They wish their kids could stay that innocent. Billy admits he’s a little concerned about Locke still being in town.

He’s worried about her being home alone with him on the loose. She’s sure that Locke will be angrier with the Abbotts and she can handle this. There’s already a security detail looking out for her.

If he needs to go out of town, she’s fine picking up the kids.

He’s not thinking of being a wedding planner, he wants to turn the Top of the Tower into an inspiring night club. Nick asks if he’s run this by his grandfather.

Noah has to put together a pitch before he does that. He promises his father he will be at New Hope until he finds a replacement he’s happy with.

Noah hates that he’s letting him down. Nick assures him he’s not disappointed at all.

He’s thrilled to see how excited he is and offers him his support. They hug.

Nick was excited about him continuing his work, but if this is what makes him happy, he has his support.

Noah has to leave to change for his date. His father is always happy to give him advice.

Nick bumps into Billy, who immediately asks about how edgy Victoria is. The Newman tells him to stay out of it.

Billy thinks there is reason to worry and Nick tells him to stop white knighting for a woman who doesn’t want or need it.
