— Nolan to Aiden in Secrecy
gfgn

Nolan Leslie Ross is a genius software inventor and also a computer hacker who comes to the aid of Emily in her plot for revenge against the Grayson family. He is shunned by the rest of the Hamptons community, which he could partially be due to his loyalty to David Clarke.  When Nolan first went into business, large companies turned him away and nobody supported him, but David believed in his ideas and invested some of his money in Nolan's company, NolCorp. Nolan, therefore, believes that he has a duty to uphold the Clarke name and, as a result, helps Emily in her plot against the Graysons by aiding her through the use of various technical skills. Nolan's help has proved vital to Emily's revenge and therefore they've become best friends, forming a bond with each other and deepening Nolan's loyalties to the Clarke family.

BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

Nolan Ross is the founder/CEO of NolCorp, with a net worth of 19.8 billion dollars. It is believed that he struggled most of his adult life to secure investments for any of his innovative ideas, and his success is due to David Clarke, whose assistance and initial investment kick-started his business.

Nolan is often ostracized for his quirky personality and controversial leadership, which prevents him from being fully accepted into Hampton society. Despite the fact that he is only seeking friendship, such as when he purchased Jack Porter's boat under the condition that Jack would act as his friend, he comes across as needy and bizarre to many.

When David Clarke was falsely accused and imprisoned, Nolan visited him regularly before he died, feeling indebted to the man who helped start his career. Following Clarke's death, Nolan picks up Emily (also known as Amanda Clarke), who was released from juvenile detention, and explains everything about her father's innocence in order to dissolve the hostility she has against her father being a criminal.

Season 1Edit

1x01 Nolan

Nolan discovers Emily

Nolan's wishes were always to help Emily Thorne (Amanda Clarke). In "Pilot", Nolan attempts to buy Jack's boat called the 'Amanda', but Jack refuses. He makes a recording of the Memorial Day Party, which he watches for his own amusement. Jack calls Nolan and eventually accepts his offer, telling him to bring a check down to the docks the following day. However, when he notices that David Clarke's daughter attended the party, he visits her house and welcomes her home, but she attacks him. Nolan states that her father trusted him and pleads with her, telling Emily that he wants to see the Graysons go down as much as she does. When he offers his help, Emily refuses and when he goes to leave, he stops at the doorway and tells Emily that Jack still thinks about her. In a flashback, Nolan arrives at the juvenile detention center and picks up Emily, explaining to her her father's innocence and offering her the Infinity Box
1x02 Nolan

Nolan buys Emily's house

In "Trust", Nolan presented Emily with the beach house that he purchased after outbidding Victoria Grason, who initially attempted to outbid Emily.

When Nolan reveals that he is actually investing in AllCom's competitor, the stock prices rapidly drop and Bill's company loses billions of his investors' dollars. Nolan later bought Jack's boat and offered to pay Jack additional money in exchange for operating the boat as well acting as his friend. When Nolan found out that the Porters are having financial difficulties he offered to give the boat back to Jack at the end of the summer. Jack reluctantly agreed to Nolan's deal, but eventually grows fond of him.

In "Intrigue", Nolan told Emily about Frank and she asked him to send the videos to Conrad to take him down, so he can encourage Jack to declare himself to Emily.  He brought the Porter Brothers to the July 4th Party to make them get their girls, so he was scared that Frank discovered that he sent the video to Conrad anyway, so he told Emily that he was leaving her alone.

Nolan wants to be accepted as an assistant for Emily plans for revenge as much as for a legally of something. He took the offer to help her in taking down the Grayson's. He has helped her take down Dr. Michelle Banks, and also Senator Kingsley. Nolan helped without knowing it.

When they packed Lydia's things, they found a whale of (dubbed the Shamu-cam) in the box when Nolan got it back from Lydia's. When he did, he watched the tape and saw that Frank assaulted and apparently killed Lydia; however, Lydia was only in a coma. He hooked up with Tyler in Charade so he could stop him from ruining Emily's plan and even had a brief sexual relationship with him, showing that he was gay or at least bisexual. However, he rated himself 3 on the Kinsey scale means that is he most likely bisexual.

Of this season the Graysons become aware, partly of thanking to Padma's sniffing around, that she and David Clarke's investment in NolCorp to contract with Grayson Global, so they may own a large share of the company by extension since his death. When of the help of Nolan's former CFO, Marco Romero and the Graysons seal the deal and take over a majority of NolCorp and left it to Nolan in charge of it.

In "Identity", Nolan, assisted by Emily, personally takes down the Fa1c0n, a hacker involved in framing David Clarke. He sets up a meeting with her at an arcade in Brooklyn, where he holds the record on a Street Fighter II console. He asks her for help with wiping information on a flash-drive from the web. She turns him down, but is convinced to bet her assistance on him beating her in a Street Fighter match. He wins and she begrudgingly takes the job. When she later opens the flash-drive on her computer, she triggers a virus that wipes her hard-drive and alerts the FBI to her location. Nolan crosses over the Fa1c0n's face on Emily's Grayson Global retreat photo. In the end of the episode, Nolan is approached by Victoria, who earlier publicly admitted on Nightline to having had a son when she was younger. She offers to restore his full ownership of NolCorp in exchange for him helping her find her first-born son.

In "Truth, Part 2", Nolan is arrested by the FBI after being set up as the Initiative's patsy for the Grayson Global bombing. As evidence, they use the fact that his program, Carrion, was used to disable the power grid, a fake testimony by the Fa1c0n, and a video of Padma (presumably taken during the six weeks she was held captive by Trask) calling Nolan an anarchist and member of the Initiative.
