When he leaves the room, Sharon looks at his cellphone and realizes it was Victoria who called him.
At Jack's house, he rants to Billy about the possibility of Victor winning Beauty of Nature. Billy tells Jack he already won Nikki and is on the road to walking again. Jack says he's right, and asks about Billy's life. Billy says he and Vikki had an issue last night but it's over.
Nikki finds Victor at the Club and tells him the fact that winning Beauty of Nature means so much to him makes her very sad. He points out it means that much to Jack as well.

Sharon tells him Victoria couldn't wait to tell her father about them. Sharon goes, and Victoria tells Billy she's not sorry she did it. He says she sounds like Victor - she's justifying going after Sharon the same way Victor does about going after him. She gets a call that the judge has ruled.
Sofia arrives at Gloworm and tells Harmony she saw her text message to Neil. Harmony says it was about Devon.
