It turns out that the party is at Epstein Bar (where else) and it is another electoral victory party for Richard who is there with a cheroot in his mouth. Meghan and Felicity are dancing and the closed captioning says that it is to "Love Roller Coaster," which is a kick-ass song, but sadly another song entirely is playing. Felicity and Meghan go back to their booth and Richard follows and says, "Hey, gals! Yeah, good to see you come out for another Richard is president night. Which one of you lovely ladies wants to do a little dirty dancing with the new president, huh?" Richard does a little of his "white man's overbite" gyrating and Meghan and Felicity laugh and politely blow him off. Before boogying away, he reassures them that "beneath the aura of power, it's still just me, Richard." They start drunkenly congratulating themselves on what a great year they've had and how they can have a "kick-ass time without guys." Meghan proclaims that they're "sisters, doing it for themselves, like Aretha Franklin." Okay, in actuality, you two are the antithesis of Aretha Franklin, with your skinny, white, rhythmless, never-had-to-fight-against-the-tyranny-of-Berry-Gordy-dominated-Motown asses, but I get that you aspire to be like Aretha Franklin. Yeah, you go on with your bad selves.
Knoll takes a glass of water to Ruby, who is getting ready for bed, upstairs in the loft. Ruby thanks him for the drink and tells him that he's "the greatest," and he agrees with her. And you're modest too, Knoll. He asks her if she has plans with Wade and she says that she doesn't want to talk about Wade. They start kissing noisily.
It looks Javier and Ben are sitting on a stoop, out in the street. Javier tries out his proposal to Samuel on Ben, just as a dog-walking woman goes by. Ben says yes, much to Javier's pleasure. Ben asks Javier about his relationship with Samuel. Javier tells him that they're like "two lovebirds in a tree" but that it wasn't always like that and they've had their "Dynasty moments" in which he "played Alexis." Ben laughs and Javier mentions that he once cheated on Samuel with Otis, the water delivery guy. Ben wonders if Samuel forgave him right away and Javier tells him that he had to regain Samuel's trust. Ben wants to know what he had to do but Javier won't tell him because it is personal. Javier counsels, "Every man has to find his own way, his own way of showing his true love." Javier asks him if he thinks that Samuel will accept his proposal. Ben says, "If he's smart, he will." Javier is touched and tells him that is the nicest thing Ben has ever said to him and he gives him a hug. It was very sweet.
