Casa Emily. Sitting at Emanda's breakfast table, Ashley and Daniel discuss Conrad filing for divorce from Victoria. Emanda walks in and is surprised to see Ashley talking privately with Dan. He tells Emanda the news about the divorce and asks if she'll accompany him to a lunch reservation with his mother. That's not what Ashley had in mind. She grumbles a bit about having to change the reservation to accommodate Emanda and leaves defeated. Daniel laments his family falling apart and turns the conversation to his father probably wishing Tyler were his son instead after he closed the deal with Nolan. Emanda sees an opportunity and tells Dan that Tyler was only able to close the deal because he was blackmailing Nolan.
"Blackmailing him with what?" Daniel asks. Only the pastiest sex tape EVAR!
Nolan's pool. Tyler drops a stack of cash on Nolan's poolside table right next to his lunch. Of course, Nolan's a germaphobe. "Do you have any idea how much E. Coli you just dumped next to my lunch? There's a reason I don't carry cash." Tyler ignores Nolan's eccentric nature and explains the money is repayment for the charges he put on his credit card. A nice gesture, except he's paying Nolan back with Nolan's own money. As a further thank you, Tyler suggests he and Nolan go off on a little getaway to spend some quality time together. Maybe Miami. "Miami's for trolls," Nolan quips. Then you pick a place, Nolan. A boyish grin spreads across his face as he suggests to Tyler that Monte Carlo is pretty nice this time of year.
Victoria waits alone at an outdoor table at a restaurant. She's approached by a man who identifies himself as Ryan Huntley. He says they met before at an art auction and Conrad has asked to retain him as his lawyer in their divorce, but he has declined for his own reasons and would rather represent Victoria. He hands over his card and leaves as Daniel and Emanda walk up. Emanda notes Victoria's slight disdain at her being present for her lunch with Daniel, so she takes his hand and gives a mini-speech about wanting to be there for Victoria to show their united support. Victoria puts on a happy face and declares her marriage is the last thing she wants to talk about, so Daniel starts in about it being weird Tyler is still living in the pool house even though he's gone. Victoria doesn't think it's weird because Tyler's like family. She'd be all alone at the house without him. That is, unless Daniel plans on coming home. He takes Emanda's hand and restates he has no plans of coming home. So, Tyler stays, Victoria cheerfully says before tossing a sideways glance at Emanda and burying her face in her menu.
