In Delia's room at the hospital, Chloe beamed at Kevin as he donned various disguises and doled out candy to Delia, who was dressed up as a sugarplum fairy. Kevin stepped out to take a phone call. Billy, dressed as Santa, appeared. Kevin was not at all pleased to see Billy.
Kevin pulled Billy by his fake beard into a waiting room and reminded him that Victor had expected him to leave Genoa City. Billy, claiming he didn't fear Victor, said he planned to see his daughter. Kevin explained that he and Chloe had plans to attend a Halloween party at Jimmy's, so he didn't have time to help sneak Billy into Delia's room. Billy seemed surprised to discover that Victoria had taken charge of the Halloween party.
Billy covertly listened at the door after Kevin returned to Delia's room. Chloe announced that she and Kevin planned to marry. Delia was surprised and asked Kevin if he would become her daddy. Billy seemed crushed. Kevin promised to be a big part of Delia's life, but he reminded Delia that her father was lucky to have her as a little girl.
After Kevin and Chloe left, Billy entered Delia's room. Delia smiled and said, "Santa?" Billy played with Delia's stuffed animals and made her laugh. The nurse entered Delia's room, and Billy pretended to be a children's entertainer making his rounds. He promised to leave soon. Delia gave Billy a hug before he left, and he fought back tears after he told her to be a good girl.
On the patio at Crimson Lights, Ricky showed Phyllis the photos he'd snapped of Adam kissing Heather, who was quite drunk at the time. Adam had offered Heather use of his suite at the Genoa City Athletic Club, so she could sober up before heading home. Adam had arranged for Ricky to photograph Heather in a comprising position. Phyllis marveled at the images of the prosecuting attorney conducting herself inappropriately with a key witness in Sharon's case.
Ricky suddenly snatched the photos away from Phyllis and told her that she couldn't take possession until he knew what he'd receive in return. Phyllis promised to give Ricky a job at the magazine, an exclusive byline for the photographs, and an advance on his salary. Ricky insisted that Phyllis consider the advance as a bonus. Phyllis stepped out to take a call from her nanny.
Heather arrived just as Ricky slid the photos into a plain envelope and zipped them into a portfolio. Heather said she was surprised to discover that Ricky didn't have plans for the evening. Ricky claimed that he was playing it by ear. Heather asked Ricky to accompany her to a party, so they could cultivate a friendship and build a relationship as siblings. After initially declining Heather's offer, Ricky agreed to meet his sister at the party. He seemed very uneasy after Heather left.
After Phyllis returned, she agreed to give Ricky a bonus for handing over the photographs. Ricky refused and explained that they merely had a tentative negotiation regarding the photos and not a binding contract. Ricky added that the subject of the photos was his sister. Phyllis taunted Ricky for suddenly developing a conscience and snapped, "It didn't stop you from bringing me the pictures in the first place." Ricky promised to contact Phyllis after weighing his options.
Adam met with Sharon in the prison's visitation area. Sharon attempted to stop Adam in his tracks and told him he never crossed her mind, so she had nothing to say to him. Adam told Sharon that he didn't hate her. Sharon stood defiant and reminded Adam that he had hidden evidence that could help her, had testified against her, and had cruelly jilted her at the altar. Adam recalled happier times when they'd bonded and shared stories about their pasts. Adam admitted that he'd hurt Sharon.
Sharon seemed leery when Adam insisted that a piece of her still knew she could trust him. Sharon asked Adam what he wanted from her. He explained that the time they'd spent together had given him the fondest memories in his life, and he begged her to tell him if she still felt a connection. Without hesitation, Sharon said that she did.
Sharon admitted that she retained fond memories of happier times with Adam, but she reminded him that he'd taken her infant and made her believe that the child was dead. Adam reminded Sharon that she'd forgiven him long before. He added that they'd both hurt each other in the recent past. Sharon recalled their time in New Orleans and said she'd believed that he was the one person she could count on. Sharon cried that she'd put the past behind her, and the only thing that mattered was her future with Noah and Faith.
Adam explained that Sharon needed him in order to fulfill her hopes and dreams. Sharon asked about the memory card, and Adam noted that it would not resurface any time soon. Sharon told Adam to leave because there was nothing else for them to say to each other. After Adam left, Sharon broke down and cried.
At Jimmy's Bar, friends gathered for the annual Halloween costume party. Rafe told Victoria that he missed Billy in his regular role as emcee. Victoria, dressed as a little girl, pointed out that numerous spiked drinks were available to add cheer to the occasion. Lauren and Michael greeted Victoria and Nick. Victoria sadly noted that she'd signed her divorce papers. Victoria said that even though Billy and Reed were away, there was no reason not to enjoy the party. Lauren and Michael agreed. Victoria served herself a tall glass of green-hued zombie juice.
Victoria greeted Abby and declared that she looked charming dressed as a plump squash. Devon and Roxanne agreed. Victoria told Devon that it must have been difficult learning the truth about his biological father. She mentioned her brief time with Lucy and added that her she wouldn't trade anything for the time she'd spent with Lucy and Billy.
After Daniel arrived in a blue superhero costume, Eden and Abby sparred over how to best describe Daniel's elaborate costume. Abby pulled Eden aside and boasted that Noah had replaced Eden. The two women continued to exchange barbs until Eden grabbed Daniel and began kissing him passionately on the lips.
