Phyllis and Nick dined with Victoria at the club and offered praise for her great cover photo. Nick thanked his sister and insisted that he owed her for stepping in and allowing herself to be photographed for the magazine. Victoria mentioned that she and Sabrina had exchanged cross words during the photo shoot. Victoria added that she would never again trust her former friend, whose old boyfriend just happened to show up in town. Victoria added that Sabrina might be capable of just about anything.
At the gallery, Sabrina was pleased that Adrian's article about her might serve as great publicity for the upcoming gala. Sabrina told Adrian about the harsh words she and Victoria exchanged. Adrian was certain that Sabrina and Victoria would soon iron out their differences. Before he left, Adrian insisted that Sabrina was generous, forgiving, and loyal, and that everyone would soon learn about Sabrina's good traits after the magazine issue with her interview was released. Later, Jana prepared tea for Sabrina's meeting with Kay and Victoria to plan the gala. After Kay and Victoria arrived, Kay noted the chilliness between Sabrina and Victoria, although each insisted that nothing was wrong. When Victoria and Sabrina discussed decorations for the gala, they snapped at one another as if just below the surface, they were actually arguing about the deterioration of their relationship since Sabrina became romantically involved with Victor. Before their argument escalated, Kay admonished the two women to call a truce and channel their energies into planning the gala. Victoria and Sabrina continued to bicker. Frustrated, Kay told the women to work out the gala's details and let her know.
At Restless Style's headquarters, Daniel snuck in before anyone else to investigate what had prevented his emails from posting to Amber's computer. Daniel muttered, "That explains a lot," just before Phyllis and Nick arrived. When Phyllis asked Daniel what he was doing, he answered, "I'm just finding out how far you'll go to mess up my life, and I know what you did." Phyllis admitted that she blocked emails Daniel sent to Amber. Daniel ordered his mother to stay out of his life, but Phyllis said, "I'm not going stay out of your life, and you're going to be glad that I didn't stay out of your life. You're going to realize that I was right about Amber." Amber walked in just as Daniel told his mom to butt out because his relationship with Amber was none of her business. After Phyllis walked away, Amber thanked Daniel for standing up for her, but Daniel cautioned Amber not to read too much into it. When Amber attempted to discuss the issue with Daniel, he snapped that they'd already discussed it. Adrian walked in, and Amber looked as if she wanted to sink into the floor. Daniel glared at Adrian and then at Amber.
Jack arrived at the magazine's headquarters, and he noted that Daniel looked a little rough around the edges. Sabrina breezed in and apologized for having disrupted the photo shoot. Phyllis pointed out that Sabrina should apologize to Victoria. Vindictively, Sabrina said, "Oh, there's a lot I want to say to her." After Sabrina left, Nick told Jack that one newsstand had drastically cut back on its order due to lagging sales the previous month. Jack, in a somber tone, said, "You and I have already put a lot of money into this business. Right now, our expenses far exceed our income. I'm afraid Restless Style is starting to look more like a millionaire's hobby than it does a successful business." After Jack and Nick began arguing about whether or not the print version of the magazine could ever become profitable, Phyllis stepped in and reminded the men that the Webzine greatly exceeded expectations. Jack claimed that perhaps Victor had been right. Nick refused to accept Jack's assessment, and he insisted that the print version was workable. Jack noted that in light of losing advertisers, they would have tough decisions ahead. After Phyllis left, Jack pressed Nick to allow any drastic measure that would ensure the magazine's success. Nick relented, as long as, he noted, Jack's plan was not illegal.
While Jack was alone at the magazine's headquarters, he phoned the publisher and said, "No, the byline stays the same. Adrian Korbel is the author. Only the content changes, so print the article exactly as I emailed it to you last night." Jack later offered Adrian an opportunity to write a piece on Aboriginal art. Adrian was intrigued until he learned that his flight to Australia would leave in two hours. Jack sweetened the deal and told Adrian he would meet with Irving Dietrich. Adrian recognized Dietrich as a famous anthropologist and collector who had written best-selling books. Jack added that Dietrich was about to lead a new expedition to the outback, and it was arranged for Adrian to meet with Dietrich before he left. Jack encouraged Adrian to make a decision quickly.
