So my theory that Mrs. Chancellor offed Ji-Min has not come into fruition, but I urge you to be patient...it will come.
HOWEVER, when we last left off, Victor had been arrested but was quickly out on bail, leaving our favorite mustache more bitter and alone than before. And to relieve his ire, not only did he call in the entire NVP loan, froze Nicki's assets, and sent out a nasty settlement proposition in his divorce where not only does Victor intend to take all corporate entities away from his estranged wifey, but also strip her of her jewelry and couture gowns...and what a frolicsome day Noah will have when he finds all of those goodies unused in storage! Meanwhile, as Nick piously attempted to defend his philandering mother, Victor threw down the hammer and fired his prodigal son, as well.
And speaking of bitter and alone men, after Brad's constantly (and frankly desperate) attempts to win Sharon's vagina...errrr HEART, I mean, Sharon laid down the law and broke all ties with Brad in the name of her love for Jack. This was EVEN AFTER Brad forced a wanna-be passionate kiss in a meeting room. This leaves Brad with only Colleen left in his life, and she is uber-preoccupied with her girly-armed professor, but remember ladies: Navy Seals don't cry - they just go kick some one's ass, so watch out!
Meanwhile, the action with Cane and Lily has been heating up like a crock pot full of vomit. After some hot lip-locks, the duo seemed to have decided to "officially" date each other, despite Neil's attempts to thwart the pair...and didn't it seem just a MIGHT BIT SUSPICIOUS when the finalists for the "Face of Jabot" contest were announced, and SURPRISE! Lily is one of the lucky ladies?! Like, really? Lily Winters? REALLY? Anyway, Amber's alter-ego Moira or whatever also just HAPPENED to be a finalist, but everyone seemed super suspicious so we can expect more blondrama soon.
But don't think that Cane and Lily are the only hot new couple around town, as Daniel seems to have pulled the dead squirrel out of Heather's butt and somehow made her a mildy more likable character - so much so that she even agreed to free Jana in some moment of melodramatic altruism...and yet, Daniel has NO CLUE how much baggage he is about to run into...because just as we thought the 20 year old District Attorney was adapting to her new daddy, Paul, then her mom, April, dropped into town just to stir the pot. And unfortunately for Maggie, Paul's baby mommy is a might be more attractive...
And so that's about it - no cat fights, no salacious sex, no fancy dinners at the Colonnade Room...the ONLY thing that left us a bit hanging was new sneaky activity in David Chow's life. We all know he enjoys being Nicki's little lap dog, but first JT witnessed old Chow in a heated debate with a mysterious man at the Athletic club, then Paul saw David FREAKING OUT over the phone, saying, "I don't have the money!!! I just don't have it yet!!!" Leading us to believe that the lap dog's intentions are perhaps nefarious.
My secret sources do inform me that Victoria's wake is not far off - at least we have that to look forward to.
