Nick's inviting Chase into the family, offering him a job and a paid-off house and money. Semantics: They really help you feel better about your lack of ethics. Chase says "you people" make him sick, but Nick redeems himself for a moment by telling Chase that if he really feels he has to go to the police, Nick understands, and that he's not speaking for the Darlings when he says that. I want to believe this moment, but he's acting so much like Tripp I can't help but see that as a manipulative line to get Chase to think he's not like the Darlings. Anyway, it works, especially when Nick mentions the money again. Chase calls Nick and the Darlings "you people" again as he accepts the offer for his silence, and then tells Nick he sounded a lot like Tripp Darling, who must be so proud. Nick looks a little ashamed of himself, so at least there's still a soul in there. For now.
Patrick's watching the election coverage from his headquarters in the Imperial (Darling mansion). Patrick's doing well results-wise, but not so well personally since Carmelita hasn't shown up yet. He asks Nick where she is, but he doesn't know. Tripp walks in, and Nick spots Jeremy grabbing a bottle of liquor. He follows Jeremy out, grilling him on how he got a motion from the D.A.'s office to allow his mom out of the house. Jeremy credits his crackerjack legal mind. Nick asks who he's friends with that has that kind of pull. Jeremy knows he can't keep evading, so he sips the liquor and screams, "We're serving domestic limoncello?!" and then excuses himself to go yell at the help for this disaster, calling the limoncello "Toxic!"
Brian and Andrea are in the hall describing Brian Jr. to a police officer. Brian says, "He's about 4 feet tall and has a face like a Smurf." So cute. But I am starting to think he's going to give Brian Jr. a complex about his height. Why does Brian think he's so short anyway; has he never seen a kid? I mean, it's not like he has other kids who just disappeared from the show or anything. Andrea corrects him that Brian Jr.'s exactly 4-foot-2, and gives the cop a picture. Brian, not happy about being corrected, tells the officer Andrea's the one who lost their son. I love how neither of them acts panicked and no one else at the party seems to care at all. I mean, what happened to all of Nick's earlier concern for his nephew? I get that Patrick's campaign is important, but I would think Brian Jr. would be more important to the family. I know the episode couldn't focus solely on this storyline, so other things had to be happening, but maybe they shouldn't have had this take place during this time, because it is the kind of thing the whole family might get involved in.
