Adam takes Noah's place and the duo talk about Ashland's death. Adam implies it should feel like a victory, but he lets Victor know Chance chatted with him.

Victor reminds Adam that Newmans may fight, but pull together when it's necessary. He warns his son that it will do him well to remember he's a Newman.
