Nick stunned Victor by revealing that he’d been posing as J.T. — thanks to a prosthetic mask — and was responsible for sabotaging Newman with the intention of launching his own company, Dark Horse. Upset to learn how ruthless Nick had become, Sharon took off her engagement ring! Meanwhile, Phyllis was distressed to discover that Billy had begun gambling again. After fighting with her beau, Phyllis found comfort with Jack, who shockingly urged his ex-wife to give his brother another chance! Unfortunately, her plan imploded when she found Billy back at the poker table! Later, Phyllis and Nick commiserated on their unraveling love lives… which led to a night of passion! The next morning, they agreed never to reveal their tryst. Nick and Sharon worked things out, but Billy accused Phyllis of trying to control him and questioned whether they should reunite! With Billy freezing her out, Phyllis grew closer to Jack. Still, she freaked when she realized that Kyle knew what she’d done (if not who with). Summer seduced Kyle to find out his secret. Upon discovering her mom had cheated on Billy, Summer — hoping to use this info to her advantage — set out to discover who Phyllis had slept with!
At Jabot, Billy and Ashley fought for control of the company. Fed up, Billy sent Ashley to an international conference to get her out of his hair! Before leaving, Ash enlisted Kyle to spy on Billy for her. Despite having dealt with Ashley, Billy still found himself clashing with Jack on several fronts. Later, Lauren added to Billy’s headaches when she accused him of behaving in a shifty manner toward her company. Across town, Victor decided to hire Nikki to head up Newman’s real estate division. He also had her elected to the board of directors. Nikki, however, wondered if her sudden desirability on the work-front was Victor’s way of spiting Nick. Despite Victor’s attempts to bring the Newman clan together — minus Nick — Nikki refused to give up on reuniting her entire family. Across town, tensions spiked between Billy and Nick… to the point that the two men got into a physical fight. Afterwards, Billy launched his big, secret project!
