We flashback to see that David Clarke saved his daughter the day Kara tried to drown her. Emily now knows why her father lied. As always, he was trying to protect her. She also learns that her mom was married to Gordon Murphy. Emily snaps back into revenge mode by ordering Aiden to use his position as Takeda’s proxy to destabilize Grayson Global. He happens to be meeting with Daniel when Ashley informs him that an outside request has come in for David Clarke’s employment contract. But who made the query?
Daniel learns that Nolan’s new CFO is the person who has been asking about David Clarke. Aiden eavesdrops as Padma explains that she wants to know that a terrorist wasn’t handling the NolCorp account when they initially invested. Makes sense, right? Wrong. Daniel knows Nolan didn’t do business with Grayson Global until Tyler tried to land the company long after the David Clarke trial.
