Casa Emily. Emanda answers her door to find Victoria. She wants to offer her condolences over the ending of the engagement. Emanda offers back the engagement gift, but Victoria insists she still wants Emanda to have it. She urges Ems to open it. The box is empty. Victoria explains that even before the engagement party, she knew their future was as empty as that box. Wow. Is it also an ice box? She wishes Ems luck with her next endeavor and walks out. As bitchy as that was, Ems lets a smile slip once Victoria's gone.
And we see why she smiled as it continues on her walk up to the Stowaway to see Jack. Lovingly, she looks in the window to clandestinely watch him cleaning up. She walks in and offers Sammy's collar. "This belongs to you." Jack: "Well... actually, it belongs to Amanda." Ems is perplexed for a moment. Did Jack figure it out on his own? Then, Amily appears from the back room... pregnant. She beams that her and Jack will be having a baby together. In a daze, Emanda offers her congratulations while Jack stares back at her with a silent apology. Amily blabs on about appreciating Ems filling in for her when Sammy died. Amily is the personification of salt in a wound. Ems says she should be going and declines Jack's offer to walk her out to her car. Once outside, Ems lets the tears flow.
Dan picks up a bottle of liquor in the pool house. Ashley enters and apologizes for how things turned out with Emanda. Dan invites her to have a drink with him, thanking her for having his back. And thus begins the courtship between Dopey and Unnecessary.
In her bedroom, Charlotte looks over the article about Jaime on her laptop. Victoria knocks and enters. She tells her daughter she's heading for Washington. Charlotte obviously has something else on her mind, and she lets it loose. She asks if retribution has ever made Victoria feel good about herself. That's like asking if Wimpy likes hamburgers. Yes, if the other party deserved it, Victoria responds. If not then you forgive yourself and move on. Victoria tells her she's always a phone call away and leaves. It's about time these two consistently bond. Nothing can break that bond. Nothing.
