Jack says they’re romantically involved and he doesn’t intend on keeping it a secret.

Traci congratulates them. She notices the security detail is missing. Jack tells her the danger is over.

Traci suggests he get someone to tell Ashley the news while she’s in Paris so she can blow up there, instead of here.

They laugh and she goes to a meeting. Diane balks at telling everyone they’re a couple.

She worries about what they’ll say. He’s loved and respected.

She’s not. He doesn’t care about his reputation. He knows Kyle will need time to work through this though. She, on the other hand, wants to take things slow.

He tells her to hear him out and lets her know she doesn’t get to tell him what to do. She’s not trying to.

He wants Adam gone before he can cause damage to their company and wonders how she can disagree.

She knows there’s no real place for him but doesn’t like him taking risks. He tells her not to worry.

He’s laid down ground rules if they do work together. He wants minimal involvement.

And it can’t affect Jabot. Plus, Jack can’t know he was involved.

Summer’s not reassured. He should just let Adam fail on his own. “As he inevitably will.”

Kyle says there’s more to it than she knows. He fills her in on gaining control of some warehouse.
