Brad doesn’t want Victor to know that he bailed out JABOT. Nikki assures him, she didn’t say a word about his involvement. Nikki says she merely told him she was “on the payroll.” Brad is sure that “went over well.” Nikki says it did “like a lead balloon.” (Brad’s cell phone rings) Connie tells Brad that Victor would “like to see him.” Brad tells Connie he will “let her know.” Brad hangs up and tells Nikki what has happened, that Victor wants to see him.
