At the Quartermaine estate, Michael puts Wiley to bed and then chats with Brook Lynn about her starting work at ELQ in the morning. Chase arrives with beer and she takes off. The cop wants to talk about Nelle. They discuss how criminals seem to get all the legal protection and wonder who could be in cahoots with Nelle. Chase nearly gags on his beer when Michael tells him he’s thinking of getting married to help keep custody of Wiley.

Britt drops by the courthouse to check on Brad, much to his surprise. She informs him she got her medical license back and assures him they won’t let Nelle win. Brad says it’s too late: he pled guilty. She’s appalled he rolled over so easy. He tells her that Sonny threatened to bump him off. Britt gets him to go over the details of the accident. Brad could have used a friend during all of this. The topic turns to her mom being arrested. She’s sorry her mom helped mess up his life. Brad just wanted to be good enough for Lucas but bungled it. “You can’t change who you really are,” she says. Britt’s proud of him for giving so much up for someone he loves. The bailiff arrives to cuff him and escort him out.

They sit across the room and gossip. Sasha says that she and Michael have been talking about marriage. She’s freaking out a little because she could wind up being Wiley’s mom. Things are happening really fast. Meanwhile, thanks to her lawyer, Nelle has learned about Brad’s plea and starts nagging Julian. He tells her she’s not fit to be a mother. By the time he grows up, Wiley likely won’t even know she exists. She starts talking about renaming the baby until Willow storms over and begins lecturing her. Nelle reminds her that her son is dead and orders her to stay away from Wiley. Willow chucks a drink in her face. Sasha tells her she deserves worse. Nelle calls her a tramp and refuses to leave. After Willow and Sasha sit down, the teacher encourages her to marry Michael. That would help him retain custody. Willow goes outside and Chase joins her. Back inside, Julian kicks Nelle out and Britt immediately props up at the bar.
