At the bar in the GCAC, Tucker spots Jack and asks him for a minute. The Abbott is reluctant.

He loves this club but not running into him. He wonders why he’s not in Paris.

Tucker explains that the internet happened and you can do business anywhere.

Jack thinks he’s afraid of seeing his employees face to face and Tucker suggests he might move Glissade there.

Jack assumes that’s a joke.

Tucker actually wants to talk about Ashley and explains she sought him out.

Jack defends his sister and insists they will have no future.

McCall agrees, but he’s worried about her. She’s falling apart.

tucker says something wrong with ashley

This offends Jack but Tucker says he doesn’t know what to make of her. There’s something he doesn’t recognize.

She’ll have sudden changes in personality and that has him worried.

Jack refuses to believe this is true but McCall can’t imagine he’s oblivious enough not to notice this has been happening.

jack gets defensive with tucker

She needs help now. Jack repeats that his sister is done with him and told him so this morning.

Tucker explains she told him this morning that she wants him back.

That disturbs Jack. He says he’s worried his sister will be sucked back into his life.

McCall repeats that she needs help and he hopes Jack can step in because he can’t.

tucker can't help

The Abbott tells him to stay away from her and leave her to her family.

Kyle and Claire meet at Society. She’s sure he’s heard all about what she did and the facts don’t lie.

kyle probing claire

They joke about it but he still wants to hear her side.

Claire explains that her whole life was controlled by her deranged aunt.

It’s hard to explain why she trusted her completely and believed all she said.

claire telling kyle about jordan

He can’t understand how anyone could do that to a child. Claire says she was just a hateful, vindictive person.

She hates herself for what she’s put her family through. It’s incredible that they have forgiven and welcomed her.

claire tells kyle her story

Now she has a second chance to build a life for herself. Is this too far-fetched to believe?

Victoria joins them, happy to see her daughter talking to someone closer to her age.

He assures Claire he’s not running from her, just giving them privacy.

Once he’s gone, Claire guesses Jordan escaped again. He assumes Nikki knows and this makes Victoria panic.

She worries that they caused this by confronting Jordan.

At Newman, Victor admits to Nick that Jordan escaped again.

“How does this keep happening?” complains Nick. There were cops and security right at her door.

They had her trapped in a basement to rot. Victor regrets letting the ladies go to see her.

Nikki mopes in to say she feels terrible.

Now Jordan is free to hunt them again and it’s her fault.

Her son tells her not to blame herself. Her husband isn’t thrilled she’s there rather than with all the security.

He asks if she stopped anywhere. Nikki admits she’s desperate for a drink.

They offer to distract her. She says she will just have to find ways to cope and is heading to a meeting.

nikki trying to cope

Victor texts Larry the security guard to come and get her.

When his parents leave Nick alone in the office, Sally shows up.

He warns that Victor is not in headspace to talk business now.

She’s not and tells him that Adam and Chelsea are flying off with Connor to put him in a residential facility.

Adam asked her to fill him and Victor in about this.

She hopes they will both support him. He’s really struggling.

sally fills nick in

Nick can feel for what his brother is going through and will remind him he’s there.

She assumes there is still tension between them because of her.

Nick says they are doing pretty well. She’s happy to hear that. It’s nice.

Before she can, Nick says his dad shouldn’t hear about Connor from her. Getting it third hand would be bad.

nick asks sally to let him handle it

Nick offers to handle it.

Nick finds his brother at Crimson Lights and tells him that Sally has filled him in.

None of this is feeling great to Adam.

Nick has set up the jet for them to take.

Adam is just pushing through.

Connor is terrified and mad but agreed to give it a shot.

This has been rough on Adam and Chelsea.

He’s worried about how hard she’s been on herself. She could spin out.

Nick urges him not to go there and asks if Billy is stepping up for her.

Adam isn’t thrilled to have him around but Nick says it’s all hands on deck and he’s in his corner too.

Nick adds that he told Sally not to fill Victor in.

He urges him to talk to their father before he leaves.

Reluctantly, Adam agrees and thanks him.
