A taxi cab pulls unto the Newman’s land. As the taxi drives through the freshly fallen snow, Victor who sits in the back looks out the window. He can see his horse stable is empty and tall grass and plants stick up from the snow. He shakes his head. He sees Nick and Sharon’s old house and sees the windows are boarded up. Victor can’t believe his eyes. Then the taxi pulls up to the Newman Ranch. He sees his house is also boarded up.
Victor: I am Victor Newman.
Taxi Driver: Still have to pay Mr. Newman. My time is not free.
Victor gets out the cab. He walks towards his house but then stops. He looks around, taking in the view as the snow hits his face. He looks around his property and realizes it’s abandoned and no longer his.
Victor: Michael Baldwin sold all my assets to Jack ass Abbott. Even my damn horses! He will pay for this. Michael and Jack ass Abbott will pay for this.
Victor gets back into the cab and instructs him to drive off.

Michael and Phyllis continue their coffee and conversation.
Michael: I’m not. Sheila came to me and blackmailed me.
Phyllis: Sheila had information on you…? What was it Michael?
Michael: I stole Victor Newman’s assets and gave them to Jack. Sheila knew I did that.
Phyllis: How would she know about a thing like that and why would you do something like that Michael? I thought you were loyal to Victor. You even committed perjury at his trial.
Michael: At some point someone had to hold Victor accountable. I wasn’t agreeing with everything he was doing at the time. Especially having Billy kidnapped. So I was able to get him to sign a set of documents. What he didn’t know was that I slipped in documents that handed me control of Victor’s empire. Sheila broke into my office and found those documents and then began to black mail me.
Phyllis: Sheila broke into your office? How did you know it was her?
Michael: She showed herself to me.
Phyllis: So all this time Michael Baldwin you knew Sheila was alive and didn’t say anything to any one?
Phillip and Rufus pull up in the parking lot of the Genoa City Athletic Club. Phillip turns his car off. Rufus leans over and plants a kiss on him. She grabs his crotch to get the feel of his temperature. It’s rising and she is happy.
Rufus: I do sugar daddy.
Phillip: Why don’t you go up first and get yourself ready. I’m a Chancellor and I don’t want to draw any attention to myself.
Rufus: You better come up daddy. I’m wanting, needing and waiting for you. Room 702.
Phillip: I’ll be up in ten minutes.
Rufus gives him another kiss and then gets out the car.
Phillip watches her walk away. He begins to have some thoughts to himself.
Phillip: What the hell am I doing?... What is happening to me?... I just hope that Scotty kid doesn’t say anything to anyone. All this has me feeling stressed and anxious again, I need another hit.
Phillip gets out of the car and walks in the club. He holds his head low as he puts the hood of his coat over his head to really conceal his identity. He approaches the elevators and presses the up button. He gets on and hits the number 7. The door closes and Phillip begins to think about what he is going to find when he gets to the room. He at least hopes a few lines of coke are already laid out. The doors open on floor seven and he looks at the sign which displays which rooms are where according to the numbers. The lower end is to his right. He makes a right and he sees room 702. He knocks.
Phillip: Red must be your favorite color.
Rufus smiles at him as she takes Phillip’s hand and pulls him into the bedroom of the two room suite. He sees a heart shaped bed with satin sheets. He sees a mini mirror with a few lines of coke ready to go Laying on the bed. He smiles.
Rufus climbs onto the bed. With her finger she motions him to come to her as she hits play on her phone. The song “Justify my Love” by Madonna begins to play.
As Phillip lays on the bed, Rufus begins to dance for him on the bed seductively. She then takes the mirror and hands it to Phillip.
He takes it and takes a straw and snorts a line. He hands it to Rufus and she does a line too.
Phillip coughs and then holds his nose.
Rufus begins to dance for him again.
Rufus: I want to know you… I’m ready for you sugar daddy. Wanting, needing, waiting for you.
Phillip takes his shirt off.
Rufus: I’m open and ready.
She lays on top of him and begins to kiss Phillip.
Phillip then flips her over on her back.
Rufus: Aggression. I like that. I didn’t think you had it in you. Tell me Sugar daddy what pleasure will we gain? What are you going to do to me?
Phillip leans down and kisses Rufus.
Nikki is sitting at her grand white piano that sits in front of her oversized window that overlooks Genoa City. Chase has his arm around Nikki as she continues to play her somber tune.
Nikki looks at him with tears in her eyes thinking of Katherine.
Nikki: Thank you Chase… Chase, let’s dance.
Nikki: Let’s have a drink and dance. I want to dance. I feel like dancing.
Chase gives his boss a weird look.
Nikki: Please Chase. You said you are here for me.
