Outside, Victoria is directing traffic to the seating arrangements in the courtyard. Michael Davis arrives and gets a warm welcome from Victoria. He's surprised because he expected all of the bad blood with Lydia might have put the Graysons off to him. It's all water under the bridge, Victoria says. She takes Michael by the arm and leads him over to his table so she can introduce him to Emanda. Michael doesn't recognize her at all, and Emanda at least feigns a matching lack of recognition. Who she does recognize is Michael's date who has just joined the group late after getting lost looking for the bathroom. Emanda and this girl recognize each other instantly because she was also on the Landmark Preservation Committee and Emanda introduced her to Michael back then. This girl is the young woman who came between Michael and Lydia -- not Emanda. Victoria has been foiled again.
Later, up at the podium Conrad is introducing Kingsly to the crowd. Tom gets up, takes Conrad's place at the podium and thanks the Graysons for hosting the event. He pulls out his tablet. There are two pop-up messages waiting for him. "Tonight's your big night," and, "Look for the red dress. Happy Father's Day!" He looks up from the tablet to see a hopeful, pregnant young woman enter the back of the courtyard. He looks back down to find a new pop-up message. "Your revised speech." Everyone, aside from Emanda and Nolan, is confused by Kingsly's prolonged silence. His advisor Steve looks around and spots the pregnant girl. He utters, "Oh my God," springs up and runs to personally escort her out of the courtyard. Senator Kingsly cautiously announces he will not run for re-election, is retiring from public life and will return all the contributions he received. Add Victoria's devilish smirk to Nolan and Emanda's.
The political men have reconvened in the Boys' Club. Conrad tells Tom the mistress is claiming she was invited by him. She had received text messages and emails from his personal accounts for the last month, claiming he still loved her and would leave his wife. She had also been receiving money to support her unborn child. Kingsly denies having done any of that. Frank suggests Steve could have done it out of jealousy since he certainly had access to Tom's personal correspondence. Steve denies vehemently. Mrs. Kingsly enters and demands to know what's going on.
