Ashland tells the Newmans (and Billy) the same story he told Vikki. He lied when telling reporters that Ian and Mary Locke were nurturing and supportive parents who died young. When he begins to experience what appears to be a panic attack, Vikki steps in to scold everyone. Victor hopes Ashland understands why he’s so protective of Vikki. Billy thinks it a touching story – but is sure there’s more (as do the Newmans)

Nate’s not disappointed that he won’t be a doctor and won’t reveal any details on the surprise date Moses is planning.
Ashland was angry at his Mother for not protecting him as a 90 lb child so cut all ties – he wanted nothing to do with his parents. They never reached out to you? Billy asks. No – and he didn’t reach out to them. It’s too late now – they died. Where are they buried and what name is on the headstone? Billy’s relentless. Ashland won’t reveal that information.
Back at Society, Lily talks to Elena about Mattie going to Stanford and moving into a new apartment in California. She’s overwhelmed by having to choose her career. If she has any questions about med school, Elena’s happy to answer them.

Lily tells Elena that she got in trouble due to the Internet when she was young so can’t imagine how bad it is now. When Nate arrives at Society, Lily scolds the Chief of Surgery for working Elena too hard. It’s a bit awkward being the boss’s girlfriend, she admits.
