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.
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.
