Sharon’s doing her best to deal with life without Dylan, but her sadness is wearing on her. At work, Chelsea offers her time off, but Sharon refuses. As Chelsea continues to ask more and more questions about Dylan, Sharon eventually has enough and snaps on her. Later, she goes to see Faith at Victor and Nikki’s house. Faith is eager to come back home and keep her mother company, but Sharon doesn’t want her to. This isn’t her mess to fix. At Sharon’s house, Paul walks in on Sharon packing up a few of Dylan’s things. She wants to send them to him. Paul says absolutely not; there can be no contact between Dylan and anyone in Genoa City. However, there is something that Dylan wants Sharon to have – the deed to Crimson Lights. Sharon goes over to Crimson Lights as the new owner, and in walks Nikki Newman. They bicker and Sharon ends it by pouring milk all over Nikki’s head. Shortly after, Lily walks in to see Sharon cleaning up the milk on the floor, and Sharon fills her in on what happened. Lily barely blinks after hearing the story – she knows very well what it’s like to have an overbearing mother-in-law- and is happy to help clean up the mess. From there, Sharon goes to Victor’s house to find Faith, and in a shocking twist, Victor offers Sharon his help. They have a heartfelt moment where they remember the times when Victor always had her back. Sharon says if he really wants to help, then he needs to help her get in contact with Dylan.
Hilary presses Jack to get revenge on Gloria, but Jack responds by asking her to get Gloria a job at GC Buzz. Hilary says hell no.

When she says no, he offers an alternative – sign a legal doc that says she won’t come after Devon’s money in the future.
