Back at the Stowaway, Jack sits in a chair with his phone to his ear and the cassette tape in his other hand. He gets Amily's voicemail, and begins leaving another message, but this one is angry. Jack tells her he's holding the tape as ransom until she agrees to meet face-to-face since he figures it's evidence she torched Mason's house. We cut to Emanda listening to the end of this voicemail. She's pensive hearing her destined-not-to-be soulmate demanding answers she owes him.

Fortress of Solitude. Emanda paces, irritated that Jack somehow found the tape. She and Nolan go back and forth about how it might've been possible until Nolan volunteers to get the tape back. He's happy to do it since he doesn't want to see Jack get hurt. Emanda takes exception to the implication she's indifferent to Jack's feelings. That doesn't stop Nolan from digging at her for looking too far down the line and ignoring the "mere mortals" involved. Nolan really knows how to give backhanded compliments.
Cut to a large family photo of the Graysons. This portrait is on the wall at the head of the main staircase of Grayson Manor. Victoria stares at it in a malaise. Ashley comes up to her to ask an unimportant question, which gets completely ignored by Victoria. Instead, she asks Ash if she was close to her family and goes on to confide she regrets not really knowing her father. They walk together downstairs to where the photo shoot is well underway. Victoria heads straight for Charlotte, who lounges in a chair. The conversation with Ashley has Victoria longing for some familial connection. She invites herself to maybe have lunch with her daughter and Declan, knowing that offering up some interest in Charlotte's boyfriend might give her an in. Charlotte remains a fortress against her mother's feeble attempts at having a mother-daughter connection. To exit the conversation, Charlotte jumps at the opportunity to be the next family member photographed. Daniel replaces her in conversation with Victoria, and advises his mom to tell Charlotte the truth since he would hope he'd be told the truth if it were him in this situation.
