Jack holds the elevator for Victoria at Jabot, and they proceed to spar verbally about competing and brag about their latest strategies. After, Jack pulls Ravi into his office and reminds him to contact him the minute Billy accesses their server again – he’s positive he won’t be able to resist.
At the Club, Billy tells Phyllis he booked her a massage in the spa. He takes a call from Victoria, who warns Jack has a new plan, but she doesn’t want Billy accessing the Jabot server again. Billy disconnects. He informs Phyllis he’ll look after her laptop while she’s in her treatment, then calls Vikki back to debate the need to access Jabot’s server. Billy thinks it over, then does it. In Dina’s suite, she flashes to arguing with Ashley about Graham. Ash arrives, and confronts her mother about sending Victor photos of Jack and Nikki. Dina defends herself. Ash returns her mother’s computer and apologizes for accusing Graham of cyber-theft…though he’s still a liar. Graham enters. Ashley begrudgingly admits he didn’t steal confidential files. Graham alludes to them being more alike than she realizes. Ash snipes that she’s honest and trustworthy. Once she’s gone, Graham rants about Ashley spewing lies about him. Dina confronts him about Ashley’s claim that his mother is alive. Graham calls it a twisted tale and reports the woman in the retirement home is his aunt, not his mother. Dina wonders why he kept this from her, and supposes he wanted to keep quiet about his good deed. She complains about her children. Graham says Ashley can treat him however she wants; the truth will come out in the end.
Nick arrives at the penthouse and updates Chelsea that the issue with his checking account was no mistake – it was his dad’s doing. He reveals that this hack has Kevin Fisher’s name all over it; he’s back in town. Chelsea’s confused. Nick relays how he came to the conclusion that Victor did this with Kevin’s help. Chelsea hugs Nick, who explains Vic is taking back the lawsuit money he won from him. They remark on him making nice with Abby and Victoria. Nick reflects that his dad always gets what he wants, but this time it will end differently. Chelsea worries about how much more damage will be done before then. Nick guesses emptying his account is the start of something bigger to make him look incompetent – he won’t let his dad get away with it. “I know what I have to do, and he’ll never see it coming.”
Ashley arrives at Jabot and commiserates with Jack about their issues with Dina and Billy. Jack reads her the fake memo he planted on the server about cutting the budget for their men’s line. He can’t wait to see the looks on Billy and Victoria’s faces when they learn he actually doubled that budget. Ashley is sour that Jack is escalating things. Ravi knocks and reports Dina’s password was used to access the Jabot server. Jack smirks. “Billy Abbott strikes again.” Ash is disgruntled – she hates this! Jack insists they have to stand up for their dad’s company. Ashley is with him. When Phyllis arrives, Ravi and Ashley file out. In the hall, Ravi feels he’s helping protect Jabot. Ashley thanks him for being her rock. Talk turns to Ravi coming up empty searching for Graham’s Genoa City school records. They wonder if he went by another name, but Ash decides they should focus on Myrna Bloodworth and where she worked to unravel the mystery. In Jack’s office, Phyllis discusses the skewed Fenmore’s sales with Jack, who informs her he doesn’t need her help. He thinks Victoria’s company is going under; they cannot win this race. Down at Brash & Sassy, Victoria is irked that Billy spied on Jabot again, but marvels that they’re pulling back on their men’s line. She worries about getting into a financial trap, as Billy’s plan to capitalize on Jabot leaving a gap in men’s products will cost them a fortune. Billy enthuses that expanding their men’s line will be worth it, but they have to act immediately. Victoria decides, “Let’s do it.”
Myrna warns Graham not to get soft, not when they’re so close to paying ‘that bitch’ Dina back for what she did to them.
Billy says to Vikki, “After all we’ve done to beat Jack, it could all be for nothing.”
Ashley holds an Innovator of the Year Award as Jack says, “Your name and Dad’s will be linked together forever with this honor.”
