Billy bursts in as Phyllis falls down the stairs while begging Jack to take her back. Devin buys GC Buzz, fires a reporter who labelled Jack an abusive husband, and makes Hilary the new talkshow host. Patty (Stacy Haiduk) threatens to spills the beans about Sully unless Sharon gets her out of Stonevale, and Stitch and Abby’s marriage falls apart. Jack and Phyllis team up to wreck Victor’s reputation, and Hilary goes behind Devon’s back to do a Newman exposé on GC Buzz but Victor sues for libel. Elsewhere, Sharon is told that Patty has escaped.
