Encouraged by the exposure he’s gotten from Kate’s online exposé, Neil approaches Simon about starting an escort business together. At first Simon is game, but as he tries to reconnect with his estranged father, Arthur, all his old feelings of resentment and anger bubble to the surface, causing Simon to challenge and push away Neil as well.
Further complicating his reconciliation with his dying father is that Simon still loves Emma and she admits to have never stopped loving him. But the more judgmental and overbearing Arthur is about Simon’s life, the more Simon doesn’t want any part of either of them and must remind himself just how important it is for him to find his own path.
Adriana isn’t pleased by the news that Neil and Simon are joining forces to launch a business in what she considers to be her territory. So she doubles-down on her efforts to drive a wedge between Grace and Neil. First she introduces Grace to the joys of self-pleasure and then she tries to kiss Grace, which Grace rebuffs. Undeterred, Adriana has her lawyer draw up a separation agreement that she presents to Neil and Grace. Both are outraged that Adriana has crossed so far over the line but when Adriana shows Grace that Neil has signed his copy, Grace falls into Adriana arms.
