight with him. Nick explained that every time he and Phyllis grew closer, she'd always found a way to ruin it. Nick claimed that Phyllis seemed to believe that she didn't deserve to be happy.
Nick mentioned Avery, and Phyllis became livid. Nick warned Phyllis to prepare herself because she was about to be confronted by the people she'd hurt. Nick left to work out at the Genoa City Athletic Club. Malcolm stopped by and confronted Phyllis first. Phyllis reminded Malcolm that he'd said the news about Devon was bound to get out. Malcolm cried, "That wasn't license to throw my family's business in the streets. Devon didn't deserve this and neither did my brother."
Yolanda, waiting tables at a diner, told her boss, Bud, that she preferred to be called Harmony. As Harmony attended to patrons, she stopped in her tracks when she noticed Phyllis' online article displayed on a woman's laptop. Harmony exclaimed, "Oh, my God!" Bud shouted at Harmony to pick up and serve her orders. Harmony, upset, asked Bud for a few days off to help her son, but her boss adamantly refused.
At Lily's, Neil advised Devon not to make harsh judgments about Tucker and Yolanda. Devon, indicating Lily, Neil, and Sofia, claimed that they were his only family. Katherine phoned and pleaded with Devon to stop by the hospital. Neil cautioned Devon to tread carefully with Katherine, who was frail. Lily left to pick up the twins from the sitter.
Sofia asked Neil if he blamed her for what had happened to Katherine. Neil said he couldn't understand why Sofia had chosen to align herself with Tucker. Sofia explained that no one knew Tucker like she did, and she offered to help Devon get to know him. Neil replied, "No!" Neil claimed that Sofia only cared about helping Tucker. Sofia assured Neil that she cared about Devon, too. Neil reminded Sofia that Tucker had stolen his mother's life's work out from under her.
Sofia offered to speak to Tucker and advise him to give Devon time to adjust to the news about Tucker being his father. Neil claimed that blood didn't make someone a father. Sofia asked, "Is that how you're going to feel if this baby turns out to be yours, but Malcolm and I decide to raise him?" Sofia added that she couldn't imagine how Tucker must feel. Neil said he only cared about how Devon felt.
Neil couldn't find his cell phone, so he went to the nursery to search for it. While Neil was out of the room, Sofia experienced labor pains. When Neil returned, Sofia, having recovered, asked if she could stay to make a few phone calls. She promised not to contact Tucker. Just after Neil left, Sofia collapsed onto the sofa in pain. She summoned Malcolm to meet her at Lily's. When Malcolm arrived, Sofia told him the baby was about to be born. She apologized to Malcolm and told him that more than anything, she wanted to baby to be his.
At the hospital, Devon ran into Abby outside Katherine's room. Abby assured Devon that Katherine would recover. Devon replied, "I am sure my grandma will be fine." Abby was taken aback. Devon explained that Katherine was his grandmother and had known for a while that he was her grandson. Devon added that Katherine had purposely withheld the information from Tucker, as well. Abby was dismayed when Devon explained that Tucker had not ever bothered to search for the child he knew existed.
At Tucker's, Ashley served coffee and assured Tucker that Devon would call soon. Ashley promised Tucker that he would have a future with his son. Tucker was unconvinced, but Ashley explained that after Devon got to know Tucker like she did, he would grow to love his father. Ashley added that Tucker was a great man and would be a wonderful dad. Ashley and Tucker expressed love for each other and kissed.
Abby, incensed, arrived and told Tucker that he was a pathetic excuse for a dad. She added, "What you have done to Devon makes me sick!" Abby told Tucker and Ashley that Devon was distraught. Abby asked, "What kind of sleaze has a kid with someone he barely knows and then acts like it never happened?" Tucker defended himself and said that it had not happened that way. Abby berated Tucker for leaving Devon with a drug-addicted mom, just so Tucker could live like a rock star.
Tucker stood aghast as Abby said, "I will never, ever accept you into my life or my mom's life." Disgusted, Ashley told Abby that she had no right to say anything about Tucker and Ashley's relationship. Abby warned her mother that Tucker wrecked people's lives. Tucker's public relations' manager sent a text message about Phyllis' article. Tucker, upset, said, "It's out." Abby asked, "Did you think you were going to keep it a secret?" Tucker sighed and said, "Devon. They're going to be all over him."
Before Devon entered Katherine's room, he recalled, in a flashback, discussing the music deal he'd made with Katherine. Tucker had said that Katherine's aim was revenge when Devon had excitedly announced that Katherine had hired him to head her music label. Devon had believed Katherine when she told him that he had the potential to make the venture successful. Tucker had warned that Katherine's foray into the music business was bound to fail, thus ruining Devon's reputation.
When Devon entered Katherine's room, she humbly thanked him for showing up. Angrily, Devon asked Katherine how she could have used him to get back at her son. Devon cried that Katherine had never truly believed in his talent. Katherine replied, "That's not true." Katherine began crying and explained that her aim had been to protect her grandson from Tucker, who was ruthless and unforgiving.
