At Crimson Lights, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) informed Sharon (Sharon Case) that she left Adam (Mark Grossman). Although Sharon was in a great mood about her successful cancer treatment, she immediately worried about Adam’s state of mind. Chelsea told Sharon that he was all hers.
Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) came in, and she took Chelsea to the patio to discuss their designs, but she said she was out of inspiration. Chelsea rubbed her head, and then as she walked out, she fainted, and Chloe screamed for help.
Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Nick (Joshua Morrow) were flirting at The Grand Phoenix, and he got a text from his younger brother. Nick left, and Summer (Hunter King) walked in.

Then, Summer urged her mom to take Nick’s help in buying out Victoria instead of sticking to her regular brand of solving problems.
Upstairs, Abby (Melissa Ordway) and Chance (Donny Boaz) talked about the possibility of having a child sometime soon, and Abby noted she had to help plan Dina’s (Marla Adams) memorial.
At the Abbott mansion, Kyle showed up, and Jack (Peter Bergman) welcomed him in. The doorbell rang, and Kyle opened the door to Theo (Tyler Johnson). Jack apologized to Theo for not contacting him sooner, and Ashley (Eileen Davidson) and Traci (Beth Maitland) appeared, giving their apologies too. Abby got there as they all brainstormed ideas for Dina’s sendoff.
Theo realized he was the only family member who didn’t receive a piece of jewelry made from Teardrop of Love. When the topic of Dina’s will came up, Kyle didn’t like that Theo asked when she’d last changed it. They got into an argument about how Theo was part of the family that Dina never wanted. Jack intervened, and later Theo talked to Traci about being an outsider. Elsewhere, Abby and Ashley talked about her plans to get pregnant. Kyle warned Jack that Theo would be a thorn in their sides forever.
Chance stopped by Adam’s penthouse to let him know the official inquiry was over and he was cleared. Adam let his former friend know that Chelsea left him, and he was refocusing. Chance worried about what Adam had planned. He later told Abby that her brother had something in the works.
At Newman Enterprises, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Nick agreed to call a temporary truce to present a united front against Adam. They wondered what he had planned. Then Adam entered, and he surprised them by saying he has decided not to be part of the Newman family. He asked for them to leave him alone. After he went, Nick and Victoria didn’t quite believe their brother.
Adam met Victor (Eric Braeden) at Society, and he handed his father the court order changing his last name from Newman to Wilson. For Adam, it represented washing away the crimes of his old self and becoming somebody new. Victor warned his son that he’d crossed a line in his own mind. Later, he told Victoria and Nick about their brother’s name change, and Victoria asked her dad to let it go.
In the park, Kyle said Summer was right as they were better off apart.
