(From ABC)
Dire circumstance leads Emily to take extreme measures against both the Graysons and those closest to her.

(Recap From ABC)
Charlotte is bound and gagged by a masked figure. She’s tied to a chair in a rundown TV studio. The masked figure places a newspaper featuring a cover story about Pascal’s death on Charlotte’s lap. Her captor leaves the studio and removes his mask. It’s Aiden. He steps over to Emily, who is recording Charlotte with a video camera. She sends the image to Conrad demanding in a disguised voice that he confess to framing an innocent man. Emily emphatically lets a worried Nolan know that this plan doesn’t end until Victoria and Conrad are behind bars.

Conrad tries to contact one of his hired guns. He wants to meet with him at the wharf. He has no idea that his voicemail message was intercepted by Nolan. A box is waiting for him at the wharf. It contains a video of Charlotte being smacked around. A bloody ear is also found inside to warn that Conrad to not disobey orders again. Charlotte was never really hurt. The video came courtesy of the MyClone app. Nolan asks Emily what it’ll be like to go back to being Amanda Clarke when all this is over. The truth is she has no idea who that person is anymore.

Victoria is still mourning the loss of Pascal. She vows that Conrad will pay. Emily, too. She and Daniel have a hunch Ems was the Homeland Security agent that was in contact with Pascal. Margaux is surprised to learn that Daniel shares her belief that Conrad killed her father. She found security footage of an unidentifiable woman who was at the scene. As for Victoria, she swipes a sampling from little Carl. She is later horrified when Conrad tells her Charlotte has been abducted.

Charlotte is shown videos to prove that Conrad framed David Clarke. He had help with the cover-up that claimed even more lives including Declan. Jack is concerned when he hears from Javier that Charlotte is missing. He tracks down Emily, Aiden and Nolan. Jack is shocked to see what they are doing to Charlotte. Aiden agrees that things are getting out of hand. Charlotte needs something to calm down. Emily agrees to get her a sedative. A detective stops her before she can return. Daniel is behind this.

Aiden assures Jack that he will see the girl he once cherished again once the plan comes to fruition. When he’s left alone at the TV station, Jack frees Charlotte. She has no idea it’s him as he leads her back to the outskirts of Grayson Manor. As for Aiden, he attacks Daniel in the police station. The detective releases Emily. He has a hunch about her and believes Daniel Grayson should be worried. Speaking of Daniel, he shares a somewhat intimate moment with Margaux outside the police station.

Conrad is shocked to see Charlotte return moments before he’s to confess in a press conference. His daughter is unhurt but angry. Charlotte knows he’s to blame for the terrorist bombing of Flight 197. She threatens to go to the police. Conrad assures her that’s not going to happen. If she even thinks of crossing him he will erase her has he has done to so many others. Conrad has no idea that his confession is being broadcast to the world thanks to a camera that was attached to Charlotte’s jacket.

The authorities arrive to take Conrad in. Victoria opens the front door for them. She bids Conrad adieu while hoping that he rots in hell. Just down the beach, Emily is happy that Conrad has been taken down. Victoria is still out there though. Aiden wants her to think about that tomorrow as he kisses her. Their lip-lock is cut short by a visit from Jack, who now realizes why Aiden had asked him to let Charlotte go. That’s not why he’s there though. Jack tells Emily about the shrine that was made to her father at the house where the letters from David Clarke were traced. The ring he found was, indeed, her father’s.

Victoria was never going to attend the press conference with Conrad. She was sure that Charlotte was never in any real danger. She was right about that. She also assures Daniel that she was right about Emily Thorne. She now has some sort of proof about her suspicions. As for Conrad, he realizes Emily was behind his undoing when she visits him in prison. He wishes her the best as she now focuses on Victoria.
