Kate tells Chelsea that Billie was right about her not being shy. Kate asks why she should give Chelsea a job and Chelsea claims that reading a lot of fashion magazines make her knowledgeable about fashion. Chelsea then tells Kate that Basic Black needs someone who has insight into what young people want in fashion, especially since what Basic Black is currently putting out is too much “then” and not enough “now.” Kate tells Chelsea that she is a rude young woman who won’t get anywhere with that attitude. Chelsea doesn’t understand what she did wrong. Kate points out that Chelsea has done nothing but insult her upon sitting down uninvited.

Abby is surprised that this guy doesn’t know Chelsea and asks if he is Josh as he hands her her two cups of coffee. Josh walks up behind Abby and introduces himself just as Abby accidentally spills some of the coffee on him. Abby apologizes.

Chelsea insists that she isn’t rude; she only says what’s on her mind. Chelsea rudely asks if Kate is going to give her a job or not and Kate chuckles as she replies, “not.” Kate looks up as Lucas walks in and stands up to make eye contact with him. Lucas only shakes his head in disgust.

Chloe reveals that the letter is a letter of resignation and refuses to let Brady sacrifice this on top of everything else he’s sacrificed for her. Brady is using his willingness to resign from Titan as proof that he’d do anything for Chloe. Chloe can’t believe that he’d be willing to resign when becoming CEO of Titan was such an honor to Brady.

Chloe feels better and kisses Brady, now happy about planning their wedding.

Deveraux home:

Frankie laughs off the notion of protecting Jennifer and his family. Max concedes the argument and heads back to the garage apartment to watch the game. Frankie hears the music and looks through the window at Jack and Jennifer dancing.

Jack asks Jennifer if he’s heard this song somewhere before. Jennifer tells him about how this is one of her and Frankie’s songs and suggests that they change the song. Jack tells her not to because Frankie wouldn’t mind her sharing it with him.
