Phyllis/Nick/Sharon: The battle brewing between housewife Phyllis vs. scheming Phyllis starts to heat up. The birthday of the Newman's baby girl Summer is held at the couple's home where Phyllis still is smarting from the revelation that she caught Nick kissing his ex-wife Sharon and her (Sharon) being the one that stopped the kiss. Not even their daughter's party can make Phyllis ease up on being icy with Nick. The party goes from bad to worse when Sharon swings by with a gift that Noah left for his little sister and the one Sharon has for her as well (WTF!?). Nick's the one that intercepts Sharon's arrival and is eager to get rid of her and not have anymore drama between he and Phyllis. Nick decides to speak to Sharon outside where Phyllis finds him after noticing that he's missing when she tries to take a family picture of her hubby and little girl. When Phyllis queries on Nick's whereabouts, Nikki informs her that Nick is outside speaking to Sharon.

Nick tells Sharon that Phyllis was in France for a Restless Style photo shoot and before he can say more Phyllis emerges from the house and greets Sharon! Even though the tension between the trio is thick, there isn't any hostility between the ladies. Phyllis knows that Sharon can care less about her well being however, she does know that Sharon wouldn't go after Nick since Sharon has been cheated on before.

While everyone's singing Happy Birthday, Phyllis starts to stare a hole into the gift Sharon brought when one tends to wonder if the old Phyllis Summers has started to appear once again.
