Billy arrives at Crimson Lights to meet Jack, who wants some changes to Jabot's 'Ashley' line implemented - Billy says he'll listen. Jack warns that he'll do more than listen - he won't blow him off! Billy tells him that Ashley foams at the mouth when his name is mentioned and that he'll do the best he can. Jack admits that Sharon has thrown him out of the house because he's been cheating on her with prostitutes. Billy chokes and stifles a laugh as he digests this information. Billy says he's willing to listen to Jack's thoughts, and Jack goes ballistic, sneering that he was running Jabot before he was even born! Billy tells Jack he's under a lot of stress and that he has a brain of his own - he worked very hard in Hong Kong! They make nice and Billy says Jill wants to see him so he's got to go. John appears and tells Jack that Billy takes after him in many ways - including the ability to walk right over any family member who stands in his way! They discuss the diary, and John says Jack hasn't gained anything out of it, in fact, he's lost his wife and business!

Katherine is at work in the diner, flanked by Pearl and Murphy. A customer comes in and orders herbal tea - it's Lowell! After Lowell leaves, Pearl asks Murphy if that was another one of his strays. Murphy says he was outside hitch-hiking with nothing but the clothes on his back - and said he was heading west. Katherine asks Murphy what is going on and he says Pearl is just worrying for nothing. Katherine then goes over to Pearl, who says Murphy spends money that he doesn't have helping strangers! Katherine thinks about her ring being worth $5000 at the pawnshop. Murphy sits down and Katherine asks him if he needs financial help - is his business going to stay afloat? Murphy says her company makes him feel rich. He then starts discussing a toy drive.

Billy arrives at the Chancellor Mansion to see Jill, who says that she loves him and wants them to make peace. Jill laments that she's not sleeping well, and that Katherine isn't there to decorate the house for Christmas like always. Billy asks about the two of them making up, "So you don't want to beat me, or spank me, or anything?" Jill laughs, telling him that her dream was to have both of her sons working by her side - she asks him to forget about Jabot and come work with her and Cane at Chancellor! He asks if he'd be in a position over Cane, and Jill asks why he is so competitive with his brother? Billy says it's because Cane's her favorite. Jill is taken aback, but Billy feels she always sent him away, implying that she has let him down in the past. Jill warns him that he's not one of the original three at Jabot - he'll get left with nothing. Billy says he'll take his chances, telling her that he loves her, but doesn't want to work for her!

Michael's arrives at the jail, and questions Gloria about confessing when she knew Jeff had put the cream on himself to entrap her! She says she thought it was just another game, and wants Michael to get her out of there. He says she'll have to spend the night and Gloria panics. Kevin takes him aside and warns Michael that if she cracks, they'll all be in trouble! Michael leaves. When it's time for Gloria to return to her cell, she begs Kevin to get Michael to do whatever he has to to get her out of there!

Jack arrives at the Abbott Mansion with John's ghost still in tow. John points out the decorating Sharon's done, but questions whether Jack ever really went out of his way to make Sharon and Noah feel loved. Jack begins reminiscing about Christmases past at their home. John tells him it's not too late to turn everything around in his life. Jack says confessing isn't an option! John tells him he is addicted to lying! Jack claims that everything changed when he was run out of Jabot - he'd do anything to change that! Suddenly, Jeff comes in and Jack asks how he got the burn on his face. Jeff explains innocently that he had dry skin and used some of Gloria's face cream, telling Jack that it turns out she was responsible for the scandal at Jabot all along! Jack is livid!

Michael is now visiting Heather's office, where he demands to know why Victor's still behind bars! He suggests that she recuse herself since she has a conflict of interest the size of Texas! She promises if she feels she can't be objective she'll do just that. Michael leaves, and she returns to agonizing about Adam. She calls the airport and asks about the flight, finding out that she can still make it!

As the last call for the flight echoes through the air, Adam cringes. Just then, Heather appears. He embraces her and says happily, "You made it!" She tells him coolly that she's not there to go with him - she's there to arrest him! She moves aside as the cuffs are slapped on him!
