Adam arrives and bickers with Kevin about blowing the deal with Phyllis. Adam tells Kevin to get her - she's notorious and that means numbers. Chloe agrees. Kevin sweats.
At the bar, the nun asks Victor his name. He says to call him Christian, but won't tell her where he's from or what he's running from. She asks him about work.

At the ranch swimming pool, Kyle tells Eden that things are getting weird around there. He mutters that Sharon seems to want to boss him around, and then starts kissing Eden. Inside, Sharon welcomes a reporter in and thanks her for squeezing her onto the morning telecast.
At the penthouse, Phyllis and Nick discuss Tim's death. Nick says there will be an investigation, and suggests Phyllis come clean to Michael about paying Tim off. He says if it comes out later it makes her look guilty. Phyllis says confessing to extortion won't make her look less guilty - she can't do it. Nick gets a text to turn on the TV. They see Sharon giving an interview about taking Victor's place. Nick is disgusted. Phyllis says she always knew this is who Sharon was.
In his office, Tucker tells Genevieve over the phone that he's forwarded a photo of Victor at a blackjack table in Vegas. Gen's excited. Tucker warns her not to get sidetracked gambling.

She tells him she's going to L.A. and hangs up. Tucker calls Sharon and compliments her on the interview.
Sharon hangs up from Tucker at the ranch as Kyle and Eden enter. She scolds them for running around in swimsuits and being disruptive. Sharon reminds Kyle he's a guest and tells him to respect her. Kyle says she should respect the man who bought this house and his company. He tells her she's a joke and says he's moving out. Kyle adds that she can kiss the master bedroom and the boardroom goodbye when Victor returns. After, Kyle takes Eden up on her offer to crash at her apartment.

Kevin leads Phyllis to the patio and informs her she's taking the job - he risked his ass for her and this is what he wants in return! Phyllis sputters, but Kevin goes back to the others and announces it's a done deal. Phyllis grins that Kevin convinced her it's a good fit. They look at the website.
