It’s official. I’ve finally caught up with these recaps. Not too soon either since the Engagement Party episode is tonight which we have all been waiting for.
Everyone had received their tickets for the “Fire & Ice Ball” as Victoria has named the party. Engagement photos are taken, dinner with Grandpa Grayson occurs and the secret of Charlotte is announced. Even in a flashback, you see that Emily has known Daniel for a long time, back in his college days.
While Amanda Clarke has left the “Revenge” party, Jack is nursing his broken heart with the Treadwell tape found under his bed. He asks Nolan to find something to play it on. Jack does not let it out of his hands. He calls Amanda and tells her if she wants it back, she has to meet him. Emily still the owner of the phone, hears this message and decides for Amanda to come back into the game. Amanda between tears at a Riverhead hotel explains to him, “The little girl you loved isn’t me.” Jack still does not hand over the tape.
Nolan tells Emily that he has a way to demagnetize the tape to get rid of the footage, but he isn’t sure if he is willing to do this. In the end, he lets Jack see the small conversation between Amanda and Treadwell. She explains how her Dad loved the lady with the black hair. The lady would definitely help. Jack obviously knows this is not true. Amanda learns that he has watched it and passes the information on to Emily. This could be the reason that Nolan and Emily have an disagreement at the engagement party.
Before Jack comes into the picture, Victoria tries to hold a civil dinner with her father-in-law who absolutely adores her. Declan is also invited to dinner because Victoria is trying to be the best for Charlotte after all that Conrad has done to his daughter. Victoria for once tells Conrad, this is between you and me. You need to apologize to your daughter, it isn’t her fault.
Ashley sees Conrad before the dinner for a list of invitees for the engagement party, but Conrad wants to know what the part Ashley wants to play in this game. He warns her that she is playing for the wrong side.
Conrad after all, decides to try to make it up to Charlotte. Conrad gives Charlotte a big speech about being strong whatever comes her way. At first in the episode, we are led to believe that Emily will be the one who will spoil her half-sister’s life. She has a burned DVD to place in Charlotte’s vantage point, but instead she retracts this idea. What a nice sisterly deed.
However, a mess is made surely when Jack comes stomping through the house. Jack asks to Victoria, “What did you do to make her run away? You did nothing. You could’ve saved her.”
No one has any idea of what’s going on. Daniel thinks Jack is lying. Eventually Victoria must tell the truth as does Conrad. Daniel can’t believe his mother lied about her relationship. Grandpa Grayson is not pleased. He wishes that his son could’ve just kept it in the business. Grandpa wants Conrad to step down as CEO and Daniel to step up. Charlotte is horrified, runs away to the Stowaway and drinks away her hurt in the form of tequila. She tells Declan, “I have no father. He is dead.”
The most important part of this episode comes when Emily walks into her house. A light is on where her infinity box is usually hidden, but it is gone. In its place is a RSVP card for “Fire and Ice” party and this mysterious person will be attending. I’m desperate to know who found her out! Aren’t you?
