At the Floating Rib, Felicia shows Bobbie the dirt she found on Janelle Benton, aka Nelle. Nelle was once engaged and her fiancé drowned a month before their wedding during a sea kayaking trip. Nelle claimed it was an accident, but the plug from the man’s kayak was missing. Zack, the fiancé, was wealthy and had made Nelle his beneficiary when they got engaged. Bobbie hates Nelle, but doesn’t know if she is a killer. Felicia says the family believes it, and they tied their son’s will up in probate so Nelle never saw a penny. Later, Felicia leaves when Carly arrives to talk to Bobbie. Bobbie warns Carly that there is a problem, and she’s afraid for Michael because Nelle is dangerous. Bobbie tells Carly to brace herself.
In Morocco, Nina is called off to a meeting, so Dillon and Nelle work on a photo shoot involving several models and necklaces.

She does, and he tells her that her test shots are actually really good and wonders why they need the models. Nelle can’t believe this is her life right now, and opens up about growing up with her father and having next to nothing. She admits that’s why she hated Carly so much, because she appeared to have everything. Dillon assures her money can’t buy happiness, but Nelle remains fixated on the necklace. Elsewhere, Nina arrives at an elaborate tent to meet the Minister of Culture for tea, and is shocked when it turns out to be Valentin. He conned her because he wants her answer about their future and marriage. Nina gives Valentin her answer with a kiss. She tells him that she loves him and wants to be with him. He produces her rings, which he admits to stealing from her office, and puts them back on her finger. Valentin carries her over to the bed in the tent where they have passionate sex. As they lounge in bed, Nina gets a call and is told there is an issue with the photo shoot. The sapphire necklace is missing.
