Audra saunters into GCAC and finds Tucker.

Has he planned his attack yet on Jabot and the Abbots? He looks around.

“Why don’t you say that a little louder?” There’s nobody around.

She thinks there’s a snag but he can handle it.

In the office at Jabot, Jack tells Diane about Mamie’s visit and how cryptic her business is in Genoa City.

Emily appears with a flagged transaction from the financial team. Jack looks confused. There was a large money transfer from their research and development account into one that’s tied to an old lab subdivision.

He’s more puzzled than ever since it was shut down years ago, before Ash came back to Jabot.

His brother okayed the payment. Jack shakes his head and purses his lips.

Phyllis runs into Billy at Crimson Lights and she tells him she lost a job but that she’ll land on her feet.

He thinks the timing is rough since she has her legal fees and insurance payout.

How will she pay it back? She doesn’t think he cares about any of that. Everyone in GC looks at her like she’s the walking dead and tells him to dispense his faux sympathy.

Billy knows that when her back is up against the wall she makes bad choices.

Like Tucker. She says maybe they’re having an affair and she says, “Do I, Billy? Do I,” reminding him of their tryst.

Chance sees Summer at Society. He’s in a great mood and shares that he’s the new chief of police.

They embrace as she congratulates him.

He wanted to celebrate with Sharon but she’s away so Summer offers to buy him lunch.

They sit and he admits he’s nervous. She gives him a pep talk.

At Newman, Nick fills his mother in on what Victoria’s up to, that she thinks their father is incompetent.

Nikki’s frustrated and Nick asks if they need to be worried.

Nikki calls Victor sharp but thinks Victoria will stir up more conflict and that he’ll take on more responsibility to protect his life’s work.

nikki frustrated with everything

His legacy. Victoria loses sight of that. Nikki wants Nick back but he refuses, especially with Nate and Adam. Nick thought it was kinda funny that Adam’s Nate’s gopher.

Nikki urges him to talk to his dad to see how he’s doing.

Victor walks in and Nikki goes so Nick can talk to his dad about Nate and Adam.

He says Adam’s conning him. Victor notes his opinion but wonders why he cares. Nick cares about the family and him.

What if they team up against him and come after him? Victor says he should come back.

When Nick refuses, Victor barks out, “This meeting is over!”

Nikki arrives at CGAC and narrows her eyes at Audra and Tucker.

She gets Audra alone and tells her it’s not in  her best interest to hang out with “that man.”

Audra says they’re just acquaintances. She has nothing to worry about.

They gossip a little about Ashley and Tucker’s split and Nikki admits she’s starting to question Audra’s judgment.

Audra reminds the blonde she ended things with Kyle and asks if she’s ordering her to stop being friends with Tucker.

“Maybe you should present me with a list of all the people I know, so they can be properly vetted.”

Nikki’s mouth forms an O. It’s a bit extreme. Audra’s feeling controlled and wonders why Nikki wants to control her.

Nikki calls Audra’s private life her own. “Thank you,” Audra says, downing a drink.

nikki tries to control audra

Nikki says as long as it doesn’t affect Newman Media. Audra insists she can hold her own with the guy.

He’s been a mentor to her, she admits. This surprises Nikki who asks if he’s still teaching.

She recalls a conversation she overheard of theirs.

audra lies to nikki

Audra covers and says he’s thinking of getting into the music business.

Nikki says she likes Audra and thinks she could have quite the career.

Audra’s thankful and likes working with her but doesn’t like feeling controlled. Nikki wants to be her new mentor.

She holds all the cards. She wants 1.1 million in her account and an extra 20% for aggravating her.

Clever, persistent. They make a good team. She denies they’ll ever be a team.

She calls him a “psychopath who thinks anyone who wants to do good things is a sucker.”
