She assumes by now Nick should be done at the cemetery, so she says she needs to go spend time with her little girl.

Mac tells Billy that the person she was telling Chloe about does indeed exist, she wasn’t making it up. He wants to know why she never mentioned this before. She tells him maybe her heart was broken and didn’t want to talk about it. She wishes she had never called him saying it was on an impulse so she thinks he needs to get over himself. Billy asks her why she kissed him back then. Mac is surprised that he is talking to her like this while his wife and daughter are just over on the other side of the room. He tells her then they can go inside. This irritates Mac so she huffs off telling him she doesn’t know what she ever saw in him.

Amber asks Chloe doesn’t it bother her watching Mac turning away Billy hitting on her in front of her family. Chloe isn’t sure what she is going to do, she says this was more than she bargained for. Amber tells her she got the ring and she got the guy so she should fight for him.

Jack goes to the BBQ saying there is no other place he would rather be right now. He explains to Katherine that it is the 4th anniversary of Cassie’s death so Sharon won’t be coming. She needed a little time alone. Then we see Phyllis sitting at her desk looking at a photo of her and Nick together.

Nick squats down behind her when she says things are going to be OK and she promises. Sharon stands up to leave when she sees Nick there but he stops her telling her not to go.

Sharon tells Nick they can’t do this and walks off only to have Nick follow her apologizing. He tells her he thought they should be grieving together. He says he wasn’t asking for anything else. She turns around and tells him it has been 4 years ago and it still feels like yesterday. Nick tells her he can’t help but wonder if them moving on would be like abandoning Cassie.

Nina gets Amber to talk about how Katherine started having flashbacks of her memory. Amber thinks at first it was when she remembered about giving up her baby girl, but she then says that wasn’t it. She says Katherine was drunk and bitter and obsessed with getting revenge on Jill. She took Jill’s baby and gave Jill another baby that belonged to a stranger. Then she blacked that all out of her mind which Nina knows that that child was still treated as a Chancellor. All the time this horrible event was trapped inside her. Eventually in the end everyone knew all the secrets. Nina said well secrets have a way of doing that sometimes.

Chloe keeps making a point of reminding Billy that Mac is avoiding him. Billy wants to find out more about this mystery guy, saying he still thinks the guy doesn’t exist. Suddenly we hear Surprise! And we see Raul coming in. As Jack shakes his hand he says this must be a Glow by Jabot reunion. Billy introduces Raul to everyone as his best friend and best man at his wedding right here and then he hushes. Chloe nudges him as she wants a personal introduction so Billy introduces her as his wife Chloe. Rail jokes around telling her that she has done the impossible and then he looks surprised when he hears they also have a baby. He looks at Billy and tells him Dude you have been busy. Billy asks what brought him back to Genoa City. Mac walks in and is surprised to see Raul.

Cane and Lily drink more champagne when she wonders about Australia. She tells Cane she would love to go there before they have any kids. She says she wants to see how he became this amazing man that he is. Cane looks at her and tells her that she made him this amazing man. They clink glasses as they toast to them!

Amber ends her story with Nina saying it was a second chance for everyone. Nina says not for everyone though. Everyone is really shocked when Mac goes over to Raul and gives him a big kiss. Murphy notices and says out loud, that’s some kiss hello. Chloe gets her dig into Billy by saying she guesses the mystery man is real after all. Katherine tells Jack she had no idea and then says it must have started in Darfur. Jack says if love can survive there it can survive anything.
