However, Phyllis’s sense of insecurity grew when Billy began spending even more time with Victoria after she was hospitalized.

She apparently also hoped that Victoria hooking up with Ben would make Billy give up on her.

However, Billy and others close to Victoria are concerned about her recent pattern of poor judgment and memory lapses. She is rattled when she wakes up in the morning after spending the night with Ben. It is difficult to explain her recent pattern of impulsive behavior and memory lapses except by assuming that the head trauma she suffered during an altercation with Abby is affecting her. She had gone to the hospital for a checkup after she fainted in an elevator, but the doctors said that tests did not show anything wrong with her. However, her recent pattern of impulsive behavior could get her into trouble.
