nick tells victor onto him

Nick wants to know what’s going on.

Claiming he’s figured it all out, he shows his father the snake drawing.

He says he knows exactly what it means, explaining Adam found it but has no idea what it means.

Nick explains it’s from a story his father used to read him as a child.

He’s sure it was a cry for help and his father wanted him to find it.

Nikki tells her husband to tell their son the truth and end this.

nikki listening to nick

Victor smirks. Nick is confused. Nikki demands her husband speak up.

Nick wonders if this has all been an act.

Why would he let them be so worried and afraid?

nick is not happy with dad

His father explains he needed to find out who could be trusted.

This infuriates Nick. He and his mom complain he is being cruel to Victoria.

Victor has faith in him. Nick doesn’t want to be his ally after he’s stressed him out like this.

victor trusts nick

Nick defends his sister and says she needs to know the truth.

His father says it’s too soon and he needs to know who he can trust.

nick objects to his father's plan

Victor says Adam is not the only threat. Nate is too.

Nick says his sister will never forgive him if she finds out about this on her own.

Christine and Danny are startled to run into each other on the patio of the coffee house.

christine and danny hug on patio

After a hug, they sit and she says it’s good to see him. He asks how Paul is.

She shakes her head and says, “Not good.”

They get her some coffee and he tries to get her to open up about her trip.

She’d rather hear about his rockstar adventures.

christine tells danny about paul

He’s spending some time with his son. “And with Phyllis?” she asks.

He says she comes with the package and seems sincere about wanting to change.

She points out she’s been saying that for twenty years.

The lawyer tells him that Phyllis only pretends that she was exonerated when she was guilty.

Danny knows it’s hard to give his ex a break after all the harm she’s caused.

Maybe this is the one time to try?

danny asks christine about trip

She can’t believe the redhead has him brainwashed.

She doesn’t want to discuss this.

Danny suggests they talk her trip.

Christine would rather talk about Daniel.

He reminds “Cricket” that he’s good at listening and prods her to open up about Lisbon.

christine tells danny about lisbon

She explains that she and Paul hadn’t seen each other in months.

They’d been having some problems.

She didn’t think they were huge but they were magnified after he retired.

Christine thought they would separate and figure things out.

At the end of Phyllis’ case, he asked her to Lisbon and she assumed that was positive.

At first, it seemed like he wanted to work things out.

Things were fun and it felt like the good old days for a minute.

That didn’t last and they had to face things, really talk about them rather than gloss them over.

They tried to figure out if there was any hope for their marriage. Sobbing, she says there isn’t.

christine talks about paul and cries

They went on a trip to get to know each other again and revisit places that made them happy.

They wanted to figure out what went wrong after a couple of trips down the aisle… but it backfired.

All the romantic memories made it obvious but much distance there was between them.

They just don’t work together anymore.

It wasn’t about them growing apart.

Paul just isn’t in love with her anymore.

christine and danny hold hands

Danny is sorry. He loves her and Paul and hates to see her like this.

They hold hands and she says she has no doubt that it’s over.

That almost brings her a sense of peace.

Now she’ll have to figure out what’s next.
