Aiden strolls into Daniel's office, joking about getting drunk. Dan wishes he was drunk after the morning the company has been having. He advises Aiden to just take Takeda's money and run, but he doesn't. Instead, Aiden offers up what he's learned about Nolcorp. He figures that David Clarke may have given start-up capital to Nolan from a personal account with an exclusivity clause. That would mean that any investment he gave Nolan would've be on behalf of Grayson Global, giving the company a controlling interest in Nolan's company. If you were able to follow all of that financial crap, can you please take a look at my portfolio? Aiden thinks this guarantees him a seat on the board at Grayson Global and Daniel a one-way ticket to ruling his dad's company. Dan puts in a call to archives to start digging for proof of all of this.
Mason Treadwell walks in on Victoria searching the guest bedroom for anything Kara may be hiding. He notes how sad it is to see a woman snooping and/or robbing her own home. Mason: "I read your Vanity Fair article. It was like gazing upon your lovely visage, Victoria -- the most elegant blend of fact and fiction." Where I come from, the proper reaction to such a statement would be: "Ohhhhhhhhhhh!" Mason confesses he originally returned to the Hamptons for the kidnapping story, but Kara's return is even juicier since Victoria claimed all this time that she was dead. "I honestly believed that," Victoria says. "Do you... gag a little when you say that? 'Honestly?' " I didn't realize how much I missed Mason being a bitch to the Queen. Victoria thinks Kara poses a major threat to everyone, including Mason. He thinks he'll be just fine.
