Tucker finishes a conversation with a private investigator when Sharon enters his office. She’s enraged that the media is conveying her as a ditz who’s destroying Newman stock prices. Later, Genevieve calls Tucker from Salt Lake City and informs him that she hasn’t found Victor. She reveals that locals told her Victor hopped into a bus to Las Vegas.
Nick and Avery plot to force Sharon out of Newman. After Avery leaves, Sharon shares her plans to expand the cosmetics line. Nick doesn’t agree with her cosmetic plan and insists she not make any drastic changes in order to keep the stock from plummeting.
Jack informs Abby that he wants to buy more shares of Newman Enterprises and tries to convince her to buy the stock. Abby is aware of Jack’s intentions to buy low and sell high, so she rejects his proposition. After a run-in with Sharon, Abby agrees to buy Newman stock with Jack. Once Abby leaves, Sharon approaches Jack and they talk about revenge against the Newmans. At the waterfront bar, Victor orders a beer, but the bartender refuses to serve him until he pays. A woman approaches and asks him a series of personal questions, but he remains shut off. She reveals herself as Sister Celeste and that she runs a homeless shelter.
Nick orders the search for Victor to start again. Avery suggests that if Nick wants to get Sharon out of the company, he should use her unstable history against her. Meanwhile, Tucker suggests that she fire Nick.
