At the police station, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) visits Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), and says he believes he’s innocent. Nick won’t give a reason for his epiphany and announces he’ll get Victor’s legal strategy going in the right direction as it’s been a disaster so far. Victor asks who he thinks he’s talking to, and warns arrogance doesn’t become him. It’s more complex than Nick realizes and thinks his strategy was a necessity. Michael Baldwin arrives. Nick says, “Meet your new lawyer.”
Victor doesn’t need him and asks Michael to leave. Michael argues with Victor, who insists he prefers to be in solitary. Nick calls him a liar then asks Michael to leave. Victor fumes at Nick for calling him a liar. Nick’s undeterred. He thinks someone is framing him and if he tries to thwart them, he’ll put the family at risk. Victor confirms it. Nick states Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) needs him. He knows Victor had nothing to do with J.T. Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) death and he asks him to let Michael take his case for Nikki’s sake. Victor assures Nick he’ll get out and lets him know he’s proud of him.

Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) has dropped Reed Hellstrom (Tristan Lake Leabu) at the airport before she arrives at the ranch. She says she came quickly since Nikki Newman sounded upset. Nikki shows her the fireplace poker. Victoria gasps, “That’s at the bottom of the lake.” Nikki replies, “Not anymore.” She also tells Victoria that Nick Newman was there last night and now he knows everything.
Victoria’s angry that she told Nick Newman of all people. Nikki was too upset to handle it herself. She adds he doesn’t know Sharon McAvoy (Sharon Case) and Phyllis Summers (Gina Tognoni) were involved. Victoria warns that Nick has changed since he started Dark Horse and he thinks he knows what’s best and could involve the police but they’ll be screwed! Nikki argues that Nick’s not the problem and they need to figure out how the poker got there, who did it, and why.
Nikki points out even if it’s a duplicate; someone else knows. Victoria decides this is way out of hand. Nikki feels sticking together is their best bet at getting out of this nightmare. “We’ll find out who’s tormenting us and why, and then we’ll stop them.”
At an unknown location, a video feed shows Nikki Newman and Victoria Newman sitting together at the ranch.

Ana admits she’s not afraid of that but won’t say why she’s insisting on staying anonymous. Fenmore presses her, and she angrily warns him to drop it or he’ll ruin a good thing.
