He sees how depressed she is and asks what is next. She says nothing.
At Fusion, Amanda calls Jake to meet for dinner; Erica walks in and says she is taking over Fusion! Amanda brings up Greenlee and Kendall; Erica says Greenlee obviously can't be bothered and she won't let her daughter's company falter. She asks what Randi's job is; Randi says she is the receptionist so Erica puts her to work calling newspapers and Adam! She tells Amanda to fetch her a latte! Amanda walks out. Adam arrives and asks what she wants; he believes she is going to tell the world he was behind the tainted perfume. Erica says if he drops the Fusion lawsuit and agrees to pay the settlements, she will keep his part in the scheme a secret! She says he will also fund the launch of a new line of cosmetics. "This company is in desperate need of direction," Erica says! She is worried, though, because the reporters they have contacted so far haven't seemed interested. Adam says they are still consumed by the tornadoes but Erica insists that everything she does is breaking news.

She admits to Binks that she feels disconnected from Gabrielle, like she doesn't fit into the baby's life. Bianca says Reese is the baby's mother, just as much as she is and that is all that matters. She is about to go back to Kendall's room when she sees Erica and tells her about Zach's decision. Erica says they have to get Kendall to the specialized facility; Bianca convinces her to wait. Erica spots the engagement ring and Bianca tells her Reese proposed! Reese catches up with them; Erica compliments the ring. Reese asks for Erica's blessing!
