Clarity is the 18th episode of Season 4 and is the 84th episode overall.


EMILY MAKES A DECISION THAT COULD COST HER FRIENDS EVERYTHING -- A grief-stricken Emily tries to repair her collateral damage while Victoria pursues a fresh lead with renewed vigor.



Ben has made detective on the police force. His brother, Kevin, is coming into to town for his promotion party. That’s the good news. The bad news is that Victoria is looking to blackmail him into helping her take down Emily. She thumbs through the police report on Lyman’s death.

Louise is back from her brother’s funeral. She throws Nolan for a loop when she admits that she wants a baby. She has no idea her hubby is splitting his time with social worker, Tony. Jack advises Nolan to come clean to his wife. Tony wants that, too. He’s not going to wait around though.

The hospital board opts to not name their new research wing after Daniel Grayson. The groundbreaking will still take place as there’s been other funding. Emily plans to clear Daniel’s name at the gala for Margaux’s sake. She knows what it feels like to try to salvage the reputation of someone she loves. Emily needs Jack to recant his story. Stevie isn’t about to let that happen. She convinces Jack to not help Emily.

While snooping around for the flash drive Lyman was using to steal Nolan’s secrets, Victoria tells Louise she’s put her trust in the wrong people. This doesn’t sink in until Louise sees an article about how her hubby was out partying with the locals during his date with Tony. She later overhears Nolan tell Jack that the only reason he’s staying with her is out of pity.

Nolan finally lets Louise know that he believes it’s time that they end their marriage. They both agree to move forward as friends. Nolan has no idea that Louise knows he wasn’t being completely honest with her. In other news, Margaux is angered to hear that plans to hurt Emily have been put in play. She tracks down the hit woman who has come to town to cancel the job.

Stevie chastises David for the choices he’s made in the past. Their contentious conversation comes to an abrupt end when David accidentally cuts his hand. It’s bad enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. Stevie swings by the house later to apologize to David about their fight.

Ben is angry that Emily considered trying to come clean about Daniel without talking to him. He doesn’t want her to shut him out. He also wants her to join him at his promotion party. Instead, Emily moves forward with her plan to come clean at the groundbreaking. Surprisingly, Jack is there to back her up. Ben happens to catch site of the two of them together on TV.

Emily steps up to the podium at the groundbreaking ceremony. She tells the world that Malcolm Black was the man who attacked her. Daniel Grayson saved her life. Margaux and Victoria are stunned. However, the real shocker comes when Emily admits that she’s Amanda Clarke. A short time later, Louise is digging through the sand to find that flash drive filled with secrets. She tells Victoria that she wants the truth—all of it.
