The sleazy tabloid reporter, Smalls, bursts into Alexis’ office with a scoop. He fills her in on the basics of the sex tape scandal, being assaulted by a high-power family member, and leaving the names out until the end. After learning the victims are Joss and Cam, Alexis asks why Michael punched him. Smalls admits he may have provoked him. Annoyed, she tells him that this is why she doubts his ability to report facts. Smalls wants a byline with The Intruder and this is his big shot. He asks if they have a deal? Carly enters and suggests Alexis think twice about that. Alexis orders the reporter out.

Alexis apologizes to Carly for what Joss is going through but feels that would be a mistake not to publish the story. Alexis warns her this will get out, but if The Intruder breaks it then she can frame the narrative and be respectful. That’s more than how other papers will treat the scandal. Alexis even offers to let Joss and Cam speak out if they chose to. Carly hates that Joss must weigh this decision. Alexis won’t do the story if she doesn’t want her to, but someone else will. Carly says it is Joss’ call, and she’ll let her know. Alexis warns her there isn’t a lot of time.

Harmony arrives and gets an update from Willow. She becomes irate when Willow hasn’t been seen by a doctor and takes up the issue with Epiphany at the nurses’ station.
