Devon says she’s gorgeous and she vows to handle the pregnancy in her own unique way. They kiss. A technician arrives – Devon’s set up a mobile ultrasound.

At Crimson Lights, Victoria, Nikki, Sharon, and Phyllis view the close-up from the security footage and debate if it’s JT. Phyllis’ hunch is that it’s doctored. The others aren’t so sure. They speculate that if it’s JT, he’s focused on revenge on Victor now, but could come after them. Victoria can’t believe she’s unsure if it’s JT or not, and they wonder how to be sure. After discussion, Phyllis decides they have to dig up the grave. Nikki can close the park and they’ll convene there as soon as possible. Nick appears. Sharon tells him they began talking about JT during their charity meeting. Vikki updates him on the security footage. Phyllis gets a text from Summer to have lunch. The group breaks up.

Nick has no sympathy. Nikki angrily defends Victor, who is desperate about hanging onto what he has. Nick rails back, and Sharon jumps in to say it’s not Nikki’s fault. Apologies ensue. Nick misses Christian and wants him home. Choked up, Nick pleads with Nikki, “He needs me.” Nick decides she’s covering for Victor again and his anger returns.
At the Dive Bar, Jack tells Victoria that JT visited him in jail. Victoria muses he should have confessed, and asks if he said anything else. Jack recalls he said he wished Jack had never gone by the ranch last night. Victoria notes her father would have died. Jack hopes they’re being careful. Jack joins Kyle, who’s surprised to hear he turned down Billy’s bonus – Kyle took his straight to the bank. Talk turns to Jack’s next move. He’ll sue Jill and plans to put Dina on the witness stand. Kyle expresses doubt, but Jack’s out of options. Kyle muses about them possibly running Chancellor and decides he’ll help his father with Dina, as long as she’s comfortable. He suggests doing a ‘walk through’ first and Jack agrees.
