Estella's Arraigned

Victor calls Victoria and asks her to come over. Ashley comes into the room and Victor advises her not to go to the courthouse today where Estella's arraignment is being held because it might upset her. Victor remarks that he doesn't think the case is airtight against her. Adam walks through the front door and when asked where he was, he tells his father he needed some fresh air. He admits he didn't sleep much last night and Victor assures him he isn't alone - he's going to keep looking for a way for Adam to get his sight back. Adam goes upstairs. Victor remembers when he found out Hope was pregnant and how she was afraid she could pass on her condition to her baby. Victor says he feels like he failed both Hope and Adam and he doesn't blame Adam for being angry.

At the coffeehouse, Nikki tells J.T. she thinks Estella was framed by Adam. J.T. wonders if there is any evidence to back this up and Nikki admits there isn't anything solid yet. Victoria comes over and they continue to debate on whether or not Adam could be scaring Ashley. Victoria tells them they might as well all go spit on Sabrina's grave! She leaves to get more coffee and J.T. explains to Nikki that Victoria has been upset about Sabrina lately.

At the coffeehouse, Noah sees Rafe and asks him how he can become an emancipated minor! Rafe tells him he has to be able to support himself and he also has to have a place to live. Rafe tells Noah to come by his office later because he's due in court for Estella's arraignment. Noah receives a call from Nick, requesting Noah meet him and Sharon at the Club. Nick tells Noah they have important news to tell him. Noah agrees to meet them at the Club.

Sharon and Nick sit in the dining room at the Club and Nick talks about how their lives are coming together - they've found a house and soon they will have the paternity results. Noah arrives and they tell him they've found a house to buy - they can all live together as a family again. Noah says the house sounds nice, but he isn't going to move in - he doesn't want to live with them! Noah says he doesn't want Summer to go through what he went through with visitations. Noah tells them that they'll probably screw up the baby as well! He goes on to say he's going to file for emancipation. Sharon points out that they haven't abused or neglected them and thinks Noah's over-reacting. She says family therapy would be a better choice. Nick wants to know if Noah has filed yet and Noah admits he hasn't, but he's talked to a lawyer. Nick accuses Noah of wanting to file for emancipation in order to live with Eden. Noah tells them it isn't about Eden - they just don't understand. Nick says Noah shouldn't be in such a rush to grow up, but Noah says he isn't going to continue talking with them if they are only going to make fun of him.

In her room at the Club, Mary Jane talks to her kitty about how she is going to live happily with Jack, but sometimes men just need a little nudging! Jack comes in and wants to know what the important business is? Mary Jane strips and asks what's more important than keeping the CEO of the company happy? They kiss and head for the bed to make love. After making love, Mary Jane imagines she tells Jack she's falling for him and he reciprocates the sentiment. In reality, Jack's phone ring and Mary Jane asks if it's Phyllis? Jack is confused by her question. Mary Jane tries to make love to him again, but Jack stops her. He reiterates that their relationship is only about sex and he doesn't want to see her get hurt. Mary Jane says she has no intention of getting hurt. She tells Jack she'll see him later and shows him out. She tells kitty that it's happening, but she needs to take it slow.

Heather comes to Adam's room and wonders if everything is okay - he sounded very upset on the phone. Adam apologizes for how he acted yesterday. He tells Heather that thanks to Victor leaving him in prison - where he was stuck in the eyes with needles - he is no longer a candidate for a trial for his eye disease. Adam blames all of his troubles on Victor. Heather tells him they will have a life together in the future, but Adam says he's useless now. Heather assures Adam he is intelligent, caring, and that she loves him. They kiss passionately and make love. Adam tells her she's the only person he trusts now.

J.T. and Victoria arrive at the Ranch. Victoria tells Victor it was very difficult for her to learn that he had Sabrina's statue removed and to see him take her portrait down. Victor admits it was hard for him, too. He wants Victoria to help him rebuild his art collection and Victoria is moved. She says that this action shows her that her father understands and that she's going to make Sabrina very proud. When Victoria leaves, J.T. thanks Victor for doing that - it means a lot to Victoria and made her happy. He tells Victor Nikki believes Estella was framed. Victor wonders who else could have set up Estella. Victor wonders about Mary Jane. They discover Mary Jane has been at the Ranch quite often! Victor says he'll take it from here. J.T. leaves. Adam listens as Victor calls Mary Jane and arranges to meet with her outside his home.

