Nikki and Sharon refused to make peace, and Victor declared that wasn't going to help either one of them get out of jail. Lauren comforted Phyllis over the miscarriage and then Lauren realized that Daisy had to have heard Phyllis' cries from outside the door. Tucker discovered that Genevieve was going to pawn her jewelry to pay her hotel bill and agreed to help her. Daisy learned from Ricky's research that Phyllis had run down Chris and Paul with a car years before. When Daisy confronted Phyllis and Daniel with the information, they were unable to use Daisy's failure to act during the miscarriage against her. A mysterious woman put cash into a Swiss safe deposit box. Nikki and Sharon dropped the charges against each other. Kevin reported to Genevieve that someone had changed her bank account password.

Chloe panicked when the supplies for the gala never showed up. Carmine secretly arranged for the delivery to be delayed. Daisy watched a video of Ricky murdering Rachel, his college girlfriend, on his laptop. Adam told Victor he was planning to propose to Chelsea at the gala. Carmine pretended to hear a truck arrive and tried to trap Chloe in the trunk of a car to get revenge on Kevin for stealing Angelina from him. Ricky realized that Daisy had watched his murder tape. Abby released Chloe and then put herself in the trunk to create a distraction from the failed gala. Michael arranged to meet Daisy, who'd called him with urgent information. Daniel and Phyllis believed Daisy was going to tell Michael about Phyllis running down Chris and Paul and were out to stop her. Michael found a scarf in the alley, but Daisy failed to appear at the arranged spot. Ricky returned to his hotel room, anxious about what he'd done.
June 25 to June 29, 2012
At the gala, Chloe reported that Carmine had attempted to kidnap her. Soon after, everyone learned that Carmine had taken Abby instead. Victor flew in Ronan Malloy to get Abby back. Carmine was shocked to learn that Abby had replaced Chloe in the trunk and was diverting attention from the failed gala by claiming to be kidnapped. Carmine was a wanted man. Chelsea accepted Adam's proposal. Michael found Daisy's scarf -- with Daniel's blood on it -- at the place where he was supposed to meet her. Ricky was pleased that nobody was reporting Daisy's disappearance, then he used Daisy's credit card and phone to make it look like Daniel was covering his tracks after doing away with his wife. Daniel was arrested when the evidence piled up, including Daisy's email to Kevin, warning that if she were harmed, Daniel had done it. Daniel insisted he was innocent, but even Kevin doubted his friend. Eden investigated Ricky's connection to Daisy. In Ricky's hotel room, she found Daisy's wallet and phone. Ricky caught Eden in a lie, saw the phone and wallet, and announced that he'd have to kill Eden. When Eden failed to meet Kevin in the park, Kevin asked Paul to see if she was with Ricky. Paul used a passkey to get into Ricky's room and found Eden's knapsack. Just as Ricky was about to murder Eden, Paul burst in to stop him. Carmine begged Abby to tell the truth about the abduction before it went too far. Devon made peace with Harmony. Tucker was supportive of Ashley during Abby's disappearance.

Abby called Ashley to say that she was not in danger and that she'd faked the kidnapping to draw attention away from the failed gala. Ashley informed Jack and Victor that Abby was okay and that Victor had been right about the incident being a publicity stunt. Victor refused to enable Abby this time. Paul was horrified that Ricky had died from the fall out of the window. Eden regained consciousness but had no memory of what Ricky had said or done. Paul explained that he had shot Ricky to prevent him from killing Eden. Michael stated that the gun Paul had used the serial numbers filed off, making it seem like Paul had planned to shoot his son. Lauren told Michael that it was her gun. Michael feared that Lauren would do jail time for violating her probation. Cane was upset by a mysterious email from "Shirl" to "Claude," the secret nicknames he and Samantha had used for each other as kids.

The police arrested the pair, but Abby was able to make a deal to do community service. Michael planned to prosecute Carmine for kidnapping.

July 9 to June 13, 2012
When Heather went through Ricky's personal effects, she showed Christine a copy of Phyllis' credit card statement from December 1994, and Christine realized Phyllis had rented the car that had hit her and Paul back then. Tucker agreed to sign the divorce papers when Ashley said she only wanted to be friends with him. Christine told Paul that Phyllis might have wanted to kill her because Danny had kissed her the day Chris was to marry Paul. Phyllis denied everything when Christine confronted her with the credit card statement. Michael concurred with Christine about the credit card statement and found further evidence that Phyllis had driven the rental car. However, the statute of limitations had expired, and Michael could not prosecute Phyllis. Abby asked Rafe to get Carmine's sentence reduced, but he explained that Chloe was going to testify against Carmine, and he was facing jail time. Abby asked Chloe to talk to Carmine and give him a chance to apologize. Michael warned Phyllis about Christine, but Phyllis refused to confess to anything, swearing to everyone -- Nick, Avery, and Michael -- that she was innocent.

Later, Nick slugged Billy for betraying Phyllis, unaware that the office cameras had recorded the assault. Ashley insisted that Jack could not be the CEO of a Jabot/Beauty of Nature merger, so Jack met with two Jabot board members to convince them to vote his way.

