and Hope arrive at the mansion for the wedding rehearsal. It's snowing out
and the roads are getting bad. Maggie is excited to have her new family.
Across the room, Daniel isn't so happy. He downs some booze. Maggie wants to
chat with him. He's not enthusiastic because he's still uncomfortable with
this situation. She doesn't want them to lose the friendship they already
have over this. Maggie moves on to giving Mel a birthday gift. "Can I call
you grandma?" Mel asks. They giggle and hug. Daniel watches with dismay. He
drifts into the hall. Victor follows him and they discuss the situation.

He's apologetic and tells her he needs her... to help him prep for
interviews. He misses their conversations with flying plates and suggests
they have dinner in front of the fireplace. Over a meal, she helps him get
ready for interviews. She's sure he's ready. "We spar so well together," he
says. He explains that all of the servants have been sent home so he needs
to get the champagne himself. Nicole accuses him of setting this up. He
guffaws and claims he's not after her virtue. "The last thing I want to do
is screw...uh things up," he says. After he doles out compliments, the power
goes out. Elvis goes off to turn the generators on. That fails, but he has

food order. It's not coming. All of the roads have been closed so he gets a
crowbar and breaks into a vending machine. They feed each other chips until
he notices her "Big Lebowski" wallpaper. She could never be serious about a
man who doesn't love it as much as she does. Madison begins telling him
about her childhood. Her father abandoned the family for a stripper and she
was stuck looking after three younger siblings until her mom died of cancer.

puts on her playlist, he gets her to start dancing with him. This leads to

more to it than that. When Gus nearly killed her, he realized that losing
her would mean losing the only person who has ever understood him. "We're
meant to be together," he says. There was a time when hearing that would
have made her cry in joy, but too much has happened. He promises that he's
changed and she's the only one for him. She refuses to trust him with her
heart again after she's been hurt so many times. Almost dying made her
reflect on how terrified she's been to be alone. He just wants them to

that big," she says. "Take a chance on me," he says, leaning in for a snog
and nose rub. They have sex again and then she stops him because this is too
confusing. She's sure they will hurt each other again. He begs for a chance
to restore their trust. Nicole gets dressed instead and tells him her

and take the kids back. Things can always be like they were last night. "I'm
sorry," she says, walking out and sobbing.
