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.
Poor Porter Bar. Emanda shows up and is greeted by a happy Sammy. This just goes to show that you should always pick the girl your dog likes. Jack appears and starts talking about how Sammy seems to be losing it because he doesn't recognize Amily, which segues into the fact Amily doesn't want to talk about her past. Emanda asks Jack what the deal is with Amily's childhood, and Jack shares what he knows about David Clarke, which is pretty much what anyone with a television would know. He says his childhood ended when Amanda disappeared. FLASHBACK: Little Amanda begs to keep Sammy because Social Services is taking her away. The agents tell her not to worry because Jack will take care of her puppy. She hands him over to little Jack and hugs them both. She promises through tears she'll come back for him as she's led away. /FLASHBACK. Ems says it wasn't little Amanda's fault. She hands Jack a napkin with an invite for Amily to come by the house to reconnect with warm memories. "You're a really good person, you know that?" Jack tells Emanda. He walks off and notices Sammy and Emanda having a tender moment from across the bar. "You take care of him for me, okay?" Emanda whispers to Sammy. She has to tell him to stay before she walks off.
