As Victor and Nikki wait to hear the judge’s ruling on Adam’s case, Victor reminisces with Nikki about bringing Adam back into his life. In court, the judge rules in Adam’s favor. He finds there isn’t sufficient evidence for Adam’s case to go to trial. Victor and Nikki ask everyone to come back to the ranch to discuss the situation with Adam. Later, Victor informs everyone that Adam will have to pay for his sins, but at his own hand. Adam remembers Hope and the day he left her to take a job in the city how proud she was of him and how he’s let her down.
