Jack confronts Ashley about the text. She tells him that she did not send him any text. She figures out that Victoria must have told Conrad about his plan.

He tells her that Helen approached him with a business proposition while he was in prison. He tells Victoria that they are now in a position where they can triple their previous wealth. Victoria is furious. Next, Jack arrives to meet Declan at the hospital only to find Nolan waiting for him with a video message from Declan. Jack tells Nolan that he wants to meet Declan.
