He tells her that he has his concerns and that he now knows he never, ever wants to have a child. Obrecht wonders why he'd think that since she can see he's good with Jake and may be selling himself short to assume he should not have kids He tells her he may be ok with fully formed children already born who belong to others but he would never consider being a father to his own child. She remarks she' s heard that her niece cannot get pregnant and so she wonders why the subject of wanting to have a child biologically would have come up for Franco in the first place.

Nina will not accept that, however, and declares she has not yet begun to fight. She attempts to motivate her two staff members to pull together and revive Crimson before Julian pulls the plug on their plans although they argue that it's just not cost effective or realistic anymore.

Sonny goes to talk to Kristina about the secret he knows she is keeping from him and from her mom. Alexis and Molly surround them and both want Kristina to fess up. Kristina tells her dad that he has to stop interrogating her. He protests that he does not intend to do that. He intends to help her. She can see that Molly is getting ready to reveal the secret and both Alexis and Sonny know that she's keeping a secret for Kristina. Sonny then tells her that he is tired of her hiding and evading what is going on. He admits to Alexis he happens to know that their daughter got kicked out of school. He informs his daughter's mom that hes been doing some investigating and knows the whole story. Kristina angrily argues that he cannot be prying into her personal life, to which he remarks to her that both her parents have the right when they are paying for her to go to school. He informs Alexis that he's found out that Kristina got suspended for misconduct around a teacher. He believes she may have made bad judgment coming on to a professor and he's disappointed in her for that. However, Sonny assesses, he cannot get away with taking advantage of a student and he will protect his daughter from this perverted male professor. Sonny tells her, as well as Alexis and Molly, he know the way they (male professors) work and knows this guy took advantage of Sonny's daughter. Sonny wont let him get away with it, he assures his daughter, assuming that she was the innocent victim of a male professor bribing and manipulating her. Yet Kristina angrily tells him he does not know what he is talking about. She admits to her dad that she was ready to bribe her professor to change her grades. The professor did not comply with what she wanted and reported her to the ethics board and got her suspended. She cries and admits that she regrets doing such a stupid thing but she panicked with what her parents would think of her if she failed in school. Sonny asks her why she would throw away the opportunity her parents gave her. Yet he promises Kristina and promises Alexis that he will arrange for Kristina to return to school. Alexis protests that she knows (having more experience and knowledge of the world of academia than Sonny). Yet they both wonder why Kristina would not want that if it could be arrange. Why would she not prefer to go back to school? In response to that, she admits that is not what she wants and explains that people who know who they are, what they want and where they are going are lucky. They can make simple decisions and find simple answers. But she does not have things that simple. She walks away without revealing the nature of her personal indiscretion to either of her parents. Sonny leaves and promises to discuss this with his daughter later. Seeing her daughter crying, Alexis puts her arms around Kristina as Molly silently observes. Alexis asks her daughter if there is someone who could help her with her present situation. She asks what about professor Parker, to which Kristina makes it clear she does not want Professor Parker to have any involvement in this. Alexis admits to her daughter she knows the story about Parker doing independent study with her is not true. So, she asks Kristina, what is really going on? Alexis gets a call from Olivia reminding her she is late and needs to meet her at the hearing. Reporters are all around, Olivia urgently reminds Alexis. She gets up to leave and represent her client and Kristina breathes a sigh of relief that her mother is again distracted from her situation.