Chase: But I don’t think we should be drinking Mrs. Newman. Espciceally you.
Nikki: I want to drink Chase. Besides I’ve already had one so another will not hurt.
Nikki gets up off the piano stand and walks over to the bar and pours them a double shot of vodka. She walks over to Chase and hands him his glass.
Chase: Nicole, please I wouldn’t feel right.
Nikki: I am the boss.
Chase: Well yes you are.
He grabs the glass and they toast. They both take theirs in one big gulp.
Nikki: I feel so good. Kay and I feel so good and we want to dance and you will dance with us.
Chase: I’m sorry Mrs. Newman who else is here?
Nikki: Katherine of course. Now let me find us some music Mr. Driver. Just one second.
The song “On my Own” by Patti Labelle plays. She grabs Chase and they begin to dance.
As Nikki dances the room spins. She’s feeling good and really feeling the music. Her mind relaxes. A kind of relaxation which lets her mind go on a trip down memory lane. Nikki remembers being on stage as a stripper and men throwing money at her.
Chase: You really have some moves Mrs. Newman.
Nikki: I’m good with music.
Nikki then feels light headed. She is about to faint until Chase catches her.
Chase: Alright that’s enough Mrs. Newman. Let’s get you to sit down.
He escorts over to the couch. He sits them both down.
Nikki: I’m drunk Chase.
Nikki lays on his shoulder and throws her arm around him.
Chase: I know Nikki.
Nikki: Stay with me tonight Chase. I don’t want to be alone.
Chase: Of Course Mrs. Newman.
He kisses her head and puts his arm around her and holds her. They both pass out on the couch.
Victor’s taxi pulls up to Brownstone Apartments in midtown Genoa City.
Taxi Driver: 55 dollars.
Victor: I’m Victor Newman.
Taxi Driver: 60 dollars then.
Victor: How dare you!? What is this a Newman tax?
Victor pulls out his wallet and throws three twenty’s at the driver.
Taxi Driver: You Newman’s sure are rude!
Victor: I beg your pardon...
Victor looks for a name tag.
Victor: Mason McCreedy. I remember that name. You used to work for me at Newman Enterprises.
Mason: That’s me, thank you Newman. If you could vacate the cab I have other runs.
Victor is stunned at Mason’s disrespectful attitude.
Victor gets out of the cab. He walks into the apartment building and presses up on the elevator panel. He walks inside once the doors open and is upset and thinks about how that cab driver just treated him. He vows he is going to get his name, empire and respect back. The elevator doors open and Victor walks to a door and pounds.
The door opens and on the other side is Lauren.
Victor: Yes Lauren Fenmore. I am a free man. And I came to see your character.
Lauren: I’m sorry what? You are here to see me?
Victor: I am. It’s cold and I like cream and sugar in my coffee mmmk Lauren.
He says brushing beside her and entering her penthouse.
Lauren: Well sure come in Victor.
Lauren closes the door.
Victor: Your testimony, telling the court that Michael Baldwin committed perjury sent me to jail.
Lauren: I told the truth. Michael lied to a court of law. What kind of example is that setting for our son Fenmore? I don’t live by the Newman creed Victor. And I’m certainly not going to raise any of my children to do things as you do them. I’m also fresh out of coffee.
Victor: I do what I do for the love and preservation of my family. If you choose to go about it a different way than I do then I have no problem with that. But when it interferes in what I am doing then it becomes my problem.
Lauren: And what is that supposed to mean?
Victor: I forgive you Lauren Fenmore. I forgive your character.
Lauren: Is that so? I never knew you to be a forgiving man. What’s behind all this? And why are you talking like that?
Victor: I understand you are about to divorce Michael Baldwin and sue for sole custody of your son Fenmore.
Lauren: I don’t think that’s any of your business.
Victor: It is when I can help you win your case.
Lauren: Why would you want to help me and not Michael? He is the one who committed perjury for you. He put everything on the line for you Victor! I told the truth that sent you to prison. So why help me?
Victor: That pip squeak husband of yours betrayed me. He signed over all my assets to Jack ass Abbott and for that he is going to pay. So by helping you, I will be helping myself.
Lauren: I don’t get it.
Victor: Revenge on Michael pip squeak Baldwin. I am going to crush him!
Back at Crimson Lights.
Phyllis: Michael you look guilty as hell. I can’t believe what I am hearing right now. You knew all along Sheila was alive and said nothing. It makes me want to ask what else you are hiding. You betrayed Victor, you knew about Sheila. What else do you know Michael? What else have you done? What’s happened to you? Who are you?
Michael: I’m in a lot of trouble Phyllis. I’m in a lot of trouble……
