Victoria was not amused when she returned home and discovered that Billy, sporting chartreuse swim trunks, had transformed their living room into a Jamaican-themed beach hut. Steel-drum reggae music prompted Billy to sway to the beat. Billy told Victoria that he could offer endless apologies and beg for her forgiveness, but he noted that doing so had thus far been unsuccessful. Holding two umbrella-topped glasses of rum-infused punch, Billy said he hoped to rekindle memories of their time spent in Jamaica in 2010.
Victoria, still reeling from the antics she'd just witnessed at her parents' new condo, told Billy that Victor had invited Adam and that Sharon had crashed the party and attempted to apologize for her transgressions. Billy again entreated Victoria to harken back to their blissful days in Jamaica. Victoria, frustrated and emotionally spent, headed upstairs to check on Johnny.
When Victoria later descended the stairs, she plopped down in a padded chaise next to Billy and quickly sipped half of the fruity punch from the glass Billy handed her. Victoria noted that the "old" Victoria would've avoided the party altogether and just sent a housewarming gift. Billy interjected, "There's a new Victoria?" She nodded and explained that she'd hoped to transform herself after enduring a month of adversities. Victoria added that even though she'd braced herself, she'd been deeply hurt by her family's cruel actions that felt like a slap in the face.
Victoria, still angry at Billy, sprang from the chaise. Billy stood, took Victoria in his arms, and embraced her. Victoria backed away from Billy and claimed that the drink had made her feel sad. Becoming tipsy, Victoria's mood softened. Victoria chuckled when she recalled that they'd imbibed too much coconut milk during their trip to Jamaica. In a flashback, Victoria also remembered that she and Billy had celebrated with a newlywed couple and had eaten rum cake with them.
Victoria laughed and told Billy that she'd realized she was in love when she saw him in his boxer shorts. Billy told Victoria that he had decided she should be his wife when she laughed at his "Kiss me, I'm Irish" boxer shorts. Billy added that he'd pursued Victoria even though he had known he wasn't good enough to be her husband. Billy turned up the music, and Victoria danced with him. The couple laughed and gyrated playfully to reggae songs. Billy begged Victoria to make a clean start with him. Victoria said she wasn't ready. After Victoria went upstairs, Billy, dejected, began extinguishing the torchlights.
At Avery's condo, Nick snuggled with Avery on the sofa and rhetorically asked if his father had ever in his life experienced a similar moment of peace. Avery suggested that Nick's idea of tranquility greatly differed from his father's. Nick quipped that his father preferred global thermonuclear war. Nick mentioned Sharon's unfortunate appearance at his parents' party. He explained that he knew what was wrong with Sharon and still couldn't believe it. Avery assured Nick that he could discuss the matter with her whenever he was ready. Avery added that she'd experienced a similar crisis with her father.
A distressed Summer stopped by and told Avery that she needed to discus Chelsea. Nick offered to let Summer converse privately with her aunt, but Summer explained that when she arrived at her grandparents' party, Chelsea had angrily backed away. Nick embraced his shaken daughter. Summer said she feared that Chelsea might never forgive her for causing the accident that had led to Chelsea's miscarriage. Avery served Summer a mug of hot cocoa. Summer admitted that she'd been wrong to blame her mom for the accident. Summer cried, "I got in that stupid car, and I wasn't watching where I was going."
Summer mentioned the loss of Cassie. Nick explained that life continued to move forward and that everyone needed time to heal. Summer replied, "Chelsea will always hate me, and so will you and Mom." Summer said she feared that everyone probably hated her because she even hated herself. Nick urged Summer to forgive herself.
Nick caringly reminded his daughter of her numerous good traits, including an instance when Summer had graciously awarded a trophy she'd won at a costume contest to a girl that couldn't afford a costume. Nick recalled that he and Summer always said to each other, "I love you more than infinity." Summer raced to her dad and hugged him tightly.
After Summer left, Avery kissed Nick tenderly. Nick told Avery that she was great with kids. Avery recalled that she'd once had an imaginary child. Laughing, Avery added that Nick reminded her of the imaginary boyfriend she'd created in her mind for her imaginary daughter.
