Cut to Victoria entering a dark and empty Casa Emily. She looks around briefly until she happens upon a single photo of David on the hardwood floor. FLASHBACK: At the 1991 New Year's Party Victoria spots David for the first time from across the room. She heads over to strike up a conversation. They introduce each other through Bill Harmon. Conrad happens over into the conversation and mentions David has moved into the beach house next door. Victoria doesn't really try to hide her pleasure at this news, obviously smitten with the newcomer. Conrad excuses himself and Victoria to go check on something and when Victoria doesn't immediately follow, he calls after her. /FLASHBACK. Conrad's voice from the flashback carries over into the present because he's followed Victoria and is wondering what she's doing. She shows Conrad the photograph she found as an indication someone's been in the house recently. This prompts Conrad to suggest they let go of this house once and for all. He wants to sell it. Victoria protests, but Conrad cuts her off, citing that she's still in love with him. He walks out. Victoria hurries after him and the camera pulls back to reveal Emanda has been pressed up against the opposite wall of the staircase, listening in. It must be really awkward to happen upon such a conversation when you've been ten years removed from such a complex situation.
Guests are still arriving at Grayson Manor. Victoria greets Mason Treadwell, who smugly comes downstairs with his trademark cigarette holder. He notes there's no ashtray in his room. Victoria calls out, "Young lady!" to Emanda and orders her to get Mason an ashtray so she can set up a place for him to smoke... outside. Emanda turns around and instantly recognizes Mason. "Leo Treadwell?" she lets slip. FLASHBACK: Leo promises Little Amanda he'll free her father. /FLASHBACK. Mason pompously presumes Emanda's just another fan. She sticks around within earshot to hear Mason mention that Victoria must've been affected by David's death. He pulls out the prison photo from the day David died. Apparently, Mason acquired it from a prison guard who fancied himself a photographer. Mason says he's sure David would've wanted Victoria to have it.
With the dining area almost empty, Emanda makes her way through the table settings mostly unnoticed. She's tasked with setting places at the tables. She stops when she pulls a name card for Bill Harmon. FLASHBACK: Bill has his late night meeting with David to tell him he's in trouble with the S.E.C. while Little Amanda listens in from the couch. /FLASHBACK. Next, Emanda pulls up Tom Kingsly's card. FLASHBACK: Kingsly gives a press conference after David's conviction -- which he prosecuted -- praising the decision. /FLASHBACK. A nervous, disheveled-looking man picks up his place card and meekly gets Emanda's attention. He asks to be seated away from "them." He just wants to sit in a corner unnoticed. The man adds he is staying in the pool house and slips Emanda some cash to bring him a bottle of bourbon out there. Frank comes downstairs at this moment and notices the exchange. Emanda looks down at the place card the man handed her. Roger Halsted. FLASHBACK: A close-up of David's journal shows the words "TRUE FRIEND" under Roger's name. /FLASHBACK. Frank comes over to Emanda to ask what Roger wanted. She explains he just wanted to switch tables. Nobody ever wants to sit next to the bathroom.
