Noticing that Jack's popularity has slipped in the polls due to negative publicity from Nikki's camp, Phyllis and Sharon joined forces to hatch a plan to dig up dirt on Nikki. After Phyllis feigned a maneuver that she claimed realigned her "injured spine," the two women made their way to Newman Enterprises. However, after running into Brad, Phyllis assumed the task of strategically placing a small "nanny" camera on a desk in Nikki's office. As Sharon distracted Brad, Neil came along to drop off something in the office, so Sharon pretended to sprain her ankle and screamed as if in pain in order to warn Phyllis. When Jack happened upon his wife and his ex, he wondered how the women had ended up at Newman Enterprises when they were supposed to be picking up Noah's book at the tack house. Phyllis quickly concocted a story about needing to pick up her notebook, and then the two women abruptly left after having accomplished their mission undetected.
Brad met with his divorce lawyer to outline his stake of community assets. Neil overheard Brad lament the fact that the Newman family was always out to get him. Neil seemed to enjoy pointing out the fact that Victoria has reassigned to him the projects formerly assigned to Brad.
At Crimson Lights, J.T. gushed over Victoria and bragged that he is surely the father of her unborn baby. Later, as Victoria, Neil, Cane and Adrian met at the club to discuss restoration projects at Clear Springs, J.T. showed up. Colleen told Lily that she couldn't care less as she and Lily watched J.T. hover over Victoria. Later, as the couple shared time together at the bar, J.T. seemed distracted and bored when Victoria shared her long-term plans for Clear Springs. J.T.'s mind was solely occupied with thoughts of making love to Victoria.
Amber, Kevin and Daniel realized that they'd have to dispose of Plum's body if they wanted to keep the money they found in Plum's backpack. After discussing some rather gruesome possibilities to rid themselves of the flaccid corpse, the trio decided to put the body into Kevin's car, drive somewhere and then dump it. En route, they planned to pretend that they were transporting a drunken friend. To excuse their absences, Amber told Cane that she was filling for a sick coworker, and Daniel told Lily that he had to work late. As they struggled to move Plum's remains, Jana's voice suddenly filled the room, and Kevin realized that she was contacting him via Web camera. Amber and Daniel listened as Jana and Kevin exchanged sarcastic niceties. When Jana requested to meet with Kevin, he told her he would if she comes back to Genoa City. Kevin promised Jana that he'd go the D.A.'s office with her to explain what had happened. Later, however, Kevin confided to his friends that he had agreed to meet with Jana, so he could have a chance to get back at her.
Later, however, at GCAC, Lily exposed Amber's alibi as a lie when Cane stopped by to defend her. When Kevin, Amber, Daniel and their dearly-departed passenger ended up stopping briefly in front of the club, Neil saw them. Neil approached the car and questioned Daniel about why he wasn't with Lily. Neil asked about their "friend," but he was told that their limp passenger was passed-out drunk. When Neil suggested that Daniel and Amber contact their respective spouses inside the club, Daniel and Amber got out of the car, leaving Kevin alone with Plum's body. However, neither Cane nor Lily were pleased to learn that Daniel and Amber had arrived at the club together, having shared a ride. Daniel and Amber were, of course, forced to rack up a more lies to cover their devious tracks.
After learning that would-be supporters had canceled his planned appearance, a dejected Jack was alone in Victor's office, doubting his decision to run for senate, when John appeared. Jack received a pep talk from his late father who told Jack that life isn't always easy and that the tougher challenges bring the greater rewards. Jack lamented the fact that he had resorted to back-stabbing publicity against Nikki. John asked Jack if he still had the pocket watch he had given him. Jack opened the watch and read aloud the inscription: "I am the master of my fate; the captain of my soul." Jack resolved not to go down without a fight.

Karen and Victoria tried to talk David out of going to Nikki's debate against Jack. After the video of David and Nikki had spread all over the Internet, they were concerned about how it would damage her campaign. Nikki insisted on David being there, and David assured them that as a volunteer, rather than a consultant, he'd be invisible to the voters.
Katherine and Jill were getting ready for their day. Katherine said she was going to Nikki's debate, and Jill was going to work. After they left, Amber was ready to go to work, too, but Cane talked her into calling in sick. After she did, Cane let her know it was his intention to make love to her in every room of the house. During one of their trysts, a messenger arrived with a DVD. Amber nervously remembered Garrett telling her that he had copies of her old videos that he could show Cane. Cane caught her trying to find out what the DVD was, but it was only an exercise tape. Later, Cane led Amber outside for a picnic. It was hard for Amber to be romantic, however, when they were at the same location where she, Daniel, and Kevin had buried the money they took from Garrett's room after finding him dead.
Katherine went to Newman Enterprises, where she, too, tried to talk Nikki into making David stay away from her.

Jack and Nikki appeared to be doing equally well during the debate, and Jack didn't take any opportunities to bring up the tape of David with Nikki. But when he spoke of values, Nikki dropped her bomb: After divesting himself of the Clear Springs properties so no one would doubt his ethics, Jack had secretly bought them back. Before Jack could respond, the debate was out of time. Later, Nikki and Jack both spoke to reporters, each of them putting their spin on things.
After the debate, Victoria felt nauseated and J.T. was leading her out of there. Brad confronted her about already knowing and leaking the information regarding the Clear Springs property. J.T. kept Victoria moving away from Brad. Later, Victoria insisted that she was fine. She just needed to eat. She and J.T. went to the athletic club, where Victoria wondered about her bad choices in men. J.T. assured her that he wasn't a bad choice.
Jack wasn't entirely happy to see Sharon and Brad talking after the debate, but he only watched from a distance as Brad expressed his regret that Nikki had divulged the Clear Springs information.

Nikki told Phyllis that she was bitter and might as well face the fact that her life was always going to be an unhappy one.
