(From ABC)
When Emilyís biggest takedown yet crashes and burns, she must rely on help from an unlikely source to investigate what went wrong. Meanwhile, to protect her own future, Victoria makes a bold move to secure her independence.


(Recap From ABC)
Conrad is rushed to the hospital. Father Paul is right behind him with life-threatening injuries. Despite the best efforts of the doctors, thereís no saving the priest. As for Conrad, heís going to be fine. Heís also working out his story/lie as to how Father Paul was driving at the time of the crash. After all, the doctors warned him not to get behind the wheel with his disease. Conrad is pleased that Emily was first on the scene. She saw the priestís body on the ground as if it had been ejected from the driverís seat. Conrad believes sheís his guardian angel. Emily does her best to mask what sheís truly feeling inside.

Emily believes Conrad caused the accident to keep Father Paul quiet. She doesnít think he ever intended to confess. Since Aiden is staying at Grayson Manor, Emily wants him to keep his ears open and replace Conradís medicine with some new pills. As far as the investigation into the car crash, Emily is shocked to learn that Daniel gave the police a statement on her behalf. This was accompanied by a little payoff check to the detective in charge. Emily decides to return the favor by providing Danielís bio for the launch of his new magazine. She intentionally mentions his past drunk driving charges. Her fiancť is not pleased.

Charlotte has some renovation plans for the Stowaway. She also has plans for its owner, as she encourages Jack to take Margaux to her brotherís wedding. Thatís not going to happen. Jack doesnít plan on attending. He claims he needs a little break from Emily Thorne. In other news, Nolan decides to do a little snooping into Patrickís background after lifting his wallet at the beach club. His timeout from cyber-hacking appears to be officially over. Nolanís investigation leads him to the sunny state of Florida where $20,000 in cash scores him an informative chat with Patrickís ex-wife.

Victoria gets teary-eyed gazing at one of the first pieces of art she ever acquired. Her fear that Conrad will destroy her reputation by eventually confessing his sins weighs heavily on her mind. Patrick convinces her that she can break free from his clutches. She calls upon art gallery owner Sheila Lurie for a job. As short time later, Patrick pays a visit to his momís new employer intending to fence one of Victoriaís art pieces. This is something Sheila has done in the past.

Emily gets word from Aiden about the salvage yard where Conrad had his car moved. She lets Jack know that a confession from the man they both despise is not in the cards any longer. As usual, she wants to handle thing on her own. Thatís not gonna work for Jack. Heís furious when Conrad shows up at his place trying to win back Charlotte. A short time later, Jack surprises Emily at the salvage yard. The fact that Conrad had an airbag installed in his car and has burns on his body proves that he was driving. Of course, having the automobile as evidence would be nice. Too bad itís hauled away right in front of Emily and Jackís eyes.

There a big reception at the art gallery for Victoriaís first day on the job. Charlotte is proud of her mom for what she is doing. She also gives Emily some advice on how to make things right with her brother. Apparently, Daniel is a sucker for a stream of The Big Lebowski. Works every time. Maybe not this time though. Conrad advises his son to not succumb to Emilyís power play. This is just before he admits that he was the one driving at the time of the accident. Daniel covered for him only because heís finally starting to make a name for himself with the magazine.

As the reception at the art gallery presses on, Victoria has a backroom chat with her new boss. She knows Sheila tried to sell one her art pieces without the proper paperwork. Thatís larceny. Victoria knows that her boss tried to humiliate her with the reception. The welcoming party is now becoming a farewell bash. Victoria instructs Sheila to tell the guests that she is the new proprietor of the gallery. Well, thatís one way to advance in the company. It was all thanks to Patrickís plan.

Jack learns that someone tampered with the brakes on Conradís car. There would have been a crash no matter who was driving. It looks as though Conrad is clean. Aiden assures Emily that he didnít tamper with the brakes. Heís also upset to learn that Jack knows the truth about her identity. Conrad also shares some truth. He was misdiagnosed with Huntingtonís Disease. Now he can back to his destiny of leading the Grayson family.

Nolan returns from his Florida trip a little wiser than he was when he left. The information he received was enough to encourage him to make a move on Patrick. Itís a move thatís initially rejected. Patrick ultimately assures Nolan that there is, indeed, something between them before the two of them share a kiss. This salacious smooch has Nolan channeling his inner-Uncle Jesse by letting out a little ďhave mercyĒ cry.

Back at the Stowaway, Jack gets the scoop about Conrad from Emily. This has him wanting to attend her wedding so he can be there when she takes down the Graysons. Emily doesnít want to put him in danger. This may be something thatís out of her control. Aiden tells Conrad that Jack is the one who tampered with his brakes because he wants him dead.
