Sage first appears on October 28, as a mysterious woman who is following Chelsea Lawson. Sage watches Chelsea as she says goodbye to her presumed dead husband, Adam Newman in a chapel. Sage waits until Chelsea leaves and then she is seen walking into the chapel and retrieving the handkerchief Chelsea left there for Adam.
Sage is later seen with Adam in an undisclosed location. She tells Adam that she anonymously have the hankerchief back to Chelsea. She also tells him Billy has moved in with Chelsea. Adam angrily pushes over a tray and tries to get up, but Sage tells him he has to take it easy since he is still recovering from surgery.
Sage found Adam on the floor and helped him get back into bed. She told a guy that was helping him that his services were no longer required and payed him. Adam asked Sage to help him get back to his family, but Sage injected Adam with a sedative and promised he could see his family soon. Sage wheeled in Constance Bingham who thought that Adam was her grandson, Gabriel, who had helped Adam Newman escape the fire explosion. Adam was so adamant on getting home and insisted that the doctor take the bandages off his face. Sage had the doctor remove them and Adam looked in the mirror and realized he got plastic surgery. Constance claimed Adam Newman did not deserve to be saved. Constance and Sage arranged Adam a large meal in the cabin. Constance asked how it was and Adam (Gabriel) stated it was good but he's not big on the spinach. Constance was astonished because spinach was his (Gabriel's) favorite. Adam pretended to remember and ate some more. Adam kept wanted to leave so quickly and Sage tried to stop him insisting that he has to pretend to be her grandson if he wants to leave.
Sage discovers Adam's half-brother, Nick Newman, stuck in a bear trap in the middle of the woods after he went to his cabin to get away. Sage comforts him and runs back to the cabin to get Adam. They both return and Sage tries to help him but Adam insists on not helping and leaving. Sage is confused, since Adam wanted to be less selfish and asked if he knew him and Adam admit that Nick is his half-brother. Sage rescued Nick and called 911. Adam got paranoid that Nick looked at him fearing that he recognized him, although Sage assured him that he couldn't because of his plastic surgery.
After Nick is taken away in an ambulance. Adam decided to return to Genoa City. Sage tells him he can't and threatens to rat him out to the police. In the end, Adam makes a deal with Constance and Sage to go back to Genoa City for a day provided Sage goes with him. Adam agrees and returns to Genoa City with Sage.

Sage went off on Sharon, who said she was drugged up so much she thought she was pregnant. Sage told Sharon she knew she had a miscarriage, and only told Mariah. She said if Sharon hadn't hid her miscarriage and went to Fairview, Dr. Anderson couldn't steal her baby. Sharon begged for more time to be able to tell Dylan the truth, but Sage refused, and stormed out to tell Nick that Christian was his son. Sage tried to call Nick, but then dropped her phone. She went to pick up it up, and when she looked back on the road, she swerved and crashed.

In attendance are: Nicholas Newman, Victoria Newman, Sharon Newman, Adam Newman, and his wife Chelsea Newman.
"Victoria, Sage wanted you to have a photo that she took of you and Nick that she had framed. She says, "Being an only child, I was deeply moved by the bond Nick shared with his sister. This photo is a symbol of how fortunate they are to have such an extraordinary relationship, one that should never be taken for granted. Since I can't be there to comfort my husband, I'm counting on you, Victoria".
"For Faith, Sage left the necklace Nick gave her on their Wedding Day. She says, "I'm leaving one of my most treasured possessions to the daughter I always hoped to have".
"Sharon, Sage also left something for Sully. The vintage toy car that Victor gave Christian. She says, "My little boy would have loved that car. I want Sully to have it as a token of my gratitude and affection because he was such a solace to me after losing Christian".
"Nick, Sage left the remainder of her estate to you. She also left this letter." Nick opens the letter and read it aloud to everyone.
"Dear Nick, I hope you won't have to read this for many many years. No matter when it happens, I don't have many personal belongings to leave you. Not that you need it but there are 3 things I want to give you. 1 more I Love You. 1 more reminder of our beautiful memories. 1 more thank you, not only to you, but to your family and to the friends who embraced me. They gave me the life and home and I always dreamed of having and I will be eternally grateful for that. Never lose that amazing optimism which got us both through the worst of times. You never stopped telling me we could find happiness again. So here is my final request. Keep telling yourself that now. Because you deserve happiness, Nick. So go find it. Yours, then now and always, Sage".
Michael announces, "The only thing remaining now is a letter. It's addressed to Adam". Adam takes the letter and informs everyone, "It says for your eyes only". He gets nervous fearing that Sage may announce that he was the biological father of her son Christian Newman. Adam apologizes for not sharing the contents of the letter but he wants to honor Sage's wishes for confidentiality. He tells Nick, "I won't say I'm sorry for your loss but I will say I'm angry. I'm angry that she never got a chance to grow old or raise that family that she wanted".
Sage Reveals a Secret to Adam
Adam and Chelsea return to their penthouse and Adam reads Sage's letter. He is shocked by the contents and tells Chelsea, "Oh My God! Sage knew I was Christian's father! She figured it out after he died". He reads Sage's letter, "The way you reacted when Christian died, your grief, it was like looking in a mirror, Adam. I realized you must have changed the paternity test results. I should have been furious but I was grateful. I'm writing now to thank you for keeping this secret and not ruining my marriage and to ask you to never come forward with what you know. Adam, please. For my sake, don't hurt Nick!".
Adam is stunned, "She knew this whole time but she never said a word". Chelsea wonders, "Sage didn't want to acknowledge you were Christian's father until after her death. She wanted that kept secret. But she called you from the car before her accident and needed to talk to you about Christian, so what about him?".
Adam responds, "I don't know. Maybe she discovered something new about the baby? What could it be? Whatever it is Sage wanted to tell me died with her".
Adam burns Sage's letter in the fireplace.
Sage's journal and "ghostly" appearances
Nick discovered Sage had a journal, and read in it that Adam has killed Constance. Nick demanded that Dylan arrest Adam for murder. Adam denied the accusation, and Nick accused Adam of calling Sage a liar. Dylan said they would exhume Constance's body and get to the truth. Adam accused Victor of forging the journal entry as a way to get back at him. It turns out the journal entry was a forgery, and Victor and Chloe Mitchell had conspired to frame Adam for Constance's murder.
