The last time we saw the Darlings, Karen was having an affair with her father's arch enemy Simon Elder. However, we learned by the end of the Christmas episode, this was a devious scheme concocted by Tripp, who vowed to destroy Elder. But was Karen, as a result, really falling for the techno-philanthropist billionaire?
Meanwhile, Lisa lost her job at the gallery and Nick suggested they have another child. Fearing she was losing her husband to the Darlings, Lisa was enthusiastic about the idea.

Patrick's transgender lover Carmelita was abducted, following what appeared to be reconciliation with his gold-digging and power-hungry wife Ellen.
