The Neil Winters Jazz Lounge at the GCAC
Victor meets with Tucker, and Victor talks about what a strange place it was to meet.
Tucker says that he’s there for the booze and the atmosphere.
Victor says he’s looked through the contract and signed it. He asks Tucker to sign it.
Tucker says Victor seems to be enjoying this.
Victor says he doesn’t give a damn what Tucker thinks, just sign, and the company will be his.
Lily asks if Daniel remembers his dream.
Daniel says he could see his mother outside of the coffee shop and ran after her, but then he found himself in his house in Savannah, and it was empty. No Lucy, no Heather, it was really lonely.
Lily says she had the same thing happen when her dad died, and says she’d wake up and think he was still alive. She says that she saw someone who she thought was him.
Daniel says he saw someone at the memorial that really reminded him of Phyllis. He says it gave him hope for a minute until he came back to reality.
Lily reassures him and tells him that he’ll be reminded of his mom all the time.
Daniel says he’s happy she’s with him, she really gets it. He says if she wants to pretend that what happened between them didn’t happen, he’d understand.
Billy pours a drink for Kyle and himself. He says they need it after a hard day, and they clink glasses in a toast.
Billy says that he’s been busy as hell lately, and Kyle agrees.
Kyle says he’s been going through a lot with his mother being in jail.
Billy says that it’s good that he’s supporting her, but he can’t neglect his own life in the process.
He says that he can’t lose Summer, he’s got to fix that right away.
The Abbott Mansion
Jack says it’s not a good day to dump on Diane, she was wrongly accused.
Ashley says she was wrongly accused once too… Because of Diane.
Jack says Diane is innocent and suffering, and she doesn’t want to see Jack because she was denied bail.
He gets angry and says that Diane was framed.
Ashley says that Diane got exactly what she came back for… Kyle and Jack’s ring on her finger.
The Neil Winters Jazz Lounge
Tucker says he has no reservations about selling the company. He’s done with the town and done with McCall Unlimited.
Victor scoffs and asks if he’s expecting his sympathy.
Victor says the company will continue to thrive, but he may change the name.
Tucker says he doesn’t care, he just wants to sell it.
Victor asks him to sign it.
Tucker says he wants to look it over one more time before he signs.
Kyle says that Summer is sleeping in a guest room.
Billy says that’s not a good sign.
Kyle says that Summer told him that she didn’t want to keep him awake. He says he has to clear his mother’s name to get Summer back.
Billy says Kyle’s dead wrong.
Kyle wonders why he even started this conversation.
Billy says that there’s a better way to help Summer.
The Abbott Mansion
Jack says that Diane isn’t capable of committing what she is accused of.
Ashley says she thinks she’s completely capable.
Jack yells and says that he didn’t choose Diane over Phyllis and that he’s mourning Phyllis right now.
He says that Diane never stole Nikki’s necklace, and he believes that Diane is in jail because of what Jeremy Stark did.
Ashley scoffs at that.
Jack says he believes that Diane has changed and is incapable of murder, and he’ll defend the woman he loves and intends to marry.
Ashley tells him that he’s reckless and is willing to tie the Abbot clan to a woman who will drag everyone down with her.
Lily says they’re still in bed, so he can’t pretend it didn’t happen. She says they have a history together and they don’t have to make it more than what it was.
Daniel says that when he looks at her, the loneliness in his dream feels far away.
Lily says that grief transforms a person, and there will be times when it feels like it just happened, but he needs to take care of himself.
Daniel says that’s what he’s trying to do.
Kyle says that Summer doesn’t want to be around him, so pushing her won’t work.
Billy says he needs to push, or they’ll just get further from one another.
He says he has to talk to Summer and let her know how much he loves her. He says Kyle has to not talk about Diane or Phyllis, and to let her know that he’s there for her.
The Neil Winters Jazz Lounge
Audra comes up to Tucker sitting at the bar.
She asks if he’s drinking alone.
He says he’s drinking with all his friends.
Audra laughs and asks what he’s drinking and thinking about.
Tucker says he was thinking about the difference between being alone and being lonely.
He says he was alone in the ashram for months but he never felt as alone as he does now.
Audra says she’s sorry things didn’t work out for him and Ashley.
Tucker says he never felt lonely when he was young and starting out.
Audra says of course a young Tucker McCall was never alone then.

Billy picks up some takeout and sees Lily and Daniel in the restaurant.
He asks how Daniel’s holding up.
Daniel says he’s alright.
Billy says that the media frenzy around Leanna’s article is going crazy right now.
Lily says that she’ll get the lawyers to handle things and keep Daniel out of it.
Daniel says she’s hard to say no to.
Billy says he’s familiar with that. He excuses himself.
Tucker’s Suite at the GCAC
Audra follows Tucker into his room. She spies the contract for McCall’s sale to Victor.
