Tucker comes into the lobby of Crimson Lights and makes a call to Devon making sure that they’re still on to meet.
Diane shows up. Tucker is surprised she’s still in town, as Jeremy Stark has been released.
Diane says that she’s not going anywhere.
She says that Jack and Kyle are on her side, so she’s not afraid.
She asks why he’s hiding behind the ladies, allowing them to do his dirty work, all because she couldn’t give him any information on Jabot.
He says she’s very resourceful, and could have found a way if she wanted to. He says she had no want to fulfill their part of the deal.
Diane reiterates that she’s not leaving town. She says he’s a real bastard.
Tucker laughs and says he knows he is. He says that with Phyllis’s recklessness, he’s sure they’ll come up with a plan to get her out of town.
He says that Ashley doesn’t want to hurt Diane, but she wants her to leave town. He says that Diane is being selfish, putting other people at risk.
Diane tells him that he should get over himself, and realize that she could be his ally.
He says that she’s just going to drive a wedge between Ashley and Jack. Diane says that he’s trying to get her to do that so that he can get Ashley alone.
Devon comes in, and Tucker introduces her to him. They leave together, leaving Diane alone.
She texts Jack, asking if they’re on for Dinner. He says yes, and to meet her at his place.
Phyllis comes in and says that she used a burner phone to call Jeremy Stark. Nikki and Ashley jump down her throat about doing it without talking to them first.
Ashley says she made a stupid mistake, and asks what she told Jeremy.
Phyllis says that she told him that she knows he’s been released, and Diane made a deal with the feds that got him arrested in the first place.
She says that he was very nice on the phone, and he asked how his “old pal” Diane Jenkins was.
She says that she told him that she was right there in Genoa City.
Ashley says that before Phyllis showed up, that she was talking it over with Nikki and they had their doubts that contacting Jeremy Stark was a good idea.
Phyllis says, “Don’t you think it’s a bit late for that?” She says that she’s gone through so much to get rid of Diane, and they have too.
She says that Jack has been duped by her, and that they wanted to use Stark to get her out of town.
Ashley and Nikki say they’re not sure this is the right way to do it.
Phyllis says that she’s playing the victim, and Nikki says that they hate it too, but they don’t even know if Diane really turned Stark into the feds.
Ashley asks what would happen if Jeremy Stark decides to come after them, since they don’t know what will happen if they’re wrong about Diane setting him up.
The doorbell rings, and Diane shows up.
Ashley lets her in, and Diane looks around. “Oh, I see the whole coven is here.”
She says that they need to talk. She says that their efforts to run her out of town have failed, they’ve only made her family gather around her.
They ask what she’s there for. She says that she’s been invited to dinner. They sneer and leave the house.
As she’s leaving, Phyllis tells her to make sure to enjoy herself.
As Diane is prepping herself to meet Jack, the doorbell rings. She goes to open the door.
It’s Jeremy Stark.
“Well hello Diane, did you miss me?”
Diane looks like a deer caught in the headlights as he greets her.

Sally is working at a table, when Adam comes in and says, “Still here, I see.”
Sally sarcastically remarks there’s nothing wrong with his eyesight. He asks if everything’s OK with her.
Sally says she’s working hard, and she’s not fine, in fact, she’s the opposite of fine.
Adam sits down at the table with her, and says that he doesn’t know what brought on her outburst.
She says it was his antics, including his marriage proposal that brought it on. She says that he feels no remorse for anything she’s done.
Adam says that he wasn’t trying to manipulate her by his proposal, nor drive her away from Nick.
Sally says she can’t shake the way he makes her feel. Adam smiles and says that she knows they should be together.
He says that he thought that the proposal would simplify things, and cut through the noise. She laughs and says it didn’t help.
Adam says that they need to talk and work things out, but it can’t be there.
Sally agrees that it needs to be resolved, and says, “Let’s do this.” They leave.
Adam and Sally arrive at her suite, and Adam says that he’s said his piece, and it’s her turn to talk.
She says that she never thought talking to him would be this hard. She always found it easy to talk to him before.
He says he’s still that person.
She says that what he’d said to her the other day really got to her, but she could tell that she really mattered to him.
Adam says that it breaks his heart that she didn’t realize it until now. He says he feels that they’re close to getting back everything they had, and more.
She says that she still feels a connection with him, and she still loves him. She says that’s why it’s so hard to forgive him for the way he acted.
Adam wishes that there was a way to take it back, but all he can do is apologize. He says, “I know we can finally get it right.”
Adam explains that he still wants the same thing… He wants her, and her alone.
She says she wants him to, and Adam leans in to kiss her. She responds, and they kiss.
Nick meets Victor at Society, and they talk business.
Victor says that he seems off his game, and wonders if it’s because of that “Specter woman”.
Nick says that it’s rude for him to refer to her as that.
Victor says that it’s bad form to fight over a woman like Sally Spectra, that she’s trying to drive a wedge between Adam and Nick to further her own interests.
Victor says that he had his people investigate Sally, and he has a dossier on her.
Nick says it’s outrageous that Victor’s done that.
Victor says that he found out that she faked an illness, and had a doctor in on it. He says, “You wonder why I have doubts about that woman?”
Nick agrees that she’s done some shady stuff, but that she’s changed. He says that he offered her money to start her business, but she refused.
Nick says that he won’t try to change Victor’s mind, but he says that Adam doesn’t deserve her.
Victor says that Sally is just a symptom of the fight between Nick and his brother. He says he’ll regret it if they don’t break it off.
Tucker looks around the living room, and Devon brings Dominic down to meet him. He says, “Meet your grandfather!”
Tucker says he looks just like his father, and says that he just wishes they had met earlier.
They lie down on the floor, where Dominic starts to play with some toys. Tucker is very happy to see him.
Tucker asks what Dominic likes to eat… Bananas and yogurt are his favorites!
Devon says that he likes to dance. Tucker laughs and says that he’s just like his father.
He says that Catherine would have been over the moon to see Dominic.
Tucker asks about Devon’s love life, about Amanda, and Devon deflects and doesn’t really answer the question.
Tucker says that he’s glad that Devon is happy, and it seems that he’s getting closer to Abby.
