She texts Nate. “Room 407.”
Nate’s sitting downstairs at the bar in the hotel lobby, having a drink, when he gets the text message.
Nate thinks back to speaking to Elena and telling her that nothing’s going on between him and Victoria.
He thinks of Victoria saying that power is control, and how she likes having control, and then kissed him and he responded.
He downs his drink and heads to the elevator.
Nick steps out of the elevator and sees Nate.
Nick says he came down to see Victoria and asks Nate if he knows where she is.
Nate says he doesn’t keep track of Victoria. He says he had an argument with Elena and he decided to come to have a drink at the hotel.
Nick says he thought he was there to meet with Victoria.
Nate says he did. He says he’s going to give Elena some space and crash at the hotel for the night.
Nick looks thoughtful.
Adam sits drinking at the bar in the restaurant when Tucker comes and sits near him. Adam asks if he can buy Tucker a drink.
Tucker says if he’s looking for someone to commiserate with, he’s got the wrong guy.

Adam says that his deal with Devon isn’t settled and that everyone has a price. He says the Newmans will pay that price.
Nick comes in to pick up some takeout, and Adam says that he and Tucker were talking about selling the company to the Newmans. He asks Tucker what it’d take for him to sell to the Newmans.
Tucker says that he’ll never sell. He slams the rest of his drink and leaves.
Nick asks what Adam’s going to do now that McCall is off the table.
Adam says that they just need to get Devon not to buy McCall from Tucker.
Nick says that even if they could, Tucker won’t sell to Victor.
Adam says that Victor won’t quit until he gets what he wants.

Abby asks what Devon wants to do. She says she’s not sure they can trust Tucker.
Devon says that he and Tucker really got along well when they last talked and that Tucker wants to come on board in an advisory role.
Abby asks what Devon thinks about that, and says that’s giving him the benefit of the doubt.
Devon asks if they should be giving him the benefit of the doubt.
Abby says she could leave Dominic there and pick him up in the morning.