Tucker tried to help Sharon when Victor disappeared on their wedding night. A drunken Sharon went to Nikki's wedding, looking for Victor, and Nikki pushed her into the pool. Billy's first episode of Restless Style was a success, even though Victoria objected to his using family information as gossip. Phyllis freaked out when Billy suggested on the Restless Style television show that he had bombshell information about her case. Chelsea told Victoria that she and Adam were trying to get pregnant. Adam and Kevin hustled to launch the TagNGrab website before the competition. Phyllis refused to sleep with Tim, but agreed to pay him blackmail in exchange for the confession tape. Nick was incensed when he caught Phyllis paying off Tim after wiping out Summer's trust fund to get the money. Avery was disgusted with Phyllis' lies and quit her case to handle Paul's defense.

Nikki was not pleased with Sharon's efforts to find Victor, so she took over. Kay warned Nikki to attend to her marriage to Jack. Harmony and Neil had their first official date. Avery went to the Newman ranch to collect Victor's legal work, but Sharon denied that she'd signed a pre-nup. Later, Nikki found Victor's phone on the ranch and used it to send a fake text message to Sharon, saying -- as Victor -- that the marriage was over. Sharon was furious about the message, thinking Victor had dumped her. Sharon discovered the pre-nup in Victor's briefcase and realized that she'd get nothing from their brief marriage. Sharon burned the pre-nup, nearly getting caught by Nikki. Eden agreed to try hypnosis to remember the night of Ricky's death. Eden became extremely frightened. Despite Kyle's protesting, Eden continued but could only recall intense fear of Ricky. Eden hoped her words would be enough to help Paul, but Christine had doubts. Christine said goodbye to Paul before returning to D.C., confident that he'd be a free man soon with Avery handling his defense. While his family was in the dark about his whereabouts, Victor stood alone at an industrial loading dock and contemplated what to do.
August 13 to August 17, 2012

Kevin knocked on the door to the penthouse as Phyllis panicked, thinking that Tim was dead.
August 20 to August 24, 2012
Sharon cited legal precedent and was named acting CEO of Newman Enterprises while Victor was away. Sharon objected to the way Nick reacted to her new role, and Tucker suggested that she fire Nick.

Later, Beth provided a sketch to the police of the salesman. Kevin forced Phyllis to become part of TagNGrab, reminding her that she owed him. Phyllis lied to Nick when he asked her point-blank if she'd had any part in Tim's death. Michael and Ronan determined that Tim had been moved post-mortem to make it look like he had died alone. Michael was convinced Phyllis was involved because she had a weak alibi and a lot to gain with Tim dying before his deposition. Tucker revealed his takeover plan of Newman to Genevieve, cutting her in on the deal. Genevieve went on the road at Tucker's behest to find Victor. Nikki failed to find Victor in Kansas at Hope's farmhouse. Jack refused to take Nikki's calls. At a Los Angeles waterfront bar, Victor was broke and in bad shape.

Nikki returned from her search of Victor's sanctuaries. Jack, who was disappointed about his doctor's prediction that he'd never fully recover, turned on Nikki and said that their marriage was over. Victor was grateful to Sister Celeste for her help. Genevieve followed a lead to the L.A. bar and found Victor. She noticed him grabbing his chest and helped him. He introduced himself as "Christian" and didn't recognize Genevieve. Kyle moved back in with Jack and told his father about Sharon's bizarre behavior, like swiping Kyle's driver's license.

At the mental institution, Sharon was stunned to see Daisy. Cane warned Jack that he risked losing Beauty of Nature and Jabot while buying up Newman stock.

Ronan stunned Nick by revealing he was lying for Phyllis because he was in love with her. Summer learned about Ronan and Phyllis from Fen. Unable to tell Summer the truth, Nick and Phyllis lied about the affair and Summer rebelled by buying vodka. Ronan caught Summer and Fen with the bottle and saved them from being arrested.

Victoria rehired Nick and ensured that neither of them could be fired without approval from the Newman board. Sharon was stunned to discover Daisy was hiding at Fairview to avoid Ricky's murderous rage. Sharon informed Daisy that Ricky had been killed. Dr. Laurents released Sharon from Fairview, and she immediately returned to Newman Enterprises. Daisy took an overdose of pills to get transferred to Genoa City Memorial Hospital, where she hoped to escape.

Heather and Daniel's romance was derailed by the news that Daisy was alive. Kevin visited a comatose Daisy at Fairview and promised to protect her. Kevin would not allow Paul to bother Daisy with questions about Ricky. Paul went to see his sister, Patty, and when she created a diversion, Paul was able to sneak into Daisy's room. When Daisy awakened, she told Paul that she'd seen the video of Ricky murdering Rachel, and that was why Ricky had wanted to kill her, too. Paul took the information to Chris, Lauren, and Michael.

The trial was delayed because the judge became ill, and everyone in the courtroom was stunned when the replacement judge dismissed the case.
