She didn't know about that. She says Stefano rigged the election so Abe would win. EJ's perplexed. "Why would my own father want to destroy me?" Nicole reminds him there's no honor between thieves, reminding him of what he did to John Black. EJ takes the full credit. He was trying to prove to Stefano that he was ready to run his company.

She ignores that and he starts throwing things at the thought of his father pulling his strings. EJ tells her the whole point of the class action suit was to give the investors their money back.