At the courthouse, Estella is upset and Nikki tries to reassure her. They are both surprised when Ashley appears and says Estella will be brought to justice! Estella goes into the courtroom and Nikki tells Ashley Estella was framed - most likely by Adam! Ashley says Adam has been there for her and her baby many times and couldn't have framed Estella. Rafe appears and tells Ashley the charges against Estella will be thrown out, but it won't undo the emotional stress that she and Victor have put Estella through. Rafe goes into the courtroom and is able to get Estella out of prison on bail. Before she leaves, Ashley tells Estella she might be free for now, but it won't last. Ashley demands to know why Heather didn't oppose bail and Heather tells her Estella has no prior record, is not a flight risk, and the evidence is circumstantial. Nikki tells Ashley an innocent woman is being punished because she and Victor cannot see who is really trying to hurt her.

Jack walks into the Club dining room in time to hear Noah tell his parents they are too screwed up to handle their own lives, let alone his. Jack comes over and says it's a big deal to become an emancipated minor and asks to speak with Noah alone. He tells Noah his parents love him. Noah says they ruined so many people's lives, including Jack's. Jack denies this, but Noah doesn't believe it. Jack encourages Noah to wait a few weeks to make a final decision on becoming emancipated. Noah agrees and leaves. As Jack walks back over to Sharon and Nick, Sharon get s call notifying her that the paternity results are in. Jack says he knows Sharon hopes Nick is the father and he hopes she gets her wish.

At the coffeehouse, Victoria expresses her excitement about rebuilding her father's collection. J.T. sets some ground rules - no more meeting with strange guys in dark alleys! Victoria decides which piece she will acquire first and makes a call about it. The same man who threw the glass when he found out Daniel was out on bail takes the call!

Victor meets with Mary Jane. He says she's crossed boundaries before and now she's doing it again - getting involved with his family, wandering on his property, and stabbing him in the back - does she think she's going to get away with it?! Victor asks her several questions, including if she recognizes the spot - where Sabrina's statue was. She doesn't understand what he's talking about. He tells her the statue was mutilated and she denies having anything to do with it. Victor tells her to keep focused on Jack Abbott alone.

Nikki talks to Rafe after court. She says she suspects Adam of framing Estella. She tells him about how Adam has lied to her and how Sabrina's voice was coming out of his computer. Rafe is definitely interested.

Noah Wants to Divorce His Parents

Ashley arrives at Restless Style looking for Abby. Abby's there doing a photo shoot today. Abby appears and her mother tells her she looks beautiful. They hug. Abby expresses concern about all of the stress Ashley has been under. Ashley assures her it's over now - Estella has been arrested. Abby says she still cannot believe Estella did all of those things and still thinks it may be Adam.

Kevin visits Jana in jail. He informs her and Michael he did a successful speaking engagement at the school today. Michael informs them he set up a meeting with a judge to try to get her to reconsider letting Jana out on bail. Michael heads out. Jana says she cannot believe she's back in jail again, but Kevin assures her they'll get her out of there.

Noah and Eden stand outside of Crimson Lights as Noah prepares to meet Abby at the photo shoot. Eden remarks that Abby would never let her be a part of something like that. Noah asks Eden to meet him at Restless Style after her shift at Crimson Lights and she agrees to after Noah promises to make Abby behave.

At the counter inside the coffeehouse, Amber gives Daniel a pen and piece of paper and tells him to write down all of the people who might want to see him crash and burn. Daniel is stumped - he can't think of a single person who would want to set him up for murder! Amber wonders if someone is trying to get Daniel out of the way so he or she can get at her. Daniel tells Amber this doesn't have anything to do with her. Kevin comes in and Daniel apologizes for Jana being in jail. Kevin says he knows Daniel didn't mean for any of this to happen. As they talk, some teen girls come into the coffeehouse and tell Kevin they saw him speak at their school today about the silver chipmunk - he's awesome!

