There’s blood on the floor of Grayson Manor. We’re not sure what’s happened yet. All we do know is that Victoria is nearby while the maid cleans up the bloody mess. She holds in her hand the blood-stained Visitor Sign-In sheet from the day she posed as Amanda Clarke’s Aunt Charlotte to get access to Kara Wilkins. She also clutches an unsigned check for $100,000 made out to Amanda Clarke. The queen crumbles up both pieces of paper before tossing them into the fire. We jump back in time to find out what led up to this scene.
Emily desperately wants to find her mother. Aiden warns her that she’d best be prepared for what she might learn if she tracks her down. Ems has Amanda accept an invitation to Grayson Manor. Victoria can have David Clarke’s journals in exchange for info about her mother. A conversation about this is cut short when Charlotte pops by. Victoria says the reason behind Amanda’s visit is to lay out the details for her baby shower. Emily Thorne is persona non grata at Grayson Manor, but they can’t leave the baby’s godmother off the guest list.
