In the Abbott pool house, Gloria tells Michael that a judge might go easier on her if she confesses. Michael tells her there will be no confession - not now, not if she's arrested, not ever. He reminds her that he and Lauren and Kevin might be arrested as well! Gloria tells her son to find her another way out then! Michael tells Gloria that Jeffrey hasn't actually told Jill what she did. Gloria looks at him, "He still loves me! I have to go to him!" As she leaves, Michael shouts, "Gloria?! Remember what I said!"


At the Chancellor Estate, Jill presses Jeffrey to tell her exactly what it is that Gloria did in the past! He waffles, and Jill confronts him about telling her he had feelings for her when he still loves Gloria. She asks yet again to be told the truth about what Gloria did, but Jeff laughs that he just made it up to make her look worse. He thanks Jill for her kindness and offers to buy her dinner later in the week. After he leaves, Esther comes into the room and discovers his jacket - and the torn up 'deathbed confession of love' for Gloria in the pocket! Soon, Gloria turns up at the door and Jill won't let her see him. Behind Jill, Esther tries to gesture to Gloria that Jeffrey wrote her a note! Gloria leaves. Jill disappears and Esther finds Katherine and shows her the love note! Katherine calls Jeffrey downstairs and confronts him. "You love Gloria and are scamming my daughter!" Jeffrey notes that he feels like a smoker who's trying to quit! Katherine informs him that he is obsessed with Gloria. "Now what in the hell are you doing here?!"


At the Ranch, Sabrina shows Victor a brochure of a sculpture garden that she would like to be married in. Adam comes in and they discuss the lawsuit. Adam promises that he will never make the same mistake twice!


In her office at Jabot, Nikki asks David who Paul will say that he killed. David replies, "My first two wives!" Nikki tells David that she didn't know Paul was investigating him, but she knew that Victor had him investigated in the past. David presses her to believe that he is innocent, but Nikki is badly shaken. She asks him to tell her what happened. He says his first wife suffered from depression and committed suicide. He then describes his second wife as an adrenaline junkie who wrapped a Porsche around a light post! He then tells Nikki about Mina, and admits that he gambled all of his second wife's money away. David then moves on to the third wife who became paranoid and delusional. He explains that he left her and started seeing Carmen. Nikki asks why he never told her any of this before?! David apologizes. Nikki then gets a call that the judge is ready to rule, and leaves the office.


Paul and Heather sit down together at the coffee house. He asks if she is seeing Brad. Heather confirms that she is not. They discuss Jabot, and Heather mentions that David is very protective of Nikki. Paul notes, "Watches every move she makes, huh?"


At Restless Style, Sharon and Nick visit with Noah. When Noah goes off to play on a computer, Sharon tells Nick that Victor called and asked if Noah could come to his wedding. Nick says Noah is better off canoeing. Nick tells Sharon that Sabrina asked Vikki to be her Matron of Honor. Sharon is taken aback. She asks Nick if he is in the wedding. Nick says Victor hasn't mentioned it - he's not very dialed-in about what it means to be a father! As Sharon prepares to take Noah off to camp, Nick reminds him that he wants two letters everyday! They embrace. As Noah and Sharon leave, Sabrina comes in. She asks Nick if they could mend things before the wedding. Nick says it isn't going to happen. She presses him to be part of the wedding, but Nick says he assumes Adam is Best Man. "You see, my father didn't even give me a chance to say no!" Sabrina leaves and Sharon returns. She and Nick discuss their son growing up so fast, which naturally leads them to remember when Cassie started wearing make-up. Nick says kids think they're immortal. "But we know better than that."


In the boardroom at Jabot, everyone arrives for the judge's ruling. The judge rules in favor of Newman Enterprises! Adam pumps his fist, Victor looks smug, and Jill looks disgusted! Out in the hall after, Victor tells Adam he dodged a bullet today! Inside the boardroom still, Nikki tells Jill they will appeal, but a furious Jill says they won't be spending another minute or another dime on this lawsuit! Heather stalks out and runs into David, telling him, "We've lost."


Back in the pool house, Gloria calls someone and asks them to come over. "I could use a friend." Soon, Alistair arrives. Gloria laments that she still loves Jeffrey, but he doesn't want to see her again. As Alistair comforts her, Jeffrey looks at them through the door and gets the wrong idea!

Paul arrives at Nikki's office. She asks him if someone hired him to investigate David. Paul confirms that no one asked him to, but there is plenty to worry about. She asks Paul, "As my friend, please, stop investigating my husband!" Paul leaves the office and David goes in. Nikki tells him that there will be no appeal on the lawsuit - Jill's orders. He suggests that she go over Jill's head to Katherine, but Nikki doesn't want to. As they get on the elevator to head home, Paul watches from the shadows, consumed with worry!

Back at the Ranch, Victor fills Sabrina in on the outcome of the lawsuit. She is happy that now he will be able to ease up on Adam. Victor assures her that Adam will be fine - he is his son and is made of tough stuff!


As Heather leaves Jabot, Adam appears outside the elevator and they formally discuss the lawsuit ruling. Once inside the elevator they passionately kiss!

When Jill gets home, Katherine confronts her about Jeffrey. Jill stops her, however, and tells her mother she has heard it all before. She tells Kay not to worry, she's just playing with Jeffrey!
