In the next room, Conrad tosses sheets of Daniel's poetry into the fireplace one-by-one. Victoria jokes that it can't be that bad. Conrad thinks it is, and chooses to read this poem of Daniel's: "We speak in hushed voices so as not to wake our memories / The things we've done, the things we'll continue to do for fear of breaking the cycle / How fierce we were when we were young / when we were unafraid of coming unhinged." The plan is for Conrad to pay off some publishers to provide polite rejection letters to Daniel's future writing submissions. That's cold, dad.
Speaking of cold, Conrad just finished wiring some money to Ben Greevy. His entire relationship with Marion was orchestrated, including their supposedly serendipitous meeting on the cruise. All of this was a huge charade just so Victoria could enact revenge on the woman who had cast a dark shadow over her since she was 15. Conrad asks if the darkness has been lifted. Victoria: "Ask me tomorrow."
Carl takes a sip from his flask, waiting out on the dock behind the bar in the darkness. When Mr. Ryan appears from around the corner, Carl tosses him a manila envelope with the cash. Ryan takes this opportunity to suggest Carl talk to his buddies on the docks who are still holding out. Just then, gunshots go off from the shadows. It's Matt with Carl's gun. Mr. Ryan falls off the dock and into the harbor. Carl can't believe what his friend just did. Matt explains that his daughter was the victim of a hit-and-run accident tonight, with Mr. Ryan almost certainly responsible. They're in this together now. Thinking quick, Carl figures the gunshots probably alerted some people, and, in fact, Jack was one of them. Carl hops up on "the Amanda" and starts up the engine so he can claim that the gunshots Jack heard were really backfires of the engine. The secret is safe between Carl and Matt for now.
