Father Paul Whitley was a Grayson Global employee who assisted the Graysons in framing David Clarke.


Pre SeriesEdit

Prior to the Flight 197 incident, Paul, a smooth talker, was in charge of investment enticing at Grayson Global. After the plane went down, the Graysons hired him to hold closed-door meetings with everybody that betrayed David Clarke and convince the undecided accomplices to follow through. He received a substantial sum of money for his services and his silence. Afterwards, he had a change of heart and entered a church in order to help people and try to redeem himself. He eventually became a priest.

Season 3Edit

12 Paul 8

Father Paul taken down

Paul first appeared in "Sin", when Emily and Daniel came to his church and asked him to officiate at their wedding. Later, Paul visited Grayson Manor and encouraged Conrad to ask for forgiveness for his sins, but Conrad refused the offer. Because Paul has become a good person, Nolan tries to talk Emily out of getting revenge against  him, but she insists on moving forward with it. Later, Emily lured Paul to a seedy motel and knocked him unconscious. She then took photos of him and a woman in a compromising position and sent them to Pastor Saunders, Paul's superior. Paul took Emily to the homeless shelter where he worked and Emily realized too late that he was a changed man. Because the photos were discovered, Paul was discharged from the parish. When Conrad later came to see Paul, Emily told him that an "incident" had occured and Paul had left the church.
