At the Newman break room, Phyllis and Nick discussed the fact that Victor, after being implicated in Ji Min's murder, has been taking his frustration out on Nick. Nick said that Victor believes that Jack's to blame. Phyllis said that she didn't believe that Jack was guilty. Nick reminded Phyllis that the police were looking at Jack before they arrested his dad. Phyllis said that the police didn't arrest Jack due to lack of evidence, but she reminded Nick that Victor had a reason to want Ji Min dead. After Phyllis' inquisitive visit with Jack, she told Nick that he should perhaps consider that Victor could have possibly, for one reason or another, been involved with Ji Min's death.
At the Abbott mansion, Ben brought in a copy of the morning newspaper featuring Victor's arrest. Jack told Ben that Victor had called him moments after being released on bail. Ben, noting that Jack's no longer a senator or the owner of Jabot, urged Jack to write a tell-all book about his life. Jack, however, insisted that his next move will include something that will make him feel good, so that plan does not include writing a book about his downfall. Sharon breezed into the room to let Jack know that she was due at Newman to meet about a promotion campaign for Beauty of Nature. Jack seemed uneasy, however, when Sharon told him that Brad would be heading up the campaign. Before she left, Jack made arrangements to meet Sharon later for dinner. After Sharon left, Ben assured Jack that Sharon is his, so he shouldn't worry because she loves him. Jack, however, had flashbacks of seeing Sharon being cozy with Brad. Jack left Sharon a voicemail telling her that he'd stop by to pick her up at Newman. Phyllis stopped by to check on Jack. Jack told Phyllis that Sharon was giving him another shot. Phyllis told Jack that rumors were flying saying that he was casting guilt on Victor to deflect the heat away from himself. Phyllis asked Jack, flat-out, if he'd killed Ji Min. Jack insisted that he did not kill Ji Min, and he denied having fabricated evidence implicated Victor, saying that he merely pointed it out.
At Newman, Brad locked the conference room door as he and Sharon looked over campaign materials. Brad, however, turned that conversation to his and Sharon's personal lives, such as Victoria's condition and Victor's arrest, as he rested his arm on the back of Sharon's chair. Sharon tried to stay on task, but Brad moved in, took Sharon by the arm and told her that he loved her. Brad embraced Sharon and began kissing her. Sharon kissed Brad, to and then, she suddenly pulled away, just as Jack arrived to pick his wife up for dinner. When Jack reached the conference room door, he realized it was locked. Brad and Sharon tried to act nonchalant, but Jack seemed to sense that something more than a business meeting had just taken place behind locked doors.
Daniel paid a visit to Heather's office to give her his check for repairs to her wrecked car. Daniel was a bit embarrassed when he startled Heather and caused her to spill coffee all over her desk. Heather nervously dabbed at the wet papers on her desk, but she assured Daniel that he was not to blame. When Daniel learned that Heather had been working late for several weeks, he insisted on taking her out to dinner. Heather, however, declined Daniel's offer.
At the coffeehouse Amber interrupted Daniel's Internet-job search and to tell him that she has her camera all ready to create her entry, as Marina, in the "Fresh Faces of Jabot" contest. Daniel, however, told Amber that her plan was half-baked and told her that she was only going to such lengths because she is still in love with Cane. When Amber later learned that hundreds of young women had entered the contest, she felt she should give up, perhaps, until she realized that computer-genius Kevin could assist her with the online voting process.
Heather hastily breezed into the coffeehouse and ordered a sandwich to go. Daniel again insisted that Heather at least, sit and eat with him. As Heather gulped her food, in a hurry to race back to her caseload, Daniel urged her to relax a bit. Heather said she was surprised that Daniel wasn't grilling her to get information about Victor's case. However, Daniel turned the conversation to his and Heather's shared interest in surfing. After Heather left, Amber teased Daniel about drooling over the woman who put his mother in prison.
Kevin visited Jana in prison. Kevin assured Jana that he'd soon get her released after proving that her tumor had been responsible for Carmen's murder. Jana worried, though, about the legal ramifications, but Kevin assured her that most attorneys believe that her strong medical evidence is difficult to refute in court. Later, Daniel accompanied Kevin when he visited Heather's office armed with a box of evidence he claimed could get Jana released from prison. Heather cautioned Kevin and advised him to give the files to Jana's attorney, Michael. Kevin insisted that Jana's a good person who should not be imprisoned.
As Gloria prepared for Jeffrey to come for dinner, Lauren questioned Gloria about her intentions with Jeff. Gloria, however, explained that she had been wrong about being suspicious of Jeff and urged Lauren and the rest of her family to put their suspicions to rest, so they could enjoy the evening with Jeff. While Gloria readied champagne flutes in the kitchen, Lauren accidentally discovered an overflowing bag of diamond-encrusted jewelry in Gloria's open handbag. When Lauren thought that Gloria was stealing jewelry, Gloria explained that she was merely investing her money. Lauren said that she still wasn't buying Gloria's explanation that Jeff had suddenly become Gloria's romantic interest after being her enemy. After Gloria left to change clothes, Lauren showed Michael Gloria's purse full of pricey baubles. Michael flipped through Gloria's checkbook and learned that Gloria had written a check for $50,000 to Jeff Bardwell. When Michael confronted Gloria, she lied, saying that Jeff was investing it in property. As the doorbell rang, Gloria implored Michael and Lauren to be on their best behavior. As everyone sipped martinis, Jeff celebrated the fact that Gloria had been vindicated when she found evidence proving that Jack had forged his father's will. Gloria toasted to turning a new corner in her life. Michael asked Jeff about the property he was investing in. At first, Jeff was puzzled, but Gloria filled in the blanks, explaining that Jeff was buying a house in Genoa City. Kevin breezed in after his visit to Heather's office. After Jeff served Kevin a glass of champagne, the room became quiet after Jeff announced that Gloria had consented to be his wife.
