Sonny says Deimos is not fit to run things. Deimos doesn’t care what Sonny thinks and tells him to pack up and leave if he doesn’t like how he’s running things. Sonny refuses and tells Deimos he will resign from Titan. After Sonny leaves, Victor returns home and warns Deimos that Sonny is not happy with him.

Nicole knows Chloe still loves her, and she recounts their history together, including Chloe agreeing to be her surrogate.

Joey and Jade are studying at their apartment when Jade gets a call from Kayla who informs her that her father is in the hospital and it is serious.
Jade and Joey arrive at the hospital. Kayla tells Jade that her father’s liver is barely functioning due to cirrhosis and that he needs a transplant. Kayla explains that her mom left him two weeks ago, and her brother has left the country, so she’s the only family they could find. Jade and Joey go in to see Hal. He assumes she has heard the news, and explains that his best shot is a transplant from a relative. He asks if she’d take the test to see if she’s a match. Jade responds, “After what you did to me? Hell no!” She storms out of the room and Joey follows her. In the hall, Jade asks Kayla about the test and how the donation works. Kayla explains the procedure.
Brady runs into Nicole in Horton Square and asks her what has happened. Nicole tells him about the restraining order. Brady holds her and tells her that he’ll always be here for her. He also believes in time Chloe will come to her senses and return Holly.
Sonny meets Steve and Paul in the park and asks them to keep a close eye on Deimos for him and report to him if he so much as spits in public. Steve agrees, and then leaves to return to the hospital.

Steve returns to the hospital where he and Kayla tell Joey he needs to support Jade no matter what she decides to do. Joey sees Jade go into her father Hal’s room. Hal assumes Jade isn’t going to help him. She says she will take the test and if she’s a match then she will donate part of her liver to him.