Heather arrives at the Ranch and Victor lets her in, but tells her to make her visit with Adam short because another specialist is coming to see him. Dr. Donahue arrives and Heather goes up to tell Adam he is there after she is introduced to him.

Adam is on his phone in his room with Dr. Taylor, trying to get more botox. Adam is frantic and demands the doctor cancel his surgery to bring him more botox or he'll be telling the medical board about what he's done! Heather knocks on the door and lets herself in. She tells Adam Dr. Donahue is here and she is puzzled by his not wanting to be examined again. Adam tries to get Heather to help him cut off his ankle bracelet, but she won't do that for him. She tells him he'll just go back to jail. Heather tells Adam to give the doctor a chance and leaves. Victor comes in and Adam asks him why he hates him, why he keeps setting him up to fail. Victor tells Adam they owe it to Hope to take advantage of this opportunity. Victor tells Adam to come downstairs and leaves the room.

Adam listens around the corner as the doctor tells Victor he has advanced equipment and that it can detect if Adam has RP for sure. Adam imagines what will happen when the doctor tells Victor Adam has been faking all along. Adam turns to go back up the stairs, but Victor stops him.

Michael arrives at the coffeehouse and chats with Eden. He tells her he's so proud of her for her grades - he knows how hard it has been on her. Eden says she still misses her dad sometimes. Michael asks Eden if she is still with Noah and proceeding with caution. Eden doesn't want to have that talk with him, so he tells her Lauren is always available for her to talk to. He tells her she shouldn't be in a rush to grow up and she's welcome with him and Lauren as long as she likes. Eden and Michael head over to Daniel, Amber, and Kevin and Michael is somewhat puzzled about Kevin's new popularity. Kevin gets a call about another speaking engagement and Michael hopes this will help Jana's case. Amber tells Kevin she is proud of him and Kevin tells her it's all because she got him on the radio show. They agree that one of their enemies might be trying to set Daniel up. Michael advises Daniel not to make one false move or he will end up with his bail revoked. Amber is up to something on her computer and goes off by herself. Daniel tells Kevin he has an idea on how to find out who is setting him up - they need to get the victim's cell phone from the evidence room. Daniel wants Kevin to go get it, saying, "Do it for Jana!"

Noah comes into the Restless Style office not completely pleased with his look. Ashley and Abby love his look, however! Ashley leaves and Abby warns her to be careful around Adam as she does so. Noah and Abby finish their photo shoot and talk about which one of them is more spoiled! Abby says she heard Nick and Sharon are back together. Noah is skeptical about how long it will last. He asks Abby if she can keep a secret - he's thinking about divorcing his parents! Abby tries to point out the downside of living on his own, but Noah says he doesn't mind - he wants to be free. Eden comes in and Abby blurts out that this must be Eden's idea. Noah tells Abby it was his idea, not hers. Abby says if Noah should be emancipated from anyone, it should be Eden! Noah escorts Abby out and tells Eden to ignore her.

Ashley arrives home at the Ranch and tells Victor to feel the baby kicking, but he can't feel it! Adam and Dr. Donahue come downstairs and the doctor informs Victor this has been a waste of time because Adam has puncture wounds in his eyes. He says it seems Adam has been injecting something into his eyes! Victor demands to know what kind of monster Adam is and accuses him of being the one who has been tormenting Ashley. Adam says the people who beat him up in prison also stuck him in the eyes with hypodermic needles! Adam also denies being the one who is scaring Ashley. Victor asks the doctor if Adam could have injected himself in the eye with something in order to fool other doctors. Dr. Donahue informs him the tests show Adam has been suffering with the eye disease for quite some time and he will become permanently blind. He tells Victor Adam cannot participate in the trial because of the damage that was done to his eyes from the injections. While Adam absorbs the information, Victor says he's sorry to hear about this.

