Brittany's grief over Bobby's death turned to rage as she talked to J.T. and Jill. She felt like Bobby had lied to her and left her without knowing where to turn next. While Jill went upstairs to keep an eye on the baby, J.T. told Brittany that Bobby had done his best to take care of his family. And he'd also gotten J.T.'s promise to take care of her. Brittany said that she couldn't ask him to do any more, and J.T. reminded her that they were friends forever. As he held her in his arms, Mac came home and saw them embracing on the sofa.
Victoria and Sharon talked after the spokesmodel auditions. When Victoria complimented Sharon on how well she'd done, Sharon said that it had helped to have Nick there lending his support. Victoria wasn't buying it and said that Nick had hoped to throw the other women off so that Sharon would have an edge on the job. Furious, Sharon said that Nick would never do that. Nor would Sharon want to get the position that way. If she couldn't get it on her own merit, then she didn't deserve it. Victoria backed off of her accusations and Sharon left.
Nick went into the CEO's office and was looking at a photograph of himself with Sharon, Cassie, and Noah when Brad came in. Brad tried to leave, but Nick wanted to talk. He commended Brad on everything that had happened surrounding the auditions right up to the press conference. He said that Newman's usual procedure was to keep the press away until decisions had been made, and when there were reporters around, it was the CEO, not an assistant, who talked to them. Brad said that maybe Victoria had a different way of doing things.
After Brad left, Nick went back to the conference room to find Sharon, but she was gone. He called to see if she was ready to leave, but she had some work to do. Nick said he'd catch up with her later. Before he could leave, Victor returned. They talked about the trip to Greece and how Nikki was doing, then Nick caught his father up on the current situation at Jabot. He then startled Victor by telling him that his family would always come first, but he'd been away long enough. It was time for Nick to come back to Newman.
After making a phone call, Brad caught up with Victoria. She congratulated him on how well the auditions had gone. When he suggested they go out to celebrate, Victoria reminded him that she couldn't have a personal relationship with him as long as he was married. Brad offered her a jeweler's box, and Victoria nervously opened it to find a pair of earrings. Brad said maybe she would accept his gift when she found out his news. He'd decided to go through with his divorce from Ashley. Victoria then agreed to take the earrings, and the two of them shared a passionate kiss.
Disguised as Jennifer in scrubs, Sheila was about to inject poison into Lauren's I.V. when a real nurse came into the room. Sheila made a quick exit and went back to her motel room. She was furious at having been thwarted once again, and vowed that her third attempt on Lauren's life would be successful.
Tom went by to see Gloria after he got out of jail, demanding that she help him prove that Michael had framed him by planting illegal substances on him. Gloria said that she didn't believe it for a minute. Nor would she help Tom do anything that would hurt Michael. Michael was too busy planning his upcoming wedding to be bothered with Tom. Not only that, but Lauren was in the hospital after having some kind of hallucinations. Tom was interested to hear that Lauren had been sick. He told Gloria that either she would help him, or he was going to John.
When Tom went back to the motel room, Brenda/Sheila told him that he needed to get another room, just as she'd asked him to days before. Tom said he understood her bad mood. She'd just failed in her attempt to poison Lauren. Sheila pretended not to know what he was talking about, but Tom wasn't fooled. They obviously should be working together, since he was out to get Michael and "Brenda" was out to get Lauren. Sheila admitted nothing, and after Tom left to get his own room, she said it was too bad for Tom that she still needed him, but he was definitely a threat to her.
At the hospital, Lauren was thrilled when Michael came in with Scott. Scott was upset about what his mother had been through and insisted that when she got out of the hospital, she needed to postpone the wedding until she was fully recovered. Lauren refused to consider it, even when Michael said Scott might be right. When Dr. Walker came in, he told them Lauren had been exposed to some kind of toxic agent. It could have been something she ate or drank, or from the ventilation system in the apartment, even new clothes. Lauren couldn't think of anything she'd come into contact with that was out of the ordinary. After Dr. Walker left, she repeated her desire to get married on schedule. Nor did she want Scott hovering over her. She was fine and he should get back to Brenda to work on their book. Scott finally left, and Lauren put her earrings back on and asked Michael to clasp her necklace from Scott on her.
Scott told Brenda/Sheila about his mother's situation, which she pretended was all news to her. But when she found out that Dr. Walker was trying to figure out how Lauren had come into contact with such a deadly toxin, she knew that she had to get the necklace back before someone found out it was coated in poison and managed to connect it to her.
