When Billy leaves Nick and Victoria have to laugh. She tells Nick she can’t work for their Dad and still be married to JT but she wants to be kept in the loop especially with regards to the SEC matter. He tells her he could drag this thing out in court for years and spend millions on a PR campaign or he could give immediate relief to those who need it and salvage Newman’s reputation.
