Gerard is pleased with their work so far. While long-term manipulation has never been his skillset, he admires Allison's dedication to the plan, and Regan's ownership of its consequences.
He has a tense conversation with his children about how to deal with a tragedy, if it does come to pass, but Victoria counsels Chris to be patient, and Chris counsels Victoria to be merciful. He hopes neither of them listen to the other, but then, that's marriage.
He and Regan discuss the future. He has a year, at most. Months, more likely. If she is going to produce a last-ditch effort to save him, she needs to line up the dominos now.
