At the Abbott mansion, the family tells their lawyer that they want to offer an appeasement to Theo. Brittany and Theo arrive. The lawyer relays the Abbotts would like to give Theo a boutique company in Paris that belonged to Dina. Theo says, “It’s a start.” Brittany argues that Theo’s the son of Dina’s firstborn and has been denied any financial benefit. Kyle hollers that Dina had more meaningful relationships with her nurses than Theo. Brittany informs them, “We’ll see you in court.” Jack would like to speak to Theo alone. Ashley warns Jack not to give in. Traci tells Theo he’s making a terrible mistake. He thought she was the nice one. She is, to those who deserve it. Once alone, Theo complains the boutique didn’t mean anything to Dina, or to Jack, or they wouldn’t be giving it away. Jack asks what he’s trying to prove. Theo complains that the family has treated him like a pariah and kept him at arm’s length. He did some stupid things but no one took the time to see his point of view. “If Dina was healthy she would tell you…” Jack cuts him off. He gave him the benefit of the doubt but he’s just another opportunist. It’s lazy and cheap to swoop in like this. Jack warns the offer is off the table tomorrow at 4:00 PM. “You cannot win this fight,” advises Jack as he tells Theo to think long and hard or he’ll look back and remember this as the moment he lost everything!
