Kyle and Audra have sex in her suite. After, she asks him why they ever stopped so he reminds her she fired him.

They kiss and she changes the subject.

Although she suspects his first instinct will be to say no, she has a proposition.

Before making it, she asks if he’s convinced his father to give him Billy’s job.

Angrily, he says it’s a non-starter.

kyle and audra in bed

Kyle assumes his dad doesn’t think he has what it takes. He’s feeling pushed out of the family.

Why is she so interested in this?

He prompts her to get back to her risky proposition. They have sex.

Once that’s out of the way, she tells him they have no more sneaking around to do. It will be just them.

She explains she might be able to offer him a position at Jabot.

That confuses him.

She’s offering the job he wants and tells him his family only owns the company for now.

“What are you asking me to do?” he asks.

She wants him to join her alliance with Tucker.

audra has proposition for kyle

One way or another, Tucker will get his hands on the company.

He asks if she was playing him.

She urges him to hear her out and admits that McCall offered her the top job.

They could run Jabot together.

kyle thinks this is crazy

He won’t betray his parents. She says he doesn’t owe them.

This sounds insane to him but she thinks it’s an opportunity for both of them.

She isn’t exactly hearing a “no.”

audra tells kyle plan

As they dress, he asks what makes her think she won’t tell his father about this.

She’s sure he knows this makes sense and asks him to think of himself rather than accept crumbs from his family.

kyle audra dressing

He thinks what she’s proposing would blow up his family.

She says they could keep his family dynasty alive.

Kyle points out she’s not family.

She repeats this could be the chance of a lifetime for him and his family won’t give it to him.

audra urges kyle to be selfish

Billy arrives at the Abbott estate and Jack informs him that Tucker’s bonsai had a listening device in it.

McCall is still after them.

jack tells billy about bug

Their sister did almost the same thing years ago.

Phyllis tipped Jack off this time.

That makes Billy suspicious.

Jack agrees but the information she gave them is useable.

billy and jack talk mccall

Part of him thinks she wants to redeem herself since she’s tired of people crossing the street when they see her.

Billy remains skeptical and is sure Tucker is using her.

His brother thinks they need to look past her motivations as long as what she does benefits them.

jack hands billy drink

Billy wonders what hold Tucker must have on her.

Her lies will catch up on her and that must be exhausting.

Jack is sure that Phyllis is trying to win back her children.

That’s to their benefit.

jack listens to billy plan

He says Tucker doesn’t know they are onto him about the listening device and they can use it for misdirection.

Billy is sure McCall would see through that.

billy and jack consider next move

He thinks they should release all the dirt they have on Tucker to show they are not backing down.

Kyle rushes in. His father senses something is wrong.
