Quote Hershey123: Honestly, a good day to hit the FF button!
Paul/Kevin/Michael - At station, Kevin thanks Paul for opportunity. Michael barges in wants Paul to arrest Carmine for feeding Fen drugs. Paul needs more evidence. After some back and forth, Paul agrees to open investigation. Kevin is happy for him and Lauren and then does the “poor me” act about him and Chloe.
Fen/Lauren/Carmine - Lauren at Fen’s bedside in hospital, Lauren sees Carmine looking through window and she goes and tells him he’s the reason Fen is there. Carmine doesn’t get it. Lauren tells him he gave Fen the drugs, he denies it to no end, and calls her “baby”, which didn’t go over very well. Carmine and Lauren arguing, he’s denies his involvement, has his hands on Lauren’s arms when Michael gets off the elevator and loses it. Paul holds him back and tells him they are doing this the legal way. Paul whisks Carmine away. Fen wakes up, Michael wants to know if he’s sure it was Carmine, Fen says yes. They talk about drugs, he is obviously setting Carmine up, insisting it was him. Carmine at the station, got himself a lawyer … Leslie.
Victor/Adam - Lunching at AC. They chat about Adam’s love life. Adam leaves and runs into Melanie on the way out, reminds her of her job to do with Victor. Victor wants to know what her and Adam are up to, wants to know any info she has. She blabs on, Victor wants to know how much Adam is paying her to double-cross him. Warns her she will suffer consequences, and she admits to Victor that Adam is on to him. He fires her. Victor leaves, Adam returns and Melanie tells him what happened, Adam smirks and didn’t think Victor knew a thing, he was rather impressed he figured it out. She wants to continue their “private” relationship and go upstairs. Adam tosses her aside, she wants help finding a new job, Adam says she didn’t do her job, and he’s not helping her and leaves.
Neil/Leslie - Neil has a new plan, to ignore the blogger … I have a better plan, lets drop this stupid storyline.
Victoria/Nikki - At ranch, Victoria still hasn’t decided what to do about her marriage. Nikki thinks she should give Billy another chance, from one addict to another. Victor arrives, him and Nikki talk about Billy.
Chloe/Billy/Delia – At CL, Chloe wants to know if Billy’s been to any meetings. She tells him he is always going to have triggers but has to figure out how to deal with them, without relapsing. Chloe says Victoria might not be on his side, but she is. She wants her and Billy to be friends, and tells him Delia needs him, when Delia overhears he might be sick, he says he’s going to go and get well. Billy leaves. In comes Kevin and Delia is all excited. Kevin fills Chloe in on Michael & Lauren, and tells her he got a job at the station. Tells her he took the job for her, she tells him he has to want the job for himself not her.
Victoria/Billy – Victoria goes to restaurant to see Billy. They have idle chit chat, and she asks how the meetings are going, as he’s about to answer (and lie), some gambling connection come into the bar and he’s distracted. Victoria tells him to take care of it, the guy gives Billy his winnings, Victoria sees and makes some comment about Billy being a bluffer. Billy admits he played a few games while she was away. Changed her mind, she’s not giving him another chance. The guy who gave Billy his winnings is lurking in the corner on the phone with, you guessed it, Victor. In comes Melanie for a drink and unburdens on Billy
Next: Chelsea wants to know from Avery if Dylan spoke of the war ... Stitch wants to know how well him and Chelsea know each other ... Nick tells Victor he's not summer's father
Victor may get what he wants this time and Billy will have helped him.He just wants to feel sorry for himself because Victoria is angry and won't forgive his gambling.She's right,he has to show he's willing to help himself before he deserves another chance.The truth will come out at some point and Victor will give his same old excuse, he was protecting Victoria.She and Nikki will make a show of being angry and then forgive him.Wouldn't it be nice to have something different than this same old crap over and over again.
It looks like the Victor/Adam love in is over, who didn't see that coming.They don't trust each other and this partnership won't last. Victor has to be in control and will be looking for a way to get rid of Adam.Melanie was used by both of them and got fired.
