Victor arrives at the tackhouse to get an update on Christian’s crisis from Nick. He’s irked to hear that Sharon and Dylan were at the hospital. Nick assures him he’s still committed to keeping them from getting visitation. Victor muses about a problem. Leslie arrives and gets in the loop. She warns that Michael could use the crisis against him. Nick realizes he gave them ammunition to portray him as an incompetent parent. Leslie goes. Victor tells Nick they’ll use the GB Buzz interview to highlight Dylan and Sharon’s histories with mental illness. Frustrated, Nick observes that he was an incompetent father. Victor disagrees. Nick says his other children had their mother; with Christian it’s just him. Victor reassures him.

At Sharon’s house, Dylan returns from a run and Faith comes downstairs – she wants to go back to Nick’s – Christian is home. They reassure Faith that the crisis wasn’t her fault. Sharon is pleased to hear Faith wants to stay with them tonight and go back to her normal schedule. Michael arrives. Faith reports that Christian is going to be okay, which prompts Michael to seek an explanation. They fill him in. Discussion ensues about violating the restraining order at the hospital. Michael thinks the situation with Nick provides them with an opportunity since he left the boy with a sitter and didn’t warn her about the life-threatening allergy. Sharon and Dylan don’t like where this is going. Michael asks how badly they want this visitation. Once alone, Dylan and Sharon debate about dragging Nick through the mud. If they don’t do it, they’ll have to accept they’ll probably lose.
