Tyler's brother knocks on Nolan's front door but doesn't see him writhing on the floor tied to the chair. Meanwhile, Dec and Charlotte arrive at Casa Emily. Victoria's never happy to see Declan, but she does her best to fake it. Emanda asks everyone to head down to the beach now that everything's ready. Tyler enters through a side door as everyone has exited. Back at the Fortress, Nolan's yelling gets the attention of Dr. Barrow. Nolan manages to get his gag loose and tells Tyler's brother where there's a spare key.
Emanda and Amily get an opportunity to compare notes on Jack. Ems generously tells Amily Jack's a keeper while Conrad finds Victoria and asks if she was aware Amanda Clarke is there and has been back in the Hamptons for a while. Victoria says she didn't tell Conrad sooner because she wanted to get a look for herself and so far isn't very impressed by this cheap-shoe-wearing girl. The word she's looking for is "stripper."
Now freed from the not-fun kind of bondage, Nolan places a panicked call to Emanda, but foolishly blurts out his warning that Tyler's on his way before waiting for her answer. Instead, Tyler has answered Emanda's phone. This is totally going to be in one of those AT&T commercials for 4G LTE where everyone's an asshole because they get info first.
Back at the party, Conrad has Declan's attention and apologizes for Victoria's bribery attempt. He's obviously trying to win Charlotte's favor ahead of Victoria through her greasy boyfriend. He tells Dec not to hesitate if he ever needs anything. Emanda stands up at the head of the table to give a toast to the Grayson family. Dan follows up with a toast of his own to Ems becoming a part of their lives. Victoria takes this opportunity to hand over her gift to Dan. It's a huge scrapbook she's supposedly been making since he was born. Not sure if genuine or stolen idea. They have a heartfelt hug. Emanda figures this is as good a time as any to go inside the cake. Not like there's a homicidal maniac waiting inside or anything.
Tyler is inside rifling through cabinets. He stops on the rug where Emanda has the infinity x infinity box stashed. Before he can open the secret compartment to see what's inside, Emanda walks in. Ty comes up behind her and demands the web cam. She plays dumb and suggests he leave. He calls her a bitch and advances on her, so she gives him a good shove back. Sensing she needs to distract this maniac, Emanda tells him the Graysons don't like him and Dan's always known he's a leach. She says she's always seen him for an impotent misfit who's always going to be on the outside looking in. As she says all this, she holds his gaze and creeps closer to him, slipping something into Ty's pocket. Tyler steps back and opens up the desk, pulling out Emanda's gun. How uncharacteristically careless of the girl with the infinity tattoo.
