Devon and Amanda finish lunch at his place. He wanted to spend time with her. She has to go. She has an appointment with Victor about Sutton’s case. Devon knows Victor wasn’t involved in Richard’s death. Amanda says more information has come up and they may be wrong about that. They found Richard’s day planner and he met with Victor twice before he was killed. He was a low-level accountant. He’d never see the senior CEO. Devon says that proves nothing. She knows but needs to create doubt. He also didn’t deposit any payments. It looks like he was fired in retaliation. Devon is concerned about her going down this road. This will make Victor furious. “I can handle Victor Newman,” she says.
