Lily had hoped she would be able to give Cane some good news so she is disappointed now that she can’t. She says since he lost Delia he has had his heart set on starting a new family.

He says he can’t live with Phyllis anymore though. Victor says it is hard watching him do what he himself has done because he knows the pain that it causes. He tells Nick that he doesn’t regret being with Ashley but that is different because Nikki left him and she got involved with this no good SOB, whatever his name was. Nick says he means David Chow.

At the club, Jill isn’t impressed with the guy looking for her a job. He tells her that even the slightest whiff of scandal and no company will hire her. She blames all this on Katherine’s comeback. The guy tells Jill she’s overexposed. Jill says that is just great, that witch comes out smelling like a rose and she is blackballed. She decides to find her own job. She says once she lands something his firm won’t represent anything over a day worker again. She walks out leaving him to pay the bill.

Katherine tells Cane that she will take care of business and he can get started on his family. She says blood or not she is always going to be his Grandmother. He tells her he loves her and then he leaves. Katherine says to herself, “Jill, Director of Research & Development, no, I’ll be damned if I let you spit in my face again.” When Nina walks in she asks if that was Cane leaving. She wonders if he is avoiding answering her questions. Katherine asks her not to question Cane anymore and then she asks her to just leave him out of all this.

Neil goes to the club bar and meets with Tyra who is moping over a cup of coffee. She tells him Devon is not happy with their relationship.

Jill finds herself desperate to find a job. She walks into a beauty salon and a woman approaches her asking her what will it be, a manicure or a pedicure.

Adam tells Rafe he will make sure Victor sees the box Estella brought them. Rafe promises he won’t rest until he finds out who has framed his aunt. Heather gets a call and then kisses Adam saying she has to run. Adam goes to Ashley who now can’t help but wonder is Estella really is innocent. She says she has been a loyal employee there all these years and it makes no sense why she would turn on Victor now. Victor comes in and Adam looks like he is guilty of something.

Tyra tells Neil she doesn’t want to be responsible for Neil losing Devon especially since she already cost him his marriage. She says she never should have lied to Devon even if it was for Anna’s sake. She says he hates her now. Neil thinks they will be close again one day saying he is sure that as much as she misses him  Devon misses her even more.

While he is shooting hoops Devon thinks back to Tyra. Roxanne walks up asking him if he wants to grab a bite to eat with her. He tells her he is glad she came along, as he kisses her but while kissing her he imagines himself kissing Tyra instead. She asks what is wrong when he backs away from her but he insists nothing is wrong that he is fine.

Cane is happy to see Lily. She says there wasn’t really a seminar that she had to attend. She says she didn’t believe her pregnancy test but she thought Olivia wanted to see her to tell her that she was pregnant. Cane tells her she is still young and they still have plenty of time and he doesn’t want her stressed out over this. She tells him she loves him so much and he says he loves her too. He assures her it will happen. He says the best part is that they get to keep trying.

Nina tells Katherine they can’t leave Cane out of this, especially after what she learned from Paul. Katherine tells her she doesn’t think Cane knows anything though saying he was just a baby for heaven’s sake. She says who could blame him for wanting to put his childhood past behind him. Nina felt since she met Cane that he has been lying to her and playing her and Jill. She says he probably isn’t even the real Phillip. Katherine stands up and tells her not to say another word and then she walks away.

Heather meets with Paul to tell him that Mary Jane has dropped the restraining order. Paul can’t help but wonder what made her change her mind. Heather tells him to steer clear of Mary Jane though. He says yeah, yeah of course, stay clear of her, he’s got it.

The owner of the beauty salon tells a customer that is there for a manicure that she will love this new girl. She calls out saying hey hon, you’ve got a customer. Jill walks out in her white uniform as she was hired as a manicurist. She tells the customer to pick a color as she sits down.

Katherine thinks this is absurd. Nick says but not impossible. Katherine thinks he is too decent and honest. She says if there is a hole in his story it didn’t come from him. She insists he is repeating what he has been told. Nina tells her this is not about  Jill or Cane or Katherine anymore, it is about her and her son so there is no way in hell she is going to let go of this.

Mary Jane is talking to Kitty again asking if they have seen the last of Paul. She hides the kitty when there is a knock at the door. When she opens the door Paul hugs her. He asks why she didn’t tell him. She says she wanted to but it has been hard keeping this secret from someone she was so close to. When Paul walks in he says he doesn’t know what to think, saying the whole thing is a shock to him. She tells him he can’t tell anyone or it will ruin everything. Then suddenly she thinks of Paul asking her how long she thought she was going to be able to fool him. He tells her she has got to come clean and tell the world who she is or he will. She tells him to stop ordering her around. She always hated when he did that to her. She suddenly realizes she was only imagining that. She puts kitty away and grabs her purse and on her way out she bumps into Nick. She congratulates him for getting back with his ex after all these years, she says she never got over her first love either and she never will. Nick just rolls his eyes as she walks off.

Adam thinks back to the night Ashley fell down the stairs and miscarried. He drops the laptop when he nods off to sleep on his bed. Sabrina’s voice is heard and he desperately tries to stop it by shutting the laptop off. He angrily tells it to make it stop. He punches buttons but it just won’t shut up.

Ashley is downstairs wondering now if Estella really is innocent. She and Victor both hear Sabrina’s voice from upstairs and she tells him that is what she heard on the phone. Victor walks into Adam’s room asking him what the hell he was doing. Adam sits there looking like he has just been busted.
