At home, Avery dreams that she finds Nick setting up for a romantic evening at The Underground. He tells her it's not for her, it's for Sharon, who is the love of his life. "I never got over her." Dylan appears and says, "The same way you never got over me." Dylan tells her it's time to let go and take the next step. She wakes up.

Sharon wakes up on her sofa and Nick asks if she's okay. She's embarrassed about her meltdown earlier. He says it's fine. She says there's more he doesn't know. Sharon admits to manipulating so that they could spend more time together, and that them reuniting wasn't just Faith's dream. Nick says they can't recreate the past, no matter how magical it seemed. He's not happy about what she did, but he won't hold her illness against her. Nick urges her to keep taking her pills now that she's had one. Sharon says she'll have to find a way to be happy without him. He prompts her to call her doctor. Sharon promises she can do this. He leaves, saying he'll return if she needs anything. Sharon leaves the doctor a message. Cassie appears. "Well-played, Mom." She says she can use Nick's worry to her advantage. Sharon says she wasn't manipulating him. Cassie isn't buying it. Sharon wants Cassie to stop twisting her motives. Cassie wonders if Sharon is telling the truth, why she's still there.

At the penthouse, Chelsea asks Adam what's going on with him. He says the guilt is killing him. "Poor defenseless child." Chelsea tells him it's not his fault Connor will go blind. He dismally reminds her they have to hope for a baby or kid to die for a cornea donation. Chelsea gives Connor to Adam. "Your daddy needs you." She says they have a lot to feel thankful for - the only person that should be feel guilty is the monster who hit Delia. She talks about whether the person will come forward and goes on about him being locked up. When Chelsea says Adam needs to focus on being there for Connor, Adam says she's right. He asks for the phone. After, he packs up an envelope of cash. Chelsea's nervous that he's being scammed. Adam says he went through the right connections. She says it should be a last resort. Adam feels it may be their only resort. He leaves. Chelsea tells Connor this time his dad is right - the rules need to be broken.

Billy watches the video of Delia at home. Victoria appears with Johnny. Billy asks her to take him upstairs. When Victoria returns, he's still watching the video. Jack calls, but Billy won't take the phone and doesn't want him to come over. Victoria wants to talk and tries to turn off the video, but Billy angrily warns, "Don't touch that." Victoria wants to turn it off before they see Delia crumple to the ground in the play - she doesn't think either of them want to see that. Billy turns it off. He rants about the entire house having Delia in it and how he blames himself. Victoria begs him not to go, but he leaves. Victoria puts Delia's backpack in the closet and pops the party balloons as she cries.

At Crimson Lights, Dylan thinks about Avery. Stitch comes in from the hospital and tells Dylan that his buddy Billy's little girl died tonight. Dylan asks how it happened. Stitch says it was a hit-and-run; some bastard without a soul. Dylan talks about Chelsea being Chloe's best friend and considers calling, but he doesn't want to give her the wrong idea. Stitch says tonight was a reminder that life's short. He urges Dylan to go after Avery.

Avery enters The Underground and recalls when Nick proposed to her there. Noah appears. She asks if Nick is there. Noah says no, but she can wait. They discuss the canceled wedding. She muses that Noah must hate her. Later, Noah says it looks like Nick isn't coming in. Avery is leaving when Nick appears. They sit in her booth to talk. He thanks her for encouraging him to open the club. Avery hates how she hurt him. She returns his ring and hopes he finds someone worthy to wear it. She wants great things for him. After, Nick takes down the plaque from Avery's booth and hands it to Noah.

Adam meets a thug in the park and warns him if he scams him, he'll personally track him down and cut out his eyes. He hands over the money and then takes a deep breath. Adam turns around and Billy appears.

Avery greets Dylan at Crimson Lights. She tells him she couldn't sleep. He asks, "And you came here?"
