I have three suspicions. #1 I think Amanda's Dad is alive - the only way for him to give her the life he felt she deserved was for her to have his inheritance - and the letter hints towards this and Nolan likely knows, too. #2 I think Jack recognized Amanda during their first encounter and that when he said to her, "I wish you could have met him," referencing his now deceased father, he was looking for a reaction from her. #3 At the Memorial Day gathering, when Amanda and Daniel stayed longer than most of the guests, he told her that he used to be an epic drinker. I believe she has set out to throw him off the wagon, and that she's behind his roommate's unannounced visit. When she left after the congressman's announcement, she told Daniel she was tired, but I think she was striving to free him up so his roommate could convince him to go out on the town.
Wilmington, NC, well actually Wrightsville Beach, has some huge homes on the waterfront that could have been used to portray the Hamptons (Michael Jordan has or had a beautiful home there). I know One Tree Hill and Dawson Creek were filmed there.
I only have a kitchen because it came with the house.
it was just the original pilot episode that was filmed in NC then they moved production to LA

This show is starting to impress and entertain me more and more. I wasn't sure I wanted to see more after the pilot episode; I thought it was going to deteriorate into too much soap opera, but I try to give most scripted shows several episodes to draw me in. This one has. I find the characters intriguing and there's a good story to follow so far. I'm glad I gave it a second chance.

My favorite prime time soap opera!

Okay I officially do NOT like Daniel's roomate..he is a sneaky back stabbing jerk and I wonder what his agenda is...on the other hand glad to see Emily/Amanda enjoying an evening with Jack
but something fishy with the roomate..my first thought was that maybe he was gay and wants Daniel for himself
can't wait to see how she takes the shrink down
ohhhhhhhhhhhh that was good wonder if Nolan helped her in any way
Hate to see Daniel drinking again but that roomate of his set him up good..he needs to be taken down too
from a mother's point of view the doctor violated every rule in the book for doctor's and got just what she deserved

This show just keeps getting better.
ButterflyFaery, I thought the same thing about Daniel's roomate - seems like maybe he wants Daniel for himself. But more than that, it seems like he's really trying to harm Daniel while he acts like Eddie Haskell around Victoria. He stayed completely sober while getting Daniel drunk and making Daniel look bad to Victoria. He made it appear that Emily was completely blowing Daniel off. OR, could Victoria be behind the roommate's appearance in an effort to distract Daniel from Emily?
Did you notice that Emily didn't make a red X through the shrink's face? It was also late in the episode when she circled the face. It doesn't seem like the shrink's comuppance is complete yet.
What was the key Emily was holding? Was it to the storage unit where the Dr. was found?
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
