Nolan video conferences into his boardroom, which looks more like an IKEA think tank than anything. It's a rare communication from him, but he's up for the occasion since Nolcorp is being audited. He wants answers. All years of the company's existence are being investigated for concerns over his offshore holdings, says his accounting analyst, Padma Lahari, whom he's never met. The very fact he has no idea who she is speaks volumes of why they're in their predicament, she says. And just like that we know exactly what kind of plucky, speak-her-mind character this will be. She suggests that this is a good time for Nolan to look into hiring a chief financial officer, but Nolan doesn't want to hear all that noise. "I may be a control freak, but that is why we're where we are today," Nolan tries to put his foot down. "You mean being audited?" Padma zings. Yup. It's gonna be like that. Nolan's only response is that they should reconvene tomorrow.
Ems comes downstairs at Casa Emily, where Nolan has just finished his conference call. "I don't think my employees have any respect for me," he says. "Why would they? You're not wearing pants," Ems retorts. We see that Nolan is, in fact, in his boxers with his waist perfectly at kitchen counter level. Laugh track. Nolan has no shame because he once did an interview with Katie Couric butt naked from his jacuzzi. Emanda lets this sink in for a minute and asks Nolan how house hunting is coming along. Louder laugh track. As much as Ems would love to stick around and be shticky, she has to go break Charlotte out of rehab. She asks Nolan to keep an eye on Victoria while she's gone. As Emanda is walking out of the house, Amily shows up to ask what she said to Jack since she's sure it's why he asked for a paternity test. Ams admits that she had a one-night stand, but thinks the baby could still be Jack's. She asks for Emanda's blessing if the results prove Jack's the father, and for Ems to stop undermining the possibility that Jack could love Amily back. Ems agrees, and asks to know what lab Amily is using so she can ensure the results, but she also needs a favor.
Conrad sits across from a lawyer in his office at Grayson Global. He says it's unfortunate it's come to this, but his daughter has grown self-destructive and forced his hand. The lawyer passes along condolences from the judge and Conrad has the nerve to compare himself to Job... you know, from the Bible. Conrad signs the contract that grants him control over Charlotte's inheritance. Ashley enters the office as the lawyer leaves. She's met with questions about Daniel. All she can offer up is that she tried to distract Dan from his findings about the company's finances, but it didn't work. Conrad orders her to keep Dan away from their investors meeting. Conrad: "Where is he now?"
