–-Emily Thorne

A figure in a ski mask lies motionless on the floor of a warehouse after having been shot. We jump back two days to learn what events led up to this scene.

Emily assures Aiden that her late night kiss with Daniel meant nothing. She believes making nice with her ex is the best way to get close to the mysterious Initiative. Aiden’s already gotten very close to this group. The ever-menacing Helen Crowley dangled a carrot in front of him that has him believing his sister is still alive. Emily believes they need to draw this scary lady out from the shadows. As always, she has a plan.

Emily stops by the offices of Grayson Global to invite Daniel to wine auction that benefits a children’s charity. Their meeting is interrupted when Daniel takes a call with Helen Crowley. Emily eavesdrops on their conversation about a company called Stonehaven United Solutions. Helen says the company is poised to triple its revenues. She advises Daniel to acquire it. Emily passes this info on to Victoria, as these two are now in cahoots in all matters that concern Daniel. Well, almost all matters. Jason Prosser (guest star Dylan Walsh) has been a longtime competitor with Conrad Grayson in the business world. Victoria intends to use this guy to sabotage the Initiative’s plans regarding the Stonehaven deal. She scores Prosser an invite to the wine auction. Helen Crowley will also be in attendance thanks to the bait Emily sets out while dining on some tasty Chinese food with Daniel. She knows his office is bugged, so she lets it be known that Aiden will be at the wine auction as well.

The day of the auction arrives. Emily, Aiden and Nolan discuss their latest James Bond-ish plan which includes a NolPad that controls all of the building’s utility systems. With Victoria by his side, Jason Prosser gets into a bidding war for the last bottle of wine which ultimately goes to Daniel for the bargain price of $1 million. Afterwards, Helen Crowley makes an appearance. She gives Emily a late donation before heading off to the elevator. Aiden jumps inside before the doors close. Moments later, a gaseous substance filters into the car. Both Aiden and Helen are knocked unconscious.

Aiden and Helen wake up in an abandoned warehouse. They are tied to chairs with hoods on their faces. A masked figure threatens to kill them unless Helen spills the details on Stonehaven United. Aiden breaks free to overcome their masked captor. He shoots his foe twice leaving the lifeless figure we saw earlier sprawled on the ground. Aiden shuffles Helen out the door as a second gunman approaches. This other shooter is actually Nolan, who applauds Emily’s performance as she removes her mask. This entire scene was a ruse to hook Helen Crowley into trusting Aiden, who is not happy with how chummy Emily is still getting with Daniel.

Ashley convinces Conrad that her talents will be useful in his next planned endeavor which involves jumping into the public sector. In other news, Nolan is flustered when Daniel asks about Carrion, an old development project that vanished from the books. He’s comforted by Padma, who asks to return to work if only so she can be close to him. This doesn’t thrill Marco, who is still trying to gain Nolan’s trust. This won’t be easy once Padma spills the news that Marco has been talking to Daniel about Carrion.

An incarcerated Jack believes some corrupt cops tipped off the Ryan brothers, who then planted their drugs on his boat. Declan realizes that Nate and Kenny want the Stowaway. Amanda clues Charlotte in as to what’s going on. The two of them ask Conrad for help. Their meeting does not go well. Amanda realizes she needs to take matters into her own hands. That’s why she swipes Conrad’s watch and trades it on the streets for a gun.

Amanda approaches Nate Ryan in the back room of the Stowaway. She warns him to leave them alone as she reaches for the gun in her purse. Ashley interrupts what is about to go down to reveal that Jack has been released from prison. She convinces Conrad that helping him would be a sign that he’s doing whatever it takes to stop police corruption in his town. This will bode well for his public profile and political future.

Victoria continues to get chummy with Jason Prosser. She lets the secret about Stonehaven United slip during their conversation so her current pawn can swoop in on the deal. In other news, Nolan confronts Marco about what Padma told him. He finds a hidden email on his computer that confirms his suspicions about being in cahoots with Daniel. Marco swears he didn’t write the note, but it’s not enough to stop Nolan from asking him to scram forever. As it turns out, Marco’s instincts about Padma were spot on. She makes a call to Helen Crowley to let her know that Nolan is hiding the Carrion program somewhere inside the company.
