It's traditional Japanese dinner time with Mr. Takeda. Dan and Emanda sit on the floor at a small wooden table with Satoshi. While Dan is sucking up to Mr. Takeda's business practices, Emanda is pretending to translate, but instead is telling her mentor she needs him to make an investment in Daniel. She'll provide the funds if necessary. She continues to relay incorrect translations of fluffy business compliments back and forth while she argues with Satoshi. Guaranteeing success for Daniel will give Emanda opportunities to look at Conrad's files to find evidence of David Clarke's innocence. Takeda worries Emanda is letting her heart cloud her judgment. He advises she doesn't let her fake feelings for Daniel become real. He gets up from the table in a tiny huff and walks off. Body language be damned, Emanda tells Daniel that Mr. Takeda has chosen to invest $50 million. Daniel laughs and kisses Emanda.
Nolan finds Emanda having a moment of contemplation down on the beach. He condescendingly strolls up to her in that way only Nolan knows how to do, and asks what the deal is with her allowing Amily the freedoms she's giving. Emanda throws it back in Nolan's face that at least Amily is under control whereas Tyler isn't. Nolan starts making excuses, but Emanda cuts him off to say she's got it all handled. She curtly says bye to Nolan, tosses off her shirt and runs for the water.
At the South Fork Inn, Conrad and Tyler are having some delightfully boring conversation about business in the hotel's little parlor. Dan walks in and Conrad immediately congratulates him on the Takeda deal, of which Tyler wasn't aware. No worries though for Tyler because his commission for his deal with Nolan is already secured, as per Conrad's rules for the competition. Tyler gets up to leave with a comment to Daniel about making sure to give his pretty blonde translator a cut of his commission on any future deals. Conrad notices the animosity and offers up some of that weird advice that blurs the line between that of a father and that of a boss. He tells Dan to use his envy as motivation. This is the last straw for Daniel. He tells his dad he knows how Tyler managed to hook Nolan.
