EMILY GOES ALL IN ON HER MISSION TO AVENGE HER FATHER - Nothing is off limits as Emily and Victoria are dead set on destroying each other. Lives will be lost and fates will be altered, but who will rise victorious?



Conrad tells the judge at his bail hearing that the comments he was heard making were a result of what he was being forced to say in his press conference. This statement is in contradiction to the thick stack of evidence presented to the court. It’s enough for the judge to announce he is reopening the David Clarke case. This makes a smiling Emily very happy as she sees Conrad taken away from her front row seat in the courtroom. Conrad is also being investigated for Pascal’s death. His lawyer advises him to take a plea deal for life in prison.

Pascal’s body is sent off on a jet so it can be buried back home in France. Daniel comforts Margaux. Victoria is also distraught. She vows to make Emily Thorne pay for her part in all this. As for Margaux, she learns that her little brother is in town shortly after making Daniel her second in command. Gideon meets with Nolan about his sister’s control of MyClone. The two conspire to take down Daniel and Margaux. Later, Gideon tells Daniel that he’s planning to start his own firm while getting him liquored up at a bar.

The DNA test Victoria had done proves that the woman who claimed to be Amanda Clarke was in no way related to David leaving Victoria to suspect it has been Emily true identity all a long her supssions for her were right but her motives for infiltration the Grayson family that Victoria thought was for purely financel gain was wrong . A past memory shows that David Clarke’s father gave him the ring that has his initials on it. He mentions a cabin that his dad built where they’d spend their summers. In the present, Emily wonders if this is the place where Jack found the ring. Someone is living in the place now. Emily gets into a violent fight with this imposter. She gets the upper hand, but not before being stabbed with a syringe.

Emily realizes that the man in the cabin was working for Victoria. She believes he was looking for a DNA sample. Emily eventually realizes there one person who can link Victoria to her father’s frame-up. Aiden confronts Michelle Banks, the therapist who tried to brainwash Emily when she was still a young Amanda Clarke. Too bad Victoria got to her first. Banks drugged Aiden’s tea. It contains a toxin that leads to paralysis. Aiden attempts to choke Victoria but the poison is too powerful. Victoria is able to take a pillow and suffocate Aiden, killing him.

Emily is overjoyed when a news report states that her father’s conviction has been overturned. David Clarke is officially declared an innocent man. Her joy over this news is short-lived when she returns home to find Aiden’s lifeless body sitting in front of the fireplace. Nolan tries to comfort his distraught friend by letting her know that he felt broken for most of his life, and that all changed when he met her. Emily knows Victoria is behind all this. That’s why she tells the authorities that Aiden’s death was a suicide. She wants Victoria all to herself.

Emily confronts Michelle Banks about her role in what’s happened. The fact that she’s sorry is not enough. Later, Emily tries to convince Charlotte that she needs to move her father’s body from its gravesite for safety’s sake. Their meeting doesn’t go well. Emily vows to take care of it herself. She is digging up the grave when Victoria steps out of the shadows. A venomous exchange of words takes place. Emily assures Victoria that she’s not actually digging up her father’s grave just before knocking her unconscious with a shovel.

Conrad is a hated man in prison. Even one of the guards tries to kill him. Conrad prays for death as he weeps. The guard who tried to kill him approaches.

Charlotte suspects that Jack may have had a role in her kidnapping. She goes to the Stowaway to confront Jack about his possession of her father's ring and demands to know what more he's hiding from her. As she begins to turn towards the door, Jack touches her shoulder, immediately sending her into a panic as she recalls her captivity - the tear in the passenger's seat of Jack's car (unbeknownst to her at the time), the material of the car's chairs, and the way her captor grabbed her shoulder as he led her to her freedom. She attempts to confirm her suspicions by running to the parking lot and breaking into Jack's car from the passenger's side, where she finds that same tear she felt in the seat while she was inside the car. She tells the authorities. Jack is now a suspect. A hungover Daniel awakens to find one of the women he and Gideon were checking out at the bar dead in the bed. Nolan is shocked when he sees a photo of this scene. Gideon says the girl overdosed on the coke he paid her with to cozy up to Daniel. He wants to use the picture to blackmail Daniel.

As it turns out, the Prison Guard earlier who gave Conrad a beating has accept Conrad bribe offer and the amonsity earlier was just an act to throw off suspicion now that he’s helping Conrad escape. A Van approaches in the distance. Conrad is shocked to see a ghost from his past step out from behind the wheel. It’s David Clarke who has been alive and survived for past 11 years he was supposedly was murderd by The White Haired man Gordon Murphy on 22 nd April 2003. He pulls out a knife and stabs Conrad, who is left bleeding in the middle of an isolated road Conrad slows dies as David smiles gets into he van drives off into the night. Victoria awakens to find herself strapped down to a bed inside of a psychiatric hospital. Emily assures her that this is all for her own good. After all, she’s been obsessing about Amanda Clarke lately. Proof of this comes in the form of reports offered by her regular therapist, Dr. Michelle Banks. Victoria screams madly that the woman behind all this is the real Amanda Clarke as the doctor injects her with a sedative. Emily bids farewell to the former Queen of the Hamptons. She makes a satisfied exit as Victoria’s frantic screams echo throughout the hospital halls.
