Nora is sitting in a little garden area with Saul and Holly, saying that she programmed her DVR with Holly's name and caught an episode of Charlie's Angels Holly was on. Holly is equal parts embarrassed and gratified, while Saul is equal parts irritated and irritated. Nora keeps up the compliments for a minute, and then leaves. Holly looks like she's enjoying herself, and I don't think it's sadistic in any way. She is an intriguing character, that is for sure.
Kevin, Sarah, and Kitty, in front of Scotty (who basically knows about it already) and the caterers (!), have a brief argument over whether they should tell Nora about Holly before Nora enters and shoos them all outside...
...and then everyone's having dinner at a long table in the yard. Nora is bending Warren's ear about something that sounds Bush-related, and then Scotty asks for the mango peach salsa. It seems odd that everyone acts like his request is tantamount to asking people to pass the dismembered babies, but I will give points for the fact that actual crickets are chirping to drive home the point. Warren asks Nora why they're the only ones talking, giving Nora the opportunity to announce that everyone thinks she doesn't know that William had a long affair with "that woman Holly," complete with "a cunning little cottage built for two." Holly looks mortified as Nora conversationally goes on that everyone thinks she's living in the dark, and they're terrified she's going to figure things out. And given the subtle, tactful way she's handling the news, their fears were obviously completely unjustified! Nora stares daggers at Holly, who leaves without a word. Nora: "Would someone please pass the mango peach salsa to Scotty!" Terrified reaction shots of Saul and the Walker children are cut with Scotty happily accepting the salsa from Kevin. Hee.
Triple H. Saul has come to check on Holly, who's distraught; seeing herself in Nora's eyes was a dreadful eye-opener. "It is time that I become a person. I won't be invisible any longer." I'm betting she won't be inaudible, either.
In the living room, I think, Nora's looking no happier than Holly as Kitty comes in and commiserates about how miserable the dinner was. Nora apologizes, but Kitty says the explosion was necessary, and I like that Kitty is the one comforting Nora here; their adversarial status makes her comfort mean more than Sarah's, and the boys are out of the question in this particular situation. Nora tells Kitty that she found out about William's affair fifteen years earlier; she caught him in a lie, and he confessed but said it was over already, only to turn around and buy Holly a house. She goes on that he lied and lied, and Kitty feebly protests that William did love her, but Nora bites out that he didn't give up anything to do it. She adds that when she saw the deed, she knew it had never ended (this seems like some license, because "house in Silver Lake" doesn't immediately translate to "affair," but I can believe that it got her suspicions going) and she wanted Holly to feel as small and stupid as she did. Mission accomplished, and I don't throw that phrase around as lightly as some people do. Nora says she's ashamed of herself, but that it felt good. She then completes the secret-symmetry as she tells Kitty she has to tell Jonathan she slept with Warren. Kitty: "Who told you?" Hee.
