Avery and Heather meet at Crimson Lights and discuss Daisy's disgusting actions. They decide to be friendly foes. Michael joins them, and Daisy hides to listen as they discuss Ricky.

Sharon says she understands Nikki's connection with Victor because she has it with Nick. Nikki says she'll never approve of her and Victor. Sharon says she's always disapproved of her - the last time she was kind was when Cassie died! Sharon asks Nikki to cut her a break. They agree to drop the charges. Nikki warns she'll never approve of her and Victor.

Paul enters the Club, leaving a voicemail for someone to call him back. Nearby, Lauren spots Daisy and tells her she hasn't changed. Daisy is all innocence and big eyes, but her demeanor changes when Lauren says she and Phyllis have proof she heard her cries for help and did nothing. She adds that she'll make sure the world knows she doesn't deserve to be Lucy's mother. Daisy hightails it up to Ricky's suite and tells him she's ready for 'operation destroy the red-headed shrew'. Ricky says Tim told him she did something in 1994 and mentions a rental car. When he brings up her hatred for Christine, Daisy looks thoughtful and leaves. Heather arrives and returns the music box to Ricky saying it plays a creepy song. Downstairs, Nick tells Avery that Daisy must be held accountable.