Recalling more details of her past, Avery told Nick that she'd become a great cook to spite her father because she'd begged for an Easy-Bake Oven each Christmas when she was a child. Avery noted that her dad had always claimed that the toy oven wasn't practical.
Nick told Avery that he enjoyed spending time with her because she made him forget his problems. Nick added that he'd always be tied to Sharon and Phyllis because of his children. Avery insisted that she'd completely severed ties with her ex because their relationship hadn't ended well.
Nick asked Avery about her first love. Avery laughed nervously and sprang from the sofa to make coffee. Avery seemed uneasy and reminded Nick that he'd suggested they both forget their pasts. Nick left after Avery told him that she needed her rest.
Summer holed up in Avery's storage room instead of meeting her friend for pizza. Boxes of documents bore labels denoting that each belonged to A. Clark. One box toppled over and its contents spilled out. Summer began collecting the items and returned them to the box. Summer paused when she found a stack of yellowed letters tied with a lilac ribbon. Summer read one of the letters from a man named Dylan.
At Sharon's house, Chelsea showed up, stepped through the open front door, and watched as Sharon and Adam kissed passionately. A stunned Chelsea turned to leave, but Adam grabbed her arm and asked her to wait. Sharon readily accepted blame for the kiss. Chelsea yelled at Sharon and slapped Adam's face. Chelsea confronted Adam and cried, "I never want to hear another word out of your lying mouth!" Chelsea left, and Sharon pleaded with Adam to go to his wife. Sharon assured Adam that she'd be all right.
Noah arrived soon after Adam left and asked his hysterical mother what Adam had done to her. Sobbing, Sharon assured her son that Adam had done nothing wrong. Sharon picked up Faith's drawing and explained that her touchstone no longer helped her to remain calm. Sharon frantically sifted through various items on her desk and cried, "I've got to find something else."
Noah took his mom's hand, placed it over his heart, and noted that he would be her ever-present touchstone. Sharon calmed herself and apologized for upsetting her son. Sharon recalled that she'd done many awful things. Noah reminded his mom that she suffered from a mood disorder that could be managed. Noah later served his mom a cup of tea and encouraged her to take her medication and give herself time to improve.
When Adam returned home, Chelsea was headed toward the door with her packed luggage. She told Adam that she should have left him weeks before. Adam insisted that he wasn't in a relationship with Sharon. He claimed that Sharon had kissed him when she tried to calm herself. Chelsea replied, "Admit it, Adam. You were into that kiss as much as she was."
Adam recalled the moment he had realized he couldn't live without Chelsea. Adam described the intense feelings he had experienced when he rescued Chelsea from the frozen lake. Adam insisted that he'd felt awful when he saw Chelsea walk out at Sharon's. Adam begged Chelsea not to walk out of their home.
Chelsea recalled that her feelings for Adam had deepened the day he'd encouraged her to earn a GED. She admitted knowing that Adam had flaws. Chelsea said she believed they'd be a perfect match because she and Adam could become better people together. Adam nodded.
Chelsea expressed relief that Sharon, the third person in their relationship, would soon be committed. Adam resolutely defended Sharon. Chelsea cried, "You can't have it both ways, Adam. You have to make a choice." Adam told Chelsea that he'd made his choice. Chelsea recalled that Sharon, a raging lunatic, had set fire to the ranch house. Adam cautioned Chelsea not to mention Sharon's role in the fire to his father or Nikki.
Chelsea told Adam that everyone deserved to be protected from a dangerous psychopath. Adam, growing frustrated, explained that Sharon needed treatment, patience, and understanding. Sobbing, Chelsea noted that Sharon was in the way. Adam asked Chelsea to look him in the eyes and begged her to truly believe that she could trust him. After Adam went upstairs, Chelsea grabbed her coat and walked out the front door.
Later, Chelsea stepped off an elevator and walked toward the front door of Victor and Nikki's penthouse.
