At the penthouse door, Billy asks Chelsea if he can see Connor. She wonders if he's drunk. Billy reminds her she promised he could see him whenever he wanted to. She says Connor's sleeping, so he asks to hang out. Chelsea is puzzled. He says he's searching for 'good' tonight. "It's been a rough day." Chelsea relents. After Billy sees Connor tension rises when Adam's name comes up. They decide to order pizza and have a drink. She warns him off the topic of Adam and asks about Victoria.

Chelsea can relate - she did the same thing, but they made their way back together because it was true love. Billy turns to go, but she tells him to stay and watch a movie. They get settled and Billy blurts out the ending. They laugh.
At the hospital, Stitch is surprised to see Ashley. He asks what brings her by and they chat. She asks when he's off duty. Stitch says he has a date. Victoria appears.

Victoria tells Ben that Ashley is her former step-mother and asks what she's doing there anyway. Ashley says she came to say hello to a friend. Stitch goes to change and Ashley grills Victoria about Billy. Vikki says it's none of her business. She tells Ashley she can't set herself up for anymore disappointment. She wonders if Ashley's concerned about her marriage or about her relationship with Ben. He returns looking spiffy.

She says they can still have their date and gets French takeout brought in. Victoria asks about his connection with Ashley and admits she was jealous. He likes that.

She panics when she thinks he's calling the cops. He calls Sharon to apologize for leaving her and asks that Noah take her home. After, Nick demands to know who the Cassie doppelganger is, and why she looks like Cassie. She pretends not to know who Cassie is, and Nick explains. He wonders how she got past the ranch security and starts searching her room. She weakly protests that she'll call the cops. Nick finds photos of Cassie in her bag and wonders if she's still going to say it's a coincidence. He accuses her of haunting Sharon and calls her evil and twisted. She blurts, "It wasn't my idea!" Nick demands to know who wanted her to pretend to be Cassie.
At Sharon's house, Courtney asks about Cassie while looking at albums. Suddenly Sharon has a flashback to seeing Cassie in the living room. She talks to Noah and Courtney about it.
