Nighttime at Casa Emily. Daniel is home after his day at the beach and playfully calls out Emanda for skipping out on his volleyball match. She says she was called down to the station to give a statement to detectives in Frank's murder case. To further change the subject away from her suspicious behavior, she mentions Victoria's earlier visit and implores Daniel to forgive his mother since that's the only way he'll be able to put a stop to the power she tries to hold over his relationships. It's the most polite way I've ever heard someone say, "Cut the umbilical cord."
Fortress of Solitude. In Nolan's dimly lit office, Tyler hands over Nolan's credit card and thanks him for helping him look the part of a success. Nolan thinks Tyler looks like nothing more than a thief now. While we're calling names, Nolan must be a liar, Tyler protests, because he had promised to help him climb the ladder at Grayson Global. He can still help Tyler if he'll invest $20 million at the investors party tomorrow, which Tyler will gladly "repay." Nolan: "Transaction declined. Cash only." It annoys me that thus far Tyler is the only character whose response to not getting what they want is to start unbuttoning their blouse. He invites Nolan to think over this business proposal in the swimming pool with him. Nolan isn't interested at all. He has pulled out his whale figurine spy camera and casually set it on a shelf in the room during this conversation before declaring he must go meet with someone less crappy. Nolan invites Tyler to stick around while he's gone as long as he doesn't steal anything. Tyler literally crosses his heart and then immediately takes a seat at Nolan's computer when he's out of earshot.
