Neither of them care about what Nikolas wants. Victor tells him this custody move is a stroke of genius.

Spencer says this isn’t about getting his father to fall in line, it’s about getting him out of their lives. Victor is sure it can force him back into the fold.

His great-nephew doesn’t want to use his sibling as leverage. Victor thinks he’s just tapping into his natural born instincts. He has hope for him.
