At Boulevard, Carmine looks at the video of him and Lauren in bed...on Genoa City Buzz. Chloe enters and sees Billy with his bookie. She confronts him about not going to a meeting last night. He protests. She wonders if he'll deny they kissed too. Billy lets her know the guy wasn't a bookie but his sponsor. Chloe wants to discuss the kiss. Her lips got carried away. Billy shrugs that he's irresistible. Chloe assures him it won't happen again. Billy talks about winning Victoria back. Chloe doesn't think he'll be able to get Newman back for her.

At home, Michael and Lauren argue with Fen about him seeing a therapist. He wants Carmine arrested. His phone dings. Fen flips out and shows his parents. Lauren gasps and stammers. Fen tells her not to bother talking. Michael vows Carmine will pay. He can't believe they made a sex reel. Lauren had no idea about it. She apologizes. Suddenly, Lauren realizes Carmine didn't just send it to Fen - he posted in online. She goes ballistic.

At Crimson Lights, Adam and Phyllis taunt each other about being invited to the charity gala for MS. Adam says maybe Nicholas will have a go at him publicly. Phyllis doubts he'll go. Adam wonders what could keep him away. Phyllis won't discuss it. He muses that he could always ask Blabby Abby or Summer. Phyllis warns him away from Summer and eventually blurts that Summer's not Nick's daughter, she's Jack. Adam digests the news that Nick was behind it. Phyllis says Nick will always be a better man than him.

At the tackhouse, Victoria reels from Nick's news about Summer not being his daughter. She says she's sorry and they embrace. Vikki talks to Nick about Billy's gambling putting her and Johnny in danger. Nick offers to knock some sense into him. Vikki tells him to focus on Summer, but admits she's scared she'll never trust Billy again. Nick worries about losing Avery. Vikki knows Nick believed Summer was his; she knows what's in his heart. Nick says she also knows what's in Billy's heart. Vikki feels that doesn't erase what he's done. She reassures Nick that Avery will forgive him and Nick advises her to consider everything before deciding about her marriage.

Phyllis arrives at Michael and Lauren's. Lauren is about to leave. Michael tells Phyllis that Lauren needs a friend and goes. Lauren blows out but Phyllis brings her back. Lauren tells her about Fen overdosing and the sex video. She says she wants that bastard dead. Later, Lauren tells Fen she's going out. Fen says she's a real hit with his friends and leaves. Lauren paces.

At home, Victor looks at a headline about the fundraiser gala and calls someone to come to the ranch. Adam soon arrives. They banter back and forth. Melanie comes up. They argue over who used her. Adam says it must be rough having a son he can't trust. "Have you spoken to Nicholas lately?" Victor asks him to keep Summer's paternity to himself. Adam muses that Nick screwed over Jack in a way even Victor couldn't. "That is epic." Victor says Nick made an error in judgement and warns Adam about reveling in it. He doesn't think Adam knows what it means to be in this family. They argue heatedly. Victor hollers that Summer is a Newman. Adam complains that he has his blood but constantly has to prove himself worthy. Victor has tried with Adam, who fights him all the way. Adam suggests a clean slate with complete trust. Outside, Adam phones someone to proceed with the matter they discussed. Inside, Victor phones someone to keep an eye on things. "Something is going on."

Michael meets the GC Buzz guy at Boulevard and asks him to take Carmine's video down. The guy refuses. Michael reminds him he used to be the D.A. The guy won't budge without an injunction. Carmine sidles over. "See any good videos lately?" Chloe notices the tension and suggests Billy intervene. He does and Michael leaves. Billy credits Chloe for helping him recently and she goes. Billy asks Carmine to take out the trash. Outside, Michael aims a gun at him.

Phyllis arrives at the tackhouse. Nick says he was filling Victoria in. Phyllis wonders if she found a way to blame her. Victoria puts her arms around Phyllis, who is stunned that she's sympathetic. Vikki goes. Phyllis tells Nick she went to see Michael. They have legal issues to address. Nick worries Summer will want to change her name. Phyllis assures him she loves him to infinity.

Victoria meets Chloe at her work. Chloe says it's about Billy.
