Victor: Alright. Goodbye.
Victoria: What is this all about?
Victor: I had a meeting with adam today, and it seems that he has second thoughts about staying on at newman.
Victoria: Well, what can i say? I did as you asked. I offered to keep him on as the head of the division, but i can’t force him to stay. And I certainly don’t want a top executive who’s not happy and not fully committed.
Victor: I would like you to smooth things over with adam, alright? Not only in newman/locke’s best interest, but in yours, as well, to make sure that the merger with chanccomm goes smoothly.
Victoria: So, what should i do, dad? Should I tie him to a chair? Lock him in the office? What?
Victor: Try to make him feel welcome and appreciated and respected.
Victoria: Oh, I see. So, you want me to stroke his fragile ego.
Victor: My darling, let me teach you a little lesson. As ceo, you need to be able to deal with the entire executive staff, even with people who disagree with you, alright? And you tell ashland about that, as well.
Victoria: Ashland? Well, where’s this coming from?
Victor: It seems he let adam know in no uncertain terms that he would keep him on a short leash and, if adam didn’t like it, he could quit, he could walk.
Victoria: I’m sure that ashland was just setting some boundaries.
Victor: No one sets boundaries on my children. Do you got that? Not ashland locke, not anyone but me! Now, antagonizing adam is not a good idea, is it? Why the hell would he do that? Did he do that unilaterally, or were you part of it?
Sally: You have gone radio silent.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Sorry. I’m just thinking about the conversation I had with my father earlier. I keep replaying it in my head, wondering if I went too far.
Sally: Should I be doing the work on the chanccomm strategies we discussed for when the merger is finalized? Or are you still considering leaving newman media altogether?
[ Knock on door ]
Jack: I wasn’t expecting you. Come on in.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. Um, I just want to see how you were doing.
Jack: Oh, I’ve been going over the last e-mails I got from keemo, hoping for, what, a clue?
Phyllis: Yeah. I mean, if you want any help finding out who’s sending the texts or even just someone to talk to, I just want you to know that I’m here.
Abby: Well, it looks like we all made it through the night.
Devon: The important thing is dominic made it through the night, and the nurse said that he slept peacefully.
Chance: Well, that’s a — that’s a relief. Dr. Alston said these first couple days were pretty critical.
Abby: That’s when the potential for infection and complications is the highest.
Devon: Well, I’m glad the doctor’s coming by to check on him then.
Abby: It makes me feel a little bit better that he can go through all of this in the comfort of his own home, in his own crib, surrounded by all of our love.
Devon: Yeah. We’re lucky that we had the resources to prepare both of his nurseries with the right air filters and to hire a private nurse.
Abby: Oh, yeah.
Chance: Excuse us. Hey, man, I, uh — I just wanted to let you know that I’m gonna cover the cost for the medical transport when the doctors say it’s okay for him to go over to your place. I, uh — I know you’re gonna want him over there as soon as possible.
Devon: Yeah, I appreciate that. You don’t have to do that, though.
Chance: No. I want to. It’s not about the money, and, you know, we’re in this together. You were able to give dominic that amazing gift by being able to donate, so it’s the — it’s the least I can do, right?
Devon: Yeah, but I mean you know that’s all about biology.
Chance: I know. I see how much you love our son and that you’d do anything for him. I’m really grateful for that. I am. And I hope you know I’m gonna do the same.
[ Knock on door ]
Devon: Of course.
Chance: Hey. Come on in.
Abby: Dr. Alston. Nate. Thank you so much for coming by. Dominic is up in his nursery if you want to head up there. We are so eager to make sure his recovery is going according to plan.
Nate: We’ll let you know soon.
Abby: Thank you. Hi, I’m karen.
provided by… doesn’t your family deserve the best?
Victoria: I can only imagine how adam characterized his conversation with my husband. And, yes, I was very aware of it. I showed up in the middle, and i heard more than enough.
Victor: So, are you denying that ashland reined in adam’s authority at every turn?
Victoria: Adam was testing his boundaries, and ashland let him know exactly what those boundaries would be. Adam would have autonomy within reason, but ultimately he would answer to ashland and me. And as far as adam being micro-managed, I signed off on his first major decision since the acquisition was announced.
Victor: You mean hiring that woman as coo — spectra.
Victoria: A very questionable decision, at best. So, what is the problem, dad?
