When Traci and Alan settle in at the bistro, she realizes that coming back there must bring back a lot of memories of Martin. He admits it does, but it gives him some closure. He has to live with his brother’s crimes and illness and mourn him. It’s all very complicated. Being with her makes him feel like the place is being cleansed. She’s glad to hear that he thinks they will be making good memories. Alan says that being with her is very reassuring. Her kindness and compassion are rare and real. She explains that the experiences she’s had, the joy and bone-cracking sorrow, have all taught her that life is a continuum and you have to accept all of it so you can move forward. He thinks that’s a lesson everyone could learn.

Traci wants to know everything about him. He admits that’s hard to do without discussing his twin. She’s close to her brothers and sister but sure that can’t be as intense as the bond between twins. Laughing, he tells her about how he and his brother would pretend to be each other. Only their mother could tell the difference. He was the serious one and his brother was more of a dreamer. She’s sure it must be a great loss and is sorry she’s making him talk about this. He says it’s good. Normally, he doesn’t open up and needs to face all this. If she wasn’t such a great writer, she’d be a great therapist; she can read people’s hearts. He read her novel, Echoes of the Past, last night. He couldn’t put it down. Traci says it was about her and her sister. “And very much like you. Kind, loving, and beautiful. Inside and out,” he says.

The doctors are trying things but she’s not out of the woods yet. He would have said something earlier but she swore him to secrecy. This is why adding Abbott to the letterhead is so important. It’s for her legacy. He asks Devon not to say anything during the call. Devon finds the timing for dropping this bomb interesting. Did he wait until the last moment to get a sympathy vote?

Jill assures them that she is getting plenty of care and asks that they call Abby so they can get this over with.


Abby joins the video call and the meeting gets started. Jill announces she will be exercising her own vote since it involves the company she built. Billy declares the meeting is only a formality. Devon wants details about how assets will be divided. Billy offers him gaming and he will take the others. They vote in favor of not getting into the details so they can move on to voting on the demerging. Lily puts the question of separating the companies to the board. Lily, Billy, Devon, and Abby vote “Yes.” This leaves Jill to cast a symbolic vote. Bitterly laughing, she says she should have prepared a concession speech. She thinks what they are about to do is a horrible mistake. Despite the in-fighting, the company has prospered. She hates that this didn’t work and the only option is to tear it apart. She votes “No.” Telling her son that he’s now got what he wanted, she only hopes it’s worth it and hangs up. The call ends. Devon immediately exits. Lily says it’s done. Billy notices she’s not excited. She feels like they let Jill down.

Kyle and Summer start bickering. She demands to know what’s going on with Audra. He doesn’t feel like he owes her any explanations and says there is nothing personal going on. He claims he was fired by his mom because she was threatened by his presence. His dad sided with Diane. Summer is sorry and sure it hurt him. He says it opened his eyes. Audra now runs Glissade and has a secret investor who owns the company. He’s going to work as her co-CEO. Summer thinks he’s out of his mind and that all of this sounds sketchy; he’ll be competing against his own family’s company. Kyle won’t feel bad about that after what they did to him. It was treacherous. She can understand he’s angry, but this is a declaration of war. Maybe Diane deserves that, but does Jack? This all sounds like a recipe for disaster. She thinks Kyle’s a fool and doesn’t want their son anywhere near Audra. Summer decides it’s time for them to revisit their custody agreement. Kyle wonders if she really wants to go there; would that really be good for their son? Walking out, she says she will have her attorney call his.
