Society – Lily asks Abby to speak to Devon
Abby comes into the restaurant and sees Lily sitting at a table waiting for take-out.
Abby asks how Lily is feeling about Chancellor-Winters.
Lily says she wants to know what Abby thinks about it, since she knows she’s close with Devon.
Lily says that Devon would keep the name, and they would get to move ahead with the IPO, but he’s not happy with that. She asks if Abby thinks Devon is making the right decision.
Abby says that she was trying to get Devon to accept the buyout, but after talking to him, she understands his point where.
Abby says that Jill and Lily should just sell the company back and that it really shows what Lily’s priorities are because it means so much to Devon.
Lily says that she can’t believe that Abby thinks that she values her company more than the family. She says she’s trying to get Devon to stay at Chancellor-Winters, that she lost Nate, and she feels like she’s losing Devon.
She says that it could damage Hamilton-Winters if they go to court. She says that she’d never ask Abby to go against her instincts but to please talk to Devon.
