A meeting between Aiden and Conrad at Grayson Global is well underway. As Takeda's proxy, Aiden wishes to express that they are not pleased with the appearance that Grayson Global can't get back on track, there appears to be a rift between Conrad and Daniel and the hands-on approach Takeda was promised has been largely absent. Conrad gives his assurance, but Aiden says that's not good enough, so Conrad picks up his phone and dials Daniel. He asks his son to attentively cater to Aiden's requests for transparency. Conrad's smugness at handling Aiden's request in short order is short-lived though, because his phone rings with a call from Victoria. Pointedly, she informs her husband that Kara Clarke is still alive. Conrad immediately asks Aiden to be excused. Once he's out of the room, Conrad very seriously asks, "Is this a joke?" No... she's actually washing blood off her hands in the Grayson Manor powder room at the moment. It seems a bit coincidental that Kara would re-emerge after all of the trouble they've been having with Amily, Victoria hypothesizes. She wants Conrad home within the hour so they can deal with the psychopathic woman they thought had been dead for the last couple decades. Victoria would need him home within the half hour if they'd thought her dead for the last three decades.
Stowaway. Cleaning. Declan is forever cleaning. Charlotte timidly enters the bar to return her ex-boyfriend's coat that he draped around her the night of Amily's accident. She invites him to swing by the hospital with her to visit Ams and newborn Carl, but Dec is all about the cleaning. Kenny Ryan walks in just as Charlotte is walking out. He takes notice that Dec's got a little hot number in his life. He figures correctly that much of Declan's motivation centers around impressing Ms. Grayson. He hands Dec a business card for a guy who can get all of the cleaning done cheaper and faster. It plays out like some Faustian shit, so there's gotta be a catch somewhere down the line.
Jack sets little Carl down in a basin beside his comatose mother in her hospital room. Nolan enters, wearing a turquoise blazer (naturally), and congratulates the new papa with a huge cigar. He immediately notices that Jack does a mean swaddle, but it turns out that's the handiwork of Grandma Clarke. Nolan's stunned to hear that Kara has been in contact with Jack and Amily. He takes his leave when the doctors and nurses come in to check on Ams.
Back at Grayson Global, Aiden now sits across from Daniel. Ashley interrupts them going over quarterly reports with an alert that someone has inquired into David Clarke's past employment history. Aiden acts as though he's just been reminded David used to be associated with Grayson Global and would like to hear more about the history. Ashley suggests a meeting with the inquirer is in order and also that the three of them should discuss this matter over drinks tonight, but Ash never suggests anything that ends up being a good idea.
