Sally’s Suite at the GCAC
Sally comes out of the washroom and asks Nick how he slept.
Nick says it wasn’t so great.
Sally wonders if it’s because she invited Adam to join them today.
She says that she just wanted to make sure that it’s not too much for Nick.

Victor tells Nikki that “that Spectra woman” cannot be trusted. He asks why everyone wanted to keep this from him.
Nikki says that everything will play out on his own, and Nick will realize that Sally isn’t the right one for him, and will break up with him.
Victor says he’s tired of the whole charade.
Nick walks in and asks what charade they’re talking about.
Victor says the one with Sally Spectra. He asks if Nick is mad, or if he’s doing it to torment his brother.
Daniel says Lucy doesn’t need to worry about him.
Lucy says she’ll always worry, and he needs friends like Lily to rely on.
Daniel asks if she’s trying to play matchmaker, she’s not that subtle.
Lucy says that subtlety is for losers.
Daniel says that if you blow trying for a relationship, you can lose a friend forever.
Lucy says that it’s very “Ross & Rachel”, and says that he doesn’t need to fall in love with someone else, but he’s lost people in his life and hates thinking of him being alone.
Daniel says he has other friends than Lily.
Lucy says to not lock out people from his life, and it’s how you blow something with a person like Lily.

Nick says he’s not doing anything to prevent Adam from being involved.
Nikki says that Victor’s being a hypocrite by being ok with Adam being involved with Sally, but not Nick.
Victor says he’s not ok with any of this.
Nick says that Adam pushed Sally away and has blown up his own family multiple times.
Victor asks how long he intends to carry on like this. Does he want to marry her and raise the child?
He says that should be Adam’s thing to do.
Adam says that if Sally drinks any more tea, they’ll have to name the baby “Earl Gray”.
Sally says if it’s a girl, they can name it “Chamomile”. She asks if he has any other ideas for a name.
Adam says he has some ideas but doesn’t want to share them right now. He says they should name the child together.
Sharon says that no matter what, Newman will be part of the legacy.
Adam says that hopefully, the baby will find a new way to breathe life into the Newman name.
Daniel asks when Lucy got so wise.
Lucy jokes and says that it runs in the family.
Daniel says he needs to get her to the airport.
Lucy says she wouldn’t mind one more day with him.
Daniel says that he’d like that too, but her mom would kill him.
He says she’s probably too old to hold her dad’s hand.
Lucy laughs and takes his hand as they leave the coffee shop.
Sally says she overheard the last bit of Adam’s conversation with Sharon and asks him if he has a preference… Boy or girl?
Adam says that if they have a daughter, she’ll be as smart as her mother, and if it’s a boy, he’ll be welcomed with love.
Sally says that she was worried about the father, and now she realizes that it doesn’t matter whether the child is a boy or a girl, it’ll be loved no matter what.
Nick says that he, Sally, and Adam are handling the situation just fine, there’s no need for Victor’s opinion.
Victor says he’s offended by the lack of respect and loyalty that Nick and Adam give to him.
Nick says he came to see Victoria, and he’s leaving. On his way out he tells Victor to leave Sally alone, she doesn’t deserve this.

There’s a knock at the door, and he answers it to find Lily there.
He says that he thought she had work.
Lily says that she’s pretty close with the boss and could use a break.
She gives him a hug and asks him if he’s ok.
Devon asks Esther where Lily is.
Esther says she’s not there. She says that when Mrs. Chancellor found out Devon was her grandson, she was determined to connect with him.
Devon says he was young and stupid at the time. He says that Katherine learned sign language to talk with him.
Esther says she went out of her way to get closer to him. She says it’s her long winded-way of saying, “Welcome home” to him.
She gives him a hug and they tell each other they love each other.
Lily asks if he had time to spend with Lucy before she left.
Daniel says he did, but he misses her already and feels alone now.
He says that he promised Lucy he’ll take care of himself.

She says that if Victor continues criticizing, he’s going to be their common enemy.
Victor says he doesn’t give a damn.
Nikki says if they band together, they could block his access to the child. She says it’d kill Victor not to be part of the child’s life. She hugs him tightly.
Sally says that Nick’s not there yet, they should just leave and she will text him to let him know to meet at the doctor’s office.
