Michael (Christian LeBlanc) continued to insist to Paul (Doug Davidson) that Lauren (Tracey Bregman) is cheating on him.
Meanwhile, Carmine (Marco Dapper) was at Lauren and Michael’s home with her. She told him their relationship no longer felt good, because she didn’t trust herself. Carmine said her feelings should tell her something about what she needs. Lauren shot back that she couldn’t give in to every impulse.
Paul arrived and interrupted their discussion. Lauren and Carmine tried to cover, but Paul didn’t buy it for a second. He started to leave, but Lauren stopped him by saying she’d called it off. Paul told Lauren this behavior wasn’t her. Paul instructed his ex to tell Michael the truth and face the consequences.
Tyler (Redaric Williams) and Leslie (Angell Conwell) grieved the loss of their father. Leslie seemed to take his death especially hard. Neil (Kristoff St. John) tried to help the siblings with the funeral planning.
Cane (Daniel Goddard) took Lily (Christel Khalil) out for a special meal. He wanted to spend a romantic day with her. Unfortunately for the Aussie, Lily said she had an issue with the fashion line she had to attend to.
Fen (Max Ehrich) told Summer (Hunter King) that Kyle (Hartley Sawyer) would never care for her the way she wanted him to.
Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) overheard Jack (Peter Bergman) talking to Kyle about giving her a surprise. Kyle and Phyllis both wondered if Jack was planning to propose. Jack said that was getting the cart before the horse.
After Kyle and Phyllis left the Abbott mansion, Traci (Beth Maitland) arrived with her luggage. She quickly got to the point of her visit — Phyllis! She grilled him about his feelings for his ex-wife.
Jack made a great speech about how Phyllis was the only woman for him. Later, Traci went upstairs to unpack and discovered Jack had turned her room into Summer’s new room. Traci was shocked to learn Phyllis and Summer had both moved into the Abbott mansion. You mean to tell me there are so few rooms in that big, old house they had to convert a room for Summer?
Michael poured out his feelings about Lauren to Phyllis. I'm glad to see this friendship getting back on track.
Fen continued his spiral out of control. While Kyle was doing a bench press, he grabbed the bar and forced it down on him! The little sociopath-in-training warned Kyle to stay away from Summer.
The best part of the episode was when Phyllis asked Traci how long she was staying in Genoa City and Traci responded, “Indefinitely”.