Victor: The problem is that ashland is showing a degree of disrespect for adam that I don’t like.
Victoria: And that surprises you?
Victor: Have you forgotten that adam prevented your wedding from blowing up, that, although you had differences, he came to your side? He helped you and your husband have a great wedding in tuscany. Have you forgotten that?
Victoria: That doesn’t justify giving adam a free pass. And, yes, I am very happy that my wedding wasn’t derailed, but we both know why he did that. He did that because he wanted to prove his loyalty to you. And he was duly rewarded for that. I did as you asked. I kept him on as head of the division. Which, by the way, will be a much larger division once this merger goes through. But adam had to go crying back to daddy because his little feelings were hurt.
Victor: That’s not what happened.
Victoria: Honestly, dad, I know that my brother’s trying to stir up trouble.
Victor: Where’d you hear that?
Victoria: I don’t have to hear it. I know it. Now that he’s gonna be back at newman media, he’s probably looking around, remembering when he ran the whole place. He’s probably getting the itch again. I mean, it is adam that we’re talking about here. People wouldn’t be very surprised, would they?
Victor: I want you to smooth things over with adam, alright? Don’t you look for trouble where there is none. Make this work. For the good of the company, i want you to make your brother feel welcome.
Adam: Do you remember when we were talking in bed yesterday? I, uh — I found myself opening up to you about my father. And, surprisingly, you said all the things that I was feeling but I couldn’t quite articulate. That my dad asking me to spy on ashland undermined everything that I was trying to accomplish, as if my position there was contingent on me doing his bidding and not on the merit.
Sally: Yeah, as far as I’m concerned, he was way out of line.
Adam: Well, lying there with you and seeing it clearly through your eyes, I was filled with this — this righteous anger. I mean, the way that you nailed it, it made me realize all the things that I wanted to say to my father — and i did say to him.
Sally: And now you’re wondering if I steered you in an entirely wrong direction? Do you feel like I led you to do and say things that you now regret?
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Chance: Look, I know you’re worried about dominic, and trust me — I am worried, too. And I hate that I haven’t been fully there for him while I’m dealing with everything that I’m dealing with. And I’m done trying to convince myself that I can manage this all by myself because I can’T.
Abby: It just took you some time to realize that you need professional help. But now that you’ve made the decision, you’re gonna get it.
Chance: [ Sighs ] I just pray to god that our little boy’s okay.
Devon: He’s gonna be okay. He has to be.
Amanda: Listen to me. That boy is a fighter. Okay? Just like his dad. And he has been from the very moment he was born. And now he has a part of you inside of him, helping him fight this blood disorder, okay?
Devon: I just hope it’s enough.
Nate: [ Sighs ] You can relax. It’s good news.
Abby: [ Exhales heavily ]
Dr. Alston: Dominic is doing extremely well. His vitals are stable, no sign of infection. I’ve taken a few cultures to be sure, but he’s gonna make it through this just fine.
Abby: [ Laughs ]
Devon: [ Chuckles ]
Abby: [ Sighs, laughs ]
Devon: Ah. [ Chuckles ]
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Jack: “How many times do i have to tell you to leave me alone? I don’t want anything more to do with you. I will never forgive you for hiding my mother’s illness from me. You are nothing to me.”
[ Tablet thuds ]
Phyllis: You know that’s just his pain and loss. That’s just his way of lashing out at you.
Jack: I’ve reached out to him so many different times in so many ways. He never responded.
Phyllis: Listen, I know you rejected this idea before, but, I mean, don’t you think there’s a chance that it might be keemo sending these texts? You know, maybe he wants to make amends, he wants to reconnect with you in some sort of way. I mean, if it is him… don’t you want to find out?
Jack: I’m almost afraid to hope. But, yeah. God, yeah, I want to know.
Dr. Alston: I’ve shared all this information with the nurse. We’ll be checking for any signs of infection. And of course we’ll also be on the lookout for side effects and other problems that might arise. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.
Abby: [ Sighs ] I’m sure i will have a million, but right now I’m just feeling thankful and relieved.
Devon: Yeah. I know we all are. Thank you very much, dr. Alston.
Chance: Yeah, we really appreciate everything you’ve done for dom.
Abby: Oh, my god.
Chance: [ Chuckles ]
Abby: Can you believe it? I mean, she said he’s doing extremely well, right?
Devon: Yeah, yeah, she did say it. Let’s go see him.
