Emily feels terrible that she wasn’t there for Nolan when his father died. The two of them are together when news comes in that Amanda is out of her coma. Mother and son (the baby’s name is Carl, by the way) meet for the first time with proud papa Jack by their side. Emily watches this new family from outside the hospital room. She recalls the time she was in a recovery room after the attempted drowning. Her dad told her that her mother was gone. It was a difficult thing for a little girl to hear. In the present, Emily offers to let the new mom stay at her place for awhile. She also lets Amanda know that her own mother is back in the picture.
Victoria is shocked when Kara Clarke walks through her front door. The queen insists she stay at her place while she processes everything. As for Kara, she’s still trying to find out what happened to her hubby, Gordon Murphy (aka the white-haired man). She rushes over to the hospital when she hears Amanda is awake. It’s during this visit that Emily has the first conversation she’s had with her mom in a long, long time. Their chat is cut short by a surprise visitor. The ever-smarmy, always bow-tied Mason Treadwell is back. He’s very interested in chatting with the once-thought-dead Kara Clarke.
