Full Summary

Emily is out of control after having watched Amanda die in her arms at sea. Nolan does his best to calm her down, but to no avail. Ems opens the locket Amanda gave her to find an old photo of the two of them as teens. She learns that Jack is out of surgery. Before heading down to hospital, she orders Aiden to find away to get onto the board at Grayson Global. Emily knows the Graysons are behind everything that happened to Jack and Amanda. She vows they will pay for everything they’ve done.

Conrad and Victoria meet with the Initiative’s latest scary rep, Mr. Trask. They give this incredibly stoic operative the 411 on Nate Ryan and the missing computer with the incriminating video. There’s only one person who can refute the story they tell. That would be Jack Porter. Trask runs into Emily at Jack’s place just as the Coast Guard finds Amanda’s body. He continues to use Grayson Global for the Initiative’s benefit. Daniel knows he’s being watched via a camera that’s hidden in the clock in his office, so he continues to play their game for the time being. He later gives the clock to his assistant as a gift.

Emily realizes the Graysons were framing Amanda so the Initiative would go after her instead of them. She stops by the medical examiner’s office where Charlotte identifies Amanda’s body. Funeral arrangements need to be made. Charlotte searches for Amanda’s foster brother so that her half-sis can have a proper memorial service with more than just a handful of people. She’s able to make contact with one Eli James through the power of the Internet. At the hospital, Jack regains consciousness. He’s devastated to learn that Amanda is gone. Still, he dials up enough strength to face Conrad when he stops by. He asks to have a chat with him. Alone.

Conrad is fishing for info on the missing computer. Jack plays dumb. He has Conrad believing that Amanda’s death was all about Nate Ryan’s vendetta against his father. Later, Jack lets Emily and Nolan know that he’s hip to the real reason his wife was murdered. He needs to find that laptop. He also wants Emily to give the eulogy at Amanda’s funeral. Back at the Stowaway, a distraught Jack smashes the jar of sea glass that’s on his nightstand. He sees a locker key amongst the remnants on the floor. Whatever it opens will likely hold the missing laptop.

Padma is pressured to deliver Carrion or her father will suffer the consequences. Daniel wants to be sure that the potentially devastating program has been destroyed. He appears to be having a crisis of confidence. Daniel lets his mother know that Aiden wants to get back in business with them. They have him execute the trades the Initiative wants done to prove that he’s not one of them. Daniel later promises Emily that he will be in attendance at Amanda’s funeral. As for the Carrion program, Nolan hands over the finished program to Padma so she can save her father.

Jack finds the locker that holds the laptop, but he can’t get past the password to see what’s inside. Nolan lets Emily know that someone has turned on her computer. He tracks its location at the Stowaway. This happens to be where Conrad is making a public statement about Amanda’s death. Jack joins him before the press. Emily watches the scene on TV. She later pays Jack a visit to learn that he read all about her time together with Amanda in juvenile detention. Needless to say, Jack is furious.

Emily delivers a heartfelt eulogy at Amanda’s funeral. Aiden isn’t present at the service. He’s busy swiping Emily’s laptop away from the Stowaway. When the cemetery service ends, Conrad assures Jack that his door is always open after the grieving widower asks to swing by Grayson Manor next week. He also assures the Initiative that Jack knows nothing about the laptop. Jack asks Nolan to come back to the bar to help with some computer problems. Too bad the place has been ransacked. The laptop is gone.

Emily has a moment with Victoria at David Clarke’s grave. A steely look of determination returns to her eyes as the queen leaves. Later, Aiden presents the laptop. Emily heaves it into the ocean. She says, “The kind of punishment I came here for had nothing to do with prison.” Aiden realizes they are about to get back to basics. No distractions. Emily stands alone in the rain at Amanda’s grave. A stranger steps up behind her. He says Amanda once burned his house down. This mystery figure claims to be her brother.
