In Paris, Genevieve meets with a man about Beauty of Nature. Victor interrupts and tells Gen the solution she's looking for may be closer to home. She pretends to be there on business, but Victor confronts her about crashing the wedding. She says it was a mistake. They spar about the company. He leans across to remind her that Beauty of Nature was already a success thanks to him. They reach an impasse and Victor moves to leave, but she invites him to schmooze her. He says she's part of the vision he has for Beauty of Nature - she can be his right hand. Genevieve says he's offering the moon, but she likes the stars too. Victor can do that.

Phyllis visits Jack in the hospital. He grumbles, but is cheered by a card from Summer and Lucy. He asks about Nick. Phyllis says it's complicated. Jack tells her he has grounds to challenge the sale of Beauty of Nature since Genevieve looked at his bid, and wants Avery to take the case. Phyllis says she's out of town because their father had a heart attack. Jack questions Phyllis about not going to see him. He suggests she'll regret it if he dies.

Nick and Faith meet Sharon to visit in the small airport. She tells Nick that Adam's not doing very well, mentioning that he's been concerned about keeping her from Faith. Nick is skeptical. Sharon reminds him that Adam saved their daughter's life and was blinded trying to stop Patty. Sharon says she was planning to return to Genoa City, but doesn't want to leave Adam alone. Nick says if she wants to stay, he'll bring Faith to visit again.

At a cemetery near the farm, Adam kneels by his mother's grave. He talks about how she tried to keep him from his father's influence but it didn't work. Adam says it was always her that protected him, not the farm. A man, Tom, approaches and says Hope was a wonderful woman. He helps Adam out of the cemetery.

Vikki arrives at home and asks Billy how it went with Anita. He says he hinted at them quietly fading into the background when the baby is born. Vikki is uncomfortable. Billy reminds her Anita would have no qualms about ruining her grandson's life if she doesn't get what she came for. Anita and Chelsea enter. Nikki follows and invites Anita to join her at Gloworm. When Anita goes to get her purse, Nikki whispers to Billy and Vikki that Anita is hiding something. Once the mothers are gone, Chelsea tells Vikki and Billy that Anita doesn't speak for her.

Hope appears to Adam in the farm's kitchen. She says he used to sit in that same spot after school and talk to her. Adam says she understood him. Hope says she's as much a part of him as Victor is, and he can survive what's happened to him because of her spirit and strength. Adam cries. She tells him he's capable of happiness, honesty and integrity. Hope wants him to be self-reliant, but not alienated. Adam says he won't call Sharon back there. Hope says he won't have to. She disappears, and Sharon arrives. Adam cries, says he needs her, and apologizes. He says he wants to live again, but he can't do it without her. Sharon says she's there.

At Gloworm, Nikki tells Anita she found her earring at the ranch. Anita denies it's hers, but Nikki finds the match in her purse. She grills Anita, who lies that she wanted to assure Victor that Chelsea wouldn't be making trouble for his daughter. Nikki dismisses her. Victor calls, and Nikki angrily confronts him about Anita being at the house. He says they'll talk when he gets home.

Vikki and Billy visit Jack in his room. He asks questions about Chelsea and Anita. They speculate on Victor's involvement. They leave and Nikki arrives. She tells Jack she's upset with Victor. He asks if it has anything to do with Chelsea and her mother.

 image

At Gloworm, Billy and Vikki continue to discuss their situation. Vikki says it would be ironic if the thing that sets Chelsea free from her mother is becoming a mother.

 image

Alone in the living room, Chelsea talks to the baby, saying Anita is stressing them both out. She promises the child he won't have to grow up like she did - his daddy will make sure of it. Anita comes in and tells her about the earring. Chelsea panics.

 image

Still in Paris, Victor tells Genevieve they should celebrate their arrangement. She says they don't have one. He says they will by the time they finish their bottle of champagne.

 image

Phyllis meets Nick at Crimson Lights. He fills her in on Sharon's visit with Faith. Phyllis questions Sharon's choice to stay. Nick says Adam has no one. Phyllis can't believe he's feeling bad for him. Phyllis doesn't - she says the blind little spider has Sharon in his web.
