Mariah worries about her future. Sharon found baby dolls with hearing aids online.

Teriah talk about aira's ears

This perks the women up. Sharon gives them a pep talk, thinking they will do what they can to make Aria comfortable.

Mariah still has concerns that it won’t work so Sharon calls the fear… “Irrational,” Tessa says, knowing how her wife feels exactly.

Sharon asks them to think of the joy on their daughter’s face when Aria hears her moms. They leave for Dr. George’s office for the fitting with Aria.

At Newman Media, Nikki flashes back to talking about how Victor thinks someone’s scheming against him.

Nikki blamed Adam. Claire appears in the door, calling her name.

Nikki snaps out of it and Claire questions her.

She shrugs that she’s having family issues still.

She and Victor had a disagreement on how to handle it but she’s sure it’ll resolve itself.

She thanks Claire for her concern and Claire looks as though she’s going to burst into tears.

She apologizes and Nikki interrupts. She did nothing wrong. Claire leaves looking miserable.

At the Athletic Club, Adaam hopes Nick will keep secrets about talking to the doctor about their father’s mental competence.

Nick’s snide and doesn’t believe that Adam’s on the up and up.

His past speaks volumes. 

Adam reminds Nick he donated a kidney to Faith and he took a bullet for their dad.

Adam has the scar to prove it.

nick worried about adams plan

He tries to get his brother to see he’s being genuine. Nick wonders how it’ll work and makes sarcastic comments that this won’t work.

How does Adam know him? It sounds unethical.

Adam calls it a last resort, knowing their dad won’t do this on his own. Nick agrees.

adam asks nick for one chance

Victoria goes to Victor in his office to let him know that the deal he gave her is not one that he’d normally endorse. She’s talking about Sharon’s merger deal that was done a while back.

He asks if she thinks he’s slipping. She says no but asks him for clarification.

victoria wants clarification

He counters with another question, asking if she finds him incompetent to run the company. He tries to make it look like she’s the one with a problem.

He has a meeting with his son and when Nate walks in and offers to drive him there, Victor blows up.

He doesn’t need them.

victoria chastized

He can drive himself. He leaves, getting into the elevator looking smug.

Victoria and Nate talk at length about his weird behavior and Nate asks her to act like everything is fine.

She thinks Adam’s going to screw her father over. Nate sighs.

He promised Victor he wouldn’t say anything but he doesn’t want secrets between them.

nate tells Victoria about her dad asking for help

He confided in him that something is terribly wrong and he needs help.

This shocks Victoria. Nate says he discussed going away for help so that there isn’t a hint of gossip.

He’s not 100% on board, Nate confesses when she asks for her dad’s thoughts.

If it happens, Nate tells her she’ll step in as interim CEO but needs to meet with Adam before making a decision.

This pisses off the brunette who stomps from the room in anger.

victoria worries to nate

He leaves the room and Claire’s there. She seems upset but says it’s nothing.

He pushes and she reveals she asked personal questions of Nikki and pushed too hard.

Nate scoffs. He’s sure it’s fine. She’d have let Claire know if she crossed the line.

claire asks nate out

He talks Claire down and she asks him out after work to give her tips on how to get along at the company.

He decides to tell her now how private they are but doesn’t think he can give her more than that.

Maybe they can grab coffee sometime to talk about how to navigate Newman waters.

He goes and Claire grins as she watches him walk away.

At Athletic Club, Nick agrees to “be cool” when Victor arrives.

Nick flashes back to Victoria and him discussing their dad’s odd behavior.

Victor takes a seat and thinks they’re talking about building a powerful empire.

nick tells his dad the buck stops here

Adam and Nick are confused and Nick bites out that this needs to stop now.

They need to talk about his memory which is getting worse.

Nick spills the truth about the ambush, that Adam asked a doctor to meet with them and Victor demands answers. Adam explains why he wanted an outsider to see if he was okay.

victor fakes being forgetful with the boys

Victor needs nobody and the fact that Adam tried to trick him tells him everything he needs to know.

He jumps up and moves to leave when Victoria appears.

He bombards her with questions too.

What’s she there for? She doesn’t trust Adam and wanted to see what was going on.

victor yells at his kid

An argument ensues and Victoria starts yelling about his behavior so Victor tells them they’re all going back to the office. Now!
