He tells her that it’s funny because Adam says the same thing to him about her. She says she has stuck by Adam because he is worth it. She says he won’t commit to a future because he doesn’t want to let her down. Rafe thinks Adam needs to make peace with himself and be the man that he is and let that be enough. He knows that is easier said than done though. When Adam comes in her looks worried when he sees the two of them there at the same time.

Rafe is uncomfortable watching Heather kissing Adam. Adam tells him that Noah went o the hospital so he isn’t there.

He tells her that their daughter almost died, and it hits home that Nick could have made a mistake that he’d never have forgiven himself for. He tells her he will be there for Summer and her. He promises that that is all that matters. Then he notices Sharon coming in with Jack.

Jack asks if it is a bad time for them to come in. Phyllis tells him no, in fact she needs to talk to him. She tells Nick she won’t hold him to what he said as she leaves him with Sharon. Nick tells Sharon he meant every word he ever said to her. She said she knows he loves her. She also knows he can’t abandon his family or he would never forgive himself. He said it is because he can’t do that again after he did it to her when Cassie died. She tells him she is proud of how strong he is now. She hugs him and tells him she loves him, she will always love him.

Victor has an assignment for the Bardwell’s. He asks if they need money. He says he is not responsible for them losing their money but he has a lucrative offer that will give Jack Abbott the shaft. He says Colleen Carter is becoming a nuisance to him. He tells them their job would be to have Colleen discredit herself without any harm coming to her. Gloria accepts the challenge even though Jeffery doesn’t like it. Victor says he always knew Gloria was the sensible one. He makes a call to JT and asks if he has tracked down his wallet yet, and wants him to stop his investigation of Colleen. He says he is taking a step back and see how things work out.

Rafe joins Colleen at Crimson Lights and tells her it is good having her back. She talks about all the people trying to ruin her life and doesn’t know that Gloria and Jeffery are eavesdropping. She says with her Dad gone she feels so empty, her own sister is annoyed with her and her best friend got married, Rafe says he can relate to that but he will need something stronger to spill his guts. She asks how about them going to Jimmy’s. He agrees so she says cool and they leave. Gloria figures out that Colleen is lonely, saying that will work for them. She says she doesn’t feel bad about going after John’s granddaughter, saying they are doing her a favor by getting her away from Victor.

Victor doesn’t get a response when he knocks on the master bedroom door. He asks that she kindly opens the door saying he misses her. When he starts to walks away Ashley opens the door and just pokes her head out.

She tells him the evidence was the fact that she was hovering at the hospital, she checked out of the club in a hurry, and she had a photo of Summer hid under her sofa. Jack admits Mary Jane did seem a bit strange the last time he saw her.

Phyllis starts crying telling him Mary Jane did this to her daughter. She asks where that woman came from. She wonders why she is doing this to them. Jack has no answers for her.

Gloria goes to the bartender offering him an acting gig that is really a harmless practical joke. She says they made a bet with regards to a very prim and very proper young lady. She says a friend bet her that this young lady would never do anything unladylike but with coaxing from a handsome young man they could make a lot of money out of it. Jeffery tells the guy when he starts to walk away from the offer to look at Gloria’s ring. She shows him her ring and says if could be his if he can get this woman to cut loose a bit. She needs something tabloid worthy on camera. When he looks at the ring he takes the challenge from Gloria.

Rafe admits he broke the first rule and fell for a guy that is still in the closet. He says the guy is going through a rough time. He tells Colleen the guy looks at him with helpless puppy dog eyes and that makes him forget all about the alarm bells that keep going off. Colleen asks if Mr. Puppy Dog Eyes has a name.

When Adam hears Victor come home he has to eavesdrop. Ashley explains to Victor that she was soaking in the tub when he knocked on her door earlier. Victor is happy to hear that she was relaxing.

Gloria says she missing her ring already even though she hasn’t given it to the guy yet. Jeffery promises to buy her a new one once Victor pays them. They wonder what if Aidan isn’t Colleen’s type. Gloria says he is everyone woman’s type. She says besides it has been a long dry spell for Colleen. She thinks that Victor will be very happy.
