At the ranch, Victor is calling around and blackening Philippe's name with art dealers while waiting for Sabrina to get home. Michael comes in and breaks the news that Nikki and David's limo has crashed. He offers to go and check it out first but Victor is insistent on going along. He calls Sabrina to tell her that he is going to check on Nikki.

At the scene of the accident, Victor and Michael crawl down and are told that the driver is dead and a woman has been rushed off. Victor looks inside the car. "I told you not to get involved with this man," he says as he flashes back to through his past with Nikki. He notices a piece of jewelry and picks it up. Horrified, he walks over to David and asks if Sabrina was in the car with him. He nods and gasps. Michael rushes Victor to the hospital.

Paul rushes Nikki to the hospital. She begins convulsing. Paul and JT are pushed out so the doctors can treat her. After she is stabilized, Paul is allowed to see her. She wakes up confused. He explains that she was drugged by David.

Phyllis stops Daniel before he can leave the gala. She wants to talk about Amber. "You can't stay out of my business can you?" he shakes angrily. He can't tell her enough times to stay out of his life. He storms off. Nick and Victoria rush out saying that Nikki has just been taken to the hospital.

They rush over to the hospital and meet JT. He tells them what's happened and takes Victoria inside to see her mother. Nick follows but Phyllis stays behind to call Daniel. Nikki tells her children that she can't believe what's happened with David. They thank Paul. He explains David's sordid dealings to them. Paul gets a call: David's dead, he announces. Nikki asks to be left alone, but she tells Paul to stay. She doesn't know why she feels like crying over the man who tried to kill her. "What would I do without you?" she says. "That's what friends are for," Paul says before explaining that Sabrina was in the car with David.

Nick, Victoria and Phyllis sit around the waiting room. Nick explains the David mess. JT comes out and announces that Sabrina was in the car with David. Victoria feels horrible; she was trying to apologize and now may never have the chance. "I have to see her," she says. JT sits her down and tells her that he wants to see her mend their relationship, but now isn't the time.

Victor sits at Sabrina's side. He announces that he will be taking her home. He asks her why she didn't wait for the car and promises to make her better. She's unconscious. He pulls back the sheet and stares at her belly. Michael brings the doctor in. He tells them that she is in no condition to be moved. Victor asks about the baby. "I'm very sorry," the doctor says.

In the hall, Victor orders the doctor to prepare his wife's release; he wants her to recover at home. The doctor explains that her blood is toxic, her liver was lacerated and her other organs are failing. She doesn't have much time. Victor refuses to accept that. He returns to Sabrina's side and tells Michael to fly in specialists. Michael doubts it will help. Victor talks about trying for another baby and ordering a dialysis machine even if it won't do any good. Victoria and JT walk in. "How is she?" Victoria asks. Victor tells them to leave. Victoria cries and apologizes. "It's too late for that," Victor mutters. She walks out and cries. JT cradles her as Michael walks by. He asks about Nikki and then tells them that Sabrina won't make it.

Michael orders the doctor to get the dialysis machine. Victor needs that, even if it doesn't make sense.

Nick tells Phyllis that she can go home. He worries about his father and what he must be going through. She tells him to go and see his father. "I can't. He crossed the line. It's Adam's place now to be there for him," he says, confident that he's the last person Victor wants to see.

Nick tells his sister he's sorry about Sabrina and for the way Victor went off on her. She feels terrible; she's sure that Sabrina is dying and she never had the chance to say she was sorry. Nick reminds her that their father has practically disowned them and refuses to let them near. She tells him he still has to try to see their father.

 image

Paul tells Nikki that Sabrina is in the ICU and David is in the morgue. He offers to call the funeral home. She tells him that she feels nauseated. He leaves to get her something and she sneaks out of her room, dragging her IV along.

Sabrina opens her eyes. Victor explains that she was in an accident. She cries as she asks about the baby. He kisses her forehead and promises her they can have lots of babies. "I'm dying aren't I?" she asks. He tells her not to talk about it. She wants the truth. He promises that he won't let anything happen to her. Nikki has been watching from the door. She quietly moves away.

Daniel goes to see Amber at the apartment. She's packing. His phone rings: It's Phyllis. He doesn't answer. Amber tells him she is moving back to LA so she doesn't have to watch him with other women. He tells her there might be a problem with that: He's moving to LA too. He wants to talk. She thinks he only listens to his mom. He says that Phyllis can't win unless they let her. Phyllis calls again and he answers. She tells him that Nikki is in the hospital. "I'll talk to you tomorrow," he says, hanging up. He tells Amber that he's told his mother off; no one deserves to be treated the way she was by Phyllis. Amber claims that she's every mother's worst nightmare. He tells her that doesn't matter - "we matter". He helps her unpack. She asks him what they're doing. "I'm here," he says. Time without her sucks. They begin to kiss and undress. Phyllis comes knocking at the door. She threatens to let herself in. They ignore her and he carries Amber into the bedroom.
