Frank is waiting downstairs at Grayson Manor for Victoria. He informs her that Daniel went to go visit Sara at the rehab center today, and even more strangely, Emanda was the one who drove him there. This brings out Victoria's conspiracy suspicions about Ms. Emily Thorne. She lets Frank in on her theory that Emanda is the reason Michael left Lydia, and of her intent to prove it tonight at the party. Victoria: "Clearly, someone has to step in before my son makes another mistake." Mom?
Meanwhile, Emanda is getting ready for the party at home and places a phone call to Nolan. She wants to know if the tablet hijacking is complete. Nolan is just finishing his upload of the program to Kingsly's tablet. When Tom opens up his speech, the program should launch. Emanda threatens Nolan that he better be sure this is going to work. Yeah! You'll have to find someone else's intricate revenge plot on which to eerily fixate!
Tyler and Daniel are getting dressed for the evening in Daniel's bedroom. Tyler is back stateside from Italy where he was supposed to be spending the summer. His parents want him to improve his resume, so now he's back in the Hamptons in search of an internship. He asks Daniel if it will be OK with his parents if he crashes at Grayson Manor temporarily. Victoria catches the question as she enters the room and answer in the affirmative. She asks for a word in private with Daniel, so Tyler runs off to go hound Ashley. Queen Victoria is Mom Victoria here. She tells Daniel she knows he went to go see Sara today. Instead of denying it, Daniel asks his mother how she could know that. When Victoria reminds him of their agreement, Daniel gracefully asserts he just wanted to apologize and if it makes her feel any better, Sara wasn't forgiving. Then, Victoria gets a little Mommy Dearest on the topic of Daniel moving on with this enigmatic Emily Thorne. She fixes her son's collar as she reminds him in a motherly tone how bad a judge of women he has been. Daniel calls her out for her tendency to never be satisfied and for her own bad relationship. Victoria can only reply that this is all for his own protection.
It's party time at the Grayson Courtyard! Ashleys everywhere are squeeing. Our Ashley briskly walks through the courtyard, keeping everything in order. The Graysons including Charlotte are standing with Tyler. Emanda enters and is briefly introduced to Tyler , who conspicuously looks her up and down (what a letch!). She compliments Charlotte's dress, and Charlotte responds with, "It's total Kate Middleton!" annoyed and walks off with her face buried in her phone as her mother obliviously questions, "Oh, what could be wrong with that?" Snerk. Emanda walks off and finds Nolan. They have their standard conversation of Emanda asking him what he's doing there, exasperated. You're going to ruin the whole revenge! Nolan leaves when Ashley interrupts and she asks Emanda's opinion of Tyler. Ashley's crush on Tyler is so transparent Emanda has already taken notice and she couldn't have possibly even seen the two of them together yet. Daniel and Tyler walk up to the ladies and Daniel asks Emanda if they can take a private walk. In their wake, Tyler tries wooing Ashley some more and she just walks off, hiding a big smile on her face. If a girl ever did that to me, I would go home and cry myself to sleep.
