After Lauren says her spill, Jack takes the mic and says his spill then says that he and Lauren didn't discuss what he's about to do but he feels there's someone in the room who deserves to have their say and then Tucker McCall and Ashley walks in and everyone's stunned. Tucker says he's happy to share this moment with everyone. Jack, Lauren, Jill and Katherine are all shocked. Sophie has a big smile on her face and I don't know why when he didn't put her in charge of his company when he was in the hospital.
