The bow-tied one, Mason Treadwell, stops by to see Emily to float a theory that she and Amanda were lovers back in their juvenile detention days. He believes he has a future best-seller in this tawdry tale of two vengeance-seeking blondes who tried to take down the Graysons. It does sound like good read. Amanda wants to take care of Mason “her way.” Emily convinces her to simply threaten him with a restraining order. She’s also trying to process the newsflash that Amanda is now engaged to Jack.
There’s an investors meeting taking place at Grayson Manor. Emily wants Aiden there to help position Daniel to take over the company. She also believes a member of the Initiative will be in attendance. Nolan gives Aiden the check that proves David Clarke invested in NolCorp while he was with Grayson Global. This could mean the end of everything he created. It’s worth it if it will protect Emily. Nolan lets Aiden know that if he ever hurts his revenge-y friend again, he’ll pay dearly. He later finds solace in the fact that Padma will stick with him no matter what.
