Meanwhile, Nikki (Melody Thomas) struggles with her own feelings, not about that but about both Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Nick’s choices in partners.
She’s worried like a mama bear, that history will repeat itself.
The delicious soapy triangle
Nate finds himself in the hot seat when it’s not just Nick now who knows about what he’s up to with Victoria but The Mustache.
When Victor learns about Nate’s affair with Victoria, he grills Nate about his intentions with his only daughter.
And for Newman Enterprises, given Victor knows about how Nate treated his family business in the past.
Nick starts to grow suspicious of Nate’s true agenda — like father like son.

Ashley’s already been drawn to Tucker for some time, though she’s tried to move on from him.
This time, living with Tucker will force her to question what her true feelings are for the man.
