Victor announces he has news about Adam’s future. He explains his daughter has threatened to walk away if he offers him a position of power.

Adam assumes that means he’s out.

adam is confused

His father adds that he told his daughter she wouldn’t have a job at the company if she made demands like that.

Adam assumes this is a game but his father says the games are over. His son came up with a plan to support him and the company,.

If Victoria disagrees with how he sees this, she can take a walk.

victor is miffed victoria isn't there

His son is skeptical and wonders what the angle is. Victor repeats the games are over.

The only thing he’s ever wanted is for the family to work together and Adam is as much a part of it as his siblings.

Adam notices his brother has been quiet and asks what his take on this is.

adam asks what nick thinks

Nick is still not happy about how his father has been manipulating them all or about Adam weaseling his way back in. If it was up to him, his brother wouldn’t even be in the building.

Victor can respect his son disagreeing with him but he did all of this for the family.

victor wants everyone to work together

Adam asks if Nick will replace his sister and he will replace Nate. Victor nods to this.

Nick thought his brother was supposed to work his way up from the bottom.

nick complains about his brother

When Adam asks what happens to him if Victoria stays, his dad says they will find something to suit his “proclivities.”

Nick complains. Victor is sick of the bickering and orders them to convince Victoria to come back.

adam and nick ponder what's next

He’s calling the shots and if they don’t like it, they can all walk.

victor reminds them he's in control

Victoria tracks Nate down at the GCAC. He’s a hard man to find.

victoria tracks down nate

He thought they were taking some distance.

She assumes he wants nothing to do with her anymore.

“Be honest. Tell me that it’s over,” she prompts.

He needs time to figure things out after that “clown show” with her father.

nate is still feeling let down

She’s not trying to push but at least they could have a conversation as friends…if friendship is still on the table.

Victoria admits she’s in limbo now too. It hasn’t reached the point of her quitting her job.

He insists that Victor turned on him and she fomented it. She’ll own fomenting.

Nate says that all of his plans were for the best and he’s tired of defending himself.

She admits her life is all a “muddled confused mess” right now and she has no one to talk to.

victoria misses having someone to talk to

She misses all Nate’s “wisdom.” He’s not sure he can be that person for her right now.

He was counting on her to back him up and she backed away.

nate listens to victoria talk about talking

They go to the club and she thanks him for agreeing to listen to her.

victoria and nate talk adam

She fills him in on the chaos at Newman and how Adam is now man of the hour.

They argue about her siding with her brother when she should have been asking what was in it for him.

He’s glad she regrets what she did.

nate gets an apology

Victoria explains her dad plans to bring Adam back in a high position so she threatened to walk.

Hastings says that would be a foolish move. Victor will just think she’s a disgruntled daughter.

Would the situation at any company that would hire her be better?

nate tells victoria not to leave

How long will Victor last as CEO? A year or two?

If Adam is there, he will get the job and she will have handed him the key.

She says that’s good advice but it would turn her stomach to work with Adam.

victoria and nate talk future

Nate asks what she will do then. She’ll have to figure that out and thanks him for letting her bend his ear.

He cares about her and wants to see her happy and successful. Whatever happens between them won’t change that.

She asks what his plans are and he admits he has something big in the works. There are obstacle to overcome but it will be worth it.

Nate doesn’t want to jinx it by saying more but she begs for a hint.

“All I can say is I’m going home. My advice to you is to do the same,” he says.

nate says he's going home

Adam and Nick arrive in time to see this.

nick and adam spot sister

They interrupt and Nick says it’s nice of his sister to give Nate the benefit of the doubt after what he pulled.

nick and adam interrupt nate and victoria

Standing up, Nate says Nick doesn’t have a clue. He urges Victoria to consider his suggestion and leaves.
