Mr. Takeda is talking with Conrad while Daniel and Emanda watch from a distance. Daniel fears he didn't do much to impress him business-wise. Elsewhere at the party, Tyler is having trouble closing a deal with anyone and angrily says as much to Ashley. He asks her to go get him a drink when he notices Nolan enter the party. Tyler goes up to him and warns that he better not be wasting his time which he could be using to talk to actual interested investors. Nolan looks over at Emanda who gives him a look to echo her earlier sentiment of, "Then handle him," and he asks Tyler if they can negotiate in private. Tyler obliges. Back over at Emanda and Daniel's corner of the party, Victoria walks up to them and compliments them on being an attractive couple. Daniel calls out his mother for that being a pretty weak attempt at an apology, so she gives a proper apology directly to Emanda. She accepts and excuses herself, telling Daniel to be nice to his mother because she's the only one he'll ever have. Victoria asks Daniel to come home so she won't be alone, but Daniel says she'll be fine because he's just down the beach. Conrad calls out to him, so he walks away, leaving his mom hanging.
Tyler has taken Nolan into the pool house for privacy. Nolan lays down conditions for a business deal. First off, no more lying or stealing. Agreed. Tyler is obviously just going with whatever Nolan says and there's obviously no substance behind any of his concessions. The second condition is Nolan wants more "quality time." Done. And we have a deal. Nolan says he will have his guy wire funds to Tyler next week. Splendid. Tyler starts to walk away, but Nolan stops him to ask for a little thank you. Tyler is like, "Ugh... fine, we can get all manwhore up in here if we have to." He gets on his tip-toes and presses his lips to Nolan's. Glass crashes to the floor at Ashley's feet. She is standing in the doorway, frozen like a British deer in headlights. Nolan: "Oh, hi, Ash. Love the dress." She runs out of the pool house with Tyler chasing after her. Nolan hurries over to Tyler's bag, starts digging through it and finds Lydia's speech. Mission accomplished.
Ashley gets all the way to the front door of Grayson Manor before Tyler catches up to her. She's already beating herself up about being too stupid to see that her boyfriend is gay. Tyler explains that he is simply what he needs to be when he needs to be, and that has closed him a deal worth $20 million. He turns it around on her and rebukes her for continuing to be a lackey for Mrs. Grayson, challenging her to "get in the game." They were supposed to have given up being too nice all the time. Conrad interrupts and asks if he can take Tyler aside. Ashley's still fuming when Tyler goes off with Conrad.
