Devon arrives at Chancellor-Winters to tell Lily he confronted Nate about stabbing them in the back.

He says Nate accused him of driving him to betray them. Lily doesn’t follow.

He fills her in a little more and she disagrees with Nate but thinks it’s worth it to do soul-searching and see if there’s truth to what Nate said about their father.

Devon says okay, but wants to change the subject. Lily tells him she and Billy spoke with Jill who was furious.

Devon gets that. Lily says she wants to go forward with the IPO after they figure out where the other threat is coming from.

Devon doesn’t think it matters.

They’re open to threats. They argue.

Devon is not convinced so they table the discussion.

Lily thinks that the company has torn them apart. Devon says no, Nate did that.

He’s done with Nate. Lily wants to fix it. They wonder who the other CEO is.

Devon still thinks it’s his bio dad.
