“I’m sure in Marley’s mad mind it’s all perfectly rational. She is Donna’s daughter, after all. That whole family is utterly demented.” Iris dismissed her son’s denials with a wave of the hand in order to move onto the true point of their discussion. “I need you to do something for me, Dennis.”
She hesitated, realizing how absurd she was about to sound and hoping Dennis would at least allow her to explain. “I need you to seduce Marley.”
“Excuse me?” The words came along with a choked laugh of disbelief. For a multitude of reason.
“Oh, please, darling, it isn’t as if you haven’t done it before. And for far, far less noble reasons and personages, may I remind you.”
“I’m sorry, Mom,” he was still laughing. “But is there a problem on this Earth that you don’t believe a well-timed seduction couldn’t solve?”
“You’d be surprised,” she told him dryly.
“And why would I be doing this, exactly?” He couldn’t wait to hear the answer.
“Because if Marley is smitten with you, she’ll leave Grant. Which means she won’t have anymore access to our Daisy.”
Iris reverts back to her old ways (not that she ever really left them), Rachel comes to a horrifying realization, Dennis takes action where Marley is concerned, Jen reassures Steven while Chase puts Kevin on notice, Jamie calls Olivia on her games and Charlie stuns Kirkland.
