Victoria insists that he has motive - he doesn't have top clearance yet! Besides, he asks a lot of questions! As Victor walks in, Adam declares that anything he wanted to know, he could have found out by going to Victor himself. Victor agrees, and suggests that they consider a former employee. He asks J.T. to continue to investigate. Adam follows Victor to his office and worries that he may be being set up. Suddenly, Nick turns up at the door, so Adam beats a hasty retreat. Nick tells Victor he needs some straight answers and he's not leaving until he gets them! Nick wants to know if Victor has changed his mind about Restless Style. Victor tells him he was proud of him last night, however, he still feels the venture will fail, no matter who runs it. Nick says he looks forward to proving him wrong. Victor tells him he really doesn't want him to fail - even though he's in business with Jack Abbott. They end the conversation on better terms than before. Nick ventures down the hall to speak to his sister, who tells him that she believes Adam is behind the security breach, but she still has to prove it. She claims he's 'power-mad'.

Adam ventures down to the warehouse to see Phyllis, who tries to get rid of him. She says she's very busy and wonders if there is a specific reason he came. He smiles that he just wanted to congratulate her. She tightly adds, "And Nick." Adam says, "Yes, of course, but he's not here." Adam irritates her by remarking on how she protects Nick from bad press. Suddenly Nick comes in and Adam makes his exit as Phyllis embraces her husband. Nick says it was cool of Adam to come down, and Phyllis hides her real feelings about it. Adam heads back to Newman and confronts Victoria. He asks how she could be so threatened by him that she accuses him of hacking into their own system. She says she believes he did it. He counters that maybe she did it to set him up. Next, J.T. calls Adam in to ask him some questions. Adam is defensive at first, but then cools off. Down the hall, Sabrina ventures into Victor's office and tells him what a delight her time in Genoa City has been. She gives him some books and they move toward the door. As they say goodbye she hesitantly places a kiss on his lips. Outside the office, Adam watches. Back at the warehouse, Phyllis and Nick discuss his visit to Victor and how Adam seems more like their father than Nick does. Nick then takes a call from "House of Milan" who have decided to take out a huge ad. They are all smiles. Meanwhile, back at Newman, J.T. tells Victoria that he doesn't believe Adam is behind the breach. When he wonders who could have benefited from the stolen information - Victoria immediately thinks of Brad!