Katherine told Devon that Tucker hadn't even searched for his son, so she wasn't about to let him hurt Devon more that he already had. Devon sarcastically responded that it felt "so much better" to have Katherine hurt him, instead. Devon told Katherine that she should have told him the truth. She asked Devon if he would have been able to keep it a secret for the rest of his life.
Devon cried that he'd thought he could prevent anyone from ever hurting him again after suffering so much sorrow early in his life. He said that what Katherine had done was the worst thing that had ever happened. Cane cracked open the door, but he didn't enter the room. Katherine begged Devon to tell her how to set things right. Devon said that Neil deserved an apology. Devon added that he wanted nothing from Katherine. After Devon left, Cane told Katherine that he'd overheard the conversation. Cane offered to help, but Katherine cried that no one could help.
Devon went to his apartment. His lip quivered as he unlocked the door and stepped inside. Devon seemed dumbfounded as he stood in his living room. When Devon heard a noise, he turned and saw his mother standing outside the screen door. Devon opened the door. Harmony removed her sunglasses and said, "Hey, baby."
Neil stopped by to see Katherine. She was elated to see him until he handed her his letter of resignation. Katherine pleaded with Neil to discuss the matter. Neil said, "Katherine, I wish you well, but I can't work for you any longer." Katherine, in tears, told Neil that he was her friend. Neil told Katherine that she had once been his friend. After Neil left, Katherine sobbed pitifully.
As Neil walked past the nurses' station, a nurse called out to him and said that he'd left his phone behind during a previous visit. Neil checked his phone and saw that he had several missed calls. Sofia and Malcolm walked in. Malcolm called out to a nurse and explained that Sofia was in labor. Sofia held her belly and told the nurse that her contractions were growing stronger. Neil turned to face Sofia and Malcolm. Shocked, Neil said he'd thought that the baby wasn't due for another month.
After Lily arranged to leave the twins with the sitter a while longer, she met Daniel at the coffeehouse. Lily and Daniel agreed that Phyllis had likely exposed every detail of Devon's life. Daniel admitted that Cane had asked him check on her. Daniel explained that Cane was worried that the media might dig into Lily's life, too. Lily assured Daniel that she could handle the fallout. Daniel told Lily that Cane could have tried to maneuver his way back into her life by offering a supportive shoulder.
After Daniel left, Eden told Lily that she agreed with what Daniel had said about Cane. Eden added that Cane was crazy about Lily. Lily explained that Cane's feelings for her weren't the problem. Later, after Lily left, Eden bumped into Ricky. Ricky caught Eden's laptop as it slipped from her grasp. After Ricky walked away, Eden glanced at him before she headed out the door.
Cane returned to the coffeehouse and met with Lily. Cane asked Lily if she was all right. Lily seemed stunned after learning that startling news about Devon had been published on an online tabloid. Lily embraced Cane and thanked him for his support. Cane seemed surprised by Lily's change of heart.
Daniel showed up at Restless Style to confront his mother about publishing the article about Devon. Daniel said he knew that Malcolm had unknowingly become her anonymous source for the story. Phyllis defended herself and claimed she hadn't written anything that wasn't true. Phyllis added that the story would appear in every news outlet the next day, anyway.
Daniel, irritated, asked Phyllis when she had stopped caring about her friends and family. Phyllis threw her arms in front of her face and said, "Whoa, you know I care about you!" Daniel, snippy, told his mother that the only thing she cared about was getting what she wanted. He added that she'd betrayed family and friends to get custody of Lucy, to win Nick away from Sharon, and to out-scoop her competition in order break Devon's story. Daniel cried, "I hope you're happy!" Phyllis, stunned, grabbed her purse and keys and stormed out.
In the dining room at the Genoa City Athletic Club, Avery and Ricky sorted through a mountain of research collected on prospective jurors. Ricky asked to take a break, but Avery explained that he should complete his task. Nick, his gym back slung over his shoulder, stopped by and asked Avery and Ricky if they were working on Sharon's case. Ricky quickly said that working was all Avery ever did. When Nick turned to leave, Avery quickly announced that she and Ricky were about to take a break. Ricky left, and Nick took a seat at Avery's table.
Nick promised not to argue with Avery about her decision to represent Daisy. Nick admitted that he'd just had an argument with Phyllis and was prepared to discuss anything else. Avery mentioned Sharon's case and said she was planning a defense strategy. Avery knocked over a glass of water, which splashed onto Nick's jacket. When Avery attempted to use a napkin to absorb the water from Nick's jacket, she knocked over another glass and thoroughly doused Nick. Avery profusely apologized.
Phyllis rushed into the Genoa City Athletic Club and was relieved to see Nick standing in the dining room. Nick was dabbing his damp jacket sleeves with a napkin. Just as Phyllis was about to approach Nick, Avery rushed toward him with a handful of dry napkins. Avery helped Nick dry the remaining wet spots on his clothing and giggled at the memory of having knocked over two glasses of water. Phyllis was taken aback when she saw Avery and Nick together. Phyllis quickly turned around and walked out the door.
