John is shocked to learn that Nikki and Brad provided the money for JABOT. Jack tells him that they see it as an investment, not just a loan. They want to be “actively involved” with the company. Jack tells John, they want seats on the board. Ashley says, “Our backs were to the wall.” John is concerned Nikki could be “problematic” because of her ties to Victor. Ashley assures him that Nikki has cut all of her ties to Victor and Brad will be an “asset” to the company. Jack thinks it is difficult to cut ties to “Victor Newman” and wonders if Ashley agrees? Jack tells John about Brad’s non-compete clause and they are concerned about a potential lawsuit. Jack wants Brad to “lie low for awhile”. John feels this is an excellent idea, as the company “couldn’t take an extended legal battle.” He says he understands them trying to protect him but feels he should have “been kept informed.” Jack apologizes but says the whole thing “just blew up”. Ashley feels they all must “pull together” as Nikki and Brad “have a stake in this too.” John hopes she is right. John looks tired and drained heads up for bed. Ashley and Jack talk they wonder if they should have told John that Victor holds their debt? Jack says there is no need to tell him. He wonders about her involvement with Victor? Ashley says it is over, he has nothing to worry about. Ashley says she “hates the look of smug satisfaction on his face” Jack tells her he knows Diane was her source of information about the balloon payment. He wonders if it is truly over for Victor and Ashley? She tells him she won’t “cave in and run back to Victor” Jack isn’t satisfied and shakes his head as he leaves for bed.
Nikki and Brad are reliving the events of the day. Nikki wonders how things went with Victor? Brad says they went “ok” he didn’t let anything slip but feels Victor is close to figuring it out. Brad feels Victor has “no proof.” Brad is concerned about the non-compete clause. Nikki wonders if they will be able to defend themselves? Brad says they will have too. She isn’t looking forward to his reaction when he learns she put up the rest of the money. Brad sees Michael Baldwin, dining alone and goes to speak with him. Michael is surprised to see Brad and tells him all about his new firm. Brad tells Michael about his investment with JABOT and how he and Jack would “like him to act as mediator”. Brad feels if Michael “does a good job, he could have a new client.” Michael tries to tell him something but they are interrupted when Michael’s cell phone rings. Brad tells him to go ahead and take the call. He excuses himself and returns to his table with Nikki. She wants to know what is going on? Brad tells her he is “laying the ground work”. She wants him to tell her. He says he doesn’t want to put her in the middle. He asks her if she is ready to go as he has had a long day. He offers her a ride home; she tells him she has her car. She tells him that with all of this “JABOT work” they will see a lot of each other. She considers it a “business perk”. She kisses him and leaves. As she is heading out, she looks back at Brad taking care of the check but he is obviously thinking of something else. She leaves looking dejected.
