As the storm continues in Mexico, Paul and Nikki shelter in the bar, worrying about Victor's boat which didn't come in. The bartender says that perhaps they docked somewhere else. Nick calls Paul's phone and asks for Nikki. She tells him that his father's boat hasn't come in yet. Paul gets back on the phone and Nick informs him that he and J.T. found out that there is a mob hit out on Walter! Paul realizes that this means Victor could be caught in the middle of this - and so could he and Nikki! He gets off the phone, but doesn't let on to Nikki what Nick told him.


At Restless Style, Amber and Chloe have words as Chloe starts ordering Amber around. The phone rings and Daniel takes a call. Amber listens as he makes a lunch date with Colleen. Nick approaches and tells Daniel he has an issue with Noah that he could help with. He explains that Noah appears to be into drinking and that he would like Daniel to scare the hell out of him! Daniel understands that Nick wants him to get his back with Noah and promises to give it a shot! On the phone at the reception desk, Amber pretends to talk to Liam about making a date, laughing loudly to get Daniel's attention. As she's talking, her cellphone rings! Daniel looks away as she stomps out of the room in embarrassment! Noah comes in and Amber pushes past him. "What's wrong with her?" he asks Daniel. Daniel grins, "I wouldn't even know where to begin!"


At Neil's house Devon and Lily prepare for their day, and discuss Ana's situation. Ana comes into the room and Lily tells her she heard about what happened to her - and the exact same thing happened to her. She invites her to sit down and talk. As Lily tells Ana how she felt when she found out about Neil, Ana remarks that she can't forgive Tyra. Lily urges her not to shut out Devon, who also just found out! When Devon comes into the room, Ana asks him if Tyra is sending her to art school because she doesn't want her! Devon reassures her that no one wants to send her away. He tells her that music school is about doing what she loves to do! They discuss how it's weird to suddenly be brother and sister. He says he'll look out for her, and torment her! With that he tickles her until she laughs. They play cards and Ana beats him. They laugh as she says she can torment him too! Tyra comes in and asks if she wants to play with her. Ana says, "Nope. And I don't want to live with you anymore either! I want to live with Devon."


At Jabot, preparations are underway for Lily's photo shoot. Jill is surprised when Cane walks in. She warns him that Lily is on her way, but he assures her he can handle it. Just then, Chloe arrives. Jill asks, "What are you doing here?" Chloe explains that she is overseeing the cross-promotion on behalf of Restless Style! Chloe tells Jill she has been thinking about the engagement party. She notes that Cane clearly doesn't want to do it, so she's okay with that. Jill, however, says it's necessary, like a business obligation. Chloe then tells Jill that her choice of venue is a little stuffy. Jill calls her a little snip and says it doesn't matter what she thinks. Cane goes to his office. Brad wanders in and gives Jill a file. She apologizes to him for not finding time to explain Cane's appointment to him. Brad says it's fine. She asks if he is considering leaving Jabot, but Brad smiles and says that he'll be sticking around for awhile.


Adam and Heather share a meal at the Club. She is busy reassuring him that things will be better when Victor returns. He says he hopes so. When she confides in him about some problems she is having at work, he tells her that her problems don't even begin to compare to his right now! Heather is flabbergasted! "You could at least pretend to care!" She makes a move to leave, but he stops her. She tells him that she isn't interested in sitting there saying, "Poor, poor Adam." She tells him if that's what he's looking for he's got the wrong girl!


Noah arrives at Restless Style and looks at some of Daniel's sketches. He tells him that his showing is going to be in two weeks in Tribeca. Noah crows about how lucky Daniel is, and Daniel counters that Noah should enjoy being a kid right now. When talk turns to the drinking, Noah tells Daniel that he wasn't going to drink the beer - his father was just freaking out because Victor is missing! Daniel warns that one bad decision can easily turn into another. Just then, Nick walks back into the room and Heather arrives. She begins to speak to him, but collapses without warning! Nick hollers at Daniel to call 911!


Amber arrives at the photo shoot at Jabot. She tells Chloe that she has a date with Liam. Chloe puts her down for choosing the GCAC. Chloe then turns to see Lily walk into the room. Cane spots her and she awkwardly says hello. She asks how it is going being CEO of Jabot. He says fine. She says she has something she needs to talk about if he has a second. Cane says of course he does. She launches into telling Cane how her discussion with Ana has brought up old feelings, but they are interrupted by Chloe, however, who is complaining of feeling ill and wants Cane to take her home. He barks at her to go lay down in his office, but she won't give it up. Exasperated, Lily walks away. As Lily gets in front of the camera, Chloe, who is still there, barks orders. Lily spits, "I thought you weren't feeling well!" The photographer can't get what he wants from Lily until Cane sticks his head in - then she gets the look on her face that works. Cane backs out of the room and bumps into Brad, who tells him he'll support him in his new position.


At the bar, Nikki and Paul take a call from Nick telling them what has happened with Heather. Nikki tells Paul she will be fine - he should go be with his daughter. The bartender soon approaches Nikki where she sits at the table and tells her he has news - and it's not good!


Daniel meets Colleen for lunch at the Club. Noah comes with him, but refuses to sit with them and ruin their date. Daniel tells Colleen that he tried to explain to Noah that it's not a real date. She asks why he chose the Club to meet then. He says he chose the Club because Amber wouldn't be there! As Colleen and Daniel chat, she suddenly leaves the table when she spots someone she knows. Noah hustles over and says Colleen didn't seem very happy when Daniel told her about the showing of his work. "I don't think there's anyone better for you than Amber." Just then, Amber herself arrives, announcing that Liam is flying in for a date! Noah asks Daniel if this is going to be weird. Daniel grins and says it is - but not for any of the reasons he thinks! When Colleen comes back to the table, she and Daniel discuss the fact that Amber seems to have made up a boyfriend. Daniel gets up and goes over to where Amber is sitting. He tells her she doesn't have to do this, and she gets up angrily and stomps out. Back at the table, Noah says maybe she isn't making it up - after all, she's hot! Daniel notices that Amber left her phone and goes over and picks it up. He reads a text from Liam apologizing for having to 'flake' and saying he is dying to see her! Daniel says, "You've got to be kidding me?!"

Adam is still sitting at the table in the GCAC when he takes a call from Nick. "Adam? It's Nick. Your girlfriend just collapsed. She's in emergency." Without a word, Adam claps the phone closed and starts jamming papers into his briefcase frantically!


At the hospital, Adam is by Heather's side apologizing for being a self-centered jerk. They kiss and the doctor comes back in. She announces that Heather has an abnormally low white blood cell count. Adam asks what that means, but the doctor just says they need to do more tests and that Heather should be admitted.

After the photo shoot, Jill gives Chloe and Cane a list of invitees for the engagement party. Chloe tells Cane that if he really wants to avoid the party, they should just elope!


Nick is on the plane enroute to Mexico when a call is put through from his mother. She is crying and telling him to get there soon - a piece of the boat that Victor was on has washed up! He's presumed dead!


Next on The Young and the Restless:

A drunken Nikki calls Katherine from Mexico. "Do you know how to say vodka in Spanish?" Katherine frantically asks, "Are you drinking?"

In a car, Nick urges the driver to go faster. "I will double what I gave you!"

Adam says to Neil, "The Board of Directors can go screw themselves! I'm running things!"
