Cloe and Cane argue over new rules he makes for them. Cloe hands him a fax proving that she legally changed her name before coming to Genoa City so she didn’t lie about her name. He tells her unless it concerns the baby he doesn’t want her to talk to him. She doesn’t want to live like that. He tells her to suit herself. She says to herself, fine but he won’t like it.

Michael tells Victor he just knew he was alive. He tells him they will rescind the death certificate. Michael tells Victor about Adam firing Neil Winters and that he appointed Brad as CEO. He says the moment that Victor was reported missing Adam was business only while Nick and Victoria conducted the searches. He says and one more thing is that now he is insisting on being called Victor Newman. Victor tells him that will no longer be the case.

Victoria and Nick go to the ranch but Michael tells them he is not ready to see them yet. They ask Adam how come he didn’t call them instead of it being Estelle that called to tell them the news. Neil shows up and Michael brings him into the study to see Victor and leaves the kids there shocked.

Heather takes off just as Neil come out saying Victor wants to see Adam. Neil says he has to get to the office. Victoria says she likes the sound of that. Adam goes into the study and tells Victor it is good to see he is alive. Victor asks him if he got his letter and Adam says yes he did. Adam starts defending himself saying that he lost both of his parents and a friend in a short period of time. He says if he made mistakes it is because he was overcome with grief and he was only doing what he thought he would want him to do. Victor asks him what made him think he wanted him to fire Neil Winters.

Nick and Victoria are getting inpatient while waiting for their father to see them. Michael tells Victoria and Nick that Victor has a plan and he plans to right the wrongs of the last few weeks.

Lily shows up at Cane’s house and she tells him he is going to be an incredible father no matter how messed up things are with Cloe. She tells him he is a good baby. He says it should have been their baby and Lily agrees. Lily doesn’t blame Cane but she blames that manipulative bitch.

Jill tells Katherine how she is worried about Cane. She says this has been like watching him walk off a cliff. Katherine tells her that Cane doesn’t need his Mommy to fix things for him. Jill admits she told Cane she was going to offer Cloe money and Katherine throws a fit. Jill says Cloe loves Canes money.

The doorbell rings and it is Cloe. Esther asks her what she is doing there. She tells Jill that he son is being mean to her. Jill says she hopes she isn’t suggesting that she moves in there. Cloe says the stress isn’t good for the baby so she thinks she needs to be with her mother and her mother in law. She asks them who is showing her to her room.

Victor tells Adam he can tells a lot about a man by what he does when no one is watching him. He tells him what he did to Neil, Victoria and Nick and even to Zapato says a lot about his character. He tells Adam not only does he want him out of Newman he also wants him out of his house immediately. Adam begs him not to do this. Victor tells him it is already done.

When Adam comes out the study he just storms out and Nick and Victoria figure that didn’t go to well. Michael comes out and tells them that they are up. They walk into the study and Victor turns around in his chair when they come in.
