Ella is standing by The Complex Pool in deep thought, staring at her reflection in the water. David arrives in the courtyard and asks why Ella isn't at the afterparty. She canceled the red carpet close-ups of the dress, she says. Her plan is to spread word about Abby hating the dress to make sure Jane never works in design again. David says that might not be enough to stop Jane and offers to take care of it for Ella. Conveniently, Jane was married to David's dad. He says he'll bury her with what he knows. Ella gets turned on over the delicious diabolicalness of it. They kiss. Ella invites him to go upstairs to work on that alibi of theirs. How romantic.

By the pool, Ella, David, Riley and Jonah are gossiping about Violet being Syd's daughter. Violet shows up and gives Riley a tray of peanut butter Rice Krispie treats as thanks. Ella jokes about them being poisoned right in front of Violet, which just adds another $2,000 to how much I'm willing to spend on her engagement ring. They're all hesitant to be the first one to try the potentially poisoned treats. David takes the plunge and everyone follows suit except for Ella. David and Ella scoot off together as Violet subtly sneers at Ella. Ella tells David she got an email from Jane saying all's forgiven. Whatever he did was amazing, she says, but last night was just a one-time thing. He asks if she didn't have a good time. "I always have a good time."
