After some shaky episodes, Emily seems to be back to her deliciously scheming ways. All we need now is the return of our old pal Red Sharpie.
It’s the big day, as all of The Hamptons are looking forward to the re-union of Victoria and Conrad. Daniel and his dad are being fitted for tuxes when Aiden interrupts to tell Conrad that his vetting of the company will be done soon. He looks at the dour father and son and asks, ‘Are congratulations or condolences in order?” Daniel replies, “both.” Conrad invites Aiden to attend, and by all means “bring a date.”
Meanwhile, Emily is trying to help Amanda memorize the details of her scar removal for the next time Mason inquires about it. But Emily has a plan for Mason that will hopefully turn his attention away from his suspicions about Amanda and back to the Graysons. And all it involves is taking The White-Haired Gordon off ice. Literally. Apparently, Emily has been storing his frozen corpse in the freezer of the Hampton’s Dairy Queen, next to the Dilly Bars.
Victoria is in the middle of her morning mirror contemplation ritual, when she picks up that Herb Ritts photo from the prison, which shows David deep in thought (cherry cobbler or pudding?), while The WTG looks on.
As Victoria folds the pic so only David can be seen, Kara flutters in. Every time I see her distractedly wandering the mansion, I think maybe she’s found Charlotte‘s secret stash. Then I remember, no …. it’s Jennifer Jason Leigh. She samples Victoria’s toilet water while pressing her for info on the WTG. Victoria tells her he subjected her to daily torture, and she knows he has “nothing but evil in his heart.” Kara has a gauzy flashback to the WTG stroking her with a yellow daisy … or it may just be the Ambien.
The preparations continue without a hitch. Well, except that Charlotte has decided not to attend, and Conrad can’t find one of his cuff links. The special engraved cuff link that Victoria gave him on their first wedding day, which he holds up so the camera can see in full view. Hmm … that was odd.
Amanda manages to convince Mason that she actually did have the scar removed, and she plants Emily’s seed of doubt about Victoria’s kidnapping, and insinuates that Conrad knew The WTG before the abduction took place. She may even have a phone number that could, who knows, be traced or something. Mason falls for it, which I had a little trouble swallowing.
Emily heads over to Nolan’s office to warn him against attending the wedding, having seen on hidden cam that Daniel and Ashley have invited him to try to get more information on David’s financial contribution. Nolan is going, though, and he’s bringing Padma, because he wants to get to the bottom of why she was snooping around NolCorp’s beginnings.
Before Emily leaves, Nolan receives a call from Mason, who wants him to trace a phone number. Emily’s plan is proceeding right on cue.
