Episode Summary

EDIT
Hostile Environment
AIRED:
Henry shows Catherine an old home movie of his mother. He explains that she had been sending checks to Tom and Henry for years, but has not attempted any personal contact. Catherine notices a resemblance between casual acquaintance Page Harter and the woman in the film. She invites Page to George's retirement party, and suggests that Henry talk with her. Lily grows suspicious about Henry's meetings with Catherine. Lily looks up Philip Parker's mother and goes to her house with Jennie. Mrs. Parker angrily declares that Catherine is responsible for her son's demise, and advises Lily to ask her about Meredith's disappearance. Catherine grows tired of Lily's questions. Lillian convinces Robert that Catherine pushed for Will to get the job as publisher. Robert meets with Jayleen and offers to help her get her job back. He insists that he only forced her out as a favor to Will. Nate wakes up next to a big naked guy after a night of partying. The man demands payment for the 2000 dollars in drugs that Nate used. Nate begs George for help and promises to turn himself around. George agrees to pay him, but calls Nate an embarrassment and orders him to stay away forever. Nate refuses the money, leading to very unpleasant consequences. Pilar finds a stack of porno magazines belonging to 14-year-old Mason in the bathroom, as well as the binoculars that he has been using to watch a neighbor girl undress. Lily is perplexed to learn that Catherine invited Henry to the party. He tries to approach Page, but can't work up the nerve. He later explains the situation to Lily. Robert gets revenge on Will and Catherine by bringing Jayleen as his date. Robert blames Catherine for ruining his life. He breaks down in tears after the event. Catherine becomes unnerved after seeing Will with Jayleen. Nate crashes the party and makes a toast that shocks the crowd. Beth finds Tom waiting outside and hooks up with him. Henry stays the night at the McAllisters' when Tom fails to pick him up. Catherine makes a pass at him. Mason's dream girl rejects him after he follows Robert's misguided advice about getting a woman into bed. He digs his magazines out of the trash. Pilar works extra hard to please the family because she is afraid that Catherine will kill her.moreless
