Nolcorp. Padma grills Nolan over past expenses. He spent $3,000 on a dinner with some royals he doesn't really remember. That's almost twice Padma's rent. Speaking of dinner, Nolan thinks he and Padma should go get some, but hold that thought. Nolan's phone rings with a call from Ems. He doesn't excuse himself far enough away from earshot, but the conversation about WHM's phone being fried goes unnoticed. Nolan was only able to find out WHM's phone number and can salvage the sim card. Like always, talking revenge gets Nolan a little hot, and to Padma's revenge virgin ears it totally sounds like Nolan's getting excited to go have a rendezvous with Emanda. Nolan: "Oh, I love it when you're bossy. It means something hot's about to happen. So what can I look forward to?" Ems tells Nolan to just keep his eye on the local news. Nolan excitedly tells Padma he has to go see Ems and obliviously/rudely walks out on their nascent dinner plans.
Jack finds Ems on the dock after she gets off the phone with Nolan. He breaks the news about the paternity test, but Ems says she already knew because she was going over godmother stuff with Ams. He asks for advice on what color to paint the nursery. Jets green or Yankee blue? Ems figures Amily for a football girl, but that's a question he should be asking the girl he knocked up. Jack stops Ems from leaving to thank her for accepting the role of godmother and for being their friend. It's what she signed up for, she says. And honestly... that couldn't be more true because she chose the path of revenge.
Conrad enters the bedroom as Victoria sits at her vanity, scribbling a speech. She says he's not welcome there. So there are limits to how far she'll go with the charade, Conrad teases. Conrad has figured out she and WHM must've been working together. He doesn't trust her. Victoria says she will be leaving for good at summer's end. That leaves a lot of time for animosity. Glorious Grayson animosity.
Casa Emily. Nolan finds it completely dark and empty. Apprentice Man appears from behind Nolan and takes him in a choke hold. Nolan gets in some good elbows to AM's ribs, but nothing doing. He starts to lose consciousness as Emanda bursts in through the front door, yelling for Aiden to stop. Oh... his name's Aiden. I may have missed that early on, but he definitely hasn't been referred to by name very much. He lets go of his grasp of Nolan, who chokes out, "Why does this keep happening to me?" Snerk. Ems explains that Aiden is an ally and immediately asks for WHM's phone. She quickly switches sim cards and tells Nolan to leave; she'll explain more tomorrow. As Nolan leaves: "Nice meeting you... jerk!" With Nolan gone, Aiden reveals that he found a flight recorder at WHM's motel room. He proposes a trade -- the flight recorder for the rest of the items found on WHM's body. Emanda grabs the box of items, slyly pulling out WHM's pocket watch as she drops in the cell phone she just got from Nolan. Aiden insists he's not the enemy and Ems just stares back at him. FLASHBACK: Aiden enters Ems' quarters in Japan where she's resting. He apologizes for humiliating her in their hedge maze exercise. His reason is that Takeda has found his sister, whom he's been looking for and he figured Takeda would've never allowed him to leave to go find her if he had failed the exercise. Aiden promises he'll come back for Emanda. She stops him as he's leaving, insisting on going with him. She's already lost everything and can't lose him, too. They share a passionate kiss, Aiden relents and invites her to meet him in the maze at midnight. /FLASHBACK. Defiantly, Emanda makes it clear that just because Aiden failed to save his sister, that won't necessarily be the case for her. It's not that she won't find her mother, he says, it's what she'll find when she does. Ems tells Aiden to leave. She pulls out WHM's pocket watch and opens it. There's a locket-style photo of her mother inside.
