Emily had run into Mary at the hospital while she was working.

Mary is about to say no but Emily assures her that she won't be intruding. Mary accepts her invitation. Emily also asks Lucky to be her date for the evening. He tells her that he still hasn't found his mother and worries about her mental state and what kind of danger she is in being on the streets alone. Meanwhile, Mary had gone to the church while Nikolas was painting. She tells Nikolas that he wasn't a very good student in school and failed Spanish twice and almost didn't graduate. Nikolas is surprised by this news since he didn't think he would have been a bad student. Mary leaves for awhile. Alcazar shows up at the church.

Nikolas overhears the one-sided conversation in Spanish and is surprised to find he understands every word that Alcazar is saying. Alcazar gets off the phone. He realizes that Nikolas overheard his conversation and starts talking to him in Spanish. Nikolas automatically responds to the Spanish words and responds just as fluently in Spanish. Nikolas is surprised and confused and tells Alcazar that his wife told him that he failed Spanish twice in school. Alcazar disagrees with him and tells Nikolas that his Spanish is superb and that he must have learned it outside of going to high school or college and it must have been from private tutoring or life experience. Alcazar offers Nikolas a job as a currier since he speaks Spanish so fluently. Nikolas tells him that he will think about it seriously and get back to him. Mary shows up and panics when she sees Alcazar talking to Nikolas in Spanish and how Nikolas can speak it fluently. Mary approaches them. Nikolas introduces her to Alcazar. Nikolas waits until Alcazar leaves and asks her how he could have failed Spanish when he speaks it so well. Mary suggests he may have learned it when he was in the Marines. He is disturbed by her answers but doesn't question her further. Nikolas tells her about Alcazar's job offer and how he would be going to South America once and awhile to deliver documents. Mary speaks up and tells Nikolas that he can't go to South America or he will be spotted and put in jail as a deserter. Nikolas agrees that may not be a good idea. Mary tells him about going to dinner with Emily later. Nikolas stays at the church to finish for the day. He reads some of the bible in Latin and has a memory flash of kneeling at an altar as a little boy/usher. He remembers reading that passage as a boy. Alcazar shows up at the Quartermaine party with Sage. Sage isn't too happy to be there. Alcazar suggests she patch things up with Dillon at the party so they can be friends again.

Jax learned of Sam's pregnancy from Emily and exited the party as soon as he could. Dillon arrived, not happy to see Sage there. Tracy proposed a toast to Alcazar, hoping for a long and fruitful business relationship. Learning what had happened to Sage, Alcazar toasted back to Tracy, to a woman who has nothing better to do than blackmail teenagers. Ned asked Alcazar to invest in the record company, to spite Tracy. He agreed, provided Sage could audition as a singer for the label. Sage was thrilled, especially when she found out Dillon would be directing any of her videos.
