Maggie questions Alex not allowing an office for her future husband and argues that she doesn’t need his permission to do anything, so she’s not going to allow him to call the shots. Maggie adds that she’s not asking Alex to give Konstantin a job, just an office space because she’s establishing a trust with her portion of Victor’s estate and Konstantin has a lot of time on his hands, so he’d like to help and she figured he could distribute the funds. Alex argues that he can do that from home. Maggie disagrees and says the house is chaotic with Doug, Julie, Chad, and the kids while this work takes a quiet focus. Maggie calls the work important and declares that they will give Theresa’s old office to Konstantin. Maggie adds that Alex might think he is all powerful at Titan, but reminds him that they are splitting Victor’s estate evenly so he can’t just deny her simple request.

Julie says Abigail too and reveals that she had a dream about Abigail last night. Julie stops and worries that she shouldn’t have told Chad about it but Chad says he’s glad she did. Chad thanks her but says he can’t believe Abigail was working on a story about Clyde for so long and he didn’t know about it.
