At the ranch, Michael asks Victor how Sharon and Nick are handling things. Victor says eventually they'll realize it's in everyone's best interest.

He tells Michael to be sure the SEC don't become interested.

Nikki is at the ranch stable. She tells Victoria by phone that she can handle being there. Victor appears. Nikki says he never rides at night. He says people change. He confronts her about running back to Jack Abbott. She counters that Genevieve is so cold she could freeze mercury. She asks if she's frigid in bed. Victor tells her to go ride. Nikki tells him not to ride where she's headed. Victor grabs her and says he'll ride anywhere he pleases. Nikki leaves and returns injured. She tells Victor she wouldn't have fallen if he hadn't been riding where she told him not to. He looks at her ankle, calling her stubborn. Nikki wonders how he can be so caring and then turn around and do horrible things to those he loves. Victor says he merely fixes things, and now his family is torn apart. He wants to be with her, so why aren't they together? Nikki says the way he loves is destructive - she can't do it anymore. He exits. She yells, "Victor wait!"

Still inside, Harmony asks for one more dance. Neil slow dances with her and they end up kissing.
