Nick's getting ready to do something with file folders and coffee. He looks frantic and frazzled when someone knocks. It's Brian, who's moving in. Nick tries to protest, but Brian knows there's room now that Nick's down a wife, "you lucky bastard." Heh. Brian explains what went down with Andrea. Nick's like, "But you didn't even sleep with Mei-Ling." He thinks Brian should just explain things. Brian notes the "irony": He went down there to have safe sex with his ex, and he doesn't have any, and still gets busted. Well, when you put it that way ... you still went out of town to cheat on your wife. I'm pretty sure most women wouldn't forgive that, even if you chickened out. As Brian rants, he starts unpacking his stuff in Nick's room, going so far as to replace Nick's photos on the nightstand with his own. He asks Nick if there's another bedroom, and when Nick says Kiki's, Brian's like, "Good. You stay there." Nick suggests Brian sleep in a hotel, but Brian says he can't check in someplace because it will be all over Page 6. And he's a Darling and a man of the cloth. He ends with, "Come on. Help a half-brother out." So Nick hesitantly agrees.
Patrick complains to his dad that Watley wants a date, and Tripp says he's going to have to go through with it for the family. There are no other options.
Simon's on the phone yelling about this car blowing up, and how his private investigator found weapon-grade C4, yadda-yadda. Nola comes in while he's talking. He finally stops yelling and gets all apologetic, saying he isn't accusing, just asking an honest question. Then he apologizes and whoever's on the other end hangs up. Nola asks who that was, but Simon won't say. Nola wants to know what Simon's doing with Jeremy, and she quickly volunteers to replace Jeremy in the big, strategic, faking-Simon's-death plan. It appears Simon wanted Nola instead all along, and just used Jeremy as a pawn. Simon says that when his death is reported on The New York Times website, a file will open on a drive revealing where her brother is. He explains to her how and when (tomorrow night after the biofuel rollout) the plot will be carried out, and he'll be dead, for all intents and purposes. Does anyone really care about any of this?
