|Nolan and Tyler|
|Status:||No longer together|
As the story progresses, Nolan begins to develop feelings for Tyler, who, on the other hand, only uses Nolan for his massive amounts of money. When Tyler later asks Nolan to invest $20 million in Grayson Global, Nolan does so under Emily's discretion. Ross asks for a reward for his apparent act of kindness, and they begin hooking up as Ashley walks into the room.
Later, Nolan lets Emily know that Tyler has been doing Google searches on David Clarke. He started this research project after finding Lydia’s incriminating speech about the Graysons. Emily wants a reluctant Nolan to pull back his investment. This will hopefully push Tyler into blackmailing Conrad, using the speech details as leverage. As Emily reviews the file of Nolan and Tyler's sexual tryst, We can see the wheels turning in Emily’s head when she sees the video of Nolan and Tyler together. She suggests to Daniel that the only reason his college roomie closed his recent big money deal is because he was blackmailing Nolan.
Tyler has a tense visit with Nolan. Topics of discussion include the sex video and Nolan’s withdrawal of his investment. Tyler swipes the flash drive containing the video. It also includes a video of Lydia that could be most incriminating for Conrad.
Nolan knows that Emily is the one who leaked the video news. She reprimands him for his vulnerability in falling for a hooker, thereby ending his interest in Tyler as well as his friendship with Emily.
