DYLAN’S NEW LIFE
Sharon is devastated when Dylan, the only person keeping her sane, walks out on their marriage, on The Young and the Restless.
Adopting his new identity of Derek Young, Dylan learns he’s to target a minder named Fisk (Scott Speiser) before giving Sharon his wedding ring and leaving, terrifying her about having no contact with her husband. While Paul (Doug Davidson) stews over his son’s safety and fends off Sharon’s demands to let her talk to Dylan, a disguised Dylan soon encounters danger in Miami.
Meeting with Fisk’s cohort, Dylan is stunned to see that Alex (Jess Webb) is a female operative. She’s flirtatious and wants Dylan to snort cocaine with her. He tries to distract her but she pulls him into bed until he demands to meet Fisk. She complies, only for Dylan to find himself held at gunpoint by a burly henchman. He’s grateful when Alex saves him from jeopardy.
Unfortunately, Sharon’s nervousness could soon be Dylan’s undoing. Secretly finding a burner phone that the police are using to keep track of Dylan, Sharon phones him, only for Alex to answer. Sharon is astounded and hangs up, prompting Alex to interrogate Dylan about the woman.
Lying that the woman is his boss’s assistant Amanda, Dylan is forced to have sex with Alex to throw her off Sharon’s scent. Regretting it, Dylan alerts Paul to “Christine’s” breach of contract but upon realising that the woman caller was Sharon, Paul raves that she has put her husband’s life in grave danger.
