Victoria invites Emanda in. She's living in a rustic cabin. Victoria? Is that really you? This is surely some pod person living in such squalor. Ems tells her that Charlotte might be the victim of a conspiracy to lock her up. Victoria pulls out her phone and places a call. While she does this, Ems steals an ornamental clamshell from Victoria's cabin. Cut to Dr. Thomas leading a search by flashlight of Charlotte's bedroom. He follows the sound of vibrations to Charlotte's vanity where there's a cell phone duct taped underneath. He snatches it and answers. Victoria hangs up. She's already deduced that Conrad must have Dr. Thomas on his payroll and he's after Charlotte's inheritance. Ems asks for clarification on all of this since this whole inheritance thing could be sorted out if they knew Victoria is alive. She must stay "dead" while the government builds their case against Conrad. Ohhhhh... Makes sense. Charlotte was the only one who knew the truth. Cut to Charlotte entering her bedroom to find Dr. Thomas holding her only lifeline to her mother. She begs for it back, but Dr. Thomas assumes this phone, which has a record of many calls with a blocked number, must be her way of contacting her drug supplier. He'll be holding onto it. Cut to Conrad receiving a call from Dr. Thomas while he sits alone next to Dominik's painting, which is still on the yacht. They're going to stick with the burner phone story to reinforce Charlotte's positive drug test. Conrad won't pay Dr. Thomas until a judge grants power of attorney to him over Charlotte's inheritance. Sounds like a plan.
Ems comes home to tell Nolan Victoria is alive. She fills him in on everything Victoria said, and decides she's going to play a hunch. She needs a camera in Victoria's cabin. She pulls out the clam she stole, and hands it to Nolan so he can install a camera in it. Clam cam! As exciting as that may be, it will never replace Shamu. Also, Emanda needs Nolan to run a background check on Dr. Thomas. It's a good thing Nolan suddenly has things to do because there's a knock at the door from Jack. Ems goes out to the porch to have her talk with the love of her life. They apparently haven't spoken since the night Sammy died. Jack tells her he had no idea at the time that Ams was coming back and pregnant. It doesn't matter because they can't go back in time. Jack makes small talk about how they're going to name the baby after their fathers. Carl David Porter. Remembering she's out for blood now, Emanda asks Jack if he's sure the baby is his. The look on Jack's super naive face suggests the thought never occurred to him.
