Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) caught Adrian (Jay Montalvo) flirting with Sharon (Sharon Case) at Crimson Lights, and they began arguing. Celeste (Eva LaRue) broke it up, and eventually, Adrian left. Rey and Celeste hugged, and then they discussed Sharon. Celeste let her son know that he will find happiness someday.
At the rooftop bar, Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren (Tracey Bregman) discussed him running for District Attorney. Michael denied he was nervous, and Lauren wondered if Michael’s career change had something to do with Adam (Mark Grossman). Lauren couldn’t help but think something is off because there are lines that Michael wouldn’t cross in the past, and now he represented Adam after dumping Nick (Joshua Morrow). Lauren confronted her husband about hiding something from her. In Lauren’s mind, it is all tied to Kevin (Greg Rikaart) somehow, but Michael shook hands with voters instead of answering his wife. Adam showed up, and Lauren watched while they talked. Adam told Michael that he persuaded some people not to run against him.

Phyllis also praised Victor’s (Eric Braeden) helping Nick get a restraining order against Adam. She doesn’t believe that Adam has Christian’s best interest at heart. Phyllis proclaimed Adam’s life sad.
Elsewhere, Zoe introduced herself to Summer and admitted that she followed Summer on social media. She also seemed interested in Theo, and Summer didn’t try to stop Zoe when Theo invited them to lunch, and Zoe said Summer was busy.
