Emily asks Nolan to hack into the white-haired man’s cell phone before heading off to meet Victoria, who realizes Daniel still has feelings for his ex-fiancée. The queen makes it clear that she wants Emily to cut off all ties with the Graysons effective immediately. She didn’t say anything about Amanda though. Emily wants her to crash Victoria’s upcoming press conference to deliver a version of one of her father’s journals to Charlotte. This will have to be kept a secret from Jack. He’s already peeved that Charlotte gave her half-sis a $5,000 gift card for the baby. Jack later thanks Emily for always having his back.
Aiden finds the flight recorder to the downed plane in the motel room. He also runs into the manager of the place. We recognize this woman immediately as Emily’s mother, Kara. Aiden claims he’s a cop, but Kara doesn’t buy it. Later, Aiden mistakenly attacks Nolan until Emily breaks things up. She switches SIM cards in the white-haired man’s bullet-holed phone. Emily turns over all the contents the white-haired man had on him with the exception of a pocket watch. In exchange, Aiden will turn over the flight recorder. A flashback lets us know that these two were once a hot item until Aiden took off to get revenge on the person who took his sister.
