Conrad sneaks into Grayson Manor and works his way through all the servants to slip into Lydia's room. She's so relieved to see him, and begs him to get her the hell out of there, explaining that Victoria has kept her trapped.
Out on "The Amanda," Jack lets Amily take the wheel for a bit. They let the sea breeze rush past them and just take in the freedom of it all quietly together. He stands close behind her with his hands on the wheel, her hands over his. This gives way to a timid kiss. Amily turns around and devours Jack passionately.
Charlotte enters Victoria's room, where she is sitting vacantly at her vanity mirror, to tell her that she can rejoice now that Declan has broken up with her. Charlotte declares she needs to go out with her girlfriends to get right. Victoria hugs her daughter and tries to explain it's for the best. Sadly, she really seems to be trying to connect with her daughter here. She tells Charlotte she loves her. Char doesn't return the sentiment and just asks for her car keys back. Victoria obliges, her face seemingly conceding she knows where Charlotte is really headed.
Boring investor party! Daniel is speaking with a Japanese businessman named Mr. Takeda, played by Hiroyuki Sanada (awesome), and his translator. Emanda walks up and impresses Daniel by speaking to Takeda in fluent Japanese. He responds to her directly in Japanese prompting Daniel to ask what he said. Emanda relates he's tired of talking through his translator and has invited her to talk at the bar. Dan's cool with that. They walk off arm in arm and Emanda suddenly speaks to Takeda in English when they're out of earshot. "I fear I'm losing control." He responds, "You were warned. Revenge is a stony path." They both turn to notice Victoria walking down the stairs. He continues, "Remember, inside the viper's nest, you must be a viper, too." They stare down Victoria who is obliviously smiling for her party guests. The two vipers now watch her intently like she is a rat to be eaten. Takeda asks Emanda how he can be of service.
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.
