Over at Jabot, Brad meets with Nikki and tells her they need to target the mid-west, there's a huge gap in sales there! She looks at the information he is quoting and wonders how he came to have it. He says, "Are you forgetting that you hired me away from Newman?" David comes in and realizes that the documents are "Newman Internal". David declares that they must be destroyed immediately - they could get them indicted! Nikki dismisses Brad from the room and David gloats that she made a mistake in hiring him. Nikki tells him he is over-reacting. Brad is a very smart man, and after all, Victor wouldn't destroy documents like this!
Lily and Colleen are moving in together, and Devon and Adrian are carrying stuff in from the car. Devon takes Lily aside and says she needs to be careful after what happened at the party.

At Jabot, Victoria arrives and confronts Brad about the security breach. She reminds him that they were once very close and she expects honesty. He says personally that's true, but in business they're on opposite sides of the fence! She asks if it isn't slightly beneath him to be spying. He admits to being competitive and vows to do everything possible to make Jabot a success. Victoria says she'll let it slide this time because of Colleen and Abby, but if he does it again, she'll have him arrested! Meanwhile, back at Newman Enterprises, Adam tells Neil that he's found an all-natural line that he'd like to incorporate into the Beauty of Nature line.

"I thought you retired?!" Vikki heads back to Newman and seeks out Adam to apologize. He tells her she put him in a very difficult position with their new employer, who happens to be their father. After he walks away, Neil approaches her and mentions the new natural line Adam wants to acquire. She says she's never heard of them and goes off to tell Adam that Newman isn't interested! In his office, Victoria tells him that if he had came to her first, she could have saved him a lot of embarrassment!
