Over at the Newman ranch, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) will unload her problems onto Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), spilling all the details about Billy’s friendship with Amana and their big fight. They’ll rehash all of Billy and Victoria’s problems, and Nikki will do her best to support her daughter.
After Victoria goes, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) will join Nikki and proceed to denigrate Billy and openly worry about Victoria. Nikki will caution him to keep his feelings to himself when he talks with Victoria, as she’s feeling pretty raw about the problems she and Billy are having.
Later, a private investigator will visit with Victor and show him a photo of Billy and Amanda together before saying there’s something else that Victor should know about Amanda.
Billy will arrive back home, and Victoria will be upset that he went back to the Empty Glass rather than getting help. He’ll point out that he could get therapy for the rest of his life and it wouldn’t be enough for her.

Chelsea will mention possibly leaving Genoa City, which Nick will think is a great idea, since Connor Newman (Judah Mackey) and Chelsea could get out from under Adam’s reputation around town.
Back at their penthouse, Adam and Chelsea will talk about their run-in with Nick, and Adam will suggest that they try to move to Paris soon – even as early as Valentine’s Day or St. Patrick’s Day.
Chelsea will think that’s awfully quick, but she’ll be happy that Adam would upend his life for her and Connor. Adam will say that wherever they are, that’s where his home is.
Later, when Chelsea’s out of the room, Adam will place a call to Chance, saying that “my guy finally heard from her, but she is starting to ask questions, so I just wanted to give you a heads up.” He won’t see Chelsea quizzically listening from the staircase.
Back at the Grand Phoenix, Nick will arrive, and Phyllis will question him about what’s going on with Sharon, who will have stepped away to the ladies’ room.
Phyllis will note that Sharon is being kind, generous, and sincere, and that she just doesn’t understand it. Sharon will return and say a pleasant goodnight to Phyllis, who will remain weirded out.
Later at home, Sharon will tell Rey about how she made the mistake of going online and digging deeper into various treatments, and she ended up seeing more than she wanted to.
