Nick enters the room and Sally says she’s nervous because she’s never been to a masked ball before.

Adam and Victoria argue in the coffee shop

She tells him that Newman will take over McCall, and she’s in charge of Newman, so there’s a flaw in his logic.

At that moment, Nate walks in and tells Adam that he should watch his mouth.

Nate comes into Crimson Lights and confronts Adam

Victoria tells Nate not to worry about her brother, he won’t be a problem.
