However, he’ll add he’s ready for the job when it comes his way.

Then Chance Chancellor (Conner Floyd) will arrive and Summer will fuss over his suit, telling him it looks perfect. When Chance goes to the counter for coffee, Kyle will smile slyly at Summer. “Somebody’s got a crush,” he’ll say. But Summer will say it’s probably just her pride at doing such a job helping Chance with his style. “It’s good to see you smile like that again,” Kyle will tell her.

Then Claire will tell Nikki she can now walk around the hospital with staff and she loves the pediatric ward. Claire will wonder what her childhood could have been like. “Jordan was all I had. If I had a mother who loved me,” she’ll say. “If someone had seen me for me, things would be so different.”

Nikki will say it’d be wonderful if they could go back and get a second chance. “But all we have is the here and now, so we have to find a way to break free of the past.” Later, Nikki will be shaken up after her visit with Claire.

Jack will tell her they need to take Kyle at his word, that he’s where he wants to be. Kyle will arrive and they’ll brainstorm about Jabot. But their meeting will be interrupted, when Jack gets a call. “Nikki, are you all right?” he’ll ask. “Jack, I’m in trouble, I need help,” she’ll reply.
