Fans know Billy has been struggling with deep mental health issues, especially when it comes to his identity. The talk with Victoria only further proves to Billy that he can’t pretend anymore. Billy does the only thing he thinks is best and walks away.
The one thing Victoria has been fearful of since Billy started acting strange is him leaving. Victoria’s fear comes true when Billy packs his bags. She turns to Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), admitting out loud for the first time Billy is gone and is never coming back.
Amanda questions her friendship with Billy
