Hidden cameras watched Dani, Matthew, and Jeffrey's apartment, the Llanfair living room, Téa's nursery, and the La Boulaie living room.
Dorian was on the phone, making sure that "the material" had been sent to the SEC. She commented that she was happy to see justice served and hung up the phone. Jack entered, and Dorian told him that she was going to take him out to dinner. He didn't want to go, but she wasn't listening. David and Blair entered, and Dorian wanted to make it a family dinner. Jack yelled that he didn't want to go and that no one ever listened to him. Dorian, Blair, and David looked at Jack, open-mouthed.
While Dani had dinner cooking, she poured Matthew and Jeffrey a glass of her own concoction. Jeffrey and Dani teased Matthew, who had been trying all day to call Michelle, the girl from Facebook. Matthew admitted that he was worried about her, but Jeffrey insisted that Matthew hardly knew anything about the girl. Jeffrey informed Matthew that, as a reporter, Jeffrey didn't believe anything he heard without confirmation. Jeffrey pressed Matthew for one verifiable fact about Michelle.
Matthew related that he knew Michelle lived in Toronto because her phone number had a Toronto area code. Thinking again, Matthew refused to take advice from "two single losers." Dani wondered what Matthew liked about Michelle. Matthew told them that he'd had an "instant connection" with Michelle. Jeffrey didn't think Michelle was who she said she was, but Dani hoped what Matthew and Michelle had was real.
Dani went to the kitchen to work on dinner. Jeffrey asked Matthew why he was going after a girl he didn't know when Dani was available. Matthew insisted that, even though they had once dated, Dani was like his sister, and she was also close with Destiny. Matthew joked that Jeffrey should worry about his own "pathetic sex life." Dani carried some pasta over to the couch but tripped and spilled it all over.
At Shelter, Cutter gave instructions to Rama on how much they needed to sell that night. Natalie and Destiny entered the club and went straight to the bar. Natalie reminded Destiny that she had to work later. They agreed that they would only have one drink so they wouldn't get into trouble.
David and his cameraman sat at the bar. David wanted to find a sidekick who looked good but wouldn't "steal the spotlight." Rama walked up to the bar and was very star-struck when she saw David. She gushed to him about how many times she had seen The Boy with the Chipmunk Tattoo and asked him question after question about the movie. She turned for a quick conversation with the bartender. David took the opportunity to tell his cameraman to start shooting.
When Rama returned, David asked her to be an unpaid part of his reality show. Ecstatic, she accepted. The cameraman began shooting, and David announced that he was standing with his new best friend, the VIP hostess of Shelter. She related that her favorite part of her job was making small talk with customers. She wondered what his favorite part of his job was. He replied that it was meeting his fans and that they made the years of rejection worthwhile. He cut the take and gave Rama some notes about her performance.
Later, Natalie and Destiny went back to the bar after dancing for a while. Rama had two martinis ready for the women. Cutter complimented Natalie's moves on the dance floor and asked her to save him a dance. When he was gone, Destiny noticed the flirtation between Natalie and Cutter. "My work here is done," she joked and left to go to work.
Rama warned Natalie to be careful around Cutter. Natalie assured Rama that she could take care of herself and left to sit down. Cutter had heard what Rama had said to Natalie and asked what Natalie thought. Natalie replied that she was old enough to make her own decisions. Cutter joked that Rama had good taste in men as he watched her talk to David. Natalie had to get home to Liam. Before Natalie left, she and Cutter agreed to a date.
Todd identified a picture on Bo's desk as the tattoo he'd seen on Victor. Bo informed Todd that Todd's accusations were starting to add up because the stopper on the decanter had tested positive for arsenic. However, Bo couldn't be sure that Victor had been the one to put the arsenic there because he didn't consider Todd very reliable.
Téa entered wielding a file folder and told Bo that there was something he needed to see. Bo told Todd to leave and promised to call if Bo needed anything. Todd left, and Téa said that Todd hadn't been lying. In the folder were pages printed from her computer's browser history: "500 Ways to Kill" and research about arsenic.
Téa told Bo that he needed to find Victor, and he assured her that he had his best detectives on it. Téa didn't want to believe that Victor had tried to kill Todd, but she knew that he had plenty of motive. She confided that Victor had been different and reluctant to tell Téa anything about where he'd been. She believed that he'd been held and tortured. Bo warned her that, when they found Victor, he would be arrested. She accepted that because it would at least keep him safe until they figured out what was going on.
Viki angrily crumpled up a piece of paper and threw it away. "So I guess Paris is out of the question?" Clint asked as he entered the living room. Viki replied that the family was falling apart, and she didn't want her wedding to Clint to be rushed. Clint pulled the crumpled paper out of the trash can and discovered that it was a list of recommended cuts at the Banner. Viki refused to fire all those people, but Clint told her that she might have to.
Clint reminded Viki that she'd fired people before, but she replied that the recommendation had included major layoffs. Clint went through part of the list with Viki, but she had reasons to keep every person mentioned. He informed her that, if the paper had to be shut down, no one would have a job. Clint still wanted to invest in the paper, but Viki didn't want to mix business and personal life. He suggested that Buchanan Enterprises give the Banner a loan. Viki wanted lawyers to draw up the contract, so Clint left to make the phone call.
Todd entered, and Viki related her shock that he'd told Jack that Victor had tried to kill Todd. Viki told him that Jack needed a father and wanted to believe in Todd, but Todd needed to give Jack a reason to trust Todd.
Later, Viki expressed her worry about Todd and Jack to Clint. "Like father, like son," he replied. Viki insisted that Jack was innocent and hurting. Clint believed that Jack was trouble and had the "deck stacked against him" with father figures like Todd and Victor. Viki was determined to help Jack "overcome his DNA" and expected Clint to help. Clint responded that he had his hands full with making Matthew into a "standup guy."
Todd returned to his hotel room and found an envelope on the desk with the symbol like Victor's tattoo. He took a note out of the envelope that read, "Victor is alive. Finish what you started...or else."
