At Sonny’s, Nina tells Ava that she had Martin pass on the insider trading news to the SEC. Nina feels it’s time that Carly finally pays the consequences of her actions. Ava tells Nina if she sends Carly to prison it won’t be Carly who pays, it will be her.
Nina rants of course she’ll be the one who pays, she always pays as Carly has come between her and Willow over and over. Ava agrees Carly is a piece of work, but tells Nina to admit the only reason she sicked the SEC on Carly was for revenge. Nina says Carly MO is revenge, not hers. Ava isn’t judging her but tells her if she wants revenge then it better be worth it to her because if this comes out, it’s the end for her and Sonny.
Nina says Sonny will never find out, but if he does, he’ll understand. She says Sonny has sacrificed everything for her. Ava explains that is just it, he chose her over them time and time again. She says she’s learned the hard way that Sonny and Carly have a toxic relationship, and no matter what, will always have one another’s back. She notes if the SEC goes after Carly, she doesn’t see Sonny backing Nina.
Nina says they may not find out, and anyone could have turned Carly in. Ava says it wasn’t just anyone, it was her. Nina suddenly realizes she has just sent Wiley and Amelia’s grandma to jail. She also notes Willow has depended on Carly so much these past few months, and if Willow finds out, she’ll never forgive her. Nina thinks perhaps nothing will come of this, but Ava says the government doesn’t take kindly when people mess with the markets.
