the diversity and knowledge that I gained in my 20s that I
still apply now at this stage of my life. It’s also about

Will Sam Bust Nina? Thanks to the substance Nina slipped into Silas’s
drink at his place, Sam is left with seemingly incontrovertible evidence that
Silas has quickly moved on from their recent breakup when she catches him in a
compromising position with his devious wife. Silas is unaware both that Sam saw
him with Nina and that Nina drugged him. Nina, meanwhile, savors her success.
And as Sam continues to investigate into who eavesdropped on her private
conversation with Patrick on the hospital roof and gave damning info about him
to a reporter, leading to his termination from the hospital, she and Dr. Drake
head to Nina’s place of convalescence, the Crichton-Clark Clinic - which just
happens to be where Robin was last seen with a frosty Jason.

prepared to make that sacrifice to nab the true head of the Jerome crime family.
Of course, she’s not exactly looking forward to doing the deed, and the prospect
of getting physical with Mickey is all the more distasteful to Jordan given that
those darn sparks just won’t stop flying between her and Shawn. While she’s
fighting her feelings for Shawn, she faces a more immediate threat as Mickey
does some digging into her past, which may blow her undercover operation wide
open and place her in grave danger. While Mickey is investigating Jordan, she is
busy updating Anna on her progress. When Anna learns of Jordan’s plan to bed
Mickey, she is completely opposed to it. Headstrong Jordan resolves to keep her
dinner date with Mickey regardless of Anna’s reservations - but first, she slips

officer reveals that deportation proceedings against Levi have begun, she is
determined to keep her beau in the country - and livid with whoever busted him
to the authorities. Maxie assumes that Nathan is responsible for Levi’s legal
