Victoria finds Audra at Newman Media. She asks for Nate but isn’t happy when Audra says that he ran off for couples’ time with Elena.
She calls him sweet and thinks Elena’s a lucky woman. It’s obvious that it makes Victoria uncomfortable.
They talk about Tucker and drawing him away from Devon so that Newman can make a deal to buy his company.
It almost seems like Victtoria’s talking about Nate to Audra who outright asks if they’re still talking about Tucker.
Victoria gets her hackles up. Who else would she be talking about?
She leaves angrily and Audra smiles to herself. “I’ll let Nate know you stopped by.”
In the Grand Phoenix lobby, Nate talks up Victoria to Elena until she asks him how close he’s gotten and what’s going on between him and his boss.
He gets defensive and pretends he has no idea what she’s on about.
She fills him in on Audra enlightening her about something personal going on between the two.
He again feigns innocence. He turns the tables on her.
He thought she understood and appreciated his relationship with Victoria.
She’s sorry for creating tension and thinks maybe she shouldn’t have agreed to go out tonight.
She’s tired. He tells her she has no cause to worry about his professional relationships.
He’s all hers. They decide to go cuddle in bed.
At Crimson Lights, Kyle kisses Summer and calls her lovely. She grimaces and he asks if that was about her mom, his parents or Nick’s “strange relationship with Sally.”
She says all of it and tells him about her run-in with Phyllis.
She has a bad feeling that her mom isn’t letting go of her obsession with Diane.
She reveals that her mom asked where Jack and Diane were and thinks it’s cause to be diligent. Her mom’s acting suspiciously.
At the Abbott cabin, Diane and Jack read books together. Jack notices she’s been on the same page for a half hour.
She has a bad feeling that something is wrong. There’s a storm coming back home.
She feels bad bringing it up but tells him about the strange call that rattled her on the landline.
She thinks it was Jeremy but Jack says there’s no way Stark knows they’re there. Jack says they’re playing into Stark’s hands. She wants to go home to be with family.
In his hotel suite, Phyllis has told Stark where Jack and Diane are. They talk about thinking through each detail.
She has a lot more to lose than he does and tells him there’s nobody in this town who is more resourceful to get what she wants than her.
Stark’s glad to hear it. Phyllis wants to lure them back to Genoa City but says her family can’t be used as pawns.
They’ll make them think the dangerous element has disappeared.
Phyllis comes into Crimson Lights looking frazzled. She wants to talk to them about Stark.
She says he’s on his way to Paris to find Jack and Diane and says he thinks he’s going to find them. Kyle asks how she knows.
She explains that Stark has been pestering her, trying to get her help with revenge on Diane.
Kyle worries and moves to call but forgot his phone again. Phyllis hands it over and he runs.
Back at the cabin, Jack takes Kyle’s call and is filled in about Stark supposedly going to Paris to find them.
He disconnects and the newly engaged couple agrees to go home.
Jack can’t wait to tell everyone about their engagement. They kiss and hug.
Back at Crimson Lights, Summer’s still skeptical but Phyllis explains she’s more important than any revenge. Summer hopes so.
She wants to believe in her and misses her mama. Phyllis misses her.
Summer says if that’s the price for not being disappointed by her, “So be it.”
In the other room, Victoria bumps into Elena. She heard she and Nate were having a night out.
Elena says they were. Victoria wants to buy her coffee as an apology for keeping Nate at the office.
Elena says that’s where he is now. She asks how working with him is going.
Vicky’s smile reaches her eyes as she calls working with him a dream and sighs. He’s strong and determined.
They’re very in tune. She sees bigger and better things in his future if this keeps up.
She continues to talk up Nate and assumes Elena’s proud. Elena is.
Victoria says good because she can’t imagine him being around people who aren’t.
