Nick and Victoria are both angry with Brad for not admitting to them that he's buying time by having Victoria post on the message boards on the website to try to find the owners of the paintings. He wants the kidnappers to think that he is looking for the painting, when in reality, he is trying to find a way to locate Sharon. Brad and Nick argue about this as Nikki walks in, yelling at them to stop fighting. She is upset, telling them that Victor has not left a message. The family is in crisis mode and Victor's nowhere to be found. Nick asks Phyllis to leave, explaining his concern for her and the baby, and conveys to Victoria, how he feels that Brad is handling things all wrong. He believes Brad is only out for himself. Brad overhears. Nick walks Phyllis out and asks her to let him look for Sharon alone. He explains he doesn't want her life to be at risk, and asks him to trust her. She agrees, but asks him to be careful, then leaves.
Inside Sharon's place, Brad tells Victoria that he overheard the conversation she and Nick had. He disputes her thoughts, telling her that he loves her and doesn't want anything to happen to Sharon or to JT. He doesn't think they can trust Nick who is a 'loose cannon'. He searches for his cell phone.
On the next Y&R:
Brad promises Victoria that he will 'find a way out of this'.
