Anton V Launch of Lies. Jonah and Riley relax and flirt a bit at the bar after exhausting schmoozing until a writer from Vogue finds Riley to ask tough questions. Riley tries to modestly brush off her fake survival story, but the reporter persists. When the writer brings up Riley's students, Riley starts to waver a bit in her answers until she finally snaps. Riley tells the writer she's not a role model a la Charles Barkley and grabs Jonah so they can leave. Ella sees what's happening and tries to get over in time to stop Riley. She does not make it in time. Riley has gathered a crowd around her and tells the boring truth about herself. Everyone hears and takes photos. Ella and Amanda watch helplessly. Why is this happening? We're back to square one. Ella tries to follow Riley and Jonah out to their car, but they escape before she catches up. Ella says to herself that Amanda's going to skin her alive. Amanda overhears and clarifies that would not be nearly satisfying enough. She plants the seed that Ella's friend isn't such a good friend after all if she would betray her trust like that. Amanda sets an appointment with Ella for the next day before walking off. Surely this is a good thing. Amanda runs into Melissa who reports to her that Ella did not bite on her offer. Melissa's lesbian antics were all a ploy by Amanda to test Ella's loyalty. Niiiiiice. Amanda's still not entirely convinced of the whole loyalty thing, but Melissa insists. This was some sort of favor, apparently, as Melissa makes it clear that now she and Amanda are even. I would have to disagree, Melissa. You totally stole the show tonight.
Complex Pool. Someone's swimming in there. Jonah and Riley return. "My big mouth just cost us $10,000." Doesn't it always, Riley? Doesn't it always? Auggie comes out of the pool to ask Riley to speak alone. Jonah does what any sane boyfriend would do and says no. According to Riley, anything Auggie has to say can be said in front of Jonah. Auggie is aware that the police received an anonymous tip. Riley goes ahead and comes clean about being that anonymous tip, but she does so defiantly. Auggie is disappointed that Riley did not trust him. Jonah and Riley start to walk off, but Auggie just wants Riley to look him in the eye and tell him she thinks he murdered Sydney. She can't look him in the eye so she and Jonah try to leave again. Auggie aggressively steps forward, so Jonah with bravado steps forward and holds Auggie at arm's length, telling him to back off. Riley insists that she and Jonah leave. Auggie's left to look over to the pool bar and grab himself a bottle. A fine choice, sir.
