Emily wipes away the snow from her father's grave marker to place a rose atop it. She makes a list of all the prisoners who were in David Clarke's cell block the day he was stabbed. Charlotte shows Emily a photo of her father she found hidden in her mother's jewelry box. It's dated the day he was killed. Emily notices that her dad is holding a journal. It's one that wasn't in the Infinity Box. That's because Nolan kept it from her.
Nolan was trying to protect David Clarke's legacy, as the journal is filled with seemingly paranoid thoughts. It also contains an entry claiming that "CM" will come with the truth. Emily realizes that the initials stand for Conrad Grayson's secretary, Carole Miller. An Internet search reveals that the woman died a few days after David Clarke. Emily does a little digging to learn that Carole Miller is actually very much alive. She's living under the name Carole Thomas in Lancaster, PA. Looks like Emily is taking a road trip.
Emily poses as Homeland Security official to gain access to Carole's rural farmhouse. She's caught off guard when she sees a picture of the woman with Nolan. This is moments before Carole points a shotgun at her. Nolan comes barreling down the stairs to tell his Aunt Carole to lower her weapon. You heard us. Nolan is the nephew of Conrad Grayson's ex-secretary. Carole is the person who introduced him to David Clarke.
