At the ranch, Nikki is getting used to the thought of running Newman Media.

Victor knows she’ll do well.

She thinks it means she’s as much of an enemy to Adam now as he and Nicholas are.

Not that she’s afraid of him. She fills her husband in on Audra and their discussion about her sleeping with Kyle. Victor sighs heavily and learns Summer knows.

Victor thinks she’s better off without him. He’s an Abbott. “Like father like son.”

Victor calls Audra a valuable asset but not if she upsets his granddaughter.

The Black Knight won’t have it.

Sharon drops by Adam’s condo and he starts to rant about being ousted tonight.

She knows it was a blow and despite what happened, she’s concerned for him. He’s surprised.

sharon worries about adam

She was frustrated but knows how much his dad’s opinion means to him.

Adam blames himself, letting hubris send him off a cliff of his own making.

He’s in a freefall and unsure what to make of it.

Adam insists she can’t save him this time so why try? She’s the eternal optimist.

He knows he blew it and betrayed her trust.

She calls him blinded by his pursuit of Newman Media.

sharon mocks adam for being sorry for himself

He knows and he’s lost it all. She thinks there’s time to turn things around but he’s not sure.

He’s comfortable on the messed up track and thinks it’s his destiny.

Sharon tells him to stop the martyr syndrome postering.

He scoffs that Nick tells her everything. She ignores that and wants to help but won’t coddle.

sharon says adam plays martyr too much

“Okay, fine. I am my own worst enemy and I feed into it. Sometimes.”


Adam says, “More often than not.” He wants her help. “I hate this self-loathing part of myself.”

He needs to change. He considers working at a low level at Newman Enterprises. He’ll even sort mail.

sharon talks about helping adam with work

That makes Sharon practically roll her eyes.

Adam talks about all his losses recently, like Connor, Sally, Ava… Isn’t it enough?

He wants Sharon’s help. She supports his change but won’t get in the middle.

She’s busy with her own thing. She, on the other hand, refuses to give up Kirsten International.

Again, Adam asks for her help and she finally says she’ll talk to Nick but this better be on the level.

Adam asks for her faith. She goes and he gets a drink in him and with a half smile on his face, he sighs. 

adam admits he's his own worst enemy

Nick finds Victoria back from her business trip.

She says Nate told her that Dad reconstructed the company without telling her. He nods.

She’s furious that she wasn’t in the know and is about to confront him but wants Nick’s take on it all, much to his surprise.

He reminds her she forced a leave of absence on him.

Now she wants his opinion? Victoria asks when he’s going to move on from that.

Her intentions were good, she claims. He doesn’t see it.

She reminds him their dad made it permanent and now made another shift. Nick sighs in agreeance.

nick doesn't want to leave the company

She wonders if Victor’s unstable. Nick disagrees.

She wants him back there but he needs time.

His hurt won’t get in the way of his work, but he still does not trust Nate.

At the GCAC bar, Audra tells Kyle that Nikki’s not sure she’ll take over for Newman Media, though it wouldn’t surprise her if she accepted the role.

It means she’s demoted to COO. He asks if he’s out of a job and hopes not.

Kyle offers to step away but she wants her cake and to eat it too. They agree to pull off a secret affair.

Victoria goes to the ranch and calls out Victor. “How could you?!” He tells her it’s not personal.

She complains she wasn’t consulted and works well with her mama.

After a bit, Victoria calms down. He did the right thing.

Victor takes no pleasure in kicking Adam to the curb.

Victoria knows but says he doesn’t care about the family nor does he deserve their name.

victoria has heard the news

Victor says she’ll do well at Newman Media. Is Victoria trying to deny her that?

She’s not but just wanted a say. “I own the damned company. I make whatever decision I want to make,” he states.

She agrees to let Nicholas return but she’s not sure if he will either way.

He understands she doesn’t want his help with it and she is sorry she was harsh.

They agree it’s good to have boundaries.

He talks about his family again and says this power dynamic usually makes him run.

Sally thinks it might have been right to leave the company.

He should follow his instincts, not what his father commands. Nick’s grateful for her input and they kiss.
