Synopsis:

(From ABC)
The Grayson 4th of July parties are legendary, but this year's festivities ignite the wrong kind of fireworks when an incriminating surveillance video pops up and breaks the bond of trust between the Graysons and their head of security, Frank. Frank won't go down without a fight, which will spell trouble for Nolan and Emily. Meanwhile, the tension between Emily and Tyler will come to a head, Daniel can't seem to catch a break, and both of the Porter boys make bold moves to get their girl.


(Recap From ABC)
Lydia Davis is clinging to life in a coma. Rapid falls from five-story buildings tend to have that effect on people. Nolan shows Emily video footage from the night Lydia went over the balcony. The plan is to place all blame on Frank the security guy. A short time later, Nolan sends an encrypted email to Conrad. The video link inside is titled ďThe Truth About Lydia.Ē Click!

After Conrad views the video, he gives Frank his walking papers along with a sizeable severance check. He tells Victoria that thereís always a chance that their former security man may do to them what he did to Lydia. Thatís why he has a gun handy. Frank pays Victoria a late night visit. He says that whatever he did, he did it for her. This security man is not about to go away quietly, especially after he learns Nolan was in Emilyís building the night she took a nosedive.

Jack pops by to fix Emilyís porch swing. He was one of the first people to ever use it, as he used to know the family that lived there. The trip down memory lane is interrupted by Daniel, who will be starting work at the Stowaway. That means he wonít be in attendance at his familyís big 4th of July party. Right now, he must try to cool Tyler down after his girlfriend embarrasses him during a double date conversation. Itís obvious Emily doesnít like her boyfriendís best friend at all.

Declan takes to the high seas to haul in some lobsters. Heís trying to put together enough cash to take Charlotte out on a real date. Too bad he was poaching them from traps set by some local fishermen. Decís about to get pulverized until Daniel offers to make good on all the money the fisherman lost. Declan only did what he did in an attempt to win over a girl who is way out of his league. Jack can relate. Thatís why he and his brother are crashing the Graysonís 4th of July party.

At the big Independence Day bash, Declan informs Charlotte that he canít possibly compete with her lavish lifestyle. Much to Decís delight, heís informed that he doesnít have to, which is why they later share a kiss by the water. The kid moves fast.

Tyler pops by the Stowaway to con Daniel into doing a shot with him. He asks for the good stuff from the top shelf only so he can slip something in his best budís glass. It doesnít take long before Daniel starts feeling woozy from the drug. Tyler drags him into a back room where he tries to get him to lay down in bed with him. When Daniel pushes him away, a frustrated Tyler steps outside to bash his head against a post. He tells Victoria that her son is the one who hurt him.

Much like his brother, Jack makes his move, too. He drags Emily outside where opens up about his feelings for her as fireworks fill the sky. Itís a genuine, heartfelt speech. But Emily canít reciprocate even though we get the sense that she desperately wants to. As for Jack, he returns to the Stowaway to find Daniel passed out in the back room.

Emily doesnít believe Tylerís story about Daniel hurting him. When she confronts him about it, she finds Nolan on the floor of the boathouse. He had just been attacked by Frank, who later catches him talking to Emily. Nolan is scared. He tells Emily sheís on her own. Thatís a frightening thought. As she sits on the bench that Jack repaired, Emily has no idea Frank is watching her from behind. Yes, Emily better watch her back.