Chance: Absolutely. Come on.
Nate: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hey. Remember, you have to be very careful of the potential for infection, especially this early in dominic’s recovery. You need to take every precaution when you’re in that room. And limit your visits, okay?
Abby: Right. We understand. Thank you.
Chance: Okay, well, uh, why don’t you go first, mom?
Nate: I got to say, you all make quite the team, the way you came together when you heard the news, three parents working together for the welfare of their child. That’s a beautiful thing.
[ Door opens ]
Nikki: Hi, darling.
Victor: Hi, sweetheart.
Nikki: I was going to ask you to join me for a bite, but it doesn’t seem like you’re in the mood. What’s going on? Was it your conversation with victoria? I just saw her leaving.
Victor: Yeah, I just heard some rather alarming news before victoria arrived… about ashland locke.
Nikki: Oh, victor, come on! You are digging into that poor man’s life again?
Victor: Sweetheart, i wouldn’t do so if I wasn’t given reason, okay?
Nikki: I just don’t understand. So he contributed to a clinic that developed a treatment that could extend his life. What is so alarming about that?
Victor: Fasten your seatbelt.
Nikki: Alright. What is it?
Victor: Michael baldwin just sent me an interview with a peruvian doctor who testified that ashland locke paid a substantial amount of money to have his medical record falsified. He didn’t have cancer.
Ashland: What is going on down there? Well, I don’t care. Just find that damn doctor before he does any more damage. No — how in the hell could you allow this to happen?
Victoria: Allow what to happen? If you have copd, ask your doctor about breztri.
Elena: So, you both ended up staying over at abby and chance’s?
Devon: Yeah. We didn’t sleep very much, though. We just stayed up all night listening for that baby monitor.
Amanda: I don’t think we would have gotten any sleep, even if we did go home.
Nate: You should have seen their tired and nervous faces when dr. Alston and I got there.
Devon: I had never been so worried.
Nate: Yeah, but you should have seen the relief when we delivered the good news about how well the baby was doing.
Elena: Well, that’s what i like to hear. That little boy is the luckiest kid in the world. Three parents who are so committed to his well-being? Dominic must feel nothing but love.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Chance: Hey, sharon.
Sharon: Oh, I was hoping to hear from you, chance.
Chance: Yeah. I just wanted to follow up and see if we can meet and talk about finding me a therapist. You know, I was hoping that we could do it today if you have time.
Sharon: Oh, are you sure you want to do it today? I’ve heard that you had a few rough days.
Chance: Yeah, I need to do this right away…for my family and, uh, for my son.
Devon: Hey, nate, I want to say thank you again for having that specialist make a house call ’cause I know how busy the two of you are. So, I appreciate it.
Nate: I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Devon: Well, it’s nice having a doctor in the family.
Nate: [ Chuckles ] I, uh — I guess this is a good time as any to break the news?
Devon: About what?
Nate: Well, I know this may come as a shock, but, um, I’m making a major life and career change. After a lot of soul-searching and long discussions with elena, I’ve decided to leave medicine and go into the business world.
Ashland: There’s a problem with the contract language in the newman media acquisition. It’s nothing for you to worry about. I’m handling it.
Victoria: I worry about every aspect of newman/locke, especially when it comes to this deal.
Ashland: Yes, and that’s one of the things I love about you and that’s one of the things that makes you a force to be reckoned with, but this is a small matter for the business affairs people. It’s, uh — it’s, uh, not a thing. I’m on top of it.
Victoria: You know, I could have looked it over.
Ashland: Really, this is minor. It’s not worth distracting you from the real job you have, you know, of running the entire company.
Victoria: Alright. If you say so, but you sounded awfully heated on the phone. It sounded like it was a much bigger deal than you’re making it out to be now.
Ashland: It’s just a carrot-and-stick kind of thing. You know, sometimes people need to be shaken out of their complacency.
Ashland: Mm. Look, I can show you the language that I’m upset about. I mean, if you want to see it, i could just make a phone call.
Victoria: No, no, of course not, no. I just thought if there was a problem, maybe I could help you with it. But in that case, I’m sure you would let me know.
Ashland: That’s what partners do.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Yes. Uh, anyway, I came to get my tablet. Don’t forget we have that meeting with the chanccomm marketing team about the merger.
Ashland: Yeah. Uh, hold on for one second. There is something we need to address.
