Victor was surprised to hear Nicholas say he changed his mind and wanted the job. Nicholas did, however, have some concerns to address with Victor. He told him he was to stay away from his family—they were off limits to Victor. Victor admitted he should never have been involved in his family affairs, so that concern was settled immediately. Second, Nicholas insisted he have a seat on the board of directors. Victor hesitated at the request, especially since Nicholas' attendance at work was at best shaky lately. After being reassured the situation would change, he agreed and gave him the board seat. Nicholas kept on pushing for more and more and finally Victor put a stop to it. He told him he had no plans to walk on eggshells in his own company, and if Nicholas didn't like it, he might do well reconsidering. He followed up by saying he hoped Nicholas could put the bitterness behind him and make this a positive experience for both of them—after all, having his children run the company was a dream of Victor's.
Olivia made a house call to Ashley and told her she felt her blood pressure was too high, and as a result, had a suggestion. She told Ashley she felt she should leave town in order to gain some peace and relaxation. She felt if Ashley stayed in Genoa City, she would not be able to resist the urge of not working. Actually, it wasn't a request; she said she felt it was imperative to Ashley and her baby's health that she do this. Ashley agreed to do it and broke the news to Brad later on that evening. When Brad came home, he told her he had been to see J.T. and that he really believed J.T. loved Colleen and seemed to be hurting. She was a little surprised, but steered the conversation to her pregnancy. She told him what Olivia suggested and he almost tearfully agreed it was for the best. They agreed Ashley would take Abby and the nanny with her and that she would leave first thing the next morning.
Liz came into the room, calling people's names, but everyone had left. After fretting a bit out loud to Katherine about how everyone was going to take the news she had to tell, she went to go visit Jill.
Meanwhile, Jill was in her office and John was with her, complaining about the impending nuptials. Jill told him he needed to do what she was doing—take the high road and just wish them luck. She even ordered them flowers for their honeymoon suite and signed John's name to the card, much to his chagrin. When he began to protest, he was interrupted by Liz's phone call, begging Jill to stay put until she got there. She also asked if Jill knew where John was and Jill handed him the phone. She secretly told him he was right about Charlotte not being Jill's mother, but not to let on, as she was on her way. A little while later, Liz came into Jill's office, and Jill immediately asked what was wrong.
Laird was fussing over Billy and Mackenzie, when she made the announcement that she had changed her mind about how she wanted the wedding to be. She told them all she felt it might be too overwhelming for her grandmother to have all of the people and noise around her in the condition she was in. They all agreed and Laird promised to make the adjustments necessary to tone things down.
Lily met Colleen at the coffee house and they discussed whether or not Colleen should take J.T. back. Lily told her she felt she should, especially considering how miserable they both were. They were interrupted by Colleen's cell phone—Billy was calling to remind her she was supposed to be with them, and Colleen apologized and said she'd be right on her way. She told Lily she was going to stop by and see J.T. first, though, and hurried off.
At the boutique, Madison walked in on J.T. trying to pick out something for Colleen. She volunteered to try on a few outfits to help him out, which she did. After she was finished, she invited J.T. and Colleen to a party the following weekend and gave him her phone number when he asked if he could have it to confirm if they were coming or not. Unfortunately, Colleen walked up to the door and overheard some of the conversation and misconstrued what she'd heard.
