Jennifer calls her amazing for figuring things out for her. Maggie tells her to go see Daniel and tell him how she feels so Jennifer exits. Victor joins Maggie. Maggie notes that it's quiet around there so she guesses Chloe went out. Victor says that's one way to put it as he asked her to leave for good.

Maggie knows it sounds ridiculous since Chloe should be grateful. Victor calls her an absolute nightmare. Maggie agrees that she's difficult but asks Victor to reconsider for her sake.