Avery was surprised to walk in on a private party, but Nick invited her to stay when she turned to leave. Nick and Avery bantered about past Halloween celebrations, and Avery mentioned spending a favorite one with Phyllis. Nick said he'd already taken Summer and Faith trick-or-treating. Angelo greeted Gloria and introduced his daughter, Angelina. Gloria told Angelo that Jeffrey had been away on an extended trip. Angelo comforted Gloria and said that Jeffrey was a moron.
Victoria stood on the stage and announced that it was time for karaoke. She singled out Noah, and he promised to take the stage before the party ended. Michael, dressed as a member of a criminal syndicate, took the microphone and, adopting a pattern of speech similar to Angelo's, said, "They better have the songs I like in that contraption or somebody's gonna end up in the wood chipper, capisce?" Angelo, angered, stepped forward and asked Michael if certain people he knew amused him.
Ricky arrived and spoke privately with Avery after she complained about complications with Sharon's trial. Ricky explained that the prosecuting attorney might be fraternizing with a star witness. Avery said, "Heather and Adam?" Ricky explained that he'd obtained some pertinent information from a reliable source. Phyllis arrived and noticed that Ricky and Avery were engaged in a private conversation. Phyllis said quietly to herself, "Keep your hands off my story, Sis."
Heather arrived, approached Avery and Ricky, and said, "I assume we're all off the clock tonight, right?" Ricky requested a private moment with Avery, so Heather offered to get him a beer from the bar. After Heather walked away, Avery said, "Not a flicker of guilt from you when she walked up. I don't know whether to be appalled or impressed." Ricky acknowledged that betraying Heather could ruin his relationship with his sister and their father. He added that Sharon, an innocent woman, was serving time and needed help. Ricky promised to let Avery know when he could offer help.
After Ricky walked away, Phyllis approached Avery, and the two argued. Nick walked up to the combative women and asked if they were all right. Before Avery left, she thanked Nick for buying her a drink. Phyllis was miffed at Nick for doing so and claimed he was being defensive after she expressed her displeasure at his efforts to befriend Avery.
Chloe and Kevin arrived as a bride and groom from the 1980s. Victoria, already somewhat intoxicated, announced to the crowd that Chloe and Kevin were engaged. Gloria was stunned, and Michael looked surprised. Kevin was visibly uncomfortable when Victoria added that Kevin had saved Delia's life. Victoria blathered on about how Chloe and Kevin were destined to be happy forever. The crowd seemed confused when Victoria added that Chloe wouldn't end up alone with a photo of herself in a bunny costume hidden away in a closet.
Angelina complained that she was bored, so Angelo convinced her to sing a song dedicated to Chloe and Kevin. Angelo told Chloe and Kevin that his daughter's talents would impress them. Angelina, singing off-key, chose to perform the song, "You Made Me Love You." Devon cringed, but Angelo beamed during his daughter's less-than-stellar performance. Kevin and Chloe seemed stunned. Angelina added a few dance moves to her act before she hit the last sour note. Angelo applauded. The crowd seemed relieved that it was over after Angelina left the stage.
Kevin grabbed a bottle of beer and chugged it down. Chloe asked him if he was all right. Kevin claimed that the events that had taken place during past couple of months had caught up with him. He added, "I'll be fine once this is all over." Chloe, still holding a gaudy bouquet, seemed concerned.
Phyllis approached Adam when he arrived and asked him what why he'd shown up. Before Adam could respond, Phyllis inquired about people, besides Sharon, who'd become his victims. Adam quipped, "Were you hoping I'd say that I have my eye on a saucy redhead?" Phyllis was shocked, and Adam walked away.
After Heather excused herself from Ricky's presence, Adam approached Ricky and asked him about the photos. Ricky, peeved, told Adam that he should have mentioned beforehand that Heather would be part of his "little production." Adam asked Ricky if he'd given the photos to Avery. Ricky said that he would when he was ready. Adam glared at Ricky when he walked away. Phyllis watched the two men closely from her vantage point across the room.
Billy, still dressed as Santa, arrived while Victoria was singing karaoke. Nick helped his drunken sister off the stage. Victoria proclaimed the party to be a hit, though she added that it wasn't the same without Billy. After Nick escorted a staggering Victoria out the door, Billy followed them.
Nick helped Victoria to her front door before he left. Victoria dropped her keys and struggled to unlock her front door. Billy arrived and unlocked the door. Victoria addressed her savior as Santa before collapsing onto her sofa. Billy held Victoria in his arms and kissed her on the lips. Victoria, semi-conscious, said, "Billy?" Billy acknowledged his presence just before Victoria passed out. Billy saw the divorce papers on the coffee table. He seemed crushed to discover Victoria's signature on the document. Victoria roused a bit and asked, "Billy, is that you?"
After Adam left, Sharon summoned Avery to the prison. Avery rushed to Sharon's side and asked what had happened. Sharon explained that Adam had stopped by claiming that he cared deeply for her. Sharon added that Adam had repeatedly mentioned that he'd helped her. Avery thought for a second and said she believed she knew why Adam was claiming that he'd helped Sharon.
