Victor says that Victoria doesn’t know how to handle Adam’s return.
Nikki says that Victoria is worried about Adam creating chaos and drama.
Victor says he’s putting a stop to that.
Nikki says that Victoria is doing a great job at Newman Enterprises and that it’s up to Adam to show Victoria that he can put the company’s needs over their personal grievances… But she doesn’t see it happening.
Nikki says they’ve had a good marriage and she says that she needs to show him something. She gets up and gives him a card. She says it’s one of the first Valentine’s Day cards that he ever gave her.

“To my darling, you are much more than my wife, you are the light of my life. What would I do without you by my side? After all these years you still manage to take my breath away. I love you.”
She looks up and gasps, asking what he’s done.

She says that Nick had her back during her last relationship, and she wants to support him in his relationship now.
He thanks her and says he needs her support right now, as everyone else seems to be against the relationship.
Victoria says she’s worried that bringing Adam back has taken over Victor’s mind and that Victor is planning to give control of McCall Unlimited to Adam.
Nick says that he’s not giving away Victoria’s job, and it doesn’t affect them whatsoever.
Victoria says something about family, and Nick looks worried.
Victoria notices his look and says that if he needs to, he can tell her anything.
Nick doesn’t hesitate and blurts out, “Sally’s pregnant.”
Victoria almost chokes on her drink.
Victoria asks if he’s going to be a father again.
He says, “Or an uncle.”
Victoria figures out that it was Adam, and Nick explains that she wasn’t cheating on him.
He tells Victoria that Sally was perfectly honest with him about the possibility of it being Adam’s.
She asks if he’s ok with this.
Nick says he’s not, he doesn’t want the baby to be Adam’s. He talks about how he went through this with Christian and wants it to be uncomplicated.
She asks how he really feels about Sally.
Nick says that he really likes Sally and feels deeply for her. He says that with a baby on the way, he can’t help but be more invested in their relationship.
Victoria asks if he’ll still feel that way if the baby’s not his.
Nick says he doesn’t know, but his feelings for Sally haven’t changed.
Victoria says that Sally is lucky to have a person like Nick for a father. She asks if he’s really happy.
Nick says even with all the questions about the pregnancy situation, he’s happier than he’s been in a long time.
He says that only a few people know about Sally’s pregnancy and asks that Victoria keeps it to herself.
