Nikki enters Victoria’s office as she’s on the phone with Billy saying, “We’re not taking the high road, this day of reckoning has been a long time coming.” Nikki asks, “What was that about?” She pushes to find out who they’re targeting. Victoria admits it’s her richly deserving younger brother. Nikki gasps, “You’re going after Adam again?” She’s concerned this will blow back on Victor and demands to know what Victoria’s planning. Victoria walks out.

At Society, Abby learns Chance is meeting with Adam. She’s decided to approach Victoria to find out what she knows. He prefers her to stay out of it and laments he’s been stalling on Paul’s job offer because of the situation. Adam appears. He sits with Chance and assures him he didn’t harm Alyssa in any way. Chance knows; he had an agent track her down. Victoria watches them, unseen, as Adam reveals Alyssa’s in Arizona – he planted the bogus lead that sent her there through his fixer, Bobby. Adam explains by the time Alyssa heads to Vegas, the missing man’s widow will have become unavailable. Vikki enters and Abby stops her to ask why she brought up Vegas and Adam to Chance. “Why keep rattling Adam’s cage?” Victoria can’t fathom why Abby’s advocating for him – unless Chance put her up to it. Abby’s insulted. Victoria’s sorry, but Adam has to pay the consequences. Abby warns of the people who could be collateral damage. Afterward, Chelsea appears. Victoria advises her it’s best not to have Connor anywhere near Adam. Nearby, Chance warns Adam if anything happens to Alyssa he’ll come forward with everything. Chelsea and Adam exit, leaving Victoria and Chance to spar verbally. She informs him he won’t want any part of what’s coming. Later, Abby and Chance compare notes. She’s sorry her sister’s obsession is impacting his life. Chance had nothing to lose when he covered for Adam in Vegas, but has since decided he likes the idea of settling down and having kids.
