Victoria leans on him – she worries about the kids and her parents – she can’t fix this. She explains her mother confessed out of nowhere when the police came to get Victor, and Rey wanted to interrogate her again. She can’t say anything else until she talks to her mother. Billy feels JT’s the only one to blame and assures her the truth will come out.

Sharon confirms he questioned her too. Phyllis worries they’re a step closer to the whole thing blowing up in their faces. Sharon feels if Nikki framed it as self-defence, they may just let her go. Phyllis asks if anyone’s told her about Santa Claus yet, then warns Nikki better stick to her story – she’s not going down for this. After Phyllis exits, Victoria and Sharon agree they have to have their stories straight. Sharon tries to reassure her about Nikki, but Vikki fears she could serve a life sentence because of her.

Sharon gets stunning news.
