At the hospital, Billy gets an update from Abby on Chance’s condition and he breaks the news that Adam’s the number one suspect. Abby’s confused as Chance shared some kind of bond with Adam. Billy offers to sit with Chance while she gets coffee but she quickly realizes he came for a story; a follow-up on his exposé on Adam. She rails, “How could you possibly try to take advantage of what we’re going through?!” Billy’s sick of people he cares about hurting because of Adam and asks, “Aren’t you angry?” Distraught, Abby pleads, “Not now.” He apologizes.

Rey visits Chelsea at the Chancellor Estate. She doesn’t want to believe Adam’s involved in the shooting. He asks why she wanted an urgent meeting with Chance. Chelsea could see Adam was being pushed past his limit and maybe wanted to retaliate against Victor and the family; she thought Chance could help. Rey understands she wants to protect him, but Chelsea says, “I’m afraid it’s too late for that.” Rey asks about the building. Chelsea spent the night locked in a room there — she believes Adam had her kidnapped so she wouldn’t interfere with his plan. She reveals she found schematics for Newman Tower on his laptop and marks on certain areas. Later, Chelsea calls Connor to hear his voice and is sorry he can’t talk to his father. Chloe and Kevin assure her she’ll be safe as she worries about Adam figuring out she escaped. Chelsea hopes Chance wakes up and someone stops Adam from going further than he already has.