She takes a quick look at the contract and says that it looks like it could be rewarding to Tucker.
Tucker says the big news is that he stole Victor’s pen.
Audra laughs and Tucker has a seat.
Audra says the contract is his ticket out.
Tucker says that whatever happens next isn’t going to be in Genoa City.
Audra says it sounds like he’s really planning to leave town.

Billy sits down with Chelsea and shows her the bag of takeout from Society. He says he has all her favorites.
Chelsea asks if they’re going to eat again… Twice on the same day!
Billy says they are, and he’s feeling lucky.
Chelsea asks what he’s talking about.
Billy says that he ran into Lily and Daniel at Society.
He mentions that Chelsea had the right idea to give Daniel some space and that he felt something romantic between Daniel and Lily.
Chelsea asks how he feels about that.
The Abbott Mansion
Ashley says Jack wants to marry a murderer.
Jack gets angrier at Ashley and says that Diane isn’t a murderer.
Ashley says that his family and the business will take a big hit when everyone finds out he’s defending her.
She reminds him that Diane faked her death and had innocent people take the rap for it.
Kyle comes in and says he could hear them arguing from outside.
Kyle goes upstairs and Jack tells Ashley that if she can’t keep her rage for Diane in check, she should move the hell out.
Audra says that Tucker’s moving awfully fast.
Tucker asks if that’s a yes.
Audra says she’s a high-ranking exec at Newman Media, and she’s not going to leave her job and town to be with him.
Tucker says he should have known that she has something better, just like Ashley and Devon. He says she’s going for the greener pastures, which don’t include him.
Audra says that his problem is that he craves to be the center of people’s lives, and he gets bitter when he isn’t.
She says Ashley’s right… He hasn’t changed.
Tucker says he’s sorry he asked her to his room and says she should leave.
Audra gets up and stands in the doorway. She tells him not to wallow in his misery as she leaves.
Daniel asks Lily if running into Billy was awkward.
Lily says it was, but they broke up months ago, and she’s entitled to her own personal life.
Daniel says she was avoiding eye contact with Billy.
Lily says the timing wasn’t ideal.
Daniel says she listened to him and his problems with Heather and Lucy, and he wants to repay the favor by listening to whatever she wants to say about Billy.
Lily asks how long they’ve known each other and how often she’s complained about a failed relationship.
Daniel says he can’t think of a time.
Lily says that’s because she doesn’t like looking back, and says that being a cancer survivor showed her that she shouldn’t worry about past relationships, she only wants to look forward.
Daniel asks if she can do him a favor. He asks if she can wallow just a bit for him.
Billy says he’s relieved that Lily is moving on with Daniel, that he’s giving her what he couldn’t.
Chelsea says he’s so grown up, and says she went through some rough patches in her life too.
Billy says she had a stroke, so he can’t fault her.
Chelsea says that Billy makes her happy.
Billy says she makes him happy too, and he leans over and kisses her.
Chelsea says Connor is spending the night at the ranch, and she can’t believe she just said that out loud.
Billy laughs and says she can take it back if she wants.
Chelsea says she’s having strong feelings and doesn’t want to take it back.
They kiss again, smiling.
Lily says she doesn’t think about Billy, they had a moment, but she’s here with Daniel now, in the present.
Daniel asks if she has regrets about what happened between them.
Lily says that what happened between them was nice and organic. She says that if she’s meant to be friends with Billy, then they will be, otherwise… They won’t.
Daniel says that she’s very Zen.
Lily says she’s going to surprise him.
Billy and Chelsea are in her apartment kissing.
Billy says he forgot the food downstairs, maybe he should go get it.
Chelsea says he wouldn’t dare to leave.
Billy asks if she’s sure she wants to do this, and she says she wants nothing more.
They fall onto the bed and Billy begins kissing her neck.
Tucker takes a long drink from his glass. He looks over at the desk and gets up.
He walks over to the desk, picks up Victor’s pen, and signs the contract.
The Abbott Mansion
Kyle goes up to a guest room and knocks on the door, calling for Summer.
He says she doesn’t need to open the door or say anything, he knows she can hear him.
He talks through the door and says he loves her and that he’s not going anywhere, and will keep trying until something works.
He says his latest idea is to be together with her and not talk. He promises that he just wants to hold her. If she opens the door, they don’t have to say a word.
He begs her to open the door.
Ashley says she’s sick and tired of Jack trying to kick her out of her own home. She says he’s been trying to get her to leave ever since Diane came into his life.
Jack says that the minute Diane is released, she’s coming back to the house.
Ashley says the house is her birthright just as much as it is his.
She says Jack should move out and find a house next to whatever prison Diane is going to be spending her life in.
She says that Diane will end up costing him everything that’s ever meant anything to him.
