Abby welcomes Jack into the Abbott mansion; she’s so happy he’s moving back in. She brings up the fact that Phyllis and Billy live there and he acknowledges it’s weird…but this is where he belongs; this is home. Talk turns to Abby leaving Newman. Jack feels Victor never gave her the respect she deserved. Abby relays that Arturo stayed behind on the business trip; she suspects he’s avoiding his brother, Rey. Jack muses that relationships with brothers can get complex. They switch gears to Dina. Jack wants to be angry with her at times, but now he’s just sad. They discuss Jack’s paternity. Abby recalls Dina repeatedly spoke of the Club and the Stardust Inn – she may have actually had an affair. Jack decides she’s brilliant. Later, Jack hears Ashley on a call with Neil. Ash reports that Sofia is stable and Jack fishes about their relationship. Ash admits they’re dating. Jack thinks it would be cool if they found happiness together. Talk turns to his paternity and Abby rejoins them. Her earlier idea didn’t pan out, but Jack wants them to put their heads together – he needs to know the truth. Ash agrees to help. Jack wants her to ask Neil if the server company ever came across anything personal of Dina’s. Abby looks at the photo Dina kept in the safety deposit box. Ash remarks it’s curious, since she never had an affair with Phillip Chancellor. Her remark gives Jack an idea. They look at the way the men in the photo are admiring Dina. Jack theorizes that when Phillip rejected her, she turned to one of the men – he has to find out which one is his father.
