Nick's still pissed when he shows up at Tripp's office to find out why he'd do that to him. Tripp says he didn't send in the cops -- that if anyone did that, it was Nola. Nick says, "Nola my ass. There is nothing that goes on in this family that you don't know about, control, or otherwise quietly endorse." Nick says he didn't go behind Nick's back and would never betray him like that. Nick says, "No, you would betray me like this." What? Aren't you guys talking about the same betrayal? If there was one.
Jeremy walks in to the Imperial, where Karen's sitting with Letitia, who's drinking and getting a manicure. She asks Jeremy how he is and he says, "Double grande depresso, mom. Double grande." Letitia says she knows work can be hard. Not from experience or anything, but she heard that once from someone. Jeremy says it's not the work, it's Nola, since she finally fessed up that she has feelings for him. Jeremy says that she said it's too complicated, and Karen thinks that means Nola's seeing someone else. Letitia agrees. Karen points out that she was in love with Nick forever and then he booby-trapped her one chance at happiness. Letitia tells Karen she's wrong -- that Nick did nothing but protect her from the bad guy, Simon. And everyone who still watches this show was like, "Duh." That's right; we're all very eloquent. Then she tells Jeremy to go find the guy Nola's seeing and find a way to make him get lost.
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?
