V puts a letter up as Brooke walks in COB. She’s going back to NY. The designs are excellent. The designs should stabilize the company. She needs to leave her a few things. They need to do some media. And fly to LA and tell that boy you love him. When she was young there was a boy that loved me but I didn’t love him back because he wasn’t in my circle and I let him go. And not a day has gone by that I don’t regret it. She’s been a terrible mother. I had a daughter who is strong and bright and kindhearted, so beautiful but I’ve nearly broken her with my inability to open my heart but I haven’t broken her. She’s just as strong and beautiful as ever. She just misnamed her company. If Julian loves you and you love him. That’s all that matters. That is the most important thing and the clothes can wait. She gives her a letter and says it’s for her. It’s the company. It’s all hers. 100%. She’d rather have her daughter than her company. Brooke says she loves the company. V says I did but I was wrong. I should have loved you more and the company less. Brooke says “Mom, I want you to stay on and run things from NY.” V asks if she’s keeping her. She says you’re my mother. They hug.
