Stowaway. Jack raises a toast to his father. Nolan asks why they're toasting the guy. Is he dead? You're ten years early, Nolan. Ten years early. Jack explains that his whole family now lives and works at the bar because his dad sold his house to some rich parasite who was buying up all the property where he lived. Nolan gets uncomfortable because he's most certainly the rich parasite Jack's talking about. He excuses himself.
Back at Grayson Manor, Frank takes Conrad aside to give him recon about their guests. Based on what's he observed so far, he figures it must be Roger they're after. Conrad thinks about it and realizes Roger always was pretty tight with David and he was pretty weak. Lydia interrupts their meeting, looking for the powder room and Frank excuses himself. Lydia mentions she's noticed Victoria seems a bit rattled. Conrad brushes off the notion and admits to Lydia he's half of the owning party of the house she wants. If it were up to him he'd bulldoze it because of Victoria's attachment to it. Lydia gets a little closer to Conrad and tells him she can sort of understand Victoria's motivations because she, herself, testified against David to protect Conrad. "Why?" Conrad asks. Lydia answers by kissing him. She immediately apologizes, but Conrad silently walks over to shut the bedroom door.
Treadwell walks into the parlor where all the important guests are seated to ask if anyone has any good New Year's resolutions. Everyone's generally resigned to the idea. Bill asks where the stupid idea came from. Naturally, Mason jumps on the opportunity to spew his knowledge. He explains its pagan roots and January being named for Janus the two-faced god. Roger interrupts from the doorway to say the two-face part is appropriate. Nobody wants to look back at the innocent people they've had to destroy so they can be where they are now. Mason scoffs at the tipsy cynic. Roger turns to Emanda and drunkenly stumbles into her. Frank sees this and comes over to escort Roger out of the party. Ems looks worried.
Stowaway. Nolan sneaks upstairs to speak privately with Jack's father. He introduces himself and the fact he's the one who bought their house. Nolan offers up that it's not too late for him to pull out of escrow. Dad Porter isn't keen on the idea because it turns out he couldn't afford to keep the house anyway. That's why he sold. That and the fact Jack's mom hit him up in the divorce for half of everything and had zero interest in being in the lives of her two sons. Dad Porter would have to come clean to them about that if they didn't restart their lives at the bar. Nolan understands. Kyla also understands because she's been in the hallway eavesdropping on the whole conversation.
