In the G.C.A.C. dining room, Scott questions Kevin about Lauren's past, saying that he thinks Kevin is keeping important information from him. He storms out, telling Kevin that he's not a real friend. Across the room, Michael grills Gloria to see if she's heard from Tom. Michael is furious when Gloria reveals that she gave Tom more money to leave her alone. Tom stops Lauren in the hallway of the motel in time for Sheila to see who is there. Lauren and Tom both demand to know what the other is doing there. Tom tries to threaten Lauren but she leaves before he can do anything to her. Then, Tom demands to know how "Brenda"/Sheila knows Lauren, and she admits that Lauren is her worst enemy. Later that night, Scott arrives at the motel and informs "Brenda" that he is going to find out the dark secrets of his past by any means necessary. Michael sees Lauren at the bar and surprises her, which only makes her more jittery. Lauren reveals that she ran into Tom. At the G.C.A.C, Nikki tells Paul that she is looking forward to her vacation, even though a concerned Paul can tell that something is desperately disturbing her. She says that she worries J.T. might be in over his head with his new job working for Victor. Sharon and Dru brainstorm slogans for the new "Seasons" line, but Sharon reveals to a surprised Dru that they should pitch them to Victoria, since Brad may not be working at Newman's much longer. In Victor's office, Brad trades Victor his Jabot stock for Newman Enterprises stock. Victor exits, leaving Victoria and Brad to celebrate their new partnership. In Phyllis' apartment, Jack and Phyllis make love, then revel in their newfound happiness with each other and that fact that she has a new job at Jabot. Jack leaves for a few minutes and Dru enters, reluctantly begging her to come back and design the website for "Seasons." Phyllis insists she will be working for Jabot, and suggests that ‘the best woman will win.' In Sharon's living room, Victor says he is throwing Nikki a dinner party with the whole family, and hopes she, Nick, and Noah will be attending. Jack is livid when he learns that Victor has traded Brad's shares in Jabot for shares of Newman Enterprises.
