Recap written by Christine
Billy showed up for the meeting with Gaines, only to learn that Gaines had left the hotel for parts unknown. Billy saw Victor at the hotel and accused him of sending Gaines away. Victoria overheard Ashland leave a terse but vague message for Gaines. She asked him about it, and he told her that an employee was causing trouble. Victoria felt like Ashland was still hiding something, and she urged him to open up. When Nikki walked in, Ashland seized the opportunity to leave. Victoria told Nikki that she thought something was weighing on Ashland, and she wondered if it had something to do with Billy’s harassment. Billy caught Ashland coming to the hotel, presumably to meet Gaines. Victor covered and said Ashland was there to meet him. Billy and Victor exchanged words. Billy told Victoria and Nikki about Gaines. Victoria didn’t care, and she told Billy to stay out of her and Ashland’s lives. Victor told Ashland that he’d paid Gaines a lot of money to leave Ashland alone. Victor did it because he wanted Victoria to continue to be happy. Victor said that he’d bring Gaines back into the picture if Ashland hurt Victoria.
