Synopsis:

An unexpected guest at Nolan's housewarming party leads to a showdown that shocks the whole community; Conrad questions his sins.

(From ABC)
With a new lease on life, Nolan throws a housewarming party worthy of The Hampton's elite, but an unexpected guest leads to a showdown that sends shockwaves through the community, while Conrad's mortality causes him to question his sins.


(Recap From ABC)
Conradís nightmares of his daughter stabbing him to death for the fate he bestowed upon her real father have not led to many nights of blissful slumber. Not even a morning delivery of some breakfast pastries from Emily Thorne can dissipate his uneasiness. Of course, he has no idea that his nursing neighbor is also switching up his meds. Emily believes Conrad is on the verge of confessing to what he did to her father, so she makes a deal with Father Paul so that he can clear his name, too. She wants the priest to push Conrad to repent.

Nolan caps the guest list at one hundred for his exclusive housewarming bash. That number doesnít include the enclosure of a half dozen dolphins he wants by the beach out back. Margaux craves an invite to Nolanís party to schmooze him into being a cover boy for her magazine. Jack is on the guest list. Thanks to a little persuasion from Charlotte (not to mention a new suit), he agrees to take Margaux along as his plus one. Patrick is also invited to attend after a chance meeting with Nolan, who didnít realize who he was at first. Speaking of Victoriaís other son, he has moved into Grayson Manor much to Conradís chagrin.

Aiden shows Victoria the offshore account which he believes holds the Grayson fortune. He reveals that he was having an affair with Emily even after she became engaged to Daniel. Victoria relays all this info to her in-the-dark son. This has Danielís radar up regarding Emilyís intentions. This has always been the case with Victoria, who sends her nemesis up to see her housebound hubby. Emily pushes Conrad to answer for his past just moments before Father Paul arrives. Timing is everything. Or perhaps his appearance was divine intervention. Father Paul suggests that by coming clean, Conrad can leave this world a savior. Something to think about, right?

Nolanís party is filled with lots and lots of pretty people including an uncomfortable Jack, who lightens up as he begins to succumb to Margauxís charms. A concerned Emily watches them from afar. Her attention is drawn away instantly when Victoria arrives with Aiden by her side. Let the fireworks begin! Aiden reveals that Daniel shot him awhile back. This is news to Emily, who goes off on Victoria for trying to destroy her relationship with her son. She blurts that the Graysons are bankrupt. The secret is out.

Margaux is furious when Daniel goes behind her back by calling her father to kill the story on Nolan. She seeks comfort at the Stowaway with a drink and her new friend, Jack. In other news, Aiden lets Victoria know that his hunch about where the Grayson fortune is hidden didnít pan out. He believes this revelation will put an end to their business together. It doesnít. Victoria knows that Emily has a weak spot when it comes to Aiden. The two of them will stay in cahoots until they destroy her. What she doesnít know is that Aiden is actually in cahoots with Emily. She called. He came.

Father Paul assures Emily that if Conrad doesnít come forward then he will. He urges her to let go of any grudge she has before she loses herself. As for Conrad, heís prepared to turn himself into the authorities. Of course, heíll have to make it past the vase Victoria hurls at his head as he exits Grayson Manor with Father Paul. Victoria assures Conrad that if he drives off, itíll be the last thing he ever does. After a meeting with Aiden at the beach, Emily drives down the road find a disturbing sight. Conradís car has crashed. A badly-injured Father Paul is face-down on the ground. Conrad staggers up to the scene. Heís thankful Emily is there.
