At the Abbott mansion, Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) tells Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) she and Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) had a huge fight. She fills Abby in on what happened at Crimson Lights and thinks the worst part is Summer Newman (Hunter King) knows she’s a virgin now. Abby advises that Summer can’t make Kyle’s decisions for him, but Lola tells her he stayed at the coffee house with Summer. As they talk, Abby promises if Kyle’s the right guy he’ll wait until she’s ready. Lola asks what she should do next. Abby counsels to choose with her heart.
At the Athletic Club, Kyle Abbott is looking at Lola Rosales on his phone when Summer Newman joins him. She fishes to find out if he’s made up with Lola. Kyle doesn’t know what to say at this point. Summer advises he say what she’s saying right now; “I’m sorry I hurt you and this is all my fault.” Kyle reassures her and Summer pries about why Lola won’t have sex before teasing that he and Fenmore Baldwin (Zach Tinder) should be auctioned off for Valentine’s Day promotion.
Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) sees them laughing together. She asks to speak to Kyle alone and confronts him about ‘yucking it up’ with the blonde ( snowflake) . Mariah warns he’ll lose Lola for good. They bicker until Kyle admits he’s been thinking he has more in common with Summer than Lola. Mariah barks, “Because you both like sex?” She advises him to be his best self for Lola or move on, but decide before it’s too late.
Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) arrives at the ranch and updates his parents that Sharon McAvoy had no choice but to hand over the recording, and reminds Nikki Newman of her loyalty. Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) arrives and he’s heard the tape from Christine Williams (Lauralee Bell), and announces Victor Newman’s trial starts tomorrow.

They debate with Michael who pleads with them to give him something or the jury will treat the recording as a confession. He adds, “It’s time to make some tough decisions.” Victor wants him to show it’s a conspiracy and he won’t plead out. Michael warns Nick could be implicated too. After Michael leaves, Nikki won’t stand by and allow this to happen. She looks thoughtful as Nick and Victor reassure one another and embrace. Nick leaves and Victor reassures Nikki no one will go down for J.T. Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) death.

She advises that sex brings you closer to your partner and she’d hate to see her lose Kyle’s love over it. Mia urges Lola to go to Kyle and make it right.
