The Stowaway. The phone rings while Jack pours a drink. On the other end is Emanda. She wants to thank him for being brave the other night, but he shrugs it off since the gun wasn't loaded anyway. Amily creeps up on Jack and grabs him in a bear hug from behind, so he tells Emanda he's gotta go. Jack's girlfriend is completely restless in this dive bar. She wants him to be impulsive and shirk is duties so they can go to Atlantic City together. This completely goes against who Jack is -- she's basically asking him to change right there on the spot. He endures her childish declaration that his life at the bar is a "snoozefest" before firmly telling her he can't go. "I wonder if you'd say no to Emily Thorne," Amily erupts and storms off. Isn't that what he just did? Stupid name changes.
Grayson Manor. Victoria has brought Mason back with her. While declaring Victoria manages to masterfully make 20,000 square feet feel cozy, he pulls out a cigarette and cigarette holder (guh) and thinks better of lighting up after a barely perceptible glance from the queen. They step outside together, taking a seat at one of the courtyard tables. After some small talk about Conrad taking up residence at the South Fork Inn, Victoria cuts to the chase. She wants Mason to find out why Amanda Clarke is back in the Hamptons. He can do this by interviewing her under the guise he wants to reflect for his memoirs. Mason's not comfortable with this idea, and he tells Victoria as much, but she instantly becomes venomous. He'd still be writing earnings reports for the back page of The Wall Street Journal if it weren't for Victoria, and he shouldn't forget it. "Trust me, one doesn't easily forget a deal he's made with the Devil," Mason shyly drops his wit before agreeing to talk to Amanda.