At the club, Jill was dismayed to learn that Kay had hired Julio Ortiz as director of operations for Organic Life. Kay cited Jill's preoccupation with Jeffrey Bardwell for having taken the reins from Jill. Mockingly, Jill thanked Kay for doing her job and insisted that she was no longer concerned about Jeffrey Bardwell. Kay reminded Jill that she had recently been too obsessed with her sex life to tackle Chancellor Industries, which Kay added, was still her company. After Kay claimed that Jill was jealous because Gloria had snagged Jeffrey, Jill reminded her mother that something was wrong with Gloria and Jeffrey's relationship. Kay warned, "Stay out of it. For some reason, you think there's some big secret." Jill responded, "There is. Jeffrey said something odd when Gloria spiked his drink and tried to kill him. He said that she'd done something like that before."
In the Abbott's dining room, Gloria, along with Jeffrey, gathered her brood for a discussion. Jack was not amused to find Gloria entertaining her family in his home, but he reluctantly obliged. After Jack left, Kevin learned that Gloria and Jeffrey had married. Kevin thought Jeffrey was blackmailing his mother again, but Gloria explained that her marriage was "for real" this time. Jana excused herself and thanked her hostess for breakfast. Michael, Kevin, and Lauren cringed when Gloria announced that she and Jeffrey had a plan. To carry out their plan, Jeffrey asked for Michael's professional help. Michael looked puzzled until Gloria added that she and Jeffrey wished to buy Jabot stock. Michael said that a broker could assist, but Gloria explained that she and Jeffrey wished to secretly obtain the stock. Michael opened his laptop and explained how a dummy corporation worked. Lauren worried about legalities, but Jeff pointed out "they" would stop Gloria if it was known that she was behind the purchase. Gloria spitefully rolled her eyes and declared, "So we need to do it before they know what hit 'em. And then Jill can take her telephone and her reception desk and stick it where the sun don't shine." When Jeff asked about Michael's fee for setting up the dummy corporation, Michael demanded that Jeffrey hand over the cream Gloria had tainted. Jeffrey insisted that he would never again hurt Gloria or her family, but Michael ordered Jeffrey to fetch the cream. Jeff left, but when he returned, he reported that the cream was missing from the safe in his room at the club. Michael gritted his teeth and narrowed his brow in frustration, but Jeff claimed that someone must have taken the cream.
At Amber's penthouse, she relived the awful scene the day before after she confessed to Daniel that she'd been unfaithful. As soon as Daniel stepped into Amber's apartment, she began apologizing. Daniel asked Amber whom she had slept with, and he laughed mockingly when Amber admitted that it was Adrian. Amber rambled that she and Adrian had been wasted and did not know what they were doing. Amber also blamed Daniel for his lack of communication and the photo of him with a female groupie for her disloyalty. Daniel explained that it was not his fault that his emails didn't get through. Flustered, Daniel exclaimed, "The picture's your excuse? I guess that just goes to show how much you trust me, huh?" Sobbing, Amber pledged her love and promised that she would never be unfaithful again. Before Daniel stormed out, he told Amber that he would come back later for his stuff. After Daniel left, Amber broke down. Kay stopped by to check on Amber, and she told Kay that she had cheated on Daniel. Amber cried that she wanted Daniel back. Kay advised, "If he truly loves you, he will return on his own." Amber blamed Phyllis for doctoring the picture, but Kay pointed out that Amber had made the choice to sleep with Adrian.
From his house, Brad phoned Skye and left a message. Brad congratulated Skye for her poker playing and mentioned that Chow would not echo his sentiment. Brad also offered Skye a position at Jabot and noted that he might soon be calling the shots, so he might even become her boss. Jill stopped by. She told Brad she had a proposition for him that must be kept in strictest confidence. Jill said she knew that Brad wasn't happy unless he was running the show. Brad admitted that he was an ambitious guy. Jill said she planned a power play against Kay to "dethrone" her and put Brad in charge of Jabot. Brad agreed to help Jill carry out her plan.
