Victor drops by and Devon appears. Victor says he’s gotten his “greedy hands on Ashley again.” He’s not fooling anyone, either and calls the man a third rate con artist. He thinks Ashley’s taking him for a ride, going through the sham wadding to get back at Jack and Diane.

Devon goes to take a work call and Tucker says he’s wrong this time. They’re in love. Victor knows they bought a company in Europe.

She won’t sever ties with Jabot. She just wants control from Jack and Tucker’s along for the ride. Tucker drinks and looks around before saying Victor might be right but then again, he may be wrong.

He’s got a wedding. Victor tells him to be careful before Tucker goes.

Audra finds Kyle in Neil’s lounge. He’s not going to his aunt Ashleyy’s wedding. He doesn’t like a circus. She joins him, which makes him feel better already.

He notices she’s nervous and asks her to spill. She hems and haws and admits there are certain things about her she’d rather he didn’t know.

He reminds her he has a sketchy past, too. He’s not judging. She isn’t sure she wants him to have power over her. She suggests they ‘go upstairs.’

Upstairs in her room, Audra and Kyle have sex. She tells him she covered up a little problem for Tucker that’s come back to bite her and that she’s being blackmailed into forcing a merger.

She admits she likes drama in her life to keep things interesting but even for her, this is a big mess. She admits Adam’s the blackmailer.

She tells him everything but the part about covering up the statutory rape. She rants and Kyle comes up with another way to play this.

After he’s told her his idea, she wishes she thought of it on her own. They kiss. audra rants

CBSAt the Abbott house, Diane and Jack are getting ready for the wedding. She’s in pink — not black and helps him with his cuff links.

She wonders how Ashley will feel with them being there. Jack feels sick that she’s marrying Tucker but they need to pretend everything is fine.

Diane thinks they should call off Billy. It’s a lot to ask him to play his sister.

Jack wants to wait until they know more about what Tucker and Ashley are up to. Jack vows this will be over soon. He’s got one more card up his sleeve.

It scares him. He’s fighting not to be a greedy bastard.
