Ashley arrives at Jabot to help Jack deal with the crisis created by Tucker taking over the company. Ashley briefs the staff on how to keep morale up and reassures their associates that Jabot is as strong as ever. A note arrives from Tucker saying there will be changes down the road, but for now it's business as usual. Ashley tells Jack that she may have to borrow Emily from him - Victor put her on notice he's going to fight her for the Ranch! Jack asks about the papers she signed - she admits that Victor had them drawn up, she signed them, but he didn't. Jack calls it 'classic Mustache', and vows to do anything he can to help her stay in the house!

JT is at Tucker's office. He tells his boss he has to leave due to an issue with the sitter. As he leaves, Victor walks in. Tucker muses that he thought Victor was retired. Victor replies that he has a lot of unfinished business to take care of! They compare notes on their past failures. Victor lets him know he's not happy about the takeover - he's a close friend of Katherine Chancellor. Tucker tells Victor he's championing a lost cause. Victor wonders if he's really Kay's son - he doesn't seem like her. Tucker says we'll see about that. Victor offers to buy half his shares in Katherine's company, but Tucker chuckles that he's still basking in the glow of victory.

Nikki talks to Noah about his fight with Eden in Crimson Lights. He remarks that she leaves today. Nikki says that doesn't give him much time to patch things up.

At the Baldwin household, Eden is preparing to leave. She tells Lauren that Noah finally gave up texting her. Lauren thinks it's a misunderstanding and she should just call him. Michael comes in and says Eden's car is there. They exchange tearful goodbyes. Eden tells Michael that he's been more like a real father to her than River ever was. Lauren warns Eden to keep her email box full - or she might fly over there! They embrace. The doorbell rings - it's Daisy with something from the office. She is stunned that Eden is actually going to Paris - she offers to take a picture of them with Daniel's camera. The doorbell rings again - it's Noah. The others leave the room. Noah says he blew it - he wishes she wasn't going - he doesn't know how he's going to get through it! Eden gives him the necklace her mom gave her to keep until she returns - it's the one he saved in Paris. Noah promises to care for it. Eden has to go - she tells Noah she loves him. Noah tells her he loves her more. After Eden has gone, Daisy offers to help Noah take his mind off things, but he leaves in a dismal mood. As Lauren and Michael recall when Eden first showed up on their doorstep, Daisy offers to be a substitute!

Katherine, Jill, Brock, Neil, Malcolm, and Devon are gathered at Cane and Lily's place. Mac arrives, and they tell the group they have an announcement! Lily encourages Mac to go ahead and tell them. Mac smiles, and says she had her first ultrasound, and everything checked out - twice! Everyone realizes they're having twins! There are congratulations all around. Cane asks Jill to consider herself the grandmother - she's tickled. Kay, Jill, and Brock leave.

Still in Lily and Cane's living room, Devon jokes with Lily about having twins. Malcolm steps back and watches them all interacting - he muses that this is the reason he came back to Genoa City - to reconnect with his family. He decides to tell them some news he's been hiding - he's engaged! Lily is thrilled for him, but Neil steps forward and confronts Malcolm about trying to be a part of the family without so much as a discussion about it. Malcolm wants to talk about it then, but Neil leaves in a huff. Lily tells Malcolm that she appreciates him wanting to move back and help with the children, but it may be too much too soon for Neil.

Neil meets with Ashley at Jabot. He expresses his frustrations about Malcolm to her. She muses that Jack drives her crazy too, but he's always the first one beside her during a crisis. She suggests that they need to deal with the issues surrounding Lily's paternity. Jack comes in, and Neil tells him that Ashley just gave him what he needed.

Neil goes to find Malcolm back at Lily's house, and tells him he has been putting up walls since he arrived. Malcolm tells him he'll work his way back into the family however he has to. Neil says it's time they started getting past their issues. He welcomes his brother back and they embrace.

Jack looks up to see Victor come into the office at Jabot. Victor says he's there about Tucker McCall - something needs to be done about him! Victor suggests they put their differences aside and get rid of McCall. Jack agrees - for Katherine's sake. He tells Victor he's got a partner, and holds out his hand. Victor won't shake it, though, and gives a salute before leaving.

JT meets with Mac at Crimson Lights. They discuss their situations briefly. Brock arrives and JT asks Mac to watch Reed for a moment. Brock takes the opportunity to tell Mac that what she's doing is great, but she's going to give birth to two children - is she really ready for that kind of sacrifice? Mac reassures him, just as JT returns with a tea refill. Brock takes off, and Mac offers to help JT with Reed while Victoria's away.

Back at the Chancellor Estate, Katherine tells Nikki that the DNA results will soon be in. She can't believe that Tucker McCall could be her son. They discuss the circumstances under which Kay gave the baby up. She laments that she did nothing for so many years - just put it out of her mind. Nikki tells her it's no excuse for what Tucker did - he could have come to her in a straightforward manner. As they continue to discuss the fight coming up, Jill comes in the front door and listens. She hears Katherine say to Nikki, "If only you'd been my daughter by some miraculous twist of fate." Jill exhales, and leaves again. The doorbell rings - it's the DNA results. Katherine opens the envelope - all three labs confirmed that Tucker is her son. Kay tells Nikki she'll go let him know herself.

 image

Jill arrives at Tucker's office and asks if he's really Katherine's son - or is this just some twisted way for him to get his kicks? Tucker promises that he is really Katherine's son. He points out that he bought his share in the company - he didn't steal it. She thinks he's callous. Tucker asks what Katherine has ever done to inspire such loyalty from her. He tells Jill he appreciates her for the woman she is - they need to stick this out and see what they've got. Jill is drawn in.

 image

Katherine shows up at Tucker's office looking to tell him about the test results. She hears voices in the other room and walks in to see Jill and Tucker in bed together. She tells Tucker that he'll never be her son, and as for Jill, she was never her daughter!

 image

Ashley arrives at home to find Nikki there putting away clothes she bought for Noah. Ashley asks for her key back, but Nikki tells her that will be Victor's decision. Ashley hisses that it's not his decision. They get into an argument. Ashley says it's fine that Nikki has Victor, but this is her daughter's home - that she can't have!

Eden arrives in Paris and greets her aunt. The woman tells Eden she is glad she found her and asked to come for a visit. Eden is stunned, and says she contacted her, not the other way around. Eden wonders if it wasn't her aunt who wrote to her - who was it?
