Phyllis' trial continues, Summer returns, and Jack makes moves.
At Crimson Lights, Nick answers Fen's phone - it's Summer. She agrees to come home. Nick tells Victoria and Billy he's not looking forward to Phyllis' future going up in flames today. Victor tells them Tucker was released today - it's more important than ever to have a strong defense against Jack taking over. He says Adam isn't siding with them.
Jack is surprised to see Tucker turn up at his house saying he's out on bail. Tucker says the charges were dropped - he's confident Sharon will recant her story. Tucker wants to talk about Newman - he says everything Victor worked for could be Jack's, he just needs his help. Later, Billy arrives and Tucker goes. Jack tells Billy he and Tucker have come to an understanding - he's about to make a move on Newman Enterprises and will need his help. Billy says Victor must know and that's why he's pissed about Adam not siding with the family. Billy tells Jack it's his wife's family and to leave him out of it.
Sharon hears someone in the house and panics, but it's just Noah. He has a bag and says he's staying in Genoa City, but not with her - he's moving in with Nick. She asks why he won't stay. He replies that it's hard to look at her right now after what she pulled. Sharon tries to explain. Noah doesn't think she's sorry about the terrible things she's done. He leaves. Tucker arrives looking for her to recant her accusations. She makes the call. He thanks her and warns her if things get worse for the Newmans, they'll blame her. "Watch your back."
At home, Adam and Chelsea are preparing to leave on their babymoon. Nick arrives, saying Tucker is free and a serious threat to the company - it's a Newman family problem. Adam says the Newmans never treated him like family unless they need something. Nick wonders if he'll let an outsider take what's theirs. Adam reminds him he's always treated him like an outsider. Nick says he hasn't changed - he's the same selfish bastard he's always been.
At Newman, Victor asks Victoria to find out what she can about Jack's activities from Billy. She can't do that. They work to buy back shares and stave off a hostile takeover. Victor mutters, "Bring it on, Jack Abbott."
In court, Michael gets Kevin to identify a photo of Tim Reid, however, when Michael asks about the last time he saw Reid, Kevin totally refuses to cooperate. Michael asks if he was alive the last time he saw him. The judge gets ill and proceedings halt. Fen arrives with Lauren and Michael hugs him. They lay into him for lying and not calling. Lauren tells Phyllis that Summer's on her way home. Later, Summer arrives and tells Phyllis she came to see her get punished. Nick appears in time to hear Summer tell Phyllis she hates her. Another judge takes over. He says he needs to go over the case and decide if they can proceed. "Court is in recess." Both sides whisper about what might happen. Kevin tells Chloe he's in an impossible position thanks to her. Phyllis tries to speak to Kevin but Michael intervenes. Ronan arrives and smiles at Phyllis. They whisper about the case and Summer freaks out. Ronan stops Phyllis from following her out. Nick glares. Meanwhile, Kevin refuses to speak to Chloe and Daniel whispers with Heather. The judge returns. Paul tells Chris he thinks Phyllis will get off. The judge dismisses the case.
Jack arrives at Adam's house and asks him to sell his Newman shares to him so he can stick it to his old man. Later, Adam tells Chelsea they need to go before anyone else shows up. Chelsea wishes the Newmans could see how much they've hurt him. He says the only family he needs is her and the baby.
Fen finds Summer on the patio. He says he was worried she'd do something crazy. She suggests going to Chicago with fake IDs. Fen is appalled. She says he's lame. Inside, Billy and Vikki discuss Newman and their families. They agree not to let it mess them up. Later, Noah meets Fen, who is worried Summer will do something dangerous.
Jack appears in Victor's office to tell him he bought Adam's shares. He says 'Abbott Enterprises' has a nice ring to it. Victor tells him to give it his best shot.
Summer is driving in her car and crying. Adam and Chelsea are also driving and chatting about Adam finally being out of Victor's orbit. Chelsea screams, "Watch out!" In her car, Summer screams and swerves.
