At Crimson Lights, Billy tells Victoria she missed a doozy of a party last night with the exception of Sally Spectra, who wasn’t afraid to take on the big dogs. Victoria asks what she did now. Billy fills her in on the spectacle. Victoria doesn’t care. She spent quality time with their children. He asks how her beau is and she shrugs. Why does he care? He’s still going forth with the article about his history. He tells her they’ll be fair and unbiased. He thinks that she can tell Ash is hiding something big. She tells him to stay out of his life, their lives. When she goes, he calls out asking her where the money came from that Ashland used to buy the TV stations. Outside, Devon and Nick discuss Dominic’s birth and Devon looks uneasy as Nick thinks he looked like a hero. Nick appears as Victoria stomps out and asks Billy what’s going on. Billy shares what they discussed and they argue about what Ashland is hiding. Nick says he’s got nothing except a desire to find something damning about Ashland. Billy says this is about protecting his kids. He says Victoria can take on Ashland as long as she knows what she’s up against.
Adam stops by the park after seeing Sally bent over tying her shoe. She says good morning and grins at him. He looks awkward and tells her to relax. She hopes there’s no meme of her drenched going viral. Adam shares that the night was a success, even if everyone got a little drama. Adam says they’re good. “So…dinner then?” Sally asks as Chloe eavesdrops. Adam tells her she missed the party last night. They fill her in on last night’s events with her throwing a drink in Phyllis’ face and getting a bucket of ice water over her head for it. Chloe blames Adam for not ensuring it didn’t happen. Adam isn’t surprised she’s once again blaming him. He takes off on his run. Chloe asks what else happened and Sally denies anything. Chloe saw photos of her on his arm. How far did things go? Sally admits it was an impulsive kiss. She initiated and Adam hit the brakes. He told her he was toxic. Chloe asks if that gave her pause. Sally thinks it’s a sign of growth. “Like a fungus or a wart?” Chloe doesn’t get that her friend has such good taste in clothes but to men.” Chloe knows she can’t stop her from pursuing things but warns that his son thinks his parents are still together. Whatever connection she thinks she has will get messier before it gets easier. Sally nods.
