Just as Heather is basking in the political sunlight of her high poll numbers and celebrating with Paul by having lunch at the Gina’s, Billy’s storyIn Restless Style hits the internet and goes viral. Heather is alerted to the article by a phone call and as she shows the posting to Paul on her blackberry Billy walks in the Club. Heather confronts Billy and asks him how could he ruin her career? Billy in his nonchalant manner tells her that he simply printed the facts; she did accept money from Victor and she did return the favor by intervening in the lawsuit filed against him by his daughters. Though Heather seems surprised with the head of her political party phones her to inform her that they are pulling their support of her candidacy, Paul’s is not surprised at all. Paul tried to warn Heather that when you roll the dice with Victor Newman you will never get lucky sevens. Just as the phone calls and emails begin to overwhelm Heather and as she leaves the Club to go outside to get some air she is corned by several reporters; she decides to resign as graciously as is possible under the circumstances.
Devastated that she is powerless to prevent JT from taking Reed to Washington with him and Mac, Victoria goes to her mother for comfort. When Victoria arrives at Solidarity house Nikki’s maternal instincts kick in as soon as Victoria opens her door. She comforts Victoria and suggests to her that she call Victor to help her stop JT from taking Reed. Victoria reminds Nikki that were it not for Victor’s attempts to help her in the first place (although she seems to forget that she asked for his help) she would not have lost custody of Reed in the first place. Nikki threatens to check out of her treatment program but Victoria insists that she stays. When Victoria leaves Deacon shows up and Nikki again confines in him about Victoria’s issues. Has she forgotten that her confidant Deacon is the same man that slept with her married daughter and was instrumental in the break up of her marriage (I guess in soap world they have a special kind of amnesia).
Mac and JT tell Catherine that they would like to get married before they leave but they believe it to be an impossible task. Catherine their fairy godmother (grandmother) does not believe in the word impossible and off she goes to her millionaire land to arrange a wedding for Mac and JT. Billy shows up at Mac and Billy’s to say goodbye to Mac but mostly to let JT know how much taking Reed away is hurting his wife. (I must admit I am happy to see how loving and supported Billy is being to Victoria, I wonder how long it will last.).
Maggie’s little plan is working just as it apparently has worked in the past. She has persuaded Victor that he needs a little fun and that she is the one to accompany him. Instead of going to Vegas Victor (Victor did not want to go there for that is where he and Nikki was to be married) they go to Reno. Maggie has arranged for the justice of the peace and other officials to come to the jet to perform their wedding ceremony. The cocktail that she slipped in Victor’s drink is really working. It has him groggy and agreeable. Victor’s pilot when told of the sudden nuptials asks Victor if he was sure he wanted to do this and Victor said yes. He and Maggie are married even though Victor could not stand and he said his vows with slurred speech. (Is Victor this gullible, is the writers of this show this boring that they would repeat what Amber did to Cane, let us hope not)?
Catherine arranges a wedding for Mac and JT they need only take themselves to the Chancellor mansion, even their wedding attire has been arranged. Did I tell you that money talks? Nikki tries to phone Victor herself to ask that he help Victoria stop JT only to reach his voicemail. As she stands still talking with Deacon she also tries Maggie to hear her voice mail that says that “she is accompanying Mr. Newman to Las Vegas for a few days”, Deacon knows what is going on but of course Nikki does not read his facial expression or body language. Hearing Maggie’s voicemail really shocks and infuriates Nikki. Next on the Young and the Restless………….
