Victoria: “Don’t you know that politicians tend to keep their concubines in the closet?”
Ashley: “Spoken like a woman who no one is sleeping with.”
Emily and Daniel go on a west coast getaway. It’s down to the wire for the Stonehaven acquisition. Honestly it’s great that Stonehaven has now been bought because this all really hasn’t been that exciting. There are some great moments though. Victoria sharing any of her plan with Emily is still a little hard to process, but it has been nice seeing them sort of working together. Unfortunately, that time seems to be up. What’s really great is that Daniel knew that Emily was back with him because of Victoria. This just makes him so much more intelligent and interesting. He isn’t someone who can be easily manipulated. Daniel’s a Grayson after all. Did anyone else love that Daniel knew about Emily and Victoria? What does this mean for their relationship?
Nolan realizes that Padma is interested in Carrion. He comes to this realization on his own, which is nice. Conceivably he could have learned this from Emily, Aiden or Marco. It would have been easy to work any of those scenarios into the storyline, but it shows that Nolan is not a complete lovesick puppy by having him realize it. Emily offers him advice on how to handle it, which is another great thing because normally it is the other way around. Maybe she will even get to be his revenge side kick! They haven’t been spending enough time together. Would you like to see Nolan enlist Emily’s help or should he do this on his own?
Conrad continues to try to help Jack and Amanda, but in the end, he ends up aligning with Nate. It’s hard to know what to make of this storyline. Things at the Stowaway have never been too dreadfully exciting, but having Conrad Grayson on board makes things more devious. This episode seems to be setting up most of the upcoming drama. Conrad is joining forces with Nate. What do you think of Conrad working with Nate?
