Tucker welcomes Sofia and Malcolm into his office. He says it's good to see them together, and tells Malcolm he respects his reasons for quitting. Tucker tells Sofia he'd like her to relocate to Genoa City permanently because he has a big deal brewing with Jack Abbott and he wants her on it. Sofia isn't keen on settling down in Wisconsin, and questions Malcolm's ability to act right and stay put. Malcolm chuckles. Jack walks in to see Tucker. He gets up to speed on Malcolm and Sofia. She steps forward and asks if the gist of his deal is that if he can pry Beauty of Nature away from Victor, he will be running Jabot with Ashley. Jack nods. As Tucker asks Jack how he intends to pull off this coup, Malcolm seals the deal with Sofia, asking her to move in with him. They all celebrate!

Abby is at the Ranch, putting across an idea to Victor. She informs him that as the second-largest shareholder in Newman Enterprises, she has the power to get the company to fund the Naked Heiress. Victor asks, "Really? Is that what you think?" He tells her he calls the shot as majority shareholder, and if she wants to be a part of it she'll have to work her way up. Abby brings up the trust fund again, but Victor shuts her down.

Daniel catches up with Abby in the stables. She complains about her father's attitude. Abby insists her show is about more than getting attention. She says being naked on camera makes a statement about being vulnerable yet totally unafraid. Daniel encourages her to hold on to her vision, but looks around warily.

After they make love she tells Daniel her horse cost a million dollars. Abby suddenly looks thoughtful.

Nikki says it looks like Abby won't be coming, so they tell Nick and Victoria that they are engaged! As they are admiring the ring, Abby rides into the dining room on her horse, which has a for sale sign around his neck. She tosses her robe to the floor and shouts, "The Naked Heiress rides again!" Daniel videotapes her!