Adam: No, you completely misunderstood. Your advice was spot on. And once again, you have proven that you do have great instincts.
Sally: Do you really mean that?
Adam: Look, don’t ever stop listening to that inner voice. You got me thinking. Walking away from newman media gets me nothing. Nothing. It only further feeds into the narrative that I am impulsive and I am reckless…
Sally: Well, it’s not always the worst qualities.
Adam: …And I shouldn’t be taken seriously.
Sally: That would be a mistake.
Adam: Mm-hmm. I mean, look, victoria and ashland — they only agreed to my staying on because it’s biding them time. It’s pretty clear when the merger goes through, they’re gonna do everything they can to push me aside. So I’m not gonna sit around and wait for them to make their move. I’m gonna make my move first. I’m gonna go on the offensive, and I’m gonna make them fail. And I’m not gonna feel bad about it because I’m pretty sure that they’re trying to do the same thing to me.
Sally: Downright machiavellian.
Adam: I am gonna tell my father that I’m gonna stay on and I’m gonna keep an eye on ashland, but I am not gonna do it for his sake. I am gonna do it for my own.
“The young and the restless”
will continue. Up at 2:00am again?
Phyllis: Wow. Look at this. Hao nguyen owned a lot more properties besides this one that you were given.
Jack: How do you know it’s the same person?
Phyllis: I don’T. I did some cross-referencing. It’s just my guess.
[ Keys clacking ]
Jack: Oh, no.
Phyllis: What? Did you find something?
Jack: An obituary.
Phyllis: Uh, okay. Well, you said that your father-in-law died years ago.
Jack: Keemo e-mailed me that he would be taking his mother’s maiden name — nguyen. You think it’s possible he took his grandfather’s given name, hao? You think the hao nguyen we’re talking about here is my son?
Phyllis: Listen, don’t jump to conclusions, okay? Don’t do that. Okay, this obituary — I got it. I got it. Thank you. It’s so generic. I mean, it’s a very common name. There are no survivors.
Jack: Look at the date of birth. It’s the same year keemo was born. Oh, god. It says he died three weeks ago in los angeles.
Phyllis: Yeah, that’s where the texts are coming from.
Jack: Why else would someone reach out to me? Why else would somebody let me go down that path unless —
Phyllis: It could just be a coincidence, jack.
Jack: Oh, god, I want to believe that.
Phyllis: Listen. I’m gonna get all the information I can, and we’re gonna find out one way or the other, okay?
Devon: So, when did you make this decision? ‘Cause didn’t you just become chief of surgery?
Amanda: Yeah, doctor turned businessman? Are you sure you want to do this?
Nate: Okay, let me explain. Being a surgeon was my passion. Being on the administrative side of things, not so much. Turns out dealing with all the bureaucracy is just not appealing. And, look, this is a good thing. You know, my life didn’t turn out exactly the way I planned, but that’s life, you know? And instead of just going along and accepting that this is as good as it gets for me, I’m making a change.
Amanda: But the business world, corporate america?
Devon: What prompted the whole thing?
Nate: Ashland locke.
Nikki: How reliable do you think this doctor’s word is? I mean, that ashland would pay the man to alter his medical records? It just seems so far-fetched.
Victor: Sweetheart, michael baldwin was a prosecutor, one of the sharpest legal minds around. He found the testimony credible.
Nikki: Yeah, but, I mean, who knows? This guy doesn’t even work there anymore probably. He could just be a disgruntled employee looking for money or attention or both.
Victor: I have considered all of that, okay? Let me just say that michael is continuing to investigate.
Nikki: I still don’t understand why ashland would lie about his recovery. To what end?
Ashland: When we decided to merge our companies, I was — I was fixated on cementing my legacy. My illness, the treatment I was undergoing made it impossible for me to make any significant contribution here. I couldn’t be a real partner to you.
Victoria: Well, I knew all that, and I encouraged you to leave it to me so that you could focus on getting better.
Ashland: Yes, and I so much appreciated that, but now, because of the treatment, I feel so much stronger. See, I’m ready to immerse myself in everything we’re accomplishing here. We are building something magnificent. We’re building a powerhouse right now!
Victoria: It’s very exciting.
Ashland: It’s very exciting! Yes! And I’ve been trying to carve out for myself a place where i can make more a contribution. I think you’ve been aware of that. But — but we’ve never really had a chance to discuss it in detail. This is all new for both of us. Both of us have been used to be being the heads of our own corporations, right?
