In the hospital, Faith dozes off while playing chess with Victor and he tears up.

Rey arrives at home accompanied by Nick, where Sharon, having just sent a text, explains she was on her way back to the hospital. Rey informs her he can’t look the other way on Faith’s accident – she was drinking and driving underage without a license. She’ll probably get a fine, community service, and be assessed for dependency. Sharon and Nick are in agreement there should be consequences.

After Nick leaves, Rey has one more thing to discuss with Sharon — Adam. He shows her Adam on the security footage saving Faith. She asks if it makes sense that the person who did this for Faith would also poison him. Rey snaps that Adam did a good thing it doesn’t erase the fact he’s so obsessed with her he tried to kill him. He reminds her of the evidence he found. Sharon knows it looks bad, but reminds him there was more to the story when Chance was shot and he suspected Billy.

At the lake, Adam gets a text from Sharon saying she’ll be there as soon as she can and breathes a sigh of relief.

At her place, Sharon gets a text from Adam, who warns her to make sure she’s not followed when she comes to see him. She tells Rey she has to go to the coffee house and would like to continue their conversation later.

At the hotel, Lauren curtly greets Phyllis, who hopes she’s there to advise her of Sally’s transfer to Los Angeles. Lauren wants to know why she’s suddenly maneuvering behind Sally’s back — is she afraid of getting on her bad side? Phyllis snarks that she’s not afraid of Sally the Schemer, she just thinks her moving is the best solution for all involved. Frustrated, Lauren snaps, “Solution for what?!” She wonders if Sally has threatened Summer. Phyllis won’t get into it with her and walks off.

In her suite, Amanda gets a text from Devon that he’s downstairs with Moses and to swing by if she can. Just then, there’s a knock at her door. The man says, “Hello. I’m Sutton Ames.” Amanda levels, “I know exactly who you are. You’re my grandfather.” She immediately confronts him for forcing his daughter to give up her twin baby girls. Sutton shrugs that it was Naya’s decision in the end and he had good reasons for steering her in that direction. “Her best interests and mine coincided and to this day I believe it was the right choice.” Amanda wonders if his speech writers drafted that; if so, they forgot who his audience would be. He urges her to forgive. She snarks; that would also be in his own best interests.
Sutton no regret Amanda Y&R

Amanda informs Sutton she doesn’t need his approval as Naya did when she was young. She’s looked at the evidence and doesn’t believe he’s responsible for her father’s death but she blames him for the life of loneliness she endured. She rages at him for showing indifference and not working to keep her and Hilary together. It’s his turn to worry that she’ll turn her back on him now. Sutton confirms he wants her to defend him because of the good optics. Amanda warns she won’t acknowledge their relationship if she takes the case.

Sutton stuns Amanda by revealing he kept tabs on her and Hilary all their lives; he wanted to know they were alright. Amanda snaps that they weren’t alright. Sutton feels they rose above their challenges beautifully. Amanda snarls, “No thanks to you!” Unbothered, Sutton agrees, and muses about how alike they are. He can open doors for Amanda and she can become part of a powerful family. “I look forward to hearing your decision,” he states as he leaves.
