Devon and Lily thanked Victor for his kind words. Abby hugged Victor, and Lily walked away. Victor told Devon how proud he was to have him as part of the Newman family. Nikki told Daniel (Michael Graziadei) how brave it was for him to come, and Sharon (Sharon Case) agreed. However, Daniel said he was handling it well.
Devon walked up as Nate was looking at Neil’s photos. Nate found it hard to believe it’d been four years, and Devon said he was glad his cousin had come. Devon wondered about Elena, but Nate said he’d come straight from the airport.
Nate found Lily, and he complimented her on the evening. She thanked him for coming on such short notice.
Sharon and Mariah (Camryn Grimes) sat down, and she asked her mom about Harmony and Ashley’s (Eileen Davidson) animosity. So, Sharon explained that Tucker and Harmony “had a moment” when Ashley was married to Tucker.

Abby told Ashley how special Tucker made the evening by inviting Harmoney. Of course, Abby figured her mom wished he’d done something else. Ashley decided to say hello to Devon’s mom.
