Billy comes by Chelsea’s apartment, claiming to be there for an update on Connor’s school project with the egg drop device. However, Chelsea senses that Billy is distracted and unhappy. Eventually, he tells Chelsea that Lily thinks that she and he may be done, and Chelsea becomes alarmed and worried that the rift  in his relationship with Lily is due to Billy spending too much time with her.

As a result, Chelsea strongly suggests to Billy that he meet with Lily and let her know how much she means to him.  Chelsea tells Billy that she got a second chance, now he deserves one. With Chelsea’s encouragement, Billy texts Lily to ask if they can get together.

Meanwhile, Lily is at Society, where she runs into Nick and joins him at a table. Lily is cautious about telling him anything regarding her relationship with Billy, seeing as how Billy had been Nick’s brother-in-law at one point. So, Billy and Nick have small talk, talking about how their holidays were.

Nick then apologizes for Newman Media’s decision to fire Sally and instate Nate as CEO with the company. Lily lets him know that it’s fine because she knows he was not involved with what happened with Nate and Victoria. Nick doesn’t mention anything specific, but Lily says that his silence is giving her answers about the overall situation.  She lets him know that when she gets hurt, she can roll with it. Nick asks if they’re talking about Nate or Billy at that point. He offers to listen to whatever is troubling her but she declines.

After Nick leaves, Lily gets a text notification on her phone. It’s from Billy, saying that he wants to meet up with her. She agrees to get together with him at the Glam Club. When they are there, Billy tells her that he wants to save their relationship. After some tense words between him and Lily, he admits that he messed up.

He tells her that he will do anything that needs to be done to salvage their relationship, saying that he will make an appointment for couples counseling and do anything else Lily requests. She and Billy agree to improve their relationship rather than abandoning it.

At her apartment, Chelsea gets a text from Connor asking if they can have pizza with Johnny that week. Chelsea starts typing a text about it to Billy, but deletes what she had been typing. Instead, she texts Victoria to ask her about it. When Victoria gets Chelsea’s text asking if Johnny could join her and Connor for pizza sometime, Victoria doesn’t want that. So, she starts typing a reply to Chelsea, saying that Johnny has too much homework.  Victoria hesitates, then changes her mind and deletes what she was typing. Instead she lets Chelsea know that she will get back to her about setting up a night that works for all of them.
