Sex and blackmail were the topics du jour on the latest episode of Grand Hotel. A company-wide memo was issued demanding a stop to interoffice hanky panky at the Riviera Grand, there was some baby mama drama, and the person behind the threatening notes was revealed (and swiftly eliminated), and so much more!
Below are the top five OMG moments we absolutely loved from Grand Hotel’s latest episode entitled You’ve Got Blackmail. See if our list matches up with your own.
Baby Mama Drama
Javi (Bryan Craig) dragged his feet when it came time to tell Santiago (Demian Bichir) that Ingrid (Anne Winters) is the woman carrying his child (poor fool Javi), but no one could really blame — except maybe Ingrid!
He tried to broach the subject over a family breakfast but got cold feet. So it was up to enterprising Ingrid to tell Santiago and Gigi (Roselyn Sanchez) some home “truths.” She was the pregnant lover AND they were out of dish soap!
In light of Javi’s impending fatherhood, Santiago had Alicia (Denyse Tontz) draft a letter reminding the staff of the hotel’s “No Fraternization Policy.” The document quickly earned Alicia the moniker “Sex Police” and put her at odds with stepsister Yoli (Justina Adorno).
Turns out Yoli’s secret girlfriend Marissa was noticed as sneaking some love in the afternoon (at work!). Yoli revealed that she is Marissa’s partner and begged Alicia not to fire the spa attendant. In a rare show of sisterhood, Alicia closed the investigation and assured Yoli that her personal life would remain just that.
After knocking Mateo (Shalim Ortiz) out cold during a boxing match, Danny (Lincoln Younes) found himself owing the shady fixer a favor. Mateo collected when the blackmailer demanded a third party delivers the $200,000 payoff.
Mateo placed a tracker in the cash-stuffed duffel bag and followed the tracker right to hotel clerk Nelson’s (Matt Shively) front door. Mateo held the frightened man at gunpoint but when he was distracted by Danny’s vibrating phone, Nelson made a run for it — and stepped right in front of an oncoming delivery truck!
A Sapphic Suspect
With Marissa’s job no longer on the line, she celebrated with a first-time visit to Yoli’s bedroom. Yoli’s revelation that she had been in a previous relationship with a woman surprised Marisa but she refused to pry. However, the audience was made privy to the woman’s identity: Danny’s missing sister Sky.
Danny fretted to Jason (Chris Warren) that if a hospitalized Nelson didn’t pull through, he would take everything he knew about Sky disappearance to his grave. So it’s too bad that Mateo got to Nelson first. As the episode drew to a close, the hotel worker’s vitals crashed and his steely-eyed murderer slinked away — his mission accomplished.
