Adam arrives at home, where Chelsea confronts him about lying - she knows he wasn't with Jack because she called the office. Adam lies that he met Jack at Gloworm. Chelsea reminds him they fell in love because they couldn't shock the other and didn't keep secrets. She asks if he blames her for losing their son, or if there's someone else. He says no, but Chelsea insists there is something going on and storms out. Sharon appears and flips on Adam for lying to Chelsea. She says the hiding is driving her crazy - she has to confess to Victor. Adam insists she let things blow over and trust him. Sharon says she's a wall between him and Chelsea - she won't make things worse. Later, Chelsea returns, saying she just wants to be with Adam. They kiss and Adam leaves to get dinner.

Ronan says he broke Nick and Phyllis up and Avery's reaping the rewards. Avery snipes at him, but he shrugs that he admits he wants Phyllis - he doesn't want Nick to take her back anymore than Avery does. Later, Ronan runs into Phyllis. She says she got a job offer and came to terms with the death of her marriage. He asks her to dinner. She says no but suggests he keep trying. Phyllis leaves Summer a tearful message that she loves her.
