Billy quizzed Ashley about payments she made to a consulting firm, prompting her to lie. As he sank deeper into gambling, Billy tried to smooth things over with Ashley, who accepted… until he cancelled her payments! Later, she met with her contact, Andrew, to make her payments personally. Meanwhile, Kyle stepped up his plan to bring down Billy, convincing a gambling syndicate to lure in his uncle. The scheme worked, with Billy embezzling to buy into the syndicate! Kyle pressured Gloria to help him obtain evidence of Billy’s thievery, but was stunned and frustrated when Ash refused to expose her brother. Instead, she called Traci, hoping she’d take over the CEO spot. Traci refused, but staged an intervention. Alas, Billy believed it was another tactic for Ashley and Kyle to take over the company and stormed off. After getting drunk, Billy crashed Sharon’s bachelorette party, prompting Jack to toss him out when he got physical with Phyllis. On a downward spiral, Billy was arrested after getting into a bar fight. When Phyllis came to bail him out, he admitted that he’d embezzled from Jabot to support his gambling habit.

Eventually, Matt persuaded Victor that they couldn’t hide from the truth. Understandably, Jack was relieved when the DNA test proved he wasn’t Victor’s brother. However, this left him frustrated that he’d hit yet another paternity dead end!
