He rants about him distracting from her cancer battle and asks, “Don’t you have enough on your conscience?” Sharon appears. Noah exits and Adam tells Sharon he can’t stay with Chelsea and Connor while he’s falling apart – he must be alone. He promises to check in with Sharon, who pushes to know where he’ll go. Adam swears her to absolute secrecy, before texting her the address of his motel. Noah reappears to show Adam out and lectures him about seeking help from someone else and warns him to stay away.

At Society, Devon notices Amanda’s nervous. She explains it’s personal and asks what day Hilary was born. She reveals the rare blood type connection and explains she’s not certain of her date of birth. Child services guesstimated July 2. Devon exhales – Hilary’s was July 1. Amanda asks if he’d be willing to help her find the truth and apologetically asks for something of Hilary’s. Devon is understanding, but wants to think about it. Amanda will give Nate her DNA sample…if Devon decides to participate he can give Hilary’s item to him. If he chooses not to, she won’t bother him about it again. Once alone, Devon looks at a photo of him and Hilary while thinking.

Nikki’s irked when Chelsea suggests Victor should have left it at that and asks if it was really worth shattering Adam’s life so Victoria could hang onto a job. When she accuses Victor of not being there for Adam, Nikki snaps, “That is enough!” This is Chelsea’s greed and lust for power coming back to bite her and references her ‘cold little grifter’ heart. Chelsea declares she won’t bring Connor there anymore and storms out. Victor thinks something has to be done to protect the boy.
