At Katherine’s mansion, trapped by the storm, Billy and Phyllis sit on the floor by the fire and toast him moving into his new home and starting a new life after Victoria. He doesn’t think she wants him anymore. Phyllis shares that she and Jack are dealing with their relationship like grown-ups. She declares that things will only get better and that Victor will be convicted – he’s going down.

Billy goes to get more firewood and loses his balance. Phyllis reaches out and they embrace and share a passionate kiss. He’s sorry, and she says this did not happen.

At the fundraiser at the Club, Jack talks to Paul on the phone and asks him to keep an eye out for Billy and Phyllis. Nearby, Hilary and Ashley have words. Hilary and Devon leave and Lauren stops by to say it’s wonderful Ashley matched Devon’s donation. She finds Michael who’s talking to Victor on the phone. Once they disconnect, Michael admits to Lauren that he’s trying to play the devoted lawyer. Meanwhile, Neil stands by as Jack thanks Devon for his generous donation. Hilary jumps in and says they’ll help however they can. After they head out, Ash and Neville approach and Neil goes for a coffee with the doctor. Ashley and Jack chat about Hilary. Ash thinks she’s shameless but he believes she could be useful. He asks his sister to come back to Jabot. She tells him that Jabot is in capable hands and wonders where Billy and Phyllis are. Jack muses that it might be the weather keeping them away or they’re plotting something behind his back again. Elsewhere, Neil chats with Michael and assumes he’ll be in prime form for Victor’s trial. He assures him he will be. Luca and Summer watch Michael and Lauren leave and Luca questions that nobody minds he’s defending the enemy.
