Carmelita's meeting Patrick for lunch in what apparently used to be their usual spot. Patrick tells her that "Jorge made sure we got our private room." He thanks her again for the warning, and she says she could never let anything happen to him. He gives her an all-access pass to his inauguration. She reminds him what his father and chief of staff are going to say, but he doesn't care; he wants her there. Once that pass gets her in past everyone, he's going to announce her to the world. He wants to start a new life with her, not just a new term in office. She hugs him, but looks a little but uncertain. And you really can't blame her. How long has this guy been stringing her along anyway?
Brian's in a hall at the hospital, where he runs into his former bishop. The bishop says he was praying and thinking of Brian earlier and now here he is again. Brian's like, "Yeah, great," and tries to walk off, but the bishop points out that his six month suspension is up now. Brian says it went fast. The bishop asks if he's thought about coming back to the church and Brian says, "Not so much." The bishop tells him God might be calling him back, but Brian says he's not. He wants the bishop to give God a message for him, though: "The fact that we're all dragged here through time and space and then made to suffer and die? Really sucks." Amen.
Nola's walking down the street, being stalked by Jeremy, all dressed in black with dark glasses. She gets into a limo with, of course, Simon. Jeremy's shocked!
After a commercial break, Nola walks into Patrick's office, and Jeremy's there waiting. He grills her about "seeing Simon Elder." She tries to ignore it by asking about the permits from the mayor again, but he's not going to be led off topic. She says she's not seeing him, but he says he followed her, so she can spare the lies. She says this is harassment, and it's none of his business, but he says he's telling Patrick about how she's been bouncing on the "Corinthian leather" in the back of Simon's limo. Then he calls her "Trampolina!" Can I just say that whoever gets to write Jeremy's slang must have the most fun, because they come up with some crazy awesome stuff. He tells her that if she likes Simon for his jewelry, he can wear jewelry too. She tells him she's not sleeping with Simon, but she meets with him from time to time because he helped her father out once, and he now has control of her brother and won't tell her where he is. What does that mean? "Control"? That is called kidnapping, I think. Nola: Go to the cops. But Jeremy says he's going to get her out of this. She tells him that he can't let on he knows or her brother could be in serious danger. Again: cops.
