At their office, Victor and Adam read the news about their launch party. Nobody wrote about the ice bucket fiasco, which surprises them. Adam has dinner plans. “You’re not meeting that woman, are you?” Adam asks which one. “That Spectra woman, or whatever the hell her name is.” Adam huffs that he is. Victor brings up the ice bucket fight again and Adam says maybe Phyllis provoked her. He’s not interested in any of that. “You’re focusing on monkey business,” he complains. He should be strategizing about how to defeat Chance Comm. Adam says they’ll talk about it later. He heads out.

Adam arrives at Society and greets his sister and her crew. She says it looks like he met his match in Sally. He nods and says he’s glad she has in Ashland. He goes to sit with Sally and is apologetic that he was late. Sally thinks he enjoys tweaking them. He laughs. “It’s a game.” She thinks she can learn a lot from him. She’s glad they aren’t on a date. She wore her comfy shoes. He looks under the table. “Okay, those are not comfy shoes.” Elsewhere, Nate tells a story about a bride patient who twisted her ankle before the ceremony, worrying the groom.

They toddle off to the restroom and Ashland can see Nate knows how lucky he is. “Certainly do.” Later, Sally talks about her time at Forrester and using their designs in her show. Adam jokes that she thinks she was doing them a favor. She has the tendency to get in her own way, she admits. He can relate. Nearby, Ashland shows Nate photos of Harrison. Nate doesn’t have kids and tells Ash he was engaged once but she died. Ash thinks it makes sense that he’s not squeamish to hang out with him. He thought it was because he’s a doctor but he’s been through his own loss and doesn’t see it as foreign or frightening. The women watch and like that their beaus are getting along. Later, Adam looks at Sally’s design for Victoria’s wedding. He likes it but doubts his sister will allow her to create it. Sally asks why he invited her out. They could have done this at work in five minutes. She thinks he was trying to make someone jealous. He counters that she might have been hoping Jack would find out. Sally hasn’t thought about him once. She was enjoying herself and thinks he has been too. He smiles.
At Victoria’s, Elena and Victoria go get some wine while Nate and Ash talk about Europe. Ash invites them to the wedding and then asks Nate to be his best man. Nate’s taken aback. “We’re still getting to know each other.” Ash says he can size people up fast. He calls Nate kind and brilliant. Nate thinks he has friends in New York he could ask. Ash says they’re work friends. He’s not in that world right now. Later, once alone, Victoria and Ash snuggle and kiss on the sofa.
Mariah returns home with the baby. Abby frets. Mariah explains that she called the pediatrician who said to take him for a walk when she couldn’t get him to stop crying. Abby wishes she’d texted. Mariah’s sorry. When the baby cries, her brain short circuits. It’s probably hormones. Abby was worried since the last time when she went missing, she was kidnapped. Mariah apologizes again. Devon shows up and Mariah apologizes to him that Abby called him. She explains she lulled the baby to sleep with a walk and forgot her phone. “I crumbled under the pressure,” he says. Devon thinks she did the right thing. Everything worked out alright. “This being a mom thing is not for wimps. It’s a lot harder than it looks,” she says, as Abby stands behind the door, eavesdropping and looking concerned.