Michael runs into Heather before he is about to meet with the judge. Heather informs Michael she's re-opening the murder case against Jana! Michael tells her they should deal with one case at a time.

Amber discovers she may have a cyberstalker. She texts her former partner, Allie to see if she may have a cyberstalker as well.

Michael goes to visit Jana in jail and informs her that Judge Collins is leaning towards re-opening her old murder case. He says Heather really wants a conviction this time. Jana cries. She says she knew this would happen - she took someone's life. Michael reminds her she was sick at the time. He says she's done so many good things - she helped Kevin turn his life around and they're not going to let her slip through their fingers! Jana says she's lucky to have Michael and Kevin in her life, but Michael says they are the lucky ones.

Ashley tells Victor Adam couldn't have done all of those things to scare her. Victor feels guilty that he didn't get Adam out of jail sooner - he could see he was getting beaten up. Adam throws a book across his room in frustration. Ashley comes in and tells him how sorry she and Victor are. She assures him he'll get through this and she tells him since he's been there so many times for her and her baby, she's going to be there for him through this. Adam cries on Ashley's shoulder.

Money Found At Crimson Lights

Nick and Sharon get ready for their day in their room at the Club. Nick wants to make love instead of going house hunting, but Sharon convinces him to go by reminding him that Summer is waiting for him. They talk about Noah and how he will volunteer at the Rec Center this summer. They kiss. Sharon asks Nick if he's told Phyllis they're taking Summer house hunting today and Nick admits he hasn't told her yet.

Jana, Daniel, Kevin, and Amber are in the apartment talking. Jana and Daniel are going to meet with Michael, but Daniel plans to go visit Phyllis first and fill her in on what's going on. Daniel and Jana leave while Kevin and Amber stay behind. There's a knock at the door - it's Aucker, the FBI agent - and he's got a search warrant to search the apartment for the missing money! Kevin says it's odd that it's the do-gooders that are in trouble this time instead of them, and Amber agrees.

At the Chancellor Mansion, Nina comes downstairs and inquires if the lab has called back yet. Katherine tells her they haven't. They wonder whether Jill is trying to cover something up, but Katherine points out that she was just as surprised the records were missing as they were. Katherine wonders if Nina will tell Jill that Violet wasn't in town when the babies were switched, but Nina wants to wait to tell her. The lab calls and tells Nina the man who dealt with Phillip's case before has disappeared after it was proven that he falsified documents! Jill comes into the room during the call. Nina tells Katherine and Jill what's going on and she says now she knows something is going on. Jill defends Cane, but Nina says she didn't say Cane was lying - she said someone was lying and that someone doesn't want them to know who's buried in Phillip's grave. Nina and Jill argue about whether or not to exhume Phillip's body. Jill says it nearly killed her when she had to exhume what she thought was her mother's body, this would kill her - she forbids it! Nina tells Jill it's not up to her. Katherine points out it doesn't really matter who is buried in Phillip's grave because they all love him. Nina becomes frustrated and yells, "I want to know who's in that coffin!" Jill finally agrees to the exhumation so that they can find out if Nina's son has Huntington's, but Jill insists that no other DNA tests should be done. Katherine agrees with Jill, and Nina agrees to the stipulation.

Cane leaves a worried message for Phillip at Jimmy's. Lily comes in and asks Cane if he's still worried about what Nina's doing. Cane says his mom will take care of it, but Lily points out that he tossed and turned all night in his sleep last night. Lily wonders what is really going on and Cane tells her about how it was growing up without a family and watching other kids in their families. Cane says it feels good to belong to a family now and he's afraid it will all disappear. Lily assures him that he's a Chancellor and her husband and it won't change.

Daniel visits Phyllis at Restless Style and they engage in some small talk before he tells her what's going on. Phyllis admits Nick told her about Victoria being involved in an art scheme. Daniel tells her it is the same thing. Phyllis tells Daniel to stay out of trouble and to be careful. Daniel then asks about Summer and Phyllis says she is doing okay, but she also wonders why daddy isn't tucking her into bed anymore. Daniel goes to say hello to Summer before he leaves Restless Style to meet with Michael.

