Billy found himself gambling again after helping Summer out by taking her place in a high-stakes card game. As he struggled with his addiction, he was forced to lie to Phyllis. Later, Summer confided to Billy that she’d burned through her trust fund and was now in debt. Summer eventually shared this news with her mom, which actually brought them closer. Meanwhile, Billy began to burn through his own money… er, Jabot money, by purchasing a company yacht and giving board members big bonuses despite Jack’s warning to be careful with the cosmetic company’s funds. Billy used his own bonus to support his gambling habit. Alas, he lost not only that but the new Jabot yacht in a poker game!
