At the Abbott house, Kyle wants to know what Theo’s doing there. Theo’s there for the willing reading, just like him. Bickering ensues as Kyle explains he doesn’t need to be there, it’s a family affair. Theo thought they were all the same tribe now and recalls the memorial service, but offers to leave. Jack decides Theo stays. When Dina’s lawyer arrives, she explains Dina wanted Abby to read the will aloud. Abby reads that Dina wants to make one last toast by giving away her possessions. Traci is told she deserved a better mother and she, Ashley, and Jack will split the bulk of her estate excluding the exceptions below. Next, she addresses her grandchildren. Kyle gets her extensive art collection, Abby is bequeathed her apartment in Paris, and finally mentions Eric Vanderway. The lawyer explains Theo is entitled to whatever is in the letter. She passes on something Stuart Brooks left to her. Theo opens a box — it’s a fancy pen. Kyle smirks and Theo says, “Excellent.” Kyle thinks he’s putting on an act and needles that Dina didn’t recognize him. Traci explains to Theo that Dina met him after it was too late to change the will. Theo assures her it was never about the money. Meanwhile, Jack pulls Kyle aside to warn him. Kyle doesn’t trust Theo and believes he’s up to something. Later, Jack, Ash, and Traci discuss the animosity between Kyle and Theo, protecting their parents’ legacy and donating to worthy causes.
