Abe admits he'd like to see more black owned businesses. Paulina suggests more inclusivity and says she has an idea of how to accomplish that. Paulina talks about all the jobs it would create and positive attention to Salem. Paulina remarks that up until now, Salem has mostly been known for murders, scandals, and a high divorce rate. Abe calls that unfair. Paulina feels they could make it a model for other towns. Abe says it sounds like a solid plan.

Lani says there was an incident. Chanel repeats that it's nothing but Theo wants to know. Lani then informs Theo that Paulina cut off Chanel's credit cards. Theo asks if Chanel being broke is why she wanted to move back to South Africa with him and live with him. Chanel says of course not.
