Adam meets with Sharon at Crimson Lights. He wants to know if she thought about his offer and makes it clear that whatever she decides he is walking away from Adustus. He thinks that if they work together with Kirsten's company they can turn his father's plan into dust. He gets offended by Sharon's response. Sharon notes that she sees the logic in Victor's point of view. Sharon doesn't understand why Adam wants to walk away from the company. She was looking for a merger so she is not looking to go to war with Victor Newman. He's ready to leave but she persuades him to stay. She informs him that he's reacting the same way he always does to Victor. He says he doesn't want his father to dictate his life. She encourages him to imagine what they could do with the two companies merged. Chance enters. Adam tells Sharon that she has given him a lot to think about so they will be in touch as he takes off. Chance invites her out. She is unable to leave. He is desperate to kiss her again. She tells him about her conversation with Adam and how she refused to consider anything other than a merger. He doubts Adam's ability to act sensibly rather than emotionally.
After making it clear how he wants things to run from now on, Victor asks Nick and Victoria if they have any questions. Victoria is completely on board but Nick hasn't decided yet. Victor makes it clear that he will be the one calling the shots from now on. They argue over Adam. Nick is irritated because they have given Nate his position. He's got reservations. Victor agrees but believes he can be an asset. His father tells him to move on. Even if he has to push it, Newman's family harmony will be attained. Nick adds that he's tried before to get the three of them to work together, but it's always failed. Victor believes he can pull this off. Victor asks his daughter to stay when Nick departs. Victoria believes that everything is going as she had hoped. He has taught her everything. He expresses how proud he is of her.
