As for David, he wants to know about Amanda’s accident at her baby shower at Victoria’s place. Daniel has been looking at photos from his wedding day with Emily. He’s not thrilled that Margaux is still hanging with Louise. He thinks she may be a little instable. Understatement! This becomes evident when Louise listens to a vision of her nasty mother putting her down. She locks Margaux in a sauna. The heat reaches dangerous levels. Margaux is able to break out and realizes that this wasn’t an accident.

Daniel corners Emily in an elevator as she goes to investigate the safety deposit box. He doesn’t want to be hit by the fallout of her nuclear war with his mother. Emily agrees mainly because she only has a small window of time to break into the safety deposit box. That window is closing fast once the elevator gets stuck. Emily eventually manages to get out through the roof just as Daniel receives a call from Margaux about what Louise’s sauna stunt. As for Emily, she breaks into the safety deposit box which contains cash and a flash drive.

Emily makes an anonymous 911 call to lead the police to the body of the man Charlotte killed. Jack and Ben find the dead guy as well as a knife that’s the same make as the one presumed to have killed Conrad Grayson. Jack leaves Emily a voicemail. They need to talk. As for Emily, she tears up when she sees that the flash drive she found is filled with pictures of Amanda.

Victoria retrieves a necklace she had hidden away. A short time later, David talks to one of Amanda’s friends at the strip club. This woman makes it seem as though Victoria was the only person who ever looked out for his daughter. Her words were part of a rehearsed scene orchestrated by Victoria, who pays off the stripper with the necklace she retrieved earlier.

Louise assures Daniel that she had nothing to do with the unfortunate sauna incident. She then cozies up to Nolan at a bar. She actually makes him feel better about his current lousy situation. Later, Nolan is the last person at the yacht club as a storm approaches. He offers to buy the place from the owner. Deal!

David apologizes to Victoria for doubting her loyalties. The two of them are getting very close on the sofa when Emily storms in. She orders Victoria out and slams down the photos she found. She screams at her father for not coming for her. David is thoroughly confused. Then he finally sees it. He finally realizes that the person standing before him is his daughter he get into smile and enbraces he daughter.

Outside in the storm, Victoria walks toward her car. She doesn't see the downed power line resting on the hood. Victoria moves to open the car door. She’s hit with a violent electric shock.
