Abby approaches Jack at the Club looking for Daniel. Ashley and Neil come in. They all discuss Lily. Neil says her good days are starting to outnumber the bad. Daniel appears just as Billy and Vikki enter with Lucy. Billy takes Daniel aside to ask him about Daisy and her baby, but suddenly Jack's glass smashes to the floor. Everyone gathers around as he hangs up his phone. Jack whispers that Sharon was in an accident and she's dead. Ash comforts Jack, who feels he let Sharon down.
At the ranch, Victor and Diane say good morning. Nikki bursts in with Faith and tells him about Sharon. Victor embraces Faith and Nikki. Diane offers to make calls, but Victor says he and Nikki will handle it. Nikki gets a call from Victoria, and asks her to bring everyone she's with to the ranch.
Adam stands in a corridor thinking of the last time he spoke to Sharon. He flashes to the accident, and then an officer takes him to identify the badly burned body. Adam grimaces and says it's Sharon because she's wearing the ring he gave her.
Still at the Club, Vikki asks everyone to come to the ranch. Jack rants about Victor being responsible for Sharon's death, and Billy warns that Noah, Faith, and Summer will be at the ranch - he can't fight Victor now. Everyone goes, and Jack tries calling Phyllis.
Phyllis wakes up next to Nick in the Caribbean and says, "We're bad." Nick comments that sometimes bad is good. After making love again, Phyllis says they need to get back to reality. As they dress, Phyllis gets a call from Jack saying Sharon is dead. Phyllis asks if he's okay. He says he's not, and asks her to tell Nick. She hangs up and breaks the news.
The group from the Club arrives at the ranch. Victor is preparing to go get Noah. Abby and Vikki thank Victor for having them. He replies that Nicholas and the children need them. Neil tells Victor that Sharon knew he cared because he testified for her. Victor thanks him. Billy tells Daniel that Jana is searching for Daisy's baby - he's worried that Daisy might come back to Genoa City. Victor leaves. Soon after, Jack storms in looking to confront him. Nikki says Victor has gone to get Noah. Jack is irate when she defends him. Nearby, Daniel assures Billy that Daisy won't come to town. Billy is relieved. Vikki asks what they're discussing. Billy covers. Ashley tells Neil she blames Adam for Sharon's death. Jack sees a report on Sharon's body being identified in New Mexico. He wonders why Adam went to the Caribbean. Nikki gets a call from Nick and assures him his kids are looked after. Nikki talks to Phyllis and asks her to care for Nick. Abby and Daniel leave. Billy tells everyone that in presenting Sharon's story, he got lost in wanting to bring Adam and Victor down. Jack says Victor and Adam are to blame. Billy states that they all watched it happen - Sharon deserved better.
Adam knocks on Doris's door. She doesn't want to discuss anything with him. He blurts that he identified the body. Doris sobs, "No, not Sharon." Adam says he's very sorry. He tells her about the accident. Doris blames him. Adam says he loved Sharon. Doris counters that he used her. Adam insists he didn't trick Sharon into being with him. He shows her the letter Sharon wrote to him, and the letters to Noah and Faith. Doris calls them suicide notes. Adam disagrees. Doris tells him she's glad Sharon didn't marry him again - he will not help plan the funeral and will not be welcome to attend it.
On the Newman jet, Noah asks Victor to tell him this news about his mother isn't true. Victor wishes he could. Noah talks about wanting to do their last conversation over. Victor notes that people lash out at loved ones who disappoint them, but they still love them. Noah hopes his mom knew how much he loved her. Victor says he should make his mother proud now.
In the Caribbean, Nick is going crazy not being able to talk to Noah, and says he should have been there for Sharon. Phyllis assures him he has every right to feel heartbroken - she was the mother of his children and he loved her. Phyllis holds him.
Sharon walks somewhere in New Mexico. She sits down to eat her sandwich from the diner, but is out of water. She walks to a nearby farm and drinks from the hose. She then takes a horse blanket and beds down in the hay and goes to sleep. She awakens to a man standing over her. He says he won't hurt her.
