At the Abbott estate, Jack is happy to hear from Ashley and suggests she order the fish in Paris.

He gets off the line and tells Diane that his sister and Tucker are on their honeymoon and their plans to start a business are on hold.

He’s sure that the war is over and things will work out. Diane is skeptical and urges him to keep his guard up.

Jack loves how protective she is but thinks this war is over. Unfortunately, there’s another on the horizon.

jack tells diane there's a new war brewing

He’s worried about his brother. Recruiting him was a mistake and now Billy is paranoid.

He seems to want to run Jabot.

Jack assures his wife he has absolute faith in her and needs her by his side if things with his brother go the way he suspects they will.

If Billy keeps being combative, he might have to let him go and she will need to step up.

Diane doubts that will happen and if it does, Kyle should be the one to step in.

Billy stops by the Chancellor’s house to see Dominic, who isn’t there.

Abby assumes he’s really there to ask about her mom and explains that she and Tucker are happy on their honeymoon.

billy tells abby he's worried about diane

Billy wishes them all the best and hopes his siblings are on solid ground again.

But he can’t stop worrying about Diane. He’s sure she will be a danger for Jabot.

He tells her about the post-nuptial and how vague it was about her place at Jabot.

He’s started to craft a bylaw to keep her off the board. All he needs is a majority vote.

billy tells abby his concerns about diane

Abby warns him that he could be starting another war.

Billy insists he supports his brother but the company needs a steady hand before Diane starts gunning for his position.

Abby admits that her feelings for Diane have softened, especially since she saved her mom’s life.

That’s news to him but he doesn’t think this proves anything.

He sounds just like her mom did weeks ago and doesn’t want to deal with this again.

abby thinks billy is starting a fight

He keeps insisting this is just about protecting the company.

She tells him he’ll have to count her out of this.

abby tells billy things are good

Kyle joins Nikki at the ranch. She immediately demands to know what the hell he is doing with his life.

She knows all about his affair or “whatever you’re calling it” with Audra and assumes he’s deflecting from his pain.

nikki tells kyle to drop audra

She made it clear to Miss Charles that her ongoing position at Newman was contingent on her ending things with him.

He claims they are finished and flashes back to making out with her and agreeing to lie to Nikki about this.

Nikki tells him he needs to find a way to make things work with his wife.

She needs him to explain how his marriage went wrong. He tells her how his wife chose her mom over everyone else and destroyed all the trust in the relationship.

kyle tells nikki his marriage can't be saved

He won’t change his mind about Summer, even if that means he loses his job.

She’s not going to force the issue, but if there is a hint of unprofessional behavior between him and Audra, they are both out.

She hasn’t decided what position to put him in yet.

His cold-heartedness should be useful for something but she worries that he may have the same self-destructive personality as Adam.
