Fortress of Solitude. Nolan pops a bottle of champagne at 9 AM in bright orange slacks. Of course. Emanda thinks it might not be appropriate as she rests her beaten body on his couch. Taking stock of the reasons they have to celebrate, Nolan notes the Graysons are pretty much decimated, her father's name is about to be cleared and Emanda got to "kick the shinola out of Lurch." Emanda thanks Nolan since she didn't do it all herself. He asks what happens with Daniel now. Guess this is as good a time as any to reveal the wedding is off. So, that just leaves... Jack. Emanda plans on telling Jack everything, she says through a smile. Like... everything everything. She grabs her phone.
Jack answers the call. He was beginning to worry he'd never hear from her. They both cite having had a crazy last few days. Ems says she found Sammy's collar and asks if she can bring it by tonight. No, no, no... You tell him now, Emanda. NOW! Alas, they agree to meet up later tonight. They hang up and Nolan raises a toast to Ems' father. They drink to David Clarke.
Collins Prep Library. Jaime giggles because her and Declan's professor totally bought off on their S.A.D. story and they got an extension. A pop-up notification comes up on Dec's laptop, saying he has a new message. Suddenly all the students around them begin laughing and staring at Jaime. They open the link and it's an exposé article about Jaime who was supposedly a beauty queen at her last school and was involved in a big home-wrecking scandal with her bald, married history teacher. She's completely sideswiped by this. "The judge was supposed to bury this. I was a minor," she says to herself before grabbing her things and hurrying out of the library past laughing classmates and one who coughs out, "Slut." Declan notices Charlotte standing among the giggling teens, looking very pleased with herself. He confronts her to say that maybe it was really him who lowered his standards when he dated Charlotte. She's very much her mother's daughter, he says. He tells Charlotte never to talk to him again. Their classmates react with "Ooooo"s as he walks off. Charlie plays it off in front of her peers by uttering a flippant, "Oops," but she obviously registers the pain she's caused someone she cares about.
