Ashley then returns in time to see Jack shaking Tucker's hands, who informs her that he's hired Jack as co-CEO effective immediately. She is taken aback, but says goodbye to Tucker.

I'm hoping that my picture issues will be fixed during the weekend. I had to use the stressful picture source that takes forever.
Yeah Skye! I hope next week she reveals Adam to the world. She might too, because she seems to have had enough of him.
Meggie spiking Nikki's drink. Predictable. Funny how Nikki didn't taste it, though.
