Once he climbs out and is given a towel, Cody apologizes to Britt. He was told the pool would be clear and wonders how Dante ended up there. He’s surprised to learn he’s a cop.

Dante cuffs him, much to Britt’s delight. Sam does not look amused by any of this. The cop explains it was reckless endangerment but Cody insists he was hired to do it. Spinelli says it was a brilliant marketing idea.

The doctor still wants him arrested. Brad says he should be let off with a warning or a spanking. Dante and Sam lead his friend away.

Spinelli gets Britt coffee and tells her that they will one day look back on this and have fond memories. Brad certainly will. “He’s all mine,” Britt warns him. She vents about the cynical attempt to sell romance and wants to sue him.

Joss plays with Wiley in the park. She gets a text from Cam assuring her he will set Spencer straight. She and the kid chat and then she suggests they take a trip.

At the court house, Michael asks his mother what she has in her hands. It’s the DNA test results confirming Nina is Willow’s mother. She looks at them and sighs before claiming it’s nothing.

Drew leads him away to talk about ELQ in the hall. He worries that his vendetta against his father could get in the way of their business merger. Michael vents about what Nina did to his family and Sonny siding with her.

Drew can understand why he is furious, but he’s had this campaign against Sonny long before this hearing. Michael admits he doesn’t know who Sonny is now and is furious with himself for seeing him as anything other than a criminal.

Drew doesn’t want ELQ used to go against Sonny. That’s not only for the sake of the company, but for Michael’s sake too. Michael is sick of them all propping Sonny up and he’s determined to out-maneuver him. He can do that without hurting ELQ.

Carly tells Willow she’s never seen her as angry as she was today. Willow rants about Nina and why she will never let her near Wiley again. She’s done with her.

Carly couldn’t agree more and shoves the DNA results in her purse. When Michael and Drew return, Joss brings Wiley in and he runs to his parents. She learns they won the case. Joss is thrilled.

Phyllis tells him how much simpler things were in Nixon Falls. No lawyers. He fills her in on how bad the day in court was.

She wonders if he would make a different choice if he could go back and do everything again.

He wouldn’t. He’s been true to what he believes and thinks Wiley deserves to be put first and have more love. It’s wrong to cut a loving grandmother out of his life. Sonny just wants him to grow up to be his own man.

She’s sure his heart is in the right place. Scott calls her, looking for Nina. When she gets off the line, she tells Sonny that Nina lost.

Sonny wants to go looking for her. Phyllis suggests she needs some time alone. “I need to be with her,” he insists, taking off.

Nikolas tells his wife that the noise must have been bats. Ava apologizes for threatening to walk out on him. He flashes back to sex with Esme and then says he thought she’d given up on their relationship.

Ava almost had until she learned he asked Laura to send a letter to the private school she wants to get Avery into. That reminded her of how thoughtful he could be. They have real issue to work through but she’s never been a quitter.

The prince is still flustered and wishes he’d told her this before. He says they still have issues but can’t discuss them there.

After he leads his wife out out, Esme strolls in and says that Ava will regret this and so will he.
