No one has heard from Phillip since he left the estate yesterday. Katherine says 20 years of heartache and lies, why would you want to run after him. Jill wants a chance to do this right. Katherine won’t be blamed for running Phillip off. He should have just told them all he was gay. Nina yells at them to stop the bickering saying all this is hard enough to take.

Phillip remarks that he can see nothing has changed between them. Nina says she just can’t pretend the last 20 years never happened though. Jill says Nina is only taking sides with Katherine. Nina says this isn’t about sides. She says it devastated her when Phillip died. They all explain the guilt the other should have Phillip tells them all if he had it to do all over again he would do the same thing. Nina asks how he could say that, that he would abandon his son again. Katherine asks who the hell is he, saying he never gave them a chance.

Nick and Victor talk until the doctor comes downstairs. He recommends that since he is no psychiatrist that Ashley speaks to a professional. Victor says he tried to get her to do that but he can’t force her. The good doctor tells Victor she needs to get nothing but rest and to avoid anything that can give her stress. He goes to his car to get a sedative for Ashley. Victor wishes she would seek some professional help. Nick understand why she is reluctant saying if Victor had a history of breakdowns would he want to be diagnosed? Detective Wallace calls and Victor says he will be right there.

Lily talks to Cane about the hopes and dreams they had when they got married. She remembers a part of their vows…” whatever lies ahead of us, good or bad”… and Cane finishes it saying, “I’ll always be your soft place to fall”… She tells him she just wants honesty from the man who just may be a con man. He admits he did want a family with her but thank God she isn’t pregnant. He knows he hurt her and now she is free to be with someone she can trust. He says sad that person isn’t him. He hopes this will give her some closure. He tells her he has put the house on the market and he is leaving Genoa City for good. He says he is sorry he couldn’t be the man she deserves. When he leaves Lily looks a bit confused.

Nick catches Adam walking out with some clothes and he claims it is Ashley’s dry cleaning. Nick tells him the staff can do that and those clothes look brand new anyway. Nick asks him what about the ankle monitor anyway. Adam tells him he can go ask Ashley if he doesn’t believe him and then asks if Nick wants to be his jailer. Nick tells him he doesn’t really care what he does and Adam tells him the feeling is mutual.

Victor says he has no idea how his wallet got in Sharon’s suite either. He doesn’t want to file any charges though. Gill looks at Sharon and tells her he hopes this doesn’t happen again. Sharon thanks them both for believing her.

Katherine tells Phillip he let them think he was dead for 20 years and now he is blaming them. Nina asks how they could know the real Phillip. Phillip says he never felt safe enough to tell anyone that he was gay because he figured they would all try judging him. Jill seems to be the only one to understand, saying she knows the high expectations of those blessed enough to be a Chancellor. She goes to the door only to find Cane standing there. He says he is only there to say good bye because he is leaving town.

Devon comes back and finds Lily crying so he tries to comfort her. She tells him she didn’t have the nerve to tell Cane about her being pregnant which Cane says he considers it a blessing that she didn’t get pregnant. Suddenly Lily doubles over in pain in her stomach which Devon rushes to call 911.

Mary Jane likes the new clothes that Adam brought to her. She picks one out saying it will look fabulous on her. Adam says he has been thinking of a way for her to reunite with Jack. She says maybe he can get Jack to come out to the ranch. She asks if her to get all dolled up to meet Jack in a potting shed, oh how romantic!. Adam says he will get word out to Jack that his sister needs him. He tells Mary Jane if Jack truly loves her it shouldn’t matter where they meet. She suggests that he calls Jack while she starts getting ready. When Adam leaves she laughs saying Adam must think she has sucker written across her forehead. She tells Kitty to get ready, they are going out.

Jack and Victor think Sharon needs help. Sharon says she didn’t steal that wallet. Victor says he believes her and says he will talk to the housekeeper. Sharon congratulates Victor on his marriage. Nick comes in to see if Sharon is OK and when Jack leaves to make a call Nick sits in his seat as he is about to ask her about the wallet being in her room.

Lily cries out in pain when the doctor pushes on parts of her stomach. She tells him she is just a few months pregnant. She also tells him about her embryonic pregnancy. When the doctor goes to check on her tests results she tells Devon she can’t handle losing another child. She says after losing Cane she really wants this baby and even though it might sound crazy she wishes her were there with her.

Cane tells everyone he is sorry for putting them through all this and he isn’t sure where he is going. Phillip defends Cane saying none of this is his fault. Cane appreciates everyone opening their hearts to him and he will always love Jill and Katherine. He tells them to welcome Phillip back and to love him as much as they hate him. He says good bye but Jill tells him to wait but Phillip says he doesn’t know how Jill and Katherine can let Cane go.

He tells them they are letting this guy walk out of their lives as Cane is about to walk out. He reminds them that the money they gave him as a wedding gift went to charity, so it is obvious he wasn’t after their money. Katherine says Cane prayed on their feelings but Phillip says they loved him like a son and Katherine is always opening her home to strays, so can’t she do the same for the man who loves her. He tells Cane he is so sorry he got him into this. Cane doesn’t blame Phillip. He tells him he has a great family and for him to appreciate them. Phillip begs them not to let Cane walk out of their lives.

Mary Jane looks fresh when she arrives at Crimson Lights and she tells herself welcome back to the land of the living. She tells Kitty he will get a saucer of milk.

Adam lets Victor know that Nick left. He says the doctor says Ashley is doing much better now too, thank God. Victor says he won’t forget what a good friend he has been to Ashley. Adam tells him she makes it easy to be her friend. When the doctor comes down he tells Victor Ashley is finally sleeping. He says he would like to speak to Victor about another matter. Victor asks and what would that be. He says it is about his son, Adam.

Sharon tells Nick it seems like he likes riding to her rescue when she is in trouble. She says yes she is the mother of his son but unless it has something to do with Noah they shouldn’t be together. She says he belongs at the hospital with his wife and daughter. She tells him to go and give Summer a kiss for her. On his way out Nick passes Jack who is going in to check on Sharon. She tells him she is tired so she is going to go to her room and rest. He tells her to call him if she needs him.

The doctor tells Victor that Ashley has been depending on Adam for support and Victor says yes he has been very helpful. The doctor thinks Adams situation is causing Ashley undue stress. The bond with Adam should be ended so she can start depending on Victor more. Victor thinks Adam has been good for her. The doctor says yes but she needs to forget about Adam’s problems and focus on her own health and the baby’s. He says since sending Adam back to prison isn’t an option how about sending him to a facility for the blind where he would be able to gain confidence and independence. Victor says he would have to get a court order for that. The doctor asks that Victor doesn’t mention to Adam that he was the one to suggest this. Victor agrees to consider this. Then we see Adam going into the potting shed only to find it empty except for the purple dress.

Jack gets a call while he is at the club. It is Mary Jane while pouring Kitty a saucer of milk. She tells him she is back and she would love to see him. Jack tells her he would love to see her too so she says she will be waiting for him at Crimson Lights.

The doctor tells Devon and Lily that she isn’t pregnant but it was a false positive. He has to do some more tests to see what is causing the cramps. He tells her that he aunt is on the way to explain. He tells her he can’t tell her now. Lily is worried now and asks why the doctor called her Aunt Olivia. She wants to know what is going on.

Just as Cane is about to walk out he door, Jill calls out his name and then all hell breaks loose when Phillip Jr. walks in still dressed in his fatigues as he has just arrived home from Iraq. Nina is excited as she hugs her son telling him she is so happy to see him. While they are all excited to see him no one notices Cane slipping out the door.
