At Newman Enterprises, Vikki finds Nikki in her office warning she’s about to put to the test. They get on a video chat with Victor’s ally, Dan, (played by Robert Gossett), who tells Victoria it’s not too late to undo all the damage she’s done. He’s believed in her from day one and recalls discussing her skills with Victor, but even the greatest CEOs make mistakes. Nikki defends Victoria, who tells him the deals are finalized so the conversation is moot. He argues she’s made Newman vulnerable and hints of rumblings of discontent in the company. Vikki thinks it’s a threat and Nikki agrees. Victoria puts him on notice that change has come to Newman and ends the call. Nikki’s outraged but Victoria thinks Dan was doing Victor’s dirty work. Talk turns to Nikki’s secret – Grand Phoenix’s Escape Club, which is incredible and exactly what Victoria needs.
