At Hamilton-Winters, Devon reveals to Tessa and Mariah that they are the only two he invited – there is too much tension between them and he won’t have that vibe in the office.

Mariah can’t trust her. Tessa would do anything to repair that and proposes they start over. Mariah concedes she could never hate her. In the dining room, Ashley runs into Lily, who is being treated to a spa day by Cane. Ash updates her that she’s established at Newman and making radical changes at Brash & Sassy to blow away the competitors. She wants the world to see what Jack lost. Lily learns Ashley plans to utilize her in ways Victoria never would have. Nikki appears, so Lily excuses herself.

Ashley’s taken aback as Nikki explains she and Victor have an ‘arrangement’ and assures Ash she can get as close to Victor as she wants. Ashley has no interest in rekindling anything with Victor, though Nikki insists if she changes her mind, it’s okay by her.
