At Society, Victoria tells Nate she’s anxious about her dinner with her mom.

He notes she’s been preoccupied. She’s sorry.

This won’t be easy because she’s concerned about her father and thinks Nikki should be too.

Nate wonders if she’s just angry that she’s demoted and wants to get back at him.

She smirks and folds her arms over her chest.

victoria's worried about victor

She denies that. She loves her dad but is troubled he changed the direction he’s taking Newman Enterprises.

It’s not like him to be this erratic. Nate doesn’t find it erratic but she knows him best.

Nikki turns up and Nate swans out for an overseas conference call back at the office.

Victoria relays how worried and mad she is at her dad. She’s surprised her mom isn’t worried about him and his irrational decisions.

Nikki doesn’t see things that way but Victoria thinks he’s incapable of running his own empire.

Nikki rears back in offense. Victoria reminds him of all of the offers he gave to everyone — Nick, Sharon, Adam and Sally, and ripped the rug out from them all.

Nikki scoffs that it’s his company but Victoria thinks he’s flexing his corporate muscle to show he can. To be vindictive.

The waiter takes their salads away uneaten and Nikki tells her kid she thinks she’s taking her dad’s decisions out of context.

Vicky knows her mama knows him best. She must be worried about what the stress will do to him.

Nikki is. If any of this costs her her father, it’s not worth it. Nikki promises she won’t let that happen.

victoria worries she will lose her dad

She knows Victor’s going to rely on Victoria and that he misses going to the office and being productive.

They have to wait to see if this affects his health.

If it starts to, Nikki will come “down on him like the wrath of God.”

victoria worries abbot her dad

At GCAC bar, Adam flashes back to his conversation with his father and begins to laugh.

Sally appears and he tells her he remembered a string of arguments he had with his dad over a few months.

She jokes that for a good time, “they always say argue with Victor Newman.”

She knows his heart is broken. He says you’d think so but he’s glad it happened.

He finally got the wake up call he’d been wanting for years. She touches his head.

“No. You don’t have a fever and your complexion looks good.”

He thinks she’ll be glad he’s going to start being an adult. “Finally,” she says.

He invites her to sit, promising not to read anything into it if she does.

She sits and decides this is a new era for them.

Adam talks about this being a high-stakes chess game.

She calls him out for acting like the old Adam and can tell he’s been drinking for a while.

He admits it. She knows how morose he can get while drinking and asks if he’s eaten.

She’s starved and suggests they grab dinner.

He just “felt like taking over again.” Nate gets it.

It’s his company and he has every right to run it as he sees fit.

Victor fists the air and hopes Nate can help him smooth things over with his daughter.

He needs her there. Nate’s sure that Victoria will see things his way soon and he’ll do anything to help make the transition easy.

Victor’s glad to hear it and offers him a drink.

They drink and Victor tells Nate about how stubborn his daughter is, that she started in the mail room.

Nate didn’t know.

He didn’t want people to cry that he spoonfed her.

She never accepted a promotion until she thought she deserved it.

Nate grins that she’s her father’s daughter.

Victor asks if Nate thinks she deserves to be in power but Nate only wants her to get past her anger.

He doesn’t want to get in the middle. The Newman asks if she’ll retaliate.

Nate isn’t comfortable discussing that.

Back at the ranch, Victor hugs his baby, Nikki.

Nikki knows but she needs time to process it.

Upset, she texts Nate to meet her there before remembering her dad telling her he’s retaking the reins of the company since things seem disjointed around the office.

Nate appears soon after and tells her he was there talking to her dad earlier at his invitation.

She barks, “And of course you accepted.” He’s just trying to keep peace. She wishes him luck and he let her know her dad expects her to retaliate.

She thinks he warned him but Nate didn’t. Even though he doesn’t agree with how she’s handling this.

That disturbs her since she wanted him to come around.
