Lily, Nate and Devon are in the middle of the meeting about the launch when Billy strolls in to Nate’s condo. They talk about how the music and promos were cleared for the launch. Nate says and Billy asks Lily to talk in private. She’d rather not but he takes her aside. She asks him to focus on the launch instead of his ex.

They get back to the meeting and Nate wants to go bold with the attention they’ll be getting tonight. Talk about their podcast. Lily agrees with Devon and doesn’t want to go into details. Devon takes a call and he and Lily go find some paperwork while Nate tries to get Billy to side with him.

Billy says everything is above his pay grade. Devon barks at someone on a call about the editing that needs to be done.

In Crimson Lights, Amanda asks Imani who she’ll bring to the launch party. Imani thinks she’s trying to get her to focus on anyone but Nate. She looks over at Elena and asks what her sister thinks will happen. She watches Elena yawn. “After all, it’s not as if she has any reason to feel threatened.”

Elena goes to their table and asks after their mama. Amanda says her v-fib is under control. She notes how tired Elena is. Imani admires her. She thinks Nate will understand if she misses the launch party. Elena just needs a nap.

Imani calls it a sacrifice but Elena’s looking forward to it.

At Society, Nikki worries about Victoria not making the best choices. She makes herself crazy trying to figure out what’s on her daughter’s mind. Victor tries to get her to relax but it doesn’t work. She finds it illogical.

Victor wishes he’d wiped off the smug smile on Locke’s face when he told him that there was nothing he could do to stop them. He punches his hand for effect. He fills his wife in on the meeting with Locke. Nikki tears up. She doesn’t think she can let Victoria go.

She tears up. What if Vicky doesn’t forgive them? He has an idea. Vicky won’t walk away from her company. He’ll make an announcement about Adam becoming the new CEO. He says Nikki will stay co-CEO and can rein in Adam when the time comes.

Nikki refuses. She should instead go back to COO and let Adam do what he will. Victoria won’t be able to walk away. They appear self-satisfied with their idea.

Nick knows. They talk about how badly their mom didn’t want him to marry Sharon but  Vicky knew how happy she made him. It was the same with Billy and her. It’s her life. Victoria knows.

There’s no reason to change the custody agreement. She thinks it’s an excuse to interfere. Lily thinks he’s micromanaging her like everyone else. Billy can’t stop worrying about her, especially after what he put her through.

He’s concerned for the kids. Lily doesn’t buy it. If she’s making a mistake, it’s hers to make.

While she doesn’t think he has feelings for his ex, she thinks he’s overly involved. She yells to let it go. He hears her and doesn’t want this to come between them. He knows she loves him. Lily relaxes some. Billy will listen to her. They both know he’d be a fool not to. The team pat each other on the back before they take off to get ready for the party.

It’s everything Lily and Devon wanted. He complains about he and Devon not sharing the same focus. He wants to show how innovative they are and Devon and Lily are more conservative.

Imani sides with Nate and Billy just goes along with the others. Amanda watches from nearby, seething.
