Revenge continues with "Infamy," and the episode opened up with Emily reading a book by Mason Treadwell about her father in the past and present when Daniel gets in. Victoria wants him to move back in after the Tyler incident, and Emily tells him they'll still see each other, pointing out Victoria is his mother. He suggests moving in together after the summer, but she says she never thought she'd do that before marriage.
Emily's next victim
Mason's holding a book event and will be holding a reading at Victoria's. Emily and Nolan approach him, and she introduces the two men. Nolan says he's in the market for someone to write his biography, and Mason offers up his card. Victoria invites Mason over for lunch. She wants him to interview Amanda and find out why she's in town since he interviewed her after the trial. She reminds him that she helped his career, and he hasn't forgotten.
David had hoped that Mason would be an impartial party and the right person to tell his story to. However, Mason had instead taken the footage to television and said none of it was true. Mason "reintroduces" himself to Amanda and sets up an interview. Meanwhile, Ryan tells Victoria that Conrad's looking to divest her from her stock of Grayson Global, but they can control the company if Daniel can get control of his shares.
Meanwhile, Declan went with Charlotte as she visited schools, and she's going to have a lot on her plate, but she says they'll still see each other. He's not happy about their future. Meanwhile, the other Grayson child turns to Conrad about having his trust released since he's staying with the company. Conrad tells him he'll talk to his lawyers, and once Daniel leaves and one of his lawyers joins Conrad, he tells her to add a clause so Daniel can only access his shares when he's married. He doesn't think Emily and Daniel will last.
Emily and Nolan visit Mason at his home, and she sees his recordings. She also finds out he only has one print of his memoirs and is interviewing Amanda. Speaking of Amanda, Jack's not as for her behavior at the bar as everyone else is, and she kisses a girl before pouring shots in customers' mouths from atop the bar. When Emily walks in, Amanda asks her if something's going on with Jack, and she insists they're just friends. Outside, Emily tells Amanda there's more to the story of David Clarke, and she needs her help to prove it.
Why you shouldn't cross Emily on Revenge
At the shooting range, Daniel and Emily are clearly much better than Nolan, and she's obviously the best after Daniel leaves and she shows what she can really do. She tells Nolan that they're going to control the story with Mason interviewing Amanda. Mason used to go by Leo, and he was just a journalist when he first talked to her. She had told him that she had to say her father was guilty or they'd put her away. He said he wouldn't let that happen and didn't think David did it. He asked her to help him rescue her father. However, he later made her believe the lies.
Conrad set up a meeting for Daniel with Sophie, and he promises her she'll be in good hands with their company. Meanwhile, Emily plays Cyrano while Amanda's in Mason's interview, and she has her ask some questions of her own. She brings up Victoria and David's affair, and he says he printed the "most logical" truth. She says he has one last chance to redeem himself at Victoria's.
Daniel tells Victoria the meeting seemed more like a date and about the new clause. He's planning to ask Emily to marry him. Victoria has Ashley pull Emily aside and tell her about the amendment to warn her about a proposal for all the wrong reasons. Mason tells Victoria about Amanda's threat. She had threatened to sue him for slander if he printed about her and David back then, and though he said he had nothing to lose, she had brought up an arrangement. In the present, she lets him know that he really doesn't want to go against her. Unsurprisingly, Mason says he wasn't wrong about David Clarke. Emily was expecting that and had her reasons for Amanda threatening him. She tells Nolan to take him to dinner and hire him to give her time. Oh, she needs time all right, because once Nolan picks up Mason, she enters his house, uses an award to break his cabinet, and takes his recordings. That's not all, and this shows why you really don't want to end up on Emily's bad side. She burns his memoirs and as she walks away, his house burns behind her.
Meanwhile, Jack surprises Amanda with plans to take her to Atlantic City, something she had suggested earlier for them to get some time away. When Nolan brings Mason home, his house is a lost cause. You have to love Nolan's "Bad girl."
The episode ends with Emily watching Mason's sessions with David. In one, he offered up a way to get proof of their affair: asking Victoria who Charlotte's father is.
