Grayson Manor. Dan approaches his mother in the parlor. She thanks him for his gesture of solidarity, thinking it was a flawless performance. He wasn't acting, he says. Daniel remembers thinking to himself when Victoria was presumed dead that he'd give anything to have her back. He's willing to put everything behind them now. They hug. Conrad and Vanity Fair's Ms. Fisk are walking by and are all smiles when they see this. Victoria apologizes for the interview going awry, but it's OK, Ms. Fisk says, because she got the exclusive from Conrad on their forthcoming wedding. Victoria's Botox is probably the only thing keeping her face from saying, "Wedding!?" Ms. Fisk leaves the two lovebirds. Conrad suggests this is the least Victoria could do after branding him a cuckold to the world and they have nothing to worry about since it appears the Initiative is now searching for WHM. Victoria thinks Conrad is a fool for getting back in bed with the Initiative, but Conrad fires back that Victoria's just as responsible.
Amily comes home to find Jack sitting alone in the dark with a drink. He understands that she was just there for family, but it doesn't really change the fact that she lied to him. Jack apologizes for trying to force Amily away from the Graysons, but he can't take ownership for her lies anymore so he can't commit to her.
Aiden is waiting for Ems outside Casa Emily. Without needing any verification, Emanda already knows Aiden was the one who sent Victoria's forged passport to the Graysons. Aiden recaps the serendipity of it all. The Initiative is now in contact with Conrad, Daniel's out to get his mother and Amily is now embedded in the family. This knowledge reveals to Ems that Aiden was at Grayson Manor the whole time, watching. She asks that he stop pretending he has her best interests at heart. Aiden: "Our interests used to be one and the same." FLASHBACK: Ems wanders in the hedge maze at midnight, looking for Aiden. She reaches the courtyard where their exercise ended earlier, but he's gone. Takeda is there waiting and harshly states the obvious. Her lover has left her. He rubs salt in the wound, explaining that she still hasn't learned that she must close her heart. Emanda sheds a tear. /FLASHBACK. Ems asks Aiden to leave. He asks how many times must he apologize before he regains her trust. Ems: "..." Frustrated, Aiden reaches into his bag and pulls out the flight recorder, sets it down on Emanda's porch and leaves.
