Spencer assures him that he has got plans for this evening. David assumes that, since Blair is nowhere in sight, it must have something to do with the Buchanans. Clint and Dorian come in arm in arm. Dorian wishes David and Spencer a happy new year. David wishes Dorian the same. He compliments Clint on being lucky. David informs Spence that that is one Buchanan that he wont have to take care of, because Dorian is going to do that for him.

Viki is in the library. The door opens and closes. Antonio and Jessica join Viki. Viki is so relieved to see them.
