At Crimson Lights, Kevin tells Mariah that Natalie has agreed to hold off on finding investors until Billy’s out of surgery. Mariah worries she’ll change her mind, but Kevin says they have a mind meld that’s better than sex. He then presents Mariah with a birthday present. She humors him and opens it – it’s a toy red Ferrari. He says she’ll get a life-size model when they strike it rich. Mariah thanks him.

Jack rants at Victor for not having an ounce of compassion considering Billy’s hospitalized. Victor fishes to find out what venture Billy was hoping to invest in, but Jack and Victoria are called away. Phyllis calls Victor out on being interested in Billy’s deal because Jack’s interested.

At Sharon and Dylan’s place, he talks to the baby about having yet another celebration for Mariah’s birthday. Dr. Anderson arrives and tells them Sharon can change her meds. Sharon and Dylan are leery – she’s been doing so well. Anderson says there will be less of a filter between the world and Sharon’s feelings. After, Anderson draws Sharon out about Sage and Nick and learns they moved back in together. Sage and Faith arrive. Sage holds Sully while Sharon and Faith go to the kitchen. Sage questions Anderson being so involved in Sharon’s personal life. Anderson wonders why it upsets her. Sage points out it’s a professional conflict of interest. Sharon and Faith return to take Sully. Anderson questions Sage interacting with Sharon’s baby. Sage defends how well she’s doing. Anderson says she advised Nick not to move in with her. Sage says her relationship is none of her damn business. “Stay out of it!” Sharon returns as Anderson leaves. Sage complains to Sharon about that woman inserting herself in her marriage. Sharon defends her. “All our lives are connected.” Sage thinks there’s more to it.

At Crimson Lights, Mariah gets a text and leaves for Sharon’s as Jack arrives and tells Kevin he wants to invest in his deal on Billy’s behalf. Kevin acts dodgy. Jack asks if there’s another offer on the table.

Mariah enters Sharon’s house. Sharon and Faith yell, “Surprise! Happy Birthday!”

At the hospital, Dr. Anderson tells Nick that she saw Sage at Sharon’s, and she got in over her head with the baby. She hints that Sage could be a danger to Sully.

Elsewhere, Phyllis and Victoria learn that Billy suffered cardiac arrest during surgery and currently has very little brain activity.
