Grayson Manor. Ryan Huntley returns with results of the DNA exam of Amily's spoon, which by all accounts is the fastest DNA test ever. The test reveals a match between the samples of Amily and Charlotte, meaning they are half-sisters and Amily is who she claims to be. Victoria isn't pleased with this outcome at all. When Ryan breaches the topic of his service to Victoria and appears ready to resign, Victoria saves him the trouble and fires him.
Tough Guy rifles through Amily's backpack at the Stowaway and pockets all of the videotapes. Jack stumbles upon the guy and tries to stop him as he leaves, but gets socked in the face. Jack manages to get in a few good body shots, but Tough Guy ultimately kicks his ass, and then kicks him about five times while he's down for good measure. Amily and Nolan hear the commotion and come running in to find jack bloodied and unconscious on the floor.
Nolan bangs on the door of Casa Emily, his blazer covered in Jack's blood. He tells Emanda what happened, and her immediate reaction is that Victoria is responsible for this. Nolan corrects her. She's responsible for this. She planted the videotapes. How much collateral damage is acceptable in her plan? Nolan tells Emanda she has Jack's blood on her hands, and her eyes well up with tears. She excuses herself because she has something she has to do. Nolan snidely remarks, "Don't you always?" Then, adds smugly, "Nice ring!" as he walks off. Fucking Nolan...
In the shadows below a pier, Emanda meets with Ryan Huntley. They talk to each other standing side-by-side like spies/informants are required to do. Emanda asks what happened because Jack was supposed to be off limits. "You were supposed to control it," she tells Ryan. FLASHBACK: We get a continuation of teenage Amanda accosting Huntley at his office after hours and asking if the Graysons got to him. Ryan reveals it was David who asked to drop the appeal when Huntley suggested their best shot was to pull Amanda into the trial. /FLASHBACK. Ryan adds that Emanda is lucky he intercepted the DNA test on Amily or she might be finished. She thanks him for that. Ryan: "You know I believe your father is innocent, but I can't be part of this kind of violence. Maybe you should reassess what you're doing here." He walks away and leaves Emanda to shed a tear.
We pan across Jack's semi-naked, broken body. Emanda is standing watch over him, taking in his injuries while he lies unconscious. She reaches out and caresses the back of his hand with the smooth of her nails. Though he can't hear her, she whispers, "I'm so sorry, Jack," and wipes away a tear. Cut to Amily quickly walking into the Stowaway with a bottle of peroxide. Emanda calls out to her from one of the bar tables, which stops Amily in her tracks because she's eager to ask a "gajillion" questions. Amily is all threats about trying to get info out of Emanda, but Ems is so downtrodden that she's more focused on gathering up her thoughts to tell Amily what she needs to know. She spills everything about David being framed and her plan to avenge him by taking everything away from the Graysons. Amily asks why she wasn't told sooner, and Emanda claims it was because she didn't want something like this to happen. It finally registers to Amily that the Graysons did this to Jack. Emanda implores her through tears to leave. It's the only way to save herself, Jack and -- if she still cares -- Emanda, too. Now understanding the situation, Amily has reverted back to being willing to do anything for Emanda. There's a new cell phone, fake I.D. and passport ready for Amily. Emanda is always a step ahead when it comes to faking an identity. Amily realizes the only loose end is Jack. She can't bear to say goodbye. Emanda assures she'll do it for her.
