Deramian leads the Darlings down a set of stairs that he says is a secret way he knows about that "should be quiet as church." But they come out to greet hordes of media, of course, asking, "Did you murder Dutch George?" And, "Is this going to be a repeat of the Harvey Sutton trial?" (Who?) Deramian says his client is innocent, just like Harvey Sutton was innocent, despite his subsequent confession (must be an old Deramian client?). Nick's in the background asking if Deramian planned this, since the car isn't there waiting for them. It's all crazy chaos and Letitia has a meltdown and screams a barely decipherable "I just want to go home!" and it looks like she might have collapsed, but it cuts away weirdly on her head turned to the side and a palm over the camera. Because we are the voyeurs watching the media circus. Get it?
Nola enters her office to find an angry Jeremy. "Nothing personal?" he says. She breezes, "Don't be a hater." And I am sort of falling in love with Lucy Liu for not giving a shit what the Darlings think or say or do, other than to try to take one down. He's like, "You slept with me and then arrested my mom." She says, "It's called a hit and run." He says he thought it was called a setup. She's indignant. He says if it wasn't a setup, what was it, and she tells him that if it were a setup, she'd probably have asked him a few questions, don't you think. He says, "Yeah." She says the only thing she asked him for was to do a certain thing a little bit harder (I'm sure she asked him to "try"), and that she told him it's real. She really likes him. It's just complicated. He totally wants to kiss her, but instead he says he'll see her tonight so they can "talk" about this. She says that's not going to happen, but it was fun while it lasted. Then he leaves her to think seriously for about three-quarters of a second, so it's not clear yet if she's lying to him, or what is going on exactly.
Deramian's trying to defend his actions to Tripp. He couldn't have predicted that degree of mayhem. But Tripp points out that he also failed to turn in the papers, in addition to "standing there preening in the silvery light of the cameras while ... my beloved wife was unraveling like tape from a cassette." Dude, Tripp, you are totally aging yourself with your cassette references. Kids these days don't even know what a cassette is. Update your metaphors, would you? (By the way, Nick, Letitia, and Brian are all in the room.) Tripp goes on to say that he doesn't care how many heiresses Deramian has saved from conviction, he will no longer be defending Letitia. Deramian's like, "Fine." Nick looks skeptical, to say the least. Brian asks Nick if he's ready to take the case. Nick says that heading into a court with the victim's son is not going to fly, but Brian says it exonerates Letitia by design. Nick says it doesn't; it makes them look like they're all in bed together (um, you all are or have been in bed together, so what's the big deal?). Tripp agrees with Nick, but for some reason I'm thinking it's the beginnings of another Tripp Manipulation Session. Nick says he'll have a new list of attorneys in the morning, and Tripp thanks him. Nick leaves, and Brian follows him. Letitia asks what's going on and Tripp tells her all will be well.
