Billy is with Delia in the coffee house when Chloe and Chance come in. She says they can take it from there, but Billy asks for some alone time with her - he has some things he needs to say! Chloe tells Chance, who offers to take the baby home. Chloe sits down with Billy, remarking, "Is he great or what?" Billy agrees that he's a peach. Chloe gets a text about wedding planning stuff, which prompts Billy to mention that he's pictured Delia's wedding. He tells Chloe that he figured some things out on New Year's Eve, and he has been trying to make amends, but he owes her the biggest apology of all! He admits that Chance was likely right that night in the cabin when he accused him of using her. He says all she ever did was love him, and he made her pay for it. Billy marvels that she saw something in him beyond just a spoiled jerk. Billy tells her that when they were together after Delia was born, he had some of the best times of his life. Chloe thanks him, and they discuss how great Delia is. Billy remarks that he's lost a lot, and he doesn't want to lose his little girl. Chloe assures him that they've all seen a difference in him. Chloe is about to leave, when Billy says he has a request - he wants her to come back to work at Restless Style.

At the Ranch, Sharon is heading out as she has to meet Adam later. Noah says goodbye and sits down to read an email from Eden. She explains the misunderstanding between her and her aunt as to who contacted whom. She asks Noah not to tell Michael and Lauren though - they'll only make her come home. Noah puzzles over who would want Eden to go away.

Adam meets with Victor at Newman to give him his letter of resignation. Victor remarks that he could have emailed it. Adam says he was foolish to think he could get on Victor's good side - he doesn't have one! Adam leaves, and Sharon soon turns up. Victor tells her that Adam quit after he told him he couldn't use Newman as a playground to fight with his brother. Sharon is sorry, and realizes that Victor is angry right now, but she asks if he could find a way to have some kind of personal relationship with Adam. Victor says he's family - he'll always forgive him - he just hopes he doesn't take advantage of it.

Tucker is on the phone in his office when he receives a visitor - it's Adam. He introduces himself as Victor's son and says he thinks they should talk! They bond over finding their parent later in life, and not being wanted by said parent right from the beginning. Adam tells Tucker he wants to work for him. Tucker admits he's suspicious. Adam anticipated that, and gives him inside information from Newman Enterprises to prove where his loyalties lay! Tucker welcomes him to McCall Unlimited!

As Chloe and Billy are discussing the magazine, and what she brings to the operation, Adam strolls into the coffee shop. He tells Billy that he's heard that he's considering doing an expose on him - an idea he would be wise to drop! Billy tells Chloe to ignore him. Chance arrives back to pick-up Chloe as Billy says, "See you tomorrow!" Chloe explains to Chance that she is going back to Restless Style. Chance isn't thrilled, but she says Billy is trying to change. Chance continues to argue against it, and Chloe says this isn't about work - it's about her making up with Billy! Chance denies it - he just doesn't think Billy appreciates her talents. Chloe insists that she's seen a change in Billy. Chance hopes she's right, and finally offers his support. They kiss.

Sharon arrives back at the Ranch to find Noah asking to go to school with Eden in Paris! She isn't keen on the idea, but he remarks that he's tired of the drama around there - he wants to get away. They sit down and discuss his feelings about all the things that have gone on in recent months that have made it difficult for him at school - and how Eden helped his through it all. Sharon listens and eventually agrees to let him go. Noah heads out, full of excitement, as Adam is coming in. He and Sharon discuss him leaving Newman. Adam tells her that he went to see Tucker McCall. Sharon points out that he's the man who stole Katherine's business. Adam tells his wife that he's Tucker's newest employee! Sharon is skeptical - Katherine has a lot of friends in Genoa City. Adam claims it's all business. Sharon points out that this will drive Victor crazy - is that what his excitement is about. Adam isn't concerned about Victor, telling Sharon that he can't hurt him anymore.

Tucker arrives at the Club, where he encounters Victor. He mentions that he heard Newman is interested in acquiring a company called Castle. Victor wants to know how he heard that - Tucker says, "Through the grapevine." He then thanks Victor for making it possible for him to hire his new star employee - his son Adam! He muses that he hopes Adam turns out to be a chip off the old block! Tucker sits down alone at the bar and muses that he doesn't trust any of the Newmans!

Daisy and Lauren come into the house where Lauren remarks that she still has the nagging headache. She says she misses having a teenager around - she really got used to Eden. Daisy says she's had trouble making friends in the dorm. Lauren thinks she might have an idea that will make both of them feel better - she invites her to stay for a couple of months until she graduates. She offers Daisy the room that Eden was using. Daisy wonders if she wants to ask Michael first, but Lauren says he'll be fine with it. Daisy goes to get her things, and Lauren tries to call Michael, but gets his voicemail and freaks out! She then holds her head and whispers, what's wrong with me? As she pours a drink of whiskey, Daisy returns and remarks, "I didn't think you drank?" Lauren looks at the glass and says, "I don't!" Daisy goes to put her things away, and comes back out saying there are still some things of Eden's in the desk. Lauren tells her that she'll clean them out, and Daisy offers to go to the store.

Noah is on the phone with Eden at Crimson Lights. He tells her he's stoked about maybe coming to Paris - depending on what his father says. Noah tells her he's going to do some detective work on who sent her to Paris. Daisy comes in and tells Noah she's taking Eden's room while she's away. Noah looks very interested.

Still at home, Lauren has cleaned out Eden's desk, and finds clippings about Sheila, and a receipt for a rat from the pet store! Lauren gasps!

Billy gets to Restless Style and is on a phone call when Victor gets off the elevator and strolls in. Billy grits his teeth and hangs up. Billy wonders if he's here to take him out - or to warn him. Victor says neither - he's there because Billy has a magazine and he has a story. Billy muses that it would be like a deal with the devil. Victor asks, "You interested?" Victor tells Billy that he'll grant him a one-time exclusive interview where he can ask him anything he wants - provided he asks him about his son Adam and what a poor excuse for a human being he turned out to be! Billy gapes, saying, "I take it you and Junior are getting along just fine!" Billy remarks that he was doing an expose on Adam anyway, but he only had speculation, which won't sell magazines. Victor promises Billy can quote him verbatim! Billy beams! Victor smiles back!
