Sharon is surprised to find Nikki on her doorstep. Would Sharon mind picking up Faith from her riding lesson? Something came up and Nikki cant. Sure. Seeing how frazzled Nikki is, Sharon asks if theres a problem. Yes, courtesy of Victoragain.
At the Underground, Victor and Nick remain civil, but just barely. Victor crows about scoring the liquor license for Noah and Nicks bar in Michigan. Clearly Nick still has a lot to learn about business. Noah prevents an explosion by thanking his grandfather for the leg up and nudging him toward the door.
At Brash & Sassy: Billy and Victoria move on from discussing her problems with Cane to discussing his with Phyllis. She suspects a spy at Jabot. Victoria is alarmed. Does she suspect Billy?
Phyllis paces Ravis tiny office and speculates. Brash & Sassys sales spike at Fenmores cant be by chance. She needs Ravis help to get answers.
In Jacks office, he and Ashley consider Graham and his mysterious past. He tried repeatedly to get hired at Mergeron and succeeded only after meeting Dina at a social event. They agree to keep digging. Jack offers what he learned from Dina: that Graham had a tough childhood and both of his parents died long before he met Dina. Their conversation is cut short when Dina marches in, still smarting from Jack and Ashleys reprimand. Jack says its just good business to keep Jabot records confidential. Shes not to share any more information with Graham. Can she live by that rule?
At Brash & Sassy: Phyllis doesnt have a clue, Billy says, and hes willing to log into her account again. Victoria is queasy. She doesnt want him to suffer the consequences of being caught.
In Ravis office: Although Phyllis would love nothing more than to separate Victoria and Billy by whatever means, she want to find the information leak so that Jabot doesnt suffer. Ravi is at a loss. What does she propose he do? She suggests it could be electronic espionage. This is something he knows a thing or two about, and he gets on it right away.
At the Underground: Noah appreciates his dads position and is sorry he has to suffer such indignities. Nick smiles and says its no sweat. Hes eager to move full steam ahead on their project. Nikki arrives and catches them celebrating. Noah pops along to take care of some business in back while Nikki and Nick catch up. He tells her how Victor rode in on his white horse and saved the day againdarn him. Nick puts up with such antics for Noahs sakeand Faithsbut its not easy. Nikki has news that might change his approach. Victor isnt playing fair. She found out he paid Faith a secret visit at camp shortly before she came home.
Sharon meets Faith at the stable and says they get to spend a little girl time together before Faith has to go home. Faith grimacesto Chelseas place. Try as she might, Faith cant think of it as home. She misses the ranch and being able to see her mom and the horses and especially Grandpa whenever she wants.
At Jabot: Dina promises that Graham wont lay eyes on any more Jabot documents. While Jack attends a meeting, Ashley and Dina keep talking. Why do Jack and Ashley continue to judge Graham so harshly? Partly because they know so little about him. Ashley plays dumb. How did they meet? Dina verifies Jacks story. They met on a yacht in Monte Carlo. Ashley still harbors doubts and isnt subtle about it, but Dina is determined to prove her wrong. She tosses Grahams hotel room key on the desk and says have at it. But after Ashleys search turns up nothing incriminating, Dina expects an apology.
At the Underground: Nick is steamed. He didnt tell Faith the real reason they moved from the ranch into Chelseas penthouse (Victor kicked Nick off the property) because he didnt want to damage her relationship with her grandfather. Its true that no good deed goes unpunished. Now hell have to tell her. Nikki reluctantly agrees. Poor Faith. She adores Victor.
Victor barges into Victorias office, where she and Billy are huddled. Billy makes a quick exit and Victor takes a seat.
Ravi taps away on his computer, under Phylliss watchful eye. Billy surprises them. Hed like to speak to Phyllis alone. No problem. Ravi prefers to work from home anyway.
Jack finds Dina in the Jabot lobby. Hed like to discuss a new assignment for her. He sees Nikki approaching . . . but later. Dina doesnt bother concealing her disdain for Nikki. Jack leads Nikki into his office and they commiserate. Nikki hopes his stress has nothing to do with his competition with Brash & Sassy. Heavens, no. He values his relationship with Nikki far too much to risk losing her over a business matter.
In Ravis office: Billy apologizes for overreacting to Phylliss accusations of spying on Jabot. Hed like to make it up to her with a romantic dinner, with candlesthe works. Perfect! she says.
At Brash & Sassy: Victoria reports that Victors advice to be proactive seems to be paying off. Hes pleased. She needs no further advice at the moment, so is there another reason Victor dropped by? A favor. Victor would like to see more of Johnny and Katie. Can Victoria make that happen? Certainly, shell bring them to the ranch.
Nick arrives at Sharons just as she finishes Faiths French braid. Faith is excited about her new do and about the possibility of competing in riding events. Her trainer says shes ready. Can she? Can she, please? Nick and Sharon will have to discuss it, but for now hed like to talk about Grandpa. Faith is sheepish when he tells her he knows about Victors camp visit. She hopes Nick isnt mad at her for not telling, or at Grandpa. Nick takes a deep breath and tells her the real reason they moved to Chelseas apartmentNick had no choice. That doesnt change the way he feels about Chelsea, of course, but he thinks Faith deserves to know the truth. Faith is a sensitive kid and understands. She thanks him and hugs him before returning to the stable to fetch her things.
Dina ambushes Nikki when she emerges from Jacks office. Shame on her for using Jack as a port while shes still married to Victor. Not that Nikki owes Dina an explanation, but she and Jack are consenting adults and what they do is none of Dinas business or Victors. Jack appears at Nikkis side, ready to escort her to the Abbott cabin for a much-needed getaway. Hell see his mother tomorrowor maybe not. Bye-bye!
Ashley searches Grahams room from top to bottom and eventually finds a suspicious document in his desk drawer. She jots a few notes and makes for the door. Graham meets her there, causing her to gasp.
At Sharons: Shes blown away by the turn of events. She had no idea. So whats Nicks new visitation policy? No changes. Theyll just have to keep a closer eye on Victor.
Victor finds Faith at the stable, but shes not her usual bubbly self. When he asks why, she tears up and calls him out for lying and being cruel to her daddy. She no longer trusts Grandpa and runs to Nick when he calls to her.
Victoria and Jack and Nikki have an awkward meeting on the Jabot elevator, but everyone is on his or her best behavior. Hearing that Jack and Nikki are bound for the cabin, Victoria forces a smile, wishes them a good time, and gets off at her floor.
At Jabot: Dina isnt finished for the day. Now she takes on Billy, or more specifically Phyllis. Why do Billy and his brother choose such bad women? She urges Billy to get out of his relationship while he can. Phyllis is aghast.
