Episode Guide

Disgrace[1] is the 16th episode of Season 3 and is the 60th episode overall.


OPENING NIGHT AT THE OPERA SETS THE STAGE FOR A DEVASTATING REVELATION – As the notorious Pascal LeMarchal’s unexpected visit reverberates throughout the Hamptons, Emily and Victoria go head to head in a very public showdown.


Grace is at the core of tragedy, for if there's no height at which to drop, no pride taken in a life lived, you have nothing to lose. But once in the freefall of disgrace, the only way to change the momentum is to use it to your advantage.

Emily Thorne

Emily learns that Stevie only checked into the visitor’s log once when she went to see David Clarke. She used her maiden name of Pruitt to hide the fact that she was a Grayson. Emily meets up with Stevie as she’s exiting an AA meeting. She’s surprised when Jack appears. He wants her to leave Stevie out of her Revengenda. In other news, Margaux is buys tickets for herself, Jack and his mom for an upcoming opera. Everyone is going, including Margaux’s father, Pascal LeMarchal. He came back with her from France.

Pascal has a frenemy-ish relationship with Conrad. Actually, they seem to be more enemies than friends. Pascal also knows Victoria. He’s the one who introduced her to her future ex-husband. Now that she’s a free woman, Pascal asks for a lunch date. The queen declines as she recalls he’s never alone for very long. Pascal is persistent. He buys Victoria a designer gown to wear to the opera. He looks forward to seeing her there.

Emily learns from Conrad that Stevie tried to re-insert herself into his business a few years after she sobered up. That didn’t happen. Jack learns from Stevie that she once met David Clarke. She believed he got a raw deal much like his daughter does to this day. Stevie notices Emily in one of Jack’s wedding photos. She later shows up at her home demanding to know who she really is. She reveals that she believes David Clarke was innocent. Stevie offers to help Emily. The offer is declined out of consideration for Jack, who reconsiders his stance once he learns his mom had once received a suspicious piece of evidence.

Victoria has a front row seat when Daniel confronts Emily about her recent lip-lock with Aiden. This will seal a deal for divorce. Or will it? Emily lets out an emotional speech on how she forgave Daniel for so much—like shooting her on their wedding. Who could blame her for finding comfort in the arms of another? It’s a little preview to the testimony she’ll give should they ever go to court. Victoria hires the guy Daniel used to tail Emily. She has a new angle she’d like to pursue. She believes Emily is targeting the Grayson family, not their fortune.

Nolan catches someone named Javier rummaging through his kitchen. The guy is recently-paroled hacker. Nolan met him during his stay in prison. Javier needs a place to stay. Nolan gives him one day. That’s not going to be the case though. Javier put himself under house arrest at his current residence. Nolan’s new roomie helps Jack hack his way into the archives in Stevie’s old law offices. The search for that suspicious piece of evidence is on. Jack gets what he needs. Emily wants him to stay out of it. As for Nolan, he’s looking to run with a web aggregator idea Javier has.

Margaux tells her father that his presence at the magazine is no longer needed. She’s made it a success on her own. Conrad agrees, but the fake ledgers that her father uses for a healthy quarterly write-off say otherwise. It’s his way of blackmailing Margaux’s dad into doing business with him. Conrad even offers him the one thing he doesn’t have: Victoria. Pascal later meets Jack at the opera. Margaux is not happy to learn that her father has extended his stay. She asks Daniel if he’s up for showing their fathers what they are made of.

Charlotte, who is in charge of all things gossipy at Voulez, shows her mother a story that came through the tip line. It’s all about how Emily faked her pregnancy. This has Victoria making a scene smack-dab in the middle of the opera. Emily flees from her booth to find the paparazzi waiting for her out front. The next day, Daniel serves her divorce papers. Emily is booted out of Grayson Manor. This was all part of her new plan. Jack wants to be part of it. The archive drives he stole lead Emily to believe that Pascal is a part of all this. He’s her next target.
