Jack won’t be comfortable with Ashley’s new partnership. When Jack says this is the man who kidnapped Hilary (Mishael Morgan), Dr. Neville will pipe up that he saved her. Ashley will tell Jack that they want to rent some lab space.
It will help Jabot generate income as well. In a moment alone, Jack will question Ashley’s true motive for doing all of this. Ashley will shout that she just wants to make the deal.
Another headache will strike for Ashley after her confrontation with Jack. She’ll pop some pills and press on. At the park, Gwen will tell Neil that she wants in on Dr. Neville’s project.

Dr. Neville will rant about Neil being in control of his venture. Hilary will arrive and want to be a part of it. Eventually, all the pieces of this project will come together. The team will toast to the good news with a few glasses of champagne.
