At Victoria’s house, Nick asks how his sister is doing with knowing Ashland’s past. She tells him she’s fine. Nothing he told her was news to her. He’s shocked that she is taking it so well since he made so many reveals. It’s a lot to digest. Victoria admits none of what he said changes her love for him. This surprises Nick. She admits she admires him more. Nick worries there are more secrets. Victoria explodes. She’s had enough with Billy digging into Ashland’s past. Nick didn’t come here to upset her, but something about this isn’t right. He’s her brother and gets to worry about him. That’s his job. She knows. He says Billy cares, too. They all want her to be treated well. She knows. Nick thinks if his sister thought about it long enough, she’d be asking what Ash hasn’t told her and why. Victoria admits she has wondered, but she doesn’t think she should worry about his past. She knows him. “But you can’t be sure about that,” Nick says. Victoria doesn’t like that they’ve all caused doubt and mistrust. Nick thinks her doubts mean there’s more to the story than Locke is admitting. “You’re right,” she admits. She has many questions. She asks him to keep it to himself.
Ashland walks in on Lily and Bily arguing about him. Ash asks Lily to speak to Billy alone. She says they can use her office if they remain civil. She reminds them that at the end of the day, they both care for Victoria and want what’s best for her. She goes and Ash calls his woman smart. He agrees with her, which is why he told his story, to take the pressure off his fiancee. He told the Newman’s everything there is to know and that includes Billy as a courtesy. He asks Billy to back off and stop digging. Billy knows he doesn’t hear this word that often. “No.” It’s not going to happen because he knows there’s more to know. It’s a gut feeling, though Ash tells him there’s no proof and he’s wasting time. He’ll only cause more friction. “Everyone has secrets they prefer stays buried.” Ash calls Billy out for being the savior to his villain. Billy shrugs. Isn’t that who he’s made himself out to be his whole life in business? Ash admits that’s true, “You don’t want to make an enemy of me.” Billy asks what Vic would think of his threat. Ash assumes she’d stand by him. He thinks Billy’s on his way to alienating Victoria and thinks Lily must be thrilled with him spending so much time trying to ruin his ex’s engagement. “Leave Lily out of it,” Billy warns. Ash tells I’m to stay out of it. “Or what? What could you possibly do to stop me?” Ash tells the other man, “You don’t wanna find out.” Once he’s gone, Billy flashes to telling Lily that he’s out to find the truth. Lily appears and he shares their conversation. He thinks Ash is terrified that whatever he’s hiding is about to be exposed. “He threatened me.” Lily’s surprised. Billy thinks he’s desperate, which means he’s on to something. Lily tells him to be careful. She can’t discount his suspicions. She won’t ask him to stop digging.
