At their place, Abby and Devon talk about how cute Dominic is.

She’s glad he didn’t buy Tucker’s company. Devon’s glad it’s someone else’s problem. He has no regrets. They kiss.

In Victoria’s office, Nate thinks there’s something they can take advantage of within McCall. Nick interrupts and he’s not happy as he demands to speak with his sister alone.

Nate leaves and Nick wants to talk about budget issues.

Vicky thinks he just wants to lecture her. He snaps that he walked in on her and Nate again. “On what? Some chemistry? How dare we?” She says with a laugh.

She tells him Dad interrogated her after he riled him all up. Nick shrugs.

Their relationship is no secret. She says she wanted to share the news herself.

He admits he spoke out of turn but his concern is for the company.

“Audra Freaking Charles,” Tucker says as she greets him in Chancellor Park.

She’s surprised he’s still there and assumes it’s because he’s still pining for Ashley.

“Where is she?” He laughs and thinks either she’s jealous or wants him to think she’s covering intense jealousy.

She chuckles at that and he fills her in on making progress with Ashley.

He puts his hands beside his mouth. “I live in the Abbott house,” he whispers.

tucker whispers to audra

Ashley asked. Audra thinks it’s unrequited and asks after Nate.

She thinks are going well and says she’s being entertained.

He knows she likes being entertained. She says it’s strictly business.

Nate’s hungry, smart, and decisive. The kind of partner she needs at this stage in her career.

She calls him the opposite of Tucker. They got what they wanted in and out of the bedroom.

Tucker thinks it’s a parting of the ways for them. He wishes her well.

“I wish you well with Ashley…I guess,” she says.

He warns her not to get too cocky. Nate has proven he is not above turning on those he’s close to. He kisses her cheek and goes.

At Society, Billy and Jack talk about Jabot and sales that are promising. Jack’s distant and missed what his brother said. He admits he’s hopeful they can clear Diane’s name. Billy’s glad.

Jack thinks he can focus now and asks what he can take off his brother’s plate.

What’s happening? Billy says Ashey may be planning a coup.

Jack’s immediately on edge and Billy explains that she says Diane seems to have undue influence over him. Jack thought she was using an intimidating tactic.

Billy’s only heard rumblings so far and Ashley. Jack asks if he feels the same.

jack shocked about ashley coup

Billy says his brother has always done the right thing and he’s not planning a coup but Ashley is genuinely worried that Diane is going to force Jack to give her a leadership position in their company.

Jack finds that absurd. Billy worried this would be a shoot-the-messenger thing.

He thinks that the rest of the world could be looking at him a little differently since he quickly got engaged to Diane who was arrested and thrown in prison.

Jack agrees it does look bad but he’ll handle it. He goes and Abby appears and greets Billy who is sorry he hasn’t been by to see cute Dom.

They talk about how worried they are for Summer and that Abby worries Tucker is winning her mom back.

Nick’s excited for her to return. He sees the champagne and jokes about her turning the place into a bar. Sharon forgot about it. A mystery person sent it.

She doesn’t think it was Chance since it had a cryptic card with it.

Nick notices paint on the label that kind of looks like blood.

Sharon wonders who the heck sent it and why there was no signature.

She says she has no postage or shipping information.

No mailing label. Just the delivery guy and she never thought to question him.

Nick hopes she won’t drink it. She agrees and starts to find it weird and tosses it in the bin.
