Jack is sure he is just trying to stir up trouble.

He asks her to join him and Diane at the club.

She needs to catch up on some reading.

Once he takes off, she flashes back to their last argument with their sister.

Ashley pops up and hopes the concerned look on her face has nothing to do with her.

ashley thinks tucker lying

She insists she’s over Tucker and doesn’t need any hovering.

Traci says he’s concerned about her and thinks her behavior has been erratic.

Ashley tells her not to believe his garbage. Her sister notes she’s been a bit “moody.”

This makes Ashley irate. She likes the idea of making Tucker think she’s crazy.

ashley and traci talk tucker suggestions

This worries her sister but Ashley insists she has a plan and it is all going as intended.

That makes Traci even more worried. Cocky Ashley says she has Tucker just where she wants him.

He thinks she’s fragile and vulnerable and that makes him vulnerable.

Then she can take away his heart and his empire and leave him bankrupt.

Traci isn’t sure about any of this but her sister is sure it will work and storms out.

Tucker corners Audra at the jazz club. He tells her that she is right to be angry at him over Ashley.

audra gives tucker two minutes Y&R

Whether she is having a breakdown or not is not his concern.

Audra is. She’s everything.

She wonders if he’s just telling her what she wants to hear.

He repeats she’s all he wants and he told Jack to look after his sister.

tucker tells audra she was right

He’s not going to play hero to her.

The only person he’d want to play hero to is Audra.

She doesn’t need saving.

Tucker blurts out that he is desperate not to lose her.

audra thinks this is a line

He’s been a fool not to make her the priority he should have.

He won’t blame her if she walks away.

Tearing up, he tells her he’s so lucky to have her in his life.

She’s his best friend and he’s sorry.

tucker cries to audra

She asks him to look into her eyes.

He does and tells her he loves her.

They touch hands and kiss. She loves him too.

Up in the dining room, Jack vents to Diane about what Tucker told him.

He admits that his sister has been acting out of character… but he believes her when she claims nothing is wrong.

jack vents to diane

They talk about the tension with Kyle and the resentment he has.

She worries that he won’t be able to work through that and won’t sacrifice her relationship with him just for a job.

Diane suggests they reverse roles.

That sounds drastic to Jack.

diane and jack have cocktails

Switching jobs wouldn’t solve the problem.

He refuses to consider it and thinks she’s where she deserves to be.

When Audra and Tucker get to his suite, they find Ashley waiting for them.

He threatens to have her arrested.

She says they have business and he tells her to go.

As she goes, she says she’s doing this for them.

“There is no us,” he says, insisting he is out.

The Abbott asks to speak to him privately.

Audra tells her to have some self respect and stop throwing herself at Tucker over and over again.

Ashley asks him to out a muzzle on her and McCall has to hold Audra back from taking the Abbott to fist city.

He tells Ashley to go.

Once she does, Tucker asks Audra if she believes him now.

In the hallway, Ashley stumbles and gets disoriented, unsure of what’s going on.

ashley wonders what's happening to her

“What am I doing here? What’s happening to me?” she wonders.

As she goes down the stairs, she avoids Jack and Diane and keeps wondering what’s happening.

At the ranch, Victor is yelling into his phone about how outrageous it is that Jordan has escaped again.

Adam wanders in and wonders how it’s even possible that woman is still a threat.

“I’m going to find her. Put an end to her,” growls Victor.

victor determined to get jordan

Adam explains that he is heading to the east coast with Chelsea and Connor.

His son has OCD and they are doing all they can to get him through it.

Victor didn’t know kids got that. Adam explains there is no cure but there is treatment.

Chelsea has found the best place for it and Victor says he will give them anything they need.

adam fills his father in

That means a lot to Adam. Victor knows what it’s like to have a suffering child.

It breaks his heart to hear about all of this but urges him to trust himself and keep doing what he has been.

Adam worries that this could be his fault.

He’s always a screw-up and hasn’t given his son a stable childhood.

His father tells him he had a son he couldn’t be around but he’s proud of the man that boy has become.

victor hears claire gone

Victoria rushes in, looking for her daughter.

She asks her dad to call security.

Adam says he could barely get through security.

His sister says that’s just because they don’t like him.

victoria worries abotu claire

When Victor leaves the siblings alone, Adam apologizes to Victoria for not accepting Claire the way he’s expected everyone to accept him.

This doesn’t sound like him to her.

He explains that Connor has OCD.

They are all scared and she’s sorry for all they are going through. She thinks it’s smart to be proactive.

Victor returns and explains that security says Claire went out for coffee.
