Marissa Sides With Luca Over Noah
While Noah’s getting flak from Mariah (Camryn Grimes) about Marissa (Sofia Pernas), the latter abruptly shows. Luca (Miles Gaston Villanueva) appears a short while later. Marissa wants the past to be in the past now that she located Ava. Marissa says Luca had an immigration problem and someone called the FBI on him. Marissa thinks it was Victor. Marissa informs Noah (Robert Adamson) about her decision to leave Ava with her adoptive family in Spain. Noah is disappointed and blames Luca; Marissa saying he cares about Ava. She says Luca has been paying for Ava’s schooling. Luca leaves to resolve his immigration matter. Marissa reiterates to Noah that she and Luca thought it was best for Ava to stay with her adopted family. Marissa says Luca convinced Carmen to send photos and updates. Noah still doesn’t buy Luca’s motives, saying he’s jerked Marissa around for months. She blames herself for initially not telling him he had a child. After more doubt from Noah, Marissa says she’s not naive and walks off. As Noah balks at Mariah for pointing out he called the FBI, Victor appears overhearing it.
Later, Luca tells Victor he doesn’t believe he caused the trouble but thinks Noah did and needs to be taught a lesson. Victor agrees and asked Noah why he called the FBI. Victor says he loves Noah but the Santoris have invested in Newman Enterprises and he jeopardized that. Victor says he was acting irresponsible over his obsession with Marissa. Victor exits. Mariah tells Noah that Victor is right; as much as she hates to admit it.
Luca tells Marissa that transparency is key to resolving his issues with the FBI. Luca tells her it makes sense it was Noah who reported him. Initially, Marissa doesn’t believe it, but Luca eventually convinces her. Marissa adds that Noah also jeopardized Ava’s well being by reporting Luca. She is shocked that Noah would go to such lengths to hurt Luca. Luca says he still hopes she can work it out with Noah. She says she may move next door to Luca. He says he will be there for her. Mariah says Noah can’t trust Marissa and thinks he needs to move on. Mariah feels Marissa is using him; he’s just one rich guy in a long line of them. Noah is offended and wants to know who is she to judge him given her relationship track record.
Later This Week: Nick Seeks Advice About Sage

Christian Post reported that the upcoming episodes will “tell the audience more about Nick and Sage.” Sage — with baby Christian’s death on her mind — has kept her distance from Nick due to memory associating with the tragedy. This week, Nick will confide in ex Sharon over what his next move should be. Sage recently announced to Adam (Justin Hartley) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) that she’s moving next door, further distancing herself from Nick.
