After cutting the brake lines on Natalie’s car, she asks her and Jared to drive to the vineyard to pick up some wine for dinner. Things don’t go as planned, however, when Viki ends up driving Natalie’ car. Tess could care less if Viki dies in a car crash, but is disheartened that Natalie and Jared won’t. Using her wits, Tess quickly devises a Plan B and places poison in the risotto she is making for Natalie and Jared. Meanwhile, David discovers Rohypnol, aka the date rape drug, in Dorian’s medical bag. After confronting her, David leaves Dorian stranded on the side of the road. Nearby, Viki begins to notice that something isn’t quite right with Natalie’s car. As Jessica emerges just long enough to prevent Natalie and Jared from consuming the poison risotto, Viki nearly plows Dorian down with the car. Viki agrees to give Dorian a ride, with neither of them aware of the tampered brakes. Dorian hurls accusations at Viki concerning Charlie, which Viki refuses to believe. Afterward, Dorian receives the shock of her life when she and Viki are in a car accident as a result of Tess tampering with the brakes.