Victoria: Yes. You’re right. The dynamic has changed. So, um, what are you saying?
Ashland: I’m saying that I’ve been — I’ve been running companies my entire life. It’s second nature to me. It’s an automatic reflex. But here — here, because of my illness, all I could be is an advisor, an advisory role. That’s why we set it up that way, with you as ceo and me as an advisor.
Victoria: And now you’re rethinking that?
Ashland: Victoria, this was our dream. And here we are. We’re in love. We have a close personal relationship with each other. And we are working side by side in a company that we created that bears both our names… as equals. What can I du with less asthma?
Chance: Thank you for coming by so quickly. I really appreciate it.
Sharon: Oh, yeah, of course. How’s dominic?
Abby: His recovery is going well. He’s exhausted, but the doctors are pleased with his progress.
Sharon: Oh, you must be so relieved. I know how scary it is when you have a child that’s sick.
Chance: Yeah, well, uh, he needs me to be more of father than I have been lately.
Abby: We just — we really need your guidance on this and someone for chance to talk to. And I understand why you think it should be someone else since you’re so close to the situation.
Sharon: Well, I made a list for you together, a nice list of very good therapists. Um, I think they’ll be a good match, but I’ve put my first choices at the top.
[ Sighs ]
Victoria: What are you suggesting?
Ashland: I’m suggesting that we change my title. Now, advisor made sense when we were first merging the companies. There was little hope then that I could do anything else.
Victoria: Honestly, ashland, does it really matter what your title is? We’re both — we’re both running this company.
Ashland: It will matter to other people, especially when i start taking on more responsibility. Don’t you see that? That’s why I was so upset on the phone before — because that was the legal department. They were giving me a hard time about — about making a small change on a relatively unimportant matter.
Victoria: Well, who are you dealing with? I will call them, and I will explain the situation.
Ashland: No, no, no. I really don’t want you to do that. I need to be respected on my own right, in this building and out there in the world. And that’s what a title does. It will also send a message that I’m not some sickly old man on his way out.
Victoria: Oh, come on. I think you’re making a big deal out of a very small issue. It’s obvious that you’re the strong, smart businessman that you’ve always been.
Ashland: No. That reputation you just described — I lost that because of the illness. I need to get that back if I’m gonna operate a full capacity. I am proposing that we change my title to co-ceo. Now, we can have a provision in there in case something goes wrong, if my conditions changes and I need to step back or, god forbid, step out entirely. But this makes sense. What do you think? Do you have a problem with sharing the work? Do you have a problem with sharing the title?
Victoria: No. I’m not thinking of either of those things.
Ashland: Then I can tell that you’re hesitant. What — what is it?
Victoria: I’m really, really worried that it might worsen your condition.
Victor: Why would ashland locke lie about his recovery? My gut tells me it’s about much more than wanting to protect our daughter.
Nikki: Victor you don’t even know if you can believe the man on this video. Now, I’m not gonna have you alienating victoria by stirring up trouble in her marriage, especially when we don’t even know if this is true.
Victor: Sweetheart, don’t you worry. I’m gonna handle all this with extreme caution for victoria’s sake, alright?
Adam: Hello, nikki.
Victor: Hey, son.
Adam: Dad. Hope I’m not interrupting anything. But I wanted to let you know that I’ve done a lot of thinking since we last spoke.
Victor: So have I, son. Gordan ramsey
Jack: Wait, wait, wait. Stop there. Go back. It’s a memorial website. It’s keemo’s photo. Oh, dear god, my son is dead.
[ Breathing heavily ]
Sharon: I know the idea of talking to someone about these very personal things can feel daunting.
Chance: I guess I just don’t know what I’d say, what there even is to say. I, um… I just don’t think I have it in me, you know, whatever it is a parent’s supposed to feel. Abby’s got it. Devon has it. And I just don’t think I do.
Sharon: Listen, chance, i admire you for wanting to be a better father and a better husband. Trust me when I say these things can and will happen. First and foremost, you have to do this for yourself, and you’ve taken the first step. You know, wanting to get help — that’s a sign of strength. Don’t ever forget that.
Abby: Well, thank you for those words. I think we both really needed to hear them.
Sharon: Sure. Um, anytime you need anything, just call me. I’m happy to help. Good luck with the list.
