Summoning him in, Katherine tells Paul that she was the one that requested him to return to Genoa City. Looking around, Paul asks why Esther didn’t come to the door. Waving a hand nonchalantly, Katherine tells Paul that she sent Esther to have some time to herself; besides, with no Esther in the house, the more privately she can discuss the purpose for his assistance. Sitting down, Paul asks what she needs. Handing Paul a folder, Katherine tells him about the various pictures of Philip. Paul doesn’t understand what a few photographs would need him to investigate. Turning the photograph over, she points to the name ‘Freddie Wilson.’ She also tells him to take a good look; the picture was taken in Detroit. She wants to know whatever he can dig up on Philip’s time there and why he was going under the name of Freddie.
Jill is more than pleased to finally have some quality time with her son over lunch. As the two eat at the athletic club, Cane asks how things are going on the new cosmetics line. Jill marvels about how everything seems to be coming together. She immediately talks about the long hours Jack has put in with her to get things off the ground.

Looking at him, she knows his true reasons for asking. Phyllis assures Jack that she’s not going to get behind on their venture that they have planned for NVP; so don’t get too confident that Jabot is going to do them in. Holding up his hands, Jack pleads that he’s only asking because he thought she would like to spend more time with Summer. Laughing a little, Phyllis tells Jack to shut up and stop talking business.

Brad, having a sick pleasure of knowing that Nick has walked in on him with Sharon, quips that Nick has ‘perfect timing.’ Nick, not wanting to get into why Sharon is with Brad, tells Sharon that he was coming to pick up Noah to spend some time with Summer. Sighing, Sharon tells Nick that she completely forgot that he was coming over and sent Noah to play with a friend. Nick, without meaning to, comments that she sent him to play with his friend so she can have time to secretly ‘play’ with hers Before Sharon has a chance to say anything, Nick tells her that he’ll be home; when Noah comes back, bring him over.
