Victor wants Luca (Miles Gaston Villanueva) and Marisa (Sofia Pernas) to stop working and enjoy the holidays. Marisa thanks him.

Marisa says Merry Christmas.

Victor compliments Noah for thinking ahead with his actions. Luca tells Noah that Ava brings him and Marisa closer. Noah drops a photo of them, which breaks. Luca says he did it purposely.

Victor says he don’t “give a damn,” he’s talking about his grandson. Victor fires Noah. Marisa says it isn’t necessary, neither does Luca. Victor says consider his job being kept a Christmas bonus. Noah don’t understand. Behind closed doors, Victor says Noah gave him an opportunity to convince Luca that Noah’s a weak link. Noah asks Victor to join the party; he declines. Victor tells Noah he has a bright future at Newman and things are going as planned.

Later, Marisa thanks him for saving Luca’s job; Luca says he did it for her. Marisa invites him in; he says he doesn’t want to push things. Luca pauses to say he won’t go through if she doesn’t want this. She continues seducing him.
