At Crimson Lights, Sally and Chloe are in the midst of a debate about whether to take the job Victor offered. Sally doesn’t get why Chloe is not excited.

Chloe doesn’t trust Victor and says, “Because I have actual brain cells that are connected.”

Sally argues that this is a once-in-a-lifetime offer while Chloe knows strings must be attached.

chloe rude to sally

She knows Victoria will want to see her friend go down in flames. Sally calls their current work freelance and Chloe calls it above board.

Sally loves the terms of Victor’s offer. Chloe thinks this is about impressing Victor for Nick’s sake. Sally says that’s a part of it.

Chloe sees Victor having his son’s girlfriend under his thumb. Chloe wants no part of this and walks out on Sally.

In Victoria’s office, Nate reads something Nikki gives him and calls him brilliant.

He likes that the men thought they could bully her and Victoria but they had them eating out of the palm of their hands.

Nikki sneers at the flattery which only makes her suspicious.

nikki sees through nate

Nate apologizes. She’s protective of the family business as her husband is. She’s given Nate the benefit of the doubt and she doesn’t doubt him but Nicholas does and she trusts his instincts that claim Nate has a hidden agenda.

Nikki warns that it’ll never come to fruition. “The house always wins.”

He’s clear. With Victoria in Madrid, Nikki wants to have dinner with him so he can discuss his future at Newman.

Adam drops by Phyllis’ room at the Athletic Club and asks if what Tucker has over her is regarding Carson. She looks around but says nothing.

He thought so. She needs to beat the charges.

Adam finds Tucker a scumbag and if he can help, he will try to keep her out of prison. Phyllis will make it worth his while.

adam has dirt on tucker

He’ll hold her to it. He thinks he found something buried in Tucker’s paperwork that she can put to use which will compromise his control over her.

It’s big.

The PR department of one of his recording labels kept it secret that a major artist slept with underaged girls while on tour.

It came out and the artist was arrested, but not until after the tour.

“Right, right. Because you don’t want statutory rape screwing up your lucrative tour,” Phyllis says. Tucker found out after the fact and had his team bury it.

Phyllis finds it despicable. Adam says he has a timeline and two emails from Tucker to Audra Charles were in the junk mail.

The discussion was about letting the whole PR team go and the singer problem was remedied. They thought their hands were clean.

Phyllis is shocked that Tucker and Audra covered up statutory rape.

Nikki’s doing a hell of a job but that’s what he wants.

nate wants to run newman with victoria

elena eavesdrops

Nikki talks about his track record and her daughter’s and says he can do a lot for Newman, but he’s put himself in a situation that will bring him constant scrutiny.

Elena keeps listening as Nikki threatens to fire Nate if he brings Victoria pain. Elena smiles to herself.

When Nikki goes to take a call, Nate approaches his ex and asks after her. She tells him to stop trying to be civil. She won’t reciprocate. He’s sorry but wants to peacefully coexist. She hears he wants to fall in love with Victoria. elena listens to nate and nikki's talkMaybe Elena should fill her in on his definition of  love which is to use trickery and manipulation.

His games will backfire, she warns and burn him to the ground.

Maybe she’ll be able to light the fire.

tucker caught
