Adam goes to Nicks but Phyllis tells him Nick isn’t there. He says he came to talk to her. He knows that the more riled up Nick gets the more chances are that he will run to Sharon’s rescue. She accuses Adam of wanted her to convince Nick that he is harmless so Nick will back off. Adam says he and Sharon are only friends and Nick needs to accept that. She thinks that is a really stinky fish even for Adam. She tells him if he wants to convince Nick of something he will have to do so himself.

Daniel and Amber realize that Jimmy’s is closed and they are locked in with no way to leave without triggering off the alarm sp decide who cares about leaving as they dance together.

The doorbell rings and Chloe answers the door while only wearing her robe. When she sees Billy standing there neither say a word. It is clear that Billy is drunk as he leans over and kisses her just as Chance happens to pass by. Chance looks like his heart is broken.

Victor and Nikki talk about all the happy times they spent in the stables. She asks him why this is sounding like a good bye from him. He says he has given the ranch to Ashley but Nikki says the horses are still his. Nikki asks what he is thinking about. He tells her he is just at peace, that is all. He says this trip to Belgium would have been very lonely if she wouldn’t be going too. He says they will share this adventure together. She says she will crack the whip lovingly of course. They agree that one thing is for sure. They can’t live without each other as they kiss. She tells him isn’t it lucky for them that they don’t want to.

Chance turns and walks away and misses what Chloe does. She pulls away saying she knows Billy is alone right now but she can’t be his consolation prize. She says they will always be friends but she can’t do this. She asks him to just please go. He says OK and leaves after telling her he is sorry.

Phyllis shows Adam to the door telling him she thought he was brighter than trying to get her on his side. He tells her he is sorry he wasted her time. When she gets him out the door she tells him she will be sure to tell Nick he stopped by and the next time he decides to come by, to call first.

Sharon tells Nick he is reading more into this relationship with Adam than there is. He says oh but it is a relationship? He says he bets Adam didn’t tell her he was gay. Sharon tells him Adam told her all about that. Nick thinks Adam has her under his spell. She says that is it, she has had enough. She tells Nick she can take care of herself, thank you very much. Nick says he hopes Adam doesn’t hurt her but if he does he will be there for her and for her not to forget it.

Victoria catches JT at the airport just as he is about to board the plane. She has a bag over her shoulder and carrying Reed. She tells him how sorry she is about everything. JT says thank God. He takes Reed from her and says they will have a great time in New York.

While still out at the stables Nikki tells Victor she got him a gift that he can take with them to Belgium to the estate that they rented for them over there. She opens the box and Victor sees a puppy that looks just like Zapato. She says she made a donation in Zapato’s name to lab research and then rescued this one from the puppy mill. She says he has a second chance just like Victor does and like they do together. She says all he has to do is decide on a name now. They think about the name ‘Segundo’ which means second chance or ‘Corazon’ which means heart. Victor says it was such a thoughtful gift as they both say they love each other with all their hearts.
