"Sacrificial lamb, reporting for the slaughter. I wasn't expecting an actual firing squad."
The plan to let Daniel (Joshua Bowman) take NolCorp in order to control Grayson Global is progressing nicely. Conrad (Henry Czerny) and Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) are desperately wooing some accented man named Salvador, while Nolan (Gabriel Mann) simply accepts his fate as the martyr in all of this. Emily (Emily Vancamp) and Aiden (Barry Sloane) scheme. Daniel smirks and looks longingly at lost Emily.
So, pretty much status quo.
Also fitting in to the status quo is the presence of the Initiative. They're perfectly fine with Daniel's takeover and inform Conrad and Victoria that they will be working with the boy from now on. Mommy and Daddy Grayson are almost touchingly upset about this.