Chance: Thank you.
Abby: Thank you so much. I’m so grateful for your help.
Sharon: Let me know how it goes.
Chance: Hi. Uh, this is chance chancellor. I was, um, referred to you by sharon rosales. Yes, I was hoping I could make an appointment with you. As soon as possible. Yeah, that’s, uh — that’s great. That’s perfect. Thank you. Look forward to it.
Nate: Ashland and I just kind of hit it off. It all started with me helping him through a bad moment with his illness and took off from there.
Amanda: Literally. I mean, the man did fly you and elena on his private jet to tuscany for his wedding.
Elena: Who wouldn’t hit it off with a guy like that, right?
Nate: [ Laughs ] Very funny. Listen, I know we are the unlikeliest of friends. We definitely have completely different perspectives and life experiences.
Devon: Yeah, you think?
Nate: I kind of have joked about the insufferable aspects of my new job. Ashland took it seriously. He sensed my dissatisfaction ran deep, so when he offered me the job, I thought he was joking, so I just dismissed it. But he never gave up. And he finally convinced me that, uh, making this move could be an exciting new challenge.
Elena: And I think so, too. I’m really happy for nate, and i support him 100%.
Devon: Yeah, I do, too, man. I’m just surprised that you didn’t want to come and work at hamilton-winters since neil already put on you the board. You could be a part of the family business.
Elena: Geez, nate. For someone with no experience in business, you sure are awash in offers.
Nate: Lily also offered me the opportunity to work with her at chancellor industries.
Devon: Is that right? Well, you’re just the man of the hour, aren’t you?
Nate: [ Laughs ] Listen, devon, I appreciate the offer, but, um, ashland got this ball rolling, so I feel like working with him is the best move for me.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] But i want you to understand something right now. This isn’t coming from anywhere other than my pure concern for your health. I mean, I have been going through all of this with you, and I’ve seen you. I’ve seen you trying to present this strong front to the world. And I’ve seen the toll that the chemo’s taken on you, and… I just don’t want you to push yourself too hard, that’s all. Why would we risk undoing all of the progress that we’ve made?
Ashland: Yeah. I know this has been hard on you, the fear, the worry. But I need you to understand something. Although I’m optimistic about my condition… I know the reality. I don’t believe for one second I’ve been magically cured. But I feel better now than i have in a very long time. And I want to live what’s left of my life — of our life — to the fullest extent.
Victoria: But I want you to stay healthy. Can you not understand that?
Ashland: I think it’s the work that’s making me feel better. When I have purpose, I feel more like myself. I feel stronger. I feel in control. I feel like there’s something else here, though. There’s some other thing that you’re hesitant about. What is it?
Victoria: Well, I guess you’re right. I mean, since you’re being honest, I need to be honest, too. This is about my title. I’m sorry. I guess it’s because my father put it in my head that I need to be on my guard because you’re getting better and stronger, as if you might be some kind of threat to me or the company.
[ Sighs ]
Ashland: He’s wrong about that.
Victoria: I know that, and I’m not going to pay any attention to what my father has to say about that.
[ Sighs ] I do want to be partners with you, in every way possible. I do. So…let’s do this. Let’s make it official. I am gonna have the contracts drawn up right away. Okay?
Victoria: But don’t get me wrong. I am still very concerned about your health. But I’m sorry I hesitated. I love you.
Ashland: I love you. And this is going to be the beginning of something very exciting.
Adam: I’m here to apologize, dad. I was thinking about what you said earlier. And you were right. It was hubris talking. I wasn’t thinking about family or company, loyalty. I was thinking about myself and trying to make a point and being right. You’ve given me a great opportunity, and I’m gonna make the most of it. So I’ve decided to stay on at newman media.
Victor: Glad to hear that. Have you spoken to victoria lately?
Adam: No, I haven’t seen or spoke to her today. Why? Don’t tell me that you tried to pressure her to smooth the waters over with me.
Victor: Son… all I want… is to protect my family… bring us all together.
Adam: Just so you know, I’m not gonna spy on ashland for you.
Victor: You no longer need to do that. Let me just say that things are going on at newman/locke that I’m observing very closely.
Adam: I assume this refers to what you mentioned earlier about ashland? Is there something going on with him?
Victor: I’ve even more reason to believe that I am right. But the most important thing is that I can count on you.
Victor: Because, son… all hell is about to break loose.
