Over wine, Phyllis says she thinks it’s a mistake, but Jack insists he’s doing what he knows is right. He distracts her with kisses. After making love, Phyllis decides to go out for air. Jack showers and notices a missed call from Ashley. He calls Phyllis to see if she’s okay and gets voicemail. Outside, Phyllis runs into Ian Ward. He points out a bright star and says it’s his wife; she just passed away. He notices her wedding ring and asks about her marriage. She admits she’s having trouble with her husband’s decisions lately.

Michael insists he’s trying to investigate everything to help him. Cane says things can happen – like crimes of passion. Devon hollers that he didn’t kill Hilary. He came to talk to the so-called witness. Jimmy arrives. Devon challenges him to tell his story to his face. Jimmy concedes that Devon is smaller than the man he saw, and the man had more hair. “It probably wasn’t you.” After, Devon is about to head back to Genoa City, but Cane gets a call that someone saw a woman on a gurney being loaded onto a plane at a remote airstrip on the same day Hilary disappeared. Michael thinks Devon should go. Devon won’t leave until he finds out what happened to his wife.

She learns that Jack assigned him to a special project that involves Victor. Chelsea is skeptical about them working together to fight a common enemy. She’s angry that he’s back in the middle of Jack and Victor and dragging her and Connor along for the ride. Later, Adam gets a call from Ian, who wonders if he’s getting cold feet.
