It’s enough he didn’t trust her but he’s being unfair about Nate. Victor maintains his motivation was quite clear.

She wants her mother to stay away from him, and reveals Devon and Nate think that he’s working with Mamie.

Ashley thinks it’s the same agenda he had in trying to get Jabto for her.

Maybe he wants to oust Jill and get CW for Devon.

Abby wonders if he just wants to focus on his family. Ashley doubts that.

She also has some for her mom and asks her to stay far away from her ex. Ashley promises.
