He missed her last night. They kiss and he talks about missing her stealing the covers and snoring.

He reveals they finally landed on a way to take down Tucker. She’s glad for him.

They talk about how excited he is, there’s a lot of action.

“No risk, no reward,” he says, causing Chelsea to stare.

He asks what he said and she thinks he’s jonesing for a payoff, like he’s betting on a game of poker.

He says this isn’t gambling but she thinks so and worries he’ll fall into trouble and not know it.

He doesn’t think she knows what she means but she’s had a business.

He talks about it more and hears it himself in his voice.

She hopes he doesn’t resent her for saying something. He’s glad she said something.

She is supposed to call him accountable. She knows it’s the dopamine hit.

billy realizes he's acting like a gambler

He agrees and talks about how he told Jack what a superior read at gambling.

He didn’t realize how much he craved it. “Truth is, you saw it and I didn’t.”

She calls herself a buzz kill but he’s glad for it.

He reveals he’s a step away from finding a game and thanks her.

She fishes for what he wants for Christmas.

He just wants her. They kiss.

At the Abbott mansion, Jack’s glad to see Ashley since they’re not sparring anymore.

She’s considering Jack’s request because she wants to hold on to her company.

He thinks it’s the ticket to getting Tucker out of their lives.

It’s what they want, right? She heaves a big sigh and says she’ll always be connected to him because of Dominic but that’s it.

He says this is only about Glacade. He’ll buy her half of the company.

She thinks they’ll have more money than him since she’ll raise the price.

Jack says that he’ll try to destabilize them and take over. She knows. He says they’ll use his plan against him.

Once his cover-up story is out, the board of directors will kick him out.

Ashley admits being in the same area code as Tucker is unpleasant.

Jack knows and is sorry. He knows she doesn’t need him saving her but he needs to go.

Tucker arrives at Audra’s room at the Athletic Club.

He yells hello to her and she asks what he’s doing.

He’s trying to get Kyle ample time to get out. tucker makes a joke to audra on Y&R She wants to know he’s trustworthy from the sanctum of Jabot. She says yes and he yells, “What are they? What have you learned?”

She’s only laying the groundwork. Building trust.

Tucker thinks he’s screwing them over. Audra’s doing her best but he’s seen her best and this ain’t it.

He moves behind her and wants to touch her but backs off. He tells her she knows how much he respects and admires her intelligence.

She laughs and he joins the laughter. She finds it funny that he wants her for her mind.

She’s unsure how to feel about it. He calls her gray matter smokin’ hot. She invites him to continue talking.

They sit down and he says he knows her better than she knows Kyle and he’s taken her places.

They’ve gone places where Kyle has never conceived.

He’s not threatened by Kyle he says when she asks.

She wants to know what happens when this plan moves along and he calls her irresistible and knows her.

She loves the thrill, the electricity. He does. He breathes heavily and tells her he’s feeling it.

He looks aroused but when Ashley texts to meet, he tells Audra he thinks his ex has made her mind up.

Diane and Kyle have pancakes at the Athletic Club lounge.

She’s excited about their plan and Jill’s alliance, which is an alliance to intimidate friend and foe.

Diane drinks tea and thinks of sticking it to Tucker. She thinks Jack will be proud of Kyle sticking it to him.

Kyle says so far he only wants him to keep his eyes open.

Kyle thinks he’s buying it but doesn’t believe the man trusts anyone. Diane says he loves when people seek his advice.

“Let him see how devoted you are to him.” Diane thinks he’ll loop Kyle in so they can find out his plans for Glacade. Kyle loves this. He sips the tea.

Kye’s having reservations.

Diane knows but it’s the right thing.

They think Jack will dissolve Glacade into Jabot.

Nate drops in at Society and wanders by a pink Christmas tree to see Jill and Devon.

They ask for him to join them and Jill says she’s been accused of exaggerating but not this time.

They’re in grave danger. Chancellor Winters is facing a threat.

Talk turns to the wildfire. Mattie losing one of her teachers. Her mentor.

They’re all saddened to hear. Nate’s glad Lily’s there. Jill says she’ll stay there with Mattie for a while.

She asked for a short leave of absence. Jill worries about the timing since Tucker’s a wild card.

Mamie appears out of nowhere and tells them that the snake, Tucker, is after them.

This is no time for talking! “It’s all hands on deck.”

She sits and thinks her invitation got lost in the ethers.

It’s fortuitous she found them together. Jill’s sorry but Mamie wasn’t invited. Mamie snarks.

“Good old Jill.” Jill says Mamie already knows what she was going to tell the guys.

Mamie comments on Jill’s poor memory.

They were going to do this together.

Jill thinks she should call in suggestions while she’s sitting on some lovely island somewhere.

Mamie calls the view pleasant there and leans toward Jill. “There are some exceptions.” Jill rolls her eyes.

Devon asks Jill to stop fighting. Mamie and Jill find it fun but Jill reminds Mamie she has no say in anything in the company.

Mamie thinks she’s being intimidated. Jill says no but does want her to zip it. They go over how much they’re glad Nate’s back.

mamie can fight with the best of them.

The men decide to head to the office and Devon worries the women will use that to fight. They reassure him and the guys go.

Mamie tells Jill they need their support. She thought they were together on this idea about Tucker.

JIll says no. She bites that Mamie doesn’t have the skills to help them in this enterprise.

Has she run a company or gone up against an enemy? Mamie calls McCall a piece of cake next to the likes of Jill.

Is Ashley in on the plan? She hopes so.

At the table, Tucker thinks Ashley looks lean and hungry. She tells him she’ll sell Glacade to him.

“No caveats, conditions or strings?” He asks. She says no. He’s suspicious and she says just to make a deal.

He knows she’s angling but he can’t figure out what it is. She says there isn’t one. Except it won’t be cheap.

“I’m gonna make you pay. I’ll be in touch,” she says, leaving and saying hello to Audra on her way out.