Mary Jane and Jack sit down at a table at the Club for breakfast. Mary Jane becomes annoyed when Jack takes a phone call from Phyllis, leaving the table so he can talk with her privately. She sees Sharon at the bar and goes over to her and apologizes for her behavior the last time she saw her. Mary Jane congratulates Sharon on her reunion with Nick - she's a sucker for love stories. Mary Jane inquires if they plan on staying together - is she done with Jack? Sharon is shocked to hear that Mary Jane and Jack are seeing each other again. Mary Jane tells Sharon Phyllis said she wouldn't stay with Nick and might go back to Jack. Sharon tells Mary Jane not to listen to Phyllis. Jack comes over and Sharon asks to speak with him privately. Mary Jane excuses herself to make a phone call. Sharon asks Jack if they are okay. Jack admits it was hard for him to watch Sharon leave with Nick the other day, but he will always be there for her. They hug and Mary Jane watches. Sharon inquires about him and Mary Jane and tells him that she wants him free and clear. Jack says he's not ready for anything serious with, "that woman!" Mary Jane comes over and tells Jack she needs to head to Restless Style and kisses him. After Mary Jane leaves, Sharon tells Jack Mary Jane is infatuated with him. Jack says Mary Jane isn't the bunny-boiler type!

Jana and Daniel meet with Michael at Jimmy's. He asks them about what happened on that night and Daniel admits he touched the gun. He also tells Michael he didn't see the money or Victoria. Daniel mentions the man with the ski mask and Jana tells Michael that's who Aucker should be looking for. Michael tells them if Aucker isn't doing his job, they will. Michael discovers the dead man had a cell phone on him with Daniel's number in the contact list. He says the DA isn't going to arrest them right now, but they are still suspects and he wants them to live the lives of saints until the money is found.

Nick arrives at Restless Style to pick up Summer and Phyllis is calm. He tells her that they are going to look for a house today. Phyllis isn't so sure this is a good idea because it's so soon after Nick moved out. Nick points out that Summer can't come to the Club for visitation and that things are going to change and need to be stable for Summer. Phyllis tells him leaving his family and hooking back up with his ex is anything but stable! Just then, Summer appears with George, the photographer. He suggests putting Summer on the cover of Restless Style, but Phyllis is reluctant. George says Summer would be a great cover for a magazine on teens and kids and Nick agrees. Nick suggests they do some test shots. Mary Jane walks in on what appears to be a close moment between the family.

Kevin and Amber go to the coffeehouse and they are relieved not to find the cops there. Amber follows Kevin into the back room for more sweetener and they discover the briefcase full of money! Kevin speculates this is the money the feds are searching for. Amber and Kevin agree it had to be planted there because there's no way Daniel or Jana would hide it there. Aucker comes in with a search warrant for the coffeehouse. As he is searching the back room, Michael, Daniel, and Jana come in. Amber and Kevin gesture wildly, but Aucker comes out with the briefcase full of money. Daniel insists he doesn't know how it got there. Michael commands him not to talk. Daniel is placed under arrest and Michael calls Phyllis to tell her what's happening.

Phyllis hangs up and says she has to leave at Restless Style. Nick wants to know what's going on and Phyllis tells him Daniel has been arrested. She tells him it's got something to do with that art scam Victoria got caught up in. Nick insists on driving Phyllis. She finally agrees and they ask Mary Jane to watch Summer for them. Nick also calls Sharon to inform her on what's going on. Mary Jane tells Summer not to worry about daddy not living with mommy anymore because Auntie Mary Jane will take care of everything and that everyone will end up with whom they are supposed to be with - happily ever after!

Jill calls Cane and he takes the call at Jimmy's. She tells him Phillip's body is being exhumed to test for the Huntington's gene and that no other DNA testing will be done. She says no one disbelieves Cane. Cane calls Phillip again, but he still isn't home. Cane leaves a message, saying it's urgent.

Nina makes a call to the lab and asks them to do another DNA test on the body when it is exhumed!
