David walks to his apartment with Noah who is all excited to be with his big brother. This scene lasts all of one minute, but it's really adorable and sad at the same time how blissfully oblivious Noah is. David will be taking him to San Diego to escape Vanessa.
Lauren lies on the hotel room floor as the room spins. We can hear a muffled and echoed phone ringing. She's Ellen Burstyn in Requiem For A Dream. Laur musters up the energy to find her phone and answer it. It's David on the other end, calling to cancel their dinner plans. Lauren sobs for help. She's barely able to give David her location. David hangs up to rush over.
Jonah and Ella laugh about how badly the pitch went. They walk together arms locked, recounting how it all went down. Ella's got an idea of how they can get over this bump in the road and some damn awesome black boots. Yum. She tells Jonah what they need is Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2 at the New Beverly. Jonah reminds her he has to go get married. Ella laughs it off again and just tells Jonah to make sure Riley gets to see fireworks on her wedding night. The elevator door closes on them and we see Jonah smiling to himself in the metallic reflection.
Violet is finishing up a portrait of Auggie's face with crayons (seriously), which isn't creepy at all, when there's a knock at the door. It's David. He asks Violet to watch Noah for him because...well, she's the only one home. Haha...Wow. Noah recognizes Violet from when she tried to be Michael's nanny, but Violet plays it off by asking Noah to go play with her crayons. David asks Violet not to let Vanessa find Noah because she wants to run off with him. Violet's curious why. Quite bluntly, David answers: "I think that she killed your mom. I'm really sorry [OKbye!]"
Vanessa enters The Complex Courtyard, calling out for Noah. She looks at her reflection in the swimming pool. FLASHBACK. Sydney answers her door to find Vanessa. "You bitch," Vanessa says. Sydney's reply? "Ah, sweetheart, I did you a favor. Don't you want to know your husband is a lying, cheating pig?" Sydney goes for the sure cut that Michael wouldn't have come to Syd if Vanessa had been able to keep him satisfied. Vanessa spots David asleep in Sydney's bed. She turns to Sydney. "David? You really are a whore." Syd says David gets chatty when he gets drunk. According to David, five years ago he and Vanessa slept together. Syd asks, "By the way, isn't Noah five?" Oh snap! Vanessa shoves Sydney back and her drink flies. They struggle and Vanessa grabs a knife. Vanessa's able to stab Sydney in the chest. Sydney grabs a shoe and hits Vanessa in the face with it to knock her off from on top of her. Syd stumbles out of the apartment and down the stairs. She reaches to her wound up around her collarbone, and in the process accidentally rips off the infamous necklace, which falls to the ground. Syd struggles all the way down to the swimming pool. Vanessa appears behind her and stabs her in the back, sending Syd into her watery grave. Vanessa goes back inside and smears blood on David's wrist and places the knife in his hand. END FLASHBACK. Vanessa begins to walk off but hears Noah's laughter in the distance.
