Lauren and Michael are hanging out at home with Gloria and Kevin as today's all-new The Young and the Restless gets underway. Everyone is concerned about Lauren's well-being after her brush with death.

Cane tells Jill that the police are done pulling victims out of the rubble
. Maggie shows up at the door and questions Jill about whether she had anything to do with the leak to press about Jack (Peter Bergman) being the police's prime suspect in Ji Min's (Eric Steinberg) death.

Cane asks Maggie if she is accusing his mother of something. Maggie leaves after being fake-cheerful about wanting to solve the case. Then Cane comes back in and tells Jill that he can't believe she leaked the story.

  • Gloria greets Jeffrey at the door. He has brought flowers for Lauren. He tells Gloria that one of these days, he'd like to treat her whole family to dinner to get to know them.

Jill tells Cane that there is something about Maggie that she really doesn't like, but he does not elaborate further on that thought. Cane continues to blame himself for the big accident.

  • Maggie joins Paul and Heather at the coffeehouse, but Heather leaves immediately to go to work.

Lauren can't sleep, so she sits next to Michael on the sofa. She just took some leftover anti-anxiety medication, but is still visibly shaken. She is feeling claustrophobic in the bedroom.

Maggie advises Paul it's time to tell Heather that he's her father, but he's still doubtful. She had a hard childhood, but still grew up to be a strong person.  He's afraid to dredge up bad memories for her.

Lauren feels bad Michael has to babysit her. She is frustrated that she can't control her emotions. Michael suggests that he make some microwave popcorn and then watch The African Queen.

Kevin asks Jeffrey point-blank his intentions toward his mother.

Jill calls out for Cane at home, but he's out having drinks with Heather.  She calls him on his cell. Jill is all distraught and wants to know that he's safe. Cane says he's going to be out late.

Lauren has fallen asleep on the sofa while watching the movie. She wakes up in a panic, after having a nightmare about Paul in the rubble. She thinks it might be a sign that Paul is in some kind of danger.

Michael calls Paul to prove to her he's safe. Paul offers to go over to see her. Maggie says it might be a good idea.

Paul has arrived at Michael and Lauren's. Paul tells her Maggie is having nightmares about being trapped as well. Paul starts to tell Lauren about the mistakes and regrets he has in his life.

Jeffrey continues to speak in veiled subtext about people wanting to hurt innocent people, obviously in reference to his suspicion that Gloria was responsible for the cream contamination.

The dinner wraps up and Jeffrey heads up to his room upstairs. Kevin warns Gloria that she is getting sucked in. Gloria (Judith Chapman) assures him that she is only playing Jeffrey and not buying his charm.

Jeffrey goes upstairs. He has recorded the entire dinner conversation and listens to the whole thing.
