Gloria worried about giving a DNA sample. Gloria told Kevin that if DNA testing ties her to the glove found as evidence in the lab, then she'll spend the first 20 years of her marriage in prison. While Gloria was at the "Extreme Catwalk" set, the technician arrived at Jabot to collect DNA samples. Kevin phoned Gloria to tell her that she should be there to give her DNA sample, but Gloria asked Kevin to take one of the test kits. When William arrived on the TV set, Gloria introduced him to Vanessa, the producer of "Extreme Catwalk." William reminded Gloria that she had missed her appointment to have DNA collected. Evan wandered in, so, he claimed, he could watch Gloria's TV debut. Gloria told Evan that he need not stay and that she was marrying William. Jill arrived on the set and when she met Evan, she immediately realized that there was something between Evan and Gloria. Jill asked William about Evan. Jill relived the moment she and Ji Min realized that Gloria had tainted their drinks with the libido-enhancement drug. Evan later took Gloria aside and told her that he knows about William's fortune. Gloria explained that she didn't have control over William's money. When Gloria witnessed Evan performing a slight-of-hand trick with a butter knife, she promised Evan she'd compensate him well for teaching her how to perform the trick.
Kay held a press conference to announce that she had re-purchased Jabot from the House of Kim. When Nikki saw the announcement on television, she immediately tried to contact Victor. When she was unable to reach him, she became frustrated. Nikki later lunched with Kay and quizzed her about purchasing Jabot. Nikki told Kay that she already knew that she had bought Jabot from Jack. Nikki also told Kay that Victor had discovered long ago about Jack owning Jabot. Nikki alarmed Kay when she told her that she would expose Jack. Kay worried that she would look bad if the truth came out that she had sold Jabot to Jack.
After the press conference, Kay asked Jill if she planned to run Jabot or work for Ji Min. Jill was angry when Kay accused Jill of falling in love and losing judgment. Before Jill could explain why she wants Ji Min to stay, Kay called Ji Min into the office and told him that he is in command of Jabot. Before Ji Min could say anything, a lab technician arrived to collect DNA samples. While the technician swabbed Jill's mouth, Kevin covertly slipped a collection kit into his coat pocket. After the DNA was collected, Ji Min returned and Jill congratulated him for being appointed CEO. Ji Min maintained that had been duped by Jack. Jill asked Ji Min for input on how to handle Gloria. Later, Jill told Ji Min about Evan. Gloria showed Ji Min a bottle of libido-enhancement drug that she planned to use on Gloria and Evan. Meanwhile, at the club, Gloria practiced the slight-of-hand trick with the knife. When Kevin stopped by, Gloria showed him the magic trick Evan had taught her involving covertly exchanging one thing for another. Kevin's eyes widened when Gloria whispered to him that her magic trick might work on the DNA test tubes. After Kevin left, Jill stopped by and served spiked coffee to Evan and Jill.
Paul asked J.T. to take over his cases while he goes out of town to question Jana's high school boyfriend. Paul also questioned J.T. about whether or not J.T. had heeded his advice about backing off from his relationship with Victoria. J.T. responded by saying that he told Victoria that she was in a bad marriage, so if that meant that he could have her all to himself, then he guessed he'd backed off.
At Newman, however, Victoria fantasized about her earlier conversation with J.T. When Brad walked in, he quickly noticed that Victoria seemed pensive, and he assumed that Victoria was worried about the grand jury trial. Victoria said she was concerned about the trial because of the negative impact it could have on Newman Enterprises. Brad told Victoria that although he worried about perjuring himself, he had not yet figured out what he would say on the stand.
When Victoria later met with J.T., she told him that they should step back from one another. She explained that they had reached out for one another when their relationships with others had failed. J.T. told Victoria that he didn't care why they were together as long as they were together, and he took her into his arms and kissed her. Victoria broke away and said she had to go, but J.T. begged her not to forget what he'd said. Just after Victoria walked away, Brad confronted J.T. about hanging out at the club's courts to beg, but J.T. informed Brad that he did not have to beg for what he wanted. Later, when Nikki noticed that Victoria was lost in thought, she questioned Victoria. Victoria said that she missed Nick, wondered what Brad would say at the hearing and was wondering what J.T. thought. When Victoria mentioned J.T., Nikki was confused, but Victoria let the matter drop. Meanwhile, Nikki, David and Karen worked on Nikki's campaign. David noticed Nikki's frustration when she was unable to contact Victor, and he offered support. Victoria took notice of David's attention to her mother.
Sharon rode the elevator with Brad and the two discussed their upcoming testimonies before the grand jury. Brad told Sharon that if he were to tell the truth, the trial could be bad publicity for Newman, and that their affair would also become public knowledge. Sharon told Brad that she hadn't yet decided how she would handle her testimony. Later, while Sharon and Brad lunched, Brad told Sharon that he had testified that he didn't remember the specific details of what Phyllis had said or implied. Sharon said that she didn't want to lie, but Brad explained that he could face perjury charges if their testimonies don't match. Brad added that he was concerned that so many people will be affected by the outcome of the grand jury's decision. Sharon assured Brad that she'd listen to his advice, but she admitted that she hadn't yet decided if she'd back him up.
Phyllis, Jack and Ben worked feverishly on Jack's campaign, which they said could benefit from negative jabs at Nikki. Sharon stopped by and thought she was informing Jack about Kay having purchased Jabot from Ji Min. Jack acted surprised and said he would use all of his energy to concentrate on his campaign. Sharon was nervous about testifying, so Jack wished her good luck. After Sharon left, Phyllis told Jack that she was the one who needed luck because Sharon could crucify Phyllis with her testimony.
Jack later told Nikki that Jabot had been sold. Phyllis, who was just outside the room, listened as Nikki taunted Jack, telling him that he could never fill his father's shoes. After Nikki left in a huff, Phyllis came in. Jack promised Phyllis that he would look after Summer if worse came to worse regarding the grand jury. Phyllis explained that Lauren and Michael had already agreed to take Summer. Phyllis made Jack promise not to let Nikki get her hands on Summer. Later, when Jack and Phyllis were in the conference room, Sharon stopped by after having testified. When they asked her how it went, Sharon claimed that she had told the truth.
