Michael (Christian LeBlanc) stopped by Cricket's (Lauralee Bell) office, where he found Paul (Doug Davidson). Michael told Paul he'd moved out of the home he shared with Lauren (Tracey Bregman) and Fen (Max Ehrich), in an effort to save his marriage.
Michael received a call from Fen's school, telling him the troubled teen was skipping school. Michael headed home, where he found his son passed out on the couch in their royally trashed living room
Meanwhile, Lauren (Tracey Bregman) woke up looking like a kitten who'd spent all night lapping up a warm bowl of cream. Moments later, Carmine (Marco Dapper) arrived with a breakfast of chocolate covered strawberries.
Michael called Lauren to talk about Fen and heard a man's voice in the background. Lauren covered, saying it was a waiter and quickly hung up. Michael later told Paul he thought Lauren was off somewhere with a man. A guilty Lauren skipped out on Carmine to head home to deal with the mess she was making of her family.
Lily (Christel Khalil) and Tyler (Redaric Williams) bumped into each other at the hospital, as a worried Neil (Kristoff St. John) looked on. He gave Lily a sermon about not being a drowning man's life preserver.
Leslie (Angell Conwell) blasted her ailing father about Rose. Near hysterics, she accused him of cheating on her mother with this mystery woman the night Belinda died. Gus (Tony Todd) vehemently denied cheating on his wife.
I was just as enraged as Jill (Jess Walton) when Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) named Cane (Daniel Goddard) her successor at Chancellor. Furthermore, shouldn't Billy (Billy Miller) be at the hospital supporting these two women, as opposed to Cane? On the bright side, at least this scenario provided Jill the opportunity to finally rip Cane a new one.
Kevin (Greg Rikaart) arrived at Chloe’s (Elizabeth Hendrickson) design studio with flowers. She thought he was up to something, but he said he was there to ask her to have lunch with him.
