The phone rings at the Stowaway. It's Amily calling from a motel room. On the verge of tears, she very deliberately and somewhat stilted says she just needs the tape back. She ignores Jack's questions, and just gives him an address before hanging up. Ems stands behind her, not necessarily pleased with herself.
Back in the motel room, Amily and Emanda have a chance to talk. Amily wants to know how Jack is doing. He's confused, Emanda says. When asked by Amily if they should just tell him the truth, Emanda balks. Jack wouldn't be too pleased with Amily if he found out she was pretending to be Emanda this whole time. Also, he would go after Victoria, and there's no telling what could happen to him. Amily stares back at Emanda like a child, grudgingly trusting her.
Porter Bar. Charlotte and her mother walk in. Victoria has her hair tied back in a ponytail, big, gold hoop earrings and a tight turquoise sweater. She's a slumming chameleon! She takes one look around when they step into the bar, and vomits with her eyes. Declan greets the two ladies, and starts to crack a "two Graysons walk into a bar" joke, but Victoria cuts him off as politely as she's capable of to ask for a wine list. It's a short list -- they have red and white. Victoria needs a bourbon on the rocks. She and Charlotte take a seat at a table, and Charlotte can already sense her mother is disgusted. Knowing how big a deal this is to her daughter, Victoria feigns tolerance and says she thinks it's important to shake up your perspective every once in a while. Also, she wants to get to know her daughter. In that case, Charlotte opportunistically asks if Declan can join them for dinner with Grandpa Grayson tonight. Damn tricky daughters.
Ashley shows up at Conrad's room at the South Fork Inn to pick up the list of invites for the Fire & Ice Ball. Conrad stops her before she leaves to ask what her endgame is. He can't figure out where Ashley's ambitions lie, and he thinks she's hitching herself to the wrong Grayson since Conrad is so confident Victoria is going down. Ash doesn't necessarily disagree with Mr. Grayson.
