Ep206 Illusion

11/05/12 Season 2 PG L, V

It’s Victoria Grayson’s big day. She’s getting married to a man who already happens to be her husband. Conrad gives his beautiful bride a gift before the ceremony. It’s a lovely little gun. The queen can use it should her king ever not be around to protect her. Of course, Conrad feels they are destined to be together forever. Victoria somewhat agrees. Her feeling is they’ll at least be with each other until death does them part. They’re such a fun couple.

Emily provides Amanda with proof that she had a scar removed years ago. This is to throw the perpetually bow-tied Mason Treadwell off her trail. Emily also has plans to send him down a new road that will lead him right to the Graysons. She enlists Aiden’s help to move the white-haired man’s body from its frozen storage spot. In a quid pro quo deal, Ems will be attending the big Grayson wedding as Aiden’s date. As for Mason Treadwell, he takes the bait that’s laid out for him and begins a search for the white-haired man.

Daniel learns that David Clarke’s employment contract was seized by the government, so Ashley suggests inviting Nolan to the wedding to see what he knows. One person who won’t be attending the ceremony is Kara, who finds it hard to believe that the man she loved could have been as evil as Victoria claims him to be. She intends to spend the day with her daughter and new grandson. Her real daughter (that would be Emily) catches Kara doing a little drawing on the beach. It’s something the two of them used to do when she was a little girl.

Mason tracks down Gordon Murphy’s dead body in a trailer. There’s a monogrammed cufflink on the ground that belongs to Conrad, who is busy getting married again. He has no idea the police are searching Grayson Manor during the exact moment his wife is walking down the aisle. The gun that killed Gordon Murphy is found in the trunk of his car. At the reception, Emily shares a dance with Daniel. This wedding could have been for them a year ago. Daniel wonders about this sometimes. It’s obvious he still has feelings for Emily.

The police crash the wedding to arrest Conrad in front of all his guests. Needless to say, the party is over. While waiting for the car, Nolan lets Padma know that she poked a rather large hornet’s nest when she inquired about David Clarke’s employment contract. He wants to know how far she’s willing to go to make sure they don’t get stung. As for Conrad, he suspects the Initiative is behind his sudden incarceration. That’s why he’ll agree to do whatever they ask in the future once they secure his release. Truth be told, Emily is the real culprit behind his frame job.

One of Jack’s longtime distributors lets the Porter boys know that their father would be ashamed of the company they’ve been keeping. He’s speaking of Jack’s new Stowaway partner, Kenny Ryan. The guy oozes sketchy. Still, there’s no way the Stowaway could have its grand reopening without him. Charlotte skips her parents’ wedding to help Declan prep for the big day. The Stowaway is packed when it finally opens its doors. Jack makes a brief speech where gives special thanks to Kenny Ryan, who seems genuinely moved by the gesture. Later, Declan skips off to comfort Charlotte after her dad’s arrest. They rekindle their past romance.

Kara sees the photo of the man Conrad is accused of killing on the news. She now knows her husband is dead. Victoria can see the loss in her eyes. She immediately gets uneasy as her houseguest approaches her on the balcony before ultimately wishing her goodnight. In another part of Grayson Manor, Daniel makes plans to have a vote of “no confidence” to have his father removed as head of Grayson Global. This is before he knew Conrad was already out of jail.

After a successful opening night, Jack makes a very sweet marriage proposal to Amanda, who happily accepts. Things look like they are also getting romantic between Aiden and Emily, who ultimately asks her former lover to leave. In other news, the Conrad frame job was supposed to satisfy Mason’s snooping urges, but the bow-tied one has a renewed interest in Emily after Victoria mentions she served time as a kid. We suspect Mason will make a follow-up call to Allenwood Juvenile Detention Center after having had more time to study his big investigation board of Hamptonites where all roads appear to lead back to Emily Thorne.
